    Just when you thought Evangeline Lilly couldn’t get any hotter, they put Elf ears on her and made her a match for Legolas…

    Were you a “Lost” fan too, Barry?

  • Barry Murray

    I was indeed, my friend. It was a tv milestone i think, running for as long as it did. It’s right up there in my estimation, next to Breaking Bad, Game Of Thrones, Heroes, Daybreak(Short lived, though it was), and Stargate universe. Shows i can put on and watch any time.

  • I really loved Heroes right up until the ending of season 2. I liked season 3 midway through, but really didn’t like the emphasis on Sylar. Think that was the show most impacted by the writer’s strike and they never fully recovered.

    I seriously need to finally watch Breaking Bad though.

    Of course. I find myself more attracted to good ideas, even if not fully realised.
    On a different subject, have you seen “Predestination” yet, with Ethan Hawke?
