5 Shows After Dark 6/4/13 | 30 Pop Culture Crushes You've Not Been Properly Nursing

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Three_nineteen

    Joel Kinnaman - everything to do with Rosie Larson + Peter Sarsgaard = trying it again.

  • amylu

    Whatever, Pajiba! I care! The Killing is flawed, sure. I've never been so frustrated at the tv as I was after the season 1 finale. But it's still better than 95% of "police procedurals." Isn't it? (Truthfully Hannibal is the only other procedural
    I watch.) I love the look and feel of the show (as much as I hate the sourpuss look on Mireille Enos's face and the feel of her dumb sweaters). Plus Peter Sarsgaard and Elias Koteas are on it this season!

    Oh, who am I kidding? I only watch for Joel Kinnaman. Holder is everything.

    (There was even a little bone thrown to the fanboys and girls of the universe on the premiere -- Jewel Staite commented on Holder's goofy "Serenity" tattoo.

  • Meg

    Yeah, the premiere actually wasn't hideous. Like I enjoyed it enough that I was having trouble deciding if it was just a mark of my low expectations, or if it was actually good. I'm still on the fence. But yeah, Peter Skarsgard! Also they got rid off everyone/everything that had to do with Rosie Larson (minus Linden and Holder.) Clean slate! They're probably going to butcher the whole Seattle homeless street kid thing, and ** spoiler I guess but not really it's not like you lot are gonna watch it anyway*** if that rape doesn't have some kind of fucking plot purpose than it was really just gratuitous and gross.

    Also if this season goes the same bloated red herring filled route as the others (which is a pretty likely possibilty) you couldn't pay me to hate watch it.

  • kali yuga

    Men of a Certain Age gets canned and this garbage survives. Whatever.

  • URnotright

    Testify!!! Bring back this and Terriers!!

  • Byakko

    Y'all know this show has Peter Saarsgard on it now, right? That alone should be reason enough.

  • BlackRabbit

    Am I the only one kinda creeped out by gifs? Not these specifically, and I'll still look at them, but still....

  • clocker

    I'll watch- mainly because pickings are so thin this time of year- but bemoan that it's such a pale imitation of the Danish original, Forbrydelsen.

  • MelBivDevoe

    Who's the dude on the couch between House & Family Guy?

  • justaguess

    evan peters in AHS?

  • MelBivDevoe

    Didn't even recognize him! Some fan I am.

  • kirbyjay

    KInda looks like Beck but not sure

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Unrelated: in high school, I had a classmate who had never even seen a fuck to give. In the middle of one of our most boring classes (Old Norwegian...yes, it's a thing), while the rest of us were dozing, she suddenly screamed "OH MY GOD, THIS IS SO BORING!" Anyway, it was funny and woke us right up.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Also: Jewel Staite found work you guys! Give the show a break, sheesh

  • URnotright

    Agreed! IF.....they get rid of the rock with a ponytail and leave the female duties on the show to someone who can do more than grimace. One attempt at showing happiness and then the rock spent the next 2 hours repenting. At the end I was hoping for someone/something to add her to the red bag collection! Holder don't need that CRAZY causing him shit for another season. Yes....I hate watch this show waiting for her demise. Is that wrong?

  • amylu

    She started off smiling and laughing and getting lucky in the premiere. I was so excited to see something different from her. And then, of course, all of that changed. Looks like those of us who are watching are in for another season full of constipation-face.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I DGAF, I loved the first two seasons and I thought the premiere of this season was REALLY good. Ok maybe just really good, but still.

  • Fredo

    After Season 1, I look at friends and acquaintances who still talk about watching this borefest of a shitshow with shock and dismay.

    Tom Welling-levels of dismay!

  • Clitty Magoo

    I watched season one. From that experience the name "Veena Sud" was seared into my gray matter and tagged with an irrational dislike of someone I've never met. Sud's contribution to television was tantamount to pretentious flatulence that she defended with a condescension that I did not appreciate.

    I won't be walking into that fart cloud again.

  • PaddyDog

    This.This. This. I have developed an irrational hate for the woman because of that show.

  • specialj67

    The real star of that show is the rain machine.

  • sean

    I actually don't care enough about the show to actually form the thought that I didn't care about it. At least until this article.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Every day is better with a little Sophia.

  • NoPantsMcLane

    Isn't Elias Koteas joining the show this season? That's reason enough to watch it right there.

  • Sofia

    Lohan's downfall wasn't in vain.

    That gif, man...

  • DarthCorleone

    And yet...I was thinking about giving it another chance.

  • lowercase_ryan

    at least watch the first ep, I thought it was good.
