    Re Hell on Wheels S04E11 - FFS Bohannon, tourniquet his leg back up, chuck him out the window and claim the death to be from the fall when trying to escape. Fuck's sake man, for an apparently intelligent guy that was thick as pigshit. :facepalm:

    watched the first series of Bosch this week.

    Enjoyed it, it's not gonna set the world alight but it's a solid cop show.

    Some of the interplay between characters reminded me of homicide, life on the streets

    Isn't it just; great casting, cool dialogue and S & A are superb psychos. Hope they make more.

    Sorry, in reference to Hap & Leonard.

    Just finished S04 of Hell on Wheels. Can't recommend it strongly enough - watch it; s'great. :cool:
    Got half way through the 1st episode and I was bored to death tbh - does it get better?
    Black Sails and Vikings are both excellent, but I was watching them via bittorrent and I can't remember where I was up to. :mad: :(
    Just started this and first impressions are really good. Even the title music gets a gold star.

    Hap and Leonard? I enjoyed it from the get-go, but then I'm a fan of Joe R's dialogue from his novels, but do try and hang on in there for the appearance of Soldier and Angel.

    'Turn' gets better and better, imo, good recommendation from the aptly named Spymaster.

    Didn't make it through the first episode. Glad I didn't pay for it.

    I'm half way through episode 2, and not being very familiar with the American Civil War I have to admit that I'm a tad confused as to what the fuck's occurin'... :confused: :oops:

    Same here. Next up is Ep 3 for me and I don't really know what's going on but I still kind of like it.

    My recommendation is don't watch Extant. It's fucking shit. The first few episodes are okay but half way through series 2 you'll lose the will to live.

    I quite enjoyed that! Admittedly it was low maintenance viewing and I tended to watch it hungover of a Saturday morning, half asleep.

    I've seen some good reviews for the first episode, fingers crossed.

    It's the American copy on Amazon though.

    The original (and better) European version is available on Sky on demand.

    Ploughed through Turn over the last week or so.

    Really enjoyed it.

    Just about to start Black Sails.

    Did you watch all 3 seasons?

    Yeh, Turn really grew on me, binged seasons 1-2, and up to 5 on the 3rd; personally thought it got better and better. Good wrong un in Simcoe too.

    Yeah, i've watched up to the most recent episode. Got loads of time on my hands at the moment as Wife and kids are abroad for a month.

    Yeah, he is a good villain. But his voice is annoying :D

    Weird isn't it? I was wondering if that was the actor's normal voice. Looked him up on Youtube and there's a discussion about it.

    Hap and Leonard and Mr. Robot are really quite good. So is Tumble Leaf for the little one. Some very good stop-motion stuff for pre-schoolers that doesn't talk down at them.

    Red Oaks and Lucifer are crap, but endearing and enjoyable crap.

    Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is somewhat incomprehensible, even by anime standards. But gorsh it looks good.

    Constantine supposed to be an abomination if you've ever read the graphic novels. I haven't. It's perfectly enjoyable fluff.

    I think Wishenpoof is aggravating as all hell, but the boy likes it. Peppa Pig balances it out.

    I see they've got Sons of Anarchy on there. That's pretty good.

    Say what now???!!! How did I not notice this?

    I only got up to half way through season two and have been meaning to watch the rest since; you may have just made my day. :cool:

    keanu reeves did a better job. Travesty compared to hellblazer comics but tolerable even though I gave up 4 eps in. Lucifer though, I refuse to watch. Having the Devil run a swish bar isn't enough, you have to add that vital american tv ingredient- the cop show angle! The devil working for anyone. This is lucifer, he told the Almighty Throne to stick his job ffs.

    felixthecat are we there yet?

    This. I wouldn't have chosen to watch it without the recommendations on here. I think it's excellent :thumbs:

    Have now finished black sails and really really enjoyed it.

    So much to like about it, character development, action, sets, dialogue

    Thanks for the heads up urban.
