Glad you figured out the algorithm. We are watching the final episode tonight, and I can't wait to see who the killer is. Normally I can sniff them out beforehand but I am totally stumped on this show.

I thought this show was ok. It's very well reviewed but I found Maid a bit predictable and cheesy.

A show that I thought was better that I watched in the same was "Unbelievable" on Netflix. Some police set out to catch a serial rapist with some much stronger messages in the show.

The new season of YOU was also very good!

Foundation is getting a little more brisk now, and thus is even better than previously.
I started on "Invasion". A lot of character building in the first three episodes, and not too much information as to what exactly is going on, bar knowing that there are alien type things being a bit naughty. I'm hoping that at least one character isn't done and dusted as early as it seems.
I have introduced my son to The Muppet Show. He was aware of The Muppets from the various movies, but had not seen the original series. We're both enjoying it. I have vague memories of certain bits here and there from my childhood, and it's amusing to watch it as an adult, and get some of the jokes that were clearly for the parents.

Just started watching 'Smother' on CBC Gem. A murder mystery with a confusing family tree set on the west coast of Ireland. Interesting after 1 episode.

Also finished watching The Beast Must Die on Acorn with some thoroughly cretinous characters and disfunctional families.

The Outlaws.
Seven strangers from different walks of life forced together to complete a community payback sentence in Bristol.
It's on BBC/iPlayer.
Hilarious and thrilling.

Britbox has a coming soon thing for a new series of Shetland, so that'll get a watch when it arrives.
Probably mentioned it before, but season three of Narcos: Mexico will be appearing soon too. It was already getting a bit crazy, but it's looking serious nuts now!
Lining up a few Taskmaster series 12 episodes to binge too.

Apologies if I have previously mentioned this,,…(sleep deprivation with an almost 4 month old going through sleep regression and all that jazz)

‘Impeachment: American Crime Story’ about Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.

Anyone else watching this?

I have been recording it. I like to wait until a series has finished, then binge watch.

I binged the first volume of "Love Death + Robots" on Netflix. Interesting concept and stories. I really did enjoy the one with the three robots and the cat

The Mrs got into "Yellowstone" on Prime video & it sucked me in too. Season 4 drops on Sunday. DId Kevin Costner survive being shot? We'll find out.

The other thing I've started a rewatch on is "ER" season 1. It still stands up as very well made television today.

I really enjoyed Yellowstone. Not sure how to watch the new series as it’s on Paramount. Please don’t post spoilers,
