Pop Culture Tuesdays
Sometimes TV gives us greatness and sometimes the rest of the viewing public doesn't catch on to the awesomeness of the show. Sometimes the show has it run and it ends and then it's completely forgotten.
Here are my favorites:
A dumb superhero named the Tick tries to protect The City with his sidekick Arthur the moth-- not a bunny with wings. In the second season he get a dog named Speak, because the speaks to the Tick. It's one of the funniest shows I've ever seen.
A show about a war between races, smart, edgy characters died, sciencey and techy and all in all awesome. The show was complex and wonderfully written. And totally forgotten.
Lots of yelling, smart in the way it shows humanity's stupid. Zim is the dumbest of all the invaders.
The West Wing.
What if Politics was cool, important and the president did the right thing all the time. Yes in the late 90's early 2000's this show was smart. Seriously I learned something in every episode. The first two seasons where perfect from beginning to end and when Donna Moss finds out Josh Lyman was shut, I wept. Seriously 10 years later and it can still bring a tear to my eye. Josh Lyman and Donna Moss were one of the best ships out there.
Dead like Me.
What if you died but you got to live a little longer as a reaper? yeah Awesome. It was a heart felt show that dealt with serious matters with the perfect blend of dark humor. It was so good years after it was canceled they made a movie out of it to continue the show.
Maybe not forgotten but maybe overlooked as how important the show really was. Without X-files there would be no Buffy, also most NONE of the shows on Syfy network, and no Lost.
Although the last three seasons became completely unwatchable.
So there's like thousands of other shows I could talk about and maybe I will when I start to run out of ideas to blog about.
