Yeah, count me in on the pedo bear creepy "Have a Seat Right Over There" guilt lust over Ariel Winter on Modern Family.

I mean, damn

After the Late Show episodes, I am convinced Louie is the best show on television.

I just don't get the humor of Louie...its the same boring crap over and over.


1. Notice I didn't say best comedy, but rather best show. The best moments of Louie depend on his view of the world, his sensibility, not his humor.

2. Boring? OK, that's a subjective call. Same crap over and over? You're nuts. Where have you seen crap like this before?

It's a show where the kids are kids and parents are parents, unlike the usual TV dads who are idiots and kids who are a cross between Oscar Wilde and Groucho Marx (like Modern Family).

How many shows on television have characters who are actually affected by the choices they make?

You don't like the show, that's just like your opinion, man. But if you claim it's the same crap you've seen before, I'd like to know where.

coco ebert: I've watched Modern Family and it's certainly funny at times, the writing and acting is pretty good, but something annoys me about the show. I don't know what. It's kind of bland.


Is it the Colombian woman's loud mouth and grating voice? She makes Fran Dresher sound soothing. It's the reason I can't watch that show. It's hilarious but she makes me stabby.

There's something wrong with that list. They have Kevin Costner listed as an actor.

Sorry Subby, Modern Family has been on for more then 2 years and that is how long it can last before Fark beings to post tons of "Wait it's popular now? Screw this. The show is now bland and stupid" posts.

Why yes, Fark has our version of hipsters. Ours are fatter and uglier then your typical hipster of course.

/show is god damned hilarious (IMHO of course)

Good to see that Breaking Bad was almost shut out - it is a horrible show with over acting and beyond belief plots that make it seem more like a parody.

The guy who played the whiny Jesse didn't deserve to win but it was probably a sympathy vote.

coco ebert: This. That's been so played out though. The Office did it. Arrested Development did it. And the latter to me is darker, edgier, and funnier. I dunno, Modern Family feels like a bunch of TV execs sitting down and using focus group and statistical findings to create the "perfect" contemporary comedy. It's funny, but like a robot wrote it.

"It insists upon itself."

No, really, I completely agree with everything you said. It seems to me like they try too hard to be edgy and cute or something.  Whatever it is, I get no kicks out of that show. And the shaky-cam sucks too.

I don't know enough about 14 year olds on television to dispute this claim, but given the photographic evidence you have provided I'm going to put myself in the category of 'highly skeptical' as to the validity of your statement.

Also, would you mind taking a seat over there...

It strikes me as one of those shows that thinks it's edgy but is really very safe.

Why does it seem like all the comedies that have (thankfully) abandoned the laugh track also adopted the shaky cam?

The no laugh track is a byproduct of the current trend of moving sitcoms from multi-camera to single-camera. No reason they can't stick it on a Steadicam though. I think they're trying to be a pseudo mockocumentary (fake-fake-documentary?).

Homeland winning all those awards is the most sense the Emmys have made in a long, long time. I hope they can maintain into a second season without the bounds of credulity being too strained.
