I'm enjoying Godless on Netflix.

Ninjas Headband 24-08-2020 07:25 AM

Mandy on iPlayer.

Diane Morgan plays the grotesque character Mandy with appearances from the likes of Maxime Peake & Sean Lock. Hilarious in places.

Nice use of the scab that used to be a likeness of the late Shaun Ryder.

I watched Undercover at the weekend. A Dutch/Belgian cops go undercover in Butlins thingy. Based on a true story. Recommended.

Yeah....I enjoyed it for a while but it doesnít stand up to Narcos for me. Pablo was such an engrossing character and canít be replicated in the Mexico one.

Old Joe Paxton 24-08-2020 09:20 AM

Didn’t bother watching the Narcos spin off. Saw all main series but also it tailed off badly after (Spoiler?!:) Escobar’s death In series 3 or two was it.

Old Joe Paxton 24-08-2020 09:25 AM

Tales from the Loop on Amazon. Not everyoneís cup of tea but melancholic, other worldliness and slight sinister hint. Overall it came together in the end and thought it was different and clever and thought provoking.

Series inspired bya Swedish artists painting of old, rusted or working robotic figures in rural Sweden. And consequently itís in our world, of maybe the 70s or 80s, but not quite. And Rural America as Sweden. As it can do in parts.

Do you need to see the other narcos first?

evvo111 24-08-2020 09:36 AM

If you like the silliness and light-heartedness of shows like Hercules and Xena it may be worth watching Atlantis (from 2016, 2017).

Not really, but it helps...especially when characters from the Cali and Medellin cartels pop up. It also gives you an idea of what the DEA etc were up against with regards the corruption within certain law and order forces in Sputh America

From what I can tell there is less changing of history to fit in this, the first series following Kiki Camerena was very good.

The timeline for Narcos Mexico runs alongside the events in Narcos including the rival Colombian cartels setting up distribution in Mexico. Fills in a few gaps.

It's brilliant!

PeterH 24-08-2020 04:03 PM

I like High Score after a couple of episodes. It is missing something for me, though.

A couple of episodes in and it has focused on Space Invaders, Pacman, Atari and Nintendo.

And it is as though gaming only happened in The USA with a shrug towards Japan.

I would like to have seen mention (and they may yet appear), Defender, IK+, Dragon's Lair, Guantlet, Scramble Centipede, Galaxian, Lunar Landing, Jet Pack etc., and the very earliest sports game,s like Track and Field (real joystick bashers). I remeber Defender as being the game where high scores werereally importants in the local arcade. Clocking Defender was a status symbol.

Atari and NES weren't the only early players - no mention yet of the early computers - ZX, Amstrad, BBC Micro, C64. Doesn't give me confidence that Amiga vs Atari is going to get a mention.

And where 's Sonic and Sega?

PeterH 24-08-2020 04:05 PM

Idly catching up on season 4 of New Girl as well.

Not the greatest, but the main character has the loveliest eyes and I like Schmidt.

evvo111 24-08-2020 04:28 PM

I really, really want to like Lovecraft Country, and I do to an extent, but it seems to jump in the story line without an explaination at times. On the plus side I do like a secret society, especially an evil one.

I dont think its billing itself as a comprehensive history of gaming, that would be insanely long and very subjective (everyone has a different opinion of what is important largely based on age, location and preferred genre). I like that they have selected specific touchpoints to go into detail on, with a generous dollop of nostalgia. RPGs next!

Fair. But I would argue that the only NEW thing I saw was where Kirby came from.

We all know about Atari, NES, Space Invaders and Pacman.

It is a documentary akin to a music documentary focusing on Bill Haley, Elvis and The Beatles at the moment.

And it is very USA focused.

And when it focuses on sports games are we going to just see Madden and FIFA vs PES. No Championship Manager, Colin McRae, Sega arcade, Daytona etc..

And right on cue, episode 3 and 4 covered most of what I was asking for. LOLOLOLOL.

I thought these later episodes were much better. Not sure why they had to spend so much time on a game for the gay community - a game most had never heard of and one that even seems lost in time. Even the maker couldn't be arsed to find the money and go back and look for his missing coding - and then expects everyone else to be bothered 30 years later. Fecking snowflake. Just seemed they wanted to hammer in something inclusive, and could only find this obscure story...not great really.

I preferred the gay black chap that was inspired by madden, and did all he could to get a job there.

The RPG episode was great. Starting at the text level. Would love to have seen Dungeon Master mentioned...but at least they moved away from consoles and looked at some of the PC based output.

The highlight so far across 4 episodes was Nintendo inventing Kirby based on the lawyer that won them the case.

Selhurst Celtic 25-08-2020 06:59 PM

Swingers.

It was on channel 4 last night. It's set to be a classic in the way that their Dogging documentary is also a fecking hilarious watch.

Siobhan the oldest swinger in town is something else. And the couple wearing glasses? Blimey, not sure what was worse. The choice of the end of the wine bottle, or keeping red wine in the fridge. Either way, please watch and enjoy. You might even thank me.

PeterH 25-08-2020 07:01 PM

World On Fire...

mentioned before on this thread. I am enjoying this piece of WWII fluff despite a few glaring plot holes. Not least how some running and hiding Pole managed to get from the middle of Poland (after oddly finding some British servicemen there) to Dunkirk.

A couple of love stories, a gay, multiracial romance, and a set up ready to applaud the Yanky heroes in at some stage. But still a good, easy watch. Dunkirk scenes no better or worse than those of the costly recent film. And nice to see a lot from inside Poland and Germany.

And to cap it all. Lots of scenes with Sean Bean for his legion of BBS fans.

I did enjoy it but on balance you are right that it was Very american-centric. Could have done with a bit less of the ĎIím a guy that entered a tournament and won ití stuff too, that wasnít very interesting but I guess they wanted a human angle of sorts. I really like the stories of the bedroom coders and how they changed things, it was the Wild West of gaming where good ideas and persistence would reap the rewards. The story of carmack staying up all night to figure out how to make the PC do scrolling like the NES was great. Would love to see a similar documentary on bedroom coders in the Spectrum era, there must be some stories there.

Hopefully theyíll do another series, so much scope to be explored.

Yep, agree with all of that. The husband and wife team in particular.

And previously, the Uni students that dropped out to make Missile Command and Pacman much harder to beat.

Semi-detached. Saw the episode last night, not seen any of the others. I am not a particular fan of Lee Mack however I found myself staying with it. The neighbour made me laugh & I didn't envisage that ending. Hilarious.

Should I catch up on the rest of the series?

Manctopia, on BBC2. Rather depressing documentary on homelessness, development and gentrification in Manchester. Parts of the city I once knew pretty well are unrecognisable. And the changes are far more shocking than London, because the city is so much smaller.

South Korean show Strangers on Netflix is shaping up to be a very good series.

I was watching Boardwalk Empire, but I found season three and the beginning of four to be a bit of a drag tbh. Figured I needed a break. Seasons one and two were fantastic though.

Surely the BBC are partially responsible for the gentrification themselves?

Late to the party on this one but have just blitzed through Community in the last week, great show, also very clever, would recommend.

AshfordianEagle 01-09-2020 12:25 AM

Actually, pandemic update on recent viewings.....

Blakes 7 (52 episodes) - Look past the cheapness and a good story.Final episode a bit of a let down. 8/10

Dear John (14 episodes) - mid 80s BBC. In love little series like this, 14 episodes, little bit dated but worth the watch, Kirk St Moritz :lux: 7/10

The Tripods (25 episodes) - bit of a kids program, shame the final series wasn't made. 6.5/10

Catweazel (26 episodes) - Dated, but good fun. 7.5/10

Leverage (77 episodes) - Kind of weekly heist show, oddly getting a new series 8 years after the last, Gina Bellman stars too. Good fun. 8/10

Psych (120 episodes and 22 films) - Guy pretending to be psychic but is actually just ultra observant. He and buddy work for the police. Good fun. 8/10

Counterpart (20 episodes) - Different, hard to track at points, but worth it. Interesting. 8/10

Citizen Smith (30 episodes) - Dated but still fun. 7.5/10

The Smoking Room (17 episodes) - Stars Robert Webb, well written and acted. 8.5/10

Just finished this after falling asleep 3 times trying finish the final episode. Not a reflection on the program. Pretty standard fare, but got to admire the balls of the wire specialist. I love a bit of nostalgia, so the first episode about 70s New York was great. Just feel they could have gone into a bit more depth.

It is excellent. The main characters Saga and Martin are the strength of the series.
I love Scandi Noir but missed The Killing when it was on. I'm binging series 1 now but think The Bridge is far better.

I saw the US remake of The Killing a while back (set in Seattle) and I think that was better than the original. I think they just try to do too much with too many plot twists.

PeterH 06-09-2020 10:39 PM

New Girl season 5...I enjoyed season 4.

The Stand mini series.

And a tongue in cheek Growing Belushi...James Belushi owns and runs a cannabis farm. Second episode and he is running around Colombia looking for special seeds.

Ted Lasso is very good.

Jacko 07-09-2020 10:33 AM

F1 "Drive to Survive" series on Netflix. Fantastic access to the F1 paddock and all the intrigue and politicking of F1. Shines a light on the less stellar names and teams.

Enjoy the actual Channel 4 race highlights programme even more as a result (apart from Steve Jones, but he's getting less annoying as time goes on.).

I had that on in the background, sort of half watching it. Chopper pops up every now and then. A few proper lunatics, which I suppose you'd expect.

I haven't seen (or heard of) this but what I saw of the various Underbelly series were pretty good.

Speaking of based on a true story Strayan dramas, I'm not sure I have a strong enough stomach to watch Snowtown.

Probably enough for all 2021. LOL

Rita on Netflix
Danish series about a teacher with far too many complications in her life , being a bit of a Nymphomaniac being just one of them . Superbly acted, well scripted , gentle comedy drama which deals with real issues in a very Scandinavian way ..Highly reccomend this ..

I love Scandi Noir but missed The Killing when it was on. I'm binging series 1 now but think The Bridge is far better.

I saw the US remake of The Killing a while back (set in Seattle) and I think that was better than the original. I think they just try to do too much with too many plot twists.

Agree about Saga and Martin.

I have not seen the Killing, will add that to the ever growing list. Cheers

The Strike series as a whole. J.K. Rowling knows how to write and she's the Executive Producer, I believe. All available on iPlayer.

Seriously? The US version of The Killing was abysmal - they even changed who the killer was and dragged it out to a second series. The Bridge is superb. Saga is brilliant and it somehow makes it funnier when you read what she says rather than listening to it.
Borgen was really good too and has just gone on Netflix I believe

Terrace Bickle 09-09-2020 09:13 AM

Hmm, maybe I just liked the atmospherics of the US version or thought the lead was better. It was a long time ago, but disappointed with The Killing so far. Couldn't fault The Bridge.

Twin on iplayer is very good. A Norwegian Drama featuring Kristofer Hivju who played Tormund Giantsbane in Game of Thrones. He plays both twin brothers brilliantly. Great story. By the way it is nothing like Game of Thrones so don't let that put you off if you are not into dragons and tits.

Trouble is i'm not a TV programme. You seem a bit troubled.

Star Girl

What it lacks in originality it makes up for by having Amy Smart in it. Definitely watchable
