    ah back with old friends, Cleaver Green is fully jumping the shark in this one (S5 Rake)

    totally agree, didnt think much to S5 at all, but really enjoyed the first 4 series.

    watched a couple of excellent sets over the last 2 days, got to share them with you as i think youd all enjoy them. ironically both had people i cannot stand in them but still really enjoyed watching them.

    firstly, although its not netflix (catch-up) we watched that Fred, Gino and Ramsay triple part jobbie. basically a lads road trip in each respective country with food, drink and just general pissing about. had us in stitches in places, gino’s a real nutter 😀
    (in case you were interested, its ramsay i cant stand)

    and last night…..WOW! totally unexpected as i cannot abide ricky gervais, but wife had heard good things about After Life on netflix so we gave it a try.
    suicidal bloke coming to terms (or not) with his wifes death from cancer you say? may be hard viewing you say? wrong! stunning tv! in parts hilarious, heart-wrenching, it went through all the emotions. we’ve lost my dad and my wifes nan to cancer this last few months and wife was in tears watching it, both with laughter and sadness.
    exceptional dialogue, i really recommend you all watch this.

    Well I’m only 2 episodes in but I’m actually enjoying it as the ridiculous finale it is 🙂 Just good fun

    After Life, not a fan of Ricky Gervais but it’s excellent. The cast is fantastic.

    Yeah, Ricky Gervais suxks, pathetic little fat man, no one’s bloody laughing.

    A new series of Secret City has started – Aussie political type thriller. One would probably have to watch the first series for the second to make sense. Nothing world class but both series would make a good bingeable watch over a weekend.

    Brooklyn nine nine, season 5 is finally on Netflix.
    So funny I have to keep pausing it to laugh.

    Just watched E1 of Afterlife. I can’t stand Ricky Gervais but that was brilliant, good comedy usually does have some tragedy in with it. He’s caught the self destruction of someone going through depression perfectly.

    Might have been mentioned but Beyond the Curve was really good.

    After life Is excellent!.

    Yeah finished that this am so simply done.

    After Life is genuinely excellent, and you can certainly see Ricky Gervais has moved on and tackling the futility/meaning of life.

    Production is fantastic and owes a little debt to Curb and Lead Balloon perhaps.

    So much better than I was expecting. Netflix has given him the room to do what he wants, really really well.

    Love all the little local stories, and a pitch perfect supporting cast.

    Paul Kaye in particular.

    Oh and for the fan of Oz satire

    Keeping on with Rake it’s a perfect satire of the current Australian political system

    Just finished Umbrella Academy this evening.
    One of their best original series IMO. Soooo much better than the Marvel guff.

    I’ve just binge watched Homeland, a brilliant CIA series. Also really enjoyed Narcos, power (even with the terrible acting), stranger things and Luther. I found better call sol a little disappointing after breaking bad.
    Sex Ed next.

    Really enjoying star trek discovery 2nd series. Just started After life after this thread. Not laughed so much at a comedy in a while.

    I also enjoyed the first couple of episodes of After Life. I keep expecting to see Andy and Lance walking round the corner.

    We watched Behind The Curve last night….pretty funny, can’t say that I was blown away by it.

    Dawn Wall is now on Netflix and it shows some amazing stuff.

    Also watched Valley Uprising, really really enjoyed that too.

    Thinking that I may start on the civil war series.

    Big fan of Gervais in Office and Extras, but pretty much hated everything else. Derrick is worse than Mrs Browns Boys…

    After Life is a storming return to form!

    ‘The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind’ looks like it’s worth a watch.

    I would like to watch Get Out but i understand it’s a bit of an horror movie and i don’t like horror movies. Am I right or i better stay away? thanks

    The only horror is how long it drags on for to reveal the obvious plot.

    *** Spoilers… not really, but just in case anyone complains ***

    It’s more of a mystery/thriller until the final reel. I thought it was an interesting and original premise, and well executed, but ended up with a conventional genre “hero dispatches the baddies gruesomely one by one” which was a bit disappointing.

    Yeah go for get out, not real horror but a great film

    Line of duty new series due for easter, happy days!

    Get Out is brilliant, even if you don’t like horrors.
    Obviously nowhere nesr as good as The Last Jedi or any other kid’s films 😉
    Loving ‘After Life’… never has the C word been used in such abundance!

    Yeah the clues were blindly obvious.

    Wormwood is my most recent watch. A mix of a documentary and dramatisation of events around the death of a CIA agent involved in the MK Ultra project. Very good indeed.

    Having heard a lot about the film the twist/reveal was always coming and the reviews/chat had spoilt the surprise. Still enjoyed it though, coming in fresh it would have been better.

    Just watched the Dawn Wall. Mind blowing.

    Triple Frontier with Ben Affleck.
    Good action in the South American jungle and a good soundtrack.

    Enjoying Titans at the moment, some fairly savage violence at times though (which I quite enjoy).
