I watch past tournaments on YouTube. While not comprehensive, people do post full rounds. Don't have YT on your TV? Chromecast is a cheap solution.

Season 3 of Homeland got better with episodes 4 and 5.

 

The first three were tough to get through, even with the anticipation of the new season.

I just wanted to add that last night's episode of Castle was pretty good (for regular network TV).

 

Castle and Beckett always have this dichotomy - she's a pragmatist, and he's always looking for mob connections or black ops or some such. They play off each other well and the show's pretty funny overall just from those two characters and their interplay.

 

In last night's episode Castle's dreams came true and it was hilarious to watch him discover the hidden tomb, and the lost treasure, and all that. I enjoyed it. Usually network TV  I watch as background noise while doing work, but Castle I watch more than "use as background noise" because of stuff like this. Is it otherwise pretty formulaic and blah? Yes. But it has its moments, and last night had more than its fair share.

I am a SiFi nut.

Revolution is one of my favorites now on Wed at 8:00. What would you do if the world really lost all it's power?

The Walking Dead.

Grimm

Sleepy Hollow

Defiance

Haven

Person of Interest

 

I do have the Golf Channel on all the time also.

Yeah, this is probably the wife's and my favorite show.  It is very formulaic, yet unlike a lot of other shows, it hasn't gotten stale for us yet at all.  Even after the "they finally got together" cliche, which usually ends up being a death sentence.  We haven't watched this weeks yet, though. ;)

You're right about how it's managed to survive beyond the "they got together" bit.

 

Let me know how you enjoy this week's show. I think it's good. Even the Alexis/Pi (Pie?) stuff is well done.

I have to eat crow @iacas and @Golfingdad as I am now fully addicted to breaking bad. Love the show.

I should not mention this in the same post as it is probably some sort of blaspheme, but I have watched a couple episodes of Arrow and am slightly entertained in a guilty pleasure sort of way. It is little more than a sappy batman ripoff, but dang it he shots a bow and he is not afraid to use it. No letting the law try to do what it I supposed to. I love bows...;)

I don't mind Arrow. Taken with a grain of salt it's quite enjoyable. Even though sometimes the acting on it is quite second rate, it's kept me entertained.

I finished the first season of Banshee the other day. This could be one of my new favorite shows. Over the top violence, gratuitous nudity, and shady characters. What's not to like?

Agree that the acting is not the best but arrow is still very entertaining and love how it connects to batman!

Only saw 1 episode of The Returned and it looks really good. You can get it for free from iTunes. Not really about zombies. Some holy s&^t like Lost moments. I loved the first few seasons of Lost and nothing has come close since in terms of mythology mystery. Lately, the broadcast networks and even cable, come out with fewer and fewer shows that I like. Sundance Channel with this, Rectify and Top of Lake have filled in some of the gap for me.

That's a oui. Subtitles.

Ah, cool. That explains why I couldn't find any info on a bastardized version.

Love your handle. Aaahh oooo. Werewolves of London. Draw blood.

Thanks. Been on a heavy Zevon kick for months now.

Sleepy Hollow returned this week, with the addition of John Noble from Fringe. Makes me kind of sad it's only a ten episode season.

I've enjoyed The Pete Holmes Show for the few weeks it's been on. He's one of my favorite standups and podcast hosts, so the show has been right up my ally.

Also started watching Black Mirror. Warning: NSFW - language. Second episode of Les Revenants is piling on the questions, but still good. Gotta give high marks to international tv.
