That is weak.

A good one I saw was that Tool had replaced Maynard with the guy from Van Halen as lead singer for the new album.

I liked Sparatcus. But really it was all tits and ass and fighting so not a great case.

But is being run by Bryan Fuller. He did such a good job on Hannibal that I'm really excited for this. Trailer looks pretty mental and stylistic too.

whether the source material is good or not, have Starz ever made a good show?
Party Down

There's loads of Starz shows that have been well reviewed I've never watched. Girlfriend Experience, Outlander, Survivors Remorse and Spartacus I've all heard good things about.

American Gods is pretty ambitious, Loved the book.

Ash vs. Evil dead was very impressive. Here's hoping.

It's a testament to the quality of the writing and acting that such a standard issue sitcom, that's been done a zillion times before, can be one of the best things on TV.
Finished it this weekend. Excellent writing.

The scenes in Ireland were so spot on.

the banter between the 2 of them is great. Don't think the writing is that good beyond that but its enough to carry the show IMO.

I love Girls. I've had to stop reading anything Dunham ever says IRL though because she's such an obnoxious moron. Thought Sunday nights episode was the weakest of the season though.

:thumbs: Just finished it off. i'll be thinking about that one for a while. netflix did good.
the rape was horrific, and the suicide was gruesome. was really surprised that they showed so much of both of them but i guess when you don't have to answer to network executives you can show what you want.
the soundtrack was very good too. lots of 80's stuff.

now i need something else to watch. any suggestions?

I enjoyed it, touch far fetched maybe but it's homeland so par for the course. Yeah they probably had to kill of Quinn, couldnt have had him hobbling around the place for another season

in this season alone he survived getting shot by yer man who came to the cabin to kill him,
and the stake out house being blown up. He was starting to look pretty unkillable. So is the president working for the Russians or what
