    Not well.
    I'm 4 episodes in and you are right about that. Takes awhile for comedies to gel, it seems.

    First Season of Downton Abbey - Okay, so I guess I just had no idea what this show was. I thought it was kind of soap opera-y but with strong undertones of class struggle, British colonialism, etc. Turns out it's the TV show equivalent of a 10 year old girl playing with her dolls in a Barbie dream-house. And it's completely irresistible. I don't think there's anything on TV that I hate to love more. Can't wait to catch up to the current season.

    Tell me more.

    I've heard about this show & I have zero idea what it's about, I get that you like it. Can you give me a little bit of back story on this?

    Just wrapped up watching all three seasons of Spartacus (again). Love this show.

    I am now back to watching "Big Love". I've already watched the first season and am now into season 2. This show is so hard to describe to anyone who hasn't seen it. All I can ever say is that it's not what you think it is and that the acting is truely some of the best acting on TV.

    I also caught the pilot episode of "Banshee" last night. I had very low expectations going in and found myself very pleasantly surprisde to be as entertained as I was. For those of you comic book fans the thing that I can sort of compare this to is the very first version of the thunderbolts.

    It's set in early 20th century Britain, right before and, later on, during/after the first World War. It follows the various ongoings in a big mansion (manor?); there's the servants and the upper class people living there. I don't think there are any serious themes. The servants have it hard, but dammit, the rich folks have feelings too! (This is seriously a line from the second season.) It's just a mash-up of will-they, won't-they schemes and romances. Couple of Game of Thrones actors on there. It's not good by any means. But it's really addicting and kind of reminds me of older, less serious Hollywood/TV. I can't tell if the writers know how silly everything is; I think they do.

    Am I the only person who actually stayed with Fringe till the end?

    Not nearly as bad as the way lost ended but once again another of the Abrams shows leaves me walking away asking was it worth my time?

    I'll say compared to Lost that yes this show at least didn't spit in my face to end but I'm not going to lie and say I walk away satisfied with the direction the show took or the way it ended.

    Don't tell me how Fringe ends. I am watching the second to last episode on Hulu right now. I work friday nights, and hulu is a week behind. So I am going to watch the finale on demand sometime this week. I statred it from the beginning and stuck around to the end.

    I stuck with it, despite my hating the time jumping, over reliance on alternate versions of stuff. I was extremely satisfied with the ending, based on the situation they set up for this season. I thought they really wrapped things up well with a nice nod to the past. I dropped Lost because I felt there were being obtuse for the sake of being obtuse. I felt like Fringe was genuinely trying. Overall, I really felt it was worth my time. I looked forward to every week, even during the slow times. I didn't feel like I got raw dogged like I did with X-files, Lost and the worst series ending ever, St. Elsewhere.
    Hey! What're you kicking me for? You want me to ask? All right, I'll ask! Ma'am, where do the high school girls hang out in this town?

    Still loving Arrow. Appearances so far by Green Arrow (of course), Deathstroke, Deadshot, and Merlyn with subtle hints at Black Canary (still not sure that it will happen).

    Best new series of the year, without a doubt. Don't forget Speedy has been there as well.

    Why must American Horror Story do this to me every year at the finale? Don't get me wrong this was a great great season but the endings always make me, well i don't know how I feel about them to tell you the truth. I never hate them but then it's kind of like I am wanting an epic closure when the writers obviously want to lighten the mood to end the season.

    Nothing wrong with that btw, it just always catches me off guard.

    If you haven't watched season two I would highly recommend it, I didn't want to watch it at first because the premise sounded idiotic to me. But much to my surprise they made it work and often times made it work like gang busters.

    You owe it to yourself if for no other reason than to see a show that actually has the Devil, Aliens, Nazi War criminals & a deadly Santa Clause all in it without it looking like some old Ed Wood movie.

    I really enjoyed AHS Season 2. In fact, after a few episodes it inspired me to check out season 1, and I'm glad I did because I liked that a lot, too.

    You mean you didn't watch AHS season 1 for the maid? Was I the only one that did that?

    I suppose I did overstate when I said I'm not digging them, but the magic's gone. They've got some of the funniest animated TV to live up to and that's just too high a bar.

    As an aside, I wish more people watched Bob's Burgers.

    I hate myself for enjoying the hell out of this show.

    I'm about halfway through season 2. It's well done and a lot of fun. The kids and I watch it, but my wife even got caught up in the Skrull invasion story arc.......

    My brother is watching it and absolutely loves it. Of course, he also likes The Following, so I don't always agree with his tastes.

    Eventually I'll probably do the free month of Netflix to see it, but I've got enough to watch as is.
