Had to post this, Did anyone watch the finale of 24?.

Easily one of the, if not, the best Indian show ever. the ending was a bit over the top but nevertheless, had me on the edge of my chair.

So today was the finale of 24 on Colors. Enjoyed watching the show for the past 3 months. Don't remember the last time i watched an Indian TV show with so much interest.

Btw, this Anil Kapoor in the show seems above the law, he doesn't buckle up when in the car & continuously keeps talking on his mobile when driving!
And don't forget the initial goof-up with using Mahindra XUV in a Tata Safari sponsored show.

I read bad reviews for it. Worth watching?

Though I didn't follow the Indian version of 24, I saw the finale when everyone at home was watching just to see the reaction of everyone when they would show the twist shown in the original 24, but they changed the plot. Shouldn't have done that IMHO, that twist was very essential.

I used to watch Dirty Sexy Money a year ago, was a good watch, pity they ended before the finale.

I've been seeing Arrow. It's good but the storyline isn't great and overall somehow not upto the mark - the excitement and adrenaline rush just isn't there. But it's fine after a long day.

The Big Bang Theory too hasn't been working for me lately, but anyway a few jokes here & there are ok enough to kill time.

Last Man Standing has been good to watch.

Saw Sons of Anarchy, got bored after half an hour. Moreover I usually don't have 1 hour at hand to watch.

Anything you'll can suggest?

Started Orphan Black yesterday and completed 6 episodes. The show has an interesting plot on human cloning and focuses on the several clones of a woman which gives rise to identity issues at work, home and other places. 4 more episodes remain. Terrific acting by Tatiana Maslany!

That is too short a time to judge the show. Please give the first few episodes a watch if you can. That said, the episodes are lengthy at 1 hour each. Some of the season finales are lengthier.

Any fans of 'The Office' here? I love the series and have almost seen all the seasons quite a few times. The entire cast is amazing but the best is Michael Scott!!! Well' that's what she said!

I watched first couple of episodes. But didnt like the characters. There is no chemistry between them. Hence didnt watch the rest.
I dont think this series will get season 2.

Wrapped up Orphan Black yesterday and the finale was mindblowing! So many things happened in the last episode and it briefly set the start for the next season which begins airing April next year.

If you like cloning, genetic modifications and stuff based on that, you should give this a watch IMO. Here are some links to get you started:

Orphan Black - IMDb
Orphan Black - Metacritic

Yes!

We have a small group here who follow SoA with dedication. Some of the members including moderator Technocrat have recently started watching the serial and they've been liking it going by their posts. As for me, I started the serial during July this year and completed all the five seasons in a stretch! I got hooked at the end of the first season and it was a blast thereafter. Took me a month to wrap up 5 seasons and season 6 began airing shortly which we followed on a weekly basis.

How about you?

I'm up to date withe series. What I like about the series is the pace at which it moves. Always keeps you on the edge.

I did watch the series initially , but somehow it all looks too contrived now.

One of the best i had seen.

The ending was a bit dodgy.. Guess it's the result of overstretching a good story but I'll watch it anyways! The seventh season seems like the last, wonder what they'll come up with now cause the season finale have made my expectations slim.
