Been watching a documentary series on Netflix called Shot in the Dark.  Really enjoying it.  It's based on the guys who listen to police scanners in LA and rush to film incidents, with the hope of selling the footage to the networks.  It's a crazy job and it takes a certain type of person.

Quite an interesting show. The English fella seemed like a decent enough fella but the other 2 were dicks.

Yeah had a look after the recommendation here, enjoyed it and came to pretty much the same conclusion about the guys.

Shot in the dark was good because it was different. As mentioned above Mindhunter is great as is Peaky Blinders. Friday Night Tykes is a great watch as well. Some of it is real cringey to watch but you can't turn it off.

Shamed on Channel four tonight was decent. Very Black Mirror. Though not at their high level, still worth a watch and very relevant.

Really started to dislike the lad Zak towards the end. Manipulative smarmy git.

Nobody else getting sick of how four series in, everything almost always seems to fall into their place?

Watched Episode 1 of Counterpoint, a new sci-fi show tipped for big things (starring JK Simmons). Interesting & entertaining.

Rocky Ros Muc, TG4, Lá Nollaig @ 9.30.

The story of Seán Mannion who fought for the Light Heavyweight Championship in the 80's.

Vaguely remember him kicking around the 12 Bens in Dorchester.

FYI It's actually called Counterpart. Couldn't find a show called Counterpoint so I googled JK Simmons and found it that way.
