Anyone watch that Peeky Blinders on BBC 2 last Thursday? Sort of a UK Gangster drama set in the 1920s just after the war. Not sure about it yet, lots of clichés in the story department. But I do like the PTS angle on some of the characters. It also has Sam Neill who I like, playing a Irish supercop who seems quite good. Its only been one episode so things might get a little better.

I loved Sleepy Hollow.
It has witches, masons, Clancy Brown, demons, time travel, Sulu, the Revolutionary War, Orlando Jones, magic priests, a hot redhead, a decent scare or two and a Headless Horseman who wields shotguns and machineguns. As far as I can tell the Horseman's stunts and weapon power-ups are stolen directly from Tim Burton's movie.
I like how Ichabod Crane doesn't act like a fish out of water all the time - he just rolls with it, is able to figure out things by himself and even blend in well enough.
This has a lot of potential. It reminds me of The Secret World MMO. The ratings are insane and the word of mouth is good. Please don't fuck it up!

Due to AMC's creative bankruptcy, Mad Men like Breaking Bad will have its final season split into two half-seasons, each one with seven episodes (yay, an extra episode) and will ultimately finish in 2015 (booooooo!). AMC: "Because we really, really need it to still be on the air!"

So TWD is pulling a Stargate Atlantis, basically doing the same show with different faces? Well, it can't possibly be worse than the main series."Reason is the madness of the strongest"

If Mad Men is a good show, pacing or not people might be inclined to do the same thing and watch through it all before it starts to air again.
Do I think it's the best thing to do for a show? Not really, but it'll be interesting to see if it works again. I can tolerate you suffering for a year in the name of science.

I have now marathoned my way through 13 seasons of King Of The Hill.
I can honestly say, if Peggy had in fact died in that parachute jump where her chute didn't open, I would not have been sorry to see it. As integral to the show as she is, I cannot stand her.
2x04 - Hilloween
Hank taking on a fundamentalist who wants to ban Halloween. "Get out of my house! ... Exodus!"
4x19 - Hanks' Bad Hair Day
"Damn Hank, you look like the fella who killed the other fella!"
6x01 - Bobby Goes Nuts
"That's my purse! I don't know you!"
7x21 - Night and Deity
Bill and Boomhauer standing vigil over a pigeon that's coming down from a bad trip after eating hallucinogen laced popcorn. That description alone should make it worth watching.
10x15 - Edu-macating Lucky
Hank cleaning carbon build-up from the grill: "You know some people like to keep this stuff on for flavour. We won't be eating at their houses."
11x05 - Hank Gets Dusted
"We're related to ZZ Top?!" "I'm gonna tear your beard off!"

Trying to slowly watch Vikings. Not too bad, although the Norse are way nicer than they should have been.
Fever Ray's song in the opening doesn't hurt at all, though.

Watching the documentary The Story of the Jews makes me angry about how we have treated these people throughout our history, makes me realise what Is real actually is for the Jewish people. Surprised that the Jewish banker stereotype comes from medieval era. Also in 18-19th century people thought that Jewish bankers were controlling the world for their evil ends. There's some people that believe that now!
