Cop Land - Was worth the £3 I paid but I think it will need a second watch to see if I really like it or not. Just seemed like one of those films.

I've caught up with Almost Human, it's gotten better again because they've gone back to the main story arc of what happened to Dr McCoy .... I was kind of annoyed with the series because they just ignored that for no apparent reason

Attack on Titan, first episode. Will watch the dub when it comes to DVD, definitely looks interesting.

^ I've been trying to avoid information about it, so please don't elaborate! I will say though that if the whole thing devolves into an excuse for titan VS titan shenanigans and drops the human element of struggling to survive, I won't be happy.

I've started on season 6 of Mad Men. It took a few episodes for it to get up to speed. Good to see Don Draper and co. back.

I did another batch of episodes from Mad Men(season 6). It's a slow burn type drama, but most of the plot developments start out in the background and then come to the fore later on.

Watched Bad Grandpa

I'm gutted i watched the trailer first as that gave a lot of it away what was going to happen. Had a lot of laugh out loud moments, specially the strip club !

Always thought the grandpa was one of the best sketches in Jackass, thought the film was very good. Bit like Borat, they add a slight story to it but its full of sketches with unsuspecting people which are great. Very funny movie.

I finished all of Mad Men (season 6). It maybe took a while to get going(about 4 episodes) - but, it is still one of the best dramas that AMC produces. Good stuff. I don't know that if it's better, than season 5 - but it's very close in terms of quality.

To honour Mad Men - I have bought a "Bear Claw" pastry.

Kill List. British/arty/crime/horror film. A few moments left me spooked. The end was a bit of a stretch but generally I enjoyed it. Always know ehrn a film's had an impact when I go off googling it the next day.

I finished off season 4 of Babylon 5. Really good. A very strong ending to the season. There were some really good story developments in the season. I hear though - that it's downhill all after this in season 5. Difficult to know where they will go, as most of the plot threads have sort of been tied-up in season 4.

Yeah, season 5 isn't the best but there are still some jolly good episodes.
