    Det. Munch, as many of you know was a character in Homicide, and also Law and Order--
    He also appears as a brief cameo in The Wire (They never say it's him, but c'mon-- YOU KNOW IT IS)--


    Not counting an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, the Homicide TV movie and one on Sesame Street (when he was played by a different actor) the character of John Munch has appeared on nine different television series.

    Kick ass new promo for Game of Thrones coming in April. Yeah, I am absolutely one of "those" fans.

    Re: D&D Community, I thought Chevy Chase did one of the best portrayals of an over the top villain that I've ever seen in that ep. The scene where:
    he said, "So many things, Abed, so many things" on his throne of boxes and cones had me simultaneously busting a gut and getting shivers down my spine, not a combination I thought I'd ever experience.

    And his inflection in the, "...Jeff Winger, of all people..." line was damn near perfect.


    Watch this episode if you like things that are funny or parodies of fantasy stuff or D&D. I think the only one that tops it is the paintball ep from season 1.

    I am really jazzed to see Game of Thrones this April. HBO seems to be the go-to-place for drama on television this season. If Game of Thrones manages to be successful enough for us to see A Clash of Kings and a Storm of Swords, holy shit I will be so pumped. I'm on Feast for Crows at the moment but those first three books were really great.

    Also in April I am increasingly getting pumped for Treme season 2. I am watching Season 1 as we speak and I think it's a really tremendous show and I am enjoying it immensely. I'm invested and intrigued by damn near every character's story arc's and motivations. Loving it.

    And then Boardwalk Empire which I just recently finished?! Holy shit HBO is kicking a lot of ass.

    Then if we can get Mad Men back this year also. I was lost for solid drama on the television but the triple play of Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, and Treme will fill that void. And if Game of Thrones turns out to be a great adaptation then just YAY.

    Season 1, ep 17.

    Halloween eps were great. AD&D was funny, but not as funny as I thought it would be to me, who plays...

    Brian Michael Bendis on FX's 'Powers' pilot
    Last week, FX announced it was producing a pilot for a proposed series based on Powers, a long-running saga about cops in a city teeming with superheroes. Think: NYPD Blue meets Watchmen; Jack Kirby meets James Ellroy. Handling the adaptation: writer/producer Charles H. Eglee (formerly of The Shield and Dark Angel; he also helped filmmaker Frank Darabont bring The Walking Dead to TV life) and veteran TV director Michael Dinner. Superstar comic book scribe Brian Michael Bendis — who created Powers with artist Michael Avon Oeming — will work on the show as an exec producer.

    Since launching in 2000, Powers has distinguished itself as one of the comic industry’s best, most visually distinctive, and certainly edgiest superhero comics. The creators’ cited influences: Homicide: Life on the Street and Taxi Driver. Yet the Powers world isn’t just grim and gritty; it’s deep and mythic, too.

    Is that the porn one or the real one?

    Either way, no Linda Carter.

    Tragically, that is indeed Adrianne Palicki as the new Wonder Woman - from, let us not forget, the creator of Ally MacBeal.

    Adrianne Palicki is gross in the face.

    Which is all I am judging her by.

    This thread has become very depressing very quickly.

    As someone who bears no ill will whatsoever toward Adrianne Palicki, and who was a fan of Ally McBeal back in the day - that photo is a war crime.
