    Couple of mini series I've enjoyed recently:

    Mare of Easttown - gritty US police drama with Kate Winslet in the leading role.

    Showtrial - British courtroom drama about a posh student accused of murdering another student. Deals well with the way the press sensationalise events and demonise suspects.

    Both excellent.

    Celine Buckens was truly captivating in Showcase, best female leading role I have probably seen all year on tv

    Don’t look up, Netflix. Black Mirror, apocalyptic type film, with Leonardo Di Caprio, Jennifer Lawrence and Meryl Streep. Very good, I thought. Although probably a little extreme, it’s one of them where you keep saying to yourself, I can see that happening.

    Watched that Don't look up on Netflix, not as good as the hype imo although the take on governmental and people behaviour is scarily realistic even though it’s a black comedy.

    Have just watched two programmes recorded from BBC4 last night.
    The Windermere Children.
    The Windermere Children In Their Own Words.

    First one is a drama based on facts...
    Second is self explanatory.

    Both very moving but highly recommended.

    I'm sure they'll be available on iPlayer

    Rewatching S3 of Ozark. S4, part one, is out on the 21st of this month. Got to be said, probably the best thing on the telly these last few years. Really looking forward to the new series.

    Watched part 1 of S4 a couple of weeks ago. It’s still the best thing on the telly. Absolutely brilliant.

    Anyone seen the new Louis Theroux episode on the iPlayer, the American far-right one? Bonkers, absolutely bonkers. Sinister too.

    Trigger Point. Another cracking drama from the Jed Mercurio stable.

    Yes. I wasn't sure after the first episode but the plot has developed nicely.

    Out of interest, did you watch Vigil and, if so, did you rate it?

    This is what this site does to you!
    I was watching A Few Good Men with the wife last night. The court scene was approaching it's climax when Jack Nicholson snarled "You can't handle the truth"............and I immediately thought of @Fordy117@Fordy117
