There's an uploader on KAT who does all the fl up's from UK tv...hopefully he'll sort them out.
Didn't get to watch The Last Panthers last night or tonight. Hopefully there is a torrent or a stream out soon.
This is the uploader I meant.

This is up on KAT.

Just got series 3 of The Bridge on, bloody brilliant although missing Martin a bit. Just excellent writing, Saga is such a fantastic character, brings a lot of humour to leaven the grimness of the crimes, but without being at all silly.
The Last Panthers is up on TVC as well, Sam.

So I need to apologise here...sorry....it only took me 6 months to post abar it.....luckily me mate asked for it yesterday or..... ;D

I watched this series earlier this year and thought then and still do now that this is imo, the best new series I've watched this year.

This is available on IPT. It premieres in the U.S. on the 14th of this month.

Spotless.

In London Jean Bastières leads a quiet family life with his wife and two children for fifteen years. Perfectly integrated he manages a crime scene cleaning business.

The balance of the harmonious existence is nevertheless disrupted when the brother, Martin, he has not seen for years, reappears. With this bulky brother, the secrets and wounds of Jean's past resurface. Faced with old demons he had chosen to bury, Jean will also face other problems. When Martin arrives with the body of a woman hidden in his van, neither one suspects a year with serious consequences just starting.



This is another of Canal +'s efforts. This great. I defy any of y'all to not enjoy this.

Started watching fargo, absolutely brilliant.  Love it.  Dry dark humour, engaging story line and some decent acting from billy bob.  I find his character fascinating.  Theres been a few laugh out loud moments for me.  Really enjoying it.

I'm avoiding the fargo thread incase i see spoilers! :)

If you havent seen it, i highly recommend it.

Has anyone here watched dark matter? I watched the entire first season today. It's quite good, though not exceptional. If you like Sci fi, it's worth a shot for sure :)
I watched most of season 1 (think I missed ep 12).  Got to agree with you, not exceptional by any means unless you're really into your Sci-fi.

On a separate note, has anyone been following River on BBC One I think? 
Slow burner but very dark.  Will tick a lot of boxes for some folk on here...

I'll just leave this here.....Porridge will be reappear as the prison sitcom returns with modern remake. The prison sitcom will focus on Fletcher’s grandson, after he is jailed for computer hacking. Just a pilot order at the moment.

The reason I never added my thoughts to the post was I didn't trust myself to be....polite and objective...I'm a tad calmer now....I'm still an arl moaner like.

To exacerbate the....annoyance I felt I then read they had approached James Corden for the lead....he can't...so...they're thinking of asking Johhny Vegas...

The only upside to the pilot is the fact that they have the two original writers onboard for the script-it still ain't working...they're not going to achieve the dynamic that was all important to the the shows success

If they are to do this and make it a success, then they really need to use a decent comedy actor, not a standup who does some acting. What made Porridge was Barker's performance (or his delivery of the lines). I personally wish they wouldn't try to recreate things. They'll probably try to recreate Fawlty Towers without any involvement by John Cleese some day and it'll be a disaster.

Second series of Review ended and confirmed itself to be an utter masterpiece.
Seriously one of the greatest seasons a comedy show has ever produced.

Were you drunk when you wrote this?

I really like the show but to call it a ''masterpiece'' is certainly pushing it.

It definitely has it's great moments but there are some quite, well, fairly poor episodes in terms of overall laughs.

I remember reading your post before I started watching and I had really high hopes for this but I'd give it 3 and a half stars with a few eps of season 2 left. Hope it pushes for a 4 before the end.

Oh this will please you then. ;D

The Good Life, Are You Being Served?, Up Pompeii! and Keeping Up Appearances are all programmes the BBC are looking at in terms of  returns as  specials in the hope I would think that there's enough interest to do a series. Personally, I can't see any of them creating any interest at all...as is said above, they're of their time..what next...Love thy Neighbour...Just give the money to young writers and filmmakers and be a bit more adventurous.

I'd actually love to see someone else have a go at a 'prison sitcom', but there's no need to attach the Porridge name to it. It simply can't live up to its predecessor. Doubt we'll hear of this again to be honest, can't see it getting past the pilot.

Thank you,thank you..thank you!!  Post of the year.   

This...I've only seen the opener is what is exactly what I meant in my post.....it's outrageously, hilariously funny and shows what can be done when new talent is given a chance. This is fresh, beautifully written,from what I've seen-and appears to have no problems with talking about sex whatsoever...and shows off a part of a city that normally is only shown in a much different light-a great representation of inner city working people.

I'm off to binge this......thanks mate...I would have missed this otherwise....much appreciated. :wave

Just binged watched upto episode 7 of Spotless.

Have to say is great.  A must watch.

The copies I have, have the "previously on Spotless" start in French, then the show is in English.  Except for the flash backs to childhood and when they receive text messages.   Strange.

Catastrophe funniest thing on TV at the moment.
I might have agreed with this before last night...in the UK that is...that's more a reflection on me....I don't really watch UK tv....but as I said earlier this year, Catastrophe was funny....in a similar vein to Horgan's earlier works...but still worth a watch

Having watched the whole series of Chewing Gum yesterday evening....Catastrophe isn't remotely as funny as Chewing Gum. I was screaming laughing several times during each episode out loud-it's very reminiscent of the earlier seasons of Shameless....a must watch and the best new comedy series I've seen this year.

Any comedy that has the line.."I have to say I'm partial to a bit of c*nt" in it can only be lauded.  Brilliant series.

The Bastard Executioner cancelled after 1 season. No surprise really.

No surprise though I agree. A TV program has to get the viewers in the first episode or the second episode at the latest to keep them watching.
