TAXI: BROOKLYN is an action-comedy police procedural centered on the fractious, closely bonded partnership between a streetwise Marseilles-born New York City taxi driver and an intensely driven NYPD detective for whom this immigrant cabbie becomes chauffeur, insider on the streets, and unofficial partner.

Looks like it was cancelled after one season. Bummer. I'm enjoying it.

totally thought this was a flavor thread XD

 

what possessed you to start watching this, todd

 

just a huge fan of the source material?

Just looking for something to watch until the new episodes of Orange Is the New Black came back.

And, we were fans of Monk, and this looked kinda similar. It is. Not nearly as good as Monk, but similar.

It's definitely not the greatest show, nor is it even close. But the wife and I like the characters and that seems to be the most-important factor when we find a show that we like—the characters.

It'll get us through until the 12th!

Just finished re-watching the first two seasons of Orange is the New Black, thank goodness Hannibal and Major Crimes are back because between finishing those two seasons and Drag Race being over for another year I don't know how I would have kept myself pinned to the couch between now and the 12th.

How about just in the what are you watching TV thread?

 

For fuck's sake, if there's a separate "What are you spotifying?" or some other brand name wanker bullshit you all need to be killed.

My girlfriend is watching this show Sense8 and it is fucking awful

We've watched three episodes and there's been maybe a total of 10 minutes of plot progression and the rest has been attractive people having sex with each other (which I don't have a problem with, but I'll save it for porn), and the writing is really cringeworthy at times

Seems like total tumblrbait to me

Don't mind my opinion though, I wouldn't speak for anyone else though, it has gotten good reviews elsewhere

My main problem with it is that it seems to be a bunch of characters with the absolute barest minimum of plot. The characters are well thought out at least, with a bunch of people that normally don't see on TV (actual lesbians, trans, etc). Also the dialogue is terrible, everyone seems to talk in clichés, though it is a Wachowski thing so I guess that should be expected.

Also there's a lot of LGBT acceptance preaching in the first two episodes, I dont have a problem with that at all but it really does stick out like a sore thumb and brings me out of the shows world hard

Mostly it just seems like an excuse to get attractive people's clothes off and to make points about LGBT stuff, the SciFi plot is there but seems pretty inconsequential, though there a few cool sequences that deal with the... ability the main characters have (end of episode three is particularly cool)

That is pretty much what my son told me.

Although he liked the show, he thought that the LGBT stuff was a bit heavy-handed. He knows about Lana Warchowski and figures that is was something that she really felt that she needed to do, given her own personal circumstance, but just thought it was a bit… much.

the show but that is also good to know. 

 

feels like I've seen it mentioned a lot lately for whatever reason and it's right there. Plus I need to fill the hole that the utterly terrible new season of Orange is the New Black has left in my binge schedule

The show is incredible. There's a dip in quality early in the second season, but it redeems itself through a lot of great character moments. I haven't been able to convince any of my friends to watch it because "eww high school" and "eww football" and "eww texas" and "eww god", but it is one of my favorites.

Watch it CI, good show. My wife liked it after convincing her to watch and she absolutely hates football.
