I never said it didn't go both ways... although it has to be said that there isn't a single good show in the US to UK list (including both the original and the remake).
Wow, and all those shows suck.. all the USA 2 UK shows and all the UK 2 USA shows in those lists.. totally suck.
Seriously, 'Trigger Happy TV' was the only good one on those lists... and I liked both versions (since they each had Dom) and both versions aired in the USA.
The original version of Trigger Happy TV
is a masterpiece, the remake was... kind of shit spare for maybe 1 sketch per episode.
And all of those shows sucking? Fuck no.Da Ali G Show
(both versions), Fawlty Towers
, the original The IT Crowd
, One Foot in the Grave
, the original Red Dwarf
, the original Spaced
, the original The Thick of It
and both versions of The Office
all vary from being at least very good to fucking incredible and amongst the best TV ever made.
Most TV sucks, but the shows listed above do not.
Futurama's great, but I think by now everyone has seen an episode that make's them feel ashamed it got made.
I haven't but perhaps that's because I'm not some cretin who thinks that one crap episode is enough to justify 100+ good episodes never existing in the first place.
I can't even watch "Yo Leela Leela" unless the commentary track is on... same goes for "Beast With a Billion Backs", it's boring and seeing everyone get hentai tentacle raped was more "Family Guy" esque than...well... Peter pooping his pants whilst slipping down the stairs only to land in a puddle of urine soaked vomit at the bottom.
I hate when people compare things to Family Guy
without any sense of accuracy. Just because you found tentacle rape to be weird and/or crude, doesn't make it anything
like Family Guy
. And your little "sketch" isn't all that Family Guy
-esque either; there's no pop-culture references or things drawn out 5 times longer than they should be.
Also don't forget the rumor is CC wants new Futurama as long as SP is still being made.. so they have at least two heavy animated hitters.
Just because you said it right now doesn't make it a rumour.
Oh, and don't forget Matt wants an actual Futurama movie to be made..
More of a David X. Cohen dream, this one.
In a few years we might all be sick of Futurama... b/c less is usually more when it comes to T.V., and executives only care about $$$$$.
You have no idea what you're talking about. You're applying real principals in a completely random fashion in a feeble attempt to have an opinion.
That's why 'The Simpsons' has no dignity left and has become a parody of itself.
What? You mean it's got nothing to do with the writing?
Yes, it's original cancellation hurt the show overall but.. I hope Futurama struggles to be renewed each time, it will be better for the fans in the long run, even if they can't accept or see it right now.
Yeah, I'd rather the show struggle along with stop-start production schedules that cause writers and other staff to take other offers in case they don't get a renewal instead of the show being successful enough to warrant a bigger budget, a return to its previously larger writing staff and little pleasures such as orchestrated music. Who wouldn't prefer that?
Clearly success is what killed The Simpsons
as opposed to the changes in showrunner and writing staff as well as running so long that there's nothing but stupid/crazy/rehashed storylines left.
