Be prepared for lots of twists and turns, confusion and lies and several storylines on the go at once, right from the off.

So basically standard spy fodder but needs a few episodes to see if it can be a cut above average.

Mark Strong is the only recognisable face which is often not a bad thing, oh and the guy who plays Podric? I think, in Game of Thrones, they're looking to be the main characters as the story develops and the two principle females, maybe a third, I reckon.

Not given anything away BTW. :thumbsup:
Deep State is bloody brilliant. The sound and picture quality is also awesome, some Dramas could learn a thing or two about clear dialogue from the producers of Deep State.

She’s very good in “The Missing” and “Line of duty”... Two of the very best British series I’ve ever watched...


Oh I completely forgot about those. See what I mean, an understated star.

Just because we’re on opposing sides on just about everything doesn’t mean you’re right and I’m wrong.

Has anyone been watching that 'Kiss me First' on Channel 4?

It's apparently a Netflix series, going out worldwide later this year. It's quite strange and I'm not too sure what it's all about but it's oddly compelling when you watch it.

Since the early '90's but Spooks and Tipping the Velvet in 2002 made her famous. :smilin:

It’s an adaptation of Gerald Durrell's "My Family and Other Animals" it features Keeley Hawes as Louisa Durrell, a widow who moves her family from England to the Greek island of Corfu in 1935. All the actors are brilliant but Keeley is a brilliantly understated star.


Huge fan of Durrell's books when I was a kid.

Not seen this series but Keeley was simply wonderful in 'Line of Duty' and is a naturally beautiful woman as well. :cuppaT:


She is beautiful. First emerged in Ashes to Ashes, the sequel to Life on Mars. She was excellent in that too.
You have to watch the Durells, it’s good Sunday evening tv.


Yes, she was famous for Spooks and Tipping the Velvet (did not watch either) well before Ashes to Ashes though (great show as was LOM). :thumbsup:

I'm psyching myself up to watch the second series of Marvel's 'Legion' on Fox. It's very surreal and enigmatic and supposedly based in the X-men universe though you wouldn't think it.

It's the sort of show you need to prepare your head for, got the first episode recorded and waiting for the right time to watch it.

Dumbed down enough for you to watch and give us your learned opinion. :smilin:

How else would I know it was dumb - clairvoyance? :roll:

Used to love it as a kid and I think it's been directed by Bill Mumy the original Will Robinson.

Anyways, anyone watched it? I just binged it over two nights, up to Episode 8 of 10 - gonna try do the last 2 tonight.

I like it and it's got a few twists from the original format, like - I'm not giving too much away by saying the insidious Dr Zachary Smith is a woman in this and she does a bloody good.

It is a little too character based if I'm being picky, lots of American series are though, that aside I'm enjoying it. :thumbsup:


*Cough*

viewtopic.php?f=13&t=44620&start=90

I'm watching it with my wife and the older Little Miss Avon so can't binge watch it to my annoyance. We are up to episode 4 and we are all enjoying it.

Slick production, Dr Smith is creepy and I am beginning to warm to the robot (which is now slightly less creepy and more human than the good doctor...)

I wouldn't have believed that they could produce a remake that was actually worse than the original, but they succeeded. Good production values though - but that simply indicates more money than sense.
