Yeah BCS was utterly brilliant this week.
They ramp up the meth trade storyline and push Gus in the last 2 eps, then pull it right back to (just about) a bottle episode about Jimmy and Chuck's relationship at its most fundamental level. Amazing stuff.

BCS is so fucking good it's ridiculous. I do be beaming watching it most of the time, whether it's from marveling at the acting, the writing or the cinematography. The plotting is so bloody good, impossible to predict but whenever something happens it's so bloody obvious - of course that's what'd happen/he'd do/etc.

Btw how dafuck did I not know Fargo s3 was 4 episodes in?! Sloppy forum. Heard it's great anyway

Are ye all still watching walking dead? I am, and i was looking at it the other night there. The lads writing it must be fucking browned off.

So they run into another group of survivors, that live in a dump, dress in all grey, and act like a cult and speak in a sort of theatrical deconstructed english

and i'm thinking... hang on... its been what.. 5 years since the outbreak as the show runs. at what point did they all start talking like witch doctors in a 1940s safari movie. The whole lot of them sat around one night and went, fuck speaking normally... lets do this now.

5 years around, lets say the bulk of them established a dump village after 2 years... with new people arriving ... 3 years it took them! To become the ferral kids from mad max.

and the same goes for the cannibals. Fair enough, you are starving and you eat a person.. but there was one crowd made a cottage industry out of it. Didnt take ye long! learn to farm ffs.

So in the event of a global apocalypse event... according to these lads, every man jack one of us will unleash their latent urges to eat people, live in a dump, batter lads with baseball bats...

A great end to this would be what they did in lord of the flies. Theres a rake of them all knee deep in each others guts and up rocks an army van with a load of pristine soldiers... theyve sorted everything out, and theyre picking up survivors. and they meet this crowd of mad bastards, and the whole thing is put in to perspective as to how mad they all went.. at least they can end the fuckin bollox and get it off the screen

I don't watch walking dead but that's one of the things that bugged me about M Knight Shyamalams The Village. Fair enough people wanting to move away to live the way they did but yeah at what point do you deicde to start speaking like that. I know in the case of the film it was to try and create the world but it falls apart once you get to the twist. Alright film ruined by a shite ending.

Ireland wouldn't be far off it, except everyone would be wearing their GAA jerseys to show which gang they were with

There's a place near the single peninsula called the valley of the mad people, complete with stories of in breeding.
When I was a kid I was told it was because people couldn't climb up out of it.

There's a similar story about Gleann-na-nGealt near Dingle but the story is that the cure for madness is in a well in the valley.
