    I stuck with Traces to the end but tbh I was a bit bored with it.

    Currently 5 episodes into The Serpent which I am really enjoying. I intended to watch 1 episode last night and ended up sitting up half the night watching 'just one more'. I've read reviews saying it's a bit slow but I quite like that about it. Tahar Rahim is excellent.

    I'm currently working my way through a lot of things on iplayer that I have been saying I am going to watch for ages.

    You've just reminded me to look up one of the tracks. Jump into the Fire (Harry Nilsson). Sure it was used in Goodfellas as well

    Yep, the paranoia scene where heís driving and it finishes playing The Whoís Magic Bus.

    What a talent Harry Nilsson was. A big catalogue with a lot of guff in it but Pandemonium Shadow Show, Nilsonn Schmilsonn & of course Aerial Ballet are excellent albums.

    I see Jenna Coleman is getting panned for her French accent, I'm quite happy to let her away with it.

    The Serpent is really good, only watched 2 episodes so far but really enjoying it.

    Also been watching Ďtracesí on bbc iplayer and enjoying that. Murder mystery set in Dundee with a good cast.

    Anyone watched Wanda Vison? Some of the Marvel films are good but find Marvel hit and miss. My wife loves Marvel though so watched the first episode with her. Very weird, Iíll give it one more episode before Iím out, declaring it utter nonsense.

    Weíre on the penultimate episode 7. I just think the whole story is a bit weak, I hate the constant back and forward in time storytelling, but Mrs Bollah is enjoying it so Iím ploughing on.

    Weíve not long finished the second episode. Itís not for me, first two episodes have been a chore and not particularly interested to find out whatís actually going on. Will let Mrs Modfather watch it solo.

    We obviously don't know what's going on just now, but each episode is going too be based on a different decade of TV, that has me intrigued to see what's going on, get the impression I'm not going to know if I really like it or not until I can piece it all together

    I stuck with The Serpent but I was pretty zoned out by the end. The constant jumping about with the timeline started to grate. As a concept it was fine but for the sake 20-30 second scenes was just excessive. It's one of those shows that suffered because the real story is so mental that a drama is always going to fall a bit short.

    I've just started watching Pole to Pole with Michael Palin. I've never seen it before and loved the 1st couple of episodes. It's both dated and timeless in equal measure.

    I finished The Serpent last night, the timeline jumps did become a tad tedious.

    Pole to Pole is majestic zone out viewing.

    Pole to Pole was brilliant. I remember watching it when it was first out, what was it, late 90s or something? Palin is just such an unarguably decent and warm person you canít help going along with him emotionally as well. And are you getting that on the iPlayer?

    1991. The Soviet Union is still a thing!

    Yep on iPlayer. A few of his travel docs are on there along with a few other classics.

    Me and the Mrs loved it. Normally I watch this kind of story and think "how can anyone be suckered into this kind of ploy", however the Serpent brings it across as plausible.

    The actor Omar Sy, who became a big name in the Untouchables, used to be part of a comedy double act - Omar & Fred. We never see Fred any more while Omar Sy goes from success to success.

    It reminds me a bit of Stephen Fry & Hugh Laurie.

    Anyone watched Ratched? I love One Flew Over The Cuckooís Nest, and Nurse Ratched is such a good character. So was interested in her back story. Reading about it though it seems to be in the same mould as American Horror Story, and while Iíve never seen it, from the trailers and clips Iíve seen donít think itís for me, so not convinced Ratched will be for me either.

    It was all a bit style over substance for me and I gave up on it.

    The more Iím watching the more Iím understanding. So if the original Lupin short stories were an attempt by the French author of the time to echo Conan Doyleís Sherlock Holmes, this is French TV and Netflixís attempt to echo the success of BBC Sherlock?! The style is really really similar.

    I haven't started it yet but I wouldn't be surprised. Most French crime series are pretty awful and any that I like tend to get pulled after 1 season. British & Scandinavian series were beating them hands down and now with the quality of stuff that the likes of Netflix & Amazon are producing, I honestly think they the main French channels have given up.

    Lupin's a Netflix original and you have to give them there due for making stuff in different countries instead of staying safe in the states or UK doing only English language stuff.
