Well. That finale was just.... awful. Worst season yet. Was on the fence about coming back this year, then stuck with it because the premise was just so strange, and seemed to have promise. But the...

Amanda is more Naomi than Nicole, IMO. She could be Naomi's little sister. Nicole? Third cousin, maybe.

I was referring to audience size and awards actually won. Outside of the AFI, it hasn't really won anything. I don't think it's even been nominated for a "best drama" Emmy. I know, the Emmy's are...

Best show on TV right now, IMHO, and criminally underrated. And yes, I know 'Justified' is back too.

If I bump it up to $600, that brings the Vizio E550i-B2 into play ($598 from Dell & Best Buy). Anybody know anything about this TV? Seems to have gotten pretty good reviews for PQ (12 local dimming...

Still, it was kind of silly the way they filmed & edited it. Heck, they made it seem like Merlin just jogged down to the Swords 'R Us at the outlet mall and picked up the weekly blood-stained special...

Best 55" LCD for $500 or less? Plus cute kitty pic!

Need a new TV for the Rec Room. Will be used for exercise videos and games for the most part. Don't need 3-D, if that matters. Doesn't need to be "smart" either, as I'll have a PS3 hooked up for...

Boy, that's not a promo, that's a trailer! I'm pumped!

Seriously, this show has turned out to be a lot better than I imagined. It's really underrated, and that's a testament to how much good TV...

Yeah, this ep's plotline was preposterous even for a superhero show. And all the schmaltz! My pancreas was pumping out so much insulin to neutralize all the...

Truly a remarkable series of books, although by the third installment Robinson is getting a little wordy and the premise a little tired. Not unusual with authors who keep trying to milk a concept...

It sounds like somebody in Viacom's huge legal department was "asleep at the wheel" with regard to the EAS and when it can be used. So they did what all big corporations do when they're caught...

I was in college at the time (SW premiere) and probably went 3 times during the first couple of weeks. It was amazing!

I checked out at the beginning of the season, primarily because I just didn't have time for it -- too much other good stuff and I figured I'd catch up "when I had a chance" (fat chance). But the...

Did you see 'Stargate: Universe'? I really enjoyed that one, as it had a darker, more adult vibe than the other installments of that franchise.

Yeah, that's how I look at it. I'm looking for a "meta" opinion from a variety of reviewers and critics unless it's a movie I want to see so bad it's essentially "critic-proof" to me. If the...

Well, that's just crazy talk. '24' is the Jack Bauer Power Hour. If he's not there, nobody else will be either. Somebody slap some sense into these guys. :rolleyes:

I haven't seen the second ep yet, but I do hope it's funnier than the first. I don't think I even smiled during the entire half-hour, much less laughed (unless there was a bit with Kumail Nanjiani --...

We would have done much the same thing to him back then, I'm afraid. Heck, if you listen to some of the "arguments" about gay rights in certain circles, there are plenty of folks over here who would...
