C'mon, let's sweat baby.
I thought the same until my wife (who's usually good about these things) said that she didn't understand what was going on. They left that in there to help slower viewers, I guess.
It also acted to give a feeling of Deja Vu. It's the same reason they used teh same exact clip of Pierce laughing, Jeff turning to Britta and saying, "No!", Jeff getting smacked on the head by the fan, etc.
I didn't care for it either. I just didn't care about 6 different scenarios for the same time frame. Especially without some really funny moments (which they've had before a lot).
It was obvious one would be horrendous, several would be relatively fine, a few would be very good. While the idea perhaps hasn't been on many TV shows, the overall theme is pretty well covered in literature and such. We get it -- based on the outcome of something random many different outcomes could come to pass.
I've never seen the movie Clue, but am guessing I wouldn't like it.
They sure got their moneys worth out of "Roxanne" for sure
... and Theo Huxtable!
This show - for me - is teetering a bit between comedy and fantastical whimsy. I have a "Pushing Daisies" sized hole in my heart and this is helping ease the pain somewhat.
...and I sure hope that they paid for the licensing rights that include DVD/streaming/rerun, or else this will be changed. (See: WKRP, The Wonder Years, and a zillion other less well known examples.)
I *love* time travel/alternate timeline stories, but I'm closer to the "meh" side on this one. I don't know why.
I'm guessing that any music licensing deals done these days includes all the additional rights that nobody used to think about. It would be incredibly short sighted of the studio not to include those rights, and it would be short sighted of the artist not to grant the rights because it just provides more exposure for their music.
Just in case you missed it and you want to watch the cliffs notes version:
Cold Case is recent enough that I would've expected that too, but *supposedly* (I don't have a citation, it may just be a rumor) the reason it's not on DVD is because of music licensing issues.
That's probably less about the music and more about the fact that nobody would want to buy that show on DVD. And if the producers didn't get music clearance at the time, it was probably because they figured nobody would want to buy a DVD of a second-rate CBS procedural.
Hahaha, actually I came here to say I loved it. Did it make me laugh? YES!! It passes the test. If there was something meta here, I missed it. It was just a different concept, and different I like.
Edit: I think you misunderstand why I don't like some episodes, but I won't rehash it again.
I'm thinking the same thing. I watched the first 3 or 4 episodes from the first season and didn't laugh once. I figured I had given it enough of a chance.
Like Pierce, I laughed every time Jeff got knocked in the head. And everytime Britta started singing Roxanne and Jeff said "NO!"
The tone really changed between the first season (6 episodes) and the second season. It was like the first few were just a trial, trying to figure out who the characters where and how they should act, and by the start of S2, they'd figured it out and had nailed it. You should definitely give it another chance.
Umm, it was an excellent show (and I lost like 2 seasons of it when my S3 drive just died -- seemingly spins, but isn't recognized at the hardware level by computer or Tivo), and there have been LOTS of series released on DVD that I don't think lots of people would buy.
The music was VERY intrinsic to the show, with songs for whichever year's cold case they were doing that week.
As I've said in other thread and with other shows, give them time to tweak it. Parks and Rec has now been fully tweaked. Characters have been added and dropped. We now understand their personalities and don't need to be force fed info. The show is probably 60% different from when it first started. It keeps on getting better and better.
YES. And when they dropped that one guy and brought in Rob Lowe and the guy who plays Ben Wyatt, they really got to the potential of the show.
