Just watched the first episode of Defending Jacob on Apple TV (I watched it on Kodi) - must say it's got me hooked.
The "Superb Owl" episode show just how well the cast and writers interact - take a lame pun and transform it into a well-rounded story with some excellent set-piece gags.
It took me a couple of minutes to clock that joke...and then I giggled for several minutes.
What is Devs on?
Presumably about developers?
In a way, difficult to say without ruining it though. They’re basically developing something. I didn’t think it was absolutely amazing, but a good watch none the less.
I also spent all of Sunday watching Gangs of London. Ridiculously brutal and OTT, but fairly compelling none the less, I enjoyed it despite some silliness here and there.
I’m very late to the party on this one. Finally got round to watching “After Life” this evening, after several friends had recommended it. Binge-watched the first four episodes so have really enjoyed it so far. Great cast and have found it funny and moving. Funnily enough, though, already agree about the therapist character - don’t feel he adds anything.
Just finished S3 of Westworld, was alright but nothing compared to S1 and S2.
Watched the first few episodes, bits are very funny but it just felt very preachy, like Ricky Gervais is trying to make the audience stop and think about stuff. Bit too patronising.
Everyone is raving about "normal people", halfway through and not convinced. 2 people who are essentially quite boring, in a melodrama with hilariously bad sex scenes.
Code 404 on Sky.
Interesting spin on the cop buddy genre with some comedy and scifi thrown in.
The 'A' Word on BBC is very good family drama. I should however warn forumites that no one brutally murders anyone, takes or bakes crystal meth nor is there titty.
A bit late to the party, but just finished a race across the world on iplayer. Really enjoyed it!
Quite honestly, I felt the last 3 or 4 episodes were terrible and has almost destroyed the show. We waited 2 years for that??
Really like that series - a couple of episodes behind the latest one so don’t know who won yet. It’s nice to watch a reality show which is a genuine challenge, is interesting and seems to feature decent people. And nice to be reminded of a time when we could still go and explore other countries.
Great programme, but all the better for editing down what must really just be a succession of interminable bus journeys broken up by some amazing sights and experiences.
I did think that. I read an interview with Dom & Lizzie where they basically said they didn't sleep properly, sometimes went 3/4 days without having a proper meal and the majority of the time is spent on buses or waiting for buses!
Brassic is back for a second series, good light hearted fun, really enjoyed the first series.
How about car chases or fight scenes? If not them I'm out.
I watched the first two episodes of Dave last night on Iplayer. Very funny and has the same offbeat feel as Flight of the Concordes. Looking forward to more of them.
Nothing. A couple with Downs Syndrome make some decisions about their life together, but they don’t run anyone over along the way.
Does anyone one know where I can watch both Curb your enthusiasm & Succession in the UK for free? Preferably legally, but open to other suggestions...
The magnificent Charlie Brooker is on BBC 2 in 10 minutes with a new ‘wipe’. Happy days.
Watched it last night, brilliant stuff. The description of Hancock as both Peter Pandemic, and your sisters first boyfriend with a car had me in bits.
And Boris Johnson as ‘King Womble, seen here dressed as a giant lemon’
Urged me to get one Brooker’s books off the shelf, a collection of his Guardian articles from 07-08. Eerily relevant stuff in there about his worries that Boris Johnson might win the London mayoral election... So funny, I know he’s had huge success as a TV writer and good on him, I bet he’s absolutely minted now. I really miss hearing his own angry voice though, all of his Screenwipes and Newswipes are still on YouTube, they hold up pretty well.
White Lines. Unbelievably more fat fetched and stupid than gangs of London, but a delicious and enjoyable guilty pleasure none the less.
