Agreed Kelly Reilly is excellent in Yellowstone IMO.

It feels as though it is the Cowboy equivalent of Peaky Blinders.
I found it very similar to Longmire (on Netflix). I found Longmire to be much better, but then, I only saw season 1 of Yellowstone and found it too 'soapy' / implausible. But everyone tells me it gets much better after season 1, so if you like season 1, you should be happy!

I keep meaning to take a look at Longmire…it is on my list. I enjoyed Yellowstone, but IMO the latest season was disappointing compared to past seasons.

New season of Ozark was uploaded to Netflix last week, so far so good, I like it.

We are trying *very* hard not to binge the new episodes. We stopped after four on monday, and limited ourselves to one last night. Really enjoying it so far. There have been moments of one of us saying "Oh I bet Character X is going to do action Y" with the assumption that would not happen, then it does.

We tried episode 1 last night. It was so boring, so tedious, we gave up. I guess episode 1 was just the 'setup' for the story, but if that's their idea of storytelling I don't think it's for me!

You're lucky it's not on the tantric channel.

You were bored by that? Definitely not for you then.

We have just reached Series 11 of Vera. For some reason Britbox is missing series 7, possibly due to Acorn having it? So when and if it pops up we'll watch it. Really enjoying the show
Started Coupling last night, I've not seen it for a while and L hasn't seen it at all, both enjoyed it.

Peaky Blinders Series 6 is apparently starting next sunday on BBC 1. No news of when it'll be on Netflix, but April might be possible. I may see what digital necromancy is required to view it here before then.
