Anyone watching Toy Hunter every week...I get a kick
At seeing what Jordan finds but man the price he pays or says he pays is bull-honkey.  He said he paid $300 for a MASK Boulder Hill loose with box that at most is worth $150 and said he was going to sell for $500.  And it's every week seething like that...my new favorite game to play is Searching eBay to see what he thinks he'll "get" vs what is reality.  I still like the show don't get me wrong

Canceled.

Travel Channel has been going downhill ever since Anthony Bourdain jumped ship.  And Toy Hunter was interesting to me, but definitely very niche in terms of appeal.

I don't think his amounts are in dollars.

I know very little about the DC world but really enjoyed Gotham tonight.

I thought it was decent.  Not great.  They didn't waste any time horning in as much of the rogues gallery as possible.

Caught the Gotham pilot on Hulu... overall it was not good, but also not bad. Its main weakness was that it suffered from Pilot Syndrome where things are just awkward overall. Second episode will probably better.

Didn't care for the dialogue or most of the cast. Bullock grew on me even though all I see is the dad from Grounded for Life. Not a fan of the OC dude as Gordon. Jada Pinkett Smith had the most interesting character but as I said, the lines were really corny. Cameos were out of control, almost SW Prequel-like in the "LOOK AT THESE CHARACTERS WHO AREN'T CHARACTERS YET!"

Still, I liked it better than what I saw of Agents of SHIELD, so I'll at least give it a few episodes.

I thought Gotham was ok.  Horning in every character possible was a mistake, IMO.  Riddler, Cat Woman, Penguin, Ivy and possibly the Joker, all introduced all at once?  Not the best decision.  Hopefully it'll improve.

Second season premiere of SHIELD was awesome.  Loved the wrecking ball homage.  Also loved that the Absorbing Man had some intelligence to him, rather than the dumb brute from the comics.  Really excellent execution.

My assumption on the so many characters in Gotham was just to say hey everyone look at all the characters you'll get to see in this show going forward. Not that they will do that always. Guess we will see

I don't think I will stick with Gotham much longer ,that episode was painfull to watch, the cop that went up, he had his gun, why didn't he shoot?
I honestly don't know why they keep going back to showing whatever young Bruce is doing, it's not pushing Gordon's story in any way.
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

It's barely holding my attention.  The only character I really enjoy is Gordon's partner.

Seems like I'm the only one, but I think "Gotham" is getting better and better! Very good!

I tried Gotham but didn't get hooked.  I liked The Penguin, and I dug the idea of the Riddler's background and stuff...  I liked it a little bit, just didn't get into it so I quit. :(

I tried watching The Affair and The Leftovers, and both are depressing to the point I can't bother.
