    Finished watching Schitts Creek last night.
    I wasn't too sure about it to begin with, but stuck with it and it got better and better.
    It might be a bit of an acquired taste but I found it funny and well acted. I was sorry to get to the end of it.

    I thought it was great too and was not sold at the outset either when my GF suggested we watched it, glad she did

    The acting is INCREDIBLY cheesy and stilted in this latest series, they don't look believable any more, they look like actors acting the actions of stale characters. Pretty cheesy, all they need to do next is turn to the camera and wink.

    Agreed think this latest season is awful. Never been the biggest fan and don’t get the hype. I think it’s got progressively worse not better.

    Unforgotten on ITV is a show that got better and better series 4 was really good. Just nice and subtle and well acted.

    New Theroux tonight revisiting the Tiger King stuff. Going to give that a watch.

    Always liked Theroux and his style. Many of his podcasts over lockdown have been a good listen too.

    Been working my way through a few Storyville's on the iPlayer recently. All interesting and worth watching.

    They were very enjoyable. Lennie Henry one was excellent. Ruby Wax podcast was a bit odd. She was a bit weird the way she came across

    Although Wax had a self confessed troubling childhood and appears to have now confronted her mental health issues head on, she is still is a bit edgy in interviews, as in, you're never sure if the conversation might take a turn for the worse at any moment.
    (Obviously all mental health struggles are an ongoing issue)

    He has a really good chat with Riz Ahmed in a recent one. (@LutonSpurs ... iirc you're a big fan? Recommended)

    Finally got around to starting Fargo season 3 and I am very much enjoying Ewan McGregor's dual role and David Thewlis clearly relishing his part.
    A pleasure to see Michael Stuhlbarg again having just watched Your Honor (and felt a bit short-changed by it all)

    I know I sound like an old grouch but he is the worst actor I've ever seen in any film, TV or soap opera, so having to endure Double McGregor was painful to me.

    You can see him "acting" and "performing" in every scene, it is painful to my eyes.

    MS brilliant in Boardwalk Empire. Very different take on a gangster boss.

    Indeed. I smiled to see him cast as the gangster boss in Your Honor, which had a more...traditional take.

    just finished " The Stand", started off a bit weird but got better as it went on. Not normally a fan of Stephen King but it was ok.
