Can't go wrong with a bit of Kojak. It's good nowadays if to see famous faces before they got well known like Stallone or Paul Michael Glaser.

Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle.

The first episode of this new series was something else, when he picked upon the audience's lack of laughter and whatnot. The second episode is no different, right from the off he hits like an ICBM and goes on from there.

Contrast to Russell Howard.

Can't be doing with him, the 'deconstructing' coupled with the repetitious hammering-home of punchlines get on my tits.

THE X FILES

Starting from the beginning. I'm not too into the MOTW episodes at this point (midway through season one) — I like this show when it gets as weird as possible, though my expectations for that are somewhat muted given this was a network product.

Standard has dropped with these 6 episodes, if it wasn't for the smoking man I would have resigned from watching it.

Other than that I've been binge watching the recent episodes of SUITS...I don't know how long it will last again, I love the series but ratings have been falling quite badly sad

Crime Story

Binged the first season over a couple of days, my first time watching this show and damn I regret not checking into one earlier. Michael Mann's output in the '80's was pure gold and here he showed no signs of faltering even surpassing the two seasons of Miami Vice he produced in some aspects. Seeing Dennis Farina as the lead cop Mike Torello makes me miss him quite a bit as he had a hell of a screen presence and here he flexed his creative chops to infinity given a well-written detective to play. Anthony Denison plays mobster Ray Luca who's based off Tony Spilotro, which is the guy Pesci would later play in Casino and damn if he didn't outdo Pesci a bit here given a more fleshed-out role that rings truer of Spilotro than Pesci (forgive me, Marty). Also features a surprisingly strong performance from Andrew Dice Clay basically playing the gangster who DeNiro played in Casino.

Edit: Finished the series. Sadly only two seasons and ended on a cliffhanger. Overall a fantastic series.

GAME OF THRONES

Started it from the beginning rather than try and start watching it in the middle.

One thing I love about the show is that it has an opening theme with actual credits (something that is almost all but gone from other television shows, which try to do a quick intro and get back to the story).

The production values are A+; the acting is A+. Maybe too many characters..but the show is willing to go places that other networks probably couldn't, or wouldn't, attempt. Could do without some of the over-the-top violence.

I should try get back into GoT. I'm not a fan of the genre so it was hard to maintain interest.

Anyone check out The Night Manager with Tom Hiddleston?

My main quibble with the show. Hard to get too emotionally invested in a character when they can only squeeze in a couple of minutes of screentime per episode.

I prefer tits to blood and guts, but I suppose they're trying to stay true to the unbridled brutality that was medieval warfare. Humans are pretty fucked up.

Yes, it was terrific ... pretty much Hiddleston's pitch for Bond, if you ask me.

How does GoT play in Britian? Does it get censored? I've often read British censors don't like sadism, so I'd be hard pressed to understand how this makes it onto British tv without some sort of alerations.

Can't say. I'm not British and I've never watched GoT on a TV. tongue

GOT airs on a satellite/cable channel (Sky Atlantic) in the UK. To the best of my knowledge, it's uncut.

I don't like Hannity. He's the conservative equivalent of, oh, Chris Matthews....Lawrence O'Donnell....Ed Shultz (when he had a tv show), etc....He gets guests he doesn't agree with to come on his show and serves them up a question and gives them 3 seconds to answer it before he eviscerates the answer they would have given had he given them time to give it. My favorite shows on FOX News are: Outnumbered (I think Harris Faulkner is one of the hardest working, and best, anchors in television) and Special Report w/Bret Baier. Used to like Megyn Kelly, but I think she's starting to get a little enamored with her own growing clout in media, and it's starting to put me off.

Finished Season 3 of Game of Thrones. I heard Diana Rigg's character describe her own grandson as a "sword swallower". ROTFLMAO

One Foot In The Grave. Brilliant comedy! Richard Wilson is excellent as Victor Meldrew.

The entire cast is good, but I would watch happily watch David Tennant and Olivia Colman read out the phone book. Immensely talented actors.

Almost done with Series 2. The second series has improved over the course of the episodes; I'll give it that. Because it felt like the 2nd series started off well, then sputtered in episodes 2 and 3, and has started to find its footing over episodes 4, 5, and 6 (I'll see 7 and 8 later today). The whole Sandbrook plotline feels like it has been a distraction for the show; Tennant and Colman's characters feel, at times, as if they are supporting players in their own series. A couple of the characters (such as the priest and the hotel owner) seem like they've got no storylines in this season. They've been mostly background. Honestly, I'm not sure where they could have gone after Season 1; might have been better to let Season 1 be a stand alone.

Question: in several episodes the characters have talked about distances in miles, not kilometers. I though that Britain used Kilometers. Is that normal? Surely that bit of dialogue wasn't scripted/dubbed-in simply for the American audience.

Having the privilege of watching Black Sails for the first time. Many friends auditioned for it over the years, but have only just sat down to watch it. 4 eps in and I'm pretty impressed with it. Anyone else seen it?

Currently watching The Crown and so far, I'm enjoying it. That second episode was brilliant.
