Thanks for the heads up on Grandma's House, WATMM. Never heard of Simon Amstell before, but he's hilarious, despite his irritating appearance and demeanor.

 

Also, this week's MAD MEN. :emotawesomepm9:

Recently:

 

Awake - It was really good but they fucking cancelled it and what was clearly meant to be a 2 season show got abruptly FUCK YOU ended.

 

Touch - dat jack bauer whisper - dunno, its kinda annoying but enjoyable in certain places, mostly meh tho.

 

Continuum - Just started, actually really liked the first episode, has promise.

 

Supernatural - I marathoned the entire 7 seasons in about a month, is that even possible? anyway - im now a fanboy, fml

Revisiting the older seasons of Breaking Bad in preparation for next month... It's just making me love the show even more, going back knowing what happens later on makes me realize they really did the development of each character brilliantly.

 

Re-watching S1 of the X-Files, and my god, Space is an absolutely terrible episode.

 

Haha, I've been progressively working my way through the X-files as well, and yeah that episode was just stupid.. wasn't it ironically also the highest budget episode for the season?

yeah, it was supposed to be a cheap episode using NASA stock footage but they blew the budget on the mission control set or something, lol

 

The same thing happened with Ice, but Ice was fantastic.

Ya, I'm on season 4 and i've been watchin it for a few weeks. The acting is shit and the characters piss me off, but the story has me hooked for some reason.

Jin a 2009 Japanese time travel drama. A doctor in modern times falls down some stairs and somehow time slips into the Edo period where he invents Penicillin in the wrong century and does all kinds of things to change the future, which makes a photograph he carries with him change.

 

Its the most endearing show I ever watched. There is a Korean remake called Dr Jin which I might try next but I find it hard to find a K-drama I can get into so far, anyone have good K-drama suggestion?

 

someone should pin this thread

rewatching Millennium, season 1 is a little hokey and rough. Lets just be honest, it's badly written and Chris Carter's hackish fingerprints are all over it. However season 2 is phenomenal, its probably my favorite season of any tv show ever.

they touch on so many subjects in this season, and for a show done in 1995 it's extremely ahead of it's time. Much more polished and refined than the X-files (it's a spinoff in case anybody has no idea what im talking about)

 

Frank Black and Peter Watts (before his role as Locke in lost) have such a great dynamic, love this show

 

if anybody here is a Twin Peaks fan and you haven't found a show since (besides perhaps Carnival) that channels the same weird energy and suspense, you have to check out Millennium. It's a little more straight forward than either of those, but equally as strange, unsettling and atmospheric.

That season finale of Millennium featuring Patti Smith's Horses in an apocalyptic vision made a pretty big impression on my teenage self. I don't remember what season that was, and probably haven't seen it since... maybe I should.

season 2 season 2 season 2!

 

you mean this

yeah its a little dated now, very mid 90s oliver stone but for a FOx TV show this shit was cutting edge, dark and extremely artsy for the network programming of that era. I think the girl who plays Laura Means is such a good actress that it still works when you watch it now, but yeah seeing this at 16 really effected me too.

Would it be acceptable to skip straight into season 2 then?

 

kinda i mean i would probably watch the end of Season 1 first, starting with the first appearance of Lucy Butler who is an extremely awesome character.

 

 

Lamentation from Season 1 is a great starting point and then it leads seamlessly into Season 2.

Spoiler

 

 

only problem with starting there is that Bletcher, a major character gets killed off in this episode so the emotional weight is somewhat missing if you leap right into it, great thing about millennium is they have the balls to kill off major characters

i'm working through the x files now. i'm going to move on to millenium after that. i remember being scared shitless by a few episodes of that show at some point in the late 90's. there were some really disturbing and effective apocalyptic pieces of writing. or at least i remember it being effective. x files so far is more hokey, although it seems to hit a stride in the light hearted stand alone episodes.
