Tin Star S2
S1 pushed plausibility but was a real good watch. S2 boots plausibility in the baws and laughs at it squirms doubled over on the ground. The plot doesn’t make sense, characters act inexplicably, stuff happens that is just whyyyyy?!?!? Then it just ends without much of an ending.

Kind of still an enjoyable watch though.

When the gf pointed out that Tim Roth walks like Kevin(and Perry) well.... that cant be unseen.

Good Omens (Amazon Prime)

Good Omens is, I hope people who've read it will agree, extremely English. When making this series, they picked an absolutely superb pair of British actors to play the leads... but the role of the narrator, and, err, God, has gone to an American. It just feels *wrong*, having the names of little English villages and the like read out in an American accent. She does a perfectly serviceable job, don't get me wrong; it's not like the American tourists that pronounce local popular tourist spot Ambleside as "Am-blee-sigh-dee". It's a minor gripe, I know, but this is one of my very favourite books, and getting the tone right was always going to be tricky. "Agnes Nutter" in an American accent just doesn't work.

Pretty much everything else from the first episode was quite good. I still think I would have preferred Tennant and Sheen in opposite roles, but I can't really fault the casting otherwise. There's not a huge amount of showy stuff in the first episode, but what's there is good. It's not a visual spectacle like American Gods.

Massive brownie points for having Nicholas Parsons cameo as the voice of Hell. Sorta. Just A Minute makes so much more sense now.

What We Do In The Shadows

So far its OK. I was expecting it to be a bit funnier but it is no way bad. The actors are all great but the TV show stretches the comedy a little thin. Could of worked better as a sequel film.

Finally got the chance to start this. This may be my first proper binge show.

Totally, and the courtroom presentation with the stand and tiles was the clearest explanation I've seen of the accident, period.

The general population probably now have a better understanding of how a RBMK reactor works than they do a kettle.

Apparently the show is really popular in Russia as well, which has caused a bit of upset about how badly it was all handled by the Soviets. Luckily Russian tv is making their own version were the explosion was caused by a CIA agent, because that's what really happened...

A Handmaids Tale S1
From cursory glances I thought this was a period drama and never gave it a second look but it’s certainlu it’s own thing and really bloody good. There’s some might great leaps of logic at times but that lass that plays June is a fantastic actor that pulls you back in. Hammered S1 in a few days and onto 2 now.

Where are you watching it? We enjoyed (if that's the right word) S1 but completely missed S2 when it was broadcast and never seen it.

As a respite palate cleanser we started watching the first 2 eps of Its Bruno it Netflix and it’s kind of great. It’s about a guy that loves his dog. The episodes are 15mins long which is perfect for what it is. It’s a nice little funny shot glass.

Fair enough, just wondered if it had snuck onto Netflix and I'd not noticed.

Its 12quid for the series on Youtube and Googleplay which isnt too bad for 12 hours of good telly. :-k You could also do a free trial of Hulu though you'd need to VPN it.
