Yeah I'm pretty young. Although I think I live like an older person would than someone my age. Most people think I'm pretty boring because of that. One of my birthday presents from my father was a fishing trip with to the Snohomish Rivers when the season is right. We also might go tuna fishing later.

@shadowchronicle: Happy day of birth sir.

I've been re watching True Detective. God damn it's such a good series, better than pretty much everything, movies included. The fucking intensity of the acting+photography and the fact that it's on HBO (no limits as to what kind of violence/sex/drugs they can show).... God damn.

Yeah there's a lot I haven't caught out here in Washington because I stopped fishing around the time I moved to Washington from Oklahoma.

Plus it isn't terrible to fish here in this river because there's no alligator gars.

Moving my 7970 into a bitfenix phenom. A bit concerned about having such a small space and such a loud/hot card.

Edit: Nevermind, did a little hunting through Google and it turns out people are reporting lower temps in SFF builds due to the card standing up vertically.

I got my healing chest to finally drop lol and got it, I've seen 2 pieces drop (inc my chest piece) in the last 8 runs I've done. Every other drop has been DRG and MNK, with maybe a MRD/PLD or BRD dropping off of at least 1 boss.

I have to agree with common since The Wire is just perfect, plus there's numerous other shows that are better than BB (GoT, Firefly, Archer and Arrow).

Once again, thanks for the b-day wishes yesterday guys.

A couple days ago, I beat LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean's main game, but I'm doing some Free Play and let me say Blackbeard's sword is overpowered, not something I expect out of a LEGO game.

@Ballroompirate: Sorry, I'm going to have to severely disagree here. While I appreciate Arrow and Firefly for their entire geekiness factor, they're not even in the same league as Breaking Bad, or indeed, Game of Thrones or The Wire. As for those two, a season and a half into The Wire, and it really is excellent- so far not better than Breaking Bad, but we'll see.

The only season of Game of Thrones that can begin to compare with Breaking Bad at its weakest is Season 4.

@lostrib: Haha, yep. What season are you on? If it's the first two and a half or so seasons, and you already think it's intense... man, you don't know what comes next :p

@PhazonBlazer: Does your ninniness know no bounds?

@jg4xchamp:@commonfate: I'm only like, a season and a half into The Wire, and it's good, it's very, very good. It's just not as good as Breaking Bad, not yet anyway.

Breaking Bad is terrific, and absolutely deserves a shit load of the praise it gets. The cinematography and writing is sharp as ****, but let's cut the jive: it's pulp narrative. It's completely ridiculous in premise, tone, and its execution. With all due respect to how well engineered and exciting it is, it has the least to say in terms of TV shows. The Wire is a reflective piece of fiction. It's about the people in Balitmore, violence in Baltimore, and a bunch of believable people in situations way out of their control.

And what that show evolves into through out all of Baltimore is far more impressive than anything Breaking Bad had.

Again BB is terrific, would easily make a top 5/top 10 for me. But I'd argue that The Wire has more nuance to its story than Breaking Bad ever attempted to do. Same thing with Friday Night Lights. Same thing with Deadwood before it got cancelled. Then there is stuff like Six Feet Under, and shows that had huge impact ala The Sopranos. There is also The Shield as far as excellent cable television is concerned. Never mind that a great case can be made that during BB's height it wasn't necessarily the best show AMC had to offer with the likes of Mad Men (I'd side with Breaking Bad, but the argument is definitely worth having).

Not to get too out of hand, but fundamentally I'd have a hard time calling it the best show of all time, and saying it won't be topped. Maybe it's sense of pace, but from a pure depth of narrative standpoint it's not in The Wire's league.

@charizard1605:

starting season 2 upwards you'll see why people praise The Wire, season 1 felt like a typical cop show but by the end of the last episode of season 1 is when it gets juicy. I love and I praise BB (hell I shaved my head and didn't shave my goatee for two months, and was Heisenberg last Halloween) but it's not a top 5 for me, it's a top 10 for sure but Dramas have been done out the ass and that's why I put shows like the Arrow so high cause face it we can't name more than 3 amazing super hero shows ever compared the dozen of amazing dramas that have been released. With Firefly it's one of the most critically acclaimed sci fi shows ever...to be canned and that's why it should be on peoples radar.

A lot of shows did drama better than BB like The Shield, The Sopranos, BSG (first 3 season), GoT (hell it's production value alone is amazing) and The Wire. Then if you want to name some other amazing shows that aren't full dramas or dramas at all; Sherlock, Luther, Suits, Arrested Development, 24, Doctor Who (let's just say all of it), The Office and Star Trek TNG.

If I had to list my top 10 shows it would probably be something like

  1. Doctor Who
  2. Firefly
  3. The Wire
  4. GoT
  5. Stargate SG-1
  6. Archer
  7. The Office
  8. BB
  9. Arrow
  10. Suits

The retail one uses GFWL.

Pretty sure the Digital version on Steam doesnt have GFWL. Could be wrong, though.
