I like it. It's not something I would miss desperately if it were canceled, but I do generally catch every episode. I'd say finish out the second season and go from there.

I think maybe we're overdosing on it. Up til today when we got some more DVDs, it was the only thing we were watching so we were watching it four or five episodes at a time. Some programs you can do that with and some you just can't. I'll keep at it and space it out a bit more.

Rave: Luthor. There's the Superman story I want to see made into a movie.

Can someone suggest a few more good graphic novels about famous supervillains? I have The Killing Joke queued up already, but I feel like I could read a ton of these and enjoy them.

Rave: Sons of Anarchy. Like Baghead, we're late to the game on this one, but this show is freaking awesome. I never would have picked Katey Sagal for a dramatic role, but damn she pulls it off. And Ron fuckmothering Perlman!

God, I want a bike.

Rave: It's the Ryder Cup! I'm not big on watching golf on TV (that's right, even golfers can't watch golf on TV. I think the only reason it airs every week is as a sleep aid.), but I love the concept of the Ryder Cup. For the unaware: The Ryder Cup is where the United States gathers its finest professional golfers to take on an all-star team picked from everybody in Europe. There's also the President's Cup, held in off-years, that is the US vs. The Entire World.

I want to see more events like this. US vs. The World in anything you please. I'd even be down for an entire third Olympiad set up around that concept.

Mega-Rant: That game with the pitch, and the two-tone ball? Not the world's sport. Stop calling it that. More countries care more about golf. Golf is the world's sport. Think about it. Pitch football is the biggest sport in Europe, South America, Africa (excluding South Africa, which is more of a rugby and golf place), the Middle East, and Mexico. Look up the ten biggest countries in the world and tell me how many of them are known for their exploits on the pitch. ("Ummm...Brazil...and...um...Brazil.") So yes, Americans did embrace the World's game, and we did it over a century ago. Hell, three of the four biggest golf tournaments in a given year take place in the United States.

Rave: After being convinced to watch the American "Being Human", I recently started the original British "Being Human". Russell Tovey is now my favorite human being ever.

I would ruin Aidan Turner. Ruin him. His next of kin wouldn't recognise him when I was finished.

I've never seen the American version. How does it stack up against the original?

As with most US remakes of British tele, it sucked ass. Could have been good. Wasn't.

Although, I did not hate the pilot of "Elementary", surprisingly. I initially looked with disgust and disdain at Lucy Liu, but she didn't make me gag as Watson. Still not as good as Sherlock (because Benedict Cumberbatch), but Johnny Lee Miller was suitably unlikable.

I'm trying to figure out now if it was actually enjoyable or if I had my sights set so low on this show that anything that wasn't vomit-inducing was a pleasant surprise.

Yeah, yeah. Doesn't change that it was an awesome event. In fact, the ending is one of the reasons it's such a great event to watch.

There was an American Sherlock? I didn't know that at all. Of course, I never watched the British version either. In fairness, and has been discussed many times here, trans-Atlantic takeoffs quite often fail on both sides.

Go google his picture, Cid. You'll see what I mean. Although you'd really also need the accent for the full package.

You just reminded me of the British remake of "That 70's Show" ugh.
Yo Mav, I'm real happy for you and Imma let you finish but Hirschoff had the best sig trends of all time.

Not on Hulu, will not watch. CBS can suck one for that.

Rave: while I know Rorschach has had quite enough, I just saw an episode of the new(?) Russell Brand late night show on FX and found him to be very quick witted and funny.

Hmmm...maybe I should give it another go? Watched the first one and was profoundly unimpressed.
