Little bit old now I guess, but did anyone watch HyperNormalisation off of iPlayer?

 

Yeah, well worth a watch and most of Adam Curtis' stuff is pretty interesting and there is an artistic quality to the way his docs are presented, even if some of it does feel like a bit of a reach and a sort of public school version of those student 'intellectuals' who've had a few too many biftas.

The Undoing with Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant  is good on Sky Atlantic...

I've been looking forward to this since I saw the trailer, I'm just waiting to have a few to watch in one go. It's from the same writers as Big Little Lies isn't it, and I really enjoyed that too.

How you finding it? I find the more you watch them the funnier they get. Series 1 isn't that good but most of the others are class.

Although series one had the pepper spray incident in Dream Job, I thought that was hilarious! 
Im really enjoying it.

I tune into the first minute or so to see the "headlines" and they weren't funny the last time I watched

Totally agree with that.  After Corona it has been poor and I prefer Googlebox on at the same time it is far more amusing

I enjoy most satirical TV panel shows, with the exception of The Last Leg, which is dire, and I still like HIGNFY. What is lacking is an audience. Last Friday's show wasn't great, I agree.

Gogglebox remains very entertaining and funny. It's a bit Marmite, I understand that but me and Mrs Para both are in tears of laughter watching it.

Paul Merton ( who I generally quite like) 

and his shite dad jokes is really starting to get on my nerves though

I'd quite like to see Merton replaced with James Acaster. Funny, quick witted and satirical.

Or maybe better, Bob Mortimer. A living, breathing jester of a comedian.

How about Lee Mack?

So I finally got round and decided to watch The Blacklist and then finally got all the way the end of season 6 to find out sky have lost the rights to the show. Can someone please let me know if there is anywhere else I can continue to watch it without having to pay for it.

Recently finished the US Office. Took about 6 months to do the 201 episodes. I thought it was great and the final 2 seasons without Steve Carell were probably my favourite. 

Soup you ignorant slut!

 

Pretty sure you are the only living human who prefers post Carel 😁😋

 

The US Office is the best comedy since 2005

Good call on Acaster. It needs someone of that ilk. Merton has looked completely disinterested for about a decade or so now, tbh. Not so sure about Mortimer on HIGNFY, he's utterly mesmerising and perfect on WILTY. Think it's a big gear shift for him as a regular.

 

I've not watched any of this series, think the lack of audience really hurts the show, but I did hear that she show the week before last was very good.
