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.

Shit's gotta hit the fan, there's only 8 more episodes and then the series is done.

Looks as though there will be a definite end to this series!

One of the best shows I've seen without question.

Watched the pilot of Last Resort. Looks like it has some great potential.....here's hoping they don't wreck it.

Two episodes into Revolution, intrigued by the main plot line. However, I prefer a more linear approach to stories and find flashback story telling a bit frustratingly slow at times.....I would rather they start somewhere and carry through to the outcome or build something up and then produce a complete prequel that runs into the beginning of the original. Still looks to be a good show though.....

I've watched the first two episodes and it's pure shit! Total shit! NBC, what did we expect?

HBO... How does NBC compete with that? They don't and that's the problem with Revolution. Kids aren't watching Revolution and no adult that's witnessed countless drama's on HBO and more recently AMC is going to watch that pile of crap and be able to take it serious... Giancarlo Esposito's, Breaking Bad fan's will not stick around IMO!

Actually Revolution might of worked had it been developed for HBO! :thumbs:

(yes i am a network snob, mainly because i dislike shit tv whoiswithme)
BTW, NOT A FLAME ... JUST AN OBSERVATION ... :P

Well I won't even argue that HBO knows how to make TV. There aren't any shows that I'm aware of that really touch the stuff they put out in terms of production quality and grit. In Canada I would say that Showcase does a good job, but it's still not HBO. I'm not even comparing anything on the mainstream networks to HBO's shows like GoT.

Did anyone catch Walking Dead season premiere on Sunday? What a beauty ... looks like this season is going to be awesome!

666 Park Avenue, Go On, and Guys with Kids are my favorite new ones this fall. Also still love Modern Family :)

Just started watching Walking Dead. Got through the first season already on Netflix, the second is on there as well. I'm PVRing the current season so I can watch when I get caught up.

Still watching Dexter as well, gotta see how it ends.

Hell on Wheels got a LOT better in season 2 though I didn't like the last episode. Cullen will be a very angry man next year and hopefully the Swede gets whats coming to him.

As an asside i need to find some new shows here with SOA and Homeland coming to a halt in the next three weeks. NFL Football, Rules of Engagement reruns and CSI NY won't be enough to ride out the winter.

Breaking Bad has like 8 more episodes and it is done. WTF I need a new show !!
