It better come with actual blue meth if I'm paying that much for it. Fucking hell I could eat for a month with all that money!
If I like it, It's probably awful.

That is so much noodles you'd literally just shit and piss noodles, and nothing else.

Up to Episode 3 of Season 3 of Parks and Rec now.
Pretty much an entire season in two days. Not bad.

True Blood endeth:

The hit show TRUE BLOOD will end its run in 2014, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. Consisting of ten episodes, the previously announced seventh season will launch next summer.

“TRUE BLOOD has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,” noted Lombardo. “Alan Ball took the books by Charlaine Harris, assembled a brilliant cast led by the magnificent Anna Paquin in the role of Sookie Stackhouse, and crafted a show that has taken its many devoted fans on an unforgettable journey. Alan passed the baton to Brian Buckner, who led our fantastic writers and crew in crafting a spectacular sixth season, and he will lead us through the seventh and final season of this amazing show. Together with its legions of fans, it will be hard to say goodbye to the residents of Bon Temps, but I look forward to what promises to be a fantastic final chapter of this incredible show.”

“From the moment I read Charlaine’s books, I thought there was potential for something really special,” says Alan Ball. “Then our amazing writers, cast and crew brought her world to life in a way that exceeded my wildest expectations. I’m deeply grateful to HBO for being true partners and collaborators, and, of course, to the viewers who chose to spend Sunday nights in Bon Temps with us.”

“I feel enormously proud to have been a part of the TRUE BLOOD family since the very beginning,” says Brian Buckner. “I guarantee that there’s not a more talented or harder-working cast and crew out there, and I’d like to extend a personal heartfelt thanks to them for their dedication and tenacity over the years, especially this past year, as I stepped into a larger role. Thank you also to HBO for their unwavering support and of course to Alan Ball, whose genius enabled all of us to share in this incredible journey. Finally, a huge thank you to the most passionate fans in television. As we take a final walk through Bon Temps together, we will do our very best to bring Sookie’s story to a close with heart, imagination and, of course, fun.”

I'm glad True Blood is coming to an end....and not surprised. Ratings are down and it just isn't as much fun as it used to be. Hopefully it'll go out with a bang next year.

So what crap event stopped Dexter being shown this week? 3 episodes left and they can't even maintain a regular schedule. No wonder so many shows get cancelled due to low ratings, nobody can ever be sure when they're on!

Personally, I loved this latest series. Easily my favourite since the first one.

Hmm, bit of a shame but it does feel like time. I do like True Blood but they do seem to be missing several good opportunities for it, in terms of storyline.
