Legion - anyone else watched this? I have just finished watching the first season and it is just weird. I kept hoping it would make sense, or at least become entertaining but it is not really for me. Mind it is very much like an odd horror movie and I have never found those anything other than boring.

{Ed001's Note - I was really hoping for more comedy with it having Jermain Clement in it.}

Anybody else been watching Britannia? Seems odd so far.

yes, not been great, hoping it would be a Thrones esq Series, no where near it !!

{Ed001's Note - there were a lot of talk that it would be like a new must watch show, but I have watched the first 8 episodes and it has not really grabbed me. Having said that, I never got into Thrones in its first couple of seasons either.}

I tried that Knightfall show the other day to put on in the background and just leave it running during a busy day. Never realised there were just 2 episodes! Not enough to decide if it is any good or not really. Does anyone know if that was the lot or if they are making more?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jan 2018 19:19:10
I am still undecided on this show, after about 7 episodes, but I am still watching it so I guess it is ok enough for a first season.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2018 16:57:31
I want to watch knightfall but once its a complete series as hate waiting a week for the next episode.
I watched the first episode of britannia but it gave me a headache. Don't think I'll watch anymore.

{Ed001's Note - I think the first season is done as it has stopped at 10. As for Britannia it was just bizarre and I stopped after the 8th.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Mar 2018 17:16:39
Cheers edd I will give it a go.

{Ed001's Note - it hasn't really gone anywhere yet to be honest.}

Game of thrones 😢😍 such brilliance and sadness in the last episode.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2017 05:04:03
The only saving grace for this season is the major plotlines occuring. Everything else has been dreadful, went from a show with excellent writing to the sorry stare it has become now. How much of it is down to the GOT executives having to cram everything into last remaining two season, I don't know.

Had another Mr Robot moment watched the first episode of Ozark and it drew me in I thought this is going to be great then watched the next 6 and absolutely nothing happened so give up watching it.

Basically there's a few men who launder money for the Mexican cartel and it starts with a couple of men who try to steal 8m from the Mexican boss which he finds out so he does what any cartel boss does but one man begs for his life tells him he'll earn that back plus extra and I'm afraid that's where it ends all that happens after that is he starts buying businesses to hide the dirty money in.

Oh and it's Jason Bateman in a serious role he's no good in comedy roles which he is mainly known for.

{Ed001's Note - I have to say that show never appealed to me at all, I read a precis and thought 'naw'. It sounds crap.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2017 07:08:22
Wish I'd done the same ed to be honest.

I'm just really struggling for something to watch lately might do season 2 and 3 of Fargo liked the first season also may give penny dreadful a go

{Ed001's Note - have you tried Powers yet? If so is it any good?}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2017 07:19:14
i haven't watched powers it didn't appeal to me at all

{Ed001's Note - ah ok, it did get mixed reviews.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2017 01:43:43
I really enjoyed powers but I think a big bit depends on how you feel about effects as yeah they just aren't good, if you can ignore that is a good show! TBH not just effects it just isn't a good looking show. As for recommendations Peaky Blinders is a quality one!

Last night I went on a bit of a youtube bender watching old Game of Thrones clips and it got me marvelling just how brilliant the early seasons were, it also made me a little sad ahead of season seven knowing that the show is unlikely to hit those heights again.

The brilliance of Game of Thrones was never the dragons or battle scenes or any of the magical side of things, it was the characters and how their own personal ambitions and motivations clashed with each other. I loved how there were no straight up villains, when Tywin Lanister assassinated Rob Stark it wasn’t because he was a ‘baddie’ he did it to bring a war to end and saved thousands of lives (shades of America using the atomic bomb in WW2). The best scenes had no action at all, just brilliant dialogue, most of the plot occurred in the small council chamber as various schemers jockeyed for position and power.

The show today is very different, there is less ambiguity about the character’s motivation, Cersai and Euron are straight up villains to be defeated whilst Tyrion, Jon and Dani are the goodies coming to save the day. Brilliant dialogue has been replaced by spectacle and whilst I’d never deny that set pieces like the ‘Battle of the B***erds’ are incredible they’re nowhere near as interesting as a character using guile to achieve the same thing.

I will watch the last two seasons religiously, I’m too invested in the show to skip it, I just hope that, as we approach the climax, the show still has some tricks up its sleeve and we’re not just heading towards a climax where were the goodies defeat the baddies and everyone lives happily ever after.

I think it's just a case of them having to wrap up things quickly. A 10 season series would probably have done complete justice to the series but that is of course not possible due to a variety of reasons.

While I agree that over the past two seasons and even in Dragonstone, they've gone for big moments (The Red Toast? That whole scene was a bit illogical too me but cool nonetheless) , I think it's just something us long time viewers will have to accept.

And regarding your point of being clear good and bad characters ,I agree to some extent. For me they've completely screwed up Daenerys's story arc. The whole Mereen plotline was just boring to me. However GRMM has said that it'll be a bittersweet ending so hopefully there's more shades to her personality. Perhaps she sacrifices her life after all the effort she has put in for The Iron Throne.

But then again there are characters like Jaime and Sandor who have had brilliant story arcs throughout the series. Sandor was the star of the last episode for me. I think he has moved away from The Hound is now just Sandor Clegane.

So any Game of Thrones fans here? The new trailer looks absolutely fantastic with dragons and flaming swords and what not. Just finished rewatching the whole series again and the amount of hints and intricacies to smal things is absolutely fascinating.

{Ed001's Note - I don't mind it, just can't keep track of all the people as I forget who is who. My dad is obsessed with it, mainly because they film a lot of it by where they live.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2017 19:32:37
Yeah. That's why it gets better every time you binge watch it. So you can keep track f everything and pick up on the details.
Till where have you watched Eddard 001?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I tend to forget anything that is not football related to be honest.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 07:55:40
Haha. Heavy workload these days I guess. I'd sure be willing to help out anywhere if you guys need it.
I actually sent a reply asking about the football news views but I don't know if it went through or not

{Ed033's Note - Hi Reet, what about using the Liverpool Rumours contact form (at the bottom of the home page) if you want to be an Ed of some kind.

22 Jun 2017 08:55:27
Caught up on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. over the past few days, mostly because I was just interested to see how they tied it in with the films. Despite the appearance of Ghost Rider, a character I like a lot, I was really disappointed with this show. It made a few references to events from the films, but it was very much separated.

It never felt like the same universe that has Capt America etc in it. They are so hugely conspicuous by their absence, even when events would clearly have attracted the involvement of some of them. Every reference to them, or the films, just made it more obvious that they were missing.

They need to solve that problem, to make their absence less conspicuous. Either by creating storylines that properly integrate with the films', including a few of the heroes in the show or by running storylines that clearly would not call for the involvement of the superheroes.

I watched Mr Robot over the last few days, admittedly I tend to not concentrate that hard on what I am watching as I am busy editing, but it was hard work. Not hard work as in rubbish, hard work as in difficult to follow what was going on. It really does mess with your head. Now I have watched it all the way through, I have no idea if I actually enjoyed it or not! What I do know is that it kept me watching all the way through and made me want to see what happened next.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jun 2017 21:57:11
That's exactly how I found it ed. I never get much time to watch tv or film nowadays, but I heard good reviews of Mr robot and thought I would give it a go. It's not the best nor the worst thing I've watched.

{Ed001's Note - I am still trying to figure out what it was!}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2017 22:51:57
the trailer to it looked brilliant (the coffee shop scene) and I couldn't wait to watch it then I watched it and part of my life I will never get back I thought it was terrible one of the worst series I've ever watched

{Ed001's Note - so you enjoyed it then? I am a little unsure dd, you should get off that fence.....}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jul 2017 15:15:38
Ed honestly I'd rather be stripped naked and dragged over broken glass shocking series add to that the next series I watched was wayward pines and that was on par

Watching line of duty atm and I'm really enjoying that as I really don't like British series.

One to look out for ed only seen the trailer but looks good midnight Texas

{Ed001's Note - the trailer for Inhumans looked interesting.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jul 2017 15:33:11
Yes just had a look does look like one of the better marvel series but suppose that could be because the others have been piss poor

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2017 07:01:17
Any good shows anyone can recommend? With the season coming to an end I will have a bit of time to watch TV.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2017 21:22:15
Two ends of the spectrum:

West world (takes a while to get going but is great)

Rick and Morty (fairly well known show but only recently started watching it, funny as!)

{Ed001's Note - West World does look good, I have been meaning to watch it. Thanks I will give that a try. I have seen Rick and Morty a few times it's ok but not something you can have on in the background while editing.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2017 14:19:06
If you're into tech then you should check out silicon valley. Comedy/drama about what happens when success comes to those least prepared for it. Three seasons of it so it should keep you busy.

{Ed001's Note - I will have a look for that cheers.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2017 08:19:52

I really enjoyed vikings, the last ship, lucifer and an old one but one I've only recently watched dexter

{Ed001's Note - I have heard of the others, but not the last ship. What is that about?}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2017 08:28:55
Easier to copy and paste but here you go

At the helm of the USS Nathan James en route to the Arctic, Capt. Tom Chandler learns that the destroyer will be in the best possible place -- a circumstance his crew must utilize -- to save humanity from extinction. A virus has wiped out more than half the population since the ship embarked, and despite orders from the U.S. government to return, Chandler -- believing home is now a shadow of itself -- decides the safest place to develop a vaccine is at sea. That task falls mainly to virologist Dr. Rachel Scott, a civilian originally assigned to the Nathan James to study birds. "The Last Ship" is based on a novel by William Brinkley and is executive-produced by filmmaker Michael Bay ("Transformers").

{Ed001's Note - ah ok. Is it new then? Or have I just been in a bubble and missed the show up until now?}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2017 08:29:41
Also another one I like even just for the fight scenes

Into the badlands

{Ed001's Note - I was thinking about trying that one, so I will have to look into it during the summer.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2017 08:31:53
There's 3 seasons of it finished and it's been renewed for a 4th and 5th season

{Ed001's Note - so I have been in a bubble then! That's usual for me, I never really watch TV other than football.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 May 2017 03:34:33
Just a heads up Dave to not bother watching Dexter after season 4. One of the worst if not worst series finales iv'e ever watched.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jun 2017 16:04:45
Prison Break
Walking Dead (although it's going nowhere)
Wayward pines
Stranger things (got a great 80's movie vibe)

All good shows if you've not watched any Ed.

{Ed001's Note - I hated lost and most of those I tried and didnt get into to be honest mate. But thanks for the suggestions.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jun 2017 22:31:44
Just remembered dirk gently holistic detective is a great shout if you have Netflix! Also not a show but new film on Netflix called headshot. has the main guy from the raid in it so assuming a it's good!

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2017 07:01:56
Iron Fist (2017)

Let me start by saying so far have been a if fan of netflixes marvel shows. Jessica jones was solid, Luke cage orginal, and daredevil brilliant (particularly the last season with punisher!) but have tried watching the first episode of this 3 times and haven't finished it once.

Is just bad, dunno how to put it. The main character is unlike able, the plot is slow and worst of all seems more focused on business strategy stuff then martial arts. Sounds silly but with the concept they are working with was hoping it would be more of an action driven show. may try pick it up later but for now can't be bothered really

{Ed001's Note - wow, really that bad?}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2017 18:30:20
TBH yeah. have watched four episodes and can't remember 1 decent fight scene. compared to daredevil which had a fantastic scene where he takes out a gang inside a building in first episode. Which was epic!

Sorry but for the premise of it expected it to outshine the other shows in regards to fight scenes.also is boring and the main character is just so annoying and unlike able you just want to round house him when you see him.shame as thoroughly enjoyed all the other shows

{Ed001's Note - that is gutting, I have been really looking forward to seeing it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Mar 2017 08:39:40
Does anybody watch modern family?

Started it a few weeks back and I can't think of a programme that has made me laugh as frequently as this, if you haven't seen it i'd recommend it highly just an easy watch to kill 20 minutes or so!

{Ed001's Note - never seen it, what is it about?}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Mar 2017 11:17:22
typical dysfunctional family sitcom but the characters are likeable, and the script is brilliant. if you enjoy comedies this is perfect!

{Ed001's Note - ok mate, I will check it out if it is ever on when I am scanning for something to watch.}

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Mar 2017 14:24:37
Yeah I watch it too mate, good sitcom to kill 20 min plus it has Sofia Vergara ed01 so I'm sure that's one good reason to watch the show.

{Ed001's Note - ah ok thanks, now I actually know the show you mean as someone was talking about her and I had to google who on earth she was. That show came up in the search results, so I have seen a bit of it, but only a snatch of it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Feb 2017 08:46:49
11.22.63 -

James franco plays teacher Jake Epping who's diner owner friend reveals a secret rabbit hole that heads back to 1960, and his "mission" is to go back and stop JFK getting assassinated, this means he has to find out what really happened whether that be lee Harvey Oswald as someone who worked alone or if there is more to it than was ever revealed. Has twists and turns and more storylines that the main running JFK shooting. Its only 9/ 10 episodes and is really well acted. highly recommend.

{Ed001's Note - what is it called?}

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Feb 2017 10:24:26
11.22.63 is the title.

{Ed001's Note - oh sorry I never noticed that, I assumed that was the timestamp! Old age there on my part, going blind I think.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Feb 2017 10:57:58
haha I should have made it clearer Ed!

{Ed001's Note - it is my fault, when I looked again I could see it, I just wasn't thinking.}

Fear The Walking Dead

I am not the biggest fan of The Walking Dead, to be perfectly honest I find it a bit boring and long winded personally, with too much drama and not enough action. So I watched this hoping, as I had been led to believe, it would be a lot more urgent with more action, as the zombies took over. What I got was very much more of the same, just with different characters and in a setting when the zombies were just beginning, rather than after they have control.

That did add a little more in the way of interesting storylines, dealing with the outbreak, the military etc, which made it more appealing than the original show. At least in my opinion anyway. The weak point, for me, is the characters. I just did not like any of the main group. Not one. In fact I was growing to dislike them each more and more by the episode. Instead of empathising with them and rooting for them to survive, I simply did not care if they died. In some respects it would have been a relief if some of them were killed off.

Admittedly I have only seen the one season of it, which I think is all that has been released so far, so I will probably give it another go with a second season. Mainly in the hope that there are new characters introduced and the family it centres around are pruned out nice and early. As such, I find it difficult to recommend it to anyone who is not a big fan of the Walking Dead.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Mar 2017 14:27:04
I'm surprised you managed to even get through the season ed. Stopped a couple of episodes in after I clocked it was the same garbage. I've already got the walking dead to disappoint me don't need a new show.

{Ed001's Note - I was only watching to see the family get killed off (hopefully) as I found myself disliking them.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2017 19:31:03
Highly recommend veep and archer for any of you looking for new sitcoms.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Feb 2017 20:13:16
What is Veep? I have seen Archer, that is the animation one right? If so, personally I did not enjoy it enough to bother with.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2017 23:08:52
Veep is a political comedy staring Julia Dreyfus and TBH a pretty funny show. Personally love archer but all my mates hate it. also it's always sunny Philadelphia is a good sitcom or arrested development but takes a while to get into

{Ed001's Note - ah ok cheers, will have a look at Veep. Also never heard of the other two, to be honest.}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jan 2017 15:10:21
I know your not a fan ed001 but I do love Gotham just got to the mid season break in three and it's class if anyone is a batman fan I would reccomend this highly. Great to see the journey of the villains, arguably the more interesting characters in DC.

{Ed001's Note - has it improved then? The first season was awful.}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jan 2017 16:44:28
TBH I have enjoyed it all. but since they have put more emphasis on the villains in particular penguin and riddler the shows just gone up a level. I like it as it's a different take on the 'batman universe' rather than the Bruce parents die and now he's a vigilante story. You get to see what makes the villains evil and build their characters. The DC movie directors could learn a thing or two from Gotham.

{Ed001's Note - I will try it again when I get a chance then.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2017 08:39:25
just caught up with series 3 over the weekend and the series is a huge improvement on the first, has more of a long running story. Jim Gordon annoys me slightly but the villans in the series make it worth a watch, Onceared do you think jermome is coming back into it?

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2017 18:30:39
100% Jerome is coming back and can't wait to see it how it plays out. I personally like Jim, but bullock is a great character as well. In fact there's not many characters I do dislike. But I'm just a batman freak I've even just brought the batman tell tale game!

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2017 23:43:23
The Whispers

New show which is basically about every kid in a local area all start having the same imaginary friend called Drill. Who convinces them all to play in dangerous games which is investigated by an FBI specialist.

Read a similar synopsis was really excited as was hoping for a creepy/horror type show but isn't. Half way through and is a sci-fi show and a disappointing one at that. Acting/dialogue is sup standard and tbh just watching it now because I'm obsessive and want to know what the imaginary character is.

Shame as if done well was an interesting concept but just not done well.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2017 13:36:04
Just wondered what peoples opinions of Sherlock were? It's personally one of my favorite shows but there has been mixed reviews online.

{Ed001's Note - I took my daughter to see it at the cinema and we really enjoyed it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2017 21:12:39
First two episodes were good, but suffered from A) victim of their own success (the bar for that show is set so high that anything above brilliant is seen as bad) and B) the two year wait for the show meant everyone expected a lot.

As for the final episode thought it was brilliant and original. The main twist (sorry if any spoilers are ahead) but his sisters game was very original and hinted by the characters dialogue early in the episode. Added to that brought back Moriarty in a good way.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jan 2017 15:07:41
Im looking for a new series to get into, but my problem is my concentration is awful so unless i'm gripped early I give up, I've watched peaky blinders, GOT, The blacklist, Orphan Black (Amazing series for anyone who hasn't watched it), stranger things, all the main stream series that are heavily advertised but I want something new any recommendations?


{Ed001's Note - Lucifer? I love that show.}

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Jan 2017 09:11:31
ive watched series one of Lucifer, it was more of a programme I could just watch in the background but it was enjoyable, have you watched supernatural ed?

{Ed001's Note - yes and it was crap for pre-pubescent girls to get excited over the leads, imo. Awful stuff.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2017 09:23:06
Give American Odyssey a try, only made one series unfortunately but an awesome show. Could also give Newsroom a try.

{Ed001's Note - Newsroom is good, I agree on that. What is American Odyssey? Man In The High Castle is an interesting concept, my parents have been watching that recently, I have only seen the pilot though myself, so couldn't tell you how good it is.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2017 10:53:49
American Odyssey its about soldiers coming across files about the big corporations being corrupt in regards to the war. Very interesting and can't recommend it enough.

I tried MITHC just couldn't get into it.

{Ed001's Note - is MITHC not very good then? Maybe I will leave it at just the pilot then! I have been trying to give Fear Of The Walking Dead a go lately, but I just find I can't stand any of the characters. I don't really care if they turn or not, so it is difficult to enjoy at all.

American Odyssey sounds good, I will have to give that a go.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2017 11:37:54
It just didn't hold my attention, only watched the first two episodes and gave up. Not seen FOTWD, don't think ill try it by the sound of it either. I'm currently working my way through big bang theory and my list of tv shows is getting bigger by the day!

{Ed001's Note - I detest BBT with a passion. One of the worst things I have ever had the misfortune to see.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2017 13:55:17
walking dead I've tried the first episode about 6 times and I can't get through it, its to slow for me.

man in the high castle I've heard is good but again I couldn't get into the first episode.

I think ill start Lucifer again because I got into it fairly quick but lost all interest in watching anything. having the concentration of a 5 year old is a nightmare haha!

{Ed001's Note - Fear of the Walking Dead is a little different from Walking Dead. Not really keen on either really though so I can understand you not liking it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2017 17:00:27
ED001, big bang is my go to programme when i need something in the background good mindless tv!

Gotham's next on the list, either of you seen it?

{Ed001's Note - Big Bang is just annoying. It is defo mindless though. I am not a fan of Gotham, sat through the first season, but didn't enjoy it at all.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2017 08:54:24
im a big fan of gotham, and the flash.

gotham is very un-realistic but gritty and with some great characters.

also suits i'd highly recommend if either of you haven't given that a go?

{Ed001's Note - I can't stand the Flash, it is naff. Very old A-Team style trash.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2017 13:48:08
I think that's what I like about it, its so cheesy but when it all gets into time travel etc. I have no clue what i'm watching!

I may give modern family a go heard good things?

{Ed001's Note - never seen it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2017 20:04:30
Would recommend Ray Donavan is a really good show that not many people I know watch. Also is peaky blinders any good? Got the box set for xmas but haven't bothered to start it

{Ed001's Note - Ray Donovan is excellent, I agree. I love Peaky Blinders personally.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2017 21:10:38
Cheers ed! Will have to get stuck into it then!

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jan 2017 10:34:50
ray Donovan looks worth a go!

peaky blinders is incredible! Cylian Murphy plays his part perfectly can make you hate him and love him in seconds!

{Ed001's Note - RD is very good, starts well and carries on in the same vein.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Mar 2017 15:16:42
Daredevil was pretty awesome. Has just enough realism to it to make you enjoy it, yet still fictional enough to keep it exciting. Hard to go wrong with marvel to be fair.

{Ed001's Note - good thinking, shame they stopped that show after so few episodes.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Dec 2016 18:02:44
Question guys and girls, am I the only one who thinks that Game of Thrones is rubbish?

06 Jan 2017 09:13:18
I think its amazing but did take me a while to get into, what series have you watched?
