Ploughing through 'Unforgotten' on Netflix. Currently on season 3. Good stuff.

Indeed. One of very few things I've happily sat through for a second time.

Just finished season 4. Goodness. A number of superlatives in Unforgotten's general direction. Haven't been captivated like that in a long time.

I note season 5 has already been announced, I do wonder with both excitement and trepidation where it goes from here.

Accepting the good recommendations on here, I watched the first two episodes of "Unforgotten", last night. it does tend to deviate in a lot of directions, but no doubt it will all unfold as it goes on. I'll persevere.. :)

It does, Tango; thus throwing-up several plausible scenarios and a good few curved balls of course. Do stick with it, Fella. It's very good.

On search for another series to binge and started watching Hinterland on Netflix last night. An enjoyable first episode, but one wonders whether I should start branching out from brooding police investigation dramas.

Prime has some decent stuff.. The Boys in particular is gory, brutal fun and the 1st season especially was just brilliant

I've just stared watching something called Home Game on Netflix. A docu-series exploring unique sports, such as The Highland Games and Calcio Storico which is played exclusively in Florence. A tournament once a year. My word.. Wouldn't fancy being caught up in a game of that

We're watching something called McMafia. Nothing to do with the Ice Cream Wars, not yet anyway, but all to do with a previously honourable Russian banker from a dishonourable family whose business hits the skids and is offered a way out. I've just simplified it enormously but haven't given owt away.

Commands the attention to keep up, but well worth the investment.

Just finished the Danish version of The Killing. Quite enjoyed it, though the first season was 20 episodes 😳

I started that one, but I do tend to do other things at the same time as watching the box. So had the first 3 episodes on permanent rewind as I kept missing subtitled dialogue...

I tend to do that too :)

I'm so busy at work at the moment that I'm having to force myself to not work some evenings to get a break. Having to watch subtitles I've found is a good way to not distract myself with work.

Watched 'Believe Me: The Abduction of Lisa McVey' last night.

A quite incredible, often disturbing (true) story about a girl with an extraordinary strength of character and presence of mind.

There are some horrible bastards about.

It's on Netflix - definitely worth your while watching.

I see there is a new Jimmy McGovern three-parter tonight for those in need of a pick me up.

Don't know if any of you caught 'Time', by the way, but certainly worth your while watching the first ep on catch up if not.

Some superb acting from both Stephen Graham (of course) and Sean Bean, whose characters are both heading towards dark places.

Very intense and, though I've never set foot inside a prison I can imagine it to be a lot like this.
