Watched an episode of Reaper last night. Think it's crap.

This be the second episode I have now watched, and I don't think I'll be watching another (unless I'm high on drugs at the time).

Watched the first episode of Soprano's - Always wanted to watch it but never did.

Thought it was ok - Im kinda hoping I don't really get into it cost its gonna cost me a fooking fortune to buy the DVDs!

Just as a quick aside - It looks amazing played with a PS3 - Im really sure I cant see a significant difference between BluRay and DVDs upscaled

You should do what my sister did, join a DVD rental company eg Tescos and just get them off there to watch. Much cheaper and you can send em back when you want to etc.

Watched Exit Wounds with Steven Seagal and `token rapper turned actor`

Quite good I thought - once in a while I like watching something that is just no story action fight type film

And this was exactly that.....

Its only 9.30 now so I might stick An Innocent man with Tom Selleck on....(picked it up for a quid from the local scruff dvd market)

I really do like some censored films.. :wink:

I did too, and I loved every second. I'm probably one of the few hardcore Heroes fans that thinks this show has always been great, even season 2... :wink:

I've watched The Sopranos season 1,2,3,4,5 and I'm just about ready to start series 6. I can't get enough mob stuff just now.
Thoughts and prayers.

I have been watching Fringe, Sarah Connor season 2, Heroes season 3 and Bones season 4. Really enjoying all of these.

Also watched Kiefer Sutherland new film Mirrors the other night, it's crap and disappointing...

I love Seagal movies! I read the book Seagalogy by Vern and it entertained me so much I ordered a Seagal boxset from Amazon. So far I've seen Exit Wounds, Under Siege and Nico. Classic cheesy action with a ponytail.

Nice, but I'm wondering: what is a Heroes convention like?...

I've started watching Monk which is about a detective who suffers from OCD.

Good blend of comedy and drama. Highly recommended.

I watched The Terminator on Bravo last night. Haven't seen for a long time and quite close to being obscure. Can't believe how dated it looked after 24 years. Apart from that, it's another classic sci-fi film in the 80s.

Speaking of classics, I watched Godzilla on wednesday evening... the 1954 japanese version that is, not the dodgy US remake with Matthew Broderick!

Watched 'Doomsday' last night. Enjoyable enough mix of 'Mad Max 2' meets 'Escape from New York' by way of '28 Days Later' set in Glasgow providing you check your brain in at the door.

Also watched 'Outpost' which wasn't too bad for a straight to DVD movie. Reminded me of 'The Keep' meets 'Deathwatch' with undead Nazis.

Finally on the more quality side I have also been watching 'Private Shultz' which is still an absolute classic 27 years after it was first shown and I can remember them filming parts of it on the beach near where I used to live.
Cue the music, fade to black...
