Too bad it wasn't in HD though...

LOVED The Wire!
That show had so many layers to it! Excellent writing!

I would love to get into game of thrones, I just cannot. I had the same problem with Dexter, but finally the more and more I watched Dexter, it now is the best show ever. I will have to give it somemore time I guess. I am so looking forward to fall for the new seasons of Dexter and Homeland!!

I felt like that about the first season of The Wire. I was trying so hard to like it but I just thought it was ok. I stuck it out though and I was hooked a couple of episodes into season 2. I went back and re-watched season 1 and loved it. My absolute favorite though is season 3. BRILLIANT.

I don't know why I stuck it out with the first season that first time through... it was like I knew I was watching something great even if I wasn't hooked yet.

The success of The Wire was mostly contributed to the authenticity of it's screen play, which was created by it's executive producer David Simon, a former Baltimore Sun police reporter. Even the former Mayor of Baltimore had a role in the show, both as a consultant and as an actor.

Wow... I didn't know the Mayor was actually on the show!
I would love to know what eventually happened to some of those characters. In particular the two kids who were childhood friends but ended up taking two entirely different paths when they got older. And of course, F'n McNulty....

Same with Dexter for me. A bunch of people I know kept telling me how great Dexter was this past year, I just kept hearing how it was the greatest show ever. I watched 5 episodes of season 1 Showtime ondemand and really nothing and then on the 6th it hit me, I was hooked. My wife and I watched 6 seasons ondemand over a few months, now were jonsen for season 7. Homeland was an instant success for me, I was hooked from the first 20 minutes. I don't know which show I love more!

I was into Boardwalk Empire, but I lost touch with it. I am going to have to catch up with it. One of the reasons I was into Boardwalk is because I live 40 minutes from AC. It has been pretty cool to watch some of the history of AC, whether or not how true any of it is. As for the Sopranos, oddly enough another show set in NJ

Watched haywire last night...yikes. Hopefully I'm not alone here but i thought that movie was terrible. The sound mix wasn't great and it had very little lfe. Big disappointment.

I believe Boss on Starz is right up there with the best. Kelsey Grammer's acting is Oscar material and the supporting actors aren't too shabby either. Character development is top notch!

The discussions on tv series sounds like half a dozen women sitting around a table sipping lattes all cackling away at once.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
the explosion at the Kremlin was pretty awesome and reminds me of the war of the worlds tri-pods emerging type of bass. the submarine ICMB launch when the missile is coming out of the water had some pretty sick bass also

I thought the best one was when the prison floor came apart. Anyone know how deep that went?

Gonna go see Avengers at the new IMAX in town. Will report my findings. Too bad there's not a spectrum lab like App on iPhone, or I would analyze it...to see if this IMAX has any ass to it, and to see if this film will get the 'Thor' or 'The Incredible Hulk' treatment, sound-wise....

Anyone know if the same mixing team that did any of the other Marvel movies is doing this one?

Just please no Immortals clipping insanity moments...

Be careful. Theatres are particularly diligent about recording devices during opening week. Not that analyzing the sound would be considered recording, but I wouldn't want to have to explain that to an usher/manager/security person while trying to enjoy the movie.

If the preview is any indication, Avengers should be bass-heavy.

I really thought MI4 was an excellent audio fest. The sounds were perfect and the bass was right, just needed to be louder. If any movie was to be played at reference this one sounds perfect for it! Did anyone get some waterfalls done on it?

Don't lose sight of the fact that level controls are designed to be adjusted. If you like a soundtrack in general but feel the bass need to be louder, feel free to kick it up a notch or two for that soundtrack. That is actually one of the beautiful things about the SMS-1. Remote control bass levels up, bass levels down, choice of custom programmed curves with their own levels, and a one button reset to your normal levels.

Watched Batman: Under The Red Hood today (found it in this thread)

Awesome bass, the lower you have usuable output, the more you'll enjoy it. It's a non stop bass fest.

Here's the chart again

I am not the one to be told this as I always will turn up the bass when needed. I was just comparing to others. Same goes for Captain America, just needed to be turned up. I watch all my movies with my LFE anywhere from 5 dBs hot to 10 dBs hot.
