    and man, it really is a horrifically bad show.

    I like Terrence Howard and the girl that plays cookie, but the acting on this show is so bad, and that cow Gabby Sidibe is so fucking distracting, the show is literally un-watchable.

    I toughed it through 3 eps and punched out, told my wife I couldn't take it anymore.

    She got mad and continued to watch it and I went in the bedroom and read my Jack Reacher novel. I will not be watching that show again.

    I don't get it, either. The clips I've seen of the show look like a bad soap opera.

    sorry, the acting is really bad all the way around and the writing is super soap opera.

    It's like there's an inside joke, where every character looks at the camera and says "I'ma get what's minez"

    Stop trying to destroy the illusion that married men have a choice to do anything.

    My ex wife was addicted to Law and Order . It got to the point the show was on all the time so I would bail and do something else . I swear it was the beginning of my divorce . I can't hear that orchestra hit sound even now with out wanting to punch a wall .

    I get along with my wife fine. I watch my shows and play xbox in the living room and she watches her horseshit in the bedroom.
    We have 3 things we watch in common: House of Cards, VICE and Random HBO documentaries.

    I actually think it's healthy for a relationship to have separate interests. If I feign interest in something I hate, it builds resentment and vice versa.

    My x wife would turn on the TV as soon as she walked in the house . That's when I would hit the road to my computer and message boards and chat rooms .

    Yeah. maybe you are right. Or it could be that she likes shitty tv.

    Anyway, if she wants to jet, it's her prerogative, I've been divorced before and thankfully, no kids this time.

    yeah, when the TV becomes a focal point. It's a problem.

    When I got home last night the Bachelor was on tv and nobody was in the living room so I went to change the channel.
    The message came up for a recording conflict with the DVR.
    Keeping up with the Kardashians was recording on the other channel. :bigcry:

    Luckily I had a Deadliest Catch on the DVR that I could watch. The Bachelor looked super gay. I don't know how any man could watch it.

    I thought for sure that after the title of this thread, your post would simply read: "...and I filed for divorce." My heart goes out to you, man. The only appropriate finale to a show like Empire is cum bubble burps.

    Distracting? I didn't know who she is, so I googled her. Distracting is not the right word for her. I think I would vomit if I watched her for more than 3 seconds. And if I was in the situation you were in, I'd aim for the wife as I did.
