I presume you have what they call boxed sets or iPlayer Sandra. We don't so we still have the pleasure of anticipating all the ongoing series for weeks to come.
I personally gain pleasure out of the wait and anticipation. Never found the need to pay for instant gratification. It used to be years before the latest releases were aired on TV and now it's a matter of weeks.

If you liked Killing Eve

Next up try

Breaking Bad, it takes a few episodes to get going but boy itís good!

Then start on ďPeaky BlindersĒ (they are now on series 6!) a fair bit of ďadultĒ language and certainly, at times, very violent but again itís very good drama.

Some of the Scandawegian dramas such as ďUnder the SurfaceĒ although being subtitles are also worth watching.

That I can understand, hence my comments, but have a look at Breaking Bad (Netflix) there is the odd bit of violence, but nothing like Peakyís!

I watched all of breaking bad but there was a lot of sameo sameo about it, they could have crammed it into 6 series instead of the 10 or 11 they eeked it out to


Sandra, try "the Affair"



I'm binging on The Crown at the moment (loving it) and have series 2 of Killing Eve to watch and then I think I'll try the Last Tzars and Hinterland

Noticed lately that BBC are promoting Gemma Collins podcasts. Her claim to fame as far as I can recall was being a total failure in the jungle, get me out of here, and a total flop on the dancing on ice.

But I love

The repair shop

I love how important the things are to people

Things I canít imagine could be

The experts who repair them

And I dream

What could that be like

To have something that I owned

That meant so much to me

Outside of my family I canít imagine anything

My wedding ring?

No He stands before me , so not the ring , the person as yet

So I watch and share their joy

And think in my past life

What would that thing be

Would it have been a doll, precious to me in children's homes

Given to another , that I still loved , but was far to old to love

They told me so

And I , well what could I do

A visitor

And another loved her

My doll that had shared so much with me

And life moves on

And my doll became my real life grandkids

11 of them

But in the quite times at 75

I still remember how that doll brightened some very dark days

I like the Repair Shop and how things work as I am always 'trying' to repair something or other. Delving into the innards of some machine or apparatus is intriguing although for entertainment purposes The Repair Shop tends to focus on the ownership history more than the item. So for me it's becoming just a procession of emotional owners.

Sadly we now live in a consumer throw away age where last years perfectly adequate gizmo is binned for the latest statement. One of the worst or best for dealers is the dating of car registrations telling everyone how old your ride is. Happily thats not the case here in France.

Anything of interest to me that been discarded because it stopped working I like to see if some small repair or adjustment can bring it back to life again. Just this morning I 'fixed' a walking counter someone had discarded. Just opening it up and re positioning the 'pendulum' got it working as new. A battery charger where the clips had corroded and lost contact, etc.

I think Im immune to all that violence now having just finished watching seven seasons of Sons of Anarchy which takes it to a new level.

Mind you Sandra was a big Game of Thrones fan and that was pretty violent at times.

Banshee is another good one but not for the faint hearted.

My favourite is True Blood (supernatural vampire type thing). Not to everyones taste or humour but its just fantastic. If your a bit odd like me you will enjoy it. That rules you out Andy.
