Watched the whole series of True Detective on a hungover Saturday. Every episode back to back.
Incredible acting / cinematography / writing but the end fell a bit flat for me after so much build up.
I watched the first episode of The Walking Dead last night. Hugely disappointing - it was an hour spent re-hashing the opening sequence of 28 Days Later. By the end of the episode, I had pretty much lost interest. Can't really see it getting any better.
I'd love to see a TV series version of World War Z. I think the book lends itself well to the TV format, certainly a lot better than it did on the silver screen - apart from a few excellent scenes, the Brad Pitt film was an absolute mess and turned a gem of a book into a high-budget B-movie.
World War Z was an absolute joke of a film. The Honest Trailer of it is pretty much spot on. Although they're kind of right in all of the ones they piss-take, inc TWD.
Just started watching Boardwalk Empire - first two episodes were really good. Buscemi is great in it - he's done his fair share of dud roles in his career, so I wasn't expecting a whole lot from a series with him in the lead, but I've been pleasantly surprised. I'm hooked in so far - TWD may have to wait a bit!

Halfway through Season 3 of The Wire. Cannot believe its taken this long for me to notice this show.
As shows go, right in my top 5 as best ever.
I'm near the end of season two of Boardwalk Empire. Absolutely love the show - it has everything going for it.. it's well scripted, beautifully shot and brilliantly acted, by Buscemi & Michael Shannon in particular (Shannon's acting is sublime).
Above all though, it is expertly paced with a deft hand which allows for strong character developments within the storylines. By far, the best TV show I have seen in a long while.
''Orange is the new Black'' is having me in stitches.............I'm trying hard not to finish off Season 1 so quickly as Season 2 has only just started.
