    He gave this very grumpy and ungracious interview, it's entirely possible he was just in a bad mood, but he does have a bit of a rep for this kind of thing.

    It's funny hearing that from a guy that did so many horrible lapoon movies.

    That just means he's a pretty good expert on what's not funny.

    IMO a lot of the comedy is probably too cerebral for him and just goes right over his head.

    I think you mean Pam, Carol is the ditzy secretary, but yeah they do change her role as the series progresses. Also Venture Bros is pretty funny and well worth a look, though a little creaky in the early episodes.

    he did bitch-talked to him in front of his daughter and wife which i find completely unacceptable no matter what Chase did (he walked out from the set before shooting his last scene was the main cause apparently)
    As much as Chase is a dick, a fucking prima donna, it is harmon who is in the wrong here. making the voice mail public just added heat.

    Problem with expectations that high...give it a bit of time, just let yourself enjoy it. By the time you'll have made up your mind if you wanted to carry on watching it, you'll have actually finished the series. That being said, the extended pilot (Serenity) is much better than the second episode which was hastily thrown together as a new pilot for Fox because the first wasn't actiony enough. Which is ludicrous considering it starts in the middle of a war.

    I never much rated Firefly/Serenity. It was okay. But I came to the party late so I missed out on the whole zeitgeist.
    ...common and uninteresting.

    Finished the third season of Justified today. My goodness, I did not see that ending coming. "Slaughterhouse" was an apt name for it, on more than one level. Just another great episode in an incredible series. The last ten minutes were haunting, right down to the last line of dialogue.

    I also watched two episodes and didn't really get the fuss that was about it and had other better TV shows to put my time on...maybe I should go back to it since I did love Serenity quite a bit.

    Yeah, it's puzzling. The characters are decent, the movie was good, but I can't see where all the hype comes from. Firefly could have become great if it hadn't been canceled, but it's done.

    Buffy and Angel are still the highlights of the Whedonverse for me.

    I think the could is what gets most people. I actually had this discussion with a friend recently and we've come to the conclusion that yes, Firefly is a great show, but it's more a collection of ideas for something better. The fact it isn't complete really is a detriment to it, much like anything would've been in the same situation. I'm glad I've watched it as much as I have, but over the last year or so, my thoughts on it have tempered a little.

    Mostly Suits, Game of Thrones and (oddly for me) SyFy's Grimm. Which is an enjoyable enough supernatural/crime drama.

    I was watching The Walking Dead for a while but, frankly, I prefer the comics. Something about the series' departure from source grates at me something rotten.

    //tee-vee wot is this tee-vee?

    I can't seem to find the premiere of HBO's "Girls" on the internets yet, any help?

    Oh, and Game of Thrones, obv. No interest in reading the books, but the combination of texture and (lack of) substance is appealing enough in one-hour bites. Also, boobs.

    Interesting thing about Firefly in comparison to the rest of the Whedonverse is how strong it is right out of the gate, particularly compared to BtVS (we'll just pretend Dollhouse never happened). Course that raises the question of whether it would've gone on to still greater heights, or flamed out early, or what. There was certainly a long-term plan for the series, Serenity gives us many hints in that respect, but I guess we'll never know.

    Anyone seen Whedon/Goddard's new horror thing?

    I am quite disappointed by Game of Thrones season 2 so far,first episode was interesting but second one was quite lousy,hope the second season will be on par with first one.

    Regarding the Chase-Harmon schism:

    Chase started it by walking off the set because it was a day where the script was still being doctored as they were filming - He was unhappy with not having a script, or having it changed etc. so he walked off in frustration. Completely unacceptable.

    Harmon then decided to try and get the cast and crew to chant something like 'Fuck you, Chevy' to him at the wrap party, whilst his wife and daughter were present. Also completely unacceptable.

    Chase sent an angry voicemail, full of naughty swears, to Harmon. Rude, but understandable considering what had happened. Sort of.

    Harmon then retaliated by playing the voicemail in public to people. Rude.

    Harmon apologised, Chase hasn't so far, but I don't think he will. I just think it's a case of two very opinionated and blunt people colliding - In the long run I hope it won't affect the show, but I'm disappointed in any community fan who happily says things like 'Get rid of Chevy, replace him with another actor/character'.

    The first two were just to set things in motion I think, I did enjoy Tyrion's parts in the second episode.

    Man, don't get me started on the walking dead, they needed two seasons for that. The first 2-3 episodes were great, then nose dive and at the end of season 2, that last shot, bam! Skyrocket.
