The Following starts back up tonight on sky. Looking forward to it. Also Hannibal has been confirmed to start June 4th. More Mads Mikkelson is always welcome.

Watching Tina Feys new show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

A girl whose been trapped in a bunker for 15 gets rescued and decides to live in New York.

Bit goofy, but has to be considering the subject matter.

It's not laugh out loud funny, but enjoyable enough.

Plus it's all been dumped on netflix at the same time and god damn if this ain't the future. Fuck your week to week shit I wanna marathon.

Well that's another season of Episodes wrapped up. Not really much to say, it's sort of the same every year, although no less enjoyable. Now I can forget it even exists again, until it's back on next year. :lol:

Community in 2 weeks, not overly fussed with it anymore. More excited for Hannibal and Rick and Morty, but at the moment I really need a show to get truly excited about. Any good dramas on the go which aren't shit and overly dialogue-driven?

I watched two episodes of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
I didn't even raise a smile, let alone laugh.
Deleted.


Can't say I'm too impressed with the second series of Danger 5 either.
I'm only a couple of episodes in, but the balance is noticeably off this time. It's just too busy, causing more misses than hits.

The latest Better Call Saul is fantastic.
Best of the series so far and easily as good as some of the better episodes of Breaking Bad.

The Following was a good start. If the trailers hadn't given away who was behind the new group, the first episode would have been a decent thriller episode. But as they did, it was still a great start. I wonder when Joe will show up and in what capacity now.

Didn't think much to it, myself. Not bad, just not great either.

Community new season is great.

Episode one is better than episode two, but they're both back on point.

I'm an episode behind on Better Call Saul but every episode has been great so far. Might catch up on this weeks tonight.

The latest Walking Dead was one of the best episodes in it's entire 5 year run.

Agent of SHIELD dipped this week, almost back to first half of season 1 standards. Although there were a couple of interesting twists at the end.

Orphan Black and Game of Thrones back soon...hooray!

Community was pretty good, but not as good as seasons 1-4, for me at least.

Only a few jokes that got me to laugh out loud, and the absence of Troy, Pierce and Shirley has seriously impacted the show, considering Shirley and Pierce were my favourite characters on it. I also dislike how it seems to have drifted from being about the students to being about the faculty. I liked it much more when it was about finding blowoff classes and pulling pranks, and Troy and Abed's dormroom, and pillow fights. When they started to introduce things like Troy's repairman abilities is roughly where I think it went downhill.

Just watched the first episode of The Returned(French one, both are on netflix).

That was pretty damn good, look forward to the rest.

Its pretty good, but like lots of foreign drama, so unnecessarily slow. "Le Pube" is always funny though.

Actually, is it supposed to come back at some point? Was a few years ago series one was out, is there any more coming?

I loved the Returned.

As mentioned above, pretty slow, but in a fascinating, draws you in kinda way

It has one of my favourite shots in it, in the pub where the lights go out.
