Meh. Finale felt too long, too indulgent, too…safe.

Good TV: Community

One of the better sitcoms in recent memory.

Why aren’t you watching again?

Great song, good visuals but don’t feel the video adequately captures the vibe. Elements are there but think a new, more frenetic edit would make this vid really pop. Yeah I noticed stuff like that and no it’s not a diss on the director/editor. Not really.

A little something I’ve been working on. Fun stuff. Expect the first episode (featuring Toronto rapper/producer More or Les) in early February.

I didn’t enjoy the Season Three premiere of Parks and Recreation, but I loved this:

The Walking Dead

Great show. It’s a slow burn but definitely worth it. Curious to see how far they deviate from the Robert Kirkman-penned comic.

Curious to see if they’ve burned through the budget yet and if later eps will maintain the “endless throngs of zombies” vibe.

New Hawaii 5-0? Sure why not?

Not sure how the new show is going to be (I only vaguely remember the original outside of the iconic theme of course).

But damn if that theme song isn’t sweet.

I like Cougar Town

Posted in TV on September 3rd, 2010 by urbanguy

….and I don’t care who knows it.

For those put off by the title, it’s moved beyond it’s “Courteney Cox is a 40-something female dating younger men” premise to settle nicely into a dysfunctional extended family ensemble type piece.

While I don’t think I’d actually write a Cougar Town spec, I definitely love the cadence and comedic timing of the dialogue. If you loved Scrubs, you’ll dig this. Trust me. I’ve never steered you wrong. (Okay, maybe that one time but I already apologized for that. Stop bringing up old stuff.)

Spoiler alert: While I don’t like how they pushed Grayson and Jules together so quickly — liked Grayson’s “grumpy lone wolf” persona from the early eps — I’m curious to see what season two holds in a few weeks…
