What TV show have you just watched

After he died, his American wife tried to milk it by producing a US series called something like 'Bindy the Jungle Princess' in which their eponymous daughter - in her own 'Mini-me' safari suit - got to handle koala, bush babies and the like.

Not sure if it was ever shown in the U.K. But it was on one of the few English-language TV channels available in Cambodia.

Terrible. In every way imaginable.
Bindi is all grown up and on dancing with the stars.


Tricky to watch, as there are a lot of memories pulled up for her in a very emotional context.

No way did the network hope for this.....
 
Season 1 of Amazon's GOLIATH was outstanding and thoroughly enjoyable to watch so based on that we binged watched Season 2 yesterday.

DO NOT READ MY REVIEW IF YOU ARE ABOUT TO WATCH IT

We must have missed an important point in the first 30 seconds because it devolved into a mind boggingly confusing plot line. Not helped by casting three characters with the same beard and body type it took a second to try and figure out is this the good guy, bad guy #1 or bad guy #2 talking which caused even more missed dialogue. The plot line can only be described as weird, wacky and dumb, episode seven in particular started with an 'out of the blue know not why' hostage scene straight out of a Quentin Tarantino movie - just bonkers - so much so that I started fast forwarding 7 mins in, the scene ended 40 minutes later in the same house and the same people still yelling at each other - batshit. Totally disappointed with the show altogether.
 
I re-watched the superb BBC series Behind the lines dealing with selection and training for the RM Mountain and Arctic Warfare cadre a few weeks ago, and today returned to BBC4 to see if they had anything else of that standard. This is one of the other offerings, and it's frighteningly bad and embarrassing, in production and content. Admittedly it's as much about the political embarrassments of the period, but that quality certainly translated to what they showed of Pathfinder Platoon, which deserved far better. Dear me.
 
Have just watched Ep 12 of the current Billions series. Fooking hell it keeps on delivering. I thought it had a couple of meh episodes earlier on but its cranked up the ante again. Looking forward to the Axe/Chuck interaction with a possible new dynamic. .
 
Lucifer has been picked up by Netflix. Lets hope it follows the trend of other Netflix shows and goes dark.
I want to see the Prince of Darkness get nasty and Mazakeen show why she is Hells chief assassin / torturer.

Non of this namby pamby ‘ohhh Chloe is going to marry the Lieutenant’ bullshit. Bring on the ‘suck it Chloe, I’m the devil...bitch, oh and make room for Maze, she is joining us tonight’.
 
Wife and I finished binge watching GODLESS again a Netflix 8 part Western.

I have mentioned this before on this thread but have never seen anyone else post a review but let me reiterate, if you have a chance to watch it do so.

If you can't be arsed to watch all eight episodes open up the last one turn the lights down, crank up the sound system, grab a beer or whatever and watch the final gunfight, I guarantee you will rewind it.








It was a good shoot out
 
"F" is For Family, animated series on Netflix of a family living in 1973 America. Bill Burr, the stand up comedian is the voice of the father, a Korean War veteran working at a shitty airline after his dreams of being a pilot went south.
Its offensive, definately not PC, loads of swearing and shagging and funny as ****.
 
Just finished the Staircase on Netflix which is a 13 part series following the real murder trial of Michael Peterson over the 17 years it's taken to conclude.He's an ex US marine Capt and author who's trying to prove his innocence over his wife falling down the stairs.

It's interesting as you follow the defence case, the prosecution originally had a film crew also but pulled out. It's full of twists and turns even I did get a bit bored with some of the the family love stuff in every episode but fast forward is your friend here.
 
Just managed to watch Fauda SE02 on al-Netflix.

I quite enjoyed it, all rather preposterous stuff. Bit like "Hebrew Spooks".

If you haven't seen SE01, it continues the activities of a unit of Israeli plainclothes officers whose tasks is to blend into Arab/Palestinian enviroments for intelligence gathering or arrest operations.

or as Al-Jazz puts it about the مستعربين

Musta'ribeen, or mista'arvim in Hebrew, is a word that is derived from the Arabic "musta'rib", or one that is specialised in Arabic language and culture. In Israeli security terms, the word denotes security forces who disguise themselves as Arabs and carry out missions in the heart of Palestinian societies or other Arab countries.
Musta'ribeen, Israel's agents who pose as Palestinians

It's all probably as realistic as Spooks is of our lot, I imagine the Israeli O-groups and planning are a lot more than standing around smoking and saying "We take down the peice of shit".

But some good plot, nice set piece scenes of covert operations and some good "MP, MP - we require urgent assistance" moments. The whole title is taken from the Arabic word for Chaos, فوضى

it's subtitled throughout, as the cast switches from Hebrew to Arabic depending on the scene

For a much more realistic account, check out The Green Prince. The story of a high level HAMAS asset, told by the source himself and the Shin Bet handler in interview for the documentary.

There was a one off of some of the behind the lines crew a few years later. The Sgt had retired and bought into a print firm. Cpl wotsit, the pink helmet, who kept royally screwing up eventually ended up as CSM of the wing. The chap who was best student continued to do well he was OC of the wing for a while, did a staff job and the last time I saw him he was expecting to be annointed as a half-colonel, well deserved.

I don't suppose you have a link? I vaguely remember seeing ex Sgt 'Mac' McLean in a subsequent 'where are they now' programme. It's reassuring to know that such people are well established as civvies after their service. I employed a few after my own singularly undistinguished time in the military, to great effect.

Sadly not a clue where it could be found nowadays other than some dank BBC archive.
