I've seen the TPB's in comic book stores, and I'm a mark for that type of non-super hero comic book series that it represents, so I may actually pick up volume one and go from there. If you in any way like a good comic series, I seriously recommend Y The Last Man. I was actually emotional by the time I read the last volume (9). I don't know if you've heard of it, but it's about a guy named Yorrick, who does in fact become the last man on earth, after every living thing with a Y chromosome drops down dead, apart from him and his monkey. Without the men, the women are fucked -or not as it were- and the planet turns to chaos... It's TV series waiting to happen, but it could also work well as a movie with a Shia LaBeuof or maybe a Chris Evans in the role of Yorrick.
Also, does Immortals also come out on 11.11.11 in the states? If it's anything like Sin City, or 300, I'm gonna be I'm gonna be in Heaven.
Yeah, Walking Dead definitely has it's flaws, and I completely agree about Shane. Like, I'm not a horrible person, but, I would have done the same in that situation, and, far from being disgusted at his actions, it actually made me like him even more. Is that bad?
The redneck guy -who's name escapes me- has become kinda the best character, which as you kinda pointed out isn't all that much of an achievement. T-Dog is useless, and when he cut his arm I actually LOL'd at his stupidity, but he's surely not to far away from becoming a fat Zombie with a redneck crossbow arrow in his skull. I'll cheer if/when that happens... Never saw myself feeling like that after the first few episodes of season one.
The zombies still get me going, though, and that part where they broke down had me cringing at what was coming next. It didn't disapoint.
So, Walking Dead season two is kinda great, but, not as great as An Idiot Abroad: The Bucket List, which gave me a headache because I laughed so much.
Parks & Rec has been just as good as it's ever been. Lol at the fancy dress party.
I still have seven episodes of Arested Dev to watch as well.
Nice little pun! I caught it.
thanks, it made me smile when I found it
thanks bro and I'll keep that in mind
hey IA would you mind changing the name of this thread
I was originally going to make a new thread for each one of these but I thought it would be better to just have 1 thread for it. So could you change the name to "Ask Broc: NFL Expert"
Yeah, Buster losing his hand was classic.
I'm most surprised about the show coming back on account of the fact that it was only ever successful from a critical standpoint. I mean, it was always a money pit; nobody ever fucking watched it. The fact that it ever even made it Season 3 surprises me to this very day. Them bringing it back at all and making a movie seems like they're kind of gambling on the post-Arrested success of Jason Bateman and Michael Cera to bring new viewers in.
If you're interested in seeing more Giancarlo, I highly recommend a ground-breaking little cop show from the '90s called Homicide: Life on the Street. It was from the same people responsible for The Wire- Homicide, incidentally, also focused on crime in Baltimore- and it has one of the finest dramatic ensembles ever assembled for network television. Shows like The Shield (my favorite show of all the times) even owe a lot of its aesthetic to Homicide as Homicide was the drama that introduced television to the approach of filming with handheld cameras. It's very authentic and gritty stuff, and it features one of the greatest performances/characters in television history with Andre Braugher as Det. Frank Pembleton. Shit, Braugher, and Braugher alone, is reason enough to watch the show. All of the amazing writing, directing, and other terrific performances are just sweet, sweet icing on an already delicious (and badass) fucking cake.
That was crazy about the mask! Such a random detail that would never have foretold what was going to happen, but hindsight made it a vision of the future. I sure hope this show receives plenty of awards when all is said and done.
I also just read an interview with Giancarlo Esposito, and apparently he feels he had a lot to do with the decision to give Gus so many layers, and Gus could have been far less interesting if not for his desire to make him more than just a recurring guest role. I think I need to see more of this Giancarlo guy, as he has OWNED this season.
I'm almost at the end of season two of Arrested Development, and Buster getting his hand bit off by a seal is the biggest highlight so far.
"I'm a monster!!!!"
With the amount of top actors, in the show, who must have work coming out of their arses, the producers of the show are pretty damn lucky to have them back for a fourth season.
