    I'll definitely give it a look, though, as I've got all the episodes on my que.
    I actually have kinda noticed that a bit more. When you think about it, there's a lot more Brits on US tv, doing very well for themselves, than there has ever been before.

    I've watched the second episode, it wasn't as good as the first. It's like they put a lot more work into that first ep. I'll keep watching, though.

    Talking of Merchant; have you seen any of Karl's new show The Moaning of Life? Similar sort of concept as the Idiot Abroad stuff, except it's just Karl, going around different places trying to find how people fulfil their lives, etc. Trying to find the "meaning" of happiness, for example. I still enjoy Karl, I laughed at some of it.

    Plus, I'm entranced by pretty much anything and everything involving Stephen Graham, so I'm of course loving the hell out of all the Capone/Mueller stuff. Also, Herc from The Wire.
    Yeah, I don't mind them taking their time, I like it well built, a slow build; I think it's just that normally Boardwalk have a big pivotal moment near the beginning, I think I got used to it. I, too, can't wait for the inevitable intersecting of intense inter-gangland excitement. I always love to see how Richard Harrow will eventually play into things.

    Oh, same here brother. The Capone/Mueller stuff has been great. Mueller's slowly becoming what he used to despise. Graham's character's been loving the sniff-sniff as well, so you know the on-edge insanity from Capone is gonna get eaten up by Stephen Graham. Herc with hair, haha, good stuff.

    Jeffrey Wright seems to be having a great time with his Doctor, as well. He's doing it really well. Feel his presence when he's on screen. Really good.

    Yeah, I've seen 3 episodes now, and I just don't dig it. It's sporadically amusing and Merchant acquaints himself as a leading man well enough, but it's just completely missing the pathos that made Merchant and Gervais' collaborative efforts so special. As is, the show plays like an endless loop of awkward situations, and television is chock full o' shows already doing that shtick. Been there, done that (and better) just sort of permeates through the whole thing.

    No, but I'll definitely be on the lookout for it. Thanks for the heads-up.

    This was my favourite bit of last weeks episode. Just the bit when they say "fixings!"; I just about cried at that bit. And you can sorta see Danny McBride is nearly cracking up. Lol.

    So Mike and Molly returns tonight, and from all the previews, it seems like it is going in a COMPLETELY different direction. I'm not sure what to think, but I'm anxious to watch

    Is that direction away from cheap gags and towards more cerebral humour?

    Rewatching the old 2003 TMNT series for old times sake. Still find it better than the 2012 version.
