Re: The good TV thread...

Started The Wire from the beginning tonight. Finally. Two episodes in and I'm hooked.

Re: The good TV thread...

Oh my, youre in for a treat. A rare show that lives up to the hype.

Awful control   Broken physics   Horrific AI   Weak voice work   Poor textures.

And that's just Wally on the pull.

Re: The good TV thread...

The Wire really lives up to its billing.

Re: The good TV thread...

Watched the first episode of The Blacklist last night, looks promising even if it is a bit of a Silence of the lambs rip off

It started fucking slowly but might just be improving - difficult to take a bunch of Brummies with offensive hats too seriously though.

It's Sam Neil's Northern Irish accent that's starting to get to me, he sounds more like Ian Paisley every week

is it worth sticking with? watched the first one and thought it was ok

When I play......no dog barks!!!!

Re: The good TV thread...

Couple of new programmes i'm checking out recently;

Man Down
London Irish

Both got potential.

Re: The good TV thread...

The london irish one is proper cringe, you'd find better characters if you picked them of the streets of derry or belfast the script obviously doesnt help either typically stereotyping everyone here as per usual.  Fresh meet 10 times the show.

Re: The good TV thread...

I am struggling to comprehend just how bad London Irish could be if Fresh Meat is 10 times better than it.

I just can't.

Re: The good TV thread...

Im not really a fan of fresh meet either thats how bad london irish is seriously!

Re: The good TV thread...

Jack Whitehall is a complte fuckin tool.Fact.

Re: The good TV thread...

Fresh meat is actually pretty good but not that impressed with Man Down though, not watched London Irish

Re: The good TV thread...

Recently finished series two of The Newsroom.

Better than the first series but still not much above average.

6.5 out of 10 for series 2. 

5 out of 10 for the first series.
