In case anyone was wondering where the Adult Swin/Toonami thread was, the mod of the anime forum has requested it be moved there so I let him have it. If there are any non anime shows that were discussed in there you're free to make another thread for them. But any discussions involving the anime shows need to go there.

Oh hey, good on Amazon for canning The After. A show that went so dumb in the last few minutes that I continue to forget it exists until someone else brings it up. I'm not sure I've ever seen a pilot that I was sold on halfway through but then ended in a way that made me laugh so hard and immediately trashed any good thoughts I had about it.

I searched "The After" because I never knew about it, and all I learned is that there was a guy walking around in a clown costume in it.



That guy is Jamie Kennedy and is awful in it. But somehow not even close to the awful of Arielle Kebbel who is on a completely different level of awful that I had thought was previously reserved for "friends of the producer" type actors. That accent she used made me want to stab my ears.

That Irish guy was hilariously Irish though.... although i think he probably didn't quite say "gently caress" enough

The whole thing was full of really questionable head scratching stuff like that. For instance hiring a not so great french actress with a really thick accent as the lead and then spend the entire first part of the episode focusing on her character as a bad french actress with a really thick accent that can't get any leading roles. Seemed really odd to start off on that foot. I mean she wasn't nearly as bad as the character was but it was kind of like, why draw attention to this at all?

Just saw the trailer for Vince Gilligan's new show and I don't think it could be more generic if it tried. I hope it's just a lovely trailer, but I really expected that he would do something original. I doubt he had a shortage of job offers after Breaking Bad ended.

The one thing I know about BSG is that the less you care about the science fiction aspects of it the more you will enjoy it. Which is why I enjoyed it quite a bit!

Yeah, the show could have been set on a farm or a boat and I would've enjoyed it just the same. I'm not really a fan of space shows and the setting really had little to do with why I enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed The Man in the High Castle pilot. Not a fan of how Amazon does a bunch of pilots first. I rather they just commit to a show from the start like Netflix so we have more to watch. The tone of the show feels the same as The Americans. Even the music is identical. I'm all for more spy shows like this.

That's the way every network does it. Only with Amazon you actually get to be in on the decision making.

So is it more serious talk or is it just more of "Make the news funny" like Stewart, Colbert, and Oliver? Because I've been pretty well burnt out on the latter for a good while. I guess it being on Comedy Central and being hosted by a comedian answers the question for me. But maybe not.

Sleepy Hollow has made three mistakes this year that has caused it to move from must see to will watch later. The first is downsizing Orlando Jones' role. The second is seemingly wrapping up a big part of the ongoing story too quickly. The third and biggest mistake is increasing Katia Winter's role. She should just be removed from the show altogether. The one good change up is adding Matt Barr because he's great and his character is a lot of fun.

Seven seasons seems to be the ultimate limit for a TV show to remain good. Are there any shows that have turned in their best seasons in 8+?

24 just had its best season, though the format change and time off probably helped a lot there. Supernatural's 8th season was probably tied with the 5th as the best in my opinion.

If you want to talk about SHIELD take it to the SHIELD thread. Unless you want to talk about how your taste is better than everyone else's. If you want to talk about that find a different forum because that poo poo is getting old. If you want to talk about why you do or don't like a show go for it. But knock off the useless arguments over taste. Nobody cares and all it does is cause pages and pages of worthless posts.

So you are fine with them making completely unnecessary changes to the characters just because they can? You don't find that the least bit stupid? I don't care if they make some changes but good lord if they are making this many changes then why bother calling it Supergirl? Why not just create a new heroine and give her this backstory? This is going be the stupidest DC series yet and none of you so-called fans can see it.
