Since this topic seemed to be going over so well on the movies forum, I thought I’d make a thread for unpopular opinions about television. I’ll start off by saying The Big Bang Theory is the best comedy on TV right now.March 18, 2014 at 10:00 pm #313142
Lost’s best season is 6.March 18, 2014 at 10:11 pm #313143
Nope. Not biting. I prefer this section of Goldderby to stay semi-sane.March 19, 2014 at 12:03 am #313144
Breaking Bad is overratedMarch 19, 2014 at 12:47 am #313145
ABC’s The Neighbors is one of the top three comedies currently on TV.March 19, 2014 at 10:45 am #313146
American Dad! is the funniest television show currently on the air.March 19, 2014 at 10:48 am #313147
Oh man, I can see this making people’s eyes bleed.March 19, 2014 at 11:48 am #313148
Andre Braugher is currently the worst thing about Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Modern Family is still one of the best comedies on television, and the only ones that are better are not on the networks.
The Americans has no chance at scoring a drama series nom.
Shameless S4 is better than at least 4 of the drama series nominees last year.
I think the comedy lineup is still pretty damn good (certainly not as bad as some people are saying).
Orphan Black is a fun show at the moment, but it’s not quite a good one. Maslany is perfect, though.
Orange Is The New Black outclasses House of Cards in every area except for flashy visuals.
Downton Abbey sucks.
The Crazy Ones is a decent show… Robin Williams, James Wolk, and Hamish Linklater are doing great work every week.
Dan Harmon coming back did not turn Community into what it used to be.
Lena Dunham is having a better season than Amy Poehler. Parks & Rec is having its worst season since the first.
Well, that felt good to say.March 19, 2014 at 12:01 pm #313149
Oh gosh, I have to add a few:
Raising Hope‘s 4th season is incredibly bad.
Even though I really like CBS’s Mom and have seen every episode, I still don’t think Anna Faris deserves an Emmy nomination.
New Girl‘s third season is really good.
Andy Samberg is an incredibly bad actor and the weak link on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Modern Family is still the best comedy on network TV and would deserve its 5th Emmy.
Edie Falco still deserves all the praise she gets for playing Nurse Jackie.
Showtime’s Web Therapy deserves an Emmy nom for Best Comedy Series, Writing and Lisa Kudrow.
Kathy Bates is highly overrated on American Horror Story.March 19, 2014 at 12:53 pm #313150
I agree with a lot already said LOL!
The Goldbergs is a funnier show than Modern Family (no matter how historical fallacies it contains during some episodes)
Parenthood is the best network drama (even beating The Good Wife) on television
This is probably not unpopular but Arrow has wayyyyyyy too many villains and it gives the viewer a headache
AHS: Coven finale was the best episode of the season
Lost was a masterpiece and they were not all dead (as the producers have stated)
Andre Braugher started out really annoying on Brooklyn Nine-Nine but he has improved a lot throughout the season
Pretty Little Liars is not a bad show
The Americans season two is worse than the first and it won’t get a nomination again this year (don’t get me wrong, I still love it)
The Walking Dead is having its strongest season
Community season five is the funniest season yet
Raising Hope‘s fourth season is not great but it’s still not too terrible
Family Guy is funny
That felt really good to let out… really good.March 19, 2014 at 1:54 pm #313151
I’d also like to add that I would rather see Modern Family win its fifth Emmy than see Girls win once.March 19, 2014 at 2:05 pm #313152
The problem with these kind of threads is that it is very easy to feel that your opinion is unpopular. Like, reading these, half of these are actually popular opinions.March 19, 2014 at 3:14 pm #313153
To an extent that’s true. But for the most part, they aren’t the popular opinions among trolls who spend all their time complaining about popular movies and TV shows on the Internet. 😉March 19, 2014 at 3:42 pm #313154
Breaking Bad… is okay.
Game of Thrones… has too much nudity for me, it’s like I’m watching medieval porn. (But I still like the show)
Scandal… is overrated.
Kerry Washington… has never had a good performance in any movie/TV show
The Simpsons… is still funny to me.
Seinfeld… is an awesome show, except for when everyone on the show is so mean.
Mad Men… is still awesome
Archer… I do not like at all.
American Idol… has great talent this year.
Nicki Minaj… was a good judge on AI last year, I felt.
Ty Burrell… is the only good thing about Modern Family.
Family Guy… my favourite character is Meg.
and to re-iterate: American Dad!… is the most underrated comedy in television history.
