I spent all day yesterday watching The Sinner on Netflix. It was excellent, avoided being to obvious, was nicely paced and was a good self contained series.

There making a second series of it, but I’m not sure how they would continue the story, unless they tell a different one.

Sacked off the Arrested Development remix, wasn’t really offering much that the 4 series already did. Plus the “property of Fox television” watermarks in half the clips were annoying

Atlanta is being showed on iplayer. Very good tv so far. Glover is a surreal writer!

Not sure what you were expecting from the ‘remix’

New scenes were made with more of the cast joined up. Thought it might be marginally better but the story is still the same that’s it’s not immediately obvious which ones are new

Life in Pieces on Amazon Prime is pretty good; American comedy done very well.

Mentioned this a while back. Thought it was excellent and a nice surprise. Really well paced and good acting.

Finished line of duty season 4 last night. Can’t wait for season 5. They need to get to the gang soon. Amazed there hasn’t been a US remake yet.

Gob isn't fat in real life so must be intentional

I've not watched it but apparently idea was to make it less of a gimmicky series and a bit more linear. From the justification from the maker, his intention of the 4th series was obviously to make it watchable from any episode onwards, but that fucked with the fundamental humour of AD - ie repetition and interaction with the main characters mostly. So he wanted to bring that back. The guy made one of the best and most influential comedies of the last 2 decades so probably worth giving him the benefit of the doubt
 
 
Finally started watching The Defiant Ones. Such a fucking great series, I'm on ep 3 and fucking every minute
 
Can't believe he was shagging Stevie Nicks...what a jammy fucker.

No doubt but the content wasn’t great in the 4th season was it? Remixing it isn’t going to account for lack of humour.

5th season is ok, Tobias kills it, still not peak AD levels though

Honestly I don't know, the cut makes a big difference so I hoped it was salvageable. I guess not! Like Bad Santa goes from one of my favourite comedies ever to barely a laugh when I go from the regular version to the directors cut.

Eurgh...ok Defiant Ones turned to shit in the 4th episode where they spend 30 minutes banging on about their marketing campaign for shit headphones. Really took a nose dive, it's like two completely different shows. Talking about groundbreaking music, and then a merger with Apple? Not exactly a crescendo. 
 
I was super hyped for them talking about Dre 2001, and they just completely glossed over it.

i clearly just have higher standards of male beauty than you mate 
 
in all seriousness, compared to s1-3, i found it quite jarring how much older, rougher and fatter he is. george michael and lindsay are quite distracting too imo. as is the lack of charm and any real wit...
 
i will give it a couple more eps though, really want it to be good again

Watched the first 2 eps of new AD last night and thought it was on good form tbh. Second episode had me laughing out loud several times. I actually didn't think S4 was THAT bad tbf. It wasn't great but it wasn't as difficult to follow as people made out. 
 
Started watching a documentary on Netflix called The Confession Tapes. Really interesting doc about people being forced into making confessions for murders they didn't commit. Highly recommend.

Defiant ones. I agree with what most people have said. It’s fascinating to watch the hip hop chart through 90s to now through their eyes. Especially the Death Row v Bad Boys beef. Plus all the groups jimmy lovine was associated with was a good integrator.

Reallly good but yeah they fucked it with that Beats hard on at the end. I guess it’s ironic because you’’d never get Dre to open up and reveal shit unless it’s for an end game. Whole thing was just a product placement

So Atlanta is fully sick.  Just binged both seasons this week. 
 
The second season especially, some of the surrealism catches you completely off guard, but works so well.  
 
Darius is an absolute G.  And I think I'm in love with Donald Glover just a little bit

Fauda on Netflix is really good! Israeli show about the conflict with Hamas. Surprisingly not as one sided as you’d expect. Like a better and more violent Homeland
