Breaking Bad definitly has the best smourgasboard of stuff it has drama tense moments really good creative characters and the best dark humour cant wait to see the end.

Just watched Orphan Black. I enjoyed it, although I think if you go in knowing as little about it as possible you'll get more enjoyment. Will certainly be watching some more to see where it goes although I fear it could quickly descend into nonsense.
Also watched the shiny new Nerdist TV show, which was pretty good, although the addition of an audience and shoe horning it into the standard US talk show format made it seem a little awkward.

After watching a variety of shows on Blu-ray I decided to go back to Babylon 5 (on DVD). After watching the first episode I can safely conclude that this series did not age well, no sir. The CGI shots look hilariously bad, I'll probably keep at it because it is (one of) the best sci-fi show(s).

I've been rewatching season 2 of Game of Thrones and idly stuck on the commentary for the Battle of Blackwater episode. I was shocked to discover (and would never have clocked) that Bronn is played by none other than Jerome Flynn out of Robson and Jerome, their acting career in Soldier, Soldier gave them status as "housewives favourites" and propelled them into an unlikely pop career as a covers band scoring a number 1 with a frankly diabolical cover of Unchained Melody. As well as Jerome playing a grizzled mercenary Robson is now best known for his "Extreme Fishing" series. Who would have predicted their future career paths in the 90s? Certainly not I!

Just watched the 1st episode of the new series of Dr Who.
It was alright. Wasn't the most interesting of plots, nice introduction to the new Clara, though so far the sense of mystery they are trying to build around her doesn't hide the face that she's probably the most generic assistant since Martha. Don't get me wrong, I like her, but it's all pretty much unspectacular Who fare so far. Which is still entertaining, but hopefully there'll be some stronger standalone episodes further down the line. How good a series of Who is depends, in my view, on the strength of standalone episodes (whether through interesting companion interaction or a particularly inventive baddie) rather than the series arc which I tend to usually find rather forgettable, particularly if it spans over more than one series.

I have to say making it into more of an arc made the episode a lot weaker because it felt like it didn't really end and you kind of wanted a few things more from the episode it could have been a great mystery of what was happening to people but then they said it and who it was, the why the people were getting the upgrades then set in wasn't really explained, it kind of felt lackluster that it was just oh he just wants their souls to chow down on.
But it was fun I liked the interactions between the doctor and companion and the spoonheads were very creepy.

Eh, I thought it was a good, fun episode. Sure, it wasn't necessarily heavy, but I don't always want that. Lots of smirk and laughter-inducing lines though, particularly taking pot-shots at the fans. The bike sequence was so ridiculous that it could've only worked in Doctor Who.

I found the previous companion run to be a litte detached from the series because of the lack of re-occuring enemies.
Anyways, Has anyone seen the premire of Orphan Black yet? The first episode was quite promising.

I thought the best one in terms of being both amusing and informative was Liam Cunningham / Carice van Houten.

Much as I love Game of Thrones, medieval fantasy is a "one and done" genre for me. I can't imagine going back with commentary. Behind-the-scenes, on the other hand. That was the best part of LotR too.

Learning Theon was played by Lily Allen's cousin was so odd. And also that Robb's love interest is Charlie Chaplin's granddaughter.

I just listened to the commentaries on that episode so far (as it had the most interesting people doing them). As a general rule I tend to get bored by any commentary with producers/directors/effects folk on their own (if there's a writer there as well then it can be OK) and the ones with actors depend on how engaging/off piste they are (the actress and actor playing Cersei and Tyrion had a nice rapport going and she's wonderfully sweary, which is a delight as commentaries are often way too po faced). Will probably dip in and out of some of the others.
Yeah, GRR Martin's obsession with helmet safety was rather amusing.

Also Lena Headey & Peter Dinkage are good friends apparently (even before GoT) and share a house whilst they are filming.

The quality of any given Daria episode can be immediately gleaned based on how good its soundtrack is.
