And you Trollheart. It's only been 15 months since my last post.

Decided to finally check out Breaking Bad.
Pretty good, although not as awesome as everyone makes it out to be and most of the side-plots are just filler to me.

I get what you mean, but do you have some examples? I can think of a few but I don't know how far you are.

I'm in the middle of season two.
Dunno, mostly stuff involving his wife, also her sister and her husband.
I get that probably most of it did or will end up being somehow important to the main plot but it often feels kinda half-assed.

I think that a lot of that is to illustrate just how dull his regular life is and why he'd jump to those decisions. I do think that Marie is a lazily underdeveloped character though.

This episode was honestly so ridiculous it was great

Neither of his shows were ever good

No it wasn't. I've seen episodes where you can groan and still laugh - the one where Joe decides to end his life at Niagra Falls, for instance (FG) or the one where Stan wants to spend his holidays alone so puts his family in a sort of virtual reality every year (AD) - but this did nothing but irritate and frustrate me. It was terrible. It was not so terrible it was good, it was just simply terrible.

FG and AD both had their moments, but the emphasis is very firmly on the "had" in that sentence. They should quit now, not while they're ahead (cos they're not), not before they embarrass themselves (cos that ship has sailed a long time ago) but just out of pure respect for their ex-viewership.

I think Family Guy, American Dad, and The Simpsons should all enter a suicide pact.

Homer would never go through with it. Come to think of it, Stan would probably trick the other two into carrying it out and then have blanks in his gun or a special rope that breaks at the crucial moment or something. But yeah, I agree. Can't really think of a "mature animated show" that still stands up today. How's South Park these days? Watched some old episodes yesterday, reminded me how great it can be. Something about porn channels and Minecraft?
