Well I'm very happy that the Veronica Mars movie kickstarter was a success, and so was this Arrested Development documentary kickstarter. With the new AD season on Netflix coming in May, it's going to be a good time for cult TV fans.

Also I'm glad that Elementary was renewed for season 2, but I'll still say boo to CBS renewing The Good Wife. That show deserves to be axed for what a horrible season 4 they put on. Quality show, my ass.

Flotilla apology

While it's all very nice that Israel apologized to Turkey for the flotilla incident, and that Turkey apparently accepts this, I wish Israel would apologize to the Palestinians who continue to suffer daily from the Gaza blockade and the illegal settlements on their land. More useful than apologies would be to end the blockade and stop the settlements. I mean, they don't have to deal with Palestinians as equal partners in a diplomatic relationship, because the Palestinians have no state of their own, like Turkey, and are kept in a perpetual state of occupation and poverty. It's sickening.

It's good that Obama visited Israel, gave a humanizing speech, and got an award, but I'm so jaded about there ever being peace. I hope John Kerry can do something different, or I fear there will never be a two-state solution in my lifetime.

Bad Wife

Okay that's the last straw. I'm done with The Good Wife, and I hope it gets cancelled this year. This semi-spoilery article says that they'll be continuing the love triangle for the rest of the season, and I'm sick of it. Especially the part where they say Alicia won't pick anybody, just feel guilty. What has she been doing for the past four fucking years?

They also mention that after the governor's election they'll be looking at the White House next. "As soon as they win or lose one campaign, they’re onto the next." It's bad enough that real life is like that, especially with the news media. I don't want to see campaign after campaign after campaign on this show. You can't just have Peter stay in one office and, say, work on his racial bias in promotions? No, apparently. Plus constant elections make the perfect excuse for Alicia to never divorce Peter and keep supporting his career. The Kings have repeated themselves too many times, and they never learn their lesson. It's clear nothing will fundamentally change on the show, ever.
