    I did feel that the end felt like The End, and was surprised to read after watching series seven that they’d filmed series eight back in April/May...

    That's a drinking game to get you pissed! Even Laure gave someone a slap, it's obviously contagious.

    The last series of The Man From Newcastle was pretty dull.

    Is this better?

    New series of The Expanse coming soon!

    that's the series in which they try to cast as many shampoo models as possible to save a bit of money an acting, right? wasn't it cancelled in after season 2?

    As far as I'm aware they're not available to stream from Nexflix or Prime here in the UK, though series 1-6 can be bought from Apple for £44 - that's tempting even though the first three series are only standard definition not HD.

    I enjoyed that too - can't remember if it was on Prime or Netflix. Currently watching Season 1 of Dark.

    I watched the first episode of "Comrade Detective" on Amazon Prime, a parody of a Romanian cop show with added propaganda. It almost falls into the 'so bad it's good' category with some good lines such as when they meet the American ambassador who is a leggy blonde with a huge split up her skirt and one asks "Why is she dressed like a prostitute"? the other says " She is a capitalist so she must be going out to exploit someone"
    It may not be for everyone but it does have it's moments

    The Laundromat with Streep, Oldman, and Banderos is an excellent Soderburgh film, based on true events and about a pair of lawyers (Olman and Banderas) who swindle insurance thru shell companies in Panama. Streep is swindled and disgruntled old lady.

    On Netflix.

    madmike I feel much better now, I really do...

    +1 for Spiral. I think that lawyer bloke is in love with her, or is she in love with her cell mate? Series 8 will tell us hopefully.

    Tried that but couldn't get on with the obvious set up scenes at the beginning.

    Watched the Spy, a series with Sacha Baron Cohen playing an Israeli spy, very well acted and totally straight too. Mind you I never saw any of his comedy stuff.

    I very much liked this series, I’d not known it was non-comedy until I’d finished the first episode and I’d said to my mate, well, it must be the biggest build up to a funny scene or.....he stepped in and said it’s not a comedy, aaahhh, that explains it!

    Nonetheless I really liked it, gets a recommendation from me.

    No. That's the series that is based on a proper SF book series rather than the usual stuff written by a soap writer who fancies portraying a bit of robot sex.

    i can accept/contemplate that the books are decent enough, but the acting was unbearable, not to mention the guy with the annoying 1930 detective hat/affectations. i gave up after s1. does it get better?

    If you didn't like Series 1 then I very much doubt you'll like the rest of it. FWIW I think it's well above average but each to their own.

    For you, probably not.
