    Supernatural seasons 1 through 3 were excellent. After that I'm not a fan but if you enjoy folklore then the first three seasons are a really good watch.

    I have some of Boardwalk Empire season one and plan on watching it some day. I'm off on a business trip next week so I'm sure I'll have nothing better to do at the hotel...

    I think it's gone downhill since season 3. It was a slow decline at first but this season it's been hit or miss... Kind of like last season. They've killed pretty much everything but God when it comes to lore and mythology. I'm not sure where they're heading. It should have ended a few years ago. I think it's on because it makes lot of money, not that they had more to tell.

    it's an endless cycle of the tension between sam and dean... something f'ed up happens to dean... they have to deal with it... the next season, something f'ed up happens to sam... they have to deal with it..

    This season had promise... they introduced the leviathans that Castiel sucked up from purgatory... but then they just leave it and go about their regular brotherly angst cycle...

    it survives in my watching list just because its a friday show... and i usually need a few timekillers on a saturday

    My money is on them bring back Dean's and Sam's old man at some point... I mean nothing is off limits to these writers. Both Dean and Sam had individually died and gone to hell... Sam essentially was a Demon Vampire are one point. Dean also was a vampire(one episode). What worse thing could happen to them than that? I don't rule out a crossing gender curse episode. Or a Dean becomes God episode. Or a Sam goes back and time stops Buddy Holly from getting on that plane because the plane was cursed by a "Manbearpig" episode...

    Game of Thrones is apparently really good and sticks close to the books they are based on. Might have to check that out.

    Sigh...there seems to a lot of really good shows on tv these days, but I just don't have the time to watch more than a few episodes of this or that in a week. I'm gonna have to choose wisely which new show I wanna dedicate some time to. I'm leaning towards Sons of Anarchy, but I def wanna check out at least the pilot of American Horror Story.

    Edit: as I am writing this I see that FX Canada will be launching on Halloween at 9pm with the premiere of American Horror Story. The new channel will also feature SOA. Free preview for Rogers customers. haha cool.


    One of the last big U.S. cable brands to cross the border arrives Monday. Will it be a hit or an American Horror Story?

    FX Canada launches at 9 p.m. Monday with a special Halloween night airing of American Horror Story, the creepy new drama from Glee producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. Rogers Digital and East Link subscribers can enjoy a two-month free preview (channel 318 on Rogers Digital and in high definition on Rogersí channel 565 in Ontario only). Distribution on other Canadian carriers is still being negotiated.

    Horror Story stars Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights) and Dylan McDermott (The Practice) as a couple whose marriage is almost as spooked and ruined as the sinister haunted house they move into in California. It is one of several shows originating from FX, the U.S. cable service that broke through a decade ago with Emmy-winner The Shield and became home to such provocative adult hits as Nip/Tuck (also from Murphy/Falchuk), Rescue Me, Damages and Itís Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

    Besides Horror Story, current FX hits airing on FX Canada will include the offbeat comedy Wilfred. Elijah Wood plays a guy whose best friend is a six-foot Australian in a dog suit. Early seasons of the modern western Justified and the gritty biker drama Sons of Anarchy will also be in the rotation (Pay-TV channel Super Channel still has the newer episodes of these FX series), as will Louis C.K.ís edgy comedy Louie.

    I watched the whole Game of Thrones season when I was off work sick for a few days back in the spring. Good series so far. The end of the season was a total shocker.

    If they keep to the books, wait until season 2, 3, and 4. I have not read the 5th book yet. It might be the only show/movie where watching the video version first is beneficial and recommended due to the amount of details in the story.

    Sounds like a good one for me and my girl. She's so sad that when we see a scary movie I need to go ahead and turn on the lights in any room she wants to enter. I laugh but it makes me wonder how much she values me life deep down... I mean what if there really is a zombie, werewolf or emo teen angst vampire lurking in that dark bedroom?

    lol... the only time that ever happened to me is with the original Japanese version of "Ring"... long before the american one came out... me and my roommate at the time, both 6 foot plus dudes... refused to answer the phone for a few days..

    if that's how she reacts... after american horror story.. she may never go in the basement again.... the perfect oppurtunity for you to lay claim on a man-cave down there..

    Already have laid claim over that territory but I like to keep a few cards up my sleeves. Duly noted.

    I really like both these shows. I'm the only one I know who watches Community. I think it is brilliant. The last episode I watched with the 6 parallel story-lines had me peeing myself. Excellent show.

    I just finished watching Season 3 of Breaking Bad. Very good stuff. Can't wait until next season.

    I haven't watched game of thrones or archer yet. I'll put them on my list.

    I'm trying to get into Camelot but I'm finding it a bit hard. I'm going to give it a few more weeks. Is game of thrones similar at all to Camelot?

    me and one of my coworkers are the only people i know of who watch Community.. and its a shame... its some excellent watching

    this season has been off the wall... almost david lynch-ian... the halloween episode was fantastic too

    by far, my favourite episode so far has been the dungeons and dragons episode from last season

    donald glover's (Troy in the show) comedy troupe from college has a lesser known movie out called "Mystery Team".. i cant recommend it enough.. its absolutely hilarious stuff... also his troupe, "Derrick Comedy" has a bunch of shorts up on youtube..

    little known fact.. or at least i just found out... donald glover used to be a writer on 30 Rock and was nominated for a writers guild of america award... also, he wrote for the daily show with john stewart...

    Wayans Bros' was mad jokes back in the day. Not sure how funny I would find it now though.

    As for Spartacus, yes the boobies are nice. Obviously the show doesn't have a big budget like a movie set would. So taking that into consideration the production is not bad at all. Keep watching it gets a lot better.



    Sports Night was a great show! Yeah sadly it lasted only 2 seasons.

    Third Watch I enjoyed a great deal as well. The guy who banged Leann Rimes (while she was married) was on that show.

    Eastbound and down...danny mcbride is awesome!



    now up to episode 6 for spartacus couldn't stop watching watched episode 3,4, and 5, back to back to back.

    ya, i faintly rember the guy. but, i do know he banged leann rimes.

    not sure i could though, i mean she's hot, but, if her eye lids were pulled back any further her eyes might revert to the back of her head.

    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
    Me and my girl were talking about how I have the kiss of death when it comes to T.V. shows. If I watch it, it's likely to get axed no matter how good it is. She's not into sci-fi but she did enjoy watching Jericho with me. Axed. I thought I was going to be able to get her into SGU but ah... Too late. Axed. Flash Forward was great and I had her on that from day one because it was sort of like a cop drama in some ways. Guess what? Axed. Ah damn it...

    I watched a bit of an episode from this year on DUSK last night.

    It was the stupidest shit. this guy went back in time or w/e. Prevented the Titanic from sinking and so everyone was like "oh wtf is the titanic."

    They talk to the guy and he was like oh I hated the movie(who didn't?) and Celine Dion is a bitch. So, now their is 50,000(seems a bit steep) offspring from generations of the non-survivor survivors.

    Some fate sisters are killing them all and their trying to stop them because their friends with people who shouldn't exist in the first place.

    BTW, guys hair looks like a legit mop.



    like this except it was all comed to one side, I mean seriously some bad hat harry.
