Oh need a new show . This looks good 

Honestly pal, a great watch. Told my sister about it a few days ago and she’s loving it too.

 

Guy who plays Franklin is fantastic.

Quite enjoying the new Israeli/American Netflix series Hit & Run. Took a bit to get going but ended up watching the first 4 episodes last night, and would have carried on if I'd not had to get up for work this morning!

 

Not giving anything away, as it's in the shows synopsis, but it's about an Israeli man whose American wife is killed in a hit and run. Needless to say, it's not quite as straightforward as that and the more he digs into it the more he finds his wife had secrets.

I watched this and enjoyed it but not sure about how it ended.  There can't be another series so it felt a bit of a flat ending.  

Worth watching though.

Yeah, I felt the same at the ending. They did throw in a bit of a cliffhanger, and there were still a couple of questions that they didn't really answer, so I'm not sure if there are plans for a second series and they're waiting on Netflix renewing it or not (dependent on viewing figures I suppose)

I thought it had maybe ended that way because of a possible second series.  Though I can't see how they can due to the main character's direct involvement in the story.  Maybe him being ex special services will give them something to go on.  

Good watch though with a lot of decent characters.

9/11 One day in America. 
I appreciate people may get a bit tired of 9/11 documentaries but this one is superb. 
Plenty of footage I’ve not seen before and stories I’ve not heard. 
It’s a six parter.

Sounds interesting by it seems another series that’s too long to me. There’s a lot of stuff on Netflix for example that interests me but they stretch it out way too long for my attention span. ITV managed to make The World At War covering the entire build up to and entire length and aftermath of WWII fit into 26 hugely detailed episodes. Now we get ) parts about one event.

The production of this particular series is fantastic. It’s won a few awards. I’d imagine it will become the definitive 9/11 documentary.

A series based on Michael Connelly's other main book series, Lincoln Lawyer, is being filmed for Netflix at the moment. I did wonder in an earlier post if Bosch would appear in that too, seeing as there's some crossover in the novels, but I've seen a quote from Connelly that that won't happen as they're on competing sites, Netflix and Amazon.

 

Just read that there's now going to be a spinoff series based on Bosch, with Welliver returning in the main role along with his daughter and "Money" Chandler. Very much a follow up to the end of season 7 of the series on Amazon, as Connelly is also involved and the series creator for the original series is overseeing it.

 

It says the series will be available on Amazon owned IMDb TV which is only available in the US currently, but hopefully it comes to a UK available broadcaster. Or, of course, there are other ways to view it if not...

Mortimer and Whitehouse return on Sunday for series 4 of their gone fishing programme.

North Uist to start with.

The most relaxing view of week. Hopefully Bob retains his Star award he richly wins each season. Also love when Ted appears. on show, sorry award winning Ted.

Been skipping by this on Prime for ages, eventually watched 3 episodes this afternoon.

 

All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur 

 

Really good so far, started with Pochetino sacking and moved onto Jose Mourinho being installed. More changing room scenes when Jose arrives.

9/11 and the war on terror.

Oh what a tangled web we weave.

Watched the first couple of episodes last night and some of the footage showing the Taliban in action let's us know what'll be happening there just now.  Harrowing stuff but a good series.

Funded by the Us , so the US thought they were pals. :jj_facepalm:

 

 

I hadn't realised the amount of times the Trade centre had be targeted.

I can't remember the 1993 attack on it.  Seeing those women getting punished in public shows what is probably happening just now.  

Very interesting watch though.  Highly recommend.  

Thanks for that

Yeah I watched it . It really was a disastrous police honey trap . Their investigation was flawed from the beginning . Whilst they were going after Stagg the real killer ended up murdering another woman and child . No got much sympathy for the woman polis either . She’s just as bad as the rest . The actual  show was not bad but I felt the lead was totally without any charisma . IMO . The guy who played Stagg was suitably ambiguous I felt .

half way through this. It’s a hard watch, very emotional. But utterly captivating. It’s unlike other ones about that day . 
If people can watch it (some very upsetting footage and stories) then I’d recommend very highly as well.

Thanks for the recommendation 👍

Watched the first episode of Brand New Cherry Flavor on Netflix. Odd but interesting so far, advertised as a horror but just starting to show signs of it. More weird than horror so far.

9/11 inside the presidents war room. Intensely emotional bbc documentary that features interviews with all the people close to George bush in the immediate aftermath of the tragedy. I had my feelings about George W bush before watching this but fair play to him, he showed tremendous leadership at an unprecedented time and event. Ridiculed in the past, I felt he carried himself and the nation with dignity and sensitivity at a time where the whole world was hurting

Actually thought she was okay but everyone else was a bit wooden. I did have a wee bit of sympathy for the WPC but she did know what she was getting into and maybe didn't communicate to her superiors the potential dangers involved. Would like to see a documentary on the real killer and the monumental feck ups that the police made there as alluded to at the end of the final episode.

Stephen on STV player, tells the story of the Stephen Lawrence case. Steve Coogan plays his role very well but I couldnt help but think of him as Alan Partidge. 

 

A Killing In Tiger Bay - BBC Iplayer. 3 part doc on the case of the Cardiff 5. Awful story. 

 

I need to try and watch something a bit more cheerful next

After enjoying the Spurs documentary, I moved onto

All or Nothing: Manchester City

Follows their league title in 2017/18.

 

Pretty decent  but features quite a bit on Benjamin Mendy, how popular and great a guy he is. :eek:

Watching an series from 2010 and 2012.

 

Accused , Prime or (STV player but littered with adverts)

 

Excellent Jimmy McGovern production.

Each episode an Individual story, similsr to The Street. Good earthy drama with good cast.

This probably outs me as a proper boring middle aged fart, but got home tonight and checked if my TiVo had recorded anything and was delighted to see there is a new season of All Creatures Great And Small. 
It’s probably nostalgia but they did a great job with the first season and the Christmas special of keeping the feel of the classic show from back in the day and cast it very well.

I might check it out. I used to love the old ACG&S when I was younger and have them on DVD. Great Sunday night viewing back in the day.
