Title: The Ultimate TV Thread... of, uhhh... Doom...
Post by: SomethingApt on June 03, 2005, 10:25:28 pm
lalala... here we post what TV shows we're watching / have watched and add our thoughts on them and stuff.

okey... recently watched:

Veronica Mars (Season 1): Absolutely fan-bloody-tastic show, only been on in the US... try to download some episodes. it's about a girl in high-school who works as a private-eye and solves crimes and stuff, i know that makes it sound completely shit but it's actually fucking good and the main plot progresses really rapidly and it constantly makes you think.

Lost (Season 1): Ended recently (as did Veronica Mars), i already know that quite a few people here were watching it. words can't really describe how good it is.

24 (Season 4): a lot better than season 3 but ended crappily.

Scrubs (Season 4): ended a few weeks ago... i'm a Scrubs fanatic, have every single episode on my hardrive... great stuffs.

The OC (season 2): avoid at all costs... big pile of steaming shit... i watched every episode waiting for something interesting to happen... never did.

EDIT: better add American Dad (hey, that rhymes ;D)... cartoon by the makers of Family Guy, absolutely hysterical... first 4 episodes are widely available via bittorrent.

Excellent idea. :P Spoilers may lurk ahead, so proceed with caution. I'll try to use the white text feature for potentially spoilery material.

Lost (Season 1): OMG, the hatch is open! and we've seen like 5% of the monster. And we know it is some kind of security system. Awesome show, but what I fear is what I dub the "X-Files-Effect". The closer the X-Files got to "the truth", the crappier the show became. I hope it doesn't happen with Lost.

Numb3rs (Season 1): Just picked it up because it had some 1337 in it's title. Math genius helps his FBI brother to solve crimes. Sounds cheap, but the show is really great. Fast-paced FBI investigation action plus interesting geek math gibberish. Also great main characters.

CSI. The season finale. Quentin Tarantino. Brilliance. He made the characters shine like fucking diamonds.

CSI New York. I like that it's a tad darker than the other CSI series with all those problem laden characters. "Uh, my wife died in 9/11!" - "I'm an orphan!"...

They didn't renew Carnivale for a third season. *shakes fist*

And, of course, Family Guy and American Dad...

Lost (Season 1): Ended recently (as did Veronica Mars), i already know that quite a few people here were watching it. words can't really describe how good it is.

Actually, they can. The words needed are "promising", "raised", "Exodus", "it", "beginning", "lost", "its", "but", "season", "interest","much", "my", "potential", "really", "ending", "again", "throughout", "was", "the", "of", "though" and "in".

These can then be used to form the sentences

"It was really promising in the beginning, but it lost much of its potential throughout the season. The season ending, Exodus, raised my interest again, though."

Which pretty much sums it up.

The long version:

The first couple of episodes really worked me up, but then they turned it from a nice little horror concept to some sort of drama. Around episode 10, I think, they manage to revitalize it a bit, and the plot with Ethan and the baby was interesting, and so was the Rosseau subplot (Saheds trip through the jungle). The Locke-Boone coupling, and their exploits, were also slightly interesting. Still, after Ethan and Rosseau, the show starts losing my interest, and by the time they reach episode 20, I'm actually a week or so behind in watching the episodes. After episode 21, I go for some weeks without watching the show, until I went through episodes 22-25 in two settings this week.

Oh, and Srubs. You GOT to love Scrubs. Even though our belowed Dr. Dorian is a really big wuss at times, and I feel sorry for him (recently watched the episode were Elliot, after being told by this other girl that the right guy was "the guy who was there for you", decided to drop her boyfriend, who's in New Zealand, and go for JD instead. They have sex, and as Elliot is about to leave, the boyfriend shows up).

Oh, and did you know that according to several medical people, Scrubs might be the most realistic hospital series around?

One of the best series around, in my opinion, is Farscape. Sure, it's over, but it was really, really, really great. It deserves an honourable mention in any thread about TV series...

I don't want this thread to die off, so I'll say something controversial:

I liked the Enterprise series finale.

The symbolism alone that the last episode of the show is basically the subplot of a TNG episode says it all. And Archer's speech being the intro of TOS and TNG was a nice idea. A worthy ending for a flawed show which nevertheless had it's moments.

My TV has only one channel: the videogame channel. There's always some good show on it, sometimes it's little pixelly people running around with a black background, other times there are spaceships or green-clad elves. It's amazing.

So no, I don't watch TV. It's 99% garbage. Sometimes I pass by when mom watches, and it's always the same stuff:
1. A commercial for a movie. Cars flying through the air (whilst on fire naturally), stiff, robotic star actors with serious-looking faces cranking out one-liners that'd make even Duke Nukem raise an eyebrow, guns, screaming, and of course some sex and "mature content" (read: content which's maturity is inversely proportional to its rating) thrown in for good measure. It's always the same stuff in these commercials. Always.
2. A commercial for anything else, based on either sex, gender stereotypes or downright in-your-face innuendo. Schampoo, shaving utilities, candy bars, even fricking ice cream. Nothing is safe from being advertized by sensual female voices that scream "yes" (that's happened in two so far, one for schampoo and one for icecream).
3. It's a comedy movie or series. Every other joke is based on innuendo.

I also saw a commercial for a magazine, which must be fake. It just has to be. It advertized itself like a porn mag with articles about the Columbine high school murders, exclusive pictures of actors not wearing clothes and other things I'm actaully too embarrased to say. This commercial aired right in the middle of the day and promoted the most disgusting of things, objectified women and cried outright that men are pigs, in fact it was its main selling point as its target audience was men. If this commercial was fake, it was an incredibly tasteless joke. It was not fake, all I have to say is: ".........."

Sure, there are good stuff on TV. Monkey business on Animal Planet, where a park saves and takes care of abused chimpanzees and lets them live new, natural lives in relative freedom. And Big cat diary, where we follow the lions, cheetahs and leopards of the Masaii mara, where the camera teams are careful not to disturb the animals. And Jeopardy with Magnus Härenstam, always good stuff. Hm... nope, that's it. Apart from those shows I prefer to stick with my videogame channel.

And now you may commence rolling your eyes at me, just because I've never walked past the TV without seeing either a half-naked woman or a man with a gun. :p

Edit: I forgot "reality shows" and their commercials, but you don't even want to get me started on them, so you can image what I'd say about them.

myeh, all the best tv shows come out on DVD anyway  :P

if I'm just vegetating infront of the tele i just usually flick between the music channels and the history channels but thats only when I'm at my parents house. In my house we dont have cable so I almost never watch TV shows. We're currently sort of watching big brother with some regularity in the house atm pretty much just to take the piss out of it.

Post by: Bates on June 15, 2005, 09:49:16 pm
Double post action!

Just got around reading Spiff's post, which provoked some thoughts. As a "fan" of a few TV series I'd somewhat disagree and say the garbage level is pretty much constant in any media, whether it's TV (series), movies, books or games. Great stories, interesting characters and creative ideas are hard to find in any media, but they are out there.
Granted, there's much trash on TV, but there's an equal percentage of bad games with a nonexistent story, shallow characters, endless level grinding or sex where it isn't needed (like in racing games...). Same goes with books. I found Angels & Demons quite amusing and had the stupid idea to read Dan Brown's other books. It's like junk food, but for your brain.

Maybe I'm spoiled because of economics studies, but I believe that most good and unique ideas for any kind of entertainment also become a commercial success... sooner or later. As Laser pointed out in the gaming monthly thread it's the companies - this also goes for TV and movies - who aren't open to new ideas or not willing to take risks; that's why there's so much trash. But as long as there are people who watch that...

What I like about good TV shows is that they have to balance commercial aspects (e.g. violence, sex) to keep the masses interested and a deeper level of interpretation for people who watch them actively. Lost for example manages this balance perfectly.

And I love jokes based on innuendo.  ;D

Post by: Spiff on June 15, 2005, 10:25:29 pm
Well, that post of mine was rather bitter and ranty, sorry. :P I excaggerated, but still believe that we're heading downhill faster and faster nowadays. I agree that there's garbage in every media of course, it's the same with games.

But what about us people who prefer entertainment not based on neither mindless violence nor sex? Those who enjoy a good story without being interrupted by people getting killed, or excercises in further driving the gender sterotypes into the ground? There's hardly anything, at least not anything big or well-known, for those who don't want to watch TV for the purpose of being sickened by it. Tonari no Totoro has got to be one of the best movies I've seen in my life, and most definitely had nothing so-called "mature". Nintendo games also always manage to hit the spot with me... I suppose I'm a hypocrite for making Iji, a game where you shoot aliens, but I'd like to think that there's a difference between cartoony games and meticulously crafted photo-realistic depictions of people getting shot for the sake of grossing out the audience.

On the TV right now there's a reality show about a couple of supermodels fighting to be the cover girl of a magazine in a skimpy swimsuit. I feel sorry for them, brainless slaves to the gender oppression and further pig-ification of mankind.  But alas, for every piece of trash TV show there's most probably something good and enjoyable. Those shows hardly ever make it onto the TV though; they don't attract the same number of viewers. So while the good stuff is out there, like with all media, it's not always easy to find it.

Everyone must have beer or some other alcohol drink.

Everyone must drink if:
MacGyver-theme is played
An explosion is seen
MacGyver Finds something
MacGyver invents something
Someone asks "What are you doing Mac?"
MacGyver Explains what he's doing
MacGyver tells how substances react with each other
Someone says MacGyver/Mac
Someone says phoenix-foundation
MacGyver moralizes(?)
MacGyver touches his mullet
MacGyver hits a bad guy
MacGyver uses knife
MacGyver says: "We need a diversion!"
It appears that MacGyver has had a relationship with a woman.
Bad guys sound like idiots.
Timer/bomb/wires are shown.
Extra drinking is not forbidden.

The following post may contain mild spoilers about the tv series Smallville.

I barely remember. All the plotlines I didn't like came together - the Lana-witch-thing, Jason and his mother, somehow the crystals triggered a meteor shower onto Smallville (again). At the end Clark found himself in the Arctic. Maybe the writer should've put up a sign "Build Fortress Of Solitude here" to make it more obvious. Lois, after a car accident (LOL), was looking across a devastated Smallville. Nice scene. Curtain. And I think Bo Duke was allegedly hit by a meteor. But my bet is he'll get killed midseason 5.

Drink when:

Anyone speaks chinese
Simon and River are innapropriate
Inara shoots mal down
Book knows something he shouldnt
Mal punches someone
Jayne is shooting people
Wash talks to himself

aaah theres more but I cant remember - worth a try sometime

Rise and shine, TV thread!

The new TV season begins around now... Yesterday Fox aired new episodes of Family Guy, American Dad and Simpsons. That's two absolutely awesome shows and one mildly entertaining filler ( :P) in a row!

Also prepare for the 21st, when the new season of Lost starts!

Has anyone watched the latest Stargate SG-1 (the episode somewhat *cough* inspired by Last Samurai)? William B. Davis (aka Cigarette Smoking Man, aka Smallville Mayor) as an Ori-Prior! It doesn't get creepier than that!

Oh, yeah, that was what I was supposed to do. Watch Firefly.

And I've gone and started watching Galactica instead.

I've only ever seen one episode of the remade BSG and it was wicked-cool.

also, I've only ever watched 12 episodes of lost and it too is awesome.

CAn't wait for Serentiy, peeing my pants in anticipation as we speak.

I'm almost a celebrity!

My dad's second cousin (which would make her something like my third or fourth) is on the new season of Survivor. Her name's Amy, she's from Massachusetts, and she has blonde hair. So if any of you like that reality show stuff (ewww...) you know who to root for.  :P

(Note: my own father hasn't ever actually met her, but my grandparents have. She's like my grandma's sister's niece or something).

Oh, cool!

I'm almost a celebrity as well. My uncle is one of the worlds best model glideplane fliers! No, really. It's true!

Now, of course, model planes aren't the worlds most popular sport, sadly.

But he's been on national TV! I think. National papers, at least. Or possibly just a regional one...

My second cousin has been on national TV, though, that's for sure. He's scary. He's like, fairly intelligent, quite practical, and with info in his head that could be used to, say, blow up half the city of New York. He's scary. Never trust anybody who knows too much about technology.

Indeed, never trust anybody. Except me. I am to be trusted one hundred percent. I'm not going to stab you in the back for money, or fame, or just because I feel like it. No, really. I won't!
