    tl;dr: KGB sleeper agents living in America deal with shitty missions and shitty family life. 10/10 pilot, will watch more.

    That sounds pretty cool, I'll have to look into it!

    God help me, I've decided Buffy is probably something I should have in my TV knowledge and am watching the whole damn thing. I caught a couple of seasons when it was first run -- the one where she suddenly gets a sister and the one where there's a terrible cyborg made by Lindsay Crouse, but missed the early stuff and the late stuff.

    So far there are moments of terrible cringeing (I hope Alyson Hannigan gets better at acting, for example) but also some good hilarity. It is a good time-passer on my commute. Maybe I'll follow it up with Angel.

    Season 2 has a few, and almost every episode in Season 3 is some sort of mission.

    If Season 5 doesn't break your heart, you are made of stone.

    I've been watching Banshee which is a show about punching and fucking. At 15 I would have loved it. The walking stubble impersonating a sherrif is amusing but it's basically Cop That Doesn't Play By The Rules taken to the next step. Justified does this with far more charm and charisma and happily is back for a new season.

    Angel made me laugh a lot more. Lorne is the best! Youtube keep removing his damn Lady Marmalade performance.

    You definitely should. By the time you get to that scene with Angel and Wesley in a hospital room towards the end of season 3, you will be totally invested in the show.

    I was just watching Archer going on his chemo-fuelled rampage against an Irish mob and it was great so far. So, that counts as sorta like a mission... right?

    And well, good to hear that!

    Started Breaking Bad, the first episode has some of the most awkward scenes ever. All in all, a very promising start.

    I watch both, and after reading your comment I think it's because my girl has a thing for bad boys with badges.

    So no one else I know watches The Killing (the BBC subtitled version), and I can't stand it anymore but have to speak out: Pernille is so annoying. I'm halfway through the first season and have my fingers crossed that, whoever the killer is, he'll do us all a favour and do away with her.

    So I've been watching the first Season of Girls finally because I did like the first 2 episodes when I watched it ages ago and the second season being on kind of made me want to watch it all so I can be up to date.

    To be honest I don't get the adoration or the hate to me its ok, it doesn't set anything on fire with its comedy or its drama or even its characters. One of the things I do like about it and i wish it did more often was yeah have the characters do all the stupid stuff and the stuff people in there 20s have to go through since I'm in my 20s it speaks to me a lot I can see the stupidity I can sympathise and I can laugh as well. When its trying to be a standard sitcom it doesn't work.

    The other thing is that the gender really isn't that much of an issue, for a show called Girls there isn't really anything specific about girls that much to be honest they are just characters to me they could easily be male they could easily be 5th dimensional beings and they would still work. Maybe that's the reason people adore this show because its that rare show that makes females be characters and not just sex candy or love interest for the main male but to be honest if that is why then yeah we live in a terrible world because that should just be the standard.

    I don't know I like it but I again don't think its blazing anything and I don't think its as funny or emotional as something like Community. I do like the low keyness and I hope Lena Dunham does do well with it and continues the 20 something stuff because I do mostly enjoy that aspect.

    Though one aspect I do like is that it can show Hannahs character being quite a plain character and not be all obvious that shes fat and stuff which I like since it does put normal peoples bodies on TV and Film which lets face it seem to just put perfect specimens up there.

    The Killing is great. I kind of got distracted during the second series unfortunately and didn't want to watch the third till I've seen it so I'm waiting for the box set to drop to a sensible price. The first series did occasionally get a bit too "ah, but wait another twist!" but actually seeing a crime series deal with the effects of a long investigation on the police, family and suspects rather than have everything wrapped up in an hour or two was immensely refreshing.

    The problem I had with Girls was that I didn't like any of the characters. This is in comparison to Mad Men, where not liking the characters is part of the enjoyment of the show. I just felt like I couldn't relate and a lot of their problems were easily solved if they weren't being so stupid. For example, the character establishing scene of one of the girls is that she's bored with her boyfriend, but can't be bothered to do anything about it. It just struck me as a bit "Well, there's one very easy way out of it, unless you're so uninspired that sticking around is fine, in which case I don't want to watch you." Granted, I'm male so there's obviously some difference there, but there was just nothing I could latch onto. I'll throw up my disclaimer and say that I only watched the first episode (twice, once by myself and then again with a friend) and the first few minutes of the second, so I imagine it improved, but there was nothing that grabbed me, nor anything that I felt I could latch onto and appreciate.

    I went in with some curiosity too because there was such a fuss about it and on paper, there were a lot of things I could get behind, but in reality I just sat through it going "Oh come on​."

    I guess maybe you have to be that age maybe(though I never have felt it before) but I kind of got that as that she is to scared to be outside of the nice comfort zone of having a boyfriend and having to look around and that she still likes all the sex and stuff, but I agree that it can be frustrating since the show never really states that totally it kind of just leaves you with that in mind a little bit.


    The problem I had with Girls was that I didn't like any of the characters. This is in comparison to Mad Men, where not liking the characters is part of the enjoyment of the show.


    To be fair I like the characters and I hate it when they go with some really big "THIS IS SOMETHING YOUR NOT SUPPOSED TO LIKE" its annoying I like the characters in some episodes where they have flaws yes but they also have sympathy in some things and I dislike when people go "the point is that your supposed to hate them" clearly its not really.

    I went in with some curiosity too because there was such a fuss about it and on paper, there were a lot of things I could get behind, but in reality I just sat through it going "Oh come on​."

    I would say it definitly improves because a lot of the characters grow even the characters that seemed like assholes from the start like the boyfriend get a lot more dimension and it seems suddenly why she is with him. I kind of wish actually that it didn't take a whole half season to get to that point really.

    In fact I would say start from Episode 6 when the main character goes back to her parents house and go on from there because it is a lot stronger and the chaarcters are so much more realised(except maybe the other two)
