Her Majesty's Prison: Aylesbury on ITV right now.

Watched it last week as well and considering how brutal it is it's a good watch. It's full of some proper crazy bastards threatening to kill everybody, and the prisoners are the same!

The Wire - Season 5

Enjoyed it but defo the worst season, didn't care for the stuff with the newspaper, some characters were crapped on with how they met their demise. There was definitely something missing with Season 5, I dunno it just never seemed to get going and when something threatened to happen they just pulled the rug out from under it's legs for ex. Omar killed off by a random kid in the middle of his revenge on Marlo quest. They seem to enjoy wasting potentially epic confrontations on this show.

8/10

I think I enjoyed The Wire more when it was more focussed on the politics of the cops, the streets and the game than the final two seasons where it's more about politics between politicians.

We had the huge writers strike during season 5 of The Wire. I think that definitely had an effect on the overall quality of the final season.

The writers strike defo affected Season 5 of The Wire, the storyline was mental and pretty unbelievable compared to what had gone on before. Brutal, hard hitting, tragic but believable.

2 and 4 were my favourites.

Anyhoo Dodo, how you getting on with Breaking Bad?

Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Don't quote me on it mate, but its supposed to be back on in June and I think its Netflix that'll be showing it.

Anyone confirm this?

You're right about June, but I don't think Netflix will update new episodes immediately.

Asylum is f**king brilliant, maybe not as great as the first series, but still brilliant in its own right.

@MPK

s**t! I need to find out how ill get this watched then!

EDIT:

Just seen this, talks about Season 5 but not necessarily Part 2 . . . .

Quoted in Digital Spy, Kelly Merryman, Vice President of Content Acquisition at Netflix, said: “Season four broke viewing records for us across the board and we expect fans of the show to be even more excited about season 5 part 1 becoming available so soon after their premiere on television in the United States.”

Basically, who knows I think!?

Lee Nelson on Let's Dance for Comic Relief

I wish i had more in to drink. This has what a Saturday night becomes when you have a family. I'd run if i could be sure they'd never find me.

I thought it was bad enough we had Ant and Dec on followed by The Cube.
My personal idea of Saturday night hell.
Oh for the days of being on the p**s, chasing the ladies, sometimes catching them, then being handcuffed, by the police, then being charged.
Still. You watched sum c**t dance for comic relief.

Sorry Baz but I forgot to add 'hahahaha'.
I was too busy watching some bald wanker on The Cube.
Still, it wasn't Lee Nelson.
So that's ok then.
