what's the verdict on marry me? was hoping for the next happy endings but i'm not convinced after the first two eps

also not sure if they're intentionally trying to make it hard to like the two leads

Yeah, the writing's been pretty weak so far. 3 episodes in and I'm losing interest.

Marry Me's characters are a bit unlikeable alright but it does have the hundred joke a minute stuff HE had. Took a while for the HE characters to become likeable too so I'm gonna give it more time. Not sure the cast is as strong though.

Just thinking back to this time last year when Breaking Bad was ending.

What a show. There will never be another like it

The Shield is better, but Justified is easier to watch

They are both brilliant though. Win/win situation!

Found Justified a bit of a slog to begin with, much preferred The Shield, and I think it turns out to be by the far better show by the last 3 seasons.

I wasnt a big far of Season 1 of Justified but when it stops the 1 week storylines it got much better.

It's a masterpiece, he has a very developed and complex relationship with hunks.

First one I watched was the bit with him talking to his "brother". I was pretty confused.

Oh god no.

If you like purposefully shoddy production, a presenter that likely has brain damage and a weird spreech impediment, then you're set.

Some people are just going to think it's stupid, and they wouldn't be wrong, but they'd be missing out

I watched the first season of Tim and Eric and thought it was fairly shite.
