I think Band of Brothers was a series on TV so we bought a boxed set of DVD and so far not taken the cellophane off. Much of it was filmed near here so was interested in the locations.
The Wire was really gripping but although I was glued to the first six or eight episodes my wife was not keen so 'we' gave up.

You must watch Band of Brothers Ray.

I watched an episode of Sneaky Pete last night and Bosch. Thought Sneaky Pete was a bit lame and just couldnt get into Bosch despite all the recommendations on here. Gave it about half an hour and just thought it was a but "meh".

So all I had left was the remake of Anne of Green Gables which actually was really good. Is there something wrong with me?

Probably

I think you need to watch more that 30 mins to get into the story Barry, mind you in the second series they all begin to sound a bit tired and less enthusiastic about the acting. I will plod on to get to the end of the mystery then go onto something lighter and hopefully funny.

What does "Meh" mean? Ah, expressing a lack of interest or enthusiasm, is that you or the actors.?

We did watch the Band of Brothers series when it was on TV. Yes it was great but a few years ago now.
Now struggling with episode 3 of Deadwater Fell. So far a drag.

Which one are you referring to Jan?

By the time I've watched one episode if I've found myself checking how long it's got left or just weary of it or not warming to the characters that's it for me. I think the problem is there has been so much brilliant stuff over the last ten years once you have seen all the best stuff nothing comes close and finding gems amongst the also rans is very difficult.

I like to be into something that's got at least four seasons where your literally dying to get onto the next episode. Not had that for a while now.

I hate the word "meh" dunno why I used it. Means bland uninteresting beige.

I think the key generally for me at least is to avoid the American mainstream network stuff (not always) and seek out the subscription cable series. No real censorship, usually more gritty and niche or off the wall.

Quite right Jan. If I stopped watching stuff after half an hour because it hadn't gripped me I'd have missed a lot of good tele.

It often take me a couple of episodes but I persist if they were well recommended and providing they don't break my golden rules. 1. No mythical supernatural fantasy ****. 2. No glaring historical errors or rewriting of history, like the Americans having won WW2 single handedly. 3. Language out of place. If somebody says something like No **** Sherlock in a pirate movie that's it ruined for me. OK that's unlikely but using words or expressions long before they could possibly have been invented is what I mean.

There was a series about the Manhattan Project which I thought might be well worth a watch. I downloaded it and when Mrs Eb was away I started to watch it only to discover during the first few minutes that it was pure fiction connected to the real story only by the stolen name and by characters who bore the names of the real scientists. That rendered it pointless for me. You may say that it was just fiction and that's true but I'd have ended up with fictional details mixed up with historical information in my head if I'd watched it.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

I got bored of that as well although I think I managed one season. Dreary.

I think I'll stick on the inbetweeners again tonight after a few bevs and a jam

Ray Donovan is quite good. Not sure if it finished or if there was going to be a sixth season

Also homeland season 8 is back soon. That is a great series if your into spies, cia, terrorism and war stuff. Great characters and acting
