Bryan Fuller Makes Great Shoes

edited August 2009 in Social Entropy++
He's been a writer for Star Trek Deep Space Nine and Voyager, he also wrote the pilot for The Amazing Screw-On Head, as well as being a producer for all these shows. But his gems as creator, writer and producer are these three:

dead-like-me-the-complete-collection-20090218041405479-000.jpg
and

pushing-daisies22.jpg

This is the place to talk about how fucking awesome those three shows are, and how great the Amazing Screw-On Head pilot is, or I guess Star Trek stuff, whatever

    Dead Like Me is actually better.

    Well, I guess it depends which Simpsons you're talking about. The good one, which ended about 5-6 years ago, or any season or episode since.

    Dead Like Me is an alright show but the inconsistencies about the "rules" of their world kind of irked me.

    And the direct-to-DVD movie they released has 100% less Mandy Patinkin

    and apparently they didn't air all of the episodes of Wonderfalls, and the ones they did were out of order and sub-par.

    It's amazing on DVD, though. I should watch it again.

    I love Pushing Daisies and Dead Like Me

    I should finished watching the latter; Mori doesn't like to watch it too often

    My mother's reaction to Pushing Daisies was hilarious (too morbid for her liking) but my dad and little brother and sister got into it

    goddamn the dead like me movie was just sooo awful compared to the series. worth watching for completion's sake, but it just didn't hold up.

    also the complete series and the movie are on netflix instant queue

    ehh, the movie doesn't ruin the series. it was just unnecessary and kinda ignored a lot of things they established in the series. plus, no more mandy patankin. it is good to reconnect with the characters though, especially mason. also, they replaced the actress who played daisy, which is awful

    also, the dvds for the middleman came out last week. it was such a great show, sucks that it didn't get renewed for another season. more people needed to watch it.

    also, natalie morales is a cutie patootie

    the middleman is soooo good, love all the references

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75LcXj3glXE

    but really, i'm surprised how good a few of the shows on abcfamily have been lately. sad that they cancelled middleman and kyle xy, but no other network was gonna touch it, so whatevs. plus make it or break it and 10 things i hate about you are grrrreat. its my new wb network circa like 8 years ago or so

    What? That's the whole reason I got into it in the first place!

    So anyone know exactly what episode was Bryan Fuller's last on DLM? When did he actually leave due to creative differences? I didn't notice any weird falling off so I can't tell.

    Also, Wonderfalls was Wonderful. I wish I had a little more.

    And Pushing Daisies is a masterpiece of cinema even though it's not in a cinema. It's that good.

    What episodes of DS9 and Voyager did he do?

    When will we get another Fuller show to love for a season before it is ripped from us again? (Seriously, the guy should just plan shows out in single season form with endings at the end of a season. He did that with Wonderfalls just in case. But sadly did not plan ahead with Pushing Daisies. And DLM's Halloween episode (I know, not Fuller) just was not an ending. Neither was the movie.

    By now Fuller should feel like Joss Wheedon except Joss has had more successful show time.

    And I don't watch Heroes and don't plan to after hearing how horrible it is getting. Not even if the first season is created by God herself.

    I dunno, I don't really feel comfortable using the "trying too hard to be clever" complaint, but man, really, space toilet meteor is the best death he could come up with? It bugs me, and I don't really have Showtime or HBO, whichever station it was on, anyway.

    Yeah, don't. The first season is somewhat interesting television, but it's still a poorly written network drama. I watched it through a second time while my roommate was watching it for the first, and I can't figure out why I liked it at all when it was airing. There's so many plot holes, and way too much bad dialogue. And the second and third seasons are just terrible.

    The first season of heroes had some neat moments and one really good episode, but they basically went down a list and checked off comic book cliches despite the guy in charge "never reading comics before I swear." It didn't help that a good 80% of the main cast is awful at acting.

    it's over the top, yeah, but that's not really the kind of humor the show relies on

    there's something about it though that keeps it from being great. I'm not sure if it was the actors or the writing or just the quirkiness, but it falls flat a lot. It's still good, but with higher production value, and a little tighter writing, it could've been a great show that probably wouldn't have been canceled. Wonderfalls suffers from the same thing, I think.
