Just finished watching season 2 if that.... a lot of critics panned it, I still enjoyed it it though. I dont tend to pay a lot of attention to professional critics, their reviews never seem to hold any water. Id rather listen to what a friend had to say about it....or 'normal' people's reviews.

I've just finished it too. I enjoyed it in spite of getting that ominous feeling that something awful was going to happen, which of course it did. What awful people they were. The child was the only decent one among them all.

Yes there was a very ominous feeling of something bad looming towards the end.

In the first series I really felt for her......especially when she attempted suicide, her life was in ruins, but she managed to turn it around and move on. However in the second series she let the hatred consume her and she was just as bad as him! The child was the only decent one....no wonder he hoofed it out of there!

Another Icelandic murder series. The Lava Field from 2014. As good as the other stuff and on Netflix.

Thank you I will definitely give it a try...I rather like the brooding Icelandic ones...

I have just watched, and thoroughly enjoyed, "What We Did On Our Holidays" on Netflix, which is a 2014 film, which I hadn't heard of. It has Billy Connoly and David Tennant and a host of other favorites and is Great British comedy at its most wry and gentle best. I normally steer clear of comedies with children but this one was funny, a good family film with no bad language or sex and the sort of scenery that makes me wonder why the hell I'm living in chilly Canada and not the warmer Highlands. Enjoy

Yes, I noticed that was on Netflix and I remember it was really good. Very British and very classy. I don't know how they achieved that without Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith etc

I just finished watching Country Council. It shows what council does in areas such as Argyle, Bute, Dunoon ie remote areas in Scotland. Loved the landscape..

I'm watching "The Sinner"...just done part 4 of 8.

Looking for a reason for odd behaviour but most of the cast are a little odd anyway.

Sinner completed.

Good to see Peaky Blinders return. Watched S4 ep1 on iPlayer tonight and then followed with first part of documentary Drugsland featuring Bristol.
