  5. EJ386 says:

    Shameless! And also this time with good hopes that Ian will return… I know there probably is somewhere I can look it up, but hoping he will be there is so much better than knowing he will not be.

    • Beth says:

      Yes! Having him back may help the glaring void of jimmy/Steve not being there! I do like where this Fiona storyline is going.

  6. TV Gord says:

    It was 50 years ago today! :-)

  7. Matt C. says:

    The Walking Dead! I can’t believe it’s been 2 months since the midseason finale. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

  11. ibjbyron says:

    Walking and talking (and yes, hoping Manson NEVER returns… ;-) Plus dvr’ing the Beatles.

  12. Eric says:

    The Beatles special

    DVR: The Walking Dead/The Talking Dead

  13. jonathon says:

    The Walking Dead and The Talking Dead, gonna dvr that Game of Thrones special and watch it later though. If your not watching Walking Dead thinking its just about Zombies then you have been missing out.
