I'm not even sure who Bill Skarsgård is, just saw his name headlining the show, but yeah, Generation Kill in general was spectacular.

What Would Ryan Lochte Do has the potential for being the worst television show ever created.

Watching a sneak peek of "inside Amy Schumer" on demand right now. Who told her that acting like and talking like a whore is funny?

That's like her whole schtick. At least that's what I thought it was. The only stuff I ever have seen her do is all based on sex jokes etc.

Yeah...didn't they start in June/July last year? I think AMC is just trying to draw out the time during which they will be home to two perennial Emmy contenders. They need another hit or two with Breaking Bad ending and Mad Men only having one more year.

seems like almost nothing is new lately, until next week (4/29). well save Deadliest Catch and Survivor. HIMYM, New Girl, Mindy, Criminal Minds, CSI, Grey's, all repeats. Person of Interest probably is too, and Touch is off a few weeks. Hope we can find some time to whittle down Boardwalk Empire - still have 26 eps on the DVR. Those definitely are NOT kid friendly.

It's funny watching Community and seeing the Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christas shows in spring.

I know it's original run was supposed to be in the fall/winter, just still funny.

maybe it was just me, but there were times that i had to put on the subtitles because i could not understand what the people were saying. i have to re-watch epi 2 because i fell asleep. The premise is cool, not too sure about the actual dialogue though. it feels..idk...dumb at times.

Famkes accent was pretty strange, I couldn't understand her at times. You are right about the dialogue being dumb at times, it's pretty hit or miss. I fell asleep during the 2nd episode as well, but read a recap only to discover I didn't miss anything. The ending of ep 2 was pretty cool. Sounds like its a slow burn up through the end, but a lot of people are saying it gets much better as well.

Its being touted as Twin Peaks esque so being slow fits that.
