Absolutely agree, SoA is one of my favourite tv series I've ever watched. But Mayans for me just feels like a show made for the sake of it. Gave up after a few episodes as there doesn't seem any point to the series.
For me SoA was great until the last series.

And yes, Mayans is not as good.

The Tunnel is top drawer, all three seasons. Stephen Dillane and Clemence Poesy are both fantastic in it.
Good series, lost a little bit towards the end of the final series (3). Especially when :censored: made that :censored:.....;)
I finished it last night. I thought the 3rd series was a bit rushed. There were fewer episodes and it showed. The usual character development wasn't there. Saying that I'd agree with need my wedge regarding the leads, superb. The only character I didn't like throughout was his wife, too whiney.

I won't say anything about what happened as I don't want to spoil it for anyone. I would say though that it has been one of my favourite shows of recent years, don't know how I missed it first time around.

Im a bit slow as its a few years old now, however just binged all 3 seasons of The Detectorists. Very funny, well written and just nice easy comedy. 8/10.
Going to second this. Binged the 3 seasons, 30 mins an episode and finished last night. Very well written show, great characters, funny and hugely enjoyable. Simon and Garfunkel were brilliant, made even funnier by the fact that I know a German that is a spitting image of "Art" in looks, mannerisms and even the way he talks... :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:. It's on demand via the SKY box, highly recommended.

I'll third that. Watched them when they came out, a work of understated genius in my opinion.

We've started watching Upload on Amazon, about 5 episodes in. At first I wasn't sure about the concept, but it's pretty good. (Also slight nods to Black Mirror I think with their vision of our future but anyway.) Quite an easy watch despite the high-concept future stuff. The supporting character Luke is great.
Just finished this last night. It was actually a really good series in the end. Only 10 episodes. Had a great ending to set up the next series as well.

Recommended this a month or so back, very enjoyable, clever script, thoroughly enjoyed it, looking forward to season 2.

Finished Mayans mc at the weekend, series 3 can do one.
Started Cardinal and have watched S1 and nearly finished S2.
It's a c Canadian detective drama and we'll worth watching imo. Find it in BBC iPlayer.

Watched season 1 of Ragnarok. Norse mythology fantasy drama set in modern day Norway, not bad but a slow builder and they barely got the story started in 6 episodes. Have to wait until next year for more.
In English too for netflix which for a whole foreign cast is quite impressive.
7/10.
