For sit com watchers,  the new normal is really good.  On the other hand,  Guys With Kids seems to have a good story,  and decent writing,  but the actors,  their timing and chemistry are so bad that it's unwatchable -  I'll give them another shot in season 2 igf they get renewed because the show seems like it has potential

I take it back, the political overtones of the New Normal have become unbearable

first season was soooooooooooo good (with the exception of maybe a few episodes).  the first episode of season 2 was just awful, i was completely stunned.  but since then it's been great.  episode 3 where brody's day was worse than anything larry david had experienced in curb, my goodness

Dexter has been good this season as well.

and yes, dex has been great.  not one dull moment this season. 

ray stevenson has really done a good job.

Saturday Night Live with Bruno Mars was one of the better episodes I've seen in a while.  Sad Mouse was the best thing on SNL in years.  The Pandora skit was pretty good, and they nailed the debate.

G4 canceled X-Play and Attack Of The Show.

Not that many care.... But I grew up watching Sessler on ZDTV.

The comics rule, as does Marvel Zombies, the first series, it was written by the same guy. Later season of Marvel Zombies don't seem that great.

Louis Ck has been great on SNL so far. "Fun" on the other hand are absolutely terrible.

i was a little disappointed, it didn't seem like he got all that much airtime though I loved the Lincoln bit.  Bruno Mars was better last week IMHO.

Maybe its because Lori was annoying as crap but I didn't like the episode very much. They are also deviating further from the comics. it was sick when they cut Loris gut open . None of it made me care very much.

it's A GRAPHIC show ... just like it's a graphic novel.  and from what i hear, her death was only like two weeks off of what happens in the comics or something along those lines .

i think i'm going to start reading the comics (obviously not jump ahead to ruin the show), just b/c i can't get enough.  one of the execs made a comment along the lines that this show could last for multiple seasons. 

you may be the only person who didn't like that ep.  a quick sweep of twitter/facebook/texts, people are still talking about it - hours after.

also homeland was very good tonight (AGAIN).

It wasn't supposed to be a direct adaptation of the comics anyway.

It was a good episode and if you have read the comics/graphic novels, the TV series deviates off the comics pretty strongly. in the comics, Michonne is with Rick's group at the prison.

I was talking about this with a co-worker and Dead fan. They've killed off a lot of the initial group from the camp, especially with losing 3 characters in the 11/4 episode last night, they'll need to add some new characters soon. So, it would make sense - speculating here - that Michonne, Merle and Blondie all re-connect with the group.
