Finally got round to watching the last season of Homeland. Personally thought it was great over the 8 seasons and the ending was perfect. 

I stopped Watching it 

Spoiler

After Brody was killed 

However I have heard it was just as good or even better after it ? I think Clare Danes is an exceptional actress so that helps

It gets well better after that. You should watch it again. 👍

Being enjoying Angela Black on Sunday evenings. ITV.

Final episode of 6 this Sunday. So will be totally available  after then.

 

No doubt the last episode will feck up the wee twists that have been going on.

Only Murders in the Building. Comedy whodunnit starring Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez as a trio who start a podcast about a murder in their New York apartment building. Smart and funny.

 

I am loving this. Quite different and funny.

Everybody Loves Baz!

I know it's been said before, but The West Wing is phenomenal.

Went back to 1999 and started watching it from the start.

 

Funny and Topical, an so much more.

 

What's also great is that half way through some episodes, it all comes back to me and I start remembering the outcome.

 

Still doesn't stop me watching it though.

I know Spacey is a bit dodgy but his performance in that is first class.  Brilliant series.

Glad you’re enjoying. Not sure if you’ve made it to episode 7 yet but it is really interesting what they do in that particular episode. You’ll know what I mean once you watch it.

I finished the series last night and Ep 7 was "interesting". Cleverly done and got ones attention

The first episode of the new series of Dexter was decent. No more than that but it has promise of being better than the original ending partly due to the return of the showrunner who left after series 4 (trinity killer)

I watched the start of the new Stephen Merchant programme Outlaws on BBC iPlayer. Very good if you like his humour. Looks like it has a dark edge to it as well. 

Bit of a coup to get Christopher Walken to be in it.

I've not gone through tons of pages to see if this has been mentioned but I've just finished watching Alice in Borderland. It's a Japanese show where the people of Tokyo disappear and the survivors end up participating in games who h give them free time between the games. I don't want to say too much but I enjoyed it more than Squid Game (which I really enjoyed). It's on Netflix if people are interested.

ITV drama this week The Tower

 

3-parter, a cop and a 15yo Libyan immigrant have fallen from the top high rise block of flats.

Really good story and production so far.

Finishes tonight.

Word of warning. Don't bother with the 4 part doc on Netflix called The Motive. 

2 and a half hours I'll never get back. I'm actually quite annoyed with myself for watching them all. Interviews with the same tedious talking heads every episode and no conclusion at the end. What is the point of that? Utter dog shit.

Watched 2 episodes of Showtrial BBC.

Sunday 9pm

 

Set in Bristol, a student has gone missing then found murdered.

Suspects are a couple of well to do students, the female is very dislike able.

Good start.

Guilty on BBCi player.

 

Thoroughly enjoying it, though don't know if it was meant or not but I found it more like a dark comedy

5 episodes into Dopesick, really enjoying it, Michael Keaton is a great actor. Scandalous what they got away with.

The final (6th) season of The Expanse starts on Amazon on 10th Dec. 

 

I'll miss it when it's done, as it's one of the better sci-fi shows ever made, and IMO definitely the best current one out there. 

 

I know they're not covering the final 3 books of the 9 book series in this season, but as there's apparently a 30 year gap between books 6 and 7, it does make sense they're stopping now as it's a natural break and they'd have to either recast or digitally age the current actors if they were to go on.

 

Apparently there's still a chance that the final 3 books will be picked up at some time to continue the storyline. But even if not, at least I know I can start reading the books if I want to get the complete story.

Millennium on iPlayer is very good. It's series based on Stieg Larsson's trilogy. Much faster pace than movies that were made and girl who plays Lisbeth is excellent. Subtitled in English but you forget about that quickly enough.

Narcos : Mexico series 3 on Netflix is awesome. Fantastic. Watched the lot over 2 nights and going to watch them all again.

One of the best series on iplayer I've seen for a while, really enjoyed it. Quite often I find the last episode of most things an anti climax, not with this though.

Could this be watched without seeing the previous ones first or is it a series with no continuation from those? Saw the trailer and it looked good.

Watched the first few episode of Cowboy Bebop on Netflix. Live version of a Japanese anime series. Enjoyable enough turn your brain off stuff but can’t help but feel it could have been a whole lot better.

Valley of Tears on channel 4’s player. Israeli series based on the Yom Kippur War of the early seventies. Pulls no punches. Takes a bit of getting into but by the third episode I was hooked. Subtitled.

I gave up at about the same place. It started quite promising but faded very quickly. With so much choice available nowadays I would hope that studios would try to make quality shows to rise above the vast majority of "meh" shows.

Haven't watched any of it yet, but The Wheel of Time is now on Amazon.  No doubt aimed to fill a Game of Thrones gap.  The series of books is 14 volumes long.  I think I read around 8 of them before giving up as nothing continued to happen over around 1,000 pages per book.  Will give the TV adaptation a watch, though, just to see what they've done with it.

I was the same, read some when I was younger and enjoyed them at first, but gave up about half way through because they became too long and meandering. Bit like the Game of Thrones books did too.

 

I watched the first 3 episodes on Amazon at the weekend, they were ok but I did feel it was a bit slow. Will keep watching for now, as could be just because they're setting up the characters and storyline. I do think that it will struggle to get renewed for enough seasons to complete the whole marathon storyline though.

Finished 'Dopesick' last night. Was very good IMO

On episode 5. Fantastic. Some place the USA. Money has the platform to corrupt anything and everything. Absolutely bonkers stuff. 10/10 so far. Great acting, great storyline.

Watched the first episode last night and thought it was decent.  Don't remember Two Rivers being so culturally diverse in the book, though.

Long time since I read the books, so can't remember, but I suppose a village that's been pretty isolated wouldn't be that diverse, but I don't have a problem with it.

 

It never really bothers me when I'm watching shows, as long as the actors are good and a character being a certain colour/race/gender isn't key to the plot.

Started watching the new Irvine Welsh thing "Crime". Set in Edinburgh, lot of good Scottish actors in it. Gordon Kennedy spotted holding a Hearts mug in the first episode!
