Ima havta part ways with you there, lol.
It
We're still on Bates Motel...after that, hopefully Vikings will be back.

@CatherineofAragon

If you liked Vikings, see if you can catch a BBC series called "The Last Kingdom".  It's set during roughly the same period, though that's kind of hard to tell given that Vikings has a somewhat squirrely timeline historically.  Ragnar's sons play prominent roles.  But this is told primarily (though not exclusively) from the English perspective.  Basically, it follows this English boy who is raised by Danes and has divided loyalties --  "The Last Kingdom" refers to Wessex and Alfred the Great, is based on historical novels by Bernard Cornwell. 

Absolutely love the way the series portrays Alfred, and the series builds pretty well as it goes along.

@Maj. Bill Martin

Thank you!  This looks really good.  Several of our shows are ending this year---The Strain, TURN, Bates Motel---and this looks like something to get into.  Appreciate it.

"Can't return a steak with a bite taken out of it"

@InHeavenThereIsNoBeer

All right, I should know what that refers to.  Give me a clue, please, lol.

Btw, @Cripplecreek, I apologize for sounding so snotty and rude when I responded to you about "Into The Badlands."  I really didn't mean it that way.  Sorry, my friend.

No offense taken but I think you would agree that Quinn (the barron) makes a far better villain than Neegan.

Nothing should make a man happier than knowing his government couldn't care less about him.
I'd rather lose defending the constitution than win at its expense.
Hitlers are born and die every day without notice. Its the morons who put them in power that are dangerous.

We're doing a rewatch of the season finale.  Rick should've put a bullet in Eugene's head.

Aiding and abetting the enemy is treason.... and should be punishable by death (IMO).
Time for unity in America! (better late than never)

Let me know how you like it.  I have to say that the last episode of the season was one of my favorite hours of TV ever.  There's some pretty good character development that really pays off.  And the season definitely progresses -- lots of important stuff happens.

New AMC series The Son, which I have taken an instant liking to for quotes like that.

What makes him dangerous is that he gets men to follow him willfully.

He gave a hell of a speech this week and then he went out and killed his son.

I see the actor who plays Floki on "Vikings" is now on into the badlands and looks pretty much the same.

Oh, crap, you had to go and do that, didn't you, lol!  I love Floki and I think Gustaf Skarsgaard is a fantastic actor, and now I'm going to have to check it out.

I can't tell if this is actually him or an actor who looks and behaves a LOT like him.

@CatherineofAragon Nevermind, you're safe. The actor is Marc Rissmann.

Have you done anything (install/uninstall/update) with Flash lately?  I believe the reason I don't see video links is because I don't install Flash and the software that the site runs on tags video links as being flash.

@Oceander - Just an FYI, could be a trend, or not.

I am really enjoying this season of iZombie, and I'm not too proud to admit it.

@Cripplecreek

I can understand why you thought it was Skarsgaard, though.

If you see Samuel Roukin in anything, please alert me, lol.

No, I haven't but according to what I've read, IE isn't being supported by Microsoft and they're going to phase it out.  Lately it's been doing all kinds of strange things.

I didn't really notice how good Bates was until I watched the series review leading into this season.  I'm recording, but not watching, this season so I can binge watch it.

@InHeavenThereIsNoBeer

Well, it's down to only one more episode for the series, and that's next week.  I'm going to really miss this show; the quality and its ability to grab you has stayed consistent throughout.  The last episodes are like a runaway train.  I'm impressed that the writers have been able to stay very true to the spirit of the movie, while never letting you be sure that you know what's going to happen. 

Freddie Highmore is young but I think he has great things ahead of him.  He wrote and directed a couple of this season's episodes.

Okay, Fargo goes on the list.  How many seasons so far?

@XenaLee, stick with Bates Motel, it gets even better.
