Yeah, seems like all TV producers can think up are shows about cops or hospitals. Just once I'd like to see a TV show set in a Post Office.


"Boss! Boss! This parcel is ticking!!"

"Looks like someone's getting a clock for Christmas."

YEEEEAAAAAAH...

Awesome!

"There's a woman at the front desk demanding a book of Elvis commemorative stamps, but we haven't had those for years!"
"Tell her we're sorry...but Elvis has left the building."
YEEEAAAAAAH!

Somebody has to make that show!

Fringe = vapid, heavy-handed ripoff of The X-Files.

When I first saw the commercials, I thought to myself, "X-files with a chick who's less hot than Gillian Anderson and the black guy who steals thoughts from Heroes."  Then I realized all women are less hot than Gillian Anderson and that wasn't the guy from Heroes.  Disappointing all around.

So the show isn't great?

It's actually alright. Just lacking in subtlety. The writers think that by making the phenomenon 'science-y' then that eliminates the need for mystery and ambiguity to curb viewer disbelief. The X-Files was such a success because most of the time the fantastical element is never fully revealed and the facts remain in question. Fringe just slaps you in the face and says "There's something fantastic, laid bare, no question - deal with it". To me that sort of spoils the fun.
It's really only saved by the crazy old professor guy who's absolutely hilarious.

I love Gillian too. As an adolescent I used to watch her on the show and then retreat to my bedroom for hours at a time. She made a man of me big grin

Nothing is on Tuesdays.

Everything is on Tuesdays, The Simpsons, then Worst Week which I think is a terrible show and I don't watch it, but after that is How I Met Your Mother, then Bones and then Ashes to Ashes, which is a spin-off from Life on Mars, the first show wasn't all too good but I think I'll keep watching it anyway.

Dollhouse Ep 6.

Farking amazing. Really bammed it up a notch, and the pudgy dude(What's he been in recently? Was he in Chuck not that long ago?)'s story was pretty sad. The fight between Echo and FBI dude was freaken awesome, as was the "Look out he's got a gun" bit. I hope this one has staying power and doesn't get cancelled. Also, can't help by squeee BADGER! whenever he comes on screen, i love how Joss recycles his cast. ^_^

I'm a bit behind on Dollhouse. Must watch ep 5 and 6 this week to catch up. Nice to hear you liked ep 6 so much, I'll make sure I pay extra attention to it!

Seriously, it's a real game changer. It's changed it from an average "What's she going to be this week!" kind of show, to a "JESUSCHRISTINEEDTOSEENEXTWEEK SEPNOW!" kinda thing...

Season 1 of The Wire is the best.

Dollhouse is my favorite show right now.  They've been building and building and Episode 6 got me so hype.  Someone make a Dollhouse thread. wink

Ahh that is better. Nearly gave up there Mr Wheadon but episode six has given me hope again. Hell now I think of it most of his series take a little time to warm up, both Buffy and Angel did not really hit their stride til the second seasons. Let's hope that now it is more interesting it will not be canceled.

Other TV shinnanigans. Watch Nathen Barley over the weekend, nice to see a show by Chris Morris and Charlie Brooker. Lots of fun and also quite scary that I have met quite a few people who are just like many of the characters in the show. The idiots are winning.

Finally for those who do not know and live in the UK. The Wire starts on 30th March BBC2 and it appears they will be showing it throughout the week. So if yu have not seen the show please watch it is well woth it

How I Met Your Mother is brilliant. I think half of it is thanks to the awesomeness of a fella called Barney Stinson.

He pretty much makes that show!

But it also has a similar formula to Family Guy, don't you think? They tell alot of stories through amusing flashbacks that are often pretty unreal tongue

Still.. i love it too.

The Inbetweeners: any show that has a guy projectile vomiting on a young childs head is ok in my books!

It's simple, like Skins without all the DRAMA, and it's funnier. big grin

Oh my god I am so looking forward to The Inbetweeners. I like the trailer to it where Neils head stuck to a chair and somebody pulled Will's trousers while he giving out leflets.

So I'm watching Torchwood via Netflix.  It seems to me that for being one of Earth's last lines of defense, Torchwood seems woefully unprepared to deal with the threats it encounters on a weekly basis.

"the fuck did I do?" Is the Wire's "I've got a bad feeling about this" isn't it?

Except it's always McNulty saying it rather then various characters.
