    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!

    Dead to me, is pretty good on the strength of the first couple of episodes.

    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
