If the first four didn't draw you in, you made the right call. Even among fans, it's kind of become the show you love to hate because so many of the characters are flat out unlikable. In spite of that, and for reasons I really can't explain, I keep coming back to it.

I will say, some of the Season 3 episodes have been amazing. I like the direction they're taking and eagerly look forward to seem how they're going to screw it all up.

Yes, Robot Chicken is still great. Still makes me laugh.

Aqua Teen You Know Whatever is its new name. Its stale. Nothing like what it used to be. Its hard to carry that absurdness for a long time, they should just retire it and bring out some new absurdity. When your appeal is being absurd, then the absurd becomes commonplace... stale.

Yeah. ATHF has sunk to gross out humor. I don't find it entertaining anymore. However Robot Chicken's season finale where the chicken got his revenge on the mad scientist was pretty epic.

And I still like WD. Season 3 has been great so far.

Yes he's right. But if it appears on Fark, you can be sure some Farker is sick of it, liked it before it was cool but it sucks now, or only mouth breathers and people with single digit IQs watch it. Best to just expect it and ignore it.

I think what makes The Walking Dead interesting is that it's not the typical zombie apocalypse plot. It's not just about fighting a bunch of zombies. Instead, it is really about trying to survive in the post-apocalyptic world. The minutia (finding food, traveling, etc.) of day-to-day live is stressed more than just killing a bunch of monsters.

There was more of this aspect in the plot line for season 2, which is why I think people gave it poorer ratings. Season 3, so far, has been more about killing zombies (and killing people), which is why I think that the show seems "better" to most.

Still, to me, the brilliance of this series is that it focuses on the living instead of the dead.
 
2012-11-16 10:46:50 PM  
Enh.

I'll be honest, it's not the hate, it's well, the shift from season 1 to season 2's different writers. Let's be honest, there was a lot of things that stuck out, and stuck out poorly:

*The Church still having power
*The derp yelling at Christ in said church
*Let's go into the woods with a child, oh BTW, stay here
*Well, we lost one kid, lets wander the woods with another

To say things were poorly written would be an understatement. Then we had the equivalent of BSG running out of money for effects, which resulted in Farm, Farm, OMG Farm, FarmFarm Farm. It would appear, for the moment, that Season 3 is better.

Now, I can relate to loving something against all odds; you probably couldn't get geekier than I can with weird stuff like Space 1999 or Old Dr. Who. However, I'm comfortable with acknowledging when the series got crummy (5th Doctor), or how the sets were hokey, so on and so forth.

Yelling with a nerd-boner in your sweatpants with your fingers in your ears when even slightly challenged will quite likely get you a seat on the Eltingville comic book club. Lighten up.
 
2012-11-16 11:39:58 PM  
I kind fo liked the farm section...even though I was bugged by a lot of the writing with many of the characters.

And while everyone focuses pn the Sofia aspect, I thought that the whole arc where everyone was trying to figure out what to do with the injured sniper guy was pretty interesting.

Now season three is mostly about graphic zombie kills, but not much in the way of moral questions.

MrEricSir: Robot Chicken is still around? Has it become as stale as Aqua Teen (or whatever they're calling it now?)


Robot Chicken now relies ENTIRELY on parodying TV shows and childhood memories of the 80's with poop, gay, and dick jokes written by eight-year olds (as opposed to just MOSTLY relying on it as the first few seasons did). It was old after the first season and I've since stopped watching for the most part. It's reached almost a Tim & Eric level of banality for me. Almost. The fact that it's still on the air with the ratings it receives is nothing short of baffling. I still genuinely enjoy Aqua Teens though. It's original if nothing else. It's only gotten better in the past three or so seasons imho.

I thought the last season was great. Carl or mearwad heavy episodes rarely disappoint.

I just went back and re-watch seasons 1-5.

It peaked in season 2. A good episode in seasons 4 and 5 is one that gets two laughs instead of zero or one.
