Re: TV: Current and Recent

For the most part I'd rather read a book - certainly rather read a book than watch a film, although I only really want one version - I avoided reading the Song of Ice and Fire book just because I knew Game of Thrones was being made. For the most part I'd rather they made something unique rather than...

Re: TV: Current and Recent

Revolution was alright, if very predictable. As annoying as that main girl is though, the thinly veiled pro-republican messages are more annoying (the bad guys banning guns and burning flags? Subtle). Not really got into Matt Smith as the Doctor myself. He seems to childish at times, particularly in...

Re: The Book thread

Waiting patiently for book three of the Demon Cycle ( daylight war). Read the first two and end of book two ( desert spear) leaves you wanting more so high hopes it'll be a damn good read. Damn I remember reading those years ago. Third ones still not out? Damn he's taking his time. Can barely remem...

Re: TV: Current and Recent

When I say guess, I mean until the last 10 minutes. An maybe not so much plotholes as unanswered questions.

Re: TV: Current and Recent

Just watched the last Utopia and I have to say I was disappointed. I mean everyone guessed who Mr. Rabbit was straight away, surely?

Until the last 10 minutes or so. That was awesome. Still loads of plotholes though, so hopefully theres a second series.

Re: The Book thread

Zombies, zombies, and more zombies for me. Just finished World War Z (not bad, was expecting a little more tbh), and now onto The Walking Dead - Rise of the Governor. Not shit. Never been a fan of zombies, always found them boring and the stories are always pretty much the same. That being said, tr...

Re: TV: Current and Recent

I've said this before but todays British sitcoms are complete rubbish compared to todays American sitcoms. Look at the quality of a show like 30 Rock compared to Miranda. What good American sitcoms are there? I've always found them absolutely horrendous, and completely unfunny. Never seen a full ep...

Re: The Book thread

Just finished reading Embassytown by China Mieville. Really starting to love his stuff, it's really strange but also kind of awesome.

Gonna start reading the first Malazan book by Stephen Erikson next...
