The original is so much better!

 

I've seen it twice and I'm sure a third time will follow. My son didn't like it though, not the UK or the US edition. Then again, he likes Friends, so that explains it all. ;)

The Plot Against America

 

Zzzzzz!

 

Hmm, maybe I should check it out now! You fall asleep with all my favorite things.

Binged War of the Worlds. Its a European construct. Still have 2 episodes to go but it is dismal and bleak. I wish I could tell the writer how stupid he is. Really Aliens in doggie automatons filled with alien flesh similar to bacon

I'm taking advantage of the free month CBS All Access is giving to watch Picard.  I watched the first episode tonight, gotta listen to some podcasts about it before I move on.

Rick and Morty.  It's... weird.  I'm not sure why it's so polarizing...  It's not bad; it's not ground-breaking or great.  It's just an above-average Adult Swim-style show that has mostly stupid humor but fairly clever storytelling.  I have to say I'm looking forward to the future of the show, though.  Being guaranteed 70 additional episodes could give them a lot of flexibility that other (probably more deserving) shows never got.  Now if only Brockmire got that long a rope.

So I've been watching The Walking Dead lately and finished Season 1 and just started Season 2. Now, big question, does a real story/plot ever emerge on this show or is it just survival stuff? Because if it's the latter, I'm going to lose my patience really quick.

Yes, it is pretty universally agreed that the show gets worse and worse as the years go on.  Also it's been renewed through season 12 so you have a long road ahead if you want to slog through it all

Everyone has different tastes in what they want out of a television show

Yeesh. My friend who pressured me into watching it insists it's mind-bogglingly unparalleled prestige TV. Maybe I need new friends?

 

You mean he said it's up there with The Wire, The Sopranos, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Deadwood, etc? If so, tell him you can't be friends anymore.

She.

 

Neh fuck it, I flicked it off and now I'm watching The Golden Girls instead.

Oh sure, but jeez, talk about overselling something.

 

People really put it up there in its early seasons. Was a very trendy thing to do at the time, but even time, I never understood the hype.

 

I'm surprised the show is still going on. I thought they wrapped it up some time ago.

Not only is it still going, but there are like 3 spin-off shows too.

I've read on the internet that this new season is good, better than what came before... But the show lost almost all of its initial characters, and years and years of terrible seasons made a lot of its audience to stop watching, me included. I gave up years ago, when I realized how terrible it was.

The Walking Dead is brilliant for what it is. It's about the individual storylines that keep hooking you. 

But it can get tiresome. I haven't watched beyond season 6.

I watched season 1 with a room full of friends back in the day.  It was fine, a bit repetitious.  It's also only 6 episodes, no it's not like anything too major gets built up and pays off.  I kept meaning to resume the show someday but never did, then the general sentiment towards it online just keep going down and down as the years went on, so I never bothered.

Yea...it’s all kind of soapy isn’t it? I just remember the show hitting the same beats over and over at some point.

Couldn't tell you, never watched beyond season 1.  I wouldn't describe season 1 as soapy, the repetition came from them relocating, getting attacked by zombies, relocating again, etc.

Carnivale, Season 2 (final season).

 

I think the first season is better, more mysterious, more about the life and people of the carnival. In that regard, season 2 is less rich and more interested in working towards the big showdown between Brother Justin and Ben Hawkins. It needs to be said, though, that brother Justin is a fascinating villain, wonderfully portrayed by Clancy Brown. The series deserved a third season but wasn't granted one.

Daniel Knauf has a six season plan, with each 2 seasons telling one act of a 3-act story.  So we got the first act, but not the second or third.  Such a shame.  I keep hoping HBO will revive it somehow...

I loved The Walking Dead back in the day, looked forward to it each week, and was always careful to avoid spoilers. Season 1 was probably the best, but Seasons 2 and 3 were also enjoyable. By the middle of S4, I think it lost its way and never regained it. 

 

Then a few seasons ago, I started to resent its mudspinning. It became more about stupid people doing stupid things in a zombie world. I can't even tell you after what season she and I just mutually stopped watching. Probably 8 or 9, whenever <main character> let <main character> live without execution. 

 

I don't miss it one bit. I can't believe it's still running. I lost interest when Gimple ran it into the ground, and the new showrunner won't win me back. 

 

I can't believe it's spawned two television spinoffs and will also spawn a film franchise and cinematic universe.

I liked TWD until season 4 or 5, I guess, I dunno, that one when Carol single handlely destroys a compound of villains to set the other characters free. Loved her character, so badass! Then, the show became just utter shit, ruining every character, including my favorites, Carol and Rick. I gave up on season 7, and never bothered to return.

CARNIVALE still has the best main titles of any T.V. show, this century.

 

It's good. I especially like what the piano does at the end.

I struggled with Walking Dead. How it became so trendy is bewildering. 

 

More popular than trendy.
