Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split. - Robert E. Howard
I saw commercials for Galavant, a 4-part series on ABC starting last night. It seemed to consider itself a silly romp through a medieval world, in a fairy tale way (with the twist being that it's a musical), and being on at 8pm, to be somewhat "family friendly" in style. Not at all. Silly, yes. But they actually bleeped out certain words and pixelated the characters' mouths when said (although, contextually one could easily figure out what was said), came out and directly said other things or just vaguely "hid" them. I can imagine a family sitting down to watch, with some uncomfortable questions from the kiddos of "dad, what does that mean?" or "mom, why did he say that?" I'll give it next week to see if I catch the remaining shows. (p.s. another annoying facet: many of the ABC promos and commercials were also sung to the tune of one of the songs in it. Ugh.)
I'm surprised there's a thread for this topic. If I had to pick one show I wouldn't normally discuss, it would have to be Ancient Aliens. It's the guiltiest of my guilty pleasure shows. I think I watch it because it reminds me of In Search Of... which I used to watch with my grandmother when I was a child. The show is definitely fun, though often very silly and far-fetched.
I used to watch Ancient Aliens, thinking it was a cool show about unusual topics, with a bunch of loonies tossed in coming to ridiculous conclusions. Then I did some more research and learned an awful lot of the "unusual topics" were presently falsely and often plain old BS. And the ridiculousness of Giorgio A. Tsoukalous wears thin, too, so there was little reason left to watch it.
That's my jacket!
Since it sounds like no one else here was watching Galavant, I feel that I can spoilerize the "final" 4th episode: there will be a second season, so the "cliffhangers" remain hanging. Or cliffing.
I was watching it, just had to wait until my sister visited as we watch it together. Anyway, that last episode (the 8th) was unacceptable, they had to assume there was a good chance there wouldn't be a season 2 - which there almost certainly won't, judging by the ratings - and yet they still went ahead with an entirely anti-climactic ending that left the story not just on a cliffhanger but without significant resolution to anything. It sours the whole series for me, and that's too bad.
Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.
Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.
The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
Do so many people watch streaming, that they saw this as an 8-part "series," instead of the four 1-hour shows it appeared as on TV? It was always weird how the 30-minute mark had a "pause" that transitioned immediately into the rest of the show.
