Watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine last night.  I liked it.  I think it has a lot of potential.

Getting back to Fringe, where every conversation should invariably lead, everyone should watch Almost Human on Nov 4!!!

Yup, plan to.  Others I plan on trying:
Sep 24 - Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Oct 9 - Tomorrow People
Sep 26 - The Crazy Ones [Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar? even disliking sitcoms, the WTF factor has me curious]
2014 Feb 24 - Intelligence
2014 Jan - Helix
2014 - Believe [more JJ Abrams]

Edit:  Forgot to add, will also be watching 'Masters of Sex' a dramatization of the pioneering work of William Masters and Virginia Johnson that began to bring America (and much of the world) out of the dark ages with regards to sexuality.  For RiffTrax folk, there's very familiar faces: Michael Sheen, the effeminate Volturi from Twilight is Wm Masters; Lizzie Caplan, 'head-expoloding-girl' from Cloverfield is Virginia Johnson [and, less direct RiffTrax relationship: Nicholas D'Agosto, the guy who played Claire, the indestructible cheerleader,'s boyfriend in season 2 of Heroes is a close colleague of Dr. Masters].

Well... updates:
Dropping Sleepy Hollow.  I got more and more bored with it for the second and third episodes, rather than drawn into it more.  Not a good sign... so it's 'apocalypse' for this series for me.

Saw the first episode of Gellar and Williams' The Crazy Ones.  Since I don't find sitcoms funny, the only interest was to see how the two would interact (and see if their compatibility would be of interest).  While it's second episode is on tonight, I think it is unlikely I'll continue with it.  Call me 'Crazy', but they are out of it as well.  Not good if you don't even smile once during a sitcom.  [I've tried other sitcoms in recent years (Parks and Recreation, and this year, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and The Michael J. Fox Show with the same result: not a single smile.  Sitcoms and I just don't get along I guess, so my NOT liking these doesn't necessarily mean that others won't enjoy them.]

Saw the first episode of 'Masters of Sex'.  I haven't read a biog about the history of the two [Masters and Johnson, for those who haven't read the post directly above this one], but I wouldn't be surprised if this is fairly accurate (if a tad melodramatic at times), given the time of this bit of history (the 50s).  This one I will likely keep watching for the time being.

I suspect my continuing to watch 'Marvel's Agents of SHIELD' is likely understood, given the posts I've made in that thread.

I just don't enjoy network TV dramas anymore.  They are all just a gimmick with no decent writing.  They are good for a couple episodes then it gets boring.  24 episodes is also way too much.  They need to go quality over quantity.  That's why cable dramas are kicking their butts.

holy shit, i'm watching ground floor, and it's one of the worst sitcoms i've seen in a long time (which is saying a lot). it's got john mcginley basically being dr cox from scrubs, but without any depth or good writing.

Golfyblind... get to IMDB post haste! You can be the first to write a review of the show! (In my experience, pretty much everything produced for TBS is not "very funny" at all... save for Conan... which was really just inherited from somewhere else)

Is that where the term "post-haste" comes from?  Hastily posting things online?

TBS has basically taken the laugh track and translated it into written form.  Instead of laughing noises telling you something is supposed to be funny, they just have text do that.

@Midnight is a LOT of fun, captures a lot of the joy of shows like QI, Spicks 'n Specks, etc.

My wife & I keep yelling "POINTS!" whenever someone IRL says something funny.

Watching @Midnight quickly became a daily tradition when I come home from work in the early morning and Erica is still up.  The episode last week with Jonah Ray nearly broke us, I hope Chris has his Nerdist co-hosts on a lot.

I am in love with Brooklyn nine-nine. Andy Samberg/Andre Braugher are my favorite duo of ever!


The fact that Andy Samberg is one of the hottest comedy men out there certainly helps. Splooge.
