Marvellous Mrs Maisel. Wife safe etc. It is hard to explain but is very funny. (On amazon)

Fantastic show. 3rd season not up to the standard of the first two but very funny altogether and Brosnahan is absolutely brilliant in it.

I find Alex Borstein (Suzy) hilarious in it too. Great character.

Think they picked up Actress and Supporting Actress Emmy's two years running. Very good together.

Parks and Recreation good too after a slow first season. Only watching the American Office now too and it is very good. Finished Spy with Sasha Baren Cohen and it was excellent.

Been on a Parks & Rec binge since the weekend. . . it's very funny with some great comic actors in it Ansari/Pratt/Poehler/Jones/Plaza/Offerman are serious operators it's very funny it surprised me to be honest.

I've really enjoyed it and it's short too which helps.

Aye, but would the missus think its funny?

Definitely one for the wife as well it's good that way.

Started watching Your Honour, it is so intense it is unreal, one episode per night is enough. Real top quality show, very hard watch at times and I've only watched 2 episodes.

Ben Fogle had a documentary on Channel 5 on Wednesday night where he spent a week inside Chernobyl. Fascinating and harrowing at the same time. Showed the city as it was left, met residents who returned to their homes illegally and also adrenaline junkies who sought the danger of spending a night inside the exclusion zone.

Well worth a watch if youíre into that sort of thing.

Iíve started episode 2 and was half watching. Got totally lost and had to go back to the start. Needs full attention but a great show so far. A rough enough opening 15 mins or so.

Watched the first two seasons of The Killing (US version). Decent enough viewing. Would Season 3+4 be as good?

Season 3 was decent and 4 wasnt as good but you may as well go for it. Only watched them about 6 months ago myself.

Watching Canít Get You Out Of My Head by Adam Curtis.

Itís the first thing Iíve watched of his and while I found it tough going in the first episode itís totally engrossing now. Charting the course of history to where we are now and linking the whole thing together through individual stories historic events using old footage and music.

Itís really interesting!
