We Watch Stuff is back again this week and the boys talk about the big events of Game of Thrones. The show doesn’t start that way but how can Game of Thrones not be talked about in depth? Shahid and Jeremy begin the show talking about the change the television climate. HBO and more specifically The Sopranos, gets a lot of credit for this but what show really started the ore adult themed trend but gets no credit? Why does FX never in the conversation of television changing programing? Which one of our co-hosts has only seen two episodes of The Sopranos? Who has never seen a single episode of Breaking Bad? Which FX show is never brought up amongst the greatest dramas of all time? Why not anyway? Then there is the Game of Thrones conversation not to be missed. It comes from the perspective of two non-book readers because reading is for 1920’s  fancy lads. SO tune in to hear the raw emotions of the final twenty minutes of television that had everyone talking. Oh yeah, they even manage to talk about Maleficent and Snow White and The Huntsman. Yeah, two dud movies, or were they? Listen and find out to see what happened after the recording and how Jeremy may break his laptop in half. .Give this a listen to figure out what that all means.

TNA has a new television program and network

Poop. Poop is an idea.

Poop. Poop is an idea.

TNA announced today they have reached a two year contract extension with FUEL TV to air what assuredly is compelling television. FUEL who carries Impact Wrestling will now be adding TNAs new programs , well here is how they describe it.

‘Unfinished Business’ – an in-depth look at historic feuds and moments in IMPACT WRESTLING history – and ‘British Boot Camp’, a thrilling six-part entertainment series following four aspiring British wrestlers as they embark on their ambition to join TNA’s wrestling roster.

Now you may be wondering if I have gotten the channel name wrong. No it is not Spike TV carrying IMPACT wrestling,  it is definitely FUEL TV. It just so happens that we are talking about Australian television and not the good ole US of A. Yup, TNA is trumpeting a television deal with a network in a totally different country since the company makes no waves over here.

Just how long is this Unfinished Business show supposed to run? What historic feuds have they had? They certainly have had feuds but nothing really historic. So, it should have a shelf life of about four to six weeks I figure.

Leave it to the exhausted braintrust of TNA to concentrate on another program when their flagship program still draws the exact same god damn rating it has for years. There has been no growth other than the amount of television they have and even then they are ridding themselves of PPVs. So there is less money making potential with less PPVS but now we get a nostalgia show of a company that has been around ten years.

I give up.  -Jeremy

The Marine 3 has a trailer

So, here is the reason, other than his copious amount of charity work and appearances, that The Miz has turned face. After a casting change and months of wonder here is the splendor of another WWE independent contractor branching out. Yes it appears to have been filmed with a special Instagram/Viewmaster combination but that isn’t the real story here.

The real story is that Neal McDonough is the villain of the piece. What the hell is he doing in this thing? Hopefully he got paid a handsome sum for this role since he instantly classes up every project he appears in. I just don’t get it. After his stellar run on Justified he should have been handed role after role instead of accepting what is sure to be hot garbage (TM Kevin Difrango).  Come to think of it, Robert Patrick was in the original Marine. Marine 2 had Michael Rooker? How does this keep happening?

Ehh whatever, this won’t sell very well and not a lot of people will actually watch this so what does it matter. A paycheck is a paycheck.  -Jeremy

The TV Discussion: The Walking Dead Mid Season Finale

zap-the-walking-dead-season-3-photos-20120829-055

Kevin:  I was eating peanuts so I didn’t want to get my keyboard greasy
Jeremy:  Dry roast those bastards!
Kevin:  You better believe it, Plus, they wouldn’t come out of the candy machine if they were boiled
Jeremy:  That would be quite the mess
Kevin:  Yes it would.  The interior of it is filled with peanut oil as is
Jeremy:  what nasty shit are you eating?
Kevin:  Peanuts
Jeremy:  What interior? How old are these things?
Kevin:  Since when did something other than peanuts have peanut oil?
Jeremy:  French fries dumb fuck
Kevin:  We were talking about peanuts coming out of a candy machine. How hard is the math genius?
Jeremy:  Math am hard. You caught Walking Dead right?
Kevin:  Yes I did.  Had to with it being the finale
Jeremy:  Alright, so on the topic of math, Tyreses’ woman needs to go . Subtract her ass. It amazes me how annoying they made her immediately. Until Tyrese comes in with the pimp hand and tells her basically to shut the fuck up.
Kevin:  I don’t think they’re capable of making a non-annoying woman. Michonne is barely above annoying.
Jeremy:  Maggie has been ok so far. Michonne sure turned needy last night. Guess almost getting your head handed to you does that?
Kevin:  It certainly should. At least she barely scrapped her way to a win. Most hard ass women would have owned the Governor.
Jeremy:  Was it a win though? She took his eye and his daughter but didn’t kill him liek she intended.
