Surprisingly the Last TV Show You Saw was Good

The Kitchen Nightmares "Amy's Baking Company" episode is a 10/5.

That episode was insane. They supposedly did a 2nd episode to it just recently, but I've never seen it aired.

 

 

Just finished breaking bad season 4. Popping in season 5 into the PS4 right now. Excited to see how this whole thing ends

Season 5 is great, but the ending is not. Enjoy it and then lower your expectations for the final episode, that way you won't be disappointed.

What's not to like? Walt fakes his death by driving into a hurricane and lives his life out in seclusion in the woods, amongst the bears and other wildlife.

He was once known as Heisenberg but now goes by Heisenbearg...

Heisenberg living life as a sad lumberjack was totally the way to go.

In all honesty, I thought the ending was perfect.

I'll just say everything leading up to the end is great, the last 10 minutes is crap. The whole deal with Walt dying from wildlife just seems too random. Even the raft chase before the waterfall was better than that.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

The biggest problem with Portlandia is that the bar was set so high because the very first skit on the show is the most incredibly funny thing I've ever seen.

Wow the last episode of Parks and Rec punted the show's format out the window.  I thought it became a superior Office, with less camera mugging and more positive energy. But the episode took place April 24, 2014 and then there's a time jump into three years later?

 

Will season 7 be quite different that it'll cause fans to start crying and screaming? But I hope it won't use flashbacks like Brooklyn Nine Nine and other shows.

While they probably will, they don't HAVE to keep to the time jump. And just cause it might be set three years from now, why does that mean the format has to be different now?

That's more mindwarping than Community ever could be. Parks and Rec is a faux-documentary show in the vein of the Office and Modern Family. For them to continue the same format in a 2017 setting means that it is a show within a show with TIME TRAVEL. You know Abed would love to be in Pawnee at this rate.

Gotta say, I was shocked CN allowed Finn to get his arm amputated in Adventure Time. Freaking weird to see him like that. Also quite sad to see the Grass Sword gone so soon.

Something also tells me that there is something more to Finn's dad than what was revealed, if that gut even WAS Finn's dad.

They what?! Has Cartoon Network realized that children AREN'T watching their network anymore, that they'd be so cavalier about Finn not having an arm for a few episodes?

And some Adventure Time talk of the past few eps...

 

 

 

Finn losing his arm has been foreshadowed for literally years. Since everytime you see alternate versions of Finn in the future or a different universe he nearly always had his right arm covered or it was robotic or whatever. The grass sword basically sealed the deal last season that it was coming. Plus it's definitely not the last we'll see of Finn and the grass sword being that he was able to do things not seen before in when he was trying to stop his father from leaving and the flower over his stump does give hints of that.

 

As for Finn's father? Pretty sure that is him considering it goes with the theme of the show of deadbeat dad's who aren't ready to be father's (Marceline, Flame Princess). Plus he was jailed for a reason and Finn already has an adventurer, rightous father; his adopted father.

 

For all the talk of Adventure Time being a stoner cartoon or whatever, the writers do seem to know what they're doing and I wouldn't be surprised if this turns out to be the last season since they keep saying they eventually want to end it.

I guess the foreshadowing works. I have a feeling Finn's arm will be a mutantated arm (well, mutated further than it originally was pre-amputation).

As for Finn's dad, Finn assumed it was his dad because he was humanoid, but Martin never really confirmed it and seemed to go along with it just so he could go free. He actually reminds me a lot of Magic Man.

As for the series ending, it is a possibility. Though I believe one of the major signs will be Betty finally curing Simon of the Ice King once and for all.

Gonna bump this for Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey. Not as good as the original(practically perfect), but a great follow-up.

Agreed, but I'm a little biased when it comes to Sagan.  The whiz-bang CGI in this newest iteration should do much to hook the youngsters this is meant to inspire.  Not a show for those with a decent science education (which I received BECAUSE of the original, so this stuff works!), but I could listen to DeGrasse Tyson speak all day.  I also revel in the subtle and not-so-subtle jabs at creationists, climate change deniers, misogynists, and anti-intellectuals woven into the script.  I really wonder if Rupert Murdoch watches this or if he's heard complaints from his cronies about its content.

I caught Season 1 of Hannibal at the suggestion of a CAG a few pages back in this thread when it came available for free viewing on Amazon Prime.  There is some pretty gruesome stuff I can't believe gets shown on network television.  Will Graham's psychology (and those who want to use him or study him to their own ends) makes the show.  Hannibal is a smooth operator, for sure, and without spoiling too much, I'm impressed with his long-term planning. 

 

Also, for Amazon Prime members, catch Orphan Black if you can.  Only the first season is a freebie, but I liked it well enough to buy the second (current) season pass.  It's really a mystery/thriller, with a science fiction.  The lead actress plays multiple roles.  Watch the show to find out why.  And since this is a video game website, the actor (Michael Mando) that plays the main character's drug-dealing boyfriend was the character model and voice of Vaas in Far Cry 3.

Funny you mention these shows, as they are also the last things I started watching streaming.

Orphan Black is phenomenal. I ripped through for the first season in a week before season 2 started on TV, so I'm watching if every week now. It had serious "Heroes" potential, because season 2 had a lot to live up to and it could have gotten really messy. Luckily, it's been just as strong. Highest recommendation I can make.

I'm almost done with Hannibal's first season and I totally agree, this show is just as gruesome, if not more so, than Dexter... And it's on network TV!

Unfortunately I'll have to wait for season 2 to stream now but it's also a pretty great show if you don't mind the gore or organs being shown repeatedly.

A week late, but yeah Hannibal season 2 and the finale were amazing. I Always enjoy the show makes you think you know what's going to happen or thinks you're ready and instead pulls the rug from under. Season 2 also upped the ante on gore though.

Not very good, but Very entertaining.

Last few shows I watched:

Power Rangers RPM - My favorite season. Has some problems but is still excellent overall.

Power Rangers Samurai - Nowhere near as good as RPM, but after a rocky start it got better. About as good as Lightspeed Rescue.

Power Rangers Megaforce - Because they condesned two seasons of Sentai in this, everything is rushed like hell. Also, the cast is somehow even blander than MMPR's initial cast.

90's X-Men cartoon - The animation is OK at best, the violence is sanitized, and some of the plots don't make sense, but the voice cast excels so well that it makes things work. Still the best versions of Rogue and Gambit brought to TV.

Ben 10 Ultimate Alien - Honestly, I think thisight be my favorite of the Ben 10 series. The Ultimate forms were awful, but the characters were well written and worked well together.

Street Fighter (90's cartoon) - The animation had some decent points, but it got worse overall. The story was actually pretty decent and the voice cast was excellent. Better than the Mortal Kombat cartoon.

Whose Line is it Anyway? - Still awesome.

Watched some more 24. Jack Bauer is so fun to watch, and I was definitely scared for Sarah Walker. Was I supposed to laugh when daughter of Terrorist got run over by a bus?

Just finished up Tron: Uprising that was on Disney XD from 2012 - 2013.  19 episodes in all, including a intro episode for the main character.

 

Was a lot better than I expected it to be and I'm sorry it isn't likely to get a second season.   It was a well-done bridge between Tron and Tron Legacy with some side story work.  Characters were well-done (Bruce Boxleitner for Tron, plus Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore and others), good sound track, Aeon Flux-style animation, mature story content.

 

A second season was in the works towards the end of Season 1, though nothing about that has moved forward.

In the same way Mortal Kombat 2 and Battlefield Earth are terrible movies, but a fun romp.

I take it you don't believe what you're watching. On the contrary I do believe ancient aliens came here. Sometimes the show goes a little too far though.

Since it's now summer and no new shows air on broadcast television, I've been trying to catch up on Adventure Time and Regular Show. I also watch Cosmos (season/series finale tonight!) and American Ninja Warrior every week. I have lots of other TV shows and movies I want to get through too.

Man, I dig the hell out of the Mordecai's lovelife storyline. The most I've ever been invested in any TV relationship.
