I don't watch the seventh season of anything. At this point they're just repeating the shit out of themselves.


Seventh season of 24 was pretty unique compared to earlier seasons.

Well, except for bit where Jack Bauer kills the terrorists.

ok i m not reading everything because i m not sure you guys all have spoiler alerts. Basically what I wanted to say is that after seeing the 1st episode of the seaason 7 I dropped dexter. This was one of my favorite TV shows and the first episode of the season 7 was way too stupid. running in circles again, it seemed like nothing new would be explored. So you guys are saying that the season 7 is worth it, and at least much better than the 6? As a former dexter fan, can I fall in love with the show again? I though it would be better to leave it as it is

Three seasons is my limit. I stopped watching Prison Break after season three, stopped watching Lost after season three and House after season three. I stretched it longer for Family Guy but I don't watch it anymore. Basically it boils down to this, a series will have said all that it has to say in three seasons, anymore than that and it starts repeating itself! Drawing up similar scenarios and imparting similar moral lessons. After season three it's outlived it's usefulness.

I think prison break's season 2 was ok, then it became real bad.. Or heroes... great first 2 seasons, then wtf...
Regarding lost, it's the best show ever, all the seasons are good IMO.

Nevertheless, it's too bad an original tv show almost never stop at its best... i think a show's success can be bad because they sign for many more seasons and quality goes down.

In that sense, getting cancelled may have been the best thing for Arrested Development...

As far as I'm concerned, Doctor Who can last forever, it will always be (by far) the greatest series ever.

Prison Break used to be good ? I'm just wondering because I saw the first season and it seemed pretty bad from the get go.

I didn't think 6 was great, but it was a helluva lot better than 5.

-TG


I felt the opposite. 5 was mediocre, and 6 was terrible. It's too bad too, because the premise for 6 had a lot of promise. They just made it terrible. Which brings me to my next point.

To me, Dexter feels like a show that was originally planned to have a total of 5 or 6 seasons, but because the first few seasons were so popular, they decided to extend it. This meant that, for the entire arc of the show to work, they had to make a couple seasons of filler. Seasons where nothing substantial actually happens. This, to me and a lot of other people I know, was seasons 5 and 6. When they started making season 7, they knew that 8 was going to be the final season, so now they're free to have big, game-changing things happen.

And that's why season 7 was so good (best since 2, in my opinion), and why I have high hopes for the final season.

I agree, although I would call The Wire a cop show. Yes, there were police characters, but the show was about so much more than just them.

Kinda like Dexter isn't a cop show, even though a large chunk of the characters are cops. It's about Dexter, and the people that he affects/who affect him. Similarly, The Wire is about Baltimore, and the people that affect it/are affected by it.
