Let's have a TV shows thread.

The guy on the pottery show on C4 now. Must be the least convincing comb over in history. It'd be more believable if he'd drew the hair on with a felt pen.

Started watching The Wire. HBO knocked it out the park in the 2000s 

Best show I've ever watched. Sad when it finished and feel like I wanna watch it again and again. It's not slick, edgy or any of that other bullshit that shows are now. It's so well written it doesn't need to be.

I’ve been rewatching in lockdown. The writing is superb and the more I read into the background of it is really interesting. 
 

A lot say it’s dated. Slightly the case for the first series. Second series is a drag but Series 3 & 4 are utter perfection

I watched The Sopranos last year and it'll take a while to get through The Wire. Whatever I watch after those two will be a step down and a half

Really want to watch The Wire but put off by people saying how shit a couple of the seasons are.

I’d really encourage you to watch it all anyway mate.

The ‘shit’ couple of seasons are still excellent in comparison to other stuff on TV.
The problem is they set the bar so high to begin with.
The Wire is still the second best series I’ve ever watched.

Things I've watched recently on Netflix.

 

Spy with Baron Sacha Cohen 7/10. True story, Well written, shame about some of the acting.

 

Destroyer with Nicole Kidman 8/10 Kidman is brilliant in this just wish we'd seen more of the brilliant Toby Kebbell 

 

Hold the Dark 8/10 Some of the scenes in this are bloody churning. 

 

Falling Down 10/10 First watched this movie over 25 years ago and thought it average at best but after watching it again for me it's a masterpiece.

 

The Devil's Own. 8/10 Another film that's gotten better with age.

Falling Down is one of my all time favourite films, I've watched it countless times and it never gets old for me

The Night Manager was excellent, binged it in just over a day.

Whose that Steve Wonder? Series 2 is a drag but still finely acted and written
