Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead

I’m going to be honest and say that I think the 2nd of half of this season of The Walking Dead wasn’t that great. It wasn’t bad but I liked the first half much better.

On the other hand, Game of Thrones is back and oh man, it’s as good as ever. I love how every line of dialogue has so much meaning and purpose (whether it’s truthful, or more often than not deceitful). I don’t know, just the way they speak, it’s very enthralling. And they REALLY know how to keep you excited for the next episode.

LOST Finale

Well, LOST ended last night. Don’t know quite what to make of it, I just know the journey is over, and it kind of feel like a journey. And I don’t think the point was to figure out what the island was or to answer every mystery but just to follow the characters’ stories.

SPOILERS AHEAD. DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED THE FINALE.

Chuck is Better Than Ever

So I finally caught up to the first 3 episodes from the new season of Chuck, and I gotta say it’s better than ever. There were several moments where I laughed out loud and I always take that as a sign of a good show, because most shows rarely make me do that. And the ratings were pretty good too so that’s a relief to Chuck fans. To think, Chuck was was in danger of getting cancelled last year. If you didn’t know fans organized a huge “Save Chuck” campaign and NBC listened by green lighting 13 episodes. But since NBC primetime is in the crapper, I read sometime ago that they’ll probably give Chuck a full season. If anything it’s just nice to look at Yvonne Strahovski.

NBC Coverage of French Open 2009 Men’s Semifinals SUCKS ONCE AGAIN

See my rant last year about NBC’s POOR coverage of the French Open semi-finals here. Well NBC sucked it up once again this year. As tennis fans know, Federer is arguably the most popular tennis player, despite being ranked #2. He is on the brink of making history, going for his 14th major to tie Pete Sampras and the career grand slam. NBC had exclusivity which means no other channel could air or live stream the French Open men’s semifinals today. Their coverage today was also limited to just a 10 AM to 1 PM time slot. What do they decide to do?

Instead of airing the 5th set of Soderling vs. Gonzalez live and then covering Federer v. Del Potro, they decide to air a taped replay of Soderling/Gonzalez. So there was NO live coverage of Federer’s semifinal match in the US. NBC, you suck. You suck so much, it’s ridiculous. Your tennis ratings probably suck because you air taped replays, packed with commercials, of matches people don’t want to see. If you can’t cover the tournament properly, then don’t cover it all you jackasses!

Top 10 Reasons to Watch New Season of Battlestar Galactica

The fourth and final season of Battlestar Galactica will be starting on April 4 on the SciFi channel. You know I got a lot sh*t for liking this show early on because having never watched the show, people’s first impression is that it’s scifi and dorky. But a lot of people are watching it now, even those traditionally not into scifi. Despite the name, the main focus of the show is NOT on spaceships.

Anyway, the cast appeared on David Letterman to do a Top 10 List. Reason #5 was pretty funny:

Heroes Getting Boring?

Is is just me or is Heroes getting a little dull? Maybe it’s the commercials that are bugging me because I hate waiting through commercials. With all the new characters, each episode jumps all over the place and it feels really disjointed. I understand they’re trying to advance the story of each character in parallel but it doesn’t work. Even though it’s all over the place, oddly it still feels like the overall plot is moving pretty slow.
