Being trying to watch People just do nothing, but the main character MC Grinder reminds me of my old boss too much and winds me up.

I can't decide whether I like it or not, I think I do but it's a bit too painful to watch sometimes.

I actually found it quite entertaining!

The 2nd season of Gomorra started this week over here in France.
The 1st episode was more than promising!

Anyone watched any Drunk History?

discovered it by accident last night.

Tomo 04-10-2016 01:10 PM

Iím currently watching Mad Men.
It may well be my favourite show ever. Iíve watched nearly 6 series in little under a month. I love everything about it. The setting, the way the show washes over you, how 75% of the characters are utterly hateful yet you feel sorry for them (apart from Pete).

Iíve read most of the Preacher comics so want to finish those before I watch the series, but super excited to watch it.

Will Give Stranger Things a watch when Iím done with that.

Itís amazing how the way people consume media/television has changed over the last 5 years.
How many people actually watch TV when itís live on telly now? If itís not sport I can think of very few shows that I will stay in for to watch live.

EagleSE24 04-10-2016 01:15 PM

One episode of Gomorrah season 2 to go.

It's the only thing I've seen recently that has come close to Fargo, which remains the best television I've seen in years.

Considering trying Deadwood next.

orp pisshead1 05-10-2016 05:18 AM

National treasure on 4OD , we have some great dramas in this country.

ozzieEagle 05-10-2016 05:34 AM

I go for comedies usually..... Really enjoyed binge watching Sharon Horgans Catastrophe ..... and Boomers. Both series were hilarious IMO.


Oh and totally left of center, if you like those foodie/road trip type shows.... Then Gourmet Farmer with Matthew Evans.... This show will open your eyes on what a well kept secret Tasmania is and one of the best places in the world to live a quiet life..... River cottageish.... but far more raw. I reckon its the best show in that Genre.

Two episodes into a new HBO series called Westworld. About a wild west resort staffed by super realistic robots who are becoming self aware, based on a Micheal Crichton book and a 1973 movie.

Taking Fire on Discovery is rivetting. Not sure I will ever watch a war film after this as this is as real as it gets, because it is real. Soldiers covered a year in Afghanistan with cameras on their helmets and bodies and filmed everything their platoon had to go through. Bloody frightening to see and hear what they did, including their buddies getting killed or terribly injured and trying to get the injured away whilst under fire. Especially when the medic got shot through the neck himself in last week's episode and he had to tell the back up how to treat him whilst thinking he had no chance anyway. But he survived.

A million times better than Ross Kemp's shite where bugger all seemed to ever happen.

Nat Geo's series 'Facing' certain leaders. They have people interviewed who were very close to them. Facing Saddam Hussein was this week and last week was Facing Putin. I think next week is Facing Mullery where Peter Ward tells us about shooting and cumming all over Mullery's bum, then goes on to tell us who was up him.

Watched the first couple of episodes of 'Jessica Jones' last night and found it a lot better than I thought it would be. It's quite noir in tone and has the added bonus of Luke Cage playing an important role. I enjoyed Luke Cage series too.

Not a recommendation, as I'm certain everyone has seen it, but I caught an episode of 'Only Fools...' the other day and it made me realise just how poor the majority of new tv comedy has become. My son asked me why people were laughing in the background:).

ElwissAtMemphis 18-10-2016 07:39 PM

Another series of Ordinary Lies tonight on BBC1 at 9:00pm. The first one was good although this has a totally different cast and storyline. Hopefully it's the same writers.

Same here and the next episode. Put together the worst bits of 24, west wing and house of cards (theyve even nicked the intro music from HoC and use it as background during the program) and you get designated survivor.

Watched the first 3. It's intriguing but other than the robots taking over I'm not sure where the story goes.

Sons of Anarchy, great but the most violence series I've seen.

First episode showed a lot of promise.

Goliath on Amazon Prime. Highly Recommend. I have just watched the first three episodes in a row. Looking forward to the next five but I have to go to bed. Starring Billy Bob Thornton. Really good reviews as well.

"Once a powerful lawyer, Billy McBride is now a washed up ambulance chaser, who spends more time in bars than the courtroom. When Billy reluctantly agrees to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the massive law firm he helped create, a vast and deadly conspiracy comes to light. Billy and his team end up in a life-or-death trial against the ultimate foe, which could end up helping Billy find redemption and exact revenge on the firm."

Just begun watch Glitch on Netflix - Australian drama in the mould of The Returned, with people returning from the dead and they cannot leave the immediate vicinity of the town.

Only 3 episodes in but it is good so far with some interesting characters. My only gripe so far is the equanimity with which people who supposedly have been dead for 100+ years accept all of the trappings of modern life (cars, electricity, etc.) without so much as a blink.

not too sure I'd recommend it because I found it very disturbing indeed, caught the last 20 mins on C4 60 Days in Jail, a reality TV show where a group of civvies are banged in a jail with real convicts, the closing scene showed one of the contestants brutally attacked, this cant be real surely? or was it mocked up to look like he was attacked?

It is real, although when I saw it on another channel they kept showing a future clip of the assailant running towards one of the "inmates" to attack them but cutting off just before the assault.

When they finally showed the assault it was quite tame if you get my meaning, more of a heavy slap if it's the same one you're talking about. Good tv though.

Is that the legal one on Prime? If so, it's next on the list.

I'm currently watching Gomorrah (in dribs and drabs when the wife's not about - she's not into gangster) and Daredevil which is way better than I'd expected, probably the best of the three Netflix Marvel Universe ventures imo.

caught up with E2, not too much happening they are being acquainted with each other and counting down to their first day in the jail, they fast forward to clips of the next episodes where it seems there have been incidents, the lesbian looks like she had a clump and the cocky teacher appears to have been arrested and sent to segregation, the main tear ups seem to be with the normal inmates not the contestants.

Enjoying this much more than I thought I would. As TV shows go it couldn't be more different from the Sopranos (my favourite TV show to date), yet at the same time share so many similarities in the amount of suspense created through dialogue alone, thanks to the power held by the people at the top.





***SPOILER****I keep expecting a Tony Soprano style execution to happen at any minute but then have to remind myself this is the Vatican afterall. Still could see it getting that dark yet, given the unpredictability of the Pope and lengths he has already gone to already to save a failing Catholic Church. ****SPOILER****:moo:
