"American Horror Story - Asylum" debuted this week. I had my reservations, but it was a pretty jammed packed premiere: nuns, nympho, alien abductions, vivisections, serial killer, Adam Levine gets killed, nuns...it had it all.

It has earned the Frankennietzsche seal of approval.

Deep into season 2 of Breaking Bad, on marvellous HD cable TV. This show rocks.

The character development and storylines are excellent. If you are watching it for the first time, I wish I was so lucky. No need to wait a whole summer between parts, to boot.

Cheers!

I can't believe that none of the other UK posters have mentioned Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe (which made a triumphant return to BBC2 last night; under the new name, Mindwipe) so I will. And give an example (click on the name above or click here, for a show that savages advertising).

Jonathan Meades is probably my favourite T.V. presenter. Here is his show on Surrealism

In case somebody hasn't seen Game of Thrones yet, see it. It's fucking awesome. Burrururur. So much looking forward to and hype up for season 3 personally.

it's filmed quite close to my home. My brother and one of my best friends auditioned for the cast. Think my friend is an extra in the future

Fuck! I forgot "Supernatural". Witches, demons, angels (oh, my!) etc. All with snappy lines and lots of drinking.

I have it on blu-ray (first season). Still have one Breaking Bad Season 2 episode on my hard disk drive before I watch Game of Thrones. What about Borgen, the Danish political series? Anybody of you scandinavians watched it?

I'm not a ScandiFinnLapp, but they did show it, here in the UK, on BBC4. It was, apart from a few dodgy forays into International Diplomacy (don't bother with the African or Afghanistan bits), excellent (although, personally, I could have done with more scenes involving drinking).

I like BBC4 a lot, great documentaries. Did Borgen come subtitled or dubbed?
