What shows i’m watching at the moment

Because why wouldn’t you want to know.


On the 7th season

Normally if i had missed the first four season of a show, i would just leave it be. But once House moved on to sky, i thought i’d give it a try. I’m glad i did, some may say it’s too formulaic but Hugh Laurie makes it worth the obvious plot lines, every week. Just a good show.


Now on it's 3rd season

Bored to death

Another predicable show but with great characters. Like x-files in many, many ways which would be bad if i had not like x-files so much.

Just starting out

I’v only watch two episodes of the first season, but so far it’s a great little show, which i would have most likely missed my radar entirely, if one of the stargate producer and writers was not working on this show.

Boardwalk empire

Another first season show

I’m still not sure about this show. It’s style is amazing and the effort and detail they have gone too make it look like 1920’s America……. well it’s staggering. The acting form the lead is so-so, but a lot of the other people on the show are great. Sometimes it get’s a little complected, with too many story’s at one time. Willing to give this show to the end of the season at least.


Season 4

Probably one of my favorite show on TV, really funny, good action and great acting.
The Event

The first season

A little bit out there and very clichéd. Though it is good TV, and i’m very interested to learn more about the Aliens.

True Blood

Season 333333............blood

Family guy may have said it’s only for “rich gay guys” but i’m neither Gay or rich and i love this show. Season 3 has just finished but i have one more episode to watch, i can’t wait to see it.

That’s it for show i’m currently watching, but in the next week or two,  2 more show are starting.

Stargate Universe

Second season

Just see my last post https://joelhopkins.wordpress.com/2011/04/05/6-days-from-now/

Game of Thrones

Looks fucking amazing

How good does this show look? (that is rhetorical). Not only does it look fucking amazing, but is stars Sean Bean. Just slightly worried i have hyped it up, in my own mind to much.

So do you recommend any other show?

Joel’s best of 2010!

Looking back the last year what are the best things of 2010 for me, in the form of a Interview.

1. Favourite album of 2010?
This one either between the Mt desolation album or the arcade fire album. Ummmm Arcade fire!

2.Favourite Television show?
Going to have to be Stargate universe of course. Outside of stargate? Walking Dead has been great real surprise hit for me this year, the event also had been very good.

3. Best Music gig I went to?
MUSE at old Trafford cricket ground. Really amazing and with support from Pulled apart by horses, band of skulls and the editors, awesome.

4. Best place I have been to?
Vancouver was lovely place, very beautiful, not loads and loads to do there and I had to sleep on sofa but was nice to see some place new.

5. Best Meal?
I had a crazy good chocolate pudding at this place near Huddersfield!

6. Best book i read?
Ohhh I have read a lot of books this last year. Children of Dune was a good read, well better than good. Boneshaker is another one I loved. There was also the novelette by John Sclazi -The God engines. I think Children of Dune takes the award though.

7. Best thing someone bought me?
I PAD !!! :)

8. Best thing i bought myself?
I got a nice coat!

9. The Best thing’s i have done this year?
I have really enjoyed doing this blog, while it’s not the most read thing on the internet (understatement) it been fun doing it. I had a good time at this years leeds festival but it was nowhere near as good as the one in 2009. I have wrote a few short story’s some on this blog. I made some progress on my novel but no where near the amount I wanted.

10. What I want to happen in 2011?
Some more writing, a job hopefully also a girlfriend would be nice. I would like some of the collaboration I have planned to come to fruition, me and a friend have a Andy Kaufman style play in the works which could be a lot of fun to do. I also want Leeds Rhinos to win the super league, challenge cup and the league leaders shield!

11. What I have planned for my blog in 2011?
Same sort of thing that i have being doing last year, a lot of nonsense, some top 5’s and maybe some more short story’s.
