What did you watch last week (w/e December 5)?

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.

It’s at this point I have to fess up and say I really haven’t watched that much TV this week, since I was away at the weekend, the new stuff I wanted to watch I’ve already reviewed and the new stuff I didn’t want to watch – well, I didn’t watch it. Also, almost everything good is now being shown on Sundays. That’s not helpful. I might have to move this back to Fridays.

But I will say that Community was great last week (anime!) as was Homeland; Dexter is frustratingly daft and poor; and Ringer didn’t have a bad mid-season finale.

No new movies. No new books. Sorry, again. Not been doing too well, have I? Sorry.

“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?
