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.

I agree. I don't want to talk about it though in case people haven't seen it yet. Very impressed with the whole series.

Stranger things was great, when I saw the Winona Ryder was it in I was a bit iffy but she was fantastic.  If you are a fan of sci-fi you will catch on pretty quick as to whats going on but have a stro

Half way through Godless the new Netflix "Western" mini series. Thought after the first few episodes that it might rival Deadwood but after episode 3 I don't think so. That being said well w


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.

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.

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.

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 !

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team
