    Some TV recommendations

    Two shows I can highly recommend so far:

    The Killing - adapted from a Danish (I think) story about a girl who is murdered and each episode follows a day in the investigation. Very well made, acting is very good too.

    Game of Thrones - Quite a few English actors in this and superbly made. Only watched two episodes so far but it looks amazing and really getting into it.


    I've been told Boardwalk Empire is meant to be very good too (has Steve Buscemi in) but haven't got around to watching that yet.
    Are there any others people could recommend...outside of the usual sci-fi/copshow stuff

    Spartacus - it's 1000x better than babestation, and I can happily watch it without a guilt trip from the missus!

    Game of Thrones is really good - I thought it was a bit slow at the beginning, but it's really picked up pace now! The tricky bit is learning who all the characters are..!

    Spartacus is also great - and as Hightower says, it's not pron, it's just a scene in a tv show...!

    It is brilliant but I'm surprised you couldn't tell it was Swedish! Did you not do that at school.

    Luther starts again on BBC next Tuesday. The last series was excellent and had Idris Elba from The Wire in it. Now that was a classic.

    The Killing is Danish. Based in Copehagen. If you remember, Sarah Lund had a new job in Stockholm but kept putting it off because of the investigation.

    The characters were excellent, as were the twists and turns. I'd suspected Vagn from early on but there were so many red-herrings I was never sure.

    Apparently, there's a new series in the Autumn.

    How about the Shadow Line? Only one episode to go and I'm still non the wiser!

    Well, I guess I don't need to watch it now!

    My Bad MK-2 and lazerblazer! I only did Welsh in school.

    I watched it all and knew that but my head was thinking of "The Girl with the dragon tattoo" which I watched recently.

    no need to apologise to me, i only knew it was adapted from Danish from a review, not because I'd seen the original. So I still have no idea who committed the murder in the American version and do not want to know outside of the program

    Sorry about that but to be honest, it didn't really matter who did it, still well worth watching if it's on again. If it's an Amercanised version, they'll change the plot completely anyway.
