largegarlic wrote:I'm four episodes into Arrested Development. So far, I'd say it's been good, but not as laugh-out-loud funny as the original. However, I think it makes up for that in terms of sophistication and the intricacy with which the episodes are constructed. There are so many call-backs to the original series that are worked in more or less seamlessly, and there's the whole thing with showing the same events from the perspective of different characters that pretty innovative for a serialized comedy.


So, I finished Arrested Development and still stick with this overall assessment. There were relatively few truly hilarious moments (although I loved the Gob episodes), but the whole structure designed to fit the new delivery format is pretty brilliant. By the end, I came to see it as a really innovative and clever attempt to design a show perfectly suited to the Netflix/streaming era that was enhanced by often being funny. I saw the original seasons of AD as an incredibly funny show that was enhanced by having intricate plots and difficult to spot running jokes.

Im 8 episodes into the new season of AD. I like it, but it's certainly not the same as the original stuff. Also...

FC44, let me know if you want me to start downloading the stuff. Either as a free user on that file hosting server which will take a while or you can get that 48 hour premium account in which case each episode will take like a minute to d/l.

I watched Rocko's Modern Life somewhat frequently, but have no interest in ever watching it again.

Mad Men...I'm getting anxious about this Bob Benson character. Lots of theories floating around about him:
Spoiler:
1. He's from another ad firm
2. He's an FBI agent looking into Don Draper's original identity (Dick Whitman)
3. Investigative journalist that will uncover the Draper/Whitman thing
4. He's Dick Whitman's son, from the relationship with the hooker.


Very, very interesting subplots there.

Very. I haven't put much thought into him either, just kind of viewed him as a quirky new guy. But there definitely is something more.

On Bob Benson...

Spoiler:
I've thought there's something off about him all season. He just seems too friendly and one-dimensional for a Mad Men character. Even the minor characters (e.g. Dawn, Megan's co-star) have some depth and darkness to them. This makes me think there's going to be some revelation about what Bob's really up to. However, I'm not sure I would go for any theories about him poking into the Don Draper/Dick Whitman thing. It seems like the show has abandoned that as a source of tension in the last season or two (although maybe that just means they're more likely to go back to it).

Top Shot is back. All Stars. No teams, no nomination range. In place of the nomination range, the bottom half of the shooters from the initial challenge get a single shot at a target. 2 farthest from the bullseye are in the challenge.

Wish they would have done this from the start. Now it's all about shooting skills and awesome weapons instead of silly drama and playing favorites. Also prevents people from skating along on a strong team while much more talented shooters go home.

So far, so good. :thumb:

Also, watched the first half of season 5 of the Mentalist. Pretty good so far.

As soon as I realized the Duck Dynasty was not a reality show the more I started to enjoy it. I really like it.

How much is fake? I know the plot lines are mostly just made up situations, but are the people just fake too?

No, I believe the people are rather genuine. It's the situations that are staged.
