FTW vs. WTF: The TV Week in Review (August 25)

Oh gosh, this is the last week of August, guys! Could it actually be time to get serious? September is looming, which means summer is almost over, and that means we have to buy new Trapper Keepers and erasers and pencil boxes! Not for school, no no no, but for our honors course on the new fall season, where homework is making .GIFs of The Vampire Diaries, recess means catching up on whatever's on our DVRs, and final exams are finale exams and they happen in late May. But first we have some pass/fail report cards to fill out as we look at the best and worst of the week in television.




New Girl's turn on The Writers' Room

Sundance Channel and Entertainment Weekly's regular writers' powwow continues to delight, and this week's New Girl panel—featuring creator Liz Meriwether, Nick Miller himself (Jake Johnson), and executive producers Brett Baer and Dave Finkel—was truly entertaining. Naturally the full episode's not online, but if you can track it down via On Demand or more, uh, nefarious means, it's at least worth a look for the improvised story-breaking of an episode called "Mouth Party," which we now totally want to see. Oh, and if you weren't a fan of the period humor in Season 2's "Menzies," check out this (unembeddable) clip; sounds like it could've been wayyyyy worse. 



Teen Wolf nails another finale


Serialized dramas live or die by their finales. Teen Wolf's have been excellent since the beginning, and the Season 3A capper didn't disappoint. Neatly tying together one of the show's most elaborate and ambitious plots to date (a sort of supernatural Mexican standoff between three different factions), it also took the time to delve into artful philosophical concepts, and to provide some truly rich emotional payoffs. Feeling very much like a season-ending conclusion rather than mid-season cliffhanger, this finale respected our need for closure and made us even more excited to see what the next batch of episodes will bring us. New monsters, new heartache, even more labyrinthine storytelling— bring it on.



Michael Westen stabs Garret Dillahunt to death

Well, actually it was "Simon Escher," the crazy man who was instrumental in framing Westen so many Burns ago. The heart-piercing followed Mikey's realization that the CIA doesn't care what sort of psychopaths they have to consort with in order to get the job done. Then, as if that wasn't enough to put him on bad terms with the government organization, he went on to admit to Brotherman James the real reason he's been hanging around. For a show that relies pretty heavy on a procedural episode structure, these last installments are actually keeping us guessing, which is a good place to be.



The Bridge's dubstep bath salts guy!

FX's bordertown police drama isn't shy. Proof? Look at this weirdo hammering out some beats and freaking in the buff with a sock on his dong. Just one of many odd little details this kooky show delivers on a weekly basis.



True Blood's Eric Northman showed us his wiener

The Season 6 finale was like two episodes in one, and while we're a little on the fence about the mid-episode six-month time jump and Sam Merlotte becoming the freaking mayor of Bon Temps, Alexander Skarsgard went full-frontal. That goes a long way. 



The Soup celebrates 500 episodes... live!


Joel McHale's weekly clip show marked a major milestone with a pair of live episodes that were mostly like any other episode of the series, but with a little extra pizazz. BJ Novak, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Adam Corolla all dropped by, and the show scored its largest audience of the year. So meaty!!



Breaking Belize!

Breaking Bad coined a new euphemism for murder, "Send him on a trip to Belize," and the Belize Tourism Board had a field day, even offering several cast members free trips to the country. And then one Reddit user whipped up that beautiful postcard you see above.






TLC's The Man with the 132-lb Scrotum


But what is this show even about and who is the main character?



Maxine just *appeared* on Under the Dome, and she's mixing her metaphors

We're not sure why Natalie Zea decided to squat in some poor schmoe's house for eight episodes while two of her employees ran around like chickens with their heads cut off, but we do know she's terrible at crafting a properly threatening and consistent metaphor: 

Maxine: “You have quite a few secrets buried in your past, Barbie. I would hate for those secrets to get dug up for everyone to see.”

Barbie: “Oh, please, please, dig them up.”

Maxine: “Careful what you wish for, Jimmy, because while I’m digging, I might accidentally reveal a few of the pies you got your fingers stuck in around town.”

She couldn't've just stuck with the buried secrets? Suddenly there are baked goods involved?! Maybe the pies are buried? Pirate Pastries! Or maybe another one of her operations—aside from collecting gambling debts, selling drugs, and setting up fight clubs—is an All-In-One Hole-Digging and Dessert Shop? Come to think of it, that might actually do well in Chester's Mill...



A&E's Modern Dads

It's great that men can be at the forefront of a reality show, and that A&E's making an effort to portray a group of "characters" who aren't constantly fighting, drinking, or f*cking, but this show about four stay-at-home dads is a horrible watch. In addition to being mostly staged, the show dismisses its stars' wives as props, and the guys themselves ham it up in front of the cameras with the type of personalities that prove they shouldn't ever breed again.



The recent comparisons between Breaking Bad and Lost

Yes, Breaking Bad had numbers and it put them on a lottery ticket. Okay, Lost had numbers and it put them on a lottery ticket, too. Yes, there was an underground meth lab on Breaking Bad, and yes, there was an underground hatch on Lost. Yes, "Walt" and flashforwards. But please, stop trying to make connections where they don't belong. Let Breaking Bad be Breaking Bad, and let Lost be Lost. Are we supposed to compare ABC's upcoming lottery drama Lucky 7 to Lost, too? (.GIF from ibtimes.com)



R.I.P. Elmore Leonard

One of America's greatest contemporary authors passed away this week, and he'll be greatly missed. In addition to a rich portfolio of novels and short stories, Leonard wrote the ditty that Justified is based on and consulted on the show frequently. He also penned the source material for several influential movies, including Get Shorty, Out of Sight, and Jackie Brown.

Teen Wolf mid-season was a bit disappointing - it wasn't as good and exciting as the 3 previous episodes. And background music was irritating and too pompous. But hey, at least they killed off the character that deserved to die! :D

Price writes very entertaining reviews but loses his critical edge whenever it comes to teen wolf. That finale wasn't brilliant. It started off very well indeed with the "limbo" dimension and flashbacks to the pilot but then towards the end it undid all the great work done by the season.

We spent all season wondering what Deucalion's great plan was ("he is always 20 steps ahead"), my 5 year old nephew could have come up with a better plan than what we saw. Let's not forget the fact that they saved Deucalion's life on a promise he gave. Wow, I don't mind letting him go but rough him up a bit at least. Plus, how is Scott turning into an alpha suddenly make him stronger than Deucalion? Deucalion must have known about true alphas and I am sure Scott just becoming one means is the one and only time he could be defeated before he knew what he was capable of. It was just a terrible last 10-15 minutes and Teen Wolf continues to disappoint in finales after excelling all season.

As a season finale I'd agree it wasn't great (although there were parts that were excellent). For a mid season finale though it was still more FTW than WTF (particularly compared to most mid season finales).

If this really is the end of this particular story arc, then they do need to stop with the notion of the villains (and Scott) having these great "plans". That was fine for season 2, but they need to do a lot more work on plotting throughout the season to make it work, which they are are incapable or not interested in doing. I really like the show but a well thought out, complex plot, which hangs together is not their strong suit.

For instance, dad anyone bothered to bring a gun (or even a good knife) the whole fight would have easily been over. The Darach could have shot the DM during the eclipse while he was just a regular human (or cut off his head) and everyone else could have shot her in the ash circle or thrown a knife in her eye (we know from previous episodes it doesn't stop physical objects). Everyone's plans were basically terrible so the show either needs to move away from the model of revealing the "big plan" or actually invest some time in coming up with plans that actually make sense and hang together logically in the modern world where claws are nice but people can go out and buy assault rifles.

By comparison there was a Buffy episode where she had to fight this incredibly powerful demon who slaughtered entire armies in the 14th century. She brought a bazooka and BLAM - that was that. Being incredibly powerful in the 14th century against arrows and swords is one thing, but it is lame for shows to pretend we aren't in the 21st century with guns and grenades and all kinds of weapons that make the kind of one-on-one combat in this episode obsolete.

The only counter argument I can see is that maybe (although I would not put money on this) the writers are going to show in the second half of the season that Deucallion actually does have a plan for Scott and this was all part of it. If he just wanted to kill Scott he presumably could have done that any time before Scott achieved true alpha status. But what if his plan depends on creating a situation in which Scott is forced to embrace being a true alpha (sooner rather than later) and using that to his advantage later? If that was the goal then he manipulated the Darach, Derek and Scott to get what he wanted. So if he really does think 20 steps ahead then maybe we are only seeing step 8 at this point (which looks pretty shoddy but that's because it is step 8 not step 20). Maybe it will be amazing. Maybe.

I'm prepared to give them the benefit of the doubt and hope that 3(b) brings it all together.

Also TW deserves a FTW for a great half season overall (not just (or even especially) the mid season finale).

They do seem to have trouble wrapping things up, but I'd rather see the big risks they take not work out than not take them at all.

I agree about Deucalion--if they'd tinkered with that "ending" just a little bit, it would have been a spectacular finale. But somehow, because Scott became an alpha, Deucalion was suddenly no longer a threat? Huh?

I'm crossing my fingers that perhaps this will get explained come January?
Reply

Thanks for the reply guys. Just want to clarify something - I was under the impression that this being the mid-season finale was also the end of an arc. This means that when they come back in Jan they are almost starting another season of sorts.

If that is the circumstances, then even if Deucalion continues to be the big bad, his return will be like a comic book villain return. Regardless of how many times Superman defeats Lex Luthor, Luthor comes back with a new plot but each plot is a story arc in itself. This means that if Deucalion comes back, I am almost expecting him to start planning over having failed in his first attempt. Based on that assumption alone, I stated earlier that this was a disappointing episode of Teen Wolf because the last 10 minutes was atrocious.

If I am wrong and they are starting where they left off in Jan, then this episode was only slightly disappointing and curses on the team for making us wait that long *waves fist at them*.

Agree. If this is a complete arc then everyone's plans were really quite terrible. If this is just a step in Deucalion's master plan (and maybe Scott's) then maybe it is too soon to judge and it will all come together in a really impressive way later (which is what I really hope for).

I think the "problem" is that we don't know what Deucalion ultimately wants because we've never heard it from his mouth. Scott and Deaton were convinced that Deucalion wanted Scott in his pack or perhaps to be manipulated into not becoming a true alpha (for whatever reason), but of course we don't know for sure. We also don't know why having his eyes healed would have somehow thwarted his plans, either. If they do, in fact, address these two things, then fine--no problem. But if they don't, then they've definitely let that important plot thread dangle weakly.

Lotta man-meat in this week's FTW. And then a lotta man's meat in WTF too, that's not my idea of balance, ladies!

Loving that headline on The Soup screencap.

Surprise at negative comments towards "Modern Dads" approaches absolute zero. A&E should have just hired Kevin James and Adam Sandler to star in it, based on the trailers.

FTW to Futurama for Murder on the Planet Express, a nonsensical episode that ended in a hilariously tragic murder.

FTWTF to Suits for taking us back to a time where apparently not much actually mattered since we knew most of this, but at least 2 characters porked.

WTF to Royal Pains for having Hank in so much hot water so fast, despite the fault being entirely on the patient - ugh to teen girls, amirite?

(Heh, I just knew you'd mention this one.) You're damn right Futurama gets a(n?) FTW. That episode did something a Futurama episode hasn't done in a long time: Made me laugh out loud, and on multiple occasions. The surprise devourings, that murderous disintegration scene and the exchange of suspiciously shifty eyes at the end were all truly funny moments. It had great visuals, great pacing and energy, and solid cartoon comedy.

I put this one right up among my favorite episodes, from the Fox years or otherwise. And this comes on the heels of last week's strong episode, albeit for different reasons.

I've been *really* critical of the lackluster, comedy-free writing on sooooo many of the ComCen episodes of Futurama. (My brother, another long-time fan of the show, actually gave it up altogether due to the weak writing of the CC era.) It almost makes me mad that the show has waited to turn in some of its best efforts only now that end is (very) nigh. I hope the last two to air are of an equally high caliber.

Breaking Bad deserves to be on this week, but NOT IN THE WTF CATEGORY!

FTW: Breaking Bad. Just everything about this is tense, from Hank being relentless, Skylar facing hard, hard times, and Walt trying to look after his family. Well, that's kind of what it was in a nutshell. Let's not forget the wild card in all of this: Jesse Pinkman.

WTF: True Blood. Finale was not a good episode, and just a complete rush job.

FTW: True Blood. Even though it wasn't good, it looks like it was set up to go back to it's simpler roots next season. We may have to deal with Hep-V vampires, but at least no more Lilith, Warlow, or the wolves.

WTF: Dexter. Had a decent ending, but this show is already out of steam. The Hannah story is already a repeat of what we saw last season, and Deb has been off her game. Hell, they've all been off their game. I'll watch till the end, but thank god it's coming to an end.

Breaking Bad definitely needs to be in the FTW category for more then just a stupid Belize postcard.

I think the WTF section was more of a deserved slam to Lost fans who are trying to find a correlation between Breaking Bad and Lost. Don't get me wrong, I liked the first few season of Lost but the series finale left a bitter taste in my mouth and basically ruined Lost for me. I find NO correlation between Lost and Breaking Bad (no commonality)

Breaking Bad--every episode--has been FTW for me.
Jesse better not turn rat! He needs to deal with everything like a adult gangster which is what he was/is. At least he doesn't seem like a whiny emo brat...I prefer angry Jesse over mopey Jesse. Jesse did a lot of bad stuff and regardless of his reasons and feelings about it he is not innocent (regardless of manipulation and other factors).

Walter is brilliant and I can't help but admire the character's intellect and skills at manipulation and deception. Yes, he is a "bad" guy but I'm one of the few still rooting for a happy ending for the character Walter White. I predict a Scarface like ending but I hope the writers continue to surprise us and not give us the expected ending of the bad being punished.

I actually really like the addition of Maxine and I think Natalie Zea adds a great energy to the show but I agree her "oh I just came into town for a day trip then decided to hide in a strangers house for 8 days doing nothing" was pretty tough to buy. She better have actually been doing something shady as F or I call lazy writing.

Reply

That was one of many things I found really annoying, but there was almost nothing that I liked about the finale. It was a bad ending to a bad season. Price has become completely blind to the show's flaws. The writing isn't better than on Dexter for example.

Derek and Scott acted like they were letting Decualion go, but there's no reason to think that they would have been able to do anything else. So the *statement* about letting him go was as bizarre as the fact that they *wanted* to let him go.

It really irritates me that the twins are still on the show. I've been expecting them to survive since I saw them in the group photo from Comic-Con, but I was hoping that I was wrong. They are bad characters and bad actors. But the most annoying aspect of having them around is that Scott and all of his friends are perfectly OK with it. These people kidnapped Isaac and are responsible for the deaths of Boyd, Erica and the woman who helped Isaac in the first episode. They have attacked Scott and his people, and at least seemed to try to kill them several times before. They have indicated that they were willing to kill anyone to help Deucalion with his plan, including Danny and (for a while) Lydia. The fact that one of them decided that Lydia is to cute to kill doesn't redeem the characters in any way.

What was Deucalion's plan anyway? To get Scott to join the pack? To get Derek to join? I'm still confused. No matter what the goal was, it had to be the stupidest plan on TV since the FBI on The Following told everyone in town that they could come to the evacuation center if they didn't feel safe at home. Hm, maybe Deaton's plan was stupider, I don't know. My point is that the twins knew that the goal that they were willing to kill for wasn't even that important. It was just one of Deucalion's whims. Someone who's willing to kill for a whim doesn't deserve to live, and anyone with half a brain shouldn't be willing to date such a person. They should also be very concerned if one of their friends is dating one of them.

So they should be doing everything they can to pull Danny away from his twin, and Lydia should doing everything she can to not let that guy who she *knows* is a fucking psycho anywhere near her. That fact that she keeps having naked wrestling matches with him is making Lydia so much worse of a character. Similar comments apply to the other members of the group as well. They should be freaking out, but they're not even talking about it!

To have every member of a group of people who are supposed to be the show's main protagonists and all-around good guys behave in such an absurdly irrational way is *terrible* writing. Deucalion's plan was bad writing. Deaton's plan was bad writing. There's a *lot* of bad to terrible writing on this show, and the fans don't even seem to notice!

Some advice for the writers:

* Plans need to make sense. There should always be a reason to think that the plan will work.

* People need to behave in ways that resemble the way that real people would behave if they found themselves in the extraordinary situations we see on the show.

* You need to make Derek more of a character. Seriously, if I had to describe him right now, all I would be able to say is that he has dark hair, has some facial hair and is really good looking. Remember how Spike was transformed from a boring monster to an awesome character? The first step was just to have him depressed about losing his girlfriend, make a few funny comments, and then drive off in a shit car singing along to The Sex Pistols. Remember uncle Iroh on Avatar: The last airbender? He really liked tea. That fact alone turned him into much more of a character than he would have been otherwise. See how simple it can be?

* You need to make the fights look better. Much better. The fights in this season are some of the worst on TV since the original Star Trek. It's all posing and growling, and then some flipping and maybe some running, most of it in slow motion. There isn't even much fighting going on. You couldn't have made those scenes worse if you had tried.

* Lose the twins.

I agree with respect to plot and character behaviour, but disagree on the overall quality of the season and mid season finale.

The show has gotten by to some extent by being a lot better than people would have expected and by having very short seasons (by comparison to most shows we are actually only a couple months into season 2 at this point). So essentially they had a great "first" season and now they need to transition into a long term sustainable model.

For the first two seasons (which are really just one regular season) you could excuse the characters doing dumb things because they were still just learning the basics themselves. I actually thought a lot of the early character interaction and development was good and made sense in the context of a bunch of teenagers dealing with an extraordinary situation that none of them really understood. And some things they did really well. For instance, a lot of shows would have spent 4-6 (maybe 6-8) episodes just getting to the point of Scott realizing he is a werewolf and convincing Stiles.

However, going forward the show doesn't have that luxury (or excuse) any more. At this point they really need to do the hard work and not just rest of the goodwill they got out of the first 24 episodes. Doing the hard work means coming up with plots and character development that are internally consistent and don't rely on random chance or the characters ignoring huge issues in order to keep things moving.

That being said, we're in the equivalent of the first couple months of the second season (if this had started with a normal season order instead of two short seasons) and I found a lot of what they did this season at least solid and sometimes great. Letting the parents know is pretty unique compared to most shows and is a lot more realistic than everyone being oblivious. Beacon Hills being a "beacon" again because of the tree is actually a great plot device and opens up the possibilities going forward (very Buffy Hellmouth). The "darkness" in the hears of the 3 main characters also has a lot of potential. Scaling back on the Scott / Alison romance was a very good decision and makes that relationship a lot more interesting and sustainable. Derek's failure as an alpha is not something a lot of shows would have had the courage to go with. The continued layering of Scott and Stiles relationship was almost perfect (the motel scene was one of the better dramatic scenes I've seen on any show last year).

So I agree that there is real work that needs to be done, but I thought it was a good half season and a mostly good mid season finale.

See my comments on an earlier post re: the DM's plans (if this is the end of that arc then I agree with you; if we are at step 8 of his 20 step plan then maybe it will all make sense in due course). I don't have a view on the twins but agree they should have done a better job of integrating them - rather than - they are attractive so it's ok that they'v killed (or tried to kill) people.

Sure, but that doesn't mean it wasn't incredibly stupid. I'm not saying he should have killed him (that would have been COMPLETELY out of character), but to just let him leave? Uh, isn't he still an alpha? And wasn't his reason for coming to town to get Scott in his pack? How does the death of the darach and getting his sight back change that at all?

It was just incredibly stupid on the characters' parts.

I agree. The episode was really good up until the last 10 minutes. They really wanted to set up this epic battle but also wanted to keep their bad guys around for the second half of the season and it just wasn't going to work. The resolution felt really lazy and forced.

I didn't mind how Jennifer died (in fact, having Peter kill her was kind of perfect), but them just letting Deucalion walk away was so weird. They didn't need to kill him, but just saying, "Oh look, you're not blind any more and most of your pack is dead, see ya later please go away" didn't make any sense.

I have to disagree. That was one of their better finales. I wasn't crazy about the idea to make half the episode a flash forward but overall, the drama was really good and it set up what looks like a promising season 7. I know a lot of the people mad are mad because they set up a Bill/Sookie/Alcide love triangle and are moving away from Sookie/Eric but there is more to this show than that sappy soap opera.

Burn Notice only has a few episodes left so they're trying to wrap up as much story as possible, but they can also do whatever they want. However, I have a feeling it could end with Michael's death since there's no way at this point he could ever return to a happy normal life.

I agree that there's no way he could return to normal life, or even the abnormal life he had in the previous seasons. But I don't think he will die. If James and Sonya are killed in a drone strike or something, he could slip away and let everyone think he died. Another possibility is that he simply joins James's group on the condition that they start doing things his way from now on. Maybe James has to die for that to happen, I don't know. If he becomes the leader of the group, or one of the leaders at least, then he could perhaps bring Fiona. I think they've been preparing to reunite the two. Fi's boyfriend dumped her, and Mike isn't going to get inside Sonya anytime soon after what he did.
