I make sure im watching as it is broadcast. It sure was better but I wont drop any spoilers. Questions answered and for me the expected happened but doesnt make it a bad thing.

Walking Dead wasnt bad this week, but the past few seasons its been the same, starts off okay, very average middle and the second you think 'i may give up on this....' they then finish every season really well.

Watched Celebrity Juice last night, very very funny. I didnt watch it for ages as i thought i would hate it, couldnt stand the guests, how wrong i was, just a very funny show

John Carpenter's Into the Mouth of Madness - having recently watched the other 2 films in his apocalypse trilogy, I can confirm that this is the weakest of the three by some considerable distance.

Well i've loved the skiing on the Winter Olympics and some of those races, the one where they all kinda crashed at the end and all fell across the line at the same time was superb.

BUT

Curling. Oh my god, theres me thinking Cricket was the worst thing invented. Nope its Curling. Just like a boring game of Bowls, just terrible, seeing people shout like anything to their teammates with their little sticks, urrrrrgh no no no.

Unlike cricket, it doesn't take a week to play, so its the better sport. And I like a bit of bowls, used to play a lot as a kid as there was a green beside our school.

Watched two films on sky for a change - hardly ever flick through and stay on one film

But the 6th Sense was just starting , enjoyed it even knowing the twist , it was good to watch knowing the end already .

Also flicked over when it finished and Master and Commander was about to start , it was quite good , some great battle scenes , a decent storyline and the storm scene looked amazing , like a crossing from Heysham to Douglas ! :)

The Sixth Sense is fun even on subsequent viewings as you look to see how it worked!

I watched Watchmen last night, still love that movie. Rorshach is just brilliant.

So good I went to see it twice :D

Last night was an old video nasty, Devil Hunter (aka El Canibal). Loads of blood (the old red paint variety) and screaming (LOUD) and nudity (of both genders!) and dodgy dubbing (they forgot to do it for one bit, so everyone's speaking Spanish for two minutes). Enjoyed it, yes I did.

T2 on bluray. Great film but still not as good as the original IMO

Captain Scarlet. Furk me thats one violent show. And some wonderfully unsubtle racial stereotypes. The sixties were a different world...
