    The portrayal of him was uncanny, watched a doc on him recently, just a complete sociopath. He did have a pang of conscience though as he handed himself in, not sure the police would have caught him otherwise.

    I have started watching ‘Dirty John’ on Netflix, it is very, very good.

    Just watched the trailer, as you say, it looks very very good, thanks for the heads up.

    I’ve watched 4 episodes thus far, Christian Slater looks rather different these days.

    I just watched A Time to Kill on Amazon Prime - the first time in ages I've sat through a 2.5 hour film in one go.

    This is a MUST
  9. Just finished 'The Loudest Voice' on SKY, story of Roger Ailes and Fox News, Russell Crowe is very good as Ailes.

    Winter’s Bone has appeared on Netflix - it’s some years since I saw it but I remember being fascinated by it.

    We watched the first 3 episodes of The Wire last night on dvd.

    Not sure what I think, it was okay. Wife liked it, right up her C.S.I. alley.

    Yes, exceptional performance from Crowe; a rather unsavoury tale though.

    You have to persevere, it starts slow but really builds over the first series. End of series one is utterly heartbreaking. Fantastic performances from the whole cast.

    Yes, The Wire takes its time but the five seasons present an unforgettable portrait of a city in crisis, and how that affects characters you get to know and love. Each season focuses on one dimension of the crisis (drug gangs, the port where drugs enter the city, the politicians, the education system, and the media) and the cumulative effect is stunning. I'd rank them, favourite to least favourite, as follows:

    Season 2 (the port)
    Season 4 (education system)
    Season 1 (police and drug gangs)
    season 3 (politicians)
    season 5 (the media)

    Season 5 is marred by somewhat implausble behaviour by one of the main characters, and an element of wish-fulfilment fantasy from David Simon, who used to work for The Baltimore Sun, before he wrote TV drama.

    So, to any waverers, stick with it. It's takes a bit of effort, but the rewards are great.

    webster Listen & enjoy.

    Watched the first episode last night - looks promising.

    Season 5 is definitely the weakest but still compelling.

    The relatively minor characters like Bubbles are so well drawn.

    It is the absolute pinnacle of TV
