      Something Wicked This Way Comes...   10/09/2019

      The Autumn Supporter Giveaway!       Welcome to the very first of the seasonal BCF supporter giveaways! This month also marks one year since I took on the forum, so I want to say an extra huge thank you to all of you for keeping this place going. I have a little bit more to say about that later but, for now, let's get to the giveaway!     The Autumn Giveaway winner will be getting two Penguin Little Black Classics, The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and To Be Read At Dusk by Charles Dickens. Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically. If you aren't a patreon supporter but you'd like to join in with this giveaway, you can support here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum.   I really hope you're all going to like this introduction to the seasonal giveaways. It's been a lot of fun to put together. Other chocolate skulls may have been harmed during the selection process…

What Are You Watching Now? - 2017

Recommended Posts

I know what you mean, although I still enjoy it.  I have to say though, there were a couple of episodes in the current series that made me chuckle, so I'll carry on with it for the moment. :)

 

Have you seen Freaks and Geeks? A much better show imo. Too bad it was cut short because of the time's low ratings.

I'm sure you can find better things to watch him in  :smile:   The problem with The OA is that it flatters to deceive for the first three or four episodes and then descends into complete and utter drivel.  I don't think I've ever gone so quickly from being intrigued by a show to absolutely despising it  :giggle2:   But hey, knock yourself out.  And book some lessons in interpretive dance while you're at it  :banghead:  :giggle2:

 

I finished watching season 1 of Travelers last night.  Very enjoyable, really hope it gets another season.  And I'm up to Fringe 1x09  :smile:

 

 

Agree re OA, we watched the first few eps, and stopped. 

 

Loved Fringe! 

 

We watched a series called The Investigator: A British Crime Story.  It was good, if drawn out, but I wish it had been more conclusive.

 

Also watched a film called Trespass with Nicholas Cage and Nichol Kidman.  Very exciting. :)

Well, I love James so I may not be the best judge, but I'd definitely recommend it! :D  (Actually, OH likes it too, so it can't be that bad ;))

I've started watching Rizzoli & Isles.  I've never seen it before but love the book series so thought it was about time I watched it.  Only seen the first episode but I'm liking what I've seen so far.

We loved this series Autumn, bought all the DVDs and cannot wait to start watching them again.
