Just finished the first season this morning,straight onto the 2nd season it's brilliant tv and yes Spacey is magnificent I actually think he is at his best when he doesn't even say anything it's the facial expressions when he is having to listen to stuff he just can't be arsed withor doesn't like that are brilliant.

Finished Generation War. Also watched a debate after it questioning issues such as Jews being friends with officers in 1941 and the way Poles were portrayed as Anti Semites.

Good drama worth watching.

 

Watched the first two episodes of this at the weekend. Excellent.

The People's Chimp

Missed the first few of Les revenants when it was on 4, so I waited till it came on netflix. Started watching last night. Utterly superb so far, this understated, relentless creepiness, the building tension and a superb Mogwai soundtrack all adding up to something really quite good.

Half way through Spiral series 4 - have enjoyed it. The female lawyer in it is also tremendous.

 

Generation War was also very good although did find the ending a bit rushed.

Interesting. I knew the plan was to have a new storyline with new detectives though. I wonder if Woody and McConaughey will still have some input?

Well the article said it was so popular that all the stars are queuing up to be in it,so a few more series looks likely which is good

20s 30s around that time. I like it for how it was back then. I won't spoil anything but I'd say it's one if the best they have done. But that's IMHO. it's hard to take a Aussie actor seriously coz I can't stand there accent but this show is good

I really didn't like the 4th one called Razor.I thought the 2nd season with the heroin trade got better and better.Thought the 3rd one was decent but nowhere near as good as the first two.

A few of the biggies already mentioned, but watched the first episode of the new season of hanibal the other day, first season was class - hopefully the second continues in the same vein.

 

Giving serious consideration to watching all the trailer park boys again, now that they are on Netflix. Always Sunny in Phildapelphia tae, class

I'm up to season 8 of the second season. It has been fantastic. Probably my favourite thing on TV at the moment.

Can't believe I missed trailer park boys, watched the first few, it's so good. As for another huge mistake, missing les revenants which is absolutely sublime TV. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Looking for something new to watch. I've seen all the old favourites like 24, sopranos, lost etc just finished Fringe and currently up to date with Game of Thrones, the following and the blacklist.

 

Anyone recommend something else? (Tried breaking bad but got to episode 5 and gave up!)

 

If you like foreign tv, the swedish version of Wallender is very good. It's on Netflix

For anybody that's not tried Banshee. I'm nearly through season two and it's really enjoyable. Much darker than season one but still a good romp.

Loving "Cosmos" on National Geographic. Documentary series explaining the intricate workings of the universe and how our understanding of it has developed through the years.

Just finished From dusk till dawn season 1 its alright. Kept a few scenes from the movie and at the start it seemed like they were trying to be too much like the movie characters but it got better and became a lot different. Wilmer Valderamma ( thats 70s show Fez) was good in it. Some good actors in cameo roles Don Johnson The boy who played Dexters dad Chesty from the Pacific to name a few. Worth watching if you have Netflix.

I've watched the first four episodes this week. It's not bad, and now it's starting to come together I'm interested to see where it's going.

 

I started watching it as it was recommended earlier in this thread. It's only 8 episodes too.

I'll second this. Interesting to see where it goes next.

 

For those who like political dramas I'd recommend Borgen, a Danish show. Follows political journalists as well as the politicians and has none of the Sorkin cheese fest of West Wing.
