Twin Peaks S3. This is probably the most weird thing I have seen on tv so far.

finished The Tunnel Season 3, very decently ended, although the formula was starting to get tired this season and frankly Elise, though watchable, isnt a patch on the lupine Saga Noren of "The Bridge". However the guy playing her partner, Steve Dhillon? he was on searing form. This show is really about him. I hope he gets his own series.

been having a boxfest of 'Spiral' and really enjoying it!
Preferred cinemas:
Central London and North London as far north as the Hampstead Everyman including Picturehouse Hackney/Notting Hill Gate - but not Wood Green and North Finchley as they are just a bit too far.

Hey!

No I have not watched any of these finales! It seems that I cannot watch a show till the end unless I binge watch it. The latest one that I completed is ’13 reasons why’. A lot of people find that it is for teenagers. I loved it nonetheless. Did any of you watch it?

watching -

Modus - bit of a weak premise. but kim cattrall as the American Prez is good amusement factor.

Strike - wow such bad writing, and completely unlikely characters (lead is a son of a millionaire rockstar but penniless ex marine wtf lol so incongruous that it feels like hes been randomly generated by a computer) but where else do you get a disabled private investigator. like a forgotten 70s tv PI series other than that, but set today.

The Coroner - pleasant if you want a seaside set police show, bizarrely populated by only three police so its no surprise that the local coroner has to do all dirty work. One of the dullest leading actors in existence though. And why on earth theres only one 16 year old (coroners daughter) in the whole of town is a bigger mystery than anything else. Shes the real murderer obviously.

I didn't reralise kim kattral was starring in another TV series.

I saw her recently in Piers Morgan life stories and I thought she was really interesting. Shes from Liverpool originally. I'm watching her in the Sex and the City series re-runs and think she's brilliant in that. I will check out Modus then.

Keeping Faith on iplayer, actually a pretty good boxed set for the Bank Holiday weekend if you can finish it in time.
