    If you're of a certain age and liked the 'Karate Kid' movie take a look at Cobra Kai. It's set 30 years on from the original.

    Enjoyed it too. If you like the story line of this season try designated survivor with Keefer Sutherland.

    I'm six episodes into the The Crossing on Amazon. It is so frickin good I can't tell you. A touch of scifi - which I like - but such good human drama. Layered. And a really gripping thriller to boot. Very nicely shot, directed and acted with a great script. Did I say I liked it?!

    Thanks!! I will give this one a try.

Great to see such an unusual take on the Roman invasion of Britain. Hard to get past the Donovan theme music though. Who the hell chose that?

    Just started watching Shetland - latest series - not sure what it is about this crime drama set in... well, you've guessed it, the Shetland Isles, but I like it.

    Watched McMafia - slick and watchable, but just a trifle far-fetched...
    And so do I. On swedish television tomorrow. As you might know, Shetland is based on Ann Cleves crime novels. A good watch(and read).

    Would advise anyone to watch WACO (only 6 episodes). It shows the FBI and the ATF (alcohol, tobacco and firearms) are a law unto themselves . I originally thought they were just a bunch of religious freaks who wanted to go out in a blaze of glory but even if the story is slightly exaggerated (maybe it's not) the FBI and ATF have definitely not come out of this in a good light. In fact they're responsible for a lot of unnecessary deaths (this isn't the only instance) and covered things up.

    Watched Unabomber (based on true events) about the guy who sent parcel bombs via the US mail and well worth a look imho.

    Watched godless and it was pretty good but I do have to say it was a bit same old same old. I was hoping for it to be a bit different to your normal western tbh. Maybe a more modern feel would of been the answer. Tbh making the women out to be hero's was all a bit wrong. They were lady like not the best gunslingers in town

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned this series before, but I've just started watching Godless - a Netflix production. I have to say, it is absolutely beautiful drama. Set in the 19th century in the American South West - New Mexico, Arizona, Texas - it has the lyricism of Lonesome Dove, with brilliantly portrayed characters. It stars Michelle Dockery of Downton Abbey fame and Jeff Daniels amongst others. The twist is the central location is a small mining town where nearly all the men have died following a collapse at the mine and the town is now run by the women. Worth a watch.
    Thank you for your recommondation, Hubble. The geografical setting and time period are both top notch for me. On a side note, Lonesome Dove is also on my must watch list. The first part of it is partly about the Comanches , I think`?
    Edit: I must be thinking of Comanche Moon; Another mini series which is strongly connected to Lonesome Dowe, but not as highly rated as LD.
