Bless Sam Worthington's little socks he does try. It's still a fascination of mine how this guy, Plainy McNoface himself, was the go-to guy for Hollywood a while back.

Heere he's completely outshone by Paul Bettany in what is a generally good show. There's one standout ep, that not so coincidentally does not include Worthington, and the rest is watchable if not extraordinary.

Just finished this myself and I've got to echo Taf's comments, Bettany was brilliant but what the hell were they thinking when they hired Worthington? He's so ridiculously bland, a complete non-entity. It's very good TV but it could have been great with the right casting.

Yes, I like cartoons.

My kids have been watching Steven Universe recently so I've absorbed quite a bit of it by osmosis. It's pretty damn good, the song in the final episode of season 1 is brilliant.

Also caught Cupcake and Dino which may have the greatest theme tune of any kids program since Jossy's Giants.

Manhunt: Unabomber

This was superb. I was familiar with the story, but this was a really excellent dramatisation of the events (plus some admittedly made up stuff). Paul Bettany is absolutely incredible in it, giving empathy to a character who could have been portrayed as one-dimensional. Can't recommend it enough.

9/10.

Anyone seen that OJ Simpson series on Netflix? Hungry for more of the same kind of thing.

Is that True Crime Story: OJ Simpson? If so I thought that was really good, and preferred it over Manhunt (though I don't seemed to have liked Man Hunt as much as you)

Final Space 7/10: Fun premise and series, some decent characters, but nothing amazing.

I think on Netflix it's down as 'American Crime Story: The People Vs OJ Simpson'. It's the big budget one with Cuba Gooding JR and Ross from Friends. I'll give it a spin.

Yeh that's the one. I keep meaning to watch the (completely unrelated) 2nd series which was on iPlayer.

Orange is the New Black Season 6: 8/10- I think much better than the last season, however this needs to be wrapped up in a season or two for its own good.

Ozark season 2

A really powerful and dark show, it feels very different to season one but would say it's easily on par 8/10

The 100 - Season 5 - 7/10

Not the best season in terms of pacing but still decent enough to keep watching

The plot has gone a bit Lost esque with constant twists and turns and ridiculous amounts of double crossing going on.

It's also getting quite bleak in places, the show has always had a dark side with characters having to do some fairly bad things to survive but it's getting a bit OTT now with characters like Octavia and Clarke basically murdering people every five minutes despite the fact there's less than 500 human beings left on Earth :fp:

The Sopranos (season 3)

It's a masterpiece.

Preacher: Season 3 - 7.5/10

I loved the first season of Preacher but thought the second season had a bit of a lull in the middle. Season 3 was decent throughout, with some great scenes.

Sex and the City - Season 3

Carrie Bradshaw is, without doubt, the most unlikable protagonist I have ever come across. I'd say she's the most irritating, neurotic, self-sabotaging sociopath since Ross in Friends, but at least Ross was funny.

My girlfriend wanted me to watch it with her. To be fair, I'm enjoying it for the most part, it's just her that pisses me off.

Ugh, I had to endure a watch of Sex and the City a while back, Bradshaw (along with most of the other people in the show in all honesty) truly is a horrible human being.

Similarly if anyone has had to watch Gilmore Girls I would contest that Lorelei Gilmore gives Carrie a run for her money.

This talk reminds me of the Mark Kermode review rant about Sex & The City 2.
