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.

What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.
I have never watched American Horror Story, or Breaking Bad, or Walking Dead, or Sons of Anarchy. shame me
Well, if it's because you do other things instead of watching television, then good for you. If it's because you are too busy watching something else, then shame on you. Except, not really, because it's television, and if you are going to watch television, you should watch whatever the hell you want to watch.
We actually just broke down and started American Horror Story last night. It's entertaining so far, but good grief, there are some cheesy moments.
I feel about Sons of Anarchy what the person a couple posts ago said about American Horror Story. I'm so over it. But it's so close to the end, and I already paid for the Season Pass, so I'm determined to make it through the last few episodes. I just really don't like not knowing how things end.
Still baffled as to how the whole final Black Lodge made it on TV. That shit is pretty intense. Awesome though. The final episode makes all the crap of season 2 worth it. Also, season 2 was a lot less lackluster this time around, still not great, but not as unbearable as I remembered.
"A prequel television series to the cult comedy classic Wet Hot American Summer is officially in the works. 'Virtually the entire ensemble cast' from the original 2001 film, including Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, and H. Jon Benjamin, are said to appearing in the eight-episode series, which will air on Netflix. These actors will reportedly be playing high-school-age characters (despite the fact many are currently in their 40s)."
