I'm surprised to hear people enjoyed this. The over the top product placement/advertising was just too much for me. I turned it off after a couple minutes.

Same as you, I caught the first episode but not last nights. Yeah the 15 year old (Sawyer I think?) was damn good, incredible that he's only 15. Thought the country guy from West Virginia was really...

I see no reason why you won't love season 2 as well. Both seasons are great.

Yeah to each their own, like you said it's cool that people have a different opinion on which album is their best. Means they've put out two good albums. I just happen to prefer Home as a whole...

I always thought It Never Goes Out was a solid release, but I was really surprised at the leap they took between that and Home. Home took me from "yeah I like The Hotelier" to them releasing one of...

Yeah I get what you're saying. And it's not that I dislike that aliens were responsible for the dome, I love fantasy and sci-fi, I was just so wrapped up in what was going on with the human...

Yeah I didn't have that big of an issue with the ending, it just wasn't really what I was expecting I guess. I think my only issue was that, and I know this is a simplified explanation of the ending,...

I finished Under the Dome over the weekend. Overall I'd give it an 8/10. I really enjoyed the characters and their interactions together and the power struggle that was going on inside the dome. The...

Field Report - Marigolden - 8.5/10

Folk band led by Christopher Porterfield, who used to play in DeYarmond Edison with Bon Iver's Justin Vernon. Really great cd, love Porterfield's lyrics. A lot of...

Read about 30 pages of Lonesome Dove and was having a hard time getting into it. Based on reviews I've heard it starts out a little slow but is well worth the read. Who here has read it and wants to...

Watched the first episode today. Really enjoyed it, although I could have probably done without seeing photos of body parts. I hadn't heard of Robert Durst before, curious to see where it goes from...

Yeah I know, and what's maybe the strangest part of it all is that it's a Hulu original series. It seems like all the stuff they've done so far is fairly low budget, so to pony up for bad robot and...

Yeah 100% agree, Hold Me Down is my favorite from CTTM and one of the best songs they've ever done. My list would look more like this:

1. When You're Around
2. Resolution
3. Let's Get Fucked Up and...

This episode might have been my favorite. The mom pulling out her old dell during the torture scene and the "he knows how to play every Train song on his guitar" were great.

Yeah sorry, I maybe didn't make myself very clear. I was referring to IT being horror (not 11/22/63) and the only reason I wouldn't want to read 11/22/63 anymore is if it requires reading IT...
