Talkback: 'Enlisted' - 'Rear D Day'

Pete decides to embrace the suck, while Sgt. Major Cody asks for Jill's help

A busy day today means I don't have time to write about tonight's "Enlisted— notable for the guest appearance by Andy Daly as dorky dad Rodney, for being yet another out-of-order episode (Derrick says it's only been two weeks since Pete punched the colonel in Afghanistan) and for a good Jill/Sgt. Major Cody subplot — but since you guys seem to be really enjoying the show so far, I figured I'd give you a chance to discuss "Rear D Day." 

Have at it.

With ‘The After,’ ‘Bosch’ and more, Amazon crowdsources its pilots again

A more promising group of pilots than last year's batch

Last April, Amazon entered the original series business in a very novel way: by making 14 pilot episodes — six children's shows, two animated comedies and six live-action ones — available for all of its customers to watch and offer feedback on, whether through customer reviews or surveys about each show. Amazon didn't say those things — plus the number of times each show was viewed — would be the only factors for what got turned into a series and what didn't, but it seemed like a much more democratic, and sensible, approach to series development than the byzantine process most of the networks still use.

NBC pulls 'The Michael J. Fox Show' from schedule

How did what NBC thought was a sure thing not work out to this degree?

NBC was so certain that "The Michael J. Fox Show" would be a hit that the network ordered a full season worth of episodes without even making a pilot. Instead, the sitcom was such a ratings disappointment that tonight NBC quietly pulled it from the schedule, replacing it and the already-canceled "Sean Saves the World" with "Hollywood Game Night." Production had already wrapped on the season, 15 episodes have aired; it's unclear when the remaining 7 (including a "Back to the Future" reunion between Fox and Christopher Lloyd) will air, though an NBC publicist told Vulture's Joe Adalian that they were looking for a place on the schedule after April 3. It's not officially canceled, but with those numbers and the amount of money NBC spent, it's hard to imagine it returning next season.

Is it time for 'Walking Dead' to kill Rick?

As the hugely-popular zombie drama returns, its central hero remains a drag

"This isn't life!" someone complains during "The Walking Dead" mid-season premiere (Sunday at 9 p.m. on AMC), objecting — as so many characters on the zombie series have over the last three and a half seasons — to the point of continuing to exist in such a miserable, disgusting, hopeless world. If the best anyone can hope for is brief periods of subsistence punctuated by terror and the sight of your friends being eaten and transformed, why go on?

Talkback: 'How I Met Your Mother' - 'Sunrise'

Ted and Robin revisit their past, Marshall fights with ghosts, and Barney mentors two young men

Last week's "How I Met Your Mother" was at once a treat and a reminder of missed opportunities with the Mother, this year and in seasons past. "Sunrise," meanwhile, was entirely Mother-less, and another episode largely devoted to Ted struggling to let go of his feelings for Robin, with his speech to Jeanette — if he could actually take everyone's advice and let her go, "That wouldn't be love. That would be some other disposable thing that is not worth fighting for." — feeling very much like Bays and Thomas(*) rebutting the complaints about the show revisiting this territory over and over.

(*) Who, in their younger years, bore at least a passing resemblance to the actors playing Barney's two proteges. Coincidence, or design?

The question is, did you buy it? Did Ted's speech convince you, or did you roll your eyes yet again at this material, or at Ted again bickering with old flames (if not eternal ones like The Bangles song that played over the end)? Did you enjoy Marshall's ghost arguments, and did you believe the resolution of the real thing? And were you pleased or annoyed at the gift Barney gave the two young guys before he left their side?

Have at it.
