Erkan’s movie and TV shows report

After finishing up all I could find at How I met your mother, The Big Bang Theory became my new favorite TV show. I am looking forward to starting to watch the new season.
A provocative TV serials I have discovered is Breaking Bad. I will start to watch the 2nd season soon.
I continue to watch Dexter (still in the 1st season), I started to watch Star Trek Original Series and after a bit search, I could find Blakes 7 and I watch it interchangeably with Star Trek. The latter was my childhood favorite but after watching Star Trek series, I am a bit disappointed. Maybe one should just leave it like that. Still I will watch again- after 20 something years, the Blakes 7.

and a few notable movies I watched recently:
The Man Who Planted Trees (1988)
Looking for Eric (2009)
Welt am Draht (1973) (TV)
Zombieland (2009)
Inception (2010)
Waltz with Bashir (2008)
Milk (2008/I)

The Expendables

The Expendables has a lot of fighting, killing, running around and explosions. Unfortunately, it has much less plot, character development, and dialogue that makes sense. At 103 minutes, it feels very extended.
