Dave Maynar (or anybody), are you watching the new season of Justified? Has it gotten sillier/more soap opera-like, or has it always been like that, and I just now happened to notice?
I have not watched any of the new season. It has always been a little silly though. I still liked the other 4 seasons.
We flew through the first four seasons, and I'm enjoying this one every bit as much so far. (Boyd Crowder may be my most favorite television character ever.) I've just been trying to decide if it's gone further this year, or if my perception of it has changed. If that makes any sense.
I found it more interesting that American Horror Story is a miniseries. I realize they have a new plot every season, but they recycle plenty of the cast across seasons.
in my mind, miniseries were always only like 3-4 or maybe rarely 5 shows.
At the very least, it should be one season. Band of Brothers was 10 episodes, but it always meant to just be those 10 episodes with nothing more. I feel that counts, but AHS has been going for three damn seasons. That's not a mini-series.
I think they do it to have a better chance at winning. IMO AHS is cheating. I remember back when people weren't sure if True Detective would be entered in miniseries or drama series. They chose to be counted with the top drama shows. I admire that.

Well the best season of TV this year was the Americans and they don't get nods for best drama, lead actor, or lead actress is the one thing that actually made me mad.
I'm annoyed by: The Big Bang and Modern Family love in comedy Love for Downton Abbey and House of Cards in drama. No directing nom for my boy Rian Johnson for the "Ozymandias" episode of Breaking Bad was absurd Mad Men continues to get shafted and thats to be expected. This year I'm fine with Nick Offerman not getting a nod for Parks N Rec. Show took a step back this year.
