    The Newsroom is very good. Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones as well, if you're into HBO series with violence and sex.

    I don't watch that much tv really, but I'm a big movie goer. Too many good ones to list, but some of my all time favourites are The Prestige, Primer, and Moon. 

    Big fan of Nolan and Tarantino.

    Can't go wrong with Nolan and Tarantino! Memento and Kill Bill are two of my favorite movies.

    AMC has some really great shows out right now. Hell on Wheels is half way through its second season. Love it! American Horror Story should start back up soon. Newsroom had an amazing season and all the other HBO shows I totally watch and love. Dexter and Boardwalk Empire are starting up soon. -squeal-

    Lately, I've been watching a lot of YouTube clips of Blackadder episodes. It's amazing to hear Hugh Laurie with a british accent, despite being actually british, because it makes me appreciate more his efforts in House. Also, a lot of Rowan Atkinson stand-up. I would suggest seeing his We Are Most Amused and Fatal Beatings routine!

    also, came across this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mf9jJx0NSjw.

    weird.

    Is the new Supernatural any good? I stopped watching when it came to the end of the origional planned story arc, and heard the next season wasn't that great.

    That, along with Bones have been longtime favourites of mine. Then there's Trueblood, and a couple of new-ish NZ shows that I've been enjoying, The Almighty Johnsons, and Nothing Trivial. And lately I've downloaded and watched Glee, and loving it. I have to admit, I'm a sucker for modern musicals. Mamma Mia! is one of the few movies I have watched at least five times.

    Supernatural seasons 1-5 were pretty amazing. It had clearly been planned out for a 5-season run, with everything gradually escalating and drawing towards a climax and conclusion. The next couple of seasons definitely lack that, which is a shame. It's still pretty good, it didn't suddenly pick up dreadful writing or turn the characters into idiots or anything. It's still Supernatural. But the storytelling is a bit loose, it lacks that sense of focus and direction towards a well-crafted resolution.

    Yeah, season five is the last I saw. Hmm, might check out 6 and 7 sometime then.

    I'm just here to cry about Netflix getting season 6 of Dexter out (not for streaming though), finally getting the DVD to me, then realizing season 6 is the one I watched and I'll have to wait that much longer to watch season 7. the ending of season 6 was such a cliffhanger whyyyyyyyyyy

    Good french movie. Good humour and touching story.

    @Xenomorph We who don't yet have HBO, have got piratebay and eztv.it. Hard to compete with that!

    Getting HBO would mean buying a new interactive HD decoder (349 euro) and then 15 euro per month.... not going to happen any time soon.

    They do, but it's only available in the US and it's needlessly complicated.

    It's called HBO GO, its awesome. Has every show HBO has made, every season every episode.

    Don't concern yourself about things over here, worry if the drinking water in your village is safe.

    Also, it's not the least bit complicated.

    I live in Florida, and have HBO (and pretty much everything else, for free). :P

    One of the biggest problems with HBO GO (aside from being restricted to the US) is that it requires you to already have an HBO subscription, when it would be most useful as an alternative. The "needlessly complicated" part was signing up, though I suppose that's likely Comcast's fault, not HBO's.

    Rented game of thrones and I thought as soon as the game itself began the movie went horribly south. Also I just saw looper in the theater and it turned out to be much better than I expected.

    @Synbios I just watched that too. It was okay, had some funny parts, I'm really starting to get tired of animated Disney movies though. Would have liked to see Sinister but no one seems to share my love of horror. :( Also really not worth it to see in 3D.

    Movieplace I went to didn't have the 3D version, which meant cheaper tickets. I never really got the appeal of 3D movies anyway.
