Yeah, it does seemed to have wandered all over the place a bit trying to introduce two new lead characters and the overall plot seems to have been lost a bit, they're going to have a lot to wrap up in the final episode.

I've really been enjoying the new series. I didn't think it would be any good without George & Mitchell, but Hal & Tom are fantastic characters and work really well together. I think they've brought back some of the humour that was lacking in the last series.

Last night I watched the first episode of Dexter. Not what I was expecting at all, very odd. Not entirely sure if I like it or not, but will watch a couple more episodes at least.

Also watched Angels & Demons on Sunday night. I was a bit sceptical at first because I thought The Da Vinci Code was a complete let down compared to the book, but A&D wasn't too bad at all.
It's been years since I read the book, but I'm fairly convinced Robert Langden went up in the helicopter at the end instead of the Priest? Although the film adaptation made sense I guess.
I really like Ewan McGregor, but his accent didn't fit in at all :lol:

Just out of interest, what do you mean by the cliffhanger ending? I ask as I saw it the other night and thought it tied everything up as far as the main plot was concerned (unless you mean the race between the two friends at the end).

As for me, I saw The Descendants the other night at my local independent - thought it was a a slow moving but affecting drama with some great understated performances. Clooney has definitely picked some interesting films to be in over the past few years.

it's one of those after the credits scenes where the rock is in his office and the girl (undercover cop) from the second film comes in and shows him a file,in it is a picture.that's the who/why/how cliffhanger ending.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Wanted - two very good films, particularly the former!

Ah right, that explains it - I didn't see the end of credits bit. :)

I watched a load of 'The Walking Dead' episodes from season 2. The later episodes have improved it quite a bit. The series is coming to the end of this season. A few surprises in the storyline.

I then watched episode 13 from season 4 of 'Fringe'. Oh dear! Unlucky for some(see the ending of this episode).

Started on 3 new shows this week.

Alcatraz - started not bad. Am hoping for more though

Touch - Brilliant show. Keifer Sutherland plays his part exceptionally well. Looking forward to episode 2 next week. By the guy who did Heroes so there are tons of interlinking stories, but pull together nicely.

Awake - Another fantastic show. Cop living two alternate lives after a car crash. One with his son dead and wife alive, the other with the wife alive and son dead. Really enjoying this.

Going to try House of Lies later.

I watched more of 'The Good Wife' and 'The Big C'. Great to see Michael J. Fox in 'The Good wife' again. His character is interesting.

I then watched the film version of 'The Singing Detective'. It does follow the TV series pretty closely(although transporting the story to an American setting), but it loses a lot of what made the TV series so special, despite the fact that Potter wrote the script for it shortly before he died.

Ohhh... and season 4 of 'Breaking Bad' has arrived in the post. It was a German DVD import. Going to try and watch that soon. I thought that season 3 was great. Hopefully, this season will be good as well.

Whatched House of Lies earlier and liked that too. Tried ep 1 of Franklin and Bash too. Whilst I did enjoy it I just don't think I have enough time to add that series to my watch list.
