I dunno. One of my favorite moments from last season is when he threw "Eric?" off the boat.

BTW. How is it that 10,000 years of agriculture could disappear? The grounders are all hunter/gatherers....

The backstories of both women were better than the main plot so far.

Why do network sci-fi and comic book shows have to be so thin on plot? The streamers and (some of the) cable companies have way...

Anyone watch the Christmas episode? (Season 3 Episode 1)

I loved the allusions to previous episodes while maintaining a unique storyline.

When it began, I thought Peloponnesian War with Earth being Athens and Mars being Sparta. It hasn't quite played out this way yet.

No spoiler tags are necessary, as the 3rd episode aired linearly...

Kilgrave wasn't the only monster in this series. There were at least two other monsters, a certain lawyer and a certain stage mom.

I've watched 12 episodes.


Yes, Kilgrave was the villain....

I'm 4 episodes in. I think this is way better than "Daredevil." DD had way more action. However, I'm thoroughly impressed with the supporting characters. The villain is a bit weak compared to DD's...

How did this one get missed for a thread?

Anyhoo, the new season started Sunday night.

Naxa NAA-351 Outdoor high powered antenna

I'm thinking about putting one of these in my attic as they are dirt cheap ($15 at Fry's) and still do VHF and (like the Philips rabbit ears) still transmit FM.

Has anyone tried the NAA-351?

Difficult People on Hulu!

Yes, I said Hulu.

This one is visually soft even though I'm watching it in 720p via my Xbox 360. It's still soft.

There's not any action. It's heavily dialog driven so expect your center...

Power on Starz

This is another popular show I'm surprised has no following here. It averages 6 million viewers per episode (more than "Outlander").

That makes sense. They had to intensify the creep factor this season. One of the main issues critics had with the first season was that it wasn't "dreadful" enough.

For those of us a bit older (+4 yrs) it hit right in the gut. Those 40/50 decades are scary in most fields (tech/IT/marketing/PR/entertainment/broadcast journalism) not just advertising! :(
