^ It seems that we like the same shows.

Give Rome a shot.  It's only two seasons and aired on HBO several years ago.  Very good.  You can rent it on DVD.
I'll have to check it out....also everyone has been trying to get me on game of Thrones, but we don't have HBO. I'll try to catch up on that.

I have "really" gotten into this show. I am just starting season 3, and it is now firmly entrenched on my very short "drop whatever I'm doing to watch it" list. Favorite character to this point has to be Bobby Singer. Just a good ol' no-nonsense redneck demon hunter...

Good deal!

And hell yes on Bobby. He's become just as important to the show as the main idjits. Awesome character.

I just got to the episode where Sam decapitates Gordon the Hunter-turned=Vampire with the razor wire... My "only" complaint to this point is regarding all of the wounds that Sam and Dean incur. I've seen their faces get sliced up, and sliced deep, but no scars, not a mark on them in the next episode. Did I miss an episode where they found some sort of magic heal-all Hudu mojo or something?

I love Supernatural, but Game of Thrones is easily the greatest show on TV. Bar None... It's the only reason I signed up for HBO. It deserves every accolade it has received in the first 2 seasons, and from what I am hearing, season 3 is shaping up to be pretty awesome as well.

March 31st for the season premiere...I can't wait!

Ha! I said the same thing. There is a theory, but it only applies later in the series. As for earlier, the world may never know ...  Cheesy

Out-fucking-standing episode... Lots of shit happening, and some good plot trails for the next few episodes.

Lil_B mentioned it at the start of this thread, but I just started watching Face Off, and think I may have finally found a reality TV show that I can enjoy. 

In other equally-likely news, Hell has frozen over, the Florida Marlins have the highest payroll in baseball and nice guys everywhere are finishing first.

I loved last night episode of the Walking dead...

I've gotten into the Incredible Dr. Pol,it's like all creatures great and small,in Michigan,rather than the English country side.. Cheesy

I really like Face off,and Like Dave Gray mentioned at one time about the show.You don't have to know anything about it find it pretty cool.

My personal thoughts on this season of face off,they did a serious disservice,in the horrible casting of women...they all sucked this year.For me every season (so far) there are a few people that make you wonder what did you do to make it on the show,because the work on the show sucks...This year most of them were all the women.

I Really want to see Orphan Black after the premiere episode of Doctor Who March 30th....

I've been watching House of Cards on Netflix.  (It's only on Netflix...not a network show.)  It's extremely well done.  It's a little heavy on the "inside politics" (normally, I like shows that have a mix of humor, drama, etc.)   It's also a show that has very few likeable characters.  I'm OK with that, but I think it would turn off a lot of casual viewers.

Interesting thing about this show: It was created based off of metrics.  Netflix looked at their ratings and found that their viewers like 1) movies starring Kevin Spacey, 2) movies directed by David Fincher, and 3) Political Dramas.  So, they made a political drama starring Kevin Spacey, directed by David Fincher.  True Story.

Yeah, last night's Walking Dead episode was pretty damned cool.

Comments that contain spoilers (if you haven't seen last night's episode):

* I was so freakin' happy to see that Morgan is back, but disappointed that he's lost his mind. Hopefully he gets his head back together and can become a regular. I just dig Lennie James as an actor.

* Was I imagining things, or did it seem like there was a little spark there between Rick and Michonne?

* I'm still not sure I understand how the whole "cut their arms off, block the jaw, and walkers become walker repellant."

This smell of rotting walker is the repellant.  (like when Rick & Glen covered themselves in zombie guts in season 1 to escape Atlanta)  Getting rid of the arms and teeth is just protection for person giving the walker some walkies.  Michonne also found out that her walkers became much more docile after a while with their "modifications."

^^^ I understand "the reason the story is giving" for it, but it just doesn't make sense to me. By that principle, any time that a normal person is around more than one walker, the walkers wouldn't be able to notice them, which hasn't been true during situations where there was a large group of walkers attacking the normals. Likewise, we've seen multiple situations where sight and sound alerted the walkers to the presence of a normal...

Again, as a writer, this seems like a flimsy alibi for them not attacking the person who is escorting a modified walker.

Just my $.02

Basically, I think it works best to keep them from getting your "scent" at a distance.  At closer range, the effectiveness drops off significantly.  Andrea's ruse to get into the prison was not completely unnoticed by the walkers.  She had to kill a few who caught on, which caused a few more to get alerted to her presence.  She was in real danger of getting munched outside the fence.

Slathering yourself with the guts seems to be the best way to escape close up walker danger (i.e. Michonne a few episodes back when she herself came to the prison).

On a follow-up to my earlier post about the new Syfy series, "Continuum"... The series is now 7 episodes in (#8 tonight), and the more I watch this show, the more I am enjoying it. There's just enough "time travel paradox" to make it a part of the plot, but not enough to make it the focus. Instead, it's more about the manhunt for the future-fugitives with a touch of "are the bad guys really the bad guys."
