Petition to tell everyone to watch the worlds least likely but MOST AMAZING a chemistry between Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper on CNN right now.

She just dyed his hair red white and blue. And told him if he hated it he hates America.

My New Year's resolution is to actually keep up with this thread. It got to 10,000+ unread posts before Deadpool killed it for 2014.

And I also resolve to watch all the stuff I keep stored on my DVR. I hear The Manhattan Project is actually pretty good, its time to find out for myself!

I keep up for the most part, but if I ever see 100+ unread posts I just skip to the last page. From what I can tell, the only topics that make TVIV so chatty aren't ones I'm really missing out on.

I really enjoyed watching the TVIV Couch Chat in 2014, the show had another stellar year. The addition of Annakie to the writers room really freshened up the storylines and Deadpool continued to deliver the dialogue we love him for. Shame that some of the new casting choices haven't worked out (hopefully they figure out how to limit Ravane's screentime this season) but the Toxx/precision romance was on point, IRQ's arc of losing his grumpy nature was heartwarming and Irish Joe continued to be the show's MVP. Can't wait to see what they produce this year!

Completely agree with this post except for IRQ's character which needs the grumpiness to remain vital in the 2015 television landscape.

I dunno I think the real shame is that they cut the Sophia character from series regular to only guesting on the holiday specials. I guess the actress is trying to break into film but we all know how well that usually works out. When The Actuary flops she'll come crawling back.

I agree but they can't write her out, she's essential to the show's popularity. It's James Marsters all over again.

I suspect that a lot of Amazon Prime subscribers aren't even aware that the TV stuff exists. Outside of critics, these shows get very little buzz.

I guess the show got greenlit based on the short that was on the DVD of one of the Marvel movies. It was pretty good, but who knows if they'll be able to keep it up over an entire series.
It helps that she is a more interesting character than all of the characters on AoS combined.
