  1. I can't call myself a fan of the show. I mostly watch an occasional repeat on FX. But it always made me laugh, and occasionally cring. I did watch the season premiere out of curiosity. I would have watched again last night, except I had to be somewhere. Kutcher is okay, but he isn't a draw for me. I just wanted to see how they would handle the transition.

     

    If Charlie was going to die in Paris, I would have expected him to have gotten twisted up with some French chick during tantric sex and losing his balance while on the Eiffel tower. So, I thought the way he died was rather unimaginative. But I thought the funeral was pretty realistic. If you're going to sleep around with dozens and dozens of women, you'rte going to start passing around, herpes and genital warts and clamydia, etc. And his Mom acted in a way consistent with her character. It is a sitcom after all.

     

    Charlie ending up in a dustbuster seemed apropos. And Alan was doing what he's always done - helping someone out and ending up with the short end of the stick, as usual.

     

    I think it's interesting that Charlie Sheen once replaced Michael J. Fox in a sitcom, and now Charlie is being replaced by Ashton Kutcher in a sitcom. Very different circumstances, though.


  2. I finally say Ironclad a couple of days ago and my first thought was that there must have been a lot of folks suffering from PTSD during medieval times. Knowing that this was based on a true event made it more engaging. I'm not one for gratuitous violence, but you watch this knowing this is what it was really like. And it was nasty, bloody stuff.


  3. Should we nuke this thread, or just move it to the film section? Since Tom is no longer involved, seems odd to have it in this section, and titled as it is.

     

    Personally, I think Tom in a cool action flick directed by Walter Hill needs to happen. I have to imagine Gale would produce it, wouldn't she?

     

    I vote to nuke it.


  4. I'm very disappointed that Human Target was cancelled. I can't say I was thrilled with the direction they went in during the second season, though.

     

    I only watched Lie to Me once in a while. Mostly because I never knew when it was on and when it had new episodes. I always enjoyed it, though. I never could get into their secondary characters. Maybe that's just me.


  5. The film was predictable. The twist was not really a twist at all. You do end up really feeling bad for the Billy Bob character, which was nice. I think films like this forget to do that sometimes, putting an emotional punch into it.

     

    Say this on DVD a little while back and enjoyed it. Also, more interesting than I expected. Can't say I felt one smidge of sympathy for Billy Bob, though.


  6. Gee, I never thought of you as an authority figure before, John.

    I think it suits you.

     

    If things are going to start hopping around here, I guess I'll have to stop by more often.

     

    And an echo of thanks to Noeland for all the admin he's been doing the last 3(?) years. He's a peach.


  7. All in all the first season was pretty good. Good acting, writing, direction etc. There's definitely room for improvement though. With the pilot the show started off strong but it had trouble finding its feet from there. With only 6 episodes the whole season felt compressed. It needed more room to breathe. And they forget about Merle pretty quick don't they? :huh:

     

    I'm guessing that both Merle and Jim will show up next season, in one form or another.


  8. With the first season done, I gotta say it came out kinda uneven. The Pilot was great and the following two episodes were pretty good. But episodes 4, 5 and 6, while having there moments felt off compared to the earlier episodes.

     

    Do you think you feel that way because there was less zombie action in the last couple of episodes? It may be a show with zombies, but it is essentially about how people cope with an extreme situation.


  9. Does this mean we're all a bunch of squares? :huh:

     

    We seem to be more square than, say, indieflick_chick, but not quite as square as Noeland, Mike V or Tim.

     

    And that's all I have to say about squares.
