Me & the Mrs watched the 1st episode of Sex Education on Netflix last night, hard to explain how bad it is. They've transplanted an American High School set up into rural England somewhere but it stiĺl has US sensibilities. I know I'm not the target demographic and young uns might lap it up, but god it is awful.

New Amsterdam on prime is a decent show so far.

A guy in work recommended this to me. I sacked him the next day.

True detective, was slow to start with and the dialogue needs subtitles but itís been great the last few episodes

Very like the first series in many respects - slow, slow, slow and then in episode-4 it all goes mental at the end.

Brett a perfectly calm and harmless character unleashes his inner Rambo with a similar calm and thoughtfulness, dealing effectively with truckloads of  fat fck gut toting rednecks merging on his house.
What would Sam Peckinpah have done with that scene?
It was also the episode where Hays and Amelia had their tete la tete. That's a curious relationship with an unusual initial mating.
I'm struggling to tie together the events over three different timelines which span many decades, maybe the present timeline is more about the 2 characters experiencing  the emerging ghosts of their past and that's the starting point for having a perspective on the past timelines in the series.

Loved True Detective season 1 and this season is good too although it does move very slowly.  I have my suspicions that the daughter wasn't talking about her da when she phoned the cops, definitely something dodge about the DA who was beside the da on TV.
