Just thought I'd pop in to say hi. Not been around much, but also haven't really had much to say either.
While I'm here I'll talk a little bit about TV. :)
I watched and loved Game of Thrones. I can't believe we have to wait until next year for S2 to air! I'm going to read the first book to help make the wait more bearable, but won't be reading any more until after S2 airs. This show is just too good to watch spoiled!
I've watched and enjoyed the first two eps of True Blood S4. I've seen mixed reviews of the show here on LJ, but I'm still loving it so far. I tend to go into TB without any expectations at all and just enjoy the show for what it is - rollicking good fun! It definitely isn't a show to be taken seriously, but that's the kind of TV I need to see from time to time - and I make no apologies for that. It's cracktastically delicious and I love it! It also has an extremely pretty cast which doesn't hurt. *g*
I've also been enjoying the second season of the BBC drama Luther. I still have last night's final ep to watch, but I think this season has been even better than the first. It's violent and disturbing on so many levels (my mum refused to watch any more after last week's ep), but also highly compelling TV. Love it!
I also loved another BBC drama series Case Histories, which starred the wonderful (and sexy) Jason Isaacs as private detective Jackson Brodie. I've read and enjoyed the books (by Kate Atkinson) that the show is based on, and I think JI played Jackson to perfection. He was exactly as I imagined him...and yes, okay, I admit to having a huge crush on Jackson Brodie - which has now increased ten-fold after seeing him being played by Jason Isaacs. *melts at the thought*
I've also been rewatching ER and Six Feet Under from the very beginning on Sky Atlantic, and enjoying them both immensely. I'd forgotten just how much I loved these shows when they first aired - especially the earlier seasons of ER. They're so good!
And last but not least I've been watching Big Love and Battlestar Galactica (also on Sky Atlantic), which I've never seen before. To be honest, I didn't think I was going to like a show about polygamy, so I've been pleasantly surprised by just how much I'm enjoying Big Love.I'm about midway through S2 at the moment and am loving it!
As for BSG, I'd seen the mini-series and the first few eps of S1 when they first aired, but had given up on it after that. I know a lot of people on LJ who loved the show, so when it started airing from the beginning on Sky Atlantic (are you sensing a pattern here? *g*) I decided to give it another go - and I'm so glad I did! I'm up to ep5 of S3 and can't wait to see what happens next. Excellent stuff!
Honorary mention must go to Fringe which I finished watching last week. Roll on S4!
And that's just about it. :)
*looks up* I know it must seem like all I do is watch TV, but I only watch these shows on a weekly basis (other than ER which airs every day), so it's mostly just an hour or two every evening while my husband's at work (a bit more at weekends when I catch up on the shows I watch with him). Honestly. ;)
