… you wait ages for decent DVDs to come along, and then three come along at once! OK, there are only a couple I want to mention here, but still. I was browsing through Play.com, and I came across a couple of DVDs which I have now ordered 🙂
The first one is Green Wing Series 2. I’ve had series one since it came out last year, and to be completely honest the first time I watched through it I was a little disappointed – some of the scenes were quite funny, but I thought it was a little too cringe-worthy. Also, the episodes are 50 minutes long which means that it’s not really a convenient length to sit down and watch an episode in between doing a couple of things (or while you’re having dinner, or something similar).
Having said that… I’ve started watching through it again just recently, and I’ve really enjoyed it. I think for some reason when I watched it through the first time, I didn’t really get it… either way, I’ve definitely found it more funny the second time through! Perhaps it’s something which grows on you. Anyway, I’ve ordered the second series, so I shall report back once I have watched it through!
The second DVD I ordered is Family Guy Seaon 5. I didn’t actually realise that they were doing another series until someone mentioned the other week that they’d been watching season 5 on the internet… I haven’t seen any of it! I’ve been a fan of Family Guy for some time now (Mr. Anderson), so I’m really looking forward to this one 🙂 Fortunately Family Guy episodes are shorter than Green Wing episodes – in fact, they’re under half the length – so getting through a season of Family Guy shouldn’t be quite so much of a marathon…
