I usually don't get into sitcoms. But have been loving the Goldberg's. Probably cause its based in jenkintown which isn't far from me. Its got a lot of local references that only people around here will get.

Also really excited Rupauls drag race all stars 3 is coming soon. I don't care for drag at all outside of the show. But fucking love that show. My gay heart can't get enough. :)

Amazing show, with an awesome soundtrack too. Can't wait for the second season!

I've just started watching A Series Of Unfortunate Events on Netflix. I liked the books and the movie was alright too so didn't know what to expect from this. It's rather good though, with a very 'Pushing Daisies' vibe to it. The first episode was pretty slow but then so was much of the first book. The casting is brilliant though...Neil Patrick Harris does an unexpectedly good job, but my favourite is Patrick Warburton as Lemony Snicket. Totally different to Jude Law from the film, but he's brilliant as a sort-of narrator guy.


Waiting to binge on Season 2 over Christmas. Hope it will have been worth the wait :)

I was really surprised how good it is and really funny too. Could easily replace American Dad as my favourite, modern cartoon.

I kinda fancy watching the Originals as Daniel Gillies character, Elijah, has a very sexy vibe. I'm craving that right now. Plus, Vampires are cool.

I'd never even heard of Gravity Falls, but now I want to watch it.

(My list of shows to watch grows long, and my time grows thin. It doesn't help that every time I begin a show thinking I'll just watch it, René ends up getting interested in it too, and then the watching together goes even slower!)

Oh and that show is sooo dark! So few people know about it. Papa Lazarou was sinister and funny, worked with a guy who, a skin head, called Dave, who was one of those latent homophobes, one of the chefs and I, would quote Papa Lazarou at him all the time. Not wise really but it was funny, "Dave, You my Wife now!" He used to hate it.

Also liked Edward and Tubs, A local shop, for local people :lol:

Been binge watching Dexter and the twilight zone.

Seen them both before. But for some reason I really wanted to see season 4 of dexter again. John Lithgow was the perfect actor to play the trinity killer.

And I love how the season ends. So bitter sweet. Really well written season.:)

Finally watching the last part of Teen Wolf. I love the absolutely ridiculous parts that have only one purpose - gaybait.

Case in point:


Carver twins though :heart: .

I've not long discovered Orphan Black. I'm surprised how much I'm loving it. Can't wait to get home from the in-laws tomorrow to continue the binge.

Oh, that was quite good, the gay brother is sassy too, and hot. The main characters attempt at an english accent in the first episode is also comedically funny, fortunately she gets better (mostly)

The actor who plays her is really good at playing the "roles" she does however. No spoilers!

Star Trek: Discovery

It probably helped that we went in with low expectations......needless to say we were pleasantly surprised.

Yeah, Felix is awesome. I did notice her English accent was a bit shoddy, but then I watch alot of Murder She Wrote and their English accents are the worst, even when played by English actors. So any other fake English accent is OK in comparison.

Don't get me wrong, I like Star Trek, was practically raised on it, but I wish they'd just let it die with dignity.

I shouldn't say that, having not seen the new show, but after Enterprise, well. I just feel that other sci-fi is more relevant, more dynamic and less hindered by established canon and expectation.

Feelix and his ass are awesome :D The first time I heard her speak, i thought she was going for a New London vibe, south africa style, then realised otherwise. How far you got?

Nearly done season one, so still got a few seasons to watch.

American Gods was another show I loved. can't wait for session 2

Oh, in that case.
You know how versatile an actor she is, I thought she sucked by then when she played so many different roles and actually did them justice, I was totally :applause:

I liked American Gods, but I had high expectations, having read the book. I actually found I enjoyed the little mini-stories in each episode, more than the over arching plot. That said, Ian McShane is a god in almost anything he appears in, except maybe Lovejoy, didn't like that show much.

Problem is that they are trying so desperately to create prequels instead of actually continuing the stories. Enterprise was for me an awesome show. But with Discovery they pretty much gave us the same story packaged in a different box. I think the writers and producers don't have any more ideas on where to take the show. Though the viewers of today are probably also the problem. Star-Trek was never really too action packed - it was almost boring. Show like this wouldn't really work today. People don't have the attention span. I personally would love to see a show continue after the return of the Voyager. Sticking to the original material where possible and not trying too much to change what star-trek is.

Discovery isn't a terrible show, but breaks so many things in the established universe that it hurts. At least it feels like star-trek compared to the new movies. On the other hand we see a war going on. But that war doesn't really seem too war-like. The epic large scale battles of DS9 were much better at portraying war. Not to mention that it didn't feel rushed.

not seen him in that! I did like his short appearance in american horror story, as a sadistic, christmas hating burglar. It was darkly humourous!


Okay, so really really dark.... but he does play a bad guy so well!
