I heard about this sometime ago on how excellent it is, so I am so glad it made it to BBC 4 and yes this is stella documentary making and does a real deep dive into the factors that made up OJ Simpson's psychology. It is a stretch with something like 7 hours of film making but this is really good.


I thought it was a cracking piece of TV. Fascinating.

Just watched all of Making a Murderer as part of our Netflix binge over the past week or so.

Jeez Louise... it's been a while since I've watched a show that's made me shout at the TV quite that much :lol:

Heard it's good also though apparently it's a bit longer as a series than it really needs to be.

Such is the way of pretty much every tv show these days unfortunately.

Still working through Black Mirror.

Last night watched the episode White Christmas (the one with Jon Hamm), which immediately became my favourite one... for about an hour until we'd finished San Junipero, which left me a near emotional wreck and quickly superceded it.

Damn, this is good telly.

Must watch this stuff again. Saw the first episode with a bunch of cycling people and something about social media where they needed to do it to get out of their lives. Was OK I guess. Oh and the pig fucking PM episode.

The pig fucking episode is a bit of an odd one to start a series with considering the point of it was that there wasn't really a point. Just seemed like satire at the time, but the later episodes have some fantastic dark and grim social commentary. The San Junipero one is one of my favourites alongside Be Right Back and The White Bear.

Such a good show, I flew through it in a week.

F is for Family

Netflix animated series set in the early 70's. Funny as all fuck and utterly irreverent. Definitely won't be everyone but I'm hooked on it now.

Also contains a bizarre amount of nudity.
