Oh, the original showrunner is helming this Dexter revival.

Kinda gives me hope this is an excuse to go back and wrap the show up properly, aka Dexter getting caught and loving executed.

I mean, at the very least it means we're not saddled with the showrunner who legit considered Dexter a superhero.

id be down for a miniseries that starts off the episode directly in to the intro music of him going through his prison morning routine. him appealing the death penalty, a bunch of talking heads in rooms like mindhunters. it could be good

The Henley industry asked showtime to revive dexter. Sales haven't been the same since the show ended.

In other news I've started watching Mary Tyler Moore as a result of chasing that comfort tv high and it's pretty good. I always remember it as the show my parents would watch on TV land or Nick at Nite. I'm only about halfway through season 1 and the writing is pretty good and the cast has a good chemistry. Also Mary Tyler Moore is pretty charming; I feel like I should find her singy delivery of some lines annoying but I just can't help but like it.

Watching Cobra Kai since it is on Netflix and it was kind of weird that Mr Miyagi's grave made him older and live longer than Pat Morita.

Mr. Miyagi was a WW2 vet (and Medal of Honor winner) in the first movie, and Pat Morita was born in 1932 so he was always playing older.

Tbh, I'm surprised they've never tried a Miyagi centered prequel, and honestly I'd be for it. You can get a lot of dramatic mileage out of the WW2 Japanese-American GI experience.

Hah! I had forgotten these... I almost wish we had a best of thread that could tie in Lost, SoA and Dexter. There were so many good moments on those threads, even moreso as the shows declined. GoT thread was never half as good although I adored Wizard Master's post every episode.

Finished Evil the other day and really good recommendation. I really like the mix of supernatural creepiness and humour. The Leland going to his "therapist" scene had me almost choke with laughter. Ending of 9 made me laugh hard and then go "oh gently caress" chills. Another ep made me realize I have a phobia of hospitals. Definitely a early 00s throwback show with far better budget and I will back up the thread recommendation. Thanks yet again.

Bored and trapped streaming as Covid ramps up again so... started Almost Human. Well I say started but already on episode 10. How was this show cancelled? Excellent casting, good sfx, a bit police procedural with a nice sci fi hook. Really fun show that had some potential. Reminded me of a softer Judge Dredd with all the talk of over "Over the Wall" and them deliberately talking around the matter but obviously living in a Mega City. Anyone know if that is where it was headed? Why the gently caress was it cancelled?

Yeah, it was only a fluke that the X-Files made it, it was nearly cancelled in the first season, and I recall it made it to the cover of TV Guide's annual "Save our Shows" issue.

It was super jarring, too, since the main characters had like an arc going on so they’d be friendly one episode and hostile the next for no apparent reason.

This is a really cool idea that I may try to do after I've finished my move at the end of the month and settled in. If anybody has any show threads they want me to try to dig up, or want to dig up or have already dug up themselves, shoot me a PM or smth!

Maybe I'll make a channel in the Discord to arrange such an endeavour. A TVIV best of sticky could be a lot of fun. I'll just make the OP Wizard Master's GoT post and a bunch of links.

From what I remember the best part of Almost Human was the banter between the leads while they drive around to their next investigation. Everything else seemed like super generic cop show stuff or scifi AI stories we've seen a billion times already.

Banter is a big draw. Karl Urban is the reason I chose to give er a go and he's great. Funny thing is he actually uses the Billy Butcher voice going undercover in one episode. It was, on the surface, a cop procedural but then you you get insanely large amounts of tidbits in the background that are setting up a world that would have been fun. The bitcoin thing was bueno and I liked how they talked about it being THE anonymous currency used by many a shady dealing and a main component of the darknet. You had psyche (think Judge Dredd or telepaths and psychics but real) enhancing drugs, programs both overt and covert to genetically enhance humans, the silicon soul, nanotech, organ smuggling market because big corps make it hard for regular people to get replacement organs, skin harvesting people to create a better sexbots and more. My favourite bits were were the previous models of bots with the silicon soul became slightly problematic and were replaced with newer, cheaper models who were pure logic, talks about sending people to the cubes or the times it was referred to going beyond the wall with hints that it was a wasteland. Tons of little bits and pieces of world building that could have been awesome to explore in a few seasons. If you were a fan of Judge Dredd it felt fairly familiar. Very dystopian feel. Weirdly the surface cop procedural seems more like a way to make the show more accessible and deliberately done to coat the pill. Really was a punch to the nethers when I finished it. It was made around the same time as Utopia so that's two shows of that time that I'm really irritated we didn't get more of.

Hah.... Wizard Master and the agriculture chat were the highlights of game of thrones. As far as the rest: SoA, Dexter and Lost were the main three but... I swear there was a couple more that came close. OH True Blood. That one had some moments.

Dexter SHOULD be on Crave in Canada. Everything HBO and Showtime is there, and last I checked this includes backlogs for both networks.

e: yeah just double checked and it's there w/ the rest of showtime's stuff

e2: ^^ yeah I was thinking True Blood as well, those threads were fun af especially the more ridiculous the show became after Alan Ball left
if we turn this into a serious endeavour i'll either set up a temporary thread for people to suggest shows to dig up or who have links for threads already, or like I said make a dedicated channel in the TVIV Discord for it
