Anxious People just landed on Netflix, Swedish comedy based on the book of the same name by Frederik Bachman, who is a top, top red . The book is excellent.

Just finishing S2 of Mr Robot. It's enjoyable and intriguing, but it's hard work too.

New Harlen Corben thing on Netflix. Usual hammy acting but easy watch. Filmed around Blackpool, Manchester and Runcorn.

S1 was genius. I felt the level dropped quite a lot in season 2.

Could have been so good - mixed acting and shallow storylines. Like Izzard as the druggie solicitor.

Social Media, Anger and Us - David Baddiel documentary from a couple of months ago (but I watched it in 2022). On Youtube.

In short, social media has sent everyone mental.

Watched that Four Lives on iPlayer with Stephen Merchant playing the Grindr killer Stephen Port. A solid 7/10 - some of the acting from basically everyone that wasn’t Merchant or Sheridan Smith is quite bad/wooden but the story itself is shocking. Incredible negligence from the police - I had to look it up after watching but the police officer who hung up on the mum of the first victim

Unbelievable that Port wasn’t locked up after the first murder, and that they took the suicide note on the third victim at face value just beggars belief.

Really enjoyed this. Very meta. Breaking the fourth wall and all that. The two leads are outstanding.

Halfway through The Tourist. Man loses his memory after a car crash in the Australian outlook. Has no idea who he is, where he came from or why a northern Irish lad ended up where he is . I'll say no more as each episode finishes on a reveal/cliffhanger that adds to the mystery. So far, so good. I have a theory on who is who, but nothing yet on why. Watch it, you'll understand what I mean.

Watched it in an evening. Enjoyed it a lot. Deviates from the book a bit, but had to I suppose, entertaining and amusing.

Watched first three last night, good stuff. Need to get on the Landscapers after this.

Stay Close pretty terrible really, but an easy watch.

The Sex Lives Of College Girls

Binged the lot late one night on holiday, Mindy Kaling & Justin Noble (Brooklyn 99) vehicle.

Pauline Chalamet (Timothy from Dune's sister) has a quite magnificent set of ***s, sort of but not quite fully released but you get the gist.

It's the kind of smart-ass American thing you'd expect from the two writing / creating it & it's set on Vassar University campus (despite being labelled as a fictional uni - Essex ) which looks absolutely f***ing amazing.

Exactly what you'd expect with the relevant quotas being hit but it's enjoyable enough if you like the stuff you know the creators from. Easy watching, nothing groundbreaking but fun.

Run with the solid 7/10 - I didn't think the acting was that bad from all but the cops, first lads mother I thought very good and there was a good sense of realism, extraordinarily terrible things happening to ordinary people.

The idea that the two most sensible, reasonable and decent characters were two middle class, well educated white blokes gave me a smile. Didn't look up the writer is, but I'd guess it's a middle class, well educated white bloke

Nothing surprises me about the plod, they really do only solve anything when someone actually tells them what happened or is caught red-handed. Watched a few of true life crime programmes last year, only time they catch anyone is when the perp is completely brain dead or there's a grass involved.
