What did you watch last week (w/e October 21)?

Time for “What did you watch last week?”, my chance to tell you what I watched last week that I haven’t already reviewed and your chance to recommend things to everyone else (and me) in case we’ve missed them.

My recommendations for maximum viewing pleasure this week: Dexter, Modern Family, Happy Endings, Homeland, Suburgatory and Community.

Things you might enjoy but that I’m not necessarily recommending: Being Erica, House and Ringer.

In the backlog: Once Upon A Time episode 1 and I should be letting you know what I thought of episode 3 of American Horror Story in a moment or two (fingers crossed).

A few things I’ve given a try this week:

  • Spy: We watched the rest of episode 1 of this, which was okay, but when we started on episode two, we discovered life was too short and gave up on it. Intriguingly, Darren Boyd gives exactly the same performance in this that he does on Safety Catch.

I didn’t watch any movies last week, I’m afraid. I’ve probably left something off the list, too.

“What did you watch last week?” is your chance to recommend to friends and fellow blog readers the TV and films that they might be missing or should avoid – and for me to do mini-reviews of everything I’ve watched. Since we live in the fabulous world of Internet catch-up services like the iPlayer and Hulu, why not tell your fellow readers what you’ve seen so they can see the good stuff they might have missed?

    My wife has “Once Upon A Time” in the queue too. She saw “Train Man: Densha Otoko” and it was okay. I expected it to be quite missable but I have to concede it was fairly well done if light-hearted Japanese romance is your thing.
    “House” is coming along okay; mildly implausible at points (Foreman as Dean of Medicine? Quite a career jump.), but could have been worse.
    “CSI” is coming along okay, too; a bit dramatic this latest one, but overall I’m liking this series enough to rank it above the average crime procedural.
    I wonder what else I watched. Obviously it didn’t make much of an impression, whetever it was.

  • House is okay at the moment.
    The show I forgot was The Walking Dead, which I’m not enjoying quite as much as last year’s series, primarily I think because it’s ambling a bit, lacking the drive of the previous episodes. Still scary at times though.
