A couple Devils references so far in the Sopranos. Some hats and a mention by Pauly about going to a Devils game. I'm loving this series so far. I have no idea why I've waited so long to watch it.

Has anyone ever actually read the book Black Hawk Down? I own the movie and have seen it a million times but I finally decided to read it the other week and it might be better than the movie. Much more of a comprehensive approach, obviously, to the whole battle. It's interesting seeing how they merged characters in the movie and left out some parts that you would think they wouldn't have. I recommend both especially the book by Mark Bowden.

Episode 11 of this season is one of my favorite episodes in the entire series. The end of this season gets pretty good.

The beginning of the third season definitely has had a different feel to it than the first two. I like it so far.

Do they change the intro for the fourth season? Still has the Twin Towers in it and I know the forth season is the first season to air after 9/11.

They took them out after the third season. Those premiered in 2001, but were out before September 11th. They were taken out for the next season.

Not sure how many of you are into network tv series. USA has some awesome series from Burn Notice, Graceland, White Collar and Suits. My personal favorite is Burn Notice. They are on season 7 and sadly it is the last one. I think 1-6 are on netflix. I highly recommend it if you are into Cia spy's and action

Season 1 Promo

Burn Notice lost me at some point. I used to follow it and it was pretty good but I just lost interest. It's the same story for virtually every other network TV series. They just become more of a chore to wait for and watch than anything. I stop looking forward to new episodes and just forget about them.

It's alright, It took me a while to figure out how to do it too. Copy and paste the link in the share feature on you tube. Just copy the part after youtu.be/ in each video. For instance in this particular video the sh6OVLa8lH8 part. Copy that, Click the you tube tag at the top of the box when you make a post, and paste the link in between those. Hope that helps! I'll embed it for you though.

Season 2 of a series is usually the "best" from a fan perspective because the characters are established, the plots can get more complex to play on that and after getting renewed they are usually a little more daring in the writing.

The Newsroom is not one of these series. I want to like it but aside from Sloan, Charlie, Jim and Will I just don't care about any of the other characters. Alison Pill as Maggie is nails on the chalkboard annoying to boot. They cast the wrong person there.

It has maybe 2 more episodes before it gets rotated out of our lineup.

Boardwalk Empire in 5 weeks! Woohooo.

Feel the same way, especially about Maggie. Seeing her with chopped hair has given me nightmares too I like how they use major storylines from the year before but the show has a few more episodes before it gets deleted. (Unless it pics up)

A Ben Stiller movie I won't cringe at that doesn't involve Robert De Niro?

http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/f...ofwaltermitty/

Could be cool.

And this movie feels like A Simple Plan meets No Country for Old Men (but I don't care - I loved both movies).

A Single Shot looks very interesting. Sam Rockwell is very underrated.

You should get through it quick. A couple crazy endings will force you to watch the next episode right away.

It was only like half a season so you should be fine.

Also, you asked about Dexter... What are your thoughts so far?

True, but it's finding time and then staying awake that I'm having issues with!

I've enjoyed the season so far. I'm not sure where it's going yet (and I didn't watch this past week)...I have found Deb way less annoying this season, but trying to figure out how it's going to end is very hard. I also don't like the fact that he hasn't killed anyone yet this season.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm already 2 episodes in thanks to my brother-in-law who was able to find the episodes.
