    I think this might have to be added to my list of TV shows to watch!
    Can't wait for this.

    Currently watching:

    Spartacus: Vengence - Really good season finale I thought if very disturbing.

    Friday Night Lights - One Tree Hill but American Football instead of basketball, not bad at all.

    Mad Men- Heard about it for ages, watched the new series on Sky Atlantic; probably the coolest show ever man those suits THOSE SUITS :sogood:

    Homeland - Best show on television currently, no question.

    True Blood - Can't really be arsed to explain as so much **** has happened recently, but I love it.
    Recorded Game of Thrones as well, tasty schedule for me there.

    Great episode of Justified, if a bit confusing. Really looking forward to the finale

    I watched the Justified episode tonight as well, quite a lot going on atm.

    You seen the promo for the next episode?

    Spoiler:
    Show
    Why would Boyd be on the run? Johnny said Quarles shot the cop, so I don't see why the cops would be after him.


    And also, how much time did Raylan have on screen in that episode? It was a bit odd.

    Yeah Judd Apatow's attached to it so should be pretty good.

    Looks a bit Sex and the City-ish though..

    Anyone watched the 1st season of House of Lies? I found the show really interesting. Had a lot of dark undertones but still managed to have some humour in it as well.

    Also loving this season of Psych. It's fast becoming my favourite TV Show.

    That was probably one of the best episodes of Community ever. Right up there with the paintball ones.

    And I love it

    I find that the best shows are the ones that take a while to get into. Community's a good example

    I've seen it multiple times now. I still hate almost all of the characters and don't find it funny. 6_6


    The black guy is just terrible. I hate him.

    I hate Tracy Jordan/Morgan, whatever, too.

    And Turk.

    Is it black guys you hate in general or just ones who are a mid 1990's stereotype :beard:

    lol. I actually found myself thinking the same about female black characters. Shirley (from Community), Rose from Lost, the fat one from Parks and Recreation, Loretta from Curb, Smash's mum from FNL. And Brianna Barksdale, but it's ****ing inevitable that there's gonna be one annoying black woman in The Wire.

    On the other hand, I like Kima Greggs and Rachel from Justified (although I think of her as "the negress" ever since that episode)

    Psych is just amazingly good. It's so funny as well.

    Anyone like Leverage?

    There's a show called 'Magic City' out now in the U.S, just wondering if anyone knows if it's going to be shown in the UK sometime soon? :beard:

    Hahaha. That's the first word that comes to my head when I think of her too. I don't even remember her character's real name.

    But yeah, there's loads of black characters I love. My problem is pretty much limited to sitcoms I think. I can't stand the 'anti-stereotypical' (which ironically seem to have become stereotypical) black guy characters that seems to be so prevalent in sitcoms.

    And I hate the somewhat stupid (and usually fat), loudmouthed and confrontational-but-with-a-big-heart black woman character.

    It is good. It is like Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire and Sporanos- a mix. It is really good.

    The intro is pretty immense.
