    I talked to a guy who got mixed up with that crowd briefly and unintentionally. It's not hollywood but it's fucking ridiculous.

    I've lived my life like that for a long time, and that's the only way I can describe it. But I also quit the lifestyle recently so Yay.

    Exactly. Otherwise, I suppose it's not a bad show. It reminds the public that even criminals are still people.

    That's why it's perfect, they're so personable and you love them but they do fucked up things...but it's all for a cause.

    ^Agreed. Probably the most epic battle ever on the small screen.

    Just finished the 3-pt series of The Hatfields and McCoys. Thought it played out well, had that raw feel, great landscape visuals etc. Not that made for TV cheesy fake stuff. Overall, imo one of the better mini-series you'll see. Underneath all the mocking and trashy reputation that we've grown accustom to with this fued...it was truly a very sad story in all aspects.

    I love Pawn Stars. I missed the 3 hour special of The Hatfields and mcCoys that was on Monday. Damn. I hate when a miss the beginning of episodes of shows that might be interested in.

    Recently started watching Futurama again from the beginning, never really went through it chronologically before.

    I fucking love that show.

    Finished watching season 1 of Once Upon A Time - pretty solid show and neat direction. Mystery show focused primarily on fairy tale characters - the majority of which don't remember who they really are due to a curse the Queen cast upon their realm that sent them into 'our' world.

    Starting up Grimm next.

    Even though I've seen all the seasons, I still watch "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" every few days.

    Other than that, Sons of Anarchy has been pretty good so far. (I'm up to season 2)

    So yeah.... Second season of Game of Thrones was pretty much the best thing ever. I'd say it surpassed the first. Gonna be a long wait for the next season.

    Ye i cant wait until next season. Best HBO series since Deadwood and Rome, and might even surpass those when it's all said and done ... which im guessing will be 5+ seasons at the least.

    What makes Game of Thrones so amazing to you guys? I'm up to episode 9 on the second season and I pretty much fall asleep at least once per episode, waiting for it to get good.

    Hold on .... did you fall asleep during episode 9? Season 2 started off a bit slow but boy did it go out with a bang.

    The show flows smoothly, has a great story along with some top notch acting. What is there not to like about it?

    I'v never read the books, but im loving the series so far.

    No offense, but why the fuck do you keep watching it then? It's an HBO series, not a Tarkovsky flick; you're not really going to get something deeper or more meaningful out of it. If you don't like it, then quit watching. Unless, secretly, you do like it and you just enjoy being difficult...
