Missions (series 1) BBC iPlayer.

 

French sci fi about a trip to Mars. Ten episodes, all about 20/25 minutes each.

 

If you like space travel and exploration, you should like this. Got a bit too wacky the last two episodes, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Some euro eye candy. Funky euro soundtrack. Subtitles. 

 

7/10.

Not really a sci-fi fan but this sounds interesting.

 

Just put the first episode on, good start.

No doubt they all shag each other,walk around constantly smoking cigarettes while quoting Sartre before ultimately dying in an explosion after being asked to fix a simple fault on their space craft.

Oh fuck,I forgot the spoiler tags.

3 episodes into Gomorrah. Ace 

Ah, a fellow newcomer. 

I'm actually 3 seasons into it now, and it took a few goes for me to get here but it's well worth it. 

Bits of it annoy me, it's no Soprano's, but it's very watchable.

Night Sky. Seen a trailer for this a few weeksxago and it landed on Amazon last night. Watched four episodes back to back last night and it's decent if a little bit of a slow burn.

 

JK Simmons and Sissy Spacek play an old married couple who have a strange secret tunnel in their shed, I can't say too much more without spoilers but I'm interested to see where this goes.

 

7.5/10.

I think the wife has one of these. She spends more time in her shed than she does in the house. Fuck know what she does in there.

I thought season 3 was the best one so far.

I was made up with the winner of season 2. It's definitely more of a contest of mental resilience than skill.

The Terror: Infamy

 

Very different to the first season in setting, but covers some similar themes. It's always good to see genre material that's got a message behind it. Allegorical horror, a bit like It Follows, is far more interesting than straightforward slasher / ghost fodder.

I mentioned it a few pages back but I maintain that Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty is well worth a watch. 
 

Good fun, well acted, and hugely entertaining. I don’t think it claims to be a completely accurate retelling of events but the framework of the truth is there. 
 

Already been renewed for a second season so I’m not the only one that likes it. 

 

Needs more love on here though. 
 

8/10.

Russian Doll S2 - disappointing to say the least. Too clever for its own good and it lost all of the fun of the first season.

I'm about half way through this, but really struggling. The reviews for it were cracking too - or at least the 2 that popped up on my Google news thing. And the bird in the lead role is really getting on my tits and I just think she looks like she needs to take a break and get a fucking good clean.

Slow Horses - 7/10. Wouldn’t have looked at it except for Oldman, but it’s an easy and entertaining watch.

I thought it was cracking and looking forward to the next season, which is apparently already filmed. Oldman was great.

First 2 episodes of Barry season 3 are excellent. Such an underrated show NoHo Hank is excellent as is Henry winkler 

Another cracking show. It'll be sad when it's gone.

Superb so far.9/10

Spoke too soon. Started great and then they threw in some shite episodes. I think they are mixed up anyway so you see them randomly.

Yeah, they doubled up 3&4 and renewed them together, but I think 4 is the last. 

Oh right now I get you. I do think it’ll have run it’s course by then though.

I think I read they got the 2 season sign up as they presented hbo with a 2 season arc to close it out. And their only worry was once they got it and started writing it was feeling more than 2 seasons. But I've seen nothing else to suggest it's not closed at the end of season 4.

If you like this, and assuming you haven't already, give Arcane a try.

 

Especially if you enjoyed the episodes like Sonnie's edge.

    • A lot of people don’t understand football, so I’m sure it will.
    • Zahawi was making cash off oil too :     Tory minister Nadhim Zahawi pockets fortune from second job at oil company
    • Gerrard in this team would make Kevin De Bruyne look like a bum. He'd be the best player in the league by a mile.   Tactical discipline wouldn't be a problem for him because he wouldn't be playing for a defensively obsessed manager. I get where the whole "Gerrard isn't tactically disciplined" thing comes from, its because Rafa spoonfed that to people off the record for years.   Stevie was too swashbuckling to play centre mid in his system, but he'd be unreal playing in Klopp's.   Another factor in Gerrard's supposed tactical weakness was that he was often playing in shit teams where he needed to force the issue because nobody else would be capable of it. No point him sitting midfield and watching nothing happen in front of him. Of course he's not going to do that. Doesn't mean he has no tactical discipline, it just means he's a winner.   He played right back and was brilliant. He played holding midfielder and was brilliant. He played right midfield and was brilliant. He's since become a manager who builds his teams on being organised and defensively sound.   Gerrard in a midfield with Fabinho and either Thiago or Hendo would be un-fucking-believable.   And besides, there'd be nothing stopping us going with the same 4-2-3-1 he played in when he was just behind Torres.   If I could add any player from our history to this current team it's Gerrard. Even ahead of Suarez, and you know how much I love Suarez.
    • he newly appointed Chancellor and Warwickshire MP Nadhim Zahawi has created a sprawling £100 million property portfolio, along with his wife and their companies, the Mirror has reported. Mr Zahawi, who represents Stratford-upon-Avon, previously worked as Education Secretary, and before that rose to prominence as vaccine minister, helping to deliver the Government's rollout of the jab. © PA Nadhim Zahawi leaving 10 Downing Street following the resignation of Rishi Sunak yesterday His new role comes following the resignation of Rishi Sunak who quit as Chancellor having lost confidence in Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Mr Zahawi came to the UK aged nine after being born in Iraq to a Kurdish family, who fled the regime of Saddam Hussein.   Believed to be one of the richest politicians in the House of Commons, estimates of his net worth range from £30 million to £100 million. He has refused to confirm the amount, previously telling the Telegraph: "I've been very lucky in life." He helped found the polling company YouGov and along with his wife, owns a huge property empire, which includes a country home and stables, a £20 million London townhouse, a number of high-street properties and an industrial estate. A Mirror investigation previously found that more than half were purchased while Mr Zahawi was serving as a Government minister. Seven of the properties bought for over £10 million are mortgage-free, and two more were partially-funded by £10 million loans from Mr Zahawi's wife Lana. Read more: Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi: Everything you need to know about the Warwickshire MP The Zahawis personally own five residential properties, worth at least £17 million - three in London, one in Warwickshire (where his constituency is) and one in Dubai. The home near Warwick, a country house with stables, was bought for £875,000 in 2011. One of Mr Zahawi's firms purchased the £3.5 million Chunnel industrial estate in Ashford Kent, by the Eurotunnel train station, and his wife Lana Zahawi now owns two superstores, including a £6.3 million plot home to a giant Co-op and car park in St Neots, Cambridgeshire. Another company controlled by Mr Zahawi owns £18 million worth of land containing an Asda megastore in Brierley Hill, West Midlands. Since it was bought four years ago, its value has increased by £1.25 million. There is no suggestion that he has breached the Ministerial Code. In 2013 it was reported that Mr Zahawi had claimed the livery's £5822.27 heating bill on expenses, which he said he had done by mistake and repaid. At the time he posted a statement on his website saying: " Since last week's coverage of my energy bills I have been looking into them further and can confirm that all claims for heating fuel relate purely to my second home. " However I have made a mistake with my electricity claims. On investigation I have discovered that the electricity supply for a mobile home located in the stable yard and for the stables themselves was linked to my house. " Whilst a meter was installed in the stable yard I have only been receiving one bill, it was wrong to assume I was receiving two and to have not checked this sooner. I am mortified by this mistake and apologise unreservedly for it. " I will obviously be paying back any money that was wrongly claimed immediately and have already contacted IPSA [Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority] regarding the correct procedure."
