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 the Responder was pretty good too, two episodes in. Trigger Point also started well. Anyone remember Danger UXB?

Book of Boba Fett has been very enjoyable so far...

Just started watching The Newsroom.

Halfway through series 1

Very engaging though a little preachy a la the West Wing - which isnt that surprising given Sorkin is behind both.

I know it’s been mentioned a few times but what a brilliant show Mr.Inbetween is.

On Disney plus 26 episodes and every episode is 25 mins long. Bloody brilliant and I’m gutted I’ve only got three to watch.

Some of the acting is award worthy. The highest rated episode in series 2 got
Me choked up.

Tv at its best

Watched to the mid-season break of Ozark. Shockingly good as always. Just 7 episodes left (released "later in the year"), and Season 4 is the last by design. Will really miss it when it's over.

Rattled through The Falcon and The WInter Soldier. Enjoyable if the whole MCU is your thing.
Also finished Macgruber in one hit. A guilty pleasure, you know it's shit but a fair few laughs (and throat-rippings) along the way.
Just started Loki. Not too sure at the moment tbh.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Yeah I enjoyed the first 2 episodes of the responder

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Rattled through a few on Netflix

Two serial killer mysteries:
The chestnut man was good (danish)
The mantis was also decent (French)

I started watching another Belgian one about a a football player who’d be found dead by suspected suicide, but then it got taken off Netflix before I’d finished the third episode which was bloody irritating

Also two Harlen coben adaptations - the stranger and stay close are worth a watch (though I find james ‘one trick pony’ nesbitt a tough watch at times)

Thought The Responder on BBC last night was excellent with Martin Freeman.
Written by an x Liverpool copper really got it exactly right.Freemans scouse accent was spot on.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Got around to ZeroZeroZero since it's only 8 episodes. Seem to recall some going gaga about it when it come out? I'm 5 episodes in and think it's decent, but won't live long in the memory.

started Ted Lasso, of course it's garbage, but it's decent garbage with the odd laugh. Just watch one every couple of days or so, just 4 episodes left to watch.

Was like a cockney version of the Hurt Locker... bit OTT in places but fuck me was a proper tense hour watching it... more of the same next week superb Sunday night tense entertainment

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Yeah that was a bit clumsy, but I suspect it was probably more to educate the audience a little bit as to 'how bombs can work' so they get it out of the way without having to explain it later. Pressure pads, second detonators etc. and it felt like the tutorial bit at the start of a video game. But it did make her look really amateur as a supposed explosives expert with military experience because you'd expect her to be well aware.

Side of Ham 3:13 Tue Jan 25
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 ...

Side of Ham 2:33 Tue Jan 25
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......

El Scorchio 2:26 Tue Jan 25
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.

Side of Ham 2:08 Tue Jan 25
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.
