Watches the 1st episode of new thriller Guerilla last night. Takes place in the 70s. Looks like could be a good one.

Having now watched most of the second series of "The Expanse" (finale is tomorrow night) and devoured the 5 book (so far) series on which it's based, I have to recommend this once again. It's rare for SciFi to be done so well and interestingly with an expansive universe, realistic physics and generally high production values and acting.

Season 1 is on Crave TV & both season 1 & 2 are on iTunes if you want to pay for them (or fmovies if you don't).

I was watching Graham Norton on Friday and The Durrells in Corfu in supposed to be really good.

I will give season one a watch tonight.

And even more up to date with tonight's episode.

Watching this is sometimes like being a kid at Panto. Except instead of just hissing the villain you want to call them all kinds of names.

This show (Line of Duty) is amazing. I just binge watched the first 4 on iPlayer.

Two episodes in to The Passenger (Le Passager).

It's "not" Spiral (Engrenages) but there are similarities and it's pretty good.

On Netflix I'm about 2/3 way through the series Scott&Bailey. I watched every episode weekly the first time around, but bingeing on it now. God but it's great TV. Super acting, great characters, edgy and good story lines. Much better than any NA police/crime drama, which I refuse to watch. There's a goodly amount of UK drama shows on Netflix these days.

Fargo 3 is a hoot 100% worth a watch.

Watched Line of Duty finale tonight.

Whatever your source make sure you have the full episode. Bizarrely, all the early streams were only 40 minutes instead of the usual 57 or so.
