I found them bordering between comical and just plain silly. They can hold my attention though but that's mostly because the Kahleesi (sp?) is wicked hot. And I don't like blondes.
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Clutch, Kamelot and The Ocean for BOA 2014 pls!

Oh, and from getting up to where I am now in the series, I can safely say there's nothing I hate more than Sansa chapters.


Sansa is my absolute favourite. he's not a great writer but he always cracks out the best bits for her chapters, and hers are the ones that give you the most clues as to how the story's going to go. "in real life the monsters win" and "life is not a song" not to mention the way that she develops and lies and uses the society skills she was taught to be her defence.

but after ADWD i just can't get the tyrion appeal. he was just so repulsive in his thinking. could never feel sympathy for a character who acts/thinks like that.

Daenerys is the only character i'd ever come close to calling a "silly bitch" because she's so annoying and convinced of her entitlement.

@Mike i was talking more book. i hate how they gave catelyn's dialogue to robb in episode 1 of season 2.

Just watched Game of Thrones. I liked it. It was entertaining and updated the characters from the first season. As long as thy keep this up, I doubt I will find anything wrong.

Episode 2 has leaked. Not sure if I can stand to wait 2 weeks for a new episode if I get it now though.

After trying Community and Cougar Town, and winning spectacularly with both, I thought I'd give Parks and Recreation a go.
Only one episode in but it may well stay that way forever. What a load of shite.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

DON'T DO IT BRO.

Just about everyone who ever watched that show thought season 1 ranged from subpar to straight up terrible.

It's around early season 2 that the show starts the pick up. It becomes a character comedy, like Community and Cougar Town.

It's just in season 1, all the characters are a bit bland.

just seen this. i doubt this could work very well unless they were given permission for the violence/gore needed. this is more likely to flop more than anything.

According to Variety, Sonar Entertainment and executive producer Larry Kupin are developing "Hellraiser: The Series." Kupin is behind New World, the company that brought us Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II.

Sonar teases the series like this:

One of the most successful (and terrifying) franchises in film history is ready for its weekly television debut. For over 25 years, fans have followed the exploits of an insidious villain named Pinhead, summoned from a nightmarish underworld by an ancient puzzle box. He will seduce you with power and tempt you with fear, until your soul belongs to him. Now, for the first time, a weekly series set in the fantastic realm of Hellraiser will thrill audiences worldwide.

Watched Episode 2 of Parks and Recreation.
Even worse than the first.

I think I'm just going to skip to the final episode and the first episode of Season 2.

American schedules are fucking annoying as hell.

British shit has like 4 episodes and can show regularly each week.

You have 20+ and can't show it every week.

It just totally fucks up the flow of the episodes.
Plus, I like my routine being:
Monday Morning: Dexter
Tuesday Morning: HIMYM
Wednesday Morning: Cougar Town
Thursday Morning: South Park
Friday Morning: Community/It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia/The Office (though that one I need to catch up on..)
