Phunk, what you think of Altered Carbon? I thought it started pretty well and the first half was pretty good, but it seemed to lose its way a bit second half. Got very drawn out and pretty shallow.

TJ & Choc-Ice I'm nearing the end of the 1st series of Twin Peaks as I'd never watched. It really is WEIRD. It's totally taken a different turn after the killer was revealed? I find it boring me now but sticking with the last few eps. (well there's a lot of them)

Altered Carbon is very good. His sister is amazing.

It's weird as fuck Duffy, but that's probably what's so memorable about it. 2nd season was probably too long, 1st season short and sweet.

Hi Duffy. Once the killer is revealed the quality plummets, but worth sticking with it for the last episode of season 2 which is really good.

I also enjoyed the recent return but it ups the weirdness 1000 percent and can be a difficult watch for some. Know a few people who absolutely hated it.

Great recap of Season 1 of Westworld (spoilers, obvs)

TJ I just finished season 2. the last ep is so weird... a good 20 mins of Cooper in the weird rooms/black lodge and everyone with weird voices :/

Next series downloaded ready to go.

The most recent season ups the weirdness even more. It's not really the soap opera feel the original had at times, and a lot of it is utterly bonkers tbh, but I enjoyed it.

Would the new Twin Peaks be advisable for someone who appreciated the original for what it was, but wasn't overly keen on it generally? I dipped in and out of the original one, but it never really grabbed me (maybe too young?). Just wondering if the remake might be worth a blinge?

0 |

Its more of a sequel. I didnt enjoy the first one at all.

0 |

Do you like Lynch's films? If not, and if you didn't particularly like the original Twin Peaks I'd be surprised if you liked the new one tbh takkster.

Black Lightning is good fun on Netflix, great soundtrack (well apart from the original stuff)

0 |

Enjoying it. I like a lot of the characters. Though I think superhero TV is really at a saturation point.

Any good crime dramas.out there? Really want a good TV show like that.

Don't know anyone else that stumbled on this, but I would recommend it

The night of is good. Mindhunter had its moments. Must check those others. Cheers

0 |

Oh yeah, heard a lot of TV critics raving about how good that one was.

0 |

Started Line of Duty. Pretty good so far.

0 |

Mindhunter was good-few dodgy bits and took a couple of episodes to get into it but enjoyed it.
Godless has its moments but is a bit wick too

Agreed Phunk, Quarry's a great show! Also check Snowfall, about the start of the crack epidemic in 80s LA.
