What TV show have you just watched

Apart from the obvious one, is it less ‘box ticking’ than the last couple of series, which made it almost unwatchable to me?
Never seen so many ethnic, gay people in one police box, even if it is huge inside!
It's even worse.
 
Having had time to mull it over.

The plot had more holes than a tramp's vest, was rather reminiscent of the film 'Predator' and the grand dad standing in for Bernard Cribbins.

I still think young Miss Whittaker is like a female Matt Smith but I have a suspicion her true role is that of Sylvester McCoy.
 
I've been watching Instinct this weekend. Entertaining enough but not much in the way of drama, surprises or the like. Alan Cummings plays a psychology professor who teams up with a NYPD detective as a consultant solving murders. As a sub plot Reinhart (Cummings' character) is gathering material from the cases for his second book. For some reason Whoopi Goldberg makes a few pointless appearances as his editor. Instinct is watchable but won't knock your socks off.
 
This week I will mostly be binge watching 'Killing Eve' on the iPlayer whilst in my hotel.

Agreed.
D.W. is not something I ever watched,even as a kid,but I was curious as to how the very talented Jodie Whittaker would play it.
I thought she was pretty good,but as I am not a fan I don't have much to compare her to,but not good enough to make me watch again.
 
Just watched the final episode of Get Shorty series 2, lined up nicley for series 3, am enjoying this.
 
This has got brilliant written all over it. Sir Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman's Good Omens, coming to Amazon Prime in 2019.
Amazon Prime and Netflix leading the way as always.

I just did a sex wee
 
More big ups for Man in High Castle S3.
Superb. Am up to Ep6 now & loving it.
I've been on the fence as to whether to watch Man in the High Castle..... so I guess I'd better get on and do it after so many recommendations.
 
Dr Who.

Ethnic representation? Check.
Strong women characters? Check. (I like Jodie Whittaker channelling Matt Smith)
Fairly useless men? Check.
Lesser known disability? Dyspraxia, check.

Vaguely reasonable plot? Can't have everything.
Almost exactly what I thought. I think Jodie W. will do well, she seemed really into it. The plot however, sucked. Someone mentioned it was a Predator rip-off, which it was, but I liked the trophy teeth stuck into the face of Tim Shaw.

They listed the upcoming actors in the series. Is every current British actor of East Indian descent? Except for Addy and Cummings, of course. Chris Noth is American.

Bottom line is, the writing will have to improve. Better stories than this one are needed.

Cheers,
Dan.
 
Manifest. A new series with just two episodes broadcast so far. A flight from Jamaica to New York runs into some turbulence on the way but lands safely. When they do so they discover that they've all been missing for five years and presumed dead. The flight number 828 seems to be significant and the survivors start hearing voices. Looks promising.

It was me two posts down that mentioned 'Predator' #6494

The Asian girl mentioned it being her 2nd year of probation. I thought coppers did one year.
 
This week I will mostly be Last night I ordered a pizza and beers whilst binge watching the whole of 'Killing Eve' on the iPlayer whilst in my hotel.
A bit tired today

Good mix with Miles, April, and the dude who got the 'balls in a jar' at the end :)

As of today, season 3 has not been confirmed or cancelled.

Has anyone watched Manhunt Unabomber on Netflix and if so, is it any good? UNABOMBER tells the dramatic and gripping true story of the FBI's hunt for theUnabomber, the deadliest serial bomber in history.
I have watched it, thought it was good. If you enjoy it you should also watch Mindhunter about the FBI and their attempt to understand and catch serial killers.
I will 2nd that Waffen - Highly recommend Manhunt and Mindhunter.
