Not much fantasy stuff to watch lately. I gave Tomorrow People a go (never expected that to get a reboot!), but found it quite weak and kicked it to the curb after a few eps, same with agents of Shield. True Detective was awesome, also quite enjoyed Black Sails. Watched the Hobbit 2: Desolation of Smaug. Hated it.

We've just started watching Tomorrow People - I never saw that orginal or the 1990's redo (not sure if Elfy ever watched it either), but it's not rally all that interesting to me.  I'm not 100% sure of scientific naming, but would homo sapiens and homo superior be classed as different species??  It sets off my "wrongness" vibe whenever they mention it.

Other things we're watching in genre - Grimm, Once Upon a Time - very different versions of fairy tales, we both prefer Grimm of the two.  Game of Thrones (of course  ;)), Revolution (which we'll watch to the edn of this season, and then abandon, unless something extraordinary happens in the last 5 eps), Agents of SHIELD (which has gotten better in the last couple of episodes, but it was a struggle to get that far).

I've been watching The 100. I really like it. Makes me curious how the book is (and if I should have read that before watching).

Oh, watched the first episode of Penny Dreadful yesterday, and I really liked it :D lots of future potential.

Just finished season 4 of Breaking Bad a few hours ago. Wow. I'm afraid they're gonna screw it up like they did after the explosion of Dexter's season 4.

No worries. It's one of the best series endings I've seen.

Yesterday I watched Underworld for the first time - a friend said that it's part of the fantasy musts, and I was lacking, hehe

My parents are in love with the first Underworld. I much prefer the second one.

About halfway through season 5 of BB. Don't know how anyone could doubt this season. It's fantastic.

I'll get back to you when I watch that one :)
(and I've just noticed your age - your parents must be about my age, or, potentially, younger :o - age must play a factor hehe)

Watched the first couple of episodes of The 100, which was amusing enough - although I suspect we got most of our enjoyment out of predicting what was about to happen and then howling with amusement when it did.

Hannibal (up to episode 4 of series 2) continues to be both crazpypants and incredibly tense - beautiful telly. The first couple of episodes of Penny Dreadful have been great too, can't wait to see where they take all this.
