    @QBranch
    Not necessarily, as Samwell is still a pretty big part of the Wall's story, it would seem, and Bran and the lot are still in the area.

    True, I forgot about Bran and his group. They need more screen time, IMO. Regarding Ygritte- had she survived, it's very likely she would've taken out the likeable but cowardly Samwell.

    @QBranch, if you check out ComicBookMovie.com, there's an extended promo for the season finale, but be warned, it shows a snippet of footage that, to me, looks like:

    Jaime (or someone else) leading Tyrion through the corridors of King's Landing, perhaps helping him escape.

    EDIT: 'True Detective'

    You can find my thoughts on it in the last page or so, but I bought it on blu-ray Tuesday night and started it later on, so I pretty much did my rewatch of it in a matter of a day. Fantastic character study with some thrilling moments. A show can't come more highly recommended, it's one of the greatest, philosophical, thought-provoking, and most symbolic shows you'll ever see.

    A double bill of the new series of Toy Hunter here in the UK! Absolutely love this show as it brings back childhood memories! And I actually met Jordan at the memorabilia show last November here in Birmingham at the NEC event! Had to do a serious double take! :O As I was so surprised to see him! A great guy and even got a free photo with him too! :-bd

    Just started watching Hannibal after buying the first season on DVD.

    Overall pretty good so far. Mads Mikkelsen is excellent as Lecter as is Hugh Dancy as Graham. The cinematography is somewhat spooky with its grisly dream sequences and, as I expected, there are several nods to Silence of the Lambs.

    One question, is the red-head tabloid hack Freddie Lounds an intended caricature of Rebekah Brooks or is it just a coincidence?

    So many TV shows I have to tackle. Part of me wants to start 'The Killing,' another part wants to start 'Sons of Anarchy,' I want to rewatch the first two seasons of 'House of Cards,' and I'm going to start the final season of 'Californication' shortly.

    I'm also watching Hannibal @Mrcoggins. I'm about to finish Season II. The little nods to previous movies are very classy and the series as a whole is superb.
    Mikkelsen is Hannibal.

    Sat down and watched 11/12 episodes of the final season of 'Californication' in one sitting. It doesn't have me laughing as hard as the earlier seasons did, but it's the final season so I can understand the route they're taking with Hank once again juggling so many decisions. I'm looking forward to the series finale on Sunday to see if the show answer the ultimate question that fans like myself have been dying to know.

    If a show is good enough, I manage to fly through so much of it without even realizing it. One episode blends into another, and before I know it, it's over and I get to a point where the next season isn't out yet.

    Watched the finale of Fargo on Sunday. Hands down the best show I've seen in quite some time. Utterly brilliant from start to finish.

    That's what everyone has been saying, makes me even more eager to check it out.

    I never watch tv anymore. So disappointed by that medium.
  • edited June 2014 Posts: 6,432
    Just watched season 6 of Smallville, enjoyed more this time some good references to DC universe. Some excellent episodes in this season that often gets negative reviews.

    @Thunderfinger can understand that, often listen to radio/podcasts or watch movies. Was thinking earlier how long before tv becomes obsolete with over saturation of multi media.

    Ended Season 2 of Hannibal and
    I'm speechless. I can't even comment as I don't know what happend and why. The only thing that is certain is that Hannibal Lecter is pure evil!

    Thunderfinger, you really should give True Detective a look. Brilliant, out of the box acting, atmospheric, some of the best quality I have ever seen on TV (it was on HBO, I believe). You can now rent it or view it online.

    It was on HBO, and is one superb miniseries, of sorts. (I'll call it that until we see what they do with season two, and if they just consider them separate miniseries with the same title.)

    @4EverBonded, I know we've talked about it, and if you have the ability to play them, you should pick it up on blu-ray. I got it the day it was released and immediately dove into it when I got it home, and the quality is phenomenal. It was already really nice when I saw it online, but the sharp video and audio quality to it makes it that much better.

    Also, I threw on the subtitles when I rewatched it, as I'll admit, the first time I saw it, I became really confused sometimes with what Rust was saying or who the characters were.

    Arrow season one, did not watched when aired. Bought box set and several episodes in, enjoying it its intriguing as to where it may go and, a few DCU characters have shown up early on.

    It's a great show. I finished watching it a week or so ago. I like the layout of the story, and the acting is superb.

    I've been getting into Tron a bit lately. Did anyone see Tron: Uprising? It was an animated series that came out in 2012, with Elijah Wood providing the voice for the lead character.

    24, or how we call it here ; 24 : London.

    Didn't watch the last season through, but have been glued to television with this one. It's miracle what four years can do to you, and it was time they brought back the other JB.

    Skins. Watched a bit of the first series when it was on but never really bothered after that. My wife loved the first few series though and she wanted to rewatch it so I've been watching them all with her.

    Didn't really like Tony at first. He was a dickhead. But I warmed to him a bit, he became more sympathetic and he had some funny moments. What's good about it is that the characters all seem real even if the storylines they're involved in don't. I knew a girl just like Cassie when I was at school and Chris reminds me of myself when I was younger. I like how they get big actors to play the parents too. Danny Dyer, Peter Capaldi, etc.

    It's not realistic or anything but the characters are all really good, it's funny and it captures what it's like to be a teenager pretty well (although they all seem to have much more money than I did back then). Just got onto series 3 now where they change all the characters for the first time. Not sure if I like them as much as the old lot yet (only seen the first episode) but I like most of the new characters. Cook's hilarious and the twins are really fit.

    @DarthDimi, your coat is kind of a brownish colour...

    Yeah, Firefly is an awesome show. As it happens, the movie Serenity is my co-favourite movie of all time (the other being Blade Runner).

    My Son & I are 2/3 the way through a marathon of my second favourite series of the 21st Century, Dark Angel. Coming up fast on the series final episode directed by James Cameron. I can't wait...

    Invasion (2005)

    I could've sworn someone here recommended watching this show, but cannot find the comment to give thanks. I'm already 11 episodes in, and absolutely loving it. They took the Body Snatchers, and altered them quite a bit, but it works. The acting is superb, and as you'd expect, there's quite a lot of suspense. There are some familiar faces in the main cast, such as William Fichtner (Prison Break), Kari Matchett (24), Tyler Labine (Reaper) and Evan Peters (American Horror Story).

    As usual, the first episode is just establishing the plot and characters- but by the end of the second episode I was hooked. Unfortunately, it's one of those series that got cancelled after the first season when some great ideas were to be explored in the following season, but at least we get 22 episodes to have fun with.

    sapphire and steel....great piece of sci-fi...JL looked awsome as ever.

    I wish they made more.

    for people with small intellects, don't bother its far too cultured and well written for people who love spiderman or star wars....get a life, read a book, educate yourself and think beyond your piers or people you fawn to. Pathetic.

    I think I'm going to drop "Dominion" from my viewing schedule. I am losing interest in that show.
    Characters are uninteresting and not engaging

    Angels are portrayed as really stupid mindless freaks, whereas I would think they would be superior to us humans both physically and mentally (and morally)
    It was based on an equally shytty movie, ":Legion". So I recommend you all stay away from this show.

    You mean the kind of people with intellects so terribly small they can't understand how to behave on a forum like this? Intellects so infinitesimally small they don't realise that posts like these basically turn every person with normal social skills against you?

    Interesting.

    It doesn't take a great intellect to start a sentence with a capital or recognise the difference between its and it's, or indeed piers and peers.

    After talking about The Fugitive the other day I decided to watch the first ever episode of the original TV series. It's so...so. Reminded me a bit of Psycho with it's cheap budget and the fact it was set in Arizona. The acting's a little corny too at times. Very much a product of its time.
