What TV show have you just watched

Hunters on Amazon Prime. Watched the first 3 episodes last night and thoroughly enjoyable. Bits of dark humour with good action and story telling. Worth a watch. The missus even put her phone down and paid attention!

The first four episodes of Season One of "Elementary" courtesy of Amazon Prime. Jonny Lee Miller makes a far better telly version of Sherlock Holmes than that over-exposed, over-promoted and far too over-rated man with the too easy to take the piss out of name with the bad American accent that stars as Marvel's Doctor Strange. Not as good as Jeremy Brett, obviously, but maybe it's because I prefer the original stories to their modern updating.

Watched David Baddiel doing his Holocaust deniers docu stuff. Very interesting if not WTF at some of the utter cockwombleness of the deniers....or whatever ilk they are. He met an Irish bloke who was utterly mental.
 
Just had an Email from Netflix advising me that Better Call Saul is now available.
That's me sorted for the next few days.

If you've never watched it, do Breaking Bad first as BCS is a spin off, done very very well. I like the characters and some of the story line leaps are nothing short of inspired.
 
Watching Love your garden on ITV, it's all about a young teenage lad with terminal cancer. The room is very dusty! :(
 
Reilly Ace of Spies episode 1 (double length episode) just starting on Talking Pictures TV.

That's my Tuesday evenings sorted for the next 12 weeks.
 
Hunters. Al Pacino. Violent. Odd I always thought he was an eyetie.

Trapped. S2. A watchable Netflix Icelandic Detective Series. Great Scenery. Odd, the top cop has worn the same overcoat and sweater for the past Sixteen Episodes spanning a year at least - he must stink. More murders in one tiny village than Iceland has had in 10 years total.

68. Whiskey. Liking it a lot.

You reckon Iceland is bad?

Try Oxford - about 63% of the population has been shot.

It would have made the old Jonesy proud (if he were still here of course. RIP).

Yep, Oxford does seem to have more than it's fair share.

Jonesy proud (if he were still here of course. RIP).???? Did I miss something?

Jonesy's dead? YEEE... Oh, I mean - how sad.
 
Just watched Michael Portillo’s Great British Railway Journeys. In tonight’s episode he visited Burton Upon Trent, home to that marmite product - Marmite, which was originally a by product of the Breweries. Unsurprisingly, Michael isn’t a fan, but he met up with a barking mad woman who is a member of a Secret Society known as the Marmarati! Apparently they call Marmite the “sticky mistress”! :smile:
It takes all sorts I suppose. Michael as ever, treated her with an ideal mix of politeness and incredulity. Informative and fun. The Marmarati

Rewatched Northern Ireland The Secret War (That’s what it was all about for those LMF’s who occupie this thread) on IPlayer. Took us back to,1969 and the beginning and over the next 7 episodes recounts the war and the IRA’s (Irish Republican Army, for the non-servers and none news aware LMFs) role in perpetrating. Such. Eventually covers Blair’s role in the Peace Process, but nothing about Maurice Oldfields maxim Follow the Money.
Still worth a look see.

I do like MP but, just like the subject, he can be a bit marmite - some like him some detest him. I am in the former group.

Yesterday's edition was better when he visited a Clarion Hut, early Socialist/ Labour Party group, and when Porty asked how they could tell he was a,Tory he was told "Because you haven't paid for your tea!". Portillo just cracked up at that, he has no problem laughing at himself.

Netflix dropped a new telekinetic teen drama graphic novel adaptation yesterday called I'm Not OK With This which my daughter had me watching as she's a fan of the writer who also did The End of The ******* World in graphic novel, it's from the Stranger Things producers and directed by the bloke that did The End of the ******* World. It's a bit derivative in a Carrie meets Scanners way but the seven episode are only 25 minutes long so it was shorter than The Irishman, it's well written and acted particularly the lead role who was a the ginger girl from IT films and the kid that played her little brother. I wasn't really expecting to enjoy it as much as I did, I hope they do a second series because I want to know what happens next.

Me & the lass have watched the Great Pottery Throwdown since it kicked off a few series ago on BBC. Channel 4 now have it & as with that Bake Off prog are making a much better fist of it. Its a cracking show at times with some superb quality stuff done. The resident judging panel are a couple of pottery luminaries who are great. Now hosted by the delicious Melanie Sykes which helps a lot.
 
There’s a great programme on about lifeboatmen and the RNLI. Very brave people. (Helpfully I cant remember the title).

Just watched this. It broke my heart. What a lovely young man. When you think about all the people in life who are complete and utter shits and who sail along causing grief everywhere they go and yet nothing bad ever seems to happen to them.....then you find a kind and gentle young man like Harri with what should be all his life ahead of him and he gets dealt the cruelest blow. I can hardly bear to think about what he and his family and friends are going to have to deal with. Those people currently whinging in Tenerife because they can’t come home for 2 weeks need to have a good, hard look at themselves.

Used iPlayer tonight to watch a BBC4 program shown yesterday called Handmade. No commentary, just a film of a bladesmith making a Damascus kitchen knife from scratch. A pleasure to watch.
