I like the current format. No nudity or sleaze, mosty a fantasy showcase with the great costumes, great girls, and overall mood that draws me in. Music is a big part and it always comes as a surprise to me that acts I don't normally listen to sound GOOD. I would say that focus is more on the pretty constumes than actual lingerie. They say it takes them a full year to make the designs. It's literally a show.


Let me add that I love the themes they come up with. They have a few themes throughout the show and they base the costume designs on those. Like the theme during Rihanna's 'Phresh'. When Alessandra came out with the purple flowers as wings, man, she looked so beautiful. Then Jasmine Tookes right after her with the green umbrella. It's artistic and beautiful.

I understand the show is making a return in 2013? What's the story with that?


Will be exclusively on Netflix. Rumored to be somewhere between 10 and 13 episodes. Possible that it leads into an Arrested Development movie. Guaranteed to be hillarious.

Battlestar Galactica Blood and Chrome is actually pretty good. They waited until the 7th episode to start the "Previously on Battlestar..." :lol: Each webisode is 10-17 minutes, so that isn't really needed...

Caught up mostly on American Horror Story. The story line is getting much better. There was a lull there with the whole Anne Frank story line, but it did set up for some stuff down the road.

This season is stranger, but better IMO than the first. I'm interested to see what turns up with the bloody face stuff in 2012.

Brian and Lowell definitely carry the show and I would add that Antonio (Tony Shaloub) all have funny moments that generally cause for laughs. But I am currently looking for mind-numbing humor and this does it for me. Though, I do find myself hating a few characters with major ease and as such I don't see myself watching much longer.

So, I finally finished watching the 1st season of Homeland. I really like the show in general, but Carrie annoys the crap out of me and seriously detracts from my viewing pleasure. I guess that is part of what makes the show work (the protagonist is not the stereotypical "good guy", but really is a crazy woman, whom we're not sure we should trust), but I can't completely get past it.

It's the opposite of my experience with Breaking Bad and Mad Men. I recognize that the protagonists in those shows aren't good people by any normal definition, but I still like them and root for them to succeed. I recognize Carrie is a good person trying to save lives, protect the country, etc., but I still get kind of happy when she fails.

Surprised this show is still on. I kind of gave up on it after season 1.

Still on and still great to me. I would think anyone who likes the silliness of Arr. Dev. would be into this show.

In that last episode, there was a squirrel that tried to hump everything. It's silly, but that's what makes the show so funny.

raising hope can be a little (and by a little i mean a lot) annoying at times, but its not worthless. it has its moments.

I think the Dewar's commercials are the scariest things on TV (you the ones with the Scottish lady drinking whiskey alone while hurling insults to imaginary people and asking if you're serious). Jesus, she scares the crap out of me.

That's Claire Forlani in those Dewars commercials.

Mallrats came out so long ago.
