    I've read the book, haven't watched the pilot yet; but I've heard that it's fantastic. The book is phenomenal, one of Dick's most highly regarded works. It was a hit when it was released too, if I'm not mistaken. Lots of cool stuff going on regarding simulacra, the ephemeral concept of "the original," and thus the ambiguous question of history in general. There's also a very humorous depiction (in my opinion) of a John Galt type character. Really good book.

    Is the Black Mirror Christmas special on Netflix yet???

    no I had to use one of my favorite not-so-legal streaming sites to find it. It's definitely worth hunting down. Jon Hamm is fantastic in it

    I don't get why they don't upload it. The rest of the episodes are on there. Whatever, I'll try to find it.

    Yeah I don't get it either. That's like the first two seasons of Adventuretime have been on there for at least a year...no word on the remaining seasons. Whatever, netflix

    I really liked The Borgias, sucks it got cancelled. I thought it was well done for what it was as someone not overly concerned with historical accuracy

    The first episode is weird. The rest are better.

    Yeah I noticed, and it was well worth rearranging some of the historical material. For instance, the real Machiavelli was in his 20's during the 1490's and played a more minor role during the Borgia papacy. He's my favorite character in the series.

    Also, the writers for this series seem to really know their Classics, as the dialogue is often peppered with references to ancient history and literature.

    Really bummed it got cancelled after three seasons, especially since it didn't finish the story arc.

    Same. The first and last episode of Series 2 are the only episodes I don't really care for (which is basically a third of the entire show)

    Pretty stoked for Better Call Saul. The reviews very good for the first few eps.

    The best episodes (in my opinion) have been the second ("Fifteen Million Merits") and the premiere of the second season ("Be Right Back"). I thought the latter was pretty terrifying, actually.

    Watched this last night. Thank you, that was excellent. I need more TV like this.

    I'll probably watch the rest of the series too.

    I'm stuck re-watching episodes of The Wire, Lost, Twin Peaks, Breaking Bad, TD etc. I need something new that's addicting! Might check out Fargo

    Has anyone been keeping up with It's Always Sunny? The latest episode was pretty genius.

    Fargo was far and away my favorite show from last year. They actually nailed The Coen Brothers atmosphere and expanded on the universe. Fucking loved it

    Yeah, probably top 5 in the series. It was up there with Nightman Cometh and The Gang Gives Frank an Intervention.
