    Bosch S01.

    Heard many rating this, I have no idea why. Pure cliched cookie-cutter bilge. The people recommending it know what I like so I expected something new for the genre.
    I can see why it may appeal to detective-drama-starved audiences, if it's even possible to starve that market.

    Ragnarok. Brilliant imo but the dubbing let's it down. There's only 1 season (6 eps) on Netflix, really hope to see more of this. It comes at the whole superhero thing from a different angle. Solid 8/10.

    Afterlife S2, Ep 1:

    A bit flat :( 100 year birthday was cringe as was the yoga - very forced. The bath scene was funny, but as if?

    Hopefully the rest of the season picks up.

    Nope, the quality declines rapidly in the last 2/3 seasons. They try a soft reboot by moving locations but it doesn't work that great.

    Stick with it to season 4, if you like what you've seen by then you'll enjoy the rest.

    The problem ultimately is Rays father and brothers, they just comes across like a cartoon villains with hair brained schemes half the time.

    Thanks, watched the first 3 episodes at 4am today. I liked everything so far so will stick with it for now.

    We're watching The Boys, bit late to the party I know but we're really enjoying it.

    They did a special episode last week, where they were all in lockdown isolation. Not as themselves, I mean it was a proper full episode, with a script etc, as the characters. Almost every character from the show was in it...here's a few clippets from it...

    I just binge watched The Terror after hearing so many excellent reviews for it. The fact it was (loosely) based on a true event made it more interesting. It was indeed good but not quite up to the standard I was expecting. Worth a watch but not worth buying it like I did. Also...

    The supernatural monster ruined it a bit for me. I'd have far preferred it to have just been a bear. It didn't suit the rest of the story which was about a true life doomed expedition.

    I thought the Terror season 1 was fantastic. Season 2 a bit disappointing though :(

    Been watching this one the last few days surprised there isn't a thread on it, etc. though I guess it will be very Marmite - very easy and fun watching if you can switch off and enjoy it for what it is.

    Though it would have been amazing if they'd taken a 90 degree turn season 2 episode 6 and gone post apocalyptic with the cast in the fallout shelter LOL.

    I'm looking to give that a go. You might like "I am not OK with this." There are only 7 short episodes so it's pretty accessible. I found it quite quirky, funny and better than I expected it to be.

    Upload. Stuck it 20 mins - deffo not not for me
    Homeland S8 - A great final season despite the usual sillyness. Hey, a blonde lady with no headscarve can sneak onto Bagram Airbase in the middle of Afghanistan seemingly at will!
    After Life S2 - Maudlin and contrived. Really did not enjoy this season.

    Devs.

    This is truly awful television. The lead 'actress' has quite possibly given the worst performance i've ever seen on screen. Everything about her is terrible. Check out a couple of episodes just to see her in action perhaps, but this is poor and i suggest avoiding it.

    I can't fathom how she managed to get a lead role in anything. Her dead eyes, emotionless delivery of lines...there's just nothing there! I can't express enough how plain awful she is.

    I've stopped after 3 episodes. I just cant watch her and this show any longer.

    I agree the lead actress isn't great, but she's trying to convey loss. The story is actually very good and it had me hooked all the way through. Certainly not awful TV. Far better than the over hyped Westworld, which has been a mess since the end of season 1.

    Oh....this has been quite hyped up and well received in this thread, to the point I was going to start it in a few days :(
