Hill Street Blues

Hill Street Blues
Steven Bochco
6/6

 

 

I have been so lazy with the film watching as of late, except; I haven’t been so lazy! I’ve been busy watching the classic TV show Hill Street Blues, and this is my verdict:

  • Seasons 1-3: FANTASTIC! Some of the best TV there has ever been.
  • Seasons: 4-5: A very good cop show
  • Season 6 Episode 1-3: Signals the end of an era.

And then I bailed. Why tarnish a good memory with mediocrity?

Watch seasons one through three. Be a good person. And remember: Let’s be careful out there!

I will leave you with an excerpt.

Xena: Warrior Princess

Xena: Warrior Princess
Rob Tapert etc
∞/6

So I finally watched the final Xena-episode.  I’ve been putting it off for a few months, because I didn’t want it to end.  But I guess it was time, and so I can only remove my hat for the greatest TV series that ever there was.  
Yes, it has its share of silly filler material, but underneath is a truly epic story of loss, despair, sorrow and all those big wholesome emotions a truly epic story needs.  All told with great style and panache and intelligent referencing to historical myth as well as itself. Never fearing to step into the meta-level, never with a patronizing attitude towards its audience.  
I shall miss you, Xena. Until I watch the DVD commentaries.

Tubing: True Blood

So I finished True Blood, in a manner of speaking.
  • S1: Boring.  Vampires are stupid. Vampire bill is the worst actor ever.
  • S2-3: Nailbiting suspense. Vampires are still stupid.
  • S4: Bloody stupid vampire-and-wicca-nonsense.
  • S5: Yeah, yeah, respect the autharitah, yadda yadda. Zzzzz…
  • S6: If you thought S4 was stoopid…
  • S7: OMG WHAT IS THIS CRAP?? I’m outta here!

 

What to watch: Season 1 – Season 3.
