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Incorrect or outdated data is not information.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.

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.)

Guess who?


I see the credits. Mind blown!
Spoiler:
Craig Ferguson!

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

Spoiler:
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.

'Suspects'

First episode is out.

http://www.channel5.com/shows/suspects


Quote:
Shot in the style of a fly on-the-wall documentary, Suspects is unscripted, with the cast devising their own dialogue based on a detailed plot description.

Set in London, each episode is a self-contained story, starting with a news report, then following the team of three detectives as they investigate the circumstances the crime. The cases themselves are hard-hitting with contemporary themes, such as the search for a soldier with PTSD, a murder that has been made to look like an assisted suicide and the gang rape of a young teenager.

Each detective has their own distinctive style of working. The team leader, DI Martha Bellamy, maintains an overview but also sits in and conducts the questioning of suspects. Her team know that she is behind the mall the way and will fiercely defend them when necessary.

DS Jack Weston is a man of action whose charm belies an unerring gut-instinct. He automatically senses if a suspect is lying or concealing their emotions and is expert at getting to the root cause.

DC Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Steele A****ey has a keen eye for detail. She will patiently study CCTV and check the records for past offenders. Passionate yet level-headed, she believes that the police can make a real difference.

Nope, no Lennie James.

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

WPC 56 has also returned, that's a solid show.

New one, Suspects, looks good.

First ep of Line of Duty was very good.

The dialog in Suspects was disjointed and amateurish. I have no problem believing it was not scripted. Won't be watching the rest of the episodes.

'The Smoke'

Quote:
This eight-part series follows the high-adrenaline adventures of White Watch, a team of London firefighters. At the heart of the story is a family of firemen and women who, no matter what, always have each other to fall back on. But being a hero isn't easy, especially in a world that regularly disregards them, and it certainly doesn't pay. Many crew members are forced to hold down other jobs on the side, taking some of them into the city’s after dark world. The stakes are high but, in "The Smoke," it's the very lives and souls of the White Watch crew that are at risk.
Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galatica) stars.

One I've been enjoying recently is the anthology series Inside No. 9, written by and starring two of the League of Gentlemen. Three episodes so far and they have all been excellent, in fact getting better each week. Very dark and twisted but if that's your thing then I suggest you seek it out.

New season of Jonathan Creek starts this Friday. There have been a couple of specials in the last few years but this is the first new season since 2004. Unfortunately there's only going to be 3 episodes

'The Widower'

The Widower is a three-part drama from ITV Studios based on the crimes of convicted murderer, Malcolm Webster. It tells how, over a thirteen year period, a seemingly mild‐mannered male nurse, Malcolm Webster, played by Reece Shearsmith set about poisoning and murdering his first wife, attempting to do the same to his second wife and moving on to a further scheme to deceive his third fiancée.
