Yeah, I really enjoyed that, too. Coogan does such a wonderful job of playing himself as an unpleasant yet hilarious personality (see also Coffee and Cigarettes). And Brydon's performance is really nice, too.

you should check out their Tristram Shandy riff, which is worth it for one scene alone.

And then there's always Alan, with his big plate :P

The blu-ray edition of Game of Thrones has an in-episode guide that details characters, locations, and lore for each scene that progesses and becomes more in-depth the further you go. I'm still really impressed by its first season, which works even better in a weekend-long binge as opposed to the week-by-week schedule. It is one of those shows that's easier to digest as a mini-series than an episodic television series.

shows I finished watching the first season of. 3 out 5 are pretty racist (Rookie Blue, surprisingly, not that much, and Larry Sanders...), none of them are great, but none are outright shit, they all have advantages. Falling Skies though probably the worst one.

I quite liked the opening double episode. They ease us back into it, reintroducing all the characters and where they are in their lives and careers, while sneaking in some themes underneath... it's 1966, everyone's living in a technicolor party straight out of a Peter Sellers comedy, but things lurk in the corners and the street outside is full of protesters and even the supposedly young and radical copywriters have any clue what's in the air. Dancing beans indeed.

Dad's. Fuckin. Army. Good Lord. Enjoy.

We've actually got a little bit of TV action in: second season of the Sopranos (I know, we're a decade behind veryone else, but we don't care).

Good stuff. Not quite as good as season one, but lots and lots of good stuff in it. A very slight tendency towards soap opera (have another kid, tenderness between the caracters soemtimes intrusive etc). But they manage to keep the whole gangster/shrink thing fresh - at least for now.

Very fine writing and acting overall.

I find that very, very sad.

On a somewhat similiar note, I finished the latest season of Curb Your Enthusiasm and found the third episode "Palestinian Chicken" to be one of the greatest commentaries on the Israeli–Palestinian conflict I've ever come across. It's also fucking hilarious to boot, coining the phrase "social assassin" and knocking those arguing against the "Ground Zero Mosque" in typical Larry David fashion.

Ha. I tried to get myself to love it through watching it in various ways (chronologically, randomly, well known episodes) but while I did enjoy it (yes, it's damn good) I never got to the *loving* state of mind.
I did love Friends though. :eh:

Yeah, I know. :/

Like Meropi said, I can easily see what's good about it but I never loved it.

Maybe one day. :)
