Happy Fourth of July!

Since we are Americans, we will be taking a break today to celebrate our own awesomeness.

In other news, Ern has stated to Leeard that for every episode of Breaking Bad Leeard watches, Ern will watch two episodes of Castle. Do y'all think that's a good deal?


  1. My TV buddy just did a marathon catch up of Breaking Bad and she didn't think it lived up to the hype. Disappointing. I haven't caught it yet but I'm a little sad to hear that... Leeard you'll have to let us know what you think, coming in late in the game.


    1. I can see how, at this point, fans have been overhyping it. It's never good to go into anything with great expectations. I will say that there are not many better shows on TV right now though, if any.

    2. Imo (and my limited viewing/knowledge of before 1990 shows)Breaking Bad is behind The Wire and The Sopranos as the best shows I have watched. You should totally watch it but just act dumb and pretend you haven't heard a thing about the show while watching it...Also, I thought it was one of the easier cable dramas to catch up to. (I feel the same with the FX dramas)

    3. I'd like to see a list of TV shows Ern and Learn have watched (that deserve a mention) :D I know you guys have Active and Cancelled shows...but I don't think you guys have that complete (with other amazing shows you guys watched from the past), right? Then we can answer the question "Do ya'll think that's a good deal?" :)

    4. We specifically said "on TV right now." The Sopranos/The Wire are over. Breaking Bad probably wouldn't be in our top five of ALL shows. Maybe our top ten. Maybe.

      And yeah, those lists are never gonna get updated, are they? haha.

      Leeard has watched wayyyyyyyyy more old shows than I have, so hopefully she answers this comment. I didn't start liking TV until the so-called "Golden Age" that hit around 2003-2012. I was like, "Woah, TV is better than most movies?!!"

    5. Heh. I'm the same as you, Ern. I haven't watched many old series..I was either playing outside with my friends (it was a popular thing back then, haha), at school, karate/basketball (Tae Kwon Doe for karate and YMCA for basketball), watching mostly cartoons (Hey Arnold!, Rugrats, Catdog, Fairly Odd Parents, Gargoyles, Animaniacs, Pokemon ,Yugioh, P, B & J Otters, Dragon Ball Z, Dexter's Laboratory, Ed, Edd, n Eddy, Power Puff Girls, Pinky and the Brain, The Angry Beavers, Ren & Stimpy, The Wild Thornberrys, Rocket Power, Kablam!, Invader Zim etc) or shows such as All That, Kenan & Kale, Lizzie McGuire, Out of the Box, Even Stevens, Boy Meets World, Full House, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, The Secret World of Alex Mac, Cousin Skeeter, The Wonder Years, Family Matters etc I was a casual TV viewer (and a noob to TV. Nick and Disney and saturday morning cartoons was what I thought were the best stuff on at the time)....and would avoid shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The X-Files (still need to check those shows out) I just watched whenever something good was on and when I was home and most often didn't care to miss an episode (though, sometimes I did care or for some shows I cared.) Right now I'm pretty hardcore...every episode of a show gets watched by me each and every week. I returned to TV after a very very long long break from it around 2008...went from Lincoln Heights to Kyle XY to Chuck to Breaking Bad to my current list of 30-80 or 90+ shows and more being added (even when I think I'm going to stop adding shows) Some of the shows I currently watch and some of the past shows I've caught up with (The Wire, The Sopranos) have changed the way I have thought about TV, view other TV shows and probably make older shows I used to watch seem terrible. ...Seriously, I think each night of the week has something good on. Each of the popular broadcast networks and cable networks have something good available. Good cartoons have been making a return. FX, AMC, HBO, ABC Family, Showtime, Starz, USA Network, TNT, TBS (only Cougar Town for me), SyFy, BBC America, The Hub, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central, Fox, ABC, NBC, CW, CBS, A&E, Nick (All Nick channels), Disney (All Disney channels) all have something good on. I think there hasn't been a time in TV where so many good things were on around the same time. You got teen dramas, cartoons, adult dramas, a couple of good sci-fi/fantasy shows (Fringe, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries), cartoons, etc, A large variety of shows, a large number of good shows, and shows that appeal to different age groups.

    6. (I'm sorry for doing this. I just like showing off what TV currently has to offer, haha) I don't watch a lot of these shows but hear great stuff about them. (I watch about most of the shows) Also, some shows I have dropped for a long time. (cartoons that have aired around 1990s and still going = mostly dropped) Some of these shows could be better then they are but are still somewhat fun to watch (Glee, Smash) Has there been a time with so much good stuff like this on?

    7. Nick: Legend of Korra :D
      Oh..and I know you said "on TV right now"..I just wanted to say/show how amazing Breaking Bad is to me. haha It's on my Top 5 since I haven't watched a whole lot of quality shows from early times or I don't think they might be as good as I remember them being. haha

    8. Was this long message annoying, haha? Sorry for the long read :( Imo, TV has been much better than movies these past couple of years. People complain about the price of cable TV but look what they have to offer. Broadcast Networks are also pretty underrated, imo. (NBC and CW rock. ABC rocks as well. Fox is pretty good and CBS is half good and half bad.) So...TV = Every night you get something good for a much lesser price then watching a movie every Friday night....and being introduced to horrible movies after horrible movies) I know it's not fair to compare TV to Movies....but man...>TV IS TOO DAMN AMAZING!

    9. Totally agree with all of this. Our childhoods and TV watching were similar. And hey! I did karate too. Not Tae Kwon Do, but Japanese. It's a good thing to make kids do. Maybe we should do the "active shows" page by network like you just did...It would make things easier to organize.
