Then again, I guess it depends on what sort of thing you're into.
Well, I have seen them all, and right up until the point, where our "good-guy vampire" goes in like, jesus-mode and shit, I thought it were pretty good. But all this religion-crap.. I mean, come on.. Religious vampires? No fucking way that shit will hold up. Not with me, anyways...

Oh yeah, I remember someone trying to convince me Revolution was good. Even their best description of it was horrid.

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

It's all subjective but, I like Revolution. It's not the best series I've ever seen, but definitely doesn't deserve to be lumped in with shows like True Blood.


Re-watched firefly this past week. Doesn't make sense how such an amazing show like that gets 14 episodes and a movie. That's what good tv should be like. Perfect cast, awesome plot, great dialogue. Such a shame..


Edit: Anybody watch Castle? Is that any good?

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

I watch Castle and enjoy it very much. As for Firefly, it held a lot of promise. But it was expensive to produce and joss and fox couldn't make concessions on a few things, so joss would force them to do what he wanted. So, fox sabotaged the show.

Didn't Fox already sabotage it prior to that by airing all the episodes out of order, or is that why they did that?

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

Thats why they started airing episodes out of order. They didn't want the actual pilot to air first because they wanted viewers to see a show with a happy protagonist. Mal, in the pilot, wasn't as jolly as they originally wanted.

I'm planning to watch it really soon. I've heard some hype about it. Really just from you and my uncle- and from some other random websites, but still you two in general have tastes in the same ballpark as my own (being really general here, but it still means something), so I'm hyped for it. I also have the Sopranos on my list but I'll see if/how I can make time for it, fuckin' college.

True Blood is decent for me. It's not really terrible or great. I think of it like I think of Naruto before the timeskip: Entertaining enough when first reading/watching it. But it'll most likely not get any rereads/rewatches from me (despite the fact that I've reread Naruto before- but that's kind of how I know True Blood's in the same boat). That includes the first season as well. What you described as good is still just "decent" for me. Just finished watching the 5th season. I still feel the same about it (Eric Northman- Viking Vamp is pretty cool, though, gives the show a little bonus).

Also Mal, did you hear about the new season of Arrested Development? = D

You shouldn't watch the Wire for explosive and fast paced story and action. It's a show which is as realistic as they come, so don't judge it from it's first episode and let the plot develop. The characters are amazing. I am sure that, by the end of first season you will be amazed by the quality and by the end of the series you will be like: "best tv show ever".

I dunno, TB's first season had more good things than bad things, so I say it's good, but I am actually in the same boat as you - it's decent. Later, the bad things start overwhelming the good by a huge margin, and thus, the fourth season was horrendous for me. Not that there weren't moronic things happening before, but at least it was entertaining enough at the time.

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

Haven't watched the Supernatural anime, but I've known about it for awhile. Think I'll watch it once the show stops airing.... so in a few years lol

True Blood is trashy. I don't hate, but I don't love.

Haven't checked out Revolution, but a friend likes it. So I may. I did watch 666 Park Avenue. It was alright. Don't think it's coming back though.

If the elephants have past lives yet are destined to always remember
It's no wonder how they scream
Like you and I they must have some temper

And I am dreaming of them on the plains
Dirtying up their beds
Watching for some sign of rain to cool their hot heads

And how dare that you send me that card when I'm doing all that I can do
You are forcing me to remember when all I want is to just forget you

If the tiger shall protect her young then tell me how did you slip by
All my instincts have failed me for once
I must have somehow slept the whole night

And I am dreaming of them with their kill
Tearing it all apart
Blood dripping from their lips and teeth sinking into heart

And how dare that you say you'll call
When you know I need some peace of mind
If you have to take sides with the animals
Won't you do it with one who is kind

And if the hawks in the trees need the dead
If you're living you don't stand a chance
For a time though you share the same bed
There are only two ends to this dance

You can flee with your wounds just in time or lie there as he feeds
Watching yourself ripped to shreds and laughing as you bleed

So for those of you falling in love keep it kind
Keep it good
Keep it right
Throw yourself in the midst of danger but keep one eye open at night
