Peaky Blinders 5, episode 3 brilliant. But particularly brutal in a 'look away' way.

Episode 4. Wow.

Dutch series "Undercover' is a good show.

Is anyone watching Years and Years ?

Episode one left me a bit unsure, episode two was an improvement, so I'm going for episode three now.

I'm only up for it for Emma Thompson.

Rats, just outside of the two hour edit window.

The backplot builds in a Beeb kind of way (episode 3) but...dunno, can't quite fully get there. Very funny in parts though.

Guess I'll go for episode four...

Season 5 finale.
The tension half way through. I thought I was going to snap.
Superb drama.

Agreed. Even knowing from history that Mosely wasn't assassinated (So Tommys plan wasn't going to suceed) it was gripping stuff,

It was the scene with the Barman that I thought especially tense. You could really feel what was coming but it was so drawn out it was almost unbearable

I never use the word normally but...awesome!

Once you got past Rhys Ifans' (he of the daggy underpants in Notting Hill) American accent it was very enjoyable.
I had completely forgotten this. Just watched first two of season two and season three is already available.

It's a goofy show and its silly reality, but I have been enjoying HGTV build of the Brady Bunch house, it also has the actors who played the Brady kids on it helping.

HGTV bought the house used for the exterior shots in the show when it went up for sale, and well they are turning that house into the Brady house recreating what the set house looked like on TV.

Coronation Street is a great programme to watch, it examines the social machinations of Northern/Manchester working-class lives. I like it.

It was another amazing season of Peaky Blinders. I loved it! Cannot wait for season 6

Okay, someone has been reading my mind.
