Looking forward to it then. Seen it pimped enough to finally give it a watch and the length of The Shield and The Wire is putting me off wanting to watch 'em in spite of the fact I'm certain I'll be a big fan of both.

Agreed on Rashida Jones atm. Stunning woman and going neck and neck with Aubrey Plaza for my favourite gal on the show. Leslie's dress was also superb for the wedding.

POI
Spoiler for poi:
My favourite episode of the entire series and they basically neglected the entire main cast for 90% of the episode. How many other shows could even try that let alone pull it off. Those god damn motherfuckers. The premise of the episode in itself was magnificent but the new chick they brought in to play Shaw was crazy good. Every bit as badass as Reese and HOT? Hot damn. I was literally freaking out the entire episode from the fucking opening credits getting fucked over. Honest to god might be my favourite episode of any show ever. Man I so hope Shaw becomes a semi regular character at least from here. Cutting bullets out of her victim so she doesn't leave a trace? Shoving grenades up a guys gas mask? That iron scene with Root? Heart. Taken. Temporarily stomped on for a second when it looked as though they'd killed her off. Just for a brief second I thought they'd actually killed her off because this show has never shied back from killing off major antagonists without a second thought for them. Then Fusco and Carter turned up and I was freaking out again. Loved Leon's little cameo too. They need more of their past characters to randomly turn up to help them out like Leon does. Shaw as Reese's second in the future is something I'd go crazy for. I love how even in an episode this intense they can throw in enough POI style humour with Finch and Reese. Finch's "do you think she'll call us a taxi?" at the end was classic POI. I love the names they come up with for these secret departments too. HR. Control. So in one episode they took maybe the dullest plot of the POI universe and made it the most exciting one. THIS SHOW. I was relieved when Shaw shot the Control guy at the party too because I'm not sure I could take him seriously as a long term antagonist. Anyone's who watched Boardwalk Empire will know why. That was pointless. Cal doesn't watch it and we're the only troopers watching this. God damn it. This show might have just surpassed Ashes To Ashes/Life On Mars for best soundtrack ever too. The Kills at the end? Perfection. They get the track at the end of the episode on the money so often. One day I'll get Craig to watch this and he'll search this post out and smile.

I might have to actually watch BSG to get Eric and Bubz to watch POI. Damn it. My favourite show running right now other than Parks. Incredible.

PARKS
Spoiler for parks:
The Wedding was beautiful. I love how Parks can go from hysterical comedy to an episode like that completely based around soppy emotions and character work. Chris' wedding present to Ben was the nicest thing ever. Loved the flashbacks too. Subtle and sweet. 2nd episode was more vintage Parks. Glorious. I didn't think it was feasible for Season 5 to out do Season 4 but it's done it already. Jerry gags galore and they never get old. Jerry standing in the corner having to turn down the desserts only to find the script in his shoe later. Classic. Chris is quickly becoming my favourite character this season. Clearly been going to the Adam Scott school of facial expressions. On it like a car bonnet in those 2 episodes this week. Possibly the best Chris moment ever when Ann says she's running to a meeting with Ron and Chris thinks it's a great idea and starts sprinting down the halls. Classic. Ron and Ann's scenes have been great this season and came out of nowhere. Is there even a less than brilliant dynamic between two characters or a dynamic that's too similar? THIS SHOW. PERD HAPLEY cameo. Nailed it. Again. Rashida Jones is mad cute right now too. If I made an EP I'd totally write her a whole rap. Man I hope that didn't go over everyone's heads. Love you and like you.
I watch them both, going to watch the most recent episodes soon.

POI is brilliant. Haven't seen the most recent episode, but season 2 is probably my favorite season of any show so far this year.

The Wire is long and slow...but never gets boring. And to be honest its only about 60 episodes so NOT too long

Just finished the first season of Spartacus, and I was reasonably impressed. It was shite at first, but as the various sub-plots began to flourish, it really improved. Shame about the lad that died. Was reading about him and he seemed like a really decent fella.

***SPOILER***

Bit sad that John Hannah won't be in it anymore, and also Lucy Lawless, though I am delighted I got to see Xena's tits.

Does anyone here watch Parks and Recreation? If so, how do you feel about Tom, because I have literally never hated a TV character more in my life

Yeah Parks is very popular around here. Don't see the Tom hate. Find him to be a wonderful satire of the hipster douchebag personality and think he's a well written character when you consider some of the stories he's been involved in and the development from Season 1-Season 5 where he's grown in terms of maturity and business aspirations. He plays off of the others very well and the Ann relationship and more importantly any and all scenes with Jean Ralphio earn him immunity from being hated.

Jamm is the only muck savage on the show. Everyone else is a treasure.

Ahh, that's a very well reasoned argument. However, he is fucking irritating. I would enjoy everything a lot more if he just never appeared.

He can be irritating, but tbh that's the point of the character. He's meant to be this social media obsessed hipster who tries to play up the lavvish lifestyle and can rub people the wrong way. It makes the moments he shows maturity or emotion feel more significant since we know he can be smart and make rational thoughts that aren't related to celebrities for example.
