Caught up on a few shows:

1) 30 Rock: Caught up on entire season. I honestly think this has been a solid season so far. Tracy and Jenna are absolutely fantastic.

2) The Office: Can't wait for this season to end and put the show out of it's misery. Has dropped off tremendously IMO. Honestly, my two favorite characters are the two new kids.

3) Always Sunny: Caught up on entire season. Good so far. I think it is better than last season so far. The last episode was great. Charlie is such a ***** but love him.

4) The League: Haven't seen last episode, but watched first 3. First episode sucked IMO, but the next two were solid. I love when Ralphie comes on at the paintball game. Plan on watching last episode tonight.

5) Walkind Dead: Still need to see last two episodes. Plan on watching tonight at least one of them. I know the spoilers though.

6) HIMYM: Off to a slow start, but I expected that. They need to drag it out. Can't wait for these breakups to end. Looks like only one more. Then hopefully they get into the mother plotline. I think this show needs to end after this season though.

7) Go On: Watched entire season so far. I actually like this show. It's a lot like Community in a way.

The only other show I really watch is the Simpsons. And I saw the first epiosde of American Horror Story. I need to catch up on the other 2. Plan on doing that soon.

I got caught up on HIMYM.

I dunno... it's still OK, but's also kinda lame. I'm sick of Barney trying to screw every girl. And how they portray every female as totally stupid. It's just tired. Some of the jokes still stick, but mostly I see the show go through the motions. The first couple episodes this time made me think I should just quit. I stuck around, but...

Have they announced how many seasons are left?

That's why it just lost it for me. It is the same joke over and over and over for every character. Marshal and Lilly are weird. Ted is like Ross from Friends. Barney just goes after every girl, Robin is a man.

At least the first few seasons, a lot of it was fresh, and they did stick with a story line. Then around season 5, it just started to get a little old. Season 6 sucked IMO, but season 7 rebounded some because they started to get to some key items for how he met the mother. This season will end great IMO, but they are just killing time IMO as well and have little background for these first few episodes.

Again, I'm sticking with it because I did since day 1 and I want to see how it ends.

As for more seasons, the writers are trying to get 1 more, a season 9, but I don't think the entire cast is on board, so if they lose one, I think they end it.

Homeland
Spoiler:
That Hezbollah raid on the tailor's shop was very brash. Not enough security around the building to prevent it? Very odd.

SWAT was on their way, I may be mistaken, but didn't they just have eyes on it at the time? Caught me off guard, that was pretty intense.

Only because Criminal Minds is on after it. I've only caught 1 or 2 shows, but I'm sort of surprised Jeff Kent is still on, given his knee issues he may or may not have been having before. I guess part of it is they want to keep him around so their chance to win is easier.

He had been out of the spotlight for awhile. Easy to forget an athlete's face.

Yea, the only way I would recognize him would be because of a random brain blast.

I've been (although still at work, have to watch tonight).

As for Jeff Kent, yeah, no one knows who he is yet. There was one girl that did, and she continually just poke in conversations that baseball players weren't real athletes, but she got voted off like the 3rd episode, and didn't tell anyone who he was.

Only one or two people know Blair from Facts of Life as well. The one older guy (can't remember his name, he is one of the returning cast) knows who she is, and they openly talk about it when they are alone, but none of the younger people do.

This is the first season I've watched of this since like season 8.

Yea I haven't watched survivor since the Australian one. But since my dad has been living with me he got me into this season

This would be a fun game to play, but it doesn't seem like I would ever have the opportunity to do it. Time to audition for Big Brother or equivalent.

I haven't watched survivor for quite awhile... just got old to me after so many seasons. I did enjoy it for awhile though.
