    I ended up actually liking the US Office much more than the original UK office.

    Also liked Always Sunny in Philadelphia but they do seem to be running out of wind (not surprising considering how many seasons they've done now.

    Parks and Recreation is another favourite of mine, brilliant to see Chris Pratt before he became well known.

    Yeah, love Parks and Rec - go back to it every now and again!

    If you haven't already seen them I can highly recommend the outtakes - especially the "comeback" one with Chris Pratt going off-script! :D:D

    Parks and recreation. Started at season 2 as I heard season 1 wasn’t very good

    Ha ha, wow, I don't think I could do that myself!? I definitely enjoyed it more, the more you go into it.

    Mrs Cheesyboy has been on at me to try Outlander for ages, so started that. 2 episodes in, its alright - will stick with it, but it's very assuredly aimed at a female audience.

    It actually gets pretty good, even from a male viewer point of view :p

    :D

    Yeah, it's not crap or anything so far, and the lead is smoking hot and liable to derobe at any given moment. There's enough to keep my attention!

    Just finished the latest series of Bosch, really fantastic and filmed beautifully in UHD, looks amazing on the Oled.
    Nearly finished season 1 of outlander it’s watchable but nothing remarkable. Having said that, Tobias Menzies is brilliant but only appears so far in half of the episodes, and the female lead is watchable.
    Next up counterpart.

    Look forward to your comments on counterpart, watched the trailer the other day and looks excellent.

    Finally finished Luke Cage Season 2. Got more interesting towards the end but I was glad when the end came. It was just too long. Cut the season by 3-5 episodes and it improves.

    All my attention is now of Agents of Shield Season 5 which is glorious. Absolutely loving it!

    Thought this about Jessica Jones S1. It was deathly dull for great periods, just not enough happening. 8 episodes rather than 13 might have been OK.

    To be honest, I think it just wasn't my sort of thing anyway. I'll not he bothering with any other Netflix Marvel series.

    Saw the first episode of Black Mirror, very impressed. In fact, that's probably the most enjoyment I've had from watching a tv show for a long time. Generally speaking, though, I more into films than tv shows.

    The pig episode?

    Charlie Brooker's prediction with that was surprisingly close to our ex prime minister :D

    I think it's the second episode, Fifteen Million Merits which is my favourite.

    Counterpart S2 up to Ep3 - pretty gritty and i'm a little confused as to what is going on and who is who!

    The Orville S2 - not much happened, but a good start and a couple of LOL moments. However, the Doctor and her family could be pushed out of an airlock for all i care.

    Fear TWD - up to S3 Ep6 - really enjoying this, however, we seem to be on the alternate version of Hershel's farm atm. We need to get back out onto the road!!

    The sinner, Jessica Biel series.

    And also counterpart season 2.

    Both pretty good so far I have to say.

    Well seasons 1 and 2 were produced before Netflix got hold of it and have a distinctively british vibe to them and imo, are the best of the bunch. Not due to the british vibe, they're just better written.

    Netflix got S3 onwards and it shows, the production is still great but it softens considerably, S5 has the latest "choose your own adventure" episode.

    I'd highly recommend going right back to S1 if you haven't seen it.
