  1. For some reason I stopped watching this show in S3 or so several years ago, can't remember why. Anyway, just spent some weeks binging the whole thing and it's so amazing, definitely one of the all-time greats of tv comedy. Have to add, apart from some moments, I didn't care for the latest season. I guess the cast are occupied with other projects these days, it just felt scrapped together. If I had to pick one episode that had me hurting from laughing it would be Who Got Dee Pregnant but i'm probably forgetting so many others.

    Athletic Debate: Who Is The Greatest Of All Time?

    You're quite the imbecile. You should've stuck to saying everyone that disagrees with you is a Trump supporter, that one was a real winner.

    I have noticed, it's almost as if he''s spent over 20 years putting on muscle mass in order to excel at his chosen sporting profession.

    Athletic Debate: Who Is The Greatest Of All Time?

    Lol your argument was "there's a reason goalkeepers aren't giants". There are plenty of great giant goalies. If we're still talking about LeBron, then obviously he would adapt his training methods to adjust to the most suited physical conditioning for a goalkeeper.

    No, but being freakishly tall generally means your reach and wingspan will be longer which is obviously an advantage. The likes of Courtois, Van der Sar and Cech are all around 6'6.

    Athletic Debate: Who Is The Greatest Of All Time?

    Compared to the all-time greats: Pele never tested himself in Europe. Maradona was probably just as talented but being a bit of a psycho didn't have Messi's temperament and cut his career short in his early 30s. Cruyff was incredible but not on Messi's level, he was also a chainsmoker. Best didn't have the longevity. Also, the overall professionalism, skill and fitness levels of footballers (and all sports athletes) today has never been higher. There's no doubt in my mind he's head and shoulders above the other greats of the modern era such as Zidane, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho

    Lionel Messi. The greatest ever footballer in the most played, most popular sport in the world and playing in the most competitive era of sport. But if we're going for great athletes who are great and could excel at other sports it's a pie in the sky argument. Roger Federer was apparently a good footballer before committing to tennis. LeBron is a freak athlete who is probably annoyingly naturally good at any sport he puts his hand to. Bo Jackson was the same. There's dozens of others you could name.
  8. Each to their own but i've never seen Six Feet Under and wasn't a fan of the other two shows.
  9. Ended too soon: Rubicon, Firefly, Deadwood Ended at the right time: Sopranos, The Wire, Breaking Bad, Justified, Southland, The Americans. Went on too long: Every other concluded show ever made

    MMA & Boxing 20: D.C. Stands For "Double Champ"

    They need to run it back. Lawler wasn't beaten, he gestured with his hand as he literally couldn't verbally respond with Askren's arm around his jaw. Dean really screwed the pooch here. Fair play to Smith for not taking the cheap DQ win, most probably would have.

    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    Makes sense. How else would they fit the couple breaking up in 1980 and then getting back together 5 minutes later. I was on the edge of my seat there despite the fact I knew they got married and had 2 children. Actually it took them 35 years to not solve the case. Worst. Detectives. Ever.

    Remembered another one: Twin Peaks Once they solved the main mystery the whole thing fell apart. Made an effort to take a second run at the whole thing before S3 aired a couple years ago and I just couldn't get through it. It became ridiculous even by its own absurd standards.

    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    When did she leave for Vegas did they ever say? I remember them saying she dies there in 87' or so. Surely she was still there while the case was ongoing at least. She was also being paid before the whole incident ever happened which would either show up in bank statements or people in a small community would notice the chicken factory employee has cash to burn all of a sudden.

    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    Agree with Kalbear, a dull, unremarkable and unsatisfactory finale. It boiled down to a basic story with very little going for it and the who mystery part in the "whodoneit" is a character that never even appears in the show until the rather unbelievable infodump confession. Also, Lisa. She gets paid a boatload of cash from the Hoyt family and neither the police or the residents of this small town ever question how the mother in the highly publicized case got so flush.

    Well shit it seems from reading replies I have forgotten a fair few. Black Sails I quit in the final season. Once they killed Ray Stevenson after never even using the character or actor properly I got pissed off. Fuck that. Heroes is another, it's a long time ago now but I didn't make it far into S2. Person of Interest: Gave it a chance but it was always a bullshit serialized show for basic tv. Didn't even manage to make it to the end of S1. Utter tripe. I didn't include comedies because they're the type of shows you can duck in and out of and not so reliant on a story arc as such. Perhaps a better thread would ask the question what shows turned to complete dogshit but managed to recover in later seasons. Not many I would guess.
