Without a doubt.. Arthur is a brilliantly flawed character, superbly acted. I like the gypsy Lee fella too. Really like all the versions of Red Right Hand they use too. Only downer for me living not too far from Brum was Polly's awful brummie accent but I've got over it now :roflmao:

We get weird programmes in Finland and often very late. Some that I have recently watched.

Ackley Bridge (where Hebden Bridge gets featured)
The Leftovers (Sort of mysterious rapture series with hints of Apophenia)
The Outlander (Sort of soft porn time travel)
Indian Summers (The end of British colonialism in India with the wonderful Julie Walters)
Mr Robot ( Cyber Fraud and crypto terrorism coupled with schizophrenia)
Scottish Steel and Irish Fire that's the weapon I desire.

My wife is a fan of The outlander, I enjoyed the first series but thought it got a bit daft after that.

Enjoyed Indian Summers

:bear:
Haven't seen a single episode of Game of Thrones bb, both me and Mr Swan just didn't fancy it, but lots of our friends rave about it. We started to watch Westworld but didn't finish the first episode. (We've watched the original film with yul Brynner about three times which was excellent) Didn't watch the Durrells, Keely Hawes isn't one of my fave actresses, did you enjoy it...is it worth downloading?

I was about to give up on Westworld after 2 episodes, but was told to persevere and did so, glad I did, it is well worth it in the end

The Durells was horrible I just wanted to punch the whole lot of them, considering it was supposed to be based on his life, it was a bit far fetched..
GOT I was a late arriver to the series, but now up to date, it is quite good.

I also watched New Blood the other week, and think it has potential to be very good, especially as it is written by Anthony Horrowitz

There are some interesting new dramas that we're recording at the moment. McMafia, Kiri, Next of Kin, haven't seen any of them yet, will watch the whole series at once when they're complete

By the way best sit com of 17 was The Good Place...Ted Danson as a, well I won't say because it becomes key to the plot (yes a sit com with a plot) is brilliant
