Trusted your judgement so gave it a whirl, TCB.

It could be the best telly ever (not a 'Wire' beater obvs) but as soon as the dubbed English voices kicked in I was 7 again and getting wound up by 'The Flashing fucking Blade'. I was out at 5m33s.

Laughing out loud strong effort. I watched the first episode in English too until someone told me that's just the default. Watch it in German with subtitles. Bit long I know but fewer Timm Thaler vibes.

I’m finally about to finish the last two episodes of Breaking Bad tonight.

Can I go straight on to the film then or do I need to watch Better Call Saul first?

The best show I've watched in years. Not read the book, but will defo get a copy of it now.

Two leading actors were superb and will go onto bigger and better things.

Cheers all.

Brooker's Antiviral wipe is a good watch if you haven't got round to it yet.

'I Know This Much is True' on HBO is worth a watch. I used to really dislike Mark Ruffalo but he's been doing a lot of good work in recent years.

Finished Last Dance today, loved how Phil Jackson let Dennis do his thing. Knew Rodman played for San Antonio previously but didn’t know the backstory of him and the Pistons Cool
