T.V. Blurbs.

My Walking Dead graphic novel sales have slowed to shambling crawl. What usually happens with adaptations into movies is that they stop selling when the movie releases, but I was hoping these would keep selling because it is a continuing series.

The same channel canceled Rubicon. Which I enjoyed, but which I could tell was doomed. Way too many 'staring off into space' moments.

To continue the T.V. theme. I have stopped watching The Event and Hawaii Five-O.

The Good Wife is pretty amazingly good. They are going to have to do something about new prosecutor Cary, or he's going to turn into a Berger. (You know, Perry Mason's hapless foe?)

Still watching House, which is as ridiculous as ever; they seem to be shunting the old crew aside, almost, like the writers are bored with them.

C.S.I. Vegas has the occasional clunker episode, which they never used to have, but then seems to rebound for a few episodes.

Dexter is still great.

Sidewalk Empire is curiously uninvolving, but I like the era and theme and some of the actors are great.

The Mentalist is probably the most mainstream thing I watch; kind of old fashioned Columbo plotting, but Simon Baker is just charming enough, and just under being annoying enough, to keep watching.

Linda is hooked on Nikita, which I'd probably stop watching if it wasn't for her. I mean, come on! They communicate by computer! Really!!!! Some high security.

I think that's about it, for regular programming.

Wow, Patty put the shit together, A $177M committed investment to a bank with a market cap of $21M.

This is concerning the 'Walking Dead': I guess all the pedestrian 'comic' consumers figured out that you'll never know what is going to happen on the AMC show through the comics. Hopefully at the end of the TV series, sales will pickup do to a craving for comics with things craving brains; only three episodes left.

Duncan,

Only you could write about dreams and TV shows and then get reader comments regarding a bank, etc.

The people are making it clear what they want! ; )

Note that CACB secured "$177 MILLION" today, as noted on the FRONT PAGE of the Bully.

Stock market's assessment? +$7 mill in mkt value today.

If this money were invested in a brand spanking new entity, you have to think the immediate market value would be closer to the dollar value invested funds.

This is CLASSIC throwing good money after bad.

As long as I get to do what I want...

Well, the way the stock price shot up today, who knows what's going on?

Plus 57.8%.

Wow - sounds like they would have done better if they'd walked into Duncan's store and bought $177 million worth of comic books.

"...bought $177 million worth of comic books."

That would wipe out half my inventory!
