Re: What are you watching???

I just finished the entire show "G.I. Joe: Renegades." It was basically "The A-Team" meets "G.I. Joe"...down to the stories and the opening credits.

I'll be honest, nothing, yeah, nothing on TV, no series at all, only the old ones. I personally dislike most of the stuff going on TV those days. I'll stick with the old series and some new movies such as Captain Philips.

Thinking... Did they cancel this excellent cartoon because it's license was muddied by those awful movies?

Based on this article, it sounds like the second G.I. Joe film had a similar plot - 'plot' is used loosely, of course - with the tentative second season for the animated series. So, the entire show was scrapped.

I've been watching Fringe, Stargate Atlantis and Gilmore Girls and it's amazing to watch just how quickly they go down hill in the later seasons.

Thank's Joel.

...

Fringe was about their budget being slashed. Gilmore Girls was about the producer walking. And Atlantis got more perfect every year.

No. Just no.
Fringe was great for three seasons, the 4th season I remember ditching, and the 5t seasons didn't address and issues that actually needed to be, so there is no conclusion to "Why?"

Gilmore Girls became bad overnight in season 5 with the Rory and Dean BS, then Logan, and became almost unwatchable in season 6 with the Luke storyline. All of this before the creator walked with the biggest "FU" ending in season 6.

Atlantis got worse every year with the show not having a clue what they were doing, killing off characters left and right for no reason, then bringing then back randomly. Replicators? Evil Asgard? Girl Teal'c being pregnant and that horrid storyline. None of that was needed. Making Sam take command of Atlantis even tough Amanda Tapping wanted to leave. I almost made a topic about how bad the choices for that show were.

Esquire is marathoning an older season of American Ninja Warrior.

I didn't know that in the early seasons, they did the whole "Contestants living together and being eliminated one by one" thing. I'm so happy they nixed that. It's so much better just showing qualification runs.

I have no idea what happen in the final episode of Gilmore Girls... That doesn't sound right. How could I not know that? The fervour with which I held this show as my dearest love for half a decade yet... Pffft.

I didn't follow Lorelai to Parenthood, and Liza has become too thin on How To Get Away with Murder, what the hell was America thinking letting Bunheads get cancelled?

AMERRRICA!@!!!!!

Little Alexis did a sitcom that was shelved and did not play in America. It's currently being uploaded to the internet every week after it plays in New Zealand.

...

I am half way through season 4 of Alias.

I only watched the last episode in season 7 as I gave up fully on the show in season six after Rory was a bitch for WAAAYYYY to long, and Luke had a daughter, and don't get me started with the Christopher mess.

All of that happened before the creator of the show left.

The finale had a big going away party for Rory who decided to work as an intern covering Obama's run. I enjoyed it.
