What's good on TV this weather?

Recommended Posts

I watch Minder, The Professionals and The Sweeney in afternoons; is there anything else good on TV nowadays?

Been going through the movie channels once a week and recording anything decent on. TCM surprisingly has a much better selection than Sky Movies, which is full of shite.

 

And BT Sport is showing a lot of these "30 for 30" sport documentaries. Never watched any of them, but heard good things about them.

I've got Sky movies and Netflix as part of my package but never really bothered with them till now. Most of the TV that I end up watching is on free-to-air channels.

I don't really watch much telly, but Better Call Saul is excellent and even better than Breaking Bad, IMO. Jimmy's gradual transformation from Lovable Rouge in Series 1 to out-and-out Sociopath in Series 5 is brilliantly scripted and acted.

I enjoy Better Call Saul so much more Breaking Bad.  Money Heist is also worth a watch, but best seen in original language with subtitles.  And Friday Night Dinner is back on Channel 4.

Tiger King. Netflix. 

 

America personified.

 

Trick37 and Simpleton McYank probably beg to differ.

Hard to motivate myself to watch an entire film about a stupid jumped up outfit like Leeds but I might give at a whirl during the week on demand.

The site is supposed to be a place for the extended 'family' of Morton supporters - having an affinity with people that you don't know, because you share a love of your local football club. It's not supposed to be about point scoring and showing how 'clever' or 'funny' you are, or just being downright rude and offensive to people you don't know, because you can get away with it. Unfortunately, it seems the classic case of people who have little standing/presence in real life, use this forum as a way of making themselves feel as if they are something. It's sad, and I've said that before..

 

So, having been on Morton forums for about 15 years I guess, I've had enough... well done t*ssers, another Morton supporter driven away. You can all feel happy at how 'clever' you are

I would have said it was more about Brian Clough's hatred for Leeds, than it was about Leeds themselves. Give it a try, I'm sure you'll approve.

I have zero affection for Leeds either, but it's a great film.

Chernobyl is compelling viewing

 

Chernobyl is a fantastic watch. It can be quite grim at times, but shows the incredible lengths the Soviet Union went to prevent contamination, as well as misinformation. I was completely hooked when it was shown on Sky Atlantic last year.

VT viewer verdict: Somehow even Leeds manage to emerge looking not too shabby compared to the utterly repellent central character of Clough. Not so much 'a cunt but a good cunt' like, say, Malcolm Tucker in the Thick of It (and In the Loop) but rather just an utter cunt like Tom Cruise in every Tom Cruise film ever made.

 

Other than that it was a decent film though.

Apparently Clough was a complete cunt in real life.

Mid-eighties Football coach surrounded by topless young boys and wearing only a pair of shorts, and you think that's normal?

Clough was "old school", which is to say a violent alcoholic. Great manager, no question, but his methods well and truly belong in the past.

Now before Gavin goes, I'd like to ask him one more question.


Do you like Abba?
