Unsolicited commentary and thoughts


It has occurred to me that I’ve never kept a list of tv shows I watch and finish. So, let’s start.

Battlestar Galactica (2004) Really not happy with the way the show ended. It’s hard to recommend the show to people because of that, but it’s still worth a watch, just not something easy to recommend.

The Wire I’m with the majority on this and consider The Wire to be an excellent show. You’ll find enough praise from all the other people who claim it to be the best television show ever, so I’ll leave it at that.

Party Down Notable for being created by Rob Thomas, the same person behind Veronica Mars. Honestly I don’t remember much of this show anymore, but I do remember enjoying it.

Eastbound and Down You’ll find yourself surprised to be rooting for such an asshole.

Coupling (UK) I loved this show. There’s a lot of moments where I found myself laughing so hard I had to rewind just to hear the joke again. One of the key characters disappears in the last season, which I was kind of sad about, but the replacement does an admirable job.

Fawlty Towers Meh. I was expecting this to be a lot better with all the praise and recognition it receives, but I found it hard to relate with John Cleese’s characters. A few of the episodes were excellent, but a lot of them were just whatever.

Arrested Development Probably not fair to have it on here since it’s a rewatch, but who cares. It’s amazing, and I caught so many more jokes this time around. I’m already tempted to watch it again. I should just have it in continual rotation in my schedule.
