    Thanks for that, I didn't know it was back. Been a very interesting experiment.

    It's a black comedy, dark in parts, violent and sweary.
    I'm coming to the end of S1 and am really enjoying it. Watched episode 7 last night, wow - what an episode of television!

    Just finished watching it over the weekend!
    Brilliant insight in to what goes on behind the scenes and some of the inter team/driver rivalry you donít see on the normal coverage.
    Some stunning photography and slo mo action
    Still not sure how Grojean kept his seat though!

    Apparently Mercedes and Ferrari will be in the 2nd series

    Was it far better than you expected?

    Iím 2/3 of the way through and it really is completely compelling.

    Iím amazed how much access the production company got, and at the truly exceptional construction and production values of each episode.

    I genuinely donít think it matters whether you are an F1 fan or not, this is brilliant television (once again) from Netflix.

    I am also certain this has greatly rekindled my interest in Formula One. Probably because the people behind the scenes are just as interesting as the drivers.
    So clever my foot fell off.

    Definitely Iíd kind of dismissed it because the top 2 teams werenít in it but think it was better for it. Got to see a lot more of the smaller teams and Guenther was very entertaining and brutal :)

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Very sobering indeed that they are now 63 years old. It will make compelling viewing, Iím sure.

    Dead To Me on Netflix. Christina Applegate turns in a faultless performance - a truly brilliant comedy actress.

    For those that are interested the Deadwood movie is on Sky Atlantic. Havenít watched it yet but the reviews suggest it is really good.

    Have Deadwood all ready to go, seems well received so far which is pleasing.




    Been watching Black Monday on Sky Atlantic, very funny. "nobody knows what caused black monday....till now" Think of a mix of trading places and Wolf of wolf street.


    trailer.... lots or swearing, I mean lots Don't play this if your nan is nearby.

    Deadwood has been on my list for a while and have only just realised itís downloadable on SkyGo so thatís now queued. However, can you watch the deadwood movie in isolation or should I watch the seriesí first? (I travel a lot so a lot of good binge watching time )

  15. #2165
    series first, too much goes on that you might have spoilt by the film to start at the end.

    Definitely series first, absolutely superb show! Only criticism is that it finished/was cancelled abruptly, hoping the movie will help with that.

    Definitely series first. I have only got to watch about 20mins of the movie so far. It’s not light on flashbacks or exposition!

    I'm very much enjoying the current offering from Shane Meadows on C4 - The Virtues.

    It's probably true to say that I'm enjoying the streaming experience from C4 rather less.

    Ive just knocked off season 2 of Cobra Kai on YouTube. It's cringeworthy at times (the less than subtle references to the original karate kid) but still great fun.

    For anyone not subscribed to YouTube premium (their Netflix style advert free subscription service) it's worth noting that at the end of August they are releasing both season 1 and 2 for free. Both on for a limited time only so stick it in the diary. ;)

    Its really helped me get back in to it.

    All the drivers have their PR assistant holding a mic in their face to make sure they don't say anything stupid - none of their personalities show any more!

    Good Omens on Netflix is excellent, if Gaiman / Pratchett is your sort of thing.

    Any good New TV Series worth watching

    Been watching Delhi Crime on Netflix and boy is it an eye opener. The crime had a lot of details reported about it and this series follows the investigation from a police and political point of view. Some of the policing when compared to what I see on tv for both the uk and the USA certainly brings to the front what they were and are up against.

    Limited time release mini series ĎWhen they see usí on Netflix. About the Central Park 5.

    A fantastic series that makes you angry too. Watched all of it yesterday. Some brilliant acting portrayals in it.

    When they see us - on Netflix. Very powerful stuff and quite unbelievable...

    Anyone watching Chernobyl should also listen to the accompanying podcast, which is essentially a series of conversations with the writer. Thereís one per episode, and they shed a lot of light on the production and the history. It adds an awful lot, and will make you even more amazed by the show.

    I'm generally not into Pratchett but enjoyed Good Omens very much. It is fun to play a game of spot the cameo performance...including voices. I gather it will be coming to BBC TV sooner or later.

    I watched Ep1 this evening and was distinctly underwhelmed. Nothing happened, it really didn't.

    Sorry it didn't come up to your expectations. I'll agree that it's not exactly thrilling, but I did find it intriguing and I was amused.

    I'm currently watching The Good Cop on Netflix. It's been around for a while but I've only just got around to trying it. It's created and written by the guy that also created Monk, so it's kind of humorous, light-hearted stuff.

    It's about a straight-laced, honest cop (Josh Groban, the singer) who lives with his Dad who is a disgraced, ex-con, dirty cop (Tony Danza).

    It's very easy watching and charming but don't expect high drama! Chances are though, if you enjoyed Monk you'll like this.


    EDIT : Just found out this was cancelled after the first season, very disappointing!

    really enjoyed the first season but struggled with 2nd? will need to give it a go again.

    currently on episode 4 of Happy on netflix, bizzarly entertaining and for some reason reminds me of the umbrella group series.

    I enjoyed it, though it was turbo bizzare in places.

    It has a 'Crank' theme to it.

It was interesting to see some famiiar NJ places (like the Bada Bing, etc.) There were a few story lines that I'd completely forgotten about. The Saints of Newark, a Sopranos prequel is coming out later this year, looking forward to seeing that.

    Hell on Wheels was a favorite, great all the way to the finale

    S4 of Animal Kingdom looks very good so far (two episodes in).

    Not new but I've just watched band of brothers again.

    Simply the best TV I've ever seen.
