What's on TV?

Recommended Posts

Started watching Lost Girl. It's, like, a good 40% softcore lesbian porn, but I'm nonetheless hooked. Took me awhile to put my finger exactly on it, but it's kinda Fringe with fantasy creatures instead of science. Which is neat enough.

 

Also started watching Family Guy for some reason. Was surprised and disappointed to find I've actually seen at least the first ten seasons already. Show got bad long before that.

 

Also rewatched the first six seasons of Mad Men, started into the last I hadn't ever watched, and I just can't finish it. Some sort of mental and/or emotional block.

I watched a few episodes, but I think it tipped a bit too far over that line of ridiculousness for me. Might go back and try it again sometime tho.

I preferred the second season over the first.

In the wake of my being sucked into Lost Girl people keep telling me to watch Supernatural, but I know nothing of it.

 

Netflix keeps telling me to watch that Vampire Diaries spinoff, something about taking back a lost city, which actually sounds kind of cool with no details, but isn't VD (lulz) some teenybopper broccoli?

I've only seen a few episodes of Lost Girl and didn't get into it. When Supernatural came out I really liked it. I watched every episode up to season 6. Helped that my nephew was buying the DVDs so I borrowed his. Then I kind of lost interest and haven't watched for a few years.

Vampire Diaries was definite teenybopper territory.

The early seasons of Supernatural were good, but it's been past it's Best By date for many years now.

My 14 year old niece is quite the fan though.

If you're going to get into Supernatural, through season 5 is one complete storyline that wraps up nicely. Just don't watch the last... minute or so of the last episode of season 5. It's one of those shows that doesn't jump the shark, because that suggests that at some point it comes down. Supernatural jumps, and just keeps getting more and more nuts.

Not technically on TV, but I've finally made a start on season 2 of Daredevil.

Somewhat disappointed at the moment, as I'm really struggling to see what's going on in most of the night-time scenes. Hopefully the lighting improves or I may have to give up.

 

Finally received the second disc of Daredevil season 2.

 

And I still can't see anything.

 

Don't know if it's the show, the TV or my eyes but something has gone wrong, so I'm leaving it there.

Jessica Jones isn't my thing, and I'm not too sure if I should try the other two (not many people seemed to like them), so it looks like the Netflix Marvel-verse isn't for me.

 

Which is a shame because I was really looking forward to the rest after the rather good first season of Daredevil.

I'd give a try for the other 2. Luke Cage and Iron Fist are both good shows, but neither quite makes it to the level of awesomeness that Daredevil hit. Besides, when they do the Defenders, it's all 4 characters together.

And Sigourney Weaver!  Only a couple more weeks...

 

But the Netflix series do tend to be pretty darkly (un)lit.

Well I do need to wait for them to get their DVD releases, I'll probably be more willing to give them a try by the time that happens.

1. Yes, okay, I get it, "The Big Bang Theory" is a license to print money. That's okay. No one is forcing anyone to watch it. Some people like it, some don't.

But somehow, a prequel series featuring a nine year old Sheldon fills me with terrifying indifference.

2. Yes, okay, I get it. Star Trek done broke into a whole new parallel universe, and we have "The Kelvin Timeline" to remind me that Shatner and Nimoy and Kelley and the gang are all officially irrelevant. And apparently, this whole Kelvin thing caused the Klingon Empire to become something totally different, with different ships, uniforms, and physical appearances. Oh, and a different culture, too. Because we can't leave things alone.

Had a fellow lecture me about how the Klingons are different because, well, not all humans look the same, do they? And we got black Vulcans, yes? Well, these are just ethnically DIFFERENT Klingons, that's all. Perhaps from a different planet in the Empire. And that solves it.

Yeah, well, humans come in a lot of colors and appearances. Even in Star Trek. But I notice that we gots a whole Federation, and for some reason, none of the humans are bald and purple. So, we left the humans alone. And came up with a completely different Klingon empire.

Sheesh.

A famous producer once said, "I want writers to write scripts that take place on my TV show, featuring my characters. What I don't want is scripts that take place on my TV show, featuring THEIR characters, while MY characters stand around watching." But apparently, if your name gets big enough...
