    JMRouse, I like Joss Whedon as much as the next guy but there comes a point when people give him too much praise. Buffy, for example, I felt ran a little too long. Angel, like you said, was cut too short. I'd say Dollhouse was somewhere in-between -- given the circumstances, I think it ended pretty well. And as an aside, I was a big fan of his run on Astonishing X-Men.

    I'm still not sure exactly what happened over the last couple of episodes of Deadwood.

    I guess I would like to have had more Twilight Zones and more Star Treks, but by the time they were cancelled they were pretty tired, so maybe it was for the best.

    Keen Eddie


    normally I disagree with you just as a matter of principle, but big +1 on the Keen Eddie.

    Also:

    Mr. & Mrs. Smith (far-fetched, but stupid fun Friday evening TV)
    The Pretender (although it never seemed to actually GO anywhere - Ms. Parker was the shiznit)

    hmmm, this is harder than I thought. Perhaps I should actually watch this 'TV' thing once in a while.

    I will also throw in for your consideration.... The Critic. That show was so funny!

    +1...."IT STINKS!"

    *Arrested Development (as mentioned)
    *Better Off Ted

    No mentions for Duckman, huh? I loved that show and lament its demise.

    Action

    Was that the one on USA?

    Absolutely!

    Andy Richter Controls the Universe

    I almost cried when they got rid of this gem.

    I'm probably the only person who thought Grounded For Life was funny.

    Yes. Yes you are.

    Action was on Fox, not USA.

    Did Rubicon really get canceled? I couldn't get into it but I thought it was doing OK.

    BUFFY should have ended on season 5 when it was originally planned to. I agree the last couple seasons are weak. Part of the reason for this was Whedon was preoccupied with ANGEL and FIRELFY at that point. Plus the budget was drastically cut and it showed.

    I couldn't get into DOLLHOUSE. Something about it just didn't grab me.

    His run on Astonishing X-Men was amazing. I don't think anyone has done the team as well as he did. Plus it had John Cassaday's art which was a complete win. I'm liking the new BUFFY comic, but think the current arc has been running too long. It's fun, but all over the place and a little too crazy sometimes.

    Is this all time ... or this season? I doubt I watch five TV episodes (of all shows combined) in a year!

    And there's one more, but I'm completely blanking on the name.

    Found it!

    Pointman with Jack Scalia http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110855/

    Investment banker goes to prison and when he gets out helps people with their problems.

    Anyone else remember this show?

    So you probably shouldn't comment in this thread then, except to point out that your intellect is completely unfulfilled by modern television.
