  • Re: TV, or not TV, that is the question

    I remember the existence of Dark Shadows. But it was kinda fun watching a bit of the marathon on Decades Channel.

      They've been breaking "Once Upon A Time" into half seasons with separate arc's for the last three years.

      Astronaut Wives Club was only a 10 or 11 episode run (granted that was summer programming and only one season).

      ABC seems a little more willing recently to gamble on shorter "seasons".

        I saw an ad on the side of a bus this morning for a three-part series on SyFY based on Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clarke, starting December 14.

        I remember liking the book very much, but I can't remember much about the plot other than the surprise ending.

          Just binge-watched season 3 of The Americans. Holy crap! Can't wait for 4.

          Now into Homeland 4 and it's off to a much better start than 3.

            Wow. That has potential. Too bad Broadway has sucked for the last 30 years. How about "OffBroadwayHD"?

              Watched Wicked City premiere last night after hockey. I dunno. I wasn't that impressed. I'm probably going to skip it.

                  Through the first 3 episodes of The Leftovers season 2. First episode was ok, second brought it all together very nicely, and I was really excited for this season after the first 2 episodes. Then I watched the 3rd, and it was a completely different storyline, that I quickly realized I didn't care about at all. I guess I'll have to suffer through these episodes on the "Laurie" storyline, to follow the "Texas" story.

                    Several weeks into Colbert's Late Show, it's basically must see TV at this point when he's got a good guest. His interview with Hillary was excellent, but his interview on the same night with Carrie Brownstein* was one for the ages. He's just so smart and interesting and genuine.

                      So I stumbled upon "Adam Ruins Everything" on TruTV, anyone else enjoying this show? The format can be a little frustrating but the information is fascinating, although I have known quite a bit of it, but maybe not to the extent that he explains things.

                        Would love to watch it, but never stay up that late and CBS won't add it to Hulu since it's pushing its own streaming service which costs just as much. Because when I pay 9 buck per month for lots of networks' shows, that means I'll pay the same amount for just one network's shows.

                          Yes, CBS is on the Naughty List, for sure with that move. You can stream the past couple episodes of all their shows from their own site, but not from Hulu. Irritating. The video quality on their site is glitch.
