What Have You Been Watching?

Recommended Posts

I recently started watching Deception, it's about a Magician that starts helping the FBI solve weird cases where stuff like misdirection might have been used. It's ok if you don't take it too seriously... I only mention it on here because in an absolutely top of the line case of "so bad it's good" casting, there is a recurring role of a genius engineer that creates all of the magicians tricks... and who has that gone to?? Only Vinnie fucking Jones :) Still doing his usual Millwall player voice, mannerisms and everything :) Makes me laugh every time he has a scene, who the hell thought that would work well? :)

Watching a documentary about Bill Cosby on BBC. Got me thinking, someone like Bill Cosby could have had his pick of women who wanted to have sex with him. At what point do you start to decide raping is preferable to an endless option of consentual sex? Cosby seems a special kind of nonce.

New series on Netflix "Safe" starring Dexter, Hustle's Danny Blue & Sherlock's Mary Watson (the actors obvs not the characters)

 

Another missing child series but was pretty watchable.

I've been watching Damned. It's a low key fairly sombre comedy set in Social Services. Very similar to Getting On.

 

Also started watching ER recommendation Camping. So far so good.

Be careful, i watched the first few because i found Vinnie funny, then i somehow got into it and now i'm pissed off because the network cancelled it and i want to know what was going to happen next :)

Seems from her IMDB they are filming another series of camping and there is another one she has done called Sally4Ever

Julia Davis is off her nut and her comedy is fantastically original. Have you seen Hunderby? It's fucking brilliant and every bit as bonkers as Nighty Night and Camping.

Torrents. Mostly Piratebay or limewire but all over really. Take your pick :) https://www.lifewire.com/top-torrent-sites-alternatives-to-kat-2483512

 

Not seen Hunderby yet, might watch that next. Not even heard of Sally4Ever, has it been broadcast yet?

The Defiant Ones.  Four parts.  This was pretty damn good for three episodes, the last episode was like an advert for Beats headphones and Apple Music with lots of non-factual statements made in favour of both.  The first three episodes 9/10, the last 1/10.  You know what to do.

My wife has been watching Stan Lee's Lucky Man and therefore I have too.  Every episode seems to have the same theme, main character is suspected by his fellow police officers of being a criminal, villain is really the criminal, villain gets caught by main character, somebody gets killed among cliched action scenes, fellow police officers realize that the main character isn't a criminal until the next episode when it starts all over again.

This is the kind of shit that you'd expect to find on ITV but for some reason it's on some other channel.

Are the football league goals on any of the normal channels this season? I watched that thing with Prutton on Sky the other week and it was pretty awful, made the Channel Five one from last year look decent.
