:yes:

Haven't watched that in a while, but it's fantastic.

My favourite British comedy series of the past ten years.
I'm forever quoting it.


The latest Dexter was the best episode in years.

The Newsroom couldn't be shit even if it tried.

Under the Dome had a well needed shake-up. Very good.

Finally watched True Blood. Very good episode, but one thing in particular left me feeling disappointed and it just didn't really feel like a finale.

Still enjoyed it though, next season should be good.

Yeah it felt way more like a set up than a finale.

Still, the set up was pretty cool so I'll go with it.

However if you they do a bunch "HEY HERE'S HOW THIS HAPPENED" flashbacks next season I'm gonna be pissed.

Felt fine to me.
I just looked at it as Season 6 concluding with that scene on the mountain and Season 7 starting straight after.

If that scene meant what I think it does, I'm gonna be pissed off.

MASSIVE F**KING TRUE BLOOD SPOILER
TVLINE: Alexander Skarsgard. will he be back for Season 7?

I can tell you that Alexander Skarsgard is going to be a part of the next season of True Blood. He will be a series regular.

TVLINE: That will be a huge relief to fans.

I am aware! I’m not going to take Alex Skarsgard out of people’s living rooms.

Not much a surprise.

Seemed a bit of short nothing scene for what it was.

Just interested to see how they follow it up.

Breaking Bad is completely wowing me every week since it came back. Which, to be fair, it did for the previous 5 years so I shouldn't be surprised. This week's episode had 2 major jaw dropping moments, the next 5 Mondays can't come soon enough!

Anybody who says they saw that first moment coming is a fucking liar.
Or a time traveller.

What an episode.
Again! :o :o

Good luck hiding under a rock, in a cave in order to avoid spoilers dude! :yes:
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Clutch, Kamelot and The Ocean for BOA 2014 pls!

I don't watch the show, but I've managed to avoid spoilers for it completely somehow. I suppose I should watch it eventually, instead of the shit "reality TV" stuff that has sucked me in, it has been tough enough and kitchen nightmares marathons for me for weeks now in between episodes of total divas :lol:

I actually feel that it's lost its way a little this series with the main storyline they're trying to persue. It really hasn't worked for me and it feels like it's dwarfed everything else that had been building up from the first season. I'd go so far as to say the "Newsnight With Will McAvoy" episode felt shoe-horned in as if they got worried about just focussing on the one thing and needed to get back to basics.


I'm really happy with the progression its made from the first season. Jim's fannying about with blondie was getting annoying, as was the constant will they won't they between Will and Mac.
This season they've just chucked that out and gone at it fresh. Of course there are a couple more will they won't theys, but neither seem so intrusive.

I love the idea of an arc with one primary focus, rather than a succession of different weekly escapades. You get a real feeling with this that it's going to end up with something huge.

I'm going to watch the latest one tonight so hopefully it'll keep up the good work.
