There a good interview with Mercurio by Mary Beard on the iPlayer.

He talks through his shows starting with Bodies which is also on the iPlayer.

The wife and I are big fans of his work even though he was bought up in Cannock (Wolverhampton should definitely claim him as our own).
Yeah saw that last week

Just seen the advert for the new Line of Duty. With Kelly Macdonald. Two of my favourites in one :)

series 1 was pretty good. I watched episode 1 back when it was on tv, but missed the rest, and never got around to it.
I generally love all good/odd artificial intelligence related stuff! did my dissertation on it years ago.
Saw enough to be interested in going on to series 2.

Some series are good but have run their course after 1 series. Humans falls into that category for me as does Designated Survivor and Ratched

yeah I can see that. I can't see where Ratched would go next. Not seen designated survivor, and part of me wonders really if there is anything significant that can develop the Humans story, although the series did leave an opportunity clear.

Just watched the first episode of the Flight Attendant: thought it was very good and definitely hooked us in. Just got to find time to fit it around season 5 of Better Call Saul and rewatching series 2 and 3 of Stranger Things... and we haven't started Your Honor yet which we definitely want to start!

Cheers for the heads up on BCS was unaware it was back on. I really enjoyed Your Honor. It’d not too long so you can rattle through it quite quickly.

It's not, season 5 was the one that came out a year or so ago

Yeah, we are just catching up after arriving to the Breaking Bad/BCS party a bit late...

Definitely recommend The Flight Attendant though.

Thought it was pretty poor opening episode in all honesty. Presumably not helped by filming during Covid but seemed really stilted to me and been listening to its own press as it tried to force in as many police acronyms and Northern Irish sayings for Adrian Dunbar as possible. On the subject of which, filmed in Belfast which is a really recognisable city but clearly not meant to be set there.
