IMO, it is one of the most underrated series of all time. I've been trying to download it but cannot find any sources anywhere.
IMDB lists it as Afterlife which could be important in finding it.
There's some on dailymotion but I don't know how much and sometimes it's back to front, which is okay unless there's something important to read

Thank you muchly.

I have both seasons downloaded now. 14 episodes to be exact, that should keep me busy for a week.

I finished Episode 5 yesterday of Gangs of London.

One of the main characters played one of the brothers in Peaky Blinders (Joe Cole)

finished all the eps last night. Had to cover my eyes in places. I thoroughly enjoyed it, hope they make a 2nd series.

I remember watching this with the family when growing up. Seems as though BritBox does not have all 7 series of it though
Ricky Gervais' Extras was very good. I'm not sure if you can find it on one of the platforms here.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extras_(TV_series)

Also check out Life's Too Short which is on HBO.

More recently- and also on HBO Stephen Marchant did Hello Ladies which is hilarious too:

Thanks! I have seen the David Bowie scene from Extras, which was very funny.

Anyone remember Ashes to Ashes or Life on Mars? I think I'm going to re watch them both.

Does anyone remember this "what names?" aspect of Green Acres - assuming you remember the show of course.

Watched The Split Series 2, which was recently screened on UK TV. A legal drama, mother and 2 daughters are legal eagles, 3rd daughter doesn’t quite fit into this mould. I have now started to watch Series 1, as I enjoyed the current series.

I'm watching 'Top Boy' on Netflix right now. This is the 1st time I can remember ever having to turn on subtitles for a British show. So much London slang mixed with Jamaican Patois. It's a good show though.

There was a conversation about that show late late last year (I think) You have to check which season you watch first (They are labelled differently on Netflix) because I watched the third series not realizing there is season 1+2.
