Handmaids Tale is just unreal imo. The direction, score, cinematography (if its called that on telly lol) are all superb on top of the acting which is also incredible. The relationship between June, Mrs Waterford and Aunt Lydia is too much.
 
Started Glow S2 last night, more of the same which is fine by me. Maron literally playing himself.

i must be honest, I thought handmaid's tale was some bullshit BBC period drama so I've ignored it. 
 
now I've seen it's an american produced dystopian thing I'll watch it. 
 
fuck BBC shit. mostly everything they do is doggo.

Your opinion is probably based on very few programs seen, esp if you've missed progs on iPlayer. Some of the bbc3 stuff is excellent. Some of the British comedy is absolutely excellent.

been through this before - a few bits of comedy are ok but when it comes to one hour series the BBC ain't got shit on HBO and other american studios. nowt, not even close. 
 
and again, it's a personal opinion. not trying to change anyone's mind and mine ain't gonna get changed either.

just catching up on Altanta series 2. first three episodes are absolutely outstanding. easily the best thing currently on TV imo
 
that episode with him hanging out at - basically - spotify, talking to their creative team was a bit too close to the bone though lol

Some good reggae gets played in Harlem’s Paradise too. Cheesy series compared to the last but the vibes are on point

The blues and jazz definitely set the mood. There are moments of cringe about it tho.

Absolute horse shit Daz.

Planet Earth? Olympics, Wimbledon and Glasto coverage? BBC 4 scando output (wallander, the bridge etc..), Line of Duty, The Fall...

Fair enough if its not for you but they do period stuff better than anyone (Jonathan Strange, Taboo, Wolf Hall and War and Peace come to mind recently) because they've been doing it for years and years with the sort of budgets that a public broadcaster (and the creative freedom that comes with that) would never normally see.

Its why it's output is sold all over the world including the US.

There's a period adaptation of war of the world's due at Christmas that I'm buzzing about.

will allow factual programs such as Planet Earth, sports coverage and Glastonbury, obviously.
 
my issue is with the non-factual output. it's shite.

So special.
 
I have it number one on my all time list, slightly above the Olympics, then Breaking Bad a close third.
 
Tough to leave Wimbledon out but it really went downhill after season 172.

Handmaids tale is probably the most relentlessly grim thing on TV. It refuses to give you any hope for more than 2 episodes at a time.
