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.

I've not read this thread in a while, just clicked on now and I think some people have misread "The TV Thread" for "Yet another place to wreck with political stuff"

 Just got the Yellowstone bug and i cant shift it, fantastic film location and wouldent mind a few weeks in them hills.

 Oscar and Emmy winner Kevin Costner is the marquee attraction of the ensemble cast in this drama series, starring as the patriarch of a powerful, complicated family of ranchers. A sixth-generation homesteader and devoted father, John Dutton controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States. He operates in a corrupt world where politicians are compromised by influential oil and lumber corporations and land grabs make developers billions. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect, Dutton's property is in constant conflict with those it borders -- an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and America's first national park.

Today I finished The Last Dance on Netflix. Even if you are not a Basketball fan like me it is a superb sports documentary. It shows just how driven Michael Jordan was to win and the burden he felt he had, although he couldn’t have done it without Pippen and Rodman and the latter two certainly couldn’t have done it without Jordan.

We watched Greyhound last night on AppleTV. Cracking movie that needed an extra 30-40 minutes to build Das Boot levels of tension in the fight with the subs.

I’ve gone from Fear City to Unsolved Mysteries with Worlds Most Wanted next on my list

I have just watched the first two episodes of Worlds Most Wanted. Both had interesting angles on subjects I already knew the basics of. 

Recommend the second series of Dirty John (Netflix) to fans of true crime drama. This time it's about Betty Broderick with Amanda Peet and Christian Slater in the lead roles.

Never had time for Costner but in this he is very good.......as is the lass who plays his daughter.

Nothing wrong with kids' TV, if it is good. Having babysat my niece many times during the late Nineties/early Two Thousands, I saw quite a bit of that era's output.

Yes, there was some dreadful crud, plus a lot of lazy filler, but I'd stand up for Pinky & the Brain or Johnny Bravo, at least from that time. More recently, Rastamouse was a charming little show, as are Shaun the Sheep and the Danger Mouse reboot. It is a fertile ground for creative minds, who sometimes go on to do other things as well.

Edit: add Horrible Histories to that list, too.

Costner actually did a pretty decent performance in Prince of Thieves, but he and everyone else in the cast just got blown off screen by Alan Rickman's fabulous Sheriff of Nottingham.

Alright, I'll concede I like shaun the sheep but that is mainly because I love aardman. A lot of people don't realise aardman made a lot of shorts for adults as well, such as Pib and Pog and Angry Kid. 

If you've never seen Pib and Pog it's hilarious, it's essentially two cartoon creatures placed in primary school style educational video with a really soft spoken narrator but as each episode progresses it essentially turns into a black comedy where the two characters try ever more extreme ways to kill each other.

There is no way that shows like Johnny Bravo or Ren and Stimpy would be allowed now.

Today I found out that BBC 4 have started showing The Bridge from the beginning. For those who don’t know what it is it’s a Scandinavian crime drama and it is really good.

Ren & Stimpy was only just a children's show. Truly warped at times.

Sooty was really good fun when Matthew Corbett did it.

The live theatre show was performed on panto lines .. something for all ages and a brilliant Black Theatre of Prague section.

Going back to Harry Corbett days, I think Ramsbottom should have got much more airtime.

Alan - this script is terrible I’ll just do whatever I want to liven it up - Rickman . He’s just brilliant in that
