The Forsyte Saga (with DI Lestrade)
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

Finished Season 3 of Downton Abbey. Looking forward to the next season.

Watched The Campaign which, while not entirely to my taste, was funny and took plenty of shots at the madness of political campaigning in our country.

I watched Argo last night and as I wrote in another post...I don't think it deserved best movie Oscar. It was a watchable movie, but that's about it.

Needed a lift, so watched the SF inspired romp Paul. Funny. I'm sure I missed over half the SF allusions>

We got Flight through Netflix. Big snorefest which was disappointing because I love Denzel!

Oh WOW!I was looking forward to seeing that one. I love Denzel too, but I'll still watch it when it is released on DVD.

So not as interesting as Seth McFarlene's take on it from the Oscars?

I've not long returned from a trip to New York, and on the flight back I watched Breakfast at Tiffany's for the first time - loved it! Already ordered myself a copy :p
Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me; I may not lead.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Over the weekend I watched 'World Without End' and all I can say is save your money! I quite enjoyed 'Pillars of the Earth' but the sequel to it simply bored me and the acting forgettable.

I have now ordered 'Mrs Brown Boys' season 3 and think the actor Brendan O'Carroll is a comedic genius. It's not to everyone's taste but I love it.

I also ordered 'Ripper Street' and hope it's not a lemon!

I don't think WWE was a patch on Pillars...I watched the first two and then missed two, but picked it up again for the last two, it was OK but not brilliant.

I enjoyed Ripper Street but some of the stories are a bit hit and miss - the 3 main characters are probably the best things in it, and their own stories are quite interesting, and the clothes are fab! It's not a cosy drama though so be warned, it's pretty violent.

I think Labyrinth (based on Kate Mosse's book) is starting here soon, at last.
