Watched the first episode and came to the same conclusion. Doesn't seem to be exploiting the situation. So far.

Currently embarking upon 'Into the Badlands'. It's a bit derivative of Mad Max, Hunger Games etc, and not too intensive on the noggin, but the fight scenes are quite excellent, especially those involving the high heeled, leather clad 'Widow'

Lethal Weapon is excellent

It's farcical. Mrs Adlerhorst likes it though, and she's controls the remote in our house.

Not sure what to make of Decline and Fall. First Waugh book I ever read, but not sure what to make of this attempt.

As for the series themselves, I'd probably advise watching them in the order they've been released:

Daredevil
Jessica Jones
Daredevil 2
Luke Cage
Iron Fist

You could not, but there are a few connections that wouldn't make so much sense otherwise.


Im just going to embark on these from Daredevil 1 so thanks for the running order. I actually found a link which gives the definitive timeline running order combining all the Marvel films and TV series, bet there is very few of us who have watched it in that exact order :D

Just finished it. Difficult to watch at times, but thought it was excellent. Considering the delicate subject matter, it was dealt with very well. I also felt drained at that point, but had to push on through, partly because it was gripping, partly because I wanted it to finish.

sydney eagle 04-04-2017 07:34 PM

The final three episodes were heartbreaking. I just saw an interview with the girl who played Hannah and her research into doing episode 12 alone was thorough to say the least.The whole cast were superb

si1965 06-04-2017 08:44 PM

Another thumbs up for 13 Reasons Why - some great writing and acting. Didn't realise that it was based on a best-selling book. Apparently the book takes place over the course of a day so the series have developed and expanded the characters and plot.

I watched the first two seasons of Silicone Valley. I liked rather than loved it.

Is crashing about 20 somethings living in a disused building? If so i think it is a re-write of a British show written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Well worth a watch but not as good as her other show Fleabag.

Nth Kent Eagle 07-04-2017 06:52 AM

I hope they make more episodes of Gomorrah. I also like the US series Unforgettable. I wish the British TV companies would have a series with Poppy Montgomery.

In reality my wife does too. I'll be sitting watching something good and she'll come in and say "is there anything good on?", which is code for "Hand me the remote".

Can't be bothered to trawl through 30 pages so it may have been mentioned already, but it's always sunny in Philadelphia. First season isn't great as it was made on a very low budget and basically as an experiment but in season 2 Danny De Vito enters the frame, and from then on it becomes funnier and funnier.

13 reasons why (Netflix): **** knows why I'm watching this with all the shows on my list to start like Fargo, The Sopranos, Halt and Catch Fire etc but I am and it isn't as bad as I thought it would be. Some girl kills herself and the people she thinks share the blame for it get a load of cassettes of her saying what they did, most of them little things that add up to leave her depressed and helpless

It is all going a bit 'Lost'. But it's still quite entertaining, but the slow burning mmurder mystery/interaction between characters was enough - it didn't need to go all sensationalist.

I mainly keep watching in the hole of the two police girls getting tipsy on reindeer juice and start cross examining each other. My wife has been given express orders to study and mimic their acccents.

Vince Hilaire's Afro 29-04-2017 01:01 PM

Originally an HBO documentary, US Netflix has 'The Queen of Versailles', about Florida billionnaire couple David and Jackie Siegel. He's a time share businessman who was hit hard by the financial crash which occurred during the time he was building an enormous Palace based on Versailles to replace his enormous mansion which wasn't big enough for all the shit his wife would buy from Walmart.

The documentary starts out just following their lavish lifestyle, but the makers strike gold when fate determines that it becomes a show about the family's attempts to tighten their purse strings. Highlights include the mum buying half of the McDonald's menu in a stretch limo in the drive thru, and the kids asking who all the people were on the plane with them, not realising they had to sell the private jet.

Didn't know about that. I'm too old to be getting excited by stuff like this :).

I didn't bother watching Lucifer until it dawned on me that it was might be related to the Gaiman comics. The first season is ok, but the second is quite good in a 'this is rubbish, but I like it' kind of a way. It's funny at times, with some decidedly iffy acting that somehow adds to the charm.

Nostrils 30-04-2017 10:07 PM

After posting the above I had a quick look to see what Gaiman had been up to lately and found a movie's been made based on his short story 'How to Talk to Girls at Parties'.

Synopsis: An alien touring the galaxy breaks away from her group and meets two young inhabitants of the most dangerous place in the universe: the London suburb of Croydon.

Better Call Saul and Silicon Valley are back on tv and both are fantastic! Also just finished 13 Reasons Why. Wasn't expecting to like it but it is infact incredibly moving tv, thanks mainly to the performances of the 2 leads who are both fantastic. It's slightly cliched in parts but overall a very, very good tv program.

Don't know if it's been mentioned before but currently binge-watching The Bureau on Amazon instant. A French spy thriller which is very compelling. Lots of intrigue and double-dealing but very little in the way of car chases and improbable shoot-outs.

Lucifer is quite good fun, but utterly ludicrous. It also has pretty much bugger all to do with the Neil Gaiman/Mike Carey characters.

Conversely, the first ep of American Gods was very faithful to the book.

As for whether or not you should read it first, I think you'll be a bit lost if you don't. I know people who haven't read it, watched the show and loved it though, so your choice.

I'd read it first, mainly because they're only releasing one episode a week so you may as well. Like BE says, so far they've stayed true to the book.

I loved the first episode, Shadow may be a little wooden, but overall it was excellent.

Not a recommendation, but Bucket is possibly the worst thing I have ever seen. At the very least, it runs Mrs Brown's Boys and Miranda pretty close. Avoid.

I agree with another BBSer on comedy :lux::lux:

Bucket is shite.

Thanks for that, just watched the trailer, looks very good.
Will start on that tomorrow...:)

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

The funniest black comedy I have ever seen from the States.

On Netflix.

It's slightly cliched in parts but overall a very, very good tv program.


My 12 year old wants to watch 13 reasons why, is it suitable for her? She tells me all her classmates watch it.

I loved the first episode, Shadow may be a little wooden, but overall it was excellent.


Watched the first two episodes. I have no idea what is going on but I'm liking it.

Haven't read the book.

Braindead on prime is very good. Cross between Veep and scanners.

The best shows to catch up with are,

'Peaky Blinders.' Excellent British show.

'Vikings'. Very good and gets better.

'Line of Duty'. Just superb.

'The Sopranos.' Most people have seen it by now, great.

'Boardwalk Empire'. Worth the time.

'Vinyl'. Sadly cancelled after one series.

Breaking Bad. Very good if you haven't seen it already.

'Better Call Saul.' Very slow but worth a watch if you liked 'Breaking Bad'.

'The Night Of' was good. It was adapted from the BBC series 'Criminal Justice' which I haven't seen.

It will all come together. I may have judged the Shadow actor a bit prematurely in my earlier post, he was decent in the second episode. The casting really is brilliant, I imagined the Czernobog character as older, but really like the nutter (he always plays nutters) that took the role.

It's not shy of blood and nudity either, I don't think I've ever seen a tv programme (is it still classed as tv when it's broadcast independently by Amazon?) that has a geezer with a diamond cutter on display.
