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?

I always enjoyed stranger things , but thought this season was top top drawer. Really stepped it up another level.

Anyone watched For All Mankind on Apple TV?

I had been quite enjoying the first season and some of the second, before it descended into an extremely unsubtle lecture about how all women are brilliant and strong and brave and clever, and better than all men who are stupid and weak and cowardly and flawed.

I’ve been watching on kodi.
But as said starts next week.

Don, where are you able to watch Season 5 of Snowfall. I've loved the first 4 seasons but cant see the 5th on iPlayer so keen to know where i can see it.

Yeah I started Snowfall but for some reason started to lose interest half way through season 1. Might need to pick it up again.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Snowfall is superb.
On season 5 now.
All about the start of the crack cocaine epidemic in LA in the 80’s.
First 4 seasons are on bbc iPlayer.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Yep, I agree with a lot of that Nagel. They made a big thing about Chrissie Hynde’s involvement. They could just as easily had Shane McGowen in it and making a thing of him being inspired to make punk Irish rebel songs. It would have been equally as irrelevant but he wasn’t as good looking and didn’t shag Steve Jones.

I still watched it though. It was mildly entertaining in a car crash sort of way

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Only saw the first couple of episodes of Pistol. Awful writing, terrible casting, poor directing.

The bloke playing Malcolm McLaren looked about the same age as the one playing Steve Jones. In real life he was 10 years older. For some reason Chrissie Hynde was a major character. Quite a lot of blatantly made up bollocks in it.

Lonely Boy is a good book, but it seems to have been very freely adapted, to put it politely, and was written by an Australian who'd previously written stuff like Strictly Ballroom and Moulin Rouge. He clearly knew fuck all about what he was writing about.

Danny Boyle is a great director but his work here was shit too.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
I just finished Pistol on Disney +. It was a bit shit and embarrassing at times, but watchable all the less. I’m not surprised that John Lydon slated it because the person who plays him sounds like a right cunt. Now, we all know that he is a cunt, but not in the same way. It is supposed to be based on Steve Jones’s excellent book Lonely Boy.

Alfs - Well, there were enquiries with the plods shambolic handling of the case and while no charges were brought the consensus was that because it was gays that were murdered a homophobic issue was probably at play. i think I read that four out the five cops that were on the case have since been promoted.

Have you seen 'Des' ITV mini-series about Dennis Nielsen? it's okay, but not as good as Four Lives.

I finished Sherwood - fantastic TV.

Alfs 5:33 Wed Jul 6
Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Good shout about 4 Lives, Manuel. How fucking useless are our cops?! My Springer Spaniel would have worked that on out in a day.

It reminds me of the Post Office debacle, where Post Office owners were prosecuted for fraud, Did no one think that hundreds of Post Office owners had all of a sudden tried to steal from them.

Frightening that common sense seems to be disappearing.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Kermode is very hit and miss. He has a very public blind spot for certain directors. ("My mate Billy Friedkin.") And Danny Boyle are two that come to mind. And seem's very cautious not to upset Disney too much when reviewing Marvel or Star Wars Movies.
As for The Boys. It's fucking ace. Ain't seen any of the new season. But will do a binge session when I get a day off in the month.

Kermode's alright, loved his Sex And The City rants.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Mark Kermode is a fucking awful film critic. Writes such a lot of drivel.

I was the first recommend The Boys as I download a lot of stuff that isn't available to a lot of punters. I usually stay ahead of the bunch.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Isn't this very Fred and the box set recommendations one of the only reasons to use this site during the summer window?

Sometimes you don't want a mainstream review with Mark Kermode seeing how many times he can get 'remarkable' into a sentence. You really want a hairy-arsed middle aged West Ham supporter to tell you if you're about to piss away six hours you'll never get back. It's saved me untold times.

After a while you get to trust certain posters and can be reasonably sure they'll point you at something interesting. Likewise there are posters whose recommendations you swerve completely.

Not naming any names but these films go along the lines of 200 black labs trapped on a US submarine that has been targeted by the Germans because these labs have been specially trained by the US Marine Corps to end the war for the USA. The only person who can save the day and win the war for the USA is Tom Hanks on a racehorse that can hold its breath for a really really long time.
