The Expanse seasons 1 and 2. (season 3 due soonish)
bloody brilliant if you like a bit of sci-fact style sci fi. (based on a series of books)

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency. Original books written by Douglas Adams (yes... of Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy fame). But UNLIKE the rather crap movie that was made of the Hitchhikers'. The TV series of Dirk Gently's is spot on to the vibe of the books.

Star Trek Discovery.
ok... fair warning... wife and I are 'trek tragics. But this is actually good.

Altered Carbon
(not for the kiddies this one) think Game of Thrones level morals, death and nudity, in a sci fi setting...

Currently sitting here while the missus is watching Sugar Rush on Netflix.  If you get a chance to watch it, don’t. ;D

I did see Season 3 of El Chapo is out and I quite enjoyed the earlier seasons.

Currently rewatching Justified while parents are taking a break from nomading. Fantastic show, great characters and brilliant dialogue.

Might do sons of anarchy or breaking bad with them next. There's so many good shows they haven't caught while they're sitting inside their silverline watching survivor.

Watched that on FTA ages ago, and yes pretty good. Just started watching Taboo on SBS, looks like it might be good also.

You do realize they only show the interesting 4-5 days where they find $5.00 of gold  and not the 360 days of absolute ****ing nothing but debt and spending LOL?

Just recently finished watching The Expanse. Quite enjoyed that. Now moving onto Shameless (UK version)
Also been watching Upper Middle Bogan with the missus - any comedy with Glen Robins is worth watching ;D

the UK Shameless show was a great watch at the start, I didn't like it as much after about a half dozen seasons though.

I first seen the UK version years ago, but only ever seen upto about the 5th season. I only watched all the US version yearly this year - first season of that was real hard to watch as it was just an Americanized version of the same first season of the original, but I found it took off on its own much better from the 2nd season. I do like the UK Frank version however -  the acting is more convincing of a drunk

Same with "The Office" too. The Pommy version is way better than Yank version.

you know that the yanks were planning a US remake of Faulty Towers at one stage.

Manuel would have been Mexican.

But they thought that one character wasn't needed in their version of the show...

yep... you guessed it.

They were planning on a remake of Faulty Towers without...

Basil Faulty.
