Snowpiercer off to a good start. first two episodes on Netflix, new episode every Monday. Murder on the snow express. A former homicide detective is brought from the Tail to investigate. Pretty violent. The Train is portrayed even better than in the film. Allegories about class nature of society.

Is it a sequel/prequel to the movie or a standalone thing?

Epstein - Netflix. Only watched episode 1 so far, but it's fascinating.

They made it into a series?

For years I've been telling people that Rowland Rivron once had a chat show where he and his guests floated in the River Thames and no- one's believed me- now I've found proof:

Before shagging Mr Cadbury's Parrot

I absolutely love and am addicted to Mini-Eggs. I can eat other brands too. There's something about the size and shape and the crispy shell. I like a good shell but M&M's can p*ss off. They just taste weird. Minstrels are divine, Smarties at a push (although they don't taste like they used to).

"Nestle releases new Smarties tube with just one flavour after receiving '500 requests a day' (the one that tastes of oranges apparently)

Nestle know what they can do with their tubes .. except it's only available from Asda in 150g bags.

Yes, I used to watch that, it was on late night Channel 4. Wendy James was a guest and he so impressed her that they went out for a while, I think.

Watching Upload on Amazon Prime, Sci Fi comedy about a digital afterlife - it's quite good.
(OK, I've just watched nine episodes in a sitting and only stopped 'cos I need a wee).

Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons. Just watched the episode where Cap is asked to resign from Spectrum for running up gambling debts and takes to drinking on his own in a pub and snapping at the barman. Yes, really.

Inhuman Resources: Eric Cantona plays a frormer HR Manager now reduced to taking jobs where he's exploited, he headbutts a manager who kicks him but he gets into trouble. Cantona headbutts a lot of people in this series. He's offered a job where he'll be an interrogator in a false hostage situation. then things begin to jump the shark. Some great episodes - 9/10; overall 8/10. On Netflix.

I like a laugh.
I have a fairly well developed funnybone.
I can thoroughly recommend "Comedians - In cars - Getting Coffee"
It's on Netflix and it is Jerry Seinfeld, who in each episode, picks up a comedian, usually in a lovely classic car, for a drive somewhere to get coffee.
It's very gentle. Obviously mostly US based but there are some Brits too.
Each episode is about 15- 20 minutes long. There are many episodes.
Well worth a watch.
Some people are unknown in the UK but they are still entertaining.

I read the original French novel a couple of years ago.
Had to suspend my disbelief a fair bit at the implausible action and twists, but found it quite enjoyable nonetheless. Had no idea they had turned it into a TV series. Will have to check it out.

Wish Sapphire and Steel was on a bit earlier, I've got work in the morning. Those Forces TV announcers do seem to have a soft spot for Comely Lumley.

I'm getting into it now. 3 episodes in, it's my last thing at night before bedtime watch.
Strays towards political preachiness at times, but still quite fun.
My favourite character is the brassy Northern woman in the fur coat, played by Alison Wright.

I'm watching the re-runs of Sapphire and Steel - it records on my 'tivo' box so the timing isn't an issue.
Quite dark for an early evening 80s show really.

Watching You've Been Framed, which started to get funny after they employed Harry Hill to do the voiceover in his wonderful surreal absurdist nonsequeterial way. Okay, it isn't highbrow TV and with a lot of the clips they show you start to get a suspicion that a certain amount of staging is going on. But the ones that are either spontaneous, or else really well acted, can be funny! (you can have far too much of other peoples' snotty brat kids being disgusting and oozing bodily secretions, though)

Love it when the arsey kids and teenagers play up for the camera and end up in A & E :D
