Anyone Watching A Good Tv Show?

I’d totally forgotten about Escape At Dannemora, that was brilliant. 

I’ve not watched When They See Us yet, but I think it’s going to be tough for anything to top Chernobyl. 

It obviously doesn't have the HBO polish that Chernobyl has but the acting and writing is right up there

I quite enjoyed the first season of the Good Place.

Season 2 is alright, but not as good. Season 3 is a bit shit, I didn't make it past half way, and I realised even season one fell in to that common category of American sitcoms - it was easy, pleasant watching, but at no point did it actually make me laugh.

It's a cool idea, and it's fairly charming, but it just isn't funny.

I've only seen the first season but The Good Place is better if you see it as a surreal drama rather than a comedy.

I think The Good Place is funny. It’s not frequently LOL funny, but it has a charming, quirky humour to it. 

I thought S2 was funnier and the best so far. 

S3 had a few gags that missed the mark and a few more that won’t age particularly well. 

I think it's a great show though and the whole cast are fantastic.

The Trolley Problem episode was excellent.

Series 4 starts at the end of September, I think.

The boys was entertaining enough & quite amusing in places but it just feels like i have watched a third of a 30 hour movie

Every Brilliant Thing on sky. 

Quote

An adaptation of the off-Broadway show about a young boy who attempts to cure his mother’s depression by creating a list of brilliant things.

I’m not ashamed to say I cried at several points during this one man show. Funny, extremely thought provoking and beautiful in equal measure. Best thing I’ve seen on the telly box in a long, long time.

I'm a bit behind the times with this one but I started Sons of Anarchy a couple of weeks ago, just finished season 3.

Why the **** have I not seen this sooner? Ridiculously good and up there with the best for me. I hope it doesn't drop off towards the end, but I'm loving it!

 I thought it was awful and full on cringe. How are this hardcore biker gang who are also involved in criminal activities so poor ALL the time? The constant hugging of each other is so urgh. Though, most people seem to like it, I could never understand why.

Because of the weird rules around US shows does anyone get excited when they hear the word ‘****’ for the first time as that also generally means the show is allowed to have bewbs in too.  Just me?

It starts off pretty cack, my other half wanted to give up after 3 episodes. She ended up being obsessed with it and we smashed through all 7 seasons in no time. Walton Goggins as the tranny having an affair with Tig is **** hilarious

Just ran through When They See Us in one sitting. Seriously tough viewing. Brilliant acting.

Just finished Good Omens. The fact it took me 2 months to do so for just 6 episodes probably tells it's own story. Great when Crowley and Aziraphale are on screen, pretty rubbish the rest of the time sadly.

finished season 2 of money heist

there are some really clever bits to it and some seriously daft bits, overall enjoyable but maybe not as good as it could be, not a clue where they take series 3, can see them **** it royally

hopefully they do a spin off showing how the Spanish police marksmen become storm troopers

Same. 

I was recommended it by a friend so watched a couple of episodes and dismissed it as shit.

Then a whole load of other people recommended it so I thought I'd better give it a proper go and watched the first season.

 

I just don't get it. If it wasn't for the amount of people who rave about it I'd say it was downright shite. But there must be something in it. Whatever it is it's not for me.

Enough people have mentioned it that I think I'm going to try out Twin Peaks next. Do the first two series still hold up, or is it worth just jumping in to the new one?

Finished Stranger Things  on the weekend.

Really enjoyed this season. Sits somewhere between 1 and 2 for me in terms of quality. Not as good as 1 but better than 2.

Final episode 

Spoiler

was heartbreaking, even though I already knew who died
