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...

Simpsons, Futurama, NFL, Big Bang Theory, Golf Channel, Olympics (preferably summer).  That's about all I watch.  If none of those are on, I'm doing something else.

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...

Currently on the penultimate episode of season 4. Amazing show.

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.

Jamo! Spoiler cover that! :-D

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."

    • I know  for myself as a golf fan I want to be able to watch golf and have it entertain me.  There's really only three tournaments anymore I pay attention to Masters British and US Open.  The last couple years the US has been a dud but I keep watching hoping it will once again become the ultimate test. I want to see the best quality golf.  I think that's where this whole discussion of distance comes in.  Nicklaus Snead et all for the most part could swing much faster than they did.  Sometimes they would bash one but not usually.  Hogan did some long drive stuff at times early on and he was puttin the wood to it espescially for his height.  In order to score best these guys played a golf swing that was not maxed out because the ball spun so much that slight misfits were truly bad you had to manage the strike just right at high speed to keep spin down and get the launch right or it would be an embarrassing balloon ballflight.   They were playing the game of skill not the game of maximum speed alone.  Very self disciplined approach.  It kinda makes me mad when I hear younger folks say "part of the reason for the distance now is that players understand launch conditions better" Really?  To me it's preposterous to try to assert that modern players only in the last few years learned launch conditions.  It's also arrogant and incorrect.  Like gear effect also.  Heel low cuts and toe draws were shots people practiced with balata back to Jackie Burke! THE BALATA PLAYERS WERE MASTERS OF SPIN COMPARED TO THE GUYS NOW!  TO SAY THAT THEY DID NOT KNOW WHAT THEY WERE DOING IS ABSOLUTELY VERY VERY INSULTING TO THEM AND ANYONE WHO IS CONNECTED WITH THEM!   They were masters because the higher spinning ball gave them much better feedback while developing their swings.  You have to know how to create certain launch conditions to get that balata out there like Norman or Nicklaus or whoever.  Maybe they did not know their numbers on Doppler but they ALL knew who could do it and who couldn't and more I,portent how THEY did it.  Now they are all bashing it because there's no reason not to.  The ball  doesn't spin as much and the clubs are forgiving.  The courses are setup so that being in the 'rough' is better than the fairway. You get brain dead robots like DJ out there hitting miles.  Where's the variation and challenge?  Where are the courses made to challenge the modern technology?  It's not good for the tour to make the game into a distance contest.  They are marketing the thing poorly and results have been showing and will show the next few years as more and more courses close. Golf with a higher spinning ball would be so cool to even watch on tv with shot tracer.   I think with a game focused on power and distance over self control and skill you get a bore.  With most tour stops it's like watching a Ferrari F1 car racing a guy in a Prius.  (The Prius being the course.) A golfer with the skill of Corey Pavin simply couldn't make it today and that's sad.  Guy was a great competitor striker of the ball.  He was shaping fw wood shots into greens.  You don't see that stuff anymore and really the younger crowd doesn't know what they don't know.   To me the whole game of golf boils down to decisions and self knowledge and control and is made more interesting the more difficult the course gets.   With the modern week to week game with older courses and modern clubs it's basically a free minus six or more every week due to par fives alone for a good touring pro. This is a long rant to forgive me.  I just wish golf were more entertaining now.  It's largely not.  I'd like to see the pros have to face the challenge of a higher spinning ball and takeaway Some for and max volume on drivers and fw clubs.  The reason for this is I want to see what kind of level mankind can reach in this game.  I want to see the best quality.  IMO the way the game is goin is wrong for that.  It's a putting contest now.  They all bash it they all hit greens it's just who gets a hot putter. I wanna make it more challenging and truly separate the wheat from the chaff.  To me that would be more interesting. Or we can just leave things as they are and really never know what a great golfer is truly capable of because the game now really doesn't require that skill anymore.  Heck just carry a driver some short irons and wedges and a putter.   Sorry for the rant but many of us get angry when it's said that modern players have been taught new things by trackman.  Sorry guys,  equal some Nicklaus or Hogan or Knudson et all scores with balata then you can talk.  That's real feedback hit ball watch ball.  Ball no do what you want do something else! Happy Holidays!      
    • One thing I like about our semi-private course is that everyone is very friendly and welcoming. Our seniors group is fun to play with, although they sometimes forget that I'm one of the unretired! and have to go to work most days. The course is a Nicklaus design with lots of challenging holes. The drawback is that the developer envisioned Winged Foot Way Out West, sporting a private-equity membership with everyone living in $400,000 homes. Thus, he contracted for an extremely difficult course with lots of bunkers. Legend has it that Nicklaus cautioned the developer against going overboard on the difficulty of holes, and the complexity of the bunkering (as in high maintenance costs). Well, much less $$ showed up than was forecast, and the developer was forced to sell. Fast forward, the greens crew has had a rough job in recent years trying to keep the bunkers in repair. A few pits have been removed as they settled out oddly, or ended up permanently flooded.  But, those remaining really keep the greens crew busy. We just don't have a Winged Foot maintenance budget. One other drawback: the driving range is at the top of a sloping hill, so it's a bit had to determine your true club carries because you're hitting down hill. Overall, I really like the course, the crew and the members.
    • Welcome back then!    This thread has helped me twice get my head back on straight when returning to golf from a stoppage.  I hope it works wonders for you too. By the way, I'm not even convinced that your shot from the bunker was a bad one.  The issue at our level isn't "would a shot with this result make SportsCenter if I were in a pro event?" but rather "did I raise or lower my expected strokes remaining from this spot?" So, if you were short sided in the bunker and holed out, hey, great shot.  But if you were short sided and blasted out to the green and two-putted, there's a pretty decent chances you saved yourself some strokes right there with the bunker shot -- because it's probably an expected value over 3 for an average someone of your skill level to get down from there.
    • Is there an option for irregular?  I still haven't gotten to the point where I can look at a bunker lie and figure out with good regularity if there's sand underneath the ball.  When there is, but there isn't too much (so I guess I don't like "too soft"?) under it, I hit decently good sand shots.  Not "I'm always going to make the save" shots, but enough that I'm confident I'll hit it to within a likely two putt -- something I'm just fine with.
    • I have G400 irons and paid under $700 for six of them (5-P).  I am debating going to go back in a few days and get the UW as well, and I don't expect that to cost much more than $125.  Where are you that MAP is this much?  I bought mine at Roger Dunn and you can bet they follow Ping's rules to the letter.
