Yep, I have seen the first two episode so far. Unfortunately it has been cancelled. :twisted:

They are great, just gotta prepare yourself for the racism, sexism and the like that very few comedians would be prepared to go to in today's politically correct world. If only Eddie Murphy would embrace his comedy potential again. :(

Just watched Dark of the Moon. Well over the top with more slow mo than standard speed, or so it seems. Still watched it all though, not the worst film I have ever seen.

It's certainly better than Revenge of the Fallen, at any rate.

Saw GoldenEye again earlier, and I still say it's the better one out of all the Brosnan Bond movies.

Watching loads of Seinfeld. Mostly series 2. The Chinese Restaurant episode is a stone cold classic.

God Elaine was tasty.

Yeah, it is probably Bosman's best Bond film. Did a very good job of bringing the films back after the cold war era and making them relevant. The film has some decent set pieces(bungee jump, tank chase, fight in the sauna, the escapes from the helicopter and train, the scene with Boris and the pen, fight on the radio telescope). Plus, unlike Quantum of Sh1t it has a coherent plot. Decent baddies as well and supporting characters. It also got turned into a decent video game - but that is another story.

Last night I caught up with more 'Grimm'. I think there is going to be a big reveal at the end of the season.

I then watched more of 'Justified'. Plus, more of 'The Good Wife'.

On the subject of Brosnan Bond films, which is the one with absolutely diabolical special effects? Iirc it may have some sort of surfing scene in it. But I honestly couldnt believe it was actually from the 90's when I saw it.

Die Another Day. It also featured an invisible car and Madonna! That is all you need to know about that film! It was released in 2002.

I watched some 'Hit and Miss'. It is the new drama on Sky. Hmm, quite unusual. About a transsexual hitwoman and her adopted family. I'll give it a watch, but it hasn't entertained me that much.

I then watched more of 'Prisoners of War'. The Israeli TV drama on which 'Homeland' was adapted from. Decent enough. With this version, you see the second prisoner's life more. It also isn't as flashy edited and the Secret Service agents lives are not as much in the programme.

I actually went to the cinema to watch that, and I thought it was pretty good at the time. I still do, but it is the weakest of the Brosnan Bonds, with awful CGI, and a plot that's been ripped from Diamonds Are Forever wholesale.
