1. Community 3.17 - Basic Lupine Urology
A new number one, taking the spot of Remedial Chaos Theory. I'm a massive fan of Law and Order and this was a glorious parody of the show, absolutely perfect. Everything worked. Superb characterisations, an amazingly great background joke as well that I'm surprised they managed to use, the plot was L&O 101 complete with twist ending, the use of location title cards and the "chung chung" effect was great and the cameo from Leslie Hendrix was the icing on the cake.

41. Community 3.16 - Virtual Systems Analysis

Frasier / Ain't Nobody's Business If I Do series 05 ep11 (1998)
An episode that is high in laughs but also emotion . The end of this episode is lovely with Frasier and Martin awkwardly (but quickly not) sitting at a bar together watching a game and drinking a beer.

Utopia / series 01 ep04 (2013)
I canít tell if Iím enjoying this series or not, I mean Iím still watching it and Iím still a little bit interested in what is going to happen but Iím not massively enthused.

Community / History 101 series 04 ep01 (2013)
Yay itís back! An average episode for Community but still far better than anything Iíve seen from other American comedies of late.

Enlightened / The Ghost Is Seen Series 2 Episode 5 (2013)

Over the last 6 weeks Enlightened has become one of my favourite programs. It features a plethora of great performances both in front of and behind the camera. It is also has two of the best TV episodes Iíve ever seen. One is Consider Helen, which shifts the perspective from Laura Dernís lead Amy Jellicoe to her mother to quietly devastating effect, and is the highlight of 2011′s television. The other, Sundayís The Ghost Is Seen.

This episode focuses on Tyler- Amyís lonely, shy colleague at Cogentiva played by writer/showrunner Mike White. As uncomfortable as it is to admit, Tyler is one of the character I most relate to in any pop culture over the last couple of years and and Mike White is so good at writing and playing the character, so I wanted came into this episode with high expectations, which were surpassed.

The image of lonely people as ghosts is a recurring one in Enlightened, and one that this opening narration captures quite well with Tyler describing himself as having nothing tying him down and no to love to lose, and spinning these as positives. This is one of the saddest moments Iíve seen in the show. Heís been so lonely for so long, itís almost comfortable in itís familiarity.

This is where Eileen (Molly Shannon) comes in. Shannon makes a great addition to the cast. She serves a double purpose in the show. For Tyler she represents his first real relationship in what seems a long time, and their romance is genuinely very sweet. However it is undermined from the start by Tyler allowing Amy and Dougie to hack her computer as they are trying to take down Abaddonn CEO Charles Szidon. This deceit makes the entire relationship bittersweet. Tyler is finally finding a degree of happiness, but it is predicated on deceit.

This overarching feeling is expressed brilliantly in the narration, with Tyler again casting himself as a ghost.

The ghost is sad. All those years invisible haunt him now. Why didnít he try? Or care? Or be? The ghost is happy. He is found. He is held and he is seen. The Ghost is seen.

His current happiness fills him with regret for the years he has wasted. Although it works both ways- his years of loneliness also allow him to feel this happiness more keenly.

I want him to keep his happiness, but Iím not hopeful that he will.

I've been thinking about checking out Enlightened.

Black Mirror / Be Right Back series 02 ep01
I really enjoyed this and I hope the rest of the series (well 2 episodes) is just as good. Where I quite liked the first Series of Black Mirror I wasnít as enamoured as the majority, Be Right Back was quite low key by comparison or least appeared so but Iíve been thinking about it a bit the last few days. I thought Haley Atwell was very good and Domhnall Gleeson popped up again which right now is a pretty fantastic occurrence.

The Following / Chapter Two series 01 ep02
The Following / The Poet's Fire series 01 ep03
The Following / Mad Love series 01 ep04

Tedious.

Thoroughly enjoyed it as well and it's a great companion piece to 'the entire history of you' (obviously the standout of the last series, which I noticed Robert Downey Jnr bought the rights to recently). Brooker's fictional writing is improving all the time.

Oh you should. It has a bit of a slow start, but one that still feels like it's building to something. And what it builds to is so good. It's been on such a roll from the latter half of last season. I was actually thinking that of the people on the forum, you and rawlinson would probably like it the most.

Iíll add it to my ever growing list. I was looking at watching it and I like your review so itís moved up at bit.

Battlestar Galactica / The Hand of God series 01 ep10 (2004)
I love Mary McDonnell and BSG is still a firm favourite.

Enlightened / Now or Never series 01 ep02 (2011)
Enlightened / Pilot series 01 ep01 (2011)

Iím really enjoying Enlightened. I know itís only two episodes but itís been a really interesting hour or so. At times laugh out loud funny yet thereís a pleasant dramatic underlining.

Justified / The Moonshine War series 02 ep01 (2011)
I loved the first Series so why it took me so long to get around to the second Iíve no idea. Justified is a brilliant series with a great lead and some wonderful support.

The Walking Dead / The Suicide King series 03 ep09 (2013)
I donít love The Walking Dead but I keep watching, so it must be doing something right.

The Wire / The Detail series 01 ep02 (2002)
I always thought The Wire was younger than it is, it has aged but then I suppose it is a distinct product of the time and despite the age (first series is ten years old) itís an incredibly well formed show, even at this early stage.

Side Note: Adam Arkin has been directing the shit out of many of the episodes of television Iíve watched recently.

Enlightened / Consider Helen series 01 ep9 (2011)
Iíve one more episode of the first series to go and I have to say it's been ridiculously brilliant. I think it's probably quite a polarizing series but I've absolutely loved every episode. I've not written much about it because of my limit skills however Consider Helen deserves to be highlighted. It's an audacious slice of television that switches focus from our star Laura Dern to her on screen (and off) mother Helen (Diane Ladd) a day in the life sort of thing. So far in the series Helen has been a cold, at times distant and somewhat uninterested presence hovering on the fringes of each episode, here we explore her a little bit more and itís heart-breaking. Consider Helen is one of the best episodes of any television series Iíve seen in years.

I was just in awe of it. I don't think I've ever seen a scene that was just two elderly women talking given that amount of time. The Helen/Levi scene was brilliant too.

I liked that too, the fact as awesome as Diane Ladd is it was an episode (and scene) in which you have two women in their seventies, being women in their seventies. No gloss, no Hollywood bollocks. It did however make me more and more uncomfortable (for Helen) the longer the conversation went on which was probably the point, it was excellent.

Itís very good. I thoroughly adored the first series and though the second isn't as good, it is still a brilliant series. Xander Berkeley does more sitting down in 120 second chunks than most actors do in ten years, he's absolutely superb. I hope there will be a third series.

Ditto. I never really followed it online but I was really impressed at how well they'd brought it to TV.

Iíd not heard of it until midway through February, I was reading up on Webseries and it kept popping up and sounded like one of the more interesting shows. Iím pleased I checked it out.

2. Black-Adder II - Beer (#1.5) - 9/10
7. Black-Adder II - Money (#1.4) - 8/10
 
Two more hilarious episodes with nice supporting work from Miriam Margoyles as Adder's fussy aunt in Beer. There's something oddly satisfying about seeing so many respected actors wearing plastic breasts and getting drunk.

2. Black Adder the Third - Ink and Incapability (#1.2)  - 9/10
3. The Big Bang Theory - The Panty Pinata Situation (#2.7)  - 9/10

8. Black Adder the Third - Dish and Dishonesty (#1.1) - 8/10
9. Black-Adder II - Chains (#1.6) - 8/10


Final episode of Black-Adder II is funny enough, if not the best, a few gags misfire but as always as mostly the comic timing of all the actors keeps it afloat. Sad to see Miranda Richardson leaving.

Black Adder the Third, starts off a little ropey with some obvious jokes but by episode 2 its on much firmer ground with the new cast of characters working very well. Hugh Laurie is suitably daft in the role that kind of takes over from Tim McInnery. Whilst Robbie Coltrane is brilliant in episode 2 as the pompous git who writes the dictionary and the dream sequence is genius.

Meanwhile Big Bang Theory works well when focusing on relationship between Sheldon and Penny, and this episode from season 2 is a classic where the two of them are at odds with each other.

10. Black Adder the Third - Nob and Nobility (#1.3) - 8/10
12. Black Adder the Third - Sense and Senility (#1.4) - 8/10


Tim McInnery makes a welcome return in episode 3, as a pompous french man, very funny stuff and I didn't even realise he plays another character until late on. Episode 4 is a funny little poke at actors with bellowing voices, did they have problems with Brian Blessed in the first season?

Black Adder the Third ends on fine form and maintains the quality of the second series. Stephen Fry has a great time smacking Hugh Laurie around as a brutal army captain. The Blackadder specials meanwhile, are whilst still fun despite being very Blackadder-lite. Looking forward to the final season which I'll start soon.
Started watching Community as its been recommended. It's very American is my initial thoughts, some fun stuff in there, especially Chevy Chase but show hasn't grabbed me yet, only two episodes in though so will give it a chance.
Second series of Smash looks set to be more of the same, which is fine but hopefully there will be some new developments.
Alias is daft fun, lots of silly moments but it's a good show to just switch your brain off for a little while. As is My Name is Earl, David Arquette has a nice cameo as sweet johnny.
Big Time Rush is just nonsense that I watched for the eye candy, and it wasn't even all that!
