    I've just finished Pine Gap.

    I enjoyed it, although there are some rather shouty performances.

    I finished it and really enjoyed it. I think it's a caper more than anything else.

    Definitely not his best work, we watched (I think) three episodes and SWMBO wonít watch any more.

    Just coming to the end of Barry starring Bill Hader. Superb dark comedy and thoroughly recommended

    Totally agree Gareth. A thoroughly enjoyable series. I loved the fact that there was some real seriousness and emotion in between the satire.

    Shame it has come to an end... faaaaaaaaaaaaark!

    This is a series I have thoroughly enjoyed from the very beginning and whilst it has veered off course a few times the central themes the writers brought to the screen are hugely enjoyable to watch.

    Season 3 (just finished) started off with darker tone but mid-way through it really kicked on and last nights finale (well, it was released Wednesday 31st) was, for me, a complete joy to watch. I know the reviews for it have been pretty dire but I loved it and if the series does end there (as is heavily rumoured) then I for one will really miss it.

    It's one of the very best series that came along in Covid times and was just the tonic for many people.

    'Once upon a time in Northern Ireland' on the BBC IPlayer.

    I found this series very absorbing and quite harrowing, as individuals explain their experiences and involvement in the 'Troubles'. Certainly opens your eyes into the mentality and brutality of sectarian violence - and the heartbreak it caused.

    True Detective

    Has anyone watched this? I've finished Episode 4 and while I like the murder investigation bit etc (set in the past), the interviews with the 2 main cops set in the present are just tedious and could be cut completely. The IMDB reviews are fantastic for it. Top 40 all time TV Shows of all genres on IMDB. Even the bits in the past are difficult to follow with Matthew McConaughey using a deep south mumble at best of times. I google the episode after each one just to check I haven't missed anything.

    I'm at Episode 4 is it worth persevering?

    Given it's an anthology show, shoudl I skip to season 2 instead. Lot's of long running shows get better with later series.

    The Days on Netflix thoroughly absorbing, well worth a look if youíre interested in the Japanese Nuclear disaster.

    Ha, I don't know what to tell you about this! Season 1 is a bit weak but it soon hits its stride when Danny DeVito joins the main cast from season 2 onwards. The thing is, the characters are supposed to be unlikeable, you'll hate every single one of them and you'll wonder how half the storylines ever got given the green light. If you get it, you'll love it, I don't think it's something that someone can learn to appreciate, it isn't high concept stuff. It's filthy and nasty and if you don't like it, they don't give a s**t.

    That said, there are some genuinely touching moments, "Mac's dance" (Googling it will give you major spoilers) is one of the greatest few minutes of television ever conceived.

    Thanks for the reply I think that I get it now. I'll persevere and hopefully it'll grow on me

    Each to their own, I thought it was a great adaptation of the character in the novels.

    That said, I couldn't get beyond a couple of episodes of the Wire.

    Quite enjoyed watching 'Steeltown Murders' on BBC. Enjoyed is probably the wrong word given the subject matter, but it was quite well done.

    Mini-series based on a cold case 1970's serial murderer/rapist police investigation which was reopened in 1990's following developments in DNA testing.

    Just a PSA for those who watched the first 5 series of Black Mirror that the 6th is now on Netflix. I've just watched the first, Joan is Awful. Enjoyed it although I guessed the end which I don't think I've ever done with any previous episodes.
    Because of that I think I've enjoyed past episodes more. It won't stop me watching the rest though!

    After many recommendations on here I've been rinsing through Mr Inbetween. What a phenomenal show! It has made me laugh so much at points, but is also tragic and poignant. Plus there is action and romance! It's got everything you could ever want.

    Citadel I watched with the Mrs, pretty standard fare, 6/10 from me.

    I'm 2 episodes in to the new Black Mirror. Ep1 was good, Ep2 was great. Genuinely creepy. Have forced myself to ration the rest, it's too good to binge watch.

    I did Ep3 last night - superb. Relatively late start tomorrow so up for Ep4 tonight. With wine :-). Work schedule means I won't have a chance to do Ep5 until next Friday.

    I'm halfway (four episodes) through The Diplomat with Keri Russell as the new U.S. Ambassador to the UK. Love it. I was going to watch the remaining four tonight but it's already past midnight here.

    +1 for Tour de France: Unchained. Really good insight to the big French bike ride. Some people were more likeable than others for sure.

    Ep4 was great but I feel the need to rewatch it as I think there may be more detail to the narrative than one might perceive in the first sitting.

    Bloody hell, just watched it - clearly need to watch it again as I remain somewhat perplexed.

    Just caught up with this and it’s an absolutely stunning series .
    This should be required viewing . I’m not a fan of the BBC but these episodes are amazing .

    Following on from this , I’ve just watched the Once upon a Time in Iraq.
    Nuts, absolutely nuts .
    From the invasion in 2003 ( with a nod to the first Gulf War ) through to the legacy left behind, it’s totally absorbing . Eye witness reporting from people from all walks of life, interviews with soldiers( and generals) , reporters, photographers and many many Iraqis touched by the whole episode .
    I couldn’t recommend this any higher.

    Inside the Iranian uprising

    Truly harrowing account of the Iranian protests over the last year, and the heinous methods used by the regime to suppress it. BBC iPlayer.
