    Finally finished Catch 22 which I enjoyed although it has a very different feel to the film.

    Gentleman Jack is about a mid-C19th landowner and coalmining lesbian. Good ensemble cast but Suranne Jones is brilliant in the lead role and the Sally Wainwright script is typically top-notch.

    I have enjoyed Picard a lot. About to download episode 10 now and that's it for this series. A second series in the pipelines I believe.

    The final series of Homeland (series 8) is a stonker so far.

    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.

    Series 5 of Inside No.9 has finished. Usual high quality and eclectic stuff. Six separate stories with superb twists.

    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.

    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.

    Time travel set in Scotland at least the most part of the first two seasons.

    I quite enjoyed that. The English were incorrigible badies. And the 'present day' in the time travel aspect was like 1950s UK... right?

    Season 1 it was 1945 Scotland (the English couple was traveling there)
    In Season 3 it was Scotland 1968 (The heroine coming back from Boston, Mass.)

    I've got some catching up to do then. I must have watched series 1 only.

    We now did a binge watching of the Netflix Anne of Green Gables series. It was quite well done.

    Westworld S03 is OK. Less pretentious and less epic and less confusing than S02. It's a bit dumbed-down compared to the previous two series. But I am enjoying it nevertheless.

    "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.
