Good Day LA - TV Shows
Jillian used to be this kookie iJustine like breath of sunshine. but right around 2000 when all the rest of the Fox News shows made their switch, this show tanked. They drank the Kool Aid and switched to Republican Dogma. Utterly useless after that. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:46 am

Sports Night - TV Shows
Great show, one of my all-time favorites. Only problem was that it didn't last 12 more seasons. And the laugh track was taken out. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:43 am

Max Headroom - TV Shows
I found a weird disconnect with the whole thing about using manual typewriters as the keyboard for a computer, and yes, the big, clunky camera, even in the face of miniaturization, but if you are looking for old-school hard Science Fiction (not SyFy), then this is where to go. Every week, a new technology and the results of man rubbing up against it. Savory and tasty SF, with enough else going on to keep anyone vaguely interested. Ultimately, the irritating main character may have been the true demise of the show. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:38 am

Terra Nova - TV Shows
I love how people who really blast this show have no idea what went on. Yep a little contrived, but nothing was etched in stone. There were slowly unfolding plot devices that, clearly, were just a little too subtle for the american "slpain it to me" attitude. On the other hand, based on the season 1 finale, this could have taken the X-files route with constant additions of threats and threads, with no resolutions. Maybe Fox saved us from 5 more years of "they have a plan" -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:31 am

Ally McBeal - TV Shows
ensemble cast folks. Yes Calista literally fell through a couple of the larger cracks in the floor towards the end there, but there was a LOT of other things going on: Judge Armin Shimmerman, Cage and Fish, and the wickedly funny secretary "Daddy always said I was the best kisser".... LOL. I loved the show, Don't like it, don't watch it. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:24 am

Andromeda - TV Shows
Sorbo came out of Hercules and went straight into this. And we got the same unflavored tapioca out of him. Better ensemble should have lead to a better show, but at least it stayed faithful to the Roddenberry principals (unlike E:FC, DS9, etc) -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:18 am

Married with Children - TV Shows
The most confusing episodes of this series, for me, were the sudden injection of spin-off pilots. the shows where the whole bundy clan was ignored and we went to Matt Leblanc playing "vinny" with wis grifting father. Couldn't pull a laugh out of me with a pitchfork. Other than that,,,, comfortable, formulaic humor that spawned 1000 copies. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:12 am

Still Standing - TV Shows
"Fat guy, skinny wife" the only thing watchable was Renee Olstead growing up. Meh. Another married with Children knockoff. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:01 am

8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter - TV Shows
I think it was really brave to try to continue the show after Ritter's death. If they could have explored that and maybe shown a few clumsy attempts at dating or something it could have been a masterpiece. but David Spade is my number one reason to turn OFF the tv. He was like a grown-up Oliver!! -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:57 am

Stargate SG-1 - TV Shows
Losing Jack Oneill wasn't such a bad thing. the first two seasons showed me that my fond memories of McGuyver were hazy at best. Oneill made so many blatant acting errors, I wondered if he'd taken a blow to the head recently. Slowly he warmed up as the writers worked around is "quirks". I hated Jonas Quinn, and was glad to have dDaniel back so much that the ham-handed method of exiting Quinn made no difference to me. When SG1 absorbed the Farscape crew I was hoping for new life, and got it. Yes, the Ori sucked, it sucked that they were easy to kill, it sucked that they couldn't just let the series go with the wrap up of the Guald. but the 200th episode was one of the best tribute episodes of all time. I still can't help thinking about the "younger, edgier cast" when people mention the Star Trek reboot. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:53 am

Dexter - TV Shows
I know that religion and psychosis are often close travelers, but the incessant injection of religion with Brother Sam and the apocalypse killers was just painful. A lot of the audience dropped during that period, but with the revelation of Dexter to Deb, the show has a little more life again, However, the show could go either way. I'm confident that Manny Coto can pull this fish out of the fire. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:41 am

Grimm - TV Shows
I think we'll see the end of season 2 as the jumping of the shark. Season 1 ended with a dual "buddy cop" vibe: two humans, actually cops, plus the grimm-vessen team on the other side. Once the cop buddy is told about the vessen, he's followed by the police chief as part of the team, and the vanilla-pudding girlfriend is sure to follow.Soon we'll have an ensemble case of characters far sooner than the bad guys are able to multiply.. Hope I'm wrong. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:35 am

Xena: Warrior Princess - TV Shows
My ONLY beef with this show is that people keep adding it to their lists of best SF series. Seriously? Just because the show is on SyFy, it's Science Fiction? What does that say about wrestling? Hear this now: THIS SHOW IS FANTASY. And it was pretty good at that. that's why it outlasted Hercules (and maybe because they didn't have a historical figure looming over their main character for comparison). It's a fun romp (in a "girl power" kind of way). -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:29 am

Hercules: The Legendary Journeys - TV Shows
I can see wanting to expand the role of the sidekick a little so that Herc wasn't the only one saving the day. but why does every hack writer have to put modern items into historic settings?. I think they "invented" a cell phone at one point. I liked the first couple of seasons better when the running gag was woven into the names of the supporting characters:: the thief - Felonious, LOL By the time Xena spun off the formula was diluted more than a Homeopathic remedy. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:23 am

Kung Fu - TV Shows
I'll admit, I was very young when this show came out, and I loved all the martial arts stuff. But I just couldn't wrap my head around the white guy. This confusion multiplied when they finally show the long-sought "brother" - an asian. I knew enough about genetics to realize these guys did not spring from the same well. *sigh* Based on the rapid cancellation, I could see i wasn't the only one. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:15 am

Psych - TV Shows
I can't peel myself away from this show. Thank you Ion TV for showing 8 episodes a day to get me caught up on seasons 1-5. As a comedy, the show is a little topical. they love spoofing the latest trends, and of course, they will never stop poking fun at CBS's 'The Mentalist' for ripping off their formula. Having the main couple get together and slowly evolve wasn't such a bad thing, in the name of "professionalism" they keep their relationship out of the work relationship (mostly). Another fun thing about the show: there's a pineapple in every episode, sometimes obvious, sometimes subtle. "Spot the pineapple" is a favorite game of die-hard fans, and a fair drinking game bonus when combined with "drink every time they eat." -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:11 am

Firefly - TV Shows
I'll admit, I came in late on one of the early episodes, expecting an SF- space show (based on the previews). But there were 20 minutes of people in western outfits doing entirely western things, and I thought I was watching the wrong show. I gave up. Years later some 'froth at the mouth" fans who were friends of mine forced me to watch the un-aired pilot from the dvd collection and I was hooked. Just in time to get a little depressed by the loss of characters in the movie and Josh returning to his fetish for super-powered little girls. I would have completely preferred to have several more seasons and no movie (after I became a fan). -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:01 am

Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. - TV Shows
Like so many pre-modern comedies, this series fell into the tap of having one character constantly "inventing" modern conveniences, usually as comic relieve, but sometimes for actual plot generation. The overall plot with the golden orbs was kinda nice, even thought the western/scifi vibe didn't really catch (maybe someone should have told Joss Wedon about this series). But the show really just fell apart when they brought in Gomez Adams as a recurring "whacky professor" character. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 5:52 am

Detriot 1-8-7 - TV Shows
I glanced over this show once early one. First, the thing that started out as an insult is that 187 is CALIFORNIA code for murder. It's a parking violation (or something) in Detroit. It may be believed that this slang term has echoed across the world, but not, apparently in Detroit. I've hears rumors that this was supposed to be a mocumentary like a dark version of RENO 9-1-1. that might explain whi they cheesed off so many Detroit natives and lost their base. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 5:45 am
