Just finished The Killing liked it a lot but not really the last season as much.

Breaking Bad, Homeland done

Was going to do Luther or The Wire next - can you tell me which one is best of the two?

I thought season one of Ozark was excellent.

Season 2 started to really drag in the middle and by the end it was so relentlessly depressing for all the characters I've kind of given with watching season 3

The Last Dance is good, if you like massively OTT American histrionics over a shit sport.

Its interesting enough finding out about Michael Jordan and what a competitor he was, but fucking hell, talk about over dramatising events.

Still, we followed suit post 96.....

AGUEEERRRROOOOOOO

Just finished 3 seasons of Mr Mercedes which I recommend. I thought it was very good. Lots of fucked up stuff going on.

Hermit... yeah I noticed seasons 3 and 4 are in a new college in kansas IIRC?? Half way through season 2 ... superb viewing... have to say the 100 bloke brawl v Mississippi Delta will live long in my memory... fair play all those that joined in and helped their mates out ... made the old Sunday morning league dust ups of old look tame!!

Excellent series and so was the second. After a while they moved to a different college with a massive tit as Head coach so the series rapidly became unwatchable.

Chill - She’s a decent actress, I just don’t like the way they’ve changed her character.


Rossal - Are you saying it doesn’t improve after Season 3 Episode 3?
If that’s the case i may not bother finishing it

Ruth's great. But then I've always rated Justin Timberlake as an actor.

The reviews for series 3 are amazing so i stuck with it but wish i hadnt, what a waste of time.......even the big finale last ep of series 3 was a letdown

Rossal - I've watched a load of stuff with similar types of themes to Ozark, so should have naturally like that too, but I'm with you, got about 6 episodes in and had to jack in it. Slow moving, annoying characters and everyone borderline suicidal.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Ozark is terrible, watched all 3 seasons.......shit storylines where nothing really happens. I dont get the hype around it at all.

Power, Line of Duty, Bodyguard, The Stranger, first series of Designated Survivor all on netflix and much better

Currently going through Narcos which im liking

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Ted, yeah it gets better. First few episodes seemed like a poor reworking of the film but it improves. Also, all 3 seasons are completely separate and self-contained so you could always try out season 2, which is the best one I think.


Just finished series 1 of Fargo and you were spot on Nagel we really enjoyed it.

Jesus, haven't I told you cunts repeatedly, Zerozerozero for action and What We Do In The Shadows (on iplayer) for fun.

Survivors 1975 version

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
That’s an option, but then I wouldn’t be able to talk about how shit it is with such authority.

You could read a book while Mrs Road watches it. Or have a nice bubble bath (don't knock the bubbles till you've tried it). Or watch Mousetrap Monday on YouTube.

Hermit Road 7:49 Mon May 25
Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Fair enough, what about the acting and storylines?

One of my problems with it is how unlikeable the main characters are. I like the young girl who runs the casinos with them although she overplays the role a bit but the character I don’t mind, the main family though are just a bunch of insipid, pseudo-intellectual moralists. I want to see them wiped out by the Mexican Mafia and someone else take over the lead.

My other problem is that I have to watch it because Mrs Road likes it.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
I don't see it that way. The hillbillies are portrayed as being rather savvy. Same as Justified. Dewey Crowe notwithstanding.

Hermit Road 7:30 Mon May 25
Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Ozarks is just Hollywood taking the piss out of middle America for being (in their view) thick and uncultured.

Bloody ridiculous story lines and terrible acting

Surf - incredible. She is a very striking woman.
