Hey! Stop bullying me!

You'll need to defend the current season of Line of Duty, as it is self evident to everyone that it has turned shite.

Here's something good for you to watch, 'BACK TO LIFE' which is on BBC3 so available on iPlayer.

Lucy Mangan reviewed it thusly at The Guardian.

I did three of the six episodes back-to-back last night, it's great.

Quote:
If we have to mention the F-word – and I think it’s law now when something female-led appears, and doubly so here when the series was produced by the team behind Fleabag – then it will just be to say that they have in common only what all great dramas, comedies, mysteries and small-screen fiction of any genre have in common: perfect pacing, polished writing, intricately and carefully laid plots and payoffs, and an abiding sense that everyone involved knows this story and its people in their bones and has done their best – with talent to burn – to lay it before us. A surfeit of everything.

I don't think anything will ever beat her sister screaming "GET YOUR HANDS OFF MY MISCARRIAGE!" from the first episode. Mostly because it's a set of words I could've ever have imagined anyone stringing together in the same sentence.


I watched season 1 and thought it was good, but didn't blow me away. Gave episode 1 of season 2 a go earlier and thought it was amazing. I've just binged the whole lot and I'm struggling to think of a more perfect set of six episodes of anything. Utterly brilliant in all respects!

I’m in agreement with Trooper here. Watched both series in the past couple of weeks.

Though Series 1 was very good, don’t get me wrong, but Series 2 was (IMO) significantly better and just absolutely brilliant.

I knew that blousy tart was setting Ted up. Mind, he is a bit of an eejit with the ladies.

Wasn’t impressed with how Line of Duty fizzled out this season.

It was shit after Stephen Graham got killed. Speaking of which there's a new Shane Meadows C4 thing with him in soon that sounds like it'll be decent.

Really illuminating interview with Shane Meadows here.

NOTE - Gets rather dark.

Man, that series of LOD was insultingly stupid. That whole interview with Hastings in the last ep was dire. I guessed who it was likely to be in ep3.

Started watching LoD with Jem the other day, up to S1E2 now. It's quite gripping, but I can't get over just how bad the main character is at acting.

Actually, that might be being unfair - I suspect it's the direction and script rather than his ability, but he just seems to spend all his time standing around looking confused or pensive.

Excellent new Taskmaster tonight. I wasn't looking forward to it too much this time around due to Paul Sinha being on it. But if I managed to get through the series with Noel fucking Fielding in it, I can do this one too.

Did anyone watch all of Catastrophe?

If so, in the very last scene:
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
Was Rob committing suicide?

No, that wasn't my read at all:

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
The "dangerous swimming" water was a metaphor for life in general. Choosing to stay with Sharon was like swimming into the dangerous water - fun but also risky. As opposed to the safe, but less fulfilling, option of taking the job in America and breaking up. I thought it was a nice comment on their relationship as portrayed in the show -- clearly in love with other, bur often not at ease with each other.

It seems even they don't know. Horgan agrees with me, Delaney agrees with you.

Hey! The Beeb has picked up the TV series of What We Do In The Shadows, surprisingly. On this Sunday evening. I've been enjoying it over the last 6 weeks. A worthy sequel to the flimum.
