Following on from the hugely successful threads "What are you listening to today?", "What are you reading?" and "What are you drinking?" I thought I'd start "What are you watching?"

You can name anything that's taken your fancy recently... whether it's a film in the cinema, a DVD box set or a series on TV

I'll start...

Flight of the conchords - Brilliant comedy series about two failed Kiwi folk singers trying to make it big in the US

Children of the Stones - a bit of late-70s weirdness.


Going though a bit of a nostalgia phase...

On an entirely different note, I have just bought a copy of Serenity which I am looking forward to watching again.

There's a British Website that hosts torrents links for British TV programmes, old & new. You can come across programmes on that site you'd never thought you would see again. With the European football stuff going on someone had made available "Kevin Allen's World Cup Video Diary (1990)"
Its a Video Diary of guy following England and the supporters during the 1990 world cup. I went over for a few of the games and can say it's brilliant documentary of what it was like to be a football supporter in those times.
It was the last time that football was unfashionable. I and most of the people going to matches back then couldn't have comprehended how much and how quickly football would change.

Doctor Who - but what the devil is going on in this latest episode? It's very confusing, and the Doctor seems to have disappeared...

Decent British TV drama, a bit like buses then...

The first series of the Sapranos in high-def. Good so far... And I'll be glued to the Olympics for August.

We are in thrall to Summer Heights High, which, like a meaty casserole, is even better the next day. The premise doesn't sound too promising: it's an Australian mockumentary about a comprehensive, with one actor (Chris Lilley) playing 3 people - Jonah the Tongan reprobate; Ja'mie the private school girl 'on exchange' to a state school; and Mr G, power-crazed Director of Performing Arts.

What makes it funny is the characters are so brilliantly observed and hideous - like David Brent without the redeeming features. It's rude and sweary and completely un-PC but strangely uplifting. One for all the family ;)

Criminal Justice was really gripping stuff.

This is really sad, but I'm hooked on Celebrity Masterchef :ph34r:
