My garden has never looked so tidy in March and having had some bushes pruned last month I have big gaps to fill in a new layout.. The problem is that I have no intention of going to the garden centre!
Too many chances are being taken and it will only prolong the agony for us all.

Have you watched This Country on BBC3? With my wife we found this hilarious.  And the main male character is Fulham supporter!

Best of them all, Game of Thrones! Gutted that after moving I had to have a Sky Q box and lost the whole lot from my Sky HD box, no way to transfer them.

We've been re-watching the complete series of Better Call Saul, and Breaking Bad, with the intent to watch the movie El Camino (Jessie).

Already gone through OFAH, Sweeney & Darling Buds. Planning on breaking out Kavanagh QC at some stage as well as committing Rumpole to a binge watch, if the panic persists well into April.

El  Camino is excellent. If you have Netflix two films I'd happily watch again are "Inside Man" and "Man on a ledge" both crime films with excellent twists along the way.
"The Two Popes" which sounds like a Morecambe and Wise sketch is brilliantly acted by Johnathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins and "At Eternity's Gate" a film about the last few months of Vincent Van Gogh's life. Again brilliantly acted this time by Willem Dafoe.

Great show. I love the two part Jack the Ripper episodes in the early seasons. Tailed off towards season 3 if I remember correctly. Picked up in the last season but ended disappointingly in my opinion!

Been catching up with latest season of Better Call Saul. Really starting to pick up isn’t it! Love the BB characters all re-appearing and the scenes with Mike etc.

I must admit the girlfriend of Saul really irritates me and can’t wait for her to meet a grisly end! She surely can’t hang around long as she was never in BB..

Its great to see the varied TV shows we each watch, with a bunch of overlaps as well. Getting some good tips on 'new' series and movies to look for on the various platforms.

Ahh, Rhea Seehorn, I know what you mean,, though she just adds well to the confusion that is Saul Goodman (sorry, Gene Takavic). It does get a tad confusing when watching series made after the end of the series that was chronologically later though.

Just finished watching El Camino, and it does a lot of credit to the original series. Amazing how they reconstructed the sets and even clothing, from the end of BB that was 6 years earlier!

Better Call Saul is absolutely brilliant, one of my favourites.

I really like Rhea Seehorn as Saul's girlfriend, though- a really nuanced performance, she seems like a real, conflicted person. Saul's lucky to have her, but for how much longer?

Everything about this series is great imo.

The Wire and The Sopranos, both classics, the best -  you must see them if you haven't already, though you probably have.
Mad Men's also up there.

Homecoming on Chanel4, just on its last series, has been pretty good all through, forget the critics,  really has its finger on modern, political times I think.

The Americans, on ITV , dvd and Amazon Prime - now  that's definitely one of my favourites, an underrated, in this country anyway, must see. Loved this.

And Breaking Bad, of course, the  forerunner to Better Call Saul, which is gradually, intriguingly, moving towards it, with minor  characters being introduced, though Saul himself was  a fairly minor character I suppose. How far will they go? A treat in store if you haven't seen it.

The wife and I watched the first 4 episodes last night,there's (20 in all) of the brilliant Danish series "The Killing".
Superb acting by them all,shall watch a few more episodes today,even though we've seen it all before its still great to watch.
After we've watched it through,it might be either "Taboo" with Tom Hardy, or Father Ted Box set.
