Stupid, over the top, poorly acted, nonsensical and just outright daft.

I loved it. :lol:


Then get cracking on s2. Especially for that episode. In the morgue. Just make sure you aren’t drinking or eating at that moment or you’ll splutter or choke.

You - Season 1 - 8/10

I did not expect to like this based on the premise but it was surprisingly good. Quite dark but very funny in places too. When watching I couldn't get it out of my head that the main character was Dennis from Always Sunny :lol:

I had the same realisation part way though. It's almost as if You predated Sunny and they then based Dennis on Joe. :lol:

Only half way through this at the moment. It’s pretty good.

Sex Education - Netflix. Wow that was excellent, hope it’s renewed for a second series. Loved the odd mix of 80s and present day societies. The all wear 80s clothes and drive 80s cars yet they had smart phones, laptops and reference current pop culture. Then added to that it’s a hybrid British and American society. Fantastic humour and story telling to boot.

Assuming you find someone of her age bracket hot then yes.

Titans - so good. So many characters, the best batman for a long time and a billion Easter eggs. Last episode had some amazing bits, wish season 2 was out sooner.

The final post credit scene was as good as any marvel has done.

Is titans a Netflix production, so gets its first showing on there? Need to see Season 2.

It's a DC streaming service production. However since that's not available outside the USA Netflix distribution handles it outside the USA and claims it as it's own.

Season 2 is due in October from memory.

1983 - 8/10

"On Netflix, A Polish Alternate-Reality Drama Where The Iron Curtain Still Exists" Very good with some lovely performances. Pacing was decent with only 8 40min episodes. Warning: Some female nudity.

I've watched 4 episodes now i've enjoyed it quite a lot actually. The characters are all very likeable.

Episode 3
The abortion scene with Morrisey wailing 'Asleep' during was quite emotional.

Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes

Really fascinating stuff. The actual crime story is really interesting, but the psychology behind it all is just mindbending. Bundy himself is just an awful, manipulative creepy guy, and yet you end up wondering if he had a fair trial at all. And the pitchfork mob baying for blood at the end wearing 'burn Bundy burn' t-shirts made me sick to my stomach. I kinda feel just a little less pride in the human race right now.

8/10

Twin Peaks

Watched season 1 of this about a year ago and fell in love with it, but dropped off after the opening ep of season 2. Decided to finally go back and watch the whole thing again from the start. Well, the whole original 2 series.

Season 1

Perfection in 8 episodes, it 100% earns its reputation as an essential, foundational part of TV history. It doesn't ape or mock soaps like Dynasty as much as it twists them into uncomfortable shapes that reflect bizarre images of themselves back to us, whilst still managing to be about coffee and pie and teenage romance. Each time it appears to be going too far down one path, of bizarreness or of schlock or of melodrama, it course corrects and shifts into something entirely different. It's a work of genius.

Season 2

Oh dear. I'm glad I read about the production troubles on this before watching it or Lynch would have gone down in my estimations quite a bit. Forced by the network to reveal Laura's killer early on in the season, Lynch then departed the series entirely before returning for the last few eps. Looking the series up online there's apparently an accepted way to watch it: all eps up until the reveal and one subsequent episode, then skip everything until the last 4 of the series. This method glosses over around 7 or 8 eps, and having watched the series this way I found I missed absolutely nothing of importance.

The last 4 are back to the quality of the first season however, especially the finale which is almost as disturbing as the infamous scene earlier in the season. The ending is confusing, disturbing and infuriating, but also strawberry floating excellent.

Roll on Fire Walk With Me and Season 3!

I couldn't finish Twin Peaks. If I'd watched it in the same manner you did I might've, as it was I gave up a few episodes after the killer was revealed.

Watched more Sex Education last night. Eric is just brilliant. :lol:

If you have the time I'd definitely recommend trying again, or even just watching the last 4 eps. Nothing that happens in the middle of the series is at all relevant to the greater plot:

James gets accused of murder, Catherine's brother (the dead one who was married to Josie) is dun dun dun alive after all and Josie is killed for reasons. Also, lots and lots of Super Nadine which is comfortably the worst part of the show.

All you really need to know is that Windome Earle is Coop's ex FBI partner and the series villain, the woman Coop loved and watched die was Earle's wife. That's literally all that you learn from those 7 eps.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching S1 of Twin Peaks about a year ago but have not mustered the courage to get through S2 as of yet - I know it's going to be a disappointment so I can't decide whether to bother with it or not!

What's the verdict on S3 and would I be better off just jumping straight to that?
