    Yeah, same here. "talking...talking...boob...talking...dead guy...talking"

    I really wanted to get into it. Im sure the overall story is quite interesting, but it just couldn't keep me watching it.

    I'm rockin Heroes, Knights of Prosperity, Trailer Park Boys (old, i know), and Sarah Silverman Program on my "to watch" list.

    blah on all of you

    it's treachery, layered like an onion, in the middle of a civil war, while examining the effect it has on common person

    it's fucking awesome if you just watch it

    i expected "gladiator" and got "the good shepherd".

    I was hoping for violence, action, and the colosseum. and i got nothing.

    I've never seen anyone get so butt hurt because people don't agree with them. You like the type of show it is, others don't... build a bridge and get over it.

    you obviously haven't read many of my posts, that isn't even close to butt hurt

    I was only saying that the show was more chess match then gladiator pit

    yes, i have read a lot of your post and you are an intellegent person, however, you get real annoyed/butt hurt when someone doesn't agree with you. You always try to find one way or another to insult them for not agreeing(sp?) with you. You may not intentionally do it, but that's how some people can/will persive(sp?) it.

    +1, I'm almost tempted to take up a collection to keep it going

    I guess the season 2 premier ran awesome ratings, maybe between that and DVD sales they'll change there mind.

    Rome was the shit: Surgery, running water, hot tubs, birth control. We weren't able to reach their level of techonology until after the civil war (outside of fire arms)

    Im JUST getting into the Sopranos. Im doin the A&E thing each week, which shows two episodes each week starting from the beginning. They're just 'bout 1/2 way thru the firist one.

    Spaking of HBO series... Curb is the motha fuckin bomb!! hilarous stuff. Btw, if you have hbo on demand, watch "the Pretty boy project" or something similar to that name. Seriously, its actually pretty funny.
