    Yeah I knew that kid had something to do with the plot, but hadn't expect it in that way. :P

    It was one of those cold opens where you were like "uh what does that have to do with anything, am i missing some sort of symbolism there?" but then at the end your like "ah!" I like that about the show.

    Yeah, Vince Gilligan is obsessed with Chekhov's Gun.

    On a bit of a comedy binge. Have revisited the wonderful world of Darkplace and am now moving onto Green Wing.

    Actually here's a question; has there been any recent comedies I may have missed that have nailed Green Wing's sketch show/comedy drama format? I honestly can't recall anything since that has tried to do this (League of Gentlemen was first if I recall and the recurring plots were even looser than Green Wing's plus the third series was more of an intricately tied together series of grotesque character portraits, which I'd actually like to see more of too!) never mind do it well.

    Haven't seen anything like Green Wing since, I tried to check out Episodes but that is far less crazy from the two episodes I saw.

    Yeah, Episodes is a different beast entirely. First series had its moments but I found it merely OK, never got around to watching the second, anyone know if its worth it?

    The makers of Green Wing, or at least some of them, had a show recently on Channel 4 called Campus. It was basically exactly the same as Green Wing, but on a University campus instead of a hospital. It was OK, but the characters were no way near as amusing as the Green Wing ones. It's probably on $OD if you didn't catch it. Worth checking out for curiosities sake if nothing else.

    I was watching Charlie Brooker's A Touch of Cloth last weekend. It was pretty hilarious at times, even though the relentless punning did get a little tiring and too predictable at times. It was nice to see an absolutely unashamedly silly 18 rated Police Squad though.

Anyhow, my point is; I've heard that the two share the same kind of feel about them. How accurate is this? I'd be quite interested in following it at some point.
    I guess it's fairly accurate - they're both low-budget, throwaway fair with dodgy CGI. Warehouse 13 can occasionally trend a tad darker in places though they're both fairly light-weight but fun shows. They're also technically in the same universe, with a couple of crossover episodes happening.

    I'd recommend Damages to anyone not watching it - just coming to the end of it's final season, it's solid, intelligent legal drama. Tells one story per season, and does something clever-ish with structure: the first few minutes of the first episode show something from the very end of the story and from then on the first and last couple of minutes of each episode slowly reveal that bit backwards as the main plot heads towards it.

    The first episode of new Doctor Who was pretty good. As usual with a Moffat season opener/ender there're lots of questions but I feel the most pertinent one is, spoilers, obviously,

    JENNA-LOUISE COLEMAN WHAT WHAT WHAT?

    My experience with Doctor Who this weekend was odd.

    Twitter was going "OMG, can't believe it, not going to spoil it". Even Moffat chimed in to thank people who had seen the previews for not leaking the big surprise.

    I finally get to see it late Saturday night, spend the entire episode waiting for this big shock, and it didn't happen. Turns out by not reading the casting news for the show, I didn't quite get the significance of the episode. Found it quite weird the show-runners patting themselves on the back for keeping one thing quiet that was only a spoiler in the first place because they put out casting news for the rest of the season in a press release months ago...

    I thought it was her then dismissed it because, I thought, what fucking sense would that make?

    Then of course I discovered it was.

    I thought she was delightful, I also learned Amy/Rory are not that interesting anymore and didn't really like them in this episode.
    But to kick off a season with Daleks is great, I love Dalek episodes.( eggs-terminate had me giggling) I found last season not really tied to any previous story or theme, like previous enemies or encounters making it not really feel part of the universe.

    Also, it seems you guys didn't kow she was going to be cast, it was announced for a couple of months now.

    I was tuned in enough to know Amy and Rory were leaving but not enough to know who the new companion was. I mostly just watch the show though, I don't follow it. Then again there are people less tuned in than I am that I guess will be shocked when she comes back later in the year so that's kinda cool. I'm in an odd middle-ground I guess.

    Yeah the last season doesn't really have a heavy on-going story arc, contrary to the Tennant season where it was one big epic story.

    As for Matt, I like him as the Doctor but not as much as Tennant and I'd like to see someone else have a go at it, though I guess that won't happen for quite a while.

    I did, hence my reaction to seeing her.

    The Rory/Amy "divorce" thing was very strange if only because it was announced and resolved so quickly. I think it was more useful as a means of showing how hopeless the Doctor is/has become ("What can I do?") than as actual plot-stuff unless they're going to come back to it somehow within the next four episodes.
