I watched the Graceland show. Good to see Dutch again, Franco didn't annoy me as much as I expected, show was watchable, but not even close to being a suitable Burn Notice replacement. The two girls leave me cold and the customs agent guy (errr the black guy) seemed to have been randomly inserted in postproduction because he had nothing to do and the preview for the rest of the season did not suggest he ever seems to have anything to do. Twist at the end was highly predictable.
Revolution was also pretty watchable as it wrapped up but it seems to be moving even deeper into the 'the writers like like this villain to much to kill him no matter how ridiculous it is' trap.
I probably should watch Sherlock some day because Elementary came out of nowhere to be probably the best one-hour drama on a big five network. That is also a commentary on how weak the big five network dramas have become, but every episode of Elementary has an intelligent mystery with a good twist, even if Holmes is a smidge too much of a jerk. Johnny Lee Miller is fantastic in the role.
I don't think I ever mentioned how truly lame the finale of How I Met Your Mother was. It was the comedic equivalent of the season one finale of Lost - give the audience a meaningless glimpse of what they have been waiting to see and then close for the summer. Ummm, wow, the mother appears to be a tiny annoying hipster with bad teeth. How about giving her a line or two to convey her personality? And then the setup for wasting six episodes of Lilly being in Italy with the played-out Captain before some random thing happens to send her back except whoops, we are spared that because the final season is going to be an 11 hour version of Before Sunrise. Four to six episodes, maybe, but 22 episodes that take place over a single weekend? There better be a lot of flash-forwards.
Ray Wise REAPER Reunion Interview | Collider
Should put this in the Character Actors thread...but maybe those of you who haven't seen Reaper yet might give it a try. It's on Netflix as well as Fearnet. It really was a fun show and alongside Terriers one that should have been huge.
Reaper was the best! And more Missy Peregrym was never a bad thing. The Loop was another one killed before it's time.
Ed Burns To Play Bugsy Siegel On 'Lost Angels', Robert Knepper Upped To Regular - Deadline.com
Been a while since there has been any news on Frank Darabont's noir gangster show. Heating up lately. Don't like Ed Burns. Never have. Smug, and seems to be a constant presence despite never really having done anything of merit. Oh well...at least the great Robert T-Bag Knepper balances things out.
any new summer series looking good? if so what station dates and times?
