Breaking Bad is kinda slow at points, but it's really as a counterpoint for how insane some of the later scenes are, just to see how far it's come. I look back now and really appreciate the slower moments, I like how things that would be glossed over in other shows are main plot points at first.steam: sketch

Re-acquainting myself with Deep Space Nine.
After that Stargate SG-1.
God I miss the 90s with its bountiful supply of excellent sci-fi.

Some would say DS9 betrays the vision of the future Gene Roddenberry envisioned for humanity, but the war provided a backdrop for some great stories about the ends justifying the means, and popular characters like an exiled operative and failed bartender rode the line more than most. Even minor characters had an intriguing past, which was a source of constant conflict, strength, or both. As much as I love The Next Generation, a fair chunk of the characters are sleeping pills with legs.

Finally grabbed Netflix a week or two ago (I got a free trial for Arrested Development and noticed that almost everything I would want to watch is either not available or free with Amazon Prime), mostly for Supernatural (which is not free with Amazon Prime :p).
Caught a few episodes in syndication and loved them all, so decided to finally watch the show.
So far, it is really quite good. The writing isn't always super strong, but I give them credit for making a "magic" system and following it, even if that means basically every threat is resolved by "Salt and burn the bones". Mostly I watch it because Jensen Ackles and Jared Padelecki really have their characters down great and interact well together, and because the show is not afraid of laughing at itself or the absurdity of the situations.
I forget who told me this, but I fully agree: Supernatural is like Buffy minus the feminism but with two, later three, ridiculously attractive male leads. And a lot more shotguns.Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

American Horror Story. First season. I enjoy the randomness and guest stars, hate young Farmiga.
The maid is just...

Revisisted The League of Gentlemen. It's still brilliantly dark.

The new season of American Horror Story got off to a decent start. Not sure how it'll pan out being Hogwarts for teenage girls though.
And it's finally happened. The Walking Dead has managed to disinterest me so much after the last two seasons that I wasn't bothered to watch the opener for the new season.

Archer season 5 promo might be the best thing ever recorded:

All the little details in it were fantastic. The Babou arm-patch, the photo of Mallories' dog, the Other-Barry locker label...

Sons Of Anarchy 6x06 - Salvage
Some excellent music this week. Bookending the first and last scenes of the show with different arrangements of "John The Revelator" was a great way to signify what a turning point this seems to be for the club. Given that the last time that song made a significant appearance was during Donnas' funeral way back in season one where Jax decided enough was enough, returning to it now was pretty indicative of serious events. The opening version was so slow and mournful as Jax and Chibs toured the burnt out husk of the clubhouse, while the version at the end was more upbeat as were all the guys.
Also, Pearl Jam during the chase sequence.
Speaking of which, holy shit those vehicles got smashed up good.
Galen's been rumbled by the rest of the Irish now. Something tells me if they move against him, he'll still come out on top because it needs to be Jax who ultimately takes him out after that very literal take on "Hands off."
If Patterson had such great hair underneath, why was she wearing the wig at all? I wouldn't put it past Kurt Sutter to have written that in just for the reveal and that "Time to go hood, sister" line. The look on Tara's face when she saw her next looked like it was just as much confusion about the hair change as it was about the trial date conversation.
No Bobby and The Nomads spin-off show then. Glad to see the guy back anyway.
Venus van Dam. That whole exchange with Gemma was clearly just the set-up for whatever Tig will ultimately be involved in next week, because Tig/Venus.

Stern and noble son of a military officer in role of commander? Check
Female comms officer who wears Skullkandy headphones instead of actually military equipment? Check
Some guy who wears a mask with no particular features in a world where nobody else is shown to wear such an item? Check
The "token" craa-zy guy who does all the over the top flailing arms jazz. Check
A girl whose about 12 who has the chest of a 23 year old. Check
And finally, a roboticly monotonous girl in a skirt just enough to cover everything who says sexually inappropriate things such as "come onto me" and "my only order is to obey you" (spoiler she's the ship) Check.
Also they decided the best thing to do with their ship is to fill it like it was a college dorm of a kids who like anime a lot. Lots of kawaii posters and toys.
So after being introduced to the crew I had to turn it off. In it's defence though, the fight at the start between the humans and the bad guy ships was extremely pretty to look at.
