Watching this at the moment. A kind of cross between Lock-stock & Breaking Bad. It's an Anglo/French production from Canal+ for the U.S. Market.

Haven't made my mind up on if it is really good or expensive cliched rubbish. It is entertaining though and apart from all the blood & gore makes London look a very attractive place to visit.

12 Monkeys on Syfy.

Just watched the entire second season in one go. Probably the best way to do it, otherwise it gets difficult to remember all the various time-twisty happenings.

Cheers Monkeyboys,

Carlos

Oz is excellent. Seem to recall it being one of the first top productions on HBO, although I might be wrong.

Where are we on Shades of Blue? I have started - so I'll finish. Not sure how good it really is though.

The Outlaws. Jolly good Belgian dark comedy. BBC's version of Conrad's 'The Secret Agent' was alright.

Started it the other night, though it was abysmal, cliche'd rubbish and neither JL or RL are really that good at acting anymore.

Series 4 of OITNB is the best yet, though I wish there was at least one male character who wasn't either stupid, corrupt, criminal or a perv.

Would highly recommend Ray Donovan as well.

Would not recommend Scream on Netflix, really, really bad. If you thought Scream 4 was poor you haven't seen anything yet.

Slasher though whilst similar to Scream is superior and kept me engrossed, usual small town serial killer thing but the plot at least tried to hang together and the characters were fairly strong.

4 episodes into a French TV show called 'Baron Noir', via Amazon Prime.

I have read it described as a cross between 'The West Wing' and 'The Sopranos' but I see it more in a 'House of Cards' (UK version) vein, if that was told from the perspective of a sort of Bob Crowe figure on the Labour back benches.

If you don't mind subtitles and like a bit of political intrigue then it is well worth giving a go and it is interesting to see how the whole working v middle class debate is played out in French mainstream left wing politics, at least as entertainment.

Me too. It is ridiculous but perversely entertaining. However, the best thing I have seen recently by a country mile is Gomorra. Absolutely brilliant and I suspect all too real.

A valid point. But I am enjoying it!

However I am a little bit odd and I do love a bit of political shenanigans be they fiction or reality or, as per the norm, a mixture of both.
