Thread: Any good New TV Series worth watching

    Both men are my age so I relate to their health issues, humour and feelings of 'past their sell by date'. Just very good understated British television at its very best!
    I was taken with Bob talking about his childhood and losing his father in a car crash when Bob was so young.

    Usk looked beautiful. Was recently on the neighbouring Brecon-Monmouth canal.

    Also the same age, so perhaps tugging the sentimentality of older men? I wouldn't call myself sentimental, but I really enjoy this programme, Timothy and Prue's canal trips and Portaloo's train journeys. As you say, human, understated, wanderings, individual exploration and discovery.

    Bob Mortimer is naturally funny. I love his sense of the absurd.

    Big Night Out last night. Same old, same old from nearly 30 years ago. Still makes me snigger and snort though.

    Bit to girly at times, nevertheless very funny.
    I was mainly interested because they involved Lenny Bruce, and his character, although tone downed, is great.
    Weíve just started watching this, brilliant and funny in lots of ways.

    Just started 'Glitch' on Netflix, only a few episodes in and it has promise, small town Australia, 6 long dead people dig themselves out of the cemetery for an as yet unknown reason.

Then realized that my oldest had watched the whole series already, and I'd just watched the final episode. Ho hum.

    Sorry if it's been mentioned in the previous 46 pages, but we're really enjoying The Trip with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. On Amazon and Netflix.

    A bit of a nuisance that. I donít mind paying for entertainment occasionally and did buy series 1 and 2 from Amazon only to sign up for a months free trial of Netflix this weekend and see itís included!

    Started watching "The Family" on Netflix yesterday - it's a limited time documentary.

    Intriguing and scarcely believable at times, if it weren't for the real life footage and interviews. Quite an eye-opener!

    Succession is worth a look. About the head of a global media empire based in manhattan, and how his pampered/ungrateful family argue and backstab over who will or won't be his eventual successor. Humorous in parts and quite eye opening when you see how they manipulated news to suit their own agenda (probably very close to reality)

    For anyone interested in true crime, Murder Mountain is worth a watch on Netflix.

    And for a bit of drama, Euphoria is great, really interesting and graphic insight into teenage life, but not your typical teenage angst tv show.

    For people who have watched The Boys, have any of you watched The Umbrella Academy? Is it similar, any good?

    Yes, enjoyed both. Very good and very different.
    Both dark, umbrella, also funny moments and a welcome change from the usual super hero BS we see.

    Watched first few episodes of new Mindhunter last night, superb as usual. Definitely recommend! The first season stood up to a fresh viewing last week in anticipation too, I really love it. Great premise, characters, dialogue, tone, and lost of all - score and soundtrack!

    The second season has started well with some new developments and the long-standing tease of a potential killer continuing to play out. Can't wait to see where the rest of the season takes us.

    I'm 3 episodes in 'Better Than Us', a Russian Netflix series, which is shaping up quite nicely. It deals with Asimov's 3 laws of robotics and if you liked Humans, Westworld, Ex Machina, Blade Runner, etc., it's probably for you. Also, because Russian women.

    t j? I quite like it to be honest, its slightly different from the norm for this sort of thing being set in canada. Think of it as a modern day Narcos, season one is based on true events and I believe the 2nd season (which I'm part way through) is entirely fictional. Kim Coates (sons of anarchy) is the lead and is pretty good.

    Season Two of TRAPPED on Amazon Prime. Season One wowed me, not quite as astounding this time out but still very good. Except ... I hate hate HATE stupid characters who do things that beyond common sense. Couple of instances of that.

    Pennyworth is worth a watch. Quirky but compelling.

    Just finished "The Spy" on Netflix about the Israeli spy Eli Cohen. Sacha Baron Cohen plays him. I thought it was superb.

    Just watched Carnival Row, https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0489974/, on Prime UK. Really enjoyed it. Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "flying naughtywordstartingwithF". You'll see what I mean.

    I agree, it's excellent, Baron Cohen is a little bit Borat at times, but not enough stop you believing the story.

    It's a great story, based on real events, and made by someone with a great CV including Prisoners of War, which became Homeland, in the West.

    I have watched the first 2 and am struggling a bit. Story so far isnít all that compelling but the main issue is Orlando Bloom. I am having a hard time with him playing a tough cockney copper. He just doesnít seem very good in it so far. Worth sticking with ?

    That looks superb, any idea when “this fall” its launching? And where? (Would’ve assumed sky as its HBO but does the BBC connection mean terrestrial?

    I was like that at the start but an now looking forward to the next series. The mixture of mythical fantasy and modern refugee issues I found compelling.

    Try The Boys on Prime. It is a bit like an adult premise of the book Steelhart (superheroes gone bad) Just finished it and awaiting the next season.

    Documentary series offering new insights into The Troubles in Northern Ireland.
