    Glad to hear it although season 3 was not to the level of the first 2.
    Concerning the long time between seasons, at least each season is independent of the prior ones.

    Considering they usually like to shoot at least some of the season in a snowy environment, they likely wouldn't be able to start shooting S4 until late this fall so I wouldn't expect to see it before spring 2020. Plus, Noah Hawley is working on the final season of Legion so that's probably going to take precedence before he gets around to writing S4 of Fargo.

    That sucks. I'm really loving Counterpart. Hopefully Netflix or someone else can swoop in.

    That's timely. We gave up on the show last week.

    Really?!? Last week (S02E08) was probably the best episode of the series so far (haven't seen S02E09 yet).

    What about Prime?

    (No, I'm not asking if Amazon Prime Video might pick up "Counterpart," I'm asking whether it's been canceled in both universes, or just this one. :D )

    Funny now, every show that we like gets cancelled we hope one of the streamers pick it up :) That's a good thing

    Maybe I knew it before and have just forgotten, but in my perusal of my To Do list, I was surprised to see a new season of Ransom starting on Saturday.

    This show isn't great, but somehow I have gotten into it. I guess it seems more "movie like" than a lot of shows.

    I've never watched Modern Family, so the details of this are lost on me. But the post points out the reason that I watch almost no sitcoms.

    I think in the past 15 years I've watched two or three, BBT (glad this is the last season), Rosanne (New), and I'm hard pressed to think of any others.

    There are some good ones that seem to stay fresh over time. TBBT has been able to mostly stay fresh of the current ones I watch. A show like M*A*S*H or Seinfeld were mostly fresh throughout their series, the former turning much more serious, the latter had less than stellar last year when Larry David left, but the stories were different. But a lot of them overstay their welcomes, I agree. But I found the same with some long running dramas too. ER seemed to rehash a lot of the same stuff, just with different characters toward the last few years.

    I agree that long running dramas tend to do a lot of rehashing. I quit watching ER after about 3-5 years because if that.The only reason I still watch The Black list, is to see James Spader chew up the scenery. the story is a never ending onion peeling exercise. but he makes it worth while.

    Mike Reiss has a great story about this in his excellent (if you're a fan) book about The Simpsons. He points out there are, when you break them down, a finite number of stories. He then lists a few of the "basics" and how they have applied to various characters over 30 years. It's impossible not to get a little stale after a while.

    I wonder about why The Simpson's doesn't do something to change things up. Heck let the kids grow a year or 5. Then you'd have more stories from the changeup, and you'd probably get more people watching again if they've dropped off due to hype.

    I’m not sure the ages really matter for the kids. It is not like the ages really play a large part in their stories. Bart basically ran a speakeasy at age 10! And they do stories set in the future quite a bit.
