I'm re-watching for the gazzillionth time 'Allo'Allo. I love this show so much, it never stops being funny, no matter how many times I watch it.

And alo started with Orange Is The New Black, heard a lot of great things about it and I'm the mood for something a bit more light-weight, so I'm giving it a try.

'Allo 'Allo was brilliant. It's funny that it was funny as each character pretty much had one catchphrase of shtick about them that they kept repeating but somehow it stayed funny. Officer Crabtree used to have me in stitches when I was a kid, and still does.

I was watching Carnivale which to my disgust was cut after 2 seasons and never even got close to anything resembling a resolution.

Typical HBO - they did the same to Deadwood and Rome. Bastards!

Not seen 24 mentioned much here. It's a cheesy and predictable series but a lot of fun. Just finished the new series and I enjoyed it. Actually felt different from their previous ones, no doubt due to the fact it was set in London and was set over 12 hours rather than 24 so it lacked the stretched-out nature other series have had. Was quite enjoyable.

Starting with Dreadful Penny. Let's see if it is as good as they say.

Yepp, my bad. A friend who recommended it to me kept saying "Dreadul Penny" and it got stuck in my head so as far as I know myself, from this point on, I will never get it right.

Haha, I just kept imaging a very menacing penny. "Pick me up bitch and I kick your ass".

Anyway, what do you think of it? I am wondering if I should start the series, but I don't like the era/atmosphere. It has to have a really good plot for me to get into it.

Haha, thank you for that vivid picture.

Well, I can't really say much, because I've only watched 2 episodes so far. I find it intriguing because I do like the victorian era. The central plot seems rather basic to me, but the thing that keeps me on my toes is that it is very dense, it has many additional layers and interesting characters, who - I assume - will (some already have) build collateral story lines to the main idea. I find it rather interesting how they took well established characters (Victor Frankenstein, Dorian Grey, Mina Harker) and blended in original ones (Vanessa Ives). The portrayal of several characters is also superb, so casting team did a very fine job. And I love how the imagery is veiled in darkish Tim Burton (think Sweeney Todd) colours and also that several moments totally surprised me, while in other I was expecting something totally vile will occur, but they ended in rather romantic and serene manner. From my point of view - so far, so good.

And now I've said way much than I thought I would.

Yeah, I see. The whole victorian/gothic/Tim Burton stuff really doesn't work with me. I guess I'm going to pass on this one.

I'm kinda stuck in a weird phase where I don't want to start anything because I know I'll get addicted to it. So I'm just re-watching old funny stuff that won't get to my head and keeps my mood afloat.
