Quote from: JimStynes on February 17, 2024, 05:16:37 AMNot my usual type of show but One Day on Netflix is brilliant.

Lol, exactly the same JimStynes.  Almost felt embarrassed recommending it to anyone but it is excellent

Aul tear jerker too ffs
Watched it also and honestly I didn't expect to like it but I thought it was great!

Quote from: J70 on February 21, 2024, 02:39:59 PMI enjoyed True Detective 4. Wasn't the greatest tv series ever, but it was decent enough.

Started that Dornan one set in Australia, The Tourist. 2 episodes in. Is it worth sticking with?

The tourist was enjoyable but the last episode of series 2 was pure shite, a real let down of an ending for an otherwise entertaining 2 seasons

Noted!

Montana is a stunningly scenic place, but holy f**k! ;D

1923 was ok but not great. Must watch 1883.

Agreed on tulsa king and disappointed on true detective as had heard good reports.

Quote from: bennydorano on February 20, 2024, 11:20:12 PMHow bad was True Detective.

I'm way behind but I've just finished season 1 of True Detective. Thought it was great, how do the following seasons compare?

Unfortunately no comparison. Season 2 got poor reviews but it had a lot to live up to and I thought it was good enough. Wouldn't bother with 3 or 4.

Three the best of the rest imo

Agree but still could have been better. Series one was captivating. Had it all. 2 still a head scratcher at how bad it was, considering the budget and cast. Waiting to see 4.

Can see why plenty thought 4 was poor. Struggled to get into it tbh but strong last couple of episodes, average overall!

S1 had a great story and the two main characters were brilliant also and carried it forward.  It's hard to replicate something fresh like that. The title has been milked dry at this point. 

Just watched Kin there, simple but brilliant.  As I said to the other half, who ever thought we would be rooting for dublin drug gangs to succeed!
I tend to think of myself as a one man wolfpack...

Season 1 of True Detective was slow for the first 3 or 4 episodes. Ended brilliantly. Season 2 and 3 were OK as was 4.

Kin is decent but nowhere near Love/Hate standard.

If season 1 of True Detective is all you've seen, I'd take a bit of a break before diving into the others. That first season is just too hard of an act to follow.

Season two is weird mix of good and just awful.  Worth watching in the end, but a serious let-down after Season 1. 

I quite liked Season 3, but it's clearly not for everyone.   Only watched the first two episodes of season 4, so can't say much about that one.

TD4 was mush, the polar opposite of "natural Police"
I found TD2 watchable,the last episode wrapped it up nicely. S3 was excellent imo, I don't get why it's not rated favourably here.

After watching S1 I'd follow with S3, then see if you can watch S2.
