    I used to think this too, but recently I gave them a chance on ITV 4 and the Ray Daley episodes have better plots, the Terry Mcann ones were getting stale and predictable. A lot less fisticuffs in the Ray episodes, but then even the Terry ones had much less aggro in the later series.

    Love it. Amazing how little you could get away with now since little Britain was broadcast

    All Or Nothing Juventus

    Far better than the City and Spurs versions. I thought City's was boring, except for that bit with the Manchester derby and Liverpool, and Spurs one lacked personalities.

    This had adequate entertainment with Juventus' dodgy league form and UCL failure. They also have far more personalities in their side, though I wish they had included more players. Don't understand why they completely blanked the likes of Dybala, Ramsey and Szczesny.

    My respect for the likes of Chiellini and Buffon has increased, and a special mention to Chiesa who comes across as this likeable kid who is just happy to be around his idols.

    While Bonucci comes out looking like just another angry old man, it's Nedved who comes out looking the worst for me. Like those right hand men of kings who hang around the entire proceedings like a bad shadow.

    Still there is so much to like in this. Also do look out for the shots of food. Italian do that right.

    The Test with the Australian Cricket team remains the best for this format. But Amazon are learning, especially with the ending they gave to this one.

    Gomorrah season 5

    I thought the first 4 seasons were good ,but this latest installment has jumped another level to exceptional. Season 5 makes the Godfather seem like Bugsy Malone it really is phenomenal television.

    Narcos Mexico Season 3

    Finally got around to watching it. If you are fan of this series, then don't have much to complain with this season as well.
    Loved the subplot of the femicide.

    It's nice how they are always able to get in talented actors, who maybe big there in South America but largely unknown to the rest of the world. Though I can't say the same about Luisa Rubino who plays Andrea the Journalist. Stood out so distinctly as a terrible actress.

    Before I attempt to watch Dexter again has anyone seen the new season and shall I bother?

    The only hope I have is that it seems like a new setting and cast

    Yep, do it. The first few were a bit slow while we get to know the new characters and the setting, but it really went up a notch last week

    Absolute much watch for me, cheers.

    Where did you watch it BTW? download? Kodi/IPTV? as it doesnt seem to be out till the 18th?

    This is one series I only watched in bits, never watched full seasons of it. May give it a go one day (well a lot of days but you get what I mean ;) )

    The one on the bridge in particular was a great watch.

    Memorist (Memoriseuteu) - 9/10

    Another Korean series which blew my mind. If you like sex, buildings blowing up, romance..... This will not be for you.

    This is a very heavy mind**** of a drama. Don Baek is a detective who can read and scan people's memories just by touching them.

    Just watch it

    I watched this primarily because of the the two leads, David Thewlis and Olivia Coleman. They are both solid in their parts, but the series (4 episodes) doesn't do them justice. From the start it's deliberately 'quirky' in the way it's directed and shot, but by the end the 'quirky' becomes silly and obvious and just a distraction from a painfully flimsy plot.

    I agree ,dutiful performances from both Thewlis and Coleman ,but the email sequences were thrown in to disguise the limp writing it carried through the first ten mins.
