American TV, you are forgiven (in Off-topic)

Mythology April 13 2010 7:41 PM EDT

For what you did to Heroes, for making more than three 24s, for canceling firefly.

After finally watching all of BSG, all is truly forgiven.

I used to love the film as a kid, specially the first 5 minutes, The TV series lived up to and far surpassed the film, loved every episode, probably the best show I've ever seen by far. If I was American I'd be proud my country made this, and as a Brit, I thank you.

Just wait till you see Glee!

Gah you just had to go and mention Firefly didn't you? I would have agreed completely until I heard you mention the F word and now all I can think about is how I wish it was still going.

With regards to a current chatmail, BSG = Battle Star Galactica.


Thing with firefly, if they hadnt canceled it, would he have made Serenity? I really like Serenity too, oozes watch-ability.

You are a year behind my friend.

However, I just recently rewatched the series as well as I had been showing it to a couple friends. Enjoyed it just as much as the first time.

Mythology April 14 2010 4:05 AM EDT

Aye I watched the first three seasons and a half, then rewatched the whole lot just recently and all of season four this time :)

So you mean, you actually *liked* the last 4-5 episodes of BSG ?

AdminG Beee April 14 2010 5:50 AM EDT

I guess it takes all kinds. I managed to struggle through the first couple of episodes and then binned it. I guess after being blown away with the original BSG, anything after was just not going to be good enough. As a young kid I wanted to be Lieutenant Starbuck :)

As for Glee, isn't it chick flick material? Wifey and daughter #1 watch it and think it's "ok". I occasionally overhear the cheesy singalong music whilst doing something else around the house and shudder... In fairness I've not actually watched an episode.

First two seasons were epic. The third devolved into a crappy live triangle.

We couldn't be bothered to even finish watching the last series.

You should watch Superantural instead. ;) I can't recommend it highly enough!

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 14 2010 1:13 PM EDT

Er that should be 'love' triangle. ;)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 14 2010 1:14 PM EDT

As for Firefly (Grrr stupid TV companies).

What's the newes series to be picked up?

Why a Sci-fi Space Western.... /sigh

QBJohnnywas April 14 2010 1:19 PM EDT

Firefly and BSG - the reason DVD box-sets were invented.

Lochnivar April 14 2010 1:33 PM EDT

all this aside.... I am far from ready to forgive American TV...

Springer, Wife Swap, 16 & Pregnant, the Hills...

American TV is destroying civilization!

ScY April 14 2010 1:40 PM EDT

You forgot Jersey Shore: Miami.

Nuff said.

TV blows.

Lochnivar April 14 2010 2:12 PM EDT

You forgot Jersey Shore: Miami.

Didn't forget it, I just couldn't physically force myself to type the name of that wretched trash...

Oh, incidentally, no love for Babylon 5 in this thread?

ScY April 14 2010 2:19 PM EDT

Or cougar town...

IMO in scream 4 they REALLY need to kill Courtney cox. Like she has to die so bad...that would ALMOST make up for her not dying in the first 3 films........

SimplyNic April 14 2010 3:16 PM EDT

Ya'll omitted some of the greater of shows.

House, Ghost Hunters, Myth busters, *Spongebob, *Fairly Oddparents, (*Yes, I openly admit to liking those shows) Family Guy and the Simpsons. Do they get no love either? -Tear-

For a Canadian show: Trailer Park Boys.
