I love my tracker. I just watched Game of Thrones S2E2. So many Kings. So few thrones. What a great show.

Yeah, it's magnificent. :thumbsup:

I watched the first season of "American Horror Story" in one sitting a while back. I liked it. But then again, I also like "Glee". :oops:

Just had a great laugh with the poor guys they sent over on the real Amazing Race set in Taipei. So difficult to get around, I mean, the first clue was a billboard in Ximending. kind of looking for a Chinese student with glasses at Tai-Da...

Can't say about anything prior to s8 (since that's where I picked up the show), but happy to tell ya IMO it only gets better from there. The Tess character is pretty well done, and the actor who plays Lois really steps up her game as the show progresses. :bravo:

I don't mind paying a monthly fee if need be, but the constant censoring out of important bits of shows on Star, etc and seriously inconvenient times is getting to me. Plus, there are a ton of shows I really want to watch, but can't. Does Netflix offer international service yet?


Does Hulu plus work here?

I've only seen the Madonna and Britney Spears episodes, but they were good. Nothing to be embarrassed of :-)

Saw "The Slap" and Aussie drama series being advertised on the Sundance channel and decided to DL.
Some of the best TV going, entertaining, poignant & thought provoking.

Good heaven's, man, hell, NOOOOOOO!!!! I am a fan of the supernatural, not the superboring. And yes, i browsed the books, I have attempted to finish the movies. Mission Impossible. My brain rejects them on principle. :sick:

For instance, I liked Charmed, I liked The Dead Zone. True Blood is sort of cool, even if I have to endure the airplane version, but at least, the DVDs are, AFAIK, uncensored.

I really like Japanese, Thai and Hong Kong horror movies, and I even enjoy the old fashioned zombie vampire Taoist old movies on TV. Anything but Twig. You're killing me, man! :p

Has anyone seen any of Mad Men season 5? Don Draper was going off the rails a bit in season 4, and then got married, which was bit out of character. Not sure how the series is developing, maybe heading towards free love flower-power vibe.
