What are you watching?
« on: August 19, 2008, 04:42:17 PM »
Ok. Since a lot of people (by a lot I mean myself) watch their TV shows on DVD. i figured I would start a thread. Post what tv show you are currently watching on DVD. So we don't have to start another thread to talk about these shows.


Currently I am watching Pysch Season 1, Get Smart Season 1, and The Sopranaos Season 1. Pysch is my fave, but I they all rock

I recently finished re-watching Psych Season One, as I was showing it to a friend who had never heard of the show. We're moving on to Season Two shortly.

I was watching Lost on DVD (damn is that thing addictive), but once I realized that ABC's website has all the episodes available via streaming, we stopped getting them from Netflix.

I'm still digging the heck out of Moonlighting Series 3.  They just had their "clips" show, and that was hilarious.

For some bizarre reason, I"ve rewatched the entire run of The Critic. Ah, Lovitz-y goodness.

I hadn't seen this for a few years and I was struck by how much the show resembles early episodes of Family Guy, with all of the random cut-aways. However, most of the cutaways at least had something to do with what was going on, unlike the show written by manatees. Still quite funny though.

So I've been watching a lot of Star Trek Voyager episodes lately...I've made my way to the end of season three and the start of season four this past week.

This is the time when they introduce 7 of 9...and Tom and B'elanna's romance...wow, these are probably the best episodes of the series. No philosophical moral dilemma's that are boring to watch. Pure scifi and action and lots of fun in these episodes.

I think I've just watched the best two star trek episodes I've ever watched in my life, I know...you'd think that these episodes would be on Next Gen...or even the original series...not Voyager!! The show that star trek fans call blasphemy...but its true.

So the two episodes were a two parter. They were called, "Year of Hell." They are halfway through season four. These two episodes take place during one year obviously...and it boldly goes where I've always wanted Star Trek Voyager to go, watch the ship Voyager get worse and worse as they traverse very dangerous areas of space. The ship was literally falling apart in this episode...

This episode goes into areas that Star Trek normally doesn't do well, they are cool ideas, but they usually are butchered by the star trek writers. I'm talking about episodes involving Time Travel. But in these episodes...it was handled masterfully, you watch as the villain wipes out thousands of civilizations, in the name of bringing his people back to the way they were.

Most of you know what I think about villains...I love villains, if a story has an interesting villain, I'm there. That is why star wars frustrates me (anakin ruining Darth Vader), and the dark knight makes me so happy (two amazing villians). Well this episode surprised me...because it had a very interesting villain, he wasn't original, in fact he was based off of Anarrax from 20,000 leagues under the sea (his name is even Annarax in the episode), but he was masterfully acted by Kurtwood Smith, and the direction and writing in this episode made him fantastic.

I can't believe I'm making a post this long about a star trek episode...I'm not even a big fan of star trek...and voyager is blasphemy, but, seriously, I loved these episodes. Watch them if you get the chance. They were awesome.

It's a decent episode.  However, near the end , it uses what i like to call the "Huge Reset Button", which Voyager used SO many times.  Not matter what happended to the crew, at the end of the episode where the button was pushed, everything went back to normal.  Occasionally they would allow things to affect the crew, but more often than not.....that button got pressed.

Exactly. I like to call them the 'it never really happened' episodes. Almost every sci-fi show in the world has done an episode like this at least once, but the Star Trek franchise has done SO MANY of them that they should be legally banned from doing any more ever!

I decided to get Home Movies from Netflix because I've always heard about it, but never took the time to check the show out. Hilarious stuff. Working my way through season one at the moment.

I'm currently rewatching QI (currently on season 4), and Bullshit (currently on season 1).

I've also been catching a couple of episodes of Voyager on TV recently. My favourite episode of all time is still the two part Year of Hell. Even though it's a "push the button" episode, the relationship that develops between Seven and Tuvok after he's blinded is really fascinating and interesting. Plus it amuses me to no end to think about Red destroying entire civilizations... you know he would put his foot right up that planet's ass, if he could! :D

Yeah...they did do that, and I was disappointed that they did (I was looking forward to seeing episodes of them fixing the ship back up). But it was still exciting to see Janeway crash Voyager into the side of ship. That was cool.

I finished watching the first season of Doogie Howser a little while back, and while I thought it was pretty great, there were a couple of things that bugged me.  Vinnie really annoyed me to being with, but he grew on me eventually, but what really stuck with me was the god awful theme tune.  Soooo bad....  His girlfriend Wanda is pretty hot though.   :)
