I dug up a copy of the unaired Wonder Woman pilot.  It was terrible, but worse than that the angle they took with the show was bad and the openning had no build up.  I can see why it didn't get picked up.

That chick is a straight piece of cheese though, albeit unlucky.

I watched the first 3 episodes of American Horror Story season 1.  Some the dialogue is pretty funny, but the show is so disjointed.  Dunno if I gonna stick with it.

The one show that I've been making a point to watch recently?  SPARTACUS:  Blood & Sand on STARZ.  It's been a pretty cool show to check out so far.  It's definitely following in the path that was set up by HBO's ROME but doesn't necessarily have to follow the historical timeline that series did with the story of Julius Caesar.  Of course it is noteworthy that Spartacus was a historic figure who led an uprising of gladiators.

So is anyone else checking out the series?

I've been watching it.  I like it so far.  If anyone liked the movie "300" then this is right up your alley.  However, I do feel the language is a bit excessive and overdone at times. The usage of it reminds of how Deadwood was.  I know they are trying to stay true to the time period.  However, I didn't think most of that language existed back then. Also, the blood is a bit exagerated when it comes to some of the battles.

This week I have been glued to WWII in HD on The History Channel.  It's absolutely amazing to see some of the footage they've put together for this series.  Almost everything in the series is in color, and the film was all scanned to generate HD images, and was digitally remastered to clean up the images.  It's amazing stuff to watch.  And the fact that it's almost all in color makes it that much more vivid.

I tried to catch this but keep forgetting.  Will see if they will have rerun.

Did anyone watch "The Prisoner"?  I have never seen the original series and tried watching the re-run yesterday.  I was able to get through the first half hour before I fell asleep. I found it very confusing.

I have about 40 Season Passes programmed in my TiVo.  Of course some of those shows are not currently airing (24, American Idol, some others).  Not to mention I watch some other programs not Season Passed like History Channel stuff (Nostradamus Effect, The Universe, Clash of the Gods, etc). I've been contemplating on scaling back.  I was questioning some of the CSI's but all three had pretty good season openers.  Amercian Dad has become very boring for me.  The Cleavland Show has some potential.  The new Survivor is awesome.  The only other new shows I took on were Melrose Place and The Vampire Diaries, both which are pretty good so far.  I will also watch the new V when it comes on in November.

I actually watched FlashForward last night.  It was OK.  The 2nd episode looked like it will be better.

Also, I forgot Scott Wolf is in V.  That's the kiss of death.

I thought FlashForward was great. It had all the elements to keep me intrigued and wanting more. Though, I can definitely see where the show could go in the wrong direction easily. Let's hope they keep the mystery going...

When does V start? The original terrified me as a kid but I would like to check this out...

Wow, I guess I don't watch jack.

Outside of my weekly Jets game, the only show I tune into each week is Hell's Kitchen.
