Finished Harlan Coben's "The Stranger" last night on Netflix. Decent but found it not as edge of seat and multi-threaded as "Safe".

Thanks for the comment, Papy. Safe was a cobweb of intrigues, deceits and false leads. A real thriller.

Right now: finished watching season I of Hinterland. I like the format of one full story per 75 minute episode. My favourite character is DI Mared Rhys. Will start season 2 tonight or tomorrow.

Excellent André, Hinterland is an absolute corker in its own different slow style.

Watching this British TV series again:



"The plot centers around a graphic novel called The Utopia Experiments. It is rumoured to have predicted some disastrous epidemics (like BSE) in the past. There is an unpublished sequel which contains even more pertinent information for the survival of humankind. Various groups and people want this manuscript, some to find out the hidden truths in it, others to cover up conspiracies and secret identities." (Wikipedia)

The best TV series I have watched in some time, with a superb OST if you like electronic music.  :)

I'm watching a documentary series on WWI called "Apocalypse".  It is extremely cursory, and huge events only get a couple of minutes. I am far from a WWI scholar, but feel like I know more about the events from the little I remember from previous reading.

 BUT, the series has incredible archival footage, which has all been colorized.  I am opposed to colorization of old movies, in general, but in this case it is stunningly effective.  It is like a time machine. 
It's all good...

How to get Away with Murder - seasons 1,2,3.

Very soap opera-like, implausible at the best of times but entertaining. Absolute pants...but entertaining...won't bother with seasons 4&5.

Watching the last season of Better Call Saul each week as well. As good as ever.

Will start shortly the new 3rd season of Ozark being released today. I really enjoyed the first two.

One of my all time favorite series, I was thoroughly disappointed when it was cancelled. Or that the Fincher remake didn't come to fruition.

Should not post here as not TV but have become addicted to "The Great War" on YouTube. A day by day progression of how WW1 unfolded. With the aid of maps and film the presenter - a title not giving him full justice - brilliantly educates. Absolutely ideal for young adults unable to attend school/college.

I was hugely disappointed too. But I didn't know about the Fincher's project: It had been great.

Maybe someday Netflix will do something about, as they already did with "The Killing" and "Arrested Development."

Over the years, I have also profoundly lamented the abrupt cancellation of "The Hour," a superb British TV series (BBC 2).  :)

Finished up Star Trek: Picard.  Meh.  Frittered away what little promise it might have had.

Better Call Saul, season 5.  Still a great show.

Westworld, season 3.  So far, much better than the unnecessarily confusing season 2.

I thought I'd check out Devs later.

Been focusing on a couple of sci fi series, both oldies:

LEXX, (1996) ...  I rate this 8/10;  IMDB 7.3.

A delightfully imaginative and eccentric 4-season series with a cult following.  I viewed this on TV back the day and am now viewing Season 1 thanks to borrowed resources.

I'm also watching ...

Andromeda, (2000) ... I rate this 7/10;  IMDB 6.6

This series was rather more banal than Lexx, (above), but still an entertaining 5-season,  101 episode servies.  Basically it was a 1950s space opera updated to the early 21st century (and better for it).  I'm watching on Prime Video.

I have to say one of the things I like best about was the space ship's AI android 'avatar' character, Romie, played by the petite but very beautiful, Lexa Doig.

Started watching Rake yesterday. Season 1, episode 1. I almost turned it off after 20 minutes, but kept watching. In the end it was okay. Not sure if I’ll take to it. I’ll watch another couple of episodes. Might be worth it.
