I thought somewhere to comment on or suggest TV programs might be a good subject as it tends to get put in amongst other threads so not easy to find later on.


We watched the last of the Vigil series on Friday night, it's been quite well done, about faslane and Russian spies on a submarine, also started the second series of Manhunt with Clunsie playing a very odd part as a rozza.


Also a really good USA series, man with a plan, very funny.

I felt Vigil was great until the last 30 mins. It all seemed so convenient.
I'm saving Manhunt till we can binge.

Just started ploughing through the ten episodes of The Vietnam War we recorded some time ago. Remarkable historic facts and lots I never knew.

We differ there then Ray, last episode it all came together, and being a bit of a softie I liked the way the relationship got sorted too, the only bit I didn't like was the cliff edge ending, stoopid.


Not sure where a second series might go if they do one.


Did you see series one of Manhunt?


Also, anyone watching "The Cleaner"

We've stuck with the very odd series of Blacklist too although we have questioned where the hell it's going, a bit like Lost in a way, we gave up on that quite early.

It could have been there was a real Submarine series running at the same time which gave a more realistic vision of inside a sub. Ironically even they had tech and mechanical problems within the series.

There are now so many oldish detective series doing the rounds they seem somewhat tired now. Nothing new to get excited about. As for old Vera what a mumsy.

Bit late for the Cleaner now as nearly over.

If that Veitnam series is the National Geographic one giving accounts from US soldiers it is pretty astonishing stuff Ray.

It was a BBC 4 series Alan. But I believe it was an American production. America is shown in a bad and bungling light and even Kennedy was more interested in votes than lives.

Tbf she lets me watch Friday night rugby on BBC2 Wales so it's a fair trade off.

I have a habit, lately, of falling asleep at about 9pm. I missed, therefore, most of the submarine one. Chris just watches what comes up in front of him so if the channel was on the wrong one for Ridley Road then he missed it so cannot fill me in next week (assuming I stay awake for it). Strictly Come Dancing is a must for me :)

D'you now, it draws you in...

I read the paper whilst its one and only stop reading to watch the actually dance bit and the judges comments. I cant abide all the professional dancers and endless fillers used to pad out both programmes.

However I fins myself saying things like "nice footwork" and "elbow needs to be higher" or "too much separation".

At a particularly weak moment I also try and second guess the judges scores!

Is there any hope for me?

No G. I feel Strictly has run it's course and is becoming so 'samey' plus I can't stand that Winkelman thing. And as for the Take Two through the week it makes me vomit.
