    Homeland (season 1)

    A promising show with an interesting premise. The final two episodes, however, ruined everything for me. From the redundant deus ex machina in the penultimate episode, to the frustrating turns of events that follow - we essentially end up back at square one for no better reason than to milk ratings and shoehorn a second season in there.
    Also, Carrie's falling in love with Brody was a bit shit. I understand that she's not entirely stable and rational. I also get that she'd become fascinated with, and attached to, the subject of her investigations - but that whole illicit romance plot line weighed down the season's middle, IMO.


    6/10

    Sopranos Season 3
    Yet again must see tv. Tony was a lot darker the last half of the season. Just how good are the "bad guys" Richie in 2 and now Ralphie in 3 and beyond I assume.
    10/10

    Season 4 starts tomorrow after the kids are in bed. This box set is playing havoc with my Gaming nights ;)
    Sopranos season 4
    Please see above :)

    Season 5 starts tonight.
    Sopranos season 5
    Excellent season, trippy dream episode and Ade got retired :(
    Season 6 starts tonight, so sad that it is coming to an end. I have loved every minute of every episode since I satrted season 1 a few weeks back.
    10/10

    @trout
    Sounds like a plan mate.

    Give it a year or so Duff and re-watch it all again. It's even better the 2nd time.

    One of the greatest tv shoes ever.

    We fancy Boardwalk Empire next, but I will wait for a box set. I think our next tele- visual feast will be Lewis/Endeavour...love me some of that, different tone of course, but still killings and such

    On another matter, you obviously decided against Gears J ?
  • Deleted user 15 August 2013 09:26:21
    @DUFFMAN5

    If you haven't watched The Wire I would suggest that too, definitely on par with The Sopranos. It's a great tv show.

    Boardwalk Empire is very good too, but if you want a show that has finished it's run it is probably best to wait.

    I've still got it, just can't muster the enthusiasm to play it. I just know it will be a disappointment. that and I am addicted to the COD mp again.

    The Killing S3 7/10

    A lot better than the second season. They should have really wrapped up the first season and made this the second one. It worked a lot better with a new story.

    The Killing (US) Season 1

    Waste of time, started out well, but got progressively worse. Watching the original now.

    Justified Season 1

    Timothy Olyphant does same character from Deadwood in modern setting. Pretty enjoyable as an updated western series.

    Homeland (season 2)

    It's arguably worse than the first season... but I enjoyed this one more. Perhaps because I was more involved with the characters? Anyway, despite my numerous criticisms of it, this whole series is much better than I expected it to be.

    Continuum season 2

    Fucking hell that was depressing wasn't it? Thank fuck season 3 has been comissioned and will be shown on syfy in 2014.

    I do think however that season three will be a bit of a confused mess now they have opened the pandoras box of alternate timelines etc. Plot holes galore!

    Agreed, the stick was partially removed from his bottom in Justified.

    such a travesty that this was canned before it even began when nowadays you have revolution receiving second series and being utterly shite
    Does it get better? I watched the feature-length first episode yesterday and I thought it was pretty average, not bad but the script was a bit embarrassing at times and the acting was meh. I enjoyed Farscape all those years ago so the B-movie effects aren't putting me off, it just didn't strike me as anything special at this stage.
    Firefly - 9/10

    Boy does it get better. What a series, what a travesty it got canceled just as it got going. After a ropey feature length first episode, it really kicks into gear. Great characters, light-hearted and fun. Really enjoyed it all. Only disappointed no ends were really tied up. I've bought Serenity on ebay for 36p, yes 36 pence, as it doesn't seem to be available to rent anywhere. Can't wait.

    Now I'm looking for my next sic-fi hit to try and fill the void. Any opinions between Andromeda, Battlestar: Galactica, Babylon 5.....?

    Not great, but a fun watch, it picked up a bit for the finale.

    Battlestar Galactica is fantastic. It's a great sci-fi show but more than that, it's a great show full stop. One of the best shows of any genre in the last 10 years.

    East Bound and Down - Series 1 through 3

    Amusing and with odd moments of surprising depth. Could have done without the last 2 minutes if the final series but still a decent ending.

    I understand they have actually commissioned another series - seems a step too far...

    Thanks, after reading a few reviews it seems the one to go for.

    The pacific

    Running through some stuff I've watched before.

    In many ways the pacific is superior to band of brothers yet is lacks pace and has far to much pointless stuff and not enough combat.

    Still a powerful programme and its the characters that bring it to life.

    8.5 / 10

    More great television. Glen Close as the new captain made a real difference to the show which I enjoyed.

    As this is the place for people who watch DVD boxed sets...

    What's the verdict on 'Community'?

    I've not seen it, but it sounds like my sort of thing. Gets pretty good Amazon reviews, too.

    Worth picking up?

    Community is either loved or yawned.

    I'm firmly in the "not getting the hype" camp. All brains and no heart. (Community that is, not me personally. I'm the whole package)

    It's like Malcolm in the Middle meets Family Guy sprinkled with a massive dose of "I don't give a shit about any of the characters"

    Some nice set pieces, some good (yet tired) meta jokes.

    I'm a big fan, but it's one hell of a grower. Took me a long time to get into it at first. Abed steals the show.

    The first series is fairly decent. Especially the 2nd half after the break, you can really see the characters mold into the focus group feedback.

    Unfortunately, as with most things of this nature, characters soon become annoying caricatures of themselves.

    The most recent season went a bit unrealistic and over-the-top, which was a shame. I still enjoyed it, but it pushed the concept a little far.

    Now that the creator has returned, I think he'll pull it back a tad.

    The paintball episodes are sheer genius!

    As impressive as the paintball episode was it was that one that put me in the meh camp. I'm too old I guess.
