    I watched 2 others, Forks over Knives and fat, sick and nearly dead. Both worth the watch for me. Loved the big pharma connections :p makes life make sense when Im not the only nutter hating on them.

    I've been watching the new TNT drama Claws, starring Reno 911's Niecy Nash. I've always been a fan of hers, and she's absolutely hilarious. But here, she bring her dramatic chops to this series about a group of women who work at a nail salon (including Judy Reyes from Scrubs, and Carrie Preston from True Blood) who enter the male world of organized crime by laundering money for the neighborhood clinic. The show has it's funny moments, but the emotional center are these wonderfully complex women that are just trying to get by in life living in the lower class. Billed as "Breaking Bad for the ladies", it even stars Dean Norris from Breaking Bad as the coke-head drug boss, and his son is played by none other than Kevin Rankin (AKA Tara's brother from "Family"). I'm enjoying it so far. It isn't perfect, but god is it entertaining.

    Been watching Claws too. Carrie Preston steals pretty much every scene she's in (per usual).

    Been watching the new season of Orphan Black, which is A+. Also almost done Gypsy, which I'm liking more than I thought I would.

    In the Dark - New BBC Crime drama which is off to a very impressive start. Good character depth, gritty and stylish, and a subtle lead performance.

    Jonathan Creek Series 1 - These spoofs on the old murder mysteries/b-style stories are right up my alley. Love the deadpan humour, and chemistry between the leads. The cases themselves are very tightly crafted, and good fun. Fun fact ASH is in the pilot:p

    I was excited because of Keegan Michael Key but the reviews are not so good at all. I'm gonna need some serious recommendations to watch it now.

    Right now I have been re-watching Dr. Who. I'm up to The Runaway Bride :)

    I've started watching iZombie - I've only watched the first episode and I'm not that impressed. It was entertaining but average. I've heard such good things about it though so I think I will watch a few more episodes at least to give it a chance.

    I heard it was a bit of a slow start but improves after that. Its on my list too.

    Seinfeld season 6
    The greatest ever season imo. The Label Maker is probably the best ever episode too:)

    All the buzz about Dunkirk got me back to watching Band of Brothers. The next episode I watch will be the Battle of the Bulge. I haven't seen the series in years but I remember that episode being my favorite. My grandfather was at that battle.

    Been watching Horace and Pete. It has definitely surprised me. The subjects brought up are so boldly realistic, and I find the ideas and dialogue stuck in my head for days after watching.

    Sense8 season 2 - I can see why they blew the budget on this show. Lots of parties. I hope it has a good ending in the end episode next year. And is this scottish man legit scottish? He is cute. I've not finished s2 yet, the beta blockers make me crave them lol
