What is the last Television series you watched?

The show changes drastically starting with episode 7 of season 6. So if you don't like the way things are going don't worry its all about to get turned upside down.

The second halfs of seasons 7 and 8 are better than their first halfs as well come to think of it.

My gf is going right off it, so that's good to know.

We've actually moved onto Arrested Development for a while. Great show and often laugh out loud funny.

Hardly, but it is good.

Larry David is perfect in Whatever Works.

Quint, I take it you've finished Season 4 of Mad Men? What'd you think? I honestly feel like it should have ended on the scene in your signature, it was so beautifully shot and the one frame afterwards felt like it could have been removed.

Mad Men is on hold halfway through season 2 whilst my gf catches me up. I've bought all the blu-rays and the plan is to watch from where I'm up to together from now on.

Sadly I've had to watch Twin Peaks alone because it's not her thing at all. She doesn't do surrealism; her comfort zone only allows for the likes of Bones and Castle, annoyingly.

Hey, shut up! Castle has Nathan Fillon!

We tend to try pilots together and take it from there. Twin Peaks was the first failure actually. I loved it; she did this:

I don't watch it, but i tried it and it was okay. Not my sort if thing but I could see the charm. Plus I get confused when I watch Fillion's antics.

Sexually confused?

Yeah I saw that available to stream on Netflix. Looks like another shaggin' and sandals soap opera along the lines of Tudors.

Okay so suddenly Curb got 10x better. I'll be sad to see Cheryl go, but it needed to happen. The show was getting stale and a big shift like that was required.

The Borgias is worth watching mostly thanks to Jeremy Irons performance. The episodes tend to drag a bit, but when it's good, it's fucking awesome.

Irons for the win!

Apparently, this one has better reviews than the one with Irons... I'll see both. Reviews can't be trusted (even if in this case, I'll think I'll agree with them)

Production value of the Showtime one (Irons) must be good. I believe they did The Tudors as well.

Let's see what this does over at Metacritic ...

... Oops, only 66/100. But still, it's better than the 64/100 the Tudors received and I liked that show.

8/10 on IMDb.

The best word to describe this show is 'beautiful'. The sets and costumes, like other reviewers have pointed out, are stunning. Everything flows together cohesively, and nothing feels out of place or awkward.

Going into this show, from the buzz surrounding it, I was expecting a soap opera, akin to The Tudors. Calling it a soap opera, however, really doesn't do the show justice. From what I've seen thus far, I'd compare it more to HBO's Deadwood or Rome. Sure, it shares some elements with soap operas, but it's so much more. It's hard to describe without giving out spoilers, though, so you'll just have to see for yourself.

Deadwood and Rome you say? Okay, Blu-ray it is!

The Borgias has its moments and Jeremy Irons is excellent (as always). But overall, I felt they lost a lot of potential with this show. I believe the Tudors was better than this.

Theres something that Showtime tends to miss with its historical dramas. Camelot was really flawed in parts and I wouldn't watch it if it hadn't been for Eva Green's excellent performances. Even Ralph Fiennes was good, I just hated the guy who was casted for Arthur...urgh.

Anything over 50 on Metacritic and RT is usually worth watching.

You sure bout that? Pirahna 3D has high 70s on RT, wouldn't call that worth watching :D

Then Boardwalk Empire (88/100) must be fantastic!

Boardwalk Empire is the best show on TV. It's really, really good. Season 2 was even better than Season 1.

I watched the pilot, which was decent, and then a random episode after that. I almost died of boredom.

HBO should have kept Bored To Death and Hung.

Hung is also very good, I'm so bummed they didn't renew it. The season 3 finale was a non-finale!

Boardwalk Empire only works if you watch every episode in order. Otherwise nothing will make sense

The other day, I watched "Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy". It failed on two counts:

1/ it wasn't luxurious, and

2, it wasn't funny.

"Shameless" is back (yeah!), but it's the last ever "Hustle", next week (yah boo sucks!!).

Still, roll on 7th. April...

Anyone here watch Cougar Town? I keep hearing it's exactly like Scrubs, and that Bill Lawrence is struggling to keep it on the air. I want to watch it eventually, but don't really feel like buying the DVDs.

I think Season 3 starts on Valentine's Day. I might watch just to help keep its ratings up.

You only help the ratings if there is a Nielsen box in your home

I watched the pilot and didn't like it. I'm sure it got better, but I haven't botheed to find out.

I'm currently attempt all 9 seasons of the X-Files, in a relatively consistent fashion. I'm in the middle of season 2 right now. I tried this about 5 years ago but only got to season 4 before I decided to take a break but never started back up again.

So I'm trying one more time!
