Anyone still watching Franklin & Bash now that Heather Locklear has joined the cast?

Recorded it on Wednesday but haven't sat down to watch it yet.

I saw the last half of the first hour, and the first segment of the 2nd hour. Will have to dvr a reair as it didn't save the 2nd hour (in favor of Graceland/Burn Notice last night).

Spoiler:
they change up the sets by having Pindar burn down the house...

True Blood had a relatively entertaining throwback to blood omen: legacy of kain (ps1) with a sucking blood via the long distance.

So that naked survivalist show. That's kind of weird.

I did end up watching the first episode of True Blood, it was worthwhile. I'll probably watch last night's episode as well.

I'm not going to watch it, but it did remind me to go back and read the book again. I barely even remember it.

Yessir. I'll give anything Stephen King a shot. Is this supposed to be a long running show or a 1-2 season "not so mini series"?

Since you read the book, are there any Dark Tower references in it? If so, what are they?

Spoiler:
Very minor ones. The number 19 makes several appearances, and a couple of related characters are named Randall and Roland (but don't have any other similarity to the other characters)

The best part was when the guy was getting pissy about the girl implying he was full of crap while he had just been lying about sliding down a small hill. The guy was kind of a whiner.

There were definitely parts that came across as fake, though.

went to bed early, so i missed most of the episode. i just thought it was just a really funny contrast to the jesus dude.

i imagine the cross section of nudists and survivalists will lead us with some very grizzled looking chicks on that show.

caught up on Burn Notice. Looking like they are going to drag out the season.

Also, watched the 6/16 ep of Falling Skies last night. This season is seeming better than the last one so far.

I can't remember exactly what the show is, but are the people naked and with no supplies at all?

Now that I have all 12 episodes of Mad Men on my DVR....

Are people more or less interested in the show, after watching this season?

About the same. It wasn't the best season ever, just very solid and enjoyable. The last episode had a "series finale" type feel, though I believe there is one more season.

i've seen all of them except last night's. i think it's been a good season. not as good as last year, but last year was exceptional. i certainly wouldn't consider it a disappointment. so "same" is the answer to your question.

Naked & Afraid. yeah. they drop 2 strangers off in a remote location, take their clothes and everything, and leave them alone for 3 weeks.

I guess it's more of a primal type man against nature survival experience. Plus, when you are in the jungle, you kind of take things like shoes for granted.

The other day I found two vhs tapes full of episodes of The Wonder Years that I must've taped from a Nick-at-Nite marathon. Jackpot. What a show.
