Weekend Binge Guide: February 2015

Have the weekend free? Going out is overrated! Binge-watch one of these shows instead:   If you want to laugh ( very occasionally ):   Breaking Bad See all reviews for Breaking Bad If you've somehow managed to not watch Breaking Bad yet, it’s about time you get to it. Its spin-off, Better Call Saul , has just come out, so you should probably catch up. With a trademark sense of humor, great cinematography, and a good storyline, Breaking Bad will both intrigue and amaze. Also, it’s about a high school chemistry professor-turned-drug lord; I mean, how cool is that?       If you want to cry:   Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel See all reviews for Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel This is a necessary two-parter, people. Both series, created by Joss Whedon (yeah, that guy in charge of the Marvel universe now), follow groups of people fighting monsters and the forces of evil trying to end the world. Even I (a Tin Man of a TV viewer) buckled down crying at more than one point in these shows. Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel are unique fantasy series that will find a warm place in your un-staked heart.       If you want to scream:   Game of Thrones See all reviews for  Game of Thrones This series has a lot of well-deserved hype. Introducing viewers to the fantastical realm world of Westeros, this series follows several people in their quest for power. Entertaining, well-written, and well-performed, George R.R. Martin’s come to life in a very beautiful way. It has dragons, magic, ice zombies, gore, more gore… okay, it has a LOT of gore. There is just so much that is good about this show!        If you want to think:   Six Feet Under See all reviews for  Six Feet Under Brought to TV by Alan Ball (writer of American Beauty ), Six Feet Under analyzes, in darkly humorous fashion, death and how people react to it. It takes a look at a dysfunctional family who runs a funeral home. There aren’t many shows that can get you to laugh, cry, and think, but Six Feet Under does just that. Featuring a beautiful script and powerful acting, this HBO series should be a proud addition to your binge-list.

SideReel Picks the Worst TV Robots of All Time

I'm a big fan of science fiction (my poor family can attest to the truth of this statement) and was one of the few who watched Fringe all the way to its bitter, fairly nonsensical end. But I have faith in the genre and in the abilities of J.J. Abrams — a sci-fi fan's sci-fi fan, if there ever was — so I was pretty excited to check out Almost Human . Sure, it's a pastiche of every robotic police movie/show ever, but it's fun, and it's got great visuals (which, OK, are heavily borrowed from the brilliant film  Blade Runner ). So in honor of Almost Human's (so far) great* robot cop, Dorian, here's a list of the worst robots ever to grace your living room. * As of this writing, two episodes have aired. It's very possible the show will suck. I'm not blessed with the power of foresight. I don't even know what I'm having for dinner tonight.   Challenge of the GoBots:  GoBots Any TV show that exists solely to sell merchandise is an irritant in my book, but GoBots , the sad bastard step-sibling of Transformers , is an especially egregious example. The GoBots aren't even half as cool as Transformers! And no one's made a GoBots movie, have they? Let alone the 108 movies that Transformers seems to have made. And if there were a GoBots movie, it would probably star Emile Hirsch, the poor man's Shia Laboeuf.     Small Wonder:  Vicki Robot engineer Ted Lawson creates a creepy-ass child robot whose name (Vicki) stems from her model ID ( V oice I nput C hild I denticant). Normal so far, I guess? Except that Ted tries to pass her off as human and sends her to school, where apparently no one ever seems to realize she TALKS LIKE A ROBOT and always looks exactly the same (at least until the actress herself started to age). Ugh, I bet she was a curve buster, too. Thanks for ruining the college hopes and dreams of your classmates, Vicki.   Buffy the Vampire Slayer:  Buffybot Buffybot was designed as a sexbot for Spike and was so convincing, she managed to convince real Buffy's friends that Buffy was depressed and acting out (something I hope a sexbot designed after me would do as well). Later she's used to better ends, but in a show that routinely pushed the boundaries of the suspension of disbelief, this was just a microchip too far.     Star Trek: The Next Generation:  Lore What was the point of Lore? He's basically just evil Data, and it's unclear why their creator Dr. Soong would have designed him in the first place. How is it possible that the final step before "perfect android" is "evil android"? And why didn't he dress better? Or wear a mustache? Why couldn't he be an evil genius as opposed to just a weird, petty android? Hate on Wesley all you want, but he was way more interesting than Lore.     Friends:  C.H.E.E.S.E. We get it: Joey is a bad actor and ends up in terrible projects! The backronymned C.H.E.E.S.E. ( C omputerized H umanoid E lectronically E nhanced S ecret E nforcer) is supposed to be the exemplar of a terrible network show that might cast Joey, but come on! At the time this episode aired (2000), no network would put this on TV. The time of Small Wonder was long past, and the concept of C.H.E.E.S.E. is just a meta-insult to the intelligence of Friends fans.   Futurama:  Flexo I appreciate that Futurama was willing to turn sci-fi convention on its head and say that a doppelgänger with a goatee whom everyone declares to be "evil" might actually be the good one of the two, but he's just so boring. I know, I know, that's the point, but he kept popping back up and being his same boring self, never getting frustrated, always there with a pat on the back or heartily chuckling at a joke — but there's a reason we love real Bender (aka the real evil Bender) and that's that he's insane, awful, and hilarious. "Evil" Bender never stood a chance.   Battlestar Galactica:  The Cylons The frustrating thing about the Cylons was that early in the series they really were terrifying. They were indistinguishable from us except for the fact that they were better in almost every way — AND nearly succeeded in destroying all of humanity. And then after a few seasons they were… vaguely mean kind of? Except for the ones who were good? Maybe we were supposed to root for them? Maybe they held the key to everything? Who knows! In trying to be all things to the series, they became nothing worth watching, and that was truly a shame.   Family Matters:  Urkelbot Let the GIF at the left do the explaining.                   Leah E.

Alyson Hannigan: Lesbian Relationship on Buffy Was "Such a Gift”

Buffy fans will remember a groundbreaking lesbian relationship on the show: Alyson Hannigan’s character Willow’s relationship with Tara. In an interview with HuffPost Live, Alyson remembers being part of television history very excitedly. When asked whether it caught her off guard to get that script, Alyson responds, “Not at all!” She reveals that writer-director Joss Whedon let her know in advance: “You’re going to have a friend and it’ll be a special friend that’s just your friend.” She... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/e9UZAfTjHaE/2013-05-13-alyson-hannigan-lesbian-relationship-buffy
