TV Shows: What are you watching?

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Not in Sweden it hasn't! :evil:


Per, I know Meds gave away some info there, but as he said, there are a lot of twists and great story telling in GOT. Even though I know what has already happened or what will happen (Books are a good spoiler as well) I'd still go back and watch Season 1 as a refresher.

I will say this, the series stays pretty true to the books, more so than most adaptations.

Was totally blindsided when they killed Sean Bean and Jason Momoa, but love any story with the balls to put some early build up into some characters and then kill them. I'm an even bigger fan of the director/producer team that is willing to stick to that story and kill off the two more well known actors who play those roles rather than change story to appease some fans of said actors.


Well, I guess now that you've seen it there's no point in anyone else enjoying those twists, eh Meds? I mean, what else could be the logic behind completely ruining the series for anyone who hasn't seen it yet?


First season has been over for well over a month.

If you haven't seen it yet.....oh well. Sorry. But, there are plenty of other twists to surprise you Rummy.

Oh, I've read the books. I started a thread about them in 2003 on Central to see if anybody else was into them. It's my favourite series ever.

My concern was for the people reading this thread who see that several people have recommended the show and might want to check it out... but just had the two biggest scenes in the season ruined for them. You could have sold the show without getting into detail.

But whatever...

Haha. Like a steel trap, Doc. A steel trap.

And an excellent memory too.

And regarding the Game of Thrones show, yes, it is very good. A little clunky early in the season but the actors really find their groove by the eighth episode.

It really lacks the tremendous backstory and vivid detail of the novels, but as far as adaptions go it is top notch. Can't wait for season 2.

My W2B is hooked on that crap. :evil:

Can't you find anything better to do in the twilight of the summer? :P

LOL doubt I magically find it on again. But I'm glad emotional Melissa is voted off, she seems like my crazy ex, just not as crazy ruthless. :P

Just half way through season two and holy shit.... what a FANTISTIC show! I'm still early on in the series but it's looking like it could be better than the Soprano's!?!?

If you haven't seen it... WATCH it! :wink:

The Wire is, without hesitation, my favorite all-time HBO program.

Season 2, IMO dropped off a little, but they came right back in 3 and knocked it out of the park.

A former Sgt. of B-more PD is one of the writers/ex. prods and plays a big role in the production.

Outstanding program.

Love the scene with McNutty and the Ho's - classic!!!!!

The Wire has been done for several seasons.

If you really want to get into it though, you will most definitely need to watch it for S1E1 - not unlike any other epic HBO series.

McNulty: Let me understand. Every Friday night, you and your boys are shooting craps, right? And every Friday night, your pal Snot Boogie… he'd wait til there's cash on the ground and he'd grab it and run away? You let him do that?
Man On Stoop: We'd catch him and beat his ass but ain't nobody ever go past that.
McNulty: I gotta ask ya: If every time Snotboogie would grab the money and run away, why'd you even let him in the game?
Man On Stoop: What?
McNulty: If Snotboogie always stole the money, why'd you let him play?
Man On Stoop: Got to. This America, man.
