    Watched the first 2 episodes of 7 Seconds on Netflix...so far, so good.

    Billions Season 3 coming to SKY Atlantic on 29/03/18.

    Best thing on TV by miles and miles for me. Paul Giamatti is the finest character working today IMO.

    Really looking forward to the new season of Billions.

    I watched the first episode of Save Me on SkyAtlantic last night...seems like it might be good and has a great cast.

    Not a series, but might be of interest to anyone who did a stint as a squaddy in Northern Ireland. Squaddies on the Frontline, BBC iPlayer.

    Managed to catch the first few episodes of Get Shorty on a flight the other day. Based around the idea of the movie starring Ray Romano and Chris O’Dowd playing a hard man. Really enjoyed it so far, looking forward to watching the rest on the return journey!

    Brazilian dystopian series 3% (available on Netflix) is shaping up nicely. Not the best thing in the world and clearly on a small budget, but it has that bingable quality that you need to watch the next one right away.
    It has bit of a Hunger Games vibe, and I fully expect some Black Mirror twist at the end

    Seven Seconds
    Netflix

    Brilliant grim new york (ok, jersey city...) Crime/detective/internal affairs 10-part series. You get the full story start to end, no need to wait for a second series.

    Both swmbo and I agreed it was one of the best things we had watched in a while. There are a few poor reviews out there but I really cannot think why.

    It's focused around the cover up of an hit&run in which a teenage boy dies.

    Still waiting for Goliath season 2, in the meantime I’ll try 7 seconds...

  9. #1409
    Thought 7 seconds was great, equally 13 reasons why was excellent. Initially wrote it off as some sort of teenage angst-ty thing, but the other half was keen and it turned out to be well worth a watch.

    Just started the first episode of Altered Carbon last night, anyone else have any views?

  10. #1410
    Wasn't a fan...it was missing something for me. I hadn't read the books, so can't comment on how faithful it is to those but overall I thought it was conceptually strong but poorly executed. There's just too many other sci-fi dystopian dramas and films going around.

  11. #1411
    Well that smouldering bonfire just re-ignited big time on Homeland

    Wow.

    13 reasons why is superb, I think it should be mandatory viewing in schools for all 14+ yr olds.

    I thought altered carbon was pretty good. I read the books last year and I feel the tv series I'd having a decent stab at it in broad strokes.

    Started watching 2nd season of Jessica Jones but gave up half way through the first episode. It felt very slow and had non of the attributes of the first season. Maybe I'm being a little harsh but it'll take a while for me to return to it which is a shame as I enjoyed the first season.

    Watching Superstore as well. A nice comedy set in, well a superstore.

    ^^^ I really enjoyed Superstore. One of the best comedies produced in ages (I'm my opinion of course!)

    Really enjoying Seven Seconds, thanks for the tip.
    It's good to see some International casts in these new TV series.

    Save Me with Lenny James was great - all episodes available to stream on Now. OK, a bit implausible at times, very uncomfortable at others but very entertaining throughout. Some good actors involved too.

    I watched the first episode but found the acting to wooden, to many cliches for me. Will they ever run out of bullets!

    I loved Stranger things and am enjoying Better call Saul immensely

    I am only half way through Altered Carbon but not sure I will make it to the end. This piece sums up my feelings about the series very well. Some spoilers ahead:

    Wild Wild Country on Netflix is a really engaging documentary. I am very impressed.
    It concerns a massive new age cult that builds a city in a remote Oregon Valley in the eighties, triggering a serious row with the 40 odd locals in the area.
    Two episodes in and I am hooked. I am finding myself empathising more with the cult than the locals!
    Great soundtrack as well.

    It is good, and so different to anything else I’ve seen.

    It’s probably been mentioned but ‘Detectorists’ is superbly written, gentle and hilarious in equal measure.

    Just finished Fauda (chaos, in Arabic) on Netflix. Israeli series - 12 half hour episodes. Scary, edge of your seat stuff about an Israeli counter-terrorism unit. The team reminded me a bit of the team in Braquo, crossing moral and legal lines to get the job done against thoroughly ruthless enemies.

    Fantastic series. Can't wait for the next season to come out on Netflix, not sure why it hasn't already.

    Homeland has got to be the best thing on TV right now.

    Whole chunks of my life come under the heading "it seemed like a good idea at the time".

    The Looming Tower on Amazon Prime is a very good series about the lack of cooperation between the FBI and the CIA prior to the 9/11 attack on the twin towers.

    On a lighter note, Lee and Dean on C4.

    Comedy about two builders that has just the right balance of laughs and pathos.
    Cheers,

    I watched the first episode and won’t be watching another.

    I found it quite dull to be honest and felt it could have been done in a five minute sketch. I see further episodes as just a rehash of the same joke over again.

    I’m looking forward to the new series of Plebs though.

    The boy can't act! He must have attended the Harrison Ford school of acting.

    As ever, it is absolutely thrilling. Danes is an amazing actress... here face just changes when the is having a mental episode. You honestly believe she is bipolar.

    I haven't got started on Homeland yet, but this comment made me thing of The Bridge (the Danish/Swedish version), which is excellent. I'm sure it used to be on Netflix, but it isn't anymore unfortunately.

    What a treat - to have not seen it before and to be able to watch all three series. The theme tune by The Choir of Young Believers still gives me
    goosebumps.

    I'll warn you now - there's lots of gratuitous female nudity. I hope it doesn't spoil things for you.

    Watching Mindhunter on Netflix and the Amazing Mrs Maisel on Prime. First one is a David Fincher slow burning FBI crime profiling series and the second a really witty comedy set in 1950's NYC. Both are excellent.
    For a change of pace with oodles of violence - the Punisher on Netflix.

    Keeping Faith, BBC i-Player

    An excellent BBC/s4c production called 'Keeping Faith's is available on the BBC i-Player.
    This was never broadcast on mainstream BBC for some reason. Originally it was produced in Welsh but they shot two versions and it's the English language one on the BBC (not dubbed)
    It's an excellent crime drama about a couple who are solicitors in a small town. One morning the husband dissapears and the services revolves around the wife uncovering his secret life.

    8 X 1 hour eoisodes and only available for 4 more weeks.

    Cunk on Britain. Knocks Schama into a cocked hat.
