    S3 and S4 of The Wire are up there with some of the best television ever.

    Hope you enjoy!

    Finally finished watching Eureka. S4 was a bit iffy, but glad to see that S5 gave the cast a good send off with some considerably better writing.
    It had definitely run its course though - only so many times you can watch :

    'Oops, clumsy genius has broken / created / unleashed something.'
    Carter - investigates
    Henry - spends 5 minutes researching and come up with an almost impossible solution
    Zane - Only 'almost impossible'? I'll have that designed / built / written in 10 mins.'
    Day is saved


    Have now just started Veronica Mars. A third of the way through S1 and loving it so far...

    Edge of Darkness. Bit of a slow burning slice of the eighties but utterly absorbing until the last episode which kinda nullifies everything thats gone before.

    I was reading on wiki that in the original script the whole GAIA thing was pushed further and Craven actually becomes a tree at the end, whether symbollically or not I'm not sure.

    I like that all the actors look like they stepped out of real life and Joanne Whalley is cute as a button.

    I should imagine anybody who has ever lost a close relative in some violent or premature way would find this very hard to watch.

    Lost Girl Season 4 - 7/0

    Perfectly watchable time waster. Plot something to do with something supernatural. There's a Succubus, a siren, a wolf man and a light and dark side. It's got some semi-steamy sex scenes and some gory violence.

    Babylon 5 Seasons 1- 4

    I enjoyed watching through these again. It shows it age in many ways (especially the FX) but it's still a decent sci-fi tale. The story is far from perfect though. For example there's a big build up to the Shadow War and then it's over before you realise it. Still there's a good mix of characters (G'Kar is my favourite) and rarely a dull moment.

    8/10

    Hannibal 7/10

    Starts off really well but gets way too sidetracked with sub-plot and dream sequences.

    Knights of Sidonia - anime series on NetFlix. 8/10. First couple of episodes are a little confusing but steadily improves to a satisfying final episode. I believe they are working on a 2nd Series.

    Contains all the usual anime things, spaceships, big blobby monsters, penis tentacles, weird out of place character, in this case a matron bear.

    Banshee S1 - 8/10. That was great fun. Very pulpy but I enjoyed the lead characters and thought they worked well together. Kai Procter is a great baddie too.

    24 Live Another Day - 9/10. Utterly preposterous nonsense, but it's Jack Bauer and I am totally gay for him. Some things annoyed me and didn't hit the mark (Fry as PM, how they dealt with "Parliament", guns galore on the streets of London), but loved it when Jack got into his stride. MOAR JACK!

    Game of Thrones
    Season 1: 10/10
    Season 2: 10/10
    Season 3: 10/10
    Season 4: 10/10

    Utterly, utterly brilliant. It is just so very good. If I had to pick a fav season, 4 might just nick it it is even darker if possible.
    What to do with the void, I might go for the Tudors, anyone seen/rate it ?

    Elementary (1st Season) - 8.5/10

    Wasn't sure at first, whenever I heard that Watson was to be a woman, but Jonny Lee Miller makes an excellent Holmes.

    @DUFFMAN5 The first season of Game of Thrones is pretty rubbish, in my opinion. It has the look and feel of a program finding its feet and it has a cheap look that reminds me of a Kevin Sorbo production, at times I was expecting him to run in and provide some comic relief.

    After season 1 it has improved a lot, I'm also with you that I think season 4 is the best so far.

    @Mr_Sleep
    Fair enough, I have loved all of it. The only negitive I can find is "Little finger" I think the actor is aweful, his accent is all over the place, full irish (I realise he is, not the character) in Season 4, I keep expecting him to break into River-dance!. He just looks out of place, reminds me of a cockney Spiv 1940's type.
    Luckily everything else is top class.

    I have taken a gamble on "The Tudors" only 15 for complete box set off Amazon. I love reading about the period in time, so should be safe.

    Just watched Breaking Bad...

    Thought seasons 2 & 3 were too slow paced, but then it kicked off big time!

    The last 4/5 episodes in particular were brilliant though, absolutely nail biting, gripping, edge of your seat, whatever else you want to call it, stuff!

    Overall 9.5/10

    Not quite the 10 because maybe I just didn't believe some of the actions and decisions certain characters make.

    Took me a while to give BB a go but so glad I did.
    It builds and builds and builds getting better and better and better.

    @DUFFMAN5 Hah, I love Little Finger's accent, it's from another planet. It is very relevant to his character but it makes him sound like a pantomime villain. I would say that it has probably ruined a few scenes when my girlfriend and I spontaneously start laughing at its ridiculousness.

    Don't be too harsh on Aiden Gillen, he is actually a very good actor, for instance, his turn in The Wire is brilliant.

    The Fly episode of Breaking Bad is some of the most gripping and innovative television ever made.

    Finish off Breaking Bad imo.

    Watched true detective, it was ok but nothing amazing tbh.

    @Mr_Sleep I only actually noticed Aiden Gillen's accent in the last series. It seemed reasonably consistent up until then and all of a sudden in series 4 he was Orish. It was really jarring as his accent suddenly changed completely to how it had previously been.

    Yeah, Breaking Bad.

    Is True Detective relatively light? Missus always needs something less heavy or intense on the go as well!

    No, not really. The season long plot is quite dark.

    @Dougs maybe your missus would like Justified, assuming she hasn't already seen it. It is not overly light but light enough, I reckon. Plus she can oggle Mr Olyphant.

    Veronica Mars, Season 1

    Superb stuff. Season 2 already underway, and it's equally good.

    Yeah, we've seen the first episode and really quite liked it (and she is a big fan of Olyphant). Got others to finish too (notably Rescue Me, which is light enough) but will definitely be checking it out.

    Had forgotten about True Blood. Light hearted all sorted for 2 seasons!

    Justified gets better as it goes on - S2 in particular is great TV.

    Crusade

    I'd somehow missed this Babylon 5 extension. It's far from great but I like watching Gary Cole in action and manages some mild entertainment.

    5/10

    Spartacus - Blood and Sand

    I loved watching through this again. It's gloriously bloody with some excellent fights. The intrigue adds depth and the characters over the top and with great presence. The cursing of Batiatus is a joy to hear :-)

    10/10
