    wasn't my cup of tea, but other people swear by it... i only made it half way through the first season before i threw in the towel.. i think shows with no characters that i can empathise with will never really have a chance.
    thanks man
    ill get the 1st season and see how it goes

    Sons has far more violence, and a more interesting storyline. I like the Sopranos but I never watched it past season 3. Sons of Anarchy just added Danny Trejo and David Hasselhoff for season 4. Danny plays a drug king pin. Davey boy plays a retired porn star.

    I would recommend Sons of Anarchy(SOA or SAMCRO to fans) far and above the Sopranos. I think SOA is a lot better series than The Walking Dead so far but SOA has three seasons already under its belt.

    so i took your advice and gave SOA a twirl.... after the first couple episodes, i'm not all-in yet... its entertaining enough, but hasnt blown me away.. one of my co-workers who's really into the show told me that the second season is when it gets really out of control... and luckily, terra nova is nosediving hard in my tv rotation, so i'll probably slot it in there.. I was quite pleased to see Hellboy & Peggy Bundy in it though..

    Has anyone watched American Horror Story yet? Just watched the first episode last night... i seriously don't think i've ever seen a show that twisted and demented in my life.. movies, sure.. but never a tv show

    You need to give it time. It gets progressively better. Trust me. Season two is excellent. Season three is great too. Season four is delivering big so far too by the way. Season one is all about establishing the characters early on. It's important but I agree, a little slow at first but it didn't get to season four for nothing.

    Thumbs up to Peg too. Do you watch Modern Family? It's funny how "Al" and "Peggy" both have emerged again with hit shows around the same time.

    For most people it's probably not a big deal, but Futurama is one of my all-time favourite shows... so Peg has been around for awhile... nice to see her on camera though.... and i must say, for an old bird, still looking good

    I never watched SG1 but by chance I caught episode one of SGU and then ended up following it until it got canned. I liked it. Same thing with Battlestar Gallactica. I had no intention of getting into that one either and ended up PVRing it the whole way through. I don't watch anything live by the way. Not even football or basketball. For sports I'll let it go an hour and then I can watch the whole thing while skipping commercials and usually catch the dieing minutes live.

    SGU was awesome... lived way too short a life.. as most great shows do...

    SG-1 was campy slosh at best... but it was good mindless fun

    Excellent episode. Honestly, I can't say for sure I wouldn't try something like what Shane did if I felt I was about to die and in turn cause the boy to die as well.

    Wow that was a good one. I'm really enjoying the character development. Look at Daryl...dude is surprising me. He is turning out to be a decent dude...definitely rough around the edges, but decent.

    As for Shane's actions...like you say Apollo I can't say for sure I wouldn't do the same thing in that situation.

    ya, it's not anything that special. wiseguy was a better show of that genre. although, that is going way back I can't recall a t.v. show of that genre or at least a credible one from more recency.

    loved that scene in haloween. where, well just the entire series of events that are his demise.

    culminating in the t.v. that crushes his head.

    I just don't understand why the leg? i mean he wouldn't have had to wrestle him if he shot him in the gut or the arm and he'd still be alive for the zombies to eat.

    which I still don't beleive that if he had shot him dead that the zombies wouldn't have aten him. it's still fresh meat.

    Alright episode this week. Kind of boring compared to the rest of the series.

    ya, I was a bit dissapointed, then again every series has their bad episodes.

    Hell on Wheels didn't pick me up after either.
