Haha, mr. Bean, he's great. I laugh over and over again when I see it.. I just don't know why. Other series i'm watching are The Simpsons, Married With Children and.. I can't think of any other series right now.. but i've watched CSI quite a lot.

Am I dreaming? Is there finally someone who also doesn't think HIMYM is so special?

I've always considered it a second-tier wannabe Friends.

I've always disliked both. I am absolutely not a fan of sitcoms like these. I don't think I have managed to enjoy a single one of them aside from perhaps TBBT early on but even that got quite annoying for me fast.

And then of course there's Asking Alexandria... For the record, nobody ever asked Alexandria anything ever again.

Finally watched Firefly. Had put it off for years because I generally find Whedon's writing style a little self-indulgent, but it actually seemed to work in Firefly. A few episodes were kind of dud-ish, like the contrived Salem witch-trial bit, but most of them were pretty good (particularly liked 'Jaynestown'). Not bad, the film was good too, even if the whole Reaver ending / twist premise was a bit weak and left a lot unanswered.

Pretty much the same thoughts here. The show had moments of greatness but there were also some pretty boring episodes, particularly about halfway through the series. I thought the movie was great given the fact it had to summarize an entire second series, but obviously it would have been better if they were able to draw it out more across a dozen episodes. Apparently there have been some "serious talks" about reviving the show between Whedon/Fillion and Fox execs but that's been said and done before with nothing to show for it.

Well I'd certainly give the new series a whirl if they did revive it. There's a decent amount of the series left unanswered. It is 10 years old now though so might be hard to bring back that magic it supposedly had for people. Might be a lot of disappointment waiting to happen.

I don't consider myself a Browncoat so I wouldn't be as invested as others but the die-hard fans I think would ultimately go away disappointed. It just doesn't seem conceivable for them to pick up after so much time away from the show.

Yeah, I don't see the point in reviving it anymore. Too much time has passed.

Then again, some people thought it would be a good idea to bring back 24.

24 is something I'll probably watch when it's back on TV again, even though it became incredibly formulaic and predictable. They should totally Metal Gear Solid it up and bring in weird technological and paranormal elements. I want to see Jack Bauer fight a man made of bees.

Game of Thrones and Californication have both just started their latest seasons. Both are really good shows. I'm also watching Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as a bit of a throwaway as it ties in with the Marvel Cinematic Universe series of films.
