I recommend Undercover on Amazon prime. It's Bulgarian but very watchable. 

Tbh programmes with subtitles have generally been better than most things I have watched in English over the past few months,  I can add Bulgaria to my TV viewing passport as I work my way around the world. 

I still canny speak a word in any of the languages right enough.

Both of the Narcos series, especially the last one were at times all in Spanish. I sat glued to that show. I think it has to be my favourite thing for a long time.

Just finished Dublin Murders, 8 parter about a murdered teenager which jumps back and forth between 2006 and 1984. The best detectives are always flawed and the two leads don’t disappoint, well worth a watch

Just finished the latest episode of 'For all mankind'. It's an alternative history of the USA v Soviet space race. Made by AppleTV.

Decent watch...well acted. But it tries too hard to push the 'culture wars' political agenda. Not so subtle references to Trump's border wall... Heavy on the feminism... Addresses toxic masculinity.... Homophobia....  It's all there.

@thplinth... you'd fucking love it! :lol:

Watched the first episode last night. Definitely started off well. Looks a good shout. 👍

I'm about 3 or 4 episodes in to that and while I'm enjoying it, it is a bit confusing.  Not helped by the fact that some of the characters have different names in 2006 than they did in 1984!!  I'm just about following it but the missus is floundering!

Got to the end of episode 3. My attention span has gone with it. I laboured on through the third. Hard keeping up with the different names as you say.

I'm still not sure who some of the characters actually are.  The guy with the paint tin, the guy that fucked off the Berlin and the lookie likey lassie (although I think that'll be explained in the next one).

I finished the episode where the guy with the paint tin met the car on that country road. I swear he is that polis guy and the lassie in the car is his polis pal. My Wife says no. I even rewound it and paused it on his pus. I say it’s the polis guy(Rob/Adam) with a heavy beard. 
Actually, this is the second episode. I still have the third to start.

I can't be bothered with these shows that think they have to jump back and forward in time just to make it "interesting". If the story isn't good enough to be told in chronological order, why fukin bother?

I have just started series 2 of The Money Heist/La Casa De Papel, as recommended by a couple of posters on here.
Its about a robbery at the spanish Royal Mint and it flits back and forth from current day at the robbery , to the months of planning that took place prior to the robbery. 

Its pretty clever and  the format works well. Its definitely worth watching.

The programme is hugely entertaining so I very much doubt it. 

To be fair, the goings on at the Hunnery in recent years have been way more entertaining than most tv. 😂

Sounds more like the other side to be honest.

I mind the Only An Excuse episode where it was meant to be Barry Ferguson who had watched the new film with all the “monkeys running around in Celtic tops”...... Planet Of The Papes. 😂

You’d love Lost.

Also, may I suggest the film Memento.
