  3. Absolutely love Brooklyn 99, well written and great characters, although I could do with a lot less Scully and Hitchcock.
  4. Godless is good!

    The final showdown is epic af, and the last 5 min made me lose it and rewatch them 3 times.

  5. The first episode was so boring!
    I’ll watch the rest but I’m not exactly excited to...
  6. It is a slow one indeed, but I wasn't bored for a second.

    I really hope they don't try to stretch it with a second season.
  7. "Don't worry Tubbs, they won't get far!"

    Anyone else looking forward to The League Of Gentlemen returning next week?
    I can't wait, I'm nearing the end of Series 2 in a hopeful full rewatch before it's back. I think The Christmas Special is my favourite.
  8. I started watch a Belgian TV show on Netflix called Hotel Beau Sejour. It's about a teenage girl who wakes up in a hotel with a bloody head. She goes to the bathroom and sees her own dead body in the bath.

    She realizes that 5 people can still see and talk to her, her father, stepsister, best friend, local crooked policeman and the policeman's son. She tries to find out who killed her and why. I'm 5 episodes in and it's very watchable. Also learning that Flemish people constantly use French and English words.
  9. It is one of the better Flemish tv shows of the past couple of years. The performances of the actors are fantastic and the general vibe of it all is excellent. I especially loved up-and-comer Lynn Van Royen and the established Inge Paulussen's performances, who play the dead girl and her mother respectively.

    And yes, we do use French words often, because it's intwined in all of our dialects (there are a lot here) and English I think just as much as other European countries.
  10. There‘s a French series on Netflix called ‚The Frozen Dead‘ which I can really recommend. It’s a serial killer show with a beautiful snowy scenery.
  11. I hadn't watched it in years, but I recently watched Home and Away. They do know that half of the reason to watch was for the opening credits?

    Give me back my small town Australian fantasy.
  12. So I’ve been recently introduced to Grimm by the husband and while the show is really rather good, the discovery of Nick Burkhardt has brought new purpose to my tv and my life!

  13. Anyone watching Collateral on the BBC2?
    It’s stunning

  15. Watching it right now... so spellbinding. It doesn’t feel like it’s had enough fan fair.
  16. Agreed. I'm surprised it's on BBC2 rather than 1 (and even how much difference that still makes in this day and age).

    Only bad thing about it for me is Billie Piper. She's 'acting' so hard she looks like she might burst a blood vessel.

  17. I felt the same when I started watching it again recently. No proper title sequence and a distinct lack of foster kids makes it a shadow of its former self. I watched one episode recently which was really old-school with Alf Stewart heading up some sort of Surf Club festival but then it descended into dead bodies and wannabe gangsters for the second half of the show. It's a shame.
  18. So weird I was literally about to post about watching this. I'm nearing the end of Season 2 and I'm surprised at how decent the show actually is. Very underrated.

  19. Agreed! I’m up to the end of season 4 and it really keeps getting better. I love how strong the cast is and I how I care about (nearly) all of them

    Us Kylie fans really do have excellent taste!
