Hi @cazzesman

 

Fine lot of picks there, however there was no GoT this year.

 

Will have a look through my 'Viewing List' and add some that I enjoyed.

😀 I never stopped to check about GOT not being in 2018.   I can't believe it has been 16 months since it was last on.   Wow!

Yes I'd go with that--and indeed good watch-especially the episode on the British ship with the quirky Pirate Captain

--his girlfriend {who'd eat Bourne for Breakfast!)and crew were captured --her heroics were jaw dropping even if over the top 😛!

I tend to like period pieces if alive-- not just Bodice Rippers 😋!!

 

Oh yes I'd add

Into the Badlands

to Cazzes list

The Bureau: highly recommended! Addictive!

https://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/program/the-bureau

series 4 just out!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bureau_(TV_series)

<The Bureau (original title: Le Bureau des Légendes) is a French political thriller television series created by Éric Rochant and produced by Canal+, which revolves around the lives of agents of the DGSE (General Directorate of External Security), France's principal external security service. Originally aired in France from 27 April 2015, it was launched in the United States and Canada on iTunes on 1 June 2016 as part of a new international "Episodic Cinema" label, quickly reaching the Top Five.[1][2] In the United Kingdom, the series was released exclusively by Amazon Prime on 17 June 2016.[3][4]

The first season received positive reviews in both France and other countries, and won several awards. The second season has been universally acclaimed, and has even been seen by some as the best television ever produced in France.[5] The third and fourth seasons, respectively aired in France beginning 22 May 2017[6] and 22 October 2018,[7] have met with further acclaim, with praise for the show's acting, pacing, plot and realism.

Yep Ray ‘jumped the shark’ last season but this is back to some of his best work.

 

Really enjoying Narcos Mexico.

Hi All,

 

In no particular order,

 

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel

 

The Good Place

 

American Gods, I see Season 2 has begun

 

Killing Eve

 

Bodyguard

 

The Kominsky Method

 

Condor not Jack Ryan

 

Knightfall

 

The Last Kingdom

 

McMafia

 

There are probably more but will have to look at my viewing list on the streaming services and SBS.

We don't watch a lot of TV, but was guttered when The Good Wife finished.

 

I was quite impressed with how well The Good Fight took over, even without Alicia.

 

(Flame suit on) I'd rank the two shows possibly second favourite of all time, behind Breaking Bad

Hi Peter,

 

Just goes to show how people differ, I found the Good Wife to be probably as naff as you thought Jack Ryan was. I saw one and a bit episodes and never returned.

Hi Peter,

 

My mistake, confused Condor with Jack Ryan, you may still have the same opinion but :thumb:

I really enjoyed Condor. Great pace and writing. Ray Donovan is great this season. The Punisher was superb and marvellously brutal. My two favourites would be Big Little Lies and Godless. I was very impressed by the former. Every performance was spot on and the writing and production values were top notch. Godless, on the other hand was, for me, a visual poem. This was a truly beautiful production. Of course, you can’t talk about this show without mentioning the incredible Jeff Daniels. He was perfectly evil and his performance was perfectly delivered. The scene with the miners going to work on that day, escorted by their wives was nothing short of sublime. A great piece of television.
