After all the recent posts on r/antiwork, this Veridian commercial seemed most appropriate… “Veridian Dynamics. Friendship. It's so important. But it's different at work. Time spent with friends at work robs your employer of productivity. And robbing people is wrong. Veridian Dynamics. Friendship. It's the same as stealing.”

Rome sweet Rome


rockeh

I was blown away by it's depiction of Rome as a real city, with chickens in the streets and dirty graffiti on people's houses


overts

Rome was HBO’s most expensive show until Game of Thrones. Most of the reason it was so expensive was because of how elaborate and detailed the setting was. The first season cost over $100 million and the high cost per episode is probably why HBO canceled it.


[deleted]

The weakest part of *Rome* is the rushed pacing in the 2nd season, and that's just because they were trying to wrap it up when they were told they were being cancelled.


Friend-Computer

IIRC, it was around the midpoint of Season 2 so the first half has pretty decent pacing, but they really had to rush the second half. I know they said they had plans to more fully flesh out Herod and the war in Egypt as major plot points.


redhand22

Truly my favorite TV series of all time for the friendship, nay brotherhood. And Titus Pullo. 13th!

Over the garden wall.


staypuftmarcelo

It's a great show that's is heavily mismarketed as a sad and depressing show. I thought it was a lot of fun and its humor excels

“Stop calling me ‘young lady’!” “Whatever you say, old man!”


grizno

"Stop calling me old lady" "Yes sir, young man" It's because of this show i started calling people young man. And saying "it's a rock fact!" Edit: calling not cooking


isowon

"Ooooh, potatoes and molasses..."


MyBrassPiece

But it does have many allusions to death in general, limbo, the afterlife. It's just done so well. This show blew me away the first time I saw it.


Unique_name256

100%. It's like nothing else I've ever seen while being so reminiscent of growing up in the 70s in the USA. All those folklore cartoons with quirky humor. The sometimes odd unintended creepiness of kids shows. The song and dance numbers. It felt like so many of the short films on reels that teachers would show their in their classrooms...even that flickering quality of watching projected movies was somehow conveyed. All those stories that had lessons in them and the danger to children if not heeded. The music and the art of the animation were incredible. Loved this show so much.

Over the Garden Wall is the closest thing to a masterpiece I’ve ever seen.

mister_atoms

Don’t shoot the messenger, but some people don’t care for the first season. But not me, I love Brian Blessed.


Amanystya

I think that's partly because the chemistry between the characters wasn't quite there and Blackadder wasn't as likeable as a protagonist. He was still sneaky in the other seasons, but in the first one he seemed overly cowardly and underhanded. I personally thought that it suited the comedy well and Brian Blessed is fantastic. I can see why people prefer the more charismatic/intelligent iterations of Black Adder though


ivy_bound

I think the real difference was competence. In the first season, Blackadder was a coward and an idiot, on par with Percy and Baldrick. From the second season onward, he was intelligent, but consistently foiled by terrible luck and unintelligent lackies.


chrissssmith

What's interesting is the first season had a big, big budget by BBC standards. There is a castle, shots of Blackadder on horseback, lots of extras etc. It wasn't well regarded at the time; which is why the first season is still not rated too highly. It got cancelled as a result; the second season only got green lit when they agreed to basically spend as little money as possible; as a result, the second season only has about three sets, pretty much no stunts or special effects and a tiny cast - and the result is that the comedy gets the opportunity to take front and centre stage, and the second season is miles better, funnier and more memorable.

Professor_Mike_2020

Almost Human. Karl Urban and Michael Ealy. It was a fuckin BADASS show, kinda early-era cyberpunkish/blade runner type world where cops had AI bots as partners. Unfortunately got cancelled by FOX and left the story wide open for future seasons but the last episode was bitter sweet.

Pushing Daisies was a really fun and pretty show.

Jeez. Look up the life of the real Captain Sobel if you really want to be depressed as fuck.


LadyBonersAweigh

>In 1970, Sobel shot himself in the head with a small-caliber pistol in an attempted suicide. The bullet entered his left temple, passed behind his eyes, and exited the other side of his head. Both of his optic nerves were severed by the shot, leaving him blind. Soon afterward, he began living at a VA assisted-living facility in Waukegan, Illinois. He died there of malnutrition on 30 September 1987. No memorial services were held for him.

Scevs

The opening scene of the second episode is one of the most terrifying things a human could ever experience.


SissyKittyKira

I’m rewatching the series now and just watched the episode earlier. I completely agree, I can’t even imagine.


LeviathanIsI

“In thinking back on the days of Easy Company, I’m treasuring my remark to a grandson who asked, ‘Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?’ ‘No,’ I answered, ‘but I served in a company of heroes.‘”


floog

Perfection. For some reason I never got around to watching The Pacific but I just started on that one this week.


kyp44

I watch each of these about once a year back to back. I prefer BoB, but I have seen it more so know it better, and The Pacific seems to get better with each subsequent viewing. I also watch the fantastic German miniseries Generation War, which I recommend if anyone hasn't seen it.


unicorns16

you've probably already heard but there's a new series called masters of the air coming out soon which is apparently in the same style also - have you seen generation kill ? (not ww2 but still)


bigblukrew

"As the great warrior poet Ice Cube once said, 'If the day does not require an AK, it is good'"


deep_space_artifacts

I watched this when I was between employment gigs. It wasn't my goal but I watched the first episode and it turned into a a Band of Brothersathon. I think my roommate left for work and and when he got home he said, "damn, you're still watching?"


BigChris503

I see it as a single, ten hour movie. With convenient stopping points for bathroom/refreshment breaks.


BrokeBoi20

I really enjoyed MindHunters. Pretty big into suspense, drama crime type shows so this blew it out of the water for me.


IamtheHarpy

I'm horribly disappointed we won't see the BTK storyline finish but it was so good


[deleted]

The glaring issue with that is the 30 year gap between season 2 and his apprehension. They could do it, but it would have to be a mostly new cast, Holden aged? Maybe...


Riichildis

I still have "dreamhome heartache" stuck in my head. This show featured great music as well. (Thanks for the vibing award, probably one of my favorite reddits awards :D)


barto5

It is well done. The guy that plays Edmund Kemper is great!


BrokeBoi20

Ed was amazingly casted. I was a big fan of the consistency of using Charles Masons actor for Mindhunter and Once Upon a time in Hollywood


Officer412-L

He also plays Hazel in the Umbrella Academy.


doomlite

All the cast to include directors have been let out of their contracts, so we prob won’t get a third.

imperfectgoddess

When Basil points to his dead car and says in a threatening voice, "Now, look..." Kills me every time.


mikel145

One thing about British tv in that they know when to end it. Even if a show is popular.


dashauskat

It's because it's made completely differently. You create an idea, write it, take it to a studio, they fund it and then off you go to make it with as much creative control as you've negotiated. Generally there is one or two people behind these concepts and it's extremely labour intensive for them, there is no staff writers and generally quite a small crew. The creators are involved in the process start to finish, which means less output in terms of volume, less seasons (series) but generally great quality.


dont_disturb_the_cat

Reminds me of the line in “The Good Place”, where Tahani talks about a brilliant TV show that ran for 16 years on the BBC: “they did nearly thirty episodes!”

Dangerous-Yam-6831

This is the one show that REALLY bothers me they can never make again. That cast was literally perfect, and they’ll never be that young again. I know that can be said about a lot of shows…but it kills me this show wasn’t ever finished.


fastermouse

Lindsey getting in that van to the sounds of Ripple almost makes me like the Dead. It's a fucking beautiful meld of visuals and music.


d1rron

Is it worth watching now?


YawnfaceDM

It absolutely is. Do yourself a favor and watch it friend.


planejane

It's worth it knowing you're going to have a season of really great television. It's horribly bittersweet because you see it had the potential to go on for so much longer.


smootfloops

I agree. Absolutely heartbreaking


teddyburges

Such a shame too. The planned season 2 storyline of one of the kids having a abnormal friendship with his drama teacher (who is a alcoholic) and driving her around, bailing her out and helping her get sober, sounded amazing! (Apparently the storyline was inspired by creator Judd Apatow's real life experience of having to bail out his alcoholic drama teacher when he was a sophomore and help her get to her car cause she got drunk and left it at the bar).


nowhereman136

I heard one of the plot lines they were gonna do was Bill (Martin Starr) goes through a growth spurt and gets on the football team. He likes the popularity and starts to connect with Coach Fredricks, who is still dating his mom. But this alienates his friendship with Sam and Neal. I actually could totally see Bill becoming a football player, given his height it wouldve been easy to pad his clothes to make him look bulkier. wouldve been an interesting dynamic to have a rising star on the football team try to hide that fact that he's really a geek


LobcockLittle

Martin Starr is the best child actor i have ever seen! I remember in their 10 year anniversary they said he was the only one that wasn't like his character.

Dude you gotta check out Our Flag Means Death. Rhys Darby finally got to star in his on series and it’s brilliant. It’s on HBO and I can’t wait for season two. Loosely based on the story of Stede Bonnet the Gentleman Pirate and Blackbeard.


Mojak66

Justified. The best bad guys ever.


H_Civic

Fuck yeah. Walton Goggins is still my favorite villain of all time. I rewatched recently, and I kinda like him more than Raylan


CrocodileJock

Not seen Justifed, but may have to watch it on the strength of Walton Goggins. I loved him in The Shield.


TerrorDino

Goggins was meant to be the season 1 over arching bad guy only. 1 and done so to speak. Man was in every episode I believe, of all the seasons. They did, after all, dig coal together.


tokes_4_DE

Watch it! Hes great in the shield of course, but it doenst even compare to his role in justified. The entire show ends up revolving around him and hes not even the main character. Hes absolutely FANTASTIC in justified, award winning performance.


PawneePorpoise

I'm binge watching this series for the first time right now. I'm on S4 after a week and a half and I can't stop. It's so excellent so far so it's good to hear it ends well too!

[удалено]


ravenouscartoon

They way Wynn freaks out later in the season when Raylan plays Harlan roulette with him “Jesus christ!” Is such a good pay off. I also like when Raylans ‘S being interviewed by the FBI about how a bullet with his fingerprint on gets somewhere and he explains about “next ones coming faster” and the agent responds “that’s the coolest shit I’ve ever heard”. Oh this show is just so good

gullyfoyle777

I'm so disappointed I had to scroll this far to find your comment. Justified was a fucking fantastic show and I don't even like cop shows. Boyd was a goddamn treasure as a villain. Everyone who was in that series was great!


Bazoun

“We dug coal together.” Perfect line!


TKJ

All these comments, and nobody mentions Art and Rylan's back-and-forth throughout the series? Art: "She's the best marshall I've got." Raylan: "You realize I'm sitting right here?" Art: "I do."

Chernobyl. Perfect Television.


kerred

Especially the addendum about their changes to the actual history, I would love more supplemental material like that after a historic series.


sblumens

You're in luck...there is a 5-6 part podcast of exactly this! Includes Jared Harris. It's like an extended directors cut (audio), podcast episodes are synched to the show.


RunsWthScizzors

Yes, I was just talking with a friend about how I have so much respect for the show runners choosing to only do 5 episodes. I will happily take 5 absolute perfect episodes that fully tell a story instead of 10-22 episodes or countless seasons. Chernobyl is easily top 3 shows ever made and does so much with only ~5 hours of screen time.


juniper-mint

I'm currently in the middle of my 4th time watching it and I cannot figure out why I am always so invested in *actually* rewatching it instead of just having it playing in the background while I do other things. I knew what happened before I even watched the series, and I definitely know what happens in each episode after 3 watches. Its just... so good. It makes me feel a weirdly intense nostalgic pain about something that happened 4 years before I was even born and has nothing to do with me.


Offtherailspcast

To me, it's like a horror movie. It's just this gross, dirty, grimy disgusting environment and the whole tone of the show is just dread and doom. It fucking rules. I feel like I'm getting radiation poisoning as I watch it


dreamwavedev

Not a single second of that show wasn't beautifully haunting


PurpleFirebird

The scene at the end of episode 2, where they're in the flooded section, and the flashlights gradually fail as their dosimeters are going crazy is possibly the most chilling thing I've ever seen on TV


LittlestSlipper55

I remember sitting upright in my chair, hands clenched at the end, eyes wide and muttering "Omg, get out, get out of there, please get out of there..." . I legit felt a weight of my shoulders next episode when I saw they survived, and more importantly lived long and healthy lives thereafter.
