    Hi!

    Inspired by "Have you seen any good films lately" started by I luv cats - let's talk TV series and boxed sets!

    Just starting on
    C4 -Fargo , season 2. Loved the first and so far it's matching.
    C4 - Homeland Season 5 - getting a bit samey and ott
    C4 - The Returned Season 2 - brilliant

    out on disc I had Fortitude, which I found disappointing, could have been good

    On AZ prime watching at the moment: Mad Men and Parks and Recreation Seasons 2

    Let's hear what you liked and also what not , I hope this thread is going to be as busy as the films!

    After I've finished Bloodline I'm going to watch Orange Is The New Black, largely on the recommendation of a nurse yesterday.

    anyone else watching the channel 4 drama - National Treasure? Superb casting - Julie Walters, Robbie Coltrane . There was a scene in episode 2 between the daughter and Julie Walters - I cant put into words how gripping those few moments were - it was brilliant acting from both sides.

    I'm recording it but really looking forward to watching it. It's now got to the point I can't watch individual episodes any longer otherwise I completely forget what happened in the previous one. I have to "binge watch" the entire season over as few days as possible. I've just, this afternoon, finished Victoria which I started watching on Monday.

    I watched this and thought it was very well done. I especially liked the character of the daughter - funny but fragile.

    I'm currently working my way through the second series of Homeland and wishing they would just get rid of Brody. Enjoyable, though, an episode or two in the evenings.

    Where has Ripper Street 2 & 3 disappeared to on Prime?




    Don't worry, I found them after doing a "search". They just weren't appearing in my watchlist or any of the other promoted sections, only Ripper 5.

    Watched Black Mirror recently. Cant recommend this British series enough. Clever stories many of which are set in the future, which they do very well. Its not a series as such as they are all different stories.

    I enjoyed a pilot episode of The Tick on prime video. Hoping they continue as a series. It's great.

    Am gutted. No UK broadcaster has picked up 3rd season of How to get away with murder.

    Does anyone know where I can find Love/Hate series 4&5 please?

    I only managed to watch 1-3 on Spike or 5 star a few months ago.

    I'm up to episode 5 of an American show called Designated Survivor. Its about a man played by Kiefer Sutherland who becomes president after a terror attack wipes out the whole of the senate.
    Enjoying it so far, its got a 8.1 rating on IMDB.

    Anyone else watching The Code? I loved season 1 and am catching up with season 2 before it disappears from BBC iplayer.
    I'm not so much enjoying any last season, be it Ripper Street or Parks & Recreation. The energy's gone when things are winding down...
