Obviously you'll be all over Engrenages (Spiral) on BBC like a rash, then, CC?

Been a great series.

I have just started watching this recently, on season 2 now, initially I avoided it because although I like "quality" space movies they are few and far between and I thought this might be another Battlestar Galactica. I even started and quit after the first few minutes but then gave it another try and boy is it good. Good story-line that holds your attention, great effects like the zero G stuff and excellent space shots.

I don't watch a lot of TV so its taken me a while to get through the 5 series of Z Nation, i loved every minute if you haven't seen it its definitely worth a look.

I've been like this for the best part of a year and still not gotten the bullet. Might have to just jump in!

Dark is brilliant. Literally the best thing on Netflix in my book. A series that rewards a bit of effort to follow. Acting, story, and, especially, casting are wonderful.

Alice has all the Korean tropes if you watch a lot of them. It's a bit daft really, but I enjoyed it well enough.

Just watched the half way through sort of finale to The Nevers from HBO and suddenly the real annoyance of stuff seeming missed out from Ep 5 makes a whole lot more sense, and it retrospectively makes the rest of the series a whole lot smarter too. If you can put aside the plonker who directed this first set of six, then it’s a lot of fun steampunk Victorian gender politics Sci Fi - now that’s not a description I’ve ever used before!

Fargo Season 4 is out on 4 player, very watchable though all the ads grate somewhat.
I'm watching it weekly on C4. I have it on Season Record. Then I watch it half an hour 'late'. and FF through the ads.
