Looking at buying a Wii U. If I buy one without a gamepad, what am I looking at to procure a gamepad? On ebay the lowest is like $120. It seems like my best bet would be just to buy a refurb'd one from Nintendo for $200. Any input would be appreciated....

So I just finish season 4 of Dexter which is the one with John Lithgow for anyone that needs reminding. The show is pretty awesome at this point. I usually don't care for law enforcement dramas, but Dexter and the Wire are the exceptions.
My thoughts so far -
1. Either writers/show runners from ...

So in 2013 it had 0 income, 0 expenses. Questions:

First, I love the setting and story behind the game. The is the first game I was ever really creeped out while playing. Splicers singing Jesus Loves Me sends a chill up my spine. I play with lights on. I get a slight chuckle out of the political theme of the game with capitalism being the root cause...

Watched bits a pieces as teenager but never really got into it.
Enjoyed the series for the most part. I favored the mythology episodes over the monster of the week episodes. I enjoyed the conspiracy. The show as a whole ranks somewhere below B5, BSG, SG1, DS9 for me as far as scifi tv series.
