Nudity + violence + Boromir = awesome

How far are you?

Just wait for the season finale. This show knows how to surprise you.

The Practice

The Borgias

Ally McBeal which I am not sure I like. It is very funny, but the storyline is a bit feminine. Not saying that in a sexist way. I'm a huge romantic, but it's more like a unbearable chick flick. I like some chick flicks, but others are penance. Steele Magnolias is my cup of tea. But I think I will watch it off and on, because it takes place in the same virtual universe as The Practice and Boston Legal

Finished The West Wing Those last episodes, with the death of Leo, and then the end of the presidency, were tearjerkers. I hated to see the show end, and I think it was even harder for those who saw in end in real time. It's one of those classic shows.

Yeah, it has a lot of eye candy. Maybe that is the wrong word. Lucretia is gorgeous, but I mean all the beautiful music and liturgy. It is rather violent and has sexual content. But its entertaining. I'd like to read an accurate account of the Borgia papacy and Cesar Borgia. I know they follow the historical events well enough, but you know they take liberty.

The Practice and The West Wing are pure propaganda. But I confess that The Practice was at least entertaining to watch for the first couple of seasons. Some ridiculous plot lines, but the acting held it together and they at least attempted to somewhat disguise the political agenda. But The West Wing was just awful. As bad as Law and Order. Both shows had terrible writing, subpar acting, and they just beat you over the head with the political agenda. And I love Martin Sheen. I really do. But The West Wing was some of the worst stuff he's ever done.

OK, that's my judgmental opinion, FWIW.  ;)

If anyone should say that The Practice is not a good show, or that The West Wing is not a good show, let him be anathema.

Other than the liberal agenda of any Hollywood show, that in particular did you not like? And I agree The Practice can be melodramatic in the same way Law and Order can. The best Law and Order BTW is Criminal Intent because of Bobby, played by Vincent D'Onfrio. "Law and Order: SVU" is way too melodramatic to me. The writing on the Law and Order series are horrible, especially the original, but it is such a classic that it somehow becomes rather charming. Special Victims Unit, however, has better writing, but the exaggerated stuff, well, speaks for it self.

But as for The West Wing, I rather like it. I thought it was so good because the characters were so relateable. You felt like you knew the, and you grew to love them. And Bartlet, as you say, played by Martin Sheen was great. But I loved how Josh and Donna played of the chemistry for so long and so subtly. I thought the acting there was great. Toby also played his part well as the self-righteous, depressed guy. And of course Leo was great. On the whole I loved it. Not sure how it was anymore political propaganda than any other show though. I've really got to disagree with you there. I know The Practice has some preachy storylines, but it's likable. I loved the show.

Boston Legal was more fun though. I love James Spader. I've been watching "The Blacklist". The plot is a bit far fetched, everything falls together too easily each time, but the suspense is good, and I like how they play on the Hannibal Lecter-Clarice Starling relationship. In the beginning when Agent Keen comes in to see the imprisoned Reddington, Reddington is sitting in a glass box and Agent Keen, much like Starling in Silence of the Lambs sits down and introduces herself. It is all intentional of course. In the Lecter case he falls in love with Clarice, but I think Reddington is the father here. I do get annoyed at the moral justification of going against the rules of common law in a Machiavellian way to catch the bad guy. Using torture, or "enhanced interrogation", unlawful imprisonment without trial, and unlawful search and seizure among other things is propaganda. But it's entertaining.

Since I don't have Netflix now I needed something to play in the background when I'm doing this and that, so I've been rewatching all the NewsRadio episodes.

Ok, I'm finally getting around to watching the Walking Dead and I have some stupid questions. I'm only a few episodes in, but there are sandbags, military installations and tanks strewn about.  If these zombies just kind of shamble about until they smell living people and then go charging at them and gnaw on them, how could the military not stop that? You just keep shooting their heads off while they are off in the distance. You don't open up the tank hatch, and you use flamethrowers to burn them. They can't reproduce other than infecting people or having dead people become zombified and they are easy to kill. How have they completely overrun things in a few short months?

Do these questions get answered further in?

Kind of, though not necessarily in a way that is fully satisfying, depending on what you want/expect. Something in particular is revealed within the next half dozen or so episodes (I'm leaving that vague so as not to spoil it) that plays into the collapse of society, though it doesn't deal with your question about a rapid fall in particular. One way they have tried to explain it is ... [hidden minor spoilers]--> by giving examples of fortified places getting overrun, including an army base, with the idea being that once the ball gets rolling, things often veer out of control... for example, an infected person is afraid to say they got bit, so they go back inside the safe place, only to turn into a walker and start spreading it, and before people realise what is going on, there are two dozen zombies coming down the hall at you and a buddy or two and they overwhelm you. Really, I think your willingness to go along with this is probably dependent on how much you buy into the main and pessimistic premises of the show, especially: 1) that humans are selfish and can be irrationally driven by fear and be willing to do dangerous things and risk the lives of many others, and 2) that when faced with something like this situation ,most people panic, make fatal mistakes, don't think things out (so that people are the bigger danger than the zombies, in more ways than one.) <-- Taken as realistic (lulz real zombies?) it's hard to swallow, but taken as a bit of absurdist fiction (as much horror/fantasy/sci-fi is) I think it's not too difficult to accept. It's not for me, anyway.

I don't know a thing about your tastes, but if you have Netflix, "The Killing" and "Breaking Bad" series are both pretty brilliant and entertaining, from start to finish (imo).

I agree with the right person, after Josh and Jeremy got out, but overall this season was a letdown, and quite possibly the worst in my opinion.

I liked it.. It had several  blindsides, good juicy ones. Natalie really knew how to play the game and she did it without hateful aggressiveness. It even had a scorching speech from the jury at the end the likes of which we haven't seen in a long time. Ouch !

Plenty to look at too. John Rocker and Jon are a lucky men.

So did you keep watching, or did you give up on it? That second season can be rough to get through without falling into a boredom-induced coma at some point :P It gets better starting again in season 3.

I'm still watching. They just found the barn full of walkers and there is some manufactured sexual tension between Glenn and the farmer's daughter. I feel like something major needs to take place because they have been camping at this dude's farm for far too long now.

The Borgias, of course. I planned on watching another episode, but that sex scene between Lucretiza and her brother. Ewwwwwwww! Just disgusting. So repulsive. Supposedly there was/is some suspicion that this is accurate, the incestuous relationship. On the other hand, given how much the Borgias were hated, it could well be false. I just had to take a break and let that whole thing exit my mind.

Starting watching this last night (it's on netflix) and I was very surprised how good it was once you get past the pilot episode.

I was even more impressed by the ratings it got
7.7/10-IMDb
8.4/10-TV.com
100%-Rotten Tomatoes   <-- 100% on Rotten Tomatoes is hard to get imo

Watched 8 episodes last night (45min each) I'll most likely finish the first season tonight. It's hard to find good sci-fi these days and this is good.

When nuclear Armageddon destroys civilization on Earth, the only survivors are those on the 12 international space stations in orbit at the time. Three generations later, the 4,000 survivors living on a space ark of linked stations see their resources dwindle and face draconian measures established to ensure humanity's future. Desperately looking for a solution, the ark's leaders send 100 juvenile prisoners back to the planet to test its habitability. Having always lived in space, the exiles find the planet fascinating and terrifying, but with the fate of the human race in their hands, they must forge a path into the unknown.

I've yet to watch a single episode of Game of Thrones. Is that a negative or a positive reaction?
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

That depends on how you look at it.

Just watched episode nine of season 3 of Game of Thrones (the Frey wedding). I literally had a look like this one for the last five minutes...



Oh, that's nothing. You should see some of the reaction videos on youtube.

I dunno...? *unsure* I hadn't seen an episode until 2 weeks ago, and now I wish I'd have caught on much sooner.

Don't watch it now. You won't even get it before you have watched most of season 4.

I am tempted to start watching Breaking Bad again. Also still watching The Practice, which like every other legal drama is way too dramatic. But that is how it has to be to a degree. "To Kill a Mockingbird" with Gregory Peck would have been boring to watchers if it was not dramatic in the courtroom. The "Objection!" "Move to Strike!" stuff you see in these dramas as opposed to the more monotone, "Objection. Calls for speculation." "Objection. Hearsay." Like this:
