Hi, everybody, and thanks for joining me. I'll get started with the chat, but if you're out there (I can see the 20 of you, and I hope it's no reflection on my popularity that there are 272 people on the Mizzou chat right now), please jump in live. Don't make me take roll.
There are 10 episodes in Season 2, and the season finale is Dec. 15, so we're halfway through. I think it's fabulous. I've had people tell me they think it's a better show to save up and binge, and I won't argue with that, but I couldn't wait.
You know how soap operas work, right? Happy couples are boring, so the writers put them together to break them up to put them back together. Am I saying "Castle" is a soap opera? It's my impression that most people watch for Castle and Beckett and not for the cases.
I've just seen the episode you saw, embedded in the other "Chicago" series. I feel as if this franchise is fine, and if you enjoy it, that's great, but none of the shows are engaging to me.
We missed you; had to talk among ourselves. As for "The Walking Dead," did you know this season all takes place on the same day? I hadn't realized that. Including the Morgan flashback episode, that means not much time has actually passed, and it also means we might not find out the "dead or alive?" question for awhile longer.
Seamus and Juliana Dever (sorry I can't provide character names) are great friends and backers of Stray Rescue in St. Louis. (Honestly, I thought they were on "NCIS"....) A friend of mine who likes "Castle" feels the same way you do about Beckett. She thinks Stana Katic was miscast and almost ruins thte show.
I read it in a recap, and by the way, I always recommend reading recaps of a complicated show you watch; there are great insights, especially if you find a recapper who respect. I like HitFix and EW.com.
Executive producer Greg Nicotero was quoted as saying that late last month. And by the way -- ha ha, I made you an addict!
I'd guess that, too. Finding out at the end of the season will be fine if it's a happy ending; otherwise, not so much.
OK, ignore the greatest show ever in the history of modern TV.
I never have watched and voted, but I have gone back and watched a pilot after it was picked up. I did read some reviews of the new pilots and they were pretty negative.
"Mad Men" can be No. 2. But with Season 2, I have to put "Fargo" at the top.
And it's expensive, too, right? Like $20 a month? People have asked me about it a lot, but you're the first person I know who's tried it. Anybody else sampled Sling TV?
That's not a humble opinion. It's a correct opinion!
You can watch all of Season 1 in a day.
The bigger story here is that CBS is making a show that it will deliver directly to viewers, bypassing local affiliates. If networks start doing this, and create more original programming, local stations would really suffer. Unless they just ran court shows and reruns and prospered greatly.
I heard from "Bones" fans that they hated the "Sleepy Hollow" part, and you say vice-versa. I never thought these shows were compatible for a crossover, and apparently was right. But I hope you haven't given our nice "Bones" lady, who's been MIA for a couple of weeks, a stroke.
Bill, you put your name in the question box. If you're out there, please try again.
Wow, we have 52 people now! The Mizzou chat must be over. (I went to Mizzou, but I don't want to chat bout it.)
The great thing about "Fargo" is that people don't always behave intelligently. ONE of the great things. I have seen "Into the Badlands" and have a review in Friday's Go! magazine. It's martial arts. It's weird and obscure and very beautiful, and I think I will watch, because it's just six episodes.
I drifted away several seasons ago, when the storylines started getting improbable. It doesn't seem to me that they're too much more off-the-rails this year, but I just dip in and out from time to time.
