Suggestion Box


Got a suggestion for us? Is there a show you think we should review, or possibly just one you think we should be watching? Do you have a general question for any of us? Do you want to give us some feedback?

This is the place. Post your comment, and we'll read it.

(Our previous suggestion box got a little full; this is Suggestion Box 2.0.)

Hi!

I absolutely love your site and reviews, especially on the Tudors.
My question, is to why the reviews for the Tudors stop at season 1? Do you simply not have enough time, or did you completely stop? If that is the case, why? and if not, when are you planning on reviewing the last 3 seasons? I would love for it to be reviewed.

Keep up the good work! :-)

sunbunny said...

Hey Anon! Definitely planning to review the rest of the series. I'm planning on starting season two reviews in a few weeks. I just ran out of time earlier this year. So much TV, so little time...

Glad you're enjoying the site! :)

Anonymous said...

Haha, i'm so happy to hear this, I will look forward to it :-)

And thanks for such a quick answer!

pucklady said...

One of the best little shows on tv right now is Continuum. I wish someone here would review it.

Billie Doux said...

Good suggestion, pucklady. I just put it on our 'want' list.

Sooze said...

pucklady, agreed. Currently watching S2, really enjoying it.

LaureMack said...

Is anyone planning on reviewing Witches of East End? It seems like it's going to be a fun series!
Watching tv just isn't the same without a doux review...

Billie Doux said...

LaureMack, I love Witches of East End, too. Maybe it's time to put it on our "want" list.

Hi, love your site. I watched rookie blue over the summer and their season 4 was absolutely amazing! It turned out to be more than just a summer distraction mostly because they focused so much on character development. Would be wonderful if someone started reviewing it!

lisam said...

Can someone review Galaxy Quest for the site? It seems like a movie that should've been reviewed a lot time again.

kthxbye said...

Hi guys! Been enjoying your reviews while marathon watching quite a few shows now. For shows that I tend to rewatch, this is definitely the place I'll end up for the most quality consistent reviews.

I love the format: not too long, not too short, some great insights (although the early Fringe reviews contained a bit too much summarizing for my taste), quotes, trivia, and of course the comments!

Recently, I've been enjoying HBO's The Leftovers. Josie did a review of the pilot and a short analysis of the third episode, but no steady reviewing is going on!
Sure, the show had a difficult start (mysteries, character building), but since then has picked up the pace and it is the only weekly show I'm watching now. The gloomy, mysterious vibe keeps me coming back.

Josie: maybe you're working on the reviews of all the episodes at the moment? One can only hope ;)

Josie Kafka said...

Hi Kthxbye,

I won't be reviewing The Leftovers. I haven't officially quit it, but I've been letting the episodes pile up on my DVR. I don't think it's the show for me.

tripper said...

So I've been shuffling around here and I was curious, wondering... No 'Good Wife'? Don't like it?

Josie Kafka said...

Tripper, quite a few of us watch The Good Wife, but our reviewing schedule is very full, and that's a lot of episode to catch up on!

Raya said...

Not really a suggestion, but I just noticed that Agent Carter wasn't listed in the "All TV Shows" page.

Billie Doux said...

Thanks for letting me know, Raya -- it's fixed.

Your search box is broken: I can't find your reviews for Charmed! Surely, someone likes Michael Samuelle would not have missed the superior Cole?? So! Where are the reviews??

Billie Doux said...

Anon, you're correct that there are no Charmed reviews here, and there probably should be. But our contributing writer Panda is working his way through Charmed on his own site, Panda-TV. He's not done yet, but he's completed reviews of most of the series.

Anonymous said...

Thanks Billie. I would have preferred to read YOUR take on Cole. I will check out his site and hope he's gay or else his Cole reviews won't be half as fun! ;)

Love the reviews on this site so I'm hoping someone will maybe be writing reviews of Sense8 soon?

Billie Doux said...

Anonymous, so far, no one has volunteered. And I'm almost afraid to admit I haven't tried Sense8 yet. I promise I will try the first episode tonight!

The reviews that should be here but aren't for some crazy reason.

Band of Brothers
The Blacklist
Black Sails
The Good Wife
Shameless (US)
Vikings

Hi guys! Is anyone planning on reviewing UnREAL? It's really well written and generally spectacular :D

Billie Doux said...

Anonymous, unREAL isn't on the list right now, but it could be in the future. Honestly, there's a lot of shows we'd love to do but we don't have enough writers!

Anonymous said...

Any plans on reviewing Mr. Robot? Definitely my favorite new show this year and would love to see your take on it!

Josie Kafka said...

Reviews are pending, Anonymous!

Freeman said...

Alright guys, I've given you some time. Shows have ended and been cancelled, but one show has continued to scrape by, that plucky little soul, Grimm. You've gotta give it another chance. I'll admit. he first half of season one is kinda eh, but I'm telling you it finds its groove and really picks up the pace. And I mean come on, the dude who makes it worked on both Buffy AND Angel. That's like your bread and butter! Amy Acker is in an episode! At least one of the actors calls the group The Scoobies! Do you see what I'm getting at here? If you like Buffy, you'll like Grimm. Charming characters, interesting mythology, exciting action. Strong independent women that don't need no man is pretty much a staple of the series from the get go as well.

TL;DR - Watch Grimm, it'll surprise you.

Billie Doux said...

Thanks, Freeman. I did watch Grimm for awhile. So many shows, so little time, not enough writers!

Anonymous said...

Anyone planning on reviewing 'Rick and Morty' and 'You're the worst'? Very smart shows.

Billie Doux said...

I haven't heard of either show, Anonymous, so probably not. But you never can tell.

TJ said...

I see that London Spy is coming on BBC America now.

I watched this a couple of weeks ago, and I think it was the best thing that came out of 2015.

If you like your spy-ish things to be James Bond-ish and full of action - this is NOT the show for you.

If you like a minimalistic, character driven, fantastic, wonderful and frustrating show - this is it!

Any chance that the Agents of Billiedoux would pick this up? I would love to see this series reviewed here.

PS. The British reviews seem to have been very positive at the time, but a few chopped the series to bits. Here in Sweden, after one episode aired, it's the watercooler show for the week (and probably for the next four weeks).


Mallena said...

Yes, I am sitting here all day watching TV and reading and posting on your site. I know you guys are very busy, but what about reviewing The Magicians?? It's pretty good, Sara Gamble is writer and producer, and I just saw Marin (The born again identity) on the show. Also, 12 monkeys was very good and would be fun to review. Love the Syfy channel and CW. Network television is really falling behind in quality to cable and streaming with the exception of the CW. I have been thinking of submitting a review of Farscape where you too busy folks have left off. It would cut into my reading time, but John and Aeryn do not deserve to be left hanging at the end of a three parter. I'll see if I can find the time.

Billie Doux said...

Thanks, TJ and Mallena. I've been feeling badly about the Suggestion Box lately because we've lost a few writers recently, and the rest of us are overcommitted. Taking on more shows is a bit of a challenge right now. Although I'm always happy to know what our readers think would be a good fit for the site. I can't tell you how many shows I've tried because someone posted a comment.

We're always looking for writers, Mallena. If you feel at all inclined, here's our "do you want to write for us" page:

I was wondering if you could review Supergirl?

Billie Doux said...

Anonymous asks, "I was wondering if you could review Supergirl?"

If it gets a second season, and it probably will, possibly. It's our sort of show, and it's already on our "want" list. We just need more writers!

Mallena said...

Is the recent comments not working, or is it just me? It just says to get a widget. Sad, I like to see who is commenting on what.

Billie Doux said...

Thanks, Mallena. It's not you -- it just stopped working. Last time this happened, I found a nice replacement. I wasn't as lucky this time. The only one I found to replace it isn't customizable. It only shows five comments, and the text it includes is way too long and might spoil our readers. (We got complaints about that.) I'll keep looking for another recent comments widget that works.

Mallena said...

Thank you, Billie. We gotta have our comment poetry.

Marianna said...

Is it possible to show in the recent comments list what shows/episodes the comments are about like before? I don't know if any of them are about shows that I follow so I end up not clicking on any of them.

Billie Doux said...

Marianna, I'm sure there's a way, but I don't know how. The old comments widget stopped working, and this one was the only one I could find to replace it. I'll keep looking for a better one. :)

And btw, thanks so much for your comments. I always enjoy reading them.

Billie Doux said...

I found a "recent comments" widget that works!

Mallena said...

Billie, have you thought about using Disqus? It makes it easy to edit posts and reply to other's comments. I also like the way it notifies you when someone has responded. It's also nice to be able to like someone's post without having to take time to write anything. You do have a great website, I wish more people knew about it.

Billie Doux said...

Thanks so much for thinking about improvements to Doux, Mallena. I promise I'll look into it. Honestly, though, any sort of major change to the site has issues because it's such an old site and there are so many thousands of posts and comments.

Nora said...

Hi Billie,
I just started this show yesterday, and immediately thought you'd like it! Have you checked out the Night Manager with Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston, its brilliant!

Billie Doux said...

Thanks, Nora. I haven't seen it yet but I've been thinking of giving it a try.

TJ said...

Hi all you BillieDoux-reviewers!

I think I am now a 10 year fan or something...Has this site been up that long? Or have I been time-travelling back and forth so it seems longer to me? Well, I luv you guys.

I know you have lots of shows to review and there is little time for additions, but here is a couple of shows I'm loving right now...and I'd love to see some reviews here on Billiedoux.

Travelers - This time-traveling sci fi show is something else and very refreshing. There's no high tech time traveling machines here - there's just people from the future. I always liked Eric McCormack (loved Perception!) and I guess he is very involved in the whole production. Lots of great actors here and an interesting take on time-traveling.

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency - BBC America is doing something different here (or are they?). The whole show is so OTT, at first I didn't know what to make of it. Well, a couple of episodes in and I was hooked. And this is the first time I didn't see Elijah Wood as Frodo, he is outstanding here. Don't know about the lead actor though, who seems to be a caricature of Doctor Who, and have this sense of humor I think only English people appreciate. But all in all it's crazy, a lot of things going on, and lots of fun.

Eyewitness - This might not be the typical BillieDoux show (or is it?!?). All I know is that it is captivating, Julianne Nicholson is brilliant, the teenage boys are good too, and the story keeps me locked in. I think I would describe it as a mixture of Fargo/Banshee/Longmire - and somewhere inbetween comes Eyewitness. Lovin' it.

Cheers for another 10 years of BillieDoux exquisite reviews!:)



Nonei said...

I haven't seen the other shows mentioned recently here in suggestions, but I will second the request for Dirk Gently despite knowing you all are booked up... I have never read the books by Douglas Adams (although I heard that the show is quite a bit different), but so far have found it a very enjoyable and unusual show where nothing at first is what it seems, but the show doesn't rely only on that.
It is spread a little thin with three (or more?) separate plot lines currently, but all of the actors are very good at portraying underlying emotions and character development and I haven't felt more lost than I'm supposed to at this point...

Billie Doux said...

Hi, TJ:

Thanks so very much for your lovely comment. I recognize your name -- you've posted comments on and off. Unless someone else named TJ has been posting comments. :) It's been twelve years, if you can believe it. I promise to check out the three shows you mentioned. I haven't heard of them, so I suspect they're British.

Hi, Nonei! Thanks for the back up recommendation. And especially for all of your entries in the Comment Poetry post. Every time someone posts a new Comment Poetry, I laugh out loud.

Nonei said...

Hey Billie, thanks :) They make me laugh too
To comment on TJ's statement of the character Dirk Gently seeming like a caricature of Doctor Who - he does seem pretty similar to Matt Smith's 12 in the sense of the charging ahead childish enthusiasm and confidence everything will fall into place (albeit much more clueless in some ways), and also with somewhat of a deeper something going on as the show progresses... You get the sense sometimes that he knows more than he's letting on, but other times that nope, he really doesn't.
I really enjoy the humor in the show but, then again, despite being an American with only one great great great great grandparent from Britain and the rest a various mixture of wanderers, I have always enjoyed quirky, weird, sometimes slow to the payoff (while nothing makes sense) British humor.

Mallena said...

Dirk Gently is a good show, though I have no clue what is going on. I love the assassin lady; she reminds me of Helena from Orphan Black.

TJ said...

Wow, 12 years! Before that I followed you on TV Toom (? was that the name?)

Dirk Gently is a Netflix/BBC America production.
Travelers is Canadian on Showcase/Netflix
Eyewitness is on USA Network

Yes, there's a lot of hilarious stuff going on in Dirk Gently. The crazy assassin lady, bald Hush-like Gentlemen, a stray dog, soul-sucking hooligans, and everyone is looking for a kitten!:)

Not to mention the murders in a hotel room with injuries consistent with hammerhead shark bites
