Right up until season 4 episode 1!
What went wrong then?
Your guess is as good as mine. That episode suddenly completely changed the style and quality of humor. It never got back to the same level of quality even with the handful of classic episodes in season 4 and a few beyond. It became a shell of its former self. So many years of badness went by and became normalized that most people think of it as not going downhill till Steve Carrell left, but they're wrong Seasons 2 and 3's DELETED SCENES are twice as funny as most of what came after. They're amazing, you should look them up if you don't have the DVDs.
Why does everyone keep acting like The Wire WASN'T sloppily written weak sauce plots with ATROCIOUS not-fit-to-shovel-shit grade lead actors... that was entirely carried by shock value and several super-memorable supporting characters???
Cause it isn’t? I’m rewatching it right now for the fourth or fifth time.
Caught up on Castlevania. Fantastic.
the wire is amazing . have done 4 full watches myself and me and the wife are starting to think about a 5th
started s3 of stranger things and I'm liking it
I've really like Walking Dead for a long time now but i haven't watched the last season.. The 100 is another good show i think.. I want to watch Stranger Things when i have the time ..
I'll grant that several episodes were kinda filler. I wasn't a big fan of hoq they handled McNulty throughout. But Idris Elba and several others delivered solid performances, and when it was good, it was great. Jamie Hector did an amazing job with Marlow; the body language is fantastic.
It had ups and downs, but as a whole I'd wager it's in the upper echelon of HBO originals.
*edit* The Wire, I mean.
Started and finished The Boys on Amazon, its an easy 7/10, soft 8/10. People wre saying there's some big changes from the comic, so I'll have to read that soon once my backlog is smaller, but as a show it seems to retain the idea and feel of the source; and if you're someone who's tired of traditional hero stories, definitely worth a watch.
Finished The Boys this weekend. Fun watch. Definitely recommend it.
realized other day never finished s5 of bo jack . so powered through that the last week
bleak and depressing but great at the same time .

Full House is complete, now onto Boy Meets World.
Nothing is going to stop me from watching my 90s sitcoms. Nothing!
Boy Meets World is like, the best sitcom to have ever existed.
Finally finished all of Mad Men. Consistently good across the board (Seasons 3-5 is where the show really flexed it's muscles). The last season was shaky but it didn't end as badly as I was led to believe. It was still odd to have season 7 resolve itself mid way but then hits the reset button and awkwardly shuffle around for another 7 episodes while desperately trying to tie whatever dangling loose ends. Not the ideal ending, but the show was clearly on it's last legs and needed a conclusion that I suppose was good enough.
Binge watching You Rang M'Lord. Just finished On The Buses.
Been slogging my way through Handmaid's Tale. Easily the most tedious show I've ever sat through besides maybe Downton Abbey. It's a very well made show and the writing is good, but I just find the pacing of most episodes exceedingly ponderous.
Watched The Boys in one go and I loved every second of it. Can't wait to check out Carnival Row this coming weekend. Also started Wu Assassins on Netflix, and so far it's good as well.
I binge watched S3 of The Expanse the other week- absolutely loved it.
It's a fantastic series and right up my alley- nice hard sci-fi that isn't dissimilar from the tone of Alastair Reynolds' novels. Gritty and grim with great characters.
The only thing I know about this show is it was always playing on one of my flights and I would just stare at it aimlessly listening to house music and drinking screwdrivers.
