Have also been re-watching X-Files recently. Can't help but chuckle at a lot of it. I was really into it when I was 8 or so years old and it first started on the air. Then eventually stopped watching it over the years and never actually watched the final seasons. Going back to the first season it's so much cheesier than I remember as a kid! :lol: Also never realised Seth Greene had made an appearance until now. Have been watching a lot of Skins too.

I love it mate. Reckon there needs to be more programs like this. I'm surprised how many stars are actually in this. You have Bryan chanson and Aaron Paul then the likes of jack black ryan Reynolds the list is massive.

I watched the first episodes of Outlander.

 

Aside from the fact it's actually a female oriented show and from the unbearable monologues of the lead character, I enjoyed it a bit. 

 

5,5/10

 

I was wondering about that show actually. At first when I saw the title I thought it was somehow a tv version of that viking sci-fi/time travel film Outlander...but seems not. Wasn't the best film ever but wouldn't have minded having something like that to watch week to week. I tried looking at the description of this Outlander show on wikipedia...is it based on like a romance novel or something or is it some decent legit historical/sci-fi?

Yeah it really is surprising and there really should be more series like it or as creative anyway. Now there seems so many cop dramas that have the same story over and over and copy one another week in and week out but there's very little as unique or groundbreaking as X-Files was in the 90s. It's too bad. Still a lot of fun to re-watch though.

Apparently it's based on a romance novel series. It is pretty much an historical drama (mixed at 50%-50% with "how I left my husband and knew my scottish love") about things in Scotland before the third jacobite rising. So far the sci-fi element it's just the macguffin needed to put an outsider view making remarks in it and to insert a motivation regarding the lead character.

 

As I've said, her monologues are recurrent during the episodes and are utter-dull. Despite of its simplicity I've enjoyed the series as much (if not a bit more) as Vikings, which I don't find too impressive anyways.

Ah ok, thanks for the info, historical aspect sounds like it could be interesting anyway. Maybe I'll give an episode a try while waiting for some other series to start up again.

 

Just noticed your sig, by the way, nice :D  Mandzukic working out well for you guys so far?

Completely agree. There has been little time bits on a new series of it, which I'd like to see made. Also chris carter the creator is making a series called area 51 for AMC which sounds quite promising. We will see.

Finally, both Person of Interest and Blacklist are back! Just watched the latest episodes, it's great. Person of Interest is the best show on TV currently for me, and it's getting better and better.

 

Also, I'm keeping an eye on Forever as well, quite an entertaining show.

Recently just watched Luther as I did not catch it on the BBC a few years ago. Brilliant. 

 

Big fan of Ray Donovan, that's the show that's catching my attention at the moment. Great show. 

 

Banshee and Hannibal are also very good.

I am not really a great lover of the series's they got on these days. Plus i'm too preoccupied with stuff most of the time to follow season after season of a series.  But because I am a big batman fan, this series that is starting today in our country has really caught my attention. Hope it does justice to the legend that is batman.

Been watching the new episodes of South Park, and they're not really anything to write home about. Also just watched second ep of Gotham, which I'm enjoying. Finished the first season of Black Sails as well which I thought was decent for what it was. Looking for something else to get stuck into now.

Thanks for reminding me Nudge.. Had my mate Gary down this way today and he says it's one of the shows he is watching and I said I would give it a look but it slipped my mind until I saw this..

Resurrection started again apparently, thought the 1st season was decent so I'll be carrying on with the 2nd season. Will probably start Vikings & Orange Is The New Black soon as well.

Has anyone checked out Gomorrah yet? I watched the pilot, but I'm still undecided if I want to watch it any further.

Just watched the first episode of Constantine, Thought it was being a bit over acted in the early part but it grew on me as it went on and the special effects are pretty decent which helps smooth over some of the smaller cracks.. not bad

Caught up with AHS: Freak Show. Really digging the hell out of it so far. I need to go back and watch Asylum and Coven, for some reason I never watched either despite the fact that I own the first season DVD. :huh:

Popcorn time is decent. I prefer downloading everything, much more reliable.
