The Walking Dead was pretty decent this week. It sort of feels like chess-piece storytelling and now I'm just waiting for a thing to happen.
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Good, innit?

I spent Saturday ploughing through series 2. About halfway through.

Good to see some love for Inside No. 9.

Literally only know one other person who's been watching it aside from those in my house.

Brilliant twisted randomness.

Completely disagree with Inside No 9. Episodes one and two were excellent for completely different reasons, but number 3 was a complete let-down after everyone was hyping it up as the best. Not funny, not believable, couldn't care less about the characters. Hope next week gets back to the form of the first two.

Been enjoying Inside No.9 and House of Fools a lot. The second IN9 episode was one of my favourite pieces of tv in a very long time.

I've also whistled through all 10 episodes of Orphan Black recently. What a brilliant show...and what a quite superb performance from the lead actress. She deserves awards aplenty thrown at her. Anyone else a fan?

Just came in to ask if it was boss. Glad it is, will definitely start watching it.

On another note, could anyone tell me if Peaky Blinders in any good?

The third Inside No. 9 was good, even though I had (all but one detail of) the ending figured out during the phone call from Stevie. Like I said, it was good but half an hour wasn't enough to really do the story justice. It was originally written as a two hour play while P&S were doing League of Gentlemen, and while that would have been too long, I think 40-45minutes would have been a better length for it to really shine.



Also gave Brooklyn Nine-Nine a go last night.
I smiled twice, and I thought about laughing at another part.
But I didn't.

I watched the first episode of True Detective.


S'alright I guess. I find it kinda irritating how everyone speaks at such a low pitch because super serious drama.
