I don't hate it, it has plenty of bright spots and the scene with Coach/Saracen where Coach throws him in the shower is one of the best scenes of the series. It's nowhere close to the other 4 seasons, but it's not Heroes bad.

I forgot about Under the Dome so I caught up on the internet. All I can say is Thank God, we have internet. Pointless to sit down and watch this show with commercial.

The Twilight Zone marathon on Syfy was awesome. So glad they showed Nightmare at 20,000 Feet with Shatner.

It's not a proper television show, but I'm hooked on Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians Riding In Cars Getting Coffee webseries. Last night I watched all the episodes on Crackle. Jerry keeps getting a little bit closer to creating a show that's legitimately about nothing.

There are a few of us who really like this too. The ones with Ricky Gervais and Larry David are my favorites by far.

I'm a little late to realizing this, but the pilot episode for 'Orphan Black' on BBC America is definitely intriguing. Gonna watch the first season.

I watched the first 5 episodes of season one and never continued. It didn't hook me enough. I really wanted to like it (BBC America's first original show), but it just didn't do it for me. I heard it improved later on, but I doubt I'll ever return to it.

BBC America's second original show, Orphan Black, is probably better based on critical reception. I'm checking it out now.

Michael Richards' story about chess was probably my favorite part.

Agreed. That whole episode was good too. I love how he made up that he knew Sugar Ray Leonard and then it turns out that it's Jay Mohr's house.

Comedians in Cars is excellent. Jerry is a such a funny guy but his standup is at best average. Larry David is the real brains but Seinfeld(person) still has something that just makes you laugh. Anyone understand what I'm talking about?

His web series pretty much is a demonstration of what makes Jerry so good. He's great at creating and carrying on an interesting, relatable conversation and the comedy takes care of itself from being relatable.

He is doing it for a reason! He needs to humble these people and yelling makes them actually listen. Jon Taffer is actually a really sweet guy and the yelling is absolutely necessary.

I watched a few episodes of Bar Rescue one night and thought it was somewhat entertaining. Then I watched a couple more and became ******* annoyed in the same way I am watching any scripted procedural drama show. It's always the same formulaic nonsense.

It's just manufactured, petty and undeniably bogus conflict created for the sake of overly-dramatic moments to allow Jon Taffer to yell and yell like a lunatic.

If the show focused more on the actual business of creating successful bars and less on the asinine personal feuds between employees (that half the time seem too absurd to not be completely fake), then it might be a show worth watching.

Each episode could be boiled down to 10 minutes of actually watch-worthy content. A third of the show is recapping what we've already been told (basically after every commercial break they repeat everything) and another third is talking heads from the employees that couldn't be less compelling.

If the show focused more on the actual business of creating successful bars and less on the asinine personal feuds between employees (that half the time seem too absurd to not be completely fake), then it might be a show worth watching.
I tend to think reality shows are scripted but I also think Bar Rescue is different (everyone who has been on the show says it is all real too). A lot of the time the personal feuds are getting in the way of the business being successful so Taffer has to deal with that. From what I understand a ton of good stuff is cut so I think the show would be so much better if it were half an hour longer. These are some of the worst bars in America and most are terribly run so they absolutely can seem scripted just based on how ******* awful they are before he fixes ****. Obviously I am a staunch defender of the show and normally the whole yelling for the sake of yelling and manufactured drama pisses me off and makes me stop watching a show but to me Bar Rescue is different.

Each episode could be boiled down to 10 minutes of actually watch-worthy content. A third of the show is recapping what we've already been told (basically after every commercial break they repeat everything) and another third is talking heads from the employees that couldn't be less compelling.
Meh I agree that some of this has to be without a doubt fake. But some of the things he does and those brief insights on why he does what he does and act like he acts makes it interesting.

I do agree that the show spends to much time recapping and can be dumbed down far too much but I mean it is a show on Spike TV whose target audience is dominated by mongoloids.
