The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel – Season 4

This felt like Maisel back in form after wandering a bit – albeit getting plenty more value out of the supporting characters too, especially Abe Weissman and Moishe Maisel.  The plot arc shows The...

The Stranger

For some reason our TV was suddenly inundated with Harlan Coben stories, so we picked this one on the strength of the casting – it seemed quite a decent mystery piece whose episodes left...

Succession – Season 2 & 3 0

Succession – Season 2 & 3

We kinda mainlined the remainder of this: a weirdly compelling show considering how frigging appalling all of the people in it are. Srsly, there’s barely a redeeming feature among them. It’s TOTALLY irrelevant that...

Succession – Season 1

Billions – Season 5 (7-12)

Second half of Season 5, which was halted due to COVID. It might be the lack of recency, but it really felt like this grouping of 6 episodes ratcheted the intrigue and double-crossing RIGHT...

Vigil

Ooh, I loves me a bit of bleak submarine-based drama – and the UK can be really good at doing bleak, although in a different way to Das Boot.  This was a gripping 6-parter...
