I love the dramatic elements and the story about how such an event changes people more than the scary parts. It really makes you think about what you would do if you were in that scenario. I think that is why it draws such a large audience.

Someone who isn't used to scary stuff should probably pass their way but I've been watching horror movies since my childhood. Don't judge me!

I dislike horror stuff for some odd reason, movies or not.. I guess it's because of how easily scared I can be of stuff, but I guess it would just take time for me to get used to if I exposed myself to horror more often.

I like horror movies that aren't too overdone or too stupid to the point where they don't make any sense(most horror movies today), but I am not a fan of paranormal horror. I don't know why, but it never really interested me :\

THE WALKING DEAD.

probably the BEST SHOW OUT THERE and even though i'm not into horror stuff but THIS SHOW CHANGED EVERYTHING. I love zombies. I love zombie apocalypseseses. I finished the first two episodes of Season 3 rn, and heading to episode 3 tonight. THIS SHOW IS WORTH WATCHING YOU GUYS. Jelli and Dipu give it a two thumbs up.

The problem with me and TV series these days is that I don't have satellite service in my room, and my parents are always hogging the TV in the living room at night (them and their stupid NCIS reruns on USA ), I can pretty much only have the TV with what I want to watch whenever they aren't home.. and we pay so ****ing much for TV service that there's only one TV in the whole house with TV service.

Thank gosh though that the one channel I do often watch, Cartoon Network, is one of those networks that streams their live channel online if you provide your TV login credentials, which I do have from my parents.

Yay!! I am so glad you got into this show! Season 4 is going to really be amazing and we are going to have to discuss it =D

You are also really going to enjoy season 3. Much more dramatic than the previous 2.

There's just so much I could watch on TV but I choose not to.. and it sucks that a lot of shows people talk about these days (aside from shows like Big Bang Theory) are cable-only shows and like I said, I would probably be much more into TV if I had TV service back in my room and aside from that, my parents won't pay for Netflix >_<

Netflix is really worth the 9 or 10 dollars(idr) a month. There are many movies on there that people probably haven't heard of, but turn out to be really decent films.

Yep, I would really love to have a Netflix subscription myself! Maybe with that I could actually watch stuff on my TV instead of having to use my computer! (and yes, with instant streaming because I own a Roku box)

Hiya! Don't mind if I pop on in here, do you?

Netflix really kind of sucks to me.. there aren't a lot of good movies in it and some of the ones I wanted to watch disappeared. There are just a lot of cheesy, low-rated movies and a small portion of good movies and shows. However, it's easily worth the 8 bucks because I got to watch all of Breaking Bad on it :D

There are quite a bit of cheesy low-rated movies, but that is really the only downside. They are adding more TV series though, or at least it appears to be that way and that is a plus~!

I would mainly use Netflix for TV shows & such rather than movies.. but for me, to max out content without the need of cable TV service, I think it'd be best if I subscribed to both Netflix and Hulu Plus, but that's just me.

I was going to sign up for HuluPlus but didn't at the last minute. Is it better than NetFlix?

I would probably try free trials of both Netflix and Hulu Plus before I wind up subscribing to either of them just to see how much I would actually use them and to see how good the content they both offer is.

At least on regular Hulu you can still watch TV regular for free, just with advertisements.

My little brother (he's 18 and has job before anyone judges) has a Netflix and really likes it cause it's how he's discovered a ton of good shows from it. He does let us it mainly cause he's out at college right now and has no control of who uses it but also cause he's generous. Haha.

I have my own profile on his account but haven't used it since I created it but it's so things I watch don't show up on his history/recommendations.

The only things I wind up watching these days is me catching up on my Cartoon Network shows, but they offer the four most newest episodes on their website of their shows (in full length) to those who have TV subscriptions and provide their TV provider's login credentials. I have taken advantage of this feature for the times I have missed a new episode, but that's usually rare for me to watch online because usually I wind up catching it later on (within a day or two) in reruns and or just watch it live online.

Now if all cable networks did that with their shows, I'd be more than satisfied and wouldn't be upset at my parents hogging the TV so much

My mom is really the only one who still goes and watches things on cable. Normally a little before she goes to bed most nights. If it wasn't for that the cable would rarely be used except for the times when there is nothing else on netflix for my sister and i to watch and we want to watch something or just have some background noise.

That said, most of the things that we do watch are on netflix. Normally we would watch everything we want to watch, and then wait a bit until more stuff comes on. Or rather, by the time we're finished with what we have been watching there is new stuff for us to watch. I haven't really been unhappy with netflix since we got it except for when they took off some shows (like Avatar. Already watched it by then but still :( )

I watch most of my TV on netflix because really...there isn't anything good on TV and to be honest the ONLY shows I watch on TV are NASCAR, ESPN, and Full House. :(

Also, Digimon is on Netflix if you didn't know. I'm on episode 20 and it contains both Adventure 1 & 2 :D

I only turn on the TV for background noise these days. I'm currently watching South Park episodes on Trey and Parker's website and that's enough for me right now.

I don't have netflix in my country, but Astro, which I believe is something like netflix and Foxtel. I usually watch National Geographic, Animal Planet and the whole lot. It's really interesting! Love getting to learn more about things. Of course, Cartoon Network (not like there's anything else to watch), sometimes AXN, StarWorld, etc.

I wish I had time to watch TV. Problem is if I start a TV series I have to finish it one sitting.
My all time favourite reality TV show is Formal Wars. I think it might only be in Australia but basically it's just a show where the parents decide everything for their daughters formal. Just things like what they wear, who their date is, how they get there. The drama is incredible! It's so funny watching these girls have a fit because her mum doesn't know the shoes don't match the dress. It's the best thing ever at 11 o'clock at night.

Like most, my TV is on for noise as well, but often I do wind up watching whatever is on.. for some odd reason though I can never seem to "function" without noise flowing through my head so whenever I'm back in my bedroom on my computer I always have either music or the TV on.

I'm the opposite, I can't function when there is noise. I have my TV on most of the time. Half the time is on cartoons for Diana, and the other half is because there's something I want to watch on. I watch way too much TV.

I find myself watching too much TV Cartoon Network, so don't feel alone but I will say though that if it's bad to where I cannot stand lack of noise, then school is not the place for me to be, especially in a class when the teacher isn't lecturing but wants things silent xD
