"The Sixties."

News documentary series covering the whole of the 60s in the US, from the early days of JFK, through the black equality movement, Martin Luther King, The Beatles, the space missions, Vietnam, Nixon etc etc.

Superb.
Been there done that, do not want to be reminded:ROFLMAO:

Just finished Normal People. Paul Mescal must be one of the best actors on the planet based on that performance and I hope he doesn’t get pigeon holed because of his Irish accent.
He was stunning. I got so immersed in his character. So much so I said to David when we watched the last episode how sad it was he'd become so mentally frail and fragile. Something about the little murmur he'd often give - hard to explain but he was brilliant.

Absolutely stunning original mix of black and white and colour news footage.

On Sky Arts, so available by searching on Sky, NowTV etc.

Superb.
Seriously though I did watch it and the follow ons I was bit too young to take a lot of it in at the time and only have partial memories of that time. It was a series of programmes I enjoyed.

Plus the interraction with him and Marianne. Even David was asking me last night why they couldn't work it out, why she was telling him to go to NY. Everything between them was so real, so deep and so emotional...loved it and gutted to find it was the last episode.

Very much in to the latest series of Manifest and Crossing LineS(CH5)

I have watched the first episodes of Pandora (SKY Sci Fi) and Emergence (Fox) both look promising.

I was ahead of both of my kids on this show. They were both initially too young to watch it but then binged watched it to catch up. We watched the last 2 series together. It was agony as both would ask questions or make statements regarding what they thought would happen to characters. It really is a show where you can not say anything to someone watching it, nothing at all. You just have to tell them to watch it all unfold and enjoy it.

I have to say, it was a huge relief when they caught up and we could discuss theories, characters, parts we did not understand. It is a show you need to talk about with someone after watching an episode.

Or fall asleep in the armchair as I'm inclined to do during the 3rd episode of the evening and just ask the wife who's who when she watches the next day 😀😀😁

I felt like I went through every emotion with him. The visceral yet aloof nature of their relationship was brilliant and it was so real.

Just finished Paranoid, a detective drama on Netflix. Not anywhere near as dark as some of the foreign detective drama's, not particularly taxing, not a comedy, although it was comedic at times, we really enjoyed it.

Been watching the Medici on Netflix, was wondering if they were going to show the grizzly death of the Pazzi family, i need not have worried they had cast Sean Bean as Jacapo Pazzi in the 2nd series:LOL:

We found that it was if we watched the genesis and very early days of their relationship from the side - but as it went on we fell into the middle of it. At the end Mrs SILH was saying she wanted to go visit them to see how they were getting on :)

not bad the first series is better because of the acting i would say, 2nd not bad, not ot far on 3 yet.

a bit of poetic licence with the story but close enough;)

I’m pretty sure they make it even with him going to NY. The big difference from their other failed attempts was they always went their own way but didn’t talk about it. This time they’ve finally opened up to each other and they’re going to survive the year apart just as their love has survived four years already.

Agreed. I kept thinking if only they had communicated better that Summer and he'd stayed...and...

That's why it's so good. We know it's not real but wow did it feel it.

Cosmos - I grew up watching the original series with Carl Sagan which was fantastic at the time. The new one is also great viewing. There was one point where they were talking about the infinity of the universe and the countless number of galaxies I felt my head would burst. It reminded me of the Total Perspective Vortex in the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy.
