Posts Tagged ‘Terra Nova’

As many of you know, I’ve recently taken Terra Nova off of my TV queue this fall.  So to fill its shoes, I’ve been heavily recommended that FX’s American Horror Story is a juicy and horrifying tale of a family in a cursed house.  The final push to start this series is when the latest Entertainment Weekly arrived when its two major characters and a man in a rubber suit were on the cover.  So after watching the first episode, I literally had my hand over my face the entire fifty minutes and nearly successfully shat my pants .  The show is graphic, tense, and even highly sexual, something that my TV queue is lacking [Dexter can only have so much blood, gore, and sex].  And I haven’t regretted starting it ever since.

It is difficult to write this because Terra Nova showed so much promise.  And by so much promise, I meant there’s f*cking dinosaurs in it.  So I’ve finally caught up with Terra Nova this week, and instead of doing another Fall TV check up, I decided to write a warning obituary for a specific series.  In a season where TV can easily take over your life if you’re ambitious enough, you have to filter what you watch or instead you’ll also be watching your grades plummet.  So after giving Terra Nova a chance, I’ve become bored with it’s clunky dialogue, uninteresting side plots, and its general lack of DINOSAURS.

Top Banana: Arrested Development coming back for a mini season AND a movie

When I read this article, I literally, in the word of the infamous analrapist [an analyzing therapist] Tobias Funke, ‘blue myself’.  In terms of comedy and wit, there isn’t a show more clever or funny than Mike Hurwitz’s Arrested Development, which ran from 2003-2006.  After 3 years, the show has developed a largely dedicated fanbase all protesting for a resurrection of the show or a movie.  And for the past few years, all actors from the show including: Jason Bateman, Will Arnet, Jeffrey Tambor have all claimed ‘a movie is in the works, and the script is being written’ that revealed very little on the actual progress of a movie being made.  So you can tell the internet rejoiced when Mike Hurwitz announced that not only were we getting a movie, but we’re getting a miniature season BEFORE the movie.  A season AND a movie!?!!?  It’s only a dream that can come true and it’s actually the smartest thing they could’ve done seeing as making a movie out of the blue probably wouldn’t have been a good idea.  From articles I’ve read, the miniature season, consisting of about 9 to 10 episodes will focus on one character each that gives off a ‘where are they now’ vibe that will lead up to the movie.  Start getting excited.  2013 has something looking forward to.

I wasn’t able to comment on how the season [and series] opening of the television show’s I’ve been watching.  In all honesty, each opening could have it’s own article dedicated to them [those will be saved for a later date], but in essence of time, consider this a check up commenting on how strong each series is so far, and where they can improve.  This is a good time for a check up because one cannot judge how well the series will do this season based on the opener, but rather the follow up episodes that will likely be more closer to setting the mood of the entire season run.  Hit the jump to see if you agree.  Spoilers ahead, watch your step.

Fall TV is the most exciting thing to happen to me this year.  It was only early this year I discovered the wonders of Television.  I’d hate to say it, but TV just might be getting an edge on film in the heated debate within my head.  We’re not going to get into that right now, maybe on a rainy day and I want to write a 3,000 word essay.  Anyways, back to the excitement of Fall TV.  Everyone is expecting new shows and old shows to return and the marketing team’s best way to attract new and old fanbases is of course the promos.  Below, I’ve compiled a list of videos of instances where the marketing team has succeeded and I will watch the season opening.  Let me know if I missed anything you’re going to watch.
