    The Haunting of Hill House

    Brilliant. The first 6/7 episodes are some of the best tv I watched. Probably does struggle to carry the rest over the line but still entertaining enough. So maybe could be an episode or two shorter. Series has everything really, scary, good family drama (I did not cry a few times), good characters, really well pieced together and well directed. Good stuff

    4.5/5
    Going to watch The haunting of Bly Manor now?

    I will say this about Big Bang Theory the guy with glasses is much better doing this than he was playing Mark in the US Peep Show pilot

    Good to hear. I started ep1 and seem to have forgotten about it. A combination of being knackered, playing some vidya games and watching the euros hasn't helped.

    On the plus, side, if it's done on BBC now, I can effectively binge it all!
    Yeah, we binged it in a couple of days. It's a really fast paced season this time.

    Clarkson's Farm. 9/10

    It's like Springwatch meets The Grand Tour. The wife loved it, even though she can't bear TGT.

    Nice, just have to endure the long wait for the dvd/blu ray release, having binned sky a few years back. :-(

    Saw the prequel movie by renting it via xbl which was handy and saved me buying it.

    I've been a bit of Dougs myself. I started s1 and was really enjoying it, then got a ps5 and that's taking all my "me time". Couldn't convince the wife to watch it so limited availability.

    Yeah. No commute really reduces the time to watch shit that only I want to watch. Meagre PS5 time and Euros is about all I can manage at the moment

    There was something about Narcos. It was a bit too..I don't know, wacky. Not gritty like the subject matter needed. Needed to be more Like The Wire, I suppose.
    I know the re were horrible things going on but the tone was just off.
    Maybe it was just the average writing and the terrible lead actor amd his fucking moustache.

    Time

    Sean Bean is a drunk driver who kills a man and goes to jail, Stephen Graham is the prison officer.

    Obviously, thereís a LOT more to it than thatÖ..but the acting on display here is fucking sublime.

    Bean is probably the best heís ever been and Graham is excellent as usual.

    Worth watching just for those two.

    9/10

    I think they went with that direction because of a lot of the story is so ott and unbelievable.

    The actor playing Pablo is worth sticking around for 2 seasons.

    It's also a pretty well known story, so had to have a different angle

    Watching Prison Break and have finished series 1&2 over the last month or so, just watched the last episode of series 2 just now

    Itís incredibly infuriating as itís quite mostly enjoyable but total trash TV at the same time. Teetering on the edge in terms of abandoning it after the first two seasons

    Yeah I found the Narcos tone just massively out of sync with the content. "Haha Pablo Escobar broke the law". Really rubbed me up the wrong way.
