The strength in how well the cast works as a whole as well as the well created side characters means it won't be as hard to work around his absence, and who knows they might be able to create a well written character driven episode where the others react to him being gone.

Co-sign Alison Brie's comedy being underrated. The bit in the episode where they all get different lab partners only to be allowed to work together and then fallout when choosing who should work with who, and eventually it means they don't do the work and fail as a group which sees Annie faint out of her chair had me in fits of laughter. I also loved the way she tried to impersonate Blade over the phone in the episode where they try to stop Britta from contacting him.
Well if it was up to me I'd axe Shirley if a main character had to go. She has her good lines here and there, adds some sort of depth, but I could do without her overall. I'm merely not affected by the Pierce leaving since, like I said, I knew Chevy could split at any time. He's entertained me all the seasons so far. He'll be missed by me.

For some reason I always go back to Brie's moment on Introduction to Statistics where she exlaims "NEWS" in that squeaky voice. Gets me every time. Or on the same episode when she mentions how unpopular she used to be and says how the crossing guard used to lure her into traffic while weeping. She embraces the silliness well. Flows with the character being such a nerdie/goodie type.

Spoiler for e4:
curtis dying was actually pretty sad and I liked episode 4, considering he's felt a spare part this season it was prob needed
Spoiler for stuff:
Yeah I sort of saw Curtis leaving coming seeing how he's not done a lot this year but it was still sad as I'd really liked him. Final phone call with Rudy was well done. I feel like they'll put another one or two people w/ powers in since I can't see it just having the three main people. Rudy's still carrying the show sorta for me and I like the scouse kid, but the new girl needs to be less of a depressing bitch imo

I think Seth's been quietly written out too with Kelly leaving and there not really being that much for him to do

Spoiler for misfits:
Well I thought Seth was a better background character anyway. He was better as the mysterious dealer type than anything else. Yeah, the Rudy/Curtis scene was actually well done, the happy ending's line in particular.

Rudy is great. The third rudy episode was probably my favourite this season as rudy was actually a fun villian. We need to see more power usage though, the show is teetering with bullshit drama skins 2.0 if it continues with only 3 leads.


As for Community, it seems like she becomes a cliched christian depending on who's writing. She just has her usual spiel and it's not very interesting, however there are episodes she's also really good in. Consistently she's not written well, though.

Re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

Yep. That's the boat I'm in. Character who is the least consistent is Shirley. Writing is to blame there. You're correct on that. It's ok. Someone like Dean Pelton has almost seemingly taken her over so it's fine that she remains in the stance that she's at.

Pelton is amazing. He's perfect in the role he's in, in that he's not overexposed.

Re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

Yet they gave him just that tiny bit more that we needed to suffice per episode in the latter seasons. To the point where he's a gem every episode for being a main character that isn't actually inside the study group. Chang style. Only better I'd say. Chang still rocks, too. (imo)

Re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

I liked Chang best in S1, tbh. He was his best as a professor. Wasn't a big fan of the shirley baby stuff or anything.

Also Homeland S2, E5 = best episode of television I've seen this year. Damian Lewis/Claire Danes are both outstanding.

Better than Blackwater?

Chang's great in small doses. Last season he wasn't as good when they forced his comedy too much. Sometimes he goes past silly humour to just silly silly. The episode with the fire was the best Chang episode. Whole of Season 2 with him trying to get into the group was great too. Dictator Chang was a bit much though.

Dean was the highlight of the last season. Perfect cameo character. Less is more.

Re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

I have a feeling with Chase leaving, they might throw a bit more of Chang into the mix...hell they might have him join the study group finally. Personally i wouldn't be too excited about it, he works best when he just has a minor appearance in an episode like the Dean...but his their only true villain left so we might get more of him this season.

Shirley is just a meh character, the only main character on the show does really doesn't leave much of an impression on me. I mean i hate Britta...but i still think shes pretty funny at times...but Shirley is just there...which is weird since she had quite a few big episodes.

Saying that i love the episode Pierce pants her in season 1...ahh shmityy

Very hard to compare, arguably better though. Comparing the two is hard. Blackwater is more of s spectacle, and probably more fun in a way but the Homeland episode is pretty spectacular in terms of the characters and the acting is faultless.
