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.

I'm enjoying this - it's good to see a story like this expanded to 3 days, and not jammed into 90 minutes.

I'm guessing that shows what the old CC was all about? ;)

It's funny in a twisted sort of way, when George Carlin popped his clogs Bill Maher was the default replacement for me any way. He can make a lot of politicians look like scum bags....and that's not bad IMO

I never miss Real Time...

But I don't like Bill Maher all that much. In fact most of what he says pisses me off. He gave a million dollars to the Obama compaign and hasn't stopped reminding his viewers since. It's been months and he still finds a time to bring it up every week. He has his moments. Sometime I totally agree with what he's saying and even when I don’t agree with him, his show is funny! I also like that it's well, topical! I like having an idea of what’s going on politically down south. That way I won’t be totally taken by surprise when they start bombing us to take our oil... :mrgreen:
BTW, NOT A FLAME ... JUST AN OBSERVATION ... :P

Fred. isn't that past your bedtime.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Those McCoys are such assholes. I wonder if the feud will re-ignite now that they've all watched the show...

For those who read the book :lol:

Yes, but I'm not sure if the TV series will continue to follow the same path as the books. The next 3 books will be harder to convert directly then the first 2 were.

Jamie becomes a main character in the 3rd book, and Tyrion isn't even in the 4th. I don't think the series will go a full year with our the little Dink. They will have to re-work things, and pick the characters they want to follow.

It will also be interesting to see what happens down the road, their are only 5 books written over 20 years, season 3 is already under way and with the ratings on this season a 4th is a lock.

If things continue to progress, the TV series is going to catch up to the book.
