I just finished the series after buying the series 4 blue ray and watching again from the start and after a week of pretty solid watching (I've been on holiday) it's over and I have zero regrets :wub: .

Anyone with even a passing interest in Sci-Fi should watch this as it's strawberry floating amazing with some truly great characters and an emotionally powerful story about trying to stop the end of the world via time travel. Why the Sci-Fi channel didn't market the pants of this I have no idea as (I don't say this lightly) it really is up there with Star Trek: TNG and Battlestar Gallactica in quality. Have a look at the Reddit to see what people think.

Easy 10/10 and I say again if you've never considered it or not heard of it please give it a chance (Season 1-3 are on Netflix) as you honestly won't regret it.


Ive just started this, wholly on your recommendation. S1E1 was good. Dont let me down Peter, we're routing for you.

The first season is the weakest so if you like it already I think you'll love seasons 2,3 and 4 :D .

Katarina Jones really does start to shine in later series as does Jennifer Goins.

It really is a rather well hidden gem of a show :wub: .

It took me a long time to get through this, but it's probably one of the best documentaries I've seen. I was very ignorant about Vietnam (hence me watching this) but seeing this put a lot of context to moments and events that I was only vaguely aware of, and filled in a lot of gaps in my knowledge.
Not really an 'entertaining' thing to watch, but very interesting and informative, as well as being quite sad at times.


Who was showing it? Netflix?

The Sopranos

Devastated that it's over :cry:.

Will probably make a tradition of watching it through every 4-5 years or something :wub:.

Yeah, Netflix. It's 16.5 hours long, split into 10 episodes.

I know it's super-old news, but... The Big Bang Theory is pretty neat. I've only ever seen short clips before and, watching series 1 on Netflix, it's good fun.

Edit: Except for the wildly loud canned laughter, of course.

Think it's better with Tidus. BBT is SHITE.

Yep, that clip is infinitely funnier thanks to the involvement of Tidus.

Like many US sitcoms BBT has about enough humour to produce maybe one or two episodes of decent enough TV, they then stretch that out across about 10 years and somehow people still keep tuning in.

BBT is genuinely offensive.

I find Sheldon so horrible it it goes way past knowing he has societal mental issues and just makes him into a twat.
I honestly don't know why anyone would choose to live with someone like him no matter how smart he is.

The fact I also find the humour completely unfunny doesn't help and the canned laughter at everything anyone says is really jarring.

I've only really watched a bit of BBT. Mostly as something in the background when I was having dinner or something and it was on TV. It seems quite safe and comfortable, so I can see why it's popular, but it did nothing for me. I found the characters quite...horrible. The blonde woman just seemed to be a an arsehole, have nothing in common with anyone, and yet (I think) was married to one of them? :slol: . It also played up to literally every cliche of nerd culture you could think of.

Still...better than 2 and a half men.

Anyway, I've been rewatching Futurama as it's on Amazon Prime. I've not seen it in a long time, but it's still so good :wub: I've not really seen much of the newer seasons, so I'm intrigued about those.

The Expanse – Season 3 – 10/10

I heard Amazon had picked up the series after it was cancelled, but I only realised last week that they had Season 3 up. If you loved the first 2 seasons then you should love this one, more of the Earth/Mars/Belter politics with added protomolecule madness.

Ooh nice, didn't realise it was on prime! That's going onto my list of to rewatch soon.

The original four seasons are pure gold. I've definitely watched the first "new" season and it was okay but not great - not sure if the later stuff picked back up again.

I'm currently watching "Sex Education" on netflix.

It's interesting and somewhat humorous. However, I can't figure out what date it's set in. Perhaps that doesn't matter? Also, the school was nothing like my time at sixth form.

I really enjoyed it but the setting is weird. It’s obviously modern day as they are using smartphones, but it feels like it is set in the 70s or 80s. And it is very British while looking very American. It’s quite clever really.

Just got up to S2E8 Lullaby. Really good episode. - best one so far. Im hoping Netflix pick up S4 before i get to the end of S3, they dropped S1 a couple of days ago.
