^ Been looking forward to it too, though weirdly when I sat down to watch the first episode earlier I didn't feel like watching it.
My concentration has become really bad, I don't want to watch anything with any kind of plot or storyline, I just can't seem to focus long enough.

I've been watching The Comeback with Lisa Kudrow from 15 years ago

Yeah, i know what you mean, my focus is awful much of the time too, and if that wasn't bad enough, i've just watched the recap (of season 2) and couldn't remember half of it - my memories shocking!

The Spy

"Based on the life of the Israeli spy, Eli Cohen" 7.9/10 IMDB
Sasha Baron Cohen plays a serious role, and pulls it off very well!

I suggest you do, if you've forgotten as much as me (whole ****ing characters!)

I'm beginning the 3rd episode, and it's still bat-shit crazy, lot's of plates spinning, scheming, etc. I'm liking it so far, but i may have to youtube a 5min recap of the second season just to make sense of some of it

It's probably not for you then , the first half hour is about the most exciting part of the first series , I finished the first season but never felt compelled to return.

Russian Doll is brilliant , it was quite well promoted when it was released but surprised how few have seen it

Money Heist . Entertaining enough to make you overlook the fact it's a paint by numbers heist film stretched over 3 seasons .

I also loved Happy! but everyone I've reccomended it to hated it

Anyone following the new series of Better Call Saul? It's a slow burner, way more so than Breaking Bad. But it's well done, lots of good acting, intriguing characters and relationships.

New episode out today. Shit will surely go down between Lalo and Gus.

Great show. I like how the lead actor is portraying his role as Saul, yet he's also portraying Saul 'acting' in certain scenes too (if that makes sense)

Yes, Better Call Saul is really good. Yes, it's definitely a slow burner! It took me a few attempts to get into it. Personally, I found the Saul's brother back-story really dry. But this series is spot on.



Was great to see Hank t'other week!

^^ I think I know what you mean! It's a clever, layered performance from Bob Odenkirk. It must be strange and meta acting as a character, who's acting as a character.

^ yeah, I found the earlier seasons a bit dull at times. This season's been understated as usual, without much really happening But it's been an intriguing watch so far.
