I've now watched the first two series of Seinfeld and it is getting better, but only a bit. George and Kramer are definitely my faves. Georges line-
"I cant think of a situation where I'm ever going to have sex again" (or something to that extent) was great. Larry David's input is what makes me want to keep watching, in wait of one of his gems. The only problem with this is that I feel like watching Curb Your Enthusiasm instead most of the time. I'll keep going this week and watch season 3 but unless the quality picks up, or I can get the other series on the cheap, I'll be leaving this series there.

It does improve dramatically in series 3, whilst series 4 is quite possibly the finest series of any TV show ever.

Just started dipping into "Sorry!" with Ronnie Corbett.

It's reasonably painless with a decent smattering of smiley moments. I feel as though it may struggle after a few more episodes as the plot lines essentially include Timothy falling for a girl but his mum keeps getting in the way (not literally).

Although it does prove Corbett cannot act, it's still rather nice and quaint all the same.

You speak no word of a lie. I've got one disk of season 3 left and the improvement is silly. It's clear that the actors and writers had really gotten ito their stride and had refined the format of the show and their performances by this point. It's actually good enough that I will be looking to get the rest of the seasons quite soon.
The only thing that's irritiating me now is the was Kramer gets a huge laugh for almost all of his lines. Yes he is wacky and often very funny but not to that extent.

I've also been working through Seinfeld or recent. It's one of those shows that really benefits from investing some time in and watching one after the other. I liked the odd episode that I caught before, but I could never really see what all the fuss was about.

However, after working solidly through 4 seasons I can finally see its brilliance. It's an utter joy to watch. I've just today ordered seasons 5 and 6 off Play and I'm looking foward to them muchly.

Last month we finished watching season 2 of Lost so now we're filling our time with Sopranos season 6 and Band of Brothers. I've still got most of season 3 of Scrubs to watch and next purchase will be Family Guy 4.

Got it through the post on Saturday. Rarely is a kids program as good as you remember it, Eerie Indiana is better. Every episode is a perfectly crafted fantasy tale filled with humour aimed at both the young and old alike.
I've been amazed by the familiar faces I've seen acting in the series. So far, I'm up to the third disk and I've seen (you'll have to excuse my , starting with the biggest name- Toby Maguire, Jeffrey Tambor (George Bluth Sr. in Arrested Development), John Astin (the origional Gomez Addams), Henry Gibson (Innerspace, Sabrina The Teenage Witch, Blues Brothers), Dick Miller (Gremlins 1 & 2), the twins who play the security guard in Terminator 2 (the bit where the guard is looking at his paper cup talking about the pictures on it before being killed by the T-1000) and a few other I cant think of right now.
Saw the best reference on an episode last night. The grey haired kid smashes a guy around the back of the head with a big log in order to save Marshall. Marshall shouts "It's you!" and he responds "Well I aint the log lady". Brilliant reference in a kids show, aimed squarely at the parents.

I've just rented Disc 1 of the first series of 'The Wire', I've heard very good things and shall watch it this week.

Surely it can't really be better than 'The Sopranos'?

It's not just better than The Sopranos, it's the best thing HBO have ever done. Season 3 is out next month on Region 1. I'll be taking a sickie the morning that drops through the letterbox.

This made me laugh. God, it should lay my eyes and ears on that show again!

just finished going through 'ray mears - extreme survival' series 1 & 2 again, in anticipation of series 3 dropping through my letter box.

ray's genuine enthusiasm, which never resorts to him preaching at you, combined with extraordinary tales of people surviving unbelievable hardships, lots of interesting facts and some beautiful scenery make this one of my favourite series. great stuff...

I've already watched all of it. I really hould try and pace myself a bit more when I get a new series. Spotted a split second shot of Denise Richards looking incredibly young in episode 18. I dont think the last episode in the set was aired in the UK, it certainly wasn't the last episode aired here when it origionally came out. The subject matter in it is quite serious by comparison to the usual tales and think it may have been removed for just that reason.

Just started Flithy Rich & Catflap. Watched the first episode which I've probably already seen 4 times. Rik Mayall is suburb & the writing is great. I hope it keeps up. It will be a nice sequel to The Young Ones.

I think it's quite good, certainly better than Bottom eventually was.

Granted I've only seen the one episode, but I like it a lot more than I did Bottom.
