I need a new show that's good background noise. Used up futurama, family guy, cleveland show, american dad, hell on wheels, and shows like all up. If you got any suggestions I'd like to hear them, preferable sit coms or cartoons that are comedical. Hell on Wheelies isn't comedical, but it sucks like a comedy.

Any tips for lowering my standards?

Whenever my friends talk about TV it's usually about shows like Arrow and The Walking Dead.

Unfortunately I'm not really into either.

I've tried many-a-time to get into both (Was into TWD in season 1) and just can't keep going. I want to be able to fit in with the majority of my friends though and talk about shows that they like with them when they talk about them.
User avatar #33060 to #33017 - eight (08/20/2015) [-]
Focus on what you like about it instead of what you don't. Try not to imagine what you would have done (if in the writers room or directors chair) and instead just accept what's shown.

Also take into consideration the production budget and the target audience as well as the genre.

For example:

Arrow - Aimed at teens. Aimed at comic fans. 18-24 episode semi-procedural drama. Airs on CW. What can you expect then? Average acting. Soapy characters. Predictable twists. Deus Ex Machina. Simple and or sloppy plot construction. Lots of filler episodes. Entertaining action. Interesting heroes, villains. The occasional good episode.

The Walking Dead - NBC Network. Aimed at wide audience, mostly late teens to late 20's. 16 episode full procedural drama. Zombie show. What can you expect? Slow plot progression. Repetition. Good acting, well developed characters, simple plot, sometimes forced out of character actions, character stupidity convenience, 2-4 filler episodes per season. Easy show to watch, but repetitive and slow. If you're not into zombies, or apocalyptic genre, it's not for you.
#33079 to #33060 - anon (08/20/2015) [-]
>Walking Dead
>Well Developed Characters
uh...

What pisses me off most about The Walking Dead is how good it started, sure a couple episodes were slow Tell it to the Frogs , but the changes they made to the source material felt cool and fit in with the world.
Blowing up the CDC? Awesome
Community of people holed up in nursing home just trying to protect the elderly? Awesome
Merle Dixon? Awesome
Daryl Dixon? Awesome

But starting off Season 2 they fucked it up
Hey is Daryl still pretty much a dickhead like his brother? No now he's nice and says funny stuff sometimes
So how long should they be at the farm? In the comics they were there for less than a full volume. The whole season? Alright.
Remember how The Governor felt dangerous because he cuts off Rick's fucking arm when they first meet and rapes Michonne while Glenn is forced to watch? Yeah. Let's not do that and make him "Bad Guy in Eyepatch".

As far as Arrow goes I don't like having to wade through filler to get to the continuation of an average story.
User avatar #33089 to #33079 - eight (08/20/2015) [-]
Frank Darabont was definitely the best thing to happen to the show. A pity AMC's cheap ass fired him.

Daryl was a dickhead for most of season 2. He was starting to warm up to some people, but he was still very snappy towards people. He didn't even live with them yet, he had his own area out away from the main house. In any case, character development. You don't get development if the character stays the same as when they are first introduced.

Robert Kirkman himself suggests that they shouldn't cut off Rick's hand in the show. I'm sure he has a good reason for that. The Governor was definitely pretty tame in the show, but, I still enjoyed his character. Hopefully, they won't be tame with Negan though.

In the end, the comics are the comics and the show is the show. Most things in comics do not even translate well to live action. It's either too cheesy or over the top.

But to suggest that The Walking Dead doesn't have good character development is completely ludicrous. It's basically the one thing it consistently delivers, well except for in the case of Lori, but she's dead now.
#33090 to #33089 - anon (08/20/2015) [-]
I still don't agree with you on the Daryl thing, but whatever

How about Carol then?
They just pulled Badass Independent woman out of their ass on that
All of the throwaway characters that they put in the beginning of each season so that they have someone to kill without derailing the story is some lazy writing.
Sickness in the prison was a huge wasted opportunity, basically just meant "new characters die and Carol leaves only to come back because this show's all about fanservice now"
Hey let's bring Merle back since we haven't seen him for awhile! Wait don't we have that rule about new characters? Oops, you're right shit. Better kill him. Didn't matter.

I don't mind change to the source material, I really don't, but the changes have to feel appropriate to the source material. Rick feels invincible in the show and that's some bullshit. One of my favorite moments in the comics is when Rick saves Carl from getting raped by those guys out in the middle of the road. He rips them apart with one arm missing! The downward spiral for rick is much more noticeable in the comics and in a big way that's what the comics were about. Watered down to a criminal point in the show.
User avatar #33101 to #33090 - eight (08/20/2015) [-]
Why not on Daryl?

Carol starts out as a helpless meek woman abused by her husband and eventually becomes a strong independent woman who's good at deceiving others. She started a little bit in season 3, more so in season 4 and became a complete savage badass in season 5. I don't expect her to be around much longer now.

Hence the term, throwaway. They aren't even secondary characters, they matter even less than secondary. It's lazy writing to include people just to kill, I agree completely. But obviously the character development applies to actual characters and not just the kill of the week. The ones that stick around get development. Except for maybe Beth, that was a huge forced mess.

Sickness in the prison further established the core groups ability to survive. It completed Herschel's character progression arc,, showed Ricks ability to exile family, setup the conflict and eventual redemption between Tyreese, Rick and Carol and established Lizzie's characters psychosis. All of these plot lines later tied up together, albeit it, it took too long. The latter half of season 4 should have been condensed into 2-3 episodes. The rest was filler.

I don't think the creators care anything about fanservice, otherwise they wouldn't have taken the many directions they have. I'm pretty sure the fans want meaningful deaths, logical deaths and not plot arcs squeezed so thin that you nearly fall asleep every episode. I'd say the only fan service they're listening to is keeping Daryl alive and killing off Lori. I mean, it took 5 years to truly bring back Morgan and make him a regular. He was a major fan favorite from the first episode.

They had to bring Merle back, it was an unresolved plot point. If they cared about fanservice, they never would have killed him off. Most liked Merle. Then again, what more could Merle really offer?

Rick is invincible in the comics then, as you just stated, he rips them apart with one arm. Sure, he gets injured and maimed, but he's still alive and doing unbelievable things with only one arm. I'm not a comic book reader, so he may be dead in it by now, I don't know.

This is an AMC show. Just about everything is watered down on network television. If it were HBO, STARZ, Showtime, ect... I'm sure the stakes would be more severe and graphic. Otherwise, I think they would go there, because that would be great drama.

After years of avoidance, I have succumbed to Teen Wolf. Not a bad show, wish I had checked it out sooner. Wasn't like what I expected it might be. That's not to say it's a great show. It's filled with plot holes, conveniences and inconsistencies, but I do enjoy the characters and their chemistry with one another. Also like how the main character isn't a superhero as commonly happens with these types of shows.

I've learned that sometimes you just have to take some movies and shows for face value and ignore the plotholes and inconsistencies - glaring or not. I do it all the time. A few of my favorite movies have huge plotholes and screw-ups, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying them for what they are.

I have just under 25 minutes left in the movie, but this movie implies eating people can heal fatal wounds and disease. It's also bad for other reasons. I don't even really care that it was partly spoiled for me anymore.

IMDB has probably spoiled a movie for me. Looking at the cast list ruined a twist, because if a character has a fake name and his/her real name is revealed later on, IMDB lists both names next to the actor that plays that character. So now I know one of the twists.
