True Detective Series 3. Good character drama, but I felt it was riffing off season one too much at the start and ended with a whimper rather than a bang. Stephen Dorff was the real revelation here though and his performance was brilliant! 6/10

Good Omens - Thoroughly enjoyed this. Tennant and Sheen were both superb in this and it was surprisingly faithful to the book. Cracking stuff! Now I want to see good adaptations of the Diskworld series please! 8/10

Chernobyl.

It was fantastic mini TV series but horrifying. :dread:

Would recommend anybody to watch it.

Chernobyl - 9/10

Both fascinating and harrowing in equal measure .

Would have been better if it was in Ukrainian/Russian with English subtitles but I fully understand why they didn't do that.

I’ve not seen Chernobyl but have heard people say it should have been in Russian. Surely though it should have been in a mix of Ukrainian and Russian?

I watched the first episode last night - super tense and the background music just fills you with a brooding dread :dread:

Yeah, all episodes were excellent, but I felt the fourth episode was the best.

Pedants: “Why didn’t they make Chernobyl more accurate by using Russian instead of English?”

Serious answer: “But Chernobyl is in Ukraine!”

Pedants: “Pedant!”

I love the book and while the series isn’t as good, it’s still excellent.

Currently Amazon only, but I think it’s coming to the BBC later this year.

I'm halfway through episode 3 and as a fan of Good Omens I'm not sure there could be a piece of television any finer than the first half of that episode. Crowley and Aziraphale through the ages was just absolutely lovely.

My only complaint would be that it needed more than half an episode. I could have watched 20 episodes of their interactions through the ages. :wub:

There have been many times where literary adaption casting just doesn't work but in this case, Sheen and Tennant are so utterly perfect for the main parts.

13 Reasons Why: Season 1

10/10

Deeply moving and utterly harrowing in equal measure, yet the writing, acting, and story (which really did pull no punches, some of the scenes were so graphic, they were incredibly hard to watch) was truly magnificent.

One of the finest shows i've seen in years.

The inevitable denouement... :dread:

I enjoyed season 2 as well. The soundtrack :datass:.
