    I love Imelda. She's quite tiny. This will be very interesting. Thanks for sharing Shimm.

    I'm really loving The Crown.

    Finished Breaking Bad yesterday. I didn't like it. I won't bother with the movie.

    I started watching Euphoria. It's great so far. I love the production design and the cinematography is amazing!

    Has anyone watched Berlin Station? It's on EPIX and I don't know if I'm going to love it. I am desperately looking for CIA/MI6/spy shows to watch lately and they're few and far between. I even started watching reruns of NCIS because I'm at a loss...and suggestions are greatly welcomed.


    Anyway, I watched the first episode. It stars Richard Armitage, Rhys Ifans, and Richard Jenkins...and one of the chicks from True Blood...The Maenad.

    The Crown:

    Just posted in another thread, but I'm really liking the younger actors they selected for Charles and especially Anne. The older characters are good enough actors that I can buy them when I'm watching, but these two really do resemble a young Anne and Charles way more than the others do their characters.

    Anne is exactly how I'd expect her to be IRL. A badass from the get go.

    The Charles portrayal along with the Camilla storyline really makes you feel for him.

    Did they cover Anne’s attempted kidnap? It takes balls to tell a kidnapper “bloody likely” when he’s already shot 2-3 of your protection team

    I have another episode to watch but I have a feeling that where this season is going to end is right before that happened. But hopefully they will have this same cast for season 4 (they had the same cast for the first 2 seasons) and this will be the episode I'm waiting for!

    Binged the 3rd season of Atypical. Mostly great with some moments that were a bit stupid in the last episode. Still love the show so much. I'm even more used to Jennifer Jason Leigh's bad facelift. The girl who plays the sister is a rebelation. She's going places this one.

    Watched Tell Me Who I Am, the bf and I knew absolutely nothing about the story and I think that's the best way to watch it, it really hits hard.

    I'm also finally watching the Crown, my gods, it is so good. Claire Foy is brilliant but Matt Smith shows her up in all their scenes, what a talented man. And loved Jared Harris as King George, I could watch this man in anything.

    I have a love/hate thing with atypical. It’s really well acted but it’s also way too precious and I just can’t with Jennifer Jason Leigh’s character, mannerisms and her fucking destroyed face that gets worse every season. And Michael rappaport plays the same stupid character he always plays. Love the kids.

    i tried watching outlander because it’s been on my list for ages and I want to do very dirty things to tobias menzies but I kind of gave up after 3 episodes. I might pick it up again if I’m bored and don’t know what to watch, I don’t know, if just didn’t captivate me and caitriona balfe is kind of annoying and looks and acts like she belongs in those soft core erotic movies from the 70s and 80s that used to air on french TV late Sunday night. Should I stick with it?

    I have a soft spot for Outlander because I loved the books way back in the day, so I would say yes, but yes with the caveat that I really like to wallow in the history and mood of things like this and then project a bit of what I want to see rather than what is really happening.

    Caitriona's character is generally annoying in the books as well as the show...if I were to find myself in a strange time period, I wouldn't take the opportunity to show off my moxie and while it's cool she gets to do and say stuff that we'd all like to say to men then and now, it would have gotten her killed off by the second chapter/episode. And she does kind of overdo it with the "I'm so piquant and sultry" vibe.

    Tobias is great, but also incredibly gross as his bad persona...and nebbish as his good persona. But I've never seen him give a bad performance.

    I would say no, but just because I hated her character and her punchable face. I believe I watched two seasons and it was too much for me.

    I thought Catriona's character is better on the show than Claire is portrayed in the books. She's super irritating in the books. So maybe I set the bar low because she isn't quite that grating to me? My issues with the show are more on the Jamie side of things, tbh...and the episode-long, torture porn, rape scene flashback.
