Lets see. Marines with chain guns and arty vs. unarmed slow moving Zombies whose only weapon is to bite you.

Thirty Marines with a few chain guns and several cases of beer and the Zombie problem goes away fast.

Actually you wouldn't even have to him them in the head, targeting the legs would be much easier and sufficiently limit their mobility. Lower the chain gun and unleash.  Tongue

On another note I'm interested about the helicopter Rick saw when he first got to Atlanta. Was it real? Who owned it? Does it appear in the comic?

Final report: The Bachelor ( no homo)

He picked Courtney. No surprise..yawn... He kept asking : Who would my Dad want me to pick" ..Well, Courtney of course.. She is drop dead gorgeous...

But she is a total nut case man eater... He looked like something the cat dragged in last night..... Hope it was good.

One of the best written shows on television, bar none. And, it does not glamorize the characters' bad behavior. To the contrary, it shows how it tears people and families apart.

Oh, I agree. The writers are brilliant at depicting the corrupting effects of sin. It's just that I don't always feel entirely comfortable watching the characters clean up partially dissolved entrails, choke people with bike locks, throw parties with topless women, have sex with meth whores, explode law enforcement agents, and use very naughty language in the graphic manner often depicted on the show when I'm with my mom, and I always feel like she's judging me for liking it before she did.

Not criticizing you per se, but this statement does seem to embody the trend discussed in this thread.  And keep in mind that I'm watching this stuff with my mother.

Just saw Walking Dead season finale, a week late. I was out of town and couldn't get AMC there.

Hershel used the butt of his gun like Davey Crockett...... as predicted.

Hooded Woman with zombies on a leash.... WTF

Last shot is of a Prison in the distance. High walls, barbed wire. Looks like home to me.

"Mad Men" finally returns!  Bert Cooper's return to SCDP unexplained?  I saw Don get engaged last season; he wasn't married yet; did I miss his marriage?  When did Don tell Megan about "Dick?"  How about that concluding scene?  "You don't have to say you love me, just be close at hand.  You don't have to stay forever I will understand..."

If you liked NewsRadio, you'll probably enjoy Buffalo Bill. It's a forgotten 80s sitcom which is basically Bill McNeal in a TV studio. Great stuff.

Sherlock on Masterpiece Mystery with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman

It's the second set of 3.  Set in present day London with the Consulting Detective handling modern twists on some of the old stories.  Very well done for the most part and quirky.

Thank you, Ebor, I'm going to try it.

Actually, I recently bookmarked that show on Netflix -- along with a bunch of other shows. But I probably wouldn't have gotten around to it without someone mentioning it.

It can be rather edgy and B.C. is playing Holmes as someone who is not in the "normal" neural spectrum and that's how he's able to pick us minutia and put things together.  It's rather like Jeremy Brett's Holmes who came across somewhat as in the Asperger's-Autistic spectrum. (I know people who are in the AAS).

Both roles have Holmes as someone who does not always (or often) recognize/realize what could be proper social cues and interactions.  If you have a chance to read any of Temple Grandin's work on what it's like being autistic it's  it might look familiar, for instance that other people's emotional relationships not being part of her world.  That is, she doesn't understand them/emotions like that are not part of her being.  

Well, this Sherlock is like that and there are scenes where he might remember that he's supposed to act a certain way or he uses a particular behaviour to get information that he wants.  In the first episode he responses to a remark by a member of the police force with "I'm not a psychopath, Anderson. I'm a high-functioning sociopath. Do your research."

Also, the translation to the present works pretty well.  In the stories Holmes and Watson meet when he is a relatively young man and he does use the latest technology of his day with chemistry experiments and telegrams and such.  Well, this Holmes uses science and computers and texting on phones.

There are some fine references to the originals, things like Freeman's Watson has just returned from an army posting to Afghanistan and with the ban on public smoking Holmes at one point has a "three patch problem" (nicotine patches)

It's not every Holmesian's cuppa but you might like it.

P.S. just as a caution: The first episode of season 2 "A Scandal in Belgravia" does have some nudity, though it's not full frontal and it does have a tidy reason that fits in the character of Irene Adler.  But it's not for small children

I liked the movie, Temple Grandin, but I hadn't given much thought to reading something by her until you brought it up.

Anyhoo, I'll probably try Sherlock in the next few days. I'll let you know what I think.

A friend and I were discussing Breaking Bad tonight. We're both making our way through it. One thing we noticed is that the show displays the excuses we create to rationalize our behavior. We know we do wrong things, but we try to rationalize them in one way or another. I think it's a very well-written show, personally.

Does Buddy get better over the season?

I love Smash Williams though, his character change after the discovery of the steroids was awesome.

I think season 3 was ok, but after that some of the main characters left and it became a bit too cliched. The pro-abortion propaganda also inevitably reared its ugly head in season 3 or 4 I think. Some interesting plot lines were left dangling as well. But the first two seasons were excellent. I think season three was pretty good too. But after that it went downhill. Of course, you are so invested in it by that point that you keep watching.

BTW, Brad Leland (Buddy Garrity) was in the movie, and the actress that plays the coach's wife was also in the original movie. Brad Leland is perfect in that role.

So Buddy Garrity gets better though? He's dislikable right now, and I'm on episode 14.


But the thing is that he's dislikable because he sells that role so well. That's why I like him. I won't divulge whether he gets "better" or not.  Wink

I've been enjoying Malcolm in the Middle on Netflix. Quite nostalgic and quite funny.

Yep. I suppose it's their apology for only doing one DVD release.

I used to watch that.

I'm curious about your "nostalgic" comment ...
