Taub's romance arc is boring, but in terms of doctoring, he's the most mercenary. He just wants to get paid, and he doesn't futz around with moral integrity like the wet blankets that are Foreman and Cameron.

Here are my notes for Regular Show - "The White Elephant Gift Exhange"
Nominated by: Pirateking
Cqe7qx2

It seems like there's a massive segment of this board that enjoys these loud, aesthetically unpleasing shows about obstreperous individuals being mean to one another. I'm not sure if it's just me being weird, but I really, really don't enjoy that sort of malarkey. Here again, we find some sort of Adult Swim late night fodder that can't even get over in a primetime timeslot so it's foisted into the back hours where the people who have nothing better to do but skim through either ESPN 4's marathon coverage of Badminton, infomercials or the sort of Take Out the Trash Day nonsense that parades around in late night Cartoon Network segments.

Take for example this show. The entire schtick of this episode is to, yet again, highlight disgusting, unpalatable displays of unsanitary toilet-style humor. Once more. Hooray. I'm sure everyone loves watching expired clam chowder explode on someone. That's a pretty picture. It's not even the clam chowder though. It's the presentation of the clam chowder. I recall an episode of the Good Place from season 2 made a very similar joke by having fountains of chowder in the center of town in order to reinforce the Bad Place aspects of the customized Hell the characters were forced to reside in, and that joke landed for me because it didn't go out of its way to say "expired" or to spray it all over someone because that would be gross and therefore funny to a bunch adolescents trolling for simple laughs late at night while their parents let the TV do the parenting since they would instead be out at square dancing soliciting other couples for key parties.

And the animation style is ONCE AGAIN a terrible mess of lines drawn by someone who has clearly hand drawn each frame in about seventeen seconds. It's so bland and awful. I can't even begin to imagine why people would entertain the notion that this is entertainment. Stop it. Stop it, all of you. Demand more of your television shows. This is a call to all of you in this topic. There's still time. Find better television.

At least it was short.

Here are my notes for Simpsons - "A Streetcar Named Marge"
Nominated by: Xeybozn

NfqUmdP

I really didn't put down much in the way of notes on this one, and I can't really pin exactly why. I would hazard a guess that, generally speaking, The Simpsons has never really spotted me a ton of memorable laugh-out-loud moments. As far as I can recall, it's always just simmering at a moderately amusing level, never rising to the heights of a truly excellent comedy. The format and pacing reminds me of a longer-length Saturday Night Live segment. The plots are usually simplistic, buttressed by rapid-fire one-liners that pull from a variety of different comedic styles. There's something to offer for everyone here, but there's not one particular comedic style that's pervasive throughout the show. Ultimately, it comes across as a sitcom with no budget or limitations. Everything is on the table except for really unique, wild premises.

Not every show needs to go out and find bizarre, cool concepts though. This episode was simple and amusing (although I'm getting tired of everyone pushing musical episodes on this list. How many more must I endure?). The real thing I've noticed about The Simpsons and its popular episodes is that they are fully reliant on external pop culture influences to create their most amusing moments. A play about A Streetcar Named Desire fuels most of this plot, including the sweet moment of almost revelation at the end of the episode, and the B-plot is completely reliant on The Great Escape to supply an entertainment factor. Overall, I'm not particularly impressed except with the pacing between lines and between scenes. The show definitely understands that its strength is in throwing as much at the wall as it can, because at some point, something will stick.

The Simpsons, in a nutshell, will never be a show I actively seek out. For me, it is the definition of "good", at the closest to neutral as you can possibly be without being average or neutral.

I've been rewatching a lot of old Simpsons recently and you're 100% right about this. The way the plots are just excuses to get to more jokes is probably the series' biggest weakness compared to newer adult-oriented cartoons.

I've always been a little more into shows that push a more contiguous plotline from episode to episode, so maybe that's why I'm not as enamored with The Simpsons as some people. It's one of those shows where I can objectively see what is working for some people and just not subjectively appreciate it.

Kind of like Breaking Bad, honestly!

Star Trek: DS9 - "In the Pale Moonlight"
Nominated by: Not_An_Owl


In a plot that would normally come across a staid and somewhat forced contrivance, In the Pale Moonlight rises far above the simplicity of a heist-like formula and creates an intricate chess-like gamut of machinations centered around the lengths to which Sisko will bend his morality. This is probably the objectively best episode of the entire series (although not my favorite one), with some of the best writing Star Trek has ever had. On any series in the franchise.

The questions posed in this episode dug knuckles deep into the sort of moral ponderances that Star Trek has become known for, and you can see the hand of Ronald D. Moore throughout the episode. Probably the largest question the episode explores is the simplest: Is the road to hell paved with good intentions? Sisko's desire to protect a quadrant as the names of the dead scroll by day after day is noble. And in what is one of the great little touches Deep Space Nine provides, watching the various denizens of the station check for any loved ones day after day plays with morbidity casually. There's some gallows humor, and some moments that really set the stage. Bashir is relieved when the only name he recognizes is a "friend of a friend". "That's a pretty good day," he says, not quite realizing the gravity of that statement.

It's in this spirit that Sisko's confessionals peppered throughout the episode come in handy. To watch the guilt weigh down and ultimately crush Sisko into submission as he gives up the moral high ground (unwillingly at first), you watch a one of the fabled Star Trek Captains give in to a change in the whole paradigm of Starfleet ethics. It is wartime. Sisko must be the wartime consigliore or the Federation will be surely crushed. Hell, the Betazoids got fucked over by minute five in this episode, and that's like the worst planet in the Federation. Imagine if a planet people cared about was sacked!

But the nature of being a wartime consigliore is stands in stark constrast to the "Boldly Go" principles of TOS and TNG. And in one of the best performances you'll ever get in Star Trek, we go through the process right alongside Sisko. We, too, resign ourselves that we must dirty our hands and accept that the dream, the humanistic utopia we've been promised for decades in this franchise, must be soiled by a pragmatic but unprincipled approach. It's truly one of the most thought-provoking episodes of Star Trek, even though the level of skulduggery is nowhere near the sort of grimy real world drama we've all read about and experienced. Perhaps that's why Star Trek is so wonderful; in this world, even one death can carry a preponderance of guilt with it.

I love DS9 because it's not afraid to get morally gray and show just what goes into maintaining a utopia like the Federation. In the Pale Moonlight is probably the best-known example, but really the entire Dominion War arc is one long exercise in finding out just how much the cast is willing to compromise their morals to keep the Federation safe. It makes for very compelling drama, and it absolutely could not have been made while Gene Roddenberry was alive.

Bojack Horseman - "Time's Arrow"
Nominated by: mcflubbin


In an episode that I feel would be better appreciated with some context, Time's Arrow seems to chronicle the life of a character that appears to be failing thanks to the cruelest mistress in all of humanity - dementia. For me, the struggle with dementia is one that I often hate to watch because I deal with it regularly; my grandmother has dementia, and watching her slip away slowly has been the worst part of my life. So this episode was painful to watch, and definitely something I wouldn't do again.

The life of this Beatrice character is doused with cruelty and a level of taking someone for granted that is highly unpleasant but definitely informative of a character. While I haven't watched much of this series (just a few episodes in the first season), I can see that the entirety of Henrietta's life is suddenly informing us of how she comes to be in a strained relationship with her son. Her disappointment in him is tragic when coupled with how little she seems to care about his own goals and dreams. Her only perspective of Bojack seems to be viewed from a lens of his terrible father and the lost life she wish she could have led. Meanwhile, Beatrice's mind is rasping through the last rasps of death as she appears to be flitting from trauma to trauma, each one piling on to a life of desperate tragedy.

It certainly is cliched when removed from the context of dementia, but the inevitability of Beatrice's fate makes this episode especially moving. Bojack (who from what I remember), usually callous and self-focused, takes a step to ease his mother of the agony of her life with a carefully-measured lie, and there's a kindness there. The ending is especially painful for me because I know those conversations intimately. All in all, excellently presented but something I'd never watch again.

I would have nominated a different episode if I had known about your current situation with your grandmother, so I apologize for that. I know that's rough. My grandmother also suffered from dementia, so Beatrice's whole arc really resonated with me in a profound way, even though my grandmother was probably the exact opposite of Beatrice in nearly every aspect.

There's really only one show I can watch with dementia or Alzheimer's these days, and that's Boston Legal. It romanticizes those diseases a little bit and makes it a lot more palatable to watch. I agree that the episode resonates, but I think that for me, in the place I'm in right now, I don't want to necessarily experience that. That said, I thought the writing was excellent so don't feel too bad about it!

Father Ted - "A Song for Europe"
Nominated by: TheCodeIsBosco


Brevity is the soul of wit, as they say, and this episode could have done with a trim of the fat. I don't often bring up things like laugh tracks, but this show desperately could have used a complete overhaul without the piped-in filler. I don't know if it's my style of humor clashing with the Irish sensibility or simply the fact that I was forced to dwell on unfunny jokes which the show claimed to be amusing at times or the fact that the pauses are death to me, but this show didn't resonate with me all that much.

Having spent years working at a church, I'd often considered watching Father Ted. Sadly, I've not gotten around to it until now. For me, the humor of a church-based show should be in the political machinations of the congregants and the dreary administrative work for clergy that seems to overtake any spiritual duties 90% of the time. Instead, I was privvy to a moderately amusing segment about horse buggery followed by this sort of interminable exercise in bad musicality. It reminded me of Flight of the Conchords, but with a much tamer, broader comedic sensibility. And, for me, broad is bad. The Good Place might replace my definition of broad with, "Ya basic." That's how lowly I think of the easy jokes. For me, this is a really lukewarm episode of a sitcom, that didn't seem to be focused on what makes sitcoms work - relationships. Instead, we were gifted an episode focused on gimmicks. And gimmicks only work in professional wrestling. If I have to listen to someone say the phrase "My Lovely Horse" one hundred times in an episode, they aren't doing their duty. And if you're presenting a musical number as the primary focus of the episode with a dichotomy between a good version and a bad version, make the good version over-the-top and the bad version a little worse. This was just not there on either count.

Would I watch more of this show? I might. The titular character, Ted, seems to be a fair caricature of the sort of personality I encountered in my church work experiences. Every other character, however, was fairly uninteresting. People in the live studio audience were howling at the drunkard priest (which was easily the worst thing about this episode), which makes me think that this show really doesn't cater to a "me" sort of audience. All in all, I know I'm a tough comedy critic (moreso than dramatic shows), but this just didn't do it for me.

West Wing - "20 Hours in America"
Nominated by: Eddv

In an Aaron Sorkin show, the greatest flaw of every hero is the same - insulation. West Wing probably presents this flaw the best in 20 Hours in America, which sees the two most dysfunctional people on the show (Josh and Toby) attempt to live in the real world for one day, and it probably creates the best humor of the entire series, and at the same time it sees a surprising amount of heart, which is par for the course for Aaron Sorkin firing on all cylinders.

A lot of what works in a Sorkin show is that, as a writer, he hears the voices of the actors portraying his characters.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-J1NHzQ1sgc" data-time="


Bradley Whitford is one of the most natural actors I've ever seen, and he so perfectly embodies the character of Josh. He always has a little condescension in his personality, so when he is shown up, he melts down a bit. And in this moment especially, we get to watch a common occurrence (when you travel, timezones change) utterly break the brains of these two sheltered, insulated geniuses who aren't acclimated to living in the real world. Toby, in particular, has a great deft moment of picking up a stick along the side of the road and hitting the guardrail as Josh just starts walking through a covered bridge shouting "CAN WE HAVE CIVILIZATION?"

The comedic beauty of this scene is the natural overreaction. WE wouldn't act this way. THEY would act this way, and we understand why. They've been cut from the herd; they live a lifestyle that is wholly built on their convenience, so long as they stick to the articulated plan, so long as they remain atop the machine. Removed from the system, they break down. The little inconveniences of life have escaped them, living in the White House. In the White House, time adjusts for you. As the entire episode depicts, the President is woefully off of schedule from the first minute, and everything else adjusts for his sake. Watching his staff cut from the umbilical cord of the President is just so insanely amusing that I can't hype this episode enough, although that scene in particular is my favorite.

Something about West Wing that can't be ignored is how fast it moves. Sorkin knocks out a lot in small snippets of dialogue, and perhaps that's why his lines are so memorable. He has to remain on the move, so tightly written scenes consistently contain more impactful lines. When you think back on the series, you likely will remember 1 episode as 3 episodes instead due to the sheer amount of content that sticks with you. I wholly forgot that the "You're freaking the President out" plotline was in this episode. And I forgot "The streets of heaven are full of angels" was the same episode as "I LOVE DRY RUB!" Line after line is just expertly communicated and written here. Every character is a personality, but a well-rounded one. The cartoonish antics of Josh and Toby eventually mellow out into an appreciation for the people they represent, and a bet that serves as a major source of comedy throughout the episode (I'm Toby Ziegler, and I work at the White House), is given an inversion in the final act, becoming a heartwarming moment of change in perspective. Sorkin actually plays this several times in this episode. A silly moment of Charlie warning the President against pictures on his desk is inverted when CJ gives Charlie a picture of his deceased mother.

Little turns like really demonstrate why 20 Hours in America is so wonderful. Add to it the awesome guest appearances of a young Amy Adams and a young John Gallagher Jr. (before they were famous!), and you really have a lot of fun going on in this movie-length West Wing installment. But in and amongst the fun, the Sorkinism rings true: duty to others, loyalty to your country.

Black Donnellys - "Pilot"
Nominated by: TheCodeIsBosco


The opening credits bowled me over a little bit. Paul Haggis? A couple dudes from Oz? Olivia Wilde? That guy from Westworld? How had I never heard of this show before? Right out of the gate, Bosco had impressed me with a star-studded line-up. And the opening of the episode, along with the basic conceit in presentation, only continued to reinforce that this might be an unsung gem of a show.

The longer the episode lasted however, the more I began to have problems with the show itself. In a lot of ways, this show started to remind me of two things: first, Five Towns, a fictional series featured on the show Entourage, where Johnny Drama stars as a crime boss living alongside his crew of twentysomething fringe criminals eking out living in some unnamed northeastern suburban center. The other thing this show reminded me of was The Departed; but that was a superficial comparison. Both stories feature a heavy Irish backdrop and, of course, a significant amount of grimy urban crime. But the comparison in quality was probably the most telling. Black Donnellys is much more Five Towns than The Departed. The longer this episode drags on, the less and less each scene felt essential. At the start, with heavy narrator influence, the characters are more well-defined. But the narration becomes more sporadic at about the halfway mark, and the onus is on the characters themselves to propel the narrative.

What starts to happen is that the main characters, a group of brothers, all start to meld together, each personality starting to seem like the others. It's an issue of writing, wherein only one character's voice was ever truly well-defined, and every actor kind of plays as if they are trying to act the same role. All of the main characters are also handed fairly pedantic, dull dialogue as the episode is trying to wait around for the ending sequence in order to pick up steam again. I reiterate - this reminds me a lot of Five Towns. A show with a premise and a creator with a lot of potential, but a quick decline in quality.

Another issue I had with this show was the quality of licensed music. It just didn't seem to fit at all with what was happening, and not in that ironic way where you play a light, fluffy piece during a fight scene in order to juxtapose to disparate tones. No, this was a matter of the music being woefully generic. Not a big knock against, but it felt like a very NETWORK-APPROVED version of a show like the Sopranos. It was, well, sexy Sopranos. Look, these characters aren't all 50! Please watch!

In the end, the episode is bookended by two strong acts and filled in the middle with so much primetime mush that I can't see myself coming back to this show. Unlike the Departed, where every scene is hammering home a point with focus, this show meandered around with wimpy dialogue despite some potential here and there.

I think I actually saw that pilot randomly when it first aired. I couldn't tell the brothers apart, they did all seem like the same character to me

As I recall, the story was being told by a dude getting interrogated by the police, and after he finishes telling them about the blood bath, they are like, "those aren't the bodies we were asking about" and I just imagined 12 more episodes of this guy telling them the wrong story about murders and crime until he gets to the one they want. I didn't bother watching more.

Man, I love seeing people reference Entourage. For all the flak it's received over the years, that show is so nostalgic for me.

Regarding Father Ted, I've shown it to many people over the years and it's been very polarizing. Your take is the first "Eh, it's alright/mediocre" one, which is fun. Usually, people either fall in love with it like I did, or are like "wtf, turn this shit off". No in-between.

It's an extremely broad show, as Graham Linehan programs tend to be, but it's total comfort food for me. The cast chemistry is just delightful - they really know how to wring all the humor possible out of each joke, from the on-the-nose to the genuinely witty. Also, if you watch the show further...

For me, the humor of a church-based show should be in the political machinations of the congregants and the dreary administrative work for clergy that seems to overtake any spiritual duties 90% of the time.

I don't think it earned a solo rewatch from me yet, but if you want to nominate a second look for me in season 2, you're more than welcome to.

As I've pondered this episode since, I think I've come to the conclusion that this episode must be an exception and not a rule, especially after your second post reinforcing more church-based material elsewhere in the show. This episode had virtually none of that, and maybe that's why it just felt like wasted potential.

Game of Thrones - "A Golden Crown"
Nominated by: Johnbobb


It's tough to grade an episode of Game of Thrones fairly. For me, virtually every episode nails the fundamentals of creating a functional television show. On top of that, the acting is consistently in the top tiers of all-around casts through every season, so any nitpicks I have really come down to just the Scarlet Factor category.

I assume everyone has watched the first season of GoT here, so if you haven't, well that's too bad.

A Golden Crown is an episode that I remember primarily for the titular scene, and while it is maybe the most visually striking moment in the first season, it also doesn't have much emotional resonance for me. Perhaps the foreknowledge that the character of Viserys would meet this fate early on (thanks of course to the books) made me anticipate this and also dilute the impact this would have to new viewers. For me, the great moments in this episode come from Tyrion. In this episode, you get a lot of what makes Tyrion an enticing character. He is visually and situationally an underdog to root for. He has a quick wit and penchant to stand up for himself in a society where the rules consistently play against him at every turn (no matter what region of the world he lands), so watching him stubbornly refuse to give in to the stupidity of Westeros or Essos or where-have-you is always rewarding. The story arranges things perfectly for Tyrion to stand wholly separate from his own family in the eyes of the viewer, and I applaud especially the scene where he metaphorically spits in the face of Catelyn and her sister by describing in somewhat graphic detail a host of his younger indiscretions, all for the sake of thumbing his nose at their own bad behavior.

Game of Thrones has such a deliberate pace that, if you were to watch a bar ticking down the minutes in each scene, you would be surprised how much time is passing. However, the writing is so heavily concentrated on making each sentence matter, and a bevy of veteran actors make so many scenes that are transitional and setup moments matter. In fact, most episode of Game of Thrones have three major moments and spend the rest of the episode setting up future major moments. It's a wrestling style of television. You have your feuds, you have your tag teams, and when they all aren't clashing, you're building those feuds. The wonderful build, for example, between Littlefinger and Ned is exactly the sort of transitional or setup scene you will need for a major moment later in the season. The writers do an excellent job of providing acting cues in the script so that every actor on screen knows exactly where to go with every line. That's extremely important in these scenes. With a massive ensemble, every onscreen second counts; and build is very important.

Lastly, there is a significant amount of foreshadowing in this episode. Theon predicts a fate for his hooker friend that will eventually play out, the king offers several lines that will either be completely subverted or exactly presented, and a prophecy for Mr. and Mrs. Drogo is presented that will also be completely subverted (or will it?). It's all about that transitional build in Game of Thrones - the constant looking-forward to what comes next.
