I thought that show was over, wasn't it just like a six episode miniseries? Or was I terribly misinformed?

Shit, I guess you're right. Well there's one show I can safely say I've watched every episode for.

It was like Pawn Stars with likeable people and interesting items...

I know, I loved that show. I was honestly really hoping that I was wrong about it being a miniseries.

You must really be loving HUB then, they've got 3 out of 4 of those series on regularly.

Since most shows ended/haven't started the season for this year I'm really only watching Supernatural and Eureka right now. I have to wait until June for the new season of Falling Skies to start. After that I'll just have to wait for the fall season of The Walking Dead and... crap I don't have any other shows for the fall season. Futurama and the Simpsons aren't nearly as funny anymore and everything else I used to watch isn't doing new episodes anymore. Since I don't get Showtime normally I haven't gotten to watch Dexter since about the third season.

For the lazy people;
Shows I'm watching:
Eureka (final season this summer so that won't last long)
Supernatural
Falling Skies
The Walking Dead

Shows I have some interest in:
Dexter (don't have showtime regularly)
Lost Girl

Shows I used to watch but don't release new episodes:
That list is way to long for an 8000 character limit

I believe it's still awaiting renewal. The way they talked about it on TESD sounded like they were waiting to hear if they were getting a second season.

Honestly, just go listen to TESD. Comic Book Men is just a watered down version of it. Still good, but not as good.

Well... Big Bang Theory is one of the greatest series ever. I like that it's short and it dose not really take any time to watch it. It has great humor... never dies. My favorite character is Sheldon - genius!

I am at season 2 at the moment, but might come back to this thread to discuss more!

I saw the first two seasons. In fairness, it wasn't THAT bad. Gave up on Season 3 though. It was on Sky 1, which was a pain for me to watch and I just didn't like it enough to bother.

Anyway, I don't watch many shows on television itself, I usually wait for the boxset to be released instead.

Stuff I Watch
American Dad
Ashes To Ashes
Band Of Brothers
Black Books
Family Guy
Firefly
Gavin & Stacey
Life
Life On Mars
Mad Dogs
Malcolm In The Middle
My Name Is Earl
Only Fools And Horses
Outnumbered
Prison Break
Scubs
Shameless
Skins
Spaced
Teachers
The Big Bang Theory
The Cleveland Show
The IT Crowd
The Inbetweeners
The Mentalist
The Middle
The Walking Dead
Two And A Half Men

Stuff I Still Need To See
Blackadder
Brotherhood
Extras
Generation Kill
Lie To Me
Lie To Me
Oz
Rome
Studio 60 On The Sun Set Strip
The Office
The Pacific
The Smoking Room
The Sopranos
The Wire
Tru Calling

Right now I'm making my way through the Heroes boxsets, because I never saw the show during its original run. Currently coming towards the end of the first season and loving it at the minute. Unfortunately I've heard it goes down hill fairly quickly after the first series.

So I've watched about half of the first season of Arrested Development and I really, really like it. It's one of my new favourites.

Coincidentally, Teefury's shirt of the day was this today so I instantly bought it:

cool, I really enjoyed Breaking Bad, I had just recently caught up with it all in a week.
Walking Dead is good as always, I've been reading the comics to fill the seasonless void for now.
Games of Thrones, I have caught plenty of it, just need to rewatch some of the first season.
Archer is always funny, and has even greater cameos by some actors. Bryan Cranston being the latest one
Also, I loved Lights Out, it's a shame they had to cancel it. I was really interested with that show, shame it didn't get a lot of hype.

I am never going to read the comics. Heard they ruin and reveals stuff. Even though they have made it diffrent.

The Walking Dead is probably the most awesome series I have watched. It is like a movie and it just looks so good. That is what other series don't have.

I'm really not a fan of The Walking Dead. It's painfully slow, lacks any likeable characters, is incredibly predictable and doesn't have any particularly good acting. The concept of a zombie TV show is excellent, the execution is terrible.

What? It makes the show so much more enjoyable. I'm always thinking, "how are they going to change it next?" because the comics and show are so different from each other. I've gotten really bored of the latest comics though, so I think I'm done reading them. The last episode of the show has me really excited for next season. I think they really fucked up with season 2, keeping us on the farm that long and just making the show drag on.

i was thinking the same and i had to force myself to sit through season 2 and watch it. 90% of it was terribad - some of the worst tv i had to watch. i love the concept of the show and i'm still holding onto the thread of hope that it MIGHT turn out to be good. the season 2 finale was probably the best episode since the pilot but that's not really saying much but they at least set it up for something that could be worth watching for season 3. if not, i'm dropping it

the only shows that i've been really following are:

- breaking bad
- justified
- boardwalk empire
- dexter, unfortunately. season 6 was such a piece of shit, more so than season 5. much like with the walking dead, they made a good set up for the next season. they are FINALLY going to do something interesting, or at least it would appear that way
- game of thrones
- the talking dead
- doctor who
- sherlock
- luther

i've been meaning to watch mad men and deadwood for a long time now, eh. just haven't really had enough time to sit down and get through them.

the other thing, has anyone watched lilyhammer? i heard it was meant to be real good, the premise is basically silvio from the sopranos in norway. probably gonna watch it soon

oh, and the other other thing. the big bang theory is horrible and you should all be ashamed


hey

I do agree that in season 2, in particular, was slow. But it seems that in season 3, it's going to be better and more action (I hope).

Yeah, finding Sophia should not have made it the entire first half of that season. Hopefully it will get better once they go to the Prison, now that's worthy to have for the first 5 or so episodes.
Personally I think they should have found Sophia dead within the first 3 episodes, and stick on the barn for 1 or 2 episodes when Carl is healing. Then get kicked off by Hershel like in the comics, and show how desperate for food and shelter they are. Then go back to Hershel for one last hope of begging for him for salvation, and find it overrun with walkers and help Hershel and family escape.

Now that would have been better than staying on the damn farm looking for Sophia for so god damn long.

As you say, it seems to me much better in the comics. It also seems that they only was at the farm to make the whole production much cheaper by having the film crew at one location nearly all the time. They are also using 16mm film. An excuse for that is they want to make it more grainy. I do not see the idea with that. Sometimes I just think the picture looks awful.

Btw, do you think they might move to the city because the zombies are staring to get attracted to the good 'old country?

Ah, well that makes sense, they are on a limited budget, but still. Camera is okay, but you're right it could be a bit better.

Well, assuming they are still on the track of the comics, they did pan out to the Prison. That is where they are going to stay next for a bit. Now that is worth having the next season stay mostly at, as there's more story in the prison than on Hershel's farm.

The Governor has been cast, so season 3 should go at least that far into the comic.
