I'm looking forward to watching the first 6 or 7 episodes of this and then forgetting to watch the rest:

I watched the first 3 (I think) of season 1 & just didn't bother continuing. I've been doing that with these Marvel Netflix shows specifically for some reason.

I eventually get to them, but yeah, it's not quite the "binge in one weekend" thing it used to be for me. I still haven't finished Jessica Jones season 2. I'll get to it eventually I'm sure.

Yep, just finished it. They killed it. It hit the right notes and I like the direction they took the story in. It got way better as the season progressed.

My son & his friends went to some launch event for season 5 of Arrested Development. They had the stair car which looks a lot nicer now than it ever did on the show.

Got caught up a couple days ago and really enjoyed the last couple. Last nights stepped it up. But the way Stan started to get it was a little odd, considering he already knew about the odd hours. But can't he just get check the airlines for Jennings flying to Houston?

There was a really weird ADR moment when Elizabeth is giving her now or never speech to Paige, that took me out of it, and the anticlimactic "return to normal" after Chicago was odd. But all in all pretty damn good ep.

Yeah, I don't get why Stan is NOW suspicious, outside of "hey, the show is ending, so time to get smarter". It seemed to me that the Aunt Helen comment is what got his wheels churning.

I thought last night's Americans was a huge wet fart of an episode. It was basically a clip show.

Stan gets kinda suspicious but not enough to do anything official about it. He asks some leading questions and pokes around their house. Seen it in the first episode.

Philip and Elizabeth are in a bad place, relationship-wise, but are brought to a bit of a thaw by doing a risky mission together where some redshirts die. Seen it three times a season for six years.

Cornered by an FBI car trying to roadblock them, they plow through and exchange gunfire. It was done better in the Season 1 finale, when it was Elizabeth who took the bullet and not someone we don't care about.

Philip has to mutilate a body to keep it from being identified and connected to them? It was done better in season 3, episode 2, when it was someone he cared about personally (Annelise) and not someone he had just met.

Paige gets information that makes her realize the spy game is just a little darker and messier than she thought. Her parent is concerned she isn't ready, but goes forward anyway. This has been in basically every episode since the beginning of season 5.

The FBI is emotionally distraught to find out that someone slipped out from right under their nose. Seen it, and Angry Gaad is more entertaining than Doom Boner Aderholdt.

As always, they television craft was excellent. But they have had a problem awhile now with stop-and-go pacing. Last week was hitting the gas, this week was slamming the brake.

Yeah, I was going to mention that. I could definitely see some streaming service or a different network pick it up.

I'm pretty bummed about B99 being cancelled, but how many more quality seasons did it have left? I believe The Office ran for WAY too long and I feel like Parks & Rec ended at the right time.

The office and to a lesser extent dealt with a lot of character changes that changed the dynamics of the show. I mean it's pretty remarkable that the main cast stayed together for 5 years and kept killing it pretty much the whole time.

We noticed the same thing. The out of sync issues started with either the scene when Stan went back into the FBI office or the dumping of the duffle bag into Lake Michigan and didn’t stop until the episode ended.
