I will watch anything with Matt Berry in it - (Toast of London a particular favorite)

Watched the first episode and have a few giggles. Have been told by a number of folk that it only gets better as it goes on.


I can hear you Clem Fandango


One of the greatest running gags on TV - so good I got a shirt with it on.

Yeah, couldn’t get past the first couple of episodes of Danger Island. Guess they’ve just completely run out of ideas with the original characters.


The Noir series was dreadful, a mediocre stories with absolutely no funny jokes in it.
Danger Island I have up half way too.

I just remember thinking multiple times while watching "if you want to make a new TV series, just make a new one!".

Archer has gone well past its sell by date.

Finally saw the Deadwood movie. Very strange viewing experience, there’s only so many times you can say “geez he/she looks farking old” before it starts to distract from the narrative. Condensing what is clearly a season’s worth of material into a feature length film is also frustrating, I get that Milch was keen to wrap everything up but it felt like whiplash at times.

Still, McShane is awesome. Get to watching it cocksuckers

Already renewed. The ratings have been very good for a half hour adult cable comedy.

The movie itself has a pretty large cult following in the U.S.

Is the series just a continuation of the film (which I was a bit 50:50 on - some genuinely lol moments, but a bit too silly/contrived in a lot of places), or does it just build on the concept?

television remake but with different characters, basically the "American chapter" of the vampires (Taika's was the Wellington Chapter)..i.e they can do one British version too if they chose with British actors in UK..the irony is that the 3 leads are british...

I watched that last night, the conclusion of the fight had me pissing myself with laughter. The one after with the hat is very funny as well.

Just finished True Detective S3.

Great ending, very moving. A bit slow in the middle of the series, but ‎Mahershala Ali‎'s acting was phenomenal throughout.

It's glacial alright. I was steadily getting thru it then my cable box f**ked itself when I was halfway thru and I lost all the remaining episodes.

I've since got them all back but I simply haven't found the motivation to restart it yet. Even when I've got nothing else to watch.

I will get to it the rest eventually I expect. Hopefully. As long as it's superior to that shitpile that was S2 (didn't finish that. Gave up 3rd episode) there's a reason.

Thought it became a bit of a parody of itself by season 4, sadly. Soapier than a Babs Windsor bath-time tit wank.
Wait... I didn't think it had aired on English-speaking TV yet? So, assuming, er, your friend is watching a less-than-legit copy... has it got homemade subtitles, or are you chaps just fluent in Italian?

I'm about 4 episodes into S3 myself


Season 4 of Gomorrah is available with English Language subtitles if you have the Internet. I've finished it now - loved it.
looks like it's on Sky UK on June 18

Classic series. If you liked it you would probably also like Vice Principals.

Yeah, series 2 of Vice Principlas was excellent.

The creators of both have a new HBO project. Looks hilarious

Good Omens is fun. Production is intentionally whimsical and cartoony in places, but it works. Reminds me of the Sky Discworld productions.

CGI sucked but story was OK.. though the 4 horsemans being taken out by kids was idiotic..a few actors wasted like mckean, richardson, hamm ..was fun to find out death was voiced by Brian Cox (the actor) and Satan by Sherlock Cumberbatch ..really enjoyed the flashack parts espeically during the Noah era when one of the Unicorn makes a run for it and Crowley is like "Shem hey one of the unicorns is making a run for it, ..oh nevermind, you still have one" .. hillarious..

Good Omens was fantastic, although I can't wait to hear from the usual crowd about how the accents ruined it for them etc...
The biggest tragedy was having to omit the Other Four Bikers of the Apocalypse:
Grievous Bodily Harm
Cruelty to Animals
Really Cool People
Treading In Dogshit (formerly All Foreigners Especially The French, formerly Things Not Working Properly Even After You’ve Given Them A Good Thumping, never actually No Alcohol Lager, briefly Embarrassing Personal Problems, and finally People Covered in Fish

Personally it was always like that. Up and down. Some good episodes but a lot of really shitty ones. There were a few classics though, such as the pedophile one.

Saw a review that mentioned her "weapons-grade eye rolling", which was a nice way of describing some of what she brings to the table. Definitely a slightly different dynamic to the film within a female character, especially when played that well.
