Anyone else catch R5D4 commit suicide on Conan O'Brien? Pretty funny.

I guess since Letterman is out, Conan has to pick up the slack by throwing things out the window.

Has anyone else watched the show Airplane Repo on Discovery?  I swear, I think I've found my calling in life!  :D

Is anyone watching "The Man in the High Castle" on Amazon? Admitting that I like most everything by Philip K. Dick, so I may be biased, but I watched the pilot tonight and I'm hooked. I imagine it'll be just as confusing as anything else by Dick, but so good at the same time.

Forgot about this until you mentioned it, but the trailer looked cool.  I will definitely check it out.

Just finished The Man in the High Castle.  Excellent show!  When the hell is Season 2 due?!

How about The Leftovers on HBO?  Its a little slow but I sorta like where it is going.
bump...I really love this show, this last season kicked season 1 which wound up being really good by the end

HBO picked up Season 3 which will be the end

What I like most about the show is that it is so unsettling and really really makes me think about life, death and all of that jazz.  If you liked Lost, I'd give it a try.  It's not the same show at all but it totally messes with you and has some cool threaded plots much like Lost had

I've kind of been sucked back into the Sci Fi channel and started watching the Expanse.  The first two episodes have aired, and the pilot is readily available on Youtube.  It looks pretty good so far.

Netflix releases Full House teaser

Whoever they hired to voice Uncle Jesse sounds just like Dave Coulier!

That's impossible since Dave Coulier is dead.

I started watching this and had my DVR set to record the series.  I got through the pilot after two sittings and then started on the second episode and watched about 15 minutes before I was bored to tears and cut it off.  I was really hoping for something that would suck me in, but no such luck.

I gotta say as much as I loved Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul has been an extremely fun look at the Saul/Mike backstory.   Love the little Breaking Bad cameos as well...great stuff

^Check out the BCS Insider podcasts sometime. Really good discussion & info from the people that make the show. (They did these for Breaking Bad, too.) Vince Gilligan seems like just the nicest guy in the world.

Season finale next week.  Its been a great season 2.

I really think they should call the show, "Better Call Mike".  I think his backstory and adventures are a hell of a lot more fun than Saul's at this point.  Glad to see he is getting more involved with some punks to add some fun to the show.  I like the Saul story lines, but can't wait for them to get back to Mike each time.  I can't wait for the two of them to get really mixed up together.

I wasn't a film school major, so I can't really put all my thoughts together well on this, but I love the "cinematography" with this show.  Some of the camera angles are really cool.  The way they use music is sweet.  I love the sound effects - this week it was the buzzing fluorescent lights and all the electronics freaking out Saul's brother.  It seems like half art project and half commercial tv serial.
