Watched a few episodes of Galavant yesterday. Decently amusing, and the Jousting bit was hilarious (its nice to see a Training Montage backfire once in a while). Overall, I'd give it a B-. Good but not great. We won't destroy their planet, but neither will they get our secret formula for immortality.

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Wrapped up Burn Notice last night. Watched the last 4 episodes in a row. I held off mentioning the series before now, because I figured most would scoff at the ridiculousness of the show in itself. To a degree, I agree: It's mostly mindless fun. Although IMO, not quite as silly and mindless as some other shows, like CSI, or the aforementioned (in this thread) Walker.
Either way, it's not the potential reality of Burn Notice's situations/episodes that kept me watching. It's the characters. To me, they are likeable, and I actually cared about what happened to them.
I won't go into too much detail, but I will say I enjoyed the series overall, and am happy to have spent time with Mike Weston and crew. The show started off a bit rocky, but picked up speed with interesting plots early on. There seemed to be a bit of a repetitive lull about halfway through the series, but the characters were interesting and likeable enough that I stuck with it. Good thing I did, as things really pick up w/in the last few seasons. I'd say those last seasons are easily the best in the whole series.
When the show finally ends, you kind of realize something:

Quote
Several decent people die over the course of the series. Including some of Mike's past friends, and the 2 remaining members of his immediate family. Ultimately and basically, just so Mike can get his real second chance at life. Granted, this wasn't how Mike wanted it, but it still kinda seems unfair... If it wasn't for him, those "decent people" would all be alive. Granted, if it also wasn't for him, many bad people would still be doing their thing. That's just how it is...

I'm finally finishing Breaking Bad. 7 eps into season 5. I'm entirely sick of Walter and his shit. He deserves to die, whether by cancer or by bullet. His clueless stupidity has gotten redundant. The show is good, and great at ratcheting up the intensity, but definitely overrated. I'll try and blow through the last 6 eps quickly to get it done.

Glad I'm not the only who felt this way.  This was compounded by how many of my friends were screaming at me about how it was the greatest show in the multiverse.

I'm not as adverse to BB as you fellows seem to be, but I will admit I was getting a bit bored with the whole thing by the last season. However IMO, the last few episodes are pretty darn good. Definitely worth finishing.
