I don't normally do the binge-watching thing, but I have been watching the box set of the BBC's new supernatural drama The Living And The Dead, filmed around Bristol and set in Somerset, so that I can review it for the Wessex Chronicle, magazine of Wessex Society. The Beeb took the unusual step of making all 6 episodes available on iPlayer before they were broadcast on TV.

A little late to the party, I know (everyone else has probably seen it on streaming), but Universal Channel here in the UK has just started showing Mr Robot. It's just as good as everybody says it is.

I watched Stranger Things, the popular 80s set horror.

:up: Series two of Stranger Things already confirmed. I suppose they have to get a move on before the kids grow up. It's like a Stephen King book turned into a miniseries with Steven Spielberg directing and John Carpenter doing the music.

I watched it as well. I don't normally do the binge-watching thing, but it was only 8 episodes, so not a huge time commitment. I think I watched it over 3 days.

Watched the first few shows of the first season of Lucifer.
Actually pretty good. I imagine faith groups are protesting its existence.
I'd say that it's actually giving people something to think about, the idea of the devil in living in LA solving crimes also lends to the idea of god being real

Anybody else been watching Hooten and the Lady? Another fun show that's more like Bond than Bond is these days.

I am watching Steptoe and Son. It's annoying that some of the colour series is missing and they just have a black and white tape version.

There are a few Pertwee Doctor Who episodes like that. I think one episode of one of his Dalek stories is in b&w, with the rest in colour.

I watched Westworld which was very good. They spent lots of money on it so it was great to look at.

I also enjoyed the Inside No 9 Christmas special which was made in the style of a 1970's British tv horror programme.

enjoyed the first episode of the new season(series) of Sherlock though I hear the second episode is a hot mess(I thought the last season was way all over the place but my faith has been restored.Kinda.)

The second episode is much better than the first. It was The Six Thatchers that people were calling a hot mess.
