Apparitions (British series about an exorcist)
Triumph at Carville (documentary about the leprosarium)
House of Numbers (documentary about HIV/AIDS largely driven by the HIV doesn't cause AIDS crowd's opinions)
Not Quite Hollywood (documentary on Aussie exploitation films)
Nightmares in Red, White and Blue (American Horror Films retrospective)
The History Channel: Video Games, Behind the Fun (I played an awful lot of them)
Forgiving Doctor Mengele
Cropsey (documentary about child abduction/murders in Staten Island)
S&MAN (documentary about independent horror filmmaking. Really bad independent film making, like handheld digital camera bad)
The Resurrected (adaptation of HP Lovecraft's Strange Case of Charles Dexter Ward. Very B horror)
Hey Boo, Harper Lee and To Kill a Mockingbird
Horsemen (completely awful. Dennis Quaid has not aged well)
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan (surprisingly good)

Yes and yes! I may have to go back and catch up with Damages if he's in it.

Nearly halfway through season 2 of The Good Wife. I like the show, Juliana and Archie are easy on the eyes. Sometimes I wish things would move a bit quicker, but I like to multiple story arcs. I can't believe I've got 5 more seasons to catch up with.

I just started watching Supernatural, after Mr. Clod had been raving about it for years. It's cute. If you like the American version of Being Human, you will like Supernatural.

My daughter holes herself up in her room and watches Supernatural on her ipod's tiny screen. It has like 8 seasons or something like that. She's been binging on it for months.

I was watching Netflix on my nook, but it died so I'm using my ipod now. It AMAZES me that the size of the screen does not interfere at all. I totally forget that Im watching it on my little ipod.

I have tiny little pornos on my dumbfone.

It's like watching people screw through a tiny, square peephole. With a poor soundtrack.

I was reading this thread on my phone last night, sitting in the living room with the tv on. I held my phone up at reading distance, so it looked like it was right next to the tv, and it took up a bigger area in my field of vision than the tv did. I guess it's all about viewing distance.

I'm at my brother's house. Complete with Netflix. So I've watched a few episodes of The United States of Tara. I love Toni Collette and it's a great premise but I just don't like it that much. I can't stand any of the characters, even the 'meant to be funny' alters. Usually even the most vile characters elicit some sort of empathetic response in me, but I can't even stand the kids in this one.

Watched a few episodes of Arrested Development. Yeah, never saw it before. I like it, it's pretty funny.

Watched a few episodes of Portlandia. There are parts I hate and parts that I find really funny. It's so weird to me that the 90s are retro now. It can't be that long ago can it? I was a young adult. Oh yeah, that was that long ago.

Re-watched The Talented Mr Ripley. I'd forgotten a lot about it. I like it. It made me think, though, that I know of two movies where part of the plot is that one of the main characters bear a small resemblance to Jude Law's character. This one with the passport and Matt Damon, and the other one being Gattaca with the ID and Ethan Hawke. None of them really look anything alike. Just an observation.

My youngest thinks Portlandia is hilarious. There was a time in the '90s when I felt like I was pretty cool, so I find it not so funny.

The women folk like Orange is the new Black if you have not checked it out yet. I started watching Arrow a while back but the episodes seem kind of up and down in quality.
