Binged Midnight Mass this weekend. Not a touch on White Lotus. Some of those monologues were such bullshit. Completely overdone and unnecessary. It was a struggle finishing it, shouldn't have bothered.

Squid Game next.

Midnight Mass made me want to watch Salem's Lot again so it scratched that Stephen King itch at least. But yeah, the speeches were excessive (that last one Laughing out loud Roll Eyes fucking die already). Squid Game was Cool. I find Netflix has a lot of great foreign language shows.

Yeah I enjoyed Squid Game as well. Funny how I couldn't see it working in English but set somewhere else it seems to work a bit better. Not sur eif that makes sense.

I rate Billions. Excellent dialogue, well acted and it's very polished. Very over the top and entertaining.

Just finished series 5 and looking forward to 6 already.

Tier below the all time greats, Wire, Sopranos and Succession (early stages know) in my opinion.

Yeah it's definitely watchable but can get a bit samey in the whole tit for tat plotline.

As snaye says, no wire, sopranos or mad men, but a good watch.

After watching the new episode of Succession I'm convinced this is one of the GOAT shows

Were season 1 and season 2 not enough to convince you?

Some really good TV about at the minute.

Dopesick - drama about the sackler family/Purdue pharma/opoid crisis in the US. Really enjoying it so far. One of the best things I've seen recently.

Only Murders in the Building - really enjoying this one too. Murder mystery comedy. Thought I wouldn't enjoy but Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez are actually quite good together.

Mare of East Town - another great show. Kate Winslet is so good in this.

No way Succession is any where near anything good. Am I missing something ?
Same people that like it probably like Wolf of Wall Street

Just started the second season and it seems to be gaining momentum now. Not quite Sopranos or the wire yet though… Laughing out loud
