One of the best shows on TV right now.

I prefer the green lantern one because Young Justice seems to just jump around so much between plotlines/seasons. Or maybe my tivo isnt recording every episode like it should be >.>


There was a five-year skip between season 1 and season 2, but other than that, they've done a pretty good job of tying a bunch of disparate subplots into a cohesive whole.

I think you can often tell who watches what based on the commercials.

for example, compare the commercials during college football with the NFL.

on saturday, you will notice a lot of retirement, investment, banking, and other financial planning ads.

on sunday, you will see trucks with balls hanging from the trailer hitch and fast food.

/ although, that doesn't necessarily show a party division. But, it does betray an education and perhaps income divide.

I alone am best: I'm conservative like all kinds of TV my current viewing addictions below. Does not include golf.

Dr Who
Duck Dynasty
Warehouse 13
Lost Girl Gold Rush > Bering sea gold
American Pickers
How its made > Just to go to sleep.
Almost anything on adult swim.


I was at my cousin's wedding last week and brought up how I fall asleep to "How It's Made". Both my brothers do the same thing.

I like the writing and characters on the GL show, but the 1990s-era CGI animation drives me up a wall. It's the same as the horrible CGI Star Wars: The Clone Wars (as opposed to the awesome Genndy Tartakovsky one).

In both the CGI Clone Wars and animated GL universes, these are some of the most popular hair-care products for humans and most humanoid characters:

Even in the recent episodes featuring the Manhunter robots, you'd expect that they'd at least look somewhat metallic, even if not chrome-type reflective. Brushed metal look would do. No. They look like they're made of plastic, as does everything else except hair (see above).

I could do better than that with open-source software such as Blender3D!

This article makes me glad I don't have TiVo, and ensures that I never will.

Democrats like the sports that promote and praise individual achievement, and properly compensate those individuals for their accolades.

If I watch COPS, "American Greed" and NatGeo Wild, where exactly do I fall on the political spectrum?

Does "watching" this make me a a republican or democrat???

I spent many of my formative years watching stuff like that.

Doesn't Showtime have Weeds, Shameless, The Borgias, and previously the Tudors isn't that the type of tv that Republicans claim is leading to the decline of America?

/Republicans should be watching their patron saint Kelsy Grammer on Starz in Boss, except I hear there is a lot of sex in it.
//Borgia on netflix now that has some family values that republicans could get behind


No one has ever called Republicans hypocrits..

Cartoons are far more rich in story and entertainment value than any given reality show garbage that's constantly shoveled out on nearly every channel.

But, I don't have cable any more. TV abandoned me.
Fark you Discovery Networks and your ilk.

Democrats watch more cartoons, yeah yuh

That would have been so awesome.

The only people who watch golf on TV are the people who don't value their weekends enough to actually go outside and do something.

The Republican list, beyond sports (Nascar was also big), was populated with a host of reality shows - "The Biggest Loser," "Survivor," "American Idol" and "The Amazing Race.'

Kind of figures republicans would believe contrived situations are reality.

Beyond PPV movies, I watch SNL each week if it's new. I'm usually disappointed. Otherwise, I don't watch TV. On the weekends, I tend to the property.

If we feel like getting involved in a show, we wait and get it on DVD and watch a short season over a few weekends. Eureka, True Blood, The Wire, Boardwalk Empire, and Supernatural are our continuing favorites. Beyond that, we don't watch TV because we're busy doing more important stuff with our free time. Today I'll be replacing the brake pads on my wife's car and it's probably going to take all day.

WWE has "individual achievement"?, I thought they just followed a script. And Soccer is a sport where you gain points by whining

demotivators.despair.com

Besides, the Olympics, NASCAR, Golf and Bull riding all "promote and praise individual achievement, and properly compensate those individuals for their accolades"

Since when does soccer, Basketball, and Monster Trucks do that?
