TV died
TV didn't die, you're looking in the wrong place.
Shows like The Sopranos, Doctor Who, Life on Mars, Glee, The Big Bang Theory and tonnes of others are all instant classics made in the modern age. You just have to look harder. There are less brilliant shows but they're still out there.

Which version? The US version is alright, mainly because of Harvey Keitel, but the original version is better.

Glee

I've seen a few episodes of Glee (lol female housemates) and it's terrible. TERRIBLE. American Football teaming dancing to Beyonce to win a game? LOLWTFBBQ?

Yeah, I didn't appeal to me as much. I just didn't enjoy it that much.

I said its brilliance.

Seconded :D Although I do like How I Met Your Mother :)

Big Bang is a personal favourite, I also really like true blood, it's like a hardcorer version of twilight so it's better then that.

Im also an anime whore :P

My personal thoughts on the shows that are in discussion:

Two and a Half men = Got old after the first season. Same jokes over and over and i'm happy its almost over.

Big Bang: Also, same nerdy jokes over and over, got boring and is rarely funny anymore.

How i met your mother: Started off GREAT, fell a little short and then really picked up hard for season 4. The current season sucks balls though and is not worth watching anymore. (I'd like to point out that NOTHING HAPPENS anymore, which is the sad part. Before there were all these twists with relationships but now its all focused on the married couple and ted is hardly a minor character)

True Blood: (Keeping in mind that i've only seen season 1, and i've heard season 2 is better) The show was entertaining but the season ended horribly. The "big reveal" was a horrible twist and the villain was someone you hardly know throughout the series. Resulting in a "oh..its HIM? ... lame" ending. Still i will watch season 2 eventually though.

One of the main problems with the 3 sitcoms first listed is that not much really happens anymore. Its like the same characters lives doing the same things over and over. One of the things i really liked about the earlier episodes of how i met your mother were that there was the whole ted/robin relationship and then ted and stella? (was that her name..the girl from scrubs). Either way, now its just kinda bleh, nothing HAPPENS and not in a seinfeld kinda way. At least in seinfeld the "nothing" that happened was different every time.

SHOWS TO WATCH:

Weeds: Starts off alright but REALLY gets crazy in the 2nd season. Everything just keeps escalating its actually QUITE good.

Breaking Bad: Jimp reccomends this, i have them on my computer but have yet to watch

The Office and 30 Rock: Seen and love both of these shows, probably my 2 favorite of all time. Absolute hilarity ESPECIALLY the office.

Anyways, thats my TV post. I've watched like all these shows over the last year on my computer during classes at school ;)

that show got unfunnily awkward when the kid grew up and they kept writing as if he was 8, i agree though.

Shows I watch:

FOX:
simpsons (it's not as good as it was in the past and I cringe at how much product placement there is now)
family guy (i love it, still has great episodes, and some flops, but still worth watching at least)
house (it's a great show, had to stop watching after I kept thinking I had every disease they feature on that show. Coughing is a symptom of brain eating maggots? HOLY SHIT *panic*)

DISCOVERY:
mythbusters (i know it's not real science but it's god damn entertaining)

COMEDY CENTRAL:
futurama (excited for new episodes even though i know they wont be as good as the old ones)
south park (has been steadily declining in quality IMO, not enough to stop watching though, and there's occasionally a gem)
daily show (not much to say here)
colbert report (stephen colbert is hilarious)

ADULT SWIM:
(i can never figure out the schedule for adult swim shows that aren't on every night)
robot chicken (nothing like good ol immature fart humor)
venture bros (one of the few AS shows that's funny, decently animated, and has good story / characters)
metalocalypse (i find it hilarious)
ATHF is good too
superjail is very... interesting. everyone should watch it IMO if just for the animation, there's only one season.
other shows are tolerable, some I just can't stand

NBC:
the office (used to watch this more, but it just gets more and more soap opera-y as it keeps going, as funny as steve carrel is)
SNL (it's just not that funny anymore, other than andy samberg)

========

i usually just keep the tv on as background noise when I work. For some reason I find it less distracting than listening to music

Yeah that lad is camper than a row of pink tents. He's such a stereotype too; flamboyant dress sense, slight lisp, tough guy macho Dad.

The show is full of stereotypes, you've got the older sporty lesbian, the sassy fat black chick, the flamboyant gay guy, the talented jock who's a massive jerk, the talented jock who's not a jerk, the pretty ugly girl, the sweet cheerleader who's actually a slut.

I hate Glee for its stereotypes. It is a well-intentioned show but its use of stereotypes is counterproductive for its cause.

Haven't gone near Glee, simply because everyone I know that likes it is about as annoying as the people on the show according to the adverts heh, no offence to any fans here.

On the other hand, these are some fine shows:
Black Books, Scrubs, Spaced, Flight of the Conchords, Skins (only series 1, maybe 2), The IT Crowd, Peep Show, The Inbetweeners and Futurama.

Nice job, I just gave it a try and it looks pretty good :) Toss the Turtle has quenched my thirst for launch games somewhat but it's still very enjoyable.

I wish I had more time to work on my game...

Congrats!

I always felt the trouble with launching games is having the skill-based aspect and the ilinx (visceral fun) coexisting.

Shooting added a bit of strategy in when to use bullets. Maneouvering, however, only really seemed to be viable when going slowly enough - at the end of the launch. It just rarely made a massive difference and if the game were slowed down to where navigating would be necessiated, it'd also remove some of the thrill.

Not played your game but that seems like an interesting design 'problem'.

Btw, is FGL suitable for tiny tiny games?

They are some good shows.

I have to say, How I Met Your Mother feels like a completely different show this season. I remember watching it at like 2am or 3am when it was on the 2nd season :)
