I might wait for it to complete and then binge watch.

What with these backwards segments it's a little more difficult to keep track waiting a week before going backwards again.
Filming has had to be suspended on the series for a few days, they arrived at the location ready to start but there was a real body there, so the real police had to be called, life imitates art?

Lots of it was filmed in and around High River. When doing so, the crew used to store their vehicles on my friend's acreage. During filming, the streets in the town of High River had facades over all of the shop fronts to give it the impression the series wanted.

How were the first 2 episodes?

Just started another 'Snowy' series tonight. (Did I mention the excellent Icelandic series Trapped? )
Glacé or Frozen Dead. Takes place in the French Pyrenees.

I think I should focus on the snowy, frigid landscape stuff now and look for something warmer come winter.

I watched the first 10 episodes of the Spanish drama "I know who you are" (Sé Quién Eres) on BBC4. Lots of yelling and plot twists. I'm waiting for the last 5 episodes to be made available.

A trailer for this 6 part series. It's listed on Netflix but not actually there. I guess that means it's on the way.


Don't be fooled...it's not zombies or anything to do with the undead.

Just started The Midnight Sun. Seen first two parts.

Swedish/French but the Swedes and French that don't understand each other's languages speak English.

Episode one off to a flyer with a couple of bizarre deaths.

Midnight Sun proving even better by the episode. Just two left but had to watch Rellik part 3 on iPlayer just now.

I did. I wasn't sure to start with but episode two was better. I've not taken to Number 1 yet and I'm irritated by Sarek not being Sarek, that they have technology that "later" Star Trek series don't. I did like the Klingons.

Ah, the Bewitched and Roseanne issue.

I read something about that. I thought they were getting around it with the different time-line/alternate universe thing, like with the cinema reboots having technology that the original Kirk et al didn't have.

Because I'm behind the times I've just finished Narco's and Peaky Blinders. Narco's is good but requires commitment in watching subtitles - no looking twitter whilst the show plays i the background and keeping up! Plus side is you learn a lot of Colombian Spanish swear words:-)

Watched the first of the new Star Trek. Bit meh if you ask me as the world has moved on. (I must give another plug for The Expanse which sets the bar for sci fi now imho). Plus in the age of iPhones don't communicators look rather quaint and outdated?!
