I've enjoyed season 1 of Halt and Catch Fire:  IMDB 8.4*  The context is PC producer, "Cardiff Electric", (fictional), where its principals struggles with personal and corporate problems.  In season 2 the principal characters move on after the sale of Cardiff -- I plan to see if it sustains my interest.

I sort of stopped watching it in the later part, but not because of lack of interest. Although I think the first season was the best of what I have watched.

Compulsive but far from comfortable viewing Jimmy McGovern's new drama Time is set in a HM prison. Sean Bean plays a teacher serving four years. I am not squeamish but more then once had to look away. This is not an easy watch, not one bit. As I remarked to the missus, placed in that environment I would end it all. Suicide is a fairly common occurrence in prisons, I can now see why!
Sounds like something I'd like. I hope it eventually gets released on a streaming platform in the US.


Currently I'm watching Blackspace and Startup on Netflix, and Mosquito Coast on AppleTV+.

While I'm at it, Line of Duty is one of my all-time favorite shows, too.

     I just obtained a copy of Triumph Of The Nerds.

     

     It must have been nearly 20 years ago that I watched this.

Very well made series of four two-hour episodes interweaving between two timelines of modern Israel and Palestine and the birth of Israel in 1945-8


I see among writer/director Peter Kosminsky's other credits is a series on  young British women being lured to Syria to become ISIS brides. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be available locally:

We’ve just finished watching The Stranger on Netflix. A good fast moving mystery drama with distinctive characters  although we got a bit distracted identifying the locations around the Greater Manchester area. The one remaining mystery is how one character managed to chase someone on foot from Stockport Market Hall to the sidings of the East Lancashire Railway in Bury - it must be at least 20 miles. :-\

Murdoch Mysteries - after many months, we just finished the 14th season of the Murdoch Mysteries, the last episode leaving much 'up in the air'!  The series has been renewed for Season 15 w/ 24-episodes planned (I guess to make up for COVID) and will first air on Sept 13 this year - now we watched this series on our subscription Acorn TV - not sure if this will continue for a 'new' season?  Dave :)

You’re ahead of me, Dave  ;D. I’m still waiting to see season 14 if and when it appears on Netflix.

Hi André - we watched the show on Acorn TV; the pic I left in my last post stated that the 15th season will premiere on CBC, so hope that Acorn TV will stream the new series?  Dave :)
