    What Dorkmuffing said.

    The season premiere was joyously demented.

    Dean going quasi-goth was great, especially burning his learning machine. The way he briefly fondled his toy giraffe before tossing it in was a nice touch.

    For those who don't know who Danny Dyer is...he is (apparently) the ultimate Cockney wideboy. Watch the film Human Traffic. He plays the character Moff. That's basically Danny Dyer playing himself (possibly minus the drugs...possibly).

    @ Lazarus99

    Well, considering that one of the other stars of that movie, John Simm, went on to play The Master, maybe that pick isn't so far-fetched after all...

    Agree with the people. Venture Bros. was so good...so good.

    I would also like to declare my love for the Venture Bros. It was a triumphant return.

    You guys are watching Hannibal, right? This week's was so good, even Eddie Izzard was bearable.

    Continuum got renewed for a third season, by the way. Evolving into a nice little show.

    Da Vinci's Demons is remarkably good fun, and is coming to a head for the finale. Next season has episodes from local boy Matt Fraction and Jonathan Hickman!

    The equally batshit weird (but far less coherent and cancelled after 3 aired episodes) Zero Hour has its whole season finally creep online. All the Xtian culty Nazi clock fun you can handle, and then some.

    @ Cat Vincent - I'm enjoying Hannibal a lot. I'm actually surprised how good it is. They way they did the POV shot from the girl who had prosopagnosia was really creepy.

    So, I finally watched the end of Zero Hour and was surprised at how much fun it was. Resolved the season arc nicely (considering the sub-Dan Brown plot) and set up for what could have been a fun series of Fortean mystery investigations. I also loved the villains - Amy Irving's mad cult leader was a delight, and Michael Nyqvist as namesake White Vincent is now my spirit animal.

    Wat hed the first two episodes of History Channel's Vikings. A bit hokum but fun enough. And Floki (spelling?) is easily the most interesting character. As it's a History Channel show I am surprised there's not been any evidence of aliens, but that must mean it's aliens, right?

    I've also watched most of the italian tv series , Il capo dei capi (re-named Corleone by Sky Arts). If you get chance check it out.

    Summer viewing is a little blah for me right now. Defiance and Warehouse 13 will be finishing in early July (and I'm caring more about the former than the latter). Venture Brothers is the only newish thing I'm eager to see. I tried both Sinbad and Primeval: New World. Sinbad was okay, but since I know it got cancelled it isn't exactly must-see. The first Primeval series struck me as silly ass bullshit that should've been a single episode of Doctor Who. Naill Matter really doesn't improve things. Probably the only other ep of this I'll watch is the one guest-starring Colin Ferguson.

    I'll probably check out Under the Dome later this month, but don't know if I'll stick with it.

    This weeks Venture was a delight. Great fun. I love Dean. I love Hank.

    Game of Thrones' ending left me wanting more - I suppose that was by design... but, at the same time, I think the end of the episode suffered from focusing on the less familiar characters before going to yet another rendition of "Dragon Lady is the shit".


    Next To Watch: Family Tree 'cause I love Christopher Guest

    Venture Brothers was Spanakopita! I like St. Cloud as a lesser villain.

    Under the Dome was pretty good, but I'm wondering where it'll eventually go. Also, was anyone else cringing at the bonfires and candlelight? I was thinking, hey, morons, nothing gets in or out of the Dome. This includes air.

    "The Killing" and "Copper" have restarted for the summer.

    I gave "The Killing" another try. I still don't find the detective characters interesting, but the season is also following a group of troubled street teens. That story line is interesting, and harrowing.

    I haven't watched the season opener of "Copper" yet. And . . . I really have forgotten what happened last season. I don't think that is a good sign.

    I guess I may watch more of Glastonbury on the box tonight, even though I've got to stop myself from resenting the "beautiful young people" having a good-time there. It's when the camera zooms-in on some girl on the shoulders of a bloke, and she's doing some sorta space-ritual-spiritual-arm-dance, that I groan. I'm sure the promoters have been sending the same couples back each year to do this since it's been televised. Anyway, I can get some comfort from knowing that I went there a few times in the eighties (£17 for the weekend!) and early nineties. Aye, I made a right fool of myself with the whisky-and-all. I had some wicked times there, but also some truly hideous ones. Like the time...*sigh*

    "Rock-on, Glastonbury!"

    Just finished watching the swedish series Real Humans. It is one of the best sci-fi shows I have seen on tv recently. explores similar themes to those in Caprica and Battlestar Galactica. I highly recommend it.
