The Good TV Thread

I saw some of the first show. That really highlights the level of corruption that existed (and still prevails, maybe?) within UK police forces. Think South Yorkshire Police (Hillsborough). Think Police forces investigating the Birmingham and Guildford bombings (neither of which those actually responsible have been found guilty - instead they pin it on innocent people which also leaves the relatives of the victims without justice). Think the RUC.

Watched ‘Back to the Joy’ on RTE player the other night, decent enough, good to see where all the wardens from back there are now. The living conditions in the cells were shocking back then, a lot better now.
Big Walking dead fan too but find some of the episodes are fillers. Good end to this series though.

Best quiz around. Luv pax mans mush when someone doesn’t know his Richard Strauss from his johan .


#346

Thought it was abit of an anti climax myself . Would have preferred a more gruesome or shocking death . But setup for next season nicely .


#347

Yeah I enjoy it. If I can answer one question I’m chuffed for the week.


#348

For the maths questions just answer 0 1 or pi( as in 3.14 not chicken & mushroom). You be surprised how often that works.


#349

Only Connect is decent as well, tricky as hell.


#350

That’s a novel approach.


#351

That’s good too, although her edgy sense of humour (which I enjoy) can seem out of place.


#352

Good quiz.
Far less challenging but enjoyable quiz is Pointless.


#353

The episode if HIGNFY on Friday 13th was presented by Victoria Coren. She likes showing her cleavage. David Mitchell must have a great tongue.


#354

Ah we’re better than that Beeko…
( in public at least )


#355

Feck that!


#356

Ah here, but yes.

The James Acaster - Repertoire stand up shows on Netflix are absolutely brilliant IMHO


#358

He’s a brilliant comic.


#359

Agreed.
I think he’s class.


#360

Don’t know if it’s been mentioned but “The Defiant ones” on Netflix is excellent. Tells the story of Jimmy Iovine and Interscope records. He’s had an illustrious career to say the least


#361

He had a memorable appearance on Would I Lie To You? last year.
