Adrien Brody has a really long and pointy nose. And his I-talian American accent is hilariously inconsistent. Felt this series was the weakest of the bunch, but still watchable enough. Polly is a rubbish character.


I'm a few episodes in and enjoying it. Nothing amazing but watchable. I didn't think much of season 3, and lost interest a bit, so it's nice that this season has still held my interest. I agree about Polly though.

Someone on here mentioned the modern music. I've found it very grating this season. Complete nothing scenes, like a car turning up, has some strawberry floating Arctic Monkeys (I'm guessing?) song blasting over the top for about 7 seconds. I don't mind the modern instrumentals, but the full on songs completely ruin some scenes :dread: .

Working my way back through the Detectorists, just watched series 2. Hugh and Russell looking for the mayor's chain is strawberry floating hilarious. Detectorists :wub:

The Alienist.

Great first series (10 episodes). Gritty, gruesome, compelling story, beautifully shot, well acted. Hope they do more.

9/10

Game Of Thrones season 5

Absolutely fantastic although disappointed about the ending & what happens due to spoiler culture.

A read that a new series hasn't as yet been commissioned as they're waiting to see how well the first fairs. Fingers crossed.

Stranger Things series 1

Really liked it. A lot of - weirdly enough - strange going-ons in the show which had me wondering how they could tie them all together well. And well really...cohesion is not exactly the strength of this programme, or at least there are still some questions left to be answered for later seasons. Really, what I liked the most were the characters, including a bully character I was pleased they added some nuance to. A cool 80s setting. Well-paced and gripping throughout. Looking forward to watching series 2 though I have heard some mildly worrying things about it - then again it's been pretty well-reviewed so we'll see, we'll see.

There's only 1 episode in season 2 that's universally loathed - you'll know it when you're watching it :lol:

Second series isn't as good as the first in my opinion, or rather it's simply not as interesting. That One Episode is indeed awful, but the rest is all pretty meh too.

Altered Carbon - 8/10

+ I liked the aesthetic and design
+ Some nice ideas
+ Brutal and gory
+ Decent plot and subplots
+ Pacing differed between episodes

- Some annoying/pointless characters (Lizzie :dread: - hoping she doesn't appear in season 2 - absolutely nothing interesting or appealing about her)
- Could get a little confusing at times

I couldn't get past the third episode, the plot is almost incoherent and it has a strange "uncanny valley" quality to the CGI scenery which looks horrible in 4K .

I don't usually struggle to follow plots (aside from Primer) but there's just so much made up future tech and 'lore' going on in this show that it feels like you need to have a companion show explaining what the strawberry float it is you've just watched.

Mm, I had to look up a couple of bits to make sure I was following things correctly, but I've had to do that in other programmes as well - I didn't find it particularly bad.

It is a bit of a mishmash, but it does get better.

Yeah, AC was a 6 or 7 out of 10 series with a 3/4 out of ten start to it.

Karate Kid is one of my favourite movies of all time and Cobra Kai was everything I could ever possibly want from something like this. Oh my god it was so strawberry floating hype!


Never a truer word spoken (written). An absolutely wonderful bit of TV that treats the source material with huge respect and is genuinely funny in a really good-natured way. Johnny Lawrence is a bloody brilliant character too.

I was expecting some seriously low-budget guff from Cobra Kai but it is probably the most enjoyable TV show I've watched in a decade, if not longer.

Breaking Bad 9/10

It's still great and I'm still kind of conflicted about Walt, on whether the last episode redeemed him. I don't think it did, even though there are parts where you feel bad for him. Dat Cranston performance is a masterclass regardless.
