WHAT YOU WATCHIN? The TV Thread!

Not watched Doctor Who for years, doubt I'll be starting again now. Found those Angels as scary as the Daleks - that'll let you know how long since I've watched it. I think the only reason I would watch again now is if Damien were in.
At the moment I'm recording things to binge watch later - Killing Eve, Vanity Fair, Black Earth Rising. I'm watching mainly documentaries live - there's loads on Sky at the moment about the Roman Republic, which I find fascinating. My children raved about Maniac on Netflix, now I'm a fan, too.

Oh yeah.  We also watch the first episode of Maniac.  Haven't had time to get back to it yet.  It looked promising. 

We also have not had time to watch the new Doctor Who episode but should get to it on Friday.

Lol! ME TOO Rosie! Glad you admitted the same, I even scrolled back the iplayer in case I missed Damien's face at the end! He HAS to appear on Dr Who some day! But I would far prefer he was a big character, than a guest star on 1 episode...

Ellie the only one on your list I haven't caught yet is 'Black Earth Rising' but I plan to catch up on that, it has the wonderful Michaela Coel in it, so it is a must. I need to be in the right frame of mind for serious drama, but won't avoid a seriously good drama for that reason.

RJ, Maniac is worth it - very original, the slightly future dystopia is so easy to imagine.

When I saw the premise I thought of Damien's BBC r3 play 'The Effect' - perhaps because all roads actor related lead to Mr M in my head, but there is a theme overlap-ish.

I'm obsessed with Game of Thrones (I'm doing the theme in my head now). I think I've binge watched it about 8 times now. I'm gonna be so sad when it ends next year.

So surprising GoT is coming to an end considering its massive popularity!I've dipped in and out of GoT over the years, but always enjoy it.

I've just started watching Westworld season 2, treated myself to the series on Amazon Prime, and already binge-ing. Writing that is so textured it stretches your brain and keeps you utterly captivated, especially as  this is my genre of choice. Also, it has strong female characters. Delighted to read Aaron Paul will be joining the third season.

I'm digging Jody Whitaker as the Doctor! She's fantastic and the stories have been much better so far.  I have high hopes for this season. 

Westworld is so good but such a mindf**ck. That's a good description Domino. You have to pay very close attention to figure out what is going on. 

Do any of you watch Into the Badlands?  We are loving that show too. It's so beautiful. 

And Daredevil just returned.  I'm really upset with Matt right now.

Into the Badlands - fantastic, I have recommended it to everyone i know. I love The Widow, she is brilliant. The fight scenes are almost ballet, they are so good.
The other thing I'm loving at the moment is A Discovery of Witches - best supernatural drama since Being Human. I've actually bought the series in kindle!

The jury's out for me concerning Jodie Whitaker as the new Doctor, I think I need to see a few more episodes before I make up my mind.
There is one thing that annoys me when a new doctor meets new people, the fact that they never believe in aliens. Surely the remember when the earth was move to a different orbit or when cybermen and darleks were all over the world. When people of A+ blood were threatening to jump off high places. Were they all asleep during those times.

Watching 3% on Netflix, love it. I had to watch series one again as it's been so long, now midway through series 2. Delighted there's to be a third series.
It's in Brazilian but you can change the setting (both audio and subtitles) to English. It's very well dubbed, you don't really notice it.

I'm not enjoying Jodie whitaker's Dr Who, finding her very annoying. Don't think I will watch anymore.
I'm sure there are plenty that are enjoying her and for them I am happy.

I'm sorry you aren't enjoying Jodie's Dr, Dingleannie.  That's how I felt about Matt Smith.  I kept watching but never liked him.  He was too manic. Her Dr Who has dialed the manic back just enough that it doesn't bother me, and I think she's adorable. 

Mostly, I think the writing is better this year so far. I'm laughing more. That's the important part to me.  I also like the variety of companions. The last few seasons were ruined for me by little miss I'm-the-smartest-most-special-companion-ever Clara. 

I wish they would quit separating her from the Tardis tough.  It really stresses me out. I know it's meant to do that but I don't like it. 

My husband is enjoying it again too, so we will keep watching.  We were going to give up on it this year if they didn't turn it around.

Oh Jane, you don't know how much I hated as you call her I'm-the-smartest-most-special-companion-ever Clara. I was okay with Matt Smith until Clara came along.

The thing is with me I loved David Tennant so much that no one was ever going to compare.

I'm happy you are enjoying Jodie.

No one will ever beat David Tennant for me either, but I still liked Capaldi.

I really wanted to like Peter Capaldi, I was pleased when he was first announced. But Clara, well she just annoyed me so much. Also I hated the preachy nature of his tenure.

Me, loved Killing Eve, delighted there's to be a second series. I'm not watching much tv at the moment, recording The Little Drummer Girl to binge watch, though.
I was really annoyed at the one Dr Who I've watched in the last few years - my granddaughter was over and she's a fan. It was one with Clara - The Forever Girl, or something like that. It showed her pointing Dr Who towards a Tardis that was like a police box, when everyone knows the Tardis was designed to change everywhere it went to blend in. The Doctor's Tardis went wrong when he escaped from Earth in the very first series because of the very first companions not being figured in his calculations. As I remember it, anyway.

Wow, what a trip 'Bandersnatch' is! Head spinner! Part of me does not prefer the interactive element over the immersion of a continuous 'story', but part of me loves the innovation, journey, total cleverness and head f***ery of it all. (sorry - no other word) and of course as always with Black Mirror the message is pretty dark and profound. All round excellent - and a completely rare and unique dramatic experience not to be missed!

Finally watched 'Safe' on Netflix - brilliant. Completely binged it because it's so utterly suspenseful and gripping. Only afterwards did I discover it is written by Danny Brocklehurst, which made me even more excited for 'Brassic'.

On a lighter entertainment note, dating shows are really not my thing but love love loving 'Flirty Dancing' - it's utterly joyful! Watched the first two episodes with a ridiculous grin on my face throughout dancing

I thought 'Bandersnatch' was kind of meh.  I prefer the story to be told to me and wasn't a fan of the the choose your own story idea even as a child. 

'Safe' was fantastic.  I also binged it. I didn't suspect the ending until just a few minutes before the big reveal.
