I struggled with episode 1 of series 5 of Peaky Blinders. I may have burned out on the stylized/glamourized violence and slow-motion tough-guy family, the either-shouty or not-shouty tone, and with the anachronistic music schtick it purveys. Just might have run its course for me.
I struggled with episode 1 of series 2 of Patriot. But I think it has simply shifted its tone and texture to something different from series 1 so perhaps I'll get into that when the mood is right. I loved series 1.
Not looking forward to Westworld series 3. Frankly, I found series 2 pretentious, difficult to follow and therefore tedious. That was in the wake of a tremendous series 1. I will have a look at series 3 but it feels like I ought to go back and watch series 2 again in order to get to grips with it, and that is a very tall - and postponable - order.
@ponderablesaid My wife and me are watching the Outlander series. We enjoyed reading the books a while back (well the first three). The series is very explicit in both sex and gore, sometimes they overdo it.
"Borgen is a Danish political drama television series created by Adam Price. It tells how Birgitte Nyborg, a minor centrist politician, becomes the first female Prime Minister of Denmark against all the odds."
Just starting to watch this. Seems really good. The Danish language sounds very interesting.
