Finally up to date with From Dusk Till Dawn. Now it's free of the shackles of following the film, it's turning into its own vicious little beast. Jeff Fahey, Jake Busey and Danny Trejo are quality.


Started watching Scream Queens last night. It's a horror comedy set in a girls sorority house made by the two chaps who ruin American Horror Story every year so I wasn't expecting it to be great. As it happens, after a crap first episode it settled down and became a lot more enjoyable. Some very funny/gory moments.
Will watch again.

Started watching You're the Worst, which is similar to It's Always Sunny insofar as a lot of the main characters are awful people so I don't really feel empathy when they get into awkward situations or have bad things happen to them. Pretty fun.

Also lovely legs on one of the girls.

Well so far I am dead impressed with Gotham. 1 episode in too. Might be able to cram in another one if I am quick.

Gotham is great. Trying to avoid spoilers for the new season for a few weeks so that I can binge watch it, but the first season was one of very few series' to get me hooked recently. The guy who plays the Penguin in particular does a fantastic job.

Yeah I can't remember the last thing I was hooked on from the pilot. A lot of characters and the actors that portray them I like. I got through two and I wish I could watch more but alas I need to slide off to bed. I guess there is always tomorrow.

Hell's teeth, I thought Gotham was abysmal. The first episode was really promising but after that it went to complete shit. I gave up about 7 weeks in and the general perception seems I didn't miss anything.

I am surprised! I think the only con in the show was the I am not fond of the actor that portrays Alfred. He might warm to me. Think the actor that plays the Penguin is really unsettling, perfect for the role. Rest of the cast ranges from good to great. Oh I am not so sure about Bruce Wayne either, but child actors as a rule piss me off. Coral (Carl) off the Walking Dead I hope gets the most gruesome TV show death of all time.


Scream the TV show is now on Netflix. Pretty happy about that, also comes with a decent write up.

Alfred is played by Sean Pertwee (son of Doctor Who and Worzel Gummidge's Jon and famous for the rather excellent Dog Soldiers). I thought he was one of the best things in it!

It's fucking excellent.

Crashed through all of the Made In England's just in time for the S03 finale on Sunday. Man, that was an incredible piece of TV drama.

Copy and paste to WMMHT thread. Yeah there was that little that made me happy today, or yesterday. Or last week. Or for a few months.

Season 5 is already there. I read this off Netflix, so that's season 6 on Netflix on the 15th. Great news for you if you haven't seen season 5 already, something to keep you going until the 15th!
