MI-5 is awesome.

I've been watching the new season of The Hour, as well. Also getting into the British Top Gear. Great fun.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

I noticed Trailer Park Boys was available on Netflix instant stream so I figured I'd give it a try. Ended up watching the entire series in about a week. One of the funniest shows I've ever watched. I definitely recommend giving it a shot if you have Netflix.

Figured Dom would love this. This has spoilers for pretty much every episode so don't watch if you aren't current.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

I watched the first episode of the new series of Top Gear last night (it's about 3 weeks old now)... I haven't laughed so hard in ages, when Jeremy Clarkson went out onto the roads of Britain in this:







Oh he also drove it through the British Library

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

You guys with Cinemax should check out Banshee. I watched the first 6 episodes last weekend and it is extremely entertaining. Very graphic with the sex and violence.

Its about a recent ex-con who goes to the town of Banshee in Pennsylvania Dutch country to find his old flame/crime partner. He assumes the identity of the new sherriff. The town has nazis, hillbillys, bikers, Amish (including an Amish crime boss and Amish slut), a twentysomething mayor, lots of hot and often naked women and a disgruntled deputy and police staff.

It is delirously over the top with tons of great action and graphic sex and violence. Pure entertainment!

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

Has anyone seen Enlightenment? The one episode I caught seemed liked a comedy directed and written by Terence Malick.

I have been watching it since the beginning and I like it a lot. Laura Dern plays crazy extremely well and the Mike White character (he is also creator I think) is just about perfect.

Saw that Top Gear bit. Classic. I'm glad they still do stuff like that, given that some of the show seems extremely contrived nowadays.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

I watched Netflix's House of Cards and thought it was very well done. Kevin Spacey is mesmerizing. I figure that's the equivalent of a tv show these days. 13 episodes waiting there for you.

House of Cards was great.
I'm really enjoying this season of Justified.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

TV shows currently in the rotation:

Merlin - Entertaining for what it is. So long as you don't care that they completely butcher the original King Arthur story.

Frasier - Currently doing a complete rewatch with the wife, we are up to season 8. I've always had a soft spot for Frasier.

Sanctuary - Watching season 3 at the moment, I still enjoy it.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

I still haven't watched Game of Thrones S2 through yet, I'm a slacker. For some reason I've been watching old episodes of Jeeves and Wooster instead.

I'll also be watching Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror S2 in preference to GoT too. Did you yanks get the first season of Black Mirror (there was only 3 in that run). Like someone took The Twilight Zone and decided to make in extremely cynical, and hold up a mirror to modern society.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

HoC original was awesome. Remake was meh.

Spiral season 1 was very good. Season 2 was great, really enjoyed it thoroughly. NFLX.

French, with subtitles. Very graphic and modern crime drama though.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

Also recently enjoyed Black Mirror (it's a UK show - think The Outer Limits but technology is the backdrop)

Also SLOWLY working through Game of Thrones season 2. I also have cued up Breaking Bad S1, Banshee, and Justified S1

I dunno. I think South Park pips it, but it's close.

Also close is Graham Norton, 8 out of 10 cats, and Room 101

I defer to Dom though, he is the Pele of anal.
