A little know one for you all - Damages.

Glenn Close as an evil bit4h lawyer in a who-done-it.

Certainly the first series keeps your attention, 2nd dip albeit slightly and the 3rd is airing at the moment on rte 2 late night on a tuesday.

The difficulty with it is that if you miss any of it, you're out, screwed completely.

Suffice to say that the first series (13 or so eps) turned literally on one sentence that you heard early and it was repeated on countless occassions in flashbacks, yet didn't understand its significance until the final 30 seconds of the final epsd.........

Yes, watched it on F:X last year. Absolutely awesome.

Speaking of which, Carl Williams was killed in jail on Monday!

I saw a trailer for that on TV last night, not sure which channel.. but I did think it looked worth a watch.

These have been mentioned before but I loved Firefly and Battlestar Galactica (so far, 3 seasons watched) for my sci fi dose. They're more like drama in a sci fi setting rather than futuristic/outer space malarky for the sake of it. In my top 5, along with Sopranos, The Wire and Dexter.

Ah Firelfy! EPIC! BSG Started off well but diluted down a bit too much for me and there was way too much focus on Starbuck.

If you haven't seen them (and you like a bit of Aaron Sorkin of West Wing fame) Studio 60 on Sunset Stip. Brillint, just brilliant. And the lesser known and harder to find series "Sports Night"

Life on Mars (UK edition) someone mentioned it before and I just wanted to endorse it!

Yup, watched both seasons (is there a third? planned?) on a recommendation from here. Brilliant TV.

Cool! You forget that it's based (reasonably closely, by most accounts) on real events. Nuts!

I watched the pilot it was terrible! Then I persevered and watched teh first 2 eps and it just didnt sit well with me. Have a friend who loves it though so who knows.
Thought it wasa poor mans effort to drag the series out though.

Underbelly is very good, Have a look at the youtube clip showing the actors and the real people they play...some are a little too alike for comfort

Season 3 is set in kings cross with a good few characters from season 2 featuring, first few episodes have been show in oz think 11th april was the 1st episode one....just a week before carl williams gets killed in prison



Anyone know of a link to watch season 3?

Underbelly Golden Mile is into its 3rd week on channel 9 in Oz and is topping the Wednesday night ratings so far (I expect the ratings to go through the roof now that Carl Williams is dead). It's on Freeview/terrestrial TV so a good chance you'll find a link somewhere for it.
...a beautiful weighted pass...it is 3 on 2...it is 3 on 1...Hickie!...Magnificent!

Edit: fecked up the quote structure.

Found a Great torrent of S1 &2 uncut. It's 8nahalf gigs though. Will take a few days. But you can prioritise the 1st few. The 1st 3 epps of s3 are everywhere, and epp 4 is on Sunday in Oz, so should be up before we go to bed on Sunday.

Throw a review up when you can. I've downloaded them but doubt I'll get time to watch for a while yet.

Cheers for that! The episode list is on Wikipedia

Dunno about watching, but if you search for underbelly.the.golden.mile.s03e01e02 on your favourite torrent site, or newsgroups provider, you'll likely find a copy in a format you like! I wouldn't know for sure, obviously!
