    4. Have you ever watched a zeitgeisty show a long time after it finished? What did you think?

      I live in the UK and Channel 4 got the rights to Seinfeld. I never saw them before, so I'm watching them all now. It's weird, because people make (still!) a lot of noise about the show, and so far...

      I live in the UK and Channel 4 got the rights to Seinfeld. I never saw them before, so I'm watching them all now.

      It's weird, because people make (still!) a lot of noise about the show, and so far (although I'm only 5 episodes in) I don't get it.

      I had a similar experience when I re-watched Allie McBeal -- I enjoyed it the first time around, but the second time it just felt tedious.

      I watched Lost a long time after that finished, and I mostly enjoyed it, and I could understand why at the time it was so popular.

      So, I was wondering, have you watched any of the zeitgeisty shows long after the buzz died down, and what did you think of them?

    28. Meta - Should we have topics for shows or episodes?

      So I've been putting in topics for each episode of The Good Place for a couple weeks, and it's been a little slow but reasonable amounts of activity. But for week to week shows in the future, would it be more appropriate to have one big thread made for the season premiere and bump that on a weekly basis and enforce marking posts when a particular episode happened, so we can better track discussion and continue threads of discussion across weeks, or would that just kinda be a mess?

    29. Star Trek fans: what's your position on the amount of technological mumbo jumbo?

      I'm (re)watching Star Trek: The Next Generation, and after a few episodes I started to tune out every time they detail how some specific solution is possible. There's little care with consistency, everything is bent to fit the story. "Oh, I get it, if I reverse the trusters and focus the beams using a microwaved non-Euclidian logarithmic abstraction, we can get the shields back and fix the time distillation!".

      I know Star Trek is soft sci-fi, but come on! If it's all meaningless, at least keep it to a minimum. Focus on the interesting bits: the politics, the culture, the philosophical exploration, the juicy paradoxes.

      I still love Star Trek and I definitely don't want it to become hard sci-fi, but sometimes it feels like /r/VXJunkies/...

      We have had some great discussions on ~movies on the semi-regular Movie Monday Free Talk Threads (latest one from yesterday here).

      @NecrophiliaChocolate asked in yesterday's Movie thread if he could discuss television shows, so I figured it would be a good opportunity to set up another regular ~TV free for all thread.

      So Tilderinos, have you watched any TV shows recently you want to discuss? Any shows you want to recommend or are hyped about? Feel free to discuss anything here.

      I'll go first.

      I'm currently rewatching Veronica Mars right now and find myself really admiring many of her traits. She is witty, sarcastic, intelligent, and capable. I think what sets her apart from many other female protagonists is that she is not a martyr. If someone wrongs her, she will stand up for herself and in most cases get even. Her need to "get even" probably isn't actually a great personality trait, but I find it kind of refreshing.

      Does anyone else wish they were more like a certain character on tv?

      IMDb YouTube Teaser

      So far I haven't been able to see anything except what's visible on YouTube. Like all of his content, the show has SBC put people into bizarre situations. But it seems to me this show is more about the bizarre world we're already living in than it is how strange SBC can act.

      For me, its Arrested Development and South Park. I love AD for its meta-humour and inside jokes. However, I liked only the first three seasons. Here is a great video explaining what makes AD different. South Park for great satire and taking the humourous approach on complex topics. This video explains better than I could.

      So, which are your favorite comedy tv shows and why do you recommend them?
