What are you watching?


#1253

I didn’t say anything about Black Mirror. I only saw the first 2 episodes of this series and didn’t like it at all.


#1254

Did anyone watch the new Luther last night?

I liked it, it looks set up for a few episodes (I hope) with the story lines they already have in place. Nice to start off the new season with a lovely demented case!


#1255

Yeah great having it back on. Few different stories running together their and Alice turning up to put another curve on it. Right up for it.


#1256

Might have been because you called it a film rather than a TV show, that threw me for a second.


#1257

Isn’t a TV show still a film? Albeit in many episodes?

But anyway, my bad. I was talking only about HMT. The joke about @Trion was because the show’s premise is a dystopian future of enslaving and raping women haha.

Ah paradise


#1259

Thought you might enjoy it.

Film is what us Brits say instead of movie, so no, a TV show would be called a show, or a programme (used in Britain but not the US). Can see the confusion for a non-native, as TV shows are of course filmed.

And yeah, I got the joke haha


#1261

In all honesty I know all that. A film is a film in my native language too, филм, you see. I just wanted to use more diversified language and substitute film for series, which I use all the time and felt repetitive. A mistake I will know not to make ever again. Now thanks to you though I know I’d better use show or programme - two words that I know but don’t always come to my mind when I look for substitutes. So thanks for that.

Man, if I was a moderator this misusage of your language wouldn’t have escalated at all. But no, you had to wield your power advantage over me and put it in my face.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is close to perfection.


#1263

Been catching up with Vikings after stopping mid-season 4 a few years ago.

Reached one of the series most defining moments in S4 Part 2. Damn man… brilliantly done and left a powerful impact.

The series is a superb watch.


#1264

Honestly believe had it not been around the same time as Got, it would have got a lot more attention definitely very underrated, Ragnar and floki two of my favourite characters


#1265

In some ways I enjoyed it more than GOT, obviously budget wise it can’t compete but I felt Viking’s story has a really natural flow to it up until the point that we’re introduced to the Ragnar’s sons then it begins to waver a little.

But Ragnar and Floki are every bit as engaging - and much more likable and charismatic- than anyone from GOT.

Like you say very unfortunate time to be released but even then I’m not sure people would have given a History channel production much time anyway.

Ozark > GoT


#1267

GoT is pretty shit now and everyone is just watching to see how it ends.

At least that’s the case with me. Went off the rails after S4.


#1268

For the ending absolutely, and for the spectacle. As much as the show was always at its best when it was centred more on the dialogue, scheming etc, I have been waiting a fucking long time to really see the dragons absolutely fuck shit up on a massive scale and we are really getting that now. In a massive fucking way.


#1269

Wasn’t that, incidentally, when there was less shagging on the programme?


#1270

Finally got around to Stranger Things. loved season 1, thought 2 was a bit same same. And it looked from the cliffhanger that 3 would also be same same, sadly. Good nostalgia though.


#1271

Really like this :+1:

Got 2 episodes left
