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.

The Fall on Amazon. Oldish show set in Belfast. Powerful, spooky and Gillian Anderson confirms again just how watchable she is, a class act. Nearly finished series 1 and we are completely gripped by it.

As a side issue, very funny seeing future adult cast members of Derry Girls looking young. The Mother Superior draws a gasp every time. Maybe by the end of series 2 I'll have got used to it.

I watched The Fall when it was on BBC at the time. Agree it was very good and Gillian Anderson was superb, got a little silly at times in series 3 but still eminently watchable.

Kingdom on Netflix. Whether a zombie series is comfortable viewing right now I am not sure but this is a good one. It is S.Korean, with subtitles but it is excellent viewing. Series 2 has just started.

Give another few a go, worth it.

I just watched the first two .
Apart from them both Having different identities before becoming cops I havn't got a clue what's going on.
The sound seems muted I can't understand most of what they are saying.
Just to say SPOILER ALERT for THE DUBLIN MURDERS if you want to watch it, but to be honest don't. Agree that at times the sound combined with accents made it hard to follow. To be honest am disappointing, started well but then just got silly. I know it was fusing 2 of the same authors books together but when you think back a lot of things kind of didn't make sense (so Cassie has an imaginary friend/twin when she is young who then happens to come to life and looks exactly like her but is then murdered, why was Adam occasionally looking like he was changing into a werewolf with all the shoulder spasms??). Could not work out if there was supposed to be a slight supernatural undercurrent to it or just rubbish storytelling.

Also was royally razzed off that the main story line was not tied up and you never found out what went off in the woods with the kids. I get that sometimes authors don't like to tie everything up in neat packages and they say stuff like 'use your imagination, the clues are all there' , but it was as if they'd decided not to film 10 minutes of exposition at the end. Apparently though the book is the same. And after you have invested 8 hours of your life watching it to me that's a bit crap. Inside Number 9 manages to have great story arcs in 30 mins and this could not manage it in 8 hours. Avoid.

Re-watching Justified. One of the best TV series ever, and even Mrs Wedge has gotten into it this time, despite not liking "Cowboy" films/ programs....... it's not a cowboy :)

With no live sport I have been catching up on unwatched dvds. Just watched first two series of Broadchurch over four nights. Great not having adverts, and trying to remember what happened the week before. Now for series three.
