My TV confessions:
I've never watched a single episode of Breaking Bad or Sons of Anarchy.
I have no interest in Person of Interest.
The Wire completely failed to hold my attention after the first season.
I will watch about any bad Canadian Sci-Fi that comes along.

Not really surprised that the Bills gave our O-line fits... Their D-Line has pretty much brutalized every QB (except Geno Smith??) they've faced this season.
Tom Brady: ......3 sacks....9 hits... 1 INT
Cam Newton: ..3 sacks...9 hits... 1 INT "mobile" QB
Geno Smith: ...0 sacks....2 hits... ...

It's a lot harder to think of comedies with really great endings.

| Music Board|| re: What happened to Natalie merchant? - yurintroubl on 10/29/13 at 5:20 am|
She kinda went the route a lot of female singers do when they are approaching 40 - Got married and had a kid. Took time off from music and major touring, wrote a couple children's books and did a handful of small venue spoken word-type shows.
Pretty sure she started to record again recently.

There was a show on FOX a couple years back that only lasted a couple seasons called John Doe. Pilot really hooked me on that one.
Also liked Keen Eddie. Stylistically, it had a Layer Cake/Lock Stock.../Guy Ritchie kinda vibe... Started on FOX but was quickly shelved then made its way to Bravo ...
| Movie/TV Board|| re: Greatest ever Pilot Episodes - yurintroubl on 10/20/13 at 11:06 am|
Game of Thrones
I also thought Fringe and Alias started out very well... Maybe not as much BANG as the above, but enough to get me hooked instantly.
Firefly would have been AWESOME if they had actually aired the pilot episode first.
