    The final couple of seasons were certainly weaker than the first two but I thought the ending was amazing.

    I don't believe anyone who watched through the whole series could get through the finale without some tears!

    The final episode of season two of Sex Education is one of the best things I've watched in years. The school play is on another level.

    I watched the whole series but didnt even bother with the last 3 episodes. The only fun characters in the last season for me were Bad Janet and that straight-laced looking hell head-honcho with the foul mouth and imaginative torture regimens.

    You should finish it. The ending is really good.

    I'm so impressed with all the character arcs. Whilst it's obvious each episode is preaching/teaching a different lesson to teenagers (and the rest of us), it still feels natural and unforced.

    Started this too, real good. Although dont tell me this was filmed in the UK. All that picturesque leafy green backdrop and clear sunny skies aint any England I remember. Unless they somehow managed to film the entire series during England's 12-minute summer.

    Genuinely curious to how long production was delayed whilst they waited for sunny days.

    We watched the first two episodes of Sex Education last night. Great show! Thanks for the recommendation.

    Life on Mars?
    Happy Valley?
    Line of Duty?
    Unforgotten?
    The Guardian?

    All Britishy policy murdery shows. All highly recommended.

    A little bit of Gillian Anderson doesn't hurt either. Always had a thing for her.

    Was just thinking about this. Deeply. Only ever saw a tiny bit of the X-Files, zero interest, and zero impression of Gillers as a mega-hotty sexpot.

    Then years later she suddenly pops up in that great brit crime series "The Fall" as this uber-sexy megamilf.

    Now she's ramped it up even more as a raging nympho platinum-blonde sex therapist who is literally hotter than the sun if the stupid thing was on fire.

    Either my wife or both of us have watched most of those.

    Line of Duty is brilliant and an absolute favourite.

    The Night Manager. **SPOILERS**

    Raced thru this big budget 6-part beeb mini-series. Top stuff, gripping story, BUT some issues for me.

    * Hugh Lawrie is Dr fucken House! Sure he does a great job as the super baddie here and this role is an impressively LONNNNNG way from Prince Thicky Regent but a mega-baddie? FFS. No buy in here.

    * WHY did the baddies not REALISE Tom Hiddlestone was OBVIOUSLY a spy? Blind Freddie could see it from fucken Mars yet they just let the bloke access all their mega-baddie shit and welcome him in with a "oh, who's this wanker, oh, ok then, sign here, you own the company now pardner."

    * Just dont get why the ladies go so gaga for Tom Hiddlestone. I don't see it and it vaguely irritates me. Everyone swoons over him and yet to me he just looks like a little peanut-headed Wayne Barnes.

    Have you tried The Night Of?

    American version of Criminal Justice (also very good). Normally American remakes of everything are awful, but this was excellent.

    Yes, we watched The Night Of. I thought it was good but not amazing.

    Haven't seen Criminal Justice.

    With such good taste in Television, how do you account for being a Waratah fan? ;)

    I'm a late-comer but Killing Eve is also good. Love the snappy dialogue and undercurrent of absurd humour. Feels really out of context, which is great

    The Stranger on Netflix.

    English police drama. Rate it very highly, lots of twists and turns.

    Jennifer Saunders has a cameo.
