I have watched the first two episodes of Gotham. Seems OK but my only beef it it appears to be set in the very recent past. People using mobiles etc. Wheras Batman has been around now for decades.

It isn't particularly taxing on the brain but fine to kill 40 minutes or so.

I recently watched the Jonathon Rhys Meyers series of Dracula, if that's the one you're on about.

It was OK. I've got a few others lined up at the moment, like Grimm, that looks like fun.

Looking forward to getting hold of the second season of Orphan Black. First one of those was brilliant.

Watched the first two episodes of Intruders last night - seems bloody confusing at the mo, but the premise sounds great.

Also started watching Forever. I missed the pilot but the first episode proper was quite good - a man who can't die. When he does he gets resurrected again, always in water and always naked.

Just watched True Detective, that was quite good.

Just starting on the first season of The Following, starring Kevin Bacon.

Ah, The Following is good fun. It gets progressively more ridiculous but it's very enjoyable. Season 3 concludes next week. James Purefoy is excellent as Joe Carroll.

So far, it's very sort of Dexter, in style.

For binge watching, I suggest the first two series of Orphan Black. The third series is just starting.

The first series is the kind of show where you can't stand waiting at the end of the episode for the next one to begin.

I don't want to say too much, but just know that it's sci-fi, and the actors are kick-ass good.

Yeah, once you get to season 2 and the same actors start cropping up, you'll think you're watching Dexter.

What is it with this Sam Underwood boy and Showtime's obsession with him? And why is he always playing some sort of psychopath? Dexter, The Following, Homeland...

Reign is pretty good IMO.

Finally started watching Breaking Bad, courtesy of Spike's new UK channel. Just started season two. It's very good, although I perhaps don't see what all the fuss is about quite yet.
