    I've just started watching a few episodes of the below new series.
    They're set in one of the wettest towns in the US and mainly have fuckall to do



    A good watch first thing in the Morning to put you in a good mood for the day.

    That's mental.

    Better buy him a lock for his door. That could get awkward

    Without having even watched a single minute of it I'm going to decry it as an obvious 'Reno 911' rip-off...

    Only set in Tacoma. And with firemen not cops.

    After bludgeoning his female victims to death, and sometimes spending the night with their dead bodies, he would often remove their heads with a hacksaw and take them back to his apartment to keep as mementos.

    With the severed heads on display at home, Bundy would wash their hair, apply make-up to them, and engage in sexual acts with them.
    Movie is pretty good. Zak Efron plays Bundy really well. Having recently watched the 4-part docu about Bundy ("Conversations with a Killer.."), Efron has Bundy off to a tee.

    Disappointing that the movie chooses to show such an air-brushed version of the story, though. Bundy's crimes were horrific, yet the movie chooses to show mainly his relations with his girlfriend(s), and glosses over his horrendous crimes and sick duplicity. I'd recommend the documentary anyday, tbh.

    I'm talking about The Blacklist.

    I hope I was never rude to you. I had no idea, until watching the first 5 minutes of this, that you had been dropped on your head - from a very great height - as a child.

    I think I did 2 seasons, by the end of it, I was on my knees crying

    I usually pride myself in finish a season even if I don't like a series, maybe 2 if I want to give the series the benefits of doubt

    with a few notable exceptions where I couldn't finish after 4 episodes: Shameless (US and UK), the Office (US and UK), NCIS New Orleans (horrible southern accent by one lead character that would just want you to scream)

    that episode 3 of Games of Throne was brutal,

    a lot of good characters went down,

    the scenes was so dark, if was hard to see what was happening in the battle scenes, and who died or survived

    going for Episode 4, things are moving very fast in that season

    Looks like one episode at a time.

    How annoyingly old school.

    Will wait for it all to finish before binge'ing it.

    Chernobyl reviewed by some clueless bint who is clearly the sort who would sit next to you watching a movie and ask "Who's he?" or "Why did they do that" every few minutes.

    No wonder even the Grauniad closed the comments!

    I've added a new settings-profile on my TV which is only use for the latest season of GoT ...as it is so dark.
