You mean All in the Family
? Great show.
Yeah, that's the one I mean.
It had some unmemorable Finnish title that I've forgotten. But I figured everyone's heard of Archie Bunker.
Btw, I completely forgot one sitcom that I really liked back in the day: Third Rock from the Sun
. I think I watched all seasons of it. It was really good, and I still think so. I loved Sally's character.
Well, all of the characters were good.
Hmm, I finally got around to watching True Detective
to the end. It was a liiittle bit weak in the very last episode*, but overall I think it turned out to be a splendid series. There's something about the American "South" that I like.
And gosh do I love the intro theme
of the thing.
Admittedly, the series is a sausage fest. And the women in it were mostly very neatly on the virgin-mother-whore axis. But there was something that made up for it, something in the way the women characters were written. The things they said were... to the point. As if they had minds and wants of their own. Like reality. I like that.
*My beef with the ending was that they overdid the whole "crazy inbred white trash in the bayou" cliché. I had been expecting it to be about something more inspired. And they made the cynical atheist detective have some kind of afterlife experience and even make a weird spiritual life-affirming observation at the end. For, what I could tell, very little reason.
