Title: The TV shows you've seen recently thread.
Post by: Diunx on October 05, 2009, 06:51:29 PM
This is pretty much the same as the movies thread but about tv shows, so don't fucking ignore this thread and keep posting about tv shows on the movies thread :punch

I'm going to use the first post to express my love for Miami Ink, that show is awesome, the custumers always have this sad stories about loss friends/families and life changing events to justify their shitty tattoes.

In the last episode I saw there was this girl who lost her best friend so she decided to get a tattoo of a crying gothic chick right above her ass crack, what better way to remember your friend than with a tattoo that requires two mirrors just so you can see it.

Entourage had a pretty great season finale last night.

I really have a love/hate relationship with the show. I kind of wish it was only about Ari.

Eh, Entourage has really gotten worse as its gone on. At times, its almost unwatchable.

I have not seen last night's Curb episode, because OnDemand didn't update yet.

I'm just glad to have Curb, Dexter, It's Always Sunny in Philly, Fringe and House all on at the same time. If Venture Bros. was back, it'd be perfect.

and iirc, HBO shows from the most recent seasons are watched closely.  Everyone was getting nailed with the Wire, but now you can DL the Wire all you want.


my most recent show-- 3rd season of the Venture Brothers on Blu-ray.  Looked very crisp and nice.  The season itself had some amazing moments.  They really have a pretty fucking awesome set of characters and sub-stories to draw from...they could do a whole season without the actual venture brothers/rusty/brock team and still turn out something amazing.  Not that I would want that.  

Now I get to wait two years for the next blu-ray to come out.  I hope they release seasons 1 and 2 on blu-ray in the meantime and uncensored.  

Just a shame there's more cock than boobs.  Just the invisible woman and a dr. girlfriend nipple slip.  yes, I was keeping track :lol

Last night's Seth McFarlene animated hour-and-a-half:

Family Guy: Not bad, but nowhere near the level of amazing that was the previous week's Stewie and Brian multiverse-hopping episode.
American Dad: Pretty good episode.  The Roger/Stan-centric episodes are always fun.
The Cleveland Show: Mediocre at best.  Cleveland was not the right character to make a spin-off show about.  Will be surprised if it gets renewed for another season.

Well it shows you the gender roles and the hypocrisy of the time period from the point of view of professional bullshitters.  I thought it was going to be sort of boring and cheesy but it's actually very good.  You can probably tell if you'll like the show after the first episode.

Well anyways, I just recently started watching season 1, you can really tell the difference in time. But hey, It makes me feel a little nostalgic, it's like it's 1993/94 again. :P

So far, only half way through season 1. It's alright, something to veg to I suppose. From what I've gathered, people say 2-4 are the best seasons.

Did it ever get better than the first few episodes? I watched 5 or so and thought it suffered from the typical problem of serialized TV shows: a need to maintain absolute status quo so that the episodes can be syndicated and viewed in any order. Knowing that nothing can change is perhaps ironically appropriate to the material, but it killed all suspense for me.
Title: Re: The TV shows you've seen recently thread.
Post by: Bildi on October 20, 2009, 08:43:04 PM
It surprisingly does get a lot better by the end of season one.  I trudged through the first two boring episodes and then just watched bits of episodes occasionally having basically written it off.  But I joined in again about episode 7 to give it another chance and it got progressively better to season end as some more interesting storylines developed.

Looking at the episode lists I realise I did indeed see episode 9 being the season finale - I thought it was very good and the best episode yet.

The series does not follow that. There are a few filler episodes in the second season that fill as if they could be taken out without effecting the plot. It does have an evolving storyline where the characters change and do things that effects the rest of the storyline.

As far as the series go I remember watching the leaked first episode a while back and laughed it off, thinking the series was going to be trash. After the show ended and I kept hearing how much better it got as it progressed I decided to force myself to sit down and watch all of the 2 seasons. I ended up really liking it at the end.  It actually felt more "Terminator" than the last two movies with all the actors playing their parts pretty well (and in some cases better).  The good and bad is that the second season ends on a very high (yet frustrating) note. As far as fearing if the show "plays it safe" it did surprise me a few times on how they handle certain characters. I think it's worth a watch by anyone who felt burnt by the last two films. It's a far better Terminator 3 than Terminator 3.

Yeah season 1 was good, but they never expected it to blow up when it started and it shows. The 3 seasons after that you can really see the show get amazing. The mid nineties setting is so cool too, with internet and mobile phones coming up. Man I love the X-Files.

Yeah, I just started Season 2, and so far it's pretty cool. I think So far Season 2 is by far better then season 1, you can tell they got more funding for Season 2. Production is a lot better. Less corny. :P

That was one of the best episodes I've seen from the series in years. If there's any character on TV that deserves a spin-off, it's Butters.

They switched show runners four shows in, after the midseason finale, for whatever reason. Maybe ABC, much like us, didn't like what they saw. So there is a chance it could get better... next year.

That is, if it even lasts until next year.

They finally wrapped up the Donna secret and I'm glad that Chibs came clean about what he did.  It's going to be really interesting to see the fallout from the Irish getting arrested by the ATF and seeing how the MC can get some guns and whatever.  My bet is that Weston will become a gun source when they show him Zobelle's hypocrisy and that they'll eventually double-cross Weston.

Whatever happens, it's going to be awesome.  I just hope half-sack doesn't lose his last nut.  You can't change his name this late in the series.

Well so far I find Season 4 to be the most interesting so far. Season 3 behind right behind it and Season 1 behind that (Season 2 at the bottom). Hulu already spoilered something with Locke due to the stupid preview icons just below the actual video area (something in Season 5). I like a lot of the characters on the show but Desmond's scenario in the later part of Season 3 and into Season 4 is f'ing fantastic.

Post by: OptimoPeach on November 19, 2009, 11:38:37 AM
That sounds about right. S4 is nice because it's so tightly written (and in comparison to S5 there's nothing too hokey). It was right around the middle of S3 that ABC finally gave them a deadline for the show, so there's a lot less filler. Plus, they didn't have as many episodes to work with because of the writers' strike.

And yes, :bow Desmond :bow2

For what it's worth I finished of Season 5 the other day, and found it a great deal better than Season 4.  S4 had too many subplots and felt so meandering, whereas everything in S5 is much more tightly interwoven.  I enjoyed the way things at the Baltimore Sun paralleled or contrasted the way things happened within the homicide department or in the mayor's office.  I am pretty pissed about the way things ended with Omar. 
spoiler (click to show/hide)
He really didn't have a place on the show anymore anyway, so why even bother bringing him back just to kill him off like a punk?
[close]
    It's a shame Marlo gets so little attention from the writers, because the few bits he got that year were actually pretty decent.  For some reason my favorite characters of the season were Snoop and Clay Davis :lol 

Again I feel like the show loses dramatic effect as a result of its formula.  Since it's the last season you kinda hope that there will be some kind of victory, but ultimately you know that the bad guys are gonna win because that's how it has so consistently happened in years prior.

In retrospect I guess Season 2 was only frustrating because you wanted to get back to the Barksdale case and the writers refuse to do so (plus it took literally 3/4 of the season before McNulty got materially involved).  I look forward to revisiting S2 if the show ever sees a BluRay release or something, because I can't fairly determine how it'd rank in my mind.  Other than that.....S1 > S3 > S5 > S4
Title: Re: The TV shows you've seen recently thread.

S5...better than S4?  ???

Marlo had one of the best endings in S5 imo. Omar..
spoiler (click to show/hide)
In many ways it was apt that he would get killed by a nobody, and then have his body mis-labeled at the coroner's office. No one is bigger than the corner/streets, it's a revolving door. I liked how the last episode showed various characters stepping into vacated shoes of characters from S1 (Michael essentially becoming a new Omar, Leander taking McNulty's place, etc).
[close]


anyway I'm still re-watching Lost so I can be up-to-date for S5. I'm kinda stuck on S3. I'll try to watch some episodes tonight but eh, I remember why I didn't like the first half of this season. The show kinda eggs you on from mystery to mystery, but as the world gets bigger the mysteries become smaller, at least to me.

Watched a couple episodes of season 3 of Star Trek: TNG. The first was "Captain's Vacation" where Picard goes on vacation, makes out with a woman, and punches a Ferengi. It was super-cheesy from start to finish, laughably so, but still fun to watch I suppose. The other was "Sins of the Father" where Worf goes back to the Klingon home world after his deceased father is branded a traitor to the empire. It was, for a nice change of pace, super-awesome, and gave a lot of insight into the workings of Klingon society and honor system. Plus, you can't go wrong with having Picard get into a fist-fight in the middle of a street with some Klingon thugs.

I'm the only one who thought the seasons got worse each year.

S1 > S2 > S3 > S4 > S5

I thought Season 1 was brilliant because it broke down the various roadblocks Daniels and Co. had to knock down to get a simple wiretap.  Plus it did a good job fleshing out the characters, which was vital to how the rest of the show played out.

Season 2 was the next best because it had McNulty in a limited role.  I have to admit I simply did not give a fuck about his character as time went on.  It was almost bizarro-emo: why did I have to give a fuck that he was making a wreck of himself because of what was going on?  The Shield was much better than The Wire in the sense that the characters were more interesting.  I cared why Vic did the things he did.  McNulty?  I couldn't care less.  The amount of post Season 1 McNulty negatively affected the rest of the seasons.  Strangely enough, I liked the character at first but he became dead weight.  I also liked the union plot.  I wished they had fleshed it out more in further seasons but I'm in the minority here but I did like the little nods to S2 here and there for S3-S5.  That and Brother Mouzone :bow2

Season 3 was ok because I thought the Barksdale arc was taking too long to conclude.  I did like how they rolled out the Stanfield arc and the political angles in general.  The downside was that the police angle was unraveling in terms of the watertight logic they employed in S1.  This logic would only further unravel as the show went on but it was clear here that the show crossed the Rubicon into zaniness that the show was supposed to be against (and still was, except the police stuff).

Season 4 had the sole advantage of the Barksdale arc no longer being in the way (except for the nods here and there, which I liked) and I did like the school angle but that was it.  McNulty was simply not necessary here.  I cared even less about what went on with him and the convoluted angles the plot took to still consider him a crucial character.  I did like Stanfield doing what he did but the characters were less interesting than the Barksdale world.  The police politics were completely ridiculous.

Season 5 was the worst.  The newspaper thing was a joke.  McNulty?  Joke.  The police politics made the full-on press into insanity yet the show still tried to take itself seriously.  The show had good writing but the plot lines were such a jumbled mess.  Although I did think the show had a pretty decent conclusion, wrapping things up the best way it could.

This. Although sometimes I feel S2>S1. S2 has an amazing middle/end but it starts pretty slow with lots of "hey remember the cool stuff we did in S1? Yea that was fun, I wish we could do something like that again...nah I'm working in this dimly lit basement filing papers" talk

-I wish Campbell wasn't such a detestable heel. They did a great job with casting, because the actor really looks the part of a slimy douchebag
-Some of the supporting characters are exceedingly dull. I'd name who, but they're so vapid and boring that I didn't catch their names. Glasses Guy, Amateur Writer Guy, Pipe-smoking Guy, and so on. Maybe I'm just not the most perceptive person. I do like Salvatore and Joan

- As am nintenho said, Campbell becomes more likable.

oh yeah, I looked up the smoking rates for that time period and smoking in the US peaked in 1955 at about 50% and this show takes place just a few years after that.  Plus they work in a high-stress environment and they get free cigs from their Lucky Strikes contract so it makes sense that they're all chimneys.  They privately acknowledge away from Lucky Strikes executives that it's a very unhealthy habit though.

WTF??

The point of the show is to show how the social attitudes of the general population, and the advertisers advertising to those people of course, are changing in the early '60s.  I would HATE everything about most of the characters, including draper, in real life but it's still a really interesting show and probably the best writing on TV.  My conclusion is that you have no taste.  At all.

But there is no good or bad guy in 99% of the episodes and there's no kitschy reality show scenarios.  It's like any period movie or whatever only it's about relatively uninteresting people who's job is to follow trends and make interesting/creative ideas.  From a plot standpoint, people don't just fuck around/smoke/drink.  It's a little bit more than that.

Mad Men is exceedingly well written and rarely as cut and dry as it appears on the surface.  Admittedly, it doesn't mean much if you struggle to find the setting even remotely interesting or the characters particularly engaging, but there's quite a lot of depth if you're willing to look for it.  If you're lazy, The AV Club does a nice job dissecting the frequent and numerous integrated literary allusions and cultural idiosyncrasies of the period.

And Draper is just plain awesome.

Post by: The Fake Shemp on November 30, 2009, 04:57:28 PM
It's a competent production to be sure, and I don't think I ever said it was poorly written. All I said is I don't find it compelling, and I still don't. It's a period piece and if you're enamored with that - great - but you couldn't pay me to watch another episode.

Lots of things are well produced, Maurice, and not necessarily interesting. Think of every Ken Burns documentary ever made.

My opinion on Mad Men is similar to that of my opinion on The Sopranos, which everyone loved, but I thought was a facsimile of better mafia stories (Goodfellas, anyone?). It was competent and its cinematography was stunning for cable television, but I could never get into it. And I really tried.

I would argue that the writing is better on Mad Men, though.

And yes, I agree, it's no Chuck.

I've never been the biggest Sopranos fan, but always give it credit at least for kickstarting the recent Golden Age of TV.

I always like too how they'd sometimes build up story lines until they were ready to climax and then just have them fizzle and drop them. The story arcs were usually unpredictable.

A lesser series would revolve around this as a gimmicky plot device (like Dexter without all the killing), but I think Mad Men has handled it well, as silly as it is.  Draper's true identity is a chink in his armor; it reveals him as weak, vulnerable, and as a coward.  It threatens to dismantle everything he has ever accomplished.  It is a rather blunt way to expose character flaws, and I don't think it's necessary for the series, but it doesn't detract from it.

I can't believe you'd complain about some of the cooler supporting characters (Kinsey!) and then go on to praise Joan.  She is the biggest bore on the show.  She's just a bitch.  Not a conniving, backstabbing bitch that does interesting things....a boring bitch.  All she does is scold people and give jealous looks.  The actress is so gorgeous that with every episode I pray that they'll give her something cool to do or say....but nope.....the scant handful of subplots involving her are all dull.

I love Mad Men as a whole.  It's very easily the best show to come out since The Shield/The Wire.  I'd easily rank it above faves like Dexter and Battlestar.  I love how everyone inhabits this world of facades and etiquette, and so much gets said or unsaid between the lines.  It's really refreshing, since most shows set in a modern era have everyone saying and acting exactly as they feel.  Everyone acts out almost immediately - nobody ever has to just suck it down.  Only Deadwood ever dealt with anything similar.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magical_negro

The magical negro is a supporting, often mystical stock character in fiction who, by use of special insight or powers, helps the white protagonist get out of trouble.

The magical negro is typically but not always "in some way outwardly or inwardly disabled, either by discrimination, disability or social constraint," often a janitor or prisoner.[5] He has no past; he simply appears one day to help the white protagonist.[6] He sometimes fits the black stereotype, "prone to criminality and laziness."[7] To counterbalance this, he has some sort of magical power, "rather vaguely defined but not the sort of thing one typically encounters."[6] He is patient and wise, often dispensing various words of wisdom, and is "closer to the earth.


You can't argue that Lester Freamon doesn't have a little bit of magic in him :)  He helps The White Man (Prezbo especially).....he has a folksy charm....he has unique insights and revelations....he is disabled and discriminated against (he starts off running the evidence locker, and is further discredited and abused by police high command).  You know they would have put Morgan Freeman in that role if they could afford him.

I asked my dad about smoking in Mad Men and he said it was easily as prevalent then as it is in Mad Men.  I still can't believe how people smoked EVERYWHERE.  Even in their own homes.....you'd think that people wouldn't want their bedrooms and living rooms smelling like an ashtray, but I guess everyone was so used to the scent that it didn't really stick out.

My stepmom also said that infidelity was probably as common as it was on the show, but that premarital sex was not.  Which is weird, because it seems like you stand to lose so much more by cheating on a spouse than you would just sleeping around.

Post by: Mandark on December 02, 2009, 03:52:29 AM
Yeah, at first he seems like the standard, wise old mentor figure whose main purpose is to serendipitously arrive and guide the main characters.  They're definitely aware of the archetype because they subvert it for comic effect later on.  But he has his own history, motivations, and agenda.

They practically explain what his character really is:  an older version of McNulty, who's wised up enough to make peace with the system.  Drawing parallels between a black and a white character in this way isn't a huge social statement, but it's also something that rarely happens on TV, like Jay Bilas comparing a European prospect to a black NBA player.



PS If you like the Wire, you should think about reading David Simon's Homicide book.  It's really good, crisp narrative nonfiction and you'll be able to spot anecdotes, lines and ideas that were used in the show.  Harry Edgerton was obviously the starting point for McNulty and Freamon, just like he was for Andre Braugher's character in Homicide.




PPS Don't believe your mom, border.  People were schtupping like rabbits according to Kinsey.  If there was less premarital sex, it's cause there was a pretty sharp drop in the marriage age post-WW2 (which everyone then internalized as being "normal").

yeah 4 seasons actually.  I think that black guy with the glasses who knows hella shit about everything and who always hits on the striper has some magic negroness going on.  He's the smartest and most charismatic character on the show.

Which one is Kinsey? I'd look it up but I'm afraid of spoilers. I've only seen up to the 3rd episode of S2, so maybe it just takes some time for the writers to flesh them out, or (again) maybe I'm just inattentive.

... It was a pretty great episode. The Triad is awesome, and they need more screen time. If anything, that speaks to the quality of writing, that the show has successfully created so many likable characters that there's not enough screen time for all of them.

Modern Family is pretty great, yeah. I'm having trouble remembering now because I watched all the episodes in a night or two, but I think there was only one episode that I felt was weak. The narrated life lessons they sometimes have at the end of episodes can get kinda mawkish at times, but I've been a bigger fan of worse shows that straight up abused that same plot device (Scrubs), so that blemish isn't a particularly big deal for me or anything.

I got bored of Mad Men (lol) for now, but I think that show is better digested in small doses anyway. Fringe seemed like the perfect alternate, and the buzz on the last page pushed me over the edge even though I wasn't exactly enthralled by the first couple of episodes. Stuff really starts to pick up about halfway through the first season, and the monster-of-the-week format makes things more palatable in the episodes where there's a lapse in plot progression. Especially nice compared to something like LOST, where sometimes you end up feeling like you just pissed away 45 minutes on nothing (Wow, the meaning of Jack's tattoo, how absorbing). It's nice to have a formula to fall back on.

Whoever said the characters grow on you was mostly right. The banter between Peter and Walter is especially amusing, and I think Noble does a nice job of conveying depth with a character that might have ended up being an uninspired take on the mad scientist archetype had the role been filled by a lesser actor. I was rolling my eyes at his bullshit in the first few episodes, but yeah, he grew on me big time. On the other hand, Olivia was wooden from start to finish. I really don't know if she's intended to be a cipher for the audience to experience the show through by proxy, or if the writers (cough Abram cough) are just a bunch of reclusive nerds to whom the female mind is an esoteric wonder. Either way, Olivia and her assistant are both bland, but I'm actually okay with it for now. It's obviously a show that is more driven by plot than characters, and I'll be happy as long as the series has been thought out better than LOST was.

Planning on starting S2 later.

Oh, and what was the big spoiler Saint Cornelius blurted out in a Fringe thread a while ago?

It's terrible when the singing/teenage drama is going on, but the people they cast as the comic relief (like the staff at the school) are pretty funny.  I agree with you though, it's not great.

Quote from: http://flightoftheconchords.co.nz/2009/12/december-10th/
Bret, Jemaine and James (co-creator/director) said “we’ve noticed the less we say about the future of the show, the more people want to talk about it, so in an effort to reverse this trend we are today announcing that we won’t be returning for a 3rd season. We’re very proud of the two seasons we made and we like the way the show ended. We’d like to thank everyone who helped make the show and also everyone who watched it. While the characters Bret and Jemaine will no longer be around, the real Bret and Jemaine will continue to exist.

Good for them. I'm a big fan of ending shows after a couple of seasons, instead of dragging them out forever. I don't think this season was as consistent as their first, but some of their original material was incredible and I think a few of my favorite scenes from the entire run were from this season.

I've been watching the BBC's JEKYLL starring James Nesbitt and that luscious doll from Leverage, Gina Bellman.

As you can guess, it's an update of the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story. I'm three episodes in, but am enjoying both the humor and suspense. It's only six episodes long, I think (3 discs, 2 eps each so far) so I'll be done with it after a few more train rides (yay, Handbrake (http://handbrake.fr/)). Anyway, Nesbitt is excellent.

GOD CLAUDETTE IS SUCH A SANCTIMONIOUS TWAT

spoiler (click to show/hide)
Stirring up a humongous shitstorm because some public defender had an Oxy habit? This is the most paltry semblance of iniquity she's crusaded against yet! Why is she so hellbent on forcing everyone to play by the rules ALL THE TIME? Seems kinda dubious that she'd risk letting a multitude of guilty criminals (not to mention the guy that shot Oxy-bitch in the fucking face) walk at the minuscule chance that the attorney's habit affected her ability to properly defend an innocent suspect. It's nauseatingly pious even for Claudette, and it's so obtuse that it feels like a heavy-handed allusion to that saying about letting 1000 guilty men go free rather than imprison a single innocent. What a load of shit

I haven't even watched ROME (but I'm about buy the Blu-ray set as a Christmas gift to myself), but this wikipedia quote still saddens me:

Quote
I discovered halfway through writing the second season the show was going to end. The second was going to end with the death of Brutus. Third and fourth season would be set in Egypt. Fifth was going to be the rise of the messiah in Palestine. But because we got the heads-up that the second season would be it, I telescoped the third and fourth season into the second one, which accounts for the blazing speed we go through history near the end. There's certainly more than enough history to go around.

That would have been fucking awesome.
Title: Re: The TV shows you've seen recently thread.
Post by: Akala on December 22, 2009, 07:14:31 PM
you may have a diffent opinion once you see it. the second season is a bit stuffed, but it doesn't end badly. the planned third and fourth seasons may have been good, but given the context of the rest of the series, I think the fifth would have been strange.

HBO and the BBC should go in on JERUSALEM. could be sacrilicious.

I think it's definitely worth a watch. It skips around so it can cover the most pivotal moments of Adams' life, so it almost feels a bit incomplete, but what's there is pretty great and also interesting. I didn't know much about Adams myself before watching, and I feel like that arguably makes it better, as he's almost a forgotten man since his contemporaries were Washington, Jefferson and Franklin. It delves into the jealousy Adams has of those men; how he realizes history will not remember him as fondly as those three.

Fucking awesome stuff, really embarrasses US shows with similar themes and cast profiles.

Holy shit just got caught up on Community, I'm so glad I saw the early eps before they came off Hulu. What an excellent, wonderful show. Awesome cast, awesome writing.
I only saw the first ep, but loved it. I'm going to have to grab it somehow.

You can skip up to the Jack Black episode, the show really doesn't hit its stride until then. Everything before is basically every TV show cliche you can imagine, but with good acting.

Can someone spoil heroes for me, I gave up on the show on like episode 4 of this season but I heard that shit got pretty crazy.

Shit did in fact NOT get crazy. They're STILL being distinguished mentally-challenged fellows. Samuel finally found his reason to be evil - he got dumped by his girlfriend, so he leveled an entire city

I think theres only like 3 episodes left

Well, I was sort of looking for a reason not to get invested in it anyway. Too many other things that I want to watch instead.

But seriously, unless it features bestiality, dislocating little girls' jaws, torture, slaughtering pacifists, and all the other little things that make a great Terry Goodkind book, I'm just not all that interested in the first place.

Ah. I actually stopped keeping up after the eighth or ninth episode, so maybe I haven't gotten to the weaker bits now.

And it's funny that EmCee mentioned Scrubs, because from what I saw the pacing reminded me a lot of Scrubs circa S3 (aka non-shitty Scrubs) which was a big attraction for me. I think I remember hearing that they nabbed a couple of the old Scrubs writers as well

So. Good. The only thing I can't really deal with is after The Observer episode, it seems like Astrid should have A Big Fucking Trust Issue with Walter from that point on outward. But she doesn't show it in the subsequent couple episodes.

This goes for pretty much every show on US broadcast television, unfortunately. British way is 6 episodes, though. HBO/cable shows have the sweet spot at about a dozen eps a season, I think.

This goes for pretty much every show on US broadcast television, unfortunately. British way is 6 episodes, though. HBO/cable shows have the sweet spot at about a dozen eps a season, I think.

Agreed.  I think most countries do it this way (12-13 ep seasons) except the US, though.  Just one of the weird things about American TV when compared to the rest of the world.

Hell, some UK series are only 12 episodes. Shows here tend to either run until it's pure soap, or get killed before it even gets a chance to get off the ground. Watching MI-5, it's also refreshing to see pure focus on scenarios, and not on individual characters. Keeps it fresh and unpredictable.

Swedish crime dramas at least used to be short run as well, more like miniseries than standard TV series, with higher production values, better pacing and more content in each episode.

Pretty sure I just spoiled Six Feet Under for myself big time when I was looking up an S1 scene on YouTube. Was looking for this:

And one of the suggestions YouTube spit out as I was typing in the search box was

GODDAMNIT. I'm on the finale of S2 so I guess it isn't that big of a deal since I kinda figured already that's where it's heading anyway what with the

progression of his condition

Don't worry, by the time anything that happens that is spoilable, the show is unwatchably bad.
How far are we talking? After I posted that I got a few eps into S3 where suddenly every character's life is Claire levels of boring, and I'm already feeling burnt out

Thanks for that; I was having trouble identifying what was bothering me about what I've seen. There have been some wonderful eps, but a few have that sad, monster-of-the-week feeling that X-Files had whenever they didn't do a story arc episode.

I am delighted Southland came back.

Last night's episode of Big Love was just amazing.

There's been some good stuff, but there are way too many plotlines going on for a nine episode season.
This is true.  I think a lot of the political stuff will get delayed to next season.

I have no idea what they're going to do tomorrow night.

I still think the road trip episode from season three is the best episode they've ever done.

I'm behind two episodes, but so far it's good. Starts out rather slow, then you get a couple awesome episodes back to back. Basically at the beginning, if you're mainly a Locke fan you'll find every other episode to be quite meh, until things pick up later

I am. Its sort of a hard watch though, some of the subject matters and the decision taken by Walt are very "What would you do?" moments and the splitting path from what I would do makes it hard to empathize with Walt but I still feel for him on a certain level. In that sense its packing a punch.

the other night I was high I popped in the first season of Harvey Birdman Attorney at Law. Finished watching it the next morning.

I've decided that Harvey Birdman is my favorite animated show of all time. THE greatest. It was near the top anyways, but my goodness. The voices, the writing, the LAW, I fucking LOOOOOVE it.

I hated Peanut sooooo much. He completely ruins the show.

Why? :(

Because he's obnoxious.

It was this episode about a scientist who looks like a bat I think(been a while) who spreads disease and the professor sacrifices himself and what ever.

I thought it was mediocre, thats it. Not horrible, but nothing to be hyped about.

You gotta approach it like X-Files. When a Monster of the Week episode is on, you'll either like the episode or not. With that said, the show is definitely intriguing, you gotta' hit it up from the beginning.

I don't wanna take the X-files/Fringe comparison too far, other than if you dug the Monster of the Week formula Fringe might have something to offer you, but one thing I like about it is how Olivia is almost charmingly bland in a similar way that Mulder and Scully were.

Having just picked up the show recently, I can certainly agree with that. But it does get much better (even though they could have easily cut out almost half of the episodes) and the end of season 1 is such a shit brix surprise that it made up for any shortcomings. Not sure if you're into Lost, but I tried and I can't get into it, but I found myself liking this show. Maybe that comparison will work


I picked up the first four seasons of Its Always Sunny this week. The show is pretty hilarious, with my fave being Mac Bangs Dennis' Mom so far. The characters are very true to life

I wonder if anybody can help me with this.

Was anybody here a viewer of Adult Swim when it first started? I'm trying to hunt down this video that I remember playing before like the first Space Ghost episode, where it was just the guys behind Adult Swim having this conference. Not sure if it was Adult Swim guys or if it was serious or important/entertaining, I just remember it so clearly and yet I never understood what they were talking about.

I'd love to see this video again but I have no idea what so search for. Maybe someone who was older when they saw that has a clearer memory of what exactly it was, but I can't recall more than just a video of some dudes at a conference as a lead-in to a Space Ghost episode, and I'm pretty sure Mike Lazzo was in it.

Still going through Fringe season one. Just watched "Killer App" or something with the computer virus which liquified brains. It was the first one that really stood out as a complete monster of the week (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MonsterOfTheWeek) episode, and I was a little sad  to feel something outside the continuity they'd been establishing with DHS/Massive Dynamics/other-big-badguys. After the bit where Mitchell Loeb and his wife; that was a really good ep, and the computer virus one was on par with a bad ep of X-Files.

Post by: Bloodwake on April 06, 2010, 05:18:07 AM
This is my TV schedule so far (since I'm taking a brief break from film at the moment)

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2

I know, I know. It's trash TV, but I like it somewhat. Honestly it's getting to the point it's so distinguished mentally-challenged it's funny. Plus there were a few touches so far in this season that reminded me of the better episodes of Firefly. It's a time waster.

X-Files Season 5

I'm rewatching the X-Files seasons and planning to see the newest movie (even though it probably sucks). I'm a fan of the show but I don't really remember too much of it other than key episodes. It's fun to relive the series, even though seasons one and two have HORRIBLE DVD transfers. I'm about to start season five after finishing Buffy. I'm also curious as to how bad the series gets in the last three seasons. I seemed to find enough motivation to keep watching up until season nine, where I just sorta lost interest. I'm interested enough to see just how bad they are.

Lost season 2 (along with season 6)

I'm rewatching Lost mainly to see if I can notice anything that links the older seasons to the newer ones. So far I've seen a lot of stuff in season one but not in season two that relates to season 6. I usually just watch this if I can't find anything else on.

I'm also watching the Ultimate Fighter this season because I have finally grown to accept that the WWE will continue to suck for a long, long time and I should just watch real people really beating the shit out of each other. I've also decided to watch the rest of the final season of 24 when it hits blu-ray. If 24 is bad enough that I can't watch it, they've reached new lows.

Edit: Oh yeah, I'm watching STEVEN MOFFAT'S DOCTOR WHO WHICH IS FULL OF ASSKICK AND WIN.

For the last episode, I really don't know what Walter's wife is thinking.  If she's doing this for revenge or if she really just doesn't love him anymore.

Also, the previews of next week's episode seems to imply that Jesse and Walt are going to be cooking again which doesn't really make sense for either of them.

Maybe Gustavo or Tuco's cousins are putting pressure on them?

Watched most of Mad Men.

When I say most of it, I mean I got into the habit during the second season of FFWDing through parts that I thought would bore me, including entire subplots.  I feel guilty for admitting this, but I just didn't care enough about the stifled housewife bits and whatever that thing was between Peggy and the priest.  The office stuff was way more dynamic and exciting, which is partly the point I guess.

Maybe I'll go through it later and appreciate the whole thing, and it'll be like how I couldn't stay focused on Updike stories at first cause it was just a bunch of white people cheating on each other.

Seriously, South Park vs. Muhammed is one for the history books. Comedy Central apparently censored out his likeness and even mentions of his name after those Muslim extremists released the statement basically threatening Trey Parker and Matt Stone's lives. I tried to watch the episode and this is what I got:

In the 14 years we've been doing South Park we have never done a show that we couldn't stand behind. We delivered our version of the show to Comedy Central and they made a determination to alter the episode. It wasn't some meta-joke on our part. Comedy Central added the bleeps. In fact, Kyle's customary final speech was about intimidation and fear. It didn't mention Muhammad at all but it got bleeped too. We'll be back next week with a whole new show about something completely different and we'll see what happens to it.

Why? There is no reason to bleep ANYTHING. It's hypocritical that on an episode mocking Jesus, Buddha etc. (and Tom Cruise :smug) Muhammed gets special treatment just because some assholes threatened CC and Parker/Stone with violence. It totally defeats the purpose.

They shouldn't do it because of threats of violence, but even muslim art censors the face since muslims see any depiction of him as a pretty big step towards idolatry and wouldn't really be able to watch the show even if they know that it's  not meant in such a way (at least if they were as religious as I was).  Ideally, they would have just censored the face but made fun of Islam much more.  It makes no sense to cut the speech at the end.

FTR, I'm not defending the death threats.

I'm just saying that it would have been better if they actually tried to accommodate one practice in the religion while at the same time trying harder to make fun of the religion and it's practitioners.  Most of the muslims I know wouldn't have a problem with South Park making fun of their religion but they wouldn't feel comfortable if it shows the prophet's face.

Finished up season 2 of True Blood. It's fun because of some of the performances and the funny often dead on characterizations of the South but the plotting unfortunately is a weakness of the show. I assume these flaws also existed in the books which carries over to the show. I found the first half of the season really enjoyable but it weakens as the season goes on and the finale stuff is pretty lame.

Title: Re: The TV shows you've seen recently thread.
Post by: Stoney Mason on April 30, 2010, 12:42:27 AM
While many of the familiar vampire tropes exist in True Blood placing it in the South gives it a somewhat different feel than stuff like Twilight, or Interview with the Vampire, or some of many other recent examples. It's as much about sort of satirizing the South and also sort of a loving homage to some of it as it is about Vampires.

Like I said, the problem is more with the plotting. The characterization stuff is great. But they don't really know how to put all the pieces together to tell a cohesive story.

My guess is that this is really going to drive Hank over the edge.  Maybe he'll figure that since he was tipped off about the twins by a call to his cell phone, that Jesse Pinkman was somehow involved, especially since he dropped the charges against him that day.  It might mean that he'll think Jesse tried to kill him or that he actually tried to save him.

The DEA will most likely figure out that the twins are related to Tuco and believe that this was done for revenge but then if Schrader makes that connection to Jesse, then they may also assume that Jesse is involved with a Cartel somehow.  The big question is if they'll actually send Schrader away to witness protection or something now that they know that the cartel is supposedly willing to kill a DEA agent.

So I've been plowing through LOST lately. Started at season one about a month ago and am about three quarters through season five. Season five so far is pretty shitty. It started off cool, but now they're just goofing off in the 70s and nothing's really happening. At least when things moved slow in the past it was because they were dangling a carrot in front of your face. There is literally nothing happening! I hope the rest of season five and season six get better.

Season 8 of 24 has been good. I'd say the second half of this season has been better than nearly every second half of a 24 season; that's usually when things pivot for the worse, but the momentum has  been pretty steady this season.

I've been watching Homicide. My dad said it's  better than The Wire and let me borrow his collection. Sadly he only has later seasons so I started with S3. It's good for the most part, but at the same time I don't see how anyone can say it's better than The Wire. Homicide focuses entirely on the police department, and the cops aren't even that interesting. You get no sense of the streets, in fact I wouldn't know it happens in Baltimore if the title screen didn't mention it. It might as well be a cop show in Gotham.

the quality on that site is rather bad and so is the 350mb torrent, imo. it's a pretty beautifully shot series, so i'd recommend downloading the 720p version. it's little over a gig per episode, but it does the show justice; it looks fucking incredible.

btw, has anyone else boarded the 720p train yet? i can't go back to dvd rips anymore. even the best dvd rips look washed out. not the brrips, though. dey fine. 8)

Its definitely alright (never a moment where I thought the quality blew). You may run into issues with the DIVX stream app since the newest version has been acting up with their streaming (you'll have to download an earlier release). I blasted through both Season 1 and 2 on Ninjavideo. The only thing that can be a pain are broken links, in which case I would just download the episode.

Cool. I checked it out/downloaded divx and quickly got the first episode working. I'll watch it tonight or tomorrow night. Lost is for tonight tho :bow

The S3 S1 ep I downloaded is in 720 I think, the quality is very good. With a megauload download, which is what I prefer. I'd rather not have to download multiple parts of one episode just to watch it, or have to pay for a premium RS account to get to download full episodes

Just finished the fourth episode of Breaking Bad S1. Definitely the best and most emotional episode yet. The show kinda starts fast, and this episode finally featured the type of emotional fireworks such a crazy situation would warrant. Kinda teared up when Hank told Walt that he'd take care of his family if anything happened. They're on a collision course of epic proportions.

Then you had some insight into Jesse. Really hit home for me. I know so many people with religious parents who pushed their kids to excel even as they slipped right through the cracks, totally oblivious to it. Another tear up moment: Jesse taking the fall for his brother, but destroying the blunt. Great moment.

I just finished S2 Ep. 16 last night, and am really enjoying the series. The monster-of-the-week stuff is OK, but the story arc stuff is leagues ahead of X-Files' meta-story, because it at least feels like they're not making it up as they go along. Ep. 16 is the one with the '80s style intro peeps posted a ways back, which is funny because the rest of the episode couldn't possibly be more serious.

I'm way behind on Fringe. The monster of the week stuff got a bit much when you watch too many of them back to back, and some of the shows quirks and tics kind of wore thin (how many different genius things did Walter work on back in the day that have now been used for evil). Plus, I know the show is about Fringe science, but some of the pseudo-science can be a bit laughable at times when he explains it to the team (and lowest common denominator at home).

Still a great show, and glad to hear they're going deeper into the mythology.

Well that felt off to me too. Especially since they'd only been on the island for a day. I guess it since it was Faraday's idea and once he was dead, he was like "fuck it, Imma do it", and my since he had just time jumped the idea didn't seem dumb, but it was definitely rushed. I also never figured out how he would justify probably killing everyone on the island just so that his plane wouldn't crash on it 27 years later, which I'd think would happen weither the plan worked or not.

PLEASE DON'T DIE JACK
It would be epic if they went that far, but they will wimp out because the studio is probably already considering how to do theatrical movies based on the character, likely with the same real-time gimmick.

The first season is awesome beginning to end breh. S2 is good, but not nearly as tight/focused. Also the show walks a fine line between "believable enough" and ridiculous, and at times S2 (so far) moves into the latter territory.

Finished watching the Thursday night lineup that NBC has which I always download.

Community had a great finale episode for what has been an outstanding opening season.
Parks and Recreations finished what may have been quietly the best comedy season this year. Nobody talks about this show but its become excellent. The first season was shit. A bad office wanna be. This season it really came into its own.
The Office has lost it big time. Watching that show is becoming a bit painful.
30 Rock is meh. I think I'm burned out on this show. They seem to have run out of things to really do or say. The special celebrity guest of the week gimmick is so played out.

So fucking pissed that it's now out of the Thursday line-up and going to be a mid-season replacement. What a vote of confidence not only on the show, but to Rob Lowe and HenryAdam Scott (sorry, too much Party Down). "Hey thanks guys for joining the show, see you in a fucking YEAR"

Didn't really like the Community finale, just didn't work for me and almost any one-off joke didn't work for me. ("cheeseburger Queen" :derp)
P&R has really come into it's own by letting the unfunny characters anchor it, rather then them be the focus. It's gotten so much better. NBC should at least give it a chance at a proper 2nd season.
Apart from a couple episodes (and this finale), I still find The Office hilarious, the parts I don't like is when it gets to broad and unbelivable.
Maybe because I've missed a crapload of 30 Rock, but I'm still loving it, and it's by far the "<insert random reference here>" show ever

The one where he threatens Hank? Yea that was eh. I thought the more emotional one was better. Still, I'm tired of Jesse. I still don't know exactly why he hated the guy who saved his fucking life. Sure, he blames White for all the bad things that have happened to him, but it still feels odd.

And I hated how once he decided to become partners again, he seemed to revert back to S1, playing in the lab like a distinguished mentally-challenged fellow. Sure, that's who Jesse is, but he's been quite reserved and business-like since getting out of rehab, making the lab scene seem out of place.

Walt getting rid of Gabe was cold. I realize Jesse is about all Walt has left, but jeez. Cut ties with the bastard

I'm watching The Lost Room, having picked it up after Patel recommended it some time ago. It's a fun, almost light follow-up to Fringe. Actually, I wish Fringe did some of the clever stuff that have cropped up during some moments of The Lost Room. Instead of inventing a new, bogus technology to deal with a new, bogus technology, Fringe could benefit from occasionally saying, "Oh, it works this way? Then we should be able to do this unexpected thing with it as well."

I watched the end of The Lost Room last night. I'm not seeing it mentioned in Wikipedia, but the unresolved plot threads make it clear that they were hoping to extend the miniseries into a regular series, or possibly into a second miniseries. There are so many unresolved plotlines, they must have been planning on working them out in later stories.
spoiler (click to show/hide)
  • The forensics doctor, Martin Ruber, escaping capture by both law enforcement and The Order of the Reunification, and claiming to be The Prophet.
  • The fate of the Legion, having lost many or all of its members (likely just a single active cell), through the betrayal of its leader; why and how did this happen?
  • Resolving the murder of Joe's partner, so Joe can get his daughter into a normal life; I suspect Joe spends the rest of his life on the run, like David Banner in the old Incredible Hulk TV series.
  • "There is more than one Room."
  • Returning Montague's car. ;-)
  • The return of The Key... typical "there may be a sequel" ending shot.
[close]
The show's mythology is rich, and though The Event which creates The Objects is effectively a McGuffin in the miniseries, it at least feels like there is a reason or multiple reasons for things being the way they are.

It would be neat if the series continued in comic or novel format, but it also seems like the kind of show that isn't hugely expensive to make. A lot of the magic happens off camera, to greater effect.

Anyway, it was pretty freakin' great. Check it out if you liked Carnivale.

I had to look that up since I don't remember, and it's actually on Wikipedia, under the article entitled, "Fictional Actuaries."

"In the third episode of The Shield (2002) called "The Spread", the police interrogate a rapist who claims to be an actuary."

Dawg Days was kinda ridiculous with the rapper gangsters, but had its moments.

Overall I'm liking the show. I was watching Homicide a few weeks ago, and while I liked it, I couldn't help comparing it to The Wire constantly in my head. It's a straight up police show, focusing entirely on the cops, not many of which are particularly interesting; one or two cops gets the spotlight each episode, but I didn't care much. The Shield avoids that by having some interesting characters wearing the badge.
Title: Re: The TV shows you've seen recently thread.
Post by: Dickie Dee on May 29, 2010, 08:43:35 AM
I think to enjoy Homicide you have to always keep in mind that it was a procedural cop show on a network - when compared to Law & Order and the like, you really see it's greatness. I only caught it sparingly when it was on (IIRC, it always aired Friday nights, not a prime slot for TV during my high-school  years), but it was the best thing going at the time. I've always been meaing to pick up David Simon's book that it's based on.

Huh. I watched the first six episodes and could NOT deal with it. I halfway feel like the entire reason the novel John Dies in the End was written was because Supernatural does it wrong, and takes itself way too seriously. The last season came out on DVD here, and it seems like they get into biblical demon/angel stuff, which is interesting. But the cheese level is more than I can navigate enjoyably.

Monster-of-the-Week format is standalone and fairly lame in season 1. In s2 there's a coherency that is improved from s1. But those two conceits are still there, just a bit better woven in.

The first couple episodes are certainly slow as new characters are introduced and old characters reminisce about the events of the previous season, but once it gets started it doesn't stop.

Good episode. Definitely wondering what Gus' discussion revolved around. Given he mentioned making the same mistake twice, I'm guessing he dropped the bomb on knowing Jesse is stealing.

Skylar's change is definitely a welcome one.

Only thing that was kinda "eh" was the new coincidence about the hot Mexican chick's brother. Although given how pissed Jesse was at the end of the ep, this could get interesting.

John Noble has crafted such an interesting, deep character for Walter Bishop. It's really amazing how much nuance he's brought to a role of such extremes. Several different incarnations, each readily identifiable as the same soul, having been brought to its current point through different trauma. He deserves huge props.

finally got around to watching Prison Break (first season, thanks Netflix Instant).

Man, this is pretty damn good, how steep does the quality drop off later?  If it keeps up this level of awesome, I'll be very impressed.
Well, me from the past, me from the present would tell you that there will be a gradual but undeniable drop in quality very soon.  Watching a guy MacGyver his way out of jail is a lot of fun, watching a show with a sub-X-files level evil and all-reaching conspiracy group is not so great.  Were it not for the entertaining performances from the supporting characters I would have gave up on this show a short time after the fascination in watching Dominic Purcell's helmut shaped skull wore off.

Any show that's wise enough to cast William Fichtner, Peter Stormare, Stacy Keach, and keeps that T-Bag guy around no matter how much they've gotta bend the plot can't be all bad, but I struggle to remember when the last time was a show was so eager to burn off its goodwill.

Oh well, still beats reality TV.

how they explained that Mackey and his crew recently turned crooked once he was put in charge of the Strike Team. Now knowing that the change from regular detective/cop to doing extra shady stuff feels too sudden. It feels like he's been that way for years. And I thought his wife was in on the crooked shit (maybe I interpreted something she said in Season 1 wrong), so I was surprised when she was all surprised that her husband was doing crooked shit for money.

I think they explained it by saying that his old captain (gilroy?) was always telling them they would need the money because of how little they got paid.

I remember there was some retired cop that offered Vic a" security consultant" job and when he went to his house he saw him living in crappy conditions and the old cop was telling him how it was because he didn't skim off enough money and that's why he now how to get into private security.

I just caught up to both seasons of Fringe.  I now have more questions than I had before season 2.

spoiler (click to show/hide)
WTF is responsible for The Pattern?  Did they just disappear after infiltrating the FBI and killing hundreds of people even though one of them warned their goal was to save the local universe from the alternate one?  Mitchell Loeb and David Robert Jones can't have been the only people involved with it.

If the coretexiphan kids can go between dimensions, how the fuck did alternate Olivia do that unless Walternate also gave her coretexiphan?

If Bell traveled between dimensions several times, why didn't he tell somebody about the alternate universe and how they're preparing for war?

They probably won't even answer any of that next season.

I am mostly sick of brilliant sociopaths vs cop shows.  Luther was particularily egregious in that regard.  In other news,  on final disc of season one of Fringe.  It's good stuff now.  Well, better stuff now.  I'm glad they're moving away from the formula of the first several episodes.

I've been watching The Shield as well - I'm a few episodes away from the end of the third season. I think I like the first and second more than the third but it's all great stuff. It's been a fun ride so far - I'm completely unspoiled, which is rare for me and also nice. Definitely not as good as the Wire, but then again no other television show is. Still great stuff, I'm really glad I still have 40+ episodes left of this show.

finally got around to watching Prison Break (first season, thanks Netflix Instant).

Man, this is pretty damn good, how steep does the quality drop off later?  If it keeps up this level of awesome, I'll be very impressed.
Well, me from the past, me from the present would tell you that there will be a gradual but undeniable drop in quality very soon.  Watching a guy MacGyver his way out of jail is a lot of fun, watching a show with a sub-X-files level evil and all-reaching conspiracy group is not so great.  Were it not for the entertaining performances from the supporting characters I would have gave up on this show a short time after the fascination in watching Dominic Purcell's helmut shaped skull wore off.

Any show that's wise enough to cast William Fichtner, Peter Stormare, Stacy Keach, and keeps that T-Bag guy around no matter how much they've gotta bend the plot can't be all bad, but I struggle to remember when the last time was a show was so eager to burn off its goodwill.

Oh well, still beats reality TV.
Thanks for saving me time. I'd considered renting it a number of times, but just couldn't generate enough interest, never having heard anything sufficiently good from friends. Now I just won't bother.

finished S1 of Fringe.

I think they're backburnering the group which Mitchell was in, because they're likely going to do something more complex with the ZFT. There is more than one of everything, after all. But introducing competing ZFTs without sufficient context would confuse too many viewers, so they're building the framework up now, by showing Walter's ZFT having been produced on a typewriter, and never published, while Walternate's ZFT is bestseller on the other side.

As for Olivia's opposite, Willco pointed out that our Dunham opened the crack, and it was really the particle accelerator and the power source which were necessary to wedge the existing crack open enough for them to return.

What I don't get is, young Olivia managed to manifest a lot of power when she was panicked, she now is aware of how to travel between the universes, and she is intensely panicked there at the end of the season 2 cliffhanger... so why can't she zap herself out, or fry Walternate or something? Maybe he has psychic defenses in place there...?

Ok so it was Aciveda who had to give the forced bj; I remembered something about it having seen a clip ages ago, and just assumed it involved Julien once I started watching the show. Seems kinda ridiculous that the police captain would be alone in that house.

Tavan :(

If he dies...fuck. Smooth ass character, I wish he had more to do. I'd like to see him undercover/ more but so much emphasis has been on latino gangs; of course all that shit was awesome though. I initially thought he'd die due to Shane not covering him properly during a shootout or something - certainly not after a brawl involving Shane's wife. That definitely pissed me off, with me on the edge of my seat lol

"Gang execution" has a very specific context - usually gunshots at close range without violent struggle. Plus, the news reports described it as "gruesome", so no. Dirty Burgers wouldn't really apply.

Those few things you mentioned pick at me (especially the plane crash), but I'm still enjoying the shit out of the show, so whatever. I disagree that the writers' direction towards the endgame has fizzled. Walt finally realizing what a piece of shit he is is enough development to keep me convinced that it's still going somewhere, even with those odd missteps here and there.

But then again I'm really drunk and also not very smart, so I'm sorry if none of this makes any sense

Why does every scene have to move the plot forward? I think the show's charm is in its subtle coloration of its characters, often in scenes which don't necessarily drive the plot forward.
Title: Re: The TV shows you've seen recently thread.
Post by: Dickie Dee on June 08, 2010, 08:41:33 AM
It's very much a character driven show, not necessarily a plot driven show. I don't think Walt's malaise towards life now that his cancer is in remission and he's no longer a focused, desperate man reflects the writers losing their own focus - it's IMO an interesting part of his character arc to stick him in this purgatory for a bit rather than have him continue on some predictable downward spiral that has him as a Gus-like kingpin by the end, or some such.

Post by: BobFromPikeCreek on June 08, 2010, 09:20:30 AM
Season 3 has felt different for me too because the characters aren't working toward something. In 1 and 2 they were trying to accomplish something, and as everything went wrong in their pursuit of their seemingly impossible objectives it made for some real nail-biting tension. Season 3 hasn't really had that until this recent episode.
Title: Re: The TV shows you've seen recently thread.
Post by: Barry Egan on June 08, 2010, 10:17:02 AM
I think season 3 has been interesting in part because it's become an extended meditation on what has occurred for the two main characters in seasons 1 and 2.  The first episode of the season showed a rift in how both characters chose to digest what they've done; Walt stubbornly denies his culpability in "breaking bad" whereas Jesse finds resolution in embracing a villainous persona that sometimes borders on the melodramatic.  Almost instantly both strategies fail to be convincing to the audience.  But the interest has been in the characters slow lurch towards figuring that out for themselves and, hopefully, figuring out how to address their own recent past in a more authentic way.  You could even argue that Hank is undergoing the same process, putting a halt on his own future in order to chase down a white whale that all the evidence suggests is long gone (okay, so he happened to be right on the money, but the psychology remains the same).

Every episode has stayed consistent with that arc, in my opinion.  Walt repeatedly attempts to return to his family while nonetheless continuing to cook under the table.  The sterile lab allows him to remain insulated from coming to terms with what it is he's actually doing.  And Jesse can't stand the lab because it prevents him from acting out; he's not evil unless he's actually on the street pushing or threatening people.  The actions both characters are taking have little to do with what's actually going on but about what's already gone on in the past.  And I disagree that the flashback scene with the now dead girlfriend was pointless.  The conversation they had was about repetition, about whether or not the experience of the same door can be different the second time around.  And in the same episode Jesse hooks up with another meth-head and corrupts her, just as he did with the previous girlfriend.  The question is whether the outcome can be different on Jesse's second run, hopefully through a change in Jesse's behavior.  

I could go on but yea that's generally why I feel that Season 3 has been pretty engrossing.  It certainly can't stand on its own the way the previous two seasons could, and from a plot perspective it's a mess, but I'm totally loving the introspective tone paired with the occasional balls-to-the-wall crazy.

Its weird, looking back over Season 3 it is clear that nothing really big has progressed (well, as extensively as the former seasons) but I'm with the subset that still absolutely loves this season. I liked seeing Walt trying to get a grip on his new lease on life, Jesse trying to deal with his addiction and being controlled and Skyler slowly accepting her role in Walt's dealings (of course theres also Hank). On the technical side I also feel that the cinematography is much stronger this year than it was last and I've been even more engrossed due to it.

I agree 100% on S3. Walt and Jesse are simply in stabler different situations now. Jesse's outbursts have attempted to break that stable atmosphere, and clearly he succeeded in the last episode. Walt's new found health has taken some of the tension out of his situation, but from his perspective it merely gives him more time to provide for his family, a welcome change from his perspective. This season has been full of scenes/events suggesting the calm before the storm is ending, and the finale looks to really set up a less stable, more explosive future for Walt and Jesse.

The build up to the plane crash suggested some type of gang-related retaliation hit on Walt, or even Gus cutting connections and having his family executed. Or better yet an explosion caused by Walt. The plane crash was "caused" by him, but the circumstances were beyond ridiculous.

Ricin takes days to kill somebody and it looks like "natural" causes.  If a ten year old dropped dead in a playground from eating slow-acting poison, people would assume he was playing with detergent bottles or something.  Not that it was a gang execution.

Most likely, the two guys who were in charge of Tomas just killed him because he would have no loyalty to them if he wasn't getting paid anymore.  He's a loose end.

The finale is probably going to be some big showdown with Gus.  It seems kinda unimportant but obviously Walt isn't going to be employed anymore which makes you wonder how he'll get by.

His wife's reaction to all this was odd. I suppose she's always been more interested in him advancing his career than him as a husband/lover, but it was still weird seeing her not be there for her man. He was forced to give a bj for christs sake :usacry

Episode 3x9 of The Sheidl ("Slipknot") is some awesome shit. Great scenarios, great dialog, great acting (the exchange between Aceveda and his wife was heartbreaking, and where the "money" went and the resultant convo was also fantastic).

I think it's all downhill from around there aside from anything having to do with Richie and Steve Buscemi's character. Eventually the more soapy drama will probably start to grate your nerves. Tony has to deal with (insert unstable mob figure), Carmella feels unappreciated and neglected, Meadow is being all college-y and banging some guy, AJ is a fuck-up, Junior is getting old, blah blah blah.

I actually still have to finish S6

7 episodes in to S4 of The Shield, spoilerz:

spoiler (click to show/hide)
-holy shit, Antoine putting a hit on Vic.

-Aceveda has become a complete pos. He was always an ambitious ass, but at one point he had some redeeming qualities. His fall from grace is almost comical with this rape fantasy shit. I rooted for him through S1 and a lot of S2, but now I'd love to see Vic bust him on the prostitution charge. Sort of reminds me of Carcetti in The Wire

-I like Glen Close's character. Definitely a hardass but one interested in doing her job, and letting her police do theirs. Plus recently she even seems to be convincing Wyms (grudgingly lol) that she's the real deal.
-edit: Vic just bitched her out.

Just watched the BB finale  :o. Though I hate cliffhangers  :'(.

spoiler (click to show/hide)
It seemed like Jesse moved his gun a bit to the right before shooting, so I assume it was just a warning shot, and the fact that it was meant to look like he shot him and left it as a cliffhanger means he probably didn't - but who knows, BB wouldn't be above turning that on it's head and open with S4 Jesse looking over Gale's body.

I liked Walt accepting the fact that he has it in him to kill if pushed and the situation requires it, and him wanting to protect Jesse who's resisted taking that moral leap.

The more I think back on this season, the less I think it's been plot weak - everything that was shown was shown because it impacted the characters, not to create a plot that'll be enjoyed by someone wiki'ing it to get the gist of the show.

I thought Walt was giving him up as well; it seemed to make sense given how quickly Walt broke down. And honestly I was hoping he would give him up.

Sounds like Gus wants to cut his losses. Gale no doubt knew what was going to happen, but that doesn't justify him getting killed first. Also it's kind of ridiculous that Gale and Walt are the only two chemists a multi-million dollar drug kingpin has in his pocket. With Gus possibly getting tied up in a war with another cartel, perhaps Walt will have the distraction needed to last longer.

Why doesn't he just tell Kavanaugh the truth about the heroin: that he used it to get closer to a lead on Angie's body. I'd imagine IAD wouldn't approve of that either, but it would probably be a better situation than having "intent to distribute heroin" dangling over your head.

That was the most wrenching tv scene I've ever seen. I had spoiled it for myself years ago but forgot the details: I thought Shane died to the grenade. As the scene progressed I realized I had it wrong, yet it was still powerful. Holy fuck. Lem was one of the most likable characters on the show. Refused to give up his friends - his family. Too bad GAF's search function is down, I'd love to see the S5 thread just to see reactions. But I don't want to google anything for fear of spoilers. I have no idea what S6 or S7 are about and I want to keep it like that.

When Kavanaugh attacked Vic at the scene of the crime, I wanted Vic to beat the shit out of him so bad.

Dunno how I feel about Kavanaugh's downfall. It was tense but rather anti-climatic with him outing himself early. He had completely gone off the deep end to get Vic, so him snapping back to his senses (and throwing away his career) seemed odd. I wouldn't have minded seeing his cat and mouse game go on longer, with Wagenbach getting closer to the truth.

Shane and Vic's confrontation wasn't as intense as I would have expected but damn, still good. Would Vic have taken Lem out if he was truly threatening to bring the strike team down? That's an interesting question, and honestly I think he would have. One of the most amazing accomplishments of the show has been how many times I forget or simply overlook the fact that Vic killed another police officer, and is truly a selfish pos when it comes to his own self interests.

For BlueTsunami: it reminds me of something that happens in Game of Thrones, to introduce a character. Yet in later books he becomes so likable you almost forget the disgusting thing he did within the first 100 pages of GoT.

I just saw the first episode of Hung.  I went in with no expectations but it was pretty good.

Fringe's pilot reminds me of Guillermo del Toro's The Strain so far  :o

Every episode is better, weirder, and more confusing than the last one.

Wow, definitely. The show is pretty awesome so far.

It does get better and better.  In the first two seasons I think there were only like two dud episodes and they were still entertaining anyway.

Should I feel bad for wanting to see Shane and his wive get mowed down? The scene with them in the pool really felt like a set up for something, and I was almost on the edge of my seat waiting to see something bad happen. Vic is a pos, and here I am hoping her kills a pregnant woman. smh

Vic getting Ronnie to stay on the chase for a couple more days felt like the beginning of the end for both of them.

The Shield :bow

spoiler (click to show/hide)
Finished. Wow. Easily the best series finale I've seen; granted I haven't watched many shows to completion. Definitely not what I expected: I thought the cartel bust would go sour and result in a shootout or something, or Vic would be greenlit.

-I can't imagine the show managed to make me feel bad for Shane, and conversely want to see Vic killed off. What an amazing turn of events, done perfectly. Shortly after Lem's murder I couldn't help but think Vic would have probably done the same thing if push came to shove. This was confirmed throughout S7 as he burned every bridge and turned on Ronnie

-I felt some eye moisture when Ronnie was arrested and was told Vic set him up; tough scene. Dude was essentially the strike team's clean up man for seven seasons. Ultimate team player, took injuries for the team and never complained. Looking back, Vic could have still done just about everything  he needed to do if Ronnie had escaped to Mexico. Watching him beaming with excitement over the cartel bust was painful

-Wyms embarrassing/exposing Vic in front of the entire barn was priceless. What a great character.

-Vic dying would have been a cop out. Instead he lived yet lost everything. I thought it was the perfect ending for him (with some great close up shots, the camera boxing him in).

-That last shot: seemed like he was following the sirens. I could see him violating his deal and being sent to prison lol


Overall...fucking amazing show. If The Wire is the best show I've seen, this is definitely the second best. And it certainly went out way better than The Wire did. I can't believe this show had 7 seasons without a dud. S6 felt like a transition (like Cajole said) but it was still damn good. I'd agree S5 and S7 are the best.

...and realized: the idea that Aceveda would have the black mayoral candidate assassinated never crossed my mind. He was introduced as a charismatic, reckless dude doing things that got people killed quickly throughout the series. I didn't find it surprising that he'd eventually get killed as he became more reckless and messianic.

Great point on Vic as well. He was a crooked cop throughout the series, yet it was easy to look past those violations as means to a just end. His team held the highest arrest rate in the city, and even his enemies in the barn and police department grudgingly gave him the toughest gang crimes to solve (and save their jobs). His sense of loyalty was admirable. When betrayed, his anger was explosive. Yet by the end he betrayed everything and everyone who cared for him.

Rome S1 first ep was great but I was very disappointed they didn't show Mark Antony and Brutus' eulogies at Caesar's funeral. Pretty big thing to leave out imo. By now you kinda expect them to breeze over battles due to budget restraints, but I expected the speeches to be there.

I think they were in a bit of a jam there, history didn't really record what was actually said and it'd be hard to go against Shakespeare's version.

You'll especially notice next season that alot of major events are built up to then occur offscreen and alluded to (this is mostly because S2 is really S2,S3,S4 condensed into one season)

I've been watching episodes here and there and the humor is very very good. I'm now watching an episode on WB where they're stuck in some TV universe (due to some Demon) and its one of the funniest things I've ever watched on TV.

Also -

Not a TV show, but I have been listening to the Gunsmoke radio series while I'm at work.  It predated the TV series, and is vastly different in tone.  Matt Dillon is voiced by William Conrad, who has this great deep and rumbling voice, and is portrayed as a fairly brutal character (think Kurt Russell's Wyatt Earp from Tombstone).  He fucks up at his job sometimes, and will readily kill people who provoke him.  I was tripping out in one episode where he told this loudmouthed prisoner he was going to club him to death if he didn't shut up :lol  It's more heavily hinted at that Miss Kitty is a whore.  Doc is a semi-drunk who makes jokes about the corpses he does autopsies on.  I was actually surprised by how adult it is for a 1950s radio show, it's almost sort of a Western Noir.

kinda surprised you were surprised - i thought it created entire brouhaha that everyone new the ending.

i liked it. despite it's dark humor, the show was always really a tragedy about the character of Tony and those closest to him, which creator David Simon got but I don't think the viewers always got. They just wanted to live vicariously through Tony and see people get whacked. Giving these people the middle finger with the finale still leaves a big grin on my face.

Wouldn't mind hearing more opinions on it, as I know they cancelled it prematurely. Is it worth watching it for what it is, or does it cut so abruptly that it's not worth getting invested in it and never having any resolution?

Gonna start watching Carnivale very soon. Fucking NinjaVideo's death has hurt my watching of tv related stuff.
same here  :lol

Initially I looked up a bunch of similar sites but I didn't really watch much of anything. I've even slowed down on watching Rome (which I download)

Icefilms has a bunch of shit but so many of the links don't work. StageVu has a lot of working links, but I'm far too lazy to search for episodes, which aren't in order smh

Carnivale, you definitely want to watch Season 1 before 2. It's some complex crap happening, as well as a lot of actual character change. A very good series, start to finish. Too bad they had to rush the end.

That Dexter trailer is awesome, but I shouldn't have watched it, since I've only seen through season 2. S3 finally released on video here a couple months ago.

Over the past couple of days I've moved through the 9th season of Smallville and the 2nd season of Dexter.  Smallville was eh.  I look forward to the last season, just to see how it ends, but I doubt I'll be tuning in to watch it every week.

2nd season of Dexter was awesome!  I can't wait to start the third.

The only thing that bothers me is that when Heroes came out, it was a pretty solid show.  But they did all the product placement crap for Nissan and it got old, quick.  I think that was what made me notice how crappy the rest of the show was getting.

I don't want Burn Notice to share that fate.  Let Bruce Campbell go unemployed no longer!

ST:TNG and DS9 predate the mini-soap-opera trend which was popularized by "24" -- the mandate with Trek is to finish whatever they've started in the 60 minutes they've been given. Well, 44 minutes. I recall hearing that they actually had to fight to make any references to other episodes, to refer to a larger continuity, for fear that it would alienate audiences who watch the show in syndication, where there is no guarantee that the episodes would be shown in a particular order.

As they near the end of the series (7 seasons for Next Gen), there are more and more casual references to earlier happenings in the series, so it's kind of "continuity lite."

ZOMG if true

Quote
The Office‘s short list of possible replacements for Steve Carell just got a little longer.
Sources confirm to me exclusively that producers of the NBC hitcom have quietly reached out to rising comic-actors Danny McBride (the breakout star of HBO’s hilarious Eastbound & Down) and Rhys Darby (late of HBO’s Flight of the Conchords) to gauge their interest in joining the cast later this season.

Office showrunner Paul Lieberstein confirms that they’re “having discussions” about introducing a new salesman into Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch, but he wouldn’t say whether this person was being groomed to necessarily replace Carell’s Michael Scott. “We haven’t settled exactly who will take over,” says Lieberstein, adding that promoting a current staffer to the top job remains a viable option as well. (Coexecutive producer Mindy Kaling recently endorsed Rainn Wilson’s Dwight for the gig.)

Recruiting McBride could prove difficult considering that HBO just renewed Eastbound & Down for a second season. “Danny is very happy on Eastbound & Down,” confirms his spokesperson.

Darby, on the other hand, is a free agent now that HBO has grounded Conchords. Reps for the New Zealand-born funnyman were unavailable for comment.

Thoughts? Can you see McBride or Darby calling the shots on The Office? Sound off below!

I can't tell you why, but yesterday I was stuck to my couch watching American Chopper.  I just couldn't get up.  All they kept doing during the commercials was hyping up the new season (Senior vs Junior) and I actually got a little interested in seeing it.  They said it was coming on at 9pm EST.

At 8:45, I put the kiddo to bed, got some popcorn, lit a cigarette, and tuned into discovery.  9pm rolls by and it's some fishing bullshit!  Oh wait, viewers, we forgot to say it's on TLC now.

That's kind of a relief. I thought about buying a copy of the DVD during my trip, realized I hadn't even HEARD of it, and decided to hold off.

If I could find that mid-'80s parody-dubbed sentai heroes, "DYNA MAN," then I'd be really happy. I assume the rights reverted before DVD ever came out, because I've rarely met people who saw it.

I have two episodes of Rome left. S2 is damn good, although some things kind of turn me off. I really like Octavion's mom (if only the actor was younger she's be a perfect Cersei in Game of Thrones), but her arc kind of gets ridiculous in S2 - especially the last couple...encounters with Sylvia

Firefly

Just watched through the series.  Too bad it was cancelled before they could settle on whether guns made bangs or laser sounds in the future.

Loved loved loved Firefly.  One of the few series that I actually paid to own.  You should watch Serenity.  It attempts to tie things up a little bit.

Dexter can start to feel shitty once you really that everything that isn't Michael C. Hall as Dexter is pretty god-awful (with a few exceptions). Then you realize he's onscreen like 80%+ of the time and kind of accept it and like it again.

Oh man the in office relationship between Laguerta and Batista is horrible, I cringed during every scene

She actually gets more and more nude as the Seasons progress till you finally see some titties in Season 5. Also, dat' skin tone. Seriously, she's the first woman I've seen in general where I actually marveled at how beautiful their skin is. Its so milky pale.

Cajole, noooooo, I feel differently. I love Doug (Nealon, who is the best character, no doubt), Andy (the brother in law), Celia, Celia's daughter and Nancy (Mary Louise Parker). The two sons are only good for Andy to riff off of and expound his knowledge to.

Also Zooey Deschanel's cameo was amazing

But as stated, Kevin Nealon is awesome. Memorable Doug vocabulary...

I was wondering why on earth you hadn't watched Mad Men yet, Solo. Always seemed like the kind of show you'd enjoy. Glad you're liking it, it only gets better, too.
I wouldn't worry too much about the fact you've been spoiled on a couple things. From my perspective it's more about observing how things unfold over a long time than individual moments or plot points.

I think it's looking like 6 seasons.

I think that's what they said earlier, but just prior to Season Four premiering, Weiner had this to say:
Quote
spoiler (click to show/hide)
What happened is, when we talked, it's so hypothetical. But I was going to skip 1963, and I decided not to do that. I was going to have it come back every two years, but then I thought, 'Why have a formula? Why not let the story dictate when we’re going to open up the curtains every year?'
[close]
(first part of the quote is with regards to the amount of time that passes between seasons, so slightly spoilery)

spoiler (click to show/hide)
In terms of how long it goes, who knows? I don't want the fans to feel insecure. I don't know. I have plenty of story to tell. One of the great things about committing to the changes at the end of last season is that there’s so much life to the show. There’s so much new story in this whole beginning.
[close]
(second part of the quote you shouldn't read if you haven't seen Season Three yet)

It was just one of those shows that for some reason I missed the initial boat on, and never got around to. Now Ive blown through one season and 11 episodes of S2 in like 3 days  :lol

As to the bolded, thats what REALLY sets the show apart for me. It reminds me of Arrested Development, but in drama form, where things are set into motion episodes or seasons ahead, and when you finally see things coming together, its brilliant. The other thing that Im really loving is how the smallest things are important. A gesture here, a look there - its all in the details with these characters.

i watched Titan Maximum last night which is a parody of giant robot shows done by the robot chicken guys.

i laughed a few times but it wasn't anything really great.
That's kind of a relief. I thought about buying a copy of the DVD during my trip, realized I hadn't even HEARD of it, and decided to hold off.

If I could find that mid-'80s parody-dubbed sentai heroes, "DYNA MAN," then I'd be really happy. I assume the rights reverted before DVD ever came out, because I've rarely met people who saw it.

Draper is so pathetic right now in almost every way (kids, job, drinking, you name it, hes fucking it up - and shit, he was even nailing hotter chicks with more panache when he was still married than he is now :lol ), and there hasn't been (yet) an episode like the final run of S3 that rips my guts out. But, the season is only half over. As of this second though, S3 is still king.

Hard to measure in half-seasons, lulz, but I think I'd go with S1 in that regard. I think I've finally put my finger why I loved S3 so much and why the rest of the series has a slightly uphill battle for me - Draper's past. Through the first 2 + seasons, he was a mystery to all, but with the events that transpired last season, and with his cards being put on the table (for his family, anyways), and the aftermath, a big part of the draw of Draper has now been fully etched out. Without that element of mystery, you're forced to finally take him for what he is, and lets face it, ol' Donny boy is something of a terrible human being.

Testament to Hamm though for making what should be a completely unsympathetic character so hard to not root for.

Sherlock

Modern take on the character, but still amazingly faithful. The "Sherlock in the present" bit was surprisingly not cloying. I watched it mostly because of Martin Freeman as Watson and he was great as expected. The editing and onscreen cues during Sherlock's rapid deductions were handled beautifully. The season is actually 3 1.5hr episodes/movies so which was a nice change of pace. It's apparently done by the Doctor Who folk, which I've avoided but now am a bit interested in checking out after this.

This time Rita has commissioned Finster, a monster, to use and play mind control music. Finster makes a suggestion for the Gnarly Gnome, a kind of Pied Piper that hypnotizes by playing some hideous accordion music. Before Rita can object, Finster activates the Monster-matic and Gnarly Gnome is created. Back at the youth center, Kimberly is teaching a dance class. Afterwards some of the girls are hypnotized by the Gnarly Gnome except one girl, Melissa, who is totally deaf. Melissa follows the zombie-like girls into Rita's cave. Rita is irritated by the Gnome's mistake in capturing the girls when he was supposed to capture the Power Rangers. Melissa runs back to the Youth Center extremely terrified. She warns Jason about what she has just seen and he summons the Power Rangers to investigate. The Rangers follow Melissa back to the cave. Kimberly hides Melissa in a secure place so the Power Rangers can safely morph. After an intense fight, they defeat the Gnarly Gnome by engaging the Power Blaster and eliminating him.

Man Entourage has been so boring this season, the last episode didn't even have any comedy just boring distinguished mentally-challenged drama :yuck and Sasha Gray is such a terrible actress :lol, luckily John Cleese and Malcolm McDowell were in the episode :bow2

Sasha Grey has to be the most pretentious porn star ever. I heard an interview of hers on a morning show here about her role in Entourage, and she sounded so fucking smug like she was some NY theater chick. Not surprised she can't act for shit.

I started watching Weeds over the weekend. A widowed suburban mom selling weed to get by is an odd idea for a show, but it's pretty funny. I'm on season 2 now.

I'd smash the mom btw.

It starts off pretty good but unfortunately it loses its way big time. I watch it now mainly out of habit rather than it being good although every episode has a few humorous moments. And yes Mary-louise Parker is hot.

Its had its up moments and its down moments. For instance I thought Season 4 was a much better season than the prior season. But overall its certainly trended downwards from where it started. Its kind of a text book case of what happens when you don't plan a show that has a relatively complex theme. They make it up as they go along so it ends up feeling disjointed and weak.

I'm going through the first couple seasons of Buffy, and I don't think this show holds up that well.  It's still entertaining, and I dig the emotional bits of each of the episodes, but it has the same sort of feel that Chuck has now–still entertaining but ultimately played out to death.

He has sweet fuck-all to do with most of these projects, lets get real here. Every show he has on the air he is an exec producer on and does nothing but help pitch the show and use his name to get it greenlit. I'd pretty much guarantee he steps back and doesn't direct ST2.

The only thing in that list that he really worked on majorly is Super 8.

Been watching a bunch of Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe

that guy is awesome
Yeah, someone recommended it so I picked up the first season suuupah cheap on Amazon. Almost every episode has been better than any other reality show out there. It's neat to see people working hard, doing crap we don't want to, being praised for it. Rowe is a cool guy. Looks like he might have a bit of an ego, but if I was smart, good looking, and built like a quarterback, I would probably have some ego issues as well.

Probably an unpopular opinion to have but I've slowly but surely become bored with Sunny and its not a recent development.

The show still has the occasional tremendous episode but I've felt for a long time like I've seen a magician who has already done his best tricks. It seems to be a lot of rehash at this point.
Title: Re: The TV shows you've seen recently thread.
Post by: Phoenix Dark on September 24, 2010, 11:19:45 PM
Agreed. So many episodes fall on their face. Most have that one epic "aha, that's the Sunny I remember" moment but outside of that eh.

I really can't say I'm interested in the whole marriage/divorce angle this season. The new characters are just boring. And then they brought a bunch of old bit characters back too, out of nowhere. I laughed seeing Charlie's uncle again but eh.

Watched the first episode of Sherlock. Since Doctor Who is just sherlock in time and space, I was expecting this to be pretty good and it seems so. Watson's character and actor is pretty good. They really let loose Holmes the prick. I wonder how Holmes' chemical addictions play out, since they hint at it in the first episode.

The Watson/Holmes dynamic is similar to the recent film. I guess this is just the modern view. No bumbling Watson, no gay for Holmes Watson, not totally Watson is the audience though that is in there.

I really liked Sherlock. 2nd ep takes a slight dip (still great) and the 3rd is probably the best of the bunch. I look forward to more.

Also, London has never looked so good.

Re: The Event.

I speak as someone who actually quite enjoyed last season's panned FlashForward.

But even for me, the Event was......lame and tired.  The title is pretentious enough, and it just didn't deliver.  I left the TV on for the whole hour, but I was tuned out and surfing the interwebs by the 15 minute mark.  The final moment made me go "huh, that's different" but that's about it.  Strained my disbelief that the fucking F-16s shadowed the airliner for the whole gawdamned flight and were content to let the plane nosedive within half a kilometre of the President.

Pilot:  "oh, what?  We're actually supposed to shoot down the plane?"

The worst part is that I've had to put up with radio ads for the show over the past week that consist simply of a douchy lady ranting about how incredible and amazing the pilot was.  And I'm thinking "darling, if you watched the same pilot I did, you must have been high as a kite while doing so."

I agree. I posted similar on GAF, just not in the Sunny thread.

Didn't even watch this week's episode and I'm not sure I care. FX has two superior comedies in Louie and Archer.

The problem isn't any one specific character on Sunny. It's all of them too me. They pushed all the characters out to their extremes so much that they have no where to go with them anymore. I feel like the show is constantly trying to still shock me at this stage but I'm immune to it all now. No matter which character it is.

Firefly

I bought the blu-ray when it was released and I'm pretty sure it was because of someone on this forum.  Anyway, two or three weeks ago I watched the 2009 Star Trek movie again and thought about getting into Star Trek.  Realizing how much I'd need to watch, I decided not to (my excuse for not getting into One Piece too) but I still wanted a sci-fi show to watch, so I started Firefly.  I finished it last night and watched the movie this morning.  I liked it a lot.  The movie was pretty weak compared to the show.

Yeah, the movie was weak three ways from Sunday, compared to the series. It doesn't make the mistake of the Star Trek movies to focus on just a couple characters. Serenity at least maintains integrity as an ensemble cast piece, but overall it doesn't look much different from any of the TV series' episodes. It is paced kind of strangely, too, as though they're rushing to get through as much exposition and character closure as possible -- which I guess they are, though it isn't clear why Joss didn't opt to take the series into comics or novels to continue the story. Yeah, yeah, it's a FOX-owned property so he's not able to control that, or doesn't want to expend effort into it... meh. It's a choice he made, and a lot of SF fans were hung out to dry on their emotional investment, and Joss did his usual unoriginal schtick to make sure there was irreversible closure on the existing group chemistry.

The problem with Serenity is that all of the plotlines they started on the show seemed to have a different resolution in the film than what they were supposed to have on the show. I know that now from watching the DVDs, but that was apparent to me whenever I watched the series.

Firefly is probably the biggest fuckup in the history of the world. It might have become one of the best science-fiction shows of all time if it were to continue. Now that I have seen the majority of Whedon's earlier TV shows (Buffy/Angel) it's hard not to look back at Firefly and see the show as his best work initially in setting up a show. Buffy and Angel took awhile before they worked out the kinks, but almost immediately Firefly was a great television show, even with the mixed signals sent due to Fox's influence.

I'm trying not to be a butthurt fan, but it's hard for me to watch the Firefly DVDs without thinking about what could have been at this point.

Some of my problems with the movies you guys already summed up.  My biggest problem was that there wasn't a lot of space for character interaction, which was the best part of the show, much more than the stories that were told.  Some of the characters felt different, like Simon, and that pissed me off because he was my favorite character.  Then there were things like taking River on that bank heist mission that didn't make sense.  There wasn't enough time to do the material justice.

I read up a bit more and apparently if there was a second season, it would have ended with the discovery of Miranda.  That would have been great.  For some reason I thought the show was from 2004, but it's from 2002, and the movie from 2005.   Don't think there are any chances of another TV series or movie at this point. Though, there is a comic about the shepard coming soon.

This is actually the first I've heard of Joss Whedon.  Never saw Buffy or Angel.  I did see the Dr. Horrible Blog thing, but I didn't know who he was even then.

the event

watched the second episode when it aired, i was rolling my eyes at the lost and 24 comparisons before the show started but it does seem like it could be a good show, the prospect of an alien race very similar to ours is interesting, although ridiculous, which makes it hard to suspend your sense of disbelief sometimes

I'm just reaching my breaking point with regards to the lack of any subtlety in the writing. I'm sick of every goddamn supporting character. What the fuck was that sex scene? Really? Dexter may be totally "emotionless" but I'd think he's not distinguished mentally-challenged enough to keep the Mickey Mouse hat on while he tells his step-kids their mother was killed. The shit with Harry -- "Where are you now Harry?!?!?" -- and then of course he shows up after Dexter kills an innocent guy (even though when he killed an innocent guy last year that's when he receded for a while). It really isn't all that different than it's been up to this point, but I can't take the godawful writing anymore.

The first season was great. One of the great seasons of TV imo. (Talking about Veronica Mars)

The other two seasons aren't remotely as good by comparison but I still liked them.


Prison Break also has a good entertaining first season (as long as you accept it for the kind of show it is). But the show really tanks after that imo. Sort of like heroes.

I thought it got so terrible in the 2nd season that I couldn't stomach watching the 3rd. One day I may get around to it.

Is Journeyman on instant Netflix? I thought that was an awesome show that got cancelled very very early in its run. Still worth watching imo.

Day Break is also pretty cool to watch since it also only ran for a limited number of episodes. I didn't like how they wrapped it up but I still enjoy the overall show and premise.

I really like Firefly, and agree that it is Whedon's best work to-date. I'm not including the Serenity movie in that. Whedon went all-out to resolve the end of season 1's character status, wrap the largest loose ends into an endpoint, prevent the licenseholder from carrying on with the character set, and it fails to make a coherent narrative.

It is weird that Shepherd Book will get his own, er, book. The other comics that were made for the series are OK, but if you want to get a taste of what could have been done in prose with the characters, check out Steven Brust's novel he wrote without commision. I really enjoyed it, and it shows where the characters could have been taken, what kind of episodic stories might have been told if Whedon hadn't made such a butthurt movie despite the fans.

How was Veronica Mars S3? I never watched S2 all the way through but caught a few episodes of S3 and got the impression it might be an improvement.

S1 was golden though, the season-long case was so natural and it's resolution so satisfying. Having some random incident happen to set up S2 felt so cheap and artificial, I just didn't want to bother.

it was probably good that you stopped before the season 2 finale fwiw.  They end up tampering with the established season 1 storyline in a really ham-fisted way. and yea I haven't watched three either, but mainly because friends had warned me it was the worst season.

How was Veronica Mars S3? I never watched S2 all the way through but caught a few episodes of S3 and got the impression it might be an improvement.

S1 was golden though, the season-long case was so natural and it's resolution so satisfying. Having some random incident happen to set up S2 felt so cheap and artificial, I just didn't want to bother.

Season 2 is interesting and enjoyable as it is occurring but it feels like rehash of the first season and the way it ends is a bit annoying.

I like Season 3 more than I like Season 2 but its not like Season 3 is a return to the glory days of the first season. The other 2 seasons have very good moments in them but they don't have the great cohesive thread and the completely solid cast the first season had. Although without spoiling anything I will say I think Season 3 ends on a very strong note.

I'm afraid to watch the next 2 seasons because everyone says they don't live up to the first.

They aren't even remotely close. Prepare yourself for that fact, and perhaps your lowered expectations will work in your favor. S1 of Veronica Mars is one of my favorite seasons of televisions bar none, but the show really becomes a pale imitation of itself in S2 and S3. The arcs aren't linked so personally with Veronica anymore, relationship garbage takes over the show (it becomes the Logan and Veronica show), and there are some truly awful moments ahead (the S2 finale has some absolutely awful moustache twirling villainy in it), and the writing drops off. Even the characterization of Veronica changes for the worse over the course of the show. Worst of all for me is the retcon. You'll know it when you get that far. In general, S2 is built around a retcon to one of the most important truths of S1.

I agree with Cohen that Dexter should have been a one season show, and the same is true of Veronica Mars.

Also, Im so sad to see what has become of Kristen Bell's career. She was incredible in VM (and in Deadwood!), and she has since gone onto.... Heroes and a steady stream of rom-coms  :-\

Im sure shes making mad bank doing them, but they are all so far below her talent level. She needs to be the lead in something on HBO.

Finally, I'm almost finished with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Without too many spoilers, here's some quick reviews

S1 -Meh. Definitely one of those shows that didn't come together until the next season. Hated the show until I saw Season 2
S2 and S3 - Probably the best two seasons of Buffy overall. I love the campiness and the fact the show never takes itself too seriously. Great characterization and onscreen chemistry between the characters.
S4 - Meh. Again, the season has it's ups and downs. One of the top five episodes in Buffy history comes in Season Four (Hush) but that doesn't explain the outlandish sci-fi crap they fling at the audience. It still would have worked if not for the fact that it feels like the writers wrap up shit WAY too quickly when there is potential for more in almost every episode.
S5 - Better than S4, but by this point the show really lost the campiness/ability to not take itself seriously. Again, this isn't necessarily a bad thing (The Body) but the show just got way too DARK DARK DARK DARK DARK. Much better wrap-up of plotlines and story this season
S6 - Not horrible, but not great either It really didn't feel like too much happened. The villains were lame.
spoiler (click to show/hide)
Dark Willow was pretty awesome though, and something the show's been touching on for several seasons prior. Good on the writers for pulling the trigger on some really shocking behavior
[close]
S7 - Not a fan so far. Buffy's a real bitch in this season. Not a great way to end a pretty decent show. No wonder the ratings were slacking at this point. Nathan Fillion, however, KICKS ASS. Probably my favorite antagonist on the show so far.

I watched S1-S6 at the end of last year and mostly agree with your assessment, though I would say S3 = S5 > S2. I was a big fan of S5 for a variety fo reasons - mostly seeing how the writers managed to turn things around from the mucky SF boredom of season 4.

S6 was such a letdown that I never got around to watching S7 ... I hear it's just a total tonal clusterfuck that I'm afraid, so very afraid

EB&D premiere sets up a good season I think, but I wasn't too crazy about it as an episode. A lot of the jokes could be basically reduced to "look at this funny looking foreign guy!" which I've always found incredibly lazy.

I think the show is always pretty crude but that's what I like about it. Also when the protagonist is just as bad and worse than the other characters I don't think its just foreign bashing.

I like it as long as a person accepts it for what it is. I think places like GAF are completely annoying and overboard towards it but I do like it mainly because I like the characters. In that sense it isn't very much different from any sitcom. If you like the characters you probably will like the show. If you don't you won't.

some bad lines, but that comes with something taking off on detective shows

Just of note, it's not a procedural show or a court case show, but more along the lines of the hardboiled tradition but with two low class dudes in a beat up truck instead of a gumshoe in a getaway car.

I'm a couple of seasons behind on Dexter but I'm eager to catch up.

I think I'm going to like it more than most of you guys (Of course I'm speaking out of my ass here a bit having not seen the last two seasons so I could be completely wrong) Even in the early days Dexter was a bit hit or miss so I don't think I quite put it on the level that some of you did. For me its just an entertaining show with a neat gimmick so I have a feeling it was never quite on the same high pedestal for me as it was for some others.

Dexter reminds me of House: it is incredibly formulaic under the guise of frenetic story telling.  It is predictably unpredictable.  With the event in spoiler happening, the rest of the side cast ranges from garbage to mediocrity, not enough to save the show anyway.

Nailed it.  Been down with the flu so I just shot through the first 2 seasons in 2 days.  After what happened in the spoiler, I don't know how much I'm going to like the rest of the series since he was easily the best character in the show.  I'm still intrigued enough to want more of Michael C. Hall being a slick creeper, though.  However...

Yeah, I like the look. They found a way to translate a noir look without the black and white by going with a dusty, sleepy beach town. The camera angles and bits of sun glare, along with the empty roads work well. I guess I would call the look Mellow Yellow.

I've heard a lot of this, but I haven't had a particular dislike for the post-Sorkin West Wing episodes so far.

And just skip Lost.

I know that it is apparantly shit, that the writers made it up as they went along etc, but I kind of have the first five seasons on DVD just sitting there...from what I gather it's extremely inconsistent with a pretty poor ending. Is it worse in that respect than, say Battlestar Galactica? I thought watching that show was worth it, even though there were parts of it I downright hated.

Quote
I feel the same way, too, especially considering most of my TV time (really, free time) is currently dedicated to playoff baseball.

October is so fucking good. Playoff baseball and the start of hockey means I'll be watching pretty much nothing but sports the entire long weekend.

Season 2 of Veronica Mars wasn't the monumental drop in quality that you all made it seem like it would be. It was still good, just not as focused as the first season. The villains were much weaker though. I'm on episode 6 of the third season now.

Yeah, I like the look. They found a way to translate a noir look without the black and white by going with a dusty, sleepy beach town. The camera angles and bits of sun glare, along with the empty roads work well. I guess I would call the look Mellow Yellow.

I wouldn't exactly call San Diego dusty or sleepy, but I do like what you're saying.

But it's a San Diego suburb isn't it? I don't recall seeing any of the central parts of San Diego in the show.

I just know it reminds me of the smaller central coast towns of California.

Kenny Powers :bow2 Also I've nearly finished watching the entirety of Star Trek Next Generation  :-[ Never watched any Star Trek before and me and my gf got into sci fi after watching Battlestar Gallactica so for the past 8 months or so we've been slowly getting through TNG. I love it. Any other borito trekkies?

Been watching episodes of Seinfeld online and I've been drawn in enough to nab the whole series and I'm about to marathon it. I didn't used to like Seinfeld, mainly because of the laugh track, but after seeing Curb Your Enthusiasm and learning that George = Larry David, I've gotten over my laugh-track annoyance and am totally enamored with the series. The Pitch was fucking HILARIOUS.

The last few episodes of Veronica Mars S3 felt like a set up for another season. I guess they didn't know they were gonna get canceled? The main cases were cool though.

On to the next show.

The show was always on the bubble so they definitely didn't know if it was coming back or not that final season. Even if it would have come back it would have been a reboot so none of that stuff would have mattered.

I did like how season 3 ended though. I thought it was a fitting ending for the show.

I'm a big fan of TNG, a moderate fan of the original series, and know that I have to watch all of DS9 at some point. I hear later Enterprise episodes are good, but I'll pass anyway, and also will likely never watch Voyager. But TNG is the freakin' bawmb.

I still watch it. And there are always the occasional funny moments. But the office is a good comparison. Both shows sort of feel like they are phoning it in at this point.

It could be just that I'm burned out on 30 rock period but I didn't like it. And despite their background from SNL I hate when shows do a "live" gimmick. Strikes me as some Will & Grace kinda shit.

Everything is so crazy. A friend of mine used to jokingly say the writers wrote Tracy Morgan's character as if they had never met a black person. But now everything he says/does is so smh worthy like a parody I dunno lol.

The Office has great characters too, but it hasn't evolved as much as the writers would have us believe. Just because someone gets married doesn't justify running the same pranks over and over again.

I started watching BSG again. I left off admist season 3 because the drama was too forced, everyone was fucking everyone and they took away Gaius Baltar. I went back, sludged through a few episodes and bow Baltar is back! I am not sure he's the only reason to watch the show, but the cult of Baltar's hot dick is awesome.

they're not just recycling pranks, they're recycling story lines.  We're now on the the what?  Third love triangle?  I don't care anymore people.  And I especially don't care when it involves fairly new characters with little to no real development.  Fuck off.

Louie went from "pretty cool" to "amazing" with the 9th episode (Bully). A lot of times in earlier episodes, the line between comedy and serious shit was rather forced. I thought this episode was perfect though, and so real it felt almost painful to watch at times because I've witnessed similar situations before.
