I have no idea who Olivia Colman is..I'm going to regard that as good thing.

You definitely forgot Pointless which is what I imagine the utopia would actually be like, a crappy set with various boring people that are in a game show that is almost hypnotically watchable for some strange reason and that bloke thats surprisingly funny on Have I got News for you and that other bloke that definitely isn't funny

I don't watch much TV without having someone telling me "you'll probably like this" first and 85% of the time them being on the money so I've failed to notice Olivia Colman's overexposure - she'll always be Harriet/Sophie to me, and therefore up there with Tamsin Greig (as someone else said on the last page Black Books is a must watch) as one of the great current British comic actresses.
That guide to British telly made me laugh though, well played particularly the bemusement at Jeremy "Homeopathy, why the hell not?" Hunt's current position.
Also having got back from holiday I've been able to go on a Game of Thrones catch up binge, which was very enjoyable indeed. Spoilers if you haven't watched up to ep 3
Loved the scene with the small council shifting the chairs around. Also the actress playing Cersei is playing an absolute blinder, the little nervous tic she has developed with her hands as the pressure mounts on her with the realisation she has no control over Joffrey and that Margaery is most definitely not Sansa. In the aforementioned council scene I thought her hiding her hands under the table to try and prevent showing her weakness was a really deft touch in showing she's aware that her position is becoming unstable.
Oh and the Jaime/Brienne banter was everything I'd hoped it would be.
Plus Pod! Dany being a badass! Direwolf cake!
Great stuff and always fun to play "spot the British actor/cameo." Hello to Gareth from the office, Dame Diana Rigg, the bloke from Snow Patrol and that girl off of Hollyoaks.
Oh and I love the Hold Steady (well, with the exception of their most recent album, which was a bit mediocre) so I enjoyed the end credit song, thought the dissonance worked OK too but can totally understand why people would prefer "ooh drama!" music or even silence instead.

Tyrion and Bronn should have their own show at this point. Probably something in the detective genre.

I would also say this of Jaime and Brienne so entertaining there banter, would definitely work in the medieval crime drama mold.

Just watched the Southland season 5 finale ...really hoping that it gets renewed for a 6th season (because you can never have enough Lydia or Cooper in truth), but if it bows out as it did I'm good with it
*crosses fingers for renewal though*
If you've never seen it, if you liked The Wire, then you definitely check out. By far the best cop drama that's been on TV since that show.

Caught up with Arrow.
It has everything: hot women, Crixus, exposition during hot shirtless training, Windows PCs, Windows Surface, Windows phone.

I've not been at home the last week and a half, so I'm a little behind on a few shows, but I caught half an episode of 2 Broke Girls. So, someone had tried to sell it to me before as one of those "okay" shows, plus Kat Dennings. And whilst it does indeed have Kat Dennings, it doesn't have much else. Now I'm not going to pretend that half an episode at random is acceptable to pass judgement on, but I can just tell it's one of those US sitcoms, you know? One of those. I've seen a few clips otherwise too and it seems like there is actually a pretty decent concept, but the writing is so incredibly average and it's padded so very much that I have to ask, just how on earth does it get made? How on earth do any of these other shows get made?
Also, I dreamt there were more episodes of Farscape and the planned plot of the Nebari declaring war on everything actually happened. Alas...

well either way, its when who is scary its at its best. also with moffat at the helm, its been a joy for me.
either way, my rotation is: castle, arrow, grimm, doctor who or sherlock when Im lucky. sherlock is hardly a series, but for fucks sake is it good. Ive watched them all several times and I normally never do that with series. ever. rewatching after ages, yes. but never after just having seen it.
