    It's pretty much the entire volume to be fair! Still not complaining about anything only that the last season seemed short for some reason... there was only 10 episodes in the last one considering how much they could have covered! Not back until next March either :(

    I disagree, I think we'll only get to the end of book 3 by the end of season 4 for the most part. Parts of book 4 and 5 will get used but yeah I guess we'll find out.

    Well no shorter than any other year, 10 episodes is all they can realistically afford to make a season. It's almost an impossible task to adapt the books into 10 hours a year but they've being doing pretty well so far. I just want the next book, probably another 2 years away yet though :(

    Painful that GOT is only 10 eps per season when the standard nowadays is 13. Although HBO do seem to go for less now, season 2 of The Newsroom was only 9 eps.

    My fav TV shows though

    1 West Wing
    2 Sopranos
    3 The Wire
    4 Battlestar Galactica
    5 The Shield

    Deliberately left out any shows still on or recently finished. Would most likely have the likes of Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones and Mad Men challenging strongly for a top 5 place

    My favourite currently running or recently ended would read something like this:

    Drama: 1. BB, 2: GOT

    Comedy: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The funniest show out there by miles.

    Genre: Supernatural. Not too sure what I really make of The Walking Dead, it could be so much better in my eyes. Has anyone played the walking dead game by telltale? The story in that is brilliant.

    As you can see my college education served me well :pac: Although I've slowed down in the last year, not able to keep up with everything like I used to.

    Sounds like the life :) How's the weather over there this time of year? Myself and the girlfriend are hoping to get away for a few days around the midterm break. Most likely end up in west cork or Kerry, nothing wrong with that either but wouldn't mind heading somewhere warmer!

    Still well into the 20s but regular storms this time of year which are actually impressive and worth seeing. Average of 25C for October apparently but fairly nice till December. Ryanair fly regularly, well worth keeping an eye out for cheap flights.

    Did they not extend the episodes of GoT to an hour and ten minutes last season to get more in?

    Top 5

    1. The Sopranos
    2. The Wire (although i basically had to flip a coin on these two)
    3. Breaking Bad
    4. GOT
    5. The Walking Dead

    Also for those of you who enjoy a good series as much as myself this is worth a butchers



    Don't know how they have managed to get that pair together on tv but they have and I think this looks quality! HBO don't fúck about!


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,339 ✭✭✭El Horseboxo

    Defo agree with OZ and Rome both brilliant!
    Cant see the humor in Curb Your Enthusiasm... my mate constantly raves about it but i find it irritating! Freaks & Geeks was good a few years back, very coming of age and with some early performances from a lot of current hollywood A-Listers!

    Curb your enthusiasm def ain't for everyone. I Just love the awkward humor in it. And that Leon Black character is brilliant.

    Great trailer, first i'd heard of it, looks good! Thought Mccoaughey had forgotten how to act until I saw The Lincoln Lawyer, and.. Killer Joe :eek:

    Man, I have to say, it was the most amazing pizza I've ever had..

    I loved it. She loved it. Even her mother loved it!

    Successful night.. ;)

    That pizza looks the business :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,686 ✭✭✭Danger781


    That pizza looks the business :)

    Cheese base, mixed with almound flour with a hint of garlic topped with tomato and bacon sauce, more mozarella, fried pieces of chicken, pancetta, mushrooms, onions and grated parmesan on top..

    It was insanely filling! I had one slice and two pieces of broccoli and needed to take a long break before working my way through the second one!

    Barely a carbohydrate in sight.. :)

    All that glorious cheese cant be good though.... i was feeling sorry for myself the other day hungover and made nachos and cheese sauce, finished a whole pot off to myself and felt like crap for about two hours as it started to regurgitate... nice!:pac: such a delicously good idea at the time though!

    Yes it probably could be considered a litle too much cheese. Although I had half the pizza so that would be 80g of cheddar.. and 120g of mozarella.. So about half a block of cheese total isn't too bad to be fair

    Love Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia. New series out now too. Not much to do here during the week so I watch a ridiculous amount of TV.

    Never thought I would make it through an episode of Curb due to the fact that I hated uncomfortable humour, but loved it. Especially as its main improvised.

    I'm avoiding all tv forums, you laugh you lose, facebook and basically anywhere with memes which might contain Breaking Bad spoilers. Am just on the end of the second season but playing catch up quickly.

    On the plus side, I'm watching it by myself - there's no waiting for herself to watch it with me as she isn't interested in it!


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,339 ✭✭✭El Horseboxo


    I see there was a tornado in Ireland today. Some cool pictures and videos on the weather forum. Something I'd more so expect to hear about in my neck of the woods.

    By god, you'd know you're still in college....

    Just do yourself a favour, when you finish the study and sit your finals, don't go thinking that's the end of it. A few years back some genius in the EU came up with this great idea of continued learning in the workplace.

    It's great. Even when you pass all the exams related to your job or industry, they just introduce new ones.
