Completely disagree. Absolute shite. Camera "trickery" wears thin inside the first episode.

Better Call Saul is having a really good season.
First real explicit cross-over into Breaking Bad in the last episode I watched.

Also just started watching Bosch. 2 episodes in and it seems really good.
Bosch is a class series wonderfully set in LA, the lead actor Titus just steps into Bosch's considerable shoes and gives added nuances to the character of the novel. I see Series 7 has been out  for a few weeks.

In the book series the Bosch character does evolve/mature accordingly to life experiences, which is unusual in the genre, this  aspect does not feature in the tv drama where Bosch is basically the same intense, driven, taciturn guy throughout. I wonder what Michael Mann could have made with Bosch if he had directed a series.

Finished Black Bird on Apple there tonight. Would definitely recommend.

Same here. Brilliant show!
Larry reminded me of you.
Nah, Larry reminded me of you  :D

This was an intense drama, probably if you knew what was coming you'd avoid it like the plague, but after viewing it  all the way through I'm glad I stuck with it.

We started watching "What we do in the shadows" recently.

Actually, the wife did, and after initial skepticism, I got sucked in.

Very funny so far (we're at start of Season 3). And great concept - fish out of water thing with vampires who originated in past centuries Europe trying to make it in modern day Staten Island.

Watched the first episode of The Sandman. Dunno if I'm intrigued or just a load of nonsense. Has been getting great reviews though.

It's very...Gaiman alright.

Who killed the KLF - available on Sky Documentaries

If you're thinking, oh that might be interesting - it f**king is. Wasn't a huge fan back in the day but it's a hugely interesting Documentary.

Caught most of it Benny. Quite a bit of craziness even before the burning of the ££. Caught quite a backlash after that righrly so probably. Weird couple almost like they were trying to outdo each other with crazy shit. Couple great tunes though 😊

They were 2 originals that's for sure! I do think they considered themselves artists more than anything. Cute enough too, owned & produced everything themselves. Very funny documentary at times as well

Made a clean fortune then literally gave all away/burned.

Then deleted the whole library so no ongoing revenue or have they since relented?!
