I've too much to go into here, but it's one hell of a consistently brilliantly show. I still think S1 is the best( it's purpose is much clearer, being as it is a full blown analogy of WWI) but the expansion to a gangster family saga is handled so well the following series are almost as excellent.


I agree about Peaky Blinders, loved watching it myself as well :)

Anyway I've just finished watching Requeim on iplayer and I'd still say it's alright, probably a 7/10 being generous. It's good in parts but then a poor in others. The ending was also kind of odd, it's not like it was setting it up for a second series as the way it ended made it seem like a standalone series.

I'm kind of tired of hearing about Peaky Blinders. I watched a couple of episodes with the wife and from what I could tell, aside from having an embarrassingly gooseberry fool name, it appears to consist of Cillian Murphy and a bunch of other melters wandering around, trying to act all hard and intimidatory, calling people out for being pricks and telling them to strawberry float off.

I mean even I could do that yet people rave about it.

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

Well you don't have Cillian Murphy's eyes.

I've never watched any of it but it all seems to be filmed around here (a bunch of the interior shots were being filmed at a house literally just around the corner so we had to get the crew to move their van so we could actually get past them a couple of times) so everyone local raves about it too (to the point where there's "peaky blinders nights" at local pubs :dread: )

Star Trek Discovery. Not a massive fan of Star Trek (not watched any series since The Next Generation) and although I didn't overly enjoy this at first, ended up thinking this was great. The twists in the story were really good. Looking forward to the next series (assuming there will be one).

A solid 8.

Yes?

Embrassingly gooseberry fool name, what?

You do know they were a real gang, right? Do you know the reasoning behind the name?

Couldn't you say that about any gangster story?

Just finished The Punisher. Fairly predictable but enjoyable. I don't think they need another series.

:lol: People rave about this show in work but I haven't given it a watch yet, I think you've just made me realise why I've been reluctant to give it a chance.
