If @leafdoctor had a beard, he'd be far too sexy and distract from @novapbs

Summer 2015 Wrap-up

The new shows have already started. I want to sum up the summer before we get too deep in the fall.

The Best
Wayward Pines. This show was a great surprise. It starts off as a mystery with missing persons in a small town with a crazy nurse and a psychotic sheriff. They mystery is explained relatively early on the the genre shifts. I really enjoy shows with genre shifts. They are very hard to pull off. This could have another season but if it doesn't, no big deal. It was a great ten episodes.

The Second Best
Dark Matter and Killjoys. The Syfy channel has returned to fun space shows. Dark Matter started strong and continued with great characters and great mysteries. Killjoys had a slow arc that really delivered in the final episode. Both get second seasons. I highly recommend both shows.

The Also Goods
Under The Dome. The final season moved real fast with a Matrix world, alien queens, fast growing alien babies, corporate conspiracies, a fake apocalypse, and the dome coming down. Big Jim winning in the end was a little disappointing but I like where the characters ended up. It ended with a possibility for more seasons but I'm not upset with the closure.

The Last Ship. The problem with post-apoc shows is everything sucks and never gets better. Fortunately this isn't true for The Last Ship. The season ended with a new President getting sworn in at the interim Capitol in St. Louis. 

Suits. This show is begging to suffer with what I call 'Dynasty Syndrome'. This is when all the characters only can about gaining control of the one company, or in this case the firm, when they would be more successful just moving on. Hardman wanted to regain control. Harvey is forced to leave. And Mike is finally found out. They need to sort things out.

The Bads
True Detective. The thing about this season is it was Film Noir but they never told anyone. Even more than just Film Noir, this was really trying to be a remake of Chinatown with the rail corridor standing in for the water wars. The big gun battle was stunning but the over complex plot and unhappy ended really turned me off. Let's see if next season is any better.

Complications. The show about a doctor who gets mixed up in a gang war got boring real quick. I bailed after two episodes.

Proof. After the first 30 seconds, I lost interest.

The Reality Shows
Big Brother. This is the first time I’ve watched this show even though this is season 17. I loved and loved to hate the house guests. Vanessa was a great game player and if she had won the final comp, she would have taken it. I loved watching the After Hours feeds with Meg’s game Pot Ball with the Glory Hole. That is what they called the smallest high point target which they tossed balls of foil at.

Bachelor in Paradise. This show is really silly and I’m glad they aren’t taking it too seriously anymore. The cute sitcom style opening with the cast mugging for the camera was the best. Tanner is fucking adorable and I’m glad he found love. Joe is a dangerous criminal. The Bachelor community should be very careful around him.

I Am Cait. This show is important. I loved watching Caitlyn come to understand the community she is unavoidably representing. I look forward to future seasons

My favorite game is guessing the country highlighted on @LastWeekTonight #CaspianSea



 

#Sense8 is the best @Netflix show ever, probably the best show of the year

The season finale was amazing. The first conversation between Lito and Will was the best. I need to watch the whole season again.

Cancelled Shows 2015

Here are the shows that ended this year after more than one season.

NBC
Parks and Recreation - This show had a scheduled ending after 7 seasons. The final season was in the future and the final episode showed the full future history of all our beloved characters. I still have the whole season on my DVR to rewatch over the summer

Parenthood - I stopped watching a few seasons ago. This was a scheduled ending.


ABC
Revenge - Even though it wasn't an official final season it was kinda like they knew it was the final season as soon as they killed off Daniel. It was a good ending that could have possibly led to another season but didn't have to. This is the photo I posted four years ago with some augmentation.

Resurrection - I didn't pick it up in the second season.



CBS
The Millers - Sean Hayes was added to this season but they still cancelled it quickly at the start of the season.

CSI - This ended this year? How did I not know about this? It was on for 15 seasons and I never watched one.

The Mentalist - The rip-off of Psych that I never watched. Still don't care.


FOX
The Following - I only watched the first episode and it was terrible. I can't believe it got a second season before it was cancelled.


The CW
Hart of Dixie - I love Rachel Bilson but I never watched one episode.

2014 Shows Getting a Second Season

NBC
The Mysteries of Laura
What I said last year: Grace is back now a NYPD detective and single mom.  Probably yes.
What I say now: I didn't have time for this in the fall and I don't regret it. It's just no for me.


ABC
How To Get Away With Murder
What I said last year: Law students and their professor is also a high end defense attorney. Looks like the plot of Legally Blonde.  Probably no.
What I say now: This was a hit from the first episode. I don't know how they will continue to be her students as she teaches a first year law school class.

black-ish
What I said last year: The father of a rich black family is worried his family is loosing their blackness.  Probably no.
What I say now: This was a hit it just never interested me.

Secrets and Lies
What I said last year: Ryan Phillip is a dad accused of killing a neighborhood boy.  Julliete Lewis is the detective investigating.  Looks good but I’m not sure how they can stretch this into a series. Probably yes.
What I say now: This came during a busy mid-season so I never watched this. The busy summer schedule means its probably not going to be a catch-up show.

American Crime
What I said last year: Another show about one murder.  The victim is white and suspect is Latino with lots of racial discussion.  Also, how could this stretch into a series.  Probably yes.
What I say now: I regret not making time for this show. I hope to catch up over the summer

Galavant
What I said last year: No joke this is a musical comedy about a medieval knight.  This will be an amazing flop of which I will watch every episode.  Definitely yes.
What I say now: This was great and I'm super surprised it was renewed. I'm in for the long haul.

Fresh Off The Boat
What I said last year: An Asian family is running a cowboy steak restaurant in 1990’s Orlando.  The 90’s setting is what make this look good.  Probably yes.
What I say now: I have most of the episodes on my DVR and I haven't decided if I want to pick this show up for the summer.

Agent Carter
What I said last year: Didn't say anything
What I say now: The limited run (8 episodes) was brilliant. It looks like they might be doing only another 8 episodes next year. This is another brilliant idea. Not everything needs to be the traditional network series.


CBS
Madam Secretary
What I said last year: A former CIA agent turned college professor becomes Secretary of State.  Looks really good plus Bebe Neuwirth is in it.  Definitely yes.
What I say now: I just didn't have time in my super busy Sunday schedule to watch this. Had it been on a different night I probably would have watched this.

Scorpion
What I said last year: A genius hacker and his startup friends get drafted by the CIA to solve problems. The problem I have is the first problem isn't a problem. The first episode is about trying to get the air traffic control software back online at LAX so the planes don't crash. This assumes the the pilots can neither fly without computers or be reached by radio.  Bad writing from the start. Definitely no.
What I say now: How did this get a full season much less a second season. I weep for CBS.

CSI: New Orleans
What I said last year: I haven't watch one episode from the franchise so I'm not starting now. Definitely no.
What I say now: No thank you.


FOX
Gotham
What I said last year: It's Smallville but with Batman.  This will either be amazing or the worst thing on TV.  Regardless, definitely yes.
What I say now: This got bad and boring super fast. Do we really need another Batman? The answer is no.

Last Man on Earth
What I said last year: Will Forte is the last man on Earth.  Why? Undetermined.  Is there a last woman on Earth? Undetermined. Definitely yes
What I say now: Phil is a chronic liar and I almost dropped this show. There were a lot of twists and it was hard to watch at times but I think it ended well. I will watched next season just to see Jason Sudeikis as Phil's brother.

Empire
What I said last year: It's Dynasty but with a black family and a music empire.  It even has the disappointing gay son. Definitely no.
What I say now: This was a huge hit. I plan on watching the first season over the summer. "Tell me why I shouldn't throw this drink in your bitch ass face?"


The CW
The Flash
What I said last year: I think this is my top pick for the fall.  They previewed Barry Allen with a two episode arc on Arrow this season.  Superhero shows are the best when there is a good support team behind them and The Flash has one.  Definitely yes.
What I say now: This show was amazing. The first season was so dense I don't know where they can go from here.

Jane The Virgin
What I said last year: A virgin gets accidentally artificially inseminated.  Why does this exist?  Definitely no no no.
What I say now: A friend of mine said this was they best new show of the year. I do plan on catching up on this show over the summer.

iZombie
What I said last year: Didn't say anything
What I say now: Looks good but I just don't think I have the time for another show. I hope to put this on my summer list.
