As we have a seemingly dedicated music thread, I’m gonna start one for TV & Movies…
Now, we all know the classics, but anybody got anything slightly outside the box worth mentioning?
That “DARK” in Netflix (I think it was Goosey!) certainly fits the bill… up to Season 2 and I’m still not sure what is going on… but in a good way. 🙂22nd March 2020 at 12:17 pm #91320sean the sailorParticipant402 pts
Has anyone watched better called Saul? Is it any good?
Very rare I watch films these days. Did watch true romance a few weeks ago though. It was excellent.
Few good documentaries on Netflix. One about joe exotic at the minute who owns a load of tigers
Don’t fuck with cats is very good.
The pharmacist is mind blowing about prescription drugs.
Aaron Hernandez story is fascinating
Did people like the joker? I still haven’t watched it22nd March 2020 at 2:53 pm #91379
I actually like watching old Black and white films, some make me laugh when I am not supposed to!!!! There are some good ones. I have a large library of CD and an Apple Library These are filled with a lot of action films, Westerns and crime thrillers. I don not go for box sets but receive them as presents, The last was Judge John Deed which I really like and the PACIFIC re WW222nd March 2020 at 2:54 pm #91380
PS…also have a big collection of musicals…..just for the music, which have brilliant orchestrations22nd March 2020 at 3:00 pm #91381maverick1973Participant580 pts
I really liked a documentary about Bill Gates,what a legend! Down to earth and on his hols he spends time reading,walking,and listening to music.22nd March 2020 at 3:02 pm #91382
I’ve just watched ‘Sunderland till I die’ available on Netflix. For anyone who needs their football fix, I can well recommend it. 10 episodes and it’s just a car crash and a perfect example of how not to run a football club. It’s brilliant…and I believe there is a 2nd series coming out in a week or two.22nd March 2020 at 3:11 pm #91384maverick1973Participant580 pts

Can I also put a shout in for Succession, an American TV series.23rd March 2020 at 6:47 am #91796EditorKeymaster462 pts
Sean, Better Call Saul is quite a poor series judged as a standalone TV series but I’ve quite enjoyed it as a continuation of the Breaking Bad world. Lots of subtle references to things from the main series and more and more character overlaps coming into it now. I’ll keep watching it but wouldn’t lose any sleep over missing it.
Keep meaning to watch Sunderland till I die.23rd March 2020 at 8:44 am #91876threepsParticipant163 pts
Just finished The Caliphate on Netflix, thought it was one of the best series I’ve seen recently. Its setting alternates between Stockholm and the Syrian city of Raqqa. It’s a very hard hitting and highly believable story of western muslims and ISIS, with some young girls wanting to join and a woman wanting to escape.
Probably not to everyone’s taste and avoid if you want a feel good series!23rd March 2020 at 10:56 am #91962
threes…I had intended watching it but with all the doom and gloom around us at the moment wanted something I actually enjoyed for the acting and put a smile on my face…Last tango in Halifax…I know it is another dysfunctional family but with quiet Northern humour. I cannot see where the story line could go after two series though unfortunately23rd March 2020 at 2:02 pm #92067We’reTheParkLaneParticipant31 pts
Sean, great shout with “Don’t fxxx with cats ” & Hightown ” Sunderland till I die” both well worth watching.
” Chernobyl” & “The Looming Tower” are musts to watch.
Thanks for the heads up on “The Pharmacist” and “The Caliphate” their my next to watch .23rd March 2020 at 2:09 pm #92068nine nine nineModerator878 pts
Anyone with an interest in F1 Rush is on Netflix which covers the battle between Lauda and Hunt including the terrible accident to Lauda. Decent watch if you’re an F1 fan.
I recorded the Maradona film last week too.23rd March 2020 at 4:44 pm #92074
Rush is a really good film24th March 2020 at 8:50 am #92088steveosnakeeyeParticipant256 pts
ive gone old school as i never got to finish off GoT so im re aquainting myself with Dragon Tits to finally finish it off (yes i know the ending will nager me!!)24th March 2020 at 9:43 am #92093
We all finished off to Dragontits…24th March 2020 at 9:45 am #92094
Just finished Sunderland Til I Do, enjoyed that a lot, when does Season 2 come out?
Oh, and what a bell-end Rodwell is… sitting out your contract is one thing, after all the club gave it to him and I can see his point in a roundabout way, but sitting out the matches as well???24th March 2020 at 11:39 am #92099
Rodwell story is truly strange. When City bought him, I think it was his first game when he passed the ball to a opponent who went on and scored. I thought what have we bought? In fairness, he did show glimpses of a really good player but he was not going to get anywhere in the City team of that time, who were no great shakes, but useful Sometimes things do not work out as intended
