    Yeah it was, it must have been even harder for families affected. They couldn't have cast two better actors as the main characters to tell the story.
    I read a review if it saying it was a bit of a game of 2 halves - 1st part excellent, 2nd unrealistic. Well acted obviously but just a bit unbelievable.

    Did anyone watch the revived Never Mind the Buzzcocks on Sky?

    If you didn't then the original series are easily available online. Watch them instead.

    Aye that's probably fair. I got that wrapped up in the story I never really thought about it.

    Just finished The North Water with Colin Farrell, Stephen Graham and Jack O'Connell, Set In the 1850's aboard a whaling ship, Farrell plays an absolute murderous lunatic set against some amazing scenery, gripping TV although quite dark and brutal at times, great performances throughout the whole cast and being only five episodes it's a quick and easy watch, highly recommended
    Finished it yesterday, tremendous viewing, not unlike The Terror but, a great watch. I've really liked Jack O'Connell since he was on Skins, stole the show there and here and on 71 too. Pete Mullen was his usual brilliant self on The North Water too.

    I got that comparison with the Terror which was equally as good, just brilliant performances all round. Peter Mullen is great, Even when he played a Hillbilly drug dealer in Ozark I thought he nailed it

    Does anyone watch Mortimer & Whitehouse Gone Fishing? One of my favourite programmes of the last few years, Iíve no interest in fishing but the two of them reminiscing and having a laugh in beautiful surroundings is fantastic.

    A real go to watch, especially after a stressful day. Guaranteed happy vibes.

    Has anyone watched Community before? Thinks itís quite old now, but Iíd never heard of it until I stumbled upon a YouTube video of all its movie references side by side with the actual scene. They were quite good so giving it a try.

    Watched the first episode and it was decent. Only half an hour an episode so a quick and easy watch.

    Itís ok. Not as good as a lot of other US sitcoms out there though, The Office, Always Sunny, Curb, 30 Rock, Parks & Rec, Brooklyn 99, are all better.

    Yes it's great. Probably tails off in later seasons and gets a bit too clever for itself.

    From memory there is a Goodfellas episode that is amazing in the first season. It's all very meta but if you're a big movie buff and you enjoy the references then it's good fun.

    If anyone is looking for another comedy in a similar vein to this type of stuff, one underseen gem IMO is "Party Down". There are only 2 seasons but it's brilliant.

    Very good. Guessed the main twists in it though.

    The dubbing on some of Netflix programmes leaves a lot to be desiredÖI ended up whacking it into subtitles and enjoyed it much more.

    Quite why most of the characters in their dubbed series have to have American accents is beyond me.

    They also seem incapable of layering the voice over into the main sound so the voices always seem to be sitting Ďon topí of everything else which is rather disconcerting.

    Haha. The majority of what I watch on French TV is dubbed. When I was still in the UK I used to find watching dubbed films really annoying - after 17 years here I hardly even notice it now.

    My ex wife used to translate English language films and TV series from English into German. I used to deliver the raw translations to the German dubbing producers and got to know some of them on a friendly basis and used to spend time watching them work. The first job was to adapt the raw translation into something that worked with the lip synchronisation of the original film. This is why sometimes the subtitles don't match with what is actually being said. I also got to know the synchronisation voices of a few famous tv characters like Captain Picard, the Simpsons, Arthur Daley and Dr Hannibal Lecter to name a few. The Germans do a great job in synchronisation, which is a pity because most of their neighbours only do subtitles and their standards of English are much higher.

    The finale of Squid Games wasnt what Id expected at all, just didnít see it coming. Such an unsettling idea, there must be an appetite for such dark TV because itís been a viewing figure phenomenon for Netflix.

    Iím half way through Squid Game. Itís actually annoying that itís so popular as I have seen spoilers from memes on social media. One of which is obviously a twist at the end given why apparently happened in the episode I watched last night.
