Gentlemen and ladies of AMC,
I’ve seen you advertisements of the up-coming shows on AMC and to the point, they are depressing. They might have some entertaining value, but that is not what the season is about. You know what I mean.
How about something around the hope, courage, and sacrifice? How about something concerning the reason for the season, Jesus ?

Everyone talks about being more energy efficient and how helpful it is for the environment. Save our trees! Clean up pollution! I think that preserving our environment is a worthwhile endeavor, I really do. But more importantly for me, energy efficiency is about saving money. Here in New York, the cost of living keeps going up but my paycheck does not. I need to find a way to trim the fat on some of my bills. There are many things you can do around the house to save money that don’t cost much. Switching to compact fluorescent bulbs is one easy way. You don’t have to do them all at once; just replace each old bulb that burns out with a compact fluorescent one. Also, you should insulate your windows. If you don’t have double-paned windows, put up plastic. Speaking of windows, use your blinds and curtains wisely. Open them during the day to let the sun (and its warmth) in. Close them at night to keep the heat in. Once I take care of a few of these easy ideas, I plan to search online for New York energy rates to see if I can make any further adjustments to my budget.

Season 2 of the AMC series The Walking Dead begins on Sunday October 16, and I can’t wait. The show’s creator Frank Darabont succeeded in bringing zombies from the big screen to weekly television with his first season of The Walking Dead. AMC made a great choice on signing this show up and keeping it going after the first season. The first suspenseful episode had us follow Rick Grimes, a sheriff’s deputy, as he wakes up in the hospital, after a gun shot wound. Rick walks through the hospital, wondering where everyone is. He goes outside to find that the dead are walking.
In season 1 you’ll remember that at the very end of the final episode the CDC building was destroyed and the survivors drove away. I’m still wondering here were they are going? That’s where the new season will likely start off. I think it is likely that new characters will be introduced. In season 1 we saw the reuniting of a family, with Rick Grimes finding that his wife and child were still alive. But the wife had moved on. I am anxious to see if the tensions will rise in this threesome. It’s a definite that Rick and Lori Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln and Sarah Wayne Callies, will make it through season 2, but survival is up in the air for the rest of the cast. The only way to find out who survives and if there are even more survivors out there is to watch the show. I won’t miss an episode of this edge of your seat thriller.

It’s rare for television shows to take constant strides forward season after season. Yet, Breaking Bad has taken gigantic leaps and bounds forward with each and every episode.
Now in its fourth season, Breaking Bad is the very definition of “must see television.” This season has been a slow burn. While the first few episodes were great, they were mainly used to help set up the rest of the season. Now, as of this writing, the tenth episode has aired and the latest may have been one of the best episodes the series has ever produced.
After a major blowout between Jesse and Walter, and with a few episodes left in this season, it will be interesting to see what will happen. Will Jesse deal the lethal blow to Gus like Walter wants? Will Walter crack and just go after Gus himself?
Personally, I feel that Jesse will stand by Gus’s side. Throughout this season, Gus has built Jesse’s confidence. In the past Jesse has killed for Walter, yet all Walter has done is lead him down a path of destruction. Jesse has proven to Gus that he can produce Walter’s formula and that Walter’s services aren’t needed anymore.
These final few episodes of this season of Breaking Bad will be something you definitely do not want to miss. All of this will build towards next season, the final season. I’m not sure where exactly Breaking Bad will lead, but I feel that tough times are ahead for Walter White.

Hi…My name is Foxy Bonner and I live in Spokane, Washington. I have been unable to find anything about this years season (#5)of Mad Men. All that is available is on demand is the old seasons. Nothing is mentioned on daily viewing either. Did this series get cancelled? Or is it that programming in my area will not longer carry it? I do not understand how it works. I loved this series, especially when it was available so quickly on demand. Also what about the Rubicon series. Is that coming back? I hope so! Please let me know.
A great fan of both

My friend has always been big into wrestling. Well, actually it’s not called “wrestling”. It is more like an extreme martial arts type of fighting. There is an entire league and all fights are televised. I watched it one time and spent most of the time trying to figure out what was happening. In my confusion, I actually began to enjoy it. I know this is bizarre and totally uncharacteristic of me, but at the same time it is fascinating the skills these men have. So, out of my curiosity I went to DIREC4u.com to get the schedule and see if I received the channel. I watched a few matches alone and was starting to get a gasp on the rules and challenges of this sport. I have been excited about a new sport to watch and excited about my enthusiasm towards it. After getting a relatively good grasp on the sport, I called my friend over to watch the big match. He was thrilled to come and share in my excitement. To be honest, I was getting more into this than football. Was it possible? Had I found a sport I loved more than football? It is certainly starting to look that way!

I’ve been looking into getting a new TV for the past few weeks. My current unit is a 42 inch Samsung which I purchased before HD was very prevalent. It is still HD, but it is only 720p which is not as good as the now standard 1020p or 1020i formats. I really do not miss the image quality reduction that my 720p offers when watching my HD channels. In fact, I can only tolerate watching HD channels now that I’m used to the image. When a non-hd channel comes on, I find it very hard to watch.
So, I’m wondering what your thoughts are out there. Do you have AMC-HD or are you still watching the lower resolution version? Does it make a big difference to you either way? What size/brand TV is everyone using and does anyone have a recommendation on what my next TV should be – considering I definitely want to upgrade to at least 1020!
My current Samsung, that I mentioned above is of the DLP variety, which do not seem to be as common anymore. It looks like all the good new TVs they are pedaling are either LCD, LED TV or Plasma. What are your thoughts?

I used to be a great fan of American Movie Classics channel.
But NO LONGER.
You have destroyed these great movie classics with your idiotic “Story Notes”.
It distracts from these great movies. Disrupts the whole movie.
I will no longer watch your channel until this crape stops.
Nice going, you ruined a very good thing.
Story Notes suck!

I appreciate the guest post, Ignacio Phillips
When it comes to television reality shows, many will agree that none can top American Idol. This show has become a legend in American living rooms for lots of reasons. We can tune into the show on satellite TV, that I got after seeing this http://www.direc4u.com, almost anywhere from the airport to the car dealership, because it seems that every TV is tuned into the show when it airs. We get to participate interactively by voting for our favorites when we get down to the top two dozen contestants. Not only that, but the show has become the “it” place to showcase the extreme talent that sometimes otherwise goes unnoticed. The real life stories of some contestants can jerk a tear from a glass eye!
Then, there’s the other side of the coin, which is almost as good. That’s the folks who think they’re talented or know they’re not and just want their few minutes of fame. These people are sometimes amazing in their sheer lack of talent and the fact that they are either brave enough or stupid enough to want the world to see it.
The judges of the show, no matter who they are, add even more fascination to the show as we sometimes get to see some of the interesting facets of their true personalities, not to mention witnessing their star power in a whole new way. No matter why you tune into the show, it is apparent why American Idol is a hit all over the globe.
