TV Serieseseses



  • For me and the other guy still following Lost, due to start next Wednesday @ 2130, woo-f@ckin-hoo, last series!

    Also watched the True Blood series, which I found I enjoyed, although the 2nd series dragged out a bit.

    Also, just finished watching the 4th series of Dexter, after a slow start and deviating from the format that made the show, the last 5 episodes were excellent, really intense, John Lithgow as Dexter's nemesis of sorts was superb.

    possible spoiler

    with a very surprising, and in alot of ways, disappointing end, although I understand why, given this being a part of the reason it started slow IMO.



  • Yeah, the ending was pretty much of a cheap shot IMO. Didn't enjoy a lot of the 4th season. Probably won't bother watching the next.

    New [I]Breaking Bad[/I] coming soon. Can't wait.



  • [quote name='Tim']New [I]Breaking Bad[/I] coming soon. Can't wait.[/QUOTE]Excellent.

    Have been watching odd episodes of The Mentalist to pass the time, which is quite entertaining at times, pretty light-hearted.

    Has anyone seen Flashforward? I watched the first 10 episodes of Series 1 and quite enjoyed it. Decided to buy the book......nothing like the TV series at all, apart from being based on the same basic premise and having one or two characters of the same name.



  • I watch [I]Castle [/I]sometimes for a bit of light hearted fluff. The "ABC music" can be rather annoying though.



  • [quote name='Bones']Excellent.[/QUOTE]

    I wonder if the Jesse Pinkman character will have much of a role in it - provided some excellent comic relief at times.



  • Lost!!...yep last season cant fricken wait for it to be over...or will it be...
    maybe a movie to follow?...



  • Also on C4 starting tonight is the Family Guy spin Off 'The Cleveland Show'
    Have been watching it already, slow start but is finding its feet as it has gone on (currently up to episode 12 i think)

    I [B]l-o-v-e[/B] LOST..!

    Last season had me sitting on the edge of my seat and I believe this, the final season, gets even darker (so is bound to have me biting my nails)

    I would so love a movie!

    Yeah, they'd have thought of that eh? fingers crossed



  • How about a "Draper's 11" spin off movie from Mad Men.

    I think The Mentalist' is one of the best shows on at the moment. Lighthearted (love the deadpan-Korean guy) but has that darker storyline woven through it. I believeRed John' features a bit more in other series. I'm definately looking forward to its return. I think Simon Baker (Aussie actor) is cool too. I liked him in `The Guardian' as well.

    I'm looking forward to this. I love Sci Fi.

    Is the book called `FlashForward'? I ask because often a television series will say based on the novel such-and-such by whoever.



  • [quote name='Tim']I wonder if the Jesse Pinkman character will have much of a role in it - provided some excellent comic relief at times.[/QUOTE]Gonna be interesting to see where it goes. Jesse used to wind me up something chronic with his ability to fuck shit up all the time. His missus was hot though.

Fiennes character can be a bit grating in a Horatio Kane kinda way, but it's a good watch. Yeah the book is of the same name.



  • Tim you underestimate the kiwi psyche.

    Your signature says "If you really believe in an impending alien invasion, you don’t spend most of the day watching “Three’s Company” reruns, hit Burger King, then go online and chat about the how the alien invasion has already begun for 45 minutes before a peaceful nights sleep."

    To be honest I think the only change I'd make is I'd have watched `Third Rock From The Sun' reruns.

    Which reminds me. Did anyone watch The Visitors' orDay of the Triffads'?

    I remember the originals (but I think The Visitors' was calledV' back in the 1980s. The 80s version, I hate to say, was much better.

    I thought the recent television version of DOTT was pathetic. How can anyone make such a hash of such a classic?

    Starts this coming week, as does Lost.

    Thanks for the heads up on Fiennes character.

    I hate to say it but I thought the character Horatio Kaine was so badly acted that I found I HAD to watch CSI Miami each week to get my fix.

    Yo! She was pretty much the perfect gothy model-actress-whatever.

  • Started watching that Modern Family program a week or 2 ago and it was quite good for a laugh eh



  • [quote name='Bones']What we're gonna do is...[/QUOTE]

    What we're gonna do is ... take my sunglasses off and turn sideways and stand with my hands on my hips. 🆒



  • isnt that flash forward soemthing to do with the Lost team? I steer clear of anything that uses Lost as a reason to watch it!

    Yeah I like the Mentalist too, as you say, light hearted but with the darker story running trhough, and for the most part, most of how he solves things is explainable, not merely just he thinks it, and basically outwits them to get the answer.

    As for Horatio Caine...the looks, the turn of the shoulder to look into the distance while explaining to someone they are busted....oh, and the Hummer for the Police vehicles? C'mon!!

    ***Spoiler

    Tim; on Dexter, yeah I think the whole family thing is what has ruined it IMO, deviates his character away from what made him. Given his meticulous attention to detail, seeing him make all these elementary errors detracts form the show, so while ridding the show of one of the reasons he has been distracted, while appropriate, seemed pointless.

    Will still watch it if another series is made, as I still like it, but not with the enthusiasm I used to.
