    House Of Cards on March 4.

    Better Call Saul this Monday. Trying to decide if I want to pay for the season pass on Amazon for this. If I do, I'll slum it for the SD (not HD) version. $17 vs $25...with a non-SFX show like this...that's a big price difference. Not worth it.

    Really well done, and season 2 can't arrive soon enough.

    I find it a bit more diverse than that, but it is a sitcom most of which are fairly formulaic.

    To each their own, but I couldn't stand it. Every episode is him blowing some perceived slight out of proportion and then whining the entire rest of the episode.

    Nova was at its peak tonight. It was about memories, how they're formed, and how they can be modified.

    Or erased.

    There were more than a few moments watching where I actually gasped.

    Ooooooh. That was the first fiction book since I was a wee lad that I enjoyed, or hell, even read voluntarily. And I plowed through that book during the wait/flight home from CO (about 4 hours total). Loved it.

    It's definitely not for everyone. Either the main character is going to come off as an abrasive doosh or a charming antihero. There isn't an in between.
    There is a reason for that...I mean he is the devil

    It is the same way in the comics, he is really an enjoyable character that is at the same time an arrogant who is used to the throne of hell. It has always been an interesting take Gaiman came up with.

    Samantha Bee's new show is pretty good. Lots of Daily Show roots in there. Her and John Oliver were two of my faves and it's nice to see them both with their own shows. Oliver's comes back this Sunday and it's brilliant.

    X Files

    Well, back to the Monster Of The Week. Good episode, but it seems like they are trying to cram too much into these 6 eps to please everyone, and hoping that the series will be brought back for a couple more full seasons to finally get all the answers. Right now, the whole government thing they started with hasn't even been mentioned in the last two eps. Have no clue where this is going to end up.

    Fox is really nailing the comic adaptations. The two they've picked up are excellent.
