I know series 1-4 are, but is the new series going to be shown right away, or do we have to wait?

Season 4 is the new one. Since the trailer is already on Prime I'd assume so.

You could compromise for The Outlaws. It looks like iPlayer makes two episodes available each week.
Monday night BBC just showed ep 2, while iPlayer now has 4.

It's in 6 parts so you could binge watch four episodes over the weekend and then have the last two parts on Monday.

But nobody takes any notice of me anyway.

I don’t use iPlayer…but I have few other options to view UK TV program. I will take a look.

As it happens, I do.

Not terribly sure why, mind

I'm buffering this one, will stack up all six then binge in a week or so.

We're really enjoying The Outlaws, I second Bristol's recommendation.

Hooray.

BBC1 is on episode 3 while iPlayer is on 5.
It should be 6 parts and IMDB shows 6 too...but some of the actors are listed as being in 7. Maybe they're already started a new series.

Stephen Merchant is just great, a comic genius and a brilliant comedy actor. Must be good for you to see bits of Bristol and hear those accents on the telly, eh?

That's part of the fun but what drew me to start watching was reading about it ahead of the first episode and the fact that Christopher Walken had a part. Not for who he is so much as the idea that a major American actor would take on such a role.

I started on this last night, and after finishing episode one I thought "what's all the fuss about?".

Nothing, nada. Went off to play some music.

I've just given episode two a run out, and now my sides are slightly aching from laughter. So was there nothing "in" episode one or was I maybe just unreceptive?

Some awfully good stuff in there, Stephen Merchant is as funny as ever, but Darren Boyd merits a special mention - not seen much of him since Killing Eve?

Maybe the build up?

I have no recollection of him in that. I looked at photos of the character in situ but no memory at all.

It's funny you mention it t hough because those two shows I would bracket together.

I swear that I recognise Boyd from somewhere else as well, but I can't find it.

Which is totally stupid, given the internet.

So I'll just go for episode three of Outlaws and a vaguely early night.

Late edit: Just done with episode three, bloody brilliant.

What VPN is everybody using for iPlayer? My last subscription ran out as I haven't watched it for about a year.

I'm still using the free hoxx add-on.
It might need half a dozen refreshes to succeed but usually does the trick.
