Let's see.... so many to name. Sopranos, Dexter, Quest for the Card, Big Break, Curb, Seinfeld, Californication, I Shouldn't Be Alive, Cash Cab, Jeopardy.... My new favorite show is definitely Pawn Stars. The Walking Dead is pretty sweet at times, but pretty boring at others. I like Boardwalk Empire a lot. I probably forgot a few.

Breaking Bad is back this Sunday and I'm really excited. It's IMO the best of all-time. Add Homeland to my list too. Other personal favorites include: PTI, Family Guy, South Park, 60 Minutes, Frontline, Charlie Rose. And I don't care, Jersey Shore season one was hysterical.

BSG, OS, CYE.  Wife and I watched Flash Forward, then found out it was cancelled.  Used to like Roswell and Smallville, but both get old quick.  Torchwood?...  Maybe.  Dr. Who is cool.  Futurama, Simpsons, Family Guy and Cleveland Show until they get raunchy.

Breaking Bad (8 episodes this year and 8 more next year to end the series), Homeland, The Newsroom impresses me through a couple of episodes, Damages (back tonight for its last season), Two and a Half Men (with or without Charlie Sheen), NFL or College Football.  A few more that don't come to mind right now...

A few of those that i forgot...  Dexter, House of Lies, Big Break, Feherty, Weeds, even Morning Drive with Holly Sonders, and most of whatever else is on Golf Channel.  I tried to make my show choices among those shows that haven't been cancelled.  I even like Anger Management, Charlie Sheen's new comedy.  In the A/V store that I work at I've had the NFL Network on all day since we don't get Golf Channel.  Since I work weekends at least I can put all of the TVs on different sports, from golf to NASCAR to football to baseball to soccer...

Finished a few hours ago. MIND BLOWN! [SPOILER=Warning: Spoiler!]I already knew basically what was going to happen (figured Walter and Jesse would make it through, and I had already seen the scene where Gus gets his face blown off on YouTube), but it was still amazing. That part with Brock and the Lily of the Valley plants (and the camera shot panning in on the plant in Walter's backyard at the end of the episode) was awesome.[/SPOILER] Can't wait for season five. Trying to catch up on Homeland now.

Ahh! We're fixed now. :-P For all you crazy people who haven't seen it yet. Also, not that anyone cares, but I found it interesting that the Gus/Walter/Jessie Superlab that they use in seasons 3 and 4 has "Weiss" brand thermometers and pressure gauges, made by Weiss Instruments, which is run by relatives of mine. You can see a pretty good shot of one of the pressure gauges in the season 4 episode "Crawl Space."

    • Yet another question about the technology for filming a swing. I read Erik's updated "Filming your Swing" blog post as part of researching my next phone purchase. My current phone, which is on its last legs, was able to record video up to 1080p at up to 120 fps (Pixel 3XL).  However, that camera isn't great at the moment (various reasons unrelated to its specifications) and I'm going to get a new device soon, too.  Its likely successor for me is only able to do 30fps at 1080p, so that won't work for filming a golf swing.  It can do 720p @ 480 fps though (device I'm likely to get is a Galaxy A42).  Will that work for this?  I realize the post says "at least 720p video," but I don't know if I should shoot for better than that (such as if it is expected to be outdated soon).  It also seems odd to me that a camera could do only 30fps at 1080p but 480 fps at 720p, but I know almost nothing about these things. I am also debating getting a separate camera for golf swings if this won't work;  my prior separate-camera is a Canon PowerShot ELPH 110.  I believe it tops out at 720p / 30 fps;  if there's a reasonably priced camera that works for my golf swing filming, I'd be happy to get that and not sweat the camera on the phone. Other than filming my golf swing, my phone is pretty much a communication device and podcast player, so I'm not going higher end except if doing so is the most effective way to get a good camera for my golf swing. (Apologies if this should have been a separate thread, but I figured it was on-topic here and I didn't think there was another forum than Member Swings where this would be an appropriate top-level post)
    • Day 127: Played 18 this morning. Tried to simplify the mechanics of my priority piece (which is two things) into a feel but didn’t work great, so just settled on on of them after a few holes. Played okay except for a dumb triple bogey on #12.
    • I got my first round in. I haven't used Game Golf in so long, I got out of the habit of tagging. Missed a few shots on the course, though it was pretty easy to edit in on my computer. Like @iacas, I also felt the editor was just okay. I didn't have an issue with the map size, but I found scrolling up and down a lot a bit tedious. I had to mess around with adding shots and penalties, though, so I had to spend more time editing off the map. The penalty functions weren't very intuitive. They seem to add an additional "dead shot" (does not appear to track the distance for your stats) for counting purposes as well as a penalty stroke. The lost ball one makes sense, as it gives you a marker with an X on it so you can mark off where you hit the ball that was lost, then your next shot is from where you played your last stroke to where you play your next one. But the drop ball function seems to work the exact same way, which doesn't make sense. If I hit into a penalty area I'm likely not taking S&D, so in order to make it work score-wise, I ended up just deleting the original tracked shot. I don't know if I'm doing that correctly. I didn't like tagging on my belt the way I used Game Golf. As Erik mentioned, the vibration is subtle and it doesn't beep. I often didn't know if it registered. Also the Game Golf unit was angled so you can tag the club hanging down at your side naturally. Tagging the Shot Scope requires bringing the club perpendicular to the ground. It's awkward and I almost hit a playing partner today while tagging a putt because he was walking past me and didn't expect me to bring the club up like that. Next time I'm going to try wearing the unit on my left like I do my Garmin and tagging by bringing the unit to the club. I might even stop using the Garmin if the GPS on the H4 is good enough. Didn't get a chance to compare today because I forgot my Garmin. I didn't know there was a pin marker function. I'm going to have to try that next time. So far I like the data it presents. It seems more detailed than Game Golf. I'll form a more complete opinion of it as I play more rounds.
    • I realize this got no traction initially. But for anyone interested, SwingLogic will be dropping this for pre-orders early in the week. No idea what the timeline is for delivery though. I plan to give it a shot. If it turns out to be comparable to the Mevo or R10, I'd imagine it'll do really well. 
    • Day 582: Worked a bit on another piece of having my upper center move toward the target in transition. I call it the Leaning Tower of Pisa feel. It is more for the irons. For driver, it doesn’t need to be as pronounced. Videos the practice.
