Just wondering what everyone's up to these days?
We're re-watching Breaking Bad. Loved it the first time, about 2 years ago, love it again. I wish they'd make more TV like that. We will watch The Sopranos next, as we haven't yet. I wonder if Jeff would ever consider making a series like that? We watched Ozark Season 1, which was good, but not as good as BB, though. I'm reading Game Of Thrones. I don't want to watch the show bc too many wolves get killed and that would bother me. (violence & sex is fine, but I can't stand animals getting hurt/killed, even if it's only make-believe) I like GOT but not as much as Pillars Of The Earth, which I loved. GOT there are so many frigging characters to keep straight!

I'm actually watching The Walking Dead. I'd never given it much thought but was constantly being told it was good. So I've been festing on that and now up to series 5. I suppose you could say I'm into it lol No killing of animals but plenty of flesh ripping and moaning. I didn't know Andrew Lincoln was in it either, doing what seems to be a very decent Southern accent. I liked him from Love Actually and a few British TV shows he did. I should be up-to-date by the start of series 8 next month. Is it odd that I like Norman Reedus? Such a scruff but something very likeable about him. I don't know him from anything else.
I like GOT but got into that because of Sean Bean, I'm a big fan of his also. SPOILER I wish his characters would occasionally survive. He rarely makes it to the end and he didn't even make it to the end of the first series lol END OF SPOILER. There are a few TV series that I watch on a fairly regular basis. A British period drama called Upstairs Downstairs from the 70's is one I watch maybe once a year. It's just so good. I love British dramas, especially the old ones. I also have Dexter in full and have watched that from start to finish once or twice too. It's a weird one that you put me on to. __________________ Haggiebaby I love everybody.

We tried Walking Dead and gave up. I know it's a big deal, Lisa and her boyfriend love it, but I just could not get into it.
We watched Orange is the New Black for a few seasons until we got bored. Watched and finished Oz - excellent but grim. Tried others, Stranger Things, The Path, House of Cards - meh. Oh, watched Homeland for a while but it's too much like real life with all the terrorism. My favourite is still Breaking Bad so far.

If you were to write a show what would it be about? Since this is Jeff's message board if you had the chance to cast him in a show or movie what type of character would he be? Just saw a Western themed commercial with Jeff driving a covered wagon.

I am reading
- Here I Am by Jonathan Safran Foer - knitting instructions - Guides to digital photography since I gave up my photography evening classes before they even started because the school building in which the classes take place looks way too depressing. I am not reading - Game of thrones stuff I am watching - movies on TV - series: none - shows: none - sports: basketball, tennis (sometimes) I gave up my subscription to Netflix and a local movie channel I will watch "De Slimste Mens ter Wereld" again. It is a quiz hosted by Erik Van Looy. He searches for the smartest human on Earth. IAnd Oh My God IT IS FUNNY! I am not watching - Game of Thrones __________________ “Dogs are our link to paradise.
