    The Leftovers on HBO is awful.

    I forced myself to watch the first episode and turned the 2nd off halfway through.

    Also, if any of you watch "Under the Dome" and have not read the book or at least the Wikipedia page just prepare for eye rolling disappointment.

    Stop watching now. The ending is so brutally dumb the only thing I can compare it to is those old Goosebumps books for kids that usually had a stupid twist ending.

    Just stop.

    That's King's thing... good, solid stories... poor endings.

    King has even admitted as much.

    I made it 7 episodes into Mad Men until I gave up.

    If you think smoking cigarettes at work or having affairs is entertaining then it's a great show. Otherwise I just don't see the appeal.

    I guess maybe if I was older and appreciated the way it represented that era, but I found it painfully boring.

    I'll admit it's been a slow start but I'm still enjoying it. Have a feeling it's one of those shows you have to stick with a bit before it really gets its hooks in you.

    I did 4 seasons of Mad Men before telling the wife I would not be watching any more of it..
    Talk about a show that is entirely window dressing and never goes anywhere.. Ugh.

    I do think The Leftovers will be Okay. It will take time before the cards are shown..

    Penny Dreadful ended on a real upswing. Had the Josh Hartnet twist figured out about 2 episodes in though. Eva Green is a solid actress.
    I got a good laugh at the fate of Van Helsing..

    I'm behind.

    I got to catch up.

    I'm glad that it got another season and apparently a much bigger budget.
