Chewing Gum - pretty funny comedy from the Uk from about five years ago. Predates Fleabag and has a similar style but isn't as good.

I'm really enjoying Dexter season 4 (episode 8 next). It's great that Keith Carradine returned as Frank Lundy (spoiler alert, he won't be coming back!). Dexter is seriously off his game, but being married with two kids & a baby & trying to live a sort of normal life will do that.

I forgot it irritated me as much as i enjoyed it. And it's tipping more towards irritation. I do like the snowy town.

I think the sexy girl in the first series kept me interested, but once she went out, it was annoying. smile

Grantchester - it's a very easy watch, one hour Sunday night mystery stuff. Likeable lead character and actor.

Ken Burns, The Civil War. The first two episodes, that was one very bloody war!

Ive tried Lovecraft country ep1.
Less message more story would be good.
Vampire monster things were interesting.


By ep2 its a confused silly mess and theyre ramming home the anti-white message with a sledgehammer. It better get better.

Coronation Street - it's addressing pandemic and feels weird.


It is indeed, but at least they bravely soldiered on whilst Eastenders threw the towel in. (Psst, I only watch these things because the Mrs does while she's eating her evening meal in front of the telly. Better to watch throwaway telly than waste a good drama while your'e busy looking at your bangers and mash... honest).

Tried last night starting a pirate thing called Black Sails with dad from new Lost in Space an merry man Nasir from the 80s Robin of Sherwood. Apart from loads of swearing and ott sex scenes, and a some reasonable music from Bear McCreary it was dull as dishwater for my tastes. Won't be returning.

I watched black sails from the beginning.
It had moments in first few series but by s4 s5 just went round in circles and shifting alliances and just got utterly repetitive and boring and i didnt care.

Sorry if thats anti-pirate but i lost interest in who lived or died. wink

Bill, I agree about Lovecraft County. Ep 2 was just too bizarre. I may try one more, but I may also bag it.

We are starting to watch The Borgias again. Nice to forget details over time.

Love the Borgias. Irons is great.

I've only just discovered Brooklyn Nine-Nine, it's great. I don't know if it will pass the test of time, like Modern Family, but I'm enjoying it right now.

Some of you may recall the rave reviews for italian gangster series Gomorrah. Tonight on sky Atlantic at 9pm is a thing called L'Immortale, "set around the third series of gomorrah"

Ted Lasso

An NFL American football team coach becomes a premier league football team manager. The set up has potential even though it's badly fudged and it's like the creators don't know what layers go on in a football team, never mind a premier league one, so it's already fudged to the point the idea doesn't really hold up. Jason Sudekis is likeable in the lead and there's an attempt at a story. It's mildly amusing in spots and a pleasant watch but not very funny.

This was brilliant. A 2 hour film that either is instead of s3 or sets up s3. Top quality Italian thriller

On pbs America, i just watched documentary Jack Johnson -unforgiveable blackness. 2 parter. Was great. Plenty of interesting talking heads, including a few knowledgeable boxing writers.

Always interested in johnson, after saw Great White Hope with James earl jones. And sure enough, who was one of the talking heads? James earl jones. Nice touch. Apparently Jones was in the play, before it was a movie, and in 1969 Muhammad ali, at the time of his exclusion, went several times to see it and identified very much with Johnson's plight.

Started watching Cobra Kai on Netflix.
It's an easy watch. We're about 5 episodes in.
I like how they've made us feel sorry for the bad guy from the original film and switched up their situations now.
Been disappointed by the scores though.
I thought I'd read around here that they channeled the Bill Conti originals, but I haven't heard one note yet that's stood out to me.

NOS4A2 Season 2

Season 2 wrapped up recently and it ended on a wimper. There was some good suspense in the Manx's abduction of Wayne and what was going to happen to him but then things took several awkward turns that threw me and were slightly inexcusable. I enjoyed season 1 overall but season 2 ran out of gas pretty quickly and the finale ended up losing me all together. A disappointment.
