Raymond E Fiest or Terry Brooks Shanara series would so awesome or even Katherine Kerr's DagerSpell series would also be another great watch

PlatinuM195: I enjoyed True Detective and House of Cards recently.


I almost enjoyed TD! I started watching the last episode on my Sky Hdi and got interrupted by SWMBO who does not like that sort of thing, so stopped watching and thought I would pick it up next day or something.

Meanwhile, the machine decided I had viewed it and deleted it to make space, ensuring that the last 75% of the last episode remains a mystery to me!!

If you want a good story TV is where its at,

 

  • Person of Interest (really underrated its diehard/batman not csi/ncis)
  • Orphan Black (the actress in this is insanely good)
  • House of Cards
  • Hell on Wheels
  • Breaking Bad
  • The Wire
  • Arrow (cheesy batman lite goodness)
  • Sherlock
  • Suits
  • Sons of Anarchy
  • Walking Dead
  • Justified
Going to try Fargo next

What I'd really like to be made is a good scifi series (early battlestar like), Leviathan Wakes sounds the most promising

"On April 11, 2014 Syfy announced that they gave a order for a direct to series based on the "Leviathan Wakes" and "The Expanse" series. The cable network ordered 10 episodes, produced by Alcon Television Group ATG). Academy Award-nominated screenwriting duo Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Alfonso Cuaron's Children of Men, Iron Man) wrote the pilot; they will continue to serve as writers, as well as executive producers."

Totally with you on POI. Love that. That guy IS Jack Reacher!! He should do the gig instead of Mini-Me Cruise if they make another JR movie.

Have to add Supernatural for Cheesy Goodness too.

Not as much of a fan of House of Cards, now it is getting further away from its original BBC version. But is still very good none the less.

 

 

But agreed on Movies being Meh, Hollywood are not prepared to take risks on original screenplays etc, and only back IP that comes with its inbuilt fan boi's.
