  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    I've never seen Doctor Who, though I keep hearing good things about it. There aren't really any British shows off the top of my head that I recall watching aside from Extras. I know my dad jumped to watching the British version of Being Human after initially watching the American version with Sam Witwer. And my brother watched the British version of the Office but told me he liked the American version better, though I don't even care for the American version, so I never bothered watching it.

    Extras was hilarious though :p

    I'm "behind" on shows that everyone keeps urging me to watch, like Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and Boardwalk Empire. Game of Thrones and Walking Dead are like the big two that I follow. TCW is like the only other show I make a note to record and never miss an episode of. Though the other two shows are in a completely different ball park and TCW is something I'd probably end up watching no matter how good/bad it is, just because it's Star Wars and I'd be optimistic for it to get better, while if Walking Dead went downhill, I'd probably stop watching it. I gave up on Eureka, Fringe, and True Blood when I hit a string of episodes I didn't enjoy. I enjoy Supernatural, though currently I feel like it's just spinning its wheels and not really going anywhere.

    I'm endlessly behind on shows as well. I've been watching 'Walking Dead' slowly lately. Pretty cool show. I really liked that theme at Halloween Horror Nights this year at universal. That was awesome.

    I spilled a coke on the carpet in my room and am having a hard time getting the stain out. Worse my Kindle was in the floor but luckly it seems to be working fine. Would have sucked since I only just got the new one.

    Am also watching the South Park Chistmas collection on Netflix. Now this brings out my spirit. "Merry Christmas Charlie Manson" is still one of my favorites. xD

    If you have Netflix, then I would highly recommend Doctor Who. It is really quite brilliant, the writing is phenomenal (watch out for Steven Moffat, he's the best). Sherlock is also on Netflix, and in my personal opinion it completely crushes the Robert Downey, Jr. versions. Homeland is phenomenal as well.

    Get on to that Tarkas, the show is perhaps the best show I've ever watched in terms of writing, action, political intrigue, production values and, of course, entertainment. It really helps they're based upon a brilliant series of epic novels. I cannot recommend it enough, especially considering the season beginning in March (S3) will be one of the series' finest.

    Daenerys does have some nice eggs.

    I've read the first book and I'm in the middle of the second. I hope to at least get as far as the end of A Clash of Kings before I start watching the series.

    Oh, and Stephen Moffat FTW! Mark Gatiss too. Dudes are the reason why I wasted space on my phone with the BBC iPlayer app. :p

    Sherlock alone won't count for a bribe Seerow, as Todd the Jedi says, there's not a lot yet. What would the bribe be?

    Anything really. I'm starting to get worried if you have anything resembling a social life. you haven't watched half the shows people talk about here, you need to be bribed to watch certain shows, and you are constantly at work.
