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.
"Ah go on go on go on"

The Killing I excellent. If you're enjoying that, would hugely recommend Danish/Swedish (co-production) The Bridge (Broen).


My recommended list for everyone who hasn't seen them (not included those already covered here of which there are a few top shouts).

The Bridge (as above, Danish/Swedish crime drama)

Trapped (Icelandic crime drama)

Narcos - Netflix. Rise of Pablo Escobar/drug cartels.

Narcos Mexico (as above but moved on to Mexico for later series).

Dark - Netflix. German, crime/sci-fi/bit of everything drama. Very good!

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

Ahh, didn't know he was a Fulham Supporter,.might give that a go..

I have been getting into chess, for the first time in my life, some good apps to.play with (Magnus Carlson and Chess.com and YouTube videos about to learn from)

This Country is brilliant. To clarify Charlie Cooper the actor who plays Kurt is a massive Fulham supporter. The characters support Swindon
This Country is superb in a quiet an subtle way.
The Vicar is an underrated foil for other characters.

I'd recommend The Boys on Amazon. Based on comics. It's Avengers if all the super heroes were treated as marketing commodities and were all pretty much corrupt douches in varying degrees.

I wouldn't recommend 'You' on Netflix....nearly finished it and annoyed we started it.

I've heard Altered Carbon is very good. That will be my next watch.

If you fancy Horror, House on Haunted Hill was good.
