    You’re pretty much bang on with that. I have all but given up on every network show... but Big Bang Theory.

    When Sheldon a couple episodes stated "he wanted to touch children everywhere" and didn't comprehend what he said.....I lost it! I still enjoy the show. I almost hate Flash and Arrow now. Those are shows you throw on and make dinner, internet shop, shower, or even clean lol.
    Did you try Young Sheldon? What trash.... two episodes and done

    I don't like it either, honestly though, I didn't think it was going to work from the start. It's the complete opposite of BBT and the kind of format CBS's older audience isn't used to and doesn't embrace.

    It's a single camera sitcom with no laugh track. CBS's audience is used to a traditional 3 camera setup with a laugh track. You're asking too much of the audience there.

    The coolest thing about that show is seeing Laurie Metcalf's daughter as the mom. She really reminds me of her mother sometimes.

    So for you guys who have Hulu...I'm 6 episodes in on Future Man, and I didn't love it at first, but I'm seriously digging it now.

    Mind you, if you dislike 'dude humor' (penis jokes, references to video games, crass language, etc) you probably won't enjoy it. But if you enjoy a good penis joke now and then and you're a gaming nerd, I imagine you'd like it.

    I was going to ask you if you had watched it yet. I remember you mentioning it and I saw that it launched.

    Still Servant, you gotta tell me your preferred nick name, so I can call you something that isn't so long. Or formal? Maybe it sounds too formal! Anyway...

    I finished up Future Man tonight and overall I really really liked it. It meandered a bit in the middle, spent some time on some secondary plots that really weren't all that interesting, but there is enough really good stuff and really funny stuff, that I'm overlooking the few sort of boring parts. It's also fairly predictable, but then it's largely based on popular tropes from video games and action films so...perfectly acceptable in my opinion. There is one episode where they find themselves in James Cameron's future house and I pretty much laughed my ass off the entire time.

    And I will say this....Josh Hutcherson is farging adorable. For a guy who is short and average build, and doesn't have much of what you'd consider typical sex appeal in male celebrities, I couldn't get enough of him. He's funny, charismatic, and he fits into the role of nerdy, well intentioned underachiever perfectly. Even my husband made the comment that he expected him to be a turd like he was in the Hunger Games (it's the only other thing he's seen Hutcherson in) but that he actually really liked him in Future Man. The show also has Keith David who has been one of my favorite actors on the planet since he was Childs in The Thing and all kinds of special appearances from fairly well known comedic actors.

    But I'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for a somewhat vulgar comedy that crosses gaming with an 80s action flick.

    I just watched the trailer for Future Man on Youtube. Now I want to watch the show. But I don't have Hulu...
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    You can call me Servant, SS, Serv or just Mike. I'm friends with a bunch of the people here on Facebook, so they just call me Mike.

    You've said enough good things that I think I will enjoy this one. I'm glad Hulu made all the episodes available at once. I know the Mindy Project releases them once a week. Previously, I had to wait until they released a certain amount of episodes before I started my perennial free trial. Have you seen The Last Starfighter? I was wondering if it feels at all like that.

    Oooff. I hope he doesn't put that on his resume. I'm thinking of updating his wikipedia page with that endorsement.

    I'm surprised there isn't much talk in here about Mr Robot. That last episode was amazing.

    Spoiler:
    Despite all of Elliot's efforts stage 2 finally happened. Unlike season one where (IIRC) they waited until the last episode, we are only about 2/3 of the way through the season. Should be interesting to see what the fallout from this is.

    I've noticed they seem to be making a lot of references to time travel as well. Hence the Back to the Future cartoon. Is that what Angela believes that is the endgame here? That they can just simply undo everything that's happened including the deaths of her mom and Elliot's dad?

    I've also been reading that Price is likely her real father which would explain why he's been so creepily interested in her.

    What about Mikey? I kind of like Mikey. :-P

    It does, and they actually reference The Starfighter in the first episode. It's a goofy show and it fully embraces it which I like and appreciate.

    Oooff. I hope he doesn't put that on his resume. I'm thinking of updating his wikipedia page with that endorsement.
    If he's doing shows like this, he has to be self aware enough to know he's not super hot stuff by Hollywood standards!!!

    And even if he was, he'd be doing himself a disservice by not doing comedy. It's like after I saw Kit Harington in 7 Days in Hell...I laughed SO hard at him, and here I thought the only thing he was made for was that broody crap he does on Game of Thrones. But he was great, totally made the movie, which is saying a lot for me because I love Andy Samberg and he was great in it as well.

    It's really, really good but I can see how it's not for everyone. I've tried to get my wife to watch it before but it's just not her type of show. She's more into the dramatic or romantic type stuff.

    Sure! That works. My sister's friends from high school used to call me Mikey. It was actually part of my very first AOL email that I used up until a few years ago.

    As for Mr. Robot, I love the show. It has such a great vibe to it. The second season wasn't quite as strong as the first season. I personally loved the first season despite
    Spoiler:
    guessing the twist in the very first episode
