    The Tara storyline was amazingly dumb and Alcide's death was totally pointless, but I've quite enjoyed most of this season. It's actually made me hate Bill a little bit less. Only a little bit though. #TeamEric
    This pretty much sums it up for me. Tara's storyline was pretty much pointless. Glad it's done with.

    well, the True Blood finale was beyond disappointing.....to no one's surprise.

    although I'm pretty sure I still hate the Dexter finale more.

    Bwah ha ha...

    Leftovers was unbelievable. Just a great show. Hope they put out a soundtrack so I can sit in the darkness and listen to it. So wonderfully sad and depressing. But in a good way.

    ‘The Leftovers’: Sometimes You Have to Pretend it Didn’t Happen

    But what’s troubling about ‘The Garveys at Their Best,’ then, is the heavy-handedness of how it delivers some of the information to the audience; the little moments underlining the tragedies to come feel too strained, too self-aware, or too extreme at times.

    This isn’t necessarily a dire complaint; most of what The Leftovers has presented this season has certainly been on the extreme side of somber and grief-stricken, with small bits of levity and humor thrown in on occasion. And for those who’re attuned to appreciate those elements in the amounts they’re doled out week after week, the show has been emotionally effective and lyrically beautiful in ways even some of the best shows on television struggle to achieve.
    This is about the fairest most 'gets it' review of the show I have read. Emotionally effective and lyrically beautiful. Awesome.

    Yep the finale of Trueblood was boring, except for the Erik and Pam scenes.

    Anyone else watching The Knick? It's a very odd show. Almost an ANTI-drama. Everything is presented clinically. No antagonist or protagonist to speak of really. And it truly seems like if you needed surgery you were well and truly f'd. The doctors perform 'procedures' which are more like experiments with a 'well, it would have gone the same way if we did nothing approach', and outside of SPOILERS Max Headroom, who snuffed it early in the first episode, they have a lazy, dismissive attitude towards the results. It's not unwatchable, but I got to the end of episode 3 and was wondering WHY I am still going to watch. Soderbergh really seems to be uninterested in actually entertaining people.

    this scene and Bill's death were the only good parts.

    why did it take them the whole season to figure out they would kill the japanese cowboy?

    can't believe I forced myself to get through the whole final season
