That was a really good episode last night. I have enjoyed the other episodes this year, but I think I laughed the most on this last one. That Natasha wasn't as great as some of the other people they have had, she struggled a bit, but it was still good.

The racist google search bit was gold. I always thought Natasha was a bit overrated... that always happens with female comics that aren't terrible looking. Amy Schumer is in the same vein. She's not very funny and is so full of herself because Dolph Ziggler threw her a bone.

Why the hell is this season of Person of Interest so damn fragmented? I understand not showing new episodes when the NCAA was going on but no excuse for a repeat tonight.

From what I've listened to (I think she was on Stern) he liked her, tweeted her, came to a club to see her, they had drinks and sex that night, she said he was too "athletic" in bed and his body was too perfect so she dumped him. She sounded like a pretty full of herself terrible person while talking about it. It's just like lady you're cute, especially for a comic, you're not amazing looking.

The Office wasn't too bad this week. Nice seeing the end coming.

I think there are only 3 or 4 episodes left.

That's awesome.

I read the other day that there are talks about a spin-off of Breaking Bad revolving around Saul Goodman, called "Better Call Saul." While most spin-offs don't do all that well, I could see that making it. Saul is a tremendous character.

Vikings anyone? I am loving this show. Sure, it may be better on like an HBO or something...but I don't have HBO so maybe that is why I love it! Some of the characters are so well acted too.

The guy who played the old Earl's right hand man was real good. Made you hate him. Then the way he died was pretty good too, haha.

Amazing Race
Spoiler:
With golf running long, I missed some of the episode. But the Battaglia brothers are cleaning up, which is good for hockey. Bates even wore his Hurricanes t-shirt on this leg. It made me uncomfortable to watch Chuck belittle his wife for two weeks. Ugh. Ugliness. Glad they are going home. Next to go? The obnoxious Youtubers.


During the episode, they showed a preview for an episode of Hawaii-Five O...where they sneak one of the cops into...North Korea, with help from Jimmy Buffett. Um, why would a police officer ever need to sneak into North Korea? I've never seen an episode of the show, but does this sort of thing happen all the time? And it sounded like Buffett had been on there before? Eek.

I'm watching it. I didn't get to watch last night yet, but so far, the show has been pretty good. Like you said, probably could be better with a budget from HBO or something, but still History has done a great job and I'm really enjoying it.

I made the mistake of googling Ragnar and reading about him so now I know how it's going to end. But even so it's still a very well done show.

Coming down the stretch for "traditional" network TV finales.

- Looking forward to the Office. Now that the documentary has hit, it is fun watching the show again. Interested to see how it ends. You can see the story lines that are going to wrap up forming.

- HIMYM, looking forward to finally see who the mother is. It is finally time that they should be getting really into that story line.

- I've been watching Community. Other than the puppet episode, I've actually enjoyed most of this season. It was a show I couldn't wait to finish up because it got really weird, but now I'm enjoying it again. Will be interesting to see what they do.

I was going to be OK for the puppet episode and then they started singing too. Near the end I said to my wife out loud..."this episode is really dumb." The only time we really laughed was during the outtakes when the Dean's nose got pulled off and he was talking about how much skin came off.

Chevy Chase quit the show right? Is that the reason only the puppet version was involved?

I have completely dropped Mad Men from my watch list. It can't compete with Game of Thrones and I don't really go back to watch things.
