Yes... Excellent.

Even just talking about this show has got me watching it again. It's crazy how something I've seen so many times can still make me laugh so hard. I'm even still seeing sight gags and intentional errors that I never noticed before, it's incredible.

And beyond the incredible amount of attention to detail that goes into making every aspect of it deliberately awful, it's got some of the most quotable dialogue I've ever heard. I just... really love this show.

I have absolutely fallen in love with this show. It is really absolutely genius in how bad it is. This sounds completely bizarre, but I feel like you can almost see... anti-film technique? As if every moment of it recognises what it should be doing, and chooses to do the exact opposite. It couples nicely with how fantastically bizarre all of the plots are.

My new favourite thing in human history is Dean Learner's acting. Dr. Sanchez sums it up really nicely when he points out that he just completely fails to interact with any of the other actors. "He said, I'll always remember this, that he didn't want an act, he wanted the truth." :')

It took me way longer than it should have to watch because I had to stop near-constantly for laughing breaks in some episodes.

I know, it's incredible. They aren't just doing things wrong, they're doing every single thing wrong in such a deliberately precise way that you know they knew what they were doing.

I've heard that NASA apparently tests their engineers by making them watch Armageddon and counting how many science errors they can point out. I feel like you could do the same thing with film students and this show.

My new favourite thing in human history is Dean Learner's acting. Dr. Sanchez sums it up really nicely when he points out that he just completely fails to interact with any of the other actors. "He said, I'll always remember this, that he didn't want an act, he wanted the truth." :')
"I have not acted since. Some would say I didn't act during, but um... Those would be unkind people. I did my best."

I really like how the acting isn't just bad, but everyone has a different style of bad acting. Garth's overwrought self-importance, Todd being a huge ham and the fact that half his dialogue is poorly dubbed... Of course, Dean definitely stands out the most in that regard. The contrast between the way Thornton Reed is written and Dean's noticeable discomfort just makes it even funnier.

It took me way longer than it should have to watch because I had to stop near-constantly for laughing breaks in some episodes.
I also find this show difficult to binge because after a while my face hurts from laughing so much.

Oh my god don't even get me started on how the season with the interns of scrubs was terrible. Idk if you mean the second-to-last season or the med school one, but both were awful. At least the second-to-last season had a really good finale. But that was p much the only redeeming quality.

Right?! It's an amazing show. The end of the series is pretty emotional though :'c

I have not seen Fringe or Teen Wolf, but one of the guys on Teen Wolf (Colton Haynes) is in one of my favorite shows Arrow :3
