Just turned it on and I have to agree. There's usually something redeeming, but its been really rough lately.


Although Chris Christie was good in the news.

Spoiler:
I really like the idea of the MI6 guy floating around, ready to strike at any moment. Perfect timing with Skyfall in theaters, too.
I found it interesting how the married lesbian couple was treated in this episode - like a normal married couple. That they were married wasn't a plot point or angle that the MI6 dude was going to use. I know it isn't new, but it's nice to see how far we've come culturally from Ellen DeGeneres' kiss in 1997.

Meant to respond the other day. I agree. Had they made a big deal out of that, it would have ruined the episode.

Love this show.

I was looking at the TV last night. They had a new Revolution episode preview. Some guy came out, holding a pendant, and said... "Whooeeever Controooools This Peeeeeendant, Controoooools The Woooooorld". I burst out laughing. My g/f did too. I looked at her and mockily repeated what the guy said. And we kept laughing. What a stupid TV show.

Revolution films here in Wilmington. I decided to boycott the show out of principle after the darches shot on campus at UNCW and left all of their horse **** everywhere and refused to clean it up. I'm glad to see I'm not missing anything.

Revolution had potential. But then they had George Lucas write the dialogue or something cause its atrocious.

Your show must be rubbish when you have to advertise Led Zeppelin's music as a reason you should watch the show (they were doing it during the Steeler game)

Yeah if they knew anything they should have advertised that it was going to be Styx music every Steelers fan would have watched than.

I was commenting on the show's quality, not Led Zeppelin (I like Zep).

Just thought it was weird that their main selling point for it wasn't the content of the show, but rather the music.

After you watch a lot of King of Queens episodes you soon realize that Doug is a horrible person.

Big spoiler.
Spoiler:
In the middle of this episode. Since I can remember, I have not cried because of a tv show. But my goodness I am basically balling right now. She and Branson are my favorite characters and her death scene is terrible. :(


I had heard about this, and I'm not even upset, because I heard simply knowing what happens does no justice to seeing it play out. Would you agree with that, obhave?

Any new word on whether it's 100% certain that Maggie Smith is leaving after S3? Saying she's brilliant in this show is an understatement.


I watched it a second time and cried again, so yes I would agree with that.

I am not sure if its 100% yet, but I know I will be very sad to see her leave. She is brilliant in everything she does.

CBS is making me pirate 2 Broke Girls every week. They used to have it on their website, like HIMYM, but I guess it's too popular so they're not 'giving' it away. So I have to illegally pirate something that was free on my tv a day or two before. How does that make sense.

CBS seems to be one of the worst offenders with that... Person of Interest was the same way... they only had clips available so I had to seek out alternative means of viewing the first half of the season I missed.

A co-worker told me that they are really making a mess of the Mentalist... it is on Sunday at 10 now. However, it never starts at 10. It is always delayed the amount of time the football game went over. So it is practically impossible to DVR it unless you just record from 10-12. It's also not available online, but shows up on itunes for $2.99 or $4.99 HD. *This is all what I was told, haven't bothered to verify.

Speaking of kids tv shows Tron:Uprising is pretty good on DisneyXD. The series takes place between the first and second Tron movies.

just bad writing.
