    I heard it wasn't going to be until around fall. Not sure though. Waiting to get it on video. My wife watched it, but the time just wasn't convenient for me.

    I think that someone said the new season would start on Halloween2011. It's going to be a long summer...

    Yep, October 2011. The only thing keeping me sane is Justified for now, Eureka if it ever comes back, the hope of more Breaking Bad. It'll be a long summer indeed.

    i think The Walking Dead is the closest thing anyone's come up with to replace Lost. probably because they weren't trying to be Lost. i love it!!!

    we DVRd it, & we still can't bring ourselves to delete any of the episodes. it's that good.

    I think they're trying to replace Lost with everything they come up with... FWIW, I just couldn't get into Lost. I tried but the constant flash backs to the previous episode left me feeling like they only came up with 15 minutes of new footage for each 3 hour long episode... There were plenty of other shows on TV and movies on DVD that I chose to spend my off hours on. SO! I really hope they don't go that route with TWD, I'd hate to have to give up on it.

    i don't think they will. the thing i think feels the same as Lost is that A. it's a bunch of people who normally wouldn't associate with one another who are thrown together by a bizarre circumstance. & 2. you actually give a crap about em. all the shows that are trying to be Lost right now are missing the mark, cuz they don't take the time to develop the characters enough to make you care about them. TWD is nothing like Lost, story wise. it just feels like Lost to me, cuz i really care about the characters, & i need to know what happens to them. :)

    i loved Lost, but the last episode kinda blew it for me. my husband had the same gripe you have though, so i totally get your point.

    I loved LOST from the beginning. The flashbacks, and how the writers interconnected the people was mind blowing at times, and forced me to institute a "NO talking during LOST" rule in our house. I was a bit let down with the ending. I wish they had answered some of the questions as the story moved along instead of throwing a big brain twister at the end.

    Biggest difference is that TWD is based off a graphic novel (or comic book) that won awards for it's story lines along with it's graphics so there's a clear plan on how the show 'can' progress. They're changing writers for the second season so there's a chance the show can get better OR worse depending on their talent. Scarier than seeing the living dead walking down your street if you ask me. I don't like it when a show changes a winning formula.

    that's exactly how i felt about Lost too, technovapir. like, exactly.

    They've set the first air dates for October 21st on German TV so it's expected to be another Halloween opener here.

    And RE: Writers... when you actually go back, most of the episodes done by the original writing team were rejected and didn't air. So I think we'll be OK w/ the revised Graphic Novel continuity. :D

    I guess we'll just have to wait and hope for the best. BTW, nice to see another Dr. Who fan. I felt a little misled with 'The Doctor's Wife' not being who I thought it would be... but, I'm actually pleasantly surprised at how well the new Dr. is doing after the almost Tom Baker like performance/following of David Tennant! I think another season or two and he would have replaced Tom as the most loved Dr. of all time.

    I still have to watch the rest of season 1 of the walking dead. My walking dead connection hasn't given up the last episodes.

    also waiting to be able to see season 6 of Dr. who...was all set to watch it on BBC streaming and couldn't :cry:

    Well, since somebody on the thread hasn't seen Season 6 of Doctor Who I won't spoil it...

    However, the story-line started in The Doctor's Wife is not nearly as closed as you may think. Season 7's 2012/2013 run will address that more specifically. I promise. ;-) -Magnus

    No, this would be just ruin and ruin. Besides, there is a Doctor Who thread in the Lounge where I've already spilled everything I can and almost everything I know. ;-) -Magnus
