    One tv show I am finding excellent is The Virtues. Shane Medows plus Stephen Graham, perfect recipe. May be it is mentioned elsewhere on here. Real, gritty British drama. Highly recommended.
    Tis indeed very good.

    Caught up with "The Planets" - presented Brian Whatsisname (man he is a weird looking chap).
    I didn't expect much, but was totally engaged and learned a lot.
    BBC I player for those that missed it.

    It’s largely been based around people’s accounts as documented in the book ‘Voices of Chernobyl’.

    Just watched the final episode of 'The Virtues' on channel 4. Shane Meadows knows how to create a captivating image and Steven Graham gives those images a voice. This series was possibly my favourite piece of Meadows and Graham's powerful portrayal of the characters, good and bad troubled or not The endearing and repulsive people of modern UK. If you have not seen it then give it a try on Channel 4 catch up, nothing to lose plenty to gain.

    I binged on the new series of Black Mirror last night.

    It’s only three episodes, but each one is excellent.

    Killing Eve, 2nd Series

    Hmmm - really not sure why it deserved a 2nd series after the crap ending to the first series.
    Now I've watched the 2nd series I've realised that the only reason it got a 2nd series was because that Jodie Comer has the most expressive come-to-bed- eyes ever.

    The new new Topgear was actually enjoyable light entertainment for a Sunday night. First time since Clarkson, May and Hammond left that I have put it on series link and will watch it again next week.

    Top Gear always has been, and always will be, shit.

    I hate the show with all my heart. And the fact those three tossers died when they went to Amazon just shows what ***** they really are.

    With time being spent of the house renovation project, I missed in early June the broadcast of the latest in the 7-Up documentary that has followed 14 7-year old children from 1964, and which is updated at 7-year intervals.
    The latest in the series, 63-up, was aired during the first week of June.
    Hopefully it will be available on ITV Hub (which is a bloody awful "user experience", compared to the likes of BBC IPlayer and Channel 4's catch up).
    It is a unique long-term social documentary and if you haven't seen the early programmes it is well worth the effort of tracking them down.
    Far more rewarding viewing experience than sitting through downloads of the Game Of Thrones!
    And to any who have seen the programmes, the lad called Tony and his desire at 7 "I'm gonna be a jockey" is still going strong.

    I’ve just finished watching Season 2 and really enjoyed it..........but, the final episode was such a disappointment.

    I wanted it to build into a massive dramatic finale with a shock and a real twist yet it was such a dull end. Gutted.

    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'.

    That opinion is popular with me. Shit.

    Had the misfortune to be in a hotel bar with the original 3 once, what a bunch of morons.

    Oh FFS.

    While the Mrs has been away I have been binging on the box set of Peaky Blinders that is currently available on IPlayer.
    Mixed feelings about this: was Small Heath really run by Gypsy gangsters?
    Did they really have running gun battles with New York Black Hand gangs with sub-machine guns, machine guns and the like blazing away like it was the front line on the Somme?
    Did everyone chain-smoke, and never stop drinking whisky, gin and snorting cocaine, and yet still retain the mental and physical attributes to fight and win every fight there was going?
    It was interesting at the start, but by the middle of series 3 I was thinking "this is shite".
    So is there any sort of parallel with real life in this programme?

    EDIT: It seems there were parallels, and 1919 - 1928 was a hedonistic and lawless time!
    In that case, this box set is brilliant!
