The walking dead is slow as f*ck at the minute.  It needs condensed into fewer episodes like game of thrones. Less filler, more thriller

Always been the way with this show, no need for it.  Could easily cut the 16 odd episodes down to ten and cut out all the shite thats in every season.

Watched SAS - Rogue Warriors (3 episodes on BBC iplayer), very interesting. Concentrates on their formation and only deals with WW2 Activities. Paddy Mayne was certainly an interesting character / leader. Thinking of buying a Biography now.

The hero of Newtownards.

Was there talk around his death after he'd crashed his car, no one went to help him because of his bad repitation around the town?

Started the OJ story on Netflix last night. I was a bit too young at the time to appreciate the madness and magnitude of it but against the backdrop of the Rodney King killing I can understand how they let him off even though they shouldn't.

I read he's in jail for kidnapping and armed robbery at the minute. He must be a crazy b**tard!

The ESPN documentary OJ Made in America is great and I would recommend it to anyone that is interested in the story

It's about 8hrs

Yes noticed this was on Netflix last night. I think it will be next on my list.  Still ploughing on through Power on Netflix. Decent show in fairness.

Oh and i recently watched The Seven Five documentary on Netflix too about the corrupt NYPD officer Michael Dowd in the 80s. Really good doc.  The ease of the corruption would make you think that it had to be (and i suppose still is) so common place.

Season 1 of The Expanse was great Sci-Fi but season 2 has been even better, S2E2 quality TV.

We're two series through Power; it's a really enjoyable watch.
Oh, and there is that much sex in it that it's almost like it's a soft p*rn show

Must give it another go, watched Episode 1 and never went back.

I watched Stargate Universe recently again for the 3rd time. Best Sci-Fi series ever imo. Broke my heart when it got cancelled.
