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?

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Yeah, we'll see Scorch but my first gripe was the fact it's called 'Trigger Point' and one of the first instincts one of the bomb experts had was to touch the most obvious Trigger Point....... a light switch.....that's like Sold asking for a full on pint in a pub!

That's my concern as well. How does an explosives expert solve a case when it's not their job? Maybe that's where the boyfriend comes in as the DI, but Vicky McClure is clearly the lead character.

I'm thinking to keep her relevant probably a trail of bombs will occur where they work out through those who the perp is- they mentioned their time in the army so maybe (this is far fetched) they'll realise it's a person they encountered or someone with a specific vendetta against her and her partner. If they go off piste and she just does detective work then no thanks!

Still ploughing through Gomorrah series 1 at the mo... i'm sticking with it but have to admit i'm not rivetted... it's no band of Brothers that's for sure... will deffo' have a butchers at Yelllowstone when we finish

Also thought Trigger point was excellent ...

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
I'm guessing it will turn into the investigation of who set the bombs, but I tend to dislike things when someone who is an expert in one field suddenly thinks better than those high up in another field like investigation.....like that forensic thing where they end up doing more of the detective work than the highly qualified Police team signed to the case......anyway lets see how it pans out.....it is by the writers of Line of duty......

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
I'm quite intrigued as to where it's going to go, or how it will go. There was an unusually large amount of action and some fast pacing for a first episode.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
It is Scorch, to the point where I will probably watch the second episode of Trigger Point........... :-)

Same! It's all subjective isn't it. I simply can't understand how some people enjoy certain things and I'm sure they'd say the same about me!

Glad you're enjoying it. I think it gets better as it goes on. It hasn't become one of those series where you can tell they're dragging it on a bit to squeeze every $ out of it, like Lost, for example.

I've just the last one to watch on the current season and then I'll be starting 1883 (the prequal to Yellowstone) which I'm told by my MATE is even better.

I'm surprised Sold0 hasn't watched it yet. It'll be right up his street, I reckon.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Luckily Scorch, I'm not the one to always follow on opinions....... :-)

Just finished the second series of Yellowstone - up there with some of the best TV I've watched. Beth is utterly mental.

Hard to get hold of in the UK, so I ended up downloading all four series of it off a torrent site - but, if you have Sky Q then Paramount+ will be added to it when it launches in the UK and it will all be on there

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Ah well. I liked it.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
I thought Trigger Point was stereotypical shit that didn't have me on edge at all. An hour of bantz mixed in with some electrical wire......

I LOVE Ozarks too.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Hardly a box set yet, but I just watched the first ep of Trigger Point last night and thought it was excellent. High hopes for the rest of the series.

Not sure if already discussed, but Danny McBride's other comedies Eastbound and Down and Vice Principals are both fucking superb. For anyone who hasn't seen them, well worth it.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Strange how tastes differ so much. Just finished S4 of Ozark and can't wait for S5, which will be the last.

*James Gunn's partner, not wife.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Peacemaker is just superb. Colourful, violent, sweary, disgusting and funny. Just what you want from a grown-up superhero show. DC's dark and gritty stuff leaves me absolutely cold but James Gunn has breathed life into that world. Up there with The Boys. And as a bonus he very much likes showing his wife off to the world.

4 eps in now. Available on HBO Max or your preferred hookey telly supplier.
