    @kindgnice No, I haven't watch it. It looks like some horror and I'm afraid those kinds of movies/TV series ;P

    It's kinda horror but there's also mystery and crime scene investigation as well. :)
    I enjoyed the idea of eating brains to see their perceptions. :)

    i've watched quite a few, but language-worthy wise,

    - house m.d ( witty use of wordplay, some of his jokes are wee bit dark but still, funny. )
    - black adder ( this is how i imagine the people living in black-and-white telly's age speaks like. plus, its mr. bean. )

    but really, most of all, you'd be better off watching the series you like, rather than the series you think could improve your language prowess. it'll come naturally when you enjoy the stuff.

    Last night I watched another episode of Vikings. This is really interesting series.

    I like to try the House M.D.
    It sounds familiar to me. :)
    Thanks buddy!

    House MD is also one of my favourite series. I am going to download few epiaodes of it that I missed.
  • kindgnicekindgnice LEO Motivator!!! Posts: 7,958 mod
    How about C.S.I. ?
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    I didn't watch it so far.

    @Sange what are your favourite TV series? :)
  • kindgnicekindgnice LEO Motivator!!! Posts: 7,958 mod
    It's a great series. It means Crime Scene Investigation. ;)

    Wow! How much did you pay for that Kindle? I'm used to reading books from my phone. ;)

    Dear @Bubbly I have never seen Fawlty Towers. I'll look for it. In general, I prefer action TV series.
    @kindgnice what do you think about The Vampire Diaries? Vampires are better than Zombies...they are more elegant and sophisticated

    Wow! I like that too as well as its sequel, The Originals. :)

    A spin-off from The Vampire Diaries and set in New Orleans, The Originals centers on the Mikaelson siblings, otherwise known as the world's original vampires: Klaus (Joseph Morgan), Elijah (Daniel Gillies), and Rebekah (Claire Holt).

    I'm not going to be able to download anything for a while, as I'm using a datacard sim for my internet access. I still have quite a few movies to catch up on though.

    Cool! You won't be bored with these movies saved in your hard drive while you're out of town. :)

    Last night I watched episode 18 of Blindspot. I'm slowly going off it as it's a bit samey and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.
