Just finished watching the last 5 seasons of Sons of Anarchy...I like the show but a couple of observations I have found annoy me (please no hating here just observations).  They seem to be rather useless at staying out of trouble but rather good at not getting caught by the law.  There seems to be a lot of males kissing in it (no I am not a homophobe either) I can honestly say I've loved quite a few of my male friends over my life but don't recall kissing them but these guys are doing it nearly every episode and I just find it funny.  Tig is my favourite character.

Have started watching The Following (1 episode in) and although it seems interesting I am now thinking that it's TheBlacklist but just dealing with serial killers.  Have the whole 2 seasons to watch so will finish these off quickly.

Finished watch Justified's latest season last week and still really enjoying this and I'm looking forward to where next season is heading too.

I am also watching these shows

Game of Thrones loving it but am worried what's going to happen when the book info has been played through on screen .....surely we're not going to have to wait for George to get onto the rest before another season.

Mad Men I'm stalled half way through season 2 not sure when I'll get onto this.

Supernatural love/loved the show but am sorta getting to the point where I look forward to the end (but will miss it when it goes).

Sherlock season 3 episode 1 watched will wath the others by weeks end.  Is good I like both Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freemans portrayal of their respective characters.

Will start Marvel Agents of SHIELD when it ends it's seasons run (so in a couple of weeks).  I am hoping this is not going to be like Heroes as in be good for a bit then die off in it's appeal.  In mentioning Heroes I was glad to read there is a reboot happening of this as just when the show (in my opinion) was starting to get back on track they cancelled it.

Lastly finished Vikings season 2 the other night and was relieved that blah blah did not blah blah (no spoiler given here).

Once I've cleared some of these seasons up I will probably start season 1 of The Sopranos and Kevin Spacey's House of Cards.

corksta: I prefer to binge watch them in one go through my Roku using Netflix/Hulu/Amazon, rather than on normal TV.


Agreed, can't wait until I get internet that can actually stream Hulu so can do this 'legitimately' but in the meantime, if it's already played locally, or not locally available anyway (eg Dark Angel) I just 'buffer' it via uT

Just started watching star trek next generation. Not sure how much it is going to hold up from my memories as a kid watching it. Looks a bit cheese and with poor CGI which is to be expected I guess. Hopefully the characters hold up as well as I remember them.

Jtbthatsme, I read someplace that George has already told the producers the plot all the way to the end. In case he dies or something. So we won't have to wait on the books I guess.

Not watching any series presently. Maybe I'll find one I like on poor man's TV.

bfginger: Some series are starting for the year on channel 4 this evening.


Trouble is, that channel is so ad-saturated it's essentially unwatchable. Even recording it and fast-forwarding through the ads is too much of a pain in the backside, and interrupts the program flow too much, for me to be interested.

Just re-watched Band of Brothers in super low quality, it's one of the best TV shows ever made.

I made a month big sessions of House of Cards and still a big fan of Sopranos, Suits and The Big Bang Theory. Really think Sheldon Cooper actor is a genius, deserve a Grammy for his play role.

So why not just hit the +1 button above his post and give him a lasting 'plus one' rating too?

Watching Boss at the moment on Netflix, has a very House of Cards feel about it.

Jas777: The new series on TV ONE - Intelligence got cancelled. Is it not very good? Looks like it is a procedural with a different story every week rather than on going stories.


It does have an ongoing back story where there is an Chinese woman with the chip in her head and I found the program whilst not riveting at all was good overall

TV for me at the moment includes 
Almost Human
Arrow
Banshee
Black Sails
Bletchley Circle, The
Castle (2009)
Continuum
Cosmos A Spacetime Odyssey
Defiance
Doctor Who (2005)
Dracula (2013)
Falling Skies
Haven
Hell on Wheels
Intelligence (US)
Lost Girl
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Musketeers, The
Originals, The
Orphan Black
Ray Donovan
Red Dwarf
Revolution (2012)
Sleepy Hollow
Teen Wolf ( for my Son)
Tomorrow People (US)
Transporter The Series
True Blood
Under the Dome
Unnatural History

Broadchurch, this has to be the most tedious piece of television to come along in a while. So disappointing because it came with such hype, nominations(and winning) awards, all star cast, viewership in the UK etc.

The theme has been done to death and you wondered, how can they do it differently? They couldn't and it didn't deliver.
