[emoji38] I've almost started that a few times. Is 'beautiful disaster' good or bad?

The good kind, it's hilarious how bad it is.

Some actual screencaps below  [emoji38]

[emoji38] Sounds like Prison School in that "Oh my God why am I watching this." as you quickly load up the next episode kind of way.

Will check it.

:lol: Holy s*** I f***ing hate this.

The Wire will be in the top 5 shows ever, no matter who you ask. Narcos is an easier watch, but just can't reach that level.

Still worth it. By comparison the licence fee is £12.25 a month.

How is it? Most of it’s day to day programmes are only popular with older generations. It has even kicked BBC 3 which was aimed at millennials online. It has sold the re-run rights to it’s popular backlog of shows to UK TV, so can’t even offer a streaming service of their own with a full variety of all it’s programmes. Most of it’s news these days is being bought by Reuters instead of the BBC sending out their own investigation teams.

If you love Eastenders, Casualty, and Strictly come dancing then £12.25 seems like a bargain, unfortunately though that’s all the BBC are offering. You get 4 episodes of Sherlock once every 2 years (which soon goes onto Netflix) and 12 episodes of Dr Who a year (though there was no season last year) which are popular with families, aside from that there are no real programmes on the BBC that offer any kind of entertainment value for younger people or families to enjoy. Even MOTD is heavily geared towards armchair glory hunters than real football fans.

Pointless though.

How? I’m pointing out the price points and what they offer in terms of value for money. The only reason why most people pay the TV licence is because they have to in order to watch live TV. Say you were given a choice of paying Netflix’s prices for Netflix’s content or the licence fee for BBC’s content (that they haven’t sold off to UK TV or Netflix), what would you pay for?

How much of your £7.99 goes toward Netflix's global news network, with correspondents stationed in every corner of the world?

It is true that the BBC used to show repeats all the time but now they seem to have sold everything to Netflix. I've started watching 'Peaky Blinders' on Netflix. Series 1 and 2 are on Netflix. Apparently series 3 arrives on Netflix in December. Series 4 starts on BBC in November. BBC won't be repeating series 3 before series 4 and not allowing Netflix to show it limits the BBC's viewers for series 4.
Thier is not a word. "Their" is the correct spelling.

And the cost of buying those repeats will no doubt be transferred to the customer. You are now paying for BBC repeats.

The BBC has its faults, but it's worth it really. The only time I ever really feel like I'm getting something is when Planet Earth or Blue Planet comes out though. As far as news, politics and so on goes, I get it elsewhere. I couldn't do without Match of the Day though.

The price rise is actually only half that.  I don't think anyone's going to see that 50p a month as a dealbreaker.

Hnnng
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire

Mindhunter, a new series with big names like Charlize Theron and David Fincher among its producers, puts a surprisingly compelling spin on the very basic idea of two cops partnering up to solve crimes. We don’t see gruesome acts of violence — outside of the occasional crime-scene photo — and many of the criminals the cops talk to are already in prison. But there’s a creeping, chilly horror at its center, a growing sense that something is irreparably broken in the world, and nobody’s going to put it back together.

The series is built almost entirely around conversation, around trying to understand what’s going on in somebody else’s head by talking to them and getting under their skin. Its big set pieces aren’t gruesome murders, but scenes where killers describe their heinous acts in the dispassionate tones we might reserve for a grocery list.

Mindhunter is not, by any means, a perfect show, nor does it succeed at everything it sets out to accomplish. But its intense focus on the inner workings of the human brain makes for a surprisingly fascinating watch that examines the roots of human darkness without seeming to revel in it.
