Good TVeets

There were so many good TV tweets yesterday, they broke Good TVeets. Really, I couldn't make any of my usual methods of transporting them here work. I figured out a workaround, but it meant just pasting them strictly in chronological order, so conversations sometimes get broken up by unrelated tweets. But at least they're all there, so I declare victory. Read from the bottom up after the jump.

Dear @tompapa, When I said you should get divorced to build Marriage Ref buzz, I was kidding. That's crazy. A trial separation should do.

Dan Harmon kept threatening to Oprah us, but he's too polite or nice to fully commit to the Full Oprah.
danieltwalters Daniel Walters
I think it's a good thing that Dan Harmon watches so much TV. It's important for TV writers to be TV fans. Otherwise you get Tim Kring.

"It sounds like a bad idea, to caress the fourth wall." Dan Harmon is going to break the Oprah record and make us all uncomfortable, too.

Over/under on critic faintings at the #Community TCA panel: 5. I'll take the over.

Wow. Harry's Law really did suck the life out of the room. Way too much dead air in this panel so far.
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
Of all the showrunners who have threatened to eclipse the#oprahfilibuster's length, I believe @danharmon is the one capable of doing so.

@tvoti Critics don't laugh - they jot notes saying "this is funny."

David E Kelley says his pilots often get mixed reactions of "I don't get that." It's not that we don't get it; it's that we don't like it.
HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
"We are worried," Kelley says of only having six episodes up-front. Having seen 1/3rd of that total... Yeah.

I'm sitting here, remembering how The Practice started out kinda cool and gritty, then gradually went batshit insane. #tca

One of the things I'm fascinated by is how little TV people seem to know the place I came from even EXISTS.

Kelley didn't want to make another law show but did. Shonda Rhimes didn't want another medical series but did. Should have listened.
TheTVShowGirl Maggie Furlong
I really do love Nate Corddry & hope he finds a great show that'll use his talents. That show isn't Harry's Law. #tca
danielletbd Danielle Turchiano
(cont) Not everyone will agree, let alone "get it" because not everyone will be high while watching.
danielletbd Danielle Turchiano
I feel like David E Kelley is one of those writers who gets really high before working on a script and then thinks his sh*t is brilliant.
HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
David E. Kelley keeps describing a nuanced, interesting show that isn't "Harry's Law." #confused
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
David E. Kelley, there IS room for shows like that. THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM. IT IS ABOUT A LAWYER IN A SHOE STORE. #tca

NBC's "Harry's Law" about "class war," according to David E. Kelley, who also sees symbolism in women's shoes. Really. #tca

Did David E. Kelley just mention the Patriots? AWFUL. All, if you see a girl flipping over the table and storming out, it's just me.

David E. Kelley lists being able to say "asshole" as a benefit of being on NBC instead of Fox. #tca #okthen

#HarrysLaw: a terrible show with a phenomenal cast. In front of me now: Nate Corddry, Kathy Bates, Brittany Snow, Aml Ameen, Chris McDonald

If you don't eat your "Harry's Law," you can't have any "Community"! How can you have any "Community" if you don't eat your "Harry's Law"?
