  1. Dopesick has stayed with more, due to people I know being in similar - if less drastic - situations. I’m more likely to rewatch Mr Inbetween.
  2. Thanks for those replies about my question, i'd forgotten about that conversation in the car.
  3. Yeah, they certainly added to the end of the episodes.
  4. Elementary finished the last 2 seasons as they were added to Prime at some stage in the last few months. The writing varies over the 7 seasons but it’s easy viewing if your wanting to do something else while it’s on and the 2 main actors are good in their roles. Some occasional iffy acting by some of the supporting cast (I found similar in the superior House, who’s a Sherlock of sorts too). 1-4 are the better seasons I think and you could not have to see it to the end. 3/5 overall (season scores vary between 2 & 4) Mr In-between About a Criminal Jobber in Oz, his life, family and work. Moves at a great pace and has a great style. 3 seasons, mainly 25-30 minute episodes. Grim, funny and sad and highly recommend. 4.5/5 Dope Sick Opioid series based on a book and a real life company / drug. Excellent writing and performances. It’ll make you angry and it’s a grim, charming and painful journey throughout. 5/5 The Tourist Quirky comedy / thriller based in Oz. Watched this reasonably quickly, for no apparent reason as it’s just okay. I found the opening episode quite annoying as I thought it was full of stereotypes and lazy writing but it picks up, has some twists, some amusing parts and it’s shot very nicely. 2.5/5 (3 at most)
  5. Just watched all 3 series over the last 10 days. Fab stuff and no fluff. Fair play to all involved as it’s zings by, it dealt with lots of subjects really well even with the lack of time it spent on them. One thing though…
  6. I can still remember watching In The Heat Of The Night for the first time in my my teens (30 plus years ago), such a great film and great lead actor. Not seen enough of his work but Defiant Ones and Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner are highly recommended. RIP to one of the all time greats.
  7. Currently 28 on Amazon, pretty sure this is the same one. Aberlour 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70 cl with Gift Box https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B009SS9CKY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_4E00SGHE3AK6RRRMHCC2
  8. Cheers for all the suggestions. I've passed them on and suggested youtube if they're not sure on any titles.
  9. I'm not a 100%. I think that's what the kids want, plus also cost i think. The parents aren't and have never been gamers so they'll just be steered by the kids. Horizon is rated as 16 so they won't buy that.
  10. Hi, coming in here for some advice please. My brother in law is getting a PS4 for 2 kids (boy age 9 & girl 11/12) and doesn't know what games to get. I've not played the PS4 for a couple of years and it's normally adult rated stuff. I've mentioned Crash racing for them all, lego games but is there any immersive adventure game for the girl ? Current Harry Potter is rated 16 so that's out of the question. My sister in law has mentioned Brady Quest and Gang Beasts for the lad and they are looking at Sonic racing for them all. Any help would be much appreciated.
  11. I’m going to start making Sazerac’s again (plus old fashioned’s). Sazerac rye is currently £30 on Amazon, should I plump for this or go for something else? Woodford do a rye and I very much like their bourbon. I've used Old Overholt in the past, not so easy to get hold of now. I’ll be doing a mixture of rye and cognac. I’ll probably go for Tesco’s finest XO or Sainsbury’s VS Grand Cru.

    Disco Elysium

    I'm on day 4 so far and enjoying it immensely but I do need to be in the mood for the amounts of text and speech. I'm finding the controls fine but traversing some screens is a little fiddly. As said by others, the voice acting and variety is so good. The Limbic system is currently my favourite but all the different parts of you psyche are great. I'm definitely going straight back in after this playthrough ends, i fancy a much more extreme and edgy playthrough.

    Disco Elysium

    Been waiting for this. Bought and downloading, £10 off with some reward points. Can't play it until Thursday evening though. I'm hoping all the hype holds up.
  14. West Ham wasting good possession in the first half and forgetting how to play in the second. Palace much better in the second though and Moyes should have reacted quicker. Palace nearly getting a winner late on too. Top still, just. Hoping for a draw in the Chelsea v Liverpool game.
  15. Limbo This was my first visit to the cinema since before Covid and what a great film. Tragedy, quirky characters, joy, comedy and some lovely shots of a barren Scotland. I wasn’t sure what to expect after the opening scene as I’d not read anything about it beforehand. Recommended. 4/5 In Search of a Midnight Kiss Never heard of this before, watched it round a friends on the smallest TV I’ve seen a film in since my teens. Suited the style quite well in reality, it’s an off kilter acerbic rom com in B&W. A good slice of that era and very enjoyable. Scoot McNairy is fab in it too. 3.5/5
