Not until you mentioned it, no.  :D

On a different note, we started watching season 2 of Jack Ryan.  Only three episodes in, but enjoying it so far, despite the unrealistic aspects, like the lack of foreign policy fallout from a sitting US senator and his security detail getting gunned down in the street...

@Chris


Gotten any further?


Season 2 definitely focused more on action. I think they went a little over the top with that. I get Jack Ryan is supposed to be a vet, but he's a little TOO well trained. He does some stuff that's a little advanced for his supposed skill set.


No Abby Cornish in Season 2 either... >:(

It makes sense that someone was going to get cut when you bring in Noomi Rapace and Michael Kelly.

Except he marries Abbie Cornish’s character in the books so she’s still relevant

I'll watch anything where people get shot in the face

I was a able to sit through The Walking Dead, which I otherwise find to be horribly bad TV, just on the strength of the zombie head shots.

I still watch it but it really has gone downhill. I just finished S4 of Fear the Walking Dead which basically beat the proverbial dead horse. Can't believe they're making yet another Walking Dead spinoff show.

I think we're up to Ep. 5 now. We aren't quick with the TV watching.

Uber definitely needs to get shot in his masturbating hand...

Ever since the reboot it's been too much of the same old TWD. I didn't bother watching the most recent season.

I’ve found that with popular tv shows 5 seasons is usually enough, provided the writing is good and there’s closure to the story. TWD is one of those shows that started out great (except season 2) and now refuses to die. I absolutely love the character arcs but the plots have now become a bit formulaic and predictable.

Totally agree. It's rare that a show maintains quality past that point.  I wish there was more willingness by networks to plan for an end, rather than riding a show until everyone just collapses from exhaustion.

“Six seasons and a movie”

I deleted his post by mistake (fat fingers+mod-rights+Tapatalk= dumbassery).

Perfection is an incomplete first series cut short by a moronic network and a film directed by Joss Whedon.

God, I loved that show.  Occasionally, I dream of loving in an alternate universe where it got renewed a few times.
