    Just started Dirk Gently on Netflix, whole lot of Wtf and Dirk is annoying in the way only a Douglas Adams character could be. I reckon it’ll be a good one.

    It is. Both series were excellent. Sadly they’ve canned it now.

    I would really recommend Dark. It’s a German series that reminded me slightly of Stranger Things but without the Goonies bit. Really enjoyed it although bit of a head **** keeping up with all the different characters in the different time lines. It’s on Netflix.

    I started on Sabrina last night. As a, ahem, fan of “the teenage witch” , (especially Willow!), I didn’t expect much  – It’s ace. 🙂

    Plus 1 for Dark but make sure you watch it in German with subtitles as the dubbed into English version is laughably bad.

    Currently watching 3% on my commute. Similar laughable dubbing (from Spanish I guess).

    Watched the Netflix made film Outlaw King tonight. Not bad at all.

    We saw Outlaw King being filmed up in the  Cairngorms last year, came round the corner with my then 3 year old girl on the forward facing bike seat, only to see fifty or so horsemen with all the regalia, a few loose horses and all the noise of hooves and shouting.

    Little whimper from the front and then TOTAL amazement. Quality!

    also half way through Ozark 2. It’s good but the Sisyphean challenge/failure/someone screws up is getting a little draining. And the kids are a right pain in the wotsit.

    We just finished Ozark 2, really enjoyed it. A third season has been commissioned, just have to wait now…

    Ive stalled halfway through while I finish S4 of Gotham and have started Making a Murderer 2

    Will get back to Ozark shortly though. Long nights drawing in.

    Amazon Prime –

    The Americans

    Halt and Catch Fire (first season is a bit slow but by about half way through the second it picks up and I thought the last two seasons were outstanding).  Interesting history of the modern tech age.

    Finished the Haunting of Hill House … bit disappointing that one. Director has done some good stuff (Hush) – but this was flabby and melodramatic. Some of the monologues were so drawn out. On the plus side they did try something a bit different and some of the scares were great but generally I thought it was not worth 10 episodes.

    Episode 6 was a technical tour de force – not quite equalling the Steadicam sequence of True Detective but impressive.

    Sinner S2 – has got off to a fantastic start though. A proper ‘why dunnit’ with a decent sense of pace, mystery and character.

    You’ve been recommended all the good ones but if you want something factual to watch I can wholeheartedly recommend The Vietnam War series. I grew up to young to remember anything about it so it really opened my eyes to the horror and futility of it all.

    I started on Sabrina last night. As a, ahem, fan of “the teenage witch” , (especially Willow!), I didn’t expect much  – It’s ace. 🙂

    I’ve just finished it. I didn’t make it through the first episode the first time around but went back and actually really enjoyed it. Jeez it’s dark: I wasn’t expecting it to be quite so graphic and outlandishly satanic. Even the Church of Satan are suing the show over use of their statue as it’s too literal in it’s representation of Satanism.

    Dammit, though: I’m now struggling to find something to watch afterwards. I started with the Punisher but found it pretty dull.

    Edit:

    Even the Church of Satan are suing the show over use of their statue as it’s too literal in it’s representation of Satanism.

    It turns out they aren’t. It’s a political activist group called TST (The Satanic Temple) who have sued the show and have nothing to do with the CoS.

    Yeah, they are good.  Hip-Hop evolution, and The Get Down were my favs

    Do you mean Buffy?

    Why would he mean a slayer when he was talking about witches?

    It is. Both series were excellent. Sadly they’ve canned it now.

    FFS… Yeah better get those stats up!

    Watched the first episode of Narcos Mexico last night. A good start and has to be watched for the two best haircuts in television history.

    So about half way through House of Cards, got the nagging sense of rewrites all over it and there is a big chuck of missing time that doesn’t really make sense (or probably the first 3 episodes which would have included spacey to get to the new start point.

    Watched ‘The Ballad of Buster Scraggs’ yesterday, a collection of western-themed short stories from the Coen Brothers.

    Absolutely brilliant.

    Started watching the Chilling Adventures of Fake Hermione last night.

    Shaping up to be quite good except for the constant distraction of how obvious the casting process must have been to find an actress who most closely resembles Emma Watson to play the teenage witch on her way to magic boarding school.

    Also, the cat better start talking soon.

    I watched buster craggs last night .

    very brilliant and some genuine laugh out loud moments for me. I am a Cohen bros fanboy though.

    A more traditional homage to spaghetti westerns is Valley of Violence I enjoyed it.

    my grandad would have loved it.

    +1 on the Vietnam series.

    Watched it last night, felt the same, something was missing. The one with the dog and the gold miner one were excellent though, overall let down by the other 4 parts.

    For those who have appreciated, I really don’t think liked is the right word, Ken Burns series on Vietnam the one on the Civil War is also excellent and despite being about events 150 years ago very moving.

    Watched the ‘ballad of buster scruggs ‘due to ratings and reviews. Meh , worth 2 hours if you’ve nothing else to do, but i can’t understand the high ratings. Going to binge ‘line of duty’ here.

    Unabomber, an oldie but new to me wasn’t the worst. Couldn’t get on with sabrina or the sinner at all.

    Was going to give outlaw king a whirl, but on hold for now.  Same with ozark, house of cards, oitnb etc. . I don’t want to commit to any shows atm. Patiently waiting on GOT.
