Joel McHale takes a look back at the week's can't miss reality TV and pop culture moments.
It was funny and so well written, and the fact that Ledger is so good just added to it's perfection. This could have been a great show, and it didn't hurt that the cast is actually quite competent. This show had a wonderfully original and well-developed concept. This show had it all, brilliant acting, wonderful cinematography and directing, great cast, exciting story lines, passion, intrigue, fighting and magic. The theme was wonderfully haunting and set the tone foe the show. The rest of the music was amazing as well. The show mixed a good amount of historical detail with myth, and plenty of swords and sorcery. It also was completely devoid of stereotypical Irish stuff. It really was a good story. I loved the explorations of Celtic myths and legends, the show included spiritual material (including Druidic and Christian beliefs that merge). I loved the action, the adventure and the fact that this was a show that made you feel something... it could make you laugh and cry (sometimes at the same time). Sadly it suffered from very little marketing support from Fox. I was very sad when the series ended so abruptly.
