Up to episode 8 of The Wire now. It's weird, the compulsion to keep watching it is a lot more subtle that the usual "end an episode on a cliffhanger" type thing. Since the characters are nearly all so individual and strongly developed, I think there's a sense of just wanting to know more about them that makes me keep watching. I'm sometimes a bit hard of thinking when it comes to following TV shows, but I find this oddly easy. Probably 'cos the crime fighting part of the storyline is so cohesive and has no real bullshit, it's mostly all on-point and put out there nice and clearly for me to take in (Fnaar!). I like the real feel of it, with the cops being full of incompetents and assholes, and they look like ordinary people instead of supermodels and the stereotyped overly confident powerdressed detectives you see on other cop shows who work miracles and always get their man.

9/10 movements of the stash for me so far.

Masterchef Season 4.

Up to Episode 4 now. I was a huge fan of the last season and this season is looking very good so far.

One of my favourite shows. It takes its time and develops the characters so well. Probably the best slow moving Crime/Drama show I've ever seen.

Season 3 just gets and better as time goes on, each episode better than the last. Can't wait for S4, it's going to be incredible.

Yup. Thought I give it a try since I have access to the streaming movie stuff on Amazon for the time being, the thumbnail caught my attention for some reason.

Glad I did. My god, the writing is amazing as hell. The person who created this created the Gilmore Girls, which from what little I know of it was about a smartass daughter/mother team doing...I dunno, whatever.

But wow, this show is great so far. Will definitely keep watching.
