    Yeah, the Ewan McGregor season, everything was just off about it. Maybe as the first season was so good and season 2 mostly decent my expectations were too high.

    I just watched a trailer on Netflix for something new called Cowboy Bebop, no idea WTAF it’s about but looks great :D

    Completely forgot about this after watching the first two episodes years ago! Will try it again now that it’s on NowTV.

    I've only seen the US Killing, but one of the best Cop/Murder drams i've ever seen. Right up there with "The Bridge".

    Yeah, you didn't miss much. It was only Eva Green that kept me going until the end. The spinoff has been canned after 1 season, and it is by all counts terrible, having said that it does have Natalie Dormer in it, so...

    :D

    We both thought this was fantastic. So many twists and turns just when you think you know who the killer is.

    S2 and S3 move at a faster pace with them being only 12 episodes long but to a degree are better for it. The first season must have gone through 4 or 5 dead cert suspects for who the killer was before settling on one.

    Best things we have watched on TV this year.

    Was worth persisting for Eva Greens boobs I suppose :D

    I agree that it definitely doesn't have the same spark or originality but like you, I still enjoyed it.

    The first season was my introduction to scandi noir and ever since then, I've always sought to seek out similar things.

    With the great feedback and buzz around Chucky I watched the first episode last night and it wasn't actually that bad, it's certainly caught my interest and will be watching the rest.

    Bonus points for having Dourif doing the voice again.

    Watched the Inspiration 4 docu on Netlix, was interesting, didn't realise that only one of them was a billionaire and the other three were selected or that they raised money for charity.

    Am halfway through 'The Great' Season 2. Really a fantastic series, great production, acting and brilliant humour. Highly recommend it.

    Almost coming to the end of agents of shield. I'm glad in a way, the first few seasons were excellent. But I can't help but feel it's getting dragged out.

    Yeah, I have read the books, multiple times and it's 50/50 for me. There is so much wrong about it, it's really jarring when you know.

    Just finished both seasons of Manhunt, after listening to a podcast featuring DCI Colin Sutton (YouTube / Podcast) talking mostly about the case in the second season. I think I'll listen to it again now I've seen the TV show about it.

    I really like how... real... the show felt. It wasn't overly dramatic. No shootouts, not really car chases, just what I imagine really goes on in an investigation. Good show. Worth a watch.

    Despite all the wokery, this is a really good series about the pharmaceutical industry and the pushing of a particularly addictive drug. Michael Keaton is very good and the story keeps you watching. Highly recommended.

    Just started The Devil Nextdoor on Netflix, it's about a Ukrainian immigrant to the US who is extradited in 1986 to be tried in Israel for being Ivan the Terrible a Treblinka Death Camp guard, it's quite good but also has some awful tales of the Holocaust

    Just finished 'only murders in the building' (Hulu) with Steve Martin/Selena Gomez. Basically a murder mystery with some interesting third wall stuff going on.

    Decent show, easy to watch but slow to get going. Has a great production throughout (one episode is entirely non-spoken). Not quite absolute 'must watch' but could easily be next season if they get things flowing a bit better.
    Solid 8.5/10

    King's of Pain which is currently on Blaze.

    Grown men testing their pain level tolerances with animals biting them!

    And I'm thoroughly enjoying it albeit with my mouth open wide in shock, horror and awe at some!

    Definitely don't want a slow loris after watching this!!

    F if for Family S5 is out.

    Up to ep 6, not as funny as the previous seasons and even more depressing! But still enjoying it.
