    Definitely, top of the situation comedy genre imo, and some very memorable characters, particularly Niles which was a family favourite.

    Re: General TV Discussion

    Anyone watching 'Legends' with Sean Bean? I've been told the "#DontKillSeanBean" has been on twitter. I've watched the first episode and it was okay, and Sean Bean is one hell of an actor, shame the show feels a tad formulaic and follows the usual troupes for the genre. I'll admit I've only seen the one episode but I'll watch a few more to see if I'm right or wrong also;

    A slight bugbear, where the Founding Father is about to torture Russell he makes the comment about files etc can be made up/manipulated but then after they found his medical file that collaborates his story they believe it, even when they have to do a second search and it magically shows up. I also don't see why after Russell died without breaking that wasn't good enough either and I assume we the audience can't fully understand a bad guy unless he kills someone by his own hands or ordered a henchman

    Love Frasier, one of my favourite episodes is the one with Patrick Stewart

    "And i'm Daphne, Niles' wife."
    "No..."

    No he isn't - he only acts from the shoulders up and with the same accent, even when he is supposed to be French.

    Yeah hes been terrible in all his roles on stage and screen, TNG and Xmen. He was awarded Knight Bachelor of the Order of the British Empire in the 2010 Queen's New Year's Honours List for his services to drama.(June 2, 2010) Was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. He was awarded the Laurence Olivier Theatre Award in 1994 (1993 season) for Best Entertainment Award for his adaptation and staged performance of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" at the Old Vic.
    He was awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2000 Queen's Millennium Honours list for his services to acting and the cinema.

    Yeah they give all that out to every joe bloggs on the street, hes nothing special.......

    Into season #2 of Frasier now. Yus, that show is rather enjoyable. I also love how nowadays this wouldn't get made. Ever.

    Its also pretty intelligent for an American sitcom and Frasier has a slightly eccentric appeal as a person who has an air of English middle class about him. All the characters are endearing in some way, glad you enjoyed it Sigur

    I recently watched Dollhouse.
    That Joss Whedon guy really knows what he's doing.
    And when I thought it couldn't get any better...enter Alan Tudyck. Awesome.

    ^ Cabin In The Woods is the single best thing Whedon has done, if you haven't seen it then go watch it. Excellent film.


    Just finishing the Strain season 1, things are heating up.

    He got those gongs because of his support of the Labour Party, not for his acting.

    Very few people in his home town of Huddersfield have a good word for him.

    It was a brilliant show and very close to British farce.

    My sympathies. It was a dreadful show which should never have been given a second season.

    The first pilot was rejected and the last episode of Season 1 - Epitaph was not screened in the US on Fox in its initial run. However, Epitaph was easily the best episode of the show (Epitaph part II was ok) and if Dollhouse had been a series set in that time line it would have been a better show.

    Because a second season of Dollhouse was ordered, Fox cancelled the far superior Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and of course the second season of Dollhouse had even worse viewing figures than the first and was cancelled.

    BTW most of the writing on Dollhouse was done by Joss's brother and sister in law who are also responsible for the execrable Marvels Agents of Shield - another show which shouldn't have been given a second season based purely on the collapse in its viewing figures during its first season.

    I don't like agreeing with Wintermute* on TV shows, but, he's pretty spot on with MAoS and most of Dollhouse season 2.

    I'm afraid I have to disagree. I found it overly predictable (it spoils itself in the opening credits if you're watching closely) and nothing special.

    I did like Dollhouse, mainly because of Enver DJokai (AKA "Victor") and Alan Tudyk. Eliza Dushku annoyed me a bit, and the willingness of characters to switch sides got kind of offputting.

    But I still liked it. As opposed to "Agents of Shield", which got me to watch 2 episodes and then I decided to ignore it going forward.

    I've not watched Dollhouse but I know Fox only gave it a second season because it was afraid of it becoming a second 'Firefly'. As for AOS it wont get pulled simply because Disney own the channel its on and they'd rather throw all the other shows under there tracks just to keep the Marvel train rolling.

    Ah, that's too bad. I just loved Bradley Whitford from West Wing and his Mermen obsession. And the voting pool the workers had going

    I found it's story to be something out of a weekly sci fi show, like stargate/doctor who/sliders.

    It was meant to be a deconstruction of horror films as well as a bit of fun. I loved it.

    Exactly. Fran Kranz is now my favourite character in a comedy horror movie. He was awesome as the stoner guy!


    Back OT: Just finished the season finale of HBO's The Leftovers.

    Anyone else watch this show? Lots of interesting ideas hete, and Justin Theroux is aweome, but the series suffers from serious Lost-itis.
