    Never seen one stupid episode of that crap. There was a poll I saw on FB that asked who has never seen an episode of it. I took the poll just to see the results. If you have not seen an episode you are in .7% of the population :facepalm:

    Not even one percent of the population hasn't seen an episode, thats pretty sad IMO.

    I mean I have my shows I like to watch, but I record them and watch when I have time. Typically I end up with 5 or 6 episodes of a show by the time I get around to watching one.

    Fishing, dealing with the boats and drinking beer apparently take up to much of my free time when not working. :notsure:

    I'm with you two. I've never seen an episode of Game of Thrones. But I will say this... It's not because I haven't wanted to watch it. I'm just so far behind now and I know a lot about what happens in the show by hearing others talk that I'll just never get around to watching it. But I did binge watch Breaking Bad, Banshee, every single episode of the first season of True Detective (in one night btw), and now I'm caught up in Billions on showtime. I did re-watch Band of Brothers a few Saturdays ago though I do that at least once a year. That is a series that I think everyone should watch at least once in their life.

    @Pchop If you ever get around to watching it, I think Banshee would be right up your alley. It's a fucking awesome series on Cinemax.

    Agreed on the BoB, I own the box set. I'll watch it on the PS4. Love that series. Plus its pretty historically accurate and in the box set you get the interviews with the actual guys that were in the unit at the beginning and end of each episode. If you dont have the box set, I highly suggest you get it. I watch it about once a year as well.

    Thanks on the Banshee one, I'll have to check it out.

    Actually it's less than 1% of those that bothered to answer the poll. Pretty sure the percentage of population would be higher, except the same demographic who havent seen GOT, are the same demographic that couldn't be bothered to answer stupid polls.

    We stand alone together brings a tear to my each time I watch it.


    As far as Banshee goes, I think you'd like it. That was the least graphic video I could post here. The guy that plays the lead character is driven by pure determination. IIRC it's 4 seasons long and it's just a good watch. The series ends like you would want it to also which so many series get wrong.

    You're in the majority. I wanted to watch it but I'm too far behind and I already know to much so a lot of it wouldn't be a surprise.

    It took me about two weeks to watch Breaking Bad. Everyone said I needed to watch it so I finally set down and finished it. I see what all the fuss was about. Damn good show. Though they did leave out a few key ingredients for manufacturing Meth (for obvious reasons).

    Even knowing what happens, it's still a good binge watch. If only for the bewbies.

    I haven't seen an episode of Breaking Bad or Band of Brothers.

    As have I but I’m a bit disappointed in the screenwriters as they’ve completely lost the plot of the books and are now just throwing stuff at the wall

    After that glowing review, you can watch every episode on the HBOgo app on your AppleTV.

    I mean if they had material to go on instead of relying on the writers.

    Oh I know... I see it every time I log into HBO. I just don't know if I have it in me to watch the entire series.

    I’m not too sure if this is in compliance with the “thread rules” but....

    I just wanted to say that my heart goes out to the families and those affected by the tragic and terrible event that took place in Colorado yesterday and everyone in this country who has had to deal with these types of unacceptable, sick behaviors & actions. I don’t know why this is happening but, I do know that the people who are carrying out these acts of unnecessary violence are sick individuals who are praying on the innocent and this needs to stop. I don’t know about you guys but, I’m beyond tired of this happening. Hate and separatism is slowly infecting our homeland and attempting to rot us from the inside out. We need to find a way as a community, as a state, as a nation to put an end to these horrific acts and keep our children, families, and communities safe.

    I don't have an answer to this problem. I do know the posturing both sides will put up after this incident just like they always do. But nothing will be accomplished. There is a very easy way to stop school shootings. It costs money but it can be done. You know the one school that hasn't had a shooting? The school where a President's children go to school. There are resources out there that could be enacted to provide protection for all schools but again... money. I walk into my daughters school and all it takes is one look around and I just shake my head knowing what could happen and what needs to be shored up. But, even if all the resources in the world were thrown at the schools all it would accomplish is moving the address of the shooting. Anyone hell bent on carrying out something horrific like this will do so where they can get the most attention.

    Mental health plays a huge part in this. Until we come to grips and realize that we need to find a way to revamp the mental health system I fear these events will keep on occurring. Just my take.
