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?

Kermode is very hit and miss. He has a very public blind spot for certain directors. ("My mate Billy Friedkin.") And Danny Boyle are two that come to mind. And seem's very cautious not to upset Disney too much when reviewing Marvel or Star Wars Movies.
As for The Boys. It's fucking ace. Ain't seen any of the new season. But will do a binge session when I get a day off in the month.

Kermode's alright, loved his Sex And The City rants.

Mark Kermode is a fucking awful film critic. Writes such a lot of drivel.

I was the first recommend The Boys as I download a lot of stuff that isn't available to a lot of punters. I usually stay ahead of the bunch.

Isn't this very Fred and the box set recommendations one of the only reasons to use this site during the summer window?

Sometimes you don't want a mainstream review with Mark Kermode seeing how many times he can get 'remarkable' into a sentence. You really want a hairy-arsed middle aged West Ham supporter to tell you if you're about to piss away six hours you'll never get back. It's saved me untold times.

After a while you get to trust certain posters and can be reasonably sure they'll point you at something interesting. Likewise there are posters whose recommendations you swerve completely.

Not naming any names but these films go along the lines of 200 black labs trapped on a US submarine that has been targeted by the Germans because these labs have been specially trained by the US Marine Corps to end the war for the USA. The only person who can save the day and win the war for the USA is Tom Hanks on a racehorse that can hold its breath for a really really long time.

I think you'll find at the height of it's popularity it was drawing in massive audiences. Or so I'm told.

To be fair Kardashians pulls in a massive world wide audience but it's shit. Not saying ST is shit by any means but popularity is not always a true gauge of quality.

you did the same about that netflix zombie film that was a steaming pile of shit. good critic reviews doesn't make something good, especially when most are paid to suck off certain creators/producers/directors

Stranger Things review, season 4 volume 2: The show’s lavish yet intimate return is a near faultless crowd pleaser

5/5

This crazily luxurious, firework-packed double-bill makes so many impeccable choices that it would be the ideal way to end the franchise.

The Boys probably is the best thing on TV.

Jim79 12:30 Mon Jul 4
Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Im inclined to agree with Bell, The Boys is brilliant and to just think of it as some sort of Marvel/Super Hero programme really is missing the point. Its the antithesis of a traditional super hero show.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
After thinking Stranger things had got a bit mundane half way through season 3, I really enjoyed the final few episodes and I'm looking forward to season 4.

As Arsene Wenger said, We all think we've got the prettiest wife!

Takashi Miike 11:12 Mon Jul 4
Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
I don't doubt the production quality of that show, but it was worn out by the end of series two. I had a watch of the first two episodes of S4 but apart from the character Eddie, it was all a bit shit

Eerie Descent 11:04 Mon Jul 4
Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Sold0, no one's trying to be edgy, you prat. The most popular TV show for a decade was X-Factor, don't mean it was any good ffs

The first series was ok, as I said the music and 80's vibe was all very COOL, but let's be honest, it's a kids TV programme, and this 4th series is just the same old shit as the other 3.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
I still haven’t got to grips with series two of Westworld. It’s hard to follow the last episode of Series one which may be the single best episode of telly I’ve seen.
