    2nd series is a bit more far fetched but a mindless romp nonetheless.
    We just enjoyed it with a less critical mindset.

    Blue Eye Samurai on Netflix. Stunning animation.
    But donít sit down to watch it with your kids, as itís full of violence and there are quite a few sex scenes.

    Started watching Dexter (now on Netflix) - as I missed it the first time round, so started from S1E1, only 95 more episodes to go!

    Dexter is very good (but I felt tailed off when John Lithgow entered the script - prob around series 6/7?)

    Boy Swallows Universe was good viewing for a limited series.

    1980s Brisbane cool!

    Some great performances, surprised to see Bryan Brown is 76.

    Watched masters of the airÖ. A bit puke inducing (too many poignant salutes for my liking)

    However, I lapped it up and smashed it two days !!!

    Whoever directed didn't like the Brits much!

    They were exceptionally braveÖ

    I found it fairly enjoyable but didn't really connect with any of the characters to be honest. I suppose I always compare this sort of thing to "Band of brothers" which to me was epic.

    Lessons in Chemistry on AppleTV

    Didn't think I would like this but found it funny with a good storyline, female chemist in a mans world, set in the 50s that kept us hooked. Based on a best selling book of the same name.

    And it has a gorgeous dog (who narrates one episode) woof woof!

    I've not seen Masters of the Air, but the trailer doesn't look as good as BoB.

    The Pacific wasn't as good, either, so I'm not going to pay for an Apple TV subscription to find out how good it is.

    I assume you are talking about BoB (1969)

    I've not seen Masters of the Air (and doubt I will) but the difference will be that the superb BoB aerial sequences were filmed using real aircraft and I'm pretty sure MOA will be CGI.
    Cheers,
    Neil.

    No sorry, Band of Brothers, not Battle of Britain.

    The walking dead - The ones who live, is decent, fills in the back story with Rick - it is only 6 episodes, ends well. Not as good as the early seasons but worth a watch if you invested the time in the original series.

    The flying sequences in MOA are truly superb though - incredibly convincing and visually stunning.

    While BoB is seminal and can never be filmed again, the intensity achieved in MOA is next level and Iíve never seen anything like it before.

    It doesnít look like CGI.
    So clever my foot fell off.

    "Beef" on Netflix is a mad series - so well written and acted. Highly recommend.

    "Parks and Recs" is a funny watch - you'll get so see Chris Pratt and Aubrey Plaza in early roles, and Nick Offerman is an absolute genius.

    We all know about "The Last of Us" series 1. Will be re-watching soon in preparation for series 2 next year.

    First few series of "Banshee" were good and worth a watch, but then the format was just repeated for later series.

    First 2 series of "Hannibal" were excellent, but then for me series 3 went far too dark and off the rails and stopped watching.
    Mr Inbetween is outstanding!

    The last scene of the last series is one of the best I've ever seen. Unless you've watched the whole series, you just don't understand the significance of when Ray looks directly into the camera and AWOLNation "RUN" kicks in. Sooooo sinister it literally had me shouting "wooooo" at the screen in disbelief. Incredible.

    This is very good and something a little different, great acting and script.

    Shogun is superb and very surprising coming from Disney.

    Always recommending Mr Inbetween, again Disney!

    Watching Halo on paramount which is made really well and i love the games.

    not sure if it's been mentioned (by me or others) but The Kominski Method on Netflix is very good viewing.

    Chuck Lorre produced, starring Michael Douglas as an LA Acting Coach. Very good 'buddy' vibe and very well written. Comedic with some semi serious aspects; given the ageing male cast, many of the issues/discussions struck home.

    3 series of around 8 25 minute episodes. Makes a change from a lot of the darker and more serious/violent stuff doing the rounds.

    Just watched Band of Brothers again on Sky platform, truly epic, quite possibly the best TV ever, up there with Breaking Bad and series 1-7 GOT imo

    Series 1-7 of Chicago PD is now available on Amazon Prime. Hard nosed cops pushing the boundaries of what is acceptable - but great fun nonetheless!

    I've just started watching this - Not really sure what I think yet, two episodes in.

    Also watching Gray - Quite enjoying it as it's nice to see an older woman play a sexy, dangerous character - I'm not sure whether she's an anti-hero or a villain.

    Interesting comparisons. While I've not watched Breaking Bad (and probably never will now), I would have skipped Band of Brothers based on a comparison with Game of Thrones, which I tired of by the end of season 1.

    I would agree, though, that Band Of Brothers is one of the best series ever.

    Yeh stick with the 3 body problem if you're a fan of sci fi. First few episodes arent great, but it gets better. And if you know where this story goes as I do..... Man. Genius sci-fi

    Probably been mentioned already but James May's Man in Japan is really good - on Prime.

    He also did Man in India and Italy series which were both good too.

    Watched the beginning as far as when what looked like two 14 year olds in blue uniforms talking appeared and switched off.
    Started out with nothing. Still have most of it left.

    Watched the first episode of 'Blue Lights' (series 2) last night on BBC.

    I enjoyed Series 1 and this new series seems promising too....

    Iíve got episode 1 on now, and the fact Iím typing this means Iím not gripped. Canít remember series 1, but felt I was gripped earlier.

    It did start great though!

    I'm 2 episodes into Baby Reindeer on netflix, it's very weird. I can't work out whether to admire or feel sorry for the characters

    Anyone else watching this?
