God, for a show that started off show good, it's so bad now. There just too many fucking characters. And they come and go and aren't seen for weeks and weeks and then reintroduced and it takes forever to try and remember who the hell they were! I love complex TV shows. And the scenes tend to drag on. It is beautifully shot.
Sorry, just had to vent.
*so not show...
OP, those are the classic early warning signs of Alzheimers. You need to be tested. In the meantime, only use the microwave.
There were some boring episodes early in this season that made me reconsider following it, but then it seemed to get better again. Some episodes are definitely landing with a thud these days though. The critics have started complaining about the slow pacing, it'd be nice if they cared what they're saying and would try to do better. Revenge listened to the feedback they got from the fans about season 2, and everything changed. People got fired, unpopular characters killed off, and the season 2 cliffhanger storyline was completely abandoned. That show intends to please, at any cost.
I'm 34, r2, but that made me crack the fuck up.
The first 2 season were very good. At best the 3rd season was just fair. The 4th season is just dragging. I keep watching hoping it will pick up and have some cohesive narrative to the story, but so far its not happening. The show seems to have lost direction after the killed off Jimmy Darmody at the end of season 2.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
