    FOX has a new show coming out about a New Jersey mob family that looks good.


    "The Sparanos"

    would be nice if some writers got some OG ideas of their own I really like true detective that shit was good. i just got 2 of the 3 books from which this new wayward pines show is based from so im gunna give them a shot but that 2 minute trailer has about 75 TP references in it alone lolz

    i think the football coach was stuck in my head.

    either way, i agree with HOLIC. animated movies and remakes of original screenplays. they're talking about remaking National Lampoon Vacation movies. WITH CHEVY CHASE!

    If you want to be really pissed off about what rip off Wayward Pines is, check out a New Zealand show called "This is Not my Life" (2010)...

    Same thing...

    takes place in the future
    in place that no one can get in or out of
    has a big wall around is that say "you will be killed"
    each person's life is monitored in their homes
    each person has a "tracker" that shows their location

    sound familiar?

    I'm glad I don't have cable TV between NFL seasons. 68 days to go until the Hall of Fame game, btw.

    Who's watching this? I am caught up and I have a question about what appears to be a significant plot flaw

    It seems like Ethan is being fucked with about the date and the apocalypse. I mean how could Ethan be in WP, his wife and son in Seattle and Boise, then they get taken into WP with the time travel/suspended animation thing by the sheriff in present day?
