    What do you recommend?

    OK . I have young kids so I've had little time to watch, apart from sport, any decent TV.

    Recently, I've been clued up on torrents (many thanks to everyone)

    My Kids cartoons are downloaded.

    The porn spike was interesting, but now I'm bored.

    All this stuff is a decade old but, I like stuff like ...

    (in no particular order)

    Wire in the Blood
    Spooks
    Sherlock
    Waking the Dead
    Silent Witness ... before they got into police analysis
    Vikings
    Swedish Detective - The Eagle
    Dr Who
    Star Trek, most of it, but not Deep Space 9


    Can't stand stuff like ...

    The Race
    Anything Trumpish
    Any cooking program ... unless it has Nigella Lawson ...
    Survivor
    Anything that is bla bla


    Though, I do admit to liking Charmed ... maybe it's an Alyssa Milano desire.


    So ... what to recommend.

    I won't diss any suggestion as I have an open mind. Happy to try new things, just looking for options.

    Thanks in Advance

    Always thought that was dreary serious stuff like 'Suits'. Just checked it out on Wiki and it's written by the same guy that wrote 'Ally McBeal' which I've just started watching the first season of.

    I've put 'Boston Legal' on my 'to-watch' list before re-watching 'Moonlighting'.

    It was very popular but I'm afraid the novelty factor wore off pretty quickly and for me it became a drudge.

    However, on the subject of Aussie humour, anything involving John Clarke and Bryan Dawe will be excellent in my opinion. For example;

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Games_(Australian_TV_series)

    http://www.xxx.xxx.xx/news/2016-12-0...y-well/8084186






    Also anything involving Roy and HG;

    This comedy series " Newzoids" and as a Leave voter I think they do a very good impersonation of Nigel Farage. Brilliantly funny

    OK, have been through the suggestions and tried to pick a cross-section from each members selection. I like to have an open mind.

    Umm ... have seen the said '2 Girls 1 Cup' ... once was enough ... but thanks for the suggestion!
    Oh, is that the correct spelling of 'Jherico' ... I couldn't find it.

    Status ... have downloaded the Movie and read the reviews. If the series lives upto the hype ... should be good.

    Looked for Newzoids as I used to live in London and like your humour.
    However, unfortunately Newzoids only has 1 or 2 seeders and will take forever to download.

    Yep, hear what you are saying but, after working a full day and having to contend with 2 sprightly 3 year olds ... a bit of chilling is OK by me.


    Once I watched some of the above I'll give my thoughts.

    Thanks for all of the suggestions ... I've followed up

    Dexter is one of those series you wish would come back again.

    Ok ... thanks for all the suggestions ... I'm slowly working my way through them.

    Currently watching 'The Vikings' series.

    I only have series 1.

    I've tried, but unsuccessfully, can someone give me the direct links for the entire Series 2 and 3. Pirate Bay is usually where I've downloaded from.

    720 is fine, 1080 also good.

    Any higher quality is lost on my media playing devices.

    Please excuse my lack of searching skills ... I'm crap.


    Many Thanks in Advance.

    Type s02 for season 2.

    s03 for season 3.


    So you would type 'Vikings s02'.

    Mate, just did that and it's sweet ... thanks a heap.

    Don't know what I was doing wrong before ... maybe a brain fade.

    I did look at that thread, but with over 11,000 ... what's the chance of stumbling across what I want?

    Undeterred, I did search the thread with the search word of Vikings ... came back with a digestible 3 pages of suggestion.

    But, all the posts with links on them referred to individual episodes, but none, well, none that I read referred to a whole series.

    Thanks for the heads up though.

    Green owed.
