    Just watched episode 1 and really enjoyed it. Got 2 flights tonight, each slightly longer than an hour, so that's sorted out the in-flight entertainment.

    Thanks

    I'm really enjoying Blindspot ... Good fun....

    We've been watching 11.22.63. (Or 22.11.63 in the uk...;))

    Go in a with an open and forgiving mind about time travel on TV/film and it's definitely worth a watch. Some excellent Stephen King moments and a lovely rendition of the time period.

    Just 'binged' through the first series of Billions starring Damien Lewis and Paul Giamatti . I thought it was brilliant (hence me not being able to drag myself away from it, HIGHLY recommended

    I urge everyone to watch 'camping' a 6 part Julia Davis comedy, so funny (adult) it builds slowly but the last couple of episodes are hilarious...
    It's on Atlantic ( NowTV ) I think.

    Yep. Thoroughly enjoyed it. St John's Wood-born Lewis does an unbelievable Yank accent.

    I thought he really was American when I first saw him in Band of Brothers (which is also a fantastic TV series).

    His fellow old-Etonian Dominic West also does an extremely convincing American accent in The Wire and The Affair.

    I watched this last night & really enjoyed it. Excellent performances with some laugh out loud moments. And the typical Julia Davis undercurrent of slightly sinister evil

    Not sure if Gomorrah has been mentioned but it is one of the best thing on TV over the last couple of years.

    Started reading that on holiday last week. Very good and gave me a great vision of the past when he went back. I definitely wanted to try a root beer!

    There was also a lot of mentions of IT with the clown, some of the victims etc. I'll be checking the series out for sure.

    Have you watched it all or just the first few episodes? If you have some left then it gets better and so so dark. 😀 I've watched them all twice now, once with the Mrs who was squirming, and once with a mate and we were pissing ourselves .
    Cheers..

    Wayward pines is worth a look, should be able to tell pretty quickly if you'll like it or not. I've been hooked on various Alaskan reality shows lately too, railroad Alaska, life below zero, building Alaska etc.

    I quite liked the first series of WP but tried the new one and couldn't get on with it. Agreed on the Alaskans! Can't wait for Gold Rush to come back..... Deadliest Catch is addictive too..

    Ahh didn't realise the second series was out, must admit I didn't like the thought of it but difficult to say anything about that show without spoilers.

    Hooked on Gomorrah now thanks to this thread!

    Watched it all on the Sky box set & just started second time round. Sky call it 'Series 1' so maybe more to come?

    Just a couple we've really enjoyed recently:

    Peaky Blinders
    Narcos
    Better Call Saul
    Luther


    Some classics:

    Breaking Bad
    The Wire
    Sopranos

    There so much good TV out there at the moment that we hardly ever watch films these days.

    have to add Preacher..........

    up to #3 and though slightly different to the comics it's pretty good.....

    the authors are producers so have backed it....

    Tulip while nice is not quite smokin' hot enough to be totally irresistible (or blonde enough either) .....

    Cassidy is excellent ...jury out on Jesse for now but think he will develop OK

    I tried 11.22.63 on TV after starting the book in Menorca last week. I didn't like it very much apart from the scenery! Is it worth sticking with?

  27. #127
    Gomorrah it's a top watch

  28. #128
    I'm halfway through the first series of 'Powers', it's pretty good. Bit of a different take on the super hero theme. Stars Shalto Copley (district 9, hardcore henry) as the good guy and Eddie Izzard as a pretty good badie.

    Stranger Things on Netflix. 2 episodes in bloody brilliant
    Done a great job of setting it in the 80's down to the titles and electro soundtrack, cast is really good especially the kids.
    Like a cross between Xfiles and ET - great stuff

    "Stranger Things" on netflix, very good, set in 1980, great music from that era, and incidental music that is very tangerine dream/ john carpenter, the story is addictive, which has elements of, wait for it,,, ET, the goonies, firestarter, and the odd stephen king movie! well worth watching

    The Last Man On Earth. Comedy. It's really quite downbeat in parts, and quite a cynical watch at times, but I love it.

    I recommend Ray Donovan, not sure if anyone else has watched it but Liev Shreiber is a great actor. Very cool, calm and collected in playing a Hollywood fixer. Midway through Season 4 and still loving it!

    Braquo back on French TV in September (final series it seems), hopefully on Sky/Virgin somewhere too.

    French series. Very anti-hero like The Shield, but very French at the same time!

    My current favourite, especially S1 and 2.

    Yep, three episodes in - an homage to eighties horror/thriller/sci-fi films and series, a cross between E.T. and the X Files. Winona Ryder and Matthew Modine in the cast.

    Another +1 from me as I just watched the last episode yesterday. Well worth viewing and even moreso if you've got 4K!

    Contagion on e4 is pretty good.
    Ep1 is on catch up from last week and ep2 is on +1 at ten.

    Its a remake of the Belgian viral gore-fest Cordon which was very good indeed.
