It's going to be very disappointing to see 30 Rock lose to The Walking Dead. I'm not even a 30 Rock fan, but yeah, that sucks.

How come you dislike the walking dead so much? Just not into it or are there specific reasons?

Only reason I voted for The Mentalist was because it's up against 2 and a Half Men. Voted for Simpsons and HIMYM even though they're not that good anymore because I don't watch the shows they're up against.

Because I don't like Soap Operas. Especially poorly written and acted Soap Operas. I gave fully outlined reason in whatever version of the thread was active for the first half of the second season, so if you can dig up that thread you can get all those reasons. I've always been a huge fan of zombies, and I really wanted to like the show, but I couldn't. Outside of the absolutely brilliant pilot episode, everything that followed ranged from mediocre to awful. I stopped watching after the midseason finale of season 2 because I just couldn't stand how poor any of the payoff for the show was.

I can see why people like the show, in the same way that people like 2 and a half men. But like 2 and a Half Men, it is not a good show. I watch a lot of bad shows too, but a bad soap opera has to be the worst.

It's weird how people have such different opinions on shows. I think you might be the only person I know so far that despises The Walking Dead.

I can understand that. There were parts that were drawn out for way too long and it can get predictable at times. I'm still gonna tune in though :P

I voted The League only because I like it better right now.

Walking Dead was the easy choice

Never seen The Mentalist, but still got my vote.

I always hated Frasier and like How I met your mother.


Keep voting guys/gals

I hate it for the same reasons bassi does. I don't get why people like this show at all, other than because zombies are kind of 'in' right now. The acting is super poor, the writing is boring, and the plot hinges on (as bassi says) soap opera grade drama. And when there's "exciting" stuff, it's within 14-A confines. There's no edge at all, and the characters are just tropes. Boring, one dimensional tropes.

I'm re-watching The Sopranos right now and it's so good it makes me want to cry. Edie Falco is the best actress in TV, the story is remarkable, there's so much going on in every episode. All these weird meta jokes, so much symbolism, political/social commentary, and great, memorable dialogue.

After the obnoxiously dated first season, I'd say The Sopranos is the best show in TV history (dethroned Deadwood), and it rarely even get mentioned in all of these TV threads on CDC.

My hat goes off to all of you who choose HBO over AMC, NBC, and that stuff.

EDIT: To be fair, I only saw the first season and one episode of the second. I even read a bunch of the comics (which I enjoyed). But it just doesn't translate well, and after I saw the second season didn't improve, I jumped ship.

^^^

Ever occur to folks that perhaps Walking Dead is getting a number of default votes because people don't want to choose 30 Rock either? Eenie, meenie, miney, moe...... I'm not a fan of either show but in order to vote in the poll for the shows you do like, you're forced to vote in all pairings regardless of whether you're a fan or not.

While God knows I hate to agree with GJ about anything, (even the state of the weather), I do agree that The Sopranos rule over all.

It's a shame that The League is going to lose out to a show that hasn't been funny in a very long time...
