I really need to catch up on Californication.

Last season I watched was season 4 which was the one that had 'Sasha Bingham' played by some ridiculously hot girl called Addison Timlin.

Just started True Blood - enjoyed the first 4 episodes but already starting to see some faults that I think might carry on (as far as Jason is, his little escapades seem to be filler because they haven't got enough proper story stuff to fill an episode)

Twin Peaks Blu-Ray set was officially announced yesterday. Contains the full show, the movie, 90 minutes of deleted/alternate scenes (the Holy Grail of Twin Peaks fanboys) and tonnes of new stuff with it all being overseen and remastered by David Lynch himself. Excited!!

oooo! will totally get the twin peaks set.
I've been eyeing up the 'gold' DVD set for years but never got round to buying it. :)
Blu-ray = omnomnom.

Stick with True Blood - it gets much better after the first season, with far less of Jason doing what Jason does!

disagree whole heartedly with this.

overall i like true blood, but the 1st season is the best. 2nd season is pretty pants. 3rd season is very good again. season 4 & 5 are dross, but then season 6 is brilliant again. overall i'm looking forward to season 7 :)

when is banshee season 2 coming to the UK??

i'm addicted to trailer park boys atm. watching it on netflix. half way through series 3. all kinds of genius.

I've been looking forward to Crossbones since the average Black Sails.

I only liked the 1st season of True Blood, completely lost interest in it now but my wife is still watching it. I found the character of Russell Edgington to be irritating which i don't think was the intention.

Crossbones looks pretty cool. I thought I'd mention some of the premiere dates as there's not much on American TV over the summer, though someone took offense lol. Anyways Game of Thrones is doing really well, almost every other episode in Season 4 is breaking viewer records in the States. I can see why they renewed it for a 5th and 6th Season, the books will likely be done in their entirety too.

I don't follow Banshee personally but one website is claiming Season 2 will be out here in July.

OK, just finished watching the first two seasons of American Horror Story on Netflix and looking for something to follow it up with which is also available on Netflix.

Has anyone on here watched Hemlock Grove and know if it's any good?

Game of Thrones is going to experience a huge backlash at some point when the tv show gets past the books. I already think think they have made a number of errors with deciding to add extra story elements which aren't in the books while leaving other very important ones out. Season 5 will have to very Dorne/Iron Island based in order to correct this.

Andy. I've got Hemlock Grove on Blu-ray. Only watched the first two episodes but enjoying it so far. Not anything special so far, but it's fun enough and the cinematography is quite often amazing. Can't think of an alternative to AHS though, to be honest - love that show!

True Detective is amazing. Man, I can't wait to see what direction they go with a new story

hannibal series 1 was very very good and nicely different to anything else.

series 2 is stunning. my favourite show atm (and that includes game of thrones!!).

Not started Hannibal yet. Rewatching True Detective (which is amazing, McConaughey is fantastic in it) and finishing off Banshee series 2. Then it's a short wait til July 29th when Twin Peaks finally gets a Blu-Ray release, giving me yet another reason to re-watch it (along with David Lynch's entire film catalogue)

In reply to an earlier post on 13 Jun 2014 14:06:59 BDT
have you seen any of hannibal paul?

it's very stylish, beautifully shot, and has down-right some of the sickest ideas ever put to film.

it's not as grittily realistic as true detective, (ultimately not as good as true detective - possibly the best thing i've ever seen. tie between that and breaking bad) but it's just as twisty, a bit pacier and more gruesome.

like the classy sibling of banshee tbf.

so - no spoilers - but does banshee s.2 satisfy (being a huge fan of s.1)? coming to sky atlantic no specific date in july apparently.

Posted on 13 Jun 2014 14:11:19 BDT
Not seen any of Hannibal at all, bud. Does it follow the films or is it set before/after them? Will order it when I'm through with the ones I'm watching now (forgot I've got the entire House collection on BD arriving next week too)!

Banshee s2 has been great. Not quite up to the standards they set in the first series (which is probably the most criminally unknown show on TV ATM - can't believe they don't market it at all) but it's more of the same pretty much. Finished Top Of The Lake and The Returned last week. TOTL is beautifully shot and we'll-acted and TR is a creepy French mystery-drama that is awesome. Can't wait for s2 of that!!!

hannibal says in the credits that it's based on red dragon, but it's not like either red dragon or manhunter. it's set (i believe) before red dragon.

it's will graham and hannibal working together and goes from there. awesome series.

good news about banshee. just read that s.2 starts on 7th july :D

Red Dragon set before Silence & Hannibal (film), isn't it? Love the books & Silence (not so much the other films) so interested to see how it sits in terms of tone

Looking forward to Wayward Pines next year, Hemlock Grove s2 and picking Fargo up again - a show I loved what I saw of but too busy work schedule to get properly into on TV

Posted on 26 Jun 2014 10:45:48 BDT
true blood series 7 (final series) at 9pm on FOX, and banshee series 2 at 10pm on sky atlantic, both on 7th july!

whoop :D

and hannibal just gets better and better/sicker and sicker :P

noticed last night that s.1-3 of falling skies has been added to sky boxsets on demand, and.....the complete sopranos is coming soon!

hopefully by the time i've worked through the sopranos, sky might add the wire too? fingers crossed :)

Did anyone watch that 'Murdered By My Boyfriend' on BBC3 the other day?

Not my usual sort of program but the missus works with domestic abuse victims so we watched it on iPlayer last night. Very disturbing program but very well done.

started watching falling skies (season 1) last night. watched the first 2 eps.

it's good, but kinda cheesy. reminds me a lot of revolution tbh. i'll crack on tho - already rooting for them to find ben ;)

and the best thing on tv atm - hannibal. 2nd series just keeps producing the results.

Hemlock Grove is ok, nothing spectacular. I found it feels to directionless at times and fails to establish characters worth caring about or investing in. It also tends to confuse too much which just left me lost for ages trying to pick up threads which nearly turned me off it.

Need to try American Horror Story again, wasn't too impressed with the first episode, just seemed to be random happenings with no real reason or direction. Kind of worried that it'll be a series of horror cliches that makes little sense just because they want to reference as many horror tropes as possible.

Finished watching Dead Like Me the other day, pleasant 2 seasons of character comedy/drama. Grimm is a reasonable action series, enjoyable and easy to watch. Currently on Breakout Kings which is entertaining enough and really being mostly worth it for the guy from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Game of Thrones
Walking Dead
Almost Human

And some more no doubt, love them all

I watched some of the first season of Falling Skies but thought it was very slow to get going so abandoned it. Been hearing from friends that it got a lot better in the second season though so may have to go back to it.

Also keep meaning to give Revolution and Defiance a try.

Only thing i'm really watching at the moment is season 3 of American Horror Story and season 2 of Following so need to find something to sink my teeth into until the new US TV season in Autumn(Can't wait for Flash after watching the pilot).

Anyone been watching Penny Dreadful and know if it's any good?

Shows i've got my eye on at the end of the year are

Marvel's Agent Carter
Public Morals
The Messengers
Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D
The 100
