#79. The High Life (1996)
Image
Episodes: 8

Ok so I have actually never watched this show but apparently no one did? There's almost no information or photos online about it. I did read an article about the show that was quite favorable, but when I look at it's ratings on imdb, tv.com etc they're not quite as favorable. I guess it'll forever be a forgotten show that I won't care about.

Another one i've never seen and it looks like ****. Ok, maybe i'm too harsh since it did run for 80 episodes but I doubt i'll ever check it out.

Yay one i've actually watched some of, and it was awful. Perhaps I should have ranked it last? It came from a British show, Americanized for HBO and it didn't work at all. Forced and awkward, about as funny as Disaster Movie.

Never been a fan and i'm not sure why i'm ranking it to begin with. Never saw a full episode but I have seen clips and it's... not funny?

HBO and cartoons don't,.. mix well. While not even their ugliest, this was such a random show. Watched a bit of it because it was supposed to be sexy and it just wasn't, or interesting. Couldn't even finish the second episode.

Another one I haven't seen and it looks very, um, amateurish. I'm the first to get on unique projects with poor production values, I do like me some Dogma 95, but this just looks really bad. Much was largely improvised but I might watch some of it because John Slattery was in it.

Haven't seen this one either and really doubt I ever will. I watched some clips and it doesn't look too bad, yet there's nothing really appealing about it either. I mean, have you seen the title?

... is by not watching this show. I had high hopes for it, but was completely out of it by episode 2. Just wasn't engaging at all.

Remake from a British show, ugh. I've just seen clips from it and find it irritating as ****. Sitcoms and HBO rarely work, especially if they're British remakes. I doubt this lasts another season.

HBO bought it in 2004 and aired 26 episode. It's a cute British series if you go for that sort of thing, I find it rather ugly too British and it's not even an HBO original.

Spin-off anthology series of Tales from the Crypt, was actually pretty entertaining but mostly bad. I didn't watch all of the 10 episodes (lul) but did watch most and it was just a bad guilty pleasure.

HBO just loooves Ricky Gervais :/ I do like him but it's too much, HBO! I haven't seen a full episode but watched clips and the acting looks good, it's about a little person mostly and it sure could be funny but meh. If I ever crave Ricky Gervis i'll always have Extras.

Eh, HBO's new LOST? It has potential and an interesting plot but the pilot blew. I'll watch a bit more before giving up on it, but i'm more interested in other shows I haven't given a fair chance.

Animation massacre continues, another Ricky Gervais show, an animated podcast where he tells funny stories of his life, and makes **** up. It's mostly improvised and then turned into an animation. Pretty original and stuff, but not for me.

It's crudeness was funny at times but the laugh track made it painful to sit through. It was also quite ugly to look at.

This show annoys me tremendously, it's been on since the dawn of time and while some of the episodes I watched were good it wasn't enough to keep me going. Also Seinfeld is overrated THERE I SAID IT.

Crude sitcom massacre continues, unlike Curb, I didn't really bother with this one and I never expected it to become such a critics favorite. I might give it another try since Danny McBride is a funny comedian but right now i'm just meh on it.

Watched several episodes because I enjoyed Tales so much and was looking for another anthology series. It wasn't... Tales. Cheaply done with mostly forgettable stories, but it wasn't all bad. Had that fun corny 80s feeling to it.

Watched the beginning of this and didn't catch my interest, felt like many other current sitcoms but with a female vice president. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is pretty great but she ain't no Tina Fey.

Pretty smart show before HBO's huge popularity, so it's largely forgotten now. The concept just wasn't that interesting and after 5 episodes I was already done with the show. Great casting though.

First miniseries to fall. I haven't actually seen it or hadn't heard of it until now, and it does look... good. But HBO has made some pretty excellent period dramas in the past and this doesn't look like it would live up to them.
