I enjoyed Luther but I thought it was a shame that Alice wasn't in it more. I actually can't remember where she went after the first episode.
Everlong
She was at the stand when Luther and Jenny got their Ice Cream biggrin.gif Well a redhead anyway, which Idris tweeted about after (on the @bbcluther twitter).

She'll be back I bet!

That was the one low(ish) light of the whole thing for me, if only because I love Ruth Wilson lots.

Thought the series was absolutely cracking though, no idea why they only gave it 4 episodes but Neil Cross managed to write an interesting, taut plot with loads of great ideas, then put it all together in 4 hours without it spiralling out of control or feeling rushed. Apparently the ratings last night were really good, which is extremely encouraging for the future of the show. I hope it gets renewed and gets a longer stint next time. Have to say, despite how much I enjoyed it, there was still a feeling of "is that all?" at the end, simply because I felt like I was just getting warmed up to watching Luther again.

And yes there is a redhead standing at the ice cream van, didn't look like Alice but you never know.

Two things I loved about the very end: the fact they listed Steven Robertson twice in the credits, once for each of the twin brothers. And of course: "now what?"

Already cannot wait for more.

Is this so you could hit on Chandler and Josh Lyman?

This isn't judgmental, I'd do it just to hit on Amanda Peet. Lovely lovely Amanda Peet.

I could watch Idris Elba just stalk from place to place like a disgruntled lion. No dialogue, plot, nothing.

I haven't seen any of series two but those were the best bits, I thought.

I found the twitchy scenery-chewing a bit much from such a fine actor. And Alice was just plain irritating.

It felt like a show that French & Saunders would make the most spot-on parody of...

Not specifically, but you know that would happen.

Mostly so I could live out my dream of writing and/or starting on a late night variety show.

Speaking of magicians, I saw Penn and Teller: Fool Us last night. I'd never seen it before, but I really enjoyed it. There were some really talented people on there, it was the first time in years I'd watched a Saturday evening TV show and been entertained (aside from Who, obviously).
NiteFall
Yes, really enjoying Fool Us, certainly far more entertaining than the lacklustre The Magicians on BBC One, which was frankly rather dull. I am kind of hoping that Penn will quote homer Simpson at some point and say "You couldn't fool your mother on the foolingest day of the year with an electrified fooling machine!" to a particularly bad magician.
Llama
'Fool Us' has been good so far, one of the few things I look forward to watching in the week. Plus, you get bonus P&T at the end. Can't lose there.
Shack
Still enjoying Sirens very much. Plenty to offer, even if a little cliched in parts.

Minor gripe this week - "Let's meet in Briggate".

IT'S A BIG STREET!

Ah well, at least they had a drink in the Adelphi.

How many episodes in is it? I'd never even heard of it until I happened to stumble upon it as it was starting last night.

I *think* that was the fourth episode just gone. They're probably all on ITV player though, if you can stomach using their advert-infested crap.

I've never used ITV Player before, and you didn't exactly sell it on me just then =P
I might give it a look, though.

They showed some of the US ones earlier in the year I think (a Hooters one?) but I didn't watch those. I may delve back in.

The new Futurama is about the nerdiest they've ever done. I particularly liked the appearance of Erwin Shrodinger as a minor character, and the line "Man, that's heavy. Osmium heavy." All the references to Speed Buggy, which I remember watching on Cartoon Network in the '90s, funny for their obtuseness.

The ever dependable Scruffy and Hedonism-bot were also on fine form, with their respective lines "Life and death are an unceasing continuum" and "Are you the callussed working man I ordered?" getting big belly laughs.

The series finale of Friday Night Lights has to be one of the most emotionally satisfying I've ever seen. It was so great getting to see so many characters return, and for their returns to feel natural, and for them to have their own little opportunities to say goodbye to Dillon, Texas. The show managed to give them all resolutions, but true to form they all felt real, and poignant, and also like they weren't resolutions at the same time, like the five seasons of the show were just a small part of a much larger story that will play out off-camera. A really beautiful and heartfelt end to a genuinely great show.

Did anyone catch The Night Watch when it aired? Due to my ongoing Virgin problems I missed it and it'll have disappeared from iplayer by the time I'm connected.

Due to the deal NBC made with DirectTV, the series already aired on there back in February and was released on DVD in April. I picked season 5 up last time I was in Florida.

So, so, so, so, so, so happy that Breaking Bad has returned. It was nice that they gave Gale a scene at the beginning to be his goofy, lovable self before getting to all that "holy fuck, he's been shot in the face" stuff, and the scene with Walt pleading for his life, whilst Gus slowly gets dressed, was absolutely masterful. It says something of Giancarlo Esposito and Aaron Paul that they were absolutely commanding in that scene, yet they didn't say a single word.

I really enjoyed the whole series. Perhaps because of the incredibly funny Dara on You're Fired.

Still watching Sirens and it's still sort of ok. I kind of wish they'd stop crowbarring in cliches, but it's engaging enough.

Richard Hammond's Journey to the Centre of the Planet was pretty good.

To give him his due, he's pretty good at the various science programs he does (as is James May in the different programs he does as well).

Bit ahead on Angry Boys (getting them from Australia). One episode to go and there's a strong possibility of tears being jerked next week. Chris Lilley has topped Summer Heights High and We Can Be Heroes

Watched the last two episodes of Craig Ferguson which featured a great anti-Murcdoch monologue, Rich Fulcher being very wierd (as usual), an hilarious moment when Geoff loses his arm and most impressively Hayley Atwell's entrance which I'm sure will be remembered for ever more by every red blooded male that witnessed it as the moment she got noticed. Aye carumba.

I'm still not convinced. I have been enjoying it, but not quite on the level of SHH. Nathan and Daniel are standouts though, I genuinely forget they're not two different people. So well done.
