I really don't get the love for Transparent.  I tried. I wanted to like it.

Boston Legal

just finished a rewatch of season 1. not quite as satisfying as I recall, but it probably gets better.

Thing I like best about Gotham is it's on a monday night. Something to easy into the week.

Gotham is a hot mess, but I havn't ditched it yet.  Its so contrived, and constrained by the decades of history.

We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.

My issue with Gotham is "oh, here are ALL the batman characters before you knew them. Ha ha."

I just love the little bruce wayne moments. Really enjoying his weirdness. Harvey Bullock is cool too.
Speaking of not the best- just caught a Teen Titans Go episode from a few weeks ago. If you arent familiar, it takes a bunch of Dc teen superheroes and puts them in 10minute shorts done with a vert cartoony art style and something like the regular show humour. Its pretty decent. The episode in question featured all the Robins (Dick,Tim,Jason and Carrie Kelly) in a competition to see who is the best one.
Pretty damn funny. Especially if you know the characters from the recent animated movies and the 60s series.

I feel like everyone should at least try an episode of Episodes.
Its one of the few shows that really gets me laughing out loud these days. Matt LeBlanc is doing stellar work.
I feel like his character is what Joey would have been after 20years of success. But more of an asshole.

Episodes is a good inclusion under this. Funny premise. Great acting. But. Hrm. Just stopped watching after most of the first season I think.

I feel like I really want to love Sleepy Hollow, but truth be told I haven't watched it since a few episodes into the second season.

I really hate to put Bob's burgers on this list but I feel like its gone downhill.  It is however still a very good show, just no longer great.

A good one too. Such potential, I think. The "mystery" of who Ichabod Crane was should have been played out more. The cause of the murders, etc. Instead they sorta just dumped the whole universe into your laps in ep 1. And then this small town had so many brutal murders, it made me wonder why the state wasn't sending in the national guard.

Transparent isn't very good.  The premise has excellent promise and Jeffrey Tambor in the leading role is simply outstanding, but the likeability of the rest of his family makes this show such a chore.  Imagine Arrested Development level of self-involvement minus the laughs to deflate it.

I'm only half-way through the season, so maybe the show will find its stride in the rest of the episodes but at the moment I have to say I'm disappointed.  All the reviews are raving about how awesome it is.
