    DC Titans Season 1 - 8/10 Went in expecting this to be rubbish but pleasantly surprised. It's bonkers, dark, violent and really well made. I've now got a thing for Starfire ;) Any show that can shoehorn in Brendan Fraser is worth a look!

    That's kind of where I am on it, too. The trailer made it look like weapons grade bullshit, but it's surprisingly good.

    I like that it's 'all in' on the DCU, too, including how ludicrous it all is.

    Be careful watching in public. Some of the interior design choices aren't for younger audiences ;)

    Ha, I've watched quite a lot of either violent or mildly sex-obsessed box sets on my commute. Entertaining seeing some of the reactions at 7.30am.

    Kingdom Season 1

    Korean period drama mixed with zombies, on Netflix.

    It's like Game of Thrones if the White Walkers broke the wall after the first episode. There's a little bit of court intrigue, but mostly stuff moves very very quickly. Almost too quickly in places - in later episodes, people can apparently forge weapons and make complex defence structures in the space of an afternoon.

    But it's very good all the same. It looks amazing, the effects are great, and it's just a lot of fun to watch. Definitely up for a Season 2.

    9/10

    Sex education - 7/10 - Enjoyable enough though really confused setting. Is it America? Why is everyone English? Is it the 80's then why does everyone have smart phones? I don't really get the thought process that ended up with it like this. The dedication to producing the 80's look is pretty strong in places but in others completely ignored. Did they start out with the idea of making a period drama and then shelved the idea? But then why have something that's so clearly an American high school with all it's culture transplanted into a UK setting.

    I guess it's all an aesthetic choice but it never stops being weird but not really in the right way. I wonder if American's even realise how weird this all is to someone from the UK.

    As for the actual program outside of the weird aesthetic I thought it started well but the story lines got a bit too silly and cliched towards the end. The writing felt like it got weaker as it went on and some terribly on the nose message stories got trotted out.

    Russian Doll - 10/10

    Takes a tired old trope and expands on it so much, and into so many different genres, it becomes a wonderful mind altering unique thing of it's own.

    Genuinely brilliant.

    Still working our way through this - it takes to the end of episode 3 before it properly gets going.

    Sex Education. 7.5/10. I agree tonally it's all over the place but it's clearly deliberate. Probably to try and rope in as many high school tropes as possible. But it's got some great characters who you quickly care about. I liked it a lot.

    Kingdom 7/10

    The makers of Walking Dead could learn a few things from this show. Loses a point for the abrupt ending. Hopefully the wait for S2 isn't too long.

    Catastrophe series 4 (4od)

    Excellent way to conclude the entire series, as SH and RD have said that is all folks.

    Loved it from the first episode of series 1 to the 6th of series 4. It help that I find Sharon Horgan super hot and talented, both she and Rob Delaney have such great chemistry, the writing is brilliant, the humour mostly very adult and very funny. The supporting cast are also great.

    Look forward to see what they do next. I would love more "pulling" from SH. many years old now but one of the funniest things ever on tv.

    10/10

    Camping (2016) series 1

    Another one of my favourite writers/performers, Julia Davis comedy about a group of old friends who go on a camping holiday in Devon to celebrate Noel's birthday.

    JD's usual mix of gross out comedy with witty writing, very strong supporting cast with Rufus Jones and the horrible (in the series) Vicki Pepperdine being the standouts. It was good without being brilliant.

    I found that rather like Sally 4ever it rather ran out of steam.

    6/10

    The Trip series 1 & 2

    Loved the first series, beautifully observed comedy, real pathos in the sad bits, hilarious improvisation and wonderful views of the contryside.

    Second I never really got a feel for the location and the fun was undermined by Brydon's completely out of character actions at the end of the first and sixth episodes.

    Series One: 9/10
    Series Two: 7/10

    I really enjoyed this as well, but donít think I got the full measure of it as I was having streaming issues last week which meant I
    wasnít fully focused on it in the last couple of episodes. Yet I had to watch it because I was enjoying it a lot.
