Don’t bother, this is defo not a family watch.family are looking for a boxset we can all watch. Might give this a go. We were going for The 100 or something.
Don’t bother, this is defo not a family watch.
I have decided to give up a third of the way through episode 3.
This in truth is total pish but somehow folk convince themselves it’s good simply because it is on Netflix.
If this was on BBC we would be questioning why our license fees are being spent on such pish.
The content could easily be condensed into a 1 hour crime documentary. So it amounts to drawn out sensationalist pish.
Prison break is probably the best show I’ve watched along with 24. Just finished it and can’t believe it took me so long to watch!I probably wont go for House of Cards next. As good as it may be I am guessing that Homeland (done 4 series of that last year), House of Cards and Designated Survivor are probably all a bit samey.
So I think its going to be Prison Break next which I am told is also very good.
No, I know nothing about any American sport and intend to keep it that wayI’d assume you must know Chicago Bulls are an NBA team.
Prison Break is fantastic. I might actually rewatch it now that I can binge it instead of watch once a week like when it originally came out!
It's made by ESPN as part of their 30 for 30 series I'd highly recommend it for any sports fans even if you aren't a particular fan of the sport.
Very similar to the recommendation I got for it
‘Anyone who knows me knows that I think Muhammad Ali was the Greatest athlete/sportsman of all Time. But watching this series and seriously seeing Michael Jordan in action for the first time... my god the things he did on a basketball court were insane. Anybody with an interest in any sort of sporting greatness has to watch this show.‘
I will definitely start it after having that recommendation backed up.
Just done a googly on it, not convinced it would be one for us wrong side of 50 people. I left violence behind when I left Maryhill (many years ago)I’ve completed a tv series called Oz on boxset. It was the first ever tv series made by HBO and was made just before the sopranos- it actually has some of the cast of the sopranos and similar writers.
The sopranos is one of my favourite tv series of all time but Oz completely trumps it, it’s so good. The dynamics that go on between some of the characters in the series are incredible. I struggled first few episodes particularly with how violent it could be -but then I got really into the series it’s so addictive and after seeing all 6 series it’s probably the best tv series I have ever seen - a lot of brilliant actors in it
NBA was on TV in the UK during the Jordan, Pippin, Rodman era, quite late at night. I remember watching it after coming back from the pub. They were a great sports team. I'll defo watch this, make me feel young (ish) again Mind you I would have said it was early 90's. Mind is going.
