Re: 2012 MTF Popularity Contest News Thread

I'm loving the rematch with selyoink

I won the ACC match last year, so logically I'm in trouble this time

I hadn't either but I always do some homework on my opponents He mostly plays MTF's games and is decently ranked in all of them. Also his avatar should score him some votes. BigJohn would have been an easier opponent imo, I could always count on his haters voting for me

Season 2 is on hiatus right now; the rest of it is starting in January. And like orange hat said, there aren't a lot of episodes per season so you'll catch up in no time.

What shows do you watch?

Fuck yes. The "cliffhanger" - wtf was that. As if anyone gives a shit. I find Rachel really irritating too. I generally like love relationships on TV (can't help it; I'm a girl ) but this show would be better without one, IMO. The only love relationship that counts is Harvey and Mike anyway.

FNL season 1 I don't think it's everyone's cup of tea though. I tried to watch 1 episode like 2 years back but couldn't get into it because I didn't understand american culture then + the southern accents didn't help either. But season 1 is so . At the start of a season 2 there's a plot line that's making me but hopefully they resolve it well.
Yes, I was quite put off by the football aspect of the show; it's a bit too American for me, if that even makes any sense. I might give it a try if I find myself really bored.

Do you watch Person of Interest, by the way? I honestly think it's probably the best show right now. It's one of those shows that are organic and authentic, and it doesn't let itself get dragged down by boring romances. The acting is top notch as well and the writing is fantastic. It's produced/created by Jonathan Nolan and it definitely has the Nolan stamp of quality on it.

Some Marvey is always good I loved the part when Mike started insulting Harvey's records and Harvey just threw him to Louis

Actually football isn't that big of a deal. It's more of a vehicle for the show, if you know what I mean. Honestly I still don't know that much about football apart from the really basic stuff but it doesn't really impede you from enjoying the show. It was more I think the crazy small town culture that confused me at first.

I've heard a lot of stuff about POI, I watched the pilot and it just seemed like another typical CBS procedural to me, a la the mentalist, ncis, etc. etc. though I've been told that it isn't. Idk if I'll get back to it though, it's too similar to homeland for me at the moment + I never really cared for Michael Emerson because I never watched lost

Right now I can't wait for The Americans to start on FX. Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys
