    I started watching Lucifer last night on recommendation from this very thread. I must say it's really quite amusing and entertaining.

    Why the hell have I not watched Parks and Recreation before now?? Despite being American and female, Amy Poehler is genuinely hilarious, plays her character to perfection here.

    Mrs Banana and I are really enjoying Brooklyn Nine Nine at the moment - very funny, likeable characters, fabulous ensemble cast, and Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero) is not only brilliant but smokin' hot. Even the missus agrees.

    Earlier in the week we watched The Miniaturist on Iplayer. An enjoyable two-parter with the fragrant Anya Taylor-Joy in the principal role and some beautifully designed though agreeably austere Flemish sets.

    Having recently git Netflix and being a Marvel fan I have watched some of their series.
    Iron Fist started off quite well but then went down hill.
    Luke Cage was pretty good.
    Jessica Jones was very good with David Tennant as the baddy. A 2nd series is coming out soon.

    punisher was very good, even the mrs was always asking to watch the next one
    Unabomber was average, watched it to the end to see what happened but was not great
    Sinner was also very good, its only 8 episodes and worth a watch

    Great news! Love that show.
    The new Black Mirror series on Netflix is excellent too.
    Cheers..

    Any good New TV Series worth watching

    A few episodes into season 2 of The Tunnel which is pretty promising. Love the two lead characters in this.

    First two episodes of the current series of Inside No.9 have been very good. The last one was quite moving. All are currently available on BBC Iplayer.

    La Mante is good enough. And now watching another French Netflix show called Frozen Dead. Excellently shot and an interesting plot so far.

    Mr Robot is a good series. Just finished season 3. Can be heavy going at times and requires you to pay attention otherwise you can easily lose the thread of what is going on. Once you get it into it, it is thoroughly enjoyable and fascinating.

    The use of surround sound in it (for those with 5.1 systems) is particularly good for a TV series.

    For a lighter bit of entertainment you can dip in and out of, The Good Place is quite good. Only a few episodes in at the moment.

    Has anyone mentioned Black Mirror??? Very cleverly written but quite dark and disturbing.
    Star trek Discovery is still damn good....

    Just completed Ser 1 of The Fall (crime drama set in Belfast).

    (It's on Amazon Prime).

    Great so far, and a departure from a lot of the 'boobs & bullets' type of American series

  21. #1271
    Indeed an excellent series. Gillian Anderson's character is quite a man eater :)

    Can anyone recommend some good comedies on at the moment?

    We are coming to the end of Brooklyn Nine Nine for the moment...

    'The Sinner' on Netflix is worth a moment of your time.

    Only one season so far but it's been renewed for a second.

    Hard Sun - all episodes available on iplayer - so much potential although the ending I quite liked but apparently there are 5 series planned!

    Derry Girls - brilliant!

    Is this as good as the advert makes it seem?

    Every time I see the advert I feel I should start watching it.

    I have just watched up to the end of Season 2 of Colony (season 3 due shortly).

    A very interesting take on "grown-up" sci fi.

    Anyone else enjoying this one?

    Have you watched 'Superstore' which is currently on every night on ITV2 of all places?
    I gave it a punt over the holidays and myself and the Mrs are really enjoying it. An American show that likes taking a funny look / the piss out of America itself!

    Just gone through both of those.... a French take on 'Scandinavian noir'. Generally a lot more guns involved and more beating up the suspects in the froggy offerings but not bad. Certainly a lot better than 99% of the rubbish 'cop' series from the US.

    There's another new French series just been added to Netflix, The Break, that I might start tonight.

    Been meaning to check out both of these. Black Mirror looks intriguing and was always as Star Trek fan and am missing some good Sci Fi in my life!

    McMafia is pretty enjoyable. It's a lot like Billions IMO - cliched and by-numbers, but entertaining high-budget fluff. (James Norton is a bit weak as the lead - defintely no future Bond).

    Audrey Fleurot isn't bad either, recently watched Les Témoins (Witnesses: A Frozen Death) with her as well.

    Chilling stuff.

    Just finished Ozark, really enjoyed it.

    Up to date with Star Trek Discovery, very good.

    Watched all three series of The Bridge again, even better second time around.

    Debating watching the French series mentioned above.

    Just watched Snowfall about the drug/crack trade in LA in the 80’s. Very good indeed and well worth a look!

    ‘Godless’ on Netflix is a quality show, never thought I’d get so into a Western, well worth a look.

    Damnation, on netflix :-

    Seth Davenport is a man masquerading as a small-town Iowa preacher in hopes of starting a full-blown insurrection against the status quo. Focused on his mission, he is unaware that an industrialist tycoon has hired a professional strikebreaker named Creeley Turner to stop the uprising by any means necessary. But unbeknownst to those around them, these two men already share a secret, bloody past. This epic saga about the secret history of the 1930s American heartland centers on the mythic conflict and bloody struggle between big money and the downtrodden, God and greed, charlatans and prophets.

    so far it has been excellent, quite of lot of sudden shocking violence but a good cast including Christopher Heyerdahl (the excellent "swede" from Hell on Wheels (another must-see series)) continue to impress.

    regards

    Saggs

    Definitely. Much more like classic Star Trek (and obviously a link-in to an episode from the original series). They really need to keep away from space whales, singing trees and other weak plot-devices.

    Now onto ep. 3 of 'The Break'.... Belgium (thought it was French at first - languages not my thing). IMHO better than Frozen Dead. Worth a try as well.

    We watched the first series. Started off OK, then went downhill rapidly. I think they looked at Homeland but then completely failed to produce anything remotely realistic or watchable, even by the standards of that kind of thing.

    Watched the first 'Kiri' last night on Ch4 catch-up (the second one was on last night - Weds 19th).

    It started pretty well. All about an abducted young girl in foster care and the impact on the social worker etc.

    I quite like Sarah Lancashire's TV stuff, so I may be a bit biased though.
