So much of the writing and character in The Following was terrible last night. Overloaded exposition and nothing overly interesting thematically. I mean, a Poe obsessed serial killer is sort of the easy way out isn't it? Yeah, some good moments, but people watch TV for writing and characters. I could see this one taking a huge ratings drop week after week unless the secondary characters are reallllllly interesting.

Last night's Cougar Town was one of the funniest sitcom episodes I've ever seen. God that show is amazing.

This is my favorite part of the TV year. Shameless and Justified are back, The Walking Dead returns soon. After that Mad Men and Game of Thrones will on the same night, and then Breaking Bad and The Newsroom return!

Agree with most of that (I hate the Newsroom), especially the Mad Men and Game of Thrones lead in to Breaking Bad. 3 of the best shoes on TV right now.

In movie news: Looks like Abrams could be the director of the next Star Wars movie. Not my first choice, but definitely a safe, solid choice. http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/01/24/ ... ium=social

Edit: Apparently Ben Affleck was considered for Star Wars as well, that would have been extremely interesting. http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=99323

Maybe I'm behind the times, but I didn't know Larry was going all Hollywood on us. :)

He actually gets a lot of air time for the trailer. According to his twitter, he was at the premiere last night.

I think Abrams is a good choice for Star Wars. I'm almost sorry he's not writing it too, but Arndt did a great job on Toy Story 3. I just really liked Super 8.

Yea, Abrams is the first positive sign I've come across regarding the new episodes.

Just saw Silver Linings Playbook tonight and it was pretty fantastic. This was the first time I've ever actually liked Bradley Cooper and he and Jennifer Lawrence, and DeNiro were all fantastic. I'll definitely be buying this movie when it comes out on Bluray.

Just saw a commercial for The Walking Dead and it reminded me that Cutty from The Wire is playing Tyreese. Best The Walking Dead TV show thing ever.

Super 8 was very Lucas/Spielberg esque. It was like Stand By Me Indiana Jones with Space Magic. They should have just called it that. I've focus grouped this.

I've watched it. Season 1 is legitimately good, but I thought it went a bit downhill after that.


I cruised through Seasons 1, 2, and first 3 episodes of Season 3 in a week. I didn't think there was all that much of a let down in season 2. Are you watching season 3 right now? It's interesting that between seasons 1 and 2 there were two Game of Thrones characters, both were semi-major characters too.

It seems like Super 8 was a good movie? I never saw it, it kind of looked like a kids movie to me, but it did look intriguing.

It was a kids movie. It was ok, nothing special really.

X-Men: Days of Future Past continues to sound pretty epic. Really looking forward to it.
