Ever wondered why many people act as they do on social media?

This is worth a watch if you do...!

Just watched Dopesick on Disney plus and it was excellent. Its all about the drug Oxycontin and how it caused massive addiction all over America and the very dodgy drug company that made and marketed the drug.

Thank God the drug is heavily regulated over here, it was being issued to everyone in America for even dental pain or headaches!

Watched "The Girl from Oslo" on Netflix. Fundamentally a good story (diplomats daughter goes to Israel to find her biological father - a government minister - gets kidnapped by ISIS etc) but ruined by dodgy dubbing and a hysterical diplomat mother (feel her pain) who in her desperation does and says a string of daft things that jeopardise everything and everyone giving the impression she has no clue about diplomacy or negotiation. On balance - disappointingly average.

Quite enjoyed "The Tourist" on BBC i-player. A six part drama set in Australia that had echoes of other work but was nonetheless well written and well acted by a diverse cast who have variously appeared in Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in the West,  Line of Duty, the lead guy in Fifty Shades of Grey, Prisoner Cell Block H, Fantastic Beasts, The Piano and Home and Away!

Suspenseful thriller, good story line with a couple of twists at the end.
Not to be confused with the Johnny Depp film of the same name.

I absolutely loved the Tourist for the 1st 4 and a half episodes then both myself and Mrs. Priest got totally lost with the plot and couldn't figure out quite what was going on.
It has to be said we'd had a few sherberts on the evening in question. I'll watch the last 2 episodes again.

That'll be when he accidentally took the acid trip in the Greek gangsters water bottle and his memories started to flood back?  He finally realised who he was and what he'd done.
Agree that episode was a tricky watch but it set things up perfectly for the final episode.

Watched "The Stranger" on Netflix - another Harlan Coben thriller in 8 episodes - and it was excellent.

That it was filmed around Bolton, Bury, Manchester and Stockport adds the "spot the location" element to a twisty plot of middle class blackmail, murder and intrigue.

The school central to the story is Bolton School but the lead characters houses are in Didsbury amongst multiple locations.

Well worth watching - certainly got me and the missus hooked - as do many of the Harlan Coben series currently available.

Over the past couple of months I rewatched the Sopranos from start to finish and loved it, even more this time around. If anyone here hasn't watched it please do - it's incredible!

I also just finished the latest season of Ozark (more go come apparently) which I also think is fantastic.

Any suggestions welcome as I patiently await the new Top Boy season on March 18th.

Watched Blazing Saddles again yesterday. Not seen it in a while.

I'd forgotten how funny it was.

Mastermind final was good last night. It looked like it was going to be a close run thing until Golden Oldie, Alice Walker, came storming through at the end leaving the field lengths behind.

It was also the second instalment of the House of Maxwell. Well worth watching.

Maxwell was good - who knew he was in the KGB and chose that surname from a jar of instant coffee? Some definite "where were you when" moments.

All 3 episodes are on iPlayer BTW but I'm saving the Ghislaine bit for later.

Slight withdrawal symptoms today as a riveting UC series came to an end last week concluding with a desperately close fought finish, so I'm going to have to make do with my recording of the Celebrity Mastermind final tonight. Wonder who will win it? Smile

Enjoyed Taboo which has resurfaced on Netflix BTW. Tom Hardie was good in the lead but Jonathan Pryce makes a deliciously evil bad guy.

Anyone remember a 90's sitcom called DAD, starring George Cole and Kevin McNally?

I remembered it vaguely, but can't seem to get it on DVD. Most episodes are on youtube though, and, although not fall down funny, it goes down well with a cup of tea and a Tunnock's Tea Cake.

Tearing myself away from 'Big Girls Blousegate' on Nuts, I watched the first three episodes of 'Once Upon a Time in Londongrad' last night. Absolutely riveting stuff!

No. Not Big Girls Blousegate, Silly. Rolling Eyes

https://www.sky.com/watch/title/series/eb843f83-a479-418d-9675-34280cfc5650/once-upon-a-time-in-londongrad-eb843f83-a479-418d-9675-34280cfc5650/episodes/season-1/episode-1

Still no sign of BWFC accounts btw. It seems the ST hasn't noticed or are they banned from asking the question?

As riveting as Big Girls Blousegate is, I'm looking forward to seeing the Londongrad drama, not least because I recently read "Putin's People" which tells the whole story of his rise and the fallout - including exploiting the low standards the UK has in checking out Russian money laundering, companies and owners. I was gobsmacked that so many Russian companies launched in London until I read that we're the only major country that puts the risk and onus for checking on potential investors and that as a country  we do zero checks of any substance.
Has anyone seen the other recent Putin one about his obsession with the Russkyy Mir and Ukraine in particular? Looking forward to that too.

Isn't it interesting that the Beeno, and none of the UK media, never noticed that Ken Anderson didn't get the £525K that they all claimed proved he was ripping off BWFC.

Still less did they notice that ownership of Inner Circle Sports and Media (the company that was supposed to get the money but never did) was transferred to Vasily Anisimov, a Russian oligarch and close associate of Vladimir Putin.

But why?

Too rich for my blood. I've just watched Stan and Ollie in BLOTTO. Half an hour well spent.
