Did anyone watch the first episode of White House Farm? I thought it started off pretty slowly, but will stick with it until the next episode.

This is a notorious local event. So we'll probably binge on this at some point.

It was pretty well done I thought, but I hope Stephen Graham isn't going to feature too much as his accent was distractingly rotten.

Did you watch Deadwater Fell? Based on the first episode it is going to be REALLY GOOD.

No, I haven’t came across that at all? I shall investigate this afternoon.

THE TRIAL OF CHISTINE KEELER :disco:

Although Mandy R-D is portrayed as being much more GENERALLY FABULOUS

I actually just finished binge-watching all six season of The 100. I don't think there's a thread for it on moopy. Anyway, it's ridiculous. But very addictive. But still ludicrous in places.

did we know there's a new season of will and grace? the final 11th. i only found out last night, saw the first episode and realised why. granted it's all a bit rubbish now but debra messing was absolutely diabolical.

one of my friends tricked me into giving messiah a go, like homeland it is, she said. i want to see where the story goes but it's just so dull and bland.

Oh MANDS is much more fun than 'BABY GIRL'. That dreadful prison officer who dared to whip off her lashes though...

I watched the last three episodes of The Deuce last night. The finale got quite a bit of criticism and I can see the arguments but it still had me all :( and the previous episode was a brutal shock. I loved Melissa and Reg's story too.

Currently watching Shrill and I've picked up the third season of The Man in the High Castle after rather too long.

The Duece finale got me teary eyed too. Why did it get criticisim? The show is very good and so underrated, with barely any notable nominees.

I don't think we ever got season 10 in the UK.

The ageing up and focus on James Franco in the extended closing sequence at the perceived expense of the female characters basically.

I think I saw something about how the viewership halved and then halved again between seasons but at least they got to tell the whole story they planned. So many good performances too, Gyllenhaal was outstanding.

Well unfortunately Watchmen has been taken off the air faster than Ruth Langsford swearing at Philip Schofield, and by episode 5 it was getting good indeed.

I'm watching Dracula now. It's a shame the Count wasn't more of a gym rat.

People really complain about anything nowadays. I thought it was an excellent ending.

Watching this new HBO comedy, Avenue 5, by same guy who did Veep. I don’t know if it’s me or if it’s one of the worst shows ever. Nothing about it is remotely funny.

Avenue 5 is incredibly underwhelming. Apparently it picks up, but it feels incredibly weak so far, considering the quality of his past work.

I just binged 5 episodes in a row of Netflix’s Project Runway type show called Next in Fashion. I love a good reality show that is released all at once.

finished dracula yesterday. agreed with the sentiments here - the first part was great! loved it so much - dolly wells was everything. the third went too far into black mirror territory and really finished it off on a bit of a disappointing note. shame!

Was on tenterhooks from start to finish tbh. Often historical series fall flat for me because they have to do a lot of exposition to the viewer and it becomes silly (like one epidemiologist explaining to another how a virus works in The Hot Zone :D) but this had very little of that. It was also 'dramatized' just enough.

On the hand I’m loving The Outsider. It’s the right mix of detective and horror and Cynthia Errivo is just so good in it.

Yes, I'm loving it and she is the star turn.

I've cracked on with season 2 of Sex Education which is still fun to watch and Anderson is a bomb. where in the UK is it set? it looks gorgeous

I'm very confused though that Maeve is not Margot Robbie in real life. what is this devilry!

There was a couple of ass shots in the first episode.

I’m three episodes in and I don’t really know what to think, it’s a strange show.

i gave up on the young pope midway throughs season 1 for some reason. thought it was pretty great. i keep meaning to go back to it.

anyway, finished bojack horseman and what a final run. i imagine it would easily make my top 10 favourite shows of all time. everyone watch it!

I watched this over 4 nights. Really quite enjoyable.

Although Tan and Alexa's bits to camera at the end of each episode irritated me.

It is like nothing else on telly, I enjoy it very much. That mole deserves an acting award of its own. I just have the last episode of the follow up series to watch.

Jude Law has high levels of smugface but he has undoubtedly kept in good nick.

I've made it through 6 episodes of The Stranger. It seems rather hard to follow, but I've made it this far.
