Yeah, I quite liked it - got through it in a week while working abroad.

Anyone seen the From Dusk Till Dawn prequel series?

Happy with the new season of Parks and Rec, though I still think they could have ended it at the end of last season and it would have been perfect. Always happy to take more, though.
Cougar Town has come back with its final season and it's hit the ground running. Forgot how much I love that show.
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia also came back this week and is typically excellent.

I watched a couple of episodes and thought it was alright, seemed to just expand on the movie but it had its own little bits going on. I didn't stick with it though but its worth watching a couple of episodes.

Really looking forward to the next series, although massively disappointed that Michael Pitt isn't going to be Mason Verger this time around as I thought he was fantastic.


I wonder how they'll make him as tall and Muscular as Dolarhyde needs to be. Also very disappointed about Michael Pitt leaving, but his character is behind a mask from now on, so I guess it's not that bad.

I watched on my month free of Netflix. It wasn't too bad. It's more of a straight remake but focuses a lot more on the vampire mythology. It's a slow starter but picks up speed near the end.

Started Broadchurch season 2 with my parents tonight. 2 episodes in and it's already just as gripping as the first. Absolutely fantastic show.

Delayed on this one, but It's Always Sunny is back, and it's still amazing.

Haven't checked wikipedia, but I think it's meant to be back, and I've heard good things.

Anyone see The Man in the High Castle? It's one of the pilots being shown by Amazon Prime, based on the the Philip K Dick novel about the Nazis winning the war. As pilots go I thought it was quite brilliant, really hope it goes to a full series.
