Just finished what turned out to be just series 1 of HANNA.

Got a little drudgy around the middle, but otherwise was pretty good.

Could actually leave it as is, but will be worth having another look when series 2 drops.


#5183

Still unavailable.

Get onto your mate again, @Dunlop.


#5184

Easily in my top 10 favourite shows ever, enjoy!


#5185

I’m almost up to date with Killing Eve. It’s fairly entertaining.


#5186

Just came in to post how much I’ve enjoyed the first 2 eps of Season 2.

Had some hearty chuckles. This show knows how to take the pizz out of itself better than any that easily springs to mind.

Really enjoying it.


#5187

The first season I took a couple of episodes to get into the comedy/drama battle. I wasn’t sure which way it was going. It turns out it can do both comfortably.


#5188

Anyone else here watched Castle Rock? Thoughts?


#5189

I know I’m 15 years behind the times, but we just watched The Wire.

Superb.


#5190

You are well behind the times.

Best series ever made in my opinion.

Did you watch all seasons?


#5191

Definitely in my top 3.


#5192

yep - all. Very realistic, and gave both drama as well as humour. Excellent characters. The whole thing was very well done.

I’m now reading up on David Simon, the creator and writer.


#5193

Omar Little is awesome.

So many great characters.


#5194

Also in my top 5 TV drama series, ever.


#5195

You’re not alone. I just watched the whole thing at last a few months back too.


#5196

I got sidetracked midway through Series 2. Haven’t got back to it…

And I’m getting to the interesting part of I Know Who You Are now. Five eps to go after finishing this one.


#5197

I couldn’t get into it!


#5198

Yeah I’m in the same boat. Maybe Season 2 is the lessor of the series?

Funny thing is that when I see it pop up on Foxtel I don’t watch a random episode as I don’t want to spoil it just in case I start watching again.

This is a quote from an article about the writer, David Simon. It’s true what he says, those early episodes in a season you are trying really hard to keep up and work out where this is going, and then… BANG… you are locked in and onboard for the ride.

"Rafael Alvarez, a former Sun reporter whom Simon hired to write for the show, said, “You know how, in a Russian novel, the reader does the work for the first hundred pages, and then it turns and you’re lost in it? With ‘The Wire,’ it might be Episode 6 before it turns and you’re in.”
