It's weird what happened to this series. From the first season I was really hooked in this. But further the series went, the more uncomfortable I felt with it. The villains aren't that interesting and huge conflicts are dealt with too easily or stupidly. It's difficult to say what has been the worst season, since every one of them has had their moments - the good and the bad ones. But indisputably worst villain was Maryann. I liked how every episode ended in a little silly cliffhanger in the beginning, forcing to have some mini marathons of four(ish) episodes - even when I always knew that the cliffhanger would have some easy solution everytime right in the beginning of the episode.

Humor is great whole through the series and visually True Blood hides nothing. Especially when it comes to sex or violence. Story of Sookie isn't even half as interesting as the stories of vampires like Bill and Eric with their flashbacks of World War II, viking and wild wild west era. The least interesting or sympathetic characters are werewolves but the most horrifying thing in True Blood is seeing how poorly some of the good characters from the start are being written as evolving. But the evolving is of course a good thing for some too, which keeps this thing together well enough.

This series is based on the Australian comedy under the same title. Ryan is suicidal young man that tries to get overdose of antidepressants. No matter how many pills he takes, it seems impossible to die for. The next day his beautiful neighbour, who he has a little crush on, asks Ryan to watch for her dog, Wilfred, for a while she is on business. But Wilfred is everything but a normal dog. And then two of them become friends.

The quality of the humour is great. It is absolutely hilarious how Wilfred tries to explain the normal behaviour of a dog in simple situations like what the dog thinks when his owner is petting other dogs or what dogs think about babies and so on. The awkward situations that Wilfred leads to Ryan are also as funny as tragic. The humour is at its bests when Wilfred literally fucks Ryan's mind. Oh and the anecdotes.

Elijah Wood is great and I'm totally delighted to see him in this great role, because I haven't ever been greatest fan of him but maybe this opens some interesting doors for me to check his latter filmography better.

Two first seasons were simply great and it was bit of a shame to see that the quality was bit lost with the third season. Ryan's family relationships are interesting but sometimes it feels like that the show is just jamming. The childhood traumas and the main story of what actually is behind Wilfred is taken maybe a bit too far in the third season, but still a good thing is that it really took some steps forward - eventhough those were again just baby steps. Ryan's relationship with Jenna is also something to look for.

Not watching anymore



Orange Is the New Black lacks balls. Newsflash everybody, this is a prison drama. But every time there is a chance of great drama or backstabbing, it fails to do anything dramatic that you could hope for. There is little hate or any hard feelings between anybody and once some occur, almost without an exception things are solved that easily that it is even childish and stupid. And everybody are friends with an other. It's such a shame since there is a lot of potential of quarrels and hassle. No character besides Piper is even interesting and the back stories of the most are just awkward waste of time.

Top of the Lake starts dramatically. A 7-year-old girl is walking into a lake with the intentions of killing herself. A bus drives by and a woman in it sees what is happening and saves the girl. After taking her to a hospital, a nurse makes a dramatic discovery: the girl is pregnant. This starts a huge investigation of finding a potential father in the village and nothing is easy. The past and the present are both filthy in this village. Influence of the past is clearest in Robin whose influence in the other characters is then great. Beautifully written and exquisitely directed drama is definitely one of the most enjoyable mini series for a while that I've seen.

Maybe I was judging this series a little too early. Right after the first season, I was sure that I would give another try for this and it surely was worth it. The quality of the humor stays as satisfyingly awkward as in the first season but after the first one the difference that stands out is in the development of characters. Their stories and personal ambitions become more and more interesting and so the whole story becomes a little bit more wholesome. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Reid Scott and Tony Hale are the three actors whose characters stand out and make this series even more enjoyable.

As a little heads-up, there is an episode that takes place in Helsinki, the capital of Finland. As a Finn, I found the lack of authenticity a little disturbing. When the characters are speaking Finnish, it's all jibberish except some little words. Even those little words are pronounced all wrong and the meanings are also a little lost.

Waiting for a new season



I feel terrible urge to read the books that the show is based on but in the other hand, I feel like that would ruin totally my enjoyment of the show. In the three seasons, Game of Thrones surely has shown that nothing is ever sure and safe in Westeros. I admit that first I had some problems connecting the face and the name of the characters but the more I watch this, the clearer everything gets. The bonding with the characters is somehow difficult, because you are always afraid to loose him or her. By that, I mean nothing bad and I sure have my own favorite characters still and I enjoy this show with all of my heart.

Visually this show is pure magic. Actors are all comfortable in their roles and there is again one reason to love this. The long credit scene is also something that I never skip watching this. The show hasn't lost its quality anywhere since the first season and this gives awful lot of waiting for the springtime.


Season 4 update

After some time of thinking, I decided to read the books after all. No ragrets, but somehow that has effected on my ability to enjoy the show. There are some major and minor differences between the two and these are hurting me a bit. Not all changes are bad and especially I liked the portrayal of Red Viper and how he was made most likable new character there has come this late in the series. I also liked the adventures of Arya and The Hound.

The Storm of Swords is a massive book with multiple twists in the plot and therefore dividing the book in two seasons is more than acceptable. But since the books are strictly told by quite some few POVs and some might be out from action for a couple of books. Since that idea never came across of screenwriters of Game of Thrones, the show is at some points even further than the books. So this takes something from my ability to enjoy the books too. Maybe I should stop whining and enjoy both as they are. Which means more or less magnificent.

Filler episodes are rare in the fourth season but still even my non-reading friends noticed the storylines of some characters, whose time on the show is going to be boring and even more boring. That is yet nothing off from the show, but the future isn't looking too bright for some.

The show happens almost entirely within one messy apartment of two young lovers. People come and go, have a fight and make up. The comedy keeps running all the time. Minimalist milieu brings people close and makes all this to rely much on the great dialogue. Characters in the show are just so real and warm that it is impossible to not to love it. Relationship between Becky and Steve is the one that everyone would like to have and meat-headed friends are just like the friends you already have.

Archer might just be one of the greatest tv series that hit me out of the blue. I hadn't heard a single word about this, until my friend told me to check it out. And God I'm grateful I did. The humor of this is purely genious. When 20 minutes or so are just full of screaming laughter, you know that you have hit the goldmine. This kind of fast, quick-witted humor without borders or respect hits me hard. The plot runs behind every case-per-episode smoothly and the relationships between the each character develops greatly and are also a bit of a running joke during the whole series.

Years ago my friends showed me little clips from the series. I put the friendship in doubt. I mean that I just couldn't find the jokes funny. I had no interests of watching this show for a while. Not until I had almost forgot the jokes and had read somewhat praising words from all around the internet. I started watching the first season and before I knew it, I was hooked.

I soon realized that maybe I was first a little too ignorant. The humor in this something that might a little time to get into. I realized that one reason, why I didn't find the sketches that my friends showed me funny, was the reason that I couldn't understand the context and I didn't know who the characters really are. Some jokes are that massive that if you take them out of the context, you wouldn't possibly find anything funny in them. The two clips that I remember being shown, are Kitten Mittons and little parts from the episode "The Gang Cracks the Liberty Bell." The best thing is that I find that Liberty Bell episode as one of the greatest in the whole series. Sometimes jokes are a bit radical and saying that I realize maybe my humor is a bit too. That's why the show is that big a joy to watch.

Needless to say, the characters in this one are strong. The gang is ultimate greatness and the actors playing them are just as good. First, I found it hard to like Danny DeVito, but the show this great really takes the better of him out. Just like jokes, relationships are also easy to relate and that makes this show so easy to watch.

Now, how would someone like to remind me, why on earth I still watched the seventh season? Seriously. The first two seasons of this was still good but what the hell happened? The Trinity season was also interesting. However, at least the last two seasons have been complitely shit. Travis Marshall and Isaak Sirko must be the two most uninteresting villains in the short history of television. Seventh season tried to take a too big bite at once when hunting down four serial killers and each one of them was as dull as another. No wait, Hannah McKay was the utterly shittiest one.

I decided not to watch this any more and I hope this decision stays.

edit://
Fuck this shit. I knew that the upcoming season was to be the last one, but now after a little cool down I'm quite ok. And quite ready and almost waiting for it.

edit#2://
I gave the eight season a try but after few episodes I remembered why I disliked the series so much. I might watch the final season when it is finished and aired in whole, but I sure don't have interests enough to watch a n episode in a week. Who knows if I have even less for few mini marathons...

Once upon a time there was this fabulous western that I just happened to miss. I've always been huge fan of westerns and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is actually one of the most important films for me, ever. One of the reasons why I happened to miss this first place, if I remember correctly, was that back then it aired in Finland at the same time as the Uefa Champions League matches. And if it wasn't UCL matches, then it would've been some other and back then more important show. Anyways, now I've started this project of finishing this and it is pretty much everything that I expected it to be.

Deadwood is just as brutal as you could expect from a town without laws. Value of human life isn't much more than the value of soap or whiskey. Violence is brutal and because of the scenario the human relationships are everything but stable.

Nip/Tuck has always been a little guilty pleasure of mine. Christian Troy, performed by Julian McMahon, is absolute alpha dog of the series and the sympathetic Sean MacNamara, performed by Dylan Walsh, is also something special. The plastic surgery business is interesting and the way that way that MacNamara/Troy gets involved with dangerous clients and other criminals is fascinating. Third season is yet the greatest one after I have one season more to finish this series.

Arrested Development tells a story of a wealthy Bluth family, who lost everything. And one son (Michael), who had no choice, but to keep them all together.

The jokes are just huge which is big part of the greatness of this show. Joke starts with a little margin note that you might not even see at the first time but then it gets bigger and bigger and they are running that whole joke through the season and from season to another. And then those jokes start making spider webs and by that time you can only adore how clever this series seriously is.

One example of these spider web jokes is Michael's brother's, Buster's, losing his left arm. Gob has gotten married drunk with a seals dealer and his wife has given him a seal to a magic show. Somehow this seal eats a cat and ruins Gob's magic performance and so he releases this rabid animal into the sea. Lucille, Michael's mother, has permitted his babyboy Buster to join the Army. After little training Buster is going to be sent to Iraq. Before the duty calls, Buster has decided to swim the first time ever in the sea because his mother hasn't ever allowed him to do so. And of course there is this rabid seal which bites his arm off. And in the Bluth family, the father has always given his children lessons about dangerous methods of behaving with the one handed man faking to lose his hand in the most absurd ways.

There are plenty of supporting characters in this show that really gets some great laughs. One of them is the misleading doctor that gives great statements of the patients, unprofessional private detectives, Michael's uncle Oscar and the blind attorney for example. All the family members gets enough screentime to be interesting and the actors are just brilliant.

I really gobbled first three seasons. The first two seasons were amazing, but the latter two seasons weren't actually that great. It was a great disappointment. All the British action and the shit with the wall were something that the series didn't deserve. Fourth season seemed first to be dull but it all went better through the end.

28. The Wire (2002)
60 EPISODES

FINISHED



I declare this to be the greatest TV show ever. First of all, there isn't that many series that I would ever consider to rewatch someday soon. The Wire is surely one to be rewatched. I'm definitely alone with this opinion. I am sick and tired of all these crime per episode kind of series, like C.S.I. and Without a Trace. In The Wire, the scale of crimes is just outstandingly massive, creating a huge crime network between the drug dealers. The story is told both by the criminals and police point of view, and even the media's point of view.

Rather than being crime-per-episode kind of series, The Wire is crime-per-season kind of. And even that isn't that much straight forward. Each season has its own theme that it handles and by that you see each character in a new light. That sort of writing really makes you interested about the characters and you even start to sympathize them. No matter how bad criminal might look at the first sight, your opinion might change quite a lot towards him or her (mostly him) when the show goes on. The most attached you get into the little crooks, who even start to get a little name. There is absolutely no doubt about my favorite characters and I'm quite sure I share them with the others that have seen this show.

Plot is all in all amazing and the characters are, as I said, just more than it. The whining of the police department, criminals, politicians, dockers, school teachers and media staff is something that everyone can quite relate to and feel the anxiety of each and everyone of them. After listing the professions that are involved in the series, I came to think that there is quite bunch of characters in the show. And no one seemed to be irrelevant.

It's a little shame that I'm not able to love Death Note any more than this. Death Note had an incredible potential but that was all thrown away after L's death.

Scenario of this Death Note is interesting and the visual look of fine drawing is brilliant.

I think the series gave its best after first season and because of that I have no reason to continue this. Main reason behind this is simply that the characters gave me absolutely nothing and the writing was not that great. The big fights on the arena have never a chance of surprise, when everytime the winner is obvious. The drama in the training ground is simply something that no character provides.

I wouldn't find myself interested in the love affairs of some gladiators and some female servants but the worst was Batiatus. There were some master plans in the politic scenario but what happened between him and Spartacus was something underwhelming. First they seem to hate each other, then the bromance starts and then they hate again. This keeps happening for some time and when it happens, it is not a smooth change. In one episode, you see them laughing and playing boardgames together and in the next one the other is acting like a total douche towards the other. And that douche is as bad and as unsympathetic as a character could get and this happens just within a blink of an eye. Speaking about this rather hard without the use of spoilers.

I don't find the action scenes even that cool as people seem to find them. Oh yes, there is a lot of blood, but the use of slowmotion isn't pretty. The fastness and the feel of danger is lost almost completely. But that is compensated with the pairs of boobs that are shown. And those boobs are boobs of beautiful people, mostly.

The ending of the season was something that gave me also no interest to go forward with this. I'm as satisfied as I completely could get with this complete mediocrity.

One of the most hyped series in the past few years turned out to be a total disappointment. I hate that kind of Sherlock who knows the case all from the beginning and in the end he reveals that he was just fucking with us while inspecting the case. In the first season, the villains are annoyingly stereotypic and the actors are horrible. The villains in the second season are trying to make a difference but unfortunately the only interesting villain with at least some good actor is Moriarty (played by Andrew Scott).

The first season was a little worse than the second but the last episode of the second was just as stupid as the first season was in total. In some points the series was quite entertaining but even more it was annoying with these stupid plot holes or twists. Therefore this decision of not watching anymore has to stay, because now I feel like 9 hours of a lifetime wasted. I don't see this much better than Mentalist, which is pure stupidity. Btw, why on earth the IMDb rating is 9,2? High rating is quite common problem with TV series there though.

The 3rd Season

After all, I decided to continue with this show anyway. Recommendations from my friends had little something to to with this decision. They kept telling and telling me how I should watch this show forward even though they knew I disliked the first two seasons. They said that the it was going to be a little different. I had somehow forgiven or forgotten, how sad the series was in first place and watching didn't seem THAT bad thing to do at first place.

Right when starting the first episode, I somehow knew the idea would turn out to be a horrible one. It was obvious right in the first minutes that the season would be complete hovering with a fanboy dick. Third season is completely about the relationship between Sherlock and Watson. And yeah, spoiler alert, Sherlock didn't actually die at the end of the second season. Developing the relationships between the characters could be done more interestingly but the whole ridiculous thing is just exploring the theories of the fans.

And when it comes to fighting against the evil, the third season actually hits the rock bottom. The twist is as ridiculous as the developing, or undeveloping, relationships. Sherlock's mind palace thing and some of the ideas like his ability of being capable recognizing the origin of a wool of a woolly hat. God I'm sick of that bullshit and the intelligence battles between some of the characters.

I can only hope that the decision of not watching this anymore stays. It didn't stay after two disappointing seasons but I think the third was just enough. But then again, I find it impossible that the series could hit the new low anymore.

I remember liking this series when this first aired in Finland. Somehow I missed this and so I decided to continue this series. Because my memories of Fringe just consists of sporadic events, I decided to watch the first season again too. After a few episodes of rewatching, Fringe appeared to be far worse than I imagined.

The sci-fi scenario is interesting but simply nothing is impossible for these guys and that is what annoys me. For example, our heroes have read a Jules Verne book, where is this idea that last image that people see before their dead records on brains. And this image can be captured by some lazer blazer camera.

Second of all, Dr. Walter Bishop is fuck annoying and not funny at all. Olivia and Peter are interesting characters but not interesting enough that I could make it through five seasons to see the conclusion of anybodys fate.

Sad but true, I started watching this purely because of Zooey Deschanel. I really should have trusted my gut after the first episode while judging this but it took 40 freaking episodes until I understood that my time isn't worth it. Okay, first season had some moments, interesting love affairs and sensible Zooey, and I give the credit for all that. But what actually happened in the second season? Did I just find some common sense in my head or did the quality drop? I'm thinking about the combination of the two. Childish humor took over, the interesting love affairs were pushed away and it all went weird and awkward. Afterwards seeing the stupidity of the show had the same effect on me about Zooey like seeing her pooping would have done: I realized that she is also a human being. Later on in the second season or so I watched this purely because of both Max Greenberg's and Hannah Simone's character, whose quality lasted.

Love the mockumentary scenario here, when most often face-covered seen dwarf actor Warwick Davis runs an agency for short people while struggling with his personal life. While running the agency, Warwick takes the best jobs and gives the shittiest and the most humiliating ones to his so called friends and clients. Ricky Gervais writes some really awkward and funny stuff, but the thing with Life's Too Short is that things are a bit too obvious and so predictable. Like the conversations between desperate group of men talking about the best ways to kill themselves. Funniest things happens while watching Ricky and Stephen with their agency, when the old cast members of their previous shows like Extras and The Office run around asking for a job from them. First episode was pretty good with Liam Neeson and the greatness of that really brought me up into this. That's why it is so sad that the quality doesn't last and it felt more like a responsibility to finish the series that a joy. There were few great moments in the middle till the end though, but still.

First season was somewhat interesting but the second wasn't anymore. Acting in this is just horrible. I simply can't stand Wentworth Miller.

Breaking Bad was great it surely will be missed. But the good thing here is that Vince Gilligan knew, when and where to stop making this anymore. That might sound rough but still truthful. I was very much afraid that the show would go too far into non-interesting level, where Walter would just be just under the DEA's nose and still they would not a have a clue, who is this Heisenberg guy. Family relations are show in great scale because of Hank and Skyler. And ones should not be forgetting to mention Walter Jr.

The evolution of the characters throughout the show is huge. You see the good people turn bad, bad people turn worse and some bad people turn better. Camerawork is exquisite, showing shots like from the bottom of a meth dish when cooking or long rides while following the characters. I also love the colors of the desert and the hot city.

Now how the hell I seriously watched three whole seasons of this? Lost just isn't made for TV. This series must be gobbled from DVD and even then the series isn't interesting enough. Eight years back, I really enjoyed the first season, but I can't even imagine to restart watching this shite again.

After four seasons, I got tired of Kiefer Sutherland whispering dramatically and saving the United States of America.

Awesome list. Have you heard of Breaking Bad?
Because you thought the first season of The Walking Dead was only good, you might not want to keep watching the series because the second season is disappointingly less exciting and the drama's worse than the first season.

Thank you Mr. Saturn. I have heard a lot about Breaking Bad and mostly good. After your comment, I think seriously that I should start following it. And when it comes to The Walking Dead, I've heard people talking about the second season in some contradictory way. I don't have any high expectations and maybe so I might even quit watching it.
