Long time listener, not first time poster.
Keep popping in every now and then for a look see.

Amazed no-one has yet mentioned The Handmaid's Tale - harrowing, but remarkably topical.

Put me down for:-
Westworld
Game of Thrones
The Orville (on the basis of three episodes shown in 2017!)
Stranger Things
and (cos I can't count)
The Expanse
Music so wishes to be heard that it sometimes calls on unlikely characters to give it voice...

Otherwise, good, thanks. Still at the gym three times a week, doing my cardio 8-) How's you and the missus?

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


:evil: :evil: :evil: You obviously have no taste whatsoever :P

yes Swan the Durrells is lovely Sunday evening viewing, can't wait for the next series :tup:

I too loved the original film Westworld with Yul Brynner but my eldest son bought me the boxed set of Westworld for Christmas so gave it a go and love it, quite dark but good storyline and very gripping.

I was late to the party with GOT too and my eldest bought me the first 3 seasons for Christmas a couple of years ago. I binged on it over 2 weeks, had to go and buy series 4 and then 5 and then I think I caught up and had to wait for it to be on the telly. Worth watching it for Kit Harrington alone and dare I say Emilia Clarke :oops: :bear:

Emilia Clarke is hot as Daenerys Targaryen...Wonderful series which pushes through the boundaries of television and leaves you wanting more every single episode...But they're going to struggle to end it satifactorily

Well that was a good series...

Now watching hard sun...... excellent track to play out episode 1... 5 years - Bowie, I just knew that it had to be played at some point in the series....

Took a fair few in the first episode...

I get confused.. some shots she looks about 16 and others she looks 40... very misleading face...
