Life after life. Really disappointing, Just middle aged male fantasy shit. Ricky is good at table tennis, stands up to bad drivers without retribution, women fawn over him and follow him around even though he treats them like shit. 1/10

Rewatching Season 3 of Ozark ahead of the new season next week and it's a reminder of how good this show is in my opinion that I'm hooked on watching, I started off by watching the second to last episode with the intention of only watching  the last two as s catch up up ended up going back to first episode.

 

Lots of great characters  especially Ruth and the creepy Darlene.

 

9/10.

Excellent tv

I like Ricky Gervais but I think this is self indulgent shit. The story lines just meander nowhere, it’s a bit obsessed with sex particularly women either being overly promiscuous or being humiliated and that scene in episode 3 with the finance bloggers coming in to the office was just shoe horned in without any relevance to the plot and never referred to again. He is much funnier when he had Stephen Merchant as a writing partner.

I didn't realise this was back on next week.

 

Quality news.

Watching this at the moment.

 

I agree, it's self indulgent shit. I wish someone would put that laptop over his fucking head.

 

Let's face it, apart from the odd wee moment here & there, Gervais has been crap since The Office. A one trick pony if ever there was one.

The whole Wendy and her brother story line in season 3 is tough.

Well everyone is wrong about something. 

I’ve just watched another two episodes and it’s still very good. 
 

Kath - would you?

You could put a random episode from any of the three seasons of afterlife on and I'd struggle to tell you which season it's from, maybe apart from the last handful of episodes.

 

There's stand out moments in it but 3 seasons was probably one too many.

 

Did Roisin Conaty and Gervais have a falling out, she wasn't in the series and there were loads of pointless jokes about her in the show, seems like it was just a way to keep Jo Wilkinson's character involved.

Yes it was, and very well acted by the guy playing Ben as he descends into his illness. Hope he's back in Season 4.

I hope he's not to be honest, think it cheapens the story and where it went (though I wouldn't be surprised if you're right).

Minder- it's a sorrie lorries morrie. 

When we're pissed the Mrs won't watch anything like the wire or the sopranos. So I know every good and bad episode of minder. 8/10 and Phil Mitchell getting a slap from Terry

Watched a few first episodes of new things tonight.

 

The White Lotus- not sure why this is highly rated. It’s ok but not really funny.

 

For All Mankind- lots of cheesy speeches, with the US flag in the background. Then another cheesy bit of Texan slang, more patriotism while people stand about making their best proud face.

 

Hidden Assets- an ok drama involving detectives tackling organised crime. I’ll persist but I’m not overly impressed. 
 

Thanks for the heads up on Fargo, can’t wait for the new season.

Bang into Yellowjackets right now. Not even the appalling football scenes at the start could put me off.

Heard mixed reviews about that one.

Yellowstone 1883

 

Episode 5 is another fantastic watch. The scenery is gorgeous and the casting is excellent.

 

The lass they've got playing Elsa, the lead character, where did she come from? Love her narrations throughout, they definitely add an emotional heft to proceedings.

 

9/10

So it's Yellowstone in the early days? Or is it not connected to the Kevin Costner series?

It is, an early prequel set in 1883, but as a standalone I think it works really well anyway.

Halfway through season 3 of The Fall and Gillian Anderson is seriously, seriously boiling my piss.

 

Why does she insist in always speaking in a whisper?

 

Does she think it adds gravitas to her role as a fucking useless, incompetent, pompous as fuck copper?

 

I've always liked her but she is fucking shit in this. Totally dire acting performance.

Currently watching Season 3 of undercover on Netflix. A Dutch/belgian crime show. 

 

Not sure if anyone else has seen it but it's absolutely fantastic, great acting, great script, I honestly can't fault it in any way.

It's good,but as usual with Netflix it's a few episodes too long. The ending is a bit stupid though.

There is also a film on there called 'Ferry' about the main character.

    • Surprised at Nigeria's exit who I thought would go all the way to the final. Equally surprised that Comors made it to the last 16 at the expense of giants like Ghana, Algeria...My money now would be on I Coast/Cameroon. But wouldn't be shocked now if OLD Egypt pulls through. Anyways, the standard of African football remains dire.
    • One of the biggest reasons we are so widely hated by fans of clubs all over the land is this:   It is largely down to fact that we have 'fans' all over the rest of the country, and supporters of other clubs have to put up with our fans every day at school, work, in the ale house etc etc.   Other clubs (Man Utd aside) just don't have same presence all over and therefore are not universally hated....it must (and i know it does because i have heard people say it does) really nark people who have to listen to their local people, born/raised etc in their local town give it the big one about LFC to them....   People take it genuinely badly when what they see as 'glory hunters' basically betray their own towns/cities to 'support' us and compound it by giving it the big one.   I moved to London years ago and I remember a West Ham fan at our work saying to me how much he hated all the 'cockney reds' at work, and how as a result he developed a real hatred of LFC and i remember Tottenham and Arsenal fans saying same thing...and thing is these 'fans' they refer to are often the worst sort - clueless, sneering about the locals 'shit' teams and often so lacking in knowledge about game.   They then have a massive presence online too which then builds up the perception in other clubs fans minds all our fans are same dickheads/clueless pricks....and it builds hatred.   Imagine being a born and bred native of say Southampton for example and having to listen to another born and bred native of Southampton call Southampton FC shite and go on about how 'we' (Liverpool) are better than you/giving it the big one after beating you.....that happens in more or less every city and town across the land - and other clubs fans hate us as a result, because our club is a constant presence to them day in day out.   Man Utd are the only other club with same presence and they are hated a lot too.   Add that to a large dislike of us amongst people old enough to have lived through our dominance, and the generally quite high levels of anti scouse sentiment that exists and it explains the hate pretty well.
