As it’s a pain to get on streaming services over in the UK, I’d recommend anyone who likes comedy’s to give Community a watch on All 4. It’s an ensemble comedy which does lots of spoofs and homages of cult films. It launched the careers of the majority of the cast including Donald Glover (childish Gambino) and Alison Brie. The paintball episodes are also what got the Russo Brothers their Marvel films so the directing is top notch too!

If anyone wants an easy watch I suggest Elementary. It's Sherlock Holmes with a slight twist as Watson is female.
Normally I don't like change but gave it a go.
Its set in this decade and New York is the new home of Sherlock.

{Ed001's Note - and Watson is Lucy Liu which makes her very watchable. Very very watchable.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 20:04:09
Very much so edd 1 I've managed to watch 5 whole seasons in a month. I don't watch much TV but I've really taken to the show.
I've always liked Sherlock since being a kid but me being me I put of watching because Lucy liu playing Watson.
Big mistake on my part. I think she's put an excellent spin on the character.

{Ed001's Note - whereas I only watched it as she was in it and I have a thing for her. Not my favourite Sherlock interpretation but it is watchable. I do love the character Sherlock Holmes, I used to read the stories over and over as a kid.}

Lucy Lui. She was so hot in Lucky Number Sleven.

{Ed001's Note - her best was Payback with Mel Gibson when she was the dominatrix.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 20:55:42
Ah Payback, that was a bloody good film that Ed. But yeah she made the film much more exciting, my word.

I've not seen Elementary but may give it a go, I'm struggling to find good things to watch these days.

{Ed001's Note - give Castle Rock a wide berth, that was dire I thought. Mind I do not like Stephen King, bores me.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 21:05:18
Ah Ed tell me about it I don't like his stuff either but to be fair I'm not into horror kind of films at all, they all seem too similar lol.

Wow tell you what though, was looking at films from the 90's and 1994 was a fantastic year for films. The Shawshank Redemption, Pulp Fiction, Forest Gump, Leon, Interview with the vampire, dumb and dumber, true lies, legends of the fall, natural born killers, the crow, four weddings and a funeral and ace venture all released that year. I need a week or 2 off work and binge watch aload of the 90's films, was some right classics.

{Ed001's Note - I love The Crow, Natural Born Killers and True Lies, but the rest I would rather have my foreskin scraped with a cheesegrater than see again.

Oh sorry remove Leon from either list as I never got the chance to see it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2018 11:23:40
Hahahaha! class mate, each to their own of course but the main ones I loved out of that list were The crow, what a bloody film that was, NBK, Pulp fiction, interview with the vampire and legends of the fall, the rest I liked but they were my favourites of the year I think.

Leon is a good film mate I would advise it but there again I'd of advised the other films so you may not like it mate lol.

Here's one for you mate, what was your top 3 films of the 90's? for me this is very difficult to choose because so many top films were made but I'd go with Heat, Boyz n the hood and maybe casino. Again it's difficult, special mentions to goodfellas, terminator 2, matrix, fight club, seven, reservoir dogs, saving private ryan etc my god the list could go on and on lol.

The Expanse

Set more than 200 years into the future Earth has colonized Mars, the Asteroid Belt and some Moons surrounding Jupiter.

Tensions have been high between Mars and Earth for some time, with the Asteroid Belt(Belters) feeling that both view them as inferior and slaves(kind of true, but not completely).

It's a tale of betrayals and deception for the most part, losts of plot twists and interesting character reveals. It can get quite confusing at times, as there are 3 major storylines going on at once. One for Earth, one for Mars and one for the Belt, as well as several minor storylines being played out too. The great thing about it is that all of the storylines including the minor ones all form into one for the final 2 episodes of each series. I think it could be done a little better, but that doesn't mean they did it completely wrong.

The characters are interesting(although some are very, very annoying), and given it's a sci-fi show, you've kind of got to give it some room for cheesiness in the script. The thing I found most intriguing was how the gravity on different planets/asteroids effected the human body. I was quite pleased to see the realism in this, as it's something that is very rarely covered. For example, the people that were born/lived a very long time on the Asteroid Belt, had all kinds of bone deficiencies and muscular issue's, aswell as having severe pain while in normal gravity situations.

The CGI in places is awesome, as you'd expect of a space sci-fi show, but it's not the usual pew pew laser beams and phton torpedos. The hand held guns are more like mini-rail guns but not nearly as destructive, the spaceships have proper rail guns for close combat and tactical nuclear warheads for torpedos. Plus they have the planet destroying nukes, which(spoiler alert), Earth fires 151 of them at one point in the series, you'll have to watch it to find out why.

All 3 factions(Earthers, Martians and Belters) seem to paint each other as the bad guys, the show does you no favours in helping decide who's good and bad either, not until a full reveal later in the series.

Much of the show is either in the belt or in space, Earth has a few scenes, mainly in the place of government. I don't actually remember their being any scenes on Mars, aside from 1 training exercise by Martian Marines to introduce their characters.

For me, this show serves as a bridge between current real life technologies and the ridiculous technologies of shows like Star Trek. There is nothing like warp drives or pew pew laser rifles, it's predominantly just bigger and better versions of things we already have. I'm good with that, as I always wondered what came before the warp core or photon torpedos, you know?
Definitely worth a watch in my eyes and Season 3 comes out at the end of this year or the start of next year. Sorry if this seems to be all jumbled and rambling, I was just typing stuff about the show as it came to my head lol.

{Ed001's Note - I will have a look at this mate, thanks for the recommendation.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2018 16:14:02
No problem Ed. It's also worth mentioning that this is a Syfy channel TV Series, but it really isn't the usual tacky garbage that they put on. Plus I must correct my previous post, Season 3 is concluding this weekend on Syfy, but won't be coming to Netflix until October(ish).

{Ed001's Note - I just looked at the app I use to track what I watch, I have that bookmarked as one to check out already, so I just forgot about it.

I have just started on Condor, that is looking interesting so far after the first ep.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 13:48:39
gave this a try and it is good mate, enjoying it so far.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 20:33:45
I really like it too, excited for Season 3 when it comes onto Netflix.

{Ed001's Note - I am still on season 1. I watched the first episode of Altered Carbon the other night, which was intriguing at least. It made me want to see more.

Also Colony is quite good.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 20:45:03
I've been looking at those two for a little bit, not really knowing if I want to watch them yet.

{Ed001's Note - I am not one for bingewatching a show, would rather watch lots of different things, so I try loads of things. Those two are among the better ones, along with Preacher. I like Preacher. Stranger Things I am still undecided on.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 20:46:01
At the moment I'm watching Zoo, which was really interesting until Season 2 started. I'm not sure I like the direction it's going, and may stop watching after another 2 episodes or so.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know that one. Tell you what I would say to not bother with, Cloak and Dagger. It is a Marvel thing, but it is not particularly good, just odd.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 21:29:14
Stranger Things is bloody excellent Ed. Really, it's the best thing I've watched in a while.

{Ed001's Note - I have only watched a few episodes but it is intriguing. Certainly worth a watch so far.}

Agree0 Disagree0

 

 

17 Jul 2018 06:21:45
Just watched Stranger Things seasons 1 and 2 in 2 days. Anyone else watching/watched it? Pretty good series

{Ed001's Note - not seen it, what is it about? I tried watching Power but it had 50 Cent in it and he stank up every scene he was in. Tried that The 100 but it was just trash. Impulse was meh. Gave that 'The Handmaid's Tale' a bash, but just found it a bit dark and disturbing for my tastes. I just want something on in the background while I edit that keeps me focused on work and makes me notice the time when I have to change episode. Otherwise I can get lost in research or writing and end up not noticing I haven't eaten all day.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2018 19:48:53
I really don't know how to explain it without creating the great wall of text, so I guess I'll just post the trailer and hope it grabs you.

{Ed001's Note - I will take a look thanks.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2018 20:01:01
Sorry I posted a bit too quickly before, so I'll carry on here.
What I will say, is there are some genuinely great moments in the series, with excellent acting, excellent script and even though some of it is a little bit cliche it works brilliantly. For example, you have your typical bullies and your typical teen parties etc, but those moments genuinely build the characters and don't just put on a show. There is also a typical love triangle going on, and when that one finishes, another one starts, but again it works well.
Admittedly, this is all stuff that would normally annoy the hell out of me and make me turn it off, but it's actually done well and I feel it even helps the series along. There is a scene in season 2, involving one of the nerds Dustin and a popular older kid called Steve. They are just walking down a railroad talking, but it's one of the best scenes in the series outside of the main characters.

The best way I can say it, is if you're a bit of a nerd and enjoy dark science fiction, then you should appreciate some aspects of this series at least.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jun 2018 23:09:24
Bit more on Amazons lord of the rings show ed. Rumour has it that its going to follow young Aragorn. Probably when he comes of age and finds out his true name and lineage then off to prove himself. I'm expecting them of course to mess it up and have him start out ad the typical arrogant young hothead who messes up and learns valuable lessons that shape him into the wise Aragorn we see later on in the films. That and a lot of emo angsty stuff because of arwen.

{Ed001's Note - that sounds likely but hopefully it will be more GoT-ish.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jun 2018 12:52:32
Hopefully so. There's so much potential. GoT shows how it could be done well even with the weaker source material GoT has.

{Ed001's Note - I have to admit, having tried to read the books the series is based on, I don't get how GoT went so big. They are dreadful.}

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jun 2018 22:23:07
I know, they're so hard to read. Just too many random characters to keep track of that are there for five minutes that you forget about only to pop up again ages later.

I imagine the concept appealed. Fantasy. Dragons. Zombies. Battles. Ticks boxes for a lot of people. Om sure the naked ladies on screen had little impact.

Agree0 Disagree0

 

 

06 May 2018 08:02:51
Anybody watched 'Power' ? really enjoying it tbh, never heard of it until the other day and now I'm upto season 2 lol. Really reminds me of the wire so if you liked that, I'd recommend it.

I also started to watch lost, bloody hell what was all the hype about? I'm sorry but it's terrible in my opinion, just everything about it is truly awful and made me cringe!

A few other things I've been watching aver the past few months:

Gomorrah, love it, possibly one of my favourites of all time.

Narcos
Suits
TWD
Billions
Big Little Lies, don't hate on me, it wasn't my choice to watch this lol have to do what you have to do to keep the Mrs happy!

{Ed001's Note - I have not seen Power, in fact I haven't seen any of those shows, though everyone seems to rave about Narcos and Suits. I thought you would like Billions as the lead is a Liverpool fan.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2018 08:39:35
Yes got to love Damian Lewis mate lol I've always liked him as an actor, especially in Band of Brothers, now that was a bloody good series.

TWD, I loved at one point but I feel it's losing it a bit now and has been for a few series, time to finish it in my opinion, they're going round in circles with it I feel and it could've been a lot better, it always seems so dragged out.

Narcos I loved, I just wish there was more out so I could binge watch, after season 2 I didn't see how they could pull off another season and they did which surprised me, definitely recommend that one if your into that kind of stuff. I love my mafia kind of programs, Narcos, Gomorrah, sopranos, boardwalk empire etc.

Suits, like billions, wouldn't usually be my kind of series but gave them a go and was surprised, chuft I gave them a go because they pull you in wanting more after each episode, great actors, most of which I've never seen before.

Big Little Lies, typical woman kind of program but I'm going to be honest, I didn't mind it lol not something I'd say is fantastic or anything but it was something to watch and I can't say it's terrible.

I tried to watch that Mr Robot but I don't know, I don't think it's for me, seems to weird! I don't like the main part at all (Rami Malek) having said that, I haven't seen many so maybe I was too quick to quit it but you'd expect from the first few that they'd pull you in to watch more, it didn't do that for me.

You got any suggestions Ed? running out of things to watch, especially after I finish this Power.

{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't waste time on Mr Robot - it is dire. Lucifer is excellent.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2018 09:23:13
Ah yes, Lucifer, I've read good things about it, that's after Power then!

{Ed001's Note - I really enjoy Lucifer, one of the best shows I have seen in years.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2018 11:27:27
I'll get it started soon, cheers mate, looking forward to that one actually. You seen Atlanta? the trailer didn't do it for me but people seem to be loving it.

{Ed001's Note - I quite like Atlanta. Seen the first season.}

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Apr 2018 12:04:15
Anybody watching atlanta season 2?? Wanted to know if its as good as season 1. Will be downloading once all the episodes are out.

Agree0 Disagree0

 

 

06 Apr 2018 16:02:44
Ed1 have you seen Amazons doing a 1 billion 5 season version of Lord of the Rings? Alas they've said Jackson is involved. Not sure its needed but probably jumping on the GoT bandwagon especially with that due to finish and a large fantasy audience available.

{Ed001's Note - I didn't know that, not sure how that will work. It could be amazing but I doubt it. The books are just too complex for TV or film. The concepts he wrote about are going to be very difficult to make into a series. It is difficult to get an idea over to people via pictures, text does that much better as it enables a person's imagination to take over and provide the pictures.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2018 22:39:56
I'm not sure how it would work either. They'd have to cut a lot of what you said out. It would play just as a straight adventure which lessons it.

Funnily few weeks back I was thinking about how with GoT coming to the end it left a gap in the market and I was trying to work out how to film the Silmarillion for tv. Bloody hard it would be.

{Ed001's Note - Tolkien's stuff just isn't suited to the medium at all. Some books are, not his though.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2018 23:27:15
That's what I realised. Some of it would make for brilliant tv. The whole Beren and Luthien story for example. But the higher concept stuff like the Ainulindale just couldn't be done.

{Ed001's Note - shame though, as it would be great if it could.}

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Apr 2018 00:04:20
I think you've got to get the balance right in explaining it. You don't want to have to spoon feed it as that would just suck the pace out of it but you've got to explain enough so people who aren't familiar with it aren't lost. It can't be too simplified that you treat the audience as thickos but it has to enough to keep the attention. GoT as an example whilst not having the high philosophy concepts was quite complex just in terms of the cast of characters, the 3 separate stories ranged over a wide geography etc and they streamlined it down to be more manageable

{Ed001's Note - not sure they did, I kept losing interest and have not bothered watching it all as I kept forgetting who was who as I only watch shows every now and again.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2018 13:05:45
Well the books are worse. Tried to read them but it got confusing keep cutting back and forth between characters. One example, the red headed whore that was in the first few series was a combination of 3-4 minor characters into just 1. So they did do a lot of tidying up and condensing but it is something you have to keep track of.

Going back, have you ever played lord of the rings online?

{Ed001's Note - I have never read the books, me dad has them but he never seemed all that impressed with them so I haven't bothered.

I have not played that no. Is it like ESO?}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2018 13:53:05
Yeah they are hard going. Because there's no central narrator and its constantly moving between who's narrating its confusing. Its better on tv I have to say.

Basically you run round middle earth doing quests and your path crosses the fellowship

{Ed001's Note - I never even knew that existed. What platform is it on?}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2018 17:11:00
PC. Takes a few hours to download but its free. Altho there is vip option.

{Ed001's Note - free? Just my price range then. Might have to take a look at that.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2018 18:10:03
Well first came out in 2007 as shadows of angmar, I remember it coming out but was pricy. Then I found it few months back whilst looking something up. They've just done two updates adding Mordor and Mirkwood. I think the expansions aren't free but haven't got that far. You can be elf, dwarf, hobbit, man, high elf ir beorning, pick a class like hunter or burglar an jump in. There's an epic quest storyline an loads of side quests. The visuals are pretty good.

{Ed001's Note - ok you've sold me on it, I will have a look for it later. Just waiting for Man Utd to get to the Etihad so that game can kick off, City seem to have been playing a long training game while they wait.....}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2018 23:06:09
Turned up in the end.

Its just good going through some of the areas and it feels more like middle earth than the films.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Apr 2018 20:27:41
Right chaps not been in on here in a while any advice on gamorrah?

Worth it?
Wide berth?

{Ed001's Note - what's that mate?}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Apr 2018 20:43:42
Gomorrah.

Mafia in Naples it’s subtitled which is why I’ve avoided it for so long but I’ve heard great things about it so just after some advice on here

{Ed001's Note - ah ok. Not my kind of thing then.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Apr 2018 20:48:49
Nor mine to be honest but really struggling for something to watch at the minute

13 Feb 2018 09:59:13
Legion - anyone else watched this? I have just finished watching the first season and it is just weird. I kept hoping it would make sense, or at least become entertaining but it is not really for me. Mind it is very much like an odd horror movie and I have never found those anything other than boring.

{Ed001's Note - I was really hoping for more comedy with it having Jermain Clement in it.}

22 Jan 2018 19:19:46
Anybody else been watching Britannia? Seems odd so far.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2018 14:06:29
yes, not been great, hoping it would be a Thrones esq Series, no where near it !!

{Ed001's Note - there were a lot of talk that it would be like a new must watch show, but I have watched the first 8 episodes and it has not really grabbed me. Having said that, I never got into Thrones in its first couple of seasons either.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Dec 2017 11:58:37
I tried that Knightfall show the other day to put on in the background and just leave it running during a busy day. Never realised there were just 2 episodes! Not enough to decide if it is any good or not really. Does anyone know if that was the lot or if they are making more?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jan 2018 19:19:10
I am still undecided on this show, after about 7 episodes, but I am still watching it so I guess it is ok enough for a first season.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2018 16:57:31
I want to watch knightfall but once its a complete series as hate waiting a week for the next episode.
I watched the first episode of britannia but it gave me a headache. Don't think I'll watch anymore.

{Ed001's Note - I think the first season is done as it has stopped at 10. As for Britannia it was just bizarre and I stopped after the 8th.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Mar 2018 17:16:39

Game of thrones 😢😍 such brilliance and sadness in the last episode.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2017 05:04:03
The only saving grace for this season is the major plotlines occuring. Everything else has been dreadful, went from a show with excellent writing to the sorry stare it has become now. How much of it is down to the GOT executives having to cram everything into last remaining two season, I don't know.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2017 07:02:00
Had another Mr Robot moment watched the first episode of Ozark and it drew me in I thought this is going to be great then watched the next 6 and absolutely nothing happened so give up watching it.

Basically there's a few men who launder money for the Mexican cartel and it starts with a couple of men who try to steal 8m from the Mexican boss which he finds out so he does what any cartel boss does but one man begs for his life tells him he'll earn that back plus extra and I'm afraid that's where it ends all that happens after that is he starts buying businesses to hide the dirty money in.

Oh and it's Jason Bateman in a serious role he's no good in comedy roles which he is mainly known for.

{Ed001's Note - I have to say that show never appealed to me at all, I read a precis and thought 'naw'. It sounds crap.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2017 07:08:22
Wish I'd done the same ed to be honest.

I'm just really struggling for something to watch lately might do season 2 and 3 of Fargo liked the first season also may give penny dreadful a go

{Ed001's Note - have you tried Powers yet? If so is it any good?}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2017 07:19:14
i haven't watched powers it didn't appeal to me at all

{Ed001's Note - ah ok, it did get mixed reviews.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2017 01:43:43
I really enjoyed powers but I think a big bit depends on how you feel about effects as yeah they just aren't good, if you can ignore that is a good show! TBH not just effects it just isn't a good looking show. As for recommendations Peaky Blinders is a quality one!

Last night I went on a bit of a youtube bender watching old Game of Thrones clips and it got me marvelling just how brilliant the early seasons were, it also made me a little sad ahead of season seven knowing that the show is unlikely to hit those heights again.

The brilliance of Game of Thrones was never the dragons or battle scenes or any of the magical side of things, it was the characters and how their own personal ambitions and motivations clashed with each other. I loved how there were no straight up villains, when Tywin Lanister assassinated Rob Stark it wasn’t because he was a ‘baddie’ he did it to bring a war to end and saved thousands of lives (shades of America using the atomic bomb in WW2). The best scenes had no action at all, just brilliant dialogue, most of the plot occurred in the small council chamber as various schemers jockeyed for position and power.

The show today is very different, there is less ambiguity about the character’s motivation, Cersai and Euron are straight up villains to be defeated whilst Tyrion, Jon and Dani are the goodies coming to save the day. Brilliant dialogue has been replaced by spectacle and whilst I’d never deny that set pieces like the ‘Battle of the B***erds’ are incredible they’re nowhere near as interesting as a character using guile to achieve the same thing.

I will watch the last two seasons religiously, I’m too invested in the show to skip it, I just hope that, as we approach the climax, the show still has some tricks up its sleeve and we’re not just heading towards a climax where were the goodies defeat the baddies and everyone lives happily ever after.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2017 21:23:09
I think it's just a case of them having to wrap up things quickly. A 10 season series would probably have done complete justice to the series but that is of course not possible due to a variety of reasons.

While I agree that over the past two seasons and even in Dragonstone, they've gone for big moments (The Red Toast? That whole scene was a bit illogical too me but cool nonetheless) , I think it's just something us long time viewers will have to accept.

And regarding your point of being clear good and bad characters ,I agree to some extent. For me they've completely screwed up Daenerys's story arc. The whole Mereen plotline was just boring to me. However GRMM has said that it'll be a bittersweet ending so hopefully there's more shades to her personality. Perhaps she sacrifices her life after all the effort she has put in for The Iron Throne.

But then again there are characters like Jaime and Sandor who have had brilliant story arcs throughout the series. Sandor was the star of the last episode for me. I think he has moved away from The Hound is now just Sandor Clegane.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2017 19:20:37
So any Game of Thrones fans here? The new trailer looks absolutely fantastic with dragons and flaming swords and what not. Just finished rewatching the whole series again and the amount of hints and intricacies to smal things is absolutely fascinating.

{Ed001's Note - I don't mind it, just can't keep track of all the people as I forget who is who. My dad is obsessed with it, mainly because they film a lot of it by where they live.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2017 19:32:37
Yeah. That's why it gets better every time you binge watch it. So you can keep track f everything and pick up on the details.
Till where have you watched Eddard 001?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I tend to forget anything that is not football related to be honest.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 07:55:40
Haha. Heavy workload these days I guess. I'd sure be willing to help out anywhere if you guys need it.
I actually sent a reply asking about the football news views but I don't know if it went through or not

Caught up on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. over the past few days, mostly because I was just interested to see how they tied it in with the films. Despite the appearance of Ghost Rider, a character I like a lot, I was really disappointed with this show. It made a few references to events from the films, but it was very much separated.

It never felt like the same universe that has Capt America etc in it. They are so hugely conspicuous by their absence, even when events would clearly have attracted the involvement of some of them. Every reference to them, or the films, just made it more obvious that they were missing.

They need to solve that problem, to make their absence less conspicuous. Either by creating storylines that properly integrate with the films', including a few of the heroes in the show or by running storylines that clearly would not call for the involvement of the superheroes.

I watched Mr Robot over the last few days, admittedly I tend to not concentrate that hard on what I am watching as I am busy editing, but it was hard work. Not hard work as in rubbish, hard work as in difficult to follow what was going on. It really does mess with your head. Now I have watched it all the way through, I have no idea if I actually enjoyed it or not! What I do know is that it kept me watching all the way through and made me want to see what happened next.

That's exactly how I found it ed. I never get much time to watch tv or film nowadays, but I heard good reviews of Mr robot and thought I would give it a go. It's not the best nor the worst thing I've watched.

{Ed001's Note - I am still trying to figure out what it was!}

the trailer to it looked brilliant (the coffee shop scene) and I couldn't wait to watch it then I watched it and part of my life I will never get back I thought it was terrible one of the worst series I've ever watched

{Ed001's Note - so you enjoyed it then? I am a little unsure dd, you should get off that fence.....}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed honestly I'd rather be stripped naked and dragged over broken glass shocking series add to that the next series I watched was wayward pines and that was on par

Watching line of duty atm and I'm really enjoying that as I really don't like British series.

One to look out for ed only seen the trailer but looks good midnight Texas

{Ed001's Note - the trailer for Inhumans looked interesting.}

Yes just had a look does look like one of the better marvel series but suppose that could be because the others have been piss poor

Any good shows anyone can recommend? With the season coming to an end I will have a bit of time to watch TV.

Two ends of the spectrum:

West world (takes a while to get going but is great)

Rick and Morty (fairly well known show but only recently started watching it, funny as!)

{Ed001's Note - West World does look good, I have been meaning to watch it. Thanks I will give that a try. I have seen Rick and Morty a few times it's ok but not something you can have on in the background while editing.}

If you're into tech then you should check out silicon valley. Comedy/drama about what happens when success comes to those least prepared for it. Three seasons of it so it should keep you busy.

{Ed001's Note - I will have a look for that cheers.}

I really enjoyed vikings, the last ship, lucifer and an old one but one I've only recently watched dexter

{Ed001's Note - I have heard of the others, but not the last ship. What is that about?}

Easier to copy and paste but here you go

At the helm of the USS Nathan James en route to the Arctic, Capt. Tom Chandler learns that the destroyer will be in the best possible place -- a circumstance his crew must utilize -- to save humanity from extinction. A virus has wiped out more than half the population since the ship embarked, and despite orders from the U.S. government to return, Chandler -- believing home is now a shadow of itself -- decides the safest place to develop a vaccine is at sea. That task falls mainly to virologist Dr. Rachel Scott, a civilian originally assigned to the Nathan James to study birds. "The Last Ship" is based on a novel by William Brinkley and is executive-produced by filmmaker Michael Bay ("Transformers").

{Ed001's Note - ah ok. Is it new then? Or have I just been in a bubble and missed the show up until now?}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2017 08:29:41
Also another one I like even just for the fight scenes

Into the badlands

{Ed001's Note - I was thinking about trying that one, so I will have to look into it during the summer.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2017 08:31:53
There's 3 seasons of it finished and it's been renewed for a 4th and 5th season

{Ed001's Note - so I have been in a bubble then! That's usual for me, I never really watch TV other than football.}

Just a heads up Dave to not bother watching Dexter after season 4. One of the worst if not worst series finales iv'e ever watched.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jun 2017 16:04:45
Sopranos
Power
24
Prison Break
Lost
Walking Dead (although it's going nowhere)
Wayward pines
Stranger things (got a great 80's movie vibe)

All good shows if you've not watched any Ed.

{Ed001's Note - I hated lost and most of those I tried and didnt get into to be honest mate. But thanks for the suggestions.}

Iron Fist (2017)

Let me start by saying so far have been a if fan of netflixes marvel shows. Jessica jones was solid, Luke cage orginal, and daredevil brilliant (particularly the last season with punisher!) but have tried watching the first episode of this 3 times and haven't finished it once.

Is just bad, dunno how to put it. The main character is unlike able, the plot is slow and worst of all seems more focused on business strategy stuff then martial arts. Sounds silly but with the concept they are working with was hoping it would be more of an action driven show. may try pick it up later but for now can't be bothered really

{Ed001's Note - wow, really that bad?}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2017 18:30:20
TBH yeah. have watched four episodes and can't remember 1 decent fight scene. compared to daredevil which had a fantastic scene where he takes out a gang inside a building in first episode. Which was epic!

Sorry but for the premise of it expected it to outshine the other shows in regards to fight scenes.also is boring and the main character is just so annoying and unlike able you just want to round house him when you see him.shame as thoroughly enjoyed all the other shows

{Ed001's Note - that is gutting, I have been really looking forward to seeing it.}
