    Hey everybody :)

    I was looking through the forums (and via Google too) if there are some movie/tv shows/series dedicated topics, but I didn't find results.
    Thought would be great to have a corner for recommendations and discussions :)

    I never liked watching series, because I get easily hooked and addicted and sad it's over in the end. But in the last 2-3 years I watched a few great ones - to catch up on what I missed or to see why some of the new ones are so popular. The ones I liked are True Detective (first season), Stranger Things, Devious Maids (this one is to satisfy that soap opera girly side of me), Taboo, Modern Family ('cause Sofia Vergara is so funny), but in the top 3 are:

    - Breaking Bad - although serious criminals, you can't help but adore Mr White and Jessie. Other characters are amazing too
    - Black Mirror - this is pure genius for me. Showing how thin is a line between usage of modern technology and the terrible consequences it can brought us.
    - Young Pope - Jude Law at his best! Epic character.

    I'm currently on Peaky Blinders and although I thought this one is not so for me, I really like it!

    Important note - I'm in the 0.00001% of the world population who is not into GOT :D

    Which ones would you recommend or you are addicted to? :)

    Sure we just had a thread like this recently :what:

    Apart from the aforementioned shows such as Breaking Bad etc it's quite hard to find ones near that quality where everything just 'gels'.

    Most impressive recent series was Babylon Berlin. Like others here I like to binge-watch too :D

    Mad Men recently, pretty good stuff. Haven't seen Black Mirror, it sounds intriguing.....

    There's also a hell of a lot mediocre, goofy crap that somehow can't be put down. eg The Blacklist, Blindspot (ridiculous), Ray Donovan (at the point of self-parody), Vikings (suspend your disbelief and it becomes quite good), Riviera - with that bird from Bourne Identity going all Miss Marple on people's ass & Iwan Rheon being Ramsey Bolton in everything he does.

    Actually come to think of it, Legion was pretty outstanding and the pilot episode has to be amongst the best openers in TV history.

    Britannia was on Sky recently, after all the build-up and hype. It was the probably worst series I've ever seen, but hey at least it's got Gareth from the Office in it :laugh:

    The absolutely banal writing takes the cake, with the array of modern words thrown in there, such as eg 'wanker', amongst others. It's truly, truly bad.

    Right now though, my partner's put on some ITV 2 background fodder, the greatest series ever : You Only Live Twice. Some awful Golden Girls rip-off. Now that's entertainment :eek:

    Oops sorry then, I really couldn't find it :(

    Believe me, Black Mirror is a masterpiece! Each episode is a story for itself, so you don't even have to watch them by an order. It left strong effect on me, especially the last season and episodes called "Black Museum" and "Metalhead".
    When I think about series, I notice that I mostly enjoy in ones coming from the UK :D

    have Black Mirror DLED but haven't attacked it yet...waiting for spring so I can just chuck the monsters (dogs) outdoors to enjoy in peace without pausing an episode every 5 minutes.
    newer fare I'm digging is Orville and Discovery.

    I enjoy rhe water cooler fare like Vikings, Westworld and GoT.
    Looking forward to season 2 of American Gods but a bit nervous theyre taking it in a wholly new direction.

    Dragons Den (CA) and Shark Tank are good dinner fare.

    I kinda struggled with American Gods but it started warming up near the end...As ashamed as I am, the last series i binge watched was Troll Hunters (the slot plays awful)

    The Americans (oh those pesky Russians, even in 2018), Sneaky Pete have also been known to be consumed in a day.

    it was rather pokey. Mind you the book while a fun read was light so it definirely requires a lot of filler
    I'm excited to see how they handle Good Omens

    Loved Vikings too:)

    My favourites are French crime series Engrenages, very compelling and excellent cast and
    Gomorrah about organized crime in Naples - brutal.

    Started watching Dexter (recommended to me years ago) last month, On season 7 already, love it lol.

    Other than that, watched Prison Break thru at least 5 times (apart from season 5 which was rubbish) Breaking Bad 2-3 times and TWD couple of times.

    Seems sad but watching em from the start again you pick up on so much you missed 1st time around and also makes for easy viewing when absolutely knackered lol :oops:

    And Jimmy Smits being in it!

    Though the John Lithgow season was great :thumbsup:
