    Series 5 of Black Mirror is excellent as usual (if not a little short....)

    Surprised that we're really enjoying "Gentleman Jack". I wouldn't have bothered if Suranne Jones wasn't in it but it's a great watch.

    Yes, I like this, I like Poliakoff. Iím interested in the post war period it is set in, same as the recent Close to the Enemy. Both interesting and stylish. A bit hit and miss with audiences generally, but a must watch for me.

    Thanks for the recommendation - Summer of Rockets does sound my sort of thing.
    So clever my foot fell off.

    I think it was missed by some as it clashed with Virtues. I suspect Virtues and Summer of Rockets attract similar audiences and not everybody remembers to catch-up.

    The Summer of Rockets was really good, haven't got around to Gentleman Jack yet. Will also be trying out Killing Eve S1/S2 next.

    Enjoying Sneaky Pete S2 at the moment and already looking forward to S3.

    Found a nostalgia trip series on IPlayer, half hour 'review' shows of the 90s, year by year from 1990, the music, news and the like.
    Depends on your age as to its relevance I guess, I was 20 in 1990 so it hit the spot for me.
    Cheers..

    I am finding the new season of Killing Eve on the BBC a bit 'meh' this time.

    It is certainly watchable, but nowhere near as sharp as the original series. Shame.

    EDIT:
    Having now binged the whole series, it does improve as it goes along but series 2 is still not as dark/compelling as series 1.

    It's probably true to say that I'm enjoying the streaming experience from C4 rather less.
    Great fare from Shane Meadows, as usual. Tough to watch in places, but I found some of the montages dragging on a touch.

    I'm just on the last episode of Good Omens on Prime. I don't know how long it's been there as Amazon seem to be pretty rubbish with making their content known, but I apologise if someone has recommended this before.

    It's a Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman collaboration with some Douglas Adams influence and I have to say I've enjoyed it immensely!

    Michael Sheen and David Tennant play an angel and a demon respectively, trying to prevent the apocalypse after the anti-Christ goes missing. There are lots of well-known British, and a few American, faces and voices in the cast and it rattles along at a good pace with many pop-culture references littering the scenery and indeed the script, as you would expect.

    It's only six episodes so not too much time investment required and definitely worth the effort in my humble opinion.

    We've started watching Black List on Sky.
    Quite enjoying it. Nothing too taxing so you don't have to think too much about it.

    Not sure if it's been mentioned but started watching Bad Blood the other night. Basically Canadian mafia / narcos. Pretty good so far after 3 shows

    Recently started watching Chernobyl - as good as everyone says. Dark, atmospheric, grim - but essential viewing.

    Also watched When They See Us from Ava DuVernay on Netflix. She's an absolute master and the acting is incredible. Scary, scary, stuff. Highly recommended!

    Yes, very novel idea, and with the "80 days of rain" record and sociŽty in chaos indeed to close for comfort.

    I'll be ready tonight, with that dog understanding Russian I'm very curious how this develops.

    Great acting by Timothy Spall btw.

    Finished it up tonight... this review is bang in the mark! It is a shame. Letís hope the new Bond film benefits from this show losing the main writing talent

    Far too many good series to watch now, just this page alone would require a full couple of weeks off work to watch.

    I decided to go retro with my latest binge watch. Had full West Wing box set in a drawer for donkeys and never got round to watching it. Have now done 3 seasons in 4 weeks, should be finished by end of July/August.

    The West Wing May just possibly be the finest TV show ever made. Period.

    Humour, pathos, excitement, gripping storylines and an absolutely impeccable ensemble cast.

    Pure viewing joy.

    Savour it.

    Finished this the other week, isnít stunning but definitely worth a watch and certainly enjoyable enough. Just been cancelled by Amazon so the current season is the last.

    Any good New TV Series worth watching

    Catch 22 C4 George Clooney.

    Hoping it will be good.

    P.s. I thought it was and am looking forward to next weekís.

    Surprised myself and enjoyed the Katie Puckrik two parter on BBC 4 on Yacht Rock. I didnít know that ToTo was so responsible for Thriller.

    I like a bit of Sherlock Holmes, and have just discovered a contemporary take on it called "Elementary". It's on Amazon and stars Jonny Lee Miller, Lucy Lui and Aiden Quinn.

    Very well plotted and good, fun entertaining stuff. It sort of shouldn't work, but it really does - and there's seven seasons of it so to last that long you know it has to be pretty good.

    Anyone else watching or seen it?

    Tried it, but just too far from the source material for me to not feel contrived.

    Itís been on Sky for years, watched quite a few of them, enjoyed the early series but got more bizarre as it went on.
