Out of the Blue

I still have Archer in the DVR and I also just got both seasons of Frisky Dingo, so I'm set for an Adam Reed marathon, though since Frisky Dingo episodes are all of 11 minutes, this marathon is more like a 5K. I'm ready for some TV enjoyment, as we decided to further exercise our Arrested Development by checking out Up All Night the other night, which was horrible... Will Arnett was great as a secondary character, but unless this show improves by leaps and bounds I think it may be time to give up on the idea that he can help carry a show in a primary role (though I guess blaming him for the crappy writing in this and Running Wilde is a little unfair, maybe he just needs a new agent).

My top 3 fav Krieger quotes

- Your authority is not recognized in Fort KickAss

Easily the best Krieger quote... On the short list for best quotes from the show.

- And *I* love that I have an erection

Even better in full:

And *I* love that I have an erection... that doesn't involve homeless people.

Season 1 of Archer is quite easily the most quotable season of any TV show I've ever seen. Season 2 is good as well, but the one-liners in S1 are just insane.

Krieger had some of the best random quotes, but all of them have such great lines.

And remember that Frank Cannon carried a snub-nosed revolver. I hate when people violate Cannon cannon canon.

Yes. Yes, it really was. It rewrote practically 90% of existing cannon, it totally and utterly fucked up scientific progression throughout the timeline, and it was just plain fucking bad.
OK, yes... cannon was out the window. An Enterprise before Pike's, retconning Vulcans a little bit, the Expanse, a couple of mini Death Stars, etc. And a bunch of the story archs were rubbish.

But I liked Archer/Tripp/Malcom and a few others. T'Paul was just eye candy but at least had some character development.

I liked the final season, as well as the stand-alones scattered throughout the series. Some of the Expanse episodes were also alright and might as well have been stand-alones.

Was it GREAT? NO
Was it alright? Sure

But it's all just opinion... even 99.9% of people agreeing on something subjective is just opinion.

Every time I see "Archer" I always think of Captain Archer, and bile comes rushing up my throat. Damn Enterprise is bad...

I don't get the hate. Sure, it wasn't the best Trek to date but it wasn't THAT bad.

Yes. Yes, it really was. It rewrote practically 90% of existing canon, it totally and utterly fucked up scientific progression throughout the timeline, and it was just plain fucking bad.

And as it stands, I liked Scott Bakula as Capt Archer. The writing wasn't that great, and the underlining story-arc wasn't exactly well thought out... but the characters were OK.

No, they were not. Really.

Here, this enterprising soul does a way better job than me explaining why it was so utterly fucking horrible.

I'm pretty confident that this would not even be in my top 100 all-time run-on sentences.

I realized I left out the name of the other show, so I've helped the situation by adding words.

I'm proud of ya, Blue.

Wow, nothing says awesome user experience on the web like waiting 10 seconds for a page to load so you can look at 2 images, then clicking a next button and waiting 10 seconds for the next 2 images. I would love to see their analytics reports to see what percentage of users actually make it past page 2...

This is exactly why I don't bother with the news (other than here; good job Blue : )...

The media plays on your emotions by bringing up irrelevance (previous death/illness/blahblah), interviews the supervisor to make him look like a bad guy, etc...

Some of the facts in the boo-hoo-fest report show that the employee agreed to lose her job to take the time off... And then a big stink was made because she didn't accept the consequences of her actions...

I think it is a crappy situation, and I feel for her... And if it happens to me, I'll be mad, but I'll know that it was my choice (and not much of a choice - Loved ones > other).

Anyhow, enough ranting... I know it's a rare point of view : )

Up All Night didn't really grab me but its quite early, I remember the first few episodes of many popular comedies being rough. Hell, some shows take a season or two to find their footing. I think it's biggest problem surprisingly is Applegate herself, she just doesn't have the range to do it.

Eh, Up All Night is funnier if you have young kids. If you don't have kids or can't remember when you were young, I can see how it'd be terrible.

We have a 7 month old, and still all three of us in the house found it pretty bad. The writing couldn't pull together some mildly humourous single moments (Applegate trying to hold the baby's legs... been there at least once a day) into a full episode, and not a single actor looked interested in being there. It felt like actors reading lines, rather than their performances drawing me in.
