No wonder they're upset that's their job!

mocks Gods wisdom

So they're still not convinced by Peter Cook's argument that God's big enough to take it.

God is voiced by a woman

Is that because then her job would have to be the flowers for the Sunday Services.

Saw Catch-22 last night, as with most on here (apparently) I read it in my 20's, and found it hilarious, last nights episode was a bit slow, but will stick with it for now.

20,000 Christians sign a petition to Netflix? Did 20,000 actually watch this on Prime, or are they just guessing because someone else took offence? and may I point out that most of the Discworld novels have the finger of Mirth pointed at some "God" or other, are they going to call on "Penguin" to ban them, despite being published by "Corgi" (The Queens favourite publisher?).

Are they sure it's not Lucifer that they have been watching? Is Good Omens on Netflix, as Lucifer is.

Good omens is on amazon prime (as was lucifer before it was cancelled last year then renewed by Netflix )

probably indicates that most of them haven’t watched it.

Anyone recognise "Crusher" the Rugby League player on The Last Leg tonight?

I think this was probably one of the best documentary series I've ever seen. I think one of the reasons is that the makers were, and still are in love with both sides which is rare, to say the least, when the subject's war. The reasons why are fairly obvious.

The music used was outstanding too including

No idea, but I assume it is someone Adam Hills met via his Warrington PDRL experiences. He tackled a dummy of Josh Widdecombe, which basically disintegrated.

When you posted I thought it was a poster from on here.

Who knows; it could be... and I won't argue with him any more if he is.

You think wouldn't it be great to be on Gogglebox, being paid to watch TV magic. Then I realised they make you watch Blind Date!

It might be controversial... but I am quite liking the new new new Top Gear.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

One from a year or two back, but the Mrs and I have started on The Young Pope on Sky

Looks gorgeous, well written, thought provoking, great soundtrack and Jude Law is superb.  

It possibly will help if you were/are Catholic.

This one gets better and better for mine.

Yes, it is one of our easy ones when we have had a tough day of toddler battling! A nice easy watch with some pretty sharp humour, and I must admit Sofia Vergara is more watchable as every series passes! :kolobok_cool:

I watched the last couple of episodes of Chernobyl this week.

Fantastic series, can't recommend it highly enough if you've yet to see it.

Utterly gripping from start to finish.

Thank you. Sky ch 179 are showing Due South, one of the greatest semi-Canadian cop shows.

Diefenbaker is the main dog, Vecchio is my ex-wifes crush

That show's name brings back great memories! Has it aged well?

And what is the name of the Channel?

Watched the final episode of Years and Years tonight. Then straight away watched the news. I wasn't 100% sure that it wasn't the same programme.

Yes the first episodes depressed us as much as the news so stopped watching much like the news .... and needs relegating to a political thread.

Not an easy watch at times, but very good. Some of the scenarios played out that would have been considered unbelievable fantasy just a few years ago are now quite plausible. Unfortunately.

Much of it was filmed very close to where I live (for example the beach scene and the camp in the final episode).
