Call me crazy, especially talking about a show like this on this board, but here it goes. I have watched the last five episodes of Fashion Police because my wife watches it. I guess it just celebrated it's 100th episode, so its been on a couple of years (since 2010).
The three regulars on there are total losers and so uninteresting, but lemme tell you, 79 year old Joan Rivers is top notch.
The one liners she brings in rapid fire sucession has me busting out laughing at least a few times every episode. Funny, sharp and her timing is spot on. She is hilarious fella's, I am tellin ya.
Funny funny funny, and quite frankly shocking. Watch ten minutes of it and you'll see the one line barbs she tosses out at the Hollywood elite, and she takes no prisioners and spares no one..
Example...in critueing someones dress she syas...“it's busier than Jerry Sandusky backstage at [the] Kids’ Choice Awards.”
"If Justin wants a Beaver I'll sit on his face"
On gay men? They could stay, but not without some jabs. She called them "the best goddamn audience in the world, because they laugh at anything, they're so stupid!" Needless to say, they laughed, and we all laughed.
After winning Celebrity Apprentice, she claims she's supposed to pitch new TV shows. Her ideas: "The Price Is Right with Winona Ryder" and "The Deadliest Snatch" with Snooki.
Of course reading these one liners and actually watching her deliver them is night and day. Check her out.

Wasn't crazy about the Dexter season finale- easily my favorite show and maybe my expectations were too high. I don't know if this was the last year, if not I can't see them doing more then one more. Just about everything is out of the bag now. Next year I could see the story line being partly about Hannah coming back in the picture and maybe Angel taking up where LaGuarata left off.

Just finished Dexter, I thought LaGuerta was going down but I thought at Dexters hands not Debra's.
We rented Lawless and need to watch it tonight (due back tomorrow). I will watch Homeland finale tomorrow night. At the end of the first season I remember Carrie before going under (on the operating table) she told someone to "remind me about the color purple" and unless I missed it, she never came back to that. Perhaps in the finale she will, we'll see. I guess some of you already have.

I can't stand Skyler.
Guys on here call me crazy but I Fast Forward almost every scene Skylar is in. I can't stand the character. I really really enjoy the show and feel I haven't missed much. Others disagree, but if you can't stand her just FF, ain't no big thang.
All she does is she eats, she bitches and she'll use the drug money when she feels she needs to for her purposes, and when she doesn't need to, she judges her husband unmercifully on how he makes that very money she uses (to give to her boss or buy a car wash).

I fast forward all the scenes with Hank, that condescending prick. Feel pretty confident I'm not missing anything. I fast forwarded all the scenes in Sopranos with Carmela, too. Same show either way imo.
At any rate, looks like some secret acrimony forcing Glen Mazzara off Walking Dead. I thought he had a more interesting run than Darabont, but I'm hoping Kirkman will just take it on now that he's got his feet wet in TV. That last episode he wrote was really strong. Sidenote, I wasn't huge on the big issue #100 of TWD, but that book is on fire now.

I am hoping someone more interweb savvy can help me with this
I didn't have time to watch it this fall so I DVRed Sons of Anarchy. Somehow my DVR skipped the next to last episode. I didn't notice until I was about 7-8 episodes in and I cannot watch this far and then have to wait to see how it ends. Can anyone recommend where I might be able to see this episode online?
If this somehow goes against the rules on RealGM I apologize and feel free to edit or delete this post. Thanks guys.
