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.

You know I think it has the potential to be Soprano's good. Thing about the Soprano's was every now and then they'd hit you with some dark humor. It really added to the show. I think the Pine Barrens episode was the best one made. Damn it was funny! Christopher and Paulie take the Russian to the woods to kill him after a grouchy Paulie starts a fight for no reason by breaking his remote control. After shooting him in the head the Russian gets up and runs away.... Paulie and Christopher chase him but lose him in the woods getting lost themselves in the process. Paulie then thinks he hears Tony say the Russian killed 16 Czechoslovaks and he's an interior decorator, instead of Special Forces.... It's so friggen funny. I laugh no matter how many times I've seen it!


Yeah, that's probably the best episode ever. Definitely the funniest. So many great episodes of that show. Ralphie and Phil were such great villians.

I just wish they hadn't gotten so in-depth with Meadow and AJ. That snotnosed little wimp was a really annoying character and the worst actor on the show. Has he done anything since the Sopranos?

Agree on the funniest episode. The Russian that just wouldn't die reminds me of Boris the Blade from snatch. Kept taking bullets, and kept getting back up.

Agree on the little snotnosed wimp too. They should have killed him off. Would have made for an epic episode and got rid of the weakest link at the same time.

Gesus Christ does Two and 1/2 men miss C Sheen. Ashton Kutcher is brutal and was one of the weaker links on the 70's Show IMHO.

Sure it's a strong ensemble cast but Sheen was the show.

I watched a re run before last night 2nd show, I was laughing out loud at Charlie several time and I didn't laugh out loud once for Ashton. Parts were funny but not enough and as much as before. I'll give it one more show before I drop it.

I gotta disagree.

The writing was the show, Sheen was just a side-show.

What is it with American television that must go on and on, season after season, well past its prime and well in debt to inflated actors salaries?

The show's been done for years, Charlie or no Charlie.

I cant believe how good Breaking bad is this season.

Every episode just keeps raising the bar, it's so high now that I dont even know how they wil end the thing it with out it being disapointing.

That scene with Guss looking over the wall of the parking garage and Mr White freaking out was incredible.

Not just the best show on TV but perhaps one of the best shows ever made.

Breaking Bad is excellent but I find it a little slow some nights.

Boardwalk Empire has definitely raised the bar from last season. The first two episodes have been fantastic.

I agree,,, but I dont understand how you can call breaking bad "slow" and then jump into praise for Boardwalk Empire.

One is moving at a 9.9 and the other is moving at a 6.

I love both shows though.

I don't think the writers could possibly top season 4 with Trinity, but Dexter season 6 started Sunday and promises to go back to his roots and taps in the spiritual side.

First episode wasn't a disappointment.

Boardwalk just gets better with every episode. Mrs. Schroeder is one savvy dame.

I stumbled upon Boardwalk with the free Central preview with Telus.

First two episodes of the first season (I believe) got me hooked already.

Terra Nova has been "ok". The second episode was a big drop off after the first.

Have not even heard of Breaking Bad. Is that on HBO?

Download the first season if you can before watching the rest of the second. Starts slowish but gets better every episode.
