Yup, loving Preacher. I think the introduction to Cassidy in ep 1 was amazing.

Anyone watching Preacher on AMC? Episode 6 is some of the best TV to be found outside of a Tarantino film ��.

Going to check this out on Amazon Prime.

Its a real shame, because the story arc of the preceeding few series finally became the main story (instead of seperate episodes where they save somoene from someone). The whole AI taking over the world was really going somewhere with it.

Oh well. Mr Robot for my geeky fix it is.

"The Night Of" has just started. Seems like it will have legs - slow, but very well written and acted which is keeping me hooked so far.

Love Peaky Blinders, just about to start on season 3.

White Collar was very good.

Narcos and The Killing are both very watchable.

I absolutely loved Gomorrah.

Eagle's Nest 14-07-2016 10:09 PM

Billions, Gomorrah, Banshee, The West Wing, The Thick of It, Man Down, Raised by Wolves, Band of Brothers, The Wire, House of Cards (US).

Just finished s1 of billions. Loved it.

I also really liked Ascension and couldn't understand why they didn't do a second series. I presume it's because they unveiled the major twist too early.

Black Sails, Turn Washingtons Spies and Vikings.

Excellent first season but steadily declined, in my opinion. Moved away from the 'edge-of-your-seat' espionage capers into a very emotionally charged family drama.

Ray Donovan did the same thing but in a much shorter time, going from being about his clever celebrity fixes to being almost completely about his him and his annoying family.

Black Sails has been really good but no else I've mentioned it too seems to have heard of it.

Just watch 'Stranger Things' new Netflix series. Only 8 episodes and there is talk of a second series. A bjt of a cross between The Goonies and the X-Files made more so by being set in the 80s. Pretty good and with only a few episodes goes at a good pace.

Ripping yarns michael Palin.
Can't find it anywhere on the internet.
Escape from stalag 112b is the only full episode i can find.
Tomskinsons school day, the claw etc.. no where to be found.
Hilarious series would luv to see it again

danpalace07 17-07-2016 07:36 PM

actually watching TV for once, usually I can't be arsed to have a go at the zillion shows on my hard drive (all acquired completely legally of course)

The Americans S1 - it's widely regarded as one of if not the best shows on right now. I did actually watch S1 before but it was ages ago and I forgot everything so I'm rewatching before I crack on with S2. Brilliant acting, great premise and engrossing plots. Can't wait to see it get even better.

Better Call Saul - not really watching it now but it's my favourite active show I think. Essential.

Penny Dreadful S1 - quite different to the other two but with enough of a limit on the action to actually be interesting. Billie Piper is poor but the cast is good otherwise (Frankenstein a highlight I think). A bit gory but not too bad.

any newer big US dramas worth paying attention to these days? Could do with another to binge watch and read fan theories about on reddit/Digital spy etc

started watching this as well. It's immediately obvious that it's one of those shows where you either 'get' it or you hate it. I love a show with lots of character development and little action so I think I'll like this. Can't decide if Draper's a **** yet

Stavros 69 17-07-2016 07:44 PM

I've really enjoyed Ray Donnovan so far.
Re-watching Entrorage at the moment, still one of the programs I've laughed the most out loud on.
