I enjoyed Dad Boot mostly, the whole series probably a 7/10.

Where it suffered I think was in the whole Resistance storyline which they clagged on, which ultimately detracted from the gloom, claustrophobia and tension onboard the U boat. Still, a worthy effort.

 

I'd agree with your assessment there CD. I agree that the resistance part was pretty poor and detracted from the story. I thought there was one standout episode from 8 while the rest were ok but nothing special.

Just to add that I've started a series on Netflix called Unauthorised Living,its Spanish and looks pretty promising from the one episode I've watched. Also Le Burea season 4 is out and about but no English translations that I can find just yet.

Manifest

 

Flight M370 takes off on a domestic flight but when it touches down,  5 and a half years have gone by. 

Intriguing, the pilot episode was pretty good even if it did go all Field Of Dreams and the acting was shit. 

 

Worth a few more episodes. 

Sounds intriguing. My problem with stuff like this is it needs a tight story arc, so if it's not a mini series I tend not to bother for fear it'll turn into Lost and disappear up its own arse.

 

The modern US network system driven by ratings doesn't tend to work well for sci-fi.

Deutschland 86 is coming soon on More4/Walter Presents. The 83 one was good, so I'll deffo give this a watch. 

I've seen it. The last episode is actually a pretty good documentary that sort of explains the whole series.

Sounds like that Stephen King mini series,The Langoliers,I think it was called.

Really can't overstate how boss Season 2 of Daredevil is, it's some of the best telly I've ever seen. The Punisher. Electra, The Hand, Yakuzza, aspects of The Wire all thrown in there for good measure. Brilliant stuff.

Season 2 was way too brutal for me, Season 3 is a whole load better. Easily the best of all the Marvel series's produced so far.

The Grand Tour.

Shit, they should pack it in.

I was a big fan of old Top Gear for all its nonsense. Even the 1st series or 2 of this was OK. Now it is dogshit.

amazon pay them something like $250m to make it for 3 or 4 years didn't they? With that type of money being thrown around, I would guess they'll keep going. I agree it's fucking shite though - I can't quite get how they make it so bad considering it's just top gear. while i didn't love that show, it was pretty watchable. I find grand tour not so and gave up half wat thrugh season 2 and what i did watch was mostly just as background noise as it was getting on my tits.

i am up to date on it. it's kinda ok. i am a bit short of things to watch at the moment, so I have stuck with it, but I don't think I would otherwise. i thought it had loads of potential at the start.

Started Nightflyers on Netflix last night.

 

First episode shows promise, it seems like a mix of Event Horizon and Solaris. Nothing groundbreaking, but not all TV needs to be, I like something that just uses genre tropes and lets them play out with the odd twist.

The rip off, of Jesus and the Mary Chain, at the end, was a musical travesty of biblical proportions. 

 

 

She likes watching the show. I like watching Hermione.

They've all been cancelled except Punisher which will probably follow.

Season two of Daredevil was by far the best of all the Marvel shows. Season three was pretty boring a lot of the time and spent much too long on his angst. By that point I was long past interested in him sitting there for half the episodes having yet another existential crisis.

The Crown. 

 

3 episodes. I'm by no means a royalist, but this is actually very good. 

 

I'd give it 8 out of 10, but I feel obliged to mark it down to 6 as it's made me develop a strange crush on Princess Margaret. Thankfully, not the actual one but her portatal in this.

Halfway through the new Das Boot and its going rapidly downhill. Sadly not a patch on the original and I'm struggling to bother watching the second half.

 

Unhistorical uboat tactics I can abide, it is a drama afterall and the original was guilty of that too but a token American storyline and a laughable onboard mutiny type story have frankly just got on my moobs. Its ignored everything that made the original brilliant.

 

5/10 so far, but I think its going to get shitter.

 

Edit: Yes. The fucking lesbian scene has just made it 4\10 (unless you are Bill Hicks, in which case 10\10 and more of the same please).

Good assessment. Very disappointing and why I will watch the original again very soon.

Is El Chapo worth watching?

 

It's largely passed me by, but I saw the picture of him giving his missus the thumbs up in court, and it's tipping me towards watching it.

Its ok. Don't expect Narcos but its watchable. I had the dubbed version because my stupid Netflix was set to default to English audio.
