Friday Link Roundup: November 6, 2009

A bunch of kvetching today. I blame it on the crappy weather.

1. The Atlantic takes another look at how 30 Rock‘s lost its way.

30 Rock‘s still a great show, but it’s been uneven as of late and could be a hell of a lot better.

2. The Watcher thinks that Mad Men isn’t the best show on television anymore.

What show does he compare Mad Men to? My favorite, Sons of Anarchy.

3. The New York Times thinks Flash Forward is picking up.

Personally I think they’re crazy, but whatever.

4. Alan Sepinwall answers some questions, including a bit on Cable vs Network budgets.

Not groundbreaking information, but interesting none the less.

5. FX is developing a new Western!

How awesome is that?



  1. Clay Morrow drinks more booze and slaps more ass than Don Draper could ever dream of.

  2. I have watched 30 Rock every week since the series opener, but the show has always been uneven. This is not a new thing, it has always been a huge part of the show that you cannot depend on the characters every week. It’s always been the thing that irritated me, but I’ve learned to see the show as a series of related sketches and not a cohesive whole, so I’ve had no huge trouble with it this series.

    Peter, what did you think of the “V” premiere? I’d love to read your take on it.

    • Hey Sally, thanks for coming by and commenting.

      I totally agree with you in that 30 Rock has always been uneven. I haven’t been watching it consistently week to week since the first season, but it seems to me that in the fourth season the highs haven’t been quite so high and the lows have been a bit lower. It’s still a damn good show, and I like it a lot, I just have higher expectations for the shows I do like.

      As far as V goes, I was going to throw up some thoughts after the premiere, but decided to hold off until I’ve seen the second episode. I should have some thoughts on the first two episodes up Wednesday morning.
