Having got bored with this in early S3 I went back for another go, and recently got the the finale in S4. It does improve again, bit there are still plot holes.

I read Theroux's book recently and I would thoroughly recommend it. As a result, I too watched the Savile documentary and also read back over the Savile thread on here. Most interesting on the thread was the amount of people defending nonce Radio 1 DJ John Peel.

I watched American Murder after the recommendations here. Firstly a tragic story, carried out by a complete psychopath. I was amazed by what I was watching though. I know a lot of the footage was police bodycam, but the wife just lived her entire life on social media, it was frightening the extent to which she recorded it.

PeterH 19-10-2020 09:06 PM

Been watching SSGB. Okay alternative reality watch, detective story set in a Nazi controlled Southern Britain on the premise that the Germans had won the Battle of Britain.

If it's the same thread I'm thinking of, the mosting interesting thing was the amount of spineless cowards who retrospectively deleted their posts defending Savile once the truth started to come out.

I'm not sure I noticed many deleted posts, but I wouldn't have seen what was originally said before if the content is now gone.

Plenty of pro-Savile posts early on, with PK the only person to really stick to his guns in calling him out before the truth was finally revealed. When it did come out, PK didn't rub it in as much as I think he could have. The place misses him :(

Watching and enjoying the new series of Unsolved Mysteries(NetFlix). Well told real life mysteries. As is the nature of the series, episodes are both a bit frustrating and a little sad that they remain unsolved - however each episode examines the main explanations and leaves the viewer to draw own conclusions.

Happy Arthur 20-10-2020 08:51 AM

Pistorius on amazon prime. A really interesting documentary about Oscar Pistorius.
Amazing how his version fits with a time line, enough to provide enough doubt.
Frustrating because I just want to know what happened!!

Is this his original one or the follow up he did a year or so ago?

cpfc4evandeva 20-10-2020 09:39 PM

I would assume he watched the follow up, as this is available on iplayer at the moment. I recently watched when he met the Hamiltons. Very amusing - both appear to be quite barmy.

His Life On The Edge series, which was basically a brief look back over his programmes, was a good watch too. America is a really mental country.

Spiral (French) is equally excellent, should be a new series on BBC4 this winter, but you should definitely seek out the others, magnifique.

I enjoyed it when the BBC first broadcasted it and it's a reasonably accurate adaptation of the book, which is classic Len Deighton.

Spent last night watching The Flipside of Dominick Hide and Another Flip which is a sequel. Not sure I would rate it as high as imdb, but fun to watch.
Having a bit of a thing for 70's and 80's shows at the moment.
Would recommend.

i dont think its as good as the first series and both arn't as good as the original 1990's 14 seasons on on amazon prime with Robert Stack as host which does have some updates added at the end of the episodes. One nice touch was the ghostly image of Stack on the new series in the intro and the same theme music.

Apologies to quote myself - but wanted to clarify after further viewing. The first 3 episodes were decent, episodes 4 was the weak link exploring the supernatural and 5 was more unproven than unsolved! Watching 6 now

Completely different to Seville. He said girls would come to the radio studio and nosh off the DJs. He said nobody asked how old they were. Nobody coerced them. That is wrong, particularly by the standards of today but calling him a nonce and implying it was the same kind of offence as Saville is just ridiculous.

It's not as bad as what Savile did, but was still wrong. The lengths that Oscillatewildly (sp?) and others went to in order to defend Peel was a bit creepy.

The first episode of the ITV show following London Zoo during the lockdown is highly recommended not least as my best mate, Lucy who is also a Palace fan is on it looking after the tigers.

Martin H 22-10-2020 11:11 PM

Just finished watching See (Apple TV). It was OK. Struggled at first I think because I found myself questioning how they could do this or that when they were all blind but once I got past that it was OK. Another one with a beautiful scenic backdrop to it. It’s not GOT or LOTR but it’s OK and we were engaged enough to finish it.

Started Little Voice now which is the polar opposite being about a young wannabe singer songwriter as she tries to make her way into the biz in NYC.

Just trying to watch the series they have before our free years subs run out. :) The Morning Show was very good.

A couple of them would have been very solved had the police investigated them properly mind. There was one in the first season that I think I could have solved and a good example in season 2 is the lady in the lake, which about five minutes in I said was either suicide, or a cop.

One of season ones is so obviously the husband, it's astonishing that it went unsolved.

Oddly I found the supernatural one incredibly moving. I think I understand what's going on, but found myself agreeing to an extent with the priest, that it doesn't matter so much as why, but that what is more important is that their suffering was resolved.

Six was creepy, lgiven the lack of any bodies, the similarity in the MO Tec and the fact of the way it closed. I think they're somewhat optimistic about it being an abduction for a child to raise, and likely that it's someone with someone with less positive intentions, who's moved on from the area or was arrested for something else.

Not convinced that the Washington guy found in the rubbish dump was murdered. The cameras showed he was clearly agitated and had not take his bipolar meds so he could have put himself in the garbage bin. Fascinating series though.

Skin Up 25-10-2020 09:19 AM

If you can find it with subtitles then an animated show called Kimetsu no Yaiba is really good (English title is Demon Slayer but I fear if you put that into the search engine 80s hair metal bands and poorly written fantasy novels will blight your internet visit). It's set in 1920s Japan and follows a young kid who's family gets killed by monsters and sets off to get revenge with an interesting load of supporting characters. A film (which I think picks up straight from the end of season 1) just came out and did 44 million dollars in its first weekend which ain't bad considering most of the worlds cinemas are shut right now. Whenever I walk into a shop here I'm reminded of the merchandise scene from Spaceballs as the characters are slapped over every box of noodles, pack of crisps, can of fizzy pop ect.

If you have reservations about anime then I'm not a fan usually but got into it, the annoying character tropes and poor voice acting (over the top and hammy in Japanese and so unenthusiastic in English they sound like they're reading the phone book) that usually put me off have been adverted.

Rudeboy: the Story of Trojan Records on Sky Arts.

Tremendous mix of documentary and restaging of key moments in the rise of Jamaican music in the UK. Interviews with many of the ska pioneers I thought were long gone. Shows how the music bought young black and white people together for the first time in the late 60s against a backdrop of Enoch Powell, the National Front and overt racism.

But of course the music steals the show.

Does anyone remember a live tv show where blokes sat around each watching different channels, and it was sort of set up like Soccer Saturday except of course with tv channels? It was late at night on one of the random Sky channels, and was on about 15 years ago. For some reason I thought it was called Channel Surfing, but I can't find anything from Google... The types of people on there would be Iain Lee.

I sneaked the third episode in last night too, it's only getting better. I considered giving up so I could read the novel first but I was in too deep by then.

The same fella that wrote it also released The Hustler, The Colour of Money, and The Man Who Fell to Earth. Off subject, but I might read the last one as all I can remember about it is Bowie, and possibly a bit of nudity.

I dunno to be honest, something about her just puts me off. I'd leave her for CK.

The Octopus Teacher on Netflix, a man spends a year filming an Octopus. Basically Marley and Me underwater and anyone with an interest in scuba/free diving will love this. Brilliant.

They were all available on the Taskmaster YouTube channel but this may have changed with the move to Channel 4.

Getting into Roadkill. Laurie's character has elements of Johnson and Farage in him but still likeable in a ruthless way.

A fine Urban Myths on Les Dawson, Sky Arts. An Inside No9 with the inevitable death at the end.

Extremely late to the party but just watched the first 4 episodes of Suits. Excellent stuff. Only another 128 to go...

Halfway through Season 2 of The Boys - think it might be better than Season 1.
Season 2 of Altered Carbon to follow.

It starts here on Sunday. I've set the DVR to record the series.

It's been a long time since I've seen a good new British series here, so I'm hoping for the best, but not holding my breath.

Write up sounds a bit like the classic British House of Cards.

Gets a thumbs up from me. Got thru the seven episodes over two nights. Started off kinda poor just because the young Beth and janitor weren't very good actors. Picked up big time once Anna Taylor-Joy appeared.

New series with High Grant and Nicole Kidman just started called The Undoing, so will await a few episodes and give it a go.

Two weeks to live, is strange.

I thought it was pretty poor, but not as bad as Hareís previous effort ďCollateralĒ.

As a New Zealander, what are your thoughts on Karl Urbanís accent?

I struggled with season 2 but the final episode is fantastic.

I finished it last night too. AT-J (never heard of her before) was magnificent, portraying a whole host of emotions with the most subtle of expression. The whole show was aesthetically stunning though, it would look incredible on the big screen - I'm embarrassed to sound so poncy here but the cinematography was exceptional for a Netflix TV series. I was buzzing on the final episode.

Easily a 9/10

Quite enjoyed it. be interesting to see what a second series might bring. Strange is a good word though.

Only caught up with the last episode today but what was the ending to The Sister all about. Talk about fizzling out. It's like they hadn't finished writing it before they started filming and were desperate for the final scenes.
