Star Trek Discovery.
Not a huge Star Trek fan but this is actually pretty decent. Three episodes in might be a bit early to judge, but a very promising start.
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.

A while ago a few on here recommended Gomorrah. Just finished season 1 and it's brilliant.

If you've never been, take the wife to Napoli but don't tell her why (sell her on romance, Pompeii and Capri). And see for yourself these kids and the whole scene, the show will make them stand out a mile.

I love that city, proper wild west anarchy, and dripping with history.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

I had s fleeting day trip there a few years ago whilst on a Med cruise and didn't quite get a proper feel. But coming from where I do North Korea looks like Disney Land.

yeah. i watched a few of them, enjoyed them and then forgot about it, need to get back on to it. :thumbl:

inbetween times watched a bit of mad men and house of cards, both of which get tedious quickly.

I think it's because of the subtitles, watching it close like that sucks you in untill you are chewing on the grit. It's fuckin brilliant.

I always watch stuff I'm interested in with subtitles. Mostly because I'm deaf as a post but also because it definitely aids with absorbing the intricacies

Natural to compare it to 'Peep Show', I suppose, but I've been trying hard not to. Liked it without loving it until last night's episode, the second half of which was incredibly funny. [The car park scene especially.]


Yeah, I've similarly been on the edge with it. Find it difficult to come to terms with the fact the characters are not a million miles from Peep Show. Missed last night.

Watched the first three episodes.
What utter shite.
Don't even pretend to be anything other than the Peep Show characters.
Peep Show was great, one of those shows that define a moment
Mitchell and Webb both splendid. Great secondary characters really made it much more than a two- hander.

There are no secondary characters in this. Mitchell and Webb have flogged their characters to death and phone in below par performances that rarely get beyond gurning. Webb shrugs shoulders and gives a half smile, Mitchell grimaces in pain....
Crap.
Even some of the situations/gags are a straight lift from PS.
Very, very poor.

for anyone else on the grand designs tip, there's a budget redesign show on bbc i'm quite enjoying; 'the £100k house, tricks of the trade'. it's even got bbc's own kevin called piers. it's an offshoot of the £100k house where the same crew followed people who had that same sum to build a property, but this time it's people who need to revamp their houses on a budget. piers the architect comes round and suggests what's best for the budge then shows them some funky inspirational examples he knows of. sometimes they take his advice sometimes they don't.

for someone who designed his own extension last year, it scratches that mini architecture and design itch.

it's on mid afternoon, but there's plenty on the iplayer.
