    I watched the first one last night, and I thought Ant was ok, honestly, and I'm definitely an Ed China fan. The purists might not be too happy with what he did to a rare Escort Cossie though.

    Absolute shite.
    The premise in Episode 1 was quite engaging, but what could and should have developed into a thought-provoking sci-fi thriller lost the plot and has become a dreary, generic cop and serial killer programme.
    It has gratuitous throat slashings, stupidly moronic sub-plots, some of the most woeful script writing and wooden acting.
    I think you can tell from my rant that I fjuckin' resented every wasted minute of my life sticking with this as long as I did, while thinking to myself this really is absolute crap.

    This week’s episode of The Grand Tour is an absolute corker, and has a feature on rallying in the 1980s including interviews with Hannu Mikkola and Walter Röhrl.

    It’s rather wonderful.

    Definitely the best episode of this second season, which mostly hasn't been that great IMO.

    Finally got around to watching Fargo, been a bit apprehensive as I love the Coen brothers and Fargo is one of the favourite films, and I have to say it as absolutely brilliant. It captures the tone and the dark humour of the film perfectly whilst telling an original story.

    Billy Bob Thornton as Lorne Malvo might just be the best performance by anyone in any TV show ever. He's just that good!

    Just finished season 6 of Homeland.

    Good angle but feels a but House of Cards now. Bit disappointing.

    Season 7 starts on Channel 4 second week in February I think.

    I'm still enjoying it but it's lost that gut wrenching tension that the first 2, maybe 3, seasons had.

    I think it’s drifting a bit, trying to work out what it wants to be?

    The original premise with the Brody storyline for the first three seasons was brilliantly done, but they seem to still be searching for a decent hook to hang a storyline on.

    Series 7 starts next month, and they’re already planning Series 8, which is apparently going to be the final one.

    Watching the first season of Peaky Blinders.

    I didn’t expect to like it much but I’m really enjoying it.

    I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.

    I’m travelling back to the Fatherland today, when I get back to my gaff, first thing I’m going to do is bang on this weeks’ episode.

    I've just binged watched seasons 1-3 on Netflix and then caught the 4th on iplayer. Never really appealed to me but I have to say it's compulsive viewing. Some excellent acting performances in there with Cillian Murphy and Sam Neill. Tom Hardy and Adrien Brody turn up in the later seasons too.

    If you haven't seen it you must give it a go. "By order of the Peaky Fucking Blinders!!"

    Anyone watched Surgeons? It's a bit gory but bloody hell they perform some miracles.

    I walk around like everything is fine but deep down, in my shoe, my sock is sliding off.

    I’ve just caught up with the season finale of Star Trek: Discovery on Netflix.

    Wow. Almost had a proper nerdgasm at the end.

    It was great, apart from the clapping which makes me cringe. Next season can't come soon enough.

    Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

    I was late in to this too. No sure why I didn't go there sooner as it is my kind of thing. Really enjoyed it. Series 3 not so great for me but 1, 2 and 4 immense.

    Murphy and Anderson are great. Not sure about Hardy in it. I play the Solomons character when I'm playing shops with my daughter. Except I play it better!!

    I have enjoyed it immensely.

    The last episode is a particular highlight, featuring gratuitous violence, Klingons, and a reappearance of an “old friend” at the end.

    Smashing stuff.

    Absolutely.

    One thing that's really stood out for me is the serialised nature of the episodes and the season arc, something that Enterprise tried to do but never managed to pull off.
