Last night whilst combing through the ever expanding netflix queue, I decided to give a new show a shot. That show? Eureka, a syfy (still hate that name) series that is full of people I know from movies and other series (hello Miles Dyson) and is honestly one of the most endearing shows I’ve seen in a while. Usually a show needs a few episodes to get off its feet, two of my favorite current shows, 30 Rock and Community, both had this starting hiccup where it seems the writers don’t have the characters fully realized yet and it seems as if this world just didn’t exist before you got there, then they either stumble or hit a stride. Both of the previously mentioned shows vie for my favorite show on television titles and are highly recommended.
Perfect Couples was cancelled a while back for a Paul Reiser show that was cancelled for, well, the sanity of all Americans. It seems the episodes that were never aired when the show was being given its due, are now available on Hulu. Honestly, I wasn’t a huge fan of the show while it was out, that is no secret, but it was getting slightly better as more episodes came out. These two most recent are examples of what could have been include the “party shirt” episode, which is funny and I think well written for a sitcom.
The sad thing is, I think this show actually makes a decent summer replacement show and I could see it doing well in this kind of position, but alas it’s bell has tolled and we will not be hearing much more from these dysfunctional couples. Send ’em out with a band and catch the last few episodes on Hulu.
Also, one mystery that has bothered Scott and I since the beginning….They are in Portland.
