That's poor form. Even if Homeland is a bit shit now.

I think it's gotten a bit more soap opera-ish as it's gone on and moved away from the drama. And Carrie is quite annoying, but I think she's meant to be so that's probably just good acting

I have edited my original post now in case :oops:

I went looking to see what the homeland spoiler was thinking it's be safe given that RTE is only a day after the US and Channel 4 is a week behind but googling homeland the first result was for the Daily Mail and it has a big piece on what happened in last night US episode.
I don't really have a problem with spoliers post airing, if you miss it tough luck is my attitude but I do think given it's currently being aired in the UK that was poor form. But sure it's all about controversy and getting the traffic for them so I suppose it works

Haven't seen the series obviously but knowing the films' simplicity I would imagine that's a yes.

The plot of the evil dead trilogy can be summed up as: Ash fights possessed monsters in the woods/the woods again/medieval times and then a convenience store.

Preacher trailer. Holding back on the batshitness for the moment. Excited to see what Joe Gilgun does with Cassidy.

That looks pretty good. Great to see Gilgun in more stuff.

Ash vs Evil dead was great.
Nice mix of the classic Evil dead slap stick stuff and the more serious story line with the cop.

You think? I've been enjoying it, loads of good gags.

What were you expecting? By that I mean is it disappointing compared to the older Muppet shows and films, or as a TV comedy in general.
