Lately....some stuff I'm watching and have watched on the idiot box




Episode 5 ("Five-0") of Better Call Saul aired this week and it is a masterpiece, the best thing I've watched since Breaking Bad.  


 

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is the work of comedian Tina Fey, and it's pretty darn good, silly fun. I had a day off work yesterday and ending up marathon-watching 10 episodes while stuffing my pie hole with various pasties, chocolates and crisps. Looking forward to season 2!


I've recently been making in-roads in to my Jeeves and Wooster Omnibus (by P.G. Wodehouse) and was happy to discover that all episodes of the series have been uploaded to Youtube by some kindly folk. Terribly good, what ho!


John Wick is cheesy but highly enjoyable action film, in which the lethal assassin unleashes hell on a local thug's empire, after the head honcho's son steals John Wick's car and kills his dog. Seriously.

4/5


War of the Arrows (2012) is a first rate Korean action movie that features more archery-based action than you will likely see anywhere else, ever again. South Korean cinema just keeps on giving.

4/5
