Probably gonna have to re-watch Party Down soon.
Tony Hale dropping some AD knowledge on this week’s Veep.
For me, this was one of the best parts of the entire season.
I have become enamored with this show. The second half of season two is about as good as it gets.
I finally got around to watching a few of the web pilots that Amazon produced, and what I saw was mostly lackluster. I attempted to watch four of the pilots, Alpha House, Betas, Those Who Can’t, and Zombieland, and I only finished the first two. Alpha House has real potential. Political-based comedy is pretty hot and the show has a known commodity in John Goodman front and center leading the show. Bill Murray makes a pretty nice cameo, so the pilot is worth watching just for that. Betas is about some start-up app developers and seems like it would air on the CW or ABC Family. For some reason Moby made a cameo. Those Who Can’t tried really hard, but I couldn’t sit through it. The premise was interesting, focusing on relatively young, modern, toilet-mouthed teachers and their antics, but the acting was sub-par and the comedy just really wasn’t there. Zombieland was complete garbage and I got maybe three minutes into it. The nameless, lifeless acting and terrible production quality turned me off immediately and did zero justice to the very enjoyable film.
I just ran through the first season of Rubicon, which unfortunately turned out to be the only season, over the past two days. I haven’t seen an episode since I watched it when it was actually on TV, before AMC decided to cancel it. It’s a real shame that smart shows have trouble staying alive on modern television. And it’s hard to believe AMC would bring back a half-assed show like The Killing after originally canceling it and just leave Rubicon resting in peace. Shame on you, AMC.
Look at these beautiful babies.
Can it be season two now?
This season of New Girl is really doing it for me, guys.
