Anyone still watching The Outsider? Still good but dropped off the pace a tad maybe. I was terrified the other day watching it alone.

Binned 'The Stranger' off after 4 eps. Oooh, our perfect middle class, bi-fold door closing life has been turned upside down.

Good. Cunts.

Unable to start The Outsider yet as my Sky’s off whilst the house has some work, getting on it as soon as it’s back.

Doing Dirty John at the minute and it’s great, Love Eric Bana and he’s brilliant in this.

think it's completely gone to pot. started off so well but the last couple of eps have been awful. Terrible storytelling and feel like we know way more than all the characters, it's boring watching them get told all the stuff we've already seen then seeing them not believe it etc. find it hard to care about any of them either

The frustrating thing for me is that all the cast are brilliant, the premise and story work but it just drags in what feels like an attempt to create some sort of slow creepy atmopshere. I like slow burning stuff but this seems unnecessarily stretched and in parts dumbed down. There's individual bits in it that are still really good and i'll watch till the end but its deffo tailed off.

Being stuck in a room on me own I’ve watched a bit of Netflix.

Ozark series 3. Was brilliant. There’s an episode in it that is one of the saddest things I’ve ever seen on telly even though it’s made up it put a lump in my throat.

In 3 days I watched 27 episodes of Bloodline. And whilst I enjoyed it (got a bot shit towards the end) what fucked me up the most was I was waking every hour in the night as I was dreaming I was on the show because I’d watched so much of it Laughing out loud Well fucked me up. CSB.

Started Tiger King today. Oklahomo Joe is fuckin wild Laughing out loud

Yes Burt. Same feelings. Only watched it as it was filmed on the streets around me, but seems to be a common thread through Harlan Cobden's plots involving middle class communities, local schools and plods. Have no investment in it any sympathy for any of the characters.
