TV SUPERLATIVES: April and May, 2019

TV Superlatives are a pain in the ass. I love coming up with them–I kind of love superlatives in general–but it’s hard to keep up when there are, at any given time, 87 different TV shows to watch, and they can start any month and be any episode length, and available all at once or only week-to-week. I tried for a couple of years and eventually gave up.

Now, I’m going to try something new, and we’ll see if it works or not, but here it is: Quarterly TV Superlatives! Or, who knows, maybe Occasional TV Superlatives! Look, it’s a work in progress. But the idea is to discuss whatever TV I’ve been watching recently (whether it’s currently airing or not) and come up with fun awards like Best Musical Number, Worst Death, or Best Reaction to a Supposedly Dead Parent Coming Back to Life.

For today’s post, we’ll be focusing on the television I’ve been watching during, say, the past two months or so. Any spoilers, as always, will be clearly marked in the very hard-to-miss Spoiler Section.

With that all said, let’s get started, shall we?

FAVORITE MUSICAL NUMBER

Larry singing Kelly Clarkson’s “People Like Us” – Doom Patrol

People. If you have not been watching Doom Patrol, you’ve been missing some of the wildest, weirdest shit on TV right now, and I know what a big statement that is these days.

This episode features a sentient, teleporting, genderqueer street named Danny, and I know that sounds like some asshole making a parody out of SJWs, but it’s actually really uplifting and funny without ever punching down. This scene in particular, where Matt Bomer sings his heart out on stage at the Peeping Tom’s Perpetual Cabaret, hit me right in the Feels. It’s a great character moment, joyful and moving and ultimately kind of heartbreaking, and really wasn’t at all what I expected when I started this show.

FAVORITE NEW PLAYER

Anson Mount – Star Trek: Discovery

When CBS initially announced that Christopher Pike would be taking command of Discovery, I was pretty disappointed. For one, I’d been looking forward to seeing what Saru would be like as captain. For another, I watched TOS’s unaired pilot, and Pike was kind of a dick. Besides, the only thing I knew Anson Mount from was Inhumans, and while I didn’t actually watch the show myself, it looked . . . pretty bad. Its swift cancellation was no surprise to anyone.

But as Pike, Anson Mount is kind of a revelation. His performance is really imbued with this sort of low-key swagger, an optimistic pioneering spirit that’s reminiscent of TOS without being a parody of it. Also, he’s not an asshole this time! Honestly, Pike is charismatic and likable as hell, so much so that by the end of the season, I would happily have watched him captain the Discovery for another few years.

Honorable Mentions: Ramona Young (Legends of Tomorrow); Ethan Suplee (Santa Clarita Diet); Zehra Fazal (Young Justice); Tig Notaro (Star Trek: Discovery)

FAVORITE VILLAIN

Mr. Nobody – Doom Patrol

Oh, man. There isn’t anyone on this Earth who makes me happier than Alan Tudyk on Doom Patrol. Mr. Nobody is the sarcastic, hilarious, meta supervillain I didn’t know I needed in my life. He narrates. It’s beautiful.

Honorable Mentions: Cersei (Game of Thrones); Dobrivoje Poplovic (Santa Clarita Diet); Catra (She-Ra); Entrapta (She-Ra); Scorpia (She-Ra); Tabitha (Legends of Tomorrow)

CHARACTERS WHO MOST DESERVE A BETTER SHOW

Starfire + Beast Boy – Titans

I’m definitely tempted to go with Magnus and Alec here, since I would’ve watched a Shadowhunters spinoff starring them in a heartbeat. Also, half the characters on Game of Thrones, who deserved a better final season than they got. But instead I’m picking Starfire and Beast Boy, mostly because they’re the biggest reasons this tonally inconsistent show works at all. It sure isn’t because of Dick Grayson, who is easily the weakest character in the whole thing–it’s like 11 episodes of Murder Excuses Volleyball with him, all “I’m gonna kill this dude” one episode, then “you can’t kill people!’ the next, with a heavy side of “Really, it’s fucking Batman’s fault!” ALL. THE. TIME.

Starfire and Beast Boy are pretty great, though. Starfire is absolutely nothing like her Teen Titans counterpart, of course, but she’s still a lot of fun: mysterious, badass, funny. And as the lighthearted comic relief of the show, Beast Boy is sorely needed. I really enjoy the dynamic he brings to Titans. (He also introduces us to the Doom Patrol, which I’m incredibly grateful for, because who knows if I would’ve checked the show out otherwise.)

Titans is watchable enough, like, there are definitely scenes and song selections I did enjoy . . . but in the long run, it’s also pretty forgettable, considering that DC is still trying to manage the precarious balance between “dark” and “actually entertaining.” Anna Diop and Ryan Potter are the primary reasons to check this one out, but honestly, I’d probably be happier if Starfire and Beast Boy just jumped ship and landed over on Doom Patrol in Season 2.

Honorable Mentions: Magnus & Alec (Shadowhunters); Daenerys (Game of Thrones); Cersei (Game of Thrones)

BEST SPARRING SCENE

Alec vs. Magnus – Shadowhunters

All the best fight scenes, I think, get to explore the characters involved–what weapons they pick says something about them, just like how they improvise and if they prefer flirty banter or ominous silence, etc. I have recently begun to wonder if maybe sparring scenes get the best opportunity to really dive into character simply because the stakes are actually lower, like, you don’t have to worry about the fate of the world here. It’s just Person A, Person B, and whatever they’re bringing to the mat between them. I think this might be why some of my favorite fight scenes are sparring scenes, and why I love this particular one so much. That, and I’m totally Malec obsessed, of course.

The choreography on this, while fun, definitely isn’t going to beat out anything on, say, Netflix or HBO because Shadowhunters is a Freeform show with a Freeform shooting schedule and budget. But this is a fun, flirty scene–Magnus, clearly, is not the ominous, silent type–that really plays up those tiny character beats. My own personal favorite moments are a) Magnus playfully dance-spinning away from Alec, and b) Matthew Daddario’s low, gritted-teeth delivery of the word “competition.”

I am not going to tell you how many times I’ve rewatched this scene, but whatever number you’re guessing, it’s probably higher.

Honorable Mention: Jace vs. Simon – Shadowhunters

MOST PAINFUL CANCELLATION

Santa Clarita Diet

Shadowhunters is my ridiculous jam, but I’ve been aware of its doom for a while now, and at least it got the chance to have some kind of conclusion, hurried though it was. Meanwhile, I’m so annoyed with Game of Thrones that I’m frankly just happy it’s over at this point. But Santa Clarita Diet, man. That one still hurts.

What might have initially started out as a one-joke premise really grew into something else: sure, it’s silly, gory fun with a lot of suburbia, barf, and real estate jokes, but it’s also got this really great family dynamic, a surprisingly healthy marriage to ship, and I swear to God, some of the funniest dialogue on television. Drew Barrymore really grows into her character, Liv Hewson is consistently awesome as Abby, Skylar Gisondo is equally funny as Eric, and you just haven’t truly experienced joy until you’ve watched Timothy Olyphant teetering on the edge of a never-ending series of hysterical meltdowns. He is so damn good in this show. It kills me.

Losing Santa Clarita Diet absolutely sucks. Losing it after the third season’s massive cliffhanger is a mallet to the goddamn funny bone. We will never know what happens now, and I am filled with rage.

MOST WELCOME RETURN

Young Justice

Bringing back old shows has been the thing to do these last few years, but often they’re shows I don’t care about (say, Fuller House, 24, Will & Grace, etc.) or else they’re ones that come back and stumble HARD (say, Gilmore Girls or The X-Files). Young Justice, however, finally got its third season on DC Universe after its untimely cancellation back in 2013, and I think it’s just as good as it ever was.

Initially, I was a bit disappointed with the big time jump (though not surprised, considering the time jump between Seasons 1 and 2) and a little amused they didn’t just end up calling this Justice (aka, the Titans method), considering our original heroes are very much adults now. Still, we’ve got some fresh young blood, as it were, to make the title semi-accurate. More importantly, this show is still a lot of fun. Definitely a bit darker than the first two seasons: more blood, yes, and more gory–if generally temporary–deaths. But there’s also a lot of small moments of humor and funny asides throughout the season to balance that out. I also really like how the show successfully builds stuff over time: Beast Boy’s TV show, for instance, or the Goode Goggles. And oh man, that Beast Boy episode. Like, that was both funnier and hit harder than I ever expected it to. Shit, Young Justice has been so on point this season that I didn’t even mind the Vandal Savage History Lesson episode.

My only real disappointment with the show is that I wish there was a little more focus on the original members. We still get them, but not quite as much as I’d like. (Miss Martian, I think, gets the absolute least to do.) Hopefully we’ll see more of them when the show returns in July.

FAVORITE SHIP

Malec – Shadowhunters

I mean, seriously. They are the literal reason I started watching this show. Out of mild curiosity, I checked out this fanvid (oh, and this one, too), became even more curious about these characters, and watched enough scenes on Youtube that I realized, fuck it, I’m gonna have to watch this whole show now. A romantic ship is occasionally, though very rarely, my favorite aspect of a show, but I think this might the first time any ship has actually enticed me to watch anything.

It helps that this season in particular is so jam-packed with spectacular Malec moments–and not just the scene I already mentioned above. I’d talk more about them, but then I’d have to move this whole entry into the Spoiler Section, and I’d rather not do that. But I will say for the zero people out there who are worried: after much, much angst, Magnus and Alec get a happy ending. I honestly think there might have been a small-scale revolution if they hadn’t. I’m definitely not the only one crazy about these two.

Honorable Mentions: Jake and Amy (Brooklyn Nine-Nine); Joel and Sheila (Santa Clarita Diet)

All right, that’s it for the Non-Spoiler Awards. Continue at your own peril.

BEST REACTION TO A SUPPOSEDLY DEAD PARENT COMING BACK TO LIFE

Michael – Star Trek Discovery

If there’s one thing I’ve discovered from my many years of watching SF/F/H TV, it’s that dead parents are always coming back to life. But Michael’s reaction–where she wakes up and naturally assumes that Dead Mom was a near-death hallucination, only to instinctually deny the truth when she’s told otherwise, almost assuring the others (and herself) that her mother died–is such a nice bit of acting. You watch it and just want to give her a really big hug. I have so many ups-and-downs with Discovery, but I really enjoy Sonequa Martin-Green’s performance, especially in this second season.

MOST “I’M NOT CRYING, YOU’RE CRYING” SCENE

Bow’s parents accept he’s not a historian – She-Ra and The Princesses of Power

Ugh. Bow’s dads are the worst, and by the worst, I mean they’re fucking adorable and totally made me tear up, even though I’m supposed to be a cold-hearted bastard who, like Loki, is unmoved by sentiment, much less a damn children’s cartoon. But when Bow confesses that he can’t keep lying to them anymore, and George tells him, “What’s breaking our hearts is the fact that you thought you had to lie about who you are,” followed by a tearful Lance, all, “We thought we were being supportive, but really we were being terrible!” Just, blarg, with the emotions.

Stupid show. Stupid feelings.

BEST BADASS MOMENT

Arya kills The Night King – Game of Thrones

Season 8 of GoT is a hot fucking mess, but there were a few good things about it, and Arya taking out the Night King is one of them. This scene was AWESOME, and seriously, anyone calling Arya a Mary Sue at this point, after she’s spent literal seasons becoming a face-changing killing machine, is just so . . . ugh. They are not worthy of my articulation.

If we could just pretend Season 8 only consisted of Episode 2 and Episode 3, I feel like we’d all be a lot happier.

Honorable Mentions: Sansa telling Edmure to sit down (Game of Thrones); Starfire kicks some assholes’ asses in a diner (Titans); Magnus faces off with Lilith (Shadowhunters)

BEST WTF MOMENT

The Revenge of Admiral Whiskers – Doom Patrol

(Fair warning: clip includes the sudden, bloody demise of Mommy Mouse. Also, profanity.)

I mean, Doom Patrol itself is one long, continuous series of WTF moments, so it’s really hard to pick just one. Do you go with any of the various times Mr. Nobody breaks the fourth wall, up to and including wearing a ton of Doom Patrol merchandise? Do you go with the guy who accidentally flexes the wrong psychic muscle and makes everyone orgasm? Do you go with Cliff getting swallowed by a giant rat, climbing back up the rat’s throat, and jumping into a giant cockroach’s mouth as said rat and cockroach begin making out? (I mean, do I even really need to explain why Doom Patrol is winning for both FAVORITE NEW SHOW and FAVORITE SUPERHERO SHOW?)

Obviously, you could go with any of these. I, however, am choosing to pick The Revenge of Admiral Whiskers, because Mr. Nobody also does some impressive fourth-wall breaking here, and more importantly, I don’t think anything has made me laugh harder all year. “But I’m a woodland creature!” HA! This moment alone was worth the DC Universe subscription.

Honorable Mentions for Best WTF Moment: Literally everything I mentioned in the first paragraph, plus whatever else happened that I’m currently forgetting (Doom Patrol); Mr. Ball Legs crawls into Joel’s ear (Santa Clarita Diet); The Legends + Ghost Hank resurrect Nate by singing “Sweet Baby James” (Legends of Tomorrow)

Honorable Mentions for Favorite Superhero Show: Legends of Tomorrow; Young Justice

FAVORITE RETURN GUEST STAR

Tim Meadows – Brooklyn Nine-Nine

I don’t know, man. There’s just something about Caleb, the super friendly cannibal killer, that cracks me up, particularly his and Jake’s easy rapport and, of course, Boyle’s obvious jealousy. (“Charles, he’s serving three life sentences. No need to flex.” HA.) Dude’s just so delightful. I would happily watch Jake come down for serial killer insight at least once a season.

Also, yes, of course, the “chatroom for people who like to talk about eating human beings but definitely won’t act on it” is hosted on Reddit.

Honorable Mentions: Kyra Sedgwick (Brooklyn Nine-Nine); Ken Marino (Brooklyn Nine-Nine); Dean Winters (Brooklyn Nine-Nine); Maggie Lawson (Santa Clarita Diet); Casper Crump (Legends of Tomorrow)

WORST TWIST

Bran becomes King – Game of Thrones

Honest to God. No disrespect intended to Peter Dinklage, but almost everything Tyrion says in this episode is such a prime example of Shut Up, Writers, and seriously, SHUT UP, WRITERS. Bran’s story could have been epic; instead, he has one of the weakest narratives in the entire show. It is absurdly easy to write Bran out of the story without anything being impacted. Bran reveals that Jon is the true heir? Who gives a shit, Sam and Gilly figured that out, too. The Night King wants to kill Bran because he knows everything in the past, present, and future? Cool, but Bran never really uses that knowledge against the Night King in any meaningful way. Bran has been more plot device than character for seasons, and he’s not even a particularly good plot device. Besides, I don’t know about you, but I’m not sure I’d want my king to be some spooky ass dude who occasionally says something weird and vague before going away to, I don’t know, stare blankly in a corner. Like, meh? Maybe not leadership material?

Also, come on. Bran the Broken? Jesus, you all are assholes.

BEST DEATH

Lyanna Mormont – Game of Thrones

I mean, I hated it because goddamn it, I wanted Lyanna to LIVE. That being said, she went out like a BOSS, killing a goddamn giant. It was a death worthy of her character and didn’t feel cheap or rushed, unlike almost literally everyone else in this fucking show.

Honorable Mentions: Nora (The Flash)

WORST DEATH

Cersei – Game of Thrones

It’s not just the rocks. Admittedly, the rocks are lame and I hate them, but it’s mostly that Cersei, one of the most badass, manipulative TV villains I have ever seen, didn’t do anything prior to her death other than stare out a window and cry. And like, look, I’m all on board with the idea that Cersei would be in denial about her defeat, that she’d be almost deliriously overconfident until the last possible minute. But that Cersei wouldn’t have any other backup plans, even if they didn’t work, that she wouldn’t try to use the wildfire to her advantage somehow or surrender herself in a botched assassination attempt or pretty much do anything but stand around like the World’s Biggest Target, like, dudes, no. Cersei deserved better than this. Her and Daenerys both, really. As has already been mentioned on Twitter, “The Bells” is supposed to be a battle between two powerful goddamn queens, and one barely gets dialogue, while the other is reduced to a powerless, weepy mess. Fuck that shit. (If you were wondering, “The Bells” also wins for WORST EPISODE because damn, it’s been a minute since I’ve hated something so much.)

There are so many character deaths that frustrated me this season, deaths that might have worked on paper if the show had spent, you know, the next two years building to them, but I don’t know if anything disappointed me quite so much as watching Cersei stand around, crying, before almost literally getting a bridge dropped on her.

Honorable Mentions: Daenerys (Game of Thrones); Missandei (Game of Thrones); Varys (Game of Thrones); Jaime (Game of Thrones); Melisandre (Game of Thrones); Admiral Cornwell (Star Trek: Discovery)

THE ULTIMATE DOWNWARD SPIRAL CHARACTER

Daenerys – Game of Thrones

Yes, as I wrap up these TV Superlatives, it’s perhaps becoming clear to you that I was one of the many people who hated how Game of Thrones ended. I did consider characters from other shows–Cisco from The Flash was a possibility here, considering how forced I found his character exit to be–but really, despite Emilia Clarke’s impressive commitment to the material, no one’s arc got more demolished than Daenerys’ this season.

There are, I’m sure, at least a hundred pieces on the internet complaining why Dany’s “Mad Queen” turn didn’t work and a hundred more complaining that everything was foreshadowed and anyone who didn’t see it coming is a loser. I’m a little too burnt out at this point to write my own 5,000-word essay, so let me just say this: I came into Season 8 hoping Daenerys would become a villain. I wanted her to discover either Jon or Gendry’s true parentage (or both) and try to kill either (or both) characters. Actually, I was hoping she’d succeed in doing so; I definitely wanted her to murder Jon, not unlike the way he murdered her–and not because she was a Mad Queen, indiscriminately murdering hundreds of thousands of civilians under the self-deluded guise of liberation–but because she felt entitled to the throne, had spent too many years working and sacrificing and killing to be pushed out of the way for some random dude.

Over several seasons, Dany has proven to be capable of brutal acts of violence; those acts, however, have always had a pretty clear reason behind them, if not necessarily just cause. Turning her into some bad-in-the-blood Mad Queen in a mere couple of episodes, one who unnecessarily murdered everyone in King’s Landing even though she had clearly already won, just because the people didn’t love her enough and, like, cause her nephew refused to make out with her, just . . . ugh. I can’t. I can’t. I know you’re gonna come at me with Missandei, but no. Her death was totally cheap. Basically everything that happened to Daenerys this season was cheap. I do not buy any of this.

Because–as plenty of people have already said–there is a difference between foreshadow and character development. And just because I could see this coming doesn’t mean I buy how we got here.

Honorable Mentions: Jaime (Game of Thrones); Cisco (The Flash)

Okay, that’s it for today! Comment to agree! Comment to argue! Comment and give me some of your own Best Of/Worst Of recent TV moments! (Preferably marking spoilers, please!) Hopefully I’ll see you back here in a few months for some more TV superlatives.

    Fine, I will check out Doom Patrol, once I get the chance to, and find out what happened to Admiral Whiskers.

    SPOILERS for The Terror, and Season 3 of Riverdale.

    I was thinking of giving “Best Villain,” to Griffins & Gargoyles from Riverdale, the Dungeons & Dragons stand-in that was apparently based on all the fears parents had about D&D back during the Satanic Panic. As someone who plays board games regularly, this tickled me greatly. But I’m not sure if I can count a non-sentient inanimate object as a villain, even if the game IS specially designed to turn the players into drug-addicted cultists worshipping the game’s Big Bad and performing ritualistic murders and suicides.

    So instead, I’m giving Best Villain to Penelope Blossom, who turned out to be the evil D&D mastermind, and whose final evil plan involved hunting teenagers for sport (I got the impression this was reviving an ancient Blossom family tradition, but that might be wrong) while also forcing them to LARP, in fancy dress, with a bunch of expensive-looking props she must’ve had made special for this occasion, and there is nothing about this that isn’t hilarious. Also amazing – her earlier offhand reveal that she wrote love letters to Jeffrey Dahmer in her teen years, and her angrily berating her No. 2 for being “a terrible serial killer,” after he failed again to kill the main cast.

    Best Death goes to the doctor and all his victims from The Terror, which also picks up “Favourite New Show.” With the entire cast facing an extremely drawn-out death from various combinations of starvation, cold, disease, lead poisoning, and scurvy, the doctor – one of the few men made aware of just how dire their odds of survival are – snaps and decides to mercy kill the entire cast and himself via arson. The resulting setpiece was masterful and horrifying, with everyone gradually realising what was happening, then desperately crowding against the least-fiery corner of the tent structure they were trapped in, trying to escape, while one man gets trampled beneath the crowd and another gets accidentally stabbed by the guy trying to cut everyone free. And I can’t even say that he (the doctor) was particularly wrong to do it, based on what’s coming.

    Worst Episode goes to the Season 3 Wynonna Earp finale, which I think can be best summed up as “A series of mostly poorly executed ideas that never came together into an emotionally cohesive story.” Which was kinda my issue with the season as a whole, albeit to a much lesser extent, and that’s why Wynonna Earp isn’t getting “Most Painful Cancellation.” (I mean, it’s also not cancelled, exactly – but it ran into funding issues which seem unlikely to be resolved, so same difference.)

    • Fine, I will check out Doom Patrol, once I get the chance to, and find out what happened to Admiral Whiskers.

      Ha ha! My fiendish plan has worked!

      I’m afraid I had to HEAVILY skim your comment, not having watched Season 3 (or most of Season 2) of Riverdale or any of The Terror. The latter, I’m pretty sure I’ll get to. The former, I ought to try again because, obviously, I adore the ridiculous, and there isn’t much more ridiculous than Riverdale. Everything I hear about that show, I’m like “Wait, WHAT?” But the uneven quality of the show did sometimes drove me up the wall, plus, well, Archie, and it feels like a bigger time commitment than I want to give lately. Still, I’m conflicted. D&D and Satanic Panic alone makes me feel like I’m seriously missing out.

      I actually haven’t gotten to Season 3 of Wynonna Earp, either. I finished Season 2, and then almost immediately got spoiled about the major character death early on in Season 3, which bummed me out. What did you think about that? Do you think it was handled well? I would like to keep watching, especially if Season 3 really is its last season, but at this point, I think I’m going to wait until it’s on Netflix, rather than pay for it. Especially if the finale is a Worst Episode.

      • Teacups says:

        Yeah, over the last couple of seasons Riverdale has gotten so very, very weird and horror-y, it’s great. The board game cult isn’t even the only cult this season, and parts of the other cult storyline were equally fun – though nothing can consistently match the nerdy delights of eeeeevil D&D for me.

        Generally speaking, I still think Archie and Veronica’s storylines are less enjoyable than Betty & Jughead’s teen detective agency weirdness. (They’re the ones investigating both cults.) That being said, the show seems to have leaned into Archie being a well-meaning dumbass and Veronica being an inexperienced kid playing at being a very sophisticated and grown up master manipulator, which improved my experience of them a lot.

        I do recommend watching with your sister, if possible, because I think Riverdale is best enjoyed if you can joke around about it with other people who appreciate its ridiculousness.

        The Terror is a terrific watch, albeit a grim one – the entire show can be summed up as “…And then things got worse.” It’s also interesting reading about the real-world expedition this was based on and seeing just how much of the show they drew from real life.

        On Wynonna Earp: I thought the death by itself was okay – neither good nor bad. But the next episode, which dealt with the emotional fallout, had a couple of individually great scenes but was generally one of the weakest of the season. Then the rest of the season barely touched on it, which was disappointing. I read that they did it not because they wanted to, but because the actor wanted to leave so he could take other career opportunities. Which is understandable, but yeah, the death itself was a bummer.

        I might be being slightly overly harsh on the finale giving it the Worst Episode award – though it really WAS pretty bad, and I stand by my previous description of its flaws. But I’m also biased because previously, the last few episodes of Seasons 1 and 2 were where things really came together for me. They even turned elements I’d previously been unsure about (Willa’s return, Wynonna’s pregnancy that the writers were forced to shoehorn in) or outright disliked (the Earps’ tragic family backstory, Ward being secretly in cahoots with Bobo) into some of my favourite parts of the show. And during the back end of Season 3 I was thinking “Well, it’s not that this is bad, but I’m largely failing to see what this season is all about, like what the thematic or emotional arc is. And most of the stuff in the last several episodes has totally failed to hit me in the feels the way the first two seasons did. But I’ll reserve judgement until I see where this is going.”

        So I was really hoping that in the finale it would all fall into place for me. Not only was it a total disappointment on that front, it also just kinda sucked.

        • I’ll have to gauge Mek’s interest in checking out Riverdale again. Maybe the board game cult will sell it. 🙂

          Yeah, that’s disappointing about Wynonna Earp, both the lack of emotional fallout and the show’s inability to wrap the season threads together. I’ll still probably check it out when it comes to Netflix . . . well, maybe. There are so many things to watch, and I have been known to give up on shows in their final season before. Orphan Black, for instance, is still judging me.
