    The Leftovers. (HBO show)

    This is up there with the best American TV ever made. And can stand alongside The Sopranos and the rest of the greats. The acting from Theroux and Carrie Coon is out of this World, it's constantly surprising and despite the crazy set-up it's still full of heart. I'm due a rewatch.

    Killing Eve - BBC Spy thriller, comedy, drama

    I have one episode left. I need everyone to pirate this so we can talk about it because it's amazing. Jodie Comer should be a superstar.

    What sports have you seen live? Which would you like to go to?

    Totally forgot about American sports. Been to a couple of baseball games which were mind-numbling boring. Exactly like that bit in the Simpsons when Homer goes and realises that you need to be drunk to enjoy it. Also been to a couple of NFL games - saw Colin Kaepernick playing for the 49ers in their last season at Candlestick Pk, that was pretty cool. He couldn't throw a pass to save his life that day though.

    Papillon Remake - Charlie Hunman, Rami Malek

    Imagine casting Charlie Hunnan in a Steve McQueen role. James Corden getting the Marlon Brando parts in remakes must surely be the next stop on this never ending cultural death-spiral.

    What sports have you seen live? Which would you like to go to?

    100's of Gaelic football, hurling and football matches. Mostly in Ireland, England and Scotland. Followed the Irish football team abroad a few times - been to a few nice places. Also saw a few MLS matches when I was in America 4 or 5 years ago. Been to the Tour De France and the Giro but not since the 90's. Loved being at the big races and I'll definitely try to get back to France again. Watched a lot of amateur boxing back in the day but haven't been to a fight in a few years. Think I'll try to get to Belfast in the Summer to watch Michael Conlon. I'd love to get to an Olympics or a World Cup. Dublin are hosting 4 matches in the European Championships in 2020 so I'll be all over getting tickets for that. They'll be super rare though.

    Finished up this season last night and enjoyed it all the way through. The last two episodes were fab. the pokemon one especially. This is such a nice show.

    Good new horror films

    I watched an Irish zombie film yesterday called The Cured. The rage virus has hit Europe but science has developed a cure. The problem is that after being 'cured' the former infected can remember all their actions while infected. There's tension with the newly returned ex-zombies trying to re-integrate into society and the possibility of a re-lapse. Ellen Page and Tom Vaughan Lawlor star. This was all right but suffered from it's tiny budget. There were about 10 extras in scenes that needed 100's. It's quite tense in places and I enjoyed seeing the filming locations around Dublin. An interesting mix of 28 Days Later and The Returned. One for fans of the genre.

    Best three films from this list of 15?

    A Dark Song is my favourite horror film of the last few years.

    Football Thread 2017/18

    Blows my mind that Giroud gets in ahead of Benzema, Martial and Laca. And I love Olly G.

    Nice interview with the boss in the guardian. Talks about Arteta a bit but is reluctant to be too praising. Seems to be enjoying his new life, having a nice slow breakfast for a change. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2018/may/17/arsene-wenger-interview-emptied-desk-arsenal-mikel-arteta

    Killing Eve - BBC Spy thriller, comedy, drama

    Oh, I had assumed it was on BBC over here as well as America. Doesn't look like it's on until later this year.
  13. Started this last night and watched the first two episodes. Sandra Oh is a desk-bound spy based in London. She's hunting Jodie Comer - a glamourous and talented international assassin who has killed people all across Europe. Written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) based on some book. It also stars the likes of David Haig and Darren Boyd so you have that nice BBC feel. The two episodes I watched were really good. Funny and violent with some proper shocking bits. The two leads are fantastic, the locations are fab and the music is excellent. Best thing I've watched in ages. Anyone else following it?

    Football Thread 2017/18

    Didn't think there could be a more annoying goal celebration than Griezmans 'two thumbs and little fingers extended' one . But then he pulls that 'L-Dance' from Fortnite out of the bag.

    Netflix Recommendations - See OT for other thread

    I Am Not A Witch is on there now. I've not seen it, I'll probably watch over the weekend, but it got strong reviews when it came out last year.
