You're right, I was just coming back to correct that. I watched Peep Show some years ago, remember thinking it was alright but I don't remember much of the actual show.

Anyway, I get the point and I'll stop griping :mrgreen:

Peep Show is probably the most hit 'n' miss show I've ever seen. I used to watch it every week with my house-mate and there were episodes we were crying laughing, and others we were left po-faced.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia comes close, though.

I never liked tv shows with laugh tracks until I watched the IT Crowd and TBBT, which I both love. I'm much more cautious on Young Sheldon. Actors, including the kid, don't show the same potential for humor. Wait and see.


After watching the first episode, I can only say that my fears were true. The mother doesn't have a tenth of Laurie Metclaf's charisma, the kids are not funny and the father is transparent.

Not a good start.

That's presidential porn for people who fantasise about the US having a real President.

No, that's The West Wing. ;)

By now required disclaimer when mentioning Black List:
I do not claim Blacklist is an amazing show, I watch it for James Spader being James Spader and hamming it up.

Watching Breaking Bad again. Which shows how fuck all of anything there is on TV right now. And I'm impressed with how well written it is. It's not always perfect. There's things which seem far-fetched. But it has a consistency I like about it and doesn't forget the characters. It doesn't just let story arcs just drop and hope no one notices or bluntly and ham-fistedly end them because they realised they're going no where.

Some other shows could really learn from it. Not looking at any recent, very popular show in particular.

I don't get why, in STD, when yer woman is in the healing chamber, she has cloth covering her parts. Wouldn't they just get in the way of the lazer things healing her?

Watching The Tick on Amazon. It's pretty good.

I liked it, I think my favourite moment was the Fight Club parody, with the subtle pixies music going.

Reminds me, The Tick, of old spoof shows and movies like Police Squad, Airplane, and Hot Shots. :lol:
