    Whilst I agree that it doesn't have to be I would say lot of the best comedy IS about something, there's an essential joke or dynamic or statement built into it. That's what makes it memorably funny. I guess I regard a lot of McFarlane's work as disposable. I was a huge pre-cancellation Family guy fan but going back it's not nearly the classic I thought it was at the time.
    edit: to clarify my thoughts, theres nothing wrong with off the cuff agendaless comedy. That's MST3K in a nutshell. It's just that, if you make a science fiction show it needs to be making as larger point about science fiction beyond 'funny star trek door joke #6' or weird alien sex gags. Again, see Galaxy Quest or Red Dwarf. Red Dwarf is damn near profound at points.

    I agree he's talented, but his bits and style are so hackneyed right now. It's just nostalgia and observational stuff, his comedy isn't really about anything.

    Pass.
    It's hardly Galaxy Quest. And Seth McFarlane ran out of jokes years ago. The ones had were good, he just burned through them too fast.

    Could be interesting. I hope it's successful.

    I had a real soft spot for Crazy/beautiful at the time. 
    But yeah, Interview, Bring it on and a modern one. Cruise and Pitt don't need Interview for their episodes.
    Oh Eliza...(music plays)...

    Alas, I'm not that clever.

    Iron fist was a good show. The early reviews were way off base. Not like it changed my life but it was one of the more consistently good shows, no outrageous highs but none of the lows the DD2 and Luke Cage fell into in the second half.
    This looks good. I'm sufficiently hyped.

    Well yes. The show pace is literally dictated by the pattern of raiding on the English coast. Each raid is multiple episodes per season and requires similar lead up and recover periods. It's what drives the entire thing. I was being very literal.

    Loving Vikings. Just good old fashioned Game of Thrones methadone with a slow but not ponderous pace dictated by seasonal raiding cycles. It's not really into its sexploitaton either, sex is there but doesn't feel like a focal point for the show. It's mostly just about culture clashes, responsibility and violence.
    It's not a can't miss show but it does what it does well, and to a higher standard than I expected.

    Haha! Vindication! It's 2-1 Kellen, a result that wins me the three stages of debate about that match.
    Not gonna lie, Clumsy is now on my ipod.

    Glad you're all OK. Sudden car faults whilst in motion can be terrifying.
