"Killing Eve S2" on BBC Not finished it yet .

"Chernobyl" on Now TV .  Well worth watching top drawer acting 

"When they see us" on Netflix.  Well worth watching top drawer acting

Yes, I liked it. Very prescient.

Bond's Rory Kinnear in it of course, he's great but the entire cast is.

That said, it is better watching it at the time than looking back on it, and it's more relevant to us Brits, as it deals with the whole Brexit thing or seems to, and a Europe meltdown.

I suspect it's because NRK headquarters is in Oslo. In the east they have an inland climate with not much rain. My theory is the bosses sit in their offices looking at the sun, thinking:"No-one is inside watching TV in this fine weather, let's save money by showing re-runs and programs about gardening! Meanwhile on the west coast, rain is the norm  ajb007/crap

I've found an old documentary series about the Bartlett presidency (he was before Obama, right?) called "The West Wing". I put it on after watching the news if it featured the current president. I find it works even better than breathing into a paper bag.  ajb007/biggrin

Year of the Rabbit ( Channel 4 )
A very funny Victorian detective comedy series, set in olde London town
but very much reflecting modern life.  ajb007/biggrin

Just finished the box set...loved it...Matt Berry is his usual tour-de-force and Paul Kaye is on top ‘scenery chewing’ form...it’s an absolute blast!

I'm really enjoying the remake of Battlestar Galactica, I remember when this was first
on. I watched a few episodes but didn't like it compared to the old 1978 version, but
watching this on Amazon prime, I'm really in to it. I love the  Dark grittiness of it. With
a fantastic cast.

I'm 3 episodes in to the Pennyworth series that delves in to the backstory of the man who would later go on to be Thomas / Bruce Wayne's butler.  Really enjoyable so far - nicely staged, very well acted & Paloma Faith (of all people) is a revelation!  A well recommended watch imo ajb007/martini

I know this is an old show but, I've started watching Travelers on Netflix.
It's a very good Time traveler saving the future premise.
