    I disagreed with everything you said here until the last line.

    I happened upon Girls the other day and they had that fat grossling playing ping pong naked and for a moment, I hated the fact that I had a penis. I've never been so uninterested in seeing a naked woman. It was depressing.

    Then I put on Spartacus and watched dry-humping fake sex with the hotties they have on that show, and all was good. LOL

    Spartacus is for the ghey,like WWF. A chance to watch big muscley sweaty male bodies with just enough women thrown in to pretend it's not to watch big muscley sweaty male bodies.

    GOT>>>>>Spartacus
    I thought the second season of Spartacus was terrific.




    Not a big fan of War of the Damned so far but maybe it will turn itself around. Last week's episode showed some life.

    Not the slow pace. It's the fact that the producers and writers feel obliged to devote 33% of the show to whatever boring thing Margaret is occupying her time with every episode. I still like the show overall and thought it got better towards the end of last season but holy crap the filler storylines are brutal.

    I agree with this, and the only thing i can come up with is they are trying to diversify their viewership by continuing to have a lead female role.

    Shes completely played out IMO as is Jimmys mother.

    spoiler coming...

    I was extremely ticked off after they killed off Jimmy.

    Think he was the most dynamic character and so much could of been done with him.

    with that said they surprisingly made me forget about him with an excellent third season.

    Two best characters are Richard and Chalky, IMO...

    GOT is excellent! My husband started reading the books and got me hooked on them.

    We've only seen Season 1 because we don't have HBO (or Showtime) and have to get it from Netflix, though I think a DVD buy might happen. He's rented S1 twice so we could watch it again. Can't wait for Season 2.

    Same thing with Boardwalk. Only see it on Netflix but like that show, too. I've always been fascinated by the late teens, 20's, Prohibition, and Steve Buscemi is terrific.

    Not sure about the Margaret story line. It gives Buscemi's character some background, but I don't know how what happens because we're a season behind. But, for me, it doesn't make me watch the show more. Maybe I'm not a typical female viewer, though.

    Chalky, Omar, . . . what's not to like?

    Yeah. HBO pretty much sucks nowadays. GoT and Boardwalk are the only decent shows left, both of which are great. "Girls" needs some eye candy and "Newsroom" is too political.

    As for "Spartacus" they got dealt a sh*tty hand when the original actor they cast for Spartacus took ill. Sadly he has passed. The first season was terrific and was very popular. Then they were forced to scramble for the second season when the actor got sick and it has never been the same. This season is easily the worst, I haven't watched all the episodes, but if you know the story of Spartacus, you know it is coming to an end shortly.

    You guys crack me up...Girls is SUPPOSED to be about less than beautiful girls and Newroom is SUPPOSED to be political.

    That said, Schindlers List needed more hotties,

    I think Boardwalk is an excellent show and that this past season was sensational. I don't consider it slow at all but I'd watch anything with Buscemi and Omar in it. Love Harrow though, just an amazing character and acting job.

    GOT, although it's hard to keep track of all the players and locations, is a great show also. Loved how last season ended, pretty creepy.

    HBO is too far up their own ass with their original programming. Boardwalk can be a great show, but I'm sorry, I just don't buy the writing. The characters and dialogue are far too smart and philosophical for who they are -- Prohibition-era bootlegging thugs. The self-importance, even pretentiousness, of Boardwalk is suffocating. That said, I loved Bobby Cannavale as Rosetti. Of course they had to kill him off.

    As far as Girls, I could write a 30 page dissertation on why that show sucks and why the main actors are terrible people.

    Boardwalk doesn't even use their best characters.

    Capone/Chalky/Lucky/Bugsy etc. they dominate the screen anytime there on it.

    The show should be the best on television when you add in the fact that it takes place in an incredible time.

    I think they are supposed to be terrible people? I haven't been able to figure it out from the first 5 or so episodes the wife has made me watch. Either that or it is just so blind to its nepotism, elitism, and utter idiocy, that she and the writers actually think they are being "real" or something. Sort of like "Kids" back in the day.

    I avoided GOT at first because it felt like I was just watching a reduced version of the books, but once I went through S1 and 2 a few weeks ago, I'm hooked. Book 3 is by far the best and most bat sh!t insane, so looking forward to S3

    I agree these are some of the best characters, but part of the reason their scenes are so great is because you dont constantly see them throughout the season.

    Love(d) ASOIAF books, love GoT on HBO. The one casting choice I question is Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister). While I loved seeing her get railed in 300, that's about it. She sucks. And ALWAYS has the same annoying expression on her face.
