    Doctor Who - S9

    Bloody hell, Capaldi is brilliant.

    Couple of duff episodes but I really enjoyed it overall.

    8/10

    Disenchantment

    Essentially Futurama in a medieval fantasy setting complete with a core trio similar to Leela, Fry and Bender.

    Considering it's brand new it's comfortingly familiar and finds its feet in no time.

    Looking forward to more already.

    8.5/10
    Hadn't gotten around to it before but I'm watching this right now and I love it.
    So far it's as if there are no weaker episodes and it's gotten hearty laughs out of me repeatedly, something that is rare nowadays (having seen so much comedy already it often seems too familiar)

    Sooo, finally got round to watching Gomorrah season 1 having bought the season 1-3 bluray.

    It's a bit good innit? I thought Ciro would be all right at the start, but no, turns out he's a total dick too!

    No honour amongst thieves, eh? 😉

    Lolling for stuff to watch with 'er indoors, is Bosch any good? We watched the first episode tonight and it seems pretty decent except for his mildly troubling face.

    Attack on Titan S1

    Decent. Suffers from typical anime tropes of over zealous melodrama and shouting, but its interesting, as some really nicely crafted animation and a story that is intriguing. Like the strategy elements to the battles, but it does suffer everything feeling like it is going at a million miles per hour but seemingly moving the whole story on a couple of yards.

    3/5

    I really like it. I'm a fan of the books, so it took me a while to adjust to Titus Welliver being Bosch but otherwise it's a good interpretation. Not stellar but very watchable and binge worthy.

    If you haven't watched it, you have to check out Mrs Maisel. Definitely one to watch with the missus.

    @Decks Another thumbs up for Bosch - really good and the wife liked it even more than me (she went on to read some of the books after).

    OK cheers, I'll stick with it. I'm not normally a fan of cop show things but I quite like the cut of his jib.

    I don’t think so. Can’t stop laughing.

    Got so much I haven’t seen. Peep Show, Line of Duty, Black Mirror, Luke Cage series 2, The Supranos, The Wire and Breaking Bad. I’ll get around to them eventually. I may do Luke’s Cage just before Iron Fist Series 2 comes out.

    The first season of Bosch is deffo the weakest with its standard serial killer schtick. The following seasons are better.

    I'd love to have not seen any peep show and have it all to look forward to. My most rewatched show, easily. Just great characters.

    Thanks for the heads up on Bosch from you chaps, we're going to start season 1 tonight. The wife has read and loved the books but for some reason the series passed us by... looking forward to it!

    Frankenstein Chronicles

    Sean Bean investigates as bodies start turning up stitched together and semi-animated. Production values seem to veer wildly from huge well dressed sets and crowd scenes to cosplaying round the back of National Trust site. It's a lot better than i expected, more murder mystery than horror, think The Alienist but done for ITV. An easy lazy afternoon watch that tickles my interest in historic, crime and horror shows all at once.

    At least three big Sharpe Easter eggs in the opening episode too.

    7/10

    My Kitchen Rules

    It hasn't finished yet, but I'm loving this programme. It's an Australian cooking show where teams of two cooks are placed into two groups and have to cook in various places in Australia. The two teams with the lowest score in each group have to cook in elimination house to stay in the competition.

    Think it's going into the home stretch as there are 8 teams left and they are all together. There are couple who are complete cunts who I hope lose.

    The score I'm giving this programme... is a 10.

    Haha im hooked on it as well Jono, the finale has already happened though so if you are watching at English pace you are at risk of spoiling it. They have had some amazing cooks on it over the years though.

    Man in High The High Castle - S2

    What load of boring shite! I really enjoyed S1 and was intrigued where they'd go with the 'films' and the guy making them but instead they chuck all the characters around the globe and focus on pointless shit like Joe and his daddy issues. Also, they couldn't make the Nazis and Japanese more clichéd if they tried. Really disappointing

    I concur. They are my top 3 of all time. In that order too.

    Keeping Faith. (BBC1)
    Drama about a husband (who is a lawyer) who disappears, leaving on first thoughts very little way of clues or reasons for vanishing. Upon digging a bit more, there is a lot more to it.
    He leaves his wife, also a lawyer and 3 young children, set in Wales.

    Good but could have easily been 6 episodes

    @Dougs Wow. Until now, I've yet to find anyone that agrees with my opinion that Sopranos is better than The Wire. It's a constant source of debate with family/friends.

    I was wondering when series 3 was airing earlier today (5h October) but I agree, I didn't enjoy series 2 as much as the first because things got a bit sidetracked.

    I didn't mind that the characters were a bit clichéd; I think the characters are all great and clearly defined. I don't like it when series start frustratingly padding things out though, instead of concentrating on the main story, which is clearly the case here.

    Admittedly I need to rewatch The Wire and I did love it. But I'm now on my 6th run through of the sopranos, which probably speaks volumes. I just love the characters. Next time The Wire cycles back round on NowTV, I'll give it another whirl.

    In my humble opinion Gomorrah is superior to 2 out of the 3 shows in that list but The Wire is still the best tv show I have seen.

    I know as I say this it's stupid and of course it won't be the case, but when I saw it was a BBC drama called Keeping Faith I briefly thought that the main character would be called Faith. I mean, that's ridiculous isn't it?

    I've watched the Wire about 5/6 times now and still pick up on new stuff everytime. That said, I'm watching through the Sopranos for the 3rd time with my roommate who's experiencing it for the first time and it's just so unbelievably good. The humour (Chirs & Paulie especially) and the family dynamics just constantly crack me up.

    The Wire & The Sopranos are apples & oranges IMO. Each does its own thing to great effect, but I don't think either benefits from a direct comparison, as it ultimately boils down to personal taste. As far as I'm concerned they're both basically literature on TV. The Sopranos is much more introspective and character-driven. The Wire is like a Visible-Human-Project-style cross-sectional slice of contemporary America; it's much more political and plot-driven.
