    Time.

    Watched all 3 episodes of it today whilst working from home. Highly recommended. Damn depressing, but a fantastic watch. Both Stephen Graham and Sean Bean are fantastic, as usual.

    8/10

    Yes, it was a brilliant 3-part programme albeit very harrowing at times.

    Don't know where to begin explaining it but it's very good if you like fantasy you'll like this.

    9/10

    Watched it today, it's good stuff though it does throw in a lot of prison cliches. Sean Bean is better than I've ever seen him, and the rest of the cast is brilliant too.

    Fargo - S4 - 5/10

    Huge disappointment, story all over the place, it just became a chore watching it. Easily the worst of the 4 seasons.

    Glad you enjoyed it, I loved it and yeah, its one of those shows you hate the fact you've already seen it :( I so wish I was just starting watching S1 now and binge watching the lot. It would be so more enjoyable not waiting for each season.

    Said many a time I'm surprised more folk don't seem to have bothered watching this? Its up there with The Sopranos and The Wire imo.

    I watched the first series then binned it. Annoying wife with annoying voice, annoying kids, annoying brothers, annoying clients and repititious plots made me call it a day.

    The Nevers

    Joss Whedon series, kind of a cross between His Dark Materials and Dr. Who, only 6 episodes. Nonsense from start to finish, no idea what it's about but plenty of action, special effects and general silliness. Ideally I'd like someone to explain what it is I've watched. :hmmm

    Very good series, although it took me nearly to the end to accept Bean as a wimpy English teacher.

    That's what I was impressed by though, he convinced me from the start, credit to him.

    That's a shame because it got so much better as the series went on. I'd recommend it above The Sopranos..

    Just finished watching Liverpool Narcos.

    Was an interesting watch. The evolution of the type of drugs that became popular and money spinners. Never realised how big Ecstasy was at the time.

    Time.
    An outstanding drama with some great performances which is unusual from The BBC, the only other decent dramas they do is Luther, Peaky Blinders and Line Of Duty. 9/10.

    Funnily enough I've just d/loaded that, I've seen it before but it's next on my list when I've watched the last episode of Bloodlands on the iplayer.

    Yeah that's a good shout but there aren't many more shows on The BBC worth watching.
