Ha ha, Sonko.

Well I thougt the first episode was brilliant!

I'm tempted to watch another but It's getting late and I want to have a good read in bed.

Mr Makybe is away till a week tomorrow so I will have plenty of time to watch them.

I will order seasons 2 and 3 tomorrow. I don't want to run out!

The brilliant thing about BB is that you watch an episode and when it ends you just sit there not quite believing what you've just witnessed. Then you think, a) there's no way they can better that, b) where can the storyline develop from this. And then it does develop ( and how ) and gets better and better. Incredible writing,filming,acting and direction.fully deserved of every critics plaudits and award won.

I love The Sopranos, watched it so many times I probably need professional help. Always considered it the best if nothing else because any show that has regular characters as painfully annoying as AJ, Meadow, Carmela, Tonys mum, Janice and yet still be top viewing must be doing right. Struggle to find many characters in tv history with funnier lines than Uncle Junior!

Enjoyed Breaking Bad but never felt the need to watch it again, it's a very slow burner but some of the episodes are as good as anything i've ever seen and make it worth it. Skyler is annoying as hell though and Walt Jr must be one of the most pointless characters ever.

The Wire is a classic, runs The Sopranos very close. Think the season that focuses on the newspaper stops it from being the best but that's just my opinion and even then it was decent enough. The schools part didn't do anything for me either but I suppose it was an important part when you take the show as a whole.

Game of Thrones is enjoyable even if the storyline is a bit daft and there's a lot of stuff just for the sake of it. The latest season was dull viewing for 6 or 7 episodes and I felt like throwing the towel in, but then comes up with a couple of belters.

Sons of Anarchy flits between being entertaining and laughably bad. A show for the sort of people who watch Channel 5. Charlie Hunnan is an awful actor, that hard man swagger thing he does makes me cringe.
