    Finished The Shield last night, pretty dark and heavy at times. Up next is Sneaky Pete S2 and then probably one of Black Sails, Carnivale or Rome.

    Rome! @Fab

    You really can’t go wrong either way tbf, two of my favorite shows. May give black sails another watch since it’s been awhile.

    It took me to about where you are at to realize that the show was loosely based on true stories haha... no idea why it took me that long to realize it. But yeah I feel like they could have kept going with it, but they handled the show really really well overall.

    Yeah I’m really enjoying it. Feel like they rushed some stuff in season 3 and so far in season 4, but still very good overall.
    That Blackbeard death scene was absolutely brutal. Love how they filmed it as well, really captured the emotions of watching a man go through something like that.

    I wanted to comment on that scene but didn’t want to spoil anything. But your description of it is exactly how I was going to describe it haha.

    Has anyone watched save me?

    Kept seeing it advertised on Sky so downloaded the box set. It’s ok ish. The main actor did a pretty good job and it’s watchable!

    Has anyone watched Ripper Street?

    Made by BBC and I found Sherlock brilliant. Always been intrigued by the Whitechapel murder so this is right up my alley.

    Yeah - Ripper Street is a good watch. Do like Matthew Macfadyen - fantastic in Pillars of the Earth!

    Cheers, have added it to the list. Started the Frankenstein Chronicles and has a similar feel, and very short in comparison to Ripper Street (only 12 episodes!). Not to mention Sean Bean is the protagonist.

    Guessing this is the best place to ask; best streaming device? Should really get a new TV but gf hates big TVs so no point and so stuck with a non smart TV..

    Needs if possible NF, iplayer, ITV, 4oD, 5oD etc. Kodi too perhaps? Can you get devices with those main ones as apps and add kodi on?

    Mate put me onto Santa Clarita Diet. Saw it was Timothy Olyphant - great! ... but then realised it was a comedy. Hmmm .... at least it's not studio/canned laughter crap.

    ... 5 episodes in and I've had some quite a few "spitting out my food / snorting / laughter" moments.

    Genuinely not what I had in mind and is a decent side watch with a good cast.

    Done 1 season of Rome so far. It’s good but nothing really special imo. Wish they didn’t skip over all the battle scenes lmao

    Just finished season 1 of La casa de papel and wow, this is amazing. Ambitious series but pulls it off flawlessly. Currently Sea of Thieving the second season seeing as it isn't on Netflix (yet). If you're not shy of watching foreign productions with subtitles (or what is likely to be a mediocre dub), this is honestly a must watch.

    Edit: okay these subs are terrible will just wait for season 2 to hit netflix in 2 weeks

    I hate off screen fights/battles. Can ruin a show/movie.
