I've started to watch Sherlock? I'm only on the first episode of the third season but

Spoiler for spoils:
The **** is this bull**** going on all of a sudden? Some terrible writing going on during a half decent show. They decide to make him fake his death and the explanation is the biggest cop out I've ever seen? "It was all a set up, we shut down a whole street in London and a gaggle of homeless people rolled a giant balloon out and then my brother called off the snipers and I faked my death in front of you" DOESN'T MAKE ANY ****ING SENSE. If he could call off the sniper at any time then what the **** was the point in staging a suicide? Minor celebrity fakes his own death and no less than 100 people help him do it but somehow that doesn't leak out to the public? Literally everyone on the ****ing show with a named character knows about the fake attempt except Watson? To what ****ing end? What does that achieve? The entire plotline was just an excuse to do something shocking that added nothing to the storyline whatsoever.

Also, they had better not have actually killed the best character on this ****ing program. Worse, they'd better not bring him back as some kind of apparition or phantom or hallucination or dream sequence.

I think I have it left in me to get jerked around maybe once more and then I'm bailing. This is teetering on House / Dexter / Hannibal / Heroes level writing combustion.

Red Dwarf XI

I just started this but I enjoyed the first episode. It really goes out of its way to stay faithful to the older episodes in terms of setup, delivery, and format. Hell, it even looks like it was filmed on the budget of the old shows, or at least Series 7 and 8 when they began to incorporate more CGI.

Belter of a documentary on C4 right now. Walking The Americas.

Vowels you would like it, I'll try to find you a link. It's some English guy walking from Mexico to Colombia.

The Americas = best place on Earth imo. For this stuff anyway.

Criminal Minds

Been watching this for the past week and I've been hooked since the first episode. It's everything I love regarding crime and it's done so well and the cast is phenomenal.

Yeah, I thought the first two seasons were great, but then it fell off in the third season and I lost interest.

Told ya!

Has anyone any thoughts on the new 24? I kind of wonder how it's going to fare without either Jack or Chloe, a whole new cast? I mean, I'll watch, but I don't feel it's going to be the same... I hope I'm wrong of course.

Also, has anyone watched The Bastard Executioner? Done by Kurt Sutter, who brought you Sons of Anarchy of course. Cancelled already but it looks very good, gritty stuff.

I'm glad Jack and Chloe are gone. I'm more interested in it now that there is a whole new cast. I barely watched the little return thing they had like a year or two ago.

The second episode, "Samsara", is more of a return to form, it actually did that bit from "Balance of Power" where the scene transformed from flashback to present day. It kind of feels like a "Greatest Hits" but of new material if that makes sense, like each new episode reminded me of older episodes but changed in such a way as to still sort of be a new idea. Not the best, but definitely on par with Series X and miles better than Series VIII and that godawful Back to Earth mini-series.



Anyways, I've spent the last two days binging the entirety of The Ricky Gervais Show and holy shit it may be one of the funniest things I've watched/listened to in awhile. Karl Pilkington is my favorite kind of idiot because he's always willing to share his opinion with complete sincerity regardless of how retarded or poorly worded it is, and defend it. His bit on the "ultimate animal" having the body of an armadillo (for protection), the head of an owl (because people like owls), and the slime of a snail or slug (so people can't kick it over), had me in stitches I was laughing so hard.

I don't remember anyone mentioning it actually. I started watching it because I saw it on Netflix and it looked interesting.

Dude, exactly the same and exactly the same time frame (just discovered it in the last two days). I love how the other dude just kind of laughs at how dumb Karl is, but Ricky seems to have a genuine appreciation for Karl's unintentional comic genius.
