I have just watched the first four episodes of “Siren” and I really enjoyed it although I can’t see where it’s going to go from here now it kind of felt like it ended after that last episode I watched, next episode is on Thursday so I’ll wait until then to rate it

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

9/10


Agreed its a little like sherlock and reminded me a little of Hannibal with some of the art style and grit.


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.


I just finished this and was thoroughly disappointed. Started off strong but was too long and the script fell apart towards the end with plot holes everywhere.

After getting used to Dexter's British accent this was actually pretty good. Lots of twists and turns, and it never drags. Some good attention to detail I noticed the necklace in the pool very early on, and also the VCR at Chris' house. It did a good job with creating red herrings and ruling them out within an episode or two, so you're constantly guessing. I did figure out the ending the episode or two before, but there was a lot of detail with the motives that meant the finale was still great.

I thought it was a bit of let down. I have to believe that in the book the reader would have known about the incident at the school neaer the beginning as it would have given context to the gated community and some weight to the reveal I also found it difficult to believe that the chief detective would have been able to carry on completely unfased by what she had done. Definitely the best English accent by an American that I've heard.

Patriot

Just binged on it over the weekend. It's fun in an offbeat way with serious Wes Anderson and Cohen Brothers thoughtout. It's dark in place, sad in others but a fun little joyride.

8/10

The Punisher

I thought it was amazing. Definitely in the top 3 of Marvel's Netflix shows. And Jigsaw!

Ozark season one - 8/10

Really enjoyed this, initially I wasn't sure if I could take Jason Bateman seriously but he's actually really good in this. I like that it avoids some of the tropes for this sort of show, for example there isn't the tedious aspect of him hiding his criminal life from his wife because she already knows about it. Looking forward to season two.

Mindhunter season one - 8/10

The actor playing Ed Kemper is great, so unnerving.

Yep, the final scene with him was incredibly tense :dread:

Yeah definitely. Not much actually happened but the way it was built up throughout the season and the way it was acted and shot etc. makes it an incredibly effective scene. I think this scene and the show overall is a great example of less is more.

The Last Kingdom - Season 2

Still great fun. It's historically all over the shop and a bit lightweight in places, but it cracks along at a fair old pace and is super entertaining. The characters are almost universally great, particularly King Alfred who somehow manages to be both likeable and a total arsehole. :lol:

7/10

Season 3 is coming to Netflix later this year. It is no longer co-produced with the bbc and is solely a Netflix production now.

Cheers for the heads up, I always missed it on BBC anyway and watched both series on Netflix.

Wild Wild Country - 10/10

All the way through it I was just like ‘nah not all of this could of happened, no way, absolutely not’...but it was just sheer disbelief layered by more disbelief layered by more disbelief, insofar as it all did. Extraordinary.
So Taf, pack the soapbox away, I did my bit.

Safe. It was enjoyable, but a bit of a cheat that it only revealed the true story in the last couple of episodes meaning it is just going to lead you astray for the first 6 episodes.

Enjoyable little series bit missed some rather crucial whodunnit checkpoints which means I can only give it a 7.

Edit: Curiously, lots of people on Reddit think that Michael C. Hall's accent was terrible and questioned why he couldn't just play an American. Shockingly, those doing the complaining were all American.

I thought his accent was great, although I would be hard pushed to say where in England his accent came from! Never understand why they get Americans to play English and vice versa, not like there is a shortage of actors or they can't just play a person from their country with a slight script change.

About and episode and a half into Arrested Development season 5 and um,

Image

It's not good at all. The scene of Maeby and George-Michael midway through the first ep felt like something from an entirely different show. AD has always been super kinetic and this was a long, ponderous face-to-face scene with no dynamism and no laughs. It actually felt like a drama series.

The rest hasn't been great either, with very few laughs and a continuation complete lack of subtlety that marred series 4 ("Let's strawberry float our way across Mexico!" Urgh).

A very bad start.

Honestly, S4 felt completely different to me. Judging by what you are saying and what I seen of S4, they may have lost what made this show so good.

The Flash S4 - 7/10

Liked it more than s3 but it isn't without its flaws, the main story arc was alright aside from The Thinker's plan being utterly ridiculous - he's supposed to be a super genius, not psychic yet the vast amount of stuff that he 'calculated' would happen would only be possible if he was indeed psychic, mainly him knowing exactly which 'random' abilities the people on the bus would get..

Was just nice to have a villain that wasn’t a speedster. I also thought the Ralph story and HR’s arc were both good too. Just a shame the actual finale felt like a letdown
