just finished The Alienist, a couple of years old, only two season worth but each season is a complete story (case) so there's no being canned halfway through shit

period investigative/psychological crime drama with a good solid cast

enjoyed it, would recommend for those into that kind of shit

On paper it doesn’t really appeal to me but we have it a go and are now flying through it. Super show!

One of those shows where, if you take it for what it is, the enjoyment is immense.

Plot holes galore, and the Taylor Sheridan ego/libertarian thing gets more than a bit heavy-handed, but some of the characters are absolutely top notch.

Looking forward to season 5 in November...

Just watched the first episode of The Walk-In on ITV. Hadn’t realised it was based on true events, inc the murder of the MP Jo Cox. Pretty grim stuff but well done. Rest is on ITV hub.

Stick with it. Very gritty in parts.

Into series 2 now. It’s so edge all the time. Constantly expecting bad things to happen every second. Series 2 does start to get the plot moving a bit. I only hope series 3 has an actual ending and not just that they decided to end it. I liked how they crow barred Gabriel Byrne saying ‘the chances of that are billions to one’, which brought a smile.

Edgerunners - just binged it (not hard, fucking 25 mins an episode, i hate that shit), really good, always been a fan of cyberpunk since fuck knows (oh the days of Shadowrun on the snes, has it been bettered by any cyberpunk game?)

so the universe (from the game Cyberpunk) is way more up my street than Arcane (i'd call that soft cyberpunk traits) but Arcane is superior in every way

not pissing on edgerunners, loved it, defo would recommend, but not on Arcane's level

Inside Man is worth a watch, because anything with both David Tennant and Stanley Tucci is worth a watch. Its good but you do have to suspend your disbelief for the 5-10mins of what happens for the main character to get himself into his predicament. Its a bit silly, but I guess worth it for the setup.

I think I'm kinda tired of the auteur-detective trope but I'm willing to forgive it for Tucci in this case  ;D

Its a lot better than the final season of Sherlock, that's for sure.

I thought it started brilliantly, but halfway through turned into something else, still very enjoyable though.

I really enjoyed Dolly Wells performance'

Has this finished now?

Yes

Inside Man was a bit tonally all over the place. It was mixing up some very serious stuff with genuine LOL moments - I especially like the way they shoe-horned Tennant saying "I'm the fucking vicar!" in each episode. But in the other hand:
Spoiler
No way did they earn the shock death of his wife

Overall, slightly disappointing in the end to be honest.

I feel exactly the same, Still liked it, but from ep3 onwards, It seemed to go to a different direction. Was it a dark comedy??

I thought it spent too long focussing on the sordid details of his pathetic life. But some of the side character stories were really well done and acted. Especially the 6th episode I think that focussed on the deaf victim. Was really heartbreaking

And yeah Richard Jenkins does a great job as his dad. I just wish it spent more time telling the victims stories rather than watching him jerk off to some roadkill or whatever.

Yeah. There's a balance and there is a very deliberate attempt to tell the victim's story with Ep6. However, I'm not sure more victim-based stuff would have helped tell the story of JD. While it's didn't sympathise with him, you were becoming emotionally invested in his journey and you have to remind yourself exactly what he is getting up to. His eventual demise was shown in a very visceral and violent manner, which I think was the 'payback' to show that he had it coming.

The best and most realistic feeling modern series of the genre by a large margin though for me was Le Bureau des Legendes,highly recommended.

Thanks for this, mate. I've been watching the past week and am onto the early stages of season three. It's excellent - really well written and acted and directed, the characters are great, and the tension has steadily gotten more and more pronounced. Really good stuff.

You're very welcome mate  :wave.

Yeah i agree the writing and acting is top notch and the series feels well..real.

Going into it myself didn't have many expectations except knowing Mathieu Kassowitz from before as the director of the imo wonderful La Haine,binged it once i started.

Re: War of the Worlds
I couldn't wait and downloaded the season (with French subtitles only) and watched it with the subtitles fed through google translate and corrected.

I thought it was pretty good, up to the standard of the previous seasons. I do like me some hard science-fiction (or towards the harder end, I don't know enough Quantum Mechanics to know if it was all nonsense)
