The first season is very good, but Fuller left and so did half the writing team along with Gillian Anderson, sooooo who knows beyond that.

You're not alone but it's such an awful take. Preacher is the best comic book inspired show on TV. It's not close to me.

I loved Legion season 1, but 2 was a chore. Nothing happened. It's faux complexity hides that the writers make shit up and break their own rules from ep to ep, because David's "crazy" and we're in his head. It's called I can't make a coherent story or dialogue so I'll dress it up as psychological nonsense.

Preacher is better written, has better actors and better production. A developmentally disabled messiah, God in a bdsm dog suit, vampirism, Christian mafia, zombie fight club, voodoo, & Hitler, are always going to be > purposely distracted character shticks, alternate timeline smokescreens and wasting Jemaine Clement.

I haven't watched S2 of legion because everyones told me it was bad and I still am angry over how S1 ended.

Also I'll say it again, sharp objects is an HBO mystery show worth caring about if youre interested. Not an easy watch however.

S2 wasnt bad at all, its defiantly worth watching.

I thought it was solid. I definitely enjoyed it. A little oddly paced and some big moments just fell a little flat for me, dramatically. But I do say it's a good show, though now facing aforementioned issues.

Anyway, maybe I'm just bored and certainly I just love Brendan Fraser, but I'm going full in on early week's conversation with my backing of this

Spoiler!

I've been thinking of a way to organically work in how good Scrubs is and how its consistently disregarded when talking about the best comedies of all time. Thank you Mcgee.

Zach Braff's character is the worst comedy leading man, taking the title from Ted Mosby. It will always caveat anything from this show.

Wrong, nothing is worse than Mosby

Maybe big bang but I've never seen it

No one is even remotely close to as bad as Ted Mosby.

Despite Ted Mosby being awful, how i met your mother actually was watchable even some would say funny.

Zach Braff's character was worse. Although apparently a more nuanced awful, he was a black hole that trapped any ounce of merit from scrubs.

And Big Bang actually was good for a bit Chuck Lorre sold its soul for the sake of ratings, which was a slap in the face to most discrening viewers.

I think JD is a fair amount worse than Mosby

Funny, I don't remember being an UDFA for the Patriots. Must have slipped my mind.
