Finished Deadwood on Sky on demand. Ian McShane is excellent, Timothy Olyphant is not. Overall it's pretty good, there are plenty of great moments.

I wish more TV shows would just tell a story though, rather than building on a central premise for x amount of episodes/series'. It's the reason why even though I've still been watching it, I've not cared about The Walking Dead for about 3 years. What's the end game? I feel like whoever writes it (I know its source material is comic books) is just pulling stories out of their ass with no idea how it all ends. That's the reason why I gave up with Suits the minute the novelty of a wise cracking genius lawyer and attractive female co-stars had worn off. Why were there 151 episodes of The Mentalist when only about 15 of them were to do with the main story? Quit wasting my time with pointless filler and tell me a story. Spartacus was excellent because it told a story, Samurai Champloo was excellent because it told a story, the first season of True Detective was excellent because it told a story. When you evaluate Lost as a whole, it's absolutely crap, because they had no idea where they were going with it, it's great when you look at individual episodes and moments, but it's still disjointed and all over the place. I don't know what I'm getting at.

Only 1 more week of "the people Vs OJ Simpson",been a really good watch but think OJ might get away with it know after those tapes.

Season 2 is already been talked about and will be set around the aftermath of hurricane katrina according to reports.

DC: Legends of Tomorrow.

Gave up on this whilst watching the most recent episode thought I don't actually care what happens to any of you.

I assume you mean he will rightly be found innocent of all of the charges.

It's obviously that he was targeted and framed by the racist LAPD, The gloves didn't even fit!

Have you not been watching??

Unless there is a massive twist I don't see coming I think he will walk, although it might be a cliff hanger into series two!

Exciting drama none the less... not been this gripped by a ending since I watched the Titanic!

Gave up even before then. You're obviously more patient than me.

Have seen a few trailers for the new Preacher series that's due out soon. Looks proper vicious, but aside from the 3 main characters I didn't see anything familiar from the comics. I know a 90 second trailer is not going to reveal everything but I can't shake the feeling that they're going to go off in a very different direction and it's going to be dreadful.

Having read the book started watching 11.22.63 on Fox

Thought it was ok, but the set up to the portal was really rushed, giving very little back story to Franco's lead character. Will stick with it
