    Well, now begins the time of "new TV" or at least new network TV. I'm quite looking forward to new Fringe, Chuck and Castle, though I will miss various series like Burn Notice, Eureka and Warehouse 13.

    Aint season 2 of The Walking Dead out soon? Being a twitcher meself I look forward to it. A couple of mates into zombies once again got all anal and sed "season 1,it's ok but.." They've not even read the first few trades so thats their beef (tossers). Me, i love all that shit..i dig anything where humanity and technolgy get fucked over and put in their place

    @johnjones.I've only got the first two seasons of Eureka and am fond of it.Burn Notice is good for a laugh.I enjoyed bits of Warehouse 13 yet didn't really make a connect to it..

    Speaking of connects a drunk pal of mine actually said they were going to make a new season of The Wire!? He must have had one can of vile strong cider too many..bless him!

    @ fmiller.
    Yeah, i enjoy Sons of Anarchy. I've not seen all of season 3 yet.I was a bit of a prospect at the age of 12!! I used to love the meetings they had.I made tea for the mad angels and they used to "smuggle " me into the pub to drink Newcastle Brown Ale! I remember the barman being shit scared!! It was hilarious!

    Just got up to date with Breaking Bad. I fucking love it man! Our Jesse has gone well darkside..Walt making stupid mistakes..the Secret Origin of evil psycho Gus..for me is one of the only things i watch on T.V now(via the net). I didn't catch the last two episodes of Game of Thrones so got that to watch later today/tomorrow..

    Has anyone seen it yet? Thumbs (or any other appendages) up or down?

    If you want a preview of the upcoming new US pilots this season, AV Club will fulfil all your needs.
    part 1
    part 2

    Spoiler - most of them look like utter shit. For example - no less that 2 shows which simply steal the premise of the comic Fables, Sarah Michelle Geller playing identical twins from different sides of the tracks, 2 Mad Men ripoffs, sundry weak sitcom & procedural set-ups, what looks like an utter waste of LOST's best actor Michael Emerson and reboots of Charlie's Angels AND Beavis & Butthead.

    But hey, at least over in Blighty we have the last ever season of Spooks and Misfits without Nathan to look forward to, eh? Eh?

    Warehouse 13 is quite fun. I met the bloke in Toronto who rents them all his cool retro furniture and accessories, and the show is a blast even if you just watch it to see the fine stuff they use to outfit the sets. And if you're in Toronto, go check out Marty Millionaire's retro furniture place on Parliament and Queen.

    Eureka continues to be awesome. Monday's episode actually made me nervous for the fate of a computerized house and "her" android husband.

    So, did anyone see the new Sarah Michelle Gellar vehicle, Ringer? I missed it and was curious to learn if it was worth seeing. All I know is that Gellar plays twins and at least one of those twins has a stupidly pretentious name.

    Well, I enjoyed the relaunch of "Two and a Half Men". Charlie Sheen's character was

    killed when he stumbled (or was pushed) in front of a commuter train and "exploded like a sack of meat."


    Aston Kutcher's character seems enjoyably insane.

    "Two Broke Girls" I half-watched. There could be potential there. Goddamn, was that Garret Morris?

    @johnjones: I wouldn't be able to watch Ringer, even if it was good, on account of that name. It's just too ridiculous for my sanity.

    Is it my imagination or is the plot of Breaking Bad getting a bit silly? Does anyone believe Gus would
    a) employ such a stupid and risky plan to eliminate the cartel bosses, b) actually succeed without being shot down by dozens of henchmen, and c) trust Jesse Pinkman with his life after poisoning himself?

    @ trini_naenae

    I don't know, Sarah Michelle Gellar isn't that bad of a name. At least it can be shorted to SMG, which is a little cool. Honestly I think she'd have gotten more respect as an actress for doing the voice of SARAH, the house in Eureka, than for this weird twin thing.

    @Greasemonkey
    Was it believable? You might have a point.

    Was it a great episode? Absolutely.
  6.  (10190.19)
    It was a fun episode, to be sure. Jesse's character keeps growing by leaps and bounds, too.

    Thanks for hiding the Breaking Bad spoilers, Greasemonkey. I'm a week behind.

    I just saw "Bug." Sheeahhht.
