I reakon if you liked Chernobyl you'll like Unabomber. Probably not quite as good, but I loved Chernobyl and didn't think I'd get into Unabomber but really enjoyed it.The Chernobyl story is so intriguing and they did a really good job encompassing what happened with the plant and what soviet era Ukraine/Russia was like.
I rewatched Episode 1 last night. One of the great first eps in mini series history.
I’ve actually got it on DVD. Absolutely love it!I haven't watched Big Train in a while, I will revisit.
This is a forgotten gem from old mate Armando who worked on Brass Eye, In the thick of It and Veep:
All eight episodes are on youtube. Very dark and clever, almost Black Mirror-esque at times.
I don't think it was released in Australia and got overshadowed by Sep 11 when released.
Yeah season 3 was my fave BEaston. Really enjoyed it.Yellowstone is pretty good. I need to get onto s3 of it now that it's finished (I think?)
Have you watched Taylor Sheridan's other stuff fronk? Sicario his biggest but Hell or High Water and Wind River are fantastic also. Wind River especially I thought was really good. American scenery plays a big part in all his movies.
The wire still my all time number 1. Can’t beat it.Decent list. Obviously if anybody hasn't seen the The Wire it's a must watch ASAP.
Similar to True Detective, I thought Fargo was only good for the one season.
I'd also add Deadwood season 1 as one of the best individual seasons of TV made.
Freaks and Geeks is an underrated classic IMO, if you like coming of age type settings. Only 1 season too which makes it an easy watch.
How good is it, just rewatched the five first series, with my partner, brilliant, brilliant show. Enjoyed them all over again.Everybody stop what you’re doing and watch Line Of Duty. Best show I’ve seen in a looooong time. I’m ranking it alongside The Wire and Sopranos. Absolutely brilliant TV.
Awesome, keen to get stuck into s3.Yeah season 3 was my fave BEaston. Really enjoyed it.
Are they movies or series? Keen to see more of his stuff.
Agreed. I don't think The Wire will ever be topped IMO. It's a masterpiece.The wire still my all time number 1. Can’t beat it.
A left field option. Transparent. Very cool. Just 25min eps. Jeffrey Tambor is great in it, if you can get past his sexual misconduct allegations.
There was 1 good ep in every 5 or 6 that sucked me in to keep watching the same thing happen over and over.One thing you guys should never waste time on is the Walking Dead. It was promising for a season but even thought the show was absolutely mediocre for a lot of the seasons I had to persist. I got to the beginning of Season 7, but when I saw a bloke ruling a town with a pet tiger I gave up.
Apparently the new seasons are much better, or so I've heard.
I enjoyed it when the Governor was introduced. Negan was hyped up to be the next thing, bigger than him as he was the big bad villain from the comics and I just found him to be boring after 2 episodes.There was 1 good ep in every 5 or 6 that sucked me in to keep watching the same thing happen over and over.
The first ep of season 5 was incredible and I quit by the mid season break, because the following 6 were boring and I just had to end it.
Just finished watching episode 1 of 'Chernobyl.' Well that was some fun-filled, light hearted entertainment. There were a few too many in-jokes and one liners, and I don't think it needed the laughter track.Cherobyl (Foxtel) and The Staircase (Netflix). Highly recommend.
Vikings is good but drops of a little bit in season 5-6. Still worthwhile watching.Anyone watched Vikings? Started it a couple years ago, then went overseas for a bit and just never got back into the show when I returned. Considering making that my next binge watch, but don't want to get bitten like I did with Lost...
I remember sitting down with my father in law watching the first couple of episodes of Last Kingdom and thought it looked interesting, but was in the middle of a few other shows at the time so never kept going with it. Might be worth a tryVikings is good but drops of a little bit in season 5-6. Still worthwhile watching.
The last kingdom on the other hand gets better and better. Really starts to get good in seasons 3-4.
Does cover a bit of the vikings timeline but from a different perspective and more of an English focus. Netflix picked it up for season 3 and its got better as it's gone along.I remember sitting down with my father in law watching the first couple of episodes of Last Kingdom and thought it looked interesting, but was in the middle of a few other shows at the time so never kept going with it.
