True story about a scientist who developed and filmed an astonishing 18 month long friendship with an octopus in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of South Africa. Fantastic underwater photography and an enthralling storyline. I was almost in tears at the end.
I’ll be watching this. Thanks

Watched that recently too Hip, very, very good and nearly got me going too. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Watched ‘da 5 bloods’ on Netflix last night, Spike Lee’s latest film. Again would definitely recommend it, educational as well as entertaining.

Anyone else enjoying His Dark Materials? Having enjoyed the books, I was wary of any attempt to put them on film.
However, I've been mightily impressed.

I recommend The Hijacker Who Vanished (BBC). An entertaining Storyville film which goes some way towards finding a convincing account of who DB Cooper might have been.

Yes I really enjoyed Queen's Gambit. I remember reading the book a few years ago. Walter Tevis didn't write much but he did write some great stories (The Hustler, The Color of Money and The Man Who Fell to Earth).

Finished all 3 series of Borgen now. One of those where they establish the main characters and then every episode has a new story line - which were all entertaining. Well written, covers a wide range of topics (war, immigration, mental health, breast cancer, environment etc) and a really good watch. 
Initially I struggled a bit to get past the use of broad English dialects in the context of the Danish Parliament (Away aye Birgitte hen...)  but it's a political/media thriller cum soap that gets better and better and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes Designated Survivor and House of Cards.

I really struggled with the very heavy British accents used for the dubbing and I did find it a bit dated in places even though the first series was only made 10 years ago.

Enjoyable though?

Just watched the Hugh Grant/Nicole Kidman thing "The Undoing" on my mate Debbie's recommendation - hard to do as Deb's a proper girl into girl stuff and much as I love her let's say our tastes differ, but it was enjoyable enough. Bit of a New York whodunnit/courtroom drama with a touch of family psychology thrown in for good measure. I was considering the kid smashed her head in with a hammer for a while...

I watched it too, Lusty. Thought Nicole Kidman was a bit on the posy side but Huge Rant was a really convincing seedy geezer.

Final of Countdown today. Two brilliant finalists but Lady Bobsworth was on fire solving the conundrum and two of the numbers rounds that the finalists didn't get. I was too busy taking the knee whilst setting the wood burner.

A couple of recommendations:

Umbrella Academy (Netflix) - a rather different take on super heroes

Crossing Swords (ITV) - amusing animation

The Bobsworths are big fans of Ben Elton's writing.  Pity he couldn't find room for the Marquis of Burberry in the script but it was quite funny without it.

Finished a few recently. The Serpent was OK when it got going - mass murderer drama based on a true story. Spiral is better although it's in French with subtitles which won't please some, but whilst it's another police drama it's amped up quite a bit and definitely not for the squeamish. Very well written and acted.

The Serpent really made me feel chills because (albeit with some dramatic licence) actually happened more or less as shown. What I especially couldn't get over was Jenna Coleman's performance. For me it was outstanding especially given her prior 'wholesome' roles in Dr Who and where she played Queen Victoria. I haven't watched Spiral as yet but I'll check it out lusty. I like a good drama that makes you think and frankly the Europeans are often better at that sort of thing than the British and Americans.

I notice The X-Files are all free to watch on Prime Video, so I might give them a go. Not seen an episode for many years now.

I've used the current lockdown productively and watched loads of TV.

Those of you on the chatbox will remember I threw my iPad out of my window after another crushing defeat, so I was forced to buy a new one. With it came a 1 year subscription to Apple TV.

There's not the choice of Netflix or Amazon Prime Video but what I've watched so far has been brilliant.

Top of the list is 'Tehran' an Israeli thriller similar to 'Homeland' but so much better. Rather than the usual USA/UK v Russia, this is Israel v Iran and it looks and feels great. I can't recommend this enough.

Next is 'Defending Jacob' with Captain America's Chris Evans. A twisty courtroom drama with Evans proving he can act. Top stuff.

And I've just finished watching the first season of 'For All Mankind' which is a twist on the race to the moon, where Russia beats the US to land a man (and woman) on the moon. Excellent 60s/70s feel and look. I watched all 10 hours in two days. And Joel Kinnaman is ace in it.

You can get a 1 month Apple TV free trial so you can watch all this without paying a penny.

I thought Tehran was great too, Nat.

Recently watched The Night Of on HBO which is the best show I’ve seen in a long while. Also just about to finish up the second season of El Jardin de Bronce which I’ve really enjoyed too although not as good as the first season.

You bloody tease, recommending a programme I can't watch in the UK.

I asked Alexa to play 'El Jardin de Bronce' and she took me to the website for a cleaning firm in Barcelona.

Finished it last night and it turned out to be a really good watch. It’s called Inhuman Resources and it’s an excellent story about an angry unemployed guy (Cantona) who loses the plot and sets out to get revenge on a corrupt aerospace company in spectacular style.
Well worth watching but I won’t spoil it for you by giving away the twists.

Are you a heterosexual male with working eyesight? Then yes you do fancy Gillian Anderson. In fact my lovely wife says that Ms Anderson was and is so hot it makes her consider 'batting for the other team'. Hannah was much more direct and said "I want to taste every inch of that." I had the good sense not to comment on this because Wendy was nearby and I like my head where it is thank you. Very Happy

See post 104 TROY.
You'll probably like the Cantona thing and Deadwind and I'm watching The Spy starring Ali G - who does a decent job of actual acting to my amazement. It's about Mossad's operations in Syria in the 60's - pretty good so far. Netflix.
