falafel_musings: (breaking bad 3)
"Everyone dies in this movie, don't they?" )
More Breaking Bad meta and tributes to come soon from me. Though beyond my current core obsession, I have been looking towards new shows. I finished The Walking Dead S1 last night and while it feels like a bit of a, well, zombie soap opera I am really taken with the visual look of the show and I tend to like post apocalypse survival stories, even if that's all they are about - survival. I need to see if I can borrow S2 DVDs from somewhere.

Also has anyone been watching The Newsroom? I feel like I want to like this show more than I do. It's not badly written by any means but it does feel like it's grasping to repeat The West Wing, especially by casting Jeff Daniels in the host role, using a well regarded aging movie star in the anchoring role like they did with Martin Sheen as the President. But it's really all about the news team. The characters are okay. I like McKenzie. I just don't know if I want to commit to watching an obvious West Wing substitute show. The West Wing was great but there should be no substitute. It's like trying to watch Caprica after finishing Battlestar Galactica.

Lastly, I've realized that my library finally has the first three Big Love seasons on DVD. So I've ordered S1. [livejournal.com profile] lenina20 reminded me recently that I've been promising to watch that show for years.
