    There's no doubt that the series is well-made and well-written and Bill Pullman plays the dogged but messed-up detective to perfection. But not really my cup of tea. I watched the first season and started the second, but a story of a child killing his parents is not really my idea of entertainment - so I gave up.

    House of Dragons, if this first episode is anything to go by then we could be in for something special!

    Just watched 'The Sandman' and loved it, I found out two more episodes were aired too, Watched them last night!!, Can't wait for S2

    I also watched 'Night Sky' and loved it, Season 2 was coming out in 2024 but I read a few days ago that it's been scrapped

    Gangs Of London on Sky Atlantic also looks very promising. I realise its now two years old but its new to me.
    The only jarring note (entertaining but still jarring) was when Elliot took on and beat half a dozen or more Albanians in the pub with just a dart. That sequence took it from a gritty realistic drama into daft Hollywood territory, but I'll stick with it for now.

    I agree with what you have said about Elliot and its a shame they decided to do that in episode one. Stick with it though, I promise it gets better & better

    It wasn't the violence per se that jarred, to be expected from the series title alone. It was the unrealistic hollywood style one man taking on many and winning that jarred. Thoroughly enjoyed it otherwise.

    The Secrets She Keeps on BBC1 is very gripping and thrilling, to be polite.

    We watched the first series on iplayer before seeing the second one.

    Were Scher and Lange evil or just nuts?

    The selection of headline acts was unlikely to emulate the peace, love, anti-war vibe of the original. Holding a peace candle vigil that lit the bonfires. Crazy!

    Being a fan of Bosch novels and the TV series, I've ventured into the Lincoln Lawyer series of novels, so I was interested to find a series on Netflix.

    Pretty good, a similar sort of vibe to the Bosch TV series, but obviously framed around Mickey Haller, the defence attorney.

    From what I recall the series follows the book fairly well.

    Not finished S1 yet, but there's a second series on the way and going on the first, I shall watch that too.

    Mayor of Kingstown is very good.
    Starring Jeremy Renner & I believe it's by the same creators as Yellowstone (which is also excellent).
    I'm watching on Paramount+ (via Sky Cinema) - season 4 of Yellowstone is also appearing on there now.

    Lord of the rings: The Rings of Power

    Was tempted to make a whole new thread but wasn't sure if there'd be as many die hard fans as myself

    Anyone been watching the new Amazon series? How'd you find it, expectation vs reality?

    Personally I'm a huge Tolkien fan and long time lover of the Lord of the rings. Although it's quite different, I'm genuinely loving the new series. The level of detail and links to other Tolkien pieces is great.

    I think it seems to be a bit marmite at the minute with fans either loving or hating it!

    Yellowstone.

    Not at all what I expected and all the better for it.

    Neo-Western where Kevin Costner is a mean bastard, with a mean bastard head cowboy working for him, an ex navy seal son who is mean as fcc and a daughter who makes them ALL look like choirboys!

    Were watching it as were Tolkien fans too (made a trip to Hobbiton). Jury is out with us so far. Slow start but Im accepting they are building various plots and characters, so hopefully it will speed up.

    Enjoying House of Dragon and just started on Yellowstone which is also good.

    Agreed.
    I have just finished this (S1) and thoroughly enjoyed it, I also thought the series had a 'Bosch-like' vibe about it.
    Looking forward to S2.

    Yeah absolutely, a lot of character / story line building at the minute so I think it'll start to pick up more and more. Few guesses as to who certern characters may be!

    I'm watching it but I don't know why. It's not even (quite) in the 'so bad it's good' camp. If it was a 6-parter I'd have ditched it but I'm 2/3 in now.

    Only a short series of half a dozen episodes but I have loved Pistol on Hulu.

    The story of the Sex Pistols adapted from Steve Jones book Lonely Boy.

    Took a while to get used to actors playing the protagonists but they made a superb job of it, especially Lydon and McLaren.
    Cheers,
    Neil.

    If you like hyperbolic fantasy nonsense, Lady Sod and I have just finished an 8-parter from DC (Comics) stable:

    'Peacemaker' picks up on the douchebag anti-hero's post-'Suicide Squad' life, backstory, &c., and truly, madly runs with it - packing it with bad music, bad jokes, bad sex, very bad people, lashings of gratuitous graphic violence, and a certain amount of nuanced redemption...

    Creator, James Gunn, wrote it during lockdown for his own amusement, and apparently never for a moment intended - much-less expected - it to be filmed. It is the most 'zeitgesty' of any series or film in this or Marvel's vast, rambling genre, and amazingly - not the worse for it.

    The fact that John Cena can actually really act, mock himself, and then act some more is initially surprising, and then you remember what wrestling actually is...

    Watching Mike on Disney at the moment. About the rise and fall of Mike Tyson. Not sure if its completely accurate but a really good watch so far (3 in) and a subject I have a lot of interest in.
