Terry and June. I like to guess what will happen when they are having the orange juice in the opening credits.
Bring back Bond!

you've got a hell of a journey ahead.

I liked this season. Although I wonder if it conflicts with the spirit world as set up in the first avatar series.

If you're Familiar with the last air bender series I'd like to know what you think when you finish.

I never saw The Last Airbender, so I came to Korra with no preconceptions.

Last air bender is incredible. If you enjoyed Korra's first season you should enjoy last air bender ( series not m nights butchered version) IMO the original series is even better than Korra's first.

Season 2 has a great story but I won't spoil it.

I caught an episode of the old Wonder Woman show with Lynda Carter on an oldies channel the other day. I loved it as a kid, but watching it now, I couldn't help laughing at the level of cheese. It was hard to tell if it was meant to be funny, in the way that the Adam West Batman show was, or whether it was an accident.

Watching storage wars and Dave Hester returns. The man is repugnant last I remember he was suing A&E over wrongful termination making all kinds of accusations. I'd rather Barry come back than Hester.

Tuesday night Dave gets in the face of the female auctioneer, she kick him out of the auction, I wondered where Dan was and why he didn't kick the bum out do a search it turns out Dan had a double brain aneurysm back in June nearly dieing. This makes what Hester said even more unforgivable. We didn't watched the second show because we don't like Hester and hate the stress he causes on the show.

I have not watched it in forever I remember it being very bad but better than the spiderman show. It was sad Lynda Carter very pretty but clumsy when she was spinning around transforming. Aimed at girls it I thought it was a 1970s feminist political tool, maybe a little anit-1970s Bond too.
Just sad young girls were supposed to like because they were girls and it was so bad. I never had the impression is was done in the Batman campy style In batman it was easy to tell it was done on purpose and honestly batgirl was a better feminist role model.

Strangely enough, I don't remember it even occurring to me that it was not aimed at me. At the time, I saw it as just another '70s adventure show. Of course, it helped that Lynda Carter was one of my earliest TV crushes, along with Lindsey Wagner, the Bionic Woman. I now follow both ladies on Twitter. Wagner hardly ever tweets, but Carter seems very nice.

The girls I knew were thought wonder woman is "our" hero, superman and spiderman were big so they kid of felt they had to cheer for her.

We were watching these show in re-runs weekday afternoons had no clue they were not new shows. New to us was good enough i guess. :)

BTW I love Lynda Carter and Lindsey Wagner as well. To of the classier 70s leading ladies IMO.

On one of the new episodes Laura, Dan's wife, said something about him being out of town and I wondered if that was actually a reference to his health issues. I miss him, but I like Laura.She is very no-nonsense, especially where Dave is concerned.

Do NOT get me started about Dave. I can't stand him. I kinda wonder if their ratings were going in the toilet, thus the reason for bringing him back? Nobody likes him. I'd much rather have Barry back(though I thought his spin-off show was a bit of a snoozefest.)

I initially wasn't too sure about Gotham, but I have to say, it's slowly growing into one of my favourite programmes (not that there's much competition on TV right now).

Anyone watching season 2 of Broadchurch? It doesn't do the case for James D'Arcy as Bond any favours - his role in this is about as un-Bondlike as it's possible to get. Then again, babbzy@aol.com would probably regard that as a point in his favour.

D'Arcy played Ian Fleming in Age Of Heroes, he has the right look for Bond, which would rule him out from getting anywhere near the role.

D'Arcy is also in Marvel's Agent Carter, and I too agree that he has the right look for Bond. Based on this madness we're in right now, he's better off not to get mix with Babs.

D'Arcy was in a short lived A&E(Arts and Entertainment) show called Those Who Kill(an adaptation of a Danish show-a lot of those right now!)
