As badassmuthas.com’s foremost TV aficionado, I’ve been remiss on commenting on the latest TV happenings.
The Sopranos: Didn’t we all see this coming? Were we not expecting some kind of unsatisfying open-ended thinking man’s ending? Isn’t that what REALLY caused the tension we felt while watching the diner scene? Not so much “oooh, who’s gonna get it???” but more of a “shit there’s only like a minute left, nothing’s gonna happen.”
I would have liked a nice neat resolving violent ending as much as anybody, but I have to admit, that wouldn’t have really fit the styleof the series. I sort of understand what everyone is furious about, but not really. B
The Shield: A weak ending for such a fun season. Everything wrapped up a little TOO neatly. Heads needed to roll. C
Prison Break: “Hey this show’s getting pretty good ratings! Let’s reset and do it all over again!” C+ (plus for hot Bellick nudity)
Heroes: A fittingly weak ending to a weak series. Peter Patrelli has the ultimate super-power, yet all he appears to be capable of is turning into an invisible pussy. The only time Peter can’t seem to activate his awesome run-away ability is when he turns into a nuclear bomb. Oh, and a word of advice, Pete. If you happen to overhear super-villain Sylar think “The feds are after him, I’ll use that to my advantage” maybe you can help a brotha out when the feds just happen to capture Tim in the next 30 seconds. You dick. Finale C- Patrelli F—
Lost: The twist at the end was good, I’ll give ‘em that. But criminy, everyone is acting like the Lost finale was a sweet-ass Dyno with chrome hex pegs. Charlie’s death was retarded. He could have ran out the door, put on swim gear, left door open blah blah blah. Whatev. B
The Office: Funny AND there’s some semblance of a plot that you actually care about. Kind of rare for a comedy these days (I’m looking at you ‘It’s always Sunny in Philadelphia’). Good stuff right up to the final line - “We’re through”. A
Scrubs: I’m kind of embarrassed that I used to tell people I like this show - and by “used to” I mean like 4 months ago. Sappy crappy. What happened in the finale? Did i even watch it? Do I even care? Wasn’t there a musical episode this season? Compared to most shows, the finale was a C. Compared to what Scrubs used to be: D
Eureka 7: Wow. What a standard vague, lame, eco-centric anime ending. D
I watch more TV then I thought.
