    The comic is way better (it is a spinoff from Sandman) but the show is quite enjoyable

    ... and then keeps going...
    And then just decides to floor it.

    If they're bringing that back for Season 2, they'd better do something. Season 1 was an absolute abortion. I can hear Jim Henson spinning in his grave from here.

    I did not know that.


    And I haven't seen the British HOC, because I think a lot of the political stuff would be lost on me, due to not knowing the intricacies of how their politics work.

    I feel like Orange is spreading itself much too thin and running out of story. A lot of people seemed to like the end of last season, but I thought it reeked of desperation.

    House of Cards also went on a downward slope in season 3. I loved it for the politics, but it seemed to turn into a soap opera with a political backstory. Hopefully that changes in season 4.

    Muppets returned Tuesday. I thought it was a pretty good episode, but apparently lowest ratings ever. I thought Kep said it had been renewed for a 2nd season already, but who knows if that happens.

    I know...I never give up anyways and it is obvious they are setting up a crapload of stuff. I just wish I didnt feel the need to take a two day break after each episode.

    I will warn you, it ramps up in action hardcore, and I think it's because of the initial contract. They didn't know it become this huge of a show, so they accelerated things. And then gave it HGH. And cocaine. And about 8 cases of energy drinks.

    That being said, I love the show, and his breaking the fourth wall is spectacular.

    Did you ever see the British version? It also is spectacular. I am really impressed that (a) Netflix writers and cast were able to match the quality of the original, which is absolutely fantastic, and (b) they were able to adapt it so well from the British political system (Prime Minister, House of Commons, king, ministers, etc.) to the US political system.

    I was a bit surprised that there is a Season 4....if the US version ends in analogous manner to the British version, watch out for some spectacular fireworks to come.

    If you haven't seen the British version yet, don't watch it until the US version ends, so that you can be equally stunned by the ending. (while it doesn't yet mean anything to you, "Trust Corder"... wow.)

    HoC jumped the shark the second they cast Kevin Spacey.
