      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.

What Are You Watching Now? - 2017

Recommended Posts

I haven't watched anything in the New Year yet, but it seemed time for new threads. Post here any TV shows or episodes, or the like, that you've been watching.

 

This January we're planning to continue watching Star Trek: The Next Generation season 2.

Last thing I watched on tv was the New Years Day Mrs Brown's Boys special, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It's silly humor, I really only watch it coz I like the characters, but there were some genuinely very funny parts in this ep!

 

Also nearly finished my rewatch of The Next Generation - I'm in the second half of the final season. I had hoped to be finished before Christmas, but moving got in the way.

A lot of xmas specials - Last Tango in Halifax, Grantchester, Yonderland, Strictly, etc. Watched the last ep of Divorce, which was fun. Blitzed through the 10 eps of Westworld in about 5 days before it disappeared from catch-up and absolutely loved it! Started This is Us, which is pretty good so far. Still got lots to catch up with though as there was so much good stuff on the box over the festive period.

I'm watching Freaks and Geeks. Such a great show! Kylie, 'Logan' was in the show, too :D He played a minor character in one episode: he was a guy from a rivaling high school and he and his crew through sodas at the McKinley freaks :D

I love this show! I used to watch it when I was a teenager (I think). A great show.

Oh yay, I didn't know you've seen it, too! :smile2: I don't think any of my friends (in Finland) have watched it, so I'm always surprised and excited to hear someone's seen the series! :smile2:  I had such a huge crush on the character played by Seth Rogen... :blush::D

I don't know many people either who've seen it! I liked Seth Rogan's character :).

I wish they'd made more seasons, I can't believe it all ended after only one season :(

Kindred spirits we are!!! I absolutely LOVE those shows! I did a Midsomer marathon yesterday.

 

I'm currently watching Murder She Wrote. It's been almost two months since it was on television because Hallmark Channel ran 24/7 Christmas specials.

I watched Diagnosis Murder early this morning, lol! And I've also watched Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries!! There's just nothing like a "GOOD" mystery that doesn't have to be uber graphic. When I sit down to watch them, its like sitting with old friends.

I'm still working through Inspector Lewis. Very intellectual and I really enjoy the settings.

I started watching Pretty Little Liars at the start of the year - I think I may have mentioned I had been thinking of watching it previously.  I find I have to limit myself to one episode per night though because otherwise I would end up binge watching it and I wouldn't get anything else done.  Only 7 episodes in so far but I have to say I'm quite enjoying it.

WAYYY! :o He must've been young but he totally looked like Logan. Only younger. But not like a 12yo-young. He was playing a high school student. I think he was playing someone who was 16-17 years old or something. I have to google how old the actor is... Okay he was born in 1977 (he looks our age, not -77!! :o ), so when the series was filmed, he was ... 22-23 :o  Oh wow, he'll be 40 this year!! When he played Logan, he was... 26? Okay, so he is a young face and plays younger-than-he-really-is characters.

I've been hearing about Sherlock non-stop, so have decided to finally give it a go. Seen a couple of episodes and I'm quite enjoying it. I kind of like having plenty of episodes to binge on while the new season is still being released :)

I'm still working my way through Season 4 of Elementary, on DVD.  Jonny Lee Miller's interpretation of Holmes is endlessly entertaining!  I miss Rhys Ifans' Mycroft, though; I wish he could come back to the series, although I know it's unlikely.  He was a blast.  :D

One of my colleagues at work is watching Spaced for the first time (after me pestering him for years because I knew he'd love it) so we're rematching it ourselves so I can chat about it with him and know the details of each episode!  Another convert :lol:
