Was a fan of HIMYM at the start but the ending was horrifically bad like they dragged a whole twenty episodes out of an ending it was f**king stupid!!

Very rarely happy with endings I think shows that go out at the top are the best Gervais did it well 2 series then you’re done dragging things on like they do in America only makes things stale.

Bojack Horseman has a very good ending!! Brilliant show!

Ah The Office, a work of genius. Still to this day can watch that show.

Never watched the American one, maybe that's something to look into.

Speaking of comedy show endings, Blackadder was exceptional.

Early Doors, with Craig Cash. Pure genius.

The end of Love/Hate was brilliant.  Dexter wasn't brilliant but it wasn't bad either, I liked the idea of him where he ended up.  The whole boat into the storm thing was stupid obviously.

The American one is very different. They've captured the Tim and Gareth dynamic very well with the Brent character being very different and they've brought in some other great characters that weren't in the original.

There's a lot of episodes and the laughs are diluted at times as sitcoms in American tend to do with 20 odd episodes but definitely enjoyable.

To save time the best bits are on youtube!

Only just watched the first episode of Tiger King. Bonkers.




It is pretty nuts all right, but riveting stuff. ;D

Talk about a cast of oddballs. Each one dodgier than the last (not talking about the hair styles and clothes!), with deadly vendettas and grudges and conspiracies and all kinds of allegations. All in the world of exploiting and breeding big cats and other exotic animals. Watching it I was wondering why any of them agreed to be in it. No one came out of it looking well, even those who didn't fall foul of the law.

Looking forward to this one have heard it's completely mental I remember the dude on with Louis Theroux at the time and thinking there's way more going on than his interest in big cats!!

Saw that popping up on Netflix last night, might have a gander tonight as I'm losing my patience with Safe.

Finished it all last night. One of the most captivating shows your ever going to watch. I loved every second of it.
