We have just finished watching Fleabag, absolutely captivating and brilliantly constructed. I am now off to find everything else written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

I have just been watching Summer of Rockets, which I am enjoying for the typically Poliakoff measured pace and beautiful shooting but hating for just about everything else.

We haven’t got through 3 yet! I’m up to episode 10 which was great
😔 They've announced that season 4 will be the last.

It seems it's an artistic decision. They said they don't want to go the way of Lost.

Good, Im impressed its lasted this long, Id rather they go out on a strong ending.

Ive been watching good omens, Its been fun so far and the casting is perfect. Although it feels like a lot of setup so far.

Killing Eve Series 2. I'm up to episode 5.
Absolutely fabulous again, everybody in it is superb but Jodie Comer is totally mesmerising.

We occupy that niche of people who watch it on iplayer not live, but only watch it after the episode in question has been broadcast.

I don't know what episode it's up to on the tele at the moment, I'm iplayering it. I promise you'll see no spoilers from me whatever the current live situation is.

Wow, is it that far back? I'll just say if you liked the first series I see no reason not to think as much of this one.

Being in the blessed position of only having watched S2E1 so far, we are a bit bemused by all the people who are saying it's not a patch on the first series - E1 seemed pretty as much good as most of S1 to us.

"Mum"
Not sure when the first series, or the second or third for that matter, came out and I can't be bothered to look. But it totally passed me by when it did, I've just binged the lot on iplayer and thoroughly enjoyed it. Some dodgy bits as you'd expect but generally I thought it was very well written and funny and, to me at least, tackled the issue of loss and finding new love later in life very sensitively. Lesly Manville and Peter Mullan were both excellent. Yeah, I thought it was very good #thumbsup

I saw about 20 minutes of Good Omens on a train the other day. The woman sat next to me was watching it on her tablet but, as she was using headphones, I only got the visuals and no sound. I couldn't decide whether it was brilliant or rubbish.
