I dunno I think the real shame is that they cut the Sophia character from series regular to only guesting on the holiday specials. I guess the actress is trying to break into film but we all know how well that usually works out. When The Actuary flops she'll come crawling back.

I guess the show got greenlit based on the short that was on the DVD of one of the Marvel movies. It was pretty good, but who knows if they'll be able to keep it up over an entire series.
It helps that she is a more interesting character than all of the characters on AoS combined.

Someone name a TV show where they liked its ending and also genuinely liked the show (i.e. the ending can't be liked because it was simply put out of its misery like a dying dog).

Both good Stargates, Breaking Bad, Avatar TLA, Seinfeld (not as much at the time), Colbert Report, Space Above and Beyond, Futurama pre-revival, Terriers, The Shield, The Wire.

HIMYM is kind of worse than LOST in a way, in that they knew they had a real turd on their hands.

Well Joe is not wrong that some shows should just learn to end it on a good note and let them sail off into the sunset. Maybe close a few things off but I much prefer shows that know they should end on "and they had more adventures after this", although to be fair that's what most shows that get canceled end up having to do anyway.

Everyone speaks "English" because they all hail from Caprica originally. There are languages aside from English, like the Tauron language of Gangstaspeak.


That's true, which means that the ancient Capricans would laugh at us for using the word gently caress, a perversion of the original Frack.

Sci-fi shows everyone speaks english because it's tv and nobody wants to read fuckin' subtitles of some made up bullshit language outside of a few weirdos who taught themselves klingon or tolkien's finnish/elvish or whatever. They could technically say the word gently caress, or air hardcore gay scat horse porn, as far as the law has any control over cable, but instead they make silly fake swear words, which has gone on forever, so why is this even a discussion?

Ravane is correct. NCIS is deeply stupid but it is competent in a way that people don't always appreciate. When you watch an episode of that show, you aren't sitting there going "well I wonder if they're going to gently caress this episode up" because they don't. Every episode is an almost identical level of quality. Whether or not you like what's in the package is personal taste, but it's not the roller coaster ride that more ambitious shows have. It's actually pretty remarkable, really, that they're still churning them out after all this time.

If someone wanted to watch a procedural NCIS wouldn't be first on my personal list (*cough* Elementary *cough*) but there's a reason a zillion people watch it. You are getting into a very comfortable boat.

I like NCIS. Yes it's dumb, when it comes to computers it has roughly the level of comprehension I expect from a 90 year old, and Gibbs is magic, but these things are all net positives if you actually like the show. That said, Sophia is basically right, it's just a scary competent show that rarely stumbles. It's also got pretty well realized characters for a procedural, and the cast has genuine chemistry, both of these aspects I feel it really excels at. My biggest problem with it are the occasional hideously saccharine RAH RAH SUPPORT ARE TROUPES episodes but it's kind of to be expected.

It's like the Applebees of tv. You can do better, you'll be hungry an hour later, but it's easy, good enough, and you know exactly what you're going to get every time.

Incidentally, house buying/selling shows are the Arbys of tv.
