I started re-watching season of Arrested Development in order to prep for the release of the new episodes. I've seen the episodes from seasons 1 and 2 at least half a dozen times, but I've steered clear of re-watching season 3, since it was clearly worse than 1 and 2. However, there is still some absolute gold in season 3. I totally forgot about the scene where Tobias stomps on the miniature village dressed up as a giant mole in front of the Japanese investors.

I watched 15 minutes of 1600 Penn. Horrible. Josh Gad sucks, and his character is unwatchable.

Arrow finally had a new ep on the other night.
Spoiler:
Helena was back, bent for revenge. Crashes the club open, forcing Queen to help her. Laurel's mother thinks her sister may still be alive, while her father thinks her mother is crazy. A good transitional episode, perhaps, depending on what they do with it in the run to close out the season.

Actually, that's not fair to Josh Gad. He was awesome in Book of Mormon on Broadway. But this show is poop

Justified
Spoiler:
What a great season so far - it might rival the first season. Ron Eldard has not aged well, and looks every bit like a junkie Army Vet. Patton Oswalt has been an interesting and welcome addition this season. Interesting to see if he stays on.


If you're not watching this show, you should be. The first three seasons are streaming (legally) in various places. Amazon and maybe Netflix. Check it out.

Bates Motel was really good. Great acting from Norma and Norman. Pretty excited to have something to watch.

Archer was meh. They're turning him into an own-fart-smelling nouveau hippie who doesn't shoot anybody. Hey, what a great idea!

At least the Pam-as-agent angle should be pretty awesome.

I mean Archer is a guy that likes the finer things in life. He likes animals, except crocs and gators. Nothing that has happened this season has been out of character for him. He beat up the Koreans, tried to kill Gillette, ended up having the ricochet bullet of a life time hitting Brett from forever away, took out hitmen from the Mafia(?), had a few run ins with the KGB, and is still awesome.

That is going to be cancelled. Hopefully they can start on the 24 movie that the show help up production on. Even if movie's slated director (Antoine Fuqua) said the film isnt happening anymore.

I see bloggers writing that its starting to become too long since the show went off the air for audiences to care about a film. 24 is a brand name, and in Hollywood that seems to be one of the only things that matters. It would explain why a Miami Vice movie was released 17 years after the final episode aired and cost over $150,000,000 to produce.

I have been watching this but have a love hate relationship with it...I like the premise and how they have "random" things/people develop into being related, but how many times do we have to hear "Jake, stay in the car" and "Where's Jake." Each episode Jake basically runs off and predicts the future and leads everyone to exactly where they need to be, yet every episode the other characters hardly realize that and yell at him for running. And they still act surprised and frustrated when he runs off too.

Hey, look we are in a tough situation that seems impossible to get out of, I need to ignore my kid (Jake stay here/in car) that runs away every second and talk with my back to him...hey where's Jake/Jake get back here...*follows Jake and problem gets solved*...Jake you can't run away like that!

After 2 or 3 episodes, Martin should have just been like - "OK Jake I will just stare at you and follow you for the rest of the series...oh and by the way, what are the lottery numbers?"

I thought that looked good, so I decided I would wait until the end of the season and power through them all at once.

I watched the first 3 episodes over the weekend. I really enjoyed it. Have the 4th one from last night on DVR. Can't wait to see it.

I tried watching "The Bible" and just couldn't get into it.
