What are you watching?
« on: October 09, 2013, 01:03:31 PM »
Recently finished Continuum, which was quite good. Some of the acting is not the best (looking at you Fonnegra!) and there are the usual time-travel issues, but it's smart, interesting and has some good characters. Well recommended if you can stick it out for the opening couple of episodes.

Started Defiance not long ago, and meh. It was mentioned in the same breath as Continuum, but it's a teeny soap opera, with some terrible acting. It's started down the chosen-one-with-special-visions road now aswell, which is usually when I stop.

I gave up on Defiance after a couple of episodes, just couldn't get into it.

^ I don't blame you. The acting just gets worse and worse. I don't think I'll bother to finish the series

Started watching Archer again. Fucking hilarious

Watching Longmire. I suppose it could best be described as a modern western :). I might give "Hell On Wheels" a chance but I suspect that it won't be a patch on Deadwood.

Oh yes, "Hell On Wheels" forgot about that. I think I have the first season but haven't got round to watching it yet. It's on my to-watch list.

For me, Deadwood is one of the shows that's a class apart from the rest (like Sopranos, The Wire etc) so I won't be disappointed if it's not on that level.

Marvels Agents of Shield - can't say I'm that big a fan of Iron Man or The Avengers (I didn't get what all the fuss was about) but I'm quite enjoying this

I was really looking forward to this, but I'm a bit disappointed. I'll probably stick with it though as it's watchable, just not as good as I was hoping.

Have been watching this myself, but found I am not really liking it, the movies prelude to the series the Avengers is much better, and Agent Coulsen gets killed in it, how is he still alive professing to have been shot in action and died for 60 seconds when he was stabbed in the Avengers and died from that.

Crab,eh?

That's the mystery. In a world where Iron Man, Thor and the Hulk exist, I don't think cloning or some kind of miracle resurrection widget is much of a stretch

Sherlock - Very enjoyable. He seems to have found a sense of humour and a bit of humanity (?) . . . This weeks case was quite weak but it was all about his return and Watson.

Also watching reruns of Community, which is still very funny.
