    Has it always been that big a break though. I wouldn't know as I burned through most of the new series online to get up to date. But 5 episodes and then a 3 MONTH break and then one episode and then another big break doesn't seem to be a great way to get people involved in the show.

    Last resort has become dissapointing it lost a lot of momentum spends time on soapy nonsense and doesnt have any balls to really put americans against americans. It should have been a mini series or a film.
    Last Resort is not very good at all since the first episode. this would've been better as a movie or mini-series. i just can't see this plot going further than 1 (good) season, but they'll stretch it out given the chance.
    666 Park Ave. also isn't very good. they rely on cheap scares for half the show.
    I thought i'd give these 2 shows a shot this year but have lost interest already.

    Although I watched all of it I thought it was a mediocre show with some high points and those high points were worth it, the episodes with the Teen Titans and Justice League were goofy but fun and Michael Rosenbaum, John Clover and James James Marsters were the best part of the show.

    They have also Green Arrow played by Justin Heartly which is basically Batman.
    pretty much everything you talked about is why i wanted to watch the show. to see the Justice League stuff and Green Arrow.
    Think I might pass on this, but since i do have season 1, maybe i'll give it a shot if i'm bored one day. who knows, maybe i'll enjoy it.

    Yes on 666 park avenue as well, I thought it could be a nice soul of the week see temptations and be a kind of maybe near Twilight Zone thing with the devil but it just falls back on soapyness and not very interesting storylines and characters. Not even Terry O Quinn can save the show.

    Yes its rather disappointing this season to be honest...

    The Thick of It inquiry episode was excellent. Looking forward to next week and finding out how one of the finest comedies of recent years will end.

    Park Avenue becomes a disappointment? Only watched the first so far and quite liked it.

    well it's not terrible. i might finish the season at least since i'm recording the season with the 'ol dvr but i think it could be much better. without Terry on the show...i doubt i'd even bother watching it for real.

    Just finished watching Buffy and Angel through on Lovefilm, currently forcing my way through Dollhouse. But it's just shit isn't it? I've got to the point where it supposedly changes for the better. But it's just become even more convoluted and full of plot holes that are unsatisfyingly explained through Science! a few episodes later.

    HA! Trailer Park Boys is one of the best and funniest shows i've ever watched. have you seen the movies LeMonde? there are 3 different ones that you have to see if you haven't already.

    Garth Marenghi's Darkplace & Look Around You came on here in the states on Adult Swim. they didn't show many episodes but do show it occasionally. i didn't care for it personally. Adult Swim used to be just cartoons but they started getting into stuff like Tim & Eric and some other stuff which isn't that great imo. Children's Hospital is kinda funny though.

    I haven't watched any of the movies yet, but I shall!

    There are only six episodes of Darkplace, ​but I absolutely love them (particularly the Broccoli episode ((with a cameo from Graham Linehan (((co-writer of Father Ted))) and the episode Apes of Wrath, featuring Noel Fielding as 'The Apeloid' - the bike chase / assault course at the end kill me every time.

    I'm also certain that Darkplace has the best / funniest opening credits / theme tune ever.

    Snuff Box is also pretty good:

    I watched 7 or 8 episodes of Rome. It's Forrest Gump: Ancient Edition except not that funny. Two idiots are responsible for every major event in the first century BC!

    I never quite got on with Snuff Box. It veered from brilliance to "what the bloody hell is going on?" with wild abandon. More miss than hit for me.

    Anyone caught the latest Walking Dead yet? Thought this episode was pretty solid.

    Been watching Inbetweeners (British Version) and while it started kinda eh, I'm halfway through season 2 and it's really growing on me. It also gives me a lot of flashbacks to the one year I spent in North Ireland studying. The mentality, pub outings, the slang... even the blue cushion/sofas in their common room were the same as in my Uni, I swear.
    Postmortem: one must die- Political narrative-adventure game playing an Agent of Death who must take ONE life that could change the fate of a conflict-torn Nation!
