I haven't watched the last 4 episodes of Dr Who as series 7 had been pretty appalling up to that point. Hopefully Capaldi will breathe some great new life into the role since the show was quickly deteriorating under Smith.

I don't see Capaldi striking much chemistry with the current companion though.

Another old white guy! I don't know anything about him so I can't really comment on him as a new Doctor, but I wish Moffet would leave the show now. I used to like and defend him, but I can't anymore. Go away, Moff and let Mark Gatiss or someone else take over.

Breaking Bad is back soon. I doubt a show this popular has no following on PC?

Everyone I know who's seen Breaking Bad says it's good, but I've never gotten around to it.

Lots of shows coming back soon. I'm looking to see what kind of a train wreck Once Upon A Time will be this season.

Also really excited for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

I watched the first two and a half seasons of Breaking Bad and lost interest pretty quickly after that. It slowed down a little and I didn't have the patience for it at the time. I love Bryan Cranston, though!

Breaking Bad is great. All I'm doing now is waiting for the next episode, so I've been binge-watching The Vampire Diaries for the past four days. I'm in season 2 as of today, but I love how rapid the pacing is and the evergrowing mythology. It's also really refreshing how the characters aren't unlikable, unlike most other characters on TV at the moment. There's nothing quite like it, really. Any regular watchers here?

I really wouldn't want to see Gatiss as the showrunner, he has more hit/miss episodes then alot of the other writers that come to memory. I am very excited to see an older doctor again though, and Peter Capadi looks like he will deliver quite nicely. I for one, would not mind Clara's run as a companion end though.

...I really need to get on the Breaking Bad train, I keep hearing nothing but praise about that show.

I've seen the first two seasons of Breaking Bad but I dropped it around Season 3 because it slowed down and I got bored with it, aha.

Miley Cyrus just unveiled the cover for her new album:



Let us discuss this iconic piece of art.

I get that she wants that sort of D.I.Y. aesthetic on her album art, but at least make it look colorful/busy.

I like the photographs in the background though.

Eh, I've always heard great things about Breaking Bad, and I haven't watched any of it yet, but it just doesn't really peak my interest enough. I'm really looking forward to Revenge coming back at the end of September and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. And I'm more excited about the Once Spin-off, Once Upon A Time In Wonderland than I am for Once Upon A Time.

The cover reminds me of something from Saved by the Bell. I get the kind of look she was going for with this album cover, but it just looks rather cheap and slapped together. Hopefully that's not a reflection of what the songs on the album will be like.

Somehow I feel as if Miley's taking that cover a lot less seriously than you two. I'm pretty sure she meant it to look ridiculous, as everything about this era (from the album title to the video for the first single) has screamed "let's get people talking". And it seems to be working, too.

There's hardly anything worthwhile to slam/praise about the cover. It's generic 2013.

I can't think of a single comparable cover I've seen this year.

The font, the text positioning, the awful leg-crop, the facial expression, the skeletal-looking hand, the tacky neon title, the terrible unfitting background, the way the 'L' is just a tad too low so it interferes with the tacky photo frame thing - need I go on? XD Sorry haha, I just think this album cover is pure trash. It's reminiscent of covers like The Truth About Love, but they managed to pull it off 10000% better than Miley. Nothing against the girl, but whoever designed this album art should be out of a job. :p

Yeah that cover looks worse than Roar's.

But OMG NSYNC JUST REUNITED AT THE VMAs. MY CHILDHOOD IS COMING BACK.

Anyone who has a scrap of a knowledge with using Photoshop would be able to come up with something comparatively better than the album art on Bangerz. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if it was Miley herself who designed it. It's tongue-in-cheek and provocative, but it isn't good.

Now HERE'S a great album art that doesn't really have the same neon aesthetic, but has a D.I.Y. feel similar to Miley's album cover:-

Spoiler:


And here are a couple great album covers with the 80's neon, hot-pink aesthetic that's generally becoming more popular as of late:-

Spoiler:




Katy Perry's Roar album cover ain't half-bad either tbh.

Btw, new Breaking Bad episode is OUT!

Eh, I feel like I'm the only person that doesn't care at all about the VMAs. I didn't even realise that other people did until most of my Twitter feed were going gaga over it (but not over Gaga, ironically! Thank you, I'm here all week.)

I literally only watched the VMAs for Lady Gaga's performance at the beginning (which was flawless if I may say so!) and Katy Perry's performance at the end (which was also flawless!). Everything in-between, bar Justin Timberlake's three hour performance and Macklemore's Same Love, wasn't worth watching.

I'm with you, Cat Dog, but then I don't care about a lot of things where popular music is concerned.

I do like to see people lose their shi-- er, shirts over the things people do at the awards. Oh, Miley, what have you done! etc. etc.

OMG BREAKING BAD. I just watched 5 seasons of it within like, 2-3 weeks? I'm engrossed with this series. I like the main two characters, though I really can't stand the wife.

I only knew about the VMA's and Miley's raunchy performance through Imgur.
