I have been enjoying W1A, but it's very close to disappearing up it's own backside at times.

...although that could be the point. :P

I know that's an element of it, but it doesn't have to be quite so bloody smug about it

True Detective has been good so far.

I think there are only two episodes left.

It's hard going, not because of the story line but the 2 main characters are very intense. I am about 1/2 way through and going to keep on with it.

How could I? You can't move for someone wittering on about it. Wonderfully made no doubt, but really not up my street at all. Sometimes I think I'm the only person on Earth who doesn't like it!

 

Although - top tip - Sky Atlantic are showing the first episode at 2am on Sunday Night/Monday Morning at the same time as the US. Worth setting the Sky+ if you are one of those impatient types.

The books are better as they allow more depth rather than the producers trying to hide some of the inevitable gaps with extra nudity.  There's one hell of a lot missed from the books to TV but then that's the nature of the medium.  Good but, well, not as good as the books.

I sort of gave up after 5 books. I mean to go back one day to finish the series but after a great start I felt it sort of lost it's way and was being dragged out for the sake of it. No idea how many books there are in the series or if they have finally reached a conclusion yet.

I've never watched or even been remotely interesting in watching either Game of Thrones or Breaking Bad. Not one for bandwagons me, nor can I be bothered to do catch up box-set stuff anymore.

 

I am looking forward to Monday though, 7.30pm BBC2, Great British Menu is back. I think it's a lot better than Masterchef - which I don't watch - because it's 'proper' chefs at the top of their game competing in a wholly uncomplicated format. Nice.


On Odsal Top baht 'at.

Game of Thrones is great.

 

The Trip is back tonight as well, really enjoyed the last series.


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Game of Thrones is great.  I have read every book.  They are books about people and political intrigue rather than dragons and goblins.

 

I first saw it in the US part way through series 2.  A group of us saw it half way through an episode, saw it through and found out what the programme was to see the rest.

 

That said, it is starting to feel a little like a soap opera.

It is intense. I also find some of the dialogue is hard to follow, especially with Matthew McConaughey.

Has anyone watched 15 to 1 with Sandi Toksvig presenting. I usually like Sandi but her performance is slow, laboured and littered with errors in pronunciation and understanding on her part. Frankly, I find it difficult to watch!

I liked the original 15 to 1 and I like Sandi, but this revival is utterly dreadful. It's slow and needlesly drawn out over an hour Wasn't the original only half an hour? 45 mins max surely.
