I've finished The English. It's a Western, despite its name, but a very unusual one. It's a character study of a noble English woman who is hunting down a man in the West of the US in 1890 (reasons for this would be spoilers) with the unexpected help of an Indian army guide. It is filled with contemplative scenes and scenes of raw horrific violence.

This series will haunt me. It is emotional, graphically stunning, and a slow burn.

Some of the various villains sometimes slid into the cartoonish for me, but that's my worst criticism. I can't imagine a thing like this on network television, but as a streamed option it is very good.

Strong 4 stars from me, if the graphic violence is acceptable.

I have just bought the B5 box set and will have a rewatch soon.

I've started to continue with the classic Doctor Who after stumbling across a blog called "A View From The Junkyard" and it adds something to watch a story and then read/comment on it. Makes it... sociable. I'm still on the B&W Patrick Troughton stories and have watched The Wheel In Space, The Dominators, The Mind Robber and The Invasion.

Currently on The Krotons.
