    I still haven't seen Seasons 5 or 6. I really should get around to that because I loved the first two.

    It's not even Season 5 (especially) and 6 that you're missing out on. It's 3 and 4, which are god-tier TV. The second half of S3 is just unbelievably good.

    Its not dropped off, i'll give it that. Wouldn't go out calling it great though. With Chuck and Ax being on the same side that dynamic that lit up the first two seasons is diminished. Connarty/Taylor can't carry the rivalry as much.

    Letting Dollar Bill off the leash for an episode was fantastic though, needs more of his and Wag's mentalness

    Well I think the show has changed its focus from fancy trading to personal development. Depends if you like that though

    I personally like Chuck and Axe working together though Wags could definitely be given some more screen time

    I'm expecting a large twist to be revealed in the last couple episodes with Connarty

    Line of Duty Spoilers....................




    Yeah the glory days of season 1-3 are gone and its now a bit of a slog. The cast are still good and the additions especially Graham were great, but this season really felt like they were holding back for what is hopefully the last season. The finale even for the show was silly as hell. I don't know who H is nor do the writers I suspect. I hope they don't go with Kate who is the betting favourite but after 2 very underwhelming seasons they may feel they have to go for something wild.Best of luck writers.

    Billions is interestingly poised. Next episode could be a cracker though it feels like they're setting most of this up for the next season

    I see a Catch-22 miniseries is starting this week in the US, and according to what I just read will be on Channel 4 in the UK. Interested to see what they do with it - Catch-22 is probably my favourite book of all time, but how you convey the humour and style of the book in TV format is critical, and could be easily messed up. I've not seen the 1970s (I think) movie adaptation, but have heard very mixed reviews, so I hope this does it justice.

    The Virtues the new show from Shane Meadows had its first episode the other night and it was superb. Stephen Graham the lead actor was great. One of those guys who can terrify you one scene and be so sympathetic next scene. In the era of average UK drama which is for the most part sub par binge toss, good to see this on telly.

    Not going to link it, but This Is England and A Room For Romeo Brass is on Youtube in decent quality aka 2 of Meadows previous films.

    Its been a long time since I've watched the film, but its every bit as confusing (and more) than the book can be. It was good, but not a patch on the book.

    Clooney tends to do really good projects in general - Confessions of a Dangerous Mind is one of my favourite films. The cast list looks top notch too, so I'm really​ looking forward to this.

    The ending sequence of episode 2 of Chernobyl was legit scary. Well maybe not scary, but terrifying in it's own way, if you were imagine yourself in their shoes (suits).
