It is possibly the craziest show ever. Could not be made today. Do not watch if you're easily shocked Lol.

I like Spaced. Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg did an excellent job. It is a shame it ended after the 2nd season. I know This Country and The Detectorists, but I did not find it as entertaining as Spaced. I'll try Peep Show after Jam.

I'm Alan Patridge, The Office and Spaced ended the '90s in fine fashion to complement Seinfeld, Frasier and The Larry Sanders Show. Throw in Friends as the makeweight Lol.

Jam and Peep Show plus Curb Your Enthusiam kicked off the '00s brilliantly. Despite the last two spluttering into the '10s, comedy has been struggling for the last decade. Too bad about Louie CK, the idiot could have been king. If Fleabag is the best comedy of the last few years, I think I'll pass.

I watched the first episode of Jam over the weekend. I must say it is something different. I have not seen such a level of dark humour in a long time.

It's out there. You just don't know where "there" is.

Just watched Cobra Kai. Entertaining, if you grew up in the 80s. Season 1 > season 2. But both seasons kept me seated.

I didn't like 2, but one was fun though others recommended were much better

It's not about being objectively good (or not). Neither season is"good" by any stretch. It's about nostalgia (like horns) and if or how much you identify with the original Karate Kid movie IMO.

How are horns nostalgic if the first time you hear is this decade? Maybe if you were born before 1950. For you horns are new, Wilson Magico is nostalgia

True, but I do remember listening to my grandfather's horns as a little kid. And I've heard that same sound at many an audio show. So even for me, it's a "classic" nostalgic sound.

Really enjoying Away, sci- fi without the constant battles or disasters.
Also just started Ratched, love the attire, sets and its Hitchcock vibe.
Guilty pleasure is bingeing on Harlots, Eastenders in period costume.

we are watching it now. What I don't like about HBO streaming is that each episode is released a week apart from the previous episode

Definitely a "whodunnit"

But this way they build up the suspense, intrigue and tension you need. They keep you guessing and hungry for more.
I must say that the prize tastes best if you have to wait for it.

I liked the Watchmen TV series but don't believe it will be everyone's cup 'o tea...
