Here is a new show, I just found out about, S-1 is out on dvd, and S-2 will start
Feb 26 on FX .
It is very well done and a unique topic.
I have only seen the 1st 2 but they were compelling to watch.
serious drama based on history, with a lot of suspense.

I'm going to try to pick it back up. I watched most of S1 but towards epi 8 or so it was losing me. The promos for this season with the kid nosing around them looks pretty good.

I do that sometimes. Mostly with re-runs though. Like Dexter. I'd like to do a True Blood marathon too since I've only seen them once.

my wife's niece and her boyfriend have 5 seasons on disc, they are about halfway through, and have promised to get them to me when they are finished. We bought them 3,4 and 5 for christmas


funny how the show seems to be even more popular now that it is ended than it was when it was on.

yeah if only someone had bothered to let us know what a good show it is and that we should watch it, we would have been ahead of the game

T   hai  in pm you mentioned you were on episode 10... how many are left for you? you'll have to remind us how the last episode went cause i cant remember lol  blush 

you also mentioned how you werent sure who we were rooting for - lol it's funny cause there have been a few shows like that lately. Breaking bad and Dexter for example. 

Blondie used the world "Anti-Hero" a while back and that fit the description perfectly i thought  Very Happy

Well then next step is serenity, the movie made to wrap up the series.
River was played by summer glau, who played the protector terminator
in Terminator tv show. A similar role like river, you might like that too.

Yes, I did watch Serenity, which is why River is awesome.  Very Happy  There is a documentary about Firefly and Serenity on Netflix, I have not watched that yet.

Summer was/is on the show Arrow, she is a ruthless cooperate person. I did not recognize her at all. I loved Rivers innocence. And her fear of the preachers hair. lol.

If I could have one question answered about Firefly, is how the hell, did Shepard Book, know so much about weapons and fighting. In the last eppie of Firefly, that sociopath bounty hunter, told Simon, that Book was not a Shepard.

There is a graphic novel that goes into Books past, it's worth reading, very interesting story.

Cool,I have seen that, but did not know if it was worth the read.

Summer, was also on Dollhouse, along with the guy who played Wash. Dollhouse, is another Joss W. production.

I liked last weeks eppie, they are both much more paranoid, and their nosey daughter, is going stumble onto something.

i love this show.
I like to have a few stock piled to watch together. Page is getting a little too curious and a lot bitchy!
when Stan told Phillip about the affair with a coworker - I thought hmm Phillip might be concerned about Martha -but I guess he'd already known about Nina.

What a start to the final season! This show always uses music so well. Actually played whole song over interwoven scenes brilliantly! Then part of another Fleetwood Mac (pilot shoutout) tune. The best show on TV is back and looks like it's going out with a bang! yay

The last two episodes were krazy! Can't believe there's only two left in the series! Also why the frak are there only 10 episodes this season? All the previous seasons were 13? 36

Two more eps and we're done huh.

Predictions.

Phillip dies by Stan's hand.
Paige kills Stan and frames him as a mole. The she is whisked off to Russia for more spy training and probably some rape.
Elizabeth kills Claudia, then goes into hiding.
Henry takes over the business.
