Anybody who says they saw that first moment coming is a fucking liar.
Or a time traveller.

What an episode.
Again! :o :o


Considering Jesse figured it out himself a season ago, it wasn't that jaw dropping. It was Walt who talked him out of it after all.

Dexter's coming along nicely. However...

HERE BE SPOILERS FOR YE WHO HAVEN'T SEEN EPISODE NINE:
Vogel is pissing me right off.
"The hair under Zach's table was a genetic match to you."
"That's impossible, I don't have any family. Not anymore".
But what she meant was:
"That's impossible, I don't have any family, except for a psychopathic son, who died in a fire years ago but I never saw the body and was obsessed with that song that was playing when you found Zach dead. Nope. No family at all."

It's amazing how much Dexter was just cast aside and completely overshadowed by the return of Breaking Bad. The final season airing was so badly timed in my opinion. I'm two episodes behind because I completely forgot about it, as I was hyped to shit about the next Breaking Bad episode.




Also, (I'm a fucking man-child, I know) but I was recently introduced to the Avatar cartoon, and it made me wonder why I didn't have shit this good as a kid. Man, this shit is brilliant.
If I like it, It's probably awful.

So, Dexters somewhat interesting so far.


I love the fact that almost all of the male characters keep making stupid decisions, Dexter especially. He's become a proper idiot now, but I guess that's sort of the point.
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Had a morning with Parks and Recreation to give it another go as it hadn't really grabbed me before.

The first series was shit. Really shit, and I only persisted because people said it got better with Season 2.
So, I tried Season 2 a few months later and although there had been a definite improvement (I actually laughed at a few bits) it was still far too patchy so away it went again until I was sufficiently bored and in need of something to pass the time.
I started again with Episode 8, when Ron's ex-wife shows up.




I just finished Episode 15.
It got brilliant.

I hate that season 1 exists because it puts so many people off watching the rest of the show.

The diner scene (the one where Ron's ex turns up and makes him all horny) made me choke on my coffee. :lol: :lol:
