Thoughts?

My first thought is I'm stunned that The Dark Knight Rises made the list. I don't understand that at all. And no Avengers to be seen.

MODERN FAMILY.

I hate American Horror Story, probably because it creeps me the fuck out.

EDIT:

And this thread will basically be a back and forth involving TDKR.

TDKR shouldn't be on there and the Avengers shouldn't either.

No surprise on movies.

BANE SHOULD BE NOMINATED FOR BEST EVERYTHING. COME AT ME, HOES

As long as there's a Triforce, there will be a Zelda;
as long as there's a prosperous kingdom, there will be an evil bent on destroying it;
and as long as there's an oppressive force threatening Hyrule, there will be a boy...




in a green tunic, silver shield, and magic blade to stand against it.

I absolutely agree. Avengers was just too much of a popcorn movie and TDKR's just has so many writing plot holes. I'm surprised TDKR's is on the list at all.


Seph, I loved me some Bane... until it's revealed that he's Talia's bitch and that ruined it for me... Kinda ruined the movie for me lol

WHERE IS DOWNTON ABBEY? I've never actually seen it (and it's not American).

BLAKE and Gordon was the best thing about TDKR.

Re: American Film Institute Film/TV Programs of the Year

I was going to come in and say Parks & Recreation not getting a nomination irked me, but I'm guessing this is strictly 2012 and not a full calendar year, so we could only go off of Season 5 (which admittedly has been great for the first 7 episodes) and parts of Season 4 rather than a complete season.

Breaking Bad & Mad Men are well worth their nomination based off of the last season of each. Mad Men in particular went to almost another level for me, it was a show I always loved but Season 5 just felt like they found a wonderful balance between the visual and writing whilst delivering some brilliant storylines for the characters and really hinting at some bleak and depressing realisations for many of the cast. Breaking Bad was Breaking Bad.

Think this will finally be the thing that convinces me to stop putting off watching Louie. That and Party Down have been the two most pimped comedies to me for some time now that I've never got around to watching.

BUBZ makes me really want to watch Beasts of the Southern Wild.
