So who watches "Once Upon A Time" on ABC?

It feels like a fleshed out version of the movie series "The 10th Kingdom" to me.

Which in itself was a summer-long miniseries, back in the day on ABC.

... Now I wanna watch it again.  That was good stuff.

To me, Once Upon a Time is in the same vein as Mercades Lackey's versions of fairy tales.  Just enough there for everything to be familiar, but completely different from the source material.

I tried to watch Big Bang Theory, but I really didn't find any of it funny. Sheldon was more of an irritant than anything.

Fucking this. I feel like the majority of the Big Bang Theory's "humor" comes from how "awkward" and "weird" Sheldon is. Sorry if I don't find stereotyping geek subculture funny.

It's the Urkel Effect.   The Big Bang Theory has now become The Sheldon Show.

So, somebody else was reminded of The 10th Kingdom from their first impression of Once Upon A Time.

It breaks my viewer heart that BBT is the show that's killing Community. It really does.

I don't like BBT or the IT crowd even though people said I would. I just find BBT offensive and I can't get into IT crowd no matter how hard I try. I think it's the style.

I keep finding myself watching Golden Girls when it's on TV but when it's not I'm watching Star Trek and whatever else I feel like on Netflix.

I might be interested in looking around at haunted houses. You could say I have a morgue interest in the idea of the dead becoming a curse upon the living.

Ghost Hunter shows...I enjoyed watching some of syfy's and destination america's ones, like A Haunting and some others. The, ah, atmosphere of Dead Files is its strongest point, so I like that one too.

On the IT Crowd... I kind of agree. I found the first episode amusing, but once I got to the other episode... most of the time I was bored. It was like a fully blown balloon that later deflated and it's... just not fun anymore.

I will never get into the Big Bang Theory. It's mostly strawman fanboy stuff, aside sexism ("Okay, here's the episode about some girls going into a comic shop, girls don't go to comic shops! That's what funny about this episode!") and other irritant shit. More shameful, some of my idols (like Wil Wheaton and other stars of Star Trek: The Next Generation) have to embrace this lousy program because they're occasionally a part of it.

I must say, I had rather low expectations going into season 4 of Dexter. Dexter getting married and having a kid, how could that possibly go right? Boy was I wrong about that. It starts a little slow, but once you get to episodes 8 and 9, lets just say some really interesting shit goes down.

Community's season finale is tomorrow night. I think they may have finally jumped the shark by allowing the darkest timeline to exist outside of Abed's head.

Also, was anyone else irked by the introduction of dragonformers to Transformers Prime?

Started watching dexter again. I forgot how much i liked it, but his method of killing is so BORING. Just a single stab, even though he brings so many sharp and pointy object yet he only uses the one.
