    Going on my recently cemented conviction that HBO are incapable of making a bad show, I decided to watch this despite not being a big fan of westerns.

    First two eps are :cool: and this will definetly keep me going till new true blood/being human/doctor who.
    :cool:

    Jeffrey has been bigging it up for a few years now. Cant say I've been tempted though, its got Lovejoy in it.

    Lovejoy is a bastard in this

    perplexis A change of scene, a change of style....

    Ian McShane is wicked in it, Lovejoy or no Lovejoy :D
    I liked the show on the whole but it weakens dramatically in the 3rd series as it appears to write itself into a hole.
    The script and the acting are very strong and I enjoyed it.

    ya BBC. It's the only recent show that has had me hooked, apart from trueblood and of course the horribly flawed but slowly improving Heros

    Heroes is fucking wank.

    How can you mention Heroes and Deadwood in the same thread? Just imagine what Al Swearengen would say about Heroes.

    Ian Mcshane makes me feel slightly odd. The same off kilter/ allergic response I get when I see Nicolas Cage.

    I dont think I could bring myself to watch it tbh :(

    Ian McShane was good in Sexy Beast. Is this Deadwood thingy on BBC now then?

    Deadwood is fantastic! McShane's acting is superb, in fact, I can't think of a single character who doesn't put in a great performance. I've watched the first two series three times now, and get more from it each time. Never thought it would be my thing, but it blew me away.

    I don't know but I'm guessing it would contain the words Fuck, Cocksucker, Dozy, Cunt & Gimp.


    I *heart* frivolous (motherfucking) swearing

    Oh, and its not for the faint-hearted - a couple of scenes are truely sickening:eek:.

    3 seasons of 12 episodes.

    Yeah, when Al gets cut for the stone and has to piss it out is fucking hardcore

    Heroes needs to be watched purely for Sylar, awesome powers and the ever-diminishing hope that claire might get her baps out.

    Deadwood seems like it's a cut above from the 2 eps I saw

    So, I assume that you're a closet (no homophobia intended) fan of SATC, dotty?

    Ive not bothered with season 3 of Heroes so appalled was I by the botched second season.

    I tried Dollhouse with Eliza Dushku, watched the first episode and it was godawful. Eye and ear pollution.

    Technically, it made La Femme Nikita look well crafted.

    I have not watched Heroes since there was a character in the first series called Eden McCain.

    Have to agree re: Dollhouse - so bad I couldn't look beyond the badness and just simply gaze at la Dusky

    La Femme Nikita.

    :D

    I used to watch that.

    Me too. I was always surprised at the...broadness, the solidity, of the woman playing Nikita - she wasn't fat or owt, just pretty sturdy IYSWIm

    That didn't coincide with puberty did it? :D

    It was Daisy Duke in my day. ;)
