With great payroll, comes great disappointment.


Tina Majorino is on that TNT Sean Bean show, but they do shorter cable seasons, so no great impediment there.

Yeah, watching Liv be confident and take-charge was actually super fun, and it was interesting to see the real, ready to solo drink, socially isolated Liv come out at the end of the episode.

Also there's no way Babineaux hasn't noticed the personality weirdness, the show's highlighted his WTF expressions a couple of times now.

Liv is so incredible every week with all the different personalities. This one was definitely up there, along with the cranky old fella brains. Also, liv's roommate is ridiculously attractive.

I had hoped that they would drop the personality of the week since it was the only thing i didn't really like about the show, but they seem to be having a lot of fun with it so far this season, so i don't mind it as much.

I've seen this comment a few times and I don't really understand it, it's the show's central gimmick and the only rationale for an ME partnering with a cop. It's like wishing that The Flash would quit it with all the speedster bullshit

Killing the dude with the dog was the worst too. Like, poor Major. Can't he get a scum bag zombie to take out? No. He gets the family man with the loving kids, and the dude that just wants to walk his adorable dog.
Murdering people is one hell of a rubicon to cross too. I've not watched Rob Thomas' other shows, but I worry that eventually we'll be expected to just shrug that off and ignore the fact Major was abducting and killing people who begged for mercy.

My theory is that he's somehow Harriet Tubmanning them to safety, we've never actually seen one of those body bags moving before he shoots it and he does have two buddies who work at a morgue

I will admit that this theory is somewhat undercut by his drug addiction, obvious guilty conscience and new dog

The personality changes are the most important part of the show basically. How do you not enjoy her doing work with each new personality that inhabits her? It's fantastic TV. It's like the victim passively gets the chance to solve their own murder through Liv's eyes and they provide amazing insight and moments. I wish this show were on more than once a week.

My favorite Babineaux reaction was to Liv attempting to tap the keg in the second episode while they were interviewing all the frat bros for the first time.

For most of the first season i found the personalities a cringe worthy gimmick, and i enjoyed the show despite my dislike for them. They seem to have ramped up the humour this season, and i don't mind them so far, but it still feels like a gimmick designed to get attention.

Yeah, I really don't think he's actually murdering them. He keeps dumping them off the same bridge so it would only be a matter of time before, y'know, someone discovers them floating downstream.
My guess is that he's not killing them, but he is tying them to something that weighs them down to keep them at the bottom of the river so nobody is the wise. It's not like they're gonna drown.

I'm not sure if shooting them twice and binding them at the bottom of a river makes him a significantly better person than killing them.

Look obviously the river is 500m deep and the zombies are in self sealing bags so there is no risk of leaking blood out and infecting other people after Major shoots them in the head.

There are also weights in the bag so it won't float to the surface.

I've never had DVR or known anyone personally who has, the closest thing is my dad still records shows with a timer to VHS. But the CW comic trio is really the only American Television that I watch, well that and Gravity Falls.

It's pretty much been standard for any cable service for the past 5-10 years in the US. The cable box they give you has that functionality built in. VHS is a technology the newer generation may barely even recognize, and you wouldn't even be able to buy it in mainstream stores, comparable to a telegraph.

STOMPIN' ON INTO THE POWER LINES

College Slice

I don't have a DVR! I know perfectly well what they're good for though.

In a strange series of bundle deals I pay for non-HD cable through Comcast in order to pay less total then I would for internet alone. Comcast is very confused by my lack of desire for HD cable. But the two set top boxes I have are very old yet functional converter boxes with no capability other then shrinking widescreen to letter boxed 4:3 to display on my widescreen TV
