It does. The first season there are lots of characters to introduce. We found it difficult to remember who everyone was and what their job was. We have really enjoyed it.

House of Cards

GG, we ended up dumping it. It's just too dark for us, from both a lighting standpoint and script. Himself said he felt like he spent more time watching people in bed than he himself spent in bed! We've since moved on to political comedy - the discs for the first season of "Veep" are in transit to our town's library right now.

Castle ~ Series Finale

Well now, that series finale was...something. Nothing like trying to wrap up a bunch of story line endings into one neat package that answered a lot of questions - in 43 minutes! I felt a little winded by the time it was over, but at least the script writes did finish it off. Pretty much. I guess.

Gonna miss Kate, Richard, and all the rest of the gang. We thought it was a fun show. Now we can go back to watching NCIS LA on Mondays at 10.

I watched the final episode of Mike and Molly tonight. Then fell asleep about five minutes before the very end. But I will catch it on reruns I am sure.

I just loved the season's ending of Big Bang Theory. Also Doc Martin.

I loved the show. It was clever, it was witty, it was cool, it was good show all around. Darn, I wish it did not have to end. I still wonder what the true reason for the ending is. Show could have gone up for few more years, easily.

As far as ending goes. I did not like it at all. At all.

Re: Castle. I heard (read) that Kate and Lanie were not being re-signed for another season. Nathan Fillion was re-signed. I also heard there was a major issue between Fillion and Katic and that they never spoke to each other unless they were reading lines. All that together tells me she was the problem. No idea if it was over money or personalities or whatever.

I've been watching all The Sopranos reruns. Didn't realize how funny the mangled language is. For instance:
  • Christopher claims that Issac Newton created gravity after someone hit Newton in the head with an apple.
  • Tony talking about a guy very strange sexual proclivities says, "A guy like that is going out with a woman, he could technically not have penissary contact with her Volvo"
  • Another character, talking about his wife, says, "She's an albacore around my neck."
I've got three or four episodes left in the sixth and final season. Wish there were more.

That's how my Dad talked, and he wasn't even Italian! We'd have to translate some things he said to "outsiders". The porch post that held it up was a "pilster", not a pillar. "Dago"=Bagel - we always had to let Italian people know he wasn't using an ethnic slur. He had a whole boatload of them, just can't think of them right now.

We've never seen the Sopranos. I wonder if Himself would want to watch it later this year. TV time around here will resume when my baseball season is over!

It can be funny, but there's a lot of explicit, shocking violence. Be prepared for that.
