    Default Random TV Show Thoughts

    Didn't see a thread specifically for TV shows.

    If they'd ended the office around Season 5 it would've been one of the best shows of all time. Change my mind.

    Would you rather have had 4 years of Trump or the Office still be on the air and you HAD to watch it? Change your mind? I'll break your mind.

    I really need to keep watching The Office.

    I know that people said Steve Carrell leaving was a major turning point but I think that was Season 7 or something.

    There is too much shit on TV/streaming nowadays. Either there is stuff that looks interesting but I don't feel like I have time to commit to watching a lot of seasons; or there's just a lot to select from and I can't tell very easily what is worth the effort. Or I start watching something, like it, and then it gets canceled. It's almost easily to watch a series five years after it ends.

    I think season 9 is better than its reputation, but season 8 is rough. He did well enough as the villain in Mannequin, but I didn't particularly find James Spader on the Office (which is during that season).

    I'm watching Ramna 1/2, I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality of this 1980s anime. I've had a guilty pleasure for all sorts of old shows lately. Recently I finished Blossom-I really love the the main character herself. Both her and Six are ENFPs I think, but I think Blossom is a triple frustration tritype and Six a free spirit tritype so they present really differently. This show was ahead of it's time, it had a lot of mature themes that were presented as a normal part of life that weren't sugarcoated nor obnoxious. Blossom is basically Daria as an extrovert. I also really like I Love Lucy, it has a good reputation but I didn't expect it to be as hilarious as it was. It was funny when the guys trolled Lucy by making her think there's a fire and then they plan to go in and save her, but before they can go in their plans are foiled.

    But then we wouldn't have Robert California.

    It did get too absurd later on, and Michael's void was too large to fill.

    You're another Robert California fan?

    I consider his season the weakest of the series, except for maybe season 1. I think the show follows a similar trajectory to Parks and Rec (or the Simpsons, for that matter) where it took until season 3 to really find itself.

    Early seasons of comedy show tend to be weak because they seem a little too "grounded" to be good at being funny.

    Also it's hilarious to me that Bart Simpson was considered controversial at the time in those first two seasons (the early 90s were truly a different time). It's interesting, he used to be kind of the central character, and then the focus shifted to Homer (which may have started in season 3).

    Why didnt Sheridan at any point after coming back from Babylon 4 warn Londo what he was getting into?

    Santa Clarita Diet is hands-down the most hilarious tv show I've ever watched. I'm actually glad they ended it after 3 seasons instead of milking it till it got bad.

    And I also loved iZombie. It was the first tv show that made me consider what a human brain tastes like.

    Season 2 of Star Trek TNG is better than most people think.
