    Yea, that was a painful episode in more ways then one. Still I enjoyed it for what it was. I think it was around that episode that I realized Jesse Pinkman needed to die for the show to get good again. I kept hoping one of those machines would collapse on him or he'd stupidly put something toxic in his mouth.

    I didn't think they show became less good to be honest but the going back and forth off jesse and walt was a bit frustrating.

    Final episode of Walking Dead. Watching the team get perfect headshots from moving cars in a battle that was over in the first 15 minutes. Once again the team are as proficient or stupid as the plot needs them to be. Sometimes they didn't even bother looking where their gun was pointed before firing, and despite being awesome, Herschel is rockin' that infinite ammo cheat.

    Also, a helicopter just happens to lead a horde of zombies in the direction of the farm, and this horde just happens to be passing by as a gun is fired, and the group just happens to flee in the direction of the prison. We're one coincidence away from a Tony Jaa movie.

    What about that Hersels Mass Effect gun of infinite bullets, that was weird.

    That's what makes drama. If things don't happen to incite the characters to action, you're watching a bunch of people repairing fences and washing clothes.

    But yeah, the infinite shotgun was a bit much.

    Watching Dirk Gently, seen two episodes so far. Thought Stephen Mangan was great in Green Wing so I gave it a go. Not sure if I like it yet.

    I like it its not Douglas Adams level of good and probably has nothing to do with the book but for what it is its quite enjoyable in its own way.

    Thanks for the heads up. I wasn't aware this was out yet. Huge Avatar fan after Netflix suggested this might be something I might be interested in even though I never gave it much thought before. Devoured the entire series in about a week and was hungry for more.

    I can't believe they teased us like that about the fate of Zuko's mom in that first episode.

    Having been a big fan since the pilot aired, I was somewhat disappointed in the ending of the fourth series of Being Human, yet I feel compelled neither to furiously demand a better ending from the BBC, nor to complain to the relevant oversight authorities. Am I doing it wrong?

    hey :)
    i watch Revenge TV series
    it REMOTELY reminds The Count of Monte Cristo.
    I like it because it differs from other tv shows.
    i also watch House M. D.

    Indeed.

    I really wish that Darabont was still on board as he kept the ludicrous excesses of Kirkmans plotting in check. Unfortunately it seems that without Darabont's ability to ground things not only are they now hell bent on following through with the insanity of the Prison next season rather (cue more melodrama) than going their own direction, but they've also introduced Michonne with her always sharp, cuts through everything Katana (a great case of the 'fantasy' overwriting the reality). /facepalm

    I just finished watching the first season of American Horror Story, and it was sort of okay, I guess. The last episode was just awful though, and if people are tempted to watch the show I'd suggest just ending at episode 11. Episode 12 is just Beetlejuice without Tim Burton.

    Drama is created from characters having to overcome plausible obstacles. When they shove Glenn down a zombie-infested well and tie the supporting rope to a rusty old faucet instead of the caravan, drama is greatly overshadowed by sheer disbelief. Actually, I'm still not clear why they went down there in the first place.

    What about when Rick's boy stands behind a deer at the exact moment it gets shot? They can only play the major coincidence card once before writers start looking like amateur Dungeon Masters, totally reliant on random encounters shaking up their monotonous questline because their dismal attention span couldn't think up believable drama. Their entire deck of cards is filled with nothing but jokers. How about the zombies teleporting in behind them on the highway?

    Michonne sounds like a great character, but she simply doesn't belong in the world this show has established. If the show adhered more closely to it's comic book origins from the beginning, my eyes would remain in their forward position.

    I'm not sure if its such a bad thing Darabont is gone. Did you see that proposal for the first episodes in series 2? Briefly summarised this would have abandoned 'the group' and followed a squad of national guardsmen as they fought their way out of the middle of Atlanta, crossing over with Dale, Andrea et al as they went - ultimately ending with the last survivor bitten and trapped in a tank.... dying and then eventually providing Rick Grimes with a second handgun, a safe shelter and a hand grenade.

    If that was even briefly entertained by Darabont then maybe he's not the voice of sanity we hope.

    Why not? Sounds like a great opportunity for them to infill some of the characters from series before Rick met them, plus undoubtedly give a bit more of an insight into the wider nature of the virus through military broadcasts, etc. As it stands they've now gone with retconning the guy at the CDC discreetly telling Rick that Laurie was pregnant to telling him that everyone in fact carries the virus (in which case he'd of known to shoot Shane in the head then and there).

    Reducing the cast to bit characters for the first few episodes of the second series after only just introducing them in the first? Nah. But the main objection is feasibility, they would have had to stay on the farm for 3 more seasons to balance out the cost of what was originally proposed. I also think that military broadcasts about the wider nature of the virus are things better left out of TWD, much like CDC scientists and their explosive laboratories.

    Its odd how much people are making of the fact that Rick didn't shoot shane in the head immediately, I thought it was always a case of putting the rising to the test + also dealing with gutting your best friend + then seeing your son point a gun at you 5 seconds later. But it was always 50/50 with me what Jenner told Rick - though I do think that one is slightly more plausible than the other from the mentalist determined to take everyone with him, I disagree it was a retcon.

    Finished watching How I Met Your Mother Season 1 and I can already see there going to have a problem with the Ted characer: he is one of these mentally ill people who wants perfection and thinks every girl he comes across is the one and is horrible. In fact Ted is a really douchy character sometimes and its painful to watch the more dramay elements because of that fact. The saving grace is that despite that its quite funny and there all really good characters in there own way.

    I was about to stop watching, too much drama in Season 2. But something in the last episode of S2 made me go "OMFG YES", then I decided I love the show again.
    Like every man of sense and good feeling, I abominate work.
