Anyone Watching A Good Tv Show?

Finshed Better Call Saul S2. Superb. In many ways it is better than Breaking Bad, and I can see myself watching it again and again whereas I've struggled to rewatch BB. The latter was visceral, more exciting, and the stakes were bigger, but BCS is just a richer show, with better characterisation and a real appreciation for showing and not telling.

Both are great, although both fall short of The Americans for me, which continues to be head and shoulders above everything else primarily because it has big stakes played out at a domestic level. It's brutal, tragic, exciting, deeply human and expertly crafted. More people should be watching it.

The Americans?  Really? 

I've tried that a couple of times and thought it was distinctly average and kept losing my interest with it.

Really liking Billions at the minute. Great acting.

Finished season 3 of Blacklist

Spoiler

Disappointed with the 'twist'. So predictable. It would have been more of a shock if it hadn't have happened

It's **** brilliant.

Agree Steveo, but did you not find the ending of the last series a little silly?  I mean, armed guards outside the interview room but nowhere else in the building?   Kate then chasing on her own with no back up and how long did it take the Range Rover to get away, as it seemed to go round in circles?   Still very good though and sets up the next series well I think.

You should spoiler that

The bit I found silly was the Range Rover bit. It ended up about 50 metres form where it started by doing a huge circle. That bit made no sense. But I wasn't that bothered because it was so good.

The backup bit did seem a bit silly but I think that's actually true to life in the UK. Armed backup, which is what they asked for, takes ages. I remember when the Lee Rigby thing happened there were reports about how long it took police to get there because they had to be armed, and armed police in this country aren't just standing by ready to go.

The armed police bit was fine. They were an escort so they waited outside the room they'd escorted the guy to.

Watching the box set of Gommorah. Brilliant series

Making my way (very) slowly through the second series at the moment.

As i've said many times on here before - it's up there with the best TV ever.
