  1. I am really enjoying Shaun Micallef’s Brain Eisteddfod …then Ghosts after that….
    Aftertaste was great…watched 3 eps…each day last weekend….great cast…scripts…camera… editing….well put together all around

  2. After The Verdict was good enough for me to keep watching. I found myself enjoying it… for the most part. Magda, Lincoln and Sullivan were all good with the limited stuff they got given, but it’s Michelle Lim Davidson who grates on me. She’s not strong enough of an actress imo (I thought this in the Newsreader too), so her character is difficult to pull off… she came across as juvenile, shrill and completely over the top which was a bit of a juxtaposition to the tone the show was trying to upkeep. The writing was good though so she was largely saved.
