Watching this now. Really promising. :) Ian McShane is the man.

I'm waiting for him to do another show. Such presence!! Could not remember if they aired/ended Kings properly. But that show's story was compelling. Yun nga lang, it's probably too heavy to understand on network TV (NBC).

Recently Discovered TV Shows You Might Not Have Heard About Yet  --- Luther. Although not so recent yun, was watching it a couple of months back. And yung Rev, which I haven't finished yet. Parang The Office, is my impression, pero mga pari. LOL. So timely, given uso na naman si Damaso. ;D

Uy di ko alam yang Rev! I'll check it out. :)

I'm trying to research on new Brit series na okay pero ang hirap makahanap ng site na may good info. Most of the Brit series that I discover, I do so accidentally like Dead Set and Apparitions.

RE: Luther

Watched it because of Idris Elba. His accent can be a bit disorienting at first if you're familiar with his work on The Wire. As a series though, it kinda lost its wheels towards the end. Hopefully it gets better in season 2.

An Idiot Abroad

Haven't seen this yet but it features Karl Pilkington of the Ricky Gervais Show traveling around the world.

Childrens Hospital

Part of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, it began as a web series in 2008. Rob Corddry and a comedy all star cast pokes fun of medical dramas such as Grey's Anatomy and E.R. It's been picked up for a third season recently. Highly recommended.

Grabe yang Children's Hospital! ;D ;D Although I didn't watch the succeeding episodes anymore,  no one wants to watch it with me, medyo sick kasi  yung humor, guess coz it's Rob Cordry. ;D No fun watching it alone.

I've been wanting to watch Idiot Abroad! Is it running already?

Just saw the first episode of The Gates. My interest was piqued enough to try and check out the second episode. Although I can already sense a kind of supernatural Desperate Housewives and Twlight ripoff vibe going on with the show.

It's more than just a place to live, y'know  ;)

Paradox

Dr Christian King, a world-renowned astrophysicist, claims to have received a series of images from space. The images show fragments of an event, an explosion in which many are killed. Shockingly, Dr King claims the disaster is yet to happen. It will take place in 18 hours time.

Is this an elaborate warning of a terrorist attack, or could it be something else? Uncertain, DI Rebecca Flint and her team investigate Dr King and the images. But as the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle come together, it becomes clear that this is a chain of events which no person could possibly predict or plan.

With time running out a tragedy drawing closer DI Flint begins to contemplate the impossible - that the images might not be a coded warning or an elaborate threat, but a genuine glimpse of the future.



5 episode first season from the UK.

Wala yata daw Tsip.  And medyo bitin ang 5 eps.  Sana 6 man lang, or 10 or 15.  Hehehe

Misfits

This was recommended by my daughter's friends in HS thus she requested me to get the entire series (in addition to Dr. Who).   However, after watching 10 eps (6 Eps from S1 and 4 Eps from ongoing S2), I'm not sure (yet) whether I would actually allow her to watch.  But the storyline is interesting.

Ibang klase talaga ang teenage TV series sa UK.    ;D

Why is Simon Cowell's The X-Factor not popular in the Philippines?

Sa ganda at accent palang ng female judges/mentors, walang sinabi ang AI.   ;)..and the format is very interesting.

BAFTA TV Award winner pala ang Misfits.  It's dark yet funny and medyo nakakaloka/loko ang storylines.  Akala ko superheroes style ang dating.  The character portrayed by Robert Sheehan is particularly hilarious...and I like that the actors and actresses look like "real people."  Pero sa Filipino culture, kailangan ng parental guidance yung ibang scenes.   ;)

The Trip

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon star in this improvised comedy about two actors on a culinary tour of the north of England. Steve is commissioned to review half a dozen restaurants for a Sunday newspaper and plans the trip with his American girlfriend - only to face the prospect of a week of meals-for-one after she dumps him. So Steve calls old friend Rob to accompany him, and the pair find themselves debating the big questions of life over a series of delightful dishes.


An excerpt where they outdo each other's Michael Caine impressions. :D

OT: I was watching Gavin and Stacey before and the whole time I thought that Brydon was the guy from Worst Week of My Life (Ben Miller). It was only when I saw The Trip that I realized they were different people. ;D

Brydon and Richard Corden are guests in The One Ronnie.

Check out 10 O'Clock News. Even if the issues tackled are sometimes local politics, it's still a hoot.

For those of you who like the old Skinemax shows from the 90s, download "Chemistry" from eztv.

That's all I'll say.  ;)

MasterChef Australia is a Logie award winning Australian competitive cooking game show based on the original British MasterChef.

Warning lang, one season is 80+ episodes  :o
