    In the last week I've binge watched series 1, and am now 5 episodes into series 2, it's pretty compelling viewing.

    I've watched 3 episodes of this & I can't see why you think it's amazing.

    Daredevil - Season 2: 7/10

    Mostly good but I didn't enjoy it as much as the first one. Punisher was a good addition but Matt's constant moralising about his refusal to kill was extremely tiresome. Karen's storyline was bizarre and tedious, and as much as I like the way most of the fight scenes are done, it became a case of quantity over quality towards the end.

    I gave this a try since I vaguely remember reading at least one of the books many years ago. Didn't really grab me, just felt a bit generic and I lost interest.

    Arrogant cop who plays by his own rules, loyal partner, & gets a pass from his boss, seen it all before. It's boring.

    Childhood's End 3/10

    Three-parter based on Arthur C Clarkes book.
    I haven't read the book, but I found this rather tedious.

    Well i'd just watched all of them so was on a high from it, so maybe was over the top, but I think it is really good.

    Difficult to get too into a series within 3 episodes though. At least give it the 10 of the first series.

    Occupied - 8/10

    Norwegian political drama (subtitled) not afraid to tackle the issues of being a small country bordering an expansionist Russia.
    I was a bit bemused by the ending though.

    I concur..very gripping. Apparently they're making season 2 as well.

    Rumoured to be centred around Hurricane Katrina.
    Bit of luck they get it right and it doesn't end up like season two of True Detective.

    It was good. I thought they handled the last episode really well.

    Annoying though as he was obviously guilty as sin.

    Really? It's a bit too Soap Opera-y for me at times. Can't rate it above a 7 so far.

    I saw bits of a couple of episodes and it pissed me off so much that I couldn't enjoy it :laugh:

    I think that was part of the point though. The whole trial was a soap opera.

    Narcos - 9/10

    Thought it was great. Started watching it when I got home from work on Friday, and ended up staying awake until 4am to finish.

    Haven't block watched anything like that since Breaking Bad. :thumb

    I must admit, I found the first half of the season to be a solid 9/10 personally. Really enjoyed it.

    Second half however, probably 7/10, still good though.

    8/10 overall for season 2.

    The bits in the coutroom are fine, but I'm talking about little snippets of the Kardashians and the sub-plot of potential romance between Marcia and Darden etc.

    Just doesn't need that shit, stick to the actual story, that's what we're watching for.

    The Kardashian scenes were silly but stopped after the first couple.
