Just started watching Season 1 and I really like it. It's like Mean Girls in prison.

Unimpressed that they forced a scenario to get penis into a series about a women's prison, but besides that, season 2 is shaping up to be just as exciting and compelling as the first.

Still plenty of hot lesbian nude scenes.

But the highlight is still Piper's ever growing character. And more individual background stories bringing in more dramatics and empathy into the other characters.

So glad a whole second season is up rather than just an episode a week. I'll probably be done the whole season in a week.

Penny Dreadful is alright so far. It seems to be finding its footing now after the rather boring second episode by going a bit more head on with episode 3. Hopefully the rest if the series is good especially as it's now got a second season.

It should have done - it had boobs and everything - but it couldn't seem to make its mind up whether it wanted to be a serious drama or some kind of comedy so I never went back to it. The acting left an awful lot to be desired as well.



I got sucked in to it after the 3rd or 4th episode. And it does mix comedy and drama, pretty well I thought.


I also just finished season 2 of OITNB. Brilliant stuff! Better than season 1 too :D

The laziest, most obvious twist they could do and been hoping they would never do it for the sheer ridiculousness of it but alas.

I was already dubious on the point of a 4th season and it just seems like they've done this for the sake of an extra season.

Worst thing they could have done.

Bloody stupid.


I didn't know people watched that show.

Despite the fact its obviously meant to be like a posh American Eastenders, its actually quite good in an incredibly camp, this is so stupid its funny way. But yeah, that "twist" was so bad. I liked the rest of the finale, apart from him still being alive. Just why?


Prett accurate assesment.

Yeah the rest of it could have easily finished things off but it felt like they did that and the stuff with Daniel just to give them something to go into another season.

Will probably watch it but dunno why so much.

Watched the latest episode of Fargo earlier.
I don't actually think I breathed more than three times during the whole episode.

Best episode by a mile.

I just finished the first episode of Fagro. It's...weird hearing Martin Freeman speaking with an American accent.


But I liked the first episode overall. It seems funny!

I wasn't overly impressed with it, but it was still good enough. Can't watch the next episode til the Tuesday after, the goddamn Channel 4 watchers will have seen it before me!

Fargo needs to be renamed to "People Being Dick Heads : The TV Show".
