    Yea I heard that over the summer. We still got Munch though. Right?

    Yeah he's still there, but his role has been slowly diminishing since around 4 yrs ago. He's really there just to do random quips here and there. That whole cast had chemistry and now its broken

    Yeah, it sucks that SVU loses Stabler........but I got to admit, the stories this past season were trying too hard.
    Maybe an overhaul is needed........but that didn't really work for the other Law and Orders.

    Thank you Elliot Stabler for the greatest quote of Evo 2010..................you'll be missed.

    Jesus Christ how do you keep up with all that?

    I can't even keep up with like 3-4 shows. I usually catch everything later on demand, but even that sometimes I say fuck it. Just wait until the season is completed and knock it out on a free day.
    On the third day of our expedition we came across a large rubber plant, but unfortunately we cannot cut it down. For as we know, money can't buy knives. I went into a store one time and I said, "Here's a hundred thousand dollars, can I buy a knife?" And he said, "no money can't buy knives."

    I like Zooey, but this show could ruin her for me. She's too over the top, just like everything else about the show. It feels like a multi-camera comedy shot in the single camera format...you almost expect a laugh track...

    edit: What shows do you guys watch on DVD? Do you enjoy commentary tracks and deleted scenes? I'm a huge TV on DVD fan. Ever since Arrested Development, I like getting good comedies on DVD.
    I haven't seen Zooeys new show, but i am little worried about it...

    I will watch the commentary on anything. Movies, TV shows, Music, I don't care, I love hearing about all that kinda shit. I don't own many shows on DVD yet tho. Just Big Bang Theory and Life and the BBT DVDs are rather devoid...Just some short featurettes an shit. Kinda disappointing. Life has commentary stuff on em but I haven't gotten to watch them yet. Will at some point soon tho.

    New episode of Castle was better then the Premier. I was happy.

    Parks and Office have great extras. The way single camera comedies are shot work well with DVD sales because there is always tons of material they had to cut for time, so the deleted scenes are great.

    So, the two leading actors of the best leading L&O series are planning to bounce? That's sucks.

    And +1 for Psych. That show's getting a lot of famous guest stars. I thought I was the only one who watched USA.

    Meloni couldn't negotiate a new contract and Hargitay's character is being moved to a 'supervisor' role. (Her contract extension was only for a portion of the series)

    Caught the two hour prem of Terra Nova. There's an intriguing implication on what Terra Nova "really" is between some characters dialougues and set pieces. I've got my fingers crossed in hoping it gets really strange.

    Also watching online streams of Awkward.

    Amber Heard and Maria Bello. Yup.

    I'm actually looking forward to this show............it's the only new show on NBC I'm looking forward to.
    Probably on any channel.

    And again.............BD Wong plays a shrink.

    Then again............there is Fox's New Girl cause I have this thing about Zooey.

    That looks like a bad ass show. I'm looking forward to it as well.
    Why bring logic to a discussion?

    The second episode of The New Girl was friggin' funny. That douche Schmidt kinda stole the show overall. I fell the same way IGN feels about him - can't tell whether it's either comedic genius on the actor's and writer's part or it just a happy accident.

    I saw TV thread and figured it should be in here. Just trying to show some support and spread the message, since the media has been trying to have a blackout of information on this. Sorry if I did something wrong.

    Maybe if people watch this they could understand better, because this is a very good report on the subject. And it comes from a gamer TV channel, it makes me proud to be a gamer.

    They took their cue from BBT - only in TNG, they're not as exaggerated. They're like the modern, common geek instead of The Wonder Years "Paul" geek.

    It's a pretty simple formula - take a hot girl, make her a geek and watch nerds flock. I'm sort of annoyed by it because it seems sort of like pandering to a demographic. I mean, if the pandering is incidental, that's ok, but i don't think it is. However, I'm also not going to argue with seeing Zooey each week in nerdy glasses and cute dresses...

    TNG is funny, I like it, but how on earth is her kind of "nerdy" more normal then BBT nerdy? She still comes off as totally strange and socially inept...

    Edit: Unless you're referring more to the guys, ok I could see that, but then I wouldn't really put them in the same class description as BBT anyway.

    well her whole style is pretty indy geek. not even just this show...her singing to her choices in movies. i honestly think thats just who she is and not just the part she potrays in hollywood but i could be wrong.

    Anybody happen to watch that new show Homeland after the Dexter premiere? Good friggin stuff and it has that weird red-headed guy from Life which just adds to the goodness.

    For anyone who isn't familiar with it, the show's about a thought-to-be-dead POW who gets rescued, only some thing he's been turned and is now spying/planning an attack on American soil. Much of the show is figuring out whether or not he's a terrorist now. Of course there's other stuff like the drama of him returning home to his family (the details of which I won't spoil) and some other stuff. If you get chance, you should definitely check it out.

    Ok before this thread goes any further; The New Girl will not be referred to as TNG anymore but simply as NG. I refuse to have Star Trek's The Next Generation's rep tarnished by mistaken acronyms.

    I thought it felt wrong calling it TNG but couldn't put my finger on why. Thanks Val.

    Ok, I'm not REALLY that into Terra Nova, but I'm giving it a chance so far...they've fulfilled some basic expectations already by having at least 1 person become a snack for a dinosaur, along with having some pretty hot ass on the show. This broad right here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0174909/ is gorgeous, and she just bent over a little while ago in some very small booty-shorts. I happened to tune in just in time to catch that bend over scene... I'm surprised they even showed it, since most networks appear to be afraid of showing a hot ass when the woman is wearing small shorts or a short skirt. Anyway, she also gets bonus points for having a british accent.... at first glance I thought she was Parminder Nagra (adorable little piece of hot Indian ass... I watched ER simply because she was on it), but apparently not. ..but yeah, Rogue One was surprisingly good.

    The oldest daughter on the show looks good too.

    I also need to check out The New Girl....yes, my interest in that show is purely because Zooey D. is on there.

    Universal Soldier TV series?
    http://tv.ign.com/articles/119/1197940p1.html

    I guess it could work if they took it seriously enough. Since they're saying it'd be a reboot, that gives them a ton of freedom to craft a decent mytho. After the awesome series which was Battlestar Galactica, any sci-fi reboot/re-imagining gets a chance with me.

    ah, finally I get to see The New Girl. Zooey is indeed absolutely adorable. This girl defines new levels of cute/hotness....she looks like a beautiful cartoon/comic book character that somehow became a real being.....gorgeous.

    "Ringer" is losing me, but CW still dominates when it comes to the TnA content. There's so much hot ass on the shows from that network it's ridiculous. About 5 years and 3 months from now, I farted. Yeah I'm posting from the future, muthafuckas!

    "Beware The Batman" CGI Animated Series Coming For 2013, "DC Nation" Updates
    October 04, 2011 by James Harvey

    New details on upcoming DC Comics-related animation programming, including details on the next animated Batman series Beware the Batman, have been revealed.

    Sam Register confirmed the title of the next animated Batman series, due in 2013. Register, executive vice president for creative affairs at Warner Bros. Animation, closed the MIP Junior conference in Cannes, France on Sunday, October 2nd, 2011, with a keynote address on upcoming Warner Bros. Animation plans. MIP Junior is an intensive two-day conference agenda of debates, interactive workshops, pitching and matchmaking sessions that update executives and consumers on the latest developments in kids’ entertainment. With a new Batman theatrical feature slated for next year, Register says it was synergy to bring about a new Batman animated series.

    The next Batman animated series, debuting in 2013, is titled Beware the Batman. According to Register, the CGI animated series will spotlight a classic-looking Batman teaming up with a gun-toting Alfred Pennyworth and a female ninja sidekick. Beware the Batman is executive-produced by Glen Murakami, and will explore the mythology’s more obscure villains, such as Professor Pyg, but also won't shy away from featuring some of the more well-known Batman foes.

    Concerning villains slated to appear in the series, Register commented, "We went in deeper into the villain library and pulled out some other villains. We didn’t want to do another Joker story...there’s too many of them."

    "We just needed to do something new, so we’re starting off with new villains," he concluded.

    In the series, Batman will team up with a younger female sidekick named Katana. During the keynote, Register added that Katana will fill the sidekick role, but won't be a replacement for Robin.

    "Katana is gonna be his new Robin, but not necessarily," Register said.

    Register also revealed new details about the forthcoming DC Nation block during his keynote address. Highlights include Aardman Animation creating new claymation Batman shorts, Plastic Man animated shorts, and the creator behind My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic working on a series of animated shorts teaming Wonder Girl, Batgirl, Supergirl called Super Best Friends Forever. Additionally, there is also a series of Doom Patrol animated shorts in production. The block will also host a series of behind-the-scenes videos, special interviews, and much more. DC Nation, slated to run for at least three years on Cartoon Network, will debut in Spring 2012 with Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series.

    Stay tuned for further updates, including exclusive content and much more, right here at The World's Finest.

    Well................this is different.
