TV Thoughts: The Good Guys – “Pilot”

May 28, 2010

The new show from Matt Nix (the creator of Burn Notice) premiered last week on FOX, but it airs the pilot again next week at it’s normal time on Monday at 9 PM followed by new episodes the following week.  I thought I’d take a quick look at the pilot episode after the jump.

TV Thoughts: Chuck – “Chuck vs. the Subway” and “Chuck vs. the Ring: Part II”

May 26, 2010

The entirety of the up and down season 3 of Chuck ended last night on a good note with some great possibilities for season 4 (Yay!).  My thoughts on the finale and season 3 in general after the jump.

Trailer Alert: The Adjustment Bureau

May 25, 2010

I have been meaning to post this trailer for a couple of weeks and I am sorry it took me so long to get around to it.  The short stories of Philip K. Dick have been translated into so many different films and follow so many different paths that it is difficult to keep track of them all.  This film, The Adjustment Bureau, is based off of his short story, “Adjustment Team” which I have not read.  I hope that I will have a chance to read it before the film comes out though because the trailer makes the story look like a solid drama with some big sci-fi themes and a few good chase scenes.  Matt Damon and Emily Blunt look like a believable couple and the actual adjustment team looks like I good mix between stoic and creepy.  Let’s hope that the film lives up to this trailer when it is released on September 17, 2010.

TV Thoughts: 30 Rock – “I Do Do”

May 25, 2010

30 Rock as well as The Office has had a bit of a down year, though there are normally more than enough jokes to keep me laughing for a half-hour episode, the plotlines became a bit repetitive and the writers were focusing on what to me is one of the least interesting parts of the show.  Hopefully the season 4 finale brought some closure to those plotlines so we can move ahead into new territory next season.  My thoughts after the jump.

TV Thoughts: The Office – “Whistleblower”

May 24, 2010

The Office has had a very down year this year.  Some significant things happened (Jim and Pam’s wedding followed by them having a child), but the show was just off and it was difficult at times to see the brilliance of the show that I fell in love with 3 or 4 seasons ago.  That said, I didn’t think the finale of season 6 was bad and my thoughts are after the jump.

TV Thoughts: Parks and Recreation – “Freddy Spaghetti”

May 23, 2010

NBC has renewed Parks and Recreation for season 3, but they announced the sad news at their up-front this past week that they are holding it until mid-season.  So it potentially might not be until January 2011 that we see new episodes of this hilarious show.  My thoughts on the season 2 finale after the jump.

TV Thoughts: Community – “Pascal’s Triangle Revisited”

May 22, 2010

Due to the fact that all of the NBC comedies had season finales this week, I am going to give them all separate posts, so let me know what you think of each one.  Thoughts on the Community finale after the jump.
