The Leftovers was alright, I'm very interested to see where it is next because I love the concept (again not actually sci-fi).
    I'm enjoying Continuum and Falling Skies at the moment.

    I'm not really into crime shows, otherwise I'd probably be watching Almost Human (I did quite enjoy the humour). A work colleague suggested Falling Skies too, I'll probably check it out. I recall briefly watching it a while back and not particularly enjoying it.

    I didn't get on with Falling Skies at all, it felt cloying and sentimental in all the wrong ways (I don't mind sentimentality, but you have to earn it with strong characters and solid acting, Falling Skies has trouble with both those things) I'm pretty sure one of the actresses is called Moon Bloodgood as well, which I never really got over.

    I saw a trailer for the 100 and it looked like a post-apoc drama except with the cast of Glee as the survivors (by which I mean, they're all ludicrously attractive and clean looking). Is it actually any good?

    Edit* : If you're looking for good sci-fi, word is season two of Defiance (the one that launched simultaneously with a half-decent F2P shooter MMO) is a marked improvement on the first.

    Thinking I'll probably transition into Anime watching again for a bit, catch up with all I've missed in my year's departure from Anime.

    Finished watching Breaking Bad.It was thoroughly enjoyable but I think those that call it the best show of all recent times to overrate it. I think it helped a lot to earn such a reputation by its fans due to actually getting better as it progressed (Dave Porter's musical score helped tons). Admitedly, Ozymandias was one hell of an episode indeed.

    I'd always assumed it was a Native American name but her father, Shell Bloodgood, is of Dutch/Irish descent. Moon now has a child of her own called Pepper.

    I agree with your verdict on Falling Skies. It was too focused on soap opera relationships and those irritiating kids got far too much screen time.
    Open-faced sandwiches are upon you whether you would risk it or not.

    Television! TELEVISION! Gosh, I've missed having anything to watch for a bit. Orphan Black done, the rest of the shows I'm waiting to start back up again in September, although the second series of the crazy cool Utopia is starting up again soon and, despite my reservations as to how the first series ended (with particular focus on the fact I'm saying 'first' and not 'the') I'm still intrigued to see how they take it forward. But enough about what I haven't watched, it's about what I have!

    So I'm getting back on the wagon of Twin Peaks. It's probably clear to anyone who's kept up with me talking about it that the stints between watching episodes are rather long. The show is so damn hard to get into the mood for watching, especially as there's very little drive past revelation. Nevertheless, here I am into the second episode of post-revelation territory and the show is certainly doing a good job of still existing. The Horne duo and Cooper remain the most interesting main characters by far, with Ben's mini-break-down as to his situation being the stand-out of the episode. "Psy-cho-path. Pscyhopath." One other thing of interest is James and the Lady in Red, who I'm sure is totally innocent outside of her extra-curricular fun. Uh huh. Also, the rest of this episode can be summed up in the following text I sent to a friend:

    David Duchovny.
    What the hell.
    The White Lodge?
    What the fuck is going on.

    I don't know why I'm still doing this to myself, but I shall charge onwards!

    In other TV watching news, with the same friend we have agreed to try and watch a show on a weekly-or-so basis so that we can discuss it as we go. Like a book club, but not so much a club as a friendship and with a television show. In this post-Mad Men first-half-of-season-seven world we live in, there has been little TV for the two of us to discuss, but we're trying this new plan out by watching one or two episodes each week of Freaks and Geeks, starting with the first episode tonight.

    It is a good episode of a TV show I most definitely want to watch more of. The whole vibe about it is brilliant, from the tone to the dialogue ("You know who cut school? Jimi Hendrix. Do you know what happened to him? He died!") to the characters to the music to the Linda Cardellini, who I'm sure if I'd have seen the show when it was first on I'd have had a big(ger) crush on. Perhaps the most curious thing about the show is seeing all of the actors in it as a grown-down form as to what I've seen them as, apart from Jason Segel who apaprently hasn't aged in fifteen years through the power of magic or drumming or something, I dunno. It's not hard to see from the first episode alone how the show has amassed a cult following and I can't wait to watch more!

    When my friend recommended it that is exactly what I thought, wasn't sure if he was joking or not! It certainly tries to check all the boxes to appeal to a teen audience, and it very nearly stopped me watching straight away, but the story around that is interesting enough not to. I've not watched more than half the first season so far though so perhaps somebody else could answer better.

    I really recommend you skip to the rpisode David Lynch comes back as an actor. I didn't feel like I missed much and after sesing the finale I have no urge to complete the missing episodes.

    My guess is that that James fellow had a bulletproof contract and they couldn't just sack them. Those scenes are completely pointless and irrelevant. That also describes the whole show post-reveal.

    As for Duchovny, I found it hilarious. Seeing him in the X Files after that must have been hilarious. Still don't know why there were no references to that stand out role.

    Finally done with Fringe. Forced myself through the last season, which was completely ridiculous.

    Windmark's awesome though.

    My thoughts (almost) exactly. I though they went downhill after season 3, when they stopped aping X Files...

    Yeah first two seasons were the best, obviously. I thought the season 3 & 4 arcs had some merit, but they completely killed the mystery vibe of it all. They really should have kept it small scale and medium stakes, and had a more personal and mystery based main arc, rather than turn it all into... whatever you call the big unwieldy monstrosity they turned it into. The show had great characters and actors, and a really great thriller vibe in the beginning. The later seasons kept the characters and not much else...

    Im the opposite I thought Season 3 and 4 was great especially season 3. I will say I was very dissapointed by the ending of Season 4 but there is enough great monster of the week episodes in it that make up for it.

    To be fair, I hold no real grudge against season 3. My real nemesis is season 5, all the others were fine.
