silvervial: 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.


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.

I don't care for football one way or another. What I find stupid is how you can't say superbowl on tv or radio advertising.

Superbowl Sunday is the perfect time to go out to dinner and a movie.

antidisestablishmentarianism: Action, as long as we can skip season 2.


The second half of season 2 was heavy with action. Character development is important to the action having meaning.

Netflix, Hulu plus, and a decent DVD collection. I think I'll be ok.

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.

Dancis_Frake: certainly not a farking Buzzfeed list, for sure.


Oh.  Well here's a Gawker page that is ALMOST THE EXACT SAME THING.

Nice to see that the writers at FuzzBeed are original.

RY28: I could get into AMC if there were actually any American Movie Classics to be seen on their channel . But I'm guessing they will have something else on instead.

Tat'dGreaser: Or you could just watch the Super Bowl like a normal person

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.

RogermcAllen: if_i_really_have_to: 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.

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 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.

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.

MagSeven: If your team is in it, you care. If not, commercials. But most of those are already online so I'm going with BEER!


"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!

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

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


I don't think action properly describes the Super Bowl.

Really, why do people give a shiat about this thing?

If you have Netflix, the entire series of House of Cards is on. All 13 episodes. I've watched 5 of them so far and loving the series.

Somehow Maggie gets hotter every single episode. It almost defies physical laws.
