We’re re working our way through Game of Thrones. I’m getting close to Battle of the Bastards but forget which season am in...

Already rewatched series 1 and 2 of Robin of Sherwood and a little of series 3.

Also found an hilarious documentary about 1960s’ pagans on YouTube which has Thatcher lookalikes prancing around in the nude (not teatime viewing):

Gene, enjoyed them both when they were shown. My sister liked Life on Mars but couldn't get into Ashes to Ashes. Now watching Kirstie crafty tv show, as my missus is sowing up hospital scrubs. Have been binge watching Designated Survivor, quite good.
Out of the two I preferred LOM to Ashes, the chemistry between Hunt and Tyler were far superior to Hunt and Alex in Ashes. The 70s soundtrack aswell of course?!
Ashes turned into a parody of itself in the later series imo.

But according to the writer's on twitter a new and final series of LOM is in the works to tie up all the loose ends.

I loved LOM and A2A, but it did have the same ending as Lost.

Probably a disconnect between US and Brit tv...but since I have cable there is simply too much to watch....I watch several regular tv series like Blacklist , Prodigal Son, Supernatural, ,,, as well as 'pay tv' shows on HBO, SHO ,and Netflix: Longmire, Stranger Things, Penny Dreadful (new one has started),....

Have started The Expanse and The Man In The High Castle this week - both look very promising after the first episode (yes I know they've been around a while, I have a huge backlog).

I really enjoyed the man in the high castle. It veers away from the book quite quickly. It almost feels a shame it has finished but at the same time it needed to.
The Expanse is also worth it.

I’m not really watching much TV right now as I have to be ‘at work’ upstairs for a lot of the day. I make time for Wheeler Dealers as I love watching them fix old cars but I loathe, despise and hate Nationwide’s advertising campaign that springs up in the breaks. You know the ones where ordinary people spout their sentimental amateur doggerel. Far from creating a warm, fuzzy feeling towards this financial business, it leaves me shouting ‘Just look after the sodding money’ at the screen.

Homeland - last episode ever last night - wow! Going out with style.

Killing Eve - really is mainly dark comedy now.

The Act - a case of Munchasen's By Proxy.

Devs - really is great SF.

The Black List - latest season off yo a great start with Reddington kidnapped.

Next on my To Watch list - Phantom Of The Paradise, followed by Prehistoric Women.
Phantom of the Paradise! Is that because I mentioned it a few weeks ago, or are you simply a man of taste and discernment?

Like everyone else, I like nothing more than watching a monkey slap a squirrel. But I also watch the ’back of TV’ so what do you think the foley artists are using for the sound effects on this clip? Sounds like celery on the bottom to me. Not that I’m an expert you understand.

Broadcasting from the moon...

I bought Phantom Of The Paradise in the Dark Times Before Lockdown, and I have watched most things in mt DVD/Blu Ray collection. Being a Man Of Taste and Refinement, I will be watching this rather than another damn cooking show...

Interesting interview with a BBC chappie in the paper the other day saying that our TV habits have changed in the last few weeks, a lot more people are gathering to watch stuff on TV as families or friends rather than sitting alone with tablets or phones (assuming you don't live alone anyway). And the big hit of the virus season has been quizzes, Brits love testing our general knowledge, apparently (or maybe just like showing off to whoever's in the room that they know stuff). Mastermind Final on Monday! I'm betting (not actually betting) on the Irish guy with the beard.

Wooh yeah. That was good Homeland. In the end it's all about saul and carrie. And a proper ending. (And I like to think that yevgeny is oleg from the americans, son).

I should really love Killing Eve. But I don't. Not one character is redeeming in any way.

I'm currently working through The Good Place s4.

Hey, maybe I should have placed that Mastermind bet after all. Can you bet on TV quizzes? @Swifty would have got all the winner's specialist subject answers right, I suspect, as the resident Kevin Smith expert.

What I love about Killing Eve is that it confirms your suspicions that behind the scenes civilisation is kept ticking over by some pretty nasty acts. Plus the cast is superb, I like that the characters are all flawed because it makes things more interesting. There are some redeeming folks in it - Gemma Whelan plays a thoroughly decent person who cannot understand her mother's defence mechanisms bred from years in the service. Though one nice guy in it just bought the farm this week (so to speak).

Someone chose the films of Kevin Smith on Mastermind as their specialist subject?

Yup, he did the "View Askewniverse" - worth it to hear John Humphrys read out the questions about Jay and Silent Bob!
