iZombie is fantastic. The entire cast is great, the writing is great, it doesn't take itself too seriously but can still surprise you with some unexpected pathos, and it whips along at a terrific pace. It's very Buffyish.

And it has the best pungame in television.


I avoided it because the comics bored the tits of me, I might give it a shot though at some point.

ETA: also the name is utter dogshit.

Yeah, but it seemed heavy going. The thing with Keifer being president was betterer for my attention.


It isn't. It does a great job of mingling overarching plot with individual storylines that stay within their episode. It's also a fantastic US politics primer.

I would have ditched iZombie for The West Wing but then Craster is all manner of wrong in the Annie vs Britta debate so what does he know really?

Also everyone has been nice about iZombie and that's what I was finding so I shall carry on with that. And American Gods. And Colony (bit meh) And Dark Matter (she wants me to watch that - any good?)

By all means finish watching iZombie if you've started but if you then don't go on to watch The West Wing (especially if you're instead going to trudge through something you yourself consider 'meh') then you're a tit.

It's trying so hard to be Firefly but the characters just aren't interesting.

The Android is cool, though.

Though new watchers of the West Wing will have to deal with this fuck knuckle for the first few episodes.

She's in the entire first series.

Then she flat-out vanishes. I don't think they even bother to explain it.

Is that the godawful film with Captain Holt and the giant dragonflies?

GLOW stumbles through its first few episodes, with a bit too much cringe factor, but it does seem to pick up.

Well that was a splendid evening of television.

Preacher was all out nuts and much more inline with the vibe of the comic. While Twin Peaks was...er...probably the most Lynchian thing I've watched since Eraserhead, brilliant from start to end. It seems he's not making a third series of Twin Peaks but a really long sequel to Fire Walk With Me.

It's not an Amazon show, it's an AMC show that airs weekly. Amazon just happen to have the streaming rights in the UK.

I really liked American Gods. It was well done, Lovejoy was ace, and the other casting were very good.

Well we know it crashes into Batman, just wondering if they can squeeze another season out of it first.

They've stated it's its own continuity, so no guarantees any of them turn into anything. I've only seen the first two seasons however.

I'm on my second watch of Breaking Bad and we've just started the final season...

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
I thought this before but I'm now convinced. It should have ended after Gus died. Season 5 just seems tacked on and like they're trying too hard to 'start again' but with a bigger, more ominous bad guys.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still enjoying it but it's very far fetched and because I know what's going to happen, I'm allowing myself to look at it differently.

I finished Season 2 of SONS OF ANARCHY last night and it remains enjoyable albeit a bit of a trashy treat.

I am forced to conclude however that as a collective the Sons just aren’t very good at ‘crime stuff’.

(Mild general spoilers for Seasons 1 and 2 of SOA follow.)

Like, if they stuck to auto-repair, and the porn business, and repo work, they’d do alright for themselves. Instead, they constantly do VERY BADLY at gun running and associated illegal activities which lead to various negative side-effects, including but not limited to the following, for themselves, members of their families, and those close to them:

1 - Getting killed.
2 - Getting blown up.
3 - Getting gang-raped.
4 - Having their children stolen.
5 - Losing all their money.
6 - Going to prison.
7 - Killing each other by accident.
8 - Having their businesses burned down.
9 - Getting their only remaining eye gouged out in prison.
10 - Creating huge amounts of collateral damage.

And so on, and so on.

These people are sub-standard criminals, they should just enjoy their bikes in their free time, and make porn and fix cars for money.

I might take a break before starting on Season 3 (the ‘Irish’ season….) and dip into something else for a bit.
