I'm making my way through The Sopranos. I'd never seen it before and I'm enjoying it a lot. Am only up to season two so far. Everyone knows that it's great TV with quality writing and drama, but there's lots of humour in it too. Each episode usually has a couple of laugh out loud zingers.

Lucky you, are you in for a treat. Season 3 in particular is possibly some of the best television ever made.

Me, loving Fargo at the minute. Very, very good, and shaping up to be better than the first.

Got sucked into watching an American Thanksgiving classic "Gone with the Wind", for the umpteenth time with my mom... And I love that my mom (and I) both want to slap Scarlett... Too long, but some great scenes...
Also saw "The Desk Set". a 1957 classic with Spencer Tracy & Katherine Hepburn last night - what a fun film...

HBO's The Knick. Definitely one of the best on TV. What a glimpse into the past. How did anyone survive those surgeries?

I'm secure enough in my masculinity to admit that I'm enjoying The Great British Baking Show, streaming on Netflix.

I hear that ABC in the US is doing a 4-installment version of this "nice reality show" for the holiday season.

Other than that, it's streaming past seasons of New Girl, The Big Bang Theory, Jeopardy and CBS's Sunday Morning.

Also, just saw Spotlight with Michael Keaton and Mark Ruffalo. Absolutely brilliant!

I binge watched all of Jessica Jones in two nights. Awesome!

Finished season 3 of Arrow and season 1 of The Flash. I'm very curious to see what season 4 of Arrow will be like, given how S3 ended.

Currently trying to catch up with Agents of SHIELD.

Just seen Rush by Ron Howard, about Nikki Lauda and James Hunt and their ferocious rivalry during 1976 F1 championship.
Tbh, I thought I'll find it boring, like I do F1 itself, but actually it was immensely entertaining. Great movie about people, not cars.

I just finally caved in and signed up for Netflix.
It's only been a month, but I've noticed my time reading books has gone down significantly.

However I have finally been able to see Orange is the New Black, which came highly recommended. Now I'm into Sons of Anarchy which seems to make me want to buy a Harley and get an "Old Lady".

Someone mentioned Homeland. Meh. I gave up on it after the first season. Sadly they are now filming in Berlin, so it now has a bit more interest factor for me... yet I'm not certain that I wish to invest the time.

Forest man a Short Documentary. An Indian man has been planting a forest on a waste land in India for 40 years or so. The forest is now larger than central park. Kind of uplifting all things considering.

oket, MASH4077 is undoubtedly the best of them all Clown emoticon out of ANY competition

recently watched both original UK and American versions of the House of Cards, great both

Dexter was (in competition branch) for a long time nr 1 till Breaking bad arrived

Ray Donovan is very good

for those ones who like a lot of action and not too much care about 200 million $ special effects, start with Banshee

if you can get hold of UK series like ALLO ALLO, ONLY FOOLD AND HORSES, BLACK ADDER (Goes Forth) ... do not miss, really good ones

Queer as Folk for shaking up the prude ones

of course, Big Bang Theory Nerd emoticon

if I remember something new, will report...

recently watched kinda brilliant TV series called MISFITS (UK version)

DISCLAIMER 1: one of the main characters is leaving series after 2. season and nothing was the same any more (https://youtu.be/ArHuYhYQ5ik)

DISCLAIMER 2: this series is not for prude or faint of heart, is pretty much "slap in your face"

DISCLAIMER 3: production is independent, so do not expect $500.000.000,00 CIG effects, focus on the story and acting

definitely worth it

Recently discovered "Time Team", a BBC archeological production that started about 1994. I must've watched about 7 shows now, and as the series lasted about 11 years, should keep me busy for a while... I think I have a mild crush on Carenza Lewis...

The Misfits is brilliant. It was a shame the Irish lad left but the series rallied in the last season.

I just finished season 3 of Arrow, and am about to start watching The Flash. The Arrow was a fun show. I'm hoping the Flash is similar.

Jessica Jones was great. Agents of shield didn't hold my interest. I might give it another chance.

I just started watching a show called Нюхач. It's a police show from the Ukraine, but everyone's speaking Russian, so you don't have to speak Ukrainian to follow it. The English translation is "the Sniffer," and the main character has a pretty good sense of smell. While it's not a documentary by any stretch of the imagination, it does provide a window into that part of the world that we don't get from the news.
