Just finished The Killing liked it a lot but not really the last season as much.

Breaking Bad, Homeland done

Was going to do Luther or The Wire next - can you tell me which one is best of the two?

Have joined the Succession party - blitzed through the first two series in a couple of days, absolutely love it.

Hawkeye is pretty good. High budget, 2 episodes out.

The "Rogers" the musical scene gave me a chuckle.

Border Town on Netflix is very good, just 3 episodes in each series, so no padding.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
each of the characters are so strong, even ones that at first I thought were just fillers like Cousin Greg who I now think is brilliant.

Keiran Culkin absolutely kills it, in a great way, who would have thought that he would put his big brother in the shadow after being the most famous child star in the world. His character is repulsive, funny, sneaky, underhand and just plain incredible.

Succession is first class, well worth investing the time in to watching that. My dad had recommended it for ages and I finally succumbed to watching it about a month ago and ploughed through all of the first two seasons and been watching the 3rd as it drops each week. Brilliant viewing, well acted with brilliant characters.

Just ploughed through the last series of Bosch. Brilliant as usual and can't wait for the next series where he becomes a PI, especially as it would appear the same crew (writers, directors etc.) are involved so should maintain it's high quality.
Also just finished the last series of What We Do In The Shadows. Fucking great that they're making another series.
Am struggling a bit with Stath Let's Flats, seems like a bit of a one trick pony, to me at least. Hope it improves or I'll sack it off.
I've heard Succession is good (?) so will probably give that a go next.

Regarding Mons...

The battle was a strategic victory for Germany, as the British stand at Mons slowed, but did not stop, the advance of the German army into France. The British suffered some 1,600 casualties, with losses concentrated especially in those units which occupied the canal salient. As many as 5,000 Germans were killed or wounded in the one-day engagement. These totals were comparable to 19th-century battles between European powers, such as those that occurred during the Crimean War (1853–56) or the Franco-German War (1870–71), and gave little indication of the bloodshed that would become commonplace on the Western Front.

...and for anyone remotely interested in military history it's easily one of the most magnificent war memorials in the world and the Canadian Army still posted there would love nothing better than you to try and deface it. You would have more holes in you than a Swiss cheese.

I really do hate being a pendant but for people on here who would like to have a Google up on an incredible WW1 story, possibly one of the very best war stories ever told it's Vimy ridge.

Well spotted. Pretty much anyone other than historians - and certainly not those in 'the arts' - have simply never been able to get over the simplistic 'lions led by donkeys' narrative that took root after post-war disillusionment.
It's a great disservice to those who fought and died.

Watching 'Invasion' - an Apple TV series.

Ok and quite intriguing bu,t as always, they seem to love padding these series out a bit when it could get to the point a lot quicker.

Have to keep watching now though as its hard to fathom the outcome.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
There's a new Amazon series "The Wheel of Time" which is absolute shite. It's not the new GOT. for sure.

I actually read the books as a teenager and I don't seem to remember them being this bad.

Generally I don't quite understand Amazon and their attempt to rival Netflix as a streaming entertainment option. I mean this so low budget and it's like SiFy channel. Why they'vre got the dosh surely.

I never watch ITV as the ads get on my tits, but now you can pay £3 a month and get it ad free.

So I watched Fearless, starring the late, great Helen McCrory. Very good it is too.

A great defence against the odds at Nimy Bridge lead by an Irishman and an Australian.
