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?

Finished the haunting of Hill House, really enjoyed it. Love Carla Gugino, she's superb in it. Little bit of useless information, she was in the video for Bon Jovi's Always.

I have seen all 9 seasons , only the past year and going back again to download.

There are so many lists of the best episodes etc.

For me its impossible to choose one, as forget how good the ones off the favourites list are also sublime.

Forgot about Kamikazi Bingo - watched yesterday and man the line about the Japanese Dad being a Kamikaze Pilot and in a care home now and Larry simply implies he must have been crap at it or changed his mind haha and the Japanese fella replies - well he "Grazed the ship" cracked me up. Grazed. ffs Larry David and co have first class use of English.

The Terrorist is a bit slow but the final when he shouts Fatwa and terrorist at the funeral is fucking funny.

Watching Palestinian Chicken then change of genre and trying making murderer 2.

I've forgotten about that, Tak. I ought to have watched MaM1 before I started on the second.

nurse, whose report was it that talked about the avery's in a bad light and talked about cousins sleeping together and other strange behaviour? was that his defence lawyer kachinskey or the private investigator who cried in court when seeing the blue ribbon?

Interview/confession

Started on MaM2 last night. A few thoughts:

1) I forgot how much I loathed Brendan Dassey's first trial lawyer, and it brought it all flooding back. Not good for the blood pressure.

2) Listening to Brendan Dassey and his mother happily making plans for his release was very sad in light of subsequent events.

3) Seeing footage again of his police interview/footage made me grind my teeth down to stumps

4) Rather keen on Avery's new lawyer. Makes me chuckle. I would hate to find myself on the wrong side of an argument with her.

5) We were told by the prosecution in MaM1 that 'sweat DNA' from Avery was found on the bonnet latch of Teresa's car, and this was obviously not something which could be explained away or 'planted' by corrupt coppers. It's the one piece of evidence that casts doubt on Avery's claims of innocence. But the defence team in MaM2 says it wasn't sweat, and in any case it's nigh on impossible to get DNA from sweat. Something like that. So what WAS the non-blood source of DNA? Saliva? Seriously?? And why didn't his original defence lawyers pull this aspect of the forensic evidence apart?

Trying to keep an open mind on Avery's guilt or innocence. However, the American legal system is not covering itself in glory here, especially with regard to Brendan Dassey.

What about MANHATTEN on prime?

I LIKE IT

I've found Making A Murderer 2 a bit disappointing so far. Obviously lacks the drama / unfolding of the first and is a bit slow and reliant upon long interviews (e.g. 'What did you think of such and such...'). Anyway maybe the pace will pick up.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Maniac had a charm about it which I liked. It was just missing something that would turn it from OK to fantastic. I thought it dragged on in places, as American series are prone to do. Sometimes you can tell a story in 6 episodes rather than 10.

Coincidentally, I'm starting on that tonight.

Made a big pot of soup, turning the ringer off my phone, firing up the Netflix app and going in...

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
watching making a murderer again before watching series, the cops and prosecution team seem even more corrupt on the second viewing

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Two unhappy people, one schizophrenic, one damaged and bereaved, help each other to become less fucked up. Big Pharma and the cynical self-help/pop psychology industries are shown up for the damage they do. But it's kept light hearted and not political or preachy at all, which is a rarity on TV these days, and quite refreshing. I watched it with a grin on my face. It was sort of like a cross between Brave New World and Donnie Darko, if the Coen Bros directed it.

Won't be everyone's cup of tea.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
yes, but what was the point of it?

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Finished Maniac last night. Loved it. It didn't take itself seriously, and was deliciously silly in places. Very moving scene where Annie says sorry and goodbye to her sister. Plus a happy ending. Jonah Hill's mumbling was easily solved via use of subtitles.

Blimey,Tony Danza from taxi plays the co lead part. Very enjoyable.

Done 2 eps of Haunted Hill House last night, more intriguing than scary. Maybe the worst is to come but can’t see myself fainting just yet.

Just finished BCS and was plesantly surprised. Was expecting to cling on to Breakung Bad's coat tails a bit but was very good in its own right.

And another vote for Curb,best comedy iv'e seen in years,the blacks were absolutely brilliant. So many highlights but Wanda's visit to Larry's with his racist dog had me in bits.

There are many threads on the front page where you're already engaged in arguments and spats which give you all the attention you could possibly need. You don't need to pollute another.

Sometimes I feel a bit under the weather.

But then I think to myself

"Why, I could have a mimmler, or a Zero, as an employee". And do you know what?

I feel instantly better!
