Started watching ‘Road to Partition’ on BBC iPlayer - 2 part documentary series about the Irish War of Independence and partition of Northern Ireland

Also been watching season 6 of ‘Call the Midwife’ - been a little more triggering this season due to being 34 weeks pregnant

Season 2 of ‘This Time with Alan Partridge’

and Season 6 of ‘Inside No.9’ - I love anything Shearsmith and Pemberton write but nothing will ever top ‘The League of Gentlemen’

and of course ‘The Handmaids Tale’ - season 4 - love to know how they will link what’s happens to ‘The Testaments’ book

Just a slight bit of binge watching going on:

Swedish Dicks season 1- So far rather amusing, and love the bit part from Keanu Reeves

Detectorists series 1 and 2 - I had tried the first couple of minutes a long time ago and didn't like it. Started a proper watch over the weekend and really got into it. Lovely little show. just have series three left

Harlot's season 3 - I only watched the first two, left L to watch most of the rest. Seemed to be on par with previous seasons.

Watched Oslo last night. I thought it was a fairly decent film.

Finished season one of Swedish Dicks. Really enjoying this show, very much my sense of humour level

Also finished series three of Detectorists. So glad I gave the show another try, and it's a perfect ending, though it's rumoured there could be a fourth series. maybe.

Just finished 2nd episode of ‘Time’ with Sean Bean and Stephen Graham - very gripping drama set in a men’s prison. One more episode to go!

'DNA' on CBC Gem is a good slow burn police mystery. From Denmark with occasional english but with subtitles.

Senior Moment.

Not a series that I know of, it's just me being me.

I was convinced that someone on this thread had mentioned Colony as a worthwhile watch.

For budding dystopians and Josh Holloway fans it really is.

A bit of binging going on here: Finished off Line Of Duty series 6. Very good, if a little bit of an underwhelming end, but could leave things open for more maybeRe-watched Man down, and Man Like Mobeen (apparently there will be a fourth series)

Watched "Katla" (icelandic, so watched with subtitles), which is rather good icelandic mystery show. Highly recommend it

We are still going through At Touch Of Frost.

BritBox has added all seasons of Bergerac. I recall watching some episodes many years ago, so it's to watch it all again, plus it's the first time round for my girlfriend. It's quite interesting seeing who is in it vs who pops up in Midsomer Murders

Finished Loki. I have to say the quality of these Disney Plus shows is very, very good, and Loki did not disappoint.

Clarkson’s Farm on Amazon Prime is really really good. Worth a watch if you subscribe to Prime.

Dr. Death. Takes "malignant narcissist" in a whole different direction than Donald Trump.

The series is too reliant on jumping around the story's timeline in order to build tension in the early episodes, and doubt about the outcome in the later ones.

But the character studies, from major to minor, are consistently interesting (and well-acted), including those that go against what one might initially expect, and/or identify with, under the circumstances.

And the backstory of a systemic, institutional failure, in several dimensions, is a compelling character study of a different kind.

8.5 / 10

I am rather living Kevin Can F*** Himself with Annie Murphy (from Schitts Creek) from AMC. It's almost like 2 shows in one, it's an interesting concept and take. Hard to explain easier to show, but I like it, too bad there are only I think 8 episodes. (I really dislike the trend of these 8-10 episode seasons for shows, at least some still have 20-22 episodes a season.)
