Loved it thought slightly meh about the ending. Vince Vaughn makes a brilliant baddie/demi baddie (I see a softer side!!!)

So, the Autumn scheduling starts! X Factor this week, Strictly next week, Downton will soon be along (the final series - sob). Presumably The Apprentice will put in an appearance. And I'm still waiting on Luther. Where is he???

Hannibal will be finishing soon.

Anyone watching Madam Secretary?? Really quite enjoying it!!

I'm looking forward to The Apprentice.

Lately I've watched Fake or Fortune and now Who Do You Think You Are? on the iplayer, love both of those.

Someone said Last Tango In Halifax was worth a look so saw the last 3 series via tvmuse, not my usual sort of thing but the old couple (Derek Jacobi & Anne Reid) we so sweet.

Downton is awful. So disappointed. Wooden acting and crap script. As if they couldn't be bothered.
In my heart I am Rascalpup, a name awarded during battle with one persistent spammer. I like to think ironside but with sarcasm rather than an axe.

Slightly horrified by my huge number of posts.

New to this thread...

We've been watching Gotham on Netflix and really enjoying it. It's quite dark and the guy who plays the Penguin character is superb!

We started Narcos last week so are only one episode in but I'm hooked! It's based on the true story of Pablo Escobar so it's pretty violent but so very interesting and thought provoking and enjoyable.

Anyone else watching Doctor Foster on BBC? It's really good. Last one this week but sure it will be on the iplayer for catching up.

Greys Anatomy and Criminal Minds have started new series so been watching those.

Might have a look for Narcos, sounds interesting.

GBBO. Nearly finished. Boo.
Strictly. Just started. Hurrah!
Nashville. Shameful, I know. But I can't help it, I like it!

That list has just made me realise that I have actually turned into my Mother...

However, also:
Dave Gorman Modern Life is Goodish.
Gogglebox. Yayyy!!!
Just d/lded The Affair and Scott & Bailey.

Yes to Dr Foster - and it's filmed near us with my oh's family's shop in! Fame by association :D

I watch GBBO as a treat when I'm feeding E and Moo is asleep. I need it on repeat so I can actually see the full episode in several stages. Moo sometimes asks for 'bake off' if I say no to CBeebies!

Started to watch Witnesses (I think it's called) which is a French police thing with strange titles, need to catch up with a few, the first 2 were good.

Did anyone else watch This Is England? I cried buckets. So well done and emotional.

Yes, I did. I was wary, as the violence from the previous ones had put me off, but this series was really heart-warming in places and funny too. Great acting. Brought back terrible memories of the '90s, though! Those clothes!

Some more I've enjoyed recently.

Code Black - Medical US drama, only 1 season so far but excellent.

Person of Interest - Really good, got the Lost guy in it and Jim Caviezel. An ex-assassin and a wealthy programmer save lives via a surveillance AI that sends them the identities of civilians involved in impending crimes. However, the details of the crimes--including the civilians' roles--are left a mystery.

Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders - Spin off, team that travels all over the world. Not as good as the original series but ok.

And Orange Is the New Black - Season 4 starts 17th June :D
