    Justified was a little weaker this season, but went out strong and set up for an epic story next season. I plan to check out Fargo when it starts next week.

    Raylan is waaay too close to his happy ending. And I think we all know what that means in TV land.

    The annual Oh Fuck American Sports Pushing Decent Telly Off The Schedule, Fuck Them Right Up The Arse time is upon us. No Person for 2 sodding weeks...
    Oh, and they pushed The Good Wife back a week for a country music award ceremony.

    RE: Justified
    There's a reason that they close every season with some variation of that 'You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive' song. I'll be very surprised if Raylan gets to spend any time watching his baby girl grow up by the end of the series.

    I'm going to watch Fargo later.

    RE Person of Interest:

    I think it would be cool if The Machine called up everybody whose ass was saved by the team over the last three seasons and directed them to do seemingly random things to save Our Heroes asses.

    "Drive your car to 123rd and 5th and dump a barrel of chicken fat in front of the service entrance."
    "Leave $300 in bills in the southernmost drain spout of 231 Park Avenue."

    I was thinking it would be cool if The Machine saved people itself by controlling streetlights, bank alarms, and other automated functions around the city

    The first episode of Fargo was surprisingly excellent.

    @StefanJ: been hoping they do that... it would tie in nicely to my insistence the show is a reboot of The Shadow by bringing in the network of people they saved.

    Watching Fargo. They really lined up a great cast for this one.

    Thornton's character is a real diabolical trickster.

    It would be interesting to find out how true-to-life the story is.

    OH CRIPES two more bodies.

    For gobs sake, how can this be a series? At this rate they're going to depopulate the midwest.

    I wonder how COSMOS is doing, ratings wise.

    I hope it is doing well.

    I hope it makes a difference.

    Getting acquainted with Orange is the New Black, in anticipation of season 2. Soo glad I checked it out - it's just a wealth of interesting, rounded characters that you want to learn more about. It's nicely nuanced, too - even the most unlikeable characters have a certain pathos and humanity about them, which saves them from being out-and-out monsters. It also features Kate Mulgrew, on a quest to capture a magical chicken...

    I was watching the first episode of Salem. but was knackered and fell asleep. I'll probably try again later, as I couldn't make my mind up about what I saw. Could - being the operative word - be interesting.

    Did anyone watch all of Treme? Should I bother? I watched some of the first season a few years back.

    Waiting for Fargo and Orphan Black to start in the UK. Still got to watch the full series of Peaky Blinders.

    Treme is an amazing show but be warned, it's a very hard show to watch in that it's extremely demanding on the viewer. It's something that requires a dedicated focus and lots of memory from episode to episode, due to the very distant story lines and the little overlap between them.

    That being said, it's quite rewarding if you can get into it. It functions on the same level as Mad Men, The Wire and the Sopranos, just with a different goal than those shows had.

    I've also found your enjoyment of Treme also hinges a bit on your attitude towards food and music. Both are abundantly present in the series.

    Late-in-the-game but just finished Hannibal's first season. I wasn't very gentle with the first part of it, but it did pick up after the fifth episode or so. Didn't blow my mind, but I'm happy I remembered my own rule of "a series can and often will suck for the first half of the first season". Interested to see where it will go from there.
