It moved over to Peacock but you have to have a pay subscription for the entire series.

wtf?

Peacock, a pay subscription, has separate pay subscriptions for certain shows?

edit: Okay it looks like it's same as hulu was, pay $8 to unlock all the shows +no ads.

Given the state of streaming I was completely ready to believe that they are adding content $ tiers for their most popular stuff.

So was he cleared of being a sex pest then? I've lost track.

Being the super-mega Times Up guy who professed to doing a huge amount of research to write a book about modern dating who freely admits he kept grinning while pointing to his junk and said "hey are you gonna blow me now?" during a first date he never ascended to true sex pest status and dodged the calls for cancellation.

It's more of a personal choice about someone who's private life was disclosed and they did gross things but didn't commit crimes, so you have to decide based on that.

Felt the same way about that Space Force show. How did so many funny people make something so bad?

I have a hard time understanding why people think its funny. Either Steve Carrell was doing a terrible job thinking it was great, or the writing and directing for his role was so bad he didn't put up a fight and just did as he was told.

The whole "stick it to both sides Congress" scene has aged phenomenally poorly as well given the current climate.

I can't remember how long ago I started but I finally managed to drag myself through the last season of Grimm.

Overall? Maybe, just barely a 7/10 being very generous to the back 1/2 of the series. You really do have to just quit thinking about how Portland is basically the center of the magical world in terms of crime and significance of events. It's like how the town in Murder She Wrote had a murder rate 100x the national average.

Seasons 1/2 are excellent casual serial network fantasy. It's not offering anything complicated or deep and there are more then a few god awful lines in most episodes but it's got an overall charm and wonder to it. Early on there's a real fun mystery feel as the viewer and cast discover the secrets of the monster(Wesen) society. There's obviously tons of references to European folklore and myths, much later on they get into things like the Chupacabra, but the major bulk of it is Western European themed folklore.

The show went off the rails pretty hard since the writers didn't really plan out their meta plot; one of the frequently mentioned macguffins across multiple early seasons just stops being talked about at one point and never appears again. Some characters seem like they were the writers/favorites because they just get shoehorned back into the plot with almost 0 foreshadowing. Very often there are scenes that exist to give them more to do, like building up a side plot, that are completely forgotten about within a few episodes.

By the 20x time Nick goes to ask his Wesen friends about some mysterious event and they dramatically look at each other and say "no, it couldn't be, that's impossible" before finding a book that explains in great detail what the monster of the week is you've definitely abandoned the hope the show is going to magically improve.

The cast is the only reason to stick with it. The chemistry of Nick, Hank, Wu, Renard, Monroe, Rosalee, and somewhat Juliette are what keep the show engaging. Juliette suffers from some very poor writing and directing because I've seen that actress in Supergirl as Lois Lane and she does a much better job. Claire Coffee is pretty inconsistent which I got the impression was the writing because when she had to act well she could, but there were some lines that just couldn't be made good.

I did benefit from having watched most of Grimm when it aired, so I was familiar enough with season 1-4 and the first chunk of 5 to have it on in the background and not be missing any details. The rest of S5 and S6 were new for me and just kind of baffling how many times its felt like the writing was the equivalent was "gently caress it, scripts are due"

Now I deserve to finish up a better show, so its on to Vikings, which I stopped watching after the sack of Paris episodes.

A 2 1/2 hour long video talking about The Vampire Diaries.

I've made jokes about stuff that like for video games but for a CW teen soap opera that doesn't seem like remotely enough time to cover what happened.

Just a detailed breakdown of straight and gay relationships in The 100 would take minimum 2 hours, more like 6 if also including the fan-base reactions and insanity.

Babylon 5 was genre defying at the time because no one though a long running serial series would find an audience in the days before DVR. The conventional wisdom was any 22 so season show needed to have mostly self contained episodes, maybe 2 parter mid season finales.

From a writing and story telling perspective it was/is pretty unmatched by any contemporary shows and even today a lot of new sci fi/fantasy shows can't pull it off as well as they did either from cancellation dangling over their head or assuming spending a ton of $$$ on sfx makes up for nonsense plot.

B5 benefited immensely from JMS having to stretch the budget as much as he could, and many of the main cast are the kinds of people who'd get minor recurring roles or where difficult to employ but still phenomenally hard working actors. Going by the standards of the time then and even now few if any of then are "leading cast" material on paper.

Ex. Richard Briggs (90% deaf had to read lips to follow other actors) basically memorized entire scenes he was in so he'd be able to hit his queue perfectly. That level of insane dedication to the job was apparent in everything he brought to the show.

Mira Furlan (rip) was coming straight over from the war in Bosnia and was basically learning English at the same time she was doing the show.

Andreas Katsulas could effortlessly hold his own against Patrick Stewart during his Star Trek guest roles and brought the same intense Shakespeare energy to B5.

A Teacher - Hulu show where Kate Mara is a young teacher who fucks a student. Didnít watch this one but it seemed to be generally well-reviewed, if considered a little slow.

Reviews seem to make it out like it handles that dynamic as hosed up as it really is from the student's perspective. Since Mary Kay Leternou it's always been "lol lucky dude" but the reality is they are victims of an abuser in a power dynamic and it fucks them up massively wrt their understanding of healthy sexual relationships.

Obviously now social media notoriety makes the guy a figure of renown with other guys but it's the equivalent of every time you meet a rape victim you go "oh yeah, you got raped a bunch of times, how was it?"

Yeah I get the general grossness of dissecting cats to begin with, but it's not like production killed them first. No one got forced, everyone got paid. Seems like a non story to me.
I doubt any of the actors in the scene were getting course credit for the dissection, so it's literally just for shock value.

It's understood the dead are used for educational and training purposes, not used as a prop to make a TV show look more real. Doing that is tasteless, gross, and really undermines the central idea that dissection as a learning method is supposed to be somewhat serious and respectful of the animal and meant for a actual purpose beyond entertainment.

You would need to find some really amazing team captains for it to work. A large part of what makes the show work is Lee Macks quick wit and David Mitchells ranting. Also the comedy scene here in the US seems to a be a whole different beast than the one in the UK. Outside of working the clubs comics there get a lot of tv shows or panel show appearances to make a name for themselves, theres nothing really like that here.

Like series 5/6 David Mitchell is talking about his flat in London he shares with roommates. This was well into the worldwide success of Peep Show.

The culture of panel shows just doesn't exist in America because you aren't going to get American celebrities to do that kind of thing. They'd basically have to tap and recruit any American comedians working the EU circuit and try and entice all the Canadian/AUS comedians to come to LA to film a single episode of a show.

Re: the US "comedy" scene, it's pretty much 90% white male douchebag comics who are either alt-right or play the truth in the middle card.

Since they cancelled Buzzcocks I think Mock the Week & HIGNY are the only shows going on nearly 20 series, I'm pretty sure they get all the prompts ahead of time to come up with material. HIGNY isn't even a comedy show it's more like a news discussion with occasional jokes.

Mama June lost custody of her to the girl's older sister after the meth charges, and now the new series is all about her redemption story.

I watched S4 when it came out and kind of liked it, then a while back after season 5 was out, started a rewatch of the whole series, and the jump from S3 finale to episode 1 S4 was so jarring I stopped watching.

S4/5 is practically a different show. Even the greenscreen/fake actors wasn't as hard to digest as the shift in the writing and humor. It was trying so hard to be Arrested Development S1-3 humor but it just kept missing the target. Their more original ideas/plots went off a lot better, but they spent so long on the Micheal knows sea law joke (a reference to a single line from nearly 15 years ago) it was clearly just smashing the "everybody remember this classic bit?" button multiple times an episode.

Because the normal conservatives don't make it their sole identity.

Nick Searcy is pretty conservative, more of a rude rear end in a top hat then a Q nut, and one time casually mentioned that hey, maybe being a known conservative cost him acting gigs at some point but he was fine with it, whole nature of the beast industry of acting. Right Wing media went nuts pushing story after story about Hollywood liberals and Searcy had to issue a follow-up along the lines of "who loving cares? there's a million bullshit reasons you don't get hired, like resembling the casting director's childhood bully, it's not a fair industry"

He still goes on about the "commies" in Antifa but that kind of seems like more angry old man stuff then talking about how the deep state has already killed Biden and secretly replaced him with a Trump puppet.

I think he shot himself in the foot by going to a new network and making the same show. Like, he could drop the baggage of Late Night but... kept the terrible monologues and stiff canned interviews? He mixed it up a bit with pre-taped segments, but overall it felt more tired than innovative.

The best stuff he ever did was just goofing around during the writers strike. It showed how great he can be at controlled chaos and improvising. Going back to a stale format when he had the chance to play to his strengths was a bad move.

Stuff like that was where he shined and its a shame he stuck with the talk show format for so long. His side content, like the office skits, and the world tour travelogues, became the most entertaining things he did by far. The rest was just a lot of standard late night fare you can see from anyone, he didn't really bring anything exciting to the table.

When he scaled down his show majorly in the last year or show, the leather jacket era, that seemed like more then anything a sign it was either gut his budget or get cancelled, and he's probably retiring now because he's tired of fighting the network for money.
