Did you see the episode that spoofed The Wizard, complete with Power Glove?
No, but I'm sure it ruled.

I'll start on Robotech after this show. Finishing up 5 of 8 now. These characters are so stupid. Maybe it's something wrong with the oxygen on this planet.

Just saw American Reunion. That movie was hilarious. Hadn't laughed that hard at the movies since I saw Bruno.

Finished Outcasts. That was so hard to stomach. Great premise. Stupid characters and writers. Also the AC's made almost no sense as written. XPs were kind of pointless. I don't know.

Premise if reorganized and better written could make a good game. Although my character would of killed Julius Berger first chance I had. I don't know why killing a douche bag who should of stayed with the trash on Earth seems like a easy decision. I mean before he even landed.

THAT I am glad to hear. As so many of my shows seem to turn sour after the second season. Unfortunately, there is only one more season on Netflix.

I should probably give Breaking Bad another shot. I never made it past the second episode. I assume it must pick up soon after.

Well, keep in mind that there are only four seasons so far, and the fifth season (starting in July) is the last.

See, my wife would sit down and watch the entire series in one sitting. I, on the other hand, like to have something to look forward to tomorrow. So I will only watch one, maybe two....episodes a day. Hopefully, it won't be too much longer before they put the 4th season on Netflix.

This is true, but it's going to be longer and have a break in the middle, so it's almost like we're getting 2 more seasons.

Only eight episodes per half-season, so it's a total of sixteen episodes. I don't remember how long the previous seasons were, but that doesn't seem like a whole lot of episodes.

Same here, just didn't stick with me. Everyone's raving about it, so I'm probably going to try again at some point. So much good TV right now and so little time!

Lockout with Guy Pearce.

I had a lot of fun. Everyone else I went with thought it was okay. I thought it was a love letter to pulpy sci-fi. Was it original in any way? No, probably not. But I didn't know what was going to happen, and the acting was all solid, and it kept me laughing and paying attention. I love when stakes keep going up and up, and here they definitely did.
