The Television Thread

Talk about TV in here, yo.
Maybe there is no Heaven. Or maybe this is all pure gibberish - a product of the demented imagination of a lazy drunken hillbilly with a heart full of hate who has found a way to live out where the real winds blow - to sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink whiskey, and drive fast on empty streets with nothing in mind except falling in love and not getting arrested. Res ipsa loquitur. Let the good times roll.

The LA X episode was good. The Kate one was pretty bad and the last one that aired yesterday was also good. It's the same old stuff with Lost, they just keep trying to shock people with plot twists and things of that sort. I like the show though.

I liked it a lot more in the beginning, when the nature of the island was still the biggest mystery. Now I've just sort of become immune to the shocks that once seemed so, well, shocking. The last season especially just seemed like too much.

Yes, it may have been the worst episode of the series, at least the tattoo episode had Bai Ling to look at.

I need more True Blood. I'm wasting away without it. My friend borrowed the first season in September and still hasn't given it back, and it's taking way too long for season 2 to come out on DVD and season 3 to premiere :(

My next TV venture will either be Six Feet Under or The Sopranos (I've seen season 1). And then Rome in the summer when I can rent the Blu-rays.

Its one of, if not my favorite dramas. Season 1 and 2 are perfection, it dips a bit after that, but brings it back with the amazing final season.

You should force her to watch nothing but BA, Monty Python, and Fawlty Towers until she understands the importance of the classics

Amen. She fails overall.

I really should get back to watching Season 1 of Chuck. I bought it on DVD, saw the first episode, and then forgot to watch more. I've only seen the second half of Season 2.

Good. Good. It's great, even if it felt slightly drawn out to me the first time through (even at 13 episodes), but on rewatch it hasn't been a problem.

Definitely. The first time around especially, as it deals with different realities, basically. The fact that the 'episodes' are called 'layers' is appropriate.

Episode 1 (or 1 and 2, the first was a double episode) was great, episode 2 was a bit crummy, and episode 3 was great again.

Also episode 2 was Kate-centric. This may or may not have something to do with it being a bit crummy.

Ithil summed it up.

Personally, I like watching it live because I get to theorize and talk about it with others. But I can see some aspects of this season being more enjoyable on DVD.

Season 4 was the first one I watched live. Waiting for the next episode was painful but rewarding. Maybe I'll watch the final season live too, that finale blew my mind.

The Office has nothing left to really show, though. Aside from the branch possibly ending and of course Pam and Jim's baby being born. That's it.

Yeah. They should definitely end it after this season but I fear they are going to drag it into the ground. I hope that the branch closes at the end of this season. It would be fitting to considering America's economic woes right now.

I'm not sure if the show will end with the branch closing, though. They already previously milked the fear of that happening in previous seasons (plus this season), so I guess it would be a surprise if it did happen. I'd like to see the show end on a happy note, just for the hell of it. Maybe its because the show is a comedy, I guess.

I could see them doing that. I am really afraid of what they would do with a baby on the show. I just don't think it will work. Pam and Jim have already been pushed to the limit in terms of their written characters. I still think the show can pull a good episode out every week but it's getting harder and harder for them. I wonder how they would end it on a happy note though. It's already stretched out almost every plot line I can think of. Maybe Michael and Holly reunion? idk.

Right now I can't shake this feeling that Jim will end up leaving the branch, and Pam will follow. After the baby is born, probably. Having Michael re-unite with Holly makes the most sense, that's for sure. I wish the show was ending this season, but since its the cornerstone of the NBC Thursday night comedy lineup, I agree that the show will probably drag on for a couple more seasons. Sadly.
