Yeah, I gotta agree with Jamm. I've watched the show in its entirety, and there have been some bad seasons of course, but I thought that was a great ending. Despite the last few seasons not being great, I'm kind of sad to see the show end.

We need this thread. Justified is on tonight (I think?) ...

The Black List isn't though, because of the Winter Olympics. Another reason to boycott!

True Detective is certainly living up to its hype, at least for me.

New Girl is easily the funniest sitcom out there. Shoutouts to Brooklyn Nine Nine and of course Parks and Rec.

True Detective is unreal. McConaughey kills it week in, week out and Harrelson isn't far behind. That last scene of "Who Goes There" was incredible.

Crazy ending to Shameless this week. They always seem to throw you a shocking ending when you least expect it.

I watched most of the first season of New Girl and then gave up because I thought it was dire and trying way too hard. I caught a more recent episode on TV the other day and man, it has improved so much. I've been catching up on more since and I'm not sure I'd say it's the funniest show on at the moment (but then again, I can't think of an alternative off the top of my head) it's definitely up there. Has great timing especially, something I feel overrated shows like The Big Band Theory doesn't have.

Bill Burr was in an episode I watched recently, too. I love that guy!

I just love the sort of manic/screwball type of comedy the show has taken too. The cast all have great chemistry together and as you said, great timing. For me, it's one of the more enjoyable sitcoms I can ever remember watching. Have you ever watched Brooklyn Nine Nine?

Big Bang Theory is horrible. Generic jokes about nerdy guys being chummy with impossibly hot chick. Set up, punch line, laugh track. Ugh.

Have you guys seen $10 Million Big Foot Hunt?

It is hosted by DEAN CAIN (you know, that guy who played Superman on that terrible show), and if (when) one of the teams find Big Foot, they will win TEN MILLION DOLLARS!!!1!1!¡i!


Anyone watch Archer?

That's what I like about it. There's a zaniness mixed with a relatability and likeability of the characters, it's found a nice line. And it's unique compared to some other roommate comedies, it's snappy and you don't know when the punchline is coming, unlike, as you say, the predictability of Big Bang Theory.
Brooklyn Nine Nine has just started over here, I haven't watched a full episode yet but I caught a few clips and it looks funny, Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher have so much potential together.

It's Archer Vice now! I thought I'd hate the new direction, but I love it, especially Pam. Lana is starting to really annoy me though, Aisha Tyler is just mailing it in this season so far, in my opinion.

I remember Dean Cain! He guest starred in Don't Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23 a few times, playing himself as James Vanderbeek's nemesis, sort of. That was a criminally underrated show.

I've seen all but one season of Archer just started watching the most recent one. Just watched the episode with Anthony Bourdain guest starring in it and it was great.

Meh, I guess I had not given Aisha Tyler's performance much thought, but I guess you might be right.

The second episode of the season was great.  With the return of the gay hitmen, and the Cuban guy (forget his name), it was hilarious.  The episode after that was hit and miss. 

Kreeger is the best.

I did not discover that show until after it got canceled, unfortunately.  When I first saw the commercials I thought it was stupid, and then I had missed the train.  So then I gave it a whirl on Netflix, and I loved it.
