    Been watching Penny Dreadful. The first season was great, i love the way they intertwined Bram Stoker's Dracula and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein with a bit of Jack the Ripper and even Dorian Gray. It's like a high quality Hammer House of Horror series. Dracula is a total badass with absolutely no human characteristics at all, so its a different take on him compared to the book. Love it.

    You should check out the 1973 movie they made of Westworld, starring Yul Brynner as the Gunslinger. One of the better old sci fi movies. It's probably a bit dated now, but it was a fun watch as a kid.

    They made a sequel, Futureworld in 1976. But apparently its really shit. Would not recommend.

    Well I just finished all three seasons of Penny Dreadful. I've never felt so gutted that a series has ended this much before, they could have easily done another one as Dr Jekyll was just introduced, but not Mr Hyde. Sublime acting all the way through, but what else do you expect from quality British TV ? Eva Green is a fantastic actress, and all the others were brilliant as well especially Timothy Dalton. Highly recommend ... 9/10.

    Been re-watching all the Black Adder episodes again, only 6 per season over 4 seasons. If BlackAdder isn't the greatest arsehole in TV history, then please recommend someone else who is greater lol. Rowan Atkinson, Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry, Tony Robinson etc ... what could be better ?

    I'm sure I saw Westworld at the cinema during the school holidays as a kid too. The thing I remember about Yul Brynner was his anti smoking ad on TV during the early 1980s.

    The catchphrase was "Whatever you do - don't smoke..."

    Watched the first 5 minutes of 'The Bridge' last night. Don't put yourself through it.

    What is with these annoying, mentally ill, wooden female actors in B-grade tv these days?

    For a weird watch that I ended up loving was an exclusive on Netflix.

    Dirk Gently's holistic detective agency.

    Completely bonkers in a good way.
