I think Colin Baker is much better as Doctor Who than the fandom gives him credit. It's just that a couple of ill-advised creative choices in "The Twin Dilemma" (which is nowhere near as bad as its reputation would have you believe) had him give a bad first impression. And as the cliche phrase goes, you don't get a second chance with a first impression.

I agree, I like.Colin Baker and his era of the show.

To be honest, I have never found American Dad and Family Guy very funny at all.

Friends, 2 and a Half Men and Family Guy are terrible.

I loved Extant.
Kubrick, Nolan, Tarantino, Wan, Iñárritu, Scorsese, Chaplin, Abrams, Wes Anderson, Gilliam, Kurosawa - the elite

The remakes of 'Salem's Lot and The Stand sucked, compared to the originals of 1979 and 1993.

I thought the original of The Stand was great up until the end bit in Vegas. Can't say I've seen either remake so far.

The new version of The Stand has gender and race swapped roles from the original (not necessarily a bad thing) and the new version of Salem's Lot has Ben Mears being the vampire.  :buggedout:

To me changing the original story is just the filmmaker saying I can make your story better than you did. I understand that not everything written on the page works on the screen and some parts need to be taken out for that or other reasons (especially length), but putting new stuff in just seems wrong and disrespectful to the source material and author.

I suspect another reason for all the Sixth Doctor hate is that he's the one which John Nathan-Turner left his mark.

OK, I think this opinion will get things - underpants, shoes, small rodents (thank you, Indy) etc thrown at me.

Except for a few episodes here and there, I have never found The Big Bang Theory funny, in fact quite the opposite. The cast is great but I find Jim Parsons' character grating and too much of a know it all.

All of us here, we are all nerds (I say that with pride) but that lot on that program:  :buggedout:

There, I've said it. *Hides in bathroom*

The idea of The Big Bang Theory was that every male character had a certain cliché about the nerds, so that the viewer could laugh about them, or laughing about himself.
And that was the original description of the show: Just 4 guys, with degrees in Sciences that are socially awkward and like all the things about the comics, superheroes, SciFi fandom like Star Wars, Star Trek, technology enthusiastic, video games, and so, so. Basically the stereotypical nerd.

But, then, the producers, writers, or whoever, realize that you don't have to be a nerd for enjoying movies about superheroes (besides was the fact that Series begin before the start of mostly of the Marvelverse movies) or be a fan of SW, or be a gamer; you could be just a regular man/woman who works, or study or has a no-Science career and at the same time has in some moments a geeky side.

In my case, I didn't watch the last season, and I think I don't want to watch it. In the latest seasons, some episodes were more like "What could do Sheldon about this or what could Sheldon say about that or whatever something Sheldon in this episode" and that was enough for me, I never like the character as a whole thing, as a whole person. I always feel myself more like a mix of cliché or personal aspects from the other characters, even Penny, than from a single one.

I still remember the episode where (guess who?) Sheldon can not decide if buying a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One, and he is citing and comparing all the features of each console and that make him anxious, and he is annoying everyone, like always...

And, yes, the episode was a product placement.

As a huge fan of fantasy, I think that GAME OF THRONES and its creator are the worst thing that ever happened to the genre. They exist only to destroy it from it's very core.

The new Magnum PI and MacGyver: never seen them, don't want to. :twirl:

I never seen an episode of the Big Bang Theory.
I never seen that meth head show Breaking Bad.That show just p**ses me off.

Actually, I don't watch a lot of modern TV. It bores the sh!t out of me. Fake 'reality' shows, bulls**t talent shows (not one of these people, including the judges, have any talent), game shows where a 12 year old would know the answers- awww- f**k it.

I did like River Monsters!

I like nature shows. I like history shows. (not Ancient Aliens or it's ilk- too much wiggle room for bullsh!t.)
Ghost hunting and bigfoot hunting is some of the laziest TV I've ever seen. Run around an old house or the woods- and have 5 seasons of this sh1t and nothing ever happens.
Supernatural?...perhaps. Baloney?...Perhaps not!" Bela Lugosi-the BLACK CAT (1934)

I loved How I Met Your Mother but I think I'll give How I Met Your Father a pass.

WTF are they going to make next? How I Met Your Symbiotic Twin or How I Met Your Mugger? :buggedout:
