  • Re: TV: Did you make Barry's List?

    Also, the last network TV shows I considered great were House and Lost. Since then it’s been hit or miss. Gotham with Jerome was awesome. But other seasons have been boring.

    The problem with network tv is that they don’t do serials. Just boring episodic, ctrl+a, ctrl+c, ctrl+v.

      Was Alcatraz network? That was intriguing until they went down the "criminal of the week" path and got cancelled.

      Shows I am watching right now:
      Better Call Saul
      Mayans
      Jessica Jones
      Luke Cage (mainly to get his background, since he's in Jessica Jones a bit, and yes I know it's been cancelled; halfway through S2)
      Queen Of The South
      Narcos: Mexico

      Pretty sure Mindhunter, Bad Blood, GLOW, and Dear White People will have future seasons. Dunno about Manhunt.

      I think the last comedies I liked were Californication and The League (although the last 2 seasons of each pretty much sucked).

        Saw some of the latest of Leah Remini's A&E show on Scientology last week (because what the hell else does a guy on a work assignment in South Carolina do after dinner but watch this crap? ), and the stuff about what they have done to infiltrate the government and law enforcement of Clearwater, FL is mind-boggling to the point that if you didn't know Scientology was a gaslighting pseudoscience cult, you'd suspect the show was sensationalizing some of it.

          The whole series is crazy and worth watching.

              Hey Kep, what do you and Dr. Mrs. think of this season of Crazy Ex GF? I know you were worried they were going to try and redeem Rebecca but so far they havent done that at all. Been very interesting so far though not the best season obviously.

                I'll ask She Who Must Be Obeyed. I lost the thread the prior season where she was trying to kill Josh, and as you said I hated the season finale. I also don't care about Paula so when they increased her portion of the show I lost interest. Pretty sure Dr. Mrs. still likes it, but it's not the Glorious You Must Watch This of S1.

                    Paula is barely on this season...just saying

                    If it makes you feel better Rebecca is not being redeemed. She is not the hero. They pretend she is getting better then beat you over the head with the fact that she is still selfish and kinda awful.

                      That is good. I like how horrible Rebecca is. The show is an experiment in making a central character beyond redemption and then exposing the shallowness and unreality of all the tropes of how character arcs in fiction always bring those characters back to The Good. Mrs. Maisel is doing the same thing but at a much more subtle level -- enough so that the audience hasn't figured it out, yet, nor, I suspect, the lead actress. Both of them are extremely subversive to the generic programming of TV of the past 50 years.
