    I slept through most of True Detective. The performances were really good but I found the pacing to be way too slow for my tastes. It took me four tries to actually finish the finale.

    OMG! Yes! Yes! Yes!

    The finale of Dexter was great. There. I’ve said it.

    The whole idea of the finale was great. But it was so poorly executed.

    The Goldbergs was this season’s best new comedy. Mom was second.

    All the characters on Seinfeld were intensely annoying.

    ^ I can see how someone would think that. The acting certainly isn’t subtle on the show.

    I'm not perfect, but I keep trying.

    -Modern Family is funny… and good… and Emmy-worthy.
    -Kerry Washington is not a good actress.
    -Ratings should be considered in determining Emmy-worthiness.
    -The Emmys should have two acting categories for each genre: Outstanding Lead Actor and Oustanding Supporting Actor. You may be wondering what happens to actresses, nothing b/c they don’t exist. Actors are actors, no matter their sex. Also, guest performances are supporting, and they should compete there.
    -Louis C.K.’s stand up special are hilarious, but Louie sucks.
    -Andy Samberg is the BEST thing about B99.
    -I’ve only seen one episode of Arrested, and I hated it.
    -Kiefer Sutherland needs to stop and move on.
    -I am disappointed that there is a generation called the Will & Grace generation b/c that means they were raised to be accustomed to the most flamboyant and over-the-top gay men when, in fact, the vast majority of gay men that I have met are nothing like that. In fact, characters like Jack McFarland, Mitch and Cam, and Kurt Hummel make me want to like vagina. Why can’t we idolize Max Blum or Oscar Martinez? Okay… [puts soapbox away]

    You should try Arrested Development harder. I had watched the pilot 3 times before I decided to give it another chance. And by the third episode, I was hooked.

    Orphan Black is a writing mess, I wouldn’t even know where to begin pointing out the many many mistakes of the plot, rookie mistakes.

    No, they shouldn’t. If that were the case we’d be having stuff like The Walking Dead get nominated because it’s the biggest show on television.

    Hence the thread title: Unpopular Opinions.

    Here’s my reasoning: Complaints are frequent that Emmy voters do not watch the shows they are voting for. Would it not be better for the Emmy nominees and winners to accurately reflect the feelings of the Emmy voters, who will have most likely seen the nominees if they’re higher rated, or for the awards to represent the limited viewing patterns with voting members?

    For example, Louie and Modern Family. The former is a small cable show that averages less than a million first broadcast viewers while the latter is one of the highest rated comedies on television – broadcast, to be exact. Modern Family is likely to have wider viewership across the voting body, while Louie’s is limited. Since the Emmys technically reflect the best of television according to the ATAS, and those members are more likely – by a large margin – to watch Modern Family, it makes complete sense to have ratings impact eligibility in order to ensure voting members have been exposed to the programming and can therefore make an informed vote. I don’t want voters casting ballots based on what’s hip and now. I want their true and honest votes. If they start doing the former, I’m going to break their hips, right now (stole that from Jack Black).

    “True Detective” wasn’t that great? Give McConaughey a nomination (and I would be ok with a win) but that’s it. The show doesn’t deserve a Series nom.

    -Kerry Washington is not a good actress.

    I REALLY like Kerry Washington. I think she’s a great on-screen presence, and she’s charming in real-life and I love her attitude towards the media. I’m so happy she had this breakthrough with “Scandal” last season…but I’m currently watching season 3 of the show (I’m in the second half of the season), and yes, her acting is kinda laughable.
    The show has gone totally over-the-top into soap opera territory, so the grandstanding acting makes sense, but the amount of time she spends on screen with her mouth open as a reaction to what someone has said is laugh out loud funny.
