Now watching....
« on: April 06, 2012, 06:20:29 pm »
Hey everyone!

I opened this topic to discuss, recommend, or whatever that is related with TV series that we watch.

I enjoy watching Private Practice, Grey's Anatomy.

Recently, I have heard so many good comments about HBO's Game of Thrones that I decided to watch. I was captivated from episode 1! Watched season 1 in 2 days and the one just began. I luv it!

Anyways, I am open to suggestions right now since I have a lot of free time.

Anyone else can recommend any other good series? Your suggestions will be appreciated :)

For me it's:

Game of Thrones
Castle
Deep Space Nine
Downton Abbey
Once Upon a Time
The Big Bang Theory (last episode was with Stephen Hawking  :biggrin: and the one before with L. Nimoy! :D )
Terra Nova (but Fox killed the show so there is only one season)

and... Sherlock, but that didn't really hit me up.
But then again, who does.

Ok, I think I'm a little Kristish  :evil2:

Game of Thrones
Downtown Abbey
Once Upon a Time
Deep Space Nine (I watch it during my trip to work  :ninja:)
Sherlock (it hit me, though)

And Fringe, the one I can't not watch (with GoT, of course!) I was a lostie too, when it was the time.

Yes, the majority of these series I download but... with Games of Thrones, after downloading all the episodes, I finally managed to buy the blu-ray. I wanted to watch these series with full quality!  :nana:

Good news: HBO has confirmed that GoT will have a 3rd season. Apparently based on the first half of the third book.  :yeha:

Yup, I read it in Facebook. If audience don't fail, we'll have at least 7 or 8 seasons (7 books... one of them produces two movies...)

Well, first of all I do not get why it should not have a 3rd season? It is a very successful show as far as I can see everyone being so high abou it... Or those nuts wanted to cancel another successful show like they did with Terra Nova?
But then again, who does.

Speaking of GoT....

I was reading about when season 1 and season 2 began.

Season one: Began April 17, 2011 and concluded on June 19, 2011

Season two: Began 1 April 2012....

This means that for a third season, we would have to wait another 10 months  :afaid:

I think that's insane  [url=http://www.smiley-faces.o

By the way, I forgot to mention I enjoyed so much The Walking Dead. It's awesome!

Currently watching: Person of interest, Grimm, Supernatural, Fringe.
Game of thrones is actually just porn.. really too bad, I used to love the books, so much magic and such a mystery to be discovered.  In books after reading it for 5 - 6 hours not even one sex scene happenes, and even when it does it is described far less explicit than it is shown here. In one episode you get at least one rape, whores and more whores... Now we can see how many people are hypocrite, they wouldn't watch porn, but they would watch it if it was wrapped up like it is here. I had very high hopes for this show, too bad the emphasis here is on sexual arousal and not on a fantasy story the Game of Thrones truly is.

That bad? :unsure:

Honestly speaking, I know neither the original nor the series. But I see how disappointing this must be for you.

Cheers, anyway!

I don't mind the porn XD!

Although sometimes I think, is it really necessary? but it doesn't bother me.

The show still has a lot of intrigues and plots going on. Markus, try it, I think you might like it.

I wouldn't mind the porn if there really were that much in the original story.. it lacks the grandeur I imagined when I was reading the books.I guess I had a different and way better imagination. In general I like to watch tv shows when I watch tv shows, and porn when I watch porn. I prefer not to mix it in the same thing. It is worth trying thou, if one is interested in a fantasy world.

I still haven't seen the last 2 episodes of GoT and the last 3 eps of Once Upon a Time :)

I guess the book I bought when Kerstin was here (the first book) I will let untouched until the hospital stay. Long time alone there - will need something to concentrate my mind on.
But then again, who does.

Is it really so good?

Hm :)

I'll check it tonight then - if possible. As I haven't read the books yet I really wonder what's going to happen with Ygritte and such.

I have only read first book, and after I watched the second season. When the second season is over (in a week :bawl:) I don't think I'll be able to avoid reading the second, the third, the fourth and the fifth books (not more, as no more are written yet  :cht: ).

This one is a different episode... it has something that happens for first time in the show. But it's good. Very good. :med2:

DON'T tease me :D

I wish to read all the books. Now I am going to read the second one "A Clash of Kings" but the first part of third book "A Storm of Swords" was sold out in the shop, I hope the idiots will order it soon. :(
For the first one - I have it but I do not feel like reading it right now when it's so short after I saw what's going on there. So I will read it later or with the other books.
Reading it in English btw. Not all translated to my language and also sold out - and - I really enjoy reading in English if I am able to understand. :)
But then again, who does.

I have them all in English too  :wOOt: I'm trying to read in English if the book is written in English, and in Spanish or Catalan if they're in any other language (let's say... with Haruki Murakami or Jonas Jonasson I won't give a try to their native language, I'm sorry  :evil2:).
