  1. Finally got round to watching Quarry and loved it - the premise the setting the style and the characters just won me over - finished it in two sittings only to find out after it's been cancelled... so well shit.
  2. Finally got round to watching it, found it a tad slow at the start but after episode 4 it really hit it's stride and kept me hooked - I liked the somewhat slow nature of reveals, very few 'dun dun dun' moments just a build up and passive acknowledgement with quite often it being things that the audience are expected to already have worked out/know but is new information to the characters which I always liked. I guessed Mikkel was going to be Jonas' dad by the second episode but that's mostly because the moment time travel enters a story my mind goes into overtime to figure out how someone is going to end up banging a relative. One thing did bother me all the way though - did we ever find out why Mikkel/Michael killed himself? When talking about it a friend and I thought of the idea that maybe there was no reason and that it was a horrible side effect of the time loop/self fulfilling prophecy in that Mikkel hanged himself because he knows Michael hangs himself but we both thought that seemed far too miserable and hoped there was some nugget of information that we missed.

    Video Games: It's On Like Donkey Kong

    Finished Night in the Woods, was a good little game with a good story took me about ten hours to finish though probably could have done it in a couple less if you rush a bit more, will probably go back and replay it in a couple of days to try out the other storylines/find all the side stuff. That or back to Warhammer Total War II cause murder mummy dlc looks pretty fun.

    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    I've enjoyed Scoot McNairy in everything I've seen him in so with Ali also in and Saulnier directing my hopes are starting to rise, but then I remember what season 2 did to my hopes and I get scared again.

    Trailer Thread IV

    It's been out on BBC iPlayer since the 6th
  6. The older teenagers on Halloween also call him Zombie boy before he gets knocked to the ground and goes to the Upside Down.

    The Deuce

    CC basically extorting the pornographers was a tense scene, though I do feel that if any of the pimps consistently try and pull something like that then porn guy's (was he the skinny guy from Numbers?) mob connections might spell trouble.

    The Deuce

    Several seasons I'm pretty sure, read that had up to 3 planned somewhere

    Peaky Blinders Season 3 - Spoilers

    Same as above I'm glad it looks to be getting back to gangster on gangster action - season 3 wasn't dreadful but the whole Russian Royalist and Paedo Priest plot really did nothing for me.

    The Deuce

    CC is definitely the most interesting character so far, wonder how dark it's going to get with him. Karate Kid kept throwing me off though
  11. Finally got round to watching season 2, it's not my favourite show and I'd hesitate to call it anything higher than simply good but it keeps my attention and adapts the novels fairly well. Though I do find it funny that coming from a series of novels all about taking other people's real life achievements and awarding them to Uhtred the tv show even takes the achievements of other fictional characters in the story and lets Uhtred hog all the glory.
  12. There's always a few nice ones either of the warrior priest variety or humble and genuinely faithful type but Cornwell is fond of his horribly corrupt bishops, confessors, abbots and preachers. I think Sansum from the Warlord Chronicles is fittingly all of those and some point or another and as such is clearly the worst of the bunch.

    ‘Outlaw King’: Robert The Bruce Scottish Epic

    The only way I can see myself enjoying this is if they go with the insane embellished version and end on Douglas lobbing Robert's heart at the Moors.
  14. I'm starting to feel slightly vindicated as someone's who's spent the last couple seasons arguing in favour of Chuck and moreso Hamlin to my friends. Hamlin's easy to dislike at first cause he's a bit smarmy, up himself and had a hand up through nepotism but he's also hard working, loyal, seems to give everyone a fair shake and acts way more rationally than anyone else on the show. His put down of Jimmy this last episode has been one of my favourite moments of the season.
