I thought the last episode of WOT was a bit of a disappointment, I have just been “advised” to watch The Call with Jake Glyenhall which is getting rave reviews at work and also The Guilty. I do know what you mean about The Witcher

We were just watching Army of One on Amazon Prime. It was better than I expected it to be.

Watched 4 eps of The Serpent last night. True story of a serial killer in the 70’s. Took a bit if getting into but worth it.

I started watching that last night. Not bad so far.

Watched "Small Island" on BritBox. Very enlightening about how things were just after WWII in the UK with the influx of Black UK Citizens from Jamaica.

This is best read . The original book is by Andrea Levy (2004) and is called Small Island. The book was adapted by Helen Edmundson to an acclaimed UK National Theatre play . I have not seen this play. I would very much like to.

It has come to be synonymous with the "Windrush Generation" . My husband's aunt married a "Windrush". Several of his first cousins are 2nd, 3rd and even now 4th generation. They have the most wonderful names too. Husband went to school with 2nd generation "Windrush" My Dad , being a Londoner, had two great "Windrush" pals before moving away from The Smoke & my first cousins grew up with rich multi-culture on their doorstep. All this back in a time when it was also "Irish Need Not Apply" also. There again we were all either from the slums in a way or housed via the councils. Proper lower working class . Dorset was somewhat behind in all of this. Hence why I & my family got so stuffed for having an Irish immigrant mother.

You liked the tv programme - read the book.

I just watched the last episode of Ozarks. Hopefully they will renew. I read somewhere that the Lake of the Ozarks has a shoreline longer than the California pacific coast.

It is supposed to be the final series. I hope it lives up to the previous series. So many seem to run out of good storylines. I was disappointed in the latest series of Yellowstone and Succession.

This is very much on my list. I thoroughly enjoyed the first three seasons so I am looking forward to getting stuck into this.

I would also agree with your second point, regarding Netflix originals. It's right up there. I think my favourite is still Dark, even though it's such a wildly different kind of story being told. Can't recommend it highly enough.

We finally finished The Witcher, and it was not bad, taken as a whole. In fact, the g/f wanted to watch it again from the beginning, and I have to say, once you understand some of the timelines/storylines, it's quite good. For reasons unknown, they chose to really jumble up the timeline and this made it very hard to follow, first time through. Seems to be a trend with some shows, to jump around the timeline to make it more 'sophisticated'. Anyway, I wouldn't have chosen to watch it but having done so, I can't say it was too bad!

Season 3 of Belgian/Dutch series Undercover. Netflix.
I wasn't sure how well it was going to work this time but no worries, it definitely does.
