Some of the lines on the off are funny, but nothings too amazing unless you understand context.


Well the 2 I saw were the crying one and the modern warfare montage.

What did you think of them?

And was it the one with Donald Glover/Troy/The Black Guy crying? because he's amazing at that.

Well the crying clip was funny, and it was the black guy crying for various reasons. The MW clip got me interested but there was very little dialogue and it had the inception music over it. I should like it so I'll give it a go.

All three episodes of Community were brilliant.
Digital Estate Planning was utterly brilliant.

SPOILER GIF.
(Sort of, but not really)

However, Harmon's been pushed off as Showrunner, and he isn't happy one little bit.

People still watching Game of Thrones: is it going to be Blackwater tonight, or next week? I haven't watched since the 3rd episode and I've lost track of where I think it should be up to.
Seven Sisters - Proper Heavy Metal from London Town. Upcoming shows:

23/05 - Heavy Sound Festival, Poperinge, Belgium
18/07- Metalbrew, London
01/08 - The Black Heart, London

Game of Thrones was good, I felt it was probably the worst episode of the season so far though. I can't wait for next week though.

GoT has been good so far, episode 7 felt a bit like filler/bridge between previous episodes, updating characters and leading onto the next episode with very little happening except the king/dragon thing near the end.

Final ever episode of House ended the way i predicted, well about 90% of the way i predicted. A very House-like ending with only one thing I could quibble over but one of the best endings for a show I've seen.

Snog, Marry, Avoid is back. The new presenter is kind of annoying though.

Last two GOTs have been very good. Picking up the pace a bit now.

Four episodes into the final season of The Sopranos and that's going along very nicely too.

No Bones this week. :x

Sneak peek at season 3 of THE WALKING DEAD

It was a good ending, curious to know what you would quibble over? Part of me was hoping it would have ended the other way, happy endings don't really suit House.

Well its only a little thing, but I would have liked to see him reunite with his wife. But to be fair, it ended the only way House could end. I wouldn't really class it as a happy ending as you know what will happen to Wilson, which is a sad ending in itself.
