Watching ‘Encounters with Evil’ on Netflix - there are many serial killers I had never heard of before and done other I had heard of but didn’t know much about them. The episode on cult killings (Jim Jones being one) was fascinating

I also watched the documentary series on Henry Lee Lucas (The Confession Killer) - this was a little more challenging to get into and I feel they could of condensed a lot of the info into less episodes

Away from my morbid fascination with serial killers, I have been re-watching episodes of the original Upstairs Downstairs - I love this series and there is no doubt this influenced Downton Abbey!

Exclamation Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

OMG...Netflix recommended a mini series called “Don’t ***** with Cats”. There are only three episodes and it centers on not so much as a serial killer, but a killer who makes a killing into a serial. Can’t say more as anything would be a spoiler. It it a true story of.... what I believe can become the result of bullying.

Just saw The Two Popes on Netflix. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I mean how can you go wrong when you have Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins..

I watched that a couple of days ago. Brilliantly acted and directed and a once and for all debunking of the whole RC bullshit.

Not seen it yet, but as you say, how can you go wrong with those two.

I never realized the show was that popular that a comedian was doing an impression of some of the characters

I know it's not the noral type of programme posted on here, but I'm really enjoying 'The Repair Shop' on BBC, it's a programme where people bring in antiques of other items with a specific memory for the people, and which are broken. The people doing the repairs are all expert restorers, and the BBC gets them repaired at no cost to the owners, Items vary from 80 yr old teddy bears, chopper bikes, all sorts of clocks, toys etc. The expertise is wonderful and they owners get them back in working or full restored condition. Just recently there have been a harmonium, which was got back to working condition and a clockwork train set, broken when the owner overwound it, and then tried to repair it, but as he took it apart, it 'exploded' into many, many pieces. The restorer got it back working, and, as it was a christmas special the built a baseboard, for the track, complete with a tunnel and trees. Anyone would have loved to get it back like that.
