Better Call Saul this week.

Up there with the best tv episodes in history.

Extraordinary.
This season 6 (the finale) is  just pure Saul, a superb  season, magical at times and by now half way through you can get the inkling of what the great tragedy is about and  how/where it will merge with the Breaking Bad story line.

What great tragedy?
You want a spoiler from the future? :D
Do you remember Breaking Bad? Did it strike you that there was a slight hint of a tragedy about the story?

There was a lot of tragedy in BB and as its happened its not a spoiler - what you referencing exactly?
read the thread, I wrote that thereís an inkling of what the great tragedy is about and you ask what great tragedy. Obviously if there exists only an inkling of a future tragedy half way through this season, you are asking for a spoiler from the future.
It's a wonder nrico hasn't posted a full page post of what happened in the last episode.

I can if you want?

I just didn't get whether you were referring to some insinuated tragedy from the BB series or if you were simply speculating that you think there will be one in the final batch of BCS episodes.

I was referring to Better Call Saul. I first mentioned BB  in the context that  BCS is ending soon, presumably in a place close to where BB began and how that will transpire has been one of the curiosities of the BCS series. Another curiosity (to be revealed) is how the characters turn back their age clock by 15 years.

I've started on The Staircase, a tv drama series based on ..... The Staircase. My first impression was that husband Peterson was better at playing Peterson than Colin Firth is.
However it looks like it will be good viewing for the whole miniseries.
The documentary series* from 2004  is superb,  live time footage edited into a compelling drama,  but allow for the bias.
*Staircase 1 Staircase 2 and Staircase 3 ;D

The Staircase documentary is in my top 3 true crime shows, amazing that it is filmed over the guts of 20 years too.

One of the other true crime shows in my top 3, that never seems to get a mention, is The Jinx.

The jinx is brilliant.

Evil Genius is my fave though.  Just f**king bizarre from start to finish.

Sometimes simple but entertaining TV is all you need. We as a family are loving Is it Cake on Netflix at the moment. Kids love it and we get a bit of a kick out of guessing and have a bit of competition going between us.
Like I said simple but entertaining.

Yip we watch that with the kids as well...other shows we watch as a family are American Ninja Warrior Junior, Junior Master Chef, and Lego Masters. We just finished the Harry Potter films and started LOTR.

My kids were watching that Is it Cake show the other day also! Sat down and watched it with them. Good aul craic in fairness.
Itís better than that Minecraft nonsense I see them watching.

Thanks, I hadn't heard of Jinx or Evil Genius (except our occasional visitor out to save Ulster from GAA), I'll pirate them both and have a gander
