Looks like the final episodes of Breaking Bad will be released on 02/24.  Can't wait!  Would like to start up Sons of Anarchy or Dexter next.

Son of Anarchy is enjoyable

I thought I may have seen it mentioned, but is anybody watching HELIX?

I've been DVRing the show and last night finally sat down to start watching. I got about 20 minutes into it and it was so slow developing I shut it off in favor of watching my DVRd Pawn Stars.  Does anybody have any thoughts on Helix?  I was hoping for something good to serve as a fill in of sorts until TWD is back on.

Also, did anybody watch the two episodes of The Assets that ABC ran? I actually enjoyed that show and was a little irritated it got canceled after two of six episodes aired.  I guess my cup of tea on shows isn't exactly the same for everyone else.

Go back a page for more discussion on Helix.  If you give it to end of E2 you won't be disappointed.  3rd episode has some good twists and new mysteries.  I haven't watch 4 yet.  Its a lot like Lost without the character building flashbacks and weaker actors, but not a bad filler as we wait for AD to return.

Anyone watching Intelligence?  I've seen the first few episodes and it's not bad.  It's not TWD or Justified, but it's ok.

Just started in on Breaking Bad this weekend.  Good stuff so far, though I'm not sure how he's going to make it past the first season.

My wife and I watched the very first episode last week on Netflix since the show has been raved about by everyone.  I'm certainly curious to see where they're going to go with it.

Started watching True Detective too.  Dark and a little hard to get in to at first - but its getting better and better and I am sure the payoff will be well worth it.  Just watched the latest episode - Hart's (Woody) youngest daughter - in present time - is the same actress who plays Lizzie on TWD.

Billy Dee "Lando" Williams confirmed for this season of "Dancing With the Stars".

Someone must have told them about his move at the Battle of Tenab.  :D

Started and finished True Detective. Some of the best dialogue in a series since The West Wing and Breaking Bad.

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

I'm not a HUGE fan, and mostly because of that...  I think there's some drinking game in there where the difference between what he says he'll get and what Ebay's saying he'll actually get could be used to determine who drinks what, and how much.

His Star Wars one that was on recently, wow...

I don't watch the show much though because of that, but that's just me.  I check it now and again, like that episode recently where he had all the 12-backs and stuff.

Watch it all the time but it has to be taken with a grain of salt. It's set up like Storage *cough* Jarrod Megos *cough* Wars , Storage Hunters, Pawn Stars, flip this & flip that etc.. I like some of the nostalgia toys & seeing what is out in collections/hoarding land plus seeing my good friend David Gaule working with Jordan.

It's a reality popcorn show. Oh, those 12 bks...   ;D

Yeah, that's why I check it now and then...  Just basically to look at toys I remember. :)  I'd have preferred something a little more realistic on the pricing and toy dealing...  There is a real world out there of course, but it is still fun to look at stuff and just ignore the prices.

Saw some Joe stuff...  Always love seeing Joe stuff.

Sometimes in the background you see people have stuff like Starcom or Battlebeasts in the package...  That's fun.
