Around two weeks ago, the display of the TV started becoming washed out and eventually became negative. I did some research and learned it could be the expensive inverter board. I called Samsung service and they scheduled a visit. They diagnosed the problem as the timing control (TCON) board. That was a huge relief to me. But the board still had to be ordered so they scheduled another visit. Today, the technician arrived with a new board and quickly installed it. Voila, TV fixed. And Jeanne was glad she finally got her big screen back and not settling on the 7.9â€ł iPad mini. Sometimes bigger is better.
With the [significantly-altered] Game of Thrones Season 2 done, Iâ€™ve been looking forward to the next season of The Walking Dead. The trailer came out last month but I saw it only now. Itâ€™s premiering October 14. Canâ€™t wait!
Iâ€™ve been following The Walking Dead since itâ€™s short first season last year. It was reasonably interesting but got stuck in a rut when the party checked in to the farm. Everything was going downhill with so much blabbing that some people were joking that it should be called â€śThe Talking Deadâ€ť. Fortunately, the last two episodes ramped it up pretty quick with quite a few unexpected events (offing of some major characters), a whole lot of action (Farmville goes up in flames), and a whole lot of changes actual (Rick, finally) and promised (Michonne, The Prison). So now Iâ€™m back to looking forward to season 3. Itâ€™s gonna be a long wait till fall. Good thing Game of Thrones is due to start soon.
Just watched the trailer of season 2 of Game of Thrones which covers the events on the book A Clash of Kings.
Looking to be another epic (I canâ€™t believe I just used that word) season!
UPDATE March 7, 2012: Second trailer is out!
