    Loved season 1 and 2 of BSG. I felt season 3 went off the rails a bit with all the religious gobledy-gook. Season 4 has been a total write off so far. It feels like the writers have no ideas at all anymore and they're just flinging out random plot twists in some sort of delaying action until they can put something cohesive together again.

    It's not been up there with the best yet, I agree.

    For Christ's sake, there's only been 3 bloody episodes so far. Give them time to actually construct a plot. Season 3 was a bit off, but only because of those damned characterization episodes and that trial that put the main plot in a standstill. I still liked it, though.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm still enjoying it thus far. The great thing about BSG is that there is rarely, if ever, a bad episode.

    Has anyone seen In Treatment? I watched one episode but I don't know whether it's worth watching the rest of the episodes. It's a bit neurotic.

    Yeah, only 3 episodes so far and it's already derailed itself. Remember season 1 and 2? The Cylons have a plan and all that? So, what's the plan then? randomly reveal Galactica crew as Cylons for shock value and then launch a Cylon civil war?

    Makes no sense. The series has definitely jumped the shark.

    Just started watching season 6 of Foyle's War. Good stuff. I do prefer the first few seasons when the storylines take place right after the fall of France and the debacle at Norway. The show does a great job of portraying the fear and uncertainty that must've pervaded Britain when they realized that they and the Commonwealth were basically alone in the fight and they were losing. 8/10

    Also just watched a few documentaries. Slaughter at Omaha Beach was the story of a German machine gunner who was responsible for killing between 1200-2000 Americans during the landings. Not very well presented though. 5/10

    Rivers of Blood was a two-parter that looks at the infamous speech delivered by Enoch Powell about what he perceived as the threat of mass immigration to Britain. It shows how much of the speech was ignored and the more controversial parts were repeated by the Brit tabloid press at the time (very similar to FOX News and the way they handle Obama and R. Wright) and then goes on to show how much of what Powell predicted seems to have come true. 7/10

    Sorry I can't remember the title, but I watched a CBC documentary on the way food is grown, speculated upon, shipped and sold in the global marketplace. Very interesting show which highlights the dangerous nature of letting food supplies be handled by the corporate free market interests. Doubly so as the show was a few years old and predicted the high prices and riots that we're now seeing. 8/10

    Finally, I watched the paedophile episode of Brass Eye from 2001. I couldn't actually believe that the celebrity idiots appearing in the PSAs were actually conned into thinking they were real. The show did a great job of lampooning the hysteria and moral panic surrounding paedophilia in Britain and the US. While the show itself wasn't all that funny, the reactions it garnered from the press and various advocacy groups made it so. 7/10

    Rome is excellent - really violent and bloody. Takes a few episodes to get into it (at least for me), but really enjoyed both seasons.

    Never bothered with OZ after season 2 - heard seasons 3-6 were shite.

    Currently watching Ken Burns' Baseball doco - excellent stuff.

    Re: TV download recommendations

    Mad Men is excellent television. It's set in the 50s and revolves around one of the main Manhattan ad agencies so you've got a microcosm of all the century defining upheavel that went on around that time. It touches on Freud, Edward Bernays, the birth of the brand, tobacco, feminism, Kennedy v Nixon, patriarchy and they all wear dapper as fu(k suits and smoke. All the time. The acting is top bananas as well. Made by one of The Sopranos writers. That should be recommendation enough.
