Vienna Blood. Period crime drama thing on BBC iPlayer, it was ok. Lead detective is good, but sidekick lets it down a little.

Sidekick was also in the Beeb's Dracula three parter, which again was ok for the first couple of episodes, but part 3 lets it down. Unconventional nun makes it worth a watch maybe, but Dracula himself does veer into Carry On territory at times.

Criminal Minds is back for its final season, as predictable and safe as ever.

Watched the first few episodes of Evil, with a group of church/sceptics investigating paranormal stuff. Not bad, does some good things, but also insists on dragging relationship stuff into it as these things always do. Not bad in the 'easy watching' category. Oh, Luke Cage is in it.

The BBC's Dracula. First two episodes were really good, the last one was ok, but the ending felt a bit underwhelming.

After seeing Empires top 100 films i thought i would give Dark Knight a try. Not bad but wasnt blown away. Not a huge Marvel/DC fan but heard such good things, of course Heath Ledger was superb in it.

Got a few old classics to watch, Fargo probably next

Brother popped on Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, not bad if its humour is your thing, takes a good jab at the current trend of rebooting things.
Did make me feel bloody old though as actors who I'd seen if what my mind told me wasn't all that long ago now look drastically older, Top Gear did it too by announcing the Atom was 20 years old and I remember vividly of when it came out which again my mind behaved as was just a couple of years ago.

Hmmm. Saw Parasite. Normally oscar winners mean in my language avoid the film like the plague.

It was alright, think over hyped, think i expected more due to all the praise. Its a watch once and never again film
