Watching the SPY on Netflix, Sacha Baron Cohen plays the lead in a serious role. It’s by Gideon Raff, the creator of Homeland.

 

Thought feck it, i’ll give it a bash, it’ll probably be shit and he’ll be shite.

 

It’s great btw and he is absolutely superb. You actually forget it’s him after the first episode, he plays the role seamlessly. 

 

It’s set in Argentina, Israel and Syria in the 1960’s. The sets brilliant, costumes everything. Completely nailed it.

 

Sacha’s character is an Israeli Arab spy sent undercover, obv. So it’s got all the old school espionage methods. It’s got loads of relationships between characters. It can get quite tense. 

 

Won’t say much more than that.

 

Well worth a watch.

Just finished it. Thought it was excellent.

It’s surprisingly good. It looks like there could be another season with a different Spy.

Just started watching Mr Mercedes last night and fell asleep during the first episode. From what I can remember seeing of it, it seemed not bad. Anybody watched this, is it any good?

Yes its good.  The first season is terrific . The second season I can only describe as " odd" as it veers into something quite different from the first season.  But its still good. Im now on the 3rd season episode 3 and its back on track again. Anything with the wonderful Brendan Gleason is worth a watch i feel.

Watching 'Crime and Punishment' on Channel 4. 'Filmed over a 48 hour period, this documentary goes inside Winchester Prison at a time when overcrowding, violence and drug use across the prison system is at an all time high'

The opening scene on the very first episode was horrific but brilliant at the same time.

One of my favourite shows of all time.

Schitt's Creek. Multi millionaire family lose everything except a shitehole little town that no one else wants.

The fantastic Eugene Levy and his son Dan star, his daughter's also in it. 

 

It's good, some decent laughs from skint millionaires trying to live with hicks while struggling to get back on their feet. Dan Levy's brilliant in it, so's Eugene of course, while Annie Murphy and Emily Hampshire... :wub:

Unbelievable.    On Netflix

Based on a true story about both bad and good police investigators who are looking into the possible case of a serial rapist. Compulsive viewing and obviously quite disturbing with some brilliant acting. It’s 8 episodes and the actress who played the character of a victim called Marie is an  amazing talent.

9/10

Bang goes your life for a while, one of the best tv series ever made imo.

Yip started Vikings season 4 last night.

That Rollo has certainly changed the game.
