accidentally watched safe this w/e. avoid.

unsympathetic characters, poor script, bad acting, ridiculous plot twists - of the kind where it's trying to be clever, but isn't, and it still needs people acting out of character to pull it all together. steaming pile of excrement.

if some stupid c*** that you wouldn't bother having a conversation with recommends something, it's going to be shite, isn't it?

at least traces had molly windsor.

sorry, this is meant to be recommend some good tv. sports and the news. there you go.

Yeah, it wasnít great.

Watched most of that Danish submarine murder thing on Iplayer.

Pretty good considering they leave out the killer. The cadaver dogs part is mental. Capt Nemo showing up

2nd episode of ZeroZeroZero done. Brilliant.
Schitts Creek is funny for a while but it's basically the same joke for abut 100 episodes. Same as most American sit coms. Couldn't be arsed after half a season.

ZZZ is quality, although loses it a bit when they end up in the desert. The Mexican segments were by far the best.

Yeah pretty much this. The Mexican bits were fantastic, the Italian bits were good (but no Gomorrah) and the other bits got progressively less interesting as it went on.

Good, but not great would be my verdict.

It's wonderful. But it rubs a lot of people up the wrong way as it isn't "laugh out loud" hilarious - people seem to go into it with expectations of a riotous LOL-a-thon for some reason . It's a lovely little show about family, performed by family (Johnny, David & Twyler are all immediate IRL family) that has a bunch of improv chucked in. It's endearingly charming and I don't think too many other shows have the same close-knit feel. Eminently giffable as well.


Watched more of Ramy - highly recommended.

You're just about the first person I've come across who didn't like it

Agree that the Thorpe drama-doc is good.

Halfway through Season 2 of Pose. Good show; not sure if it's as emotionally hard-hitting as season 1, and some of the fringe characters aren't developed very much, but it does a great job at exploring the horrific impact of the **** epidemic in late 80s/early 90s New York.

As an aside, re-watched the first ever episode of Deadwood last night, as it was showing on Sky Atlantic. f*** me, there was more in that one hour than there is in the entirety of seasons in 99% of other TV trash.

Greatest show ever made. Just the dialogue alone merits that title. This throwaway scene where we're introduced to Al and Ellsworth is just so good. "You conniving heavy-thumbed motherfu..."

My mother has taken to watching Schitt's. The only other sitcom I've seen her enjoy is Everybody Loves Raymond.

I started watching M Night Shitelyman's 'Doll Baby' on Apple.
Peculiar first episode. Not sure I'm all that interested in where it's going.

Thinking of getting into "The First 48." I think it may have been recommended on here in the past.
Quote:
The First 48 follows detectives from around the country during these first critical hours as they race against time to find the suspect. Gritty and fast-paced, it takes viewers behind the scenes of real-life investigations with unprecedented access to crime scenes, autopsies, forensic processing, and interrogations.
On it's 22nd season.

I'm sure their products are as well. But they have perfected the ability to get people to pay way more for them than they would probably like

Very absorbing show.

Really does make you wonder how a TV show can get access to such intimate detective work.

There's literally a camera crew following detectives around as they investigate murders.

Watched series 1 of Lodge 49 on Amazon last week. Pretty good, entertaining fare about a bum who finds a lodge ring, somehow joins up and gets involved in everyone's lives. Some excellent peripheral characters too (English guy and corporate woman especially).

Decent. Sky 156 has lots of stuff like this. Loving Homicide Hunter with Joe Kenda in the afternoons while working from home, although starting to see the odd repeat now

The best show in the history of the medium. Just poetry. Watching three episodes back to back was like being in a bath with a ball of opium. Loved the movie to end it the other year too.

The Apple + tab has all the free Apple Original stuff.

There isnít much. But itís growing.

Defending Jacob is v good.
Thereís an alternative telling of the moon landings thatís good, youíll probably like it coz itís science.
The Morning Show is meant to be alright, I watched a couple of episodes.

Oh and thereís The Servant. M Night Shite supernatural horror. People seem to like that.
