    Snowpiercer on Netflix.

    Odd idea. First episode is a bit slow and confusing, then it becomes strangely addictive.

    Succession is excellent, up to season 2

    Bosch on amazon prime is also a good cop show too

    Agree with Snowpiecer, stick with it, good show with unusual turns.

    The Boys on Amazon is great and that coming from me who doesn’t like superhero stuff! The superheros or ‘supes’ are vain, out of control, management managed all for ratings and to sell merchandise. Give it a good, first few minutes is like WTF!

    My BIL is a huge comic book fan and apparently the story is that the writer of the boys approached DC to pitch this as if superman, batman, Wonder Woman etc were superheroes but were human in their attitudes and “weaknesses” (vanity, arrogance etc).

    Of course DC flat out rejected the idea so the boys was born where clearly homelander is superman, dark noir is batman etc etc.


    And season two lands on Friday too.

    The first few minutes had me hooked and set the scene for the rest of the series. There are some real laugh out loud scenes..........but be warned that it is not at all suitable for kids.

    Fingers crossed season 2 is as good.

    Bosch on Amazon was rather good, so was Goliath. Great soundtrack as well. Hap and Leonard (again, Amazon) has a great first season. 2 and 3 are more average.

    Just finished watching Bosch, really enjoyed it. It unfolded really well and the multiple threads of stories gave it some depth.

    Agree Bosch is top notch. Also enjoyed Ozark, succession and just started Gomorrah, which is tremendous.

    Just watched 2 seasons of Jack Ryan for the second time, on this occasion with the Mrs! Thoroughly enjoyed it again, fair to say the longform medium of television suits the character and story really, really, well.

    I have just found this, so working our way through S1 now.

    I am properly confused what I think about it, as it is really not my thing but I am quite enjoying it and cant wait to watch the next....

    It is very 'Marvel meets Wes Anderson' in its style.

    It’s brilliant, season 2 is even better. Great show. The boys season 2 is back next month as well I think.

    Just starting watching the Falklands episodes - very good, made back then and presenters were there. Officers have very posh voices!

    Seem to be quite a lot of comments on this so I'm quoting you a bit arbitrarily. I just watched S1 and S2 together and thought it was excellent. Really well made, with a great soundtrack too. I'm not the biggest fan of generic superhero type stuff so I put off watching S1 when it first came out, assuming it would be an edgy and slightly "woke" X-men knock-off, but it's really not that at all. It draws a lot of quite obvious influences, has tons of pop culture references etc., but it's not derivative. It has a lot of original ideas and some unique takes on sci-fi tropes.

    I particularly enjoyed trying to count the number of subtle Back to the Future references in s2e1.

    Just done 4 seasons of " line of duty "
    Normally not the type of thing I watch but really got into it.
    Would definitely recommend.

    Check out Dark, German with eng subs, but you can get dual audio. Very different, and spins your brain in circles.

    Just finished 2 seasons of Umbrella Academy which was pretty good.

    Prior to that I watched Mrs America with the wife which I didn't think would be my cup of tea, but which I thought was absolutely brilliant. Mad Men vibes but with added political angle.

    Looking forward to new season of The Boys soon.

    Another vote for Bosch - been watching for a while & now on Season 6.
    Resisted watching it initially as the title didn't exactly inspire me (thinking kettle / hammer drill), but really enjoyng it.

    Great series.

    I sometimes struggled to stay with the plot due to the twists and turns (around Series 5 from memory..), but still very enjoyable even when I didn't fully know what was going on.

    Love the way Erving says 'Dee-Tech-Teeve'. Always makes me smile.

    Heads up for anyone who doesn't log into iPlayer regularly: they've just added all 4 seasons of Battlestar Galactica (the 2003 miniseries version, not the original). If you like sci-fi and haven't already seen it, it's excellent. Many consider it to be the best sci-fi TV series produced to date.

    I'll probably watch it again as it's been a few years since I last watched it.

    I just watched the first two (of 10) episodes of Away from Netflix, starring Hilary Swank as the commander of the first mission to Mars. OUTSTANDING!

    Another vote. Reminds me. I started rewatching a couple of months ago and got distracted. Excellent series for me.

    I was surprised the Scandinavian detective series The Bridge didn’t seem to be on any streaming service.

    It’s on iPlayer just now and definitely worth a watch.

    Currently watching The Fall on Netflix. Just as good second time round.

    A couple of other Scandi detective series I've watched and enjoyed recently are Deadwind (from Finland) and The Valhalla Murders (from Iceland).

    Also a Spanish series filmed around Galicia called Bitter Daisies (O Sabor das Margaridas), with a clever plot twist I wasn't at all expecting.

    Will continue with S2 though and see how things go....

    I was similar to you on Preacher, I have tried to force myself, and it's OK but I ended up giving up on it. It just didn't click with me.

    It is a fantastic show! The sequel series, Ashes to Ashes, is also very good.

    We’ve been watching Schitt’s Creek on Netflix which is quite silly but really good fun.

    You can buy the Bridge on Amazon video, 1 & 2 are on Iplayer, my all time favourite scandi it is brilliant.

    I believe the Porsche was auctioned off at Goodwood, by the actor who plays Saga, with a clause that the buyer had to make it available for filming if required.

    There was an Anglo-French reboot of The Bridge called The Tunnel, with the dead 'body' found at the exact mid-point of a service shaft for the Eurotunnel. The French detective is played by Clémence Poésy, who drives a 944.

    One of the very, very few series I have evr watched more than once.

    So far I think I've watched it in its entirety four times, and Ashes to Ashes probably three times.

    Just sublime TV - perfect.

    I've delighted you enjoyed too.

    And a third season of Life on Mars has apparenty been commissioned...
    So clever my foot fell off.

    Not new but the beeb has just put all four series of Battlestar Galactica on the iPlayer.

    It passed me by first time so I started watching last night and I'm hooked. Totally brilliant.

    BSG is one of the finest TV series ever made, of any genre.

    Make sure you watch the whole lot.


    A friend of mine did his Doctoral Thesis with BSG as a basis, the depth of the show is quite amazing really.


    (And before anyone thinks it's just a reboot of the 70's camp sci-fi show - it most certainly isn't in any meaningful sense!)
    So clever my foot fell off.
