Num Num Num! The Top 50 TV shows countdown continues, #47-48

Submitted by WERZOMBIES PRESS

We won’t be surprised if we cause an uproar based simply on the simply fact that there are many different opinions all across the planet.

Here the only opinion that matters is ours! =)

No, but we really would love to see some comments on this countdown.

We didn’t fall for fanfare or media propaganda. We focused on either great story telling, acting, script writing, or inventiveness.

Here we go…

#48 DARK ANGEL

Jessica Alba broke out in this show and for a time being gave people a glimpse of her actual, potential, acting skills.

Those went down the tubes if at least her body hasn’t.

But the direction and the stylish look of the series that lasted a scant two seasons was strong enough to warrant respect.

Wikipedia says this about the show: In 2009, a genetically enhanced, 9-year-old female super-soldier who calls herself Max Guevara, escapes along with eleven others like herself from a secret government institution, codenamed Manticore, where they were born, raised and trained to be soldiers and assassins. On June 1, 2009, months after Max’s escape, terrorists detonate an electromagnetic pulse weapon in the atmosphere over the U.S., which destroys the vast majority of computer and communication systems, throwing the country into utter chaos.

#47 CALIFORNIACATION

What warm blooded male couldn’t idolize Hank Moody? I mean what other loser, douche, with minimal success gets laid as much as he does?

Oh wait…this is the way of the time isn’t it?

Regardless, this show is strong in dealing with some serious issues of self-destruction and addiction. Also the father-daughter relationship and how failed offerings can affect it is a central positive for the show.

It is a bit over-the-top smutty and I think it does make women a bit too trashy, but at least they look good. I just get tired of the sex-tifying of women in television/movies.

Wikipedia’s offering: The series revolves around Hank Moody, a novelist plagued by personal demons. He blames his longtime writer’s block on a variety of reasons, ranging from the hedonism of Los Angeles to the departure of his girlfriend Karen. Hank constantly deals with the consequences of his inability to say “no” to drugs, sex, and alcohol, while trying to show his family that he can be a good, responsible, caring father to Becca and a monogamous partner to Karen.

  1. I haven’t watched CALIFORNIACATION but have heard good things about it and it has lasted the test of time. As far as Dark Angel goes, as mush as I like watching Jessical alba in leather (the only reason to watch this show) it wouldn’t make my top 200. It was okay and interesting the first season and went downhill from there. The lack of quality plots down the road doomed this show like so many that last only 2-3 seasons.

    • I thought it was darkly inventive…however your point of it going down hill from season 1 to 2 … agreed.
