Im trying to like this show. But it seems like every episode Im losing more interest. And now Irisa and the town deputy knocking boots just seems...weird.

Ya, I don't love Defiance but it's in the same category as Revolution and some others. Mindless entertainment. I don't really care too much about plot unless it gets just way too out there, and so far it's fine.

And Entourage had some good moments, but really it was just kinda bad.

Turtle didn't have funny moments. Drama and Ari did when they ripped on him.

Entourage for the first 2.5/3 seasons was very good. After that just pure garbage.

I like it too but I don't like the main actress even though she's attractive, she's realy underwhelming. The story is kinda entertaining, I'm interested in the developement of Alec and how liber8 will plot their revolution but Kiera always seems to ruin it for me.

It happened way too early. They needed to string along the tension for a bit, maybe have the deputy do something stupid for her/to try and impress her but put everyone in jeopardy and she gets pissed at him.

This. I mean duh... Not that I'm a fan of the deputy but if you are going to do it then that's the way to go.

I don't mind her in Continuum. She isn't great but she is hot and I think does a good enough job. The concept is really cool, executed well and Alec is a great character.

That's why I watched it. Ari and Johnny Drama were awesome at first but Vincent and Eric were awful and Turtle wasn't much better. I can't believe they squeezed more than 3 seasons out of the show.

Ari and Johnnie Drama were definitely the only reasons to watch Entourage. I thought Turtle was occasionally funny before he got skinny and cool enough to date Jamie Lynn Sigler. Then he was just as boring as Vince and E.

Meh, it's okay at best. As a poli sci major, I should love it. But I really have no great desire to finish it. It is over-the-top serious, the characters are all unlikeable, and the entire show outside of Russo, no characters show any emotions.

I was really into it for about 5-6 episodes and then I finished it just to finish it. I agree with your assessment overall. Not a single likable character makes it tough to get into the show.

Yeah, I just didn't get into House of Cards.

I don't know why, but I've always disliked watching SUPER serious shows. Aka, Dexter (for the most part), The Wire, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, etc.

I have not watched all of them, but I just have a hard time getting into serious shows like that. Not that they are bad by any means. They are all great shows (except maybe half of Dexter's seasons).

I actually liked it more as it went on. It started without much direction but by the last 5 episodes the story was awesome.

It's definitely dark, and the characters may not be like able, but I think they're real, interesting, and very well done.

It's definitely dark, and the characters may not be like able, but I think they're real, interesting, and very well done.
I actually sort of disagree with it being "real." I know politics can be scummy and such but I feel that because almost every character is scummy it makes it sort of unrealistic. It just seems like that specifically went out of their way to make it like that.

Russo was not scummy. The chick that was brought in to the charity was not scummy. The editor of the paper was not scummy. Not almost every character is scummy, just a few of the main characters and of course many of the politicians

I'll give you the editor of the paper (unless you mean the guy that called Mara a ****) but Russo's boozing and what he did to his kids was certainly scummy and the charity chick got scummy at the end for sure as well.

What Russo did was not scummy though, he was just an addict. He did turn his life around but the same people that helped him chewed him up and spit him out when they were done with him. The charity chick did what she thought she had to for the greater good. I would not say what she did was scummy, she just stooped to the level of those around her. A big motif of the show is people doing bad things for in their mind the greater good.
