Ok so a bit of this slipped into footy discussion lately, and we all have to be watching something....

Lets talk about what we are watching, what others should be watching, whats better ect

ATM im watching Dexter, just finished Breaking Bad, The walking dead is good, Boardwalk empire anyone else like these?

Anything else i should get into?

Personally im a big dexter fan, alot of people going on about BB atm and season 4 of that, its not as good as the Trinity season of Dexter or Season one for that matter but good non the less. And Season 6 is doing enough for me atm, wont be ground breaking but delivers what i expect.

Only just got a hold of Community.

Finished both seasons in no time - brilliant show.

Tudors was a good series - helpful also that you can get the whole thing and not have to wait for a new season.

Heard a passing reference to Boardwalk Empire on RRR today . Anyone have info about it or where it can be accessed?

It can be accessed from the internet, dont know if its on pay even atm?

Anyway is a good show, alot of people seemed to like it more than i did,, not that i thought it was bad, just could have moved alot faster than it did imo.

Definitely set up season 2 to deliver a bit more though...

I get my stuff from the Net.

The mob behind Sopranos; Tim Van Patten et al have been behind a few of my favorite shows.

Rome - although only 2 series and it is now about 5 years old is really good. Out on DVD

Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones have come on almost back to back. both excellent. Boardwalk is into its second series.

Homeland which was recommended by George on the Outer has been my latest download and it is fantastic.

I have tried to get into the Walking Dead but it isnt in the class of the above.

I missed too much of season 2 and 3 of BB and am considering re-starting, although many say just go with it from the current series.

Downton Abbey series 2 has been the one I most look forward to each Monday (Its on UK TV on Sunday nights).

Homeland although totally different is nearly as good.

Wide Open Road is a rip off of the Surfing show (Bombora?) that screened last year.

I think The Slap is the best local product this year.

I tried reading the book but couldnt get into it, as I had no sympathy for any of the characters.

If I want to listen to peoples woes that I dont care about I only have to come to work...

How far into Walking Dead did you get? i found that the end to the first season, only episode 5o r 6 got alot better, started season 2 and it is really good imo, well alot better than the first, anyone else agree or is it just me?

Also the walking dead is very much like the movie 28 days later ect...zombie series

Its good you say that as the gore has turned the WAF way down. By all IMDB reports it does get better.

So Im on my pat malone from episode 3. I will stick with it but it will not be aired in Prime time...Its thrilling but not in the same class as the other shows.

i.e. the "walking" are comically zombie-like and there has been no explanation why yet.

I dont have Foxtel but the Andrew Fraser show "Killing Time" looks good. That starts tonight I think.Hope to hell he isnt played as anything but a leech though.

i finished all of Breaking Bad last night....Wow what a show!!!

Superb all through in my eyes....writing, acting...You name it.

Where will season 5 go?? That's the beauty of the whole show....until it happens the viewer has NO idea.

So now it's time for Season 2 of Boardwalk Empire....Season 1 was Epic.

Yes and i recommend "Wide Open Road" on ABC iview....Great programme.

" Person of Interest " is worth a look - it's a bit "out there" but if you like that sort of thing ................

And "Louie" is excellent - more of a comedy/drama than a straight comedy but very funny in parts .

Can't beat Breaking Bad, the best show on TV atm, best show since Oz and the Soprano's.

I also watch The Walking Dead - if you don't like zombie stuff, don't bother. I love it so I enjoy the show. I'm liking the way the characters are changing over time (not after being bitten).

Boardwalk Empire is great, second season is really hitting its straps.

Big fan of Dexter, though last season was terrible, terribly written and terribly pointless. Julia Styles is terrible to look at.

This season has it back on track.

Game of Thrones is great, slow in parts but had me hooked in the end and hanging out for S02.

Watched the first episode of American Horror Story, wasn't bad. I'll keep watching it just for the maid, hot damn!

Comedies.

Louie, Curb', Eastbound and Down, An Idiot Abroad, Peep Show, Tosh.0.

Reality.

The Ultimate Fighter.

Season 2 of "Boardwalk Empire" is just superb so far...a seamless story unfolds...

Yeah , great show - Steve Buscemi as "Nucky Thompson" is great and has really grown into the role - production values are second to none as well .

"Killing Time" is an Aussie crime/drama mini-series worth a look - more underworld stuff set in the last few decades - might have been shown earlier this year but I've just caught up with it .

OK been up to date with the second season of Walking dead and it started really well, dropped away badly after the first 2 episodes for a LONG time imo.... got a little better at the last episode that i saw...will keep you tuned.

DL Board walk empire now was looking for something to watch

I literally watched 8 seasons of "entourage" and dont feel bad about it haha, so many of the characters are likable but the show is pretty much just and actor or 2 his mates some parties ect girls on and off yaddayadda. OH and the best "agent" in the world (for actors) not spies.

EDIT - DEXTER IS AWESOME all i will say, it is my pet show but yeah i think season 6 is back on track...what ever the latest is

I did the same with Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad. Very easy to get sucked into both (and Entourage), although the new season of SOA seems a bit too contrived. Still very watchable though.

My tip for anyone looking for a laugh is It's Always Funny In Philadelphia. It's an absolute pissah, Danny Devito is priceless in it, really makes the show.

Yeah , IASIP is very good JJ . What an awful , opportunist bunch hey ? A train wreck really but funny as .

A big departure from "Sunny" is a new comedy called "New Girl" . Better than I thought it would be . Kinda corny but Zooey Deschanel is terrific and plays a zany type sharing a loft with 3 blokes . One of those shows you immediately like or ...........................

Haha, yes. reminds me of the Seinfeld Kramer painting quote "He is a loathsome, offensive brute. Yet I can't look away".

Actually now i think about it, one of my must watch shows of the week is Sunday Best on ABC. A collection of the best documentary's.

The series started of with the brilliant doco's The Wave and Hoops Dreams.

Last week was The Agony And Ecstasy of Phil Spector. I highly recommend it, still available to watch on ABC Iview.

Ha ha ha ! Must see if I can find that painting on the net and update my avatar !

I never get tired of Seinfeld , my favourite episode is when George is "O'Brien" in "The Limo" . Classic .

Gervais and Merchant fans need to check out 'Life's Too Short'. I watched the first 4 episodes yesterday and I love it. A lot of recycled jokes/style from the Office and Extras, but hey, whatever works. They also make a lot of fun of themselves in the process.

Warwick Davis is excellent.

Nice one. I've watched a couple of episodes and I don't mind it at all. It reminds me a little of Scrubs, quirky, feelgood comedy.

Last Sunday's "Sunday Best" was very interesting. Followed a young Indian boy who had run 48 marathons by the time he was 4. Yes that's right I said 48 (fourty eight) marathons by the age of 4 (four). On ABC IView for anyone who missed it.

For those of you who like your "Westerns" , there's a brand new series called "Hell on Wheels" set immediately after the Civil war . It centres on the building of the Trans Continental Railroad by the Union Pacific Company ............... Tough , Gritty and pulls no punches . Here's the IMDb link ..............

Re "Hell on Wheels" - I've watched 2 episodes so far and I'm getting hooked .

Good thread this one as there's been some good shows recommended by others that I've got into .

"Homeland" was one and "Life's too Short" is another . "Breaking Bad" is on my list as well !

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
