THE best ever. Stick with it though, a few people I know have struggled with the dialect in the first couple of episodes but it’s worth riding it out. 

I'm sticking with it  but it's not really gripped me yet. On episode 5 of first series

Not just saying this but it does start picking up from here on.

Started watching stranger things season 4. I don't think I'll be doing episode 2. Absolute shite.

American high schools seem to be full of 30 year olds

Stranger things 4. Not as good as the first 3. It's dragging on a bit, I'm losing interest......then I find out this series is being released in two blocks 🙄

Watched the first episode of series 4 last night. Thought it was ok. The start and end of the episode probably saved it. It seemed to veer into a 1980’s remake of Grease at one point , and for too long. But I will stick with it for now. I quite liked the new character that is head of the Hellfire Club.

Watched episode 2 last night. Meh. Could have done with a book myself.

The 2nd batch of episodes of season 4 better be worth it. The twist at the end of the first batch of episodes was decent but hopefully it's setting up a big finale

You are the second person to tell me there is a twist. Think i will just fast forward to the last episode and save myself a few hours 😁

I feel this season is trying a bit too hard to be ‘silly’ . Previously there was a good balance of serious and silly but they are over egging it a bit. The scene last night ( no spoilers ) with Jonathan and his Indian pal where he was in a dilemma about Nancy. It was totally pointless. They could have done with reducing this  episode to 1 hour instead of 1 hr 17 mins,  just by cutting out the crap. 
Although I am pretty sure someone will come along saying they enjoyed that bit 😁

Agree on The Wire. My missus struggled with the dialect first time around but it’s well worth sticking with. Some brilliant characters and great storylines make it one of the best ever.

We've run out of stuff to watch and are currently watching Boardwalk Empire which we missed first time around. Gave up on The Staircase which just didn’t grab me at all.

I have got to the end of this part and I am still enjoying it. I still probably preferred the previous series and wish I could get Running up that hill out of my head......🤣

Been watching ‘Hacks’ on Amazon Prime. Took me a couple of episodes to get into it but its easy watching and I have grown to like the characters.

The last season of Killing Eve is without a doubt the biggest pile of self indulgent shite I've ever watched.  I've got one episode to go and have literally forced myself to watch the last 4 or 5.  It's really, really awful and a shame given how good the first 2 seasons were.

Sky Arts - showing all episodes of Tales Of The Unexpected (Bit dated, but didn't remember the amount of well regarded actors that where in many of the episodes)

Sony Channel - showing all episodes of Starsky & Hutch (love it,  takes me back to my teens, also skin tight jeans with flares where fuckn awful looking 🤣)
