Hmmm, was not feeling the season premiere at all. The conversations just dragged on way too long, almost into soap opera territory. I almost felt the show kinda tailed off after the first season's opener, but Darabont's absence has definitely been felt in S02. Something seems amiss for me- writing, acting, pacing are all a bit off to me.

I'm almost positive the first post-Darabont episode isn't for a few more weeks. He was let go after the first few episodes were pretty much complete.
I also read that they basically took the first two episodes of the season and decided to combine them into one 90-minute show. That might explain the uneven pacing.

re: What Shows Are You Watching?

im really liking american horror story. watched the first 3 episodes friday night. intriguing storyline that is fastpaced with great cinematogrophy, characters and directing.

im thinking it might have some of the same people involved with true blood.

btw AHS and walking, i actually have 2 drama series i can get into and follow which ive never really had/done before

re: What Shows Are You Watching?

You know what's pretty cool? I'm hitting the gym 5 days a week now as part of my lose weight initiative (started at 243, down to 232 now ), and when I'm on the treadmill or the bike I usually watch tv to distract me somewhat. Last week as I was leaving this kid offered me a chance to do a Nielsen survey and get a free 20 dollar online giftcard, so I took the card and went home and did it, and today I just got my email with the card numbers and etc. so I got a free 20 bucks that can be used for online shopping just for filling out a little 15 minute survey about my gym and the shows I watch there. I was a little skeptic about the reward at first because I've been offered money for surveys in the past before where I didn't get anything, but it was all legit. Easy money.

Community has been put on indefinite hiatus. Chances of renewal next season looking slim

Dammit! LOVED that show. I also think we were in the minority that liked Perfect Couples.

Cannot BELIEVE that Whitney was renewed for another season. Easily the least funny show on TV. If you've seen her before, basically all the jokes are her stand-up.

I got that feeling to except it felt a lot more like DS9 without an Avery Brooks level actor. Still it has dinosaurs which you can rarely go wrong with.

By the way can anyone tell me if Kelsey Grammer's Boss is worth checking out on Starz?

I love Community so I am pissed about this news!!! Whitney getting renewed is salt in the wound. How many people did she have to service to get a show, let alone get it renewed?!?!?!
