Transparent on Amazon Prime is excellent.

Won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I thought Preacher was fantastic. Really good cast and came across as a labour of love for all involved. The Irish hedonistic vampire was particularly funny. Brilliant.

Just watched the first episode of The Get Down on Netflix. Set in The Bronx in late 70's at the birth of hip hop. It's got Grandmaster Flash as a character for crying out loud! I like it.

Why hasn't a mod changed the title of this thread to 'Recommend a US TV Programme'?

Preacher is great. Really looking forward to the second series when it should really get going. 'Angel hands'

Ruth Negga is a little bit lovely too.

The last foreign language tv programme that I watched was The Tunnel, a remake of the excellent Danish/Swedish series The Bridge.

The Bridge was probably better, but I still enjoyed The Tunnel, mainly due to the cast and the chemistry of the characters.

I also plan to watch Gomorrah, that Mr Cannon has just recommended, but the Mrs isn't too keen on gangster, so will have to put that one on hold.

Thread title saved!:lux:

Looking forward to the HBO version of Westworld with Anthony Hopkins and Ed Wood. Loved the original film - hopefully the update will do it justice

Just discovered an outstanding American animated series - Rick and Morty.

A mad, bad but endearing scientist travels through time and space with his insecure but underrated grandson against a backdrop of quasi-functional day to day suburban life.

Stumbled across it after the creators guest animated an intro to The Simpson.



It's outstanding, check it out.

Gomorrah, absolutely brilliant. Not one likeable character, all nasty vermin but so realistic. Not a great advert for Naples where it is set, and beware of anyone riding a scooter!

Sillicon Valley - hillarious fayre

pallet 22-08-2016 03:22 PM

Just to back up what everyone is saying Gomorrah is simply outstanding.

I loved the movie in a grim and nihilistic with a tiny smidgin of hope sort of way. Is the series simmilar?

I have nt seen the film but the characters in the series are very believable and very hard to like. It is very intense stuff.

dbutler 22-08-2016 04:43 PM

Bluestone 42 was the last decent series i saw on tv.

Crozzy71 22-08-2016 04:46 PM
