Justified is pretty decent. I am on season 1, episode 5 on Netflix at the moment. Not really a flowing storyline it seems to have a new "bad guy" every episode that is either shot or wounded but there is a carry over story about his family and love life so far. Overall a decent show but it hasn't got me hooked yet.

Trying Vikings this afternoon (day off). Hopefully it will fill the void for Spartacus and the walking dead. If not game of thrones will be my only guilty pleasure lol.

Hang in there with Justified - it just gets better and better, and the character development improves with time. The most recent season is awesome.

Is that what happened? I am just watching via tracker on MLB.com (don't have Sportsnet). Why isn't Dickey's catcher starting (the guy they acquired with Dickey)?

No, Gibbons said that he won't match catcher with Dickey. What could have been a double play and out of the inning ended up being a passed ball and Cleveland scored 2.

No biggie, but Arencibia is definitely struggling so far

Why not? Seems like a smart move, particularly early on. Let Arencibia practice with Dickey for a while before forcing him in that situation, particularly since Dickey was away for much of Spring Training for WBC. It's only 1 every 5 games...meh I am no baseball expert though...just hoping for the best for the Jays...

I just think that Arencibia is that good of a catcher and he's much more offensively able (I say this as he strikes out).

I guess the thinking is that getting JP familiar with Dickey is a good idea especially if his catcher gets injured you have another guy who can catch him.

I guess that the positive of a 162 game season is you have time to figure things out

Only sad thing is the main actor who played Spartacus had to resign after season 1...he got cancer...replacement is alright but just does not have the screen presence that Andy Whitfield commanded.
He actually passed away soon after his cancer returned after beginning to film season 2. Had a wife and young children. Very sad.

Through the first 2 seasons of Breaking Bad after 3 days. Season 2 has been a little stale imo but from many people I've heard it picks up from Season 3 onward?....

Anyone watching Vikings on History? I believe it's only 5 episodes into existence and I've been enjoying it so far. It's kind of like Game of Thrones but with less political stuff and more battles.

Yep, been watching it since the moment it aired...pretty damn good. Few minor complaints, but I am that guy that for some reason sees flaws or poorly researched set things etc. I keep it to myself, though I do mutter a lot and drink more when I do notice them.

I'm currently slogging my way through Haven (just started season 3). Watching a show because the lead actress plays a character in you favorite video game series isn't a great idea.

No idea how this season has managed to make it to four seasons.

Ugh, the worst thing about watching a new show is not being able to stop. I've been up until 4am the last 2 nights watching BB, every time I say "This is my last episode tonight" it always ends with me wanting more, then saying "I'll just watch the first 10 minutes to see what happens". And then I'm back where I started.

Happens to me as well...I burned through HIMYM first 7 seasons in a very, very short time.

Swearing doing that off now, I think I learned my lesson. Was a walking zombie for days and my mood was foul.

Worse is when I read books...I used to burn 60-70 pages an hour in my prime reading days. Burned through The Stand just read and slept when I passed out...not even sure if I ate anything.

Exactly this thing happens to me EVERY SINGLE TIME I watch a new show. Part of the reason why I don't want to start watching a new show. I love to follow shows, but I really have to be clever enough to realize that I don't have time to do that **** again. And no, no way I have enough self control just not to do it!
