Time started on BBC 1 last night, prison drama with Stephen Graham and Sean Bean. Very intense!
watched the second episode on iPlayer tonight. Really gritty drama. Edge of the seat stuff. We’re hooked!

If you've got Sky, Mare of Eastown is superb. It's dark and gritty with a fantastic performance by Kate Winslet, she plays a cop with issues brilliantly.

Both the above are on my 'to watch' list.

If you're not all watching Motherland, you should be. Brilliantly written and performed.

Really enjoyed 'Blinded: Those Who Kill' in the Saturday evening foreign slot on BBC Four. It's a Danish drama (subtitled) that covers a Police investigation into a serial killer. The most unusual thing about it is that it reveals the killer very early on, so you're watching the Police trying to solve the various cases while you know who the killer is.

Watched the first series of Clarkson's Farm, very good not as much silliness as I was expecting and surprisingly informative at times.

How can no one have mentioned Loki yet🤩, surely I can’t be the only one here who likes the new MCU series sets?? Wandavision was exceptional though the ending didn’t quite hit the target in my view. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was a bit dull and wasn’t that great. However Tom Hiddleston is brilliant as Loki and the first two episodes have set the bar pretty high for intrigue with a good measure of wit.
It’s also great since my children all watch it and like to talk about it too ☺.

I am enjoying this. He has done more for farming in 1 series than Coutryfile have in 20 odd years. It a a true reflection of farming with all the red tape and long hours for little reward

Watched two episodes of Katla and hoping to drag The WIse One away from Lupin for episode 3. In fact I'm just so dreading what's going to happen in Lupin when Assane goes into the apartment that I'm procrastinating.

I’ve had a few people suggest Clarksons Farm so I started watching that. Probably too early to recommend as I’ve only seen the first episode but I thought it was excellent and can’t wait to watch the rest. Anyone else seen it?

Best programme I've seen this year and I did not like Clarkson but he was really good in this and has helped the farmers cause no end

Light watching but with some serious and apt plots and programs the west wing found to be a good watch. Have just watched the Clarkson farm and is very funny in places. If you’re into sifi try watching the expanse. But you just can’t beat game of throne.

Yes, enjoyed this and really did give a true account to farming and all the red tape.

Thanks for the heads up on Lupin 2. I didn't even know they were making another season but really enjoyed the first.

My wife wants me to watch The Handmaid's Tale with her (which I'm sure is very good, but just looks a bit 'girly' to me) - I'm now hoping I can delay that by bringing Lupin 2 to the top of the list.

I really don't think 'girly' is the right word to describe the Handmaid's Tale. ashock1

Do you mean the series currently being screened, or from the beginning?

From the beginning - I've never watched any of it. I'm aware of the book and everyone says the TV series is very good, I'm just not sure it's my thing. 'Girly' was probably the wrong word to use.
