The highlight of this week's television was the return, on Tuesday, of The Following (Sky Atlantic). I cannot explain how excited I was to get back on the hunt for Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) and his cult of serial killers.
Kevin Bacon is simply superb as flawed hero Ryan Hardy, who has now traded his not-so-secret addiction to booze to a very secret obsession with tracking down the last remnants of Carroll's cult after it was seemingly destroyed at the end of the first season.
We're two weeks into Frank Darabont's Mob City (Fox), starring Walking Dead alumni Jon Bernthal and Jeffrey DeMunn as well as one of my favourite character actors Robert Knepper. It's also good to see Milo Ventimiglia in something other than Heroes.
This tale of 1940s Los Angeles cops and gangsters is sheer class.
Last night's episode concentrated on Jasmine Fontaine (Alexa Davalos), the tough-talking gal pal of murdered comedian Hecky Nash (Simon Pegg), whose rejoinders during her police interview came at a machine gun rate that we're used to hearing from Lauren Bacall and her ilk in classic film noir.
The revelation at the end of the episode means a second viewing might be in order, to re-examine some of her dialogue with Joe Teague (Bernthal) in light of these new facts.
However, this was also the week I said goodbye to The Tomorrow People (E4). The combination of bland, two-dimensional characters and clichéd plots made me finally come to my senses part way through the latest episode that there are plenty of other, better shows I could be watching instead.
I found I wasn't interested enough to pay full attention to what was going on and it was all "blah blah bluergh", so The Tomorrow People has been un-series linked and deleted from my Sky+ box.
Looking forward to next week, we have the start of season seven of Murdoch Mysteries (Alibi) on Monday and the fifth series of Outnumbered (BBC1) on Wednesday. Admittedly, Rachel and I are not 100 per cent that Outnumbered will be as funny as it used to be, now the kids (who were the source of the best laughs) have grown up.
This is another new feature idea I'm trying out on HeroPress, monitoring my high points - and low points - of the previous week's TV.
