Erm, good question. My first reaction would be no, but then again it does deal with issues that could be affecting her in the coming years. If you were to let her watch it, I would watch it with her or at least have seen it yourself so you could talk to her about it. Also, be warned, the suicide scene is very graphic.

I wouldn't advise it, it gets very heavy

Recently watched outlander, enjoyed that looking forward to series three. Turn is also good. Outlander is about time travel and Scots rebellion in 1745,lots of sex and sado sex. Turn is about a spy ring during American war of independence. Both on prime.

Bryan 10-05-2017 04:57 PM

Fleabag is quite a laugh if you don't mind middle class people and are totally amoral

I think the opening scene is our heroine being caught by her boyfriend wanking to a video of Barak Obama.

Bipe 10-05-2017 05:36 PM

I'm sure it's been mentioned on here before but me and the wife have finally started getting stuck in to True Detective on the old catch up thing.

Slow burning and utterly absorbing. We watched episode 4 last night which culminated in a stunning scene of urban chaos.

DocSavage 10-05-2017 06:29 PM

I recommend"The Survivors" spooky and riveting

That is the second scene, the first is her getting bum ****ed.

My favourite comedy of last year.

"Bilge" on "stilts". I watched the first three and a bit episodes then realised that life is too short. The main character (who also co-wrote and co-produced it) is really irritating as well.

Magic City on sky box sets is decent . Story of a Hotel in Florida in the 60's . If you like gangsters , pretty women sex and murders this ones a must .

Was off work a while back and watched (for the second time) another box set , Strike Back (4 series) , the story's of a covert British military team doing the dirty work that needs doing , very good .

Saw second series. Despite Ansari not being a professional actor I thought it had a great script, was witty, great insights into human nature esp in this series relationships, a beautiful Italian, New York - and lots of food.

Very good

I know it's an old series but I had never seen it before but Monkey Dust is like an animated Monty Python. It's making me chuckle.

Terrace Bickle 18-05-2017 08:46 PM

Three Girls has been extremely well acted. Terrible, harrowing story though. Apparently the trial has been toned down, if so it's disgraceful​ what they were put through.

Oddjob 19-05-2017 10:58 AM

I'm really enjoying catching up on Inside No 9, written and starring Steve Pemberton & Reece Shearsmith of League Of Gentleman, sort of like Tales Of The Unexpected each is a standalone 30 min episode often with some fairly famous guest stars..........its black comedy mixed with elements of thriller /horror and is nicely macabre. Some episodes are better than others but on the whole much recommended.

Ha, just watching the second season, I enjoy it too, feels quite fresh.

Ansari has done quite a lot of acting though, he's one of the main characters in Parks and Recreation for 7 seasons!

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.

also,the Djinni was certainly a large gentleman. But that scene was also rather beautiful.

Made my eyes water just watching it. I think they've done a wonderful job with it so far, not at all scared to push the boundaries, but also not to do it for the sake of it. Also that ultra HD looks incredible.

The number of posts on this thread are making me look like a proper telly addict :o.
Hap and Leonard on Amazon.

Nearly didn't bother, but saw that James Purfoy and Omar from The Wire were in it, so gave it a go. After a slow start, it builds into quite an edgy action packed (violent) series. The second season (there's only six episodes both) is even better, changing the format slightly, but never losing the wit, charm or character developement of the first season. Excellent performances and a storyline taken from the novels of Joe. R. Lansdale, who I'd never heard of, but will definitely check out now. Highly recommend this, only 7.4 on IMDB, but I think it was based only upon the first few episodes (as somebody on there pointed out).

The first couple of episodes are ok, but keep going, it gets much better. A third series has been given the nod, but I'm thinking about reading book 3 in the H & L series first.

Caught this on iPlayer by chance before the first episode was scheduled and pretty much watched it through in one session. The cast fit this perfectly and what could have been awful if they had got the delivery wrong turns out to be very funny. Nostalgic (music etc), cringeworthy but very funny. Think the 'bass player' (Joe Thomas, one of the inbetweeners) wrote one of the episodes. Not seen the lead guy before but he was spot on. James Buckley is very good, mixing swagger with vulnerability, but they all are.

GLOW is just out on Netflix and it's really worth a watch.

Most of the attention it got beforehand was Alison Brie gets her boobs out. The bad news on that front is there's a couple of scenes in the first episode then no more.

It's based on the real TV show/Event Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling in from the early 90's, a really trashy women's equivalent of the WWF. And it's from the creator of Weeds & Orange is the new Black

A big selling point to me is 30 min episodes. I'm not a fan of long shows unless they are particularly good and I was happy to fly through the 10 episodes of this in less than a day.

danpalace07 25-06-2017 06:02 AM

GLOW (Netflix) - a bit cheesy, funny and entertaining. Also, Alison Brie gets her bristols out. What more do you want?

Nostrils 30-06-2017 09:41 PM

American Anarchist on Netflix.

An interview with William Powell, author of the infamous 'The Anarchist Cookbook'. Although I knew what it was (never read it) I was interested to find out what it's creator was all about. Worth a watch if you like that sort of thing.

Jerry Murphy's Fringe 02-07-2017 04:49 PM

Surprisingly, mensturation themed in places.


OK then.

The sinner

Episode 1 of an 8 part series just aired in the states

I know it's been mentioned already, but I blitzed through "13 Reasons Why" across about 5 evenings last week - a very moving and emotional ride that deals with a lot of difficult issues amongst young people.

Rick and Morty is absolutely hysterical for lighter watching. That's on Netflix.

Fearless on ITV. I usually give anything on 3 a wide berth these days, either through snobbery or simply because most of their content is sh!t, but gave this a go upon recommendation. It's far fetched for sure, but if you can ignore that, you'll enjoy a gripping show held together by Helen McCrory (who's a fine actress imo).

Palace Kebab 07-08-2017 06:08 AM

Midnight Sun is a good scandi crime drama abailable on Sky.

Love Line of Duty, but only discovered it on Netflix revently, so annoying that series 3 is not on the UK site yet after watching the first couple of episodes on Netflix Italy at the end of our holiday.

danpalace07 07-08-2017 04:50 PM

Snowfall (FX) is decent. A drama on the rise of crack in LA back in the day following a few main characters - a 19 year old who gets into dealing coke, a CIA agent who believes he's fighting communism by helping pro US rebels in South America get weapons and bringing coke into the US and a wrestler who starts working with the son of some cartel boss or something and his cousin. The problem is the kid's (Franklin) scenes are so good that it's hard to care about the other two
