The Best of 2014: Worst New Show

Except it's not a new show. Keep your fingers crossed... maybe it will be on the overall worst list!

The Best of 2014: Best New Show

One of the things we're proud about at TV Fanatic is we're a site for fanatics. We are fanatics ourselves. Millions of people enjoy procedural television and we're not going to denounce someone's right to nominate THEIR favorite show of the year. Thankfully there is television for everyone to enjoy.

I don't know many divorces where all sides are cheerful as they think only about the others and their well being. They may get there eventually, but they have to be equally committed. Some men and women work well together. You lashed out at Lyla as she defended her need to protect her job as making her an unfit mother. What about Dan? He makes no money. What does he deserve? Damn right she's losing confidence in her job because someone who CAN be there at all hours and at the drop of a coin is on the fast track to partnership. If I was raising a child and my ex didn't work and someone was aiming for my job, I'd reluctantly give up story time, too. If that makes me a bad person, so be it. I know the extra lengths to which people go when circumstances dictate. I've been there.

You're right. We live in different worlds.

When a man has to skip a school commitment for a job, it's accepted. When a woman does it, she's an animal and obviously doesn't want her children. Imagine if Dan was an attorney and providing for the children. An important meeting comes up and he has to choose between making money to support his family or going to story time. I won't believe you if you say you expect him to choose story time. A home, food and clothes for the kids will always take precedence. Are they lucky to live in their capacity? Sure. But that's the job Lyla is good at doing; becoming an ADA will hardly allow her the luxury of story time, but will cost her the home and the school her kids attend. Reality is people who work cannot attend all of the festivities. I don't think my father spent one day at my school. His job wouldn't allow it. These days having one parent to be there is a luxury. Nothing about Lyla's speech was entitled, but instead was from a woman pained to be alone in providing for her kids while her "artistic" husband thinks himself above a job not according to his status as the Mr. Upcoming Young Chef 2008 or whatever. Watch the movie Chef and let me know if you look at him in the same light.

Darn it! I wanted to add Bash but when it came down to making the list, I left him off. Why aren't you tossing in suggestions to add to these Best of slideshows?

I thought she said she has to pick up her kid, leaving the gender ambiguous. If she said son, it could have been Noah's younger son.

Although a lot were nominated, it's not a death count, it's an exit list. Unfortunately, most series have chosen to kill off any character who leaves. Yang definitely deserves to be on the list.

The Best of 2014: Character Exit

I would argue the character reactions to Beth and Sweets were more noteworthy than their actual exits. We haven't even seen the impact of Beth fully, and Sweets being killed wasn't accepted well by anyone. Killing him because the actor wanted to take a break was hard to take, kind of ending it's chances for best list.

I'm writing this on my iPad and cannot see half of what I'm writing, so excuse the typos. People get married with romantic and sexual notions as laid before them in entertainment. Unfortunately, in movies and on TV we often only see the beginning of a relationship. We rarely see how they end... How people have to fight to keep their love alive. I think since people have these fale notions of what love is going into it and later into the relationship, poor decisions are made on either end.
