    Plenty of people have not watched Treme
    You know nothing about film.

    Nintendo masks their lack of graphic quality with "quirky graphics and characters".
    I can honestly say, if at 19, I was a pro baseball player, I would have exactly 100% fewer broken bats and thrown helmets.
    I could have made a better TDKR
    I feel sad for your inability to just enjoy an entertaining movie without you being critical over it's components.

    WHAT ABOUT CURRENTLY AIRING SHOWS DID YOU NOT UNDERSTAND

    BTW, to make that list more current, replace Breaking Bad with True Detective. All you have to do.
    My brother and I always tried to make swords out of aluminum window sections. Then duel, my brother always calling for the power of Greyskull.

    I'm not done with the new season yet, but I'm pretty disappointed. The first 4 or so episodes are pretty great, but it really fizzles out after that. The first season, while great, is just silly fun (basically a political soap opera), and the first 4 episodes showed enough promise to make this the best current show, but it becomes so BLURCHFHSDF that I almost don't even care to finish it.

    So I worked OT at my job yesterday and today, which meant... I could marathon thru the entirety of House of Cards Season 1 and episode 1 of season 2 in two days. My thoughts. It's entertaining schlock. Fueled by great performances, editing, and cinematography... But ultimately, extremely hollow and kind of silly. For season 1... The show lost so much steam after ep 9 when the education bill fails. Part of that is just... We learn no character truly means anything to Francis and more importantly to the show. The next couple of episodes drag terribly till finally that final episode.

    And so it's not much of a surprise to me that as Ben says this peters out after episode 4 in Season 2. I definitely dig the show, but far from a masterpiece.
