Zerozerozero blew me away, wasn't expecting it to be that good and well made. Can't help but think if it was Hbo or Netflix it would be lauded.

Bit late on this one but how good is Succession? Best thing I've seen in ages. Just finished season one.

It's fucking great, from the synopsis I thought I'd hate it but couldn't be further from the truth, it's the only series I've watched twice! Proper can't wait for season 3

Have you seen more than the first two episodes? I’ve only seen the first on Sky last week, but thought that was great - looking forward to the rest.

The Cecil Hotel doc on Netflix - fucking hell, not the best of doc's the story in itself is insane and the footage in the elevator is one of those things you see once and can't be "unseen"… The manager of the hotel is for sure hiding something, and the fact there is footage cut from the CCTV video makes things more suspicous. The stuff about skid row is interesting too, and the hotel rebranding itself to make itself look "clean"..

If you're not familiar with the story of Elisa Lamb, watch it!

The tucci on Italy series was alright. Felt a bit 'Bourdain lite' but still worth a watch if you're into those kind of shows.

Iplayer documentaries on Manchester gangs and one on The Silk Road are definitely worth a watch.
