Is it just me, or is South Park complete and utter bollocks these days?

Episode 7 of Dexter is rather good too.


Indeed.

Monday's sneaky torrenting makes it my favourite day of the week :)

This series of Dexter is confounding my "who is going to end up on Dexter's table at the end?" Dead Pool. Everyone keeps dying so fast it's hard to keep up.

The sneaky money was on Isaac but I think that's too obvious now. I'm putting my coin on either Quinn or Laguerta with Dexter's sister as a rank outsider...

Dexter has been pretty good so far i think i'm enjoying this season mainly because of Yvonne Strahovski though :)

Utterly brilliant.


Its probably THE best show on TV. It was inspired by True Blood, which I will probably get slayed for mentioning here, which is still a good show, but Walking dead is way better haha.

Let's do this purely from a numbers point of view.

Obscure book series gets turned into the surprisingly good tv show True Blood: 2008.

The Walking Dead comic book begins: 2003.

Ok before my WD comic geek self asks you wtf your on about, I have to ask were you so high that you made it up or are you so gullable that you believed what one of your stupid friends said?

WD has been around a lot longer and the stuff your seeing on this show now was written years before True Blood showed its face.

I seriously suggest you do some homework about the comic before you make another silly comment about another show inspiring a massivly superior one.

Season 1 is a little slow but just sets up the characters. Season 2 is when it gets pretty serious, season 3 is seen as a little weak but I think its a strong showing of the characters, and season 4 throws the fan at the shit. I haven't seen season 5 yet.

At risk of offending your comic book geek...A little 'homework' shows the True Blood series of books (Sookie Stackhouse series) were first published in 2001 while Walking Dead comics were first published in 2003.
I'm not saying that it was inspired by the True Blood, I can't find any evidence to show that, and I don't care either way (I love both shows and haven't read any of the books), I just don't like to see the comic book elitism dismiss the idea, despite the possibility it could be true.

Still, my point is that Tru Blood didn't influence Walking Dead in anyway from comic to tv. They are so far apart, the comparisson is stupid.

Inspiration and influence doesn't necessarily mean they have to be similar. How many Death/Extreme metal bands claim to be inspired and influenced by Iron Maiden and Judas Priest? If it was the same, it'd have been copied. Most people need to hear/see/read something in order to be inspired to create something of their own.

Started catching up on Homeland after letting myself get miles behind. Good stuff!
