it is all improv for the most part. not the improv of a stage sketch comedy show but more like Christopher Guest films.

orange is the new black season 3 has improved over season 2 i think

season 2 was a fucking cartoon-- typical jenji kohan move to turn a great idea into a caricature (e.g. "weeds" which started awesome & ended so pointless & irrelevant--but yes i watched all like a sucker)

the ship seems to have been righted for s3-- good for her/the studio/whoever, so far. though s.5 is about to start lol-- so i'm behind here a couple of seasons

I strongly disliked season 2. Season 3 got pretty damn stupid too if you ask me. You can see where the "true story" element kind of falls off a cliff and the "make more seasons because it's successful" but takes over. The characters start to act like dramatized versions of themselves (which, of corse, they are.. lol.. but now they seem like dramatizations of a dramatization), and the reality of the story sort of peels away.

I think Season 4 is pretty good. Probably the best all around since season 1.

I've been watching this for the past few days. Took me forever to finally finish the first season (started it when it came out, got sick of all the rapey stuff and didn't watch the last 2 episodes until ... last week. Hah.

 


So much rape!!! Like, gobs of rape and violent sex shit. Blech!! Entertaining enough story, but this show is definitely some low-ass hanging fruit in terms of actual quality.

Hope they do a Cthulu season. They're hashing through all the horror tropes, season by season, and what better way to end it than with the most evil creature in the history of this or any universe? Fuck yeah Lovecraft!

yeah, I can't remember what season I tried to watch, but it was the Richard Speck story, I got about 10 minutes into it, then tossed it.

Right now, we're watching and enjoying Humans Season 2.

I'd much rather look at these eyes......

Richard Speck? Wasn't that in the first season? Some backstory based on the whatshisname doctor and killing nurses?

If so I bailed on that shit too, like I said. Too much motherfucking rape and outright disgusting shit for me to willingly take in. I returned to that season, eventually finished it and then went on to the second, but so far I've needed many breaks from that as well. Been watching it with the girlfriend, who really likes it and somehow isn't bothered by rape scenes like I am, and I've just said "fuck this" and left the room to go do other shit a number of times.

I worked from home to get away from that shit. On a *Sunday* when... wh-when... when it wasn't strictly necessary and I totally could have done it all the next day!!!

Oh, the American horror!!!

i never have liked the main character though her story was interesting on s1. her face annoys the fuck out of me.

i'm enjoying so far (9 episodes as of last night) the various background stories and the skewering of business culture, which is fucking brilliant.

"we need to get law books so they can work on their cases"
"why would you do that...?"

ah ha ha ha ha ha ha

fucking human warehousing investment opportunities

i know what you're thinking: betsy devoss

i know what you're thinking: please keep the politics out of this thread

but how can i? the tv is too good and it gets me to dream about it

I may just be a victim of the hype train, but I really dug this first season of Westworld.

Yeah, Piper has a Skeletor thing going on in the face area for sure. The characters I really like are Alex, the toothless faith-healer chick (after she stops being insane), Poussť and Gloria.

But sorry, you can't make me talk about Betsy DeVoss. Well, not here anyway.

Watched most of this in a single day Wednesday. I had to get up at 4:30 to drive across half the state for an assignment, so my work day was done when I got back at about 2. Girlfriend was home sick, so we plowed right through this. Just one episode to go.

So far it's my favorite season by fucking leaps and bounds. Only ONE actual rape scene! Plus it had a nice female empowerment vibe that was easier for my male with absentee father sensibilities.

Still, there's some gross shit in every season of this show. Non-premium tv has gotten SUPER fucked up since I was a kid. Yowza.

my wife has tried to watch every season of AMS, and I've tried to watch a few. We always quit before the mid-point. Just something about that show. Can never keep us into it.

She watched all the Orange seasons, I watched some random eps. She loved it. I liked it.

Sev, are you talking about my girl Taryn Manning? I'm really a fan of her. I think she's a very under-appreciated actress.

I'm watching season 1 of all these CW DC shows right now. I know I know, I'm watching them "out of order." Frankly, I'm sick of the whole "binging" TV shows thing. I miss when things were just on and you watched stuff when it was on. So whatever. It's wrong, but I'm happy.

Arrow is... pretty good. Flash is better. Supergirl, I love. Legends Of Tomorrow feels like a slightly higher than SyFi budget take on Avengers/Guardians Of The Galaxy that feels a lot sillier than the other shows.

I'm also on ep8 of Luke Cage; about to start season 2 of Gotham; and am in the middle of "volume 1" of the Batman animated series right now.

Phew. Lot of stuff. Plus, re-watching Dawson's Creek w/ my wife... only like I don't know, 6 eps in?

ha ha skeletor-- yeah it's that but not just that -- the personality of her character annoys the shit out of me. anyway yeah i like alex too, and the junkie chick, and crazy eyes, and janeway, and the hairdresser lady, and a bunch of others except for the biblethumpers yujjj or the pregnant lady & her psycho mother.

and no i'm not trying to get you to talk about politics here. but this season takes such a critical look at the notion that "private business does it better". business has a fiduciary duty to its shareholders to maximize profit; government, however flawed, can ruled by different goals (e.g. prisoner rehabilitation, as caputo's efforts illustrate). this season is making such a great job of showing precisely that. but okay i'll stop right there.

I won't.

It was different for me going into it because I was like "OMG! Taryn Manning's on this show???" I love her. So I couldn't be annoyed.

I can't watch that shit. My wife loves the Orange is new Black, but I just don't care.....

I swore off of any TV shows that dealt with police, doctors, lawyers, courts, etc as their main plot devices. I find them to be propaganda to fool the masses of sheep that the legal system, medical system, and police system are A-OK, and that they do their job, and that they save people, and that they FIGHT CRIME, but it is all BULLSHIT. I will not buy into their shit.

Baha!

Yeah, of course I knew Alex was Donna from That '70s Show, even though I'm pretty sure that was the worst show of all time. It's one salvation was that it may have taught a couple people how to correctly place an apostrophe when abbreviating decades/years.

And yeah I've seen Pornstache and Piper in lots of shit.

Weird that it took me so long to figure out Janeway though. When that show came on, my father used to refer to her as "Captain Babeway," which baffled me but whatever.
