Out of the Blue

So Craig Ferguson will leave CBS’ The Late Late Show at the end of the year (thanks Ant). I'm usually not up to see it, but I've always liked Craig and his show, so I'm sorry he's going (I think I'm in a minority here). I guess him not ending up heir to Letterman played into this, so my idea for replacing him probably won't fly, but if it was up to me, I'd give his show to Geoff and Secretariat.

i went out to the movies today (i go like maybe once or twice a year) to go see Captain America Winter Solider and it was really good! looks like they're going to do another one by how the way it ended.

So what's the correct order to watch Almost Human then?

i don't think order really matters... it's one of those shows that seems like with every episode there's a new story. it's a pretty decent show.

I liked that one too. Guardians looks like it could be really fun as well...

I only experience late night presenters from clips on YouTube but Craig Ferguson is the best general late night presenter, just ahead of Conan. I don't know how well these guys hold up on regular viewing.

FOX needs to stay out of the Sci-fi business. And the SyFy Channel needs to get back into it...

Those thinking that Almost Human was shown out-of-order are correct, like Firefly the Execs figured they knew better in how a show should be aired and decided to mix-and-match episode air dates.

Sad to say, like Firefly, it created a disjointed feeling which I am sure didn't help viewers keep up.

Anyone else watch Penny Dreadful? Showtime went and plastered it all over the internet ahead of airing. It was... OK. Definitely doesn't look to be making up for the loss of Dexter, but at least the macabre Victorian setting is fresh enough for TV.

Pisses me off about Almost Human...there are so many utterly shit shows that just go on and on and on. And while this wasn't the best sci-fi show ever, at least it was funny in a lot of it's material.

Although I can say when they started talking about "The Wall" I was getting rather irritated since all the information about it seemed to be delivered backwards in the way they aired the shows.

Can't help but think the audience that watches these sci-fi shows has gotten fed up with it and found other things to spend their time on.

I'm not much of a late night talk show person, but I've seen them all from time to time and Craig was the funniest of the bunch. Course I like that brit humor, guess it doesn't fly with most americans.

Except he's, you know, Scottish.

Ferguson. No one does what he does on a nightly basis. The show is basically controlled chaos, and, IMO, is hysterical. It's kind of like Pee Wee's Playhouse for adults. Though I never cared for the Pee Wee show.
Been watching him for years. The craziness will be missed.
Geoff, secretariat, The Shy Fellows, random phone calls, screaming rants at the audience, and the whole Scotish exageration stuff. Riot. DVR the show if you can't stay up. It's worth it.

Aww, RIP Bob. He was always one my faves. The Long Good Friday is still the best Brtitish gangster flick ever made.

Speaking of Kings, another show I really enjoyed that got shitcanned despite being brilliant was Kings on NBC. If anyone hasn't seen that then now is the time, I'm sure its on Netflix or etc
