The Shield had redeeming qualities. I could give two farks about the Sons of Anarchy and I sat through the first season waiting for it to get interesting.

Does he have a brother? I think the show would be better if he had a father. And a missing father. And later seasons could draw a parallel between the missing father and life in a universe apparently devoid of God. That show would be a hit.

I know I'll catch hell for this, but I really kind of liked Reaper.

I'd watch something in a similar vein.

All depends on how it is presented.  There is hardly anything new under the sun.  We will watch farking vampire shows if they are done well.

SOA is great for when you don't feel like reading and there isn't anything else on and you just want to watch something mildly entertaining.

Having muddled through SOA for five seasons, this will be on my "I'll check it out" list, as opposed to my "must watch."

Came for this.

I could stand to watch a dark/dramatic version of such a show. If it didn't suck.

If that were the case I'd actually watch it. John Glover was an amazing Satan.

Because People in power are Stupid: I could give two farks about the Sons of Anarchy and I sat through the first season waiting for it to get interesting.


That's my thought. I didn't find any of the characters terribly sympathetic and most are just outright stupid. I blazed through the seasons on Netflix and was underwhelmed after all the buzz it had gotten. Oh well, I'm just glad to see Ron Pearlman and Katy Sagal working.

This was a great idea when it was called Buffy, Angel, Reaper, and Supernatural.

Oh, and SOA sucks. It's so bad that not even Danny Trejo's presence can save it.

Pitch it to a subscription channel like Cinemax or Showtime and it would have the potential to kick major ass.

The biggest problem with that show, at least for me, were Jax and Tara. Opie's character would've made a far better main character. It's not the fault of the actors, they're just horribly written characters, with a horribly contrived romance.

I finally got to watch it, and damn I hate that they cancelled it... between that, Journeyman, and Camelot, Hex, and of course Firefly, etc... I don't know which one that I hate the most that they cancelled it.

They'll keep/kept renewing crap season after season (Everyone loves Raymond and so many garbage sitcom or such ... as an example), and so many shows that really jumped the shark ages ago, and yet, these shows that never got a chance, that was getting better and better, going somewhere, gets the carpet yanked out from under it.

He was farking brilliant in that role. It's too bad Brimstone didn't last longer; it was a really good show.

Yeah, Opie actually has some character development and shows signs of being interesting. ANd yeah, when I call characters "stupid" I usually mean they are written in a way that they make no sense and have no sense of what is happening around them.

It's the same problem The Walking Dead had up until this season. I genuinely wanted most of the characters to be killed in season 2 because they were so poorly hashed out that they were clinically retarded when it came to the world around them. Thankfully season 3 has corrected a lot of issues.

Just watch the first season of reaper.
Cancellation notice I think was early into the second season and so several of the actors just started mailing in their performances (Sock being the worst) . Got old fast.

I've learned SOA is somewhat more tolerable if you fast forward or turn your attention elsewhere through most scenes that feature a female character speaking, the writers' fault really.

Is Brimstone on Netflix?  John Glover is awesome.  Maybe the best part of Smallville (besides the eye candy of Kreuk and Durance.)

I am envious of his hair too.  And the dude was 57 when Smallville started and was in better shape then than I am at 47.  Bastard.

Maybe after believing that Angels are a myth one could fall from heaven and join their cause.  And perhaps we could cast the whole thing out of an Ambercrombie and Fitch catalog.

Of course, it'll probably only last ten seasons, though.  Might not be worth the bother.

/also, what's Jacob from LOST up to these day?

Unfortunately, yeah.  Got kind of cookie-cutter halfway through that second season.  Still pretty enjoyable though.  

Odd Bird, while we're on the subject of these types of shows "Dead Like Me" is a must too.  Frigging great show with a lead role for Mandy Patinkin.

Supernatural is a terrific show.  Trying to catch up on Netflix.

There was another show about a man trying to send demons back to hell.  I think it was on UPN or WB way back when.  Anyone got the name?

This is exactly it.

Plot development is derived from conflicts between characters (unless you are surreal). I find very little redeeming in the characters on the characters on that show. The writers are trying to tell me that that their tragic flaw is X or Y -but I see the overall tragic flaw of every character as being overwhelmingly stupid -so I could give a fark about their cheap tragedies.
 
2013-02-27 04:28:15 PM  
Man, that second season of Sons of Anarchy was just truly great television. The rest of the show has just been a huge pile of meh, but I keep watching hoping they can recreate the magic of that 2nd season.

I really should just give it up, since I'm basically hate watching it these days, and derive almost no enjoyment from it.  But that 2nd season makes the short list for best drama tv seasons of the past decade or so.  Outside of the obvious (breaking bad, wire, mad men, shield), it's right up there with any other.

Not gonna watch this new show though, it sounds awful.

I now assume you've already checked out Supernatural.  Because if not, dayum have you got a lot of good tv to catch up on.

It's on Netflix Instant (which is how I got hooked).  First three seasons are great, nothing wrong there, but a little heavy on the monster of the week format.  By the time they hit four they were closing on on the end game for the original five-seasons plot arc and so were really able to take their own mythology out of the box and play with it.  Seasons 6 & 7 were pretty good (especially considering they were without their 5 season arc for the first time).

You have to love a show where someone un-sinks the Titantic because they're farking tired of the song.  The suicidal teddy bear and the unicorn that farts rainbows were pretty good too.

/season 9 is confirmed
//probably will go for a full decade, just 'cause

They can throw in Satanists like "Todd and The Book of Pure Evil" and have the main character perform Fart Rhapsody as a finishing move!

We already had Supernatural and Charmed but hey, it's not a doctor/lawyer/cop/reality show.
 
2013-02-27 04:40:21 PM  
As years go by, and more of these kinds of shows are made, in addition to cop/hospital/lawyer shows, people will realize how truly unique L O S T was.
