How is the sound on this one?

My Dish receiver only does stereo sound. For some Netflix series like "Daredevil" I have to switch to my Xbox 360 (Yeah I know.) in order to get the DD 5.1. For most...

I enjoyed the finale up to the end. I was quite annoyed to read that Jaime had survived. They should've let there be finality to the whole thing.

Okay.

This second season is trying to be a bit more like "Game of Thrones" with all of the political maneuvering and machinations. However, the acting and the editing are what hold things back....

You have a much greater population density in the UK. Here--aerials are considered unsightly. I put my Wingard in the attic, as I didn't want my suburban neighbors thinking I couldn't afford...

I stuck through til the end. This was the type of show that was so bad it became campy. The season finale was just as awful as the rest of the season.

We actually pay more than that for Dish. Dish is much cheaper than DirectTV on the basic packages. For the higher packages, Dish can be slightly more. They're both cheaper than most cable or U-verse...

This show was not good. I didn't mind the Jackie Chan replacement. I didn't think the Chris Tucker replacement was that funny.

I did find Wendy Malick a joy to see weekly.

I have the 250. It's not crap, but it's not great, either. I would NOT turn a 363 on its side though. If you are able to use a vertical 363 as a center, that would be the best choice.

Completely unrelated to your height/surround question--I noticed that you said you were biamping. Are you biamping from a single receiver, or do you have a separate discrete amp for the biamping?

Victorian vampires can go out in the daytime. They are just slower during the day.

It's modern vampires that burst into flames in direct sunlight. :p

I found the first season very boring and very predictable. I gave it 3 out of 5 stars.

That said. I would probably watch the second season, as I found the acting to be outstanding.

The show is really popular with women. A lot of people joke that men watch "Game of Thrones," while women watch "Outlander." I enjoy both.

I don't think it's too chick-ish. The last few episodes...

Really?

I would think you would find more in Houston than Dallas or Austin. Houston's now the largest metro in TX. It's even more populous than the whole metroplex now.

I'm curious where you...

Have you watched "Outlander" or "Transparent"? I would probably add those to your list, too. I'm too behind on "Orphan Black" (too much TV) to determine if that should still remain a top 10 show. The...
