feel like giving JVDB some kind of emotionally affecting lines rather than making him some kind of weird tracey morgan dude is a bad move. too dawson. i mean he shouldn't be an 'asshole', cf the rules of attraction, ugh, but it seems sorta uninteresting for him to just be a super appealing james van der beek charisma-centre.

On this warm March day in L.A., the 35-year-old, who for six seasons played good boy Dawson Leery on the hit series Dawson's Creek, is in the midst of a brutal session of Krav Maga, a martial art employed by the Israeli army. Barefoot and rocking a sleeveless shirt that more than justifies his free admission to the gun show, Van Der Beek kicks, punches, uppercuts, and roundhouses away at his instructor, fourth-degree black belt Jarret Waldman.

tbh the portrayal isn't 100% unflattering (shocker) but the degree of self-absorption given what he's been doing lately is kind of hilarious, esp. as a netizen who saw his series of anigifs and someone who cracked up at his blockbuster appearance in a Ke$ha video

it will probably build them a big viewership (at least for a while) w/ all the ppl who grew up with dawson. and it's a decent gag at first. i just have serious doubts about their ability to turn him into something that's not just one-note.

the weird thing about the van der beek premise is that dawsons creek was never that popular a show

i don't think its so much Dawson's Creek that drives the premise, as much as "lol james van der beek" and him being a B-level actor already unafraid to make fun of himself

Not sold after watching the first two eps. (Pilot was kind of funny.) It's better than 2 Broke Girls but what isn't? I don't think the premise has much lasting power in it. There really doesn't seem to be much for June in this 'relationship'. I never watched Dawson's Creek, mind, so maybe I'm missing something?

i have no idea how they are going to milk 6 episodes out of this, let alone a whole season, especially when p much the entire conceit of the show gets blown in the pilot. this kinda felt like a case of, "oh shit our wild ass pitch actually got picked up, what the fuck are we going to do now?"

i guess i'd be more kind if i didn't find 75% of the jokes terrible (to be fair, the other 25% were hilarious). these meta Dawson jokes weren't really that funny the first time Kevin Smith used them in Jay & Silent Bob and much less so in 2012.

these network shows that can't get away with edgy titles with swear words in them but keep desperately hanging onto half-assed versions of them like "bleep my dad says" are just sad imo. they should've just called this show Apartment 23, which is probably what it'll get shortened to if it ever survives two seasons.

It was originally Don't Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23, then Apartment 23, then Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23.

The pilot of this may be a better single episode than the last episode of New Girl. New Girl is easily the better show overall though.

Yeah, like I said over in the ABC Tuesday night thread, I don't particularly care for any of the shows much (except for Happy Endings, which it's a shame you missed), but I think the majority of the actors on the shows are really decent comedic actors, and everyone seems to be having a good time. Let the kids have their fun and their laughs, eh? Why not!

not sure what to make of modern family. it's good, but seems like something you'd have to get the hang of. lot of implied relationship history.

I will continue to watch this as it was fine; actually it was reminiscent of my reaction to Happy Endings before they hit their stride, so if this finds a groove I think it will kill

I also think people are completely misreading the thesis of the show if they think the pilot blows it; a show about a woman torturing her stupid roommate would get very tired very quickly, whereas a show where the "mean girl" learns how to relate to another woman while the wide-eyed innocent shows she isn't as wide-eyed or innocent as she appears may not be "zomg ORIGINAL" but it at least has someplace to go where you aren't automatically cast in the position of despising one of the leads for either their rampant, unrelenting meanness or their mind-boggling, irritating stupidity.

Ok I really liked this ep. Managed to find myself pretty consistently surprised by the twists. The writing kept things fast paced. I found myself accidentally narrating the action outloud like a young child or something, just sort of to help myself keep up. The humor is still broad and "edgy" not at all like the character-driven stuff ilx/avclub tends to go for.

thanksgiving episode really delivered. they're walking a line between either humanizing ritter too much or just making her increasingly terrible (or just leaving her be and having the character end up one-note), but for now they're pulling it off. it's like if you built a whole show around kramer subplots.

So _Vamps_ is a really good film, and Ritter is perfect for it.

4 weeks pass...

"You from Queens"

in other news, both this and happy endings seem like their ratings are pretty bad and they could be cancelled.

looking at the previews of the 2013 season, I feel like this show was the far end of a pendulum swing now going back towards "mainstream" banality

network execs realized that they actually aired a show about self-superior urbanites interacting with a WB star and were like OMG FAMILIES FAMILIES FAMILIES
