Modern Family - TV Shows
Hmmm. Nobody is likable on this show anymore. All the kids are obnoxious, Cam and Mitchell are tiresome old cliches, Gloria and Jay, ho hum, she's just waiting for him to die, and Phil and Claire are boring, boring, boring. Maybe they could pull a Little House on the Prairie ending and burn down their subdivisions as they ride off to new lives. Either that or make them zombies. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on August 24, 2015, 3:40 pm

Fresh Off the Boat - TV Shows
Chef Eddie Huang, who's autobiography the show is based on, was very disappointed at the generic sitcom style of the production. At first criticizing it, he recently has backed off and has gained assurances from the producers that Season 2 will be more faithful to his book and his own family's experiences. To be fair, the writing did get much better during the second half of the first season. The Huang family sees their American neighbors as obsessed with pop culture, greedy, and not to be trusted. The neighbors see the Huangs as secretive, suspicious, and not to be trusted. I have high hopes for some really good storylines in Season 2. All in all, not a bad show and with a good chance of being very good. I'd give it a B- for the first season. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on May 22, 2015, 9:47 am

Bates Motel - TV Shows
OK, it's gotten to the point where Norman is dressing up like Mother, seeing her when she isn't there, and freaking everyone the hell out, especially poor old Dylan, who really has a soft spot for his loony-tunes kid brother. Norman has also admitted to himself and Mother that he wants to have sex with her. I will NEVER be able to see a Freddie Highmore movie again without thinking about Norman Bates! Charlie Bucket, you sick SOB! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on May 8, 2015, 12:39 pm

2 Broke Girls - TV Shows
I thought it didn't have a chance of lasting even one full season but now it's a hit, go figure. The vulgarity is something of a shock at first, considering it leads off family hour on CBS Mondays but the jokes are all good-natured and pretty funny. I love Sophie, too, but I don't know about her being stupid like spacer said. She's crude as hell, but so is the show, but there's an underlying warmth that appeals to a lot of people. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on May 8, 2015, 12:33 pm

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
This show has really taken off and now regularly beats it's lead-in, The Middle (source: TV By the Numbers). One thing that has helped is less of a reliance on story lines revolving around the 11-year old Adam and more of a focus on the older teen siblings and the parents. I think it was something of a stretch to expect adults to get into the head of a kid as young as Adam but much easier to identity with high schoolers getting ready for college and getting into drinking, smoking pot, and sex. As for the mangled 80's references, it seems they have cut back on that gimmick as well as the obnoxious video taping by Adam. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on April 3, 2015, 8:42 am

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
Patton Oswalt, speaking to the critics of the show that demand 100% historical accuracy said it's not supposed to be an exact snapshot in time. If you listen to the way he delivers the line "it was September 8th (or whatever) 1980-something" you will hear him hesitate and almost mumble the last part because the character of adult Adam is embarrassed by his faulty memory. A running gag with the writers is to put two things together that don't belong, like a "new"game from 1984 with a "new" movie from 1982. People remember their childhood through a haze and often remember events wrong. Technically, this show is not a period piece but a show about an adult remembering the best parts of his childhood. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on February 28, 2015, 8:09 am

Freaky Links - TV Shows
I remember this show and how stupid Fox TV thought we all were, this was around the same time as the "real" alien autopsy fiasco! It wasn't a bad show at all and would have maybe been a hit but too many people were pissed off that the website turned out to be fake and the way Fox tried to pretend it and then the TV show were all real. Ethan Embry was perfect as the dumb ass Derek, you wanted to believe in him just because he was so naive and helpless. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on December 23, 2014, 1:15 pm

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
It was kinda lame at first but the writing has gotten much better this season. Patton Oswalt lends a lot of class and snark as the narrator. I laughed myself sick when the two brothers almost electrocuted themselves trying to de-scramble a porn channel on cable, brings back a LOT of memories, now all the porn you want is right there on your smart phone, too bad, it was a great challenge trying to make out the naughty bits through a scrambled picture! It's a good show and demonstrates that kids and families never change no matter how much the technology has advanced. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on December 23, 2014, 1:10 pm

Eerie, Indiana - TV Shows
It's a cult thing. I saw a kid at the mall wearing a Marshall Teller t-shirt and asked if that was for the alt. band or the TV show and he said the TV show! He never heard of the band. God bless Netflix and Hulu! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on October 10, 2014, 9:01 pm

Boy Meets World - TV Shows
I totally agree that Corey and Shawn's friendship was what made the show work, when it did work. The longer it ran however, the lamer the stories became and it eventually turned into yet another mindless sitcoms with sex crazed teens trying to get into each otehr's pants. The first coupke of seasons were very well written and acted. After that, not so much. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on September 21, 2014, 12:14 pm

Unhappily Ever After - TV Shows
This was a weird one. The dad had a perverted best friend in the form of his youngest child's stuffed bunny. He was the only one who could hear it talk and often spent hours happily engaged in drinking and porn binges with it. Actually the kid who originally owned it could hear it talk sometimes, too. Mr. Floppy's voice was provided by Bobcat Goldwaithe who was totally believable as a drunken, drugged out, and deranged toy rabbit. The two older kids were generic sitcom teens and actually detracted from the show as they were too normal. The youngest kid however, Ross, (played by Justin Berfield between the ages of 9-13) showed signs of schizophrenia just like his dad. Unfortunately, after the 3rd season, the scripts started featuring more and more of the older kids and the way-too normal mom. I guess having a booze and porn addicted bunny and a schizophrenic dad and son team was too much for TV back there in the 1990's. One good thing about its cancellation, it allowed Justin Berfield to take the role of Reese on Malcolm in the Middle. Ross Malloy and Reese Wilkerson are a LOT alike, both offbeat and quirky and live inside their own private little worlds. Watching Berfield in MITM was like watching a teenage Ross. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on September 21, 2014, 12:08 pm

Star Trek: The Animated Series - TV Shows
Wow! This was on TV way before my time but when I finally got a chance to see it, I was blown away. I mean they got almost all of the original series cast as voice actors and had amazing stories written by the likes of D.C. Fontana and Larry Niven. It's a crime it only lasted for 22 episodes. I'm sure it really stuck out on Saturday mornings in the midst of all the blatantly commercial garbage they pour into kids' heads. An intelligent cartoon? That's way to daring! The little ones might actually start to think for themselves. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on September 21, 2014, 11:44 am

Raising Hope - TV Shows
Garrett Dillahunt in a sitcom? I was skeptical at first and watched out of morbid curiosity, I was sure this thing would go down in flames. To my astonishment, Garrett was very funny even though his appearance in a movie or TV show usually makes my skin crawl since he was always a super creepy bad guy. This was a sweet show and I'm glad it didn't go on for longer than it did, 3 seasons seems just about perfect. I hate to see a basically good show get stale. Cloris Leachman was awesome as always and really added a lot to the show as did the many, many side characters and guests, like Jeffrey Tambor, Stephen Root, and Fred Willard. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on September 21, 2014, 11:31 am

Phil of the Future - TV Shows
I remember being very surprised by this show. I was just flipping channels and landed on it, started watching and became hooked. Ricky Ullman was very good and had natural comedic timing. The writing was surprisingly intelligent, considering the show had a pretty standard sci-fi premise. Instead of devolving into a mindless teen comedy with a science fiction element thrown in, the episodes were original, funny, and quite moving at times. Phil always made the best of his situation but he really was homesick for his own time and became quite emo on occasion. I don't know why it only lasted 2 seasons, unless it was just too intelligent for the Disney Channel. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on August 19, 2014, 11:11 am

Tosh.0 - TV Shows
He's such a nice, normal looking young man, like the college kid next door. Then he opens his mouth and vile racist sexist homophobic and misogynistic filth pours out non-stop. I thought for sure Comedy Central would pull the plug on his show after the "rape joke incident" but apparently it only boosted his ratings. Disgusting TV. Here's a news article about it: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/07/11/why-daniel-tosh-s-rape-joke-at-the-laugh-factory-wasn-t-funny.html -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on June 26, 2014, 7:44 am

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo - TV Shows
Cartooner and MartyMarty: I looked it up on 3 different sources. The mother puts most of the "TV Money" into trusts funds she established for her children and granddaughter. That is a really smart thing to do and I applaud her decision. The kids will have access to the trusts when they turn 21. Private trust funds for your family are in no way charity, but I see how someone might confuse them. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on June 26, 2014, 7:35 am

Bates Motel - TV Shows
Oedipus Rex meets Alfred Hitchcock. Seriously, young Norman Bates is in love and in lust with his mother, and she encourages him. This odd couple is so obvious about their feelings for each other that Norman's half-brother Dylan calls them Mr. and Mrs. Bates. Great show with a great cast. Freddie Highmore nails it as the strange, brooding, psychotic teen and Vera Farmiga is awesome as the sexy, slutty, manipulative momzilla. Norman comes off as a sweet, shy and awkward kid but has a disturbing habit of blacking out. Whenever that happens, someone nearby usually turns up dead. In an early episode we see him in one of these fugue states when he tries to murder Dylan by bashing his head in with a meat mallet. In a flashback, we watched as he crushed his step-father's skull with a blender. We also watched in horror as his sexy teacher seduced him, knowing she would end up very dead, which she did and our boy Norman lost all memory of the evening. Great show and well worth watching! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on April 11, 2014, 2:40 pm
