Why does everyone still like Urkel? I mean, this is 2011, not 1990

I don't. Never did. I was always indifferent. Didn't watch the show.

He did a pretty good cameo in the first episode of house in season 8.

HELL NO.

And shame on Jaleel White for trying to steal Giancarlo Esposito's thunder.

I'm at peace with this.

I mean, seriously? A Spiffy tag? That might fly for Jaleel's one-episode stint on Psych, but you don't bring that to Breaking Bad.

Oh, HELL no.

It could've been over.

The fourth season finale was intended to stand as a series finale if AMC chopped the legs out from underneath them.

Since it *wasn't* the series finale, more hilarity is to ensue.

Put him on "Burn Notice" for one episode, and have him get killed off.

But please, do NOT make him the villain behind the villain behind the villain behind the villain behind the villain behind the villain behind the villain behind the villain.

If someone emerges as the person pulling Anson's strings, I am so giving the hell up on Burn Notice.

Because I didn't discover The Wire until the 5th season this is the first time I'm excited about a show that won't begin months before the first episode of this coming season.

Also... Roadhouse was playing, although with the sound muted, at my neighborhood bar during Trivia night last Thursday... I understand your enthusiasm. It was both surreal and sublime.

A Bloody Disaster: Because I didn't discover The Wire until the 5th season this is the first time I'm excited about a show that won't begin months before the first episode of this coming season.

Sweet deal!

I'm looking forward to it at the same time that I'm NOT looking forward to the whole thing ending. It's the best ticket on TV right now, and it'll suck to see it go.


Also... Roadhouse was playing, although with the sound muted, at my neighborhood bar during Trivia night last Thursday... I understand your enthusiasm. It was both surreal and sublime.

Oh, dude, you're just enjoying the tip of the iceberg!

Once you hear the ridiculously implausible things that these characters say, your appreciation of Road House will climb a thousandfold.

Haha, I agree. That would be too much for me too. Every time you think you know who screwed Michael, in walks a new villain who is ready to screw with his head again, and make him his biatch. That shtick is getting tiresome. I like Burn Notice. But I don't know how they can keep it going for another eleventy years, like you know they probably want to.
 
2012-01-08 12:00:12 PM
No, go fark yourself Urkel

I don't see any problem with this; he's an actor and Urkel was an (mind-shatteringly annoying) character, who he played to the hilt. The downside is he got completely typecast by doing his job so well.

velvet_fog: Mike Nelson is Urkel!!! (new window)

Torgo on Breaking Bad, I could understand.

It's like the massive, ungodly game of Villain Telephone Tag that plagued 24 from Seasons 5 to 7. It was as if you learned of a new head conspirator every other week.

At some point, you just assume that the Loch Ness Monster and Andy Kaufman played a part in going after David Palmer.


As for Burn Notice, if I never have to hear some variation of the phrase "I have to discover who burned me," I will be *ecstatic.*


I like Burn Notice. But I don't know how they can keep it going for another eleventy years, like you know they probably want to.

I hear that.

I loved The A-Team too, but they ran that jazz into the ground in Season 5 when the A-Team started working for the government. I'm JUST sayin'.
 
2012-01-08 12:06:43 PM
What's next?
Screech proclaiming his potential contributions to 'Justified?'

My problem with this is that it would be stunt casting during the final season of the show, the season where they're wrapping everything up.

Hey, I dig Eric Roberts as much as the next bad movie aficionado, but I don't want to see him run Breaking Bad off the rails just because he likes the show as well.

Season 4 will be a Harlan gangland battle between him and Paul from The Wonder Years.

Yeah, and aren't we on season 5 as of now? Where's Michael working? Oh look at that. CIA headquarters in Miami. Pfft. I think the show will end in the next couple of seasons, and if not, they'll probably do some new storyline where Michael became a boozer, and got thrown out of the CIA. Then he had to teach karate to children at the dojo down the street from IHOP.

Many thanks, I dl'd and watched all 4 seasons 2 weeks ago.
After wards I said to myself, what a wonderful ending (and the perfect time to start the series)! And didn't think much more of it.

That... might be a bad omen.

Yeah, it's difficult to see this show going past seven seasons with the overarching Burned Spies Incorporated storyline.

Besides, I always dug the "help the downtrodden victim of the week" storylines better.

You're very welcome, and I'm glad you dug the whole thing!

I love the show. The fourth season finale could've been the end of it all, and I would've been satisfied (except for that ooooooooooooooone big loose end still kicking around in Mexico).

But yeah, there'll be another 16 episodes ready to start unrolling sometime this year.
 
2012-01-08 12:22:53 PM
As someone who looked like Urkel as a teen exactly during the show's heyday, I'm not getting a kick out of these replies.

:(

I'm only up to season 3 now, but I remain absolutely convinced that it's Michael's mother who arranged everything so she could have him home again.

Arachnophobe: I'm only up to season 3 now, but I remain absolutely convinced that it's Michael's mother who arranged everything so she could have him home again.

There was a point where I was convinced that Michael's dad was actually still alive and arranging everything.

I'm not entirely unconvinced that this won't turn out to be the case.

I thought Q/That Guy From Days of Our Lives was going to be intolerable, but he played his role so well that I really felt for him when his daughter OD'd.

That was a brilliant season closer, that one. You definitely bought John DeLancie as a grief-stricken father.

I don't know a great deal about Star Trek, so I can't really say that his appearance on the show raised any red flags in my book.
 
2012-01-08 12:44:27 PM
Okay, make him a tweaker who gets killed and doesn't have any dialogue.

I found him irritating on TNG (which was kinda the point of his character) and my mom was a huge Days of Our Live fan in the 1980s, so I was expecting soap opera-quality melodrama from him, but he brought the goods.

Personally, I like to see the completely typecast get second chances on shows, and I've found they're successful when you stop thinking of them as "that guy from that other show".From what I've read about Jaleel White, he seems like a nice guy and he deserves a chance to have a real acting career.

We shall see. I have faith in the creative folk on Breaking Bad; they haven't mis-stepped yet.

To my knowledge the show was given a fixed out of six seasons. Similar to lost and we all know how that ended.

Fair enough.

I mean, hey, who would've thought that the doofy dad from Malcolm in the Middle could've carried and commanded a show of this nature?

That said, I'm a little bit hesitant about any creative casting during the show's last run.


We shall see. I have faith in the creative folk on Breaking Bad; they haven't mis-stepped yet.

Definitely. My faith in the Breaking Bad team has surpassed my faith in Chris Nolan, and I'm pretty confident about what he's capable of.

This article was on fark a few months back with a White interview. He came off REALLY well in it. He was articulate, funny, and thankful for the child's role he was lucky enough to be a part of. He did this despite the horrible typecasting and lifetime of bad jokes he must endure. He didn't blow his money, or turn out a freak like so many other child stars. He was even understanding of the fact that Reginald VelJohnson was upset at how the show became Urkel based, instead of a "father knows best" Cosby show knockoff. Read it and tell me you can't root for the guy.

I'll give the guy a pass and wish him the best.

why does subby hate breaking bad so much as to want urkel to star in it for the last season?

f*ck u subby.
 
2012-01-08 01:56:05 PM
Eh, who knows, maybe he'd do great. I say give him a chance.

Also read: How not to write an article.
 
2012-01-08 01:57:01 PM
Mmmm, yeah, pencil me in for a couple of noes.
 
2012-01-08 02:15:09 PM
I'd be okay with it.

He's not a bad actor, and it's not like he'd be going full Urkel in the part.

As long as the writing staff utilized him in such a way that didn't feel forced (Odekirk as Saul is a good example), then I'd be down for it.

Funny, I was thinking that the one actor I'm not willing to give a second chance to is Frankie Muniz.
 
2012-01-08 02:54:19 PM
No, and he won't be because the writers have integrity, unlike say... Dexter where I'm sure he'd be welcomed if it meant one more Showtime subscriber.
 
2012-01-08 02:56:18 PM
Did I do that......biatch?

Having just watched that, I have to agree.
