Re: What are you watching?

Missed 'The Wire' first time around. Have Sky +'d it and so far watched first 6 - I think it's terrific, my wife's still sitting on the fence. Not sure how I get around this if she doesn't warm to it.

I understand that the Beeb are showing the complete 5 series' of the show pretty much back to back - and a/ the sky + doesn't haven't have the storage capacity (it's full of Peppa Pig & Charlie & Lola for our granddaughter and I don't have a DVD recorder) and b/ spending the requisite hours away from her to watch it on my own would probably end up in divorce - this is when you take into consideration that sport and music don't play a big part in her life - but do in mine!!! Any suggestions?

Incidentally anybody out there feel as pee'd off as I do that Boston Legal is coming to an end - surely this has got to be one of the the most brilliant, (albeit quirky) TV programs ever made? Oh, and my wife isn't indifferent to it, she absolutely HATES it!?!

Re: What are you watching?

Ah yes, the Boosh - oft quoted around the office when deadlines loom. Somehow the line "Stop pretending to be Mark King and make my legs thin" seems appropriate for almost any situation.

As for me, I'm ploughing through season 5 of Boston Legal while deciding whether I like Picasso enough to trek down to the National Gallery on a Saturday. Hmm.

I watched five minutes of it, but was so dissappointed I turned it off. Sometimes, you just can't go home again.

Re: What are you watching?

I watched the new Star Trek film last night and thought it was superb. I would urge anyone to go and see it. It does the big screen, action movie grandeur thing very well but better still are the characters. I think they got this bit right, no mean feat.

Re: What are you watching?

Watched 'Choke' last night. The Missus is a huge Palahniuk fan and was miffed we missed it at the cinema.

Not bad. Bit too 'out there' for me, but I guess that's Palahniuk for you.

TV wise 'Reno 911' is my current fave, very funny. Thursday nights have all our current fave shows one after the other, 'The Mentalist', 'Inbetweeners', 'Big Bang Theory' & 'Reno 911'.

Watching The Wire on bbc and loving it. I too highly recommend the new Star Trek movie, even if you know nothing about all previous shown its a great stand alone film.

Too true, its great!

Lamentable.
