stop trying to make low winter sun "happen"
 
2013-10-06 01:59:25 PM
They haven't canceled that yet?

I refuse to watch it unless it gets picked up for another season.
 
2013-10-06 02:06:03 PM
I might need to watch the last two episodes of Breaking Bad again.

The all of it was a dream angle didn't occur to me first.  Because if Norm McDonald tells me it might be a dream, who am I to doubt it?

You know, I love me some Mark Strong. He's my favorite actor, I want to bear his children, so on and so forth. I was so excited when Low Winter Sun was announced, knowing that I'd get a fresh hour of Mark Strong every week.

After sticking it out for five episodes, I deleted it from my DVR's to do list. So boring. Such crappy dialogue. When it shows up on Netflix, maybe I'll try it again for background noise/eye candy while I'm folding laundry or something.

But it just wasn't very good.
 
2013-10-06 03:32:06 PM
I made it about four episodes.

Low Winter Sun aka what AMC used to screw up Breaking Bad's West Coast start time with.

Won't be watching.
 
2013-10-06 04:24:28 PM
It's an OK show but it is slower than a special-ed class.
 
2013-10-06 04:40:01 PM
That show seems like a chore to watch.

You should have Comcast. Their HD feed for AMC is east coast, so Breaking Bad started at 6 PM.

barely two.

OTOH, when I saw the finale was tonight,  I've been hoping for a greenlit thread just for laughs and scorn and snark.
fark made me.

Yeah, they're definitely pushing that show. But who could blame them, BB's gone, Mad Men can't be too much longer for this world, then there's just Walking Dead (can't wait for Halloween Horror Night!). That's why they were hocking BB cufflinks during Talking Bad. I thought I was watching QVC.

Of course they still have Comic Book Men, 4 unlikable assholes pretending to run a comic book store.

Well yeah, there's that. I'll give it a shot of course but can he carry a show? I think anyone expecting the same vibe as BB will be disappointed.
 
2013-10-06 05:20:27 PM
I haven't watched a single episode of the current season of Boardwalk Empire. I have been saving it for the post-BB slump.

Gee, what would you base that on?
 
2013-10-06 07:03:50 PM
I read somewhere that AMC had a problem, for the very first time, with something they did on the upcoming season of WD (I'm guessing they finally crossed the line on gore) but the producers managed to convince them to let them do it anyway. Could just be BS, though.


Mugato: Of course they still have Comic Book Men, 4 unlikable assholes pretending to run a comic book store.


As a comics fan I tried watching that but, ugh. Awful. Just awful. Same for that toy collector show.

They did talk Matthew Weiner into letting them do the same split season thing for the final season of Mad Men next year, so they'll squeeze another year out of that, but, yeah, they better find another hit show soon.

Same here, I dig the comics and the memorabilia but everyone's such a dick and the show has that same thing that every "reality" show has, it's completely staged and directed, forget it.

You should have Comcast.


Why didn't you just say "you should have angry spiders for underwear"?
 
2013-10-06 08:39:17 PM
While Low Winter Sun may be the suckiest, most pretentious "we are being serious here" show on TV, the biggest mistake AMC made with its marketing was planting that first Breaking Bad next-on like thirty minutes into Low Winter Sun's pilot. That pilot could have been the greatest pilot in history, but all I wanted to see was scenes from the next Breaking Bad episode. I resented AMC for making me watch it for so long, and by extension resented the show itself.

Never took a second glance at it.

Seriously. If they weren't basically a monopoly where I live I'd dump those gouging bastards in a heartbeat.

Didn't get through the first episode.
Jim Cantore lookalike cop kills a cop and is given the task of investigating the crime.

I assembled my own PC over the last week.  I was putting it through its paces with some gaming.  That gaming might have to continue.

Quelle dommage.

For those who have missed what's been happening on Low Winter Sun, allow me to recap:

"Frank. Frank! Katia? Katia? Skelos. Frank. Skelos. Katia. Katia. Katia. Chaldean. Frank! Frank! Detective Mills & Agnew. Katia. Katia. Katia. Skelos. Frank. Katia. Katia. Mills. Agnew. Agnew. Mills. Frank. Katia. Chaldean. Skelos. Katia. Katia? Katia!" THUD.

Now, imagine that dialogue on a show that has a lighting budget of $0.00, and you've got Low Winter Sun.

/slogged through every episode.
 
2013-10-06 09:14:37 PM
Couldn't make it through two episodes.  I get the whole "anti-hero" thing, but everyone on that show is just an uninteresting asshole.

What happened to Huell?

Some serious shenanigans.

Seriously, though, I think Low Winter Sun will be remembered in pop culture history as a metaphor for trying and dramatically failing to latch on to a much more successful and popular thing.

It seems to be trying to fuse Mad Men's pacing and sense of melancholy with Breaking Bad's exploration of someone going bad.  The fact is, though, those are very different shows, and they don't have either Jon Hamm or Bryan Cranston in their cast.
 
2013-10-06 09:35:22 PM
I'll watch... cause this football game is turning out to be a snoozefest.

And it doesn't start out with someone going bad, or someone that will go bad.  It starts out with two murderers killing a dude.  And then we're supposed to like one of them, and not like the other.

I should be revered for how reviled I am. Or vice versa. Can't remember.

Yes it was all a dream. And Todd was an undercover FBI agent. And Jesse didn't aim at Gale. And Hank was reading leaves of Grass on his own toilet.

What if everything that happened after Walter closed his eyes to pray was basically Walter White's fevered dream as he succumbed to cancer in the car?

It wasn't.

In a very interesting argument laid out on Twitter...

Just be glad we're not living in an alternate universe where Vince Gilligan pulled a Terrance and Phillip on us and replaced the last episode of Breaking Bad with that.

/though admittedly, the internet reaction would have been amazing
 
2013-10-07 12:43:20 AM
Pretty good finale, but some of these plot points should have taken quicker to get to. The whole Skelos vs. scrub crew was a complete waste of time. Reverend Lowdown has a lot of potential, too bad they fumbled him all season.

Also, it makes virtually no sense to bring this show back.

I'll just be waiting for another three years or so for the return of the Venture Bros.

The Venture Bros. is like sex. I really enjoy it when I am getting it, but the wait until I can have more is intolerable.
