Detectorists :wub:

I would be very wary of them doing any more though. Series 2 was pretty perfect in itself and ended beautifully so I was a little worried when I heard they were doing a 3 but obviously they aced that so what do I know!

There are just so many wonderful moments about the show.

Every single report on the news recently about historical sites becoming visible due to the drought just has me saying 'Google Earth Watermark'.

GLOW S2 - 9/10 fantastic; all characters were fleshed out and the arc this season was brilliant. I hope there is another Season but if not the Finale was a fitting send off.

Absolutely loved Shut up and Dance. It's probably my favourite one. Nosedive is also great.

I agree with all of those, but San Junipero is probably my favourite of the Netflix ones.

I'm making my way through Black Mirror at the moment. It's such a unique series. About to start S4, very few duds so far.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

It gets better, but it never quite matches season 2.

They're definitely not the best episodes but I really liked White Bear and Metalhead too.

White Bear is really good. I love the idea behind it.

White Bear would be MASSIVELY popular if it ever happened in real life.

The Vietnam War 10/10

One of the most remarkable shows I've seen in a long time. It does something almost impossible, reconciling all the military, cultural, social and geo-political aspects of the whole Vietnam quagmire into a programme that not only gives the viewer a better understand of the whole sorry affair, but creates and maintains an empathy with almost every opposing viewpoint.

Absolutely no hesitation in calling it a work of genius. A must watch.

These were my two favourite episodes.

White Christmas felt me feeling genuinely cold and, is probably, my favourite ever episode of a TV show.

Nosedive is a very realistic scenario that I can see Gen Z sleepwalking into.

Surprised no one has mentioned Be Right Back. I thought that was a brilliant episode.

I also really enjoyed San Junipero, The Entire History of You, Hang the DJ and Shut Up and Dance. I think White Christmas is the best though. Really well done.

I hope they move away from cookies in Season 5 though. I feel like they've done that angle to death now.

I recently watched all of Steven Universe and Adventure (bar the last 4 unaired episodes.) Both great, but I prefer Steven Universe.

Yes, I like cartoons.

Cobra Kai.

Anyone who doesn't know what this is, it is a 10 part "sequel" to the original Karate Kid showing what happened to Danny and Johnny, 30 odd years later.

Not sure of the intention behind this but through all of his flaws, still ended up rooting for Johnny throughout.

Wasn't sure whether this would work but it does, and pretty enjoyable in the 30 minute episode format.

Only downside is that it is a YouTube exclusive but fortunately my son has a free trial so we watched it over a few weeks.

I think an 8 is fair.

Yes?

Agreed. I finished watching it about a week ago and it's fantastic. It strikes a perfect balance of being a comprehensive account of the ideological build-up and the political, social and cultural ramifications that followed, with personal stories that lend a degree of intimacy to the entire ordeal. Having only really observed the Vietnam War through media that portrays it as little more than a glorified CCR gig, it was an excellent learning resource.

I'd have liked it to expand a little more on the ARVN forces, particularly after the US had pulled out, but I suppose the documentary did its job now that I'm interested in learning about this on my own.

Stranger Things 2

Urgh. Haven't witnessed a fall in quality like this since, er, Prison Break maybe? A woefully misjudged follow up to a fantastic show, this gets almost everything wrong. The endearing naivety of the group is gone (I guess this couldn't really be helped, but it's still a massive loss). The 'new kid' storyline is clichéd, and the whole thing seems to plod along aimlessly for the first few episodes. Oh and then we get a gooseberry fool CG dog thing (the CG was bad in the first show, but here it's front and centre, and just as terrible).

Splitting Eleven from the rest of the cast for the majority of the show is a dreadful decision, the relationship between her and Hopper nowhere near as interesting as with the kids. And the less said about her foray into the 80's X-Men the better. One of the worst episodes of TV I've ever seen.

It does get better, the finale in particular was excellent but it should never have been such a grind to get to that point. A huge disappointment.

5/10
