The Strain was complete pish but I did really enjoy it's silliness. I'm genuinely amazed it lasted as long as it did.

Watched the first episode of American Gods, not sure what to make of it really. It's definitely very stylistic and looks amazing but something is a bit off. I'll keep watching to see how it goes. I'd also recommend reading the book before watching, otherwise you'd be very lost.

Fuck sake. I was actually rather fond of The Strain myself.

OJ: Made in America

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.

Need more fibre!

Anybody watch The Jinx, the story about the US billionaire who's wife went missing in the 70s (trying to avoid spoilers here!) - absolutely gripping stuff. Highly recommended.

Black Mirror is fantastic. So grim and it doesn't let up at all for pretty much every season.

Yeah, indeed. Just watched the second episode (cycling for credits), having watched the PM one last night, and while that was grimly amusing I'd say I enjoyed the second more. But then dystopian stuff always interests me. Even though I saw the ending coming, as a whole it still punched you in the stomach.

Good stuff.

It's a great series. Is it on netflix or prime? Or did you just buy a box set somewhere?

Every couple of years I dust off the box sets and watch them all again. Cracking show.

Box set was going cheap in CEX.

Ah right. Was hoping it might have popped up on one of the paid stream sites. Glad your enjoying it though it's a good one.

Same. I would have liked to have seen what happened to the world after the bomb.
