Goodness Gracious Me: Season 3: 3/5

BBC comedy from the 90's (1998-2000) lampooning British and Asian culture, some of it is rather dated now but it can be quite funny :D I liked some of the songs :)

The Herbs: 2.5/5

I remembered this from years ago. Rather surreal kids' series from the 60's (I think), set in a herb garden. Every character has their own little song which they ALWAYS seem to sing to introduce themselves when theyre on screen. The puppets were designed by Ivor Wood (who later went on to design The Wombles and Postman Pat).

I watched it as a kid too :) Some of them arent really herbs though (eg onions). What the heck is Pashana Bedhi (that Indian herb)?

Is this your first time watching Peep Show, Grim? I find it incredibly good replay value-wise, it just seems to get funnier the more times I watch it through :D

24: Season 5: 4/5

An exciting season but to be honest, its a stupid intelligent show (if you see what I mean) when Jack isnt kicking ass.
The amount of times CTU have to go behind someone's back or cover something up is astonishing :D
Kiefer is a good actor, but I couldnt stand the scenery chewing from the actors who played Logan and his wife :roll:

Oh yeah, forgot about this series. Downloaded the first episode a couple of weeks ago but hadn't checked it out yet. Supposedly a pretty good series, plus I liked Olyphant in the brilliant Deadwood series.

Are you kidding?! Gregory Itzin and Jean Smart were two of the best things about Day 5!

Gregory Itzin (Logan) was good but it was amazing he kept up the charade :D I dunno, it just seemed they were trying too hard at times.
I didnt understand how
the original tape was destroyed...?

Finished Dexter Season 5 last week orso. Still such a brilliant show. :)

Also downloaded the complete 1st season of Justified, so hopefully I will give that a try in the coming week. It was an extremely slowwwwwwwwwww download though.

Yeah, Tara annoyed me somewhat, especially at the start as she took things so personally and would play the race card all the time :roll:
I liked Bill, and Sookie's gran though. She reminded me of Peter Parker's Aunt May in Spiderman for some reason :D

Better get used to that - 4 seasons in and she's still the exact same, quiverring lip and all...

Tru Blood S1 (overall): 4/5

Was a good show.
In the final episodes I felt sorry for Tara though, being shat on by her mom when she needed help. I guess ex alcoholics are very strict.
Having René be the killer was pretty shocking because he was such a nice friendly guy through the season but also kinda "Is that it?" since I didnt spot many clues as to him being the killer.
I dont think Maryann (the woman who rescues Tara) is all she seems somehow...
So Tara wasnt lying when she said she saw "a woman and a pig" (when she crashed her car), maybe Maryann is a shape shifter too?

Just finished Spooks Season 10.

Seen the whole thing now, and for a British program, it is a damn good one. It's like a British 24 in some ways. Mainly cause pretty much every one dies!!!

I didn't like the ending too much as it seemed that one major part of the final two episodes was just forgotten about after Harry got away from it... it just never came up again. I HATE unanswered and seemingly ignored things like that.

but overall, it was a great show.

5/5

True Blood seasons 1, 2, 3 and most of 4 (got 4 episodes left)

love this program. It is weird, a bit of humour here and there, fantasy (and getting more fantastical as it goes on) but most of all, rude. It's like vampire porn. Awesome.

Highly enjoyable, not perfect, but worth watching.

4/5
