Argh...  too many things to watch, not enough time!

 

So far, the programmes outstanding are:

4 episodes of American Horror Story

7 episodes of Criminal Minds, mind you this is one mainly for the wife

3 episodes of Dracula

3 episodes of Grimm

The entire first season of Hannibal

5 episodes of Ray Donovan

5 episodes of Sleepy Hollow

4 episodes of The Walking Dead

 

And that doesn't include the dross the wife watches that's building up to be watched.  It's at the stage now that it'll take a couple of weeks off to catch up without becoming a complete couch potato.

After the relentless eat/sleep/league/repeat since the RWC started, the last few days has seen me looking to the TV schedules and wondering why there's nothing I want to watch.

Sorted.

That's fair enough, the problem is that the wife doesn't like watching zombie stuff before bed and on many nights it's gone 9-10pm by the time we've tea out the way and settled down enough to watch telly.  That leaves the weekends and too many times lately we've been off doing things on the weekend.

And that's the only one I watch out of your list!

 

Instead of being over-faced, just simply decide what you actually want to watch, it's remarkably easy to drop things you weren't that bothered with anyway (you just watched it cos you wtched it).

 

I learnt that the hard way after perservering with Heroes. :dry:

That Ruth Goodman scares the bejesus out of me.

 

She looks 900 years old.

 

You know the really scary thing? According to Wikipedia she is a year younger than me!

Sounds like she's been moisturising then. I assumed she was older.

Nigel Lawson is on QT. He looks like Mrs Doubtfire.

I also suspect he dyes his hair.

Quite enjoyed Coxy's Science of Dr Who last night.

Very enjoyable. As I posted elsewhere, the new series of the excellent programme 'The Infinite Monkey Cage', co-hosted by Dr Brian Cox, starts this afternoon on Radio 4.

Has anyone else been watching Crackanory (like Jackanory, only for adults) on Dave? I'm really enjoying it, think it's because I was a Jackanory fan as a kid.

I've seen the occasional episode, but I keep missing it. Mind you, it's on Dave, so I'm sure it'll be repeated soon.

 

The ones I've seen have been fun, and I wasn't a great fan of Jackanory as a kid.

Anybody else watch Gogglebox? I think it's great.

 

Yes! Probably the funniest show on tv at the moment. Not a fan of them shoe-horning films in the last couple of episodes which suggests they may have gone on a week or two too long this series.

 

What is good is it's such a simple idea that shouldn't work (in fact it sounds like it was pitched by Alan Partridge), but it really does. Interesting window on the mood of verious sections of British society at any one time, even if you don't always agree.

Watched the new series on gardening which featured topiary and roof gardens: the one on the Birmingham library was amazing. As for the guy who shapes bushes, the herd of elephants that he'd done for a neighbour is quite a talking point and amusing for anyone passing by.
