^Yeah, looking forward to that...I guess Billy K's book is out soon too, it's been a long time since I've read/watched anything about the Dead so it'll be good

I just started watching Daredevil, not great, not bad so far...it has a vibe to it that seems like nothing really terrible is going to happen to any of the main characters, which makes it pretty predictable so far but we'll see
rather be on tour..

Gomer Pyle in FMJ.

Oh, wow...had no idea. That was quite a while ago. He's aged quite well.

He also played Edgar from Men in Black, as well as the "Brand New Edgar Suit" seen below.

The same year he did FMJ, he appeared in Adventures in Babysitting with Elizabeth Shue.

Bit of an under-appreciated film in my opinion, but he is amazing in The Cell as well.

Just a few episodes short of the season 2 finale of Bates Motel. It's a fun watch. Vera Farmiga is a great Norma. Nutty and controlling but still sort of sincere and sympathetic at the same time. It moves along pretty quickly and is full of crazy happenings to keep you piqued. Also cool to see where the Norman Bates we met in Psycho came from. If you're looking for a new series to get into, I'd recommend.

^ The acting from Freddie Highmore in Season 3 is pretty stellar. Vera is consistently excellent throughout. Enjoy your Instant-Queue!

^Agree. But the storyline had to begin pushing Norman 'over the edge' at some point. It's unfortunate that the Bates Motel has to meet 'Psycho' at some point, and I believe the acting, writing and directing is doing that very nicely.

^ I tried to DL some episodes but this show is not that easy to find. I think I found links for just the first 3 eps but that's about it.

Double Post:

Well after I posted the response above yesterday I managed to find some links for the first season. So this show will be on my list of ones where I've DL'd, and waiting for the next time I decide to binge watch using my computer.

One step closer!

I really enjoyed the first season of Boardwalk Empire. The 2nd season was good too. The last few seasons I really had to get through, but that was just me.

The Prohi character was pretty interesting. I also really like the phrase "Prohi at a Speak."

I am three episodes in, after being hesitant because of a fucking terrible trailer.

But I am enjoying it!

^ Started watching this over the weekend. I think I'm on the 2nd episode.

So far, the show is just OK. The premiere episode was not able to stand on its own without the flashbacks to entice the viewer to continue watching. If you take the flashbacks out, the plot / details included in the 1st eps is lacking. In the 2nd eps, they tried to build suspense and intrigue by leaving out a key scene chronologically, only to reveal what happens later on the the episode. The re-arranging of scenes out of chronology seems to be a tactic employed by this show. Some part of that I like and some parts I'm not a huge fan of (e.g., 1st eps flashbacks).

The daughter is the chick from Freaks and Geeks. Good to see her getting some camera time.

I will probably finish this series but I'm not in a huge hurry to binge-watch the remaining eps. Maybe that's a good thing.

^ This is not a review because I'm not through it totally, but I'm four episodes into the series and I'm not feeling it. Possibly because I'm watching at the end of the day when TV generally anesthetizes me.

It must be me. House of Cards has been one of my favorites, but we're struggling to get through this latest season. Only up to episode 10. For shame.

Don't really know whether television and movies are just getting so saturated that it's becoming harder to find quality product through so much dribble, or over the years, because I've seen so much, that it all just seems so blasé and predictable.

I find myself watching a lot of YouTube, especially when Jaime comes over. He shows me some incredible videos.
