    I already watch Walking Dead on fast forward with subtitles, although I do tend to play it at normal speed when there's talking. There's so little dialogue I can still do an episode in under 25 minutes...

    Thank you for clarifying. I apologize for misunderstanding your intent, and I hope there are no hard feelings.

    There seems to be a segment of fandom that looks down on those who aren't on their perceived intellectual level, and it is unfortunately represented here to some degree. I hadn't seen anything from you that suggested that you were a part of that group, but the statement bothered me. I should have just let it go.

    Again, my apologies.

    No problem! Sorry for the confusion--but glad we got that cleared up!

    I love rewatching stuff I like.

    I must have seen my favorite TNG episodes more than 50 times each, and I still don't get bored of watching them.

    I've watched Stargate Atlantis at least 4 times in a row before, and I'm thinking of a fifth round once I finish DS9.

    I saw Lost twice, but I think that's pretty much all I can get out of it.

    Firefly was written too much for geeks, and that's why they love it (I don't hate it, but I thought the movie had a much better tone and pacing, I wish the show would have been the same)


    Almost Human sounds like something I'd enjoy watching, I'm going to check it out.

    Aw, just admit it -- you're a "fast zombie" fan. :p
