Right, since I've gotten loads of good tips from the film thread I thought this might be a good idea. |
FULL SEASONS ONLY this isn't for discussing single episodes etc
NO SPOILERS UNLESS SPOILER TAGGED pretty obvious
I've seen quite a few now that I'm on parental leave so I'll get going
Sons of Anarchy S01
Great series about a thinly veiled Hells Angels. A nice buddy feel to it. Good actors and nice plot. I was a bit sceptical thinking "What is there to say about a biker gang". Well, quiet a lot as it turned out.
Sons of Anarchy S02
At first I didn't like how this season started out. The buddy feel of S01 is gone and there's power struggles and dark grittyness in its place. Then they chuck in some stellar episodes and well, it becomes really good. Still dark and moody. By the end thay fuck it all up so badly that I decided to skip S03.
Light hearted new western. A US Marshal (I really need to look into the US law enforcement system as it's a mystery to me) is forced back to his home town in the boon-docks. It's a bit uneven with some really fun smart episodes and others that drag a bit. I think there's a bit too much focus on the romance bit. Looking forward to S02
Boardwalk Empire S01
Absolutely brilliant. Some of the best TV I've ever seen. It's still early days but this could become a new "The Wire". Well, it might struggle with that since there is no modern day commentary. Still, fantastic. My only gripe is the obvious studio shots...
