I gave up on it after four or five episodes.  Gleeson is great as usual, but the show had nothing else going for it IMO.

Finished out the first season.

I enjoyed it. Its no Sopranos or Breaking Bad, but a good show overall. Gleeson is brilliant! I'll definitely check out the second season.
Brendan's exaggerated Dublin persona did irritate me, he over-eggs it to taxi driver depths. He's a perfectly naturally aspired Dub, complete with a pleasant Dublin accent. i think he should have gone with that, just as Gabriel Byrne sounds the same on film as he does day to day.

Oh good.  Glad you didn't pay attention to me!

Itís actually better than promising, it is very good and Kaley Cuoco is fantastic in it. I was ready for episode 2 but Mrs. Baloney took herself to bed and I was told not to watch it!

Onto the second series of Snowpiercer on Netflix. I believe there is a film but I've never seen that.  Still couldn't tell you if i'd go as far to recommend it but it's easy enough viewing.  A decent concept.  I have a feeling that it could become quite stale after a while...

Its fine, I'm not diving into it like others shows I'm watching but I think I'm up to date on it

I'm on the last one of Sense8

The concept is brilliant and so well acted, but the other story in it, could have been a better storyline to it. But its got enough nudity in it ;)

This why myself and the other half rarely watch stuff together. I can run through 3 or 4 episodes at the drop of a hat while one episode does her..... In fact if it was a lazy night in front of TV she'd watch single episodes of multiple different series back to back driving me insane  :o My poor wee brain can't compute more than one cliffhanger at a time.

Probably should have posted this on the what grinds your gears thread....

I have lost momentum with so many shows because of this. We ended up having maybe one show at a time that we are watching together, then a whole load of shows that fall into her only or me only categories!

I doubt if most Americans even understood his repeated use of "feck me in the arse!". :D

Although my wife, to be fair, has managed to watch it without subtitles.

Can't say the same for Derry Girls, despite their accents not being a million miles from my own. Although years away has taken the edge off a wee bit, both in dialect and, to a lesser extent, accent.

Its a decent series overall, although you do have to suspend disbelief here and there. And a few rather surprising twists with respect to certain characters. I'll say no more than that. I think HBO have renewed it for a second season. And yes, when it comes to the actual acting part, Kelly Cuoco is surprisingly good.

Netflix can be a bollox, they must commission so many series and ditch them after maybe two seasons, yes I get the fact that some are completely non runners but some of the shite my kids watch and they are season 12! 

What channel is the flight attendant on?
