BSG by ucblockhead (4.00 / 1) #1 Sun Jan 14, 2007 at 10:13:09 AM EST
I still have hopes, but so far, it hasn't come near matching the last batch of episodes last season.

I'm unenthused about TV in general as Lost seams to have also jumped the shark.

"House" has gotten boring, with the drawn-out and unbelievable storyline with one-man-Gestapo Tritter.

"Heroes" started out pretty well, but had achingly slow plot development. It might improve.

Still, "Boondocks" has been renewed and is coming back in March. And "Dr Who" might be interesting with the new companion.

The execs need to learn to end serials by lm (4.00 / 3) #3 Sun Jan 14, 2007 at 11:37:30 AM EST
I really like the way that Lost, 24 and other shows have revived the serial genre. It's a pity, though, that the major studios can't find it within themselves to end them after a season or two and move the writers and production crews onto something new. The end result is contrived story lines and waning interest.

There is no more degenerate kind of state than that in which the richest are supposed to be the best.

"love" by ucblockhead (4.00 / 1) #4 Sun Jan 14, 2007 at 02:37:48 PM EST
It seems to me that one of the things that kills them is all the love triangle bullshit that they seem enamored with.

That, and in the case of "Lost", being unable to stay consistent.

But yeah...I'd love to see a network announce at the outset that a show will have a two year run.

"Terrorist" by nebbish (4.00 / 1) #6 Mon Jan 15, 2007 at 01:41:46 AM EST
Sounds interesting. I've been looking for a good, short thriller. Might give it a go.

I'm meant to be borrowing series 1 of the WIre this week off a mate. I'm not mad on cop shows (and couldn't really get into the Shield), but I'm looking forward to it.

If you want some intelligent, compelling, meaty US drama I strongly recommend Deadwood. I was quite taken aback from it. Roughly based on fact as well so has an interesting historical angle.

When I've got through some of The Wire... don't think I can cope with two things like that at once.
