FTW vs. WTF: The TV Week in Review (May 12)

The first couple weeks of May mark the start of open season for TV networks, and some of your favorite shows have undoubtedly been killed. The loss of a TV show can be overwhelmingly traumatic, and if you find yourself experiencing thoughts of depression, we're here to help. The TV.com Support Society is an open forum for everyone to vent their frustrations, express their feelings, and resolve their problems. So please, open your arms and hearts to those who've suffered loss and be that sympathetic shoulder for someone to cry on. We're all in this together. Well, unless you're crying over the demise of Smash, in which case you have a completely different set of problems (JK LOL sorta!). Your first step to recovery: Checking out what was awesome and nahh-some about the last seven days' worth of television.


FTW



Mad Men's Pete Campbell fell down some stairs
httpiimgurcomoQnzqR3gif

The true beauty of SCDP's between-seasons expansion has finally emerged. 



The final edit of Saturday Night Live's "Darryl's House"

*Please excuse our tardiness on this one—we don't always get to watch SNL before this story's Sunday deadline.*

Zach Galifianakis's second SNL outing was uneven—we expect more out of our Game of Thrones sketches, and there was nothing Nikolaj Coster-Waldau could do to fix that one—but we can't deny the absurd appeal of this two-part bit about a dude shooting a TV show in his living room for the local public access channel. Admittedly we were lukewarm on it at first, but once we saw the end-of-the-night follow-up (complete with a real Jon Hamm cameo!), we were sold. Runner-up: Fred Armisen demoing the new Google Glass specs. 



Nearly all of NBC's comedy verdicts

Out with the middling-to-terrible 1600 Penn, Guys With Kids, Up All Night, The New Normal, and Whitney! In with another round of Parks and Rec and Community! Who knew we'd ever agree with so many NBC programming decisions at once? (Miss u already, Go On.)



Sheldon and Amy have sex... Dungeons & Dragons-style


No, they didn't physically do it, but It was sweet and personal and revealed a lot about how, on the surface, Amy and Sheldon's coupling appears to be a terrible idea. But at the end of the day, they get one another and love one another and blah blah blah vomit etc. Also worth a mention: Wolowitz jazzed up a mundane round of D & D with some bomb celebrity impersonations, including Nicholas Cage as a Tree, Al Pacino as an Ogre, and Christopher Walken as a dragon. 



Mama June and Sugar Bear got married

...and based on the pictures, it was actually kind of cute and not at all the horrific trainwreck of tastelessness you'd expect from the Honey Boo Boo gang. Before we all hiss at the camouflage-and-hunting-orange attire, let's take a minute to be honest: This was not the world's first camo-colored wedding. Nope, it's actually kind of a thing, and somehow this is one of the better examples of it we've seen. Good for them!



The Colbert Report's Great Gatsby-themed edition of Reading Rainbow

Stephen Colbert's entire Gatsby episode was great (sign us up for the cOlbert Book Club!), but the highlight was this segment he shared with Carey Mulligan, in which both parties confessed that they'd never read the book—and then set out to educate themselves by following a certain butterfly in the sky...



Arrow's triple threat

The adventures of Team Arrow were a real hoot in the season's penultimate episode, with an A-plot that allowed all three of the show's big names—Oliver, Diggle, and Felicity—to take on a mission together. It was fun, it was entertaining, and it popped in very comic book-y ways. Plus it showed how much chemistry Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, and Emily Bett Rickards share in these sorts of scenarios... which we all suspected would be the case, but it was nice to be proven right. More of this next season, show!



Psych broadens its comedy horizons

Season 7's winning streak continued with "Office Space," possibly the most uproariously funny installment in the series' history. Stars Dulé Hill and James Roday married slapstick with their signature, subtle quips to hilarious effect—with able assists (and scratch 'n' sniff stickers) from Geico pitchman Mike McGlone and The Office's Dave Koechner.



Juliette Barnes gets sauced on Nashville

The troubled starlet dealt with her problems the same way mankind has for centuries: by getting ripped. As the night went on, she got progressively more wobbly and Hayden Panattiere hammed it up like a champ. (Missed the episode? Relive the fun with Tim's photo recap of Juliette's escapades, complete with GIFs!)



Reese + The Machine = A lot of dead bad guys

In Person of Interest's Season 2 finale, Reese teamed up with The Machine to become the number-one badass in the world. Here he is, from The Machine's point of view, wasting some meanies as The Machine helped out by telling him where they were coming from.




WTF




Community's darkest timeline-infused season finale

It's really nice that the show is returning for another season, but we think it's time to let go of some of the long-standing gimmicks and concepts. Move on.



R.I.P., Happy Endings

Admittedly, ABC really had no choice but to cancel the low-rated comedy. There are guys painted like robots dancing on street corners who get more viewers every week than Happy Endings did. But of course the loss still sucks. At least it was fun while it lasted, and hopefully the stellar cast will move on to bigger things now that they've demonstrated their comedic chops (or maybe USA Network will save the show and make everyone happy). And if Elisha Cuthbert winds up in the possible 24 reboot, give that woman a plate of ribs, dammit.



Supernatural brings back a beloved character... just to kill her


R.I.P., Sarah Blake, but to be honest, we all saw it coming.



Voting inconsistencies plagued the first round of live voting on The Voice

All text and online votes were dismissed due to irregularities. The show claimed that ditching the votes didn't affect the outcome of the first round of live eliminations, but still, not a great start for pretty much the only show NBC has going for it right now. 



SNL did "The Californians" AGAIN last night

And once again, it seemingly went on forever. Please oh please will you just kill this sketch once and for all? Because it deserves to be run over—repeatedly—on the 405. (Also: What did you think of the episode overall? Let's just say we were preeeeeetty disappointed even though we'd really been looking forward to Kristen Wiig's return.)

What's wrong with them killing Sarah on Supernatural? It raised the stakes, Crowley and the Winchesters have always been doing a little dance but never really wounded each other despite being mortal enemies and constantly screwing with one another's plans. Crowley has finally thrown down the gauntlet, either him or the Winchesters is going down (obviously him) and soon. Fans of Game of Thrones have gotten used to people we like dying, people we like die in real life, so why shouldn't they in tv?

Orphan Black! One of the shows I'm looking forward to the most each week. It really does have something for everyone. As others have said, Tatiana's performance(s) are quite good and very distinct. But I also get a big kick out of Felix, enjoy the timely and thought-provoking subject matter, and love seeing where they're taking the plot each week. I knew almost nothing about it when I started watching so it's been a real joy to see what develops. There have been a couple genuine surprises which doesn't happen often for us experienced television watchers. Greatly deserving of a weekly review next season and I'm crossing my fingers for a season one wrap-up review! And in case you editors haven't noticed, we're a pretty vocal group ;) so there would be a fair amount of comment traffic on the articles lol.

Also FTW:
-Hannibal (getting to be a weekly listing for me!) The cooking montage was both horrifying and fascinating.
-Person of Interest finale
-Nikita getting renewed even though it's a ridiculously low number of episodes
-Bates Motel. Not for any particular thing this week but just because I'm really enjoying it! I wasn't sure how good it would be when I first heard they were making it but I've been very pleasantly surprised. Vera Farmiga is always great and is doing a tremendous job with a complicated role, as is Freddie Highmore.

After reading all the glowing comments here about "Orphan Black", I did a little homework on it as I have not seen it yet and found this from "Zap-2-It":

"The innovative series ("Orphan Black") has earned critical acclaim including The Hollywood Reporter saying “It is, flat out, one of the most intriguingly entertaining new series of the year,” TV Guide Magazine calling it: "a tangy, sexy blend of sci-fi and Run Lola Run-style chase thriller." and the New York Post proclaiming: “If God and the Emmys are fair, at least six Maslanys will be picking up statuettes this September.”

Shows don't get great comments like this every day. Guess I better check it out!

That New York Post quote is perfect. If she isn't nominated for Best Actress then they should just dump the category completely because its meaningless. In the first episode alone she did more than Claire Danes has in two seasons on "Homeland". Thanks for that.

I'd certainly recommend Orphan Black to anyone and everyone who enjoys television, and I think that everyone should at least try it. Especially considering the fact that Sarah, the main character, is actually a capable and skilled protagonist--as opposed to your usual person in this situation who bumbles around barely staying alive and only getting away with anything due to luck and coincidence--this is a smart show that takes a complex, honestly ridiculous premise and turns it into something very honest and true. And if for whatever reason you aren't a fan of long, drawn out prose, full of commas, and more, commas--as well as dashes--(not to mention parentheses; in which case, congratulations on reading this far), then I have two simple words for you: Orphan Black.

Just a word on your saying that the premise is ridiculous.The Raelian UFO sect has through its leader Rael founded Clonaid Corporation in 1997and there are rumors that an american woman already gave birth to a daughter, Eve born December 26, 2002. Clearly this is the real life premise for the show and it doesn't seem as ridiculous to me. Please do not take this with any hostility as there is none.

Actually, what I meant by "honestly ridiculous premise" was not the clone aspect, but rather the events and circumstances that initially created the situation that we now find the show in. What I mean by this is that we have the extreme coincidence where (SPOILERS ahead; if you haven't seen the show so far, do not read what comes after.) Sarah bumps into one of her clones--who just happens to be committing suicide when she arrives and leaves her idea behind on the track--allowing her to take her identity, she then decides to take over that identity of a woman who just happens to be a cop, and then there happens to be a massive conspiracy going on.

Now, it could turn out to be that it wasn't just coincidence that brought Sarah face to face with a fellow clone committing suicide, but at the moment the operating assumption is that it was a coincidence. And as we learn more and more about this cloning conspiracy, it has become more and more structured in a way that makes things actually believable. And in general, that's what has happened with the show. We started with something that was chaotic, jumbled, and pretty laughable in how many coincidences came together for Sarah to insert herself exactly into the perfectly balanced place that she is now, story-wise that is (I don't think anyone would find themselves feeling balanced if they were in her position). But over the course of a relatively few amount of episodes, every coincidence except for that first one (her finding Beth on the track, assuming that was Beth, and I don't assume that for one moment) has been examined and filled out, so that instead of coincidences created by the writers for the sake of convenience, they have become the skeleton of a very complex, intricate, and beautifully functional creature.

So yeah, I agree with you that cloning is actually not so much fiction anymore. especially since Dolly the sheep was cloned 17 years ago. As sci-fi shows go, this is more like sci-fi-lite than anything else. I guess when I wrote my comment I should have been more specific about what was ridiculous, or maybe I should have just worded it differently to convey that I was referring to the many unlikely coincidences that the premise depended on, as opposed to the technologies showcased in this show. And don't worry about me taking your comment with any hostility, because again, I completely agree with what you said.

I remember watching Benedict Cumberbatch become a star on 'The Last Enemy'. Awesome far out but still possible plot, great show and In some ways it reminds me of Orphan Black, though more in style than substance

I really liked "The Last Enemy" as well, though I would saw that it was a lot less far out (in terms of the technologies it used) than Orphan Black. At the time it was made, the only technology in that miniseries that wasn't already invented in real life, at least as far as we know, was the (SPOILERS, so don't read on if you haven't seen "The Last Enemy" or "Orphan Black.") was the virus which targeted only people with a specific genetic make-up. Otherwise, one of the big points of the miniseries was that all of those technologies they had in there are things that actually exist today, and back then as well. It's just that, thankfully, the government hasn't gone ahead and implemented a 1984-like world.

Orphan Black, on the other hand, has human clones (something which could exist at the stage it is in the show, but that we have no actual proof of) and tails. These two things could exist, but aren't common knowledge.

When I first started watching Orphan Black, I thought it was going to be a lot like Ringer, except with clones instead of twins. And for many people out there who saw the promos, but haven't actually seen the show, that's probably what they think the show is about as well. But in reality, the arc of Sarah impersonating Beth's life is not even an essential part of the show. Because on top of the many scenes where she's impersonating her dead fellow clone (possible spoiler/theory of mine: we don't actually know that Beth is dead; think about it), we also have the elements of a procedural, family drama, international intrigue, borderline sci-fi, and the constant twists that are, for the most part, actually shocking and handled very well.

Beth is definetly dead as several characters visited her in at the coroners'.
Reply

We know that a clone jumped off of that train platform, and we know that this said clone had with them Beth's identity. And it is this clone that several people have visited at the coroners'. But, so far, we don't actually know that it was Beth who committed suicide; it could have been another clone that was pressured into committing suicide, or something like that. I mean, we didn't even hear her speak.
Reply
Flag
I honestly think it was Beth, because otherwise she would have taken the 50 000 dollars before "her suicide", if we are going with that notion.I also think that the German clone coming with Helena, the Killer Klone as I call her, in tow was the game changer for whatever happened on that underground.Also, among all the clones, Beth had an Army Black Ops soldier as monitor, which kind of make her special.Anyway, as you can see there is room for thought.
Reply
Flag
Those are all good points. Although keep in mind that we actually don't know who any of the monitors are for the other clones, or what kind of training they have or don't have. I mean, we're meant to assume that the one student is Kassima's monitor, but it could just be that she's having a thing with Dr. Leekie, and is embarrased of what Kassima would think about that. And if she is, in fact, Kassima's monitor, we still know practically nothing about her background. For all we know she could have been black ops as well, or had some similar military training.

And we still don't know who Allison's monitor is, so that could have military training as well. Still, you're right about Beth being special, if only for the fact that she intentionally killed a member of the radically religious "let's kill all the clones" group. I mean, not even Olivier know about that organization, much less the identity of one of their members.

First, I am glad to know you as you are very smart in your analysis.Second, yes, a body switch could have occured between the underground and the coroner's, but then this would open a subplot can of worms. I thought like you that it seemed a weird coincidence ( which do not exist) that Sarah just came by as Beth committed suicide. If you watch the opening scene again, you will see that Beth is looking at Sarah from afar, getting her attention before committing the deed. On the other hand, Sarah was returning to her home town after having escaped a year (or three I can't remember right now) without anyone's prior knowledge. Beth could have found about Sarah, through her police work, and had Sarah followed, but then that means that there is someone else nobody knows of yet. :)
Reply
Flag
Precisely. In fact, judging by how well the writers have though everything else out so far, I think there will be a better reason for why Sarah happened to run into a clone of herself committing suicide (who also was nice enough to leave some clothes and a purse behind), than just "it was one of life's moments." Also, I'd like to point out that I don't necessarily think that there was a body swap involved. The clone who jumped could have been someone other than Beth, and Beth could have made them jump for some reason (threatened their family or something like that). But yeah, considering the fact that, the more we learn about Beth, the more it becomes clear that she had an agenda that no one else knew about, it's very likely that she faked her own death. Just like Sarah.

Orphan Black was certainly a FTW this week, as it has been every single week that it has been on. Not since Game of Thrones have I gotten so pumped about a new show, in part because, similar to GoT, it started out great, and then just gets better each and every single episode. In all honesty, Orphan Black could have gotten away with a whole lot less, and still been a good show. But, similar to the Americans, it has intentionally crafted itself into a show that is composed of several different shows.

(1) The thumbs up notifications always show the date of the first thumbs-up, so I can google up an old comment of yours and drive you crazy all day long. I think it also always shows the names of the first 3 people "and x other people" when it should probably loop through the array in the opposite direction. Or maybe it should use a stack. That would make more sense, then it could pop the three most recent names off the top. Fun with data structures.

That's one of the issues. Sometimes the thumbs up will show the date of the first one, and sometimes it shows the time lapse since the most recent one (it's not consistent there). And usually it shows the 3 most recent people "and x other people" while other times it shows the first 3. Monkey's probably playing with variables. But through your reply, you've already shown more familiarity with what's going on than those that are running the site.

WTF - The Mentalist season finale. This whole season was underwhelming, like waiting for the other shoe to drop. Patrick Jane become more of a tool this season than ever before. I don't even care who Red John is anymore.
WTF - Mark Valley & Chi McBride are available again!
FTW - Mark Valley & Chi McBride are available again! Any takers for a Human Target resurrection? Anyone? Netflix??

You're so right about The Mentalist. Patrick Jane can't carry Red John's backpack. "I'm with the CBI, you better watch out or I'll sell ya some CBI cookies." Gimme a break, I never cared...

In FTW-ing Orphan Black, I seemed to have forgotten POI as a FTW. Silly me. POI's season finale was aweeeeeeeeeeesome. Hot damn I love that show.

Despite already mentioning them, I'll say it again:

ORPHAN BLACK = FTW.
HAPPY ENDINGS' CANCELATION = WTF.

On lesser notes, Psych was a FTW again this week. Go On's cancelation was also a WTF.

I only agree on 3 of your FTWs, Psych, Arrow and POI.
