    I know its been on there quite a while but just watched the first series of The Sinner and thought it was excellent. Highly recommend.

    Started Undercover yesterday. Its based in Belgium so the original audio is Flemish but the English dubbing isnt too bad.

    Its about undercover police trying to infilitrate an organised crime gang.

    3 episodes in and so far, so good.

    Just watched the first episode last night.

    Seems promising. Just hope I can get past the dubbing and stop thinking of that big black nan in police academy.

    Yeah, enjoyed both series of that.
    Excellent cast, Carrie Coon is superb in the second series.
    Third series coming in the summer apparently.

    Started watching What/If over the weekend too.

    Utter shite.

    Ridiculous characters, terrible acting, every american style cliche you can imagine, laughable storyline and that bird from Bridget Jones (who now looks like they melted her down and rebuilt a scrawny version using added silicone and botox)

    I lasted 3 episodes - I'd have had more enjoyment at a spice girls concert.

    I'm 5 episodes in on that, stopped while my daughter is doing her exams.
    Its really good, much better than that Titans bollocks that introduced them.
    Swamp Thing coming up soon.

    Apparently this is a good accompaniment to the series, haven't watched it yet so I've no idea but seen it recommended.

    Having watched the 3rd episode of Chernobyl I can also confirm, it's gripping stuff.

    Here's an actual pic of those young miners. Sign reads “We will fulfill the government’s request!”

    Love it, so far episode 8 is the least funny but episode 7 is the best of the bunch.

    If anyone’s into zombie/post apocalypse shows then Black Summer has been gripping for the first few episodes. Very tense, pretty dark in places.

    I am two episodes in and wavering. I tend to watch with subtitles because of a hearing problem, but these don't correspond with the dubbed dialogue.

    I watched another 3 last night, so with 4 left to go ill stick with it, but yeah, the dubbing im finding is getting worse. Main characters are bearable but some of the characters on the periphery its shocking. Ive had to stick subtitles on a few times to understand whats being said and youre right, the english subtitles do not match the english audio in parts.

    The dialogue and subtitle translations have presumably been done independently, probably by different people. The style of speech used differs.

    I will press on with it though, as it's better than Britain's Got No Talent, which Mrs TDA is glued to.

    Don't know if it's been mentioned but I'm enjoying White Gold, a comedy about double glazing salesmen in the early 80s. There are two of the Inbetweeners in it.

    That may have been me. Or not. Either way, I was pleasantly surprised by how much they tried to stick to the facts - a very rare thing in modern "true life" films these days.
