Just watched the first episode of Get Shorty.
Very good can recommend it.
Chris O Dowd is very good as the lead.
And you can binge watch all ten episodes on Sky

Just finished Manhunt:Unabomber on Netflix and really enjoyed it, Without giving too much away, they caught him with the help of linguistics. I never knew the origin of the phrase "To have your cake and eat it".....

Very good.
The acting from the main characters was excellent.
I also recommend the Waco miniseries which I watched around the same time.
Both cases are linked in a way

A Very English Scandal. Just outstanding in every way - writing, acting, direction, all superb. And for those of us old enough to remember the Thorpe trial and the sensation it caused, the blackly farcical tone is spot-on.
Just seen the first episode, and surely I can't be the only one thinking "Just sort out his National Insurance card!"

Also, it's on the iPlayer as series 1. Am I to assume that there will be further series of this?

Not with the same protagonists but I'm sure there are other ' very English scandals ' the makers could choose

After today's news, I think I will be working through Anthony Bourdain's past work for some time...

Devastated.

I watched the first two episodes of the new series of Flowers last night. I enjoyed the first series, but did not enjoy these. Maybe I would have benefited from rewatching the first series because I couldn't remember exactly what went on, but I found it incoherent and disjointed. Just rubbish basically. I'll see it through anyway, but I'm not expecting wonders.

I kind of enjoyed season five of Arrested Development even though I didn't laugh all that much. What's the story with the season four remix? Is it much different to the original?

Watching The Sinner on Netflix. Episode 3 and it's pretty good.

Vice Principals is a lot of fun if you've been missing Kenny Powers.

Evil Genius is excellent if you enjoy Making/Jinx etc. I hear Staircase is too but not doing that yet.

Re-watching Westworld S1 (with Heather this time) before starting S2. Fine example of a series worth re-watching.
