Wild Combination - Arthur Russel

On prime. If anyone’s into AR and not seen this then watch it. Felt like it could have been a few more hours

Definitely think it get's much better again after that episode.

Cobra Kai. Threw this on thinking it would be bad and it is mostly but it’s also very entertaining especially if you grew up watching the OG Karate Kid. I’ve blitzed through season 1. Episodes are only 25 minutes long.

It’s great - 5 episodes in.
First 2 eps are next level for TV looks wise.

Finally done all 7 series of Homeland. Loved it.

Moved on to Narcos with the Mrs at home and Designated Survivor at work.

Only 3 episodes so far but Tehran on Apple TV is definitely worth a watch

Just watched both seasons, loved it

Going to rewatch karate kid tomorrow now, feel I should of done this first

David Tennant is so good in this, there’s the bonus episode in which he narrates footage of the real Des which is also worth watching

Can’t think what to watch next as I’m quite picky, any suggestions on something easy to follow and not overly long, Sky, Netflix or prime?

All very decent shows. Add Mr Inbetween to that list. Best of those 4 and not a Yank show either.

Though final ep of Dave was Ubercool

Has anyone ever seen banshee? Its a few years old but probably the best tv series I have ever seen and no one ever seems to have even heard of it.

Yeah banshee was good (first 2 seasons) pretty old now.

High Maintenance is also good and a 30 min show

Des was good although the best thing about it was Tennant by a long way. So unsettling.

Looks so much like him.

The capture on iplayer, 3 episodes in and it’s getting decent.
