    Not sure if it's out in a box set yet, but The Knick is one of the best TV series I've ever seen. It was on Sky Atlantic. Set in a NY hospital in 1901. Not seen US TV do period drama particularly well, but The Knick was fantastic. One critic called it 'anti-nostalgia' cos it doesn't show the past in a warm, fuzzy way. Opening scene of first episode was a Caesarian - 1901 style.

      That sounds interesting. I might have a look into that one.

        I remember seeing the promos for that. That's a bold statement, I will look for it on that recommendation.

          Speaking of Peter Capaldi, have you watched The Thick of It?

          Farscape is another classic and underated sci fi show. Once you get through the admittedly ropey first half of series one it really becomes one of the most compelling shows from the late 90s. Muppets and all.

          Yeah, I'm a geek.
          The thick of it, one of the best tv series the bbc has made possible ever.

          Peter Capaldi was truly magnificent in it!

            Got it on my Hard Drive so will give it a watch when I'm done with SOA. Quite like Clive Owen.

              It's all down to personal taste. I think Mad Men is just about the best television series I've ever seen (only recently bettered by The Knick IMO), so that probably gives you some idea what I enjoy watching.

                Isn't the first Capaldi series just on a mid season break?
                I thought it was back early part of 2015.
                Everything I've seen is that it's a full series break. Still would love to be pleasantly surprised by more Who.

                The fianc?e and I have started watching Penny Dreadful, fun so far in a slightly camp way. Plus, ya know, Eva Green.

                  Yes, my mistake. I've just read about it. Series 8 is finished.

                    Recently I finished watching Star Trek (TNG, DS9, Voyager, Enterprise) and I am planning to watch again The Original Series in not to distant future.
                    Except that Big Bang Theory, Breaking Bad and Orange is New Black... and I think I have a little bit series hangover, so time to read something.

                    2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
                    3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

                                Does it really? That's a bit annoying, you must be watching it always expecting the scene to have a twist.
