My thoughts on various TV shows

Just like the movie version this is just my thoughts on some of the things I have watched from the TV side of things. To keep this fresh this is only taking in account what I seen since 12/7/10. Their are also some shows not listed that will get their own posts.

Transformers Prime s1e1-5 (or season zero) “Darkness Rising (Parts 1-5)”
This is a very good show and hope to keep up with it. I think it is good they are trying to condense the various versions of Transformers into one standard continuity. The show pulls no punches when it comes to the fight scenes. You can see the echos from the past media incarnations in the show especially the recent movie and animated series. The throwbacks to the old generation one stuff like lines ripped directly from the original movie was especially awesome. Keeping this vague as possible some small moments I enjoyed were Afterburner to the face, zombie robots and the brutality of the fight scenes.

The Closer s6e11 “Old Money”
I liked the opening as it was just balls to the wall crazy. The mind games Brenda played with the suspects were fun to watch. The whole shakeup of the department subplot after last episode’s cliffhanger is moving along nicely. My only nitpicks are not anything to do with the show in particular just at the way TV works. First thing is the silly thing of showing 10 episodes straight though then going on a long hiatus. Then coming back to show 2 or 3 episodes followed back a half a year break. Seriously did not even know their was a new episode on until later the next day. The second thing is recently with this genre of TV the bad cop or attack on a cop storyline seems to occur a lot.

Little People Big World s6e19&20 “Twins at Twenty” & “Moving Out”
The last two episodes of the series was a bit of a letdown. The story arc of these two episodes appear to be about changes but at the end of the show everything stayed the same.
Being based in real life I guess that was inevitable though.
The only real change was ending of the show. Which sad to say may be a good thing as the family looks to be going though a rough time. Hopefully everything works out for them in the end.

Mythbusters s8e22 “President’s Challenge”
Fun episode but the Ancient Death Ray 3.0 myth seemed unnecessary and an excuse to get the President involved. The promoting of science and math among young people is a good cause but wished they did something else to promote it. I guess I have to see it in action but did not get how a netted barrier was helping aim their mirrors. Probably feel stupid when I finally understand the concept. The car flip Myth was just crazy fun but man they went though a ton of cars. They probably get a discount at the junkyard.
