Talking of shows which are great, but obscure here, check out The Detectorists - MacKenzie Crook's show based around a metal detectors club. Not the most promising of concepts, but really hits the mark, helped along with a great performance from Toby Jones. Won the bafta for best sitcom, but more melancholy than laugh out loud. By far MacKenzie's best work.
Am watching this now, what a hidden gem this show is, great television

Just started watching new Horror Anthology Series THEM (Amazon Prime) on recommendation of one Stephen King in Twitter.

Pretty slow moving in the first episode so far, but the tension is building and the acting is top notch.

Looks like a keeper this one.

Are there any sci-fi elements? Or just proper intense/thriller type stuff?

Mainly intense/thriller stuff so far (with toxic racism thrown in too, to add to the tension)

It's kind of like a Mad Men/American Horror Story crossover, think there will be sci-fi/supernatural elements later on, but still on the pilot episode, they are building up the characters and setting for what is too come, and it's got me hooked

I will have to watch a few more episodes to make an more concise evaluation though.

Hm, don't really like Sci-Fi stuff. Damn.

Well Ep 1 was disturbing and sent some chills down the spine when
that figure appeared in the lounge room and attacked the kid...******* disturbing or what!

Just watched all three seasons back to back after seeing this. What a great show.

I'm watching "The Moodys" after the recommendation of the show from Neroli Meadows. I interviewed her last week for my podcast (it'll be released next week), and she mentioned that her brother plays the lead character, Dan. Very funny show.

I'm an American who fell in love with Footy 5 years ago, and I've also taken a deep dive into Australian tv programs on AcornTV. Absolutely loved, Jack Irish, Mystery Road, and an older series, East/West 101.

Yeah unless you buy the DVD i think its going to be hard to find. Very unlikely its ever going to be aired again due to some content. One of my favourite shows ever too
