    Nope. If you had read the thread, you'd know that this is NOT legit!

    Incorrect or outdated data is not information. It is misinformation (or disinformation). In contrast, data that does nothing else except correctly confirm or invalidate other data can be quite useful information. It is left as an exercise to determine whether that data is indeed correct information. ;)

    If only people were as interested in TV shows as they are in being "right".

    I just started watching Vera and I fell asleep during each of the first two episodes. The first episode of The Escape Artist did a better job of keeping me awake. :D

    I really enjoyed Silk, but you have to stick with it. It takes a bit to get going and the first court case is pretty lame. But it gets much better. It's also interesting watching how the Brit court system works.

    Yeah, Vera is a bit slow moving, but we like it. And we really enjoy Silk - looking forward to the third season.

    Thanks for the recommendations for Waking the Dead and Afterlife. We're watching both and enjoying them. Interesting that the medium's name is Alison (as was the case in "Medium" which was based on the real life Alison DuBois)

    I'm binge watching Red Dwarf on Amazon Instant and/or Netflix. What a howl!

    Watching episode 5 of the first season I'm wondering who that slick guy is. He sounds like an American (as does Cat.)



    I see the credits. Mind blown!
    Craig Ferguson!

    Man Sherlock really reminded me of Doctor Who tonight.

    Speaking of Doctor Who, I just watched the first episode of Coupling yesterday and loved it. Seeing a young Gina Bellman was a surprise and a treat (she played Sophie on the US TV series "Leverage"). As for the Doctor Who angle, Coupling was written by Stephen Moffat, who has penned quite a few Doctor Who episodes.

    I also watched the first episode of Blake's 7 over the weekend. Talk about a flashback to the 60's! I had seen a few episodes of the show ages ago and I forgot just how primitive the production values were. It's like watching the original Doctor Who series with William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton.

    I've also got episodes of Moone Boy and The Misfits I'm looking forward to watching. All of my regular shaws are starting back up after the holiday break so It's going to be hard to find the time to fit them in.

    Moone Boy is great. Misfits I also enjoyed, especially seasons 1,2 and the last one.

    Blakes 7 was 70's right ?

    Mad Dogs had a very weird ending, general, non specific, spoilers

    lots of comedy, some of the best since season 1, followed by horribly depressing events and an "open to interpretation" ending

    He played the villain in the first season. I don't think he's in Season 2.

    Nope, no Lennie James.

    Haven't watched it yet, but I'm sure it'll be good if the writing team is the same.
