We'll combine them this year.

Looking forward to Justified next week.

Saw Django the other night, loved it.

Django was incredible and funny and awful and thought provoking. Classic Tarantino.

Can't wait for Justified! That is by far my favorite show on TV.

Justified was probably my favourite show of 2012. Very much looking forward to its return.

Saw an article about Arrested Development coming out May 4. All 14 episodes will be released on Netflix at the same time. Can't wait.

Cougar Town is coming back on TBS instead of ABC. Great comedy. Justified has been my favorite since season one as most of you know. Looking forwrd to Breaking Bad whenever that returns (as most on here are as well).

Suits is pretty awesome. I just asked my wife to jog my memory of shows coming back in January, she yells out Smash! Meh, women.

Homeland season 1 was outstanding. Season 2 was a dropoff. Still a good show but it's starting to become like 24, which makes sense I guess since the showrunners are from 24. I'd consider is a slightly above average show with great acting.

I'll give The Americans a shot since FX has a good track record.

I wouldn't say LIncoln was bad by any means, I just didn't think it was entertaining, save a couple LOL moments.

The two movies I've wanted to see most (Silver Linings and Zero Dark Thirty) still aren't in a theater around here.

Two shows I'm looking forward to most in the next few weeks are Cougar Town and Archer.

It goes without saying Swamp People is an awesome ahow. If they could only get Elizabeth to stop talking about her Daddy every other sentence, and let Kristy shine would be nice :)

I really like that show.

Here's my question. From that article:

Those bundles are core to today’s TV ecosystem. And the TV guys insist that consumers really don’t want “a la carte” programming, because if they do, the channels/shows they like today will end up costing much, much more.


Alright, how much? I'm waiting to see someone put a specific dollar amount. Say I want ESPN, FSN and the Food Network in HD. That's it. Maybe that's only $25 a month. If I can get that, I'd pay.

Game of Thrones on HBO is my pick... A twisted tale with tons of intrigue, deceit, and some flesh for good measure...

I enjoyed it too. I'm a big Kristen Bell fan.

Counting down the days until "The Walking Dead" returns.

I saw "Jack Reacher" over the holidays. I thought it was a fun action film. Cruise is a goofy bastard but he makes fun movies. I almost always like his action flicks.

GOT is fantastic, if a little hard to follow sometimes 8-) But not back until March 31.

TWD is Feb 10

I like Larry David, I think Curb Your Enthusiasm is great (season 9 is still on the back burner though). He's doing a movie for HBO that doesn't sound all that good lol. I believe the only other movie he did was Sour Grapes in the 90's. Not good. I think he wrote that one but wasn't in it. His HBO movie stars, besides himself,
Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Bill Hader, Kate Hudson, Phillip Baker Hall, Danny McBride, Eva Mendes, Amy Ryan, and JB Smoove (great as Leon in Curb). The plot:

former marketing executive at a start-up electric car company Nathan Flomm (David) who, after losing a fortune due to a petty argument with his boss (Hamm), is publicly humiliated for walking away from his 10% of a company now worth billions. Ten years later, his marriage over and reputation ruined, Nathan has changed his identity and lives a simple life on a small island off the coast of Massachusetts under the new name of Rolly DaVore. But when his former boss shows up to renovate his summer mansion, Nathan vows to seek his revenge and drive his nemesis off the island.

Larry David did a Woody Allen movie a few years ago, never saw it but it looked like he played a similar character to his character (himself) in Curb. Big fan of Curb so I'm obviously hoping season 9 gets made.
