When I was a fulltime poster, I literally watched 0 TV.  Technically, I still don't watch TV because I watch Hulu/Amazon/Netflix on my Vita/PS3/PC but I have been watching television series back to back lately for some reason.  Here are the shows you must watch and/or catch up on:

- Spartacus, STARZ series
- Walking Dead, AMC series
- Game of Thrones, HBO series
- House of Cards, Netflix exclusive series

These four shows have made me believe in television again. As long as people make shows like these, video games won't take over...quite as quickly. But mark my words, television, you're time is running out!

Looks like you pretty much watch all the shows I'm into right now. You should add Boardwalk Empire, Sons of Anarchy, Homeland, and Breaking Bad to your list SCoLD. These are the other shows that renewed my faith in television aside form the ones you listed.

I watched this movie about a month ago called Red State. I don't know if it's been discussed yet or not, but fuck it, I'm doing it here and now anyway. So it's about this church full of crazies, ala, Westboro Baptist Church. Uber-Christians who believe it's their job to cleanse the sinners, blah blah blah. I don't wanna run on and possibly spoil it for anyone, but it's a pretty damn good look at nutcase institutions like that. The weirdest part is that it's a Kevin Smith deal. Didn't see THAT coming.

I saw Red State last year some time. It was a pretty decent flick. I only watched it because Kevin Smith directed it. I'm more of a fan of his goofy comedy stuff, but this was a passion project for him and I can respect that. Its a shame he might be leaving the directing game soon.

Speaking of Kevin Smith, if any of you haven't seen any of his Q&A stand up thingamajigs on netflix I highly recommend all of them. I think hes done 3 or 4 of them. Anyway, hes one of the greatest story tellers of all time in my opinion from the standpoint of just getting on stage and talking about things that have happened to him over the years. Pretty hilarious and captivating stuff.

A buddy of mine talked me into watching Red State, but didn't tell me it was a Smith flick until it was over. I would've never guessed otherwise. While I am a huge Kevin Smith fan, he has done a couple movies I'm not fond of at all. Like Jersey Girl. Fuck that load of horseshit right there. As far as his stand ups go, I've watched the one about him being overweight.. 40-Something or other.. He is most definitely an entertaining guy to listen to just ramble on about life or whatever pops into his head. He'd make a good drinking buddy lol.

Check out some youtube videos of him at conventions. He's great on stage.

Dunno if anybody else besides me watches "artsy/foreign" movies, but one of the best movies I've seen in a while was the French movie "Amour". Very emotionally draining but incredibly well done, and the acting was incredible. Emmanuelle Riva was robbed at the Oscars. Jennifer Lawrence? Nothing against Silver Linings Playbook, it wasn't bad, but her winning is kind of ridiculous.

I also saw Upstream Color last night. Fucking weird.

I'm really looking forward to Pacific Rim though. Anybody that knows me knows why. Plus, directed by Guillermo Del Toro and featuring GLaDOS? I'm so in:

I'm always looking for obscure movies as most hollywood movies just aren't getting it done for me these days so any suggestions like those are welcome.

Not quite sold on Pacific Rim yet but I knew you'd be all over that.

The Defiance show is alright so far. It still doesn't compare to Firefly.




Here's a clip from last night's Game of Thrones





Think I'll check out House of Cards since I'm always passing by it.


I do agree that tv is dying out. Things like Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube SAP tv viewers. Just the internet in general is a good news/weather source. Unbiased and a click away at any time of the day.

Not to mention tv is so full of commercials now more than ever. Probably to make up for the loss of viewers.
