Started to watch season 1 of Young Wallander this evening on Netflix. The first two episodes were gripping and we’ll be checking in to episode 3 tomorrow.

White Lines is genuinely one of if not the worst thing I have ever seen. Absolutely terrible.

One of those strange ones where you have to have seen the previous series for it to make any sense but where you think that it's crap compared to the previous series.

Yep Mrs KM and I sat through this load of toot thinking it would pick up. It did'nt Badly written , badly acted. At the end I would have killed everyone in it myself.

Been watching A Confession with Martin Freeman. Okay watch. Your usual British police vs killer drama.

Reminded me of the sort of toss Jackie Collins would be writing if she was around today. Didn't know there was an earlier series?

ITV do crime dramas very well. The Lost Honour Of Christopher Jeffries was shown again recently and it is superb. An Appropriate Adult, about Fred West, was also very good.

I have quite a passionate rant about it somewhere earlier in this thread. Complete toss

Succession on the other hand is absolutely brilliant. Only 4 episodes left though, hopefully the third season won't be delayed too much by Covid

I’ve binge watched The first 4 series of line of duty recently. Cracking program.

TopKnot 13-09-2020 09:55 AM

Cobra Kai. Cheesy as all hell but good fun. You can kind of see why the two main leads have barely had any acting work since 1984...

Got a good 80s vibe though, triumphing against the odds, standing up to the bullies, dorky teenagers coming good, and a hell of a lot of montage scenes.

Thanks for the heads up on this, somehow missed it since leaving the UK - just watched this week and was powerful stuff. Had no idea there was some good drama series on ITV these days - will go seeking out some others.

Monica Dolan apparently. Believe ITV will be repeating this at some stage as they have repeated other true crime dramas recently.

Thanks for the heads up.

It was a true story that showed how a senior cop was continuously stitched up by his senior officers that were more interested in how they were perceived in the media than actually doing any police work. It was also a study into the devastation suffered upon families that crimes like these leave behind.

Is that a bit better?

evvo111 13-09-2020 06:09 PM

The Boys. Very good programme. Erin Moriarty could play a grown up Regan in The Exorcist. She looks a little like Linda Blair.

CarlosTheFinger 13-09-2020 07:28 PM

A few years late but I've just watched 'Next Goal Wins'; the documentary about American Samoa (they of the 31-0 defeat to Australia)'s bid to qualify for the 2014 World Cup. Emotional stuff.

Finished the last season of the series a week ago. Itís consistently superb viewing but there are a few episodes that are near perfect in execution.

Catch up time this time The Man in the High Castle on Prime. Great first series that has plenty of twists and turns.

Just got stuck into Gotham. Glad I did - it's actually quite good. And great take on the whole comic book side of things as a prequel. Obviously not intellectually challenging of for people with OCD on detail, like if you are wondering why the 4th person a character works with has just skipped town (murdered) without a word, and nobody has batted a eyelid. I think they have got the balance right between grit and comic book fantasy as well.

It looks quite long though... with 20 episodes a series. Good fun.

Once you’re done with that you should watch Pennyworth which is the prequel to the prequel.

I quite liked Pennyworth, what did strike me a bit odd was the er, capital punishment scene. It was like watching another show, a more gruesome one, whereas the rest was a bit more tame in comparison.

I read 'Killing for Company' years ago. I can't even remember if the author's first meeting with Nilsen was mentioned, but that scene was quite amusing.

I know you shouldn't laugh about these things, but I remember he recounted how the punk victim had a tattoo on his neck that said 'cut here', so Nilsen did.

Pennyworth was really good I thought. Felt like an Alan Moore/Grant Morrison version of the Tara King Avengers. Paloma Faith was pretty engaging I thought, especially when Polly Walker turned up. Miles better than Gotham.

Nostrils 19-09-2020 09:23 AM

While Starzplay is current on this thread I think Doom Patrol is worth a mention. I was expecting a right load of old cobblers but absolutely loved it. It's inventive, dark, mind-bending, funny, and melancholy featuring a bunch of characters that I liked a lot. As soon as the whole second series is up I'll re-subscribe.

I also quite liked that Brendan Fraser is in it, I think he had a bit of a shit time over the last decade, and he comes across as a nice fella. I think he stood up for himself in Hollywood and got black-balled while his Mrs took him to the cleaners. His fans call it The Brenaissance.

ElwissAtMemphis 20-09-2020 07:38 PM

OK; 2nd attempt. If this sounds familiar, I already posted it in the wrong thread. Apologies but I do sincerely think that it's worth checking out ...


I stumbled across "The Two Escobars" on BBC iPlayer last night. It's a Storyville documentary about Pablo Escobar and other Colombian Drug Lord's influence on the country's football. In particular Nacional of Medellin (unsurprisingly) winning The Copa Libertadores in 1989, and how it all tragically spiralled out of control with the murder of Colombia full-back Andres Escobar after his own goal in the 1994 World Cup against USA (spoiler alert ... )

If you're a fair bit younger than me and don't know the story, then it should be fascinating. For the rest of us, there's not a whole lot new but it's still very interesting. If you like it, check out the other documentary about his hippos and how they escaped his private zoo after his death and have subsequently flourished in the Colombian countryside. I don't have its name to hand (in fact there could be more than one) but it should be easy to find and is well worth watching.

It's one of the best documentaries I've seen. The footage from that world cup was a reminder of how exciting Colombia and those teams were back then. I rewound on a few occasions.

N Herts Eagle 26-09-2020 10:43 AM

Easy watching All Creatures Great and Small. Sure its been done before but the Channel 5 version is excellent.
The book always has a link to Palace for me. Every Saturday for a while the Evening Standard or News did a serialisation of the first book. After reading all the football reports I became hooked. Its strange everytime I watch the films or TV Series it brings back memories of the early 70s.
This series does appear even closer to the books a younger Mrs Hall than the Christopher Timothy version. Also includes Diana Rigg in her last TV appearence playing Mrs Pumphrey. If you enjoyed the old series give this one a try.

I thought the same. It then became something akin to compulsive viewing for 5 or 6 episodes. Then I pretty much gave up on it. Some laugh out loud bits but a bit grating after a while.

It is such a fun watch. Agree it is not perhaps the best, but for me it is the most enjoyable. Nice to take a break from gritty dramas. Just finished The Fall which was great but uncomfortable at times.

I started watching the first episode and couldn't get into it, maybe I should give it another go.

I was astonished though, when going through the 5player (or whatever they call it) for the first time at just how much cobblers they have on there. I realise tastes vary, but it was cram-packed with brainless television. I notice the Aussies seem to have fleeced them with show after show of utter tripe as well.

Finished episode 6 of the Spurs doc. My go to 'site' have taken down the show for now. It tends to happen for series and films that are the 'shows of the moment'.

I might have to wait a few weeks to get access. The Boys season 2 is another one the sensors are tracking. The 'site' complies I reckon to enable themselves to keep operating.

They have a load of topical programmes, Love Island, Talent, UK comedy quiz shows, Yanky talk shows. All that gets overlooked. The trackers are on the look out for the big blockbuster series and films like Tenet.

Fear the Walking Dead is back in October, and the new spin off Walking Dead Beyond Worlds. Those will be a wait as well. The trick is to either wait or make sure you download them as soon as they come out. The latter sucks though if they start pulling the season 4 or 5 episdes in - just like tuning in for the big fight and losing coverage at the 6th Rd. LOL

Beggars can't be choosers.

Now onto season three of the Fall which is pretty decent and I don't think I've known the wife to be so quiet watching it. Gillian Anderson does have a slightly annoying voice but what tickles me is listening to Jamie Dornan's sinister character talking like Peter Kaye's Geraldine popstar character.

Not too sure on the umbrella academy season 2.
I’m 5 episodes in and not much has happened.

Yes, it is. Tennant is very good.

Gone Fishing was brilliant as always.

Ken Burns' 'Jazz' documentary is Fab.

Just got around to Des and the accompanying documentary. Not a barrel of laughs but very good. Like Tennant and Mayes as actors and it was done well. Something to ensure you self isolate by choice I reckon. Check your wardrobe before turning the lights out.

Harry Hill's World Of TV

This is basically just another series of TV Burp. If you liked that, you will like this.

Really? I thought it was better than the first season.

Occupied... Norwegian drama series. Interesting story line about Norway cutting of gas to the EU because of green policies. Then having a quiet invasion from Russia, approved by the EU, So as to turn the gas supply back on. A worthy 8 out of ten and better than the majority of shows on Netflix currently.

Really enjoyed Ted Lasso so far. I wasn't expecting to, and really only watched the first episode because it was filmed at Selhurst Park. But actually it's a sweet amusing show which is genuinely funny.
