My new favorite show is definitely Swamp People on the History Channel. The History Channel needed a good show to compete with Deadliest Catch on Discovery. I know they had Ice Road Truckers, but I never really got it to be honest. I think it was partially due to not…Read More
Southpark started off a little slow this year. I wasn’t really into the first two episodes of this season, but the last two weeks have been pretty darn good.
