Couldn't get into Sons of Anarchy.  House of Cards is pretty good, Better Call Saul was OK.

If you don't mind subtitles

The Bridge, The Killing and Borgen from Sweden/Denmark or Gamorrah and Romanzo Criminale from Italy.

The Bridge - Denmark/Swedish one was excellent - up there with one of my fave noir type series.

As you know Nimmers, Breaking Bad is unsurpassable in every way, but a good runner up which is immersing, irritating and highly watchable AND makes you want to watch the entire series in one binge fest is, Damages with Glenn Close.  Also got an excellent Ted Danson in it.  Highly recommended, and the signature choon is annoyingly good too!  (It's on Netflix).

Just checked it's on Netflix and it is, AND 5 seasons!  Will deffo try it Nimz and report back.

Goateee:  re-tried Always Sunny, but still 'didn't get it'!

Swiss:  Surprised at your lack of enthuse for BB - I've watched it circa 5 times now and love it.  Anyone spot the Cameo of Walt at Jesse's drug party - was deffo him as one of his druggie mates.
I also found, as I don't concentrate enough, that reading the indepth storylines for each episode really helps.  For instance I didn't notice that it was Mike who had injected the legless Twin at the hossie to finish him off - it literally showed a  two second screen shot of Mike putting something in a bin.
I've probably missed loads more stuff - but hey!  :P

Hank I thought was an engaging character, liked his DEA storyline with the Turtle episode...

After series 2 didn't much care for Jessie

That's fair enough Nimmers - I guess we all speak as we find and it is a different part of Wales completely.  Have to say, most Welsh people are hilarious, insane, funny and welcoming, it was just 'the few' that ruined it for me.

I hope Series 2 goes out on Netflix or iPlayer before Series 3 starts.  Again, I missed it first time round, have seen Series 1 and found it extremeley well acted and written etc.  My threshold for violence seems to have increased successfully since Breaking Bad, though I still find it very traumatising.  Must be a man-thang to enjoy the violence side.

They showed series 1 again on BBCTV before showing series 2. I would imagine they'd do same or at least put it on iplayer before series 3

Some of you are old enough to remember The Sweeney.
Was it an episode or a full length movie, where there was a brilliant bit of acting/dialogue from Jack....
he opens the glove compartment and discovers an apple, and he rants at the new vegetarian driver, that he wants it back filled with ham sandwiches and mars bars....  I want to see that clip again - I haven't seen it for 30 years plus!!!
Anyone got a good memory?

Cheeky Nimmers - come on bet you remember some of it!

Just before arresting some twonk, Jack says 'we're the Sweeney son and we 'aven't 'ad any dinner - brilliant!!!

Also the often repeated, 'shut it'.

I'm going to have to watch it all, but where to find it??

@goat - Oz was too violent for me, it just didn't have much good news going in it did it?  Might re-try Always Sunny  though! :-)

No, I'm not familiar with that, is it on Netflix?

Am enjoying The Good Wife, particularly as Big from Sex and the City is in it. :-)

My missus loves Homeland.

I like NCIS. It's entertaining and undemanding.

A bit like the missus if I'm honest!

Not really sure Nim, I think there are other alternatives, such as Amazon Prime do something now, and I think BT do something - but really there's so much - it's all over load isn't it....

Soz for 'the Stevie' - I know there must be a nicer way of showing a link. 
Anyhooooo it's the Daily Telegraph 39 best progs to watch on Netflix.
I clicked the entire 39 in desperation, tried watching 'Community' switched off half way through ep 2.  Tried Better Call Saul - same thing. 

BB and Narcos - how the hell do you follow those two?

Any suggestions my fellow Netflixers?

I hope they do more Saul

I never fancied "criminal minds" but started season 1 a couple of weeks ago, now we are well into season 2 and it is really good! I'm surprised, but it is

I erm 'acquired' the complete series of  The Soprano's and Ive been binging on it, now half way through S3, Tony is brilliant, perfect casting (as is Junior)

Definitely recommend



Question;
Why is it legal to record free to air TV on a VCR or HD recorder but illegal to download a show that has been on free to air TV ?

It took me a while to get round to the Sopranos as well, but if I'd known it was so tongue in cheek and funny I'd have watched it years ago.

Because when you watch (and record it) from a TV transmission the creators of the show have been paid for their creation (by the TV company, its advertisers etc) "Free to Air" TV might be free to you, but the programmes they show have been paid for.

If you illegally down load it the programme creators don't get a cent.

Thanks M'lud, I get what youre saying

but if its been on free to air already the creators have been paid for it and cant reasonably expect any further money after its been thrown out into the public domain

I mean I could record it and give it to somebody who didnt watch it when it was broadcast, so would they be watching it illegally, seeing as theyre not paying for it ?

Well that's the point - they do expect further money. These shows are expensive to make.

I'm no expert on copyright law, but my understanding is that would be illegal.

You home record - for home use. You can show your friend the recording in your house - that's OK - but you can't give him a copy to take away!  There are also limits (I think) on how many people you could show the recording to at any one time in your house before the event would becoming legally defined as a "Public Performance" - at which point you'd be breaking the law again!

Always been a grey area this one. In the UK back in the 50's and 60's you were supposed to pay for a licence before you could home record anything off the radio. I can remember my dad - always conscientious - had one, for his large classical music library of reel-to-reel tapes he recorded off Radio 3. But when cassette recorders came along everyone could easily record everything and the UK government eventually gave up the licence as unenforceable and unworkable.
