Just finished Narcos series 3, and dare I say it was just as good as the previous 2.

Just finished 'Tin Star' on Sky Boxsets. Loved it; one of those show's that makes you wanna watch the next episode. Very good show!

'Fargo' - all of them were fantastically written, and 'Riviera' on Sky Atlantic recently was a gripping watch.

I really didn't get on with that at-all. Something about it I couldn't engage with.

Did you stick with it to the end?

To be perfectly honest, no. I will give it another go, it's still on the Sky box.

Trouble with it, for me anyway, was that I was so enamoured with Twin Peaks that I viewed everything else through that prism. Thought Tin Star was trying too hard. Normally like Tim Roth, but this didn't do it for me.

It really built for me. Particularly because as it goes on the back-story develops, and the protagonists all show a dark edge to their characters.

I will be giving Narcos a go, looks really good.

Watching Star Trek Discovery and am very impressed so far. I'd be impressed if the high standard is kept up for the entire run.

Yes, done all three episodes of Discovery. Special effects really rather good. Especially the Klingons. Can't recommend Narcos enough. save for Twin Peaks probably telly of the year so far.

Never liked Kojak myself.
