    I was fascinated by the one that depicted a proposed coup against Harold Wilson's Labour Government that would have put Lord Mountbatten in charge as a universally-respected figurehead. I was in university at the time and I remember rumblings of such a proposed coup. Must read more about it.

    just remember The Crown is a drama and plays fast and loose with the truth.

    The Messiah is fascinating.

    Speculation that series 2, if there is a series 2, could take it in a completely different direction.

    The New Pope looks sumptuous.

    Agreed, and much more watchable than I thought it would be.

    The big reveal in the final episode that he is a Liverpool fan was a nice surprise! :D

    The hint is that he is to become THE very naughtiest boy of all naughty boys ever in series 2.

    COBRA on Sky is looking good. I’m 2 episodes in.
    And wonderful to see the beautiful Marsha Thomason back on UK television.

    Watched the first 2 episodes yesterday - will do the rest today. Few things make me lol now. This does.

    But I do have a juvenile sense of humour.

    Recommended.

    "Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez" is now on Netflix.

    The documentary tells the story of a rising 23-year old NFL star who was convicted of murder. It touches on quite a few subjects (the entitlement of sports stars, repressed sexual orientation, the effects of CTE) and is, at times, a tough watch.

    Any good Hook? (Seen it pop up as an ad this last week or so)

    Titans on Netflix is excellent if you're a superhero fan.

    gassor There may be more posts after this.

    Haven't finished it yet but it's hard to comprehend the workings of the mindset that would carry out what is alleged so far.

    Loved Series 1 saving Series 2 up so I can binge it

    Treadstone on Prime is pretty good so far, couple episodes in

    Been catching some shows I've just skimmed past for ages for some reason, few that I've really liked but will be old hat to most I expect - Heroes, Hannibal, Sense8 and The Americans - all well above average.

    I thought it was very well done, and I learned quite a few things that I had not heard while this was an ongoing news story.

    But as I suggested, it is not a feel good show! As Gassor said, it is impossible to fully understand how someone like Hernandez could have done what he did, but I do think it is good to shed light on the societal and medical issues surrounding the case.

    Well worth a view IMO.

    Agreed. The series follows the books closely and the visuals are good. What really impressed me most though was the casting - they really nailed Amos, Naomi, Avasarala and Bobbi.

    Yes agree, all very well done. Best hard Sci Fi series in quite a while imo.
