I'm really enjoying Survivors so far... first ep was a little slow but it was worth sticking with and I can't wait to see where it goes next...

Also got to mention Spooks which continues to maintain its high quality despite the ruthless bodycount that accompanies the show's main cast!! If you missed this week's ep on BBC Three then make sure you watch it on BBC 1 on Monday - it's written by our very own Jimbo! :)

New TV blog should be up tomorrow BTW...
First things first, stay calm.

Like so many of these things, I forgot about the opening episode of Survivors until half an hour in, and haven't managed to see it since, so I'm now two episodes down. I'm sure they'll repeat it though.

Started watching Apparitions but missed yesterday's episode (again, forgot about it).

I'm more or less remembering Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe, though - fun and illuminating, and I think he's right more often than wrong. Things like Britannia High are pretty easy targets, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be shot at.

I'm loving the new series of entourage, and the sarah connor chronicles is getting much better.

Supernatural is still my fave TV show of the moment though.
Thanks for the ride, sir.

New TV blog up now :)

Since writing that I have stopped watching Fringe... enough is enough.

Just watched the first Wallander story this evening starring Kenneth Branagh - pretty straightforward cop thriller set in Scandinavia (although all the characters speak English), but quite enjoyable with its sombre tone, quality acting and nicely shot by Anthony Dod Mantle who does most of Danny Boyle's films.

I stopped watching fringe weeks ago. Just utterly disappointing. Now watching eleventh hour instead

IT Crowd is top of my viewing list. Didn't think they would top the second series but this weeks episode of Bloke talk and the boyfriend who looks like a magician, kept the laughs coming.
Also been catching up with South Park - most recent episode viewed was High School Musical rip off.

I just finally got around to watching the first episode of fringe and I loved it. Why do you all hate it?
Thanks for the ride, sir.

Cause every episode is like travelling back in time and rewatching the same thing over and over again :lol:

Thanks for the ride, sir.
