What did you watch last week (w/e November 27)?

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.

The A-Team: Misfits, Modern Family, Happy Endings, Homeland, Suburgatory and Community.

The B-Team: Dexter, House, Rev and Ringer.

So, if you read the comments section of last week’s "What did you watch last week?", you’ll know I gave up on Hell on Wheels. I’ve managed to maintain the strength to avoid Burn Notice, but that’s probably because it was Thanksgiving in the States last week so it wasn’t on. That basically leaves the above

So a few thoughts on what was on last week:

  • Dexter: Possibly the most boring season of Dexter ever.
  • Happy Endings: Starting to feel not so much like the new Friends as a younger Cougar Town. Funny, but needs to get its edge back.
  • Homeland: Ooh, twisty twisty. Again, its 24 roots were showing, but I liked what happened otherwise I would have felt suckered by the previous weeks we’ve been watching. Excellent TV.
  • Rev: Not so good last week. Tried to do horror and be scary. Failed.

This week, again, nothing in the movies or books section, since I’m still reading Mark Kermode’s book. I have missed an awful lot in the cinema though, including The Rum Diary, Contagion and Immortals. Anyone seen them?

"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?

    I’m still making my way through “Foyle’s War” which is okay enough at the moment.
    I’m finally finishing off “Caprica” which is not too bad. It doesn’t much emphasize the things that might have interested me more but, well, it’s only a season, so not too great an investment.
    The same for “Charlie Jade”. I’ve been working through that, and, despite its faults, so far it does seem worth the time of the one season it has. It has some silliness, but one can accept it and move on. At least the premise is a bit different to normal fare, and as with “District 9” it’s interesting to see the little differences in South Africa.
    The latest “Community” and “House” I saw were okay.
