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.
A friend of mine recommended 666 Park Avenue to me, haven't got around to watching it yet but he knows my taste fairly well so I suspect you and I will disagree on its quality.

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

Well, as I've gotten older I've gotten less hyped about shows, especially when it comes to the first 10 to 13 episodes, so when I say alright, I do mean that I liked it well enough. I was a bit disappointed when I read that it got cancelled, mostly because the power couple was kinda hot (in an old, rich, evil kind of way...) but the protagonist pairing didn't draw me in (still attractive though lololol). And it has a Devil's Advocate feel to it, which is a pretty horrible movie that I like xD So, that's a plus and a negative? I'unno.

Just finished the first season. Pretty awesome show so far. Yo, Stringer Bell and Omar. <3 I'd put it at about Rome's level, so far, maybe a bit higher due to plot.

And you don't have to worry about me watching something for explosive action alone, action by itself is so far down on my priority list. The only time action really shines to me is if there's a special feeling or significance to it...or hint of despair or even realism to it. So yeah. If that makes sense. But thanks for the warning, since it'd totally suck if I missed out on a great show cause of something stupid like that, so good looking out.

Now, I'm not saying I don't love Rome, because it's one of my all-time favorites, but it's not my favorite show ever, so far either. I'll just list my favorites:

Game of Thrones
Boardwalk Empire
The Walking Dead
Rome

We have GoT and BE on the top, and I'm not sure which I like more, but the general core plot of GoT I like better I guess. TWD or Rome, probably Rome since it's a more complete solid package as of now (not really, though, lol, crammed-last-season-cough).

The main, worth-explaining, reason that The Wire doesn't compare to those top two right now is because so far the characters haven't been developed as much as I want them to. For example, GoT and BE have this thing where characters will just get into deep fucking conversations with each other- sometimes for seemingly no fucking reason-, and they will start telling crazy stories and shit, giving us an insight into their mind that is the best you'll ever get besides reading their mind. Both plots are pretty in depth, realistic, grounded, slow-paced, etc. Which I can immediately see The Wire shares. But so far, while the The Wire has had great character development, it hasn't been as much yet, I'd wager. In particular I'd have liked to seen some more from Stringer, Omar, and Avon, though of course I realize the plot realistically didn't always need to focus on them, especially to give the feeling that the detectives were working their way up, but still man.

Of course, it may seem like an unfair comparison, given I'm only on season 2 now and I'm on season 3 and 4 of GoT and BE respectively but even in the first seasons of GoT and BE the character development was tremendous. Still, only the first season and it's already one of my favorites.

I doubt there's much it will do to make me hate it from here on out; I got a good feel for the show, and I'm excited to watch the next season. Hoping it'll have more personal development with Avon and Stringer, especially.

Also been listening to this all day, haha:

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

Didn't watch BE, but GoT and Walking Dead are far below series such as the Wire for me. It's not even comparable. GoT is an okay adaptation, but nothing too awesome; the book overshadows it so much it isn't even funny. The Walking Dead, I dunno. The first episode the the best pilot ever (in any series), but right after that I didn't like it that much. The end of season 1 and whole of season 2 were pretty bad for me.

Rome is good. That series is another story.

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

I don't think GoT is slow, it's just very confusing for a non-book viewer and very rushed for someone who read a book. Didn't watch season 3 of Walking, but I will probably pick it up. Just didn't feel like losing my time since season 2 and even season 1 were bad.

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

Don't find GoT slow at all. Just sit there and watch to see how they'll accomplish certain things. They make some interesting choices probably in terms to make some things a little more obvious. I've written extensively about this already so I won't again.

Also, what the hell are they doing with Stannis? He's WAY too likeable.

Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans

I watched GoT twice just to clear out the characters miss, I find the slowness mainly in season 2 which considered quite eventless except for the last few eps. But season one was just perfect. Am thinking about giving the whole thing a 3rd run, because it's that damn good.

Everybody's in here talking about American/Western shows and here I am watching almost exclusively anime, aside from GoT. And Adventure Time.

Just started a Storm of Swords. (:
Definitely agree that the second season was botched in more than a few ways. Too bad.
