What's The Last TV Show You Watched?

Hannibal season 1 final. Great show. Can't imagine where they're going to go next season after that though! :shock:
(Doctor Who) has been hijacked and redefined as a lucrative modern franchise. They've literally taken a square peg and painfully made it fit a round hole by taking enormous liberties with much of its fundamental essence. There's no turning back now.

Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

The News at 6

Before that, an old episode of "Midsomer Murders" :shock: :D

I watched a documentary about people living with and being treated for obsessive compulsive disorder called 'OCD Ward'.

And previous to that 'Bigfoot Files' another documentary searching for proof of the existence of the 'Yeti'.

Someone is uploading to Youtube all the old Coronation Street episode that were repeated by Granada Plus in the 1990's. GP decided to start screening episodes from April 1976 at the point when Elsie Tanner returned after an absence of 3 years. I am currently up to July 1976.
My next door neighbour mixed up her KY jelly with the superglue. I asked her how she managed that but her lips are sealed.

Just seen the last episode of 'BigFoot Files'. This time round the documentary concerned the search of Russia for proof that their bigfoot exists. You can guess the outcome.

Not a patch on Arthur C.Clarke's 'Mysterious World' series.

QI, with Stephen Fry dressed as a king. On and off hilarious.

If they'd player "Royals" by Lorde it would have been even better.

I'm Alan Partridge (I don't actually mean that I'm Alan Partridge, that's the name of the program).

I was enjoying watching repeats of my favourite comedy 'Keeping up Appearances'.

Breaking Bad
"It can become a kind of franchise where it's not a real character at all, but just an amalgam of elements that people think are Doctor Who: a scarf, a bow tie... I wanted to be the actual Doctor Who." - Peter Capaldi

I still haven't watched that yet, or Game of Thrones, or Homeland, or Mad Men, or The Walking Dead, or any other supposedly great TV series of the last few years. No I haven't been living under a rock, nor have I gone out of my way to deliberately not watch these. I just haven't got around to it yet.

I think next season will be where everyone finds out Hannibal's a cannibal and season three will basically be Red Dragon/Manhunter. It won't be as good as Manhunter though, that film is a masterpiece (a very dated masterpiece, but a masterpiece non the less).

I watched one of the Joan Hickson Miss Maple's on BBC4 a few weeks back reminding me of what an excellent series it was. I wish the BBC would repeat them all again.

Wasn't Peter Davison in one of those Joan Hickson Miss Marple episodes? :?

"The Fall" parts 1 and 2, so far it's rather good.

That's it. I can remember the story had a rather eerie/chilling atmosphere,the maid's dead body strung up on the washing line by clothes pegs,the nursery rhyme 'Sing a Song of Sixpence' featured in it and obviously Davison. :)

The entire run of Joan Hickson Miss Maple adaptations were exceptionally good. A Murder Is Announced is a firm favourite of mine also Ursula Howells is very good in it. A Pocketful of Rye is another favourite of mine.
