    VB, check out HBO's True Detectives (Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson). That's my new addiction.

    Yeah, caught the second episode rerun by chance. Liked it. Will settle down to see the whole thing. Strong cast.

    Betrayal is probably going to be cancelled by ABC. Ratings have been a dud.

    Finally watched Season 1 (and Season 2 up to current episode) of Orphan Black.

    All I can say is Tatiana Maslany is one talented actor.

    I have watched numerous movies/TV series about twins/triplets...clones etc....where one actor plays more than one role. However, what makes Tatiana different is that she makes me forget she is playing all these numerous roles.

    It amazes me when I see a scene with 3 or 4 of the clones and you totally forget that she is playing all the roles....mannerisms, accents, looks, carriage, inflections... everything is different for each clone. She nails it effortlessly and you think you are watching 3-4 different actors playing the parts. To me that is talent right there.

    Never tried Orphan Black. Maybe I should look into it.

    I'm watching a lot of Anime these days though...

    Chiny... great find. The show is brilliant. Dayum, can that girl act or what? It's incredible when there are her 'different versions' in one scene.
    How did she not get nominated for an Emmy? Ah the voting process na load of junk anyway!

    I am glad you liked it VB.

    Do you have any recommendations (TV series =) for me?

    I activated my TV series binge-watching mode in June and it will last till the beginning of the new TV season in Sept.

    I have caught up with the new season of 24. I am currently going through House of Cards.


    BTW have you seen the trailer for Gotham? It looks promising.


    Gotham Synopsis:

    "Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker? [Read the rest of the synopsis under the following link:

    I just started watching 'Tyrant' and 'The Last Ship'. Did you do 'Banshee' or 'True Detective'?
