Being broadcast this week only is Just a Minute on TV Smile Normally it's a radio comedy panel show but this week it's on tv from Monday-Fri on BBC 2
I'd recommend tomorrow's one for Vek as Stephen Fry is on the panel Wink

What? Why?! I'm guessing it's the shows that contain the gore and uh stuff for adult viewing?.. If so then I don't see any reason why that would be illegal. Spartacus is one of the best shows I've ever seen not because of the already mentioned things because I like history and cultures.

A friend relatively recently got me stuck on japanese anime and Korean dramas.

Currently watching a Korean action drama called "Chuno". Fairly typical love and revenge story, but it has some rather awesome action scenes. Better fight choreography than most hollywood martial arts movies.

Also started watching Bleach (looks at Saki). Its a very good show, but good gravy its long. Watched 60 episodes of it and my friend told me "oh, so your just getting to when the show REALLY starts"....

Saki, nope, it is the reality and cheesy selections you have made that I would ban because I am evil and hate them. In all The Voice, Glee and The Office on your list would be gone.

Call me vindictive if you wish Wink

Surprised So....much...anime..but... so .... little... time.... urgl!

And it makes it worse the fact that every episode ends with "to be continued". I hate "to be continued"s, because that always compels me to keep watching. Mad

My friend also suggested One Piece. I think I saw an episode or two a loooong time ago, but they were at random parts in the show so I couldn't get into it. I might try it, though with all of the episode of bleach I also have to get through, I'm probably going to have to give up uni to focus on them Razz

lol alright Vektrix, fair enough.

@Remi: If you're going to watch anime, never watch the English ones. Sub-titles are always better. When the translate it to English, they lose a lot in the translation. And if the show is on TV they major kiddie it. They lose the more adult language, blood and gore, and the cleavage Razz So in my opinion, the One Piece on TV is absolutely horrible. I download all of mine.

Saki, I am not a big fan of Anime or even foreign language films, however, I have found only one that isn't unintentionally hilarious when dubbed (that being Spirited Away). I tried watching Crouching T:ioger, Hidden Dragon dubbed, and could not concentrate because people's lip-s just did not correlate at all - I laughed my way through 5 minutes and switched to original language and subtitles.

Incidentally, I have seen some English Language TV and Films dubbed into other languages, they are even worse since you can still hear the English soundtrack in the background - sometimes they don't even bother getting the dubbed voices to fit the gender.

Oh don't worry, I don't. I've been watching Bleach completely subbed, not dubbed. For comparison sake I watched an episode of bleach both subbed and Dubbed and the amount of screwing around they did with the dialogue was ridiculous. Not to mention the voices were horrendously off. If I do pick up on One Piece it'll be the subbed version I promise.

Though Patrick makes a good point. Poorly Dubbed martial arts movies in particular are hilarious Razz

I did and I quite enjoyed it. I must say though (at least in regards to the anime), the first season was the best.

Spoiler:
I genuinely didn't expect the twist that Aizen was behind it all and all of his schemes and plans leading up to that point made enough sense. But after this point, it went from Aizen being super methodical and a brilliant schemer, to him simply being a mind-reader who could predict exactly what was going to happen, no matter how random or unexpected the move was
.

Overall I'd say it was a good show. Sad they decided not to continue making episode though.


Now I'm watching One Piece and Game of Thrones.

Sweet jesus Game of Thrones is addicting. I started watching it a week ago. Already through the first two seasons.

Pretty entertaining thus far. I'm about 240ish episodes in at the moment. The first 80ish episodes are goodish but I found it became far more interesting after:
Spoiler:
they reach the grand line.

The colourful, quirky world of One Piece is a nice change from most other animes I've seen. While it has serious moments, overall it's pretty light hearted. And thus far, there haven't really been any truly annoying or dis-likable characters, which is rather impressive considering how many new characters they introduce on a regular basis.

Definitely become one of the favourite animes that I've seen.

It gets even better as you watch the series. I've watched the entire series. Hm, do you watch it subbed or dubbed?

So I've heard. I think I'm still like 300 episode to being caught up to the current episodes D:

I watch it with subs. When it comes to animes, I've found the subs are almost always better. Voicing acting suits the characters better and often when they dub over an anime in english, they censor the language.

If your looking for animes some of the gundam series are pretty good. 00 and Wing are my favorites even though they are usually pretty serious and rarely make you laugh. Casshern sins is pretty cool too except it seems to have certain issues with its characters I cant really overlook.
