    Huh. I completely forgot that existed. I watched the first episode right when it first aired, and I don't even remember why I didn't watch more. I remember thinking it was funny.

    Wow, that was NINE years ago?! Time flies!!! :(

    i just read up on it, looks like there was a 4-5 year gap between s2 and s3, 2016 being s3 debut.
    EDIT: Oh and sorry, I think its just called "Todd Margaret".

    It had that full title when the pilot came out, at least.

    Arrested Development S5:

    I've come to accept that ending every season with a cliffhanger they have no reasonable expectation of resolving is just part of their gag, but I'm over it. The show never goes anywhere. Every time I think some kind of resolution to a thread is going to take place, they just pull a (comedic version of) Lindelof, and move on to the next random thing.

    The original run was ahead of its time, the 4th season return was mildly disappointing, and the 5th is just... Flat. Two thumbs sideways. Meh. A waste of a stellar ensemble.

    Thanks for bringing up Lindelof....did you follow The Leftovers? I broke all of my furniture after the series finale. Not sure I'm going to give that guy another chance.

    I gave up on anything he worked on after Prometheus.

    Literally every single person (until today) I've seen discuss the Leftovers finale loved it and many said something like "I can't believe he pulled this off after how bad Prometheus was, I forgive him!!!"

    God I miss Banshee, that show had ridiculously brutal fight scenes (which I loved). Into the Badlands is pretty entertaining, but it's more wire fu and less gritty fighting like Banshee.
    I think I might go back and catch up on Strike Back, that was also a very entertaining show.

    I'm thinking about watching Banshee again. What a random find, I loaded up several eps for a AZ to MA plane ride and got hooked for the series. Have only seen maybe one ep of Strike Back, I should put that on the list. Watched that Quarry season but it got canceled, had potential for sure. Greasy southern 70s action but slow and dark.
    Who carries the Badlands show?

    Silicon valley just seems caught up in the same story line . something good happens, Richard fucks it up . its just gotten old .But I did enjoy this one more than the last I think


    I was pleasantly surprised by EP 1 of the new AD season , enjoyed it . But EP2 was a let down. felt really flat. Michael is def not that engaging . Buster feels a bit done in what they can do with him and the Jobe story line with the dad is not doing much for me at all.

    Quarry was cool. If you like that check out Hap and Leonard.
    Netflix has into the badlands. Hulu might too but i don't remember.

    I haven't. I mean, I'm in the minority who enjoyed Prometheus, but everything else he's done gets thumbs-down from me. IMHO, he has one gimmick (leaving all threads open and un-resolved), and I'm just not into it. He'd definitely have a place in that South Park episode where the US Government is trying to get help from movie directors:

    Leftovers does not use his "one gimmick." It's good, especially the last season. Unlike horrible writers like Akiva Goldsman, he's actually a smart guy and is maturing.

    I thought Prometheus was decent. Not my favourite Alien-franchise movie, but it didn't deserve the hate it got. Certainly not the worst Alien movie.

    Anyone watch The Tick? I loved the animated series, and the comics, and I even sort of grew to like the older live-action series, but the new Amazon series, IMO, is better than the older live-action series, for sure.

    ^Haven't watched those, yet. Tried watching the pilot from before the series got greenlit and it didn't really hold me, but I probably ought to give the series a try. Loved the cartoon, back when.

    Banshee season 1 took a bit of time to get rolling, but by the time that rapist kickboxer showed up, and especially that rapist albino, it was the greatest. Season 2 I found way too maudlin. Season 3 is one of the greatest seasons of TV ever, almost every episode was awesome. Season 4 was a gigantic letdown, that entire serial killer subplot was a waste of time and may have taken up the most running time!!
