Agreed on Banner of Heaven, very well done and I think was overlooked by many. Excellent performances all
around.


Yes, I agree. I love Andrew Garfield. All the actors in this series were excellent.

Fall of the House of Usher - absolutely brilliant, chock-full of references both obvious and sly to Poe’s work. Also dripping with dark humour. I laughed so hard at Leo’s demise that I had to pause Netflix for a couple of minutes.

Been a while since I saw Usher now, but I thought it was OK.

The TV channel Dave started showing The Shield daily last week. I looked at the first few episodes, & very good, I think I'll carry on watching.

Tell you what's also getting a run from the beginning...The Shield. Which is excellent.

Great. I've read about it & nearly bought the DVD box set once (which would be on the shelf unwatched, with many other box sets). You have to keep your eye on the schedules these days, there's some good stuff coming unheralded on a lot of the less watched channels, like my favourite US sit-com, How I Met Your Mother on E4 at around 5am which has just finished its run & The Outpost which started on Sky Sci-Fi last week.

Comments on Masters Of The Air are appreciated, as I eye the bluray set sitting on my couch.

Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan is the one I am going through now. Good actors, good dialogue, fast stories. The disc set is comprised of many mini-tales, which pleasantly surprised me. Much to see in the complete set. Ryan (played by John Krasinski) is slightly too kickass to my mind - like a Tier 1 operator - nonetheless good stuff reminiscent of 24.

I done get the TV channel that shows Masters Of The Air, so I'm hoping for a Blu-ray release, but that's not a given these days.

Like with The Pacific, make sure you watch the accompanying Master of the Air documentary of savvy, erudite vets "The Bloody Hundredth".
Like all such things, most moving n poignant.

It's worth getting Apple even for a month just for Ted Lasso, Sugar, Manhunt, See, Silo, Slow Horses and Masters of the Air.

Very much enjoying Lawman Bass Reeves on paramount. Excellent casting, including Donald Sutherland as a tough judge.

Sugar on apple started as LA noir and drifted after a twist in a supremely wacky direction but still very good. Finale tomorrow.

Started series 2 of The Responder on BBC.
We enjoyed series 1, in which Martin Freeman (with seriously good scouse accent)* just gets deeper and deeper into the shit while trying to navigate night copper duties in Liverpool.
It's starting to stretch credulity a bit, as these things do, but the black humour and farce like scenarios are keeping it from wallowing in its grim situations.


* trust me, it's easy to do a shit OTT scouse accent, plenty do, including knobs like John Bishop..

The second series of RESPONDER also features one of the final performances of the late Bernard Hill (Yozza 'Gizz A Job' Hughes to my generation and Capt of the Titanic/LOTR for the newer gen).
I always thought he was a scouser, due to his breakout role as Yozza in The Boys From The Blackstuff, but turns out he was a manc (and a scum supporter at that!!).
Also, he was married to (the very fetching) Marianna Hill (just check out those stills in The Travelling Executioner CD booklet).

Agreed. Didn't see the twist coming, but we liked the whole series. Finished Defending Jacob. Liked it until the odd ending. The series should have ended like the novel.

We were watching Under The Bridge. Hubby thought it was too slow, but I may finish it.

Joan, did you try Masters of the Air and Bass Reeves yet? I think you would like.

I loved Masters of the Air. I don't have Paramount so I can't see Bass R.

Shame. But it's expensive having everything.
Glad you liked Masters of the Air. It was gripping but I found the aerial battle scenes so disturbing. Such bravery when they were so vulnerable.

After the film was a cut above, I thought Sexy Beast the series would be shite. But it's really good n I'm blitzing thru the series.
Decent cast n choice for young Gal, psycho Don, Deedee n Teddy Bass. I'd give it 8.5 out of 10.
