The Shows I Quit
How to Make it in America
The third season of Modern Family didn't start well so I gave up. They replaced the cute kid with a not cute one. And it's the same old story lines again and again. It was fun while it lasted.
Re: The Office
I was intrigued by James Spader but not that intrigued.
I didn't even give the bottom two shows on my list an episode this season. And now they both have been cancelled. I made the right call.
Shows Maybe I Would Have Liked But I Didn't Watch at All
American Horror Story
Hell on Wheels
I hear American Horror Story might be worth watching. I've only heard middling things about that AMC Western.
The Show That I Gave One Episode to But Then Marc Made Me Think Maybe I Should Give It Another Chance but Then Even He Got Bored With It
The Show That I Watched Once Two Years Ago That I Should Probably Give Another Chance To
The Shows I Actually Watched
Bored to Death
The best of the three seasons and its reward was to get canned. There was a slight shift in tone this season and it made a difference for me. I'm going to miss this show and I look forward to whatever the next thing Jonathan Ames does.
Not the best season. Perhaps they are too busy working on their Broadway hit these days to pay close enough attention to their TV show.
I found the first half of the first season pretty slow. Then it slowly picked up. And then there was this season! I liked it a lot. I can't remember who I talked to that said that they thought too many things happened too quickly this season. I completely disagree. The things that happened in the last few episodes had been building up for a long time. I'm really looking forward to the third season.
The Walking Dead
Another show that really picked up the quality. I was a little down on this after the first season but it won me over by the time the first half of the second season ended.
Parks and Recreation
As always, so good. But Rob Lowe (or at least his dumb hair) should probably go away.
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
The show keeps getting more and more absurd. I love it. How many more years can they keep going on before it gets stale? Apparently - a long time.
I watched all 12 episodes in roughly one 24-hour period in one visit to MD. I didn't sleep much that day. So much fun and so addictive. This isn't the best show you'll ever see but it definitely deserves all the buzz.
