One of the best comedy series ever.
I'm off work this week so have been giving Kodi a bit of a hammering over the weekend, Just finished watching the first series of 'Money Heist', it's about the perfect Bank robbery and very compulsive viewing.
It's Spanish with Subtitles but don't let that put you off, best TV series so far this year imo.
Been watching a few things on Netflix lately. Annihilation was a load of bollocks and so is Danny Dyers 'Real Football Factories'.
If you watch 'Still Game' Punt you need to watch it from the beginning, Episode1 starts of a bit corny while you get to know the characters but once you do it's fantastic belly laughing episodes one after the other, with a few Christmas specials to boot.
Might leave it now for a double whammy over the Summer holidays.
There were a few moments in the 2nd series that seemed a bit far fetched but overall I highly recommend it.
Saw the original trailer when I presume Sneaky Pete knocks on somebody door claiming to be their son and I thought this looks interesting, I've just remembered I started watching the first episode but can't recall why I turned it off, I'm pretty sure I was watching something else at the time or kodi was fcuking up and turned it off with the intention of going back to it.
I'll definitely give it a go.
The Money Heist has got good reviews but I'm not going to be able to watch it as Mrs Seen refuses to watch anything with subtitles
There's also a dubbed version Seen
I didn't realise that until half way through the first series.
You only had to go back one page, man I loved it, everything about it was fantastic, and I don't usually like those kind of shows.

Currently watching 'The Leftovers', which is a really interesting and well made show.
I've watched the first 6 episodes and am really enjoying it, quite a slow burn (a bit like The Americans) but I would say definitely worth having another go, mate. Apparently the show gets better as it progresses, the review scores from Metacritic are...
65 - season 1
80 - season 2
98 - season 3
...it was the glowing reviews for season 3 that got me interested in the first place.
Just finished the 3rd and final season of The Leftovers. It was some ride.
Admittedly there were times when I didn't have a clue what the fuck was going on, although I guess that's no surprise for a show from the same guy who created Lost. I'm not usually keen on shows with supernatural / mystical themes but this was very different as much of it is left ambiguous and for the viewer to decide upon. Fantastic acting throughout, especially from the impressive Carrie Coon.
It's pretty graphic and not half as daft as it sounds.
Blows my mind imagining young fuckers 100+ years ago signing up to go to the fucking ARCTIC! "We don't have a TV or a PC or a Playstation.... let's wander the fucking Arctic and most likely die!" "I hear Blackheath have just started up a football team?" "Football! lol It'lll never take off mate... to the Arctic we go!"
