#1090898 Worst Shows of 2017

Posted by Pasidon on 19 September 2018 - 07:00 AM in Media Discussion

I sure will, but I don't include reality shows since... well... I don't watch those.  I'm more interested in laying out the worst scripted shows, and improve entertainment is in its own category of stank.  Walking Dead will probably be on there, but that does mean I have to watch it.  AGAIN.  Which I don't want to.  If George R. R. Martian's sci-fi show comes out this year, that's probably going to make it on there.  And Once Upon a Time is already in slot one since its last season was earlier this year, and that level of terrible will never be topped.  I've defiantly got a top 5, but worst 5 is still in the works.  And it's not the end of the year yet, so... PHH.

#1084164 Worst Shows of 2017

Posted by Pasidon on 30 May 2018 - 08:38 AM in Media Discussion

If they're cancelling that crap because of something that arbitrary, then whatever network it is obviously has impaired judgement and will just replace it with an even worse show.  And that Brooklyn-Nine-Nine garbage is unbelievable.  The only good part of the show is Terry Crews, which is not and WAS not enough to sustain viewers.  NBC will learn that the easy way, which is failing and wasting millions of dollars.  Out of all the good shows that got cancelled, that was not the one to bring back.

#1095391 Worst 5 Shows of 2018

Posted by Pasidon on 29 December 2018 - 09:31 AM in Media Discussion

I think I told you before, but if Hill House's first 3-4 episodes were the events at the house, then their adult lives and their lingering traumas for the rest of the season, I wouldn't have minded it.  But that obviously wasn't the case.


And Gaga, I was going to put Walking Dead on the list AGAIN... but I didn't watch a single episode this season.  And I heard they killed Rick off, and if you recall my list from 2017... that was literally my one suggestion.  And they did it.  So, they get a free pass this year.

#1095383 Worst 5 Shows of 2018

Posted by Pasidon on 29 December 2018 - 05:54 AM in Media Discussion

It's a steep competition, especially when I don't even want to watch half of them.  How can there possibly even by a top 5 worst shows when I hate them all almost equally?  Here's an almost randomly ordered list to settle your questions.


#5 The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina




Sabrina the Teenage Witch is a show about Sabrina who is a teenage witch.  The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is hardly chilling, or is there really any any adventure happening.  Even though this show is supposed to be a giant reference to the 1990's show, it is anything but.  Instead of goofy aunts and a witty talking cat, you have uncomfortably realistic satanic values and a gay immortal who lives in the attic for masturbation gags.  


#4  American Horror Story: Apocalypse 




"Hey, wait a minute... the first 2 episodes of this season are good.  What's the deal, bird brain?"  The deal is a sticky, smelly stain on this wonderful carpet we have.  How do you ruin a great plot about the end of the world and the wacky cast of survivors involved?  You kill most of them all off before you can say "is Jessica Lang back yet" and then just turn the whole thing into a sequel to the worst season of the show.  That's right.  Did you like Coven?  Me neither.  But it's back and so are all the characters that died.  Yes, if you're counting, some of these people have already died THREE TIMES before this season even started.  Fourth time's the charm.


#3  Supernatural




It's been going since 2005.  Have they exhausted every possible sci-fi trope yet?  No.  Does it feel like it?  Yes.  Just cut the umbilical cord and throw that 13 year old baby into the trash already.


#2  Roseanne




Speaking of bringing things back from the dead that should stay there.  That's right.  The cast is back and better than ever.  And by better, I do mean old and really awkward.  Laugh-tracks and large women still do well in television, but not in this case.  And the show gets canceled because Roseanne trash-talks a politician?  Yea, sure.  That's why it's gone.


#1  the Haunting of Hill House




The critically acclaimed Netflix spook fest, but I think the critics got their "nots" and "goods" mixed around.  It has a few good moments, but ultimately, it is a heaping mess of brooding adults and very UNchronological storytelling.  A cast of very similar looking white people give us glimpses into their traumatic childhood while they're just trying to live their perfectly ordinary low-middle-high class American lives.  Do you like flashbacks?  How about hallucination sequences? How about some more flachbacks?  How about entire episodes that are flashbacks... but is it really a flashback or is the rest of the show a flash-forward?   I think someone got all the slides mixed up.  The entire show is based around 3-4 good ideas, but the rest is just frosting.  Some people like frosting... but you're not supposed to make 90% of the stinken cake out of it.  Mmm... thanks, mommy.  These minimal ghost sequences are so tasty in my mouth.  Rewatching the same 10 scenes from different perspectives makes my tum-tum sooo happy.  See you back on the list next season, House Hill.

#1095423 Worst 5 Shows of 2018

Posted by Pasidon on 29 December 2018 - 11:35 PM in Media Discussion

I was considering watching the new season of House of Cards just to see how bad it is.  So, they kick the rapist off, and just have his wife turn into the president?  I actually am very interested to see how they write their way out of that hole.  Well... I'm assuming they don't get very far out of that hole at all, actually.

Would dark brown make much of a difference?  It's already very... well... brown.

#1082506 Westworld

Posted by Pasidon on 24 April 2018 - 01:11 AM in Media Discussion

You need to learn the difference between "best" and "popular."  I'll give the new season a look at here soon.  Without Anthony Hopkins, I dunno how interesting it'll be.  

#1078763 Video of the Day

Posted by Pasidon on 01 March 2018 - 01:02 AM in Media Discussion

"Counter strike is the most popular action game played on the internet."  These people sound like an old woman trying to understand video games.  And it doesn't surprise me that Gabe "Chin Tower" Newell's most notable employment tactic is throwing food at them.

Isn't his presidency always in trouble?

I'm sure a man who plans nothing will do just fine against a man who has planned and practiced for this meeting for years.  Guess which one of these describes Trump.

Trump had a conference with his Confederation of Evil about school safety, where he takes the time to explain that 20% of all teachers should be carrying a weapon, and if they do, they should receive a bonus.  Yes, he actually said that teachers with guns should make more money.

“I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares! "


An actual word-for-word post that Trump just made.  I don't even know where to start with this one...

No dangers to security?  Borrring.


Anyway.  Yes, I do follow Trump on Facebook.  Yes, I do find it endlessly entertaining.  You get jewels like this from time to time:




Yes, Trump actually posted that on his page.  Game of Thrones font and all, next to a very unflattering filtered picture of himself.  Then again, if you're an overweight 80 year old man who sits under sunlamps more than the actual sun, it's difficult to look flattering at all.

The government has been shutdown for 2 weeks?  I haven't even noticed.  Is that a good thing or not?

#1095318 Top 5 Shows of 2018

Posted by Pasidon on 27 December 2018 - 08:34 PM in Media Discussion

I was going to do a Marvel joke for Mrs. Maisel, then scratched it, but forgot to remove the butt of the joke.  You understand.


But America's Got Talent?  Get rid of Heidi Klum and we'll talk.  And Big Bang Theory is just the same skit dragged across the mud a hundred times.  I saw 2 of the new episodes this year, and I was actually considering putting it on the top 5 worst show list.  Absolutely terrible pedestrian comedy.  But luckily, there were 5 far worse shows this year.  I'll get to those later.

#1095277 Top 5 Shows of 2018

Posted by Pasidon on 27 December 2018 - 06:32 AM in Media Discussion

If life is a roller coaster, then I'm the guy who gets to disappoint children by pulling the brakes on it.  2018 is just a testament of how terrible once good shows can get, and as a result, we have new good shows that have wiggle room to become terrible in the future as well.  Who will join the junkyard of childish things, and who will come out on top this year?  Not Walking Dead.


#5 Gotham




Gotham has been turning sour with terrible writing decisions and the annoying tendency to bring people back from the dead more than Jesus himself, but its 4th season was still a solid bit of television.  You just have to use you imagination to blot out some of the ghoulishly dumb plot twists.  They may replace the actress who played Poison Ivy THREE times, or regress every character's progression, but somehow, I still don't mind.  If they didn't bring back Barbra Keen just to turn her into a ninja prostitute, then maybe Gotham could have gotten higher on the list this year.  LEAVE PEOPLE DEAD


#4  The Marvelous Mrs Maisel




Amazon is allowed to get it right at least once, I guess.  The Marvelous Mrs. Mavel is a story of a obnoxiously Jewish woman who wants to be a comedian in the early 20th century, but since that's not being a housewife of a bar maid, the world conspires against her as she struggles to become the first successful woman in stand up comedy.  The horribly predictable witticisms sometimes made me want to punch a child, but I lived.


#3 G.L.O.W.




Do you like wrestling?  Me neither.  But here we are.  G.L.O.W. is a show about a failed sci-fi director in the 1980's who wants to cash in on the cheesy staged wrestling genera, but do it with women.  100% the best show about fake wrestling you'll ever see.  "Are you some sort of sick, perverted feminist with all these female equality shows, Pasidon?"  Probably.  And you will be, too.


#2 Daredevil




He's back.  There was action.  There were tears (not mine.  I swear.  Mostly.)  Season 3 was a story about a blind guy who wants to save the city from a fat guy and a dirty cop who is dangerously good at throwing things.  Did he win?  Did he conquer his foes and come out on top?  Well, it doesn't matter since NETFLIX CANCELED IT.  So, no.  Daredevil didn't win since he no longer exists.  It was still one of the best seasons you'll watch from 2018.


#1  Happy!




Yaayyy.  Happy is the best show ever made.  How do I know this?  Because I watched it.  Have you?  No?  Then I'll cut this review short so you can GO WATCH IT.

#1084245 The Mist

The MIst's show is very different than the movie.  It has a very slow build, but has some great moments mid-late season.

#1082652 The Dragon, the Knight and the Man in the Mouse Suit

Posted by Pasidon on 27 April 2018 - 08:12 AM in The Incubus Cradle

Legend.  That's some top quality top quality.  Love the Eel-Dragon.  Only criticism I have is for the Man in the Mouse Suit.  Right hand + arm is a bit rough.  You should do more work with thin hair so you can practice body form and shapes under hair.  You usually make very naked, smooth creatures, but some of your work with mange effects would look amazing.  Looks like that fancy university is paying off, at any rate.  Now stop playing hide-and-seek and show us more when you have it.
