Just finished the first series of The Sinner. Found it very good, some small plot holes but overall very enjoyable.

Season 1 and Season 2 are good, but Season three is the biggest bowl of pish I have sat through.

Only watched The Sinner 3 weeks ago.  I had heard the reports about the third season but battered on anyway.  Season 1 and 2 were pretty good though.

Didn't like 2 (don't think finished it) and finished 3 but found the premise hard to deal with. Also, Mrs. Baloney kept going on about how he'd never be allowed to keep teaching, so that didn't help my enjoyment of it!

Mrs Cool was the same. Sure he'd not be allowed to follow him to NYC, blah blah blah.

The film is far superior to this series.

Yep - I enjoyed it.  Great cast - and the characters were interesting because they developed in ways I hadn't expected.  I think if you liked Ozark, you'd like it.

I started watching because it was set in the Keys and it had Kyle Chandler in it.  But glad I did.

Am enjoying the new Sky adaptation of the 'Perry Mason' yarns - seems to have drawn influences heavily from the recent German 'Babylon Berlin' adaptations.  Recommended ... if you like that sort of thing.
It's very interesting, pretty dark, doesn't resemble the Perry I remember and his handsome sidekick who had a knack of finding the smoking gun just before Perry did his summing up. They spent a bit of money on this production. Jesus saves but Perry will set you free.

The new series of Last Chance U has arrived on Netflix.  New team, new coaches and an inner city team this year from Oakland.  I have only watched 2 of the new series but it continues to be a great watch.  This new coach seems to be another character.

Amazing to see the lengths that the players/students go to, when also faced with society problems, family problems and this year, work problems.

Watched it all. Laney College, Oakland is certainly a different feel to East Mississippi or Independence, Kansas. This feels more like the nitty gritty of JUCO football as opposed to the facilities/money/scholarships etc seen at the previous schools. This coach is a bit more likeable than the others imo and agreed the lengths the players go to is really eye-opening.

Think this is the last football version of the show with Laney Basketball being covered next.

Yeah great show thoroughly enjoyable, definitely no big time Charlies in this series, some of the players that the spotlight was on in previous series were definitely born with the silver spoon in their mouths, poor Dior has to sleep in his car!!
