New Season of American Horror Story "Roanoke"
Highly anticipated (at least by me!)
Just watching episode 1 and looks promising. Usual strong acting cast

New series called Paranoid on ITV, looks promising.
Watched the first episode of Lethal Weapon, now a TV series, also looks as though it could be good.

Somebody needs to put more hours in the day. I'm never going to catch up if they keep producing new stuff and new seasons of things that were good.

Mind you, The Fall needs to improve on that second series.

As a fan of The Sopranos and Breaking Bad I am duty bound to like The Wire but I've never seen as much as a clip.

Boardwalk Empire awaits too. One day I must continue with The Shield.

Got around to something in my backlog last night. Watched the first part of London Spy. Reminded me a little of a BBC mini series called Dead Head.

Episode 2 shortly.

Episodes 2 and 3 of London Spy under my belt tonight.

Particularly enjoyable is watching each episode and then reading the Guardian recap. It sort of brings things together a bit for anything you might have missed.

Conspiracies abound.

I hate the bloody tabloids- just wrecked my enjoyment of GBBO by saying who got star baker and who got kicked off in the quarter finals. I'm not happy.

I like greyhound racing on Sky Sports but even that's under attack these days. Its political correctness gone mad. I heard that the BBC are even scaling back their Christmas programming in case it upsets the migrants.

Just started watching 'Deep Water', Australian crime drama mini-series about a serial killer on the Bondi Beach area, looks promising.

Are you implying that the country's gone to the dogs?

Its not just the country, the world has gone mad. You can't even pet your dog in public in case it offends Donald Trump supporters.
