Lol I am still watching it, just started second series, I watch one or two in an evening, when I can. Been a busy weekend tho and not had chance to even turn on the TV :@)

Having a proper day off today, it's so tiring doing stuff lol.

If it quacks like a duck....it probably is...if it doesn't come with "..." quotations!

I've embarked on "Happy Valley" on Netflix and enjoyed every second. Very British in the best possible sense, and has had me hanging from the edge of the sofa! Worth the watch

I'm currently revisiting a 90's Scifi series via I-tunes- Babylon 5. For all the wooden acting and clunky sets it's a genuinely good series set over a longer story arc with some pretty cutting edge (for the time) CGI. Just started season 4 (out of 5).

As if I didn't have enough catching up/checking out to do already - I must have the first couple of episodes of at least 20 promising TV series to investigate - yesterday I decided I might like to watch Fortunes of War (Kenneth Branagh) all over again to see if it was as enjoyable as I remember, so I downloaded the 7 episodes from youtube.

Talk about Groundhog Day , I watched Casualty whilst with the rellies on Saturday- it hasn't changed at all since it's inception- same old Charlie Fairhead, talking to people whilst looking away from them. Eastenders (always hated that one), Corrie..dull. I even spent a few minutes watching Neighbours. No Des or Dapne...or Bouncer Paul Robinson and Toadie still in it though.

The cream of British telly
