Tim Roth is one of my favorite actors ever, mostly due to Legend of 1900 which is the best movie barely anyone has seen.

This looks like shit.

He made Lie to Me.

When she crossed over, she was just a ship. But when she came back... she was bullshit!

They had a really good concept, a good twist...and then spent the last 3 episodes passing the Idiot Ball around.

He never should've wasted his time with Lie to Me (still watched all of it).

It was.  I'm utterly serious here chaps ;  I watched this so YOU DON'T HAVE TO.  If I catch anyone watching this, I'll take it personally because otherwise I've wasted hours of my life.

Exactly what I meant.  Just watching him be fucking bored of people's bullshit was worth the time spent.

Been watching The Equalizer again (was a big fan in its original run).  Very 80s but a good show and its amazing the people who show up on it that went on to greater things. Woodward is totally boss too.

The theme music on that was awesome too.

Interesting. I too have been watching the equalizer, but for some reason they call it 'person of interest' these days. Its quite good and a surprise Amy Acker has appeared. I like the dog.

Last ep I watched had Kevin Spacey in it. His second earliest imdb entry.

Actually, no, Person of Interest has reincarnated into Wisdom of the Crowd.  I wish they had just not canceled Person of Interest since it was a much better show.  Both CBS, too.  The only thing I didn't much like in Person of Interest was Fred.  I didn't like her in Angel, either.

I like her though.

I'm really, really liking this show.  Also, since I came to it late, it has an end, so I can just graze on it liberally.

I really love the dog.

I enjoyed the show up until Amy Acker's character became a regular. At that point I felt it really jumped the shark and I couldn't enjoy it as much. There was also one event I realized killed my interest in the show, but not knowing where you're at I won't discuss.

There it is. I didn't want to say too much, but yeah. That's where the whole show shifted for me and I lost interest. It wasn't the same after that.

But in fairness, at least they're not dicking around anymore with vagueness ;  it's an AI.  Only Harold seems to be resistant to the idea at this point.

Carter went over to her own show. They didn't kill Carter. Carter killed Carter

I found the show to be super tedious until Amy Acker's character became a regular. At that point the show really picked up and became consistently enjoyable.

Thus proving myself to be the anti-Merusk.

Also, yeah, the actress that played Carter jumped ship to Empire. Which suited me fine -- I wasn't a fan.

Amazon making a The Lord of the Rings prequel show: http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=176060&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=2316587
Quote
“We are delighted that Amazon, with its longstanding commitment to literature, is the home of the first-ever multi-season television series for The Lord of the Rings,” said Matt Galsor, a representative for the Tolkien Estate and Trust and HarperCollins. “Sharon and the team at Amazon Studios have exceptional ideas to bring to the screen previously unexplored stories based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s original writings.”

Set in Middle Earth, the television adaptation will explore new storylines preceding J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring. The deal includes a potential additional spin-off series.

They probably paid far too much for the rights since Netflix was also interested. I wish they'd do series based on something like Robin Hobb's books instead.

Because at least half of all movie/tv execs greenlighting things are marketing cobblefucks that could not imagine making a property that wasn't already a well-known IP.
