I finished watching Shameless season 1 now and I absolutely love the show. Right from the first episode you are introduced to different family members of the Gallagher clan and just as soon as you meet them, you care about what they are doing and saying. I haven't seen too many shows that Ive gotten so attached to so fast. The storyline is very different then your typical show. It's about showing how a poverty stricken family gets by on a day to day basis without having their mother around and a drunk father who may as well not be. Emmy Rossum and William H. Macy give great performances episode by episode. 1 more thing that's unique from most other shows that I regularly watch is that the show seems to operate more on an a contained episode by episode basis more than most. Now this isn't meaning that there isn't a bigger storyline running throughout the whole season, it just definitely uses that storyline in the background and sometimes even sprinkled into the storyline of the week.
Ive only watched season 1 but season 2 ended in early April so there are 2 seasons out there. I highly recommend and I definitely don't see enough love for this show on here.
Wow, I had never seen the Krusty for Kongress episode.
Edit: Holy crap, where was I during season 14 of The Simpsons. Been watching it the last 2 days and I had never seen about 20 of the episodes. Homer goes to Rock and Roll fantasy camp? Krusty for Congress? It's like finding a lost pyramid in the desert or a lost cherry in dessert.
Wow, what a movie. I went in expecting a brain dead Gosling-esque Fast and The Furious bastardisation, did not expect something on the same tension level and superb acting of Taxi Driver.
Gosling was superb. He was able to emotionally engage me with his characters plight, without even speaking many lines during the entirety. His body language and ability to act out tension was awesome.
Yeah, I would definitely recommend this film to any one. If you like suspension build up, little dialogue and some brute violence, this is definitely going to be your cup of tea.
I REALLY wanted to like this movie, but for some reason it just didn't appeal to me as much as I thought it would. I know it was a neo-noir film, but I felt like at certain times it tried to hard to be too "artsy", (particularly the elevator scene). There were definitely great moments as well though. Ryan Gosling was superb.
I'm about to start Lost from the beginning, once I have time. Some one told me it is confusing as ****.
It is confusing as **** because you get a lot of questions early on, and instead of getting answers to them, you get maybe 1-2 answers, but 4-5 new questions to replace that. But its a fun ride through the series. I watched the first 5 seasons all in one shot and finished just in time to watch the final season as it aired. I semi-started re-watching it with a friend (who only saw part of season 1 years ago). If it was up to me I would be much further along, but he's slow. Still, I think its totally worth the time it will take to watch it all.
