The Wild Arabia series has been brilliant so far.

I get mostly Octonauts and Thomas though.

^^ Black Mirror was pretty good - done by the same dude / dudette that did that Prisoner's Wife drama tonight on BBC1 - pretty good as well.

Black Mirror was pretty good, although I think I preferred the stories in the first season (however, Ep 2 of this season was great for the public's reaction alone).

Utopia started out pretty well, fizzled a little towards the end, but I still thought it was kinda groovy. Conspiracy theories surrounding a comic book ticks all my boxes.

Current shows I'm watching are The Walking Dead (again, based on a comic book), Arrow (comic books) & Breaking Bad, all of which are pretty good. Beats the fudge out of "reality TV" that TV networks are still adamant on showing (the worst contender right now is Channel 4's "Gogglebox" - seriously, why would I watch a programme on people watching programmes?)

River monsters- dude catching big ugly fish

Cheaters- people getting busted cheating on their partners. Saw an epic one the other day where they caught a man cheating on his girlfriend in a motel and he was dressed as a grown up baby. The camera crew burst in through the motel room door and he ran away across the car park wearing a nappy. :oops:

Breaking Bad..................... 8) 8) 8)

What can I say. We are hooked on this, sometimes watching two episodes per night, successive days.

Not fast paced but very dark with some great humour.

Go find it and watch......... 8) 8) 8)

Along the same vein is

Not saying it's good Tv, someone just mentioned it to me a while back and this reminded me of it. Fugged up is how I would class it.

For giggles I've watched a few Entourage and Californiacation. Both were amusing but I'm not a fan of serials that leave you wanting more and ultimately never give you closure to ensure you come back for season x only for the writers and production team to change and the quality to go down the pan. I learned my lesson as a kid waiting years for Tales Of The Golden Monkey to come back on the beeb. Still waiting...

The BBC 3 part series 'Atom' was amazing for anyone interested in Science and has forgotten all they (should have) learned in school.
