I remember an old, not a bad show called Heroes. The last thing I watched was Mr. Robot, I was struck by the plot and the acting.

Tiger King. 

Netflix documentary series. Crazy story about a flamboyant, redneck, gun toting madman, who runs his own mini zoo of wild animals, and his spiralling personal war with an animal rights campaigner.

Watching the final episode now. 

I can't find it on i-player.

It is incredible, and hours and hours long.

F1 Drive To Survive has started it’s 2nd season on Netflix. The Haas team principal continues to be the grumpy foul mouthed star of the show. 

 

Not being a F1 fan but stuck for something to watch, I pit series 1 on and found it compulsive viewing (much better than watching an actual race)

 

Other than knowing that Lewis Hamilton seems to win more than most, my knowledge of the last 20 years or so of F1 is very limited. The off track stuff I find fascinating as well as some of the on the track rivalry. I was shocked to see how far the Williams team have fallen - when I last watched F1 they were competing for championships. 

 

Going to save series 2 for at least a few days but looking forward to it.

As a massive F1 fan I loved it. Glad you enjoyed it mate. Been putting off series 2 for a while but the addiction is getting close now!

Bulletproof on Sky (season 2) has all episodes available now. I enjoyed it but not everyone's cup of tea.

 

If you like a half hour relaxation, then Mortimer and Whitehouse on the BBC player is fantastic. Two guys, chatting away, having a laugh while Whitehouse tries to teach Bob to fish. First two seasons are all there and third is due out in Spring.

Not a series but thoroughly recommend The Falkirk Cowboys on iPlayer. Documentary about a bunch of normal working class blokes in Falkirk who decide to make their own cowboy movies in the 70’s. Proper feel good stuff.

Looking for something new to watch. I've seen all the old favourites like 24, sopranos, lost etc just finished Fringe and currently up to date with Game of Thrones, the following and the blacklist.

 

Anyone recommend something else? (Tried breaking bad but got to episode 5 and gave up!)

 

Actually rewatching FRINGE right now - available on Stars play (part of Amazon prime - 99p a month for 3 months) 

 

Maybe my fav series ever

The Shield is tremendous viewing. I watched it back in the day when it was on originally. In my top 10 TV Shows of all time.

Started watching Spooks from season 1 as they are all on iPlayer. Early seasons clearly quite dated now but decent watch.

I watched the first dew series when they were first shown. The first series was very good but the deep fat fryer scene still sends a shiver through me.

Apart from Harry I don't recognise any of the cast yet. I only seen some of the later seasons where the blonde hair guy was in it and the Asian guy.

Not sure which series it's in but there's one where there is a deadly virus killing lots of people in the UK. Thought it was so far fetched at the time. Loved Spooks mind.

The whole middle part of it is just a childrens program from Saturday mornings circa 1990. Plot barely moves and they just land on a planet - save it - then move on. Its garbage from episode 3 - 7. 

 

Picks up at the end thankfully.

Just rewatched Norsemen on Netflix - 2 series, a spoof which references other series especially Vikings. Very funny in places and always worth watching. I understand there's a third series showing in Scandinavia so should be here soon.

I resisted it for ages but thoroughly enjoyed it when I watched it. Though it is a bit WTF with an unexpected bit at the end of the 2nd season.
