The Trip to Greece is great fun. Exactly the same as the other 3 series but set in Greece. Also started watching The Dublin Murders, promising 1st episode so hopefully it will keep that standard up.

Final Episode of The Outsider is recorded and ready for us to watch this evening...

It's been excellent. I just hope they have given it a worthwhile ending - and that we don't just emit yet another meh! (something we've done a few times recently with some less than satisfactory endings)
Well - I actually thought the ending was as good as it could be. All in all - an excellent series - nightmarish, thought-provoking in a 'what-if' sort of way - and very atmospheric. But in truth - may have preferred it to not have been of the Stephen King genre.

Started to watch Inside number 9. Jeez its a bit dark in some episodes but full on slapstick in others.
It's by the two guys who did League of Gentlemen.
See a few previous posts in this thread, it has its champions as IMHO it is the best TV series there has been for a very long time. If you haven't seen any from previous seasons then watch 'The 12 Days of Christine' as it is an utterly flawless 30 minutes of TV https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b05pwfcf/inside-no-9-series-2-2-the-12-days-of-christine . And 'Bernie Clifton's Dressing Room' is not far behind. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b09m61xl/inside-no-9-series-4-2-bernie-cliftons-dressing-room

Re-started The Stranger last night, we'd reached part way through Ep 3 when we stopped as we found it too similar in style to The Outsider. Now that that's done we can restart. And we'll continue with Noughts and Crosses this evening.

I'd say if you watch those 2 after each other then it is as good an hours TV as it gets. I am jealous you will be seeing them for the first time. Enjoy. :)

Had to look that up. Do you mean 'Warning! Warning! Will Robinson! ;)
I quite enjoy watching little snippets of the original LiS on TCM. The theme music is iconic of the time and that with Will, Dr Zachary, Judy, Penny and Robbie trigger fond childhood memories. The special effects and aliens are rather special :)

I watched the first ever episode of Taskmaster last night - recommended by someone on here in the Bad Golf thread - just had to download the UK TV Play app for free and all the episodes are there. Rather amusing and will be a good chuckle to stick on whenever I'm in need of something to watch.

Regarding Inside Number 9 mentioned above, I thought I'd never seen it but I now realise I did watch the first episode a while back, where lots of people were trying to get in the same cupboard. Wasn't a big fan, but then, I've never really liked anything from those writers.
