    The Office UK 10/10

    Had not watched it for ages. Series 2 and specials are better than the first I think. Kinda gutting that there is only 14 episodes, but obviously Gervais likes ending things on a high. I heard that the David Brent movie is a pile of crap, anyone watched it?

    I always watch episodes of the US Office too. I probably prefer the US one at it's peak as there is a lot more of it, and a lot more good characters. US dropped way off a cliff later though.

    @JYM60 the movie is like someone had written Brent having only experienced him through memes and novelty birthday cards not the original series itself

    The Witcher

    Finally made it to the end. Only one duff episode I thought (the dragon one), but the rest were great. Really enjoyed it and looking forward to the next season. I'll definitely be giving this a rewatch before then though.

    9/10

    @wuntyate Finished this yesterday as well and I agree with you, and I only really found the dragon bit shit because of the weird disconnected voice-over for him, the rest of that episode was great.

    Finally completed Good Place.

    Came very late to the party on this and, wow. Funny, thoughtful, logical character arcs, nothing felt wasted and it went out on its own terms in a way that was touching and makes sense.

    Absolutely incredible television, at a time where I'd lost all hope that Americans could make anything funny. Perfectly uplifting but nuanced and tackles big subjects in a grounded way. Plus Ted Danson stealing every scene.

    10/10

    Brent movie has its moments but it suffers from being complete unnecessary and no Merchant.

    "Mental in the head or mental in the legs" is a line that gets me every time though.

    The Sopranos - Series 2 - 10/10

    The re-watch continues and series 2 is gold as well. Richie Aprile is a stone cold psychopath.

    Into series 3 and his mother very suddenly passes away, which feels like a disapointment considering what has come prior. However transpires, the actress had passed away The CGI work is a bit off, but I guess they had to make the best of it

    @cowell the way Ritchie fucks up Beansie is grim. And I miss Livia in later seasons. She was a piece of work. Brilliantly done.

    Ray Donovan s7 - 8/10

    Very consistent show for me always delivering an 8/10. Good acting with good characters and drama. It's a real shame it's now cancelled so we won't get the final season.

    If you're a fan of the show and haven't watched this season, don't. It will leave you extremely frustrated.

    Ralphie still takes the cake for me, for obvious reasons. Whereas Richie boy is a violent psychopath who doesn't mind hurting people, Ralph is a violent psychopath who *enjoys* hurting people.

    The whole show is a non-stop parade of cunts, which is why I don't think I'll ever be able to watch it a second time - it's exhausting how awful all the characters are.

    I wasn't able to finish Boardwalk Empire for that reason - too bleak, with too few redeemable characters. (Sopranos was far too well-written to quit. It was also a lot funnier than B.E., which helped a lot. )

    @sirtacos What keeps me coming back is that despite the fact that they are awful cunts, you can't help but like them (the central characters anyway). Even after so many repeated viewings, it's still utterly compelling. I've just got to Pine Barrens again. Best. Episode. Evar

    Edit: doh, brain fart there!

    Pine Barrens mate ;)
    That is awesome, the miscommunication between Tony to Paulie over the cell and then to Chris is pure Gold.

    Directed by...Steve Buscemi no less!

    Working my way through The X-Files on Prime Video. When I was a nipper, I used to get my mum to record them off BBC2, so really only saw episodes from the latter half of S2, S3, and S4.

    S1: it has not aged well, but has some neat episodes. I think there's only one episode that can be considered part of the 'myth-arc' story in this season: the rest are monster-of-the-week.

    I don’t care it’s only episode 1/4, Frankie Boyle’s Tour Of Scotland is a joy, so many good one liners. “The place has more vegetables than I could ever leave on the side of my plate in my life”, “Glen Coe is like me- rugged and beautiful. And responsible for the disappearance of several ramblers”,

    Though I've not technical completed the season yet, i'm loving Condor. It was on Universal last month where i series linked it and promptly forgot about it.

    I do like a government conspiracy thriller and for the second night in a row i'm glued to it and only have 3 eps left.
  • Deleted user 8 February 2020 03:12:44
    @askew did the same a few months back. Gave up around the end of season 2 as it was becoming less alien mystery and more horror. Apparently the following series just got worse.
  • Deleted user 8 February 2020 03:13:13
    @mothercruncher thanks for the tip, I'll add it to my backlog.

    When I rewatched a couple of years ago I was surprised how fast the conspiracy arc was introduced and progressed. I’d remembered it being a slow burn that was introduced after a long lead in of monsters of the week but it’s there from the start

    Seinfeld season 1

    First three are all up on All4 now.

    Some of the acting is a bit stiff to begin with but the jokes and characters still totally hold up. After Mrs Maybe’s Friends binge it’s a nice change of pace to see people who know how terrible they are.

    The early ‘Woody Allen’ George takes a bit of getting used to when the ‘Larry David’ version of the character is who he was always meant to be.

    8.7/10

    I agree. It’s actually now one of my all time favourite shows. It’s hard to make a show where you like every single character. Ted Danson is absolute gold.

    Yeah, the second half of the final season has been fantastic, still got a couple of episodes left but really don't want it to end.

    Few laugh out load moments as well. “What in the name of Kevin Spacey’s self-made Christmas Eve video message to try to get back on House of Cards is going on here?” had me chuckling for ages.

    I always thought The Good place looked like one of those quirky irritating american comedy dramas where everyone is funny and clever a la Buffy or Gilmore Girls which I've always despised but its gotten such overwhelming praise on here that I really need to give it a go.
