I'm just guessing that the show would actually be more successful if it downplayed the feuds and actually focused more on the improvements being made and the business side of things.

Maybe it's on the wrong network for that sort of depth, but the asinine drama and the ridiculous tirades are what make me turn the show off before the midway point of any episode.

If the show wasn't so formulaic, that'd help. I don't know why reality shows are so fearful of breaking from their packaged presentation. They dumb things down for the lowest levels of intellect.

They also apparently did "Swanky Bubbles" I remember one time a friend said "How bout Swanky Bubbles" because it was different but it had a really bad rep so we didn't go there.

If the show focused more on the actual business of creating successful bars and less on the asinine personal feuds between employees (that half the time seem too absurd to not be completely fake), then it might be a show worth watching.

Each episode could be boiled down to 10 minutes of actually watch-worthy content. A third of the show is recapping what we've already been told (basically after every commercial break they repeat everything) and another third is talking heads from the employees that couldn't be less compelling.
And with that formula you have your standard half hour show.

Does anyone watch Under the Dome? I've seen the first couple, and for now I'm planning on watching it. It hasn't been anything special, but it definitely has me interested in at least seeing what the **** the dome is. Anything but aliens please.

But with that said most shows that are episodic follow a formula. Bar Rescue isn't unique in that regard.

I've seen one episode of Bar Rescue. That was enough. It's a less-good and less-interesting version of Kitchen Nightmares.

I saw the first episode and it was solid. I'm not holding my breath and hoping for some amazing omg reveals, but I'll keep watching it because I don't have much else to watch atm.

And Bar Rescue did an episode about a bar in the town I grew up in. After 10 minutes I couldn't watch any more.

Under the Dome is a goddamn abomination. It's so laughably bad. I watched the first two episodes just for the hell of it and will surely be skipping the rest and recommitting to my vow to discredit and bash CBS at all times.

Two days until 'The Bridge' debuts on F/X.

Count me in, though I may not watch it immediately. It's nice to let a few episodes of a new show build up on the DVR so I can watch them consecutively and get a feel for it.

I watched the first 2 episodes. I'm going to plan on watching a couple more, but ya, it's really hard to take so far.

I came into it under the assumption it was just going to be a mini-series based on the novel, but I've now read that it will be a full season and might be stretching it into at least 1 more season? I don't understand how that will work, just make it an entertaining miniseries like the rest of the Stephen King books.

The psycho boyfriend character is the most over-the-top, overly-dramatic, over-acted performance I have ever seen. I can't take anything about the show seriously with that guy. I just laugh every time he's on screen.

Agreed. The acting in general is not that great, but there's a few characters I think could be good (Big Jim, the smart kid).

The premise is great and could be awesome for like a 10 episode miniseries. But with the acting and how little they appear to have progressed from the pilot to episode 2, I'm not holding my breath. They seem to be setting up for a longer run.

It's just painfully cliche. I expect way more out of a show, even one I'm electing to watch as mindless short-lived entertainment.

Moving along ...

Yes, moving along to TV actually worth discussing...

Up until last night I haven't watch any episodes of Mad Men. My roommate was catching up on this season, so I watched a few episodes with him. Definitely entertaining and found myself just constantly thinking how awesome Don Draper is. I don't think I can watch it like episode after episode all in a short period like I can with other shows, but I may start periodically watching from the beginning.

Up until last night I haven't watch any episodes of Mad Men. My roommate was catching up on this season, so I watched a few episodes with him. Definitely entertaining and found myself just constantly thinking how awesome Don Draper is. I don't think I can watch it like episode after episode all in a short period like I can with other shows, but I may start periodically watching from the beginning.
If you think Season 6 Don Draper is "awesome," then you'll be pleased with how he was toward the beginning of the series, haha.

I have fond memories of marathoning Mad Men and sipping bourbon.

Excellent.

Like I said, I had almost nothing invested in it and watched a couple current episodes and it was entertaining. There were a couple points where I was just like ya, whatever and stopped paying attention for a couple minutes. I will probably watch off and on just to watch Don Draper.

Not that I'm comparing the shows in any way, shape, or form, but I feel like it's going to be similar to Entourage for me. Just watch a few episodes at a time just for Ari scenes and the occasional other badassary, otherwise meh.

Any one watching Big Brother this season? Long shot. But have to ask.

Mad Men is pretty much the opposite of Entourage. There are many great characters besides Don and really everything about the show is spectacular. One of the best television shows of all time.

If you are not watching from the beginning you will never appreciate how great the show is. It's like starting to watch a great movie when it is almost over, not being invested in the characters, and really not understanding the meaning behind most of the things going on.
