    Why Don't They Write Good Songs Anymore?

    This is the THIRD time (that I've seen) that you have posted this non-fact in the Green Room, and every time some points out that Muse - Knights of Cydonia won that year.

    True Detective

    Sadly, that's probably right if you're only referring to American shows. What nation's are producing television of the quality of American shows right now? Denmark had Borgen, the UK have Orphan Black -- they were pretty good. But airing right now (or recently finished, or soon to start) is True Detective, Justified, The Americans, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Hannibal and probably more great ones that I haven't the time to keep up with.

    JJJ TOP 100

    Apparently not, because it got number 2 that year. EDIT: I just noticed that someone already corrected that same mistake from you in January. Fair enough. If I had it in my head that Straight Lines got number 1, it would piss me off too. 'Ace of Bass - All That She Wants' got #29 in 1993, the same year that 'Asshole' was number 1. 5 years later 'Pretty Fly For A White Guy' was number 1. It's always been a mixed bag. The best thing to do is enjoy it when your songs come up and mock everyone that voted for any other song and then forget about it forever on January 27.

    JJJ TOP 100

    That alt+j song is boring. I can't imagine anyone saying; 'That was my favourite song of the year'. However it's not awful, unlike that Skrillex song. It was a terrible Hottest 100, but the voters did well to keep Bangarang anywhere near the top. Unfortunately, they let that shitty DnB group (Rudimental?) do well, so it's pretty much a zero-sum game in keeping out soul-less electronic music.

    2013 Oscar nominations

    Lincoln will win. It won't deserve to, but it will.

    Last Resort Cancelled

    Wha..? Am I speaking Martian today or something? I said I'd probably thought it looked like shit. You said it reviewed well. I pointed out that reviews are not a reflection of my views. What, exactly, is unclear in that chain? What do your views have to do with its cancellation?

    Block ops 2

    Why would anyone go out of their way to give you their opinion on it when you're, by your own admission, going to ruin their fun by hacking?

    Red Dwarf X

    Isn't that Red Dwarf's whole schtick? Almost every joke has a simile construction "X is about as Y as Z".

    Archery

    Phrasing.

    He has a way with the ladies

    It's from A Serious Man, but someone still presumably had to write it.

    Episodes

    Seven seasons later and it's pretty clear that of all the directions it could have gone, it went the wrong way.

    Pan Am

    I wouldn't get too attached. It probably needs a steady increase in ratings for the rest of the season to get renewed.

    Might and Magic Heroes VI

    Anyone remember General Kendall from Heroes III?

    Taste the happy, Michael!

    If it gets picked up, I doubt it would be in the fall schedule unless it goes to basic cable. I think Arnett could fit in 9-10 episodes in the Summer schedule. As long as Up All Night or Parks and Rec doesn't get moved to off-season -- and Community will get moved before either of those shows.

    Recomend Me a TV show

    The state of affairs of scripted TV in Australia is pathetic. Agreed. FX aren't fat and much of its programming is done on relatively small budgets. The creators of the original obviously greatly benefit from this. It's not a shiny, big budget show and it airs on Eleven. It's not gonna be a hit over here. Of all the international shows to be Americanised, this should be the least objectionable. It's on basic cable; it's fairly low budget and won't be a massive hit. The creators are heavily involved; one even gets to star in it, that's pretty unusual.
