TV CatchUp – Justified & Mentalist

Have not started anything new on the gaming front since completing Portal instead I've been catching up on episodes of Justified & Mentalist.

I very rarely watch weekly episodes of any tv series with Games of Thrones being the only exception. I usually tend to have a fortnight cycle so I can watch two episodes together.

Timothy Olyphant was excellent in Deadwood & carries on his great acting in Justified playing the role of Deputy US Marshall Rayland Givens. I also like the Boyd Crowder character played by actor Walton Goggins.

There are only 13 episodes per season with no what I like to call filler episodes (the episodes which do not contribute to the main story through the season).

I've also been catching up on Mentalist which has also been renewed for another season. I still feel they should have ended the show with the culmination of the Red John story.

Unlike Justified, Mentalist has quite a few filler episodes (this happens with all shows that have a 20+ season run of episodes) I tend to get bored with longer run episode shows after a couple of seasons & give up but I have stuck with the Mentalist. I'm hoping the renewal for next season gives the writers a chance to end the series.





TV – What I’m watching?

Currently I'm watching the following shows

Doctor Who - Hoping Capaldi takes the role into a more serious note.

Person of Interest - Very apt in the light of PRISM

Sherlock - The new series with Benedict Cumberbatch is must watch TV.

Hell on Wheels - Western series about the construction of the US railroad.

Game of Thrones - Dragons, Wars & the White Walkers are coming !!

Mentalist - Jane is a psychic and after getting revenge on Red John he has now joined the FBI.

Sons of Anarchy - The trials & tribulations of a motorcycle club in the town of Charming.

Justified - Starring Timothy Olyphant who done a great job on Deadwood plays the part of a Kentucky sheriff.

Walking Dead - Zombies, zombies & more zombies !!

Arrow - Superhero shooting um ... arrows?

Big Bang Theory - The best comedy show since The IT Crowd.

Grimm - Just started watching this recently it's about supernatural beings and an investigate cop who can see them.

Revolution - Annoyingly has been cancelled after Season 2, I've watched Season 1 so will continue watching.

Rectify - After spending years on death row, Daniel is let out & returns to his hometown. This is really good the first series was only six episodes but I enjoyed it.

I've watched  a lot of tv series over the years Breaking Bad & Deadwood were amazing, Lost I got  um lost..? Fawlty Towers & IT Crowd are brilliantly funny but nothing annoys me more than when the US TV networks don't renew a series I am enjoying like Revolution, Jericho, Pushing Daisies, Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles, Stargate Universe & of course X-Files. This is why I usually never watch a new TV series until I know it has been renewed for Season 2. I wish the US networks would give a show they want to cancel a six episode final season run to tie up loose ends.
