Tried White Lines. Lasted 3 episodes. Not for me

Ozark is very good so far. Only 5 episodes in to Series 1 but looking forward to hammering it

Youngest recommended Line of Duty. Any good?

Line of Duty is one of the best British police dramas ever, imo, great acting performances.

Stick with Ozark, first season is a bit slow in the middle but then just gets better. Seriously fucked up characters.

Agree with you about White Lines - tosh.

Which one are you watching - the first two seasons which are on Netflix as Top Boy: Summerhouse or 'Top Boy' which is actually the third season?

Summerhouse is betterthan the Netflix series which drags in the middle a bit imo

Sky saying the licensing has been withdrawn but didn’t bother putting an expiry on it the fucking towering shitpipes

they do that as not to spoil the home video release dvd of season 10 , its being released in mid july. 

when they did it for season 9 i didnt know it was back until the three stooges remake (he plays a nun) were on film4 the other month (in the 'more like this' bit). 

skys funny with end dates, if it doesnt say when its going, itll either stay up or change to a end date about 7 days before it goes. so sometimes if you dont check it at the right time then  theres no way of knowing. 

You can get the entire dvds for about £45 for season 1to8 , about £12 for s9 and about £19 for s10.. 

about 74 pence an episode. 

again , they cant take it off you if you own it . 

you can always ebay it if its taking up space and has no rewatch value for you.

i taped the most recent season as its shown on tv weekly(so it stays on the box forever) except when corona dug in they seemed to speed show the last 3 eps one a day and i missed the seventh or eighth episode, so had to download it later... its still on the box and hasnt been auto deleted.. strange

having stuff on permanent rent that can just go is mental

its kinda no wonder folk pirate stuff, the illegal stuff works better than the bought stuff.

Anyone watching Once Upon A Time In Iraq on BBC2 now? Very interesting documentary about life in Iraq before and during the 2003 invasion.

All of the contributors are compelling but that US Marine Recon bloke Rudy Reyes, fucking hell he's seen too much him.

 

*Edit, here's his cameo from the documentary...

Rudy Reyes was in a brilliant series called Generation Kill about his platoon (not sure if that's the right word) being the spearhead of the invasion. I think it's made by the same folk as the Wire, they couldn't find anyone suitable to play Rudy so got him to play himself. It's a must see, brilliantly detailed and darkly humorous in places.

Also I did watch that documentary, fascinating to hear tales from people who were there. Also Rudy looks like his drank a bit in the 10 plus years since Generation Kill.

I only just read about him being in Generation Kill this morning, I watched and loved that series but not seen it for over 10 years and dont remember him being in it, definitely calls for a re watch. I remember an episode with some close combat in night vision which was brilliant.

I assumed it wouldn't be on until next week. 

Back to GK, I honestly can't find words to explain how good I think it was. Have you read the book it's based on? It's the accounts of the journalist sat in the front Hummer with the marines on the invasion. A brilliant read, I sometimes think if someone hasn't read the book but seen the programme they would think some of the scenarios are "Hollywood spin" but then you read the book and realise its all true, fuck ups n all.

Halfway through Season 2 of Lost, didn't make it this far when it was first on but they're shortish episodes and seem to tick by well enough at the minute.

I've not but I'm going to seek it out today, cheers! Just finished part 1 of a novelisation about WW3 based on how a computer model plotted it would pan out, so I could do with something light 🤣

I have managed to watch the first episode of Zero Zero Zero and it's fucking ace. Problem is the dodgy box is cutting out part of the English subtitles (when they aren't speaking English anyway).

I hear it will be screening on Sky Atlantic UK soon. Would appreciate a shout if and when anybody finds out when.

Compulsive viewing like Gomorrah.
