Just watched tonight's Line of Duty, episode 5.

Bloody hell, they know how to end an episode with a cliff hanger.

I will wait to get all the series before watching. Can’t wait...it is always excellent!!

Last night I watched 3 eps of the current series of Syndicate, just shown on UK TV. We enjoyed the old series, there hasn’t been a new series for years. The general theme is a group of 5 or 6 people win the lottery and how it affects them.

I started out trying to wait but I literally couldn't.
I got as far as saving episode 3 for a week and then watched 3&4 together. To fill the gap between 4 & 5 I watched the latest season of Unforgotten. There's a state to get into.

I shall investigate that. Sounds like a change of pace.

Years ago...maybe 15...there was a series on UK TV called The Street. Each ep was about a household on the street. Similar sort of series to the Syndicate.

Is it any good? I came across mention of it somewhere a couple of weeks ago. For a Network production Blue Bloods is quite good - not seen it for a few years though as there are so many things better. Is Bosch a Network style show or something more realistic?
I personally find Bosch to be the best show of its kind in years. I love everything about it - storylines, acting, locations, photography, supporting characters, secondary / long story arcs, etc. It's so good I'm slow-rolling it because I can't bear to see it end! Is it 'network style'? I'd say no, it's not 'silly' like (eg) NCIS, CSI, etc. I can't believe you haven't seen it! Let's discuss it over on the 'other' thread

How I wish it was like the BE 10/15 years ago. Most of the threads were fun then, Now it seems to be mostly political, with several doom and gloom threads thrown in.

I know that feeling. But with 70 episodes it's a long way from finishing.
I never got around to watching The Wire which seems to be mentioned in the same breath as Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire (that's another I didn't get around to)

Have you tried Yellowstone? I watched all the series several weeks ago. Well worth watching IMO. Amazon Prime.

I tried Yellowstone but I found it to be rather 'soapy'. Great scenery, though! If you like Yellowstone, you should love Longmire, on Netflix.

I couldn’t get into it at first, same with Bosch. I gave up two or three times, but in the end I decided to stick with it and thoroughly enjoyed both.
