hi all,

have'nt seen anything to grab my tv attention for ages now.....watching the new walking dead and southland.......thats about it

the only thing i've watched lately is the penguin thing on bbc hd....which was great to watch with my daughter

everything at the moment seems pants?

likes are in the vein of 'the sopranos' (who does'nt like it) 'deadwood'...the sheild etc etc...more recently....'hell on wheels' ...'southland'..game of thrones (suprisingly...not normally my thing)..........well you get the idea..

any reccomendations?

I would add Ripper Street which was on BBC1, but unfortunately I can't find it on the iplayer at the moment. New series to come.

In fact the BBC4 sat 9pm slot is always good!

I didn't think I'd still be watching Being Human when it was announced the original cast members were leaving, but I am - It has some great dark humour. After the shock of total cast replacement settled it's as good as ever.

Agree with jkbmusic about Ripper Street, although IMHO Matthew Macfadyen (Det. Insp. Edmund Reid) is weak. However, other cast members more than make up for it, including Jerome Flynn (who I was ready to hate for the whole Robson and Jerome thing).

Also currently watching Game Of Thrones Series 2 on Sky - highly recommended. Sex, war, more sex, even more war, and dwarves.

Is he the next big Cheese of the acting world.

I agree with game of thrones, its out on DVD now, and as I don't have Sky, I'm thinking of getting it on Bluray :dunno:.

Watch out for The Americans, coming to ITV some time this year. Also Banshee, but that is only going to be on Sky.

Romanzo Criminale on Sky Arts HD is the best thing I have seen on telly since Twin Peaks. Its halfway through the second series at the moment. But I would seriously recommend getting the bluray box set of both series and catching up - theres about 12 1 hour episodes each series - its a seriously, seriously brilliant drama about a gang in 70;s Rome establishing themselves as the local kings. They take on anyone, Mafia, Camorra you name it.

Dont be put off by the subtitles though - I first thought it would be painful - but you dont even notice.
