    I'm half way through the second season and I like the one shot episodes more then the story line episodes.

    it's a good concept and I'm enjoying these horror TV shows. good change of pace.

    I loved it until the last three eps. The mysteries were good, the atmosphere was good, the asylum sets were fantastic, the characters were good and many were surprisingly three-dimensional for a horror series. Hopefully you like the ending more than I did.

    has anyone seen 'true detective'?

    stars matthew mcconaughey and woody harrelson. 8 parter crime show, apparently every season the cast gets replaced. hearing goods things about this, only 2 episodes have aired and people are raving.

    I've seen both episodes.

    I love it.

    It's very slow and character driven, which is right up my alley.

    Some people won't like it.

    Flick on to One hd at 10:30pm and watch a tv show called 'Sleeper Cell'. Absolutely hooked into it. Michael Ealy's performance is fantastic. Lot of twists and drama.

    You asked this months ago but its an excellent show but it is a bit slow at first. It is beautifully shot though. I mean the show has had a huge influence upon fashion and tastes so it must be doing something right.

    I have been rewatching the shield which is pretty fantastic but I have caught up with True Detective and again its a bit slow and character driven but the acting is top notch and its very interesting.

    Very... slow. But it just started.

    McConaughey's character is a little overbearing but Harrelson's offsets it a bit.

    Characters have been setup, time for some major story progress this week.

    The creator has stated that the show is mainly a character study and everything else takes a back seat. I don't see it deviating from the formula of the first three episodes.

    Watched the first episodes of the new series of 24, Walking Dead and Boardwalk Empire.
    WD and BE are still great.
    24 still frustrates the hell out of me at times, but it is a decent way to spend an hour.

    Watched the first few episodes of The Returned, just an even more boring version of resurrection.

    Binge-watched Spartacus on Netflix. Questionable acting, cheesy dialogue, lots of Sex and violence...... loved it.

    Spartacus is a great series for those very reasons.
