Not sure if it's already been mentioned, but Vigil on Foxtel is absolutely gripping. Topical too considering the nuclear submarine discussion.

I'm two episodes in and I think I'll binge the rest tonight.
I watched the last episode earlier this week. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Gripping is a great description. Top show.

Just started Squid Game, for a silly premise it's surprisingly good. There's something about watching Koreans shouting and getting angry with each other, they are pretty good at it
Loving it. Much better in Korean with subtitles.

Squid game excellent, those wacky koreans make some interesting stuff..
Reservation dogs good also , funny and also poignant at times..
On Tuesday night my 16 year old son suggests to me that we should watch Squid Game together. I get home last night and find out he has already watched the first 3 episodes without me! The impatience of youth :mhihi

Yeah it's pretty good, nice combo of police procedural with the submarine cold (hot) war themes.

The home of Dusty
Since the Christmas episode I've enjoyed Ted Lasso again, last couple of episodes particularly.

Tell me your secrets on Amazon is a magnificent show despite the stomach churning subject matter. Two or three amazing performances.

If you like oddball sport docos, you may like the Battered Bastards of Baseball on Netflix.
Back in the early seventies, there were no more independent pro ball teams left in US baseball. All minor league teams are owned by the majors.
The Portland (Oregon) Beavers AAA team left for Spokane, Washington due to low crowds.
In comes Bing Russell - actor, father of Kurt, and baseball lover - and starts up his own Single A league team, the Mavericks.
Mayhem ensues
Great fun

Just finished binging on 10 episode Season 1 El Candidato on Amazon Prime which was good.

Next on my list also on Amazon Prime will be El Presidente, (Rotten Tomatoes gave it 100% approval so I will see if I agree).

Just watched the first 3 eps and don't reckon I'll be able to get to sleep if I watch the rest tonight! Chilling!
Danish crime stuff... hard to fault.

Billions, what a finale. Can’t get enough it. Soundtrack is excellent as well.

My kids had this on and I ended up hooked.

Completely changed most people's opinion of her I reckon.
Might have to watch it. She fascinated me when she was competing. Although I have always thought of 400m hurdlers as slow 400m runners.

It’s a good watch. I didn’t dislike Jana beforehand just thought she was a bit of a show pony. But she’s been outstanding on this; an absolute beast. Great attitude as well. The Poo has done a lot better then I thought he would as well; really toughed it out.

I do like the old school aspect of the instructors. Reminds me of most of my footy coaches from the 80s and 90s ha ha ha.
