‘Bloodlands’, mini-series on BBC iPlayer. Current-day setting, N Ireland police and ex-IRA meet ‘Line of Duty’. Excellent IMO although for some reason it doesn’t really rate highly on IMDB.

Great show, but kind of dark.  It's difficult to say anything about the plot without getting into spoiler territory, but it keeps you guessing, and the ending had more to do with keeping the option open for a second season than wrapping up storylines and closing loose ends.  Did I say it was dark?

Halston - Netflix.True story light drama. Six episodes. Ewan McGregor as one of the first household name designers. Sex and drugs as you might expect. Entertaining in a made for tv kind of way. Good pace uneven in places tho. It was well worth going to the last episode. It seems like an odd choice in 2020 having a straight actor as a leading gay man. I guess not everything can be as good as Star Trek ; )

Halston - a documentary. I watched it after the series above and really enjoyed it. More design feel than the series. The doc is a slow starter before it gets going. (Neon?/Prime?)

Too Close. A UK drama. Solid 7/10 , I just love UK dramas.

 

A forensic psychiatrist has to assess a woman accused of a heinous crime, who claims she can't remember a thing.

Sweet Tooth [Netflix]. based on a comic . Ten years ago "The Great Crumble" wreaked havoc on the world and led to the mysterious emergence of hybrid babies born part human, part animal. Unsure if hybrids are the cause or result of the virus, many humans fear and hunt them. After a decade of living safely in his secluded forest home, a sheltered hybrid deer-boy named Gus  unexpectedly befriends a wandering loner . Together they set out on an extraordinary adventure across what is left of America in search of answers—about Gus' origins, Jepperd's past, and the true meaning of home.

 

Filmed in NZ and it is a bit off putting that you know that forest location of his home is the north island pine forests and then he walks out of his home and he is in the South island, i still give it 8/10, Just something different.

 

 





Common sense is not as common as you think.

The Pact.

 

A BBC murder drama. 

 

A unexplained death - and five friends bound together by a fragile pact of silence. What really happened that night in the woods?

 

Watched at home from downloaded source.

 

9/10 , Bloody loved it. Awesome twist at the end that will make you go W.T.F.

I've only seen the first two episodes so far but I'm enjoying it and will continue.

 

I noticed at the end of episode 2, where a character who was living in a zoo exited the zoo to investigate something, that it was the entrance to Auckland Zoo that she walked out of.

I've watched a bit of TV lately. 

 

1. Tipping Point, Episode 100 (season 10). High Drama as our main protagonist attempts to win up to $20k (GBP). - TVNZ On Demand

 

2. Loki Season 1, episode 1: Interesting and about what you'd expect from the MCU - high production values, good casting, weirdness and a bit of confusion. - Disney +

 

3. Season 1 of Mosquito Coast: Based very loosely on the book by Paul Theroux and starring his nephew, Justin Theroux, the story covers a family on the run from the US Govt, for unknown reasons. They head south to Mexico, run afoul of the Cartels and look to head further south to live a peaceful life. It's quite good, but not really like the book or the movie. - Apple TV+
