Re- Defending the Guilty. I saw and enjoyed the pilot which was broadcaset last year, so was pleased to see that a full series had been commisioned (but disappointed that ep 1 was a repeat of the pilot).

The new series of The Circle is strangely, horribly compelling. Richard Madeley is passing himself off as a 27 year old woman. Beyond the cringe.

Not watched any of the previous series. Is it something you can watch as a one off series?

The first series I saw was the third so there was quite a lot less backstory then but I reckon it'd be worth a try and if you haven't got a clue what's going on, wait for the bits with Audrey Fleurot in them :P

Well, the last minute of Succesion Series 2 set up Series 3 in a rather exhilerating way. Shame we'll have to wait several months for it.

I would love to see Chernobyl as the reviews are great, but I have no idea how to. I’m living in Germany and have Amazon Prime but it’s not on that. Maybe they will release it on DVD sometime, I think I have a DVD player in a drawer somewhere.
It's on DVD and Amazon Prime now. Quite expensive, but there are some on ebay.

Just finished watching Preacher on Prime.

Well done, well written and acted.

At last a series that knows when to call it a day (4 series)

You can pick up the hand of Seth Rogen in the dialogue at times.

Well worth watching.
