Gotham : Lovecraft

EDIT:Β This blog has been in the draft folders since the episode airedΒ here in the US, until today when I came to write about the new episode I was totally unaware I hadn’t published it. I apologize. It happens a lot with me.

In the thrilling mid-season finale we see Jim Gordon once more go up against the wrong people as he tries to take down Lovecraft.

The Walking Dead

It might not surprise anyone that I have a love/hate relationship with The Walking Dead. I loved the first season but by the second season I had a group of characters I just wanted to be killed off and the more they lived the more I got annoyed.

I only really watched bits and pieces after season two (its the same kind of thing I have with Game of Thrones just by now the thought of Game of Thrones makes me want to rip my own eyes out) so over Christmas (and yes I man over Christmas, it was all I did) I caught up with the whole series, even going as far as buying Season 4 myself as my mum didn’t own it so I couldn’t steal it to watch it.

Why am I babbling on about The Walking Dead?

Well it has gotten to the point where I kind of actually enjoy it. The worst culprit for “must die” did die (sorry Lori fans but I hated her!) and the others that annoyed me…. Don’t annoy me half as much. I never got the cool factor with Michone but now I love her for many different reasons, I still think Carl needs something horrible done to him but there is time. The only person left I think I want to actually die in the series is Glen because he’s such a bloody wet blanket.

And I’m till babbling.

The main point is that I’ll be doing a “catch up” of Season 5 and when the second half of Season 5 starts to air I will be reviewing it.

I’ll be posting the reviews on Friday’s hopefully, as long as I don’t have much trouble and I’ll be then writing the rest up as I get to watch them when they come out.

Still Open All Hours : Episode 1

After a good Christmas special last year we get a full series to look forward to this year.

“Open All Hours” was one of my all time favourite comedies and I liked the special, I felt it was a little flat but still quite sweet. So I was extremely happy to see a whole series being made. Hopefully it fares better then the special.
