I realize how the tv season goes and the importance of sweeps and all that. But it's really crap to go multiple weeks without new a episode, have a new one and then go back to a repeat.

I watched the pilot of Zombieland, based on the movie of the same name, on Amazon. I think it is free for anyone to view now, and eventually, if picked up, it will air on Amazon Instant Video.

I haven't seen the movie, but the show seemed to be a comedy with zombies in it. It was OK, not great. The opening scene was probably the best part of the episode.

It's on amazonoriginals.com

That was the movie. A scare-comedy about zombies.

Mad Men was really good last week. Don's reactions to people, especially Pete, are great.

OMG this made my day! Nobody is going to know what I'm talking about, but Guillermo Del Toro is going to make an adaption of the manga/anime series Monster!!!

http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/04/25/guillermo-del-toro-to-develop-manga-series-monster-for-hbo-with-doctor-who-and-sherlock-writer?abthid=5178c0271d5e81ed1f00004d

Everyone do yourself a favor and watch the anime. It's nothing like a traditional anime, and it's more like a tv show that happens to be animated. The company that put out the dvd never published the full series so the only way to watch the whole series is Itunes, the expensive Japanese import, or this link:

Hopefully, if the shows does well on HBO, they will release the rest of the box sets for the anime. I also hope they don't deviate too far from the anime because it truly is a masterpiece.

Does anyone here watch Dr. Who? Just curious. Some monsters may look funny, but storytelling is brilliant.

That was a pretty mundane ending for The Office.

I liked the episode overall, but I'm sick of the Jim/Pam story line.

I think there are only 3 more episodes left.

I was a huge fan of the Tom Baker episodes from way back when. Just brilliant stuff. The guy after him was OK.

My wife watches How I Met Your Mother.

It seems almost to be an unintentional parody of a sitcom: People on the laugh track laughing at stuff that is staggeringly unfunny.

That might be the best way I could ever define it. I've tried to watch it. I'm about 20 reruns in over the last year plus. Many of my friends love it and obviously alot of people on this board. I've never so much as cracked a smile at this crap. The unreal obvious laugh track I think has something to do with it, it takes away from what might be good jokes, but I think that show, its characters and its writing is horrible. Barney's "Legend...wait for it.....dary" wow, what a hilarious catch phrase. I know, because the audience that sounds exactly the same from the 50s Flintstones cartoons laughed at it. So its gotta be funny

HIMYM wasn't too bad last night. Only two more episodes to go.

But nowt he rumor is he may not meet the mother this season, and right before they show here, the season ends and she'll be revealed first episode next season.
