    Default Stuff possibly worth watching on TV

    We seem to be missing a thread like this


    Anyway, I enjoyed watching Kidulthood on iPlayer recently {http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0435680/}
    and now it's sequel is on iPlayer too, Adulthood {http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode...hpy/Adulthood/}


    The first had Jaime Winstone in it, daughter of Ray Winstone, she played a fab trollop in the film.
    Although it's possibly more notable for Noel Clarke who was in Doctor Who

    I'm quite surprised Kidulthood is the kind of movie you'd enjoy, horse.
    The most amazing thing ever.

    $person = new Person(); $person->getData(); if ($person->gender == female) { if( in_array("pokemon", $person->interests) ) { $me->action("hug and refuse to let go"); } } else { $me->action("run away and hide"); }

    Jaime Winstone was also in Donkey Punch. I thoroughly enjoyed that movie, and urge anyone who hasn't seen it to watch it. Jaime did a very good job at the acting in it.

    Heh, normally I'd go for Knightley in a frock but I like this kind of stuff too, I reckon I've re-watched 8 Mile more than LotR.

    Not sure why, certainly it's rawness makes for a great drama. I like how even though the girls are all seen as sl utty objects, they still have a proper role in the film. In other films they are just the hero's bit of one dimensional fluff.

    Just finished watching Adulthood, really impressed, a pity Jamie wasn't in it though. I'll look out for these two on DVD.

    Gavin Henson: The Bachelor


    Surely not to be missed.
    Channel 5's continuing high standards never cease to bring me joy.

    Twilight - just watched it, so this is somewhat more redundant than informative

    Well I thought it was OK, Bella was only slightly annoying and Edward was yum, along with all the other sparkly vampires.
    Disappointed at only one snog and the somewhat limp ending, but I've had worse dates

    I can see why pre-teen emos would gush over this, so I'll give it a few fluffy stars.


    The cartoon-esque running through the trees is just silly though, and spoils what could have been a romantic bit.

    Leverage - Absolutely awesome
    Warehouse 13 - cheesy but also awesome
    Eureka - Fantastic
    Fringe - opens your mind, even more so than X-Files ever did. Great actors.
    The Good Wife - Great show for those who like dram as well as well played legal/court room type stuff - think Practice or Boston Legal, minus the comedy.
    Merlin - Good fun, some average acting, but good to see the Magic and Dragons genre actually has some participation.
    Re-Watching Stargate - never gets old. 17 seasons all up with SG1, SGA and SGU. Love em all
    Falling Skies - just watched the first 7 episodes and I am hooked! Well done, good acting (mostly) and leaving you wondering the answers, with out the annoyance that Lost gave us.
    Supernatural - Good vs Evil fun - action, adventure, faith questioning and for the gals out there, a perve fest as I hear it.
    NCIS - Naval Investigative dram - lots of action, fantastic acting on all parts and great fun. Original is the best, but the NCIS:LA spin-off is much better than a lot of spin-offs we get.
    Burn Notice - really good fun too. Can learn a lot about being a spy

    For the comedy fans: Big Bang Theory is winzor! and so is How I Met Your Mother. Fingers crossed these two last forever!

    Fringe is quite possibly the only TV show that I have bothered watching, despite having an urge to watch a couple of others too when the adverts are on. Fringe is simply brilliant.

    Rome, Louie and Archer. All very different, and all brilliant. And all TV series, just in case you were wondering.

    Breaking Bad is definitely worth watching too. I don't think I've ever liked a cast as much as this one.

    I don't watch a lot of telly other than sport, but 3 shows that imo (and obviously its just my opinion) that need to be watched are Top Gear, Doctor Who, and The walking dead.

    Wow, this doesn't get updated much ?

    I thought this was great
    Black Death
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/bigscre...ph/Black_Death

    I wasn't expecting much, thinking it would be just another run of the mill Monastic drama, but I really enjoyed it.

    Review here:
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/f...lm-review.html

    Sean Bean as inquisitor hunts down a necromancer with the help of love lorn monk, set against an England rife with the Bubonic Plague.

    Oh, I need to find someone with Sky then, my last provider of zombies, popcorn and comfy sofas has just cancelled their subscription.

    I'm hoping they might add a few people to the group, it's looking a little sparse.
    And I'm still waiting for them to start growing food.

    Excited though, so long as they don't ruin it with too much icky.
