Rewatching The Street. Absolutely brilliant. Will watch Clocking Off again after that.

Nostrils 20-09-2018 08:49 PM

Wrong Man.

From the same people that investigated the Memphis Three, this series takes a look at three other cases of potential injustice. It's a bit slow for the first 20 minutes, I guess to give a little background, then the story really begins to unfold. I've only watched the first two episodes, but enjoyed watching how the team work, particularly the main investigator. Those who enjoyed 'Making a Murderer' will probably like this one too.

I watched it via Prime having signed up for the free seven day trial of Starzplay (monthly subscriptions are £5.99), but will most likely cancel on Wednesday because I'm a miser. I did notice that Mr Mercedes was on there too, so if you can watch the whole ten episodes in a week, you're on a winner.

Another vote for Killing Eve, halfway through the series on BBC iplayer and thoroughly enjoying it. The woman playing the assassin is great to watch, a psychopath for sure - but a very engaging psychopath. Good supporting characters as well...

cappuccinoeagle 20-09-2018 09:06 PM

7 episodes in out of 10 of Trust about the Getty kidnapping- riveting.

I gave up on it about half way through. Feels as if it was written by a committee: formulaic and derivative.

Corrie from 1990 on ITV3. Better than the stuff they’re pumping out now - much more authentic of everyday life.

Nostrils 01-10-2018 06:55 AM

Loved Palin's North Korea, the first couple of episodes of Strangers on ITV which was a lot better than expected, and finally, a bit late on this one - The Bletchley Circle. We enjoyed this, such a shame there isn't more of them. Not enough good old fashioned murder mystery programmes on the box anymore, and the ones that are, normally end up a bit poo.

The Circle.

Big Brother-esque format but the contestants live in separate flats within one big block, aren't allowed to meet or speak to each other and only communicate with each other using a texting app displayed on a big screen in each flat. Bit like the BBS. This of course means that they can tell a load of lies of about who they are which would otherwise be easy to see through. Bit like the BBS.

Not as compelling as it might have been (quite repetitive in fact, even for a reality TV show, bit like the BBS) but a very unique concept and worth a watch of at least one episode.

Cheers Circleyboys,

Carlos

OK, haven't posted on this thread for a while and I do watch a lot of TV these days. Have enjoyed all of the below for various reasons.....

Travelers - Time travellers coming back fro the future to save us all
Westside - 70's-80's Kiwi crime family drama
Lodge 49 - Hard to describe, but a good show, very off kilter
Tour Of Duty - Vietnam war drama
Mystery Road - Aussie drama
Mr Inbetween - only 6 episodes, but a grower

I've just been binging and finished Making a Murderer. I started off thinking, 'how are they going to get 10 episodes out of this???' - then it all went flipping crazy!!! Quite frustrating though. It reminded me very much of the Audio Podcast 'Serial' Season 1.

Yep, I am another fan of Haunting of Hilll House. Only one episode to go. Whilst I found it just a touch slow in places, which seems inevitable with the 10 episode series format, there is a distinct creepy atmosphere throughout and a few jump scares to boot. V enjoyable!

Nostrils 25-10-2018 06:18 PM

Sacrifice (Netflix)

The new Derren Brown one off. I love his stuff, but although the participent agrees to it, it's quite close to the line morally speaking, in a way, sort of. This time, Derren brainwashes somebody that hates immigrants... It's really very good.

I do wonder how many (if any) of these 'mentalist' types are employed by the armed forces and in what capacity. Terrorist organisations too. It's shady stuff when you think about it, free will and all that.

The first episode of WW1 The Last Tommies , moving, informative and excellent stock footage. Recommended, all three episodes are on the I Player.
