Just started The Plot Against America last night - based on the Phillip Roth novel. Also looking v well made.

Looking forward to this, the novel is very good.

It's a Roth I've not read: is this one also just constant banging on about death and him getting laid?
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.

No. It's an outlier, an alternative history about Lindbergh leading a fascist takeover of the USA.
Obviously totally fictitious, imagine a fuckwit celebrity fascist narcissist getting into the White House ...

NB I May Destroy You finished this week.

You really should get into it. Properly challenging, morally ambiguous TV drama; amazing writing.

Hmm, . I liked it (characters are flawed and not totally likeable), the ambiguous ending was a good bit of writing, but I'm not convinved it's this year's "best thing evs" as it has been touted. 7.8/10

I seem to find a lot of TV comedy from any length of time back a bit hard to watch and dated, but we’ve been dipping in and out of Spaced lately and I’m pleased to note that it remains stupid funny. Just watched the Tyres clubbing one and it’s gloriously, perfectly timed genius.

Dancing at pelican crossings always chimes with something from youth, tbh.

The state of the Union. Chris O'Dowd, and Rosamund Pike

Bittersweet comedy vignettes, about a couple meeting in the pub for a chat about their situation before popping over the road to their counsellor for their weekly marriage guidance session

Very sharply observed, acted and written

As I like the pair of them, I'm kind of obligated to give this a try. Channel?

For those of you remember a fair way back, the Beeb have put a classic 1992 series called Sign of the Times about different couples’ interior design, and produced in association with Martin Parr, on iPlayer. It was groundbreaking at the time, long before any sort of makeover TV. It’s fucking hilarious / painful to watch now.

Thanks for this recommendation.
:salute:
Superb television.
Mind you, looking at the people responsible, it's no surprise.

Finished Once Upon A Time In Iraq. Fucking hell, that’s one of the most harrowing and deeply unsettling things I’ve ever seen.

We’re watching Derniere Vague / Last Wave.

It’s one of those where you start to get into it, then realise it’s a bit shit actually, then think you might as well keep going to the end. Ah well, only two to go now.
