Dead to Me kind of fizzled out to not very much in the end. Think I need to quit Netflix, producing real quality TV at this quantity is just not feasible.

I dunno, Ian. The two central performances were great.
The ending has obviously left it open for a further season.

Yeah, they were good, had some good moments. Suppose I have to stop expecting any real payoff, since it's always going to need to go on to another series.

It's brilliant. Up to episode 23 now. :lol: Are there anymore murder mystery anime as good as this, films or series? Please recommend more. :lol:

Just started watching Deadwood. I signed up for Now TV to watch the new GoT series and i thought i'd better get my money's worth.
It's pretty good so far (Deadwood, not GoT). Ian McShane is excellent!

Did Ian McShane always do good work, or did he go straight from Lovejoy to being in every Prime/Netflix/HBO show? Seems odd.

Just watched the first 3 episodes of Undercover on Netflix, Dutch/Flemish crime series......not spectacular but pretty decent so far, worth a watch if you like Ozark and the like.

He was great as Lovejoy but i guess his versatility was probably sub-consciously questioned because he made such a convincing cheeky chappie. A bit like when Hugh Laurie went from doing Black Adder to House and The Night Manager. Americans instantly took to him as those serious characters but for us Brits it took a while to get his previous characters out of your mind before you could appreciate how good he was as the new ones. Bit of a long-winded way of saying 'yes' really   :lol:

Watched the Veep finale last night.  That takedown by Selina on James’ Chief of Staff :lol:

Going to miss it even though the quality dipped significantly after Iannucci left.

He'd been acting  for over 20 years before he did Lovejoy, although Lovejoy was his first "major" role, with any longevity. Lovejoy made him a household name, which allowed him to break into s**** US TV. Then he worked for almost another 20 years before he got 'Deadwood'.

Gotta hand it to him, he's a grafter, and probably deserves his success.

Just finished Series 3 of Line of Duty. So f***ing good, so annoyed its taken this long to get into the show. Some of the best TV I've watched in ages. Will probably go straight into 4 tonight. 1 to 3 have been brilliant does it keep getting better or does it drop off?

Still worth watching for sure but you've seen the best three series already. Agreed that the last twenty minutes of series three are absolutely fantastic.

When did Iannucci leave? I've just started watching, think Selina has just become Pres. Series 3ish.

I's say it's pretty much the same quality throughout, some niggles but it's a top show.

I'm at the end of season 2 of Veep, and enjoying so far. Some episodes better than others, but overall it's good.

Thought the whole season was fantastic.  They just embraced modern politics by going completely bonkers.  Richard Splett is probably my favourite comedy character ever.

Let's be honest, that can't be very challenging in this climate. I suppose the hardest part would be recognising when you've gone too far.

Saw there was a programme on anxiety on BBC1. Flicked straight off once I saw it was that Nadiya Hussein with another sob story presenting it. She’s transparent as f***. Desperate for a bit more screen time.

What did folk think of the Louis Theroux documentary btw? Caught up with it earlier.

:lol: It was good, man. Shouldve sat through it. Important stuff.

Theroux one was heartbreaking.

Watched The Virtues with Stephen Graham and the first episode was grim but really good.

Graham is one of the best actors around at the moment imo
