Action? Yes. But more or less brain trauma?
 
2013-02-02 06:23:20 PM  
Ugh, Andrea.

Mmmmm, Maggie.

I don't think action properly describes The Walking Dead.

I will flip back and forth between Walking Dead and Golden Girls. I'm not kidding.

The super bowl has plenty of action...15 seconds of running, followed by 5 minutes of replay and reset.

I hope Andrea dies a horrible death. Her stupidity and overall annoyance is now above Lori. It's also gotten to the point where her ignorance is what keeps the plot moving along. All it would take would be for her to have an ounce of realization and the entire drama would disappear. That fight between Michonne and The Governor....all she had to do was trust the person that kept her alive and kill the Governor and boom, everyone's problem is solved. But nope, the writers kept her retarded to keep the plot moving along. Please kill her

Go watch House of Cards on Netflix. It is wonderfully devious and back-stabby, just like you expect politics to be. Kevin Spacey is wonderful at being a southern gentleman who likes to convince you to stick a knife in yourself and then he twists it

"Your team" means whatever team happens to be in the city your are living in or what city you are from. I can appreciate the talent that goes into the commercials but if you really give a shiat about commercials then you're part of the problem.. So.....BEER!
 
2013-02-02 07:31:33 PM  
Which also goes with having Michonne not being so stupid. She knows everything yet never explains her reasons when just telling people who she knows would solve so many problems.

The only interesting thing about the Super Bowl is that the new Star Trek Into Darkness trailer will come out.

Also; please tell me that vlog brothers were just making stuff up when they said only 11 minutes of the three hours of a game broadcast is actual play?  And you Americans accuse cricket of being boring.  At least cricketers actually spend their time playing, not standing around or "setting up" to play.
 
2013-02-02 07:49:08 PM  
Hah! I give less of a shiat about the game than any of you! I schedualed an eye exam for tomorrow so my pupils will be blown out for the game.

It is true.  The better anology is soccer.  A game is 90 minutes of actual play, but you never know when the exciting action is going to happen.  This is boring for the typical American.

In football there is much less actual play time, but you get one exciting burst of action predictably every 30 seconds or so.  This makes it so that you can turn your attention away briefly and know that you won't miss anything.

I'll probably be playing various video games the whole day tomorrow. I will tune in for the half time show to see Beyonce, then back to video games and Twitter to see all the fans, Stans, and gurls talk about the performance.

Why does Maggie seem older in Supernatural than in The Walking Dead? Is it the British accent? Well anyway, she's going to be at Comicon in April and I'm totally going to be there and later Photoshop myself groping her.

I think it also describes the success of many of our top rated sitcoms and dramas too. You can literally read a magazine or browse the internet while you "watch" and not miss anything important.

I'll be watching the Superb Owl tomorrow, since my beloved Niners are playing, but I gotta tell ya, I tried watching "The Walking Dead" right from the beginning on Netflix with my kids (adults) over the Christmas visit and we were all bored to tears. I ended up in the kitchen doing dishes and they were each on their tablet and laptop when I came back into the living room. "Can you change the channel, Mom?" "Sure thing, kids. This show is boring, isn't it?" "Yeah, stinks on ice." *Sigh* I despair of finding a show I can love as much as I did X-Files back in the day.
 
2013-02-03 12:34:06 AM  
I recommend House of Cards to watch as well. Not a great series, but pretty solid.

Also it would make me happy that enough people  watch HoF that it marks the beginning of the end of cable's grip on TV along with the expensive rates.

Not sure what to tell you, the first season is brilliant...and I can only assume your family did not like it because you all have the attention span of a newt.

Perhaps, and I'm just throwing this out there..but if you want to have family time...maybe remove the laptop and tablet from the equation.

mindless sheep following the herd, bloating your belly with cheap snacks and wafting down pints of semi warm Light Calorie Anheuser Busch products while you pretend to give a damn. Sadly the truth is you're so pathetic you don't want to stand up and be yourself. You have to put in an appearance at a football party and yell and cheer all the while you loathe yourself and those around you. Conformist dooshbags under the control of the wealthy and powerful. God forbid you spend 5 minutes talking with your neighbor about current events or doing something that will actually benefit someone.

Wow, so many assumptions in a couple of sentences. You sound butthurt. Do you work on the show?

We watched the first three episodes and didn't like any of them. I eventually went and did something productive, and so did the kids, whipping out their devices. I came back out of the kitchen some time near the end of the fourth episode and they were online and asked if I could change the channel because they have no idea how to work our TV set up.

Oh, and it wasn't "family" time (which isn't the right concept with adults on a holiday visit when just being together for a week out of the year or so is "family time") and they didn't pick up their devices until after I'd left the room. The show completely failed to hold our attention or make us like it, and the kids generally watch two or three movies back-to-back and I usually like horror. It was boring to someone in their fifties, someone in their twenties and someone in their thirties. Maybe you have to be older or younger to enjoy it?

Because of the commercials! And the halftime show! Not to mention the two teams...whose names escape me at the moment...consisting of players born and raised in and completely loyal to the cities they fight for! And they selflessly take next to nothing in pay.

Duh.

I watched 12 episodes yesterday and finished the finale today morning. It's a really good show, I enjoyed it quite a lot. I think it kinda meandered a bit during an episode or two but then picked right off. Not the best show I've ever seen but definitely one of the most enjoyable.

I watched Raiders of the Lost Ark again.

Football is so ridiculously homoerotic, I can't stand the backwards idea that manly-men like football and those of us who don't are somehow less masculine. I think it's the opposite: If you get off on watching burly men in tights fondling each other all night before they all take a group shower in the locker room, you're dealing with some buried issues.

If I want to watch men being gay, I'll watch "Torch Song Trilogy" or "Velvet Goldmine" (both favorites, actually), rather than a rousing game of hand-egg feel-up.

If the physical contact of American football is what you call "fondling," you are most likely a Klingon, and Terran sports are not for you.  Go back to watching  Qo'noS's Wildest Bat'leth Duels.  And fans don't watch the group showers unless they have Sunday Ticket, so those don't exactly count.
