SBS On Demand-currently watching

Das Boot! How good was that? Episode 3 had us on the edge of our seats!

And the ending..... can't say any more!

The Teach series 1, just started series 2 is intriguing, those Poles, gruff and forthright in their manner, very different to the polite Swedes/Danes in the police dramas

Finishes on Thursday, last runs of ‘ ALL GOVERNMENTS LIE’ - a rather disturbing look at the dumbing down of journalism under the stultifying influence of Corporate America. Could not be more timely an

Over the past couple of weeks have watched "The Young Pope" then "The New Pope"    

It’s British  First few series are good but like most shows they deteriorate over time

HI All,

 

Currently watching 'The Orville', an interesting 'spoof' / Sci-Fi series which interestingly has a look at current social issues in most episodes.

+1 for Orville

soo much better than the latest Star Trek series (lots of potential but ultimately boils down to militarisation of discourse).

I find Orville is what Star Trek always tried to do however only occasionally pulled off.

Series 2 seems to have stopped at 6th episode -  will there be more???

I believe it's a good series, however I'm such a fan of the film - I decided not spoil / diversify the experience of it.

Maybe just stupid -  but there it is.

I don't watch SBS FTA, just On-Demand, and it's my clear perception that the number and length of ad breaks is on the rise.  Has anyone else noticed this?

That's spot on. I feel OnDemand/streaming is still more-less a cowboy domain. It seems to be whatever rules broadcaster self imposes or think they will get away with - goes. At the end of the day, still marginally and sometimes heaps better than FTA.

Lots of really great movies available from SBS OnDemand.

In some respects (art-house, Asian cinema, etc) it rivals Netflix for me, where it's mostly sameness rules.

Started watching The Returned (France).

 

Infinitely more engaging than the Yank version, surprise surprise. A few disturbing scenes, will be a good series methinks.

Recently saw Fahrenheit 11/9 on SBS streaming, Michael Moore's Trump movie. Although not without Moore's silly antics and grandstanding, it is quite an engaging watch - better than any of his previous efforts. If you can stomach Moore (no pun intended) - a recommended checkie-outie doco.

The Sinking of the Laconia was compulsive viewing. 

 

Last thing I watched here was the early classic Jedda. Has now been taken down. and I wanted to share that with friends.

Just finished season 2 of Trapped.  I love how these Nordic shows unfold at their own unhurried pace, not forced, like so many US series.  But they're never boring.

 

Season 2 is not as claustrophobic as Season 1, but just as good.  People seem like people.  Life seems real.

I watched the the first episode of project Blue Book last night.  Another US series let-down.  I hope it picks up a bit.  The storyline is very thin.  I notice SBS appears to be drip-feeding episodes one at a time.

Bummer

I taped it last night in the hope it was going to another left field series.

Looking forward to the return of Killing Eve next month

Yep, after all the hype advertising wise it was quite a disappointment! No comparison to the excellent and inventive Counterpart!

Pagan Peak is mighty scary! https://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/program/pagan-peak

Hanging out for The Good Fight's return season https://www.sbs.com.au/programs/thegoodfight

I really enjoyed Pagan Peak.

 

Just seen the trailer for the second series of Killing Eve - it suggests it is only on iView.

 

Anyone a fan of Tin Star?

I thought I was well up to speed with all the good euro dramas, especially the nordic noir, but this thread shows I have missed a lot. Thanks for everyone posting.

 

Here are some suggestions missed, or only posted by one other member.

 

Dark - if you liked Stranger Things, this German drama is full on and set half in the 80's

Gamorra - brilliant Italian crime drama, especially the 1st season.

Les Revenants - Superior French original of 'The Returned'

The Disappearance - Another great French series

Fortitude - This is in English, but stars Sofie Grabol of The Killing fame, and a host of other scandi stars. Set in the Norwegian arctic.

Just binged season 2 of Counterpart. Enjoyed it. Was a bit concerned they were going to try and drag it out with more seasons. They kept it moving with a good ending.
Now for Killing Eve once more episodes are released.

Just started Tin Star last night. Enjoyed the 1st ep. Tim Roth is usually pretty reliable.

Looking forward toTin Star! Stars Tim Roth and it's a joint UK/Canadian production

https://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/video/1467331139807/tin-star

https://www.rottentomatoes.com/tv/tin_star/s01

< Set in the majestic Canadian Rockies, Tin Star tells the story of Jim Worth (Roth), a former British detective now small town police chief, who brings his family to the tiny, tranquil town of Little Big Bear for a better life. When a vast new oil refinery, fronted by corporate liaison Elizabeth Bradshaw (Hendricks), opens nearby and their new home is flooded with workers looking for drugs, gambling and prostitution, Jim has to work hard to protect his family and the town from organized crime. Then crime strikes back. And when Jim's family suffers a shocking tragedy, old, dark and dangerous secrets surface. We discover that Jim is not the man we think he is but is in fact 'Jack' - the professional name for his alcoholic alter-ego: a man more unpredictable, more charismatic and infinitely more menacing than Jim. Part drama, part thriller and part dark comedy, Tin Star is an exhilaratingly smart, breathlessly suspenseful thrill ride of a show as deceit, guilt, love, and all-consuming rage lead inexorably to a gut-wrenching finale. >

Sadly Tin Star started to lose the plot in the last couple of episodes!
