Talk about moving pictures that appear both on big and small screens alike. Discuss anything about the TV and the silver screen, from Firefly to Twilight, from unforgettable classics to potential newcomers.

I currently am taking up the Star Trek franchise! I've started with what was considered to be the worst series, Enterprise; oddly, I seem to be enjoying it quite a lot. I also will consider taking up Firefly.

I am a fan of sci-fi movies and TV series, ever since I watched The Andromeda Strain simply by curiosity. Any recommendations?

    I recently finished the four seasons of Breaking Bad that are on Netflix and I'm not sure what to take up next. I'm currently considering Mad Men and re-watching the full run of Battlestar Galactica. Any other suggestions for good dramas that aren't from HBO?

    Went and saw Snow White and the Huntsman at a second run theatre last night. It was good as you could expect from a movie that starts from the premise that K-Stew is prettier than Charlize Theron. Which is to say, not really worth the three bucks.

    I'm currently cable free, so I'm rewatching entire run of BSG as well. For the fourth or fifth time. Still love it. So well written. Have you given Walking Dead a try?

    I watched the first season of Walking Dead when it aired but haven't watched any further in the series. I'll add that to the queue and give it a go. I just realized there were new episodes of Burn Notice (cheesy, but it entertains me) added to Netflix recently so I'm watching that currently.

    Ive been getting into some british tv, thanks to netflix. Or at least mysteries, anyways. Tge aforementioned Sherlock, Midsomer Murders, Inspector Lewis. Discovered a canadian show called Murdoch Mysteries, which turned out to be entertaining. Think sherlock meets CSI, in Victorian era Toronto.

    Just watched all of Breaking Bad on netflix too. I also watched Sons of Anarchy which was alot better than I expected it to be. I gave Heroes a try but the first episode was pretty bad for me. Also just saw the Dark Knight Rises which I thought was okay but the Bane beating the crap out of the Batman scene was awesome.

    @Jurixe Definitely one of my hubby and I's favourite shows too - and I always liked the UK version too, which was its predecessor. We Youtube it all the time.

    Aside from that, I tend to watch a lot of Big Bang Theory, Just for Laughs/Stand-up Comedy, and Mythbusters. And Monty Python. They've just greenlighted a new 13ep Canadian drama based on Bitten by Kelley Armstrong which I am incredibly excited for which will probably be added to that list when it starts. :D

As for you, Gilgamesh, fill your belly with good things; day and night, night and day, dance and be merry, feast and rejoice. Let your clothes be fresh, bathe yourself in water, cherish the little child that holds your hand, and make your wife happy in your embrace; for this too is the lot of man."

    I'm having trouble getting over Sanctuary, since I just recently saw the final episode. The first two seasons were so good. So good. Season three had some incredible episodes (the WW2 one) and some appallingly bad ones (anything with that awful FBI agent chick), and started escalating the show's concept too much IMO. The fourth season kind of went the same way, but the last two eps were bringing it back towards the first two seasons. And then it didn't get renewed. At least it ended properly, no unresolved cliffhanger.

    I am excited for new Doctor Who. The end of the last season took it in a cool direction so I'm excited to see where this one goes.

    I did pretty much the same thing, watched the entire 10 episode season in two evenings. Though considering who created it I'm not at all surprised that it was probably the best thing I've seen in the last few years.

    Unrelated to that, I'm excited about the new season of Sons of Anarchy starting on Tuesday, even if I do have to stream it because it won't be shown here until the beginning of next year at the earliest.

    Game of Thrones. True Blood. Boardwalk Empire. Best shows around at the moment, imho. :D

    Really loved Boardwalk Empire, just a great show with rich characters.
    The sweltering heat of the forge spills out across the land as the rumbling voice of Phaestus booms, "I want you to know, the Garden reaction to that one is: What?"
    The voice of Melantha, Goddess of the Seasons, echoes amid the rustle of leaves, "That's the censored version."
