    Coupling Series 2 (2002) 8/10

    The comedy is taken to greater extremes and characters like Sally are given more to do also.

    Fargo Season 2 - 8/10
    I kept reading that the second season is supposed to be even better than the first, and it is great, but I don't agree at all that it's better. It's different, and that's a good thing, but it is missing that Coen-esque style that I loved about the first season, that weird randomness. It is a lot more straight forward than the first season and most of the characters simply aren't as interesting to me as, for example, Lorne Malvo or Molly Solverson. Still great, though. Can't wait for Season 3.

    Legends of Tomorrow just gets better and better, some of the stories are total cliche, but the characters are just great. I've even started thinking of Sarah Lance as the new Buffy :eek: 9/10

    Isn't Ted Danson in season two? Guy's a comedy legend and walks on water as far as I'm concerned.

    The Replacement (2017) 7.5/10
    3-Part Hitchcockian thriller. Vicky McClure give a subtly chilling performance and Morven Christie is also excellent in the other lead. The pacing is effective, and there are some decent twists too.

    Coupling Series 3 (2003) 8/10

    American Crime S3 - This show is so well written and so well acted, always moving, but it's so depressing it's sometimes a struggle to watch 7/10

    Is it on Amazon Prime? I've heard good things.

    Roots (2017) 7.5/10
    This was a worthwhile, and powerful drama about the history of slavery. Its an epic and ambitious project. Its not perfect, and I'm not sure I would watch it again in a hurry, but it at least does some kind of justice to the history and those who were victims of slavery.

    Stalker Season 1 (2015) 6/10
    This is a solid idea for a crime show. I like the lead actress, and some of the episodes were actually scary. I found the idea of having cover versions of 80s pop at the end of every episode very cheesy, and the quality of the standalone episode is very up and down. There are only so many original stories you can do about stalking. But shame there won't be a second season.

    Not sure if it's on UK tv, as I download it. (Not to be confused with American Crime Story which is very different) It's a great show, if you can see it then I'd say give it a go, but be aware the first two seasons did not have happy endings and I doubt this one will either :(

    Big Little Lies - I've only seen the first 3 episodes, but this is so much better than I expected and Reece Witherspoon is Amazing, I'd watch it for her alone 8/10

    I've seen the first two and I agree. In the first one I had trouble engaging with her character, but oddly she became more human in the second part, and there's some really funny moments involving her too:D
     
    Priceless: Just watching ep 4 now and RW's character gets more and more real as it goes on. Hope she wins awards for this performance
