    I feel like I need some kind of scale to be created for reference. If you ALL thought that American Horror Story was "spectacular", then I need to know other terrible shit that you thought was "spectacular" so I can rate whether your opinion has any relevance to me or to sanity. American Horror Story was a train wreck. The only reason to watch it was to see the train wreck.

    Joanna, I'm beginning to notice lately, seems to just love everything (except for Twilight, I guess), but I thought Dustin has some standards between what is good and what is bad. Isn't that an essential quality of a critic? Can a critic just love everything? How can I trust an opinion that's always positive? I'm not trying to be insulting or cute. As a person who loves movies and tv, I'm genuinely concerned that something is going on that I don't understand. I mean, have people forgotten what good things look like?

    And, to be fair, it's not just you guys either. I'm having really hard time understanding film and television criticism in general anymore. Is it just that you're all forced to watch everything for your job, so your standards slip every year along with the quality of everything? There is a difference between good and bad still, right? This isn't Nam. There are rules. A story should exist, and characters should make sense within the context of that story. The characters should have arcs that travel across the season and sometimes across multiple seasons. You can't just assemble random scenes together and ratchet up the tension in the scene artificially. It has to build. There IS good television, and television has gotten better over the last decade than ever before, but there is also very bad television, and you can't just pretend it's not when you have to watch a lot of bad television back to back.

    I think the fact that Peter Dinklage isn't on this crushes me every week so far. That may just be because I'm an idiot however.

  • BWeaves

    That's what I keep thinking. You are not alone.

  • BWeaves

    Too much exposition. Please, get into the meat of the reviews quicker.

    Also, sounds like a con call. The sound quality was all over the place.

    Maybe it's just me, but I can't hear Dustin or Josh.
